About Janice

I live in Dana Point and we purchased this house primarily for use by family members who visit from New York.

Janice purchased this house in 2011

Why Janice chose Dana Point

This property is in the prestigious 24 hour guard gated community of Niguel Shores. The club house facilities have recently been renovated and are top notch.

What makes this house unique

It is a convenient location from which to do many things; Disneyland is only 30 miles away. San Diego is 60 miles south and LA is 60 miles north.

You could spend a long time looking, and still not find a rental even half as good

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the good fortune and privilege to stay in this beautiful home for three months, whilst I was working on a project in the area. Given that we were arriving with not much more than two suitcases and a 3 month old baby, finding a well equipped fully furnished house was a must. After quite some searching (I physically viewed around 10 properties in southern Orange County) I had the great luck of stumbling upon this lovely two bedroom house, situated in this peaceful and picturesque gated community.

Given that I looked at so many properties in the area, I think I'm well qualified to mention the following amazing attributes of this property, which set it apart from the rest:

- First and foremost, the owners are truly wonderful, welcoming and warm-hearted people who were helpful and accommodating without being the intrusive in the slightest.

- Then there's the view - it's been mentioned by others, but it really deserves mentioning again, the view out to Catalina Island is truly spectacular, my wife and I often caught ourselves simply staring out at the sea - which was indeed a lovely momentary relief from the challenges of coming to grips with a 3 month old child!

- The house truly is fully equipped, you will want for nothing here, from the kitchen, to the bed linens and towels, everything is there and easily accessible. The lounge and dining area are superbly well appointed, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms are newly rennovated and a pleasure to be in.

- The community is really a lovely place to be - well mantained, supremely safe, and with absolutely wonderful outdoor areas including a huge pool complex, a childrens' playground and a private cliff-top park directly on top of Strand Beach where every Friday evening the very friendly locals gather over a glass of wine to enjoy the sunset.

- Another point which is easy to overlook, but for us a huge plus - air-conditioning - you simply won't need it! Because the property is located high up, the cooling Pacific winds are totally unobstructed, meaning that even in the hottest days the house (including the bedrooms) stayed pleasantly cool with a lovely light breeze - even in 33c/91f degree heat.

I am absolutely convinced that there is no better value short-term / vacation rental available in Orange County, and most certainly not in such a beautiful place so close to such an amazing beach.

California at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We live in Europe, we love to travel, for beach vacations we have stayed often at vacational rentals in Greece, France, Spain, Italy, etc. but no other place has been as nice, as spacious and as comfortable as this beautiful home.

The description and the Photos we first saw in the internet made us feel confident enough to choose this property over many others we have seen. When we got there we were simply amazed how beautiful, clean and well equipped it was and it got just better by the minute. Its view from the kitchen, the master bedroom and the garden simply breath taking and its proximity to the beach with exclusive parking was a very nice surprise.

The gated community gives the nice touch of exclusivity. The beach and the picknick area to enjoy the sunset simply the best of the best.

The information provided to us was accurate and transparent from the first moment on. We enjoyed not only the amenities and comfortness of the house but also the professional, friendly and uncomplicated rental procedures.

We highly recommend this place to anyone who likes to enjoy California at its best!

Great view and location, beautiful accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this property while wrapping up a nearby renovation, and felt at home the moment we arrived! The ocean view is great from the kitchen, master bedroom and backyard. A highlight of our day was to enjoy the sunset from the kitchen window. This beautifully furnished home has a large living/family room perfect for the entire family to snuggle up to watch a movie. Both bedrooms are spacious with large closets and extra space for storage. The bathrooms are updated with great showers. Our kids (5) and (11) shared the bedroom with two twin beds and a trundle, and had plenty of extra room to play.

The two car garage with a washer and dryer was perfect for our family's needs. A bonus was the quiet, safe cul-de-sac location… ideal for the kids' bikes, roller blades and scooters.

We highly recommend this home for people of all ages. It's perfect for families on vacation wanting the comforts of home with easy access to the ocean, community pool, tennis and parks. Janice was terrific to work with, and we can't say enough nice things about our experience.

Perfect Summer!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this property for the entire month of July. We were in transition from Arizona back to California and Janice was so great to work with!!

Honestly, the pictures cannot do this setting justice. To wake up every morning to that VIEW outside the kitchen window...I found myself making excuses to do the dishes. The gas grill was so nice - I grilled most lunches (fresh fish!) and dinners and we ate them outside on the back porch where we could enjoy that view. The kitchen is very updated so if you want to cook you would be all set.

The community is very well kept and my kids LOVED the pool and play area. We did not take advantage of the tennis courts, but if that is your thing you will not be disappointed - the ocean breeze is to die for.

I almost did not rent this property because on the map it looked too far from the beach. I am so glad I did not let that sway me. My kids are too young to make the walk and we bring too much STUFF to the beach for the day, so we drove the car to the private parking lot (always a space, even on the 4th of July) and it was perfect. My friends who have stayed here rent a golf cart for the month and enjoy that for lugging things back and forth. I actually think I prefer being "up" on the hill so I can enjoy the view rather than closer to the beach without one.

The 4th of July was a blast - I loved not having to travel on this hectic day...the community has tons of events and the kids entered a sand castle contest.

In the end, it was hard for me to leave...I even asked Janice if she rents the place in winter because it was starting to feel like HOME.

I highly recommend this rental and if I did not end up moving back and finding a condo 10 minutes away I would be reserving next July right now!

p.s. if you rent make sure you get down to Wind and Sea and order the fish and chips and The Swack and order the asian salad as a side dish. YUM!
