About Todd

Like you, we don't like surprises when we travel. We wanted a place we could return to year after year and build family memories to last forever.

We commit to providing everything you need for a great family vacation at the beach. The Sand Dollar is a perfect location for all the attractions in southern California with perfect weather year around.

Todd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Todd chose Dana Point

We chose Dana Point since it had more parks, activities, restaurants and city amenities than most beach cities. Music concerts, whale festivals, outdoor movies are just a few fun activities in addition to the beach. Neighboring Laguna Beach and San Clemente expand the options with just a 15 minute drive.

What makes this condo unique

The Unique Benefits at this Condo: : Our condo is in Niguel Beach Terrace, directly across the street from Strands Park and the new Strands at Headland development. We share the same beach as the Ritz Carlton, at a fraction of the price. The new beach funicular is 'one of a kind' and a fun experience for young and old.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed at The Sand Dollar for the holiday weekend and really enjoyed walking to the beach and down to the harbor. It was nice to stay at a place that had all the amenities. Next time we will plan to stay longer.

Perfect for our Family!! We want to come back again!

  • 5 of 5
2 Adults and 5 children (ages 12 down to 1) ... perfect for our family! Comfortable beds, nice kitchen area. Quite condo complex area, nice walk to the beach, the pictures shown are just like the unit is. Unit located on lower level, close to the parking lot, short walk through parking lot to the community condo pool was great. Walk to the beach was great! And I used the unit supplied boogie boards, which worked really well, and the beach chairs and the beach umbrella (also from the unit). We try to come down to Southern California twice a year and this has become our # 1 location unit! Best value by far in a popular location in this area. Maybe I shouldn't be so positive ... because then others will take my desired week! All good... book it and you will have a great time!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at the Sand Dollar at the end of June 2014. I was a bit apprehensive about using VRBO or HomeAway, since we have always stayed in hotels or resorts. It turned out that I had nothing to be nervous about. The Sand Dollar was even better than the pictures and description online and Todd, the owner, was very easy to work with and provided great suggestions of things the do in the area. The condo is conveniently located within walking distance of Strand Beach, which is breathtaking. We spent most of the week at the beach, with the exception of one day at Disneyland. The condo was well equipped and even had beach chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, a surfboard, a skim board and a cooler that we brought to the beach. The complex also has a nice pool. If you have not visited Dana Point, you should. I feel like it's a hidden gem among the OC beach towns. The harbor is so picturesque. We can't wait to return to Dana Point and the Sand Dollar!

Family Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5
Our family's Christmas vacation was relaxing, memorable and rewarding in large part because of the excellent location, amenities and condition of this condo unit. It was an easy drive to our many destinations and a wonderful walk or run to the beaches, Dana Point, and the Marina. The condo was tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Thank you for making our stay feel like we were at home !

Wonderful property ,clean and well stocked.

  • 5 of 5
This was a perfect place to stay,close to the ocean and amenities. We had everything we needed for cooking meals and plenty of room for five people. The heated pool was enjoyed by our teenage grandsons, since it was too cold to swim in the ocean. We arrived in time for the whale festival and the many activities. It was also close to shopping and family living in Mission Viejo. We had a great time and would like to return again when we can fit it into our schedules.

Just okay....

  • 3 of 5
We stayed in this condo in 2010 and loved it. We decided to stay again this time for an extended period (about 7 weeks). Things have changed since 2010. The condo is still nice but needs some "freshening up". There were 2 wash clothes and 2 dish towels in the unit. I ended up buying some more. The sheets really need to be replaced as well as the bedspread in the master bedroom. The fan in the master bedroom could not be used because of the hum. The living room furniture is not comfortable (especially for an extended stay). You could hear every move of the neighbors upstairs...they have a toddler. There was construction going on in the complex..lucky not on our unit..but the staging area for the construction crew was directly in front of our condo. This area is beautiful and close to everything including the beach. The owners were responsive to my questions (there wasn't any cleaning supplies or tools and they had some delivered). When you are staying for that length of time it is nice to have a dust mop to do quick clean ups. Also for tenants that like to cook most of their meals like we do the owners should get better knives and bakeware. A couple of the baking dishes that were there was in pretty bad shape. I ended up borrowing some from a friend that lived close by. A 3 star rating is all I can give the condo this time around.

Owner's Response: We appreciate all our return guests and strive to keep them coming back. After your feedback, we replaced towels, sheets, master bedspread with a new comforter and duvet cover. In the kitchen we replaced the cookware and added new towels. We also added two new chairs in the living area for more comfortable seating.

I am also pleased to say the property improvements have been completed so the construction material has been moved out.

Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to having you return for many years to come.
