Could not stay here!

  • 1 of 5

Communication was good prior to booking. I was travelling with my 12 year old son and 3 year old daughter. We arrived late as travelling from LA. when we arrived the unit was very warm and there was an awful musty smell. When we looked around we realised the pictures must have been taken some time ago. Carpets in bedroom were stained and there was dirt in the corners. The bedroom blind was broken and brackets left on wall, they were also dirty. The bedroom lampshade had dust all over it. The sliderobe door was jammed and there was a crack in the other. The bed felt damp. The door to bathroom had a hole in it and something spilt on door. The bathroom mirror was very old and silver backing had come off around edges. The toilet seat was marked and broken underneath. The shower head was held together with black tape. The shower screen was caked in dirt and corroded. The bathtub was old and stained. There was dirt and cobwebs in corner of bathroom. The kitchen worktop had broken tiles, the blinds were covered in dirt and grease, the dishwasher smelt awful and was dirty inside and also had old powder caked around dispenser. The cooker was old and corroded on side. The fridge was also dirty and stained/marked. The saucepans and baking sheets were dirty and lids broken. There is no way you would use them to cook. The living room was spacious but furniture is really old and stained. The dining table is old and stained with white marks. There is no air conditioning but there are fans. These too are old, rusted and covered in dust. The tv had hardly any channels. I couldn't get the Internet to work when I arrived to contact Steven so had to drive to a friends house. My son was crying and said he would rather sleep in the car than at the apartment so we stayed at my friends small one bedroomed duplex where I had to stay as Steven is refused a refund. In fact he never even refunded the damage deposit or the cleaning fee. I paid in advance for a month so it is a substantial amount of money. Needless to say it was very stressful and ruined our holiday. I have took photographs and these have been placed on review sites. I have travelled to California for many years and have never had a probem with any accomodation. I listed everything that was wrong and the only thing he fixed was the toilet seat. Please feel free to contact me if you wish, I do not want anyone else to experience what i have. if you don't mind the above it is in a good location in Dana Point

Owner's Response: This review is from an angry traveler that did not stay here....she walked in and back out without a chance to address anything...and go another place that night. When I got the phone call in the morning she had already decided not to stay. I went out inspected the unit....and all was as agreeable...she tried to voice her complaint with the varies sites but they sided with me. Its been over 3 months and she final got a chance to voice her review. She paid for a month and the unit was left open for her stay...which she did not take advantage of. I won both complaints that was file and have since then kept this place rented with no complaints. She seem to had had another place in mind and was trying to get her requested money back. The vacation sites did not agree with her. This is an affordable ocean view unit near the beach.....and is not a 5 star has old furnishing that is well kept....clean....firm excellent condition bed...and now a brand new water heater just installed. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel near the beach at this pricing...please pass this one by. We get excellent rating from those who looking for a location...friendly complex....Thanks for your attention to all of our reviews.

Perfect place to enjoy Southern California and all it has to offer.

  • 4 of 5

Steven's Dana Point condo worked out very well for my wife and I. The central location allows access to everything Southern California has to offer. We are avid cyclist and we really enjoy riding the wonderful bike trails of Dana Point and San Clemente plus the streets in the area a extremely bike friendly. Steven's condo is spacious, warm and comfortable. The second floor location offers a great view which includes the ocean and this remarkable community. This location is perfect for almost everyone with the possible exception of a second floor requiring stairs and neighbors below with sensitive ears which means common sense courtesy while moving around the condo. The pictures are accurate but really don't show the size well. The open kitchen, living room, dinning room area is very open and specious and we loved the way Steven had his walls painted. The patio has a nice view of the pool as well. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed for two people; nothing fancy but adequate for almost anyone. The restroom area has very good lighting and everything works well. Last of all, Steven has priced his property at a very nice price for this location. We come to Dana Point annually and you can't beat this location for the money.

Affordable and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our one month stay because we love Dana Point. Everything was comfortable, but there was a dirth of cooking and serving utensils. The diswasher was useless, but Steve said it was due to be replaced. We would stay here again except my husband had a hard time climbing the steep steps. We cannot say enough good about Steve. He was so kind and helpful, and we thank him sincerely!!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent condo for anyone wanting a nice clean place to stay, in a quiet area. Everything was as Steven had stated, and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. Awesome beaches close by, as are shops etc. Weather was amazing all week, and we were very sorry to have to leave.

We would recommend it to all.

Very Clean very nice

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed our stay in Dana Point. Very nice beaches, we went to Disneyland while we stayed here, it's about a 30 min drive depending on the time of day. Ocean view from the property, although not a lot of windows to look out. Very clean and well kept second floor unit. Steven was very helpful and responsive. We will be back to stay here.

Great location and excellent management

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what I needed to relax in the sun during Christmas break. The location is

excellent - close to the beach, grocery stores, and an easy drive to major shopping malls and the art scene (South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa, Laguna Hills Mall, etc.)

I was impressed with the attentiveness and patience Steve, who took my phone call on New Year's Eve, treated us. We will definitely go back soon.

P.s.: if you don't travel a lot, you might want to read the description of the place beforehand so you have everything that you need with you,such as towels. There were no surprises in our experience, just great fun.
