Perfect location for exploring Southern California
Submitted: March 3, 2013

The condo is perfect and the location can't be beat! We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Pacific Retreat.
From the very first inquiry the owners were easy to work with. The reservation and payment process were hassle-free and the owners even fixed a problem (that we caused) themselves instead of calling a professional and charging us for it. The owners always replied in a timely manner to any questions and refunded our full deposit the same day we checked-out.
The 2 bedrooms (with comfortable beds and linens) offered plenty of space for our family of 4 to feel at home for the week. Having 2 bathrooms and laundry in the condo made for a home-away-from home feeling. Everything you'll need for a relaxing vacation is included, from the fully appointed kitchen, to board games, plenty of towels and even beach chairs and toys. The heated pool is just steps away and was never busy during our stay.
An easy 5 minute walk offers unbeatable views of the Pacific - the perfect location to watch the sunset or look for whales and other marine life (bring your binoculars!) A 10 minute walk from there down (or ride the funicular on weekends and during the summer) to the ocean and you'll find yourself on a beautiful wide beach perfect for families, a romantic walk or jogging. A 10 minute drive and you are at Dana Point Harbor with shopping, restaurants and whale watch excursions (highly recommend Dave's Dolphin Safari). A great variety of restaurants are just a short distance away. The drive to Disneyland on a weekday morning was about 45 minutes from the condo to the parking ramp at Disneyland.
We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for an affordable alternative to a hotel for your next vacation. It offers the home-away-from-home atmosphere just a short walk from the Pacific Ocean.
