Double glass doors from the living room open onto a 250 sq ft. foot deck overlooking the ocean. The deck is fully covered with a retractable awning for sun protection when needed.

Casa Elevado is located on a cul-de-sac which has been designated as a ‘view-fare’ by the City of Dana Point. By far, the best view of any home in the area. The house also features a mini outside BBQ deck and dining area with a full ocean view. The home has a modern granite kitchen and baths. This is a great house for entertaining those close friends or family you may be visiting.

Enjoy World Class shopping at South Coast Plaza or Newport Fashion Island, both just 20 minutes away.

We LOVE Dogs. Many of our clients bring their dogs with them to our beautiful location - They love it. Kid and Pet friendly, you will be within walking distance to Doheny Beach, Dana Point Harbor and numerous parks where pets are welcome. There is a secluded pet park with an ocean view less than 100 feet from the home. Nearby are fabulous Salt Creek and Trestles beaches, home to many world championship surfing contests. Whatever your appetite or mood, you will find the perfect restaurants within minutes: fresh fish, steaks, coffee shops or family dining.

About Gina

We have lived and vacationed in Dana Point for 23 years.

We are also pet lovers and we welcome your family pets.

Gina purchased this house in 1994

Why Gina chose Dana Point

We have lived and vacationed in Dana Point for 23 years. Dana Point was still fairly small and quaint when we first came here. It is still relatively small with about 35,000 residents. Even though Dana Point has become a world-wide destination for vacationers, it still has a small town feel and friendliness. Visitors are truly welcome here. Quite a number of celebrities come to Dana Point for quiet, undisturbed vacations. That's why we bought a vacation home here.

What makes this house unique

We love the wondrous, ever changing ocean view. Once a month the full moon rises and lights up the water at Doheny beach. We sit on the deck in awe every time - it is truly spectacular. We also like the close proximity to such a wide variety beautiful parks, hills and beaches to enjoy. We can get to San Diego or Los Angeles for dining or events in just 1 hour. San Clemente, Laguna Beach and San Juan Capistrano all have local theatre groups for a local night out. Our favorite thing is to spend a quiet day at Salt Creek beach. It's just beautiful. Probably what we enjoy most is sharing our vacation home with others. Everybody loves it - it is so relaxing and just has good energy. It is a great house for welcoming both old and newly found friends. Any stress we might have from a sometimes hectic schedule just seems to melt away once we are at our 'retreat'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Annie & Family,

we were so excited to have you all come together to Relax & have Fun in the Dana Point Vacation Home. All the times we talked on the phone I felt like I knew you and I am sorry we didn't get to meet I wanted to see your Beautiful daughter. Tell Alex I savored every bit of the wonderful wine he made. We do hope you come again and I will make sure we meet and have a glass of wine together.

Lovingly GINA & HAROLD

Mom's Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the most amazing Mother's Day weekend in this incredible home. I was blown away by the beautiful view from every window of the home. I spend most of the weekend on the upstairs deck just soaking in the drop dead gorgeous view and daydreaming that I could live here forever. Gina was wonderful and a joy to speak with. She answered all my questions and everything that I hoped for was taken care of. The house was just amazing. Very comfortable, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked from kitchen condiments, coffee, beach stuff, hair care products and even puppy toys for our dog. We even had 2 containers of Hagen Daz in the freezer...yumm!

My family and I took beautiful walks, everything was within walking distance, even a little dog park down the street. Gina provided us with a book of all the great things to do and see while we were there. There was a great selection of movies for us, fast internet and cable, comfy cozy beds, all the luxury of a fancy hotel but with the nice homey feel. We will absolutely be returning for another vacation here. But the next one will be a longer one, because this is a place you will never want to leave!

Breathtaking view need I say more!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay at this breathtaking ocean view home! Each morning we gathered on the deck to have coffee and listen to the ocean. Upon our arrival Gina greeted us and showed the property. We loved every minute of our stay and after our day at the beach, we couldn't wait to get home to make dinner and gather on the deck again. Gina provided cozy blankets that were useful in the morning and late evening with the ocean crisp air. We were two minutes from Dana Point harbor and started our morning with a great walk as well as our evenings getting a coffee, shopping, or ice cream! You can see Doheny Beach from the deck and we walked the beach in the evenings. We visited our Aunt in Laguna Beach a quick five minute drive and we were at Three Arch Bay private beach. We also visited Salt Creek Beach park which was just a couple minutes from the home. We were very satisfied with our stay, the ease of locating the property and the amentities! When Gina tells you she has the beach towels, chairs, and boogie boards for the beach...leave yours at home! We highly recommend the property to others. We are working on the details of our Next trip to your home. I appreciate Gina checking for a package I had delivered. Thanks again G & H for allowing us into your home!

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

I and my family (children and grandchildren) like to spend a week on the beach every summer. Typically we have camped on the state beaches, but this year we wanted to try a beach house experience. Am I ever glad we did! What a beautiful, spacious home with a spectacular view! It was set up with everything we could possibly need to make our vacation nearly perfect! From a fully-equipped kitchen to fun beach toys (and non-beach toys) for the kids! The owners are so personable and I appreciated their contacting me and keeping me updated on our stay. I also appreciated their book of information (for those of us not familiar with the area) they provide for those who stay in their home. It was a great experience all the way around and I would definitely go back!

It has only been a week since we left and I am already looking for a time to go back! Everything about Gina's place is just perfect. Perfect view, perfect layout and perfect location. It is a such a peaceful place its easy to forget you are just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Gina is so wonderful and easy to work with. We have two kiddos 4 & 8 and she was very helpful with suggestions on fun things for the four of us to do. Can't wait to go back!!

I have stayed here about six times over the last 5 years. I call Gina and Harold's house my Home Away from Home. It is where I go to unwind and reconnect with myself.It's much cheaper than hiring a shrink! I live just 40 minutes away from this home but it feels like another world - it feels like heaven on earth! To say the ocean view is beautiful minimizes just how gorgeous it really is. No matter how many times I stay, I never get over the beauty of their spectacular view. The house is equipped with everything I need and everything is so comfortable that sometimes I find myself staying in bed all day long or staying on the couch covered up with some of the comfiest blankets I have ever felt. The location of this home is perfect as well. You are minutes away from a great harbor to walk around in and surrounded by great parks, beaches and food. And now that they have opened a shopping outlet center near-by... I'm going to have to book more than once a year!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February in this wonderful Dana Point home. The views from the deck of Doheny Beach were beautiful. The area offers so much with easily accessible beaches, restaurants and even LA if you are inclined to drive the 5. We really enjoyed our month in this house and it was well stocked with kitchen gear, towels, etc. They were also kind enough to allow us to bring our small dog and our cat! The only negative was the beds which really need to be updated. The master has developed two 'holes' that you cannot help falling into - not great for your back! The other two bedrooms did not have good beds either - room 3 broken spring, room 2 strange overall - a foam square fitted atop gel tubes - no support. If you are young, and can stand the mattresses and a few quirky things like the broken door plate to the master bedroom and the doorknob to the garage that comes off in your hand, the views and location make up for the rest!
