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!

Great location central and within walking distance, to Dana Point and harbor. Very nice house setup for two people with complete kitchen, BBQ, tastefully decorated and good views with privacy.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Overdue review for our stay at this fantastic casa!! WE loved our stay at this unique and charming home. Walking up the tiled staircase, we knew that we had made the right choice. The unique character in this home was amazing! The terraces were an added bonus! Comfortable bed, great bathroom, lovely kitchen and room to lounge. One more added bonus were the bikes and beach chairs! John was great to work with and responded quickly! Will definitely stay again!! Thanks!

We loved the VRBO in Dana Point. It was everything John said it was. We especially liked the remote control fireplace - A neat feature. It is wonderfully decorated on the inside tons of special touch of character. Awesome! It was close to everything biking (which did down to the Harbor from the House) hiking, sight seeing. Excellent view from the main balconies. It was a splendid time in every way. We look forward to coming to again real soon. Thank you.

Great place with historic intergity

  • 5 of 5

Great location for this fine old Spanish Revival with beautiful original tile and iron work. Great bed, balconies that let in cooling breezes during a warm week. Excellent kitchen with its own balcony. The front balcony, with binocs provided for viewing the distant ocean, had a wonderfully soothing fountain. The 20 steps to the front door might be a consideration for some, but overall, well worth the climb! John was very helpful and when I return to this area, I will definitely arrange to stay here again

Romantic Classical Spanish Revival built by Hollywood land Developer Sidney Woodruff in 1929. 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.
