Capistrano Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, Sleeps 6

This fully upgraded 2Bed 2Bath getaway is located walking distance from the beach (Capistrano Beach) in the beautiful coastal city of Dana Point in Orange County. Taking a 5 to 10 minute stroll down to the long stretch of beaches, you will pass a famous view point of Gazebo Park where you can view the entire coastline and if timing is right, the beautiful sunset over Catalina Island. Check out our pictures of the walking path and direction to the beach. It's a fun and safe walk for kids, elderly people and bikers as well. The beach (Capistrano Beach) along the scenic stretch of coast in south Dana Point, offers volleyball, basketball, cycling, and other beach activities.

This lovely house is few minutes drive away from dana point harbor and other nearby public beaches, shops and restaurants. Due to our convenient location which is half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, North Orange County / LA attractions (Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott's Berry Farm) and San Diego attractions (Sea World, San Diego Zoo, La Jolla) are both only an hour drive away. I-5 Freeway which can then take you to either direction is only 5 minute drive away.

Once you get home after a full day outdoor, you can enjoy the custom Jacuzzi tub, the elegant gas fireplace or just enjoy your large private backyard & deck and its fire pit & gas BBQ grill. Our guests also enjoy watching HBO and other HD channels as well as streaming Netflix movies using our Wifi-connected blu-ray player.

This gorgeous vacation house is totally remodeled to include a spacious and fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and top of the line appliances and cooking utensils that you can use to prepare your own meal if you wish. Other elegant interior upgrades include hardwood floor, corner rock fireplace and new master bath with custom Spa Tub. For your convenience, house comes with towels, washer/dryer, laundry detergents, hand and dish soaps, beach chairs, beach umbrella, ice cooler and beach towels for your days at the beach.

This house has total of 3 beds: King bed(sleeps 2), Queen bed(sleeps 2), Sofa bed (sleep 2). So this house can comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests.

About Ross

I am Ross, the owner/manager of this vacation home, an engineering professional, with MBA degree in management and project leadership position in a hi-tech company in southern California-Orange County.

My wife and I welcome you to our beautiful beach vacation houses. We are committed to offering lowest possible rates, while meeting the needs of all our guests and making their stay a special one. We also want you to enjoy all the culture Dana Point and Laguna area has to offer while experiencing them in the most comfortable way possible!

Ross purchased this house in 2009

Why Ross chose Orange County

Property is located half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, making one day trips to both Los Angeles (Universal Studios Hollywood,etc.) and San Diego (Sea World, San Diego Zoo,etc.) possible.

The property is located in a beautiful neighborhood with a very short walk to the beach! House is also close to grocery stores, restaurants, highways, shopping and most orange county tourist attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very cute two bedroom house. Our family enjoyed the stay. Quiet neighborhood and very pretty walk to beach. Dana Point is our family favorite vacation spot and this condo will be our regular rental.

Walk to Beach! Enjoy Spa Tub & Private Backyard w/ Fire Pit & BBQ
average rating of 4.7 based on 23 reviews

It was a lovely unit, updated, had all the amentities we needed for out stay.

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect little place for our family. Can walk to Capistrano beach, nice place to stop and get a great view. It was in a quiet neighborhood; Not far from the grocery store and restaurants. We didn't use the fire pit or spa tub but would be nice in cooler weather. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

Decent, not excellent

  • 4 of 5

3.5-ish stars

Overall, a nice place in a quiet neighborhood with quick and easy access to the beach.

Kudos: great BBQ outside. Nice firepit for small outside evening fire. Nice location, quick freeway access, grocery stores nearby, easy walk to beach. Nice updated full kitchen.

Complaints: bed in master bedroom had well worn groves with a big hump in the middle (though still comfortable).

Cleaning prior to arrival was subpar with crumbs and dirt on top of the couch (and well worn couches that look like they're >15 years old) and a fairly dirty oven.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this house with two other girls and my dog and it was the perfect set up for us. The kitchen is newly remodeled and beautiful. All hardwoods throughout, nice smart TV and a large kitchen table. The back yard is completely fenced in so it is perfect for dogs. It is a great location - very short drive to Dana Point restaurants and shopping. Highly recommended!

Remodeled Condo

  • 4 of 5

The owner took care in choosing most of the things in this condo. He responded quickly and brought more towels and a blender when we asked him. The king bed was comfortable (we didn't try the queen) yet there were some strange choices on his part: He choose portable heating/air conditioning units for two of the rooms and the second bedroom has an inexpensive $30 (guessing at the cost but probably pretty close) unit that is suppose to heat and cool. The portable units have no drains so the guests are responsible for picking up the units and draining them otherwise they don't work. They shut off for us within 15 minutes a couple of times but will also last a few hours before shutting off to be drained. If anyone thinks you don't need heating and cooling in Orange County, well I can tell you I lived most of my life there and you do. Since my husband and I own a HVAC company we know that these portable units cost more to run so the investment in a real central or mini-split system would make the most sense for comfort, reliability and ROI. Also no one wants to empty these things out it is not right to have the guests responsible for this. He also has signs saying he will charge his guests if something happens to the plumbing. Gee we don't know the history of the plumbing so thankfully nothing went wrong while we were there. Also instead of towel racks and towel rings, he has racks thrown over doors so you can't fully shut the doors and the towels fall on the floor. And he believes that guests should only get one set of towels per person which I felt was a little odd but he said it was standard. I don't think so. The living room furniture was a little shabby but not a deal breaker. And the closet was in the master bath and it had no door so that was a little odd.

All and all the condo was nice and if he installed a real hvac system and some real towel racks it would improve the quality quite a bit.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time during our stay and the unit was amazing! It is close enough to the beach, we could hear the waves breaking while we were having coffee on the back deck in the morning. I hope this unit is available for our next trip to Dana Point.
