Wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

Jason's condo was beautiful. Very clean and well decorated. Close to everything we wanted to do. The area couldn't have been more beautiful. The few times I needed to contact Jason he responded right away. The neighborhood was incredibly quiet. The beds were comfortable, parking was easy, the pool was lovely. All in all we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend Jason's condo for a quiet beach getaway.

Great location and a very nice complex.

  • 4 of 5

We lived in the area about eight years ago so we are very familiar with the amenities surrounding the location. The condo itself was very nicely taken care of. Location was perfect and very close to our favorite beaches. We had a lovely stay and will continue to do the same .

Awesome Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week-long family vacation in sunny, southern California. First, Jason was very responsive, replying to our booking and questions within a few hours. We are a family of six, with children aged 24, 21, 17, and 14. The condo layout was great for us. The two queen beds in the second bedroom worked well for our children. The condo was clean and well furnished. The beds were comfortable. The closets were large. And it was very nice having a washer and dryer. Per our request, Jason actually acquired additional beach towels and beach chairs for our stay. Thanks Jason. There was also a cooler and umbrella to take to the beach.

The condo is located in a gated community which gave us additional confidence in our safety and the security of our vehicles. There was ample parking including one covered space. There are two grocery stores and a Catholic Church within a couple miles of the condo. The Dana Point location was awesome. It is an hour and 15 minutes from LAX, and an hour from San Diego. We visited a different beach, each with its own unique character, every day. We rode jet skis at Dana Point harbor. We kayaked among sea lions in La Jolla. We swam in the glitter at Coronado Beach. We toured Hollywood and Beverly Hills. And we dined and shopped in Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach. We used the pool and hot tub a couple of times and found them clean and never crowded.

The nearest beach is a bit of a hike, as others have commented. It took us about 25 minutes to walk there toting a couple chairs and umbrella and cooler and towels. We quickly learned it was much easier to drive to the various beaches in the area. We found ample parking for just $1 an hour. You also cannot see the beach from the condo complex as the pictures might suggest. But you are just a few minutes drive from great scenery, great sand, and great surf.

We would go back in a heartbeat.

Well-kept, well-equipped and well-furnished condo. The place is very quiet and has easy car access to the beautiful Salt Creek beach. We even walked there one day. The owner was responsive and the place was clean. We had a great stay.

A nice stay

  • 3 of 5

The property was in a good location in Dana Point. It really wasn't steps from the beach. You would need to drive to the beach. But there is plenty of parking avail and it's $1/hour. The closest beach is a little confusing. You have to park and then walk down quite a big hill to get to the beach. There is a shuttle you can take that is $1 per person per ride (pay to go down and pay to go up). The booklet in the apartment lists the nearest beaches and has maps and directions, etc. But when I booked I didn't really realize that there was no way we could walk with 3 little kids to the beach and then down the hill and then back. That said, we drove and Salt Creek Beach was lovely. We tried Aliso Beach one day and it was beautiful but pretty rocky so not good for bodysurfing, etc.

The apartment is on the second floor. There are 2 entrances to the complex (which I didn't realize) so when reading the directions you need to know which entrance they are talking about. There was ample parking and even a specified covered parking place, which was nice. The apartment seemed really dark! I was constantly looking for a light to turn on! But since we weren't there during the day much, it wasn't a huge deal. The 2 Queen beds in the second bedroom was nice and there is a big closet. The master has a King and a huge closet. It's a bit short on towels. There were only 4 bath towels, but we didn't bother calling to ask, we just made do. Even though it said there was A/C it was a little warm so I'm not sure what was up with that. But each room had fans we could use so we were fine.

There are 5 nice beach towels, 4 or 5 beach chairs, a small rolling cooler and some sand toys. That was really nice to have! The pool and hot tub were fun and not crowded. And it was nice to have a washer and dryer. The kitchen knives weren't very sharp so you may want to bring a good paring knife with you if you're doing much cooking. There were paper plates to use and that was really handy! Overall we had a great stay.

A Great Place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Jason's property. We are familiar with the neighbourhood, and Jason's was perfect. It was clean, comfortable and had everything needed for our stay. An added bonus was Netflix for our teenagers! it's in a great location, near Salt Creek beach, restaurants and shops. Thanks Jason!
