Go golfing or Take in a spa treatment at the Ritz Carlton or St. Regis hotels, both within half a mile away. What a way to relax!

This is also a convenient starting point for many of Southern California's tourist attractions and activities.

Just to the south is Dana Point Harbor with sailing, fishing, whale watching and restaurants and shops. Learn to surf or sail here. Also, home to the Pilgrim, a historic tall ship, and the Ocean Institute and adjacent tide pools for an educational experience in ocean life. Further south are the cities of San Clemente, with an excellent pier, La Jolla, home of the renowned La Jolla Playhouse, and San Diego with its famous Sea World, Wild Animal Park and Zoo too.

For the history buff, there is Mission San Juan Capistrano, the premier mission founded by Father Junipero Serra. Also in San Juan is a convenient train station that travels the coastline to San Diego south or inland to downtown LA with Chinatown and Olvera street a few blocks away. A really fun day trip!

To the east, about 45 minutes away is Disneyland , or as they say--the Happiest Place on Earth! And Knott's Berry Farm, Angel Stadium and the Honda Center. Something for everyone!

So,' Why hotel when you can HomeAway?'

About Ann

We bought a beach condo as a getaway home about 14 years ago and have loved it. We walk everywhere we need to go and spend most of our time outside, enjoying the natural beauty all around. Now, we have a bigger condo in this great location and want to share the fantastic area of Dana Point with others.

Ann purchased this condo in 2006

Why Ann chose Dana Point

This home is so close to the ocean, the harbor, the nature trails--walking everywhere.

A short drive south are the beach towns of San Clemente, Carslbad, Del Mar, La Jolla and even San Diego. Close by going north is Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Balboa Island.

And the condo shares the same beaches with the Ritz Carlton and St. Regis Resort Hotels...

What makes this condo unique

The great outdoors is right outside! Ocean, beach, harbor, surf, sail, hike, golf or drive and is all here.

OR relax at pool and two spas or book a massage at famous resort hotels.

Or just sit at at home and watch one of 3 HDMI TV's or ready beside the cozy living room fireplace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We sure enjoyed our relaxing holiday in Dana Point and will definitely consider coming back!

Please add any of the following comments to your website:

Overall rating: Excellent

Owner is prompt with information, friendly and pleasant to deal with.

Very clean, comfortable, well equipped accommodations that comfortably fit our family of six.

Quiet balcony off the master bedroom for enjoying morning coffee overlooking neighbourhood and ocean (without disturbing the sleeping teenagers).

Our teenaged kids enjoyed the pool and the nightly hot tubs.

Scenic beach and nice walkways both above the beach and down along the beach.

An interesting walk in nearby Dana Point Harbour among the many boats and waterways (5 min. drive from condo).

Local restaurants we enjoyed: Harpoon Henry's -excellent seafood, beautiful location on the harbour and one of the only restaurants we found open after 8:00pm.

Stuffed Pizza (in the same plaza as the Ralph's)-delicious homemade pizza to eat in or take out.

Condo location is close to the I-5 for daytrips into Disneyland -45 mins North on the I-5 and 60 mins South to Mission Bay/San Diego/Seaworld.

Thank you again for keeping your condo in such nice condition and for being such a pleasure to book with.

Wonderful, wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week in this beautiful place. The home was more than described in VRBO. Everything was perfect - incredible ocean views, great bedrooms, terrific bathrooms. Even the sofa bed mattress was incredibly comfortable! The place came with everything - beach toys, towels, beach chairs, everything you need. In the kitchen, we even enjoyed a Keurig with all sorts of coffee and tea cups. The kitchen had everything that allowed for me to easily cook a family meal for 15 people with no problem. The grill at the unit worked great. The location of the unit is ideal. It has the best view of the ocean, and is close to not only the beach but also the pool and jacuzzi. We were there for a family reunion and our family of 5 (me, my husband, and kids 16, 15, and 12) loved the place and location. Even our extended family with much younger children, as well as retired family members thought we had the best unit in the place. Will definitely be returning here.

We just returned from a 2 week stay at this unit (Endless Summer). It was FANTASTIC!!! This was our 3rd time staying in this same complex, but our first time in this unit. This was by far our favorite stay. The location of the unit, is perfect! First row, directly across the street from Strands Beach. Our 16 and 21 year old sons were able to quickly run across to check the waves for surfing every morning, and my husband and I were able to choose our varied routes for our 3-5 mile walk each morning too! The unit itself is very nicely equipped with really everything you need for your stay, as well as some nice "extras" like paper towels, laundry detergent, soap, etc. Lots of towels (both beach and regular) too, which is great. It's very spacious, and perfect for a family wanting to spend time together, yet have some space to themselves too. 3 decks to have happy hour, dry wetsuits, or watch the sunset. We love Dana Point, for the weather, the surroundings, and the all around "vibe" of the area. Lastly, Ann was great to work with, and answered all of our questions immediately. Thank you so much Ann, can't wait to return!

Great condo for a big family

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great for a big family. My husband and I came with our three children and one set of grandparents. The pull out couch really is very comfortable! It was spacious and light and clean. The view from the master balcony is amazing. The kitchen is spacious. We don't have cable at home, so it's always a treat to have really good cable channels. This condo has excellent cable channels. Ann Marie was so easy to work with and was very helpful. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Two considerations: there is no A/C and we happened to be there during the hottest time in almost 20 years (yes, it was April!) and the second is the walk to the beach. There are a lot of steps down (it takes about 15 minutes to walk to the beach with kids) and the public elevator was broken. Still, it was a great vacation and we would do it again.

Summer 2013

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so very welcoming and in perfect location for our family holiday. Lovely owner who was always at hand to deal with any queries right from our intial enquiry through to our return to the UK. She also was thoughtful enough to give us plenty of info on the local area. Ideal for our 17 year old to walk to beach for his daily surf, great for our 15 year old to chill in the pool and meet new friends, fantastic for us to take in the surrounding beauty on walks and lazy days on that gorgeous beach. We were lucky enough to see blue whales and we saw dolphins swim by every day. And of course to our daughters' delight we were close enough for daytrips to Disney and Universal! We really were spoilt for choice with restaurants both locally and in Laguna. Every meal was excellent. Was good to eat in too when tired.Definetely was a holiday with something for everyone, and we were so lucky to be staying in such comfortable accommodation with everything we needed, and with such a beautiful view from the front balcony. Hope to be back there again one day, missing it!

Ocean Views - Best Location

  • 4 of 5

We just wrapped up a week stay at this beautiful condo and absolutely loved it. There was more than enough space for our family (we had our 3 kids, ages 14, 10 & 3 with us). Over the years we’ve stayed at many units in the complex and this unit by far was our favorite location. There are ocean views from the master, the kids bedroom and the front porch area. Also, I loved the overall location. It took about 15 minutes to get to downtown Laguna (for the Sawdust festival), 15 minutes to be in South San Clemente (great surfing), and 15 minutes to see our extended families in Aliso Viejo, Ladera Ranch & Mission Viejo. However, there is no need to go anywhere because there is a world class beach right across the street. The Strand is one of my favorite beaches in all of Southern California! Thanks Ann for everything Ann we hope to be back soon!
