Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Dana

We stayed here for 10 days and from the first sight we felt like home! Petite Retreat is a lovely cottage with everything we need and Dana Point has beautiful beaches which our little daughter just loves.

Thank you for everything

Vintage Shore Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Petite Retreat is a vintage shore house that takes visitors to a place of relaxation and great views. The garden yard and decking around the house provide a cozy and warm atomsphere and not to mention a great place to read or sunbath. The ocean view can be enjoyed from the deck and is especially nice in the evening when the sun is going down. The inside accomdations are reminiscent of beach houses along the northeast coast. The quaintness of the cottage still allows for modern conveniences, like the big screen T.V. our two teenagers enjoyed viewing. The cottage is in walking distance of the Dana Harbor were we enjoyed shopping and drinks. San Juan Capistrano is about a 5 minute drive and the town is still one of our favorites. Also, Anaheim and San Diego are not too far away and the cottage is a great home base to explore south orange county. We will never stay at a hotel again in Dana Point(Orange County), at Petite Retreat we felt like a guests in home at the shore.

Lovely beachy retreat

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Dana Point. The patio and view of the ocean are picture worthy! We enjoy grilling and eating on the patio. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans and other baking utensils. Dana has a beach umbrella, chairs and a small cooler for use at the beach. Everything you need is provided! Also, there are plenty of bath towels and a small washer/dryer is located in a shed off the back patio. Twinkling patio lights come on at dusk! We highly recommend the Petite Retreat!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Dana's place is great. It has everything you need. It's close enough to be convenient, but far enough away to be private. It has a great view and a very nice deck and it's super cozy.

We loved our stay. The house was cozy and comfortable. We had all we needed --even light wraps to enjoy deck at night. Lovely deck, great grill, oven and shower ! Easy access to fabulous restaurants, sights and beach! Dana was a pleasure to communicate with and very helpful. Will come back for sure.

Cute place

  • 4 of 5

Location was good for us because we were close to our son and his family. Plus out of all the busy beach traffic

The home is located within walking distance to downtown and many fine dining restaurants and coffeehouses. We are very close to the areas most popular beaches.

Please make sure you are comfortable with stairs. There is a bit of a climb but the view is worth it!
