Just okay, I would not use this property again.

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!

Myself, 3 others and our two dogs stayed st this lovely home in Dana Point for the new year. Even though the weather was wet and rainy we enjoyed our stay very much. The house is in a great location and it was in great condition. We will absolutely stay here again if we are planning another trip to Dana Point.

The house was great and the yard was really good for our dogs. Everything worked well, the only thing I had a problem with was the master bed was too high, so my hubby had to help me get in! 😂 Short people problems!

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.
