We stayed at Pacific Retreat from July 21-28 with our family of 6. We had an amazing experience. We traveled by plane so we couldn't bring much except our clothing for the week. Pacific Retreat had everything we needed. We could use lawnchairs,toys,cooler,umbrella,boogie boards and anything we needed for the beach. The owners were very helpful and flexible. They baked fresh cookies upon arrival to the clean condo with a great view of the mountains from the kitchen window. The parking was right outside the door and the pool steps away. We walked to the beach a few times a day and loved the atmosphere of the condo. The location could not be beaten with houses on the beach listed for 23 million! We would stay at this location again next time we come to California.

Perfect location for exploring Southern California

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.

Pacific Retreat was the perfect place for our vacation. Our plan was to visit Disneyland, Hollywoood, Seaworld and Universal Studios which we did with our 13 year old son and it was always a great pleasure to return "home" at the end of a busy day. The condo has everything one could wish for and was spotlessly clean on our arrival. We all appreciated the homemade cookies and fresh flowers that were waitng for us. Pacific Retreat has a lovely atmosphere and is very tastefully furnished. Our son was very happy to have his own space and was thrilled to have his own bathroom. It was a pleasure to prepare breakfast in the mornings and we also made use of the barbeque on two occasions.
Having a washer and dryer was a godsend as on the excursion free days we went to the beach and it was great to be able to load the washer up and get everything dried within a short space of time.
The complex is very well kept with lots of flowers and shrubbery. We found our neighbours to be very friendly and helpful and had some nice chats in the hot tub.
We spent our free time on Strand beach which is just over the road from the complex and it is one of the nicest beaches we have been to. We had great fun playing in the waves and our son learned how to use a Boogie Board. It was always very difficult to drag him out of the water at the end of the day. Everyone on the beach was very friendly and Patrick had no problems making friends there.
The town of Dana Point is very laid back and relaxed with many great restaurants and of course an abundance of fast food places for when you are too tired to cook but still want to eat at home. We don't have too many fast food places in Austria, mainly MacDonalds and Burger King, so Patrick was thrilled to be able to try Taco Belle and Pizza Hut, places he has only seen on TV.
Sarah is a very warm person.We felt quite at ease as soon as we met her and obviously this is reflected in how "at home" we felt at Pacific Retreat.
Staying at Pacific Retreat has made us rethink our future vacations. Previously we have spent them at All Inclusive resorts, but with a thirteen year old, spending two weeks in a hotel room was beginning to get a bit cramped.
I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Pacific Retreat to my family and friends. It was one of the best vacations that we have ever had!
Thank you Rick and Sarah and who knows, maybe we will see each other again next year.
Warmest regards from
Marie, Wolfgang & Patrick Scheid

Relaxation and Fun condo in Dana Point, CA!!

We were here for 6 nights and totally enjoyed our stay. From the layout, cleanliness, and amenities of the kitchen, living room and bathrooms to the outdoor community pool, sauna and horticulture, we loved it. We normally get ocean view condos on the bottom floor when we stay in NIGUEL BEACH TERRACE condos, but we equally loved the second floor with beautiful tree and hummingbird views. Loved the 20 second walk to the pool, and we used the pool moreso on this trip than others. We too received fresh baked cookies upon arrival along with fresh cut flowers - so welcoming. We give Sarah and Rick's condo and hospitality 5+ stars. Thank you for a memorable stay!
-Joanna and Sunny

Nice, clean condo. Very convenient location. We enjoyed Dana Point beaches and a quick drive to Laguna Beach. Great restaurants in both places. We also travelled up to Disneyland. Sarah was very helpful when we asked for recommendations for our vacation, she also worked hard to ensure we had a great stay. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was helpful and the beds were very comfortable. I would recommend this condo to my friends. You should definitely try Captain Dave's Dolphin Safari, recommended by Sarah, and a real highlight of our trip!
