My wife and I love to travel. We have stayed in vacation rentals and done home exchanges aground the world. We offer our guests a clean, beautiful and peaceful vacation rental.

Ralph Matillo purchased this condo in 1988

The Headlands in Dana Point was voted Orange County's top Natural Wonder. It sits just a few meters away from you door. We are across the street from the beautiful Dana Strand Beach. Beautiful sunsets behind Catalina Island await just steps from your vacation rental.

Great location - Great Stay!

Spent a week in Dana Point, using it as a "home base" to travel throughout SoCal and found it to be a great location with lots to see and do within a 1 hour drive. Dana Point was beautiful with clean, quiet beaches and a great town center - everything you could want within a short drive or walk. Castaways Cottage was as advertised and provided everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Ralph was great to deal with and overall provided a very comfortable experience from start to finish. Thanks for everything and helping to make this a special time we will always remember. Hope to return again next year!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Castaways Cottage.
Regards, Ralph &Jeanette

I stayed for three weeks with my wife and my 2 year old grandson.
The location and surroundings made me fully satisfied enjoying my life there.
My grandson misses his morning walk to the ocean front vista park.
Not only location, but Ralph- landlord's preparation for my stay helped me do whatever I wanted to.
If I am asked to recommend a place to stay in Dana Point, my answer is CASTAWAYS COTTAGE!
Thanks Ralph.
Thanks Ralph.

Another Wonderful Stay

This is our second year of spending the months of November and December at Castaways Cottage. We love the location and our walks to the beach. Our favorite is to watch the beautiful sunset on the Pacific! This year we even saw a pod of dolphins playing in the surf. The condo is always clean, welcoming and has all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Shopping is close by and the Dana Point Harbor is just down the road. Once again, a wonderful stay at Castaways Cottage!
Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words regarding our Castaways Cottage.

We had a terrific time at your condo.The view from the Strand beach was gorgeous. It was so close for great morning walks. We cooked quite a bit on the new grill! We loved the close proximity to all of the beaches. Aliso beach in Laguna was our favorite. We will definitely be back!
