Lantern Village Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Here at the Bitchin' Beach House and Bitchin' Digs we believe that you deserve the best...the best service and the best vacation rental, we are here help.

The Bitchin' Beach house is a very colorful, vibrant beach bungalow! It took a lot of work and heart to create this amazing environment. If you are looking for a unique experience, where your vacation home is not just a bed for the night, you have come to the right place! This house is truly a vacation in itself. Decorated and owned by a professional Interior Designer/Decorator, this Caribbean-Inspired Getaway is unlike any other home. Filled with one-of-a-kind stained glass (including beautifully carved stained glass bedroom doors, dual masters - one we call the 'Captain's Room' featuring a queen bed, hanging chair hammock and a clawfoot bathtub perched on a pedestal and the other 'The Bamboo Room' has furniture taken straight from a villa in Mexico including a rocking chair and double bed handmade from bamboo.

Our 800 sq ft wraparound cobblestone porch overlooks our beautiful peaceful street and expands our bungalow into an outdoor environment, with its dining table for 12 made from 200 yr old barn wood. Close our outdoor curtains for even more privacy as you lounge on the hanging bed and take in the scent of the fresh flowers along the perimeter of the veranda. Ahhh...

The Bitchin' Beach House is the first of many real estate and hospitality endeavors created, owned and managed by Bitchin' Digs.

Why Alyssa & Tessa Hendrie chose Dana Point

It has almost 'seven miles of coastal bluffs and rolling hills along the Pacific Ocean with its charming beaches and wild surfs. Most noteworthy of these bluffs is a unique promontory known as the “Headlands”, which overlooks Dana Point Harbor, one of the most significant manmade alterations of the Orange County coastline.' (Quote taken from the City of Dana Point). For me personally, it was the fact that it has everything... it is within a mile of the greatest beaches in California, walking distance to the store and cute shops, it's a ten minute drive to Newport, Laguna and San Clemente. There are plenty of things to do no matter what your taste or mood. Great happy-hours, sunsets and relaxing days on the beach are endless. Who wouldn't want the quintessential Southern California Beach living experience?

What makes this cottage unique

No other rental will feel as unique as this home. There is not one cookie-cutter aspect of this bungalow. It is truly individual.

Killer Brocation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I attended a wine charity event in Dana Point and SJC and I chose the Bitchin' Beach House as our base. Such a good call. This place is truly unique and was very cool to spend a couple nights in. It's rootsy style and feel, coupled with its perfect location made our excursion memorable! Highly recommended!

Truly Magical

  • 5 of 5

The Bitchin' Beach House was everything we anticipated and more! The house was perfectly clean, places we have stayed at in the past were not super clean... not the case here, spotless! So homey and decorated so stylishly we felt right at home. The outside space was so fun to hang out when my daughter brought friends to visit. The beds were beyond comfortable. The Beach House is close to everything but in a nice quiet residential neighborhood. I can not imagine coming to California to visit my daughter and having to stay somewhere else. We took many photos on our mini vacation I noticed a lot of them were of our Beach House ;)

Stylish surroundings and a great location. The large table on the patio was such a nice place to hang out and catch up with old friends.

Great Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! I could not stop oo-ing and ah-ing at the awesome decor! The home was bright and airy during the day; cozy and romantic at night! It was All California! My only regret was the kitchen - we were planning a lot of meals at home and there just weren't many utensils and/or cooking gadgets. Of course, one would ask - its vacation! why cook anyway?!?!? The outdoor living space was my favorite part of the house!!! The owner should be so proud of her home!

Location of the house is perfect - Mussel Cove only minutes away - BEST BEACH!

Downtown Dana Point & Marina/Beach within walking distance!

Fun & Funky

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Tessa & Alyssa for allowing Rich and myself with our two Old English sheepdogs, Watson & Sherlock to stay at your "Bitchin Beach Bungalow". We had a relaxing ten days and will not forget our experience. You have truly designed a unique and fun little place that has all the comforts of home with a little added glitz thrown in.. i.e. twinkling lights strung from everywhere, artsy pieces of decor everywhere you look and even a comfy bed and dining place on the front patio :) Oh and my husband's favorite part, the wide screen t.v. We look forward to staying with you again the next time our estate is rented out!
