El Condo Que Canta, or 'the Condo that Sings,' brings a touch of the Mexican Riviera to this stunning stretch of Southern California coastline. The gracious two-bedroom condo lies less than a 5-minute walk to Salt Creek beach, where you'll also find the Ritz-Carlton Monarch Beach, and is next to a beautiful heated pool and ocean-view Jacuzzi. Imagine world-class surfing, relaxing beach walks, and spectacular sunsets, which are all the way of life here.
This lovely beach home has been carefully decorated in rich tropical colors with warm accents. The master bedroom offers a luxurious king saddle bed set, flatscreen TV, its own private patio, and a warm aquatic theme. The second bedroom has both a heavenly queen and a daybed as well as stylish Tommy Bahamas-style teak and rattan furnishings. In the living room, entertain yourself with a state-of-the-art 46-inch flatscreen TV, high-definition (HD) cable, and high-speed wireless internet.
The open kitchen has granite counter tops and is fully equipped, and there a are two private patios -- one with a new Weber barbecue and outdoor patio seating. The custom-built indoor dining room table seats 6 and can be expanded. Eco-friendly amenities are provided in both granite top bathrooms. New windows and siding complete the recent renovation.
In addition to the central pool, the complex offers two Jacuzzis. There are more outdoor activities and water sports available nearby than most of us can imagine. Soft surfboards and cruiser bikes are available for guest use. Stunning beach walks and extensive hiking trails front the property, and it's an easy stroll down to the gorgeous Dana Point Harbor. After sunset, spend the evening strolling the harbor with its waterfront restaurants and boutique shops.
You can also take a 10-minute drive north to artsy Laguna Beach or south to funky and fun San Clemente. My guess though is you won't want to drive anywhere, since you'll have an unforgettable California play land right outside your door.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, and personal checks. There is a $500 refundable deposit and a $125 cleaning fee.

I'm an international travel writer and have written guide books about beach destinations around the world. But my heart always comes back to Dana Point, near where I grew up, because of its idyllic setting, gorgeous weather, friendly people, and calm way of life. Shane
It's been a lifelong dream of mine to buy a beach home here, and my dad and I renovated and furnished this condo with much love and care. I look forward to sharing the home with those with a penchant for adventure and a soft spot for the sea.
Surfboards and body boards available for guest use, direct access to the pool and Jacuzzi, extensive beach and hiking trails, and a boat harbor nearby.
