Located in Dana Point, CA (1/2 mile South of Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel & the St. Regis Monarch Beach). This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom ground level condo in the well maintained Niguel Beach Terrace at Strands Beach complex that comfortably sleeps 6 persons.

Located on a palm lined street on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway, you have the ocean to the right and our condominium complex on the left. At this point you are 'steps' away from the Strands Beach at Salt Creek Beach Park.

This area of Dana Point with it prominent coastal bluffs, is also known as The Headlands and is part of what is referred to as the 'Gold Coast' or 'California Riviera'. With Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south, this is the ideal location for your Southern CA visit.

Strands Beach, favored by locals, is actually the Southern portion of the Salt Creek Beach Park. It is a popular surfing beach that consistently rates an A+ in water quality. It is not uncommon to see dolphins or seals while visiting the beach. This is the same beach that guests from the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and The St. Regis at Monarch Beach use.

Our condo underwent an extensive remodel a few years back were everything was rebuilt and improved. This Strands Beach Condo has the look and feel of a quality California hotel while delivering a comfortable home-like atmosphere.

We've added a comfortable arm chair and some ottomans for additional seating.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a good selection of pots, pans and utensils. The dining area seats six, has dimmable lights and ceiling fan.

Great condo in beautiful Dana Point.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very, very nice. We've stayed in a lot of different units in Niguel Beach Terrace and this one is the best. The owner has redone the whole interior in very high quality materials. It's very nicely furnished and has been equipped with everything you could possibly need to fix and serve a meal. The owner was very anxious to do whatever was needed to make our stay the best.

Christmas in Dana Point

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the condo. The place was clean and well appointed and all communication with the owner was easy. The only cons: cellular service was almost nonexistent (but that seems to be all around Dana Point area), but WiFi was strong at the condo. Also, the cable tv package is lacking...we couldn’t watch many of the Bowl Games without ESPN! Probably not an issue any other time of the year, though. All in all, a fabulous stay; I would highly recommend this unit and this owner.

I loved it

  • 4 of 5

It is a great location and property for family vacation. The only issue is the very week/absence of cellular phone signal.

Owner's Response: Ahmad, we were pleased to have you stay at our condo. We installed a cellular booster, but it may have been not working properly while you were at the condo. We are working on fix this week. Unfortunately, most of the complex has spotty cell service as well. I hope this doesn't deter any future stay. Regards, Patrick

Dana Point

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! Clean place, and very accommodating for our family of 5. We made quite a few of our own meals in the fully stocked kitchen. Ralph's grocery store is right down the street.

Comfy beds, and fans kept the place cool.

The beach was gorgeous, surfers out daily.

We went to San Diego zoo and universal studios each within an hours drive. Also Hollywood blvd, you can pack a lot into your stay using Dana point as a comfty convenient home base.

We would highly recommend this place and dealing with Patrick and his quick responses to all our questions was great.

Winter Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from VRBO many times and this condo ranks with the best. It was very clean and beautifully appointed, even nicer than the pictures indicate. My husband and I stayed for a month. We found Dana Point a winter paradise. We biked the Salt Creek Trail and walked the beach everyday. We also enjoyed the pool and the hot tub. We loved that the condo is within walking distance of the beach, the Harbor and many restaurants. The Schwack Beach Grill was our favorite casual dining restaurant. Thank you Patrick, for responding so quickly and professionally to all our questions and concerns.

~ BEAUTIFUL ~

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and nicely decorated! Very close to the beach! Scenery was beautiful and the beach was the perfect place to watch our first California sunset! Plenty of parking and the neighbors were friendly. Bed was soooo comfortable.

Dana Point is a perfect, quiet, mid-way location between LA and San Diego. Highly recommended!
