Now has Central Air Conditioning!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We didn’t get a chance to leave comments about how great the property was last week. We really enjoyed the visit. My daughter and her husband loved it! They live in China in a small apartment, so getting the chance to stay in a charming house such as yours was a real treat. My wife and I were actually at the Ritz Carlton, so after my daily business we’d walk on over to the condo to relax with them for the evening before returning to the resort. If we ever need to again stay in the neighborhood, we now know who to call!

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in one of the last Spanish Revival homes in OC. Walking distance from restaurants, grocery store and marina. Easy access to other Beach Cities. Quiet neighborhood, ocean view. We're avid readers and I also enjoy knitting. We brought two booklights because the true-to-era decor suggested that lighting might not be what we're used to. That was a good call and an easy fix.

This was by far the most amazing rental I've ever had on either HomeAway, Airbnb or VRBO, and I have used all three sites all over the world. The area is great and you can actually walk to quite a few things in the neighborhood. I love Dana Point because it's super laid back and more residential, and a perfect base for exploring the many beautiful beaches in the area.

The house is absolutely gorgeous - beautiful Spanish revival themed décor everywhere, soaring high ceilings with exposed wooden beams, large comfy bed with a private wraparound balcony for a breezy afternoon nap, 4 balconies to enjoy SoCal weather on - WOW!!! Really cozy and spacious! I know lots of people were upset about the lack of AC, but when you are this close to the ocean, you just need to open all the windows and get the fans going, and it's really pleasant with the cooling sea air. I definitely want to rent this property again and BBQ on the balcony off the kitchen and enjoy those marble countertops!

The kitchen was large and beautiful with a balcony off the side, and the bathroom was also similarly well appointed with loads of towels, TP and soap. Everything was very clean as well and the owner was incredibly responsive and sent me proactive emails beforehand to make sure I was comfortable with the checkin process. We spent an entire weekend sitting out on the main balcony, which juts out over the intersection of two streets. This house is truly the Grande Dame of the neighborhood!

I read reviews with people complaining about the noise of cars/people but I didn't notice any noise at all! If people sleep that lightly, and go somewhere fun like Dana Point, maybe they should be prepared and bring ear plugs rather than blaming it on the property! I slept like a log in this property with no problems. If you are checking in late, make sure to have the flashlight on your phone ready because the stairs get very dark.

The fireplace was also not working when we were there so they probably should get that repaired before it gets chillier in the fall.

Rent this place, you will not regret it!!!!

Not what we expected

  • 3 of 5

We loved the history and beauty of this unit, but were disappointed at the same time. The balcony with the fountain and table and chairs was nice to sit and drink coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine in the evenings. It was rather warm weather during our stay and we were uncomfortable without any air conditioning. There was not much of a breeze, even with every screenless window open. If there had been some fans to move the air, we would have been more comfortable. This unit is in a residential neighborhood and you get a lot of traffic and people noise with the windows open. We were awakened several nights from loud motorcycles and vehicles as well as people talking loudly. The location was nice, however, for walking or biking to close by attractions in town. We enjoyed the beach chairs as well. After reading the owners expectations of his guests, we were surprised that there was not one coaster to be found to be used to set drinks on the furniture. The kitchen was small, but nice and pretty well equipped, except for the need for more large drinking glasses. We were disappointed that the huge TV in the bedroom was only good to play DVD's on, and did not get any TV stations. We could not get any of the CD players to work, after bringing several to listen to. The bed was very comfortable, but the sleeper sofa was not. It needs a new mattress. The lighting was very dim. Added lamps would help. We had plenty of towels and wash cloths, which was nice. While the beauty, history and location of this unit were a 5 star, and is what attracted us to it, the accommodations and comfort were far below our expectations.

Owner's Response: We were sorry to hear that your stay was anything less than exceptional. Although most of the time our climate does not necessitate A/C, from time to time we do get warmer than usual weather, and the unit can be warm. It does state on the listing that there is no air-conditioning due to the era of construction, and our goal to maintain the integrity of this historical home.There is one standing fan, but we will make a point to add another. We will also get some extra lamps in there. The CD changer has been fixed. Additional glasses have been purchased. We appreciate your feedback and again are very sorry that your stay did not meet expectations.

The Great Weekend Escape

We spent a great weekend in the condo. It is well kept and has a very unique ambiance. We really enjoyed the main patio and fireplace. I would definitely like to return for a future visit.

Romantic Classical Spanish Revival built by Hollywood land Developer Sidney Woodruff in 1929. Now has Central Air Conditioning... Coastline views from three of the four decks. This legendary landmark is within walking distance to the Dana Point Harbor and downtown Dana Point with many restaurants, water sport rentals, boutiques and coffeehouses. We are a less than 5 minutes by car to Strands and Salt Creek beaches! Perfect for honeymooners, and the couple who needs a quick getaway.
