About Bill

Dana Point is the Jewel of Southern California, just the right amount of luxury and low key beach community. South on Pacific Coast Highway from Newport and Laguna Beach.

Why Bill chose Lantern Village

Ocean Views and centrally located to vacation attractions north and south. (i.e. Disneyland, Lego Land, Sea World). Boating in the Pacific is our thing and Dana Point Harbor is the best Family Marina in Southern California. In addition we can walk to the Ferry and take the 1 hour ride to Catalina Island..... a must day trip when you come to So Cal.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill and Barbara,

We had a wonderful month at the Villa. Thank you for your hospitality. A special thanks to

Billy and Sarah for the boat ride. Great kids.

Great area to vacation. We travelled from San Diego south to Venice north. We love this coastline, I think we will be back!

The Villa was all you described and more.

Lovely Trip to Dana Point

This well-appointed condominium was an excellent base for us while visiting family and new grandson. Everything is close by--Dana Point, great restaurants, shops, and beautiful places to walk.

A Gem in the Lantern Village! Location, Location, Location.

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family getaway in the Dana Point area. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood, walking distance to casual food places and coffee shops, etc. The beach is certainly walkable too. Bill was very responsive and the place is exactly how it's advertised. The layout is great and was even festively decorated for us during the holiday season. The 3D TV/movies was a bonus; the kids loved those! We will certainly return and stay here again.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 women stayed in the Villa and adjoining Apartment for a week in July. The location was fabulous. The trolley stop was just a few blocks down the street on PCH in front of the park. The park area is where the Saturday morning market takes place, and it was a really nice market with all kinds of offerings. Also along the park are Hennessey's (a restaurant) and a Mexican Market where you can get a great taco, in addition to groceries and sundries. Several mornings we walked to Crank and Grind, a combo bike shop and coffee shop! Also at the bottom of the hill, just across PCH, is a 24-hour diner that had great food and huge portions. The Apartment's patio is fabulous - a great place to have a glass of wine or a meal. Both properties were well-stocked with everything you could need. We didn't cook, but there is a full-size stove/oven and a large refrigerator. Bill was absolutely wonderful to work with. Both before and during our stay, he responded promptly to any questions or inquiries. One evening the internet was down and he called to take care of it right away. There is wi-fi and a smart TV in each unit. The bathroom in the Apartment is tiny and not so easy to get in/out of when opening/closing the door. The 2 bathrooms in the Villa have been updated. Some updates and a coat of paint wouldn't hurt in either unit, but that didn't affect our enjoyment of our trip in the least. One word of caution: The walk down the hill is a breeze, but coming back up is challenging when you hit that 3rd block! I would recommend this place.

Fantastic Dana Point Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had the privilege to stay at Bill's place for the third summer in a row. Bill is such a great guy to work with and he makes sure that you will have a comfortable stay. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals for your family or if that's not your thing you are within walking distance of so many restaurants to choose from! That's what we love the most about Bill's place is the location, we literally could walk everywhere; if we want to go to Laguna we just walk down the street and hop on the free trolley. The bed in the master bedroom is soooo comfortable and the shower is incredible! We have three boys and they all stayed in the second bedroom and had plenty of room. As long as Bill is still renting we plan on coming back year after year....assuming he will have us back.
