About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Dana's Landing is located just steps from one of the most romantic beaches in the world. You will be encompassed by a beautiful sunset on the Pacific Ocean and by prestigious resorts, such as the Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis. Dana Point Harbor is right around the corner, this is a unique place full of wonderful restaurants and shopping set along side hundreds of boats. Dana Point is the perfect location to get out of the hussle and bussle of the city, yet it is a short 60 mile drive to Los Angeles or San Diego.

Laguna Beach is a short five mile drive along the historic Pacific Coast Highway to the north where the day and nightlife never end. During the day, the streets are filled with locals and visitors who are shopping and dining in Southern California's funnest beach town.

The restaurants and boutiques are behind every corner, not to mention the numerous art gallerys for which Laguna Beach is famous. Come visit us in the summer and see Laguna's famous Pageant of the Masters and the Sawdust Festival! If that is not enough, basketball courts, sunning, and people watching at Main Beach are perfect.

For the island enthusiast, the Catalina Island Express leaves daily from Dana Point Harbor where one can enjoy the day in Avalon. Snorkeling, water sports, or boating during the day or at night on special sunset cruises are just a few of the incredible attractions offered.

Come visit Dana Point soon and see why it is the best kept secret in Southern California!

The location is excellent. The compound is calm and safe. The house is old, Needs an update

  • 3 of 5

The cleaning service used by the owner needs changing ASAP. The house was extremely dusty when we arrived. The dishwasher wasn't unloaded so the wooden spoon had mold growing on it inside the dishwasher. The heating/ventilation system has no filter so the house was getting dusty all the time very quickly from the bathroom fans. There were a lot of unnecessary, broken or damaged pieces of furniture in the house. The storage room was overflowing with so many things you couldn't get in to use the things hidden inside. The house in general needs an update. Flooring, furniture, bathrooms, and it definitely needs an extensive spring cleaning to remove all unused and unnecessary items in the house. Like: old tv, caset player, yellow pages, old games...etc.

I recommend that all baby furniture/ strollers, basinette...etc to be stored at a different location and only be brought to the house at the renter's request at an extra charge for example. Because they take up so much space!

There is also I problem in the room with the bamboo furniture. There is a leak that is causing the paint to crack at the corner. And the furniture in that room is very bulky it's taking up too much space. And it's attracting ants. We kept finding ants on the bed while sleeping!

If the owner does a complete make over to the house. I would definitely rent again for the summer of 2018

Owner's Response: The kitchen was just remodeled and all the appliances (Kitchen Aid) and counter top are less than 1 year old. Traveler stayed at our condo for two months. During that time a ceiling fan stopped working and the bathroom door was locked accidentally with no one inside. Both occasions, we had a person onsite in hours to fix the issue. We find it odd and unfair to comment and provide 3 out of 5 stars on the cleaning service and ants on the bed for two months and not let the owner know and give an opportunity to immediately correct the issue. We would have gladly addressed the cleaning and had someone spray for ants. We pay for these services and they should be done. We pay a cleaning service to clean the condo and HOA fees to deal with ants. I don't know they are not doing their job unless we hear about it. We have addressed the items like baby stroller and other items which have accumulated over time from trying to assist families with young kids. Condo doesn't need any update the hall closest and master closest were reorganized and decluttered.

The location of the condo is great. Right across the road from the beach. The beach is really beautiful. Also location is close to town centre shops and restaurants. The condo is very nice, well equiped, light, spacious and in a good complex. Overall we had a great time.

Excellent beach location in Dana Point

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Dana's Landing for 2 months. What an amazing location, literally across the road from one of the most beautiful beaches in Orange County. Dana Point is a "must-do" vacation destination for anyone visiting Southern California. There is so much to see and do, including great mom-n-pop restaurants, whale-watching, long walks on the beach, and more... The town and the harbor are within walking distance from the condo.

The condo itself is pleasantly decorated with ample room for large families or groups of friends. It includes lots of closet space, cable-TV, WiFi internet and a nicely upgraded kitchen with everything you will need for a short or long stay. The BBQ is a nice feature as well for those lazy summer evenings.

We also want to give a hearty 5+ stars to Aaron for being so accommodating and ensuring our extended stay felt like home. Thank you and all the best for the future.

Excellent owner, great location, fantastic for a family & friends

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from staying at this property. Our group consisted of my husband & I, our two young kids and two other relatives. We had a WONDERFUL time at this property. We debated over an 'excellent' verses a 'good' rating - as there hasn't been recent updating done in the kitchen and bathrooms to be compared with other places we've rented. HOWEVER,they are all very functional and worked well for our situation. We feel it's a VERY fair price for what you receive. EVERYTHING about the house is very accomodating and comfortable. The house is VERY close to the beach, in a very safe neighborhood and just worked perfectly for us in every way. We were able to walk several times and reach shopping areas, take walks on the beach and paths and watch the beautiful sunset just steps from the condo. Everything about it was wonderful! The owners, Aaron & Gina,were a delight to work with. They were prompt about getting back to us, answering our questions and accomodating our needs. The extras they have there make it even better - with boogie boards and swim items, toiletries, laundry soap, etc. There were even enough boogie boards for my husband and two sons to play on. The beds are very comfortable and accomodating and are situated in a way that you could have a family of four easily in one room (which is what we did), and two people in each of the other rooms. It has a washer and dryer and all the conveniences of home. We will ABSOLUTELY consider staying in this property again when we come back to Dana Point and we would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to stay that will help make their trip even better. That's what this place did for us. Thanks go to Aaron & Gina for accomodating us so nicely.

Great Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (5 adults, 4 children) recently spent a wonderful week at this property. The word for this place is LOCATION! It was so easy to cross the street and take the gondola down to the beach with strollers, chairs, pack and plays, you name it. The kids loved the uncrowded beach and had fun in the pool at the complex too. We are hoping to make it an annual event for our family. Thanks for sharing your condo with us!

Great Condo and Location

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Dana's Landing Condo. The condo is nicely decorated and furnished. The complex is nice and quiet. The location is fantastic, just a few steps from Strands Beach where you can take a long stroll on the beach, on a board walk, or connect with the trail system through Salt Canyon. There is also a beautiful nature trail that can take you by foot to the wharf. If you like to spend lots of time outside strolling or in the surf itself you will love this location.
