Come see the best that Southern California has to offer; sun, sea, beach, fun and most important, location. Just steps away from beautiful Strands Beach, in the prestigious Dana Point/Monarch Beach area and a short one-hour drive to Los Angeles or San Diego, 30-40 minutes to Disneyland, allowing you the flexibility to decide what you want to do each day.

Conveniently located between the Ritz Carlton, St. Regis & Montage resorts, this five-star 1,100 sq ft condominium is designed with all of your travel needs in mind. On the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway but not next to the highway making this a tranquil place to stay. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying.

This is a non-smoking environment. We have one of the largest 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms in the complex with vaulted crown molding ceilings throughout. We are an upper unit with ocean breezes. The Kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a scrumptious sit down dinner before a night out on the town; yet simple enough to enjoy a quick meal on the large granite counter area before heading off to catch some waves.

Sit and read a book in privacy, watch TV on a large Plasma screen or enjoy a video in the comfort of the large sectional, before heading off to bed. The Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom includes a premium euro pillow top queen mattress, while the guest bedroom offers a choice of two twin beds and a premium memory queen bed; with quality linens to ensure a restful good night sleep. Large ceiling fans in each room for your comfort. We disinfect all TV remotes/phone and clean all linens after each guest. The closets are custom built and there is plenty of drawer space in each room, so don't worry about bringing too much clothes (unless of course, you would rather go shopping). Two separate bathrooms, with top of the line fixtures, and stacked washer/dryer are nicely tucked away and easy to use. Enjoy LCD/HD-TV/DVD in your master bedroom and LCD/DVD in the second room. Fast speed secure wireless internet through out. Clutter free room for all your belongings. We also have a port crib, high chair and light stroller upon request. Owners are located close by from Bandit’s Cove if you need any assistant.

Pool and 2 spas are heated all year. We supple beach towels/sand toys/ umbrella & chairs. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying. For beach access we are right across from the walk way directly to the steps, bathrooms and shower and have a funicular (an outdoor elevator) that takes you to the beach. There is covered parking, guest parking and street parking for your RV.

Welcome to The Ultimate in 5-Star Living in Dana Point by the Sea.

This was our second home for 3 years; we had moved up to the San Francisco from Dana Point, the family began getting so home sick for the Southern California climate that we began spending weekends, summertime and holiday’s staying in hotels and became expensive, which led us to our decision to purchase and remodel this unit for our enjoyment.

We have now moved back to the beach..

This is why this condo (we hope) should feel like a second home to you too!

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Thank you,

Mike & Michele Hardy

Lovely apartment, fab area!

As it was our Silver Wedding anniversary, we decided to celebrate with a trip somewhere special and here we landed on our feet! Bandit's Cove is very clean and fresh and we felt at home straightaway. Mike Hardy phoned us the evening we arrived to make sure we were happy and had all we needed. The apartment is as the photos, bright, modern and very tastefully furnished and comfortable. The fridge is to die for, with it's icemaker and chilled water facility which we used a lot. The cookies, water and fruit left for us were very welcome and there were enough bits and bobs in the cupboards for us to make a snack as we were pretty tired from the transatlantic journey.
We were amazed at how much there was to do in the area. A local man on the plane there advised us on places to go, the aerial tramway at Palm Springs was amazing with fantastic views, a great trip. And the whale/dolphin trips run from the harbour were so good we went twice! The local beach, Strands Beach was clean and beautiful, with nature trails leading up to the point.
Eating wise we'd recommend Mozambique (in Laguna Beach) for a special meal and breakfasts at Bonjour cafe won't leave you hungry! Turk's down on the harbour is a characterful bar where you can eat great food and chat with locals.
The apartment complex was quiet (this is December, though) and the pool and jacuzzi were available right up to 10pm if you wanted a last swim before retiring. The Pacific Coast Highway runs very close by, which is handy for easy access but you can't hear the traffic at Bandit's Cove as it's on the sea side.
We had a fabulous time, a very happy anniversary and are saving to come back again. We readily recommend Bandit's Cove for your Californian Dreamin'. :-)

Our family absolutely enjoyed our stay at Bandit's Cove! We were greeted with fresh fruit, cookies, and water upon our arrival. Our kids loved the mini oranges and cookies! The condo was clean well stocked with everything you could possibly need and more! The pool is just a minute walk and the beach is just a bit further. Bandit's Cove is the perfect location, Strands Beach, Disney is a 30 minute drive, grocery stores near by, as well as Star Bucks! Mike and Michele do a Fantastic job start to finish! Hope to be back again some time.

Great location across from beautiful Strand Beach and short drive to other Beach Cities. Well located for day trips to San Diego or LA. The hiking trails are great and for anyone who surfs, this is a great location.

The condo was very clean and had all the amenities.We appreciated the lovely touches like fresh fruit and cookies. I would definitely stay there again.

Stunning Condo with Excellent Location & Custom upgrades

Let me preface this review by saying that I take at least 1 VRBO related vacation every year. I'm personally trying to take two or three. My expectations regarding the caliber of places on this site is firmly grounded in experience.
Simply put, this property is one of the best. Not only is it well maintained, but there were upgrades everywhere. The unit itself is small (correctly advertised) but the owner has arranged/furnished it in such a way that it feels very spacious. This isn't a luxury unit, but you sure might think so...wood floors, granite counter tops, custome fixtures and lighting.

This is an upstairs, end unit that gets bathed in natural sunlight. There are windows and sliding doors located in most every direction. You have plenty of privacy, but you can easily invite nature into the unit and enjoy the fresh ocean breeze. Only improvement would be an ocean view from the unit (which does not exist). You will need to earn your view of the Pacific with a 30 second stroll to Strand Beach Park. The complex has a pool and a hot tub, perfect for a night swim and relaxing in the evening

Remarkable unit, Stunning location and involved owners. They were very gracious and communicative from the start. They are genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay and expend extra effort to ensure it. This property is a winner!
I grew up in this area and this was a trip to visit family and friends. Dana Point is the perfect location to explore SoCal. Close to disney & San Diego, positioned right on the Beach with easy interstate access

We had a fantastic time at Bandit's Cove! Our 6 week stay was packed full of adventure and it was wonderful to know we had a home away from home to come back to each evening. The condo itself is clean and modern and was ideal for a small family such as ours. Our daughter actually said (the day we left) "I don't want to go! It feels like home!" which we thought was adorable as well as a testament to our comfort and happiness. I'd thoroughly recommend Bandit's Cove to anyone visiting Dana Point or the surrounding area(s). Not only will you get a great place to stay, you also come away with amazing memories!

Commanding sweeping views to the sea, this par-70 championship course offers an unending variety of play.

Carved amongst the dramatic and lush walls of Aliso Canyon, the Aliso Creek Golf Course has been the exclusive golfing destination in the seaside village of Laguna Beach since 1950 and the most serene, natural setting for golf in Orange County - 9-Holes
