About The Owner

I am the original owner of 'Coastal Accommodations', and after 8 years of residency in Southern California, returned home to the East Coast. I'm since married with 2 children. Much thought went into making our home away from home as comfortable as possible, and we hope you find it to be so too.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1983

Why The Owner chose Dana Point

I chose 'Coastal Accommodations' for its location, beautiful ocean view, short walk to Strand & Salt Creek beaches (and now the nature preserve); as well as its close proximity to Dana Point Harbor and other neighboring resort communities including Laguna Beach, San Juan Capistrano, and San Clemente.

What makes this condo unique

Coastal Accommodations offers convenient and comfortable first floor access, beautiful ocean view, an open, comfortable living space, two garden patios, close proximity to the heated pool and hot tub, and a beautiful sceinic 5-10 minute walk to the beach, golf, and resort hotels,

Amazing Oceanfront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The owner was wonderful to work with, and the property is extremely well maintained and furnished. With amazing views from the patio and living room - and even better views just a few steps away, overlooking Dana Strand beach - this was a wonderful place to get away from the polar vortex this winter. There is easy access to Strand and Monarch beaches, Dana Point town and harbor, golfing, Mision San Juan Capistrano and much more. The owner provides a handy guide book with information on local attractions, restaurants, churches, etc. Dining options range from high-end fine dining to our breakfast favorite - Coffee Importers on the harbor. This is a great getaway, and while the pictures are completely accurate - they pale in comparison to actually being there.

family fun

We totally enjoyed our time here. The location was perfect. The accommodations were great, comfy beds, fluffy towels, all the little extra amenities were there. The place was very clean. I would absolutely recommend it to a friend.

Dana Point comfort

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this condo for a week. The location was perfect for visiting my son and grandchildren, who live in Dana Point. It was also perfect for a short, lovely walk to Monarch Beach and easy driving distance to Laguna Beach and San Clemente. The condo was well-appointed, quiet, and very comfortable. The only difficulty was that neither of the available DVD players worked. The owner was pleasant to deal with, and I would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Oh My Goodness! This is the first I've learned of any DVD issues and will attend to it immediately. I will also look into more convenient venues for movie viewing. I'm delighted you enjoyed the condo and must say much thought has gone into making it a comfortable and pleasant experience. Consequently, it is an understatement to say it's nice to know it has not gone unnoticed. My sincere thanks.

Wonderful Dana Point Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 great weeks in this condo this winter. Anna has thought of everything to make a stay more comfortable. The first thing that greeted us as we walked in was an extensive notebook full of info on the condo and the surrounding area - including places you might want to visit and restaurants close by. The main living area is not huge but was more than adequate for our needs. The dining area has a table that seats 6. We even extended the table with another leaf and had a dinner party for 8 people. The kitchen is not large, but it has everything you need for preparing meals. The cabinets have been resurfaced and all of the appliances were very nice. The two bedrooms have wonderful beds and recently updated linens. Having a king-sized bed was a luxury and it was very comforable. The two bathrooms were very clean and had plenty of room for getting ready each morning. The full sized washer and dryer in the second bathroom were an added bonus. Having a condo on the front of the complex was great as you can see the ocean from the living room/dining room and the master bedroom. Anna's patios are both covered with beautiful plants and are a great place to relax and enjoy the wonderful CA weather. We enjoyed walking over to the park across the street most evenings to watch the sun set over Catalina Island. We also got our exercise by walking down to Strand Beach each morning and walking along the ocean. The sound proofing between condos was very good. We only heard adtivity upstairs the last couple of days we were there when a large group stayed in that condo. We're hoping to stay at Anna's again in the future. It's a great place!

Quiet, convenient, comfortable. A very nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is part of the Niguel Beach Terrace complex which is located across the street from the Strand Vista Park ( The complex is well maintained and has a pool with hot tub. Assigned parking spaces mean you always have a spot to park near the condo. A short walk across the street and you are viewing the Pacific Ocean in all its glory.

My girlfriend, son, and I just spent a week here and had a great time. If peace and quiet is on your agenda this place has it. If you want to walk the trails on the Headlands or stroll the beach you can do that too. There are also some good waves for surfing or boogie boarding down at the beach. And the city of Dana Point, PCH, and Interstate 5 are only a few minutes away. You are about halfway between LA and San Diego so you can easily cover all of the south coast during your stay.

To get to the beach you'll need to walk down some stairs (I counted 164 of them on one climb) or take the funicular (a funny word that means inclined tram railway). The main stairway is open 24 hours, but the funicular and some of the other stairways close at night. There are beach towels in the laundry closet.

There is a complete kitchen with dishes and cooking utensils, full linens, bath towels, etc. This condo is very well provided. I found that the couch slept as well as the master bed which is to say that they both slept very well. ;-) I recommend leaving a couple of the windows partially open to enjoy the cool ocean breeze day and night.

A nice thing here is that the front door uses a code instead of a key which means no key to lose and everyone can come and go as they please. There is no office on the property so be sure to get the code before you arrive. Look in the drawers in the living area for tourist info pamphlets, etc. and a membership fob for Ralph's to get the "local" prices. There is also a nice folder listing area restaraunts, things to do, etc.

This place is certainly on our list of places we would return to.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had the opportunity to spend a week in this condo and to really experience all that Orange County had to offer. The condo was very neat, well decorated and furnished. There were 5 of us and we slept comfortably with the extra linens provided. The fully furnished kitchen, washer and dryer, and two bathrooms, and wireless internet access were very convenient. The location was exceptional, with ocean views and easy beach access, we did not miss a sunset over the Pacific. Hot tub and pool access was a plus, and the complex itself was quiet and comfortable. A well-organized binder filled with restaurants and other attractions was provided and helped us plan our itinerary for the week. We went sportfishing, minutes away in Dana Warf, and spent a day in nearby Laguna Beach, exploring the boutiques and art galleries. We also visited the San Diego Zoo and explored Old Town, San Diego. We truly felt at home in the condo and did not want to leave! We will definitely be visiting southern California again, and we would love to return to this rental.
