About Chris and Sheryl Van Ruiten

We just love the ocean and enjoy walking on the beach! It was always a dream of ours to own a place at the beach. We were fortunate to purchase this gem and we would love to open our home to you. Our hope is that you enjoy God's many blessings as much as we do. We view our hospitality as a ministry, not an investment. It is with great joy that we welcome you to our home...your home away from home and a little bit of Heaven on earth!

Chris and Sheryl Van Ruiten purchased this condo in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chris & Sheryl,

We don't even know where to begin. Your home has been an oasis for us while our slab leak is being fixed and of course our bathroom remodel.

We have enjoyed every moment and look forward to coming back next year.

Loved your television set up so much that Gary hired your guy to put an entertainment center in our home. We also got rid of Cox cable & are getting Direct TV.

Your view is breathtaking and I must say we never were bored with the beautiful ocean & sunsets.

Thank you. Gary and Eileen M.

Awesome Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place to stay! The location was perfect. We were close to the beach and close to the highway for getting to work. The home was spotless clean and fully equipped with everything you can imagine.

We arrived late evening and there were enough supplies in the welcome basket to get us through the weekend without going to the grocery store!

The hosts were super nice to work with and made the whole process really easy. I highly recommend this beautiful home away from home!

We had a wonderful stay at a beautiful newly remodeled condo overlooking the Dana Point beach. The house was appointed beautifully and the owners did so many extra nice things to make our stay enjoyable. We hope to return to this place again.

2 minutes to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Description of condo does not do it justice. It was way better. Property was spotless. Beautifully and thoughtfully furnished. Comfortable beds with great linens. The apple tv was amazing, totally kept the kids happy when we weren't using all the great beach chairs and umbrella the owner had ready in the garage. The condo has an amazing view of Doheny beach. We were able to check the surf everyday before we went out. These owners are good people and you can really tell by the way they have set this condo up. The kitchen is awesome, very well finished and supplied. The bbq is gas from the wall so you never have to worry about running out of propane - too cool. The owner even left us passes for Doheny beach for several days...such thoughtful people.
