Ross purchased this house in 2009

Why Ross chose Capistrano Beach

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.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We were attending a music festival at Doheny State Beach and the location was perfect especially for the price!! The bed so was so comfortable and the owner was very quick to respond anytime we had a question or an issue. We rent quite frequently using VRBO so I can tell you from experience that check in and check out at this property was so easy. If we return to the area we will definitely look up this property again. Thank you!!

Cozy beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this cozy beach house in Dana Point while in town for business. The house was convienient, the beds were comfortable, and the house was cozy with a great fireplace. The owner was also very easy to communicate with. We would come back for sure.

Quiet and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Great 2 bedroom home. Living area, dining room and kitchen nicely spacious and open. There were people in the front home but we never heard them. Very peaceful. Freeway and beach close. Bottle of wine left for us was a nice touch. Would definitely visit again.

Just okay, I would not use this property again.

  • 3 of 5

We had trouble keeping the house a reasonable warm temperature due to the portable ac/heat units. We ran them for two hours then they "needed service" in the middle of the night when the house was in the low 50s. My husband struggled to let the water out as described in the house instructions so we had to call for the manager to come the next morning. Round two, the next night, after two hours the master bedroom heater needed to be serviced again in order to work. The units are just too much maintenance for a rental property, I'm not sure why you would want to buy them. Draining the water at the bottom of the unit is awkward and you have to balance a one inch deep tray of water to dump it. Two units, after two hours.

The house could use a through cleaning, the baseboards, white cabinets, and base of the toilets were quite dirty. Because of the rain, things like not having pavers next to the driveway (mud) and dealing with the outdoor laundry (water that collected on top of the storage and soap containers fell on you) were annoying. Note to parents with small kids, the enclosed gas fireplace gets very hot to the touch. There was also a noticeable scent to the house possibly from animals. The neighborhood appears to be primarily renters so street parking can be difficult at times. Not easily accessible to beach, for those looking to walk.

The manager Ross was easily reached and helpful.

Owner's Response: We are puzzled by this unfair and incomplete review. Yes, we instantly contacted them when they notified us about the heater issue and we went there right away to fix it. When they said the error happened again we offered to bring replacement heaters, but they rejected it and said they are fine and will use extra blankets to keep warm! Not sure what else a homeowner like us could have possibly done when the tenant says they are fine and don't need what you are offering. and yes, streets and walkways may get wet and a bit muddy, and that's normal when the whole LA and OC area is experiencing its strongest rain and storm in years!
