Come see the best that Southern California has to offer; sun, sea, beach, fun and most important, location. Just steps away from beautiful Strands Beach, in the prestigious Dana Point/Monarch Beach area and a short one-hour drive to Los Angeles or San Diego, 30-40 minutes to Disneyland, allowing you the flexibility to decide what you want to do each day.

Conveniently located between the Ritz Carlton, St. Regis & Montage resorts, this five-star 1,100 sq ft condominium is designed with all of your travel needs in mind. On the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway but not next to the highway making this a tranquil place to stay. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying.

This is a non-smoking environment. We have one of the largest 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms in the complex with vaulted crown molding ceilings throughout. We are an upper unit with ocean breezes. The Kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a scrumptious sit down dinner before a night out on the town; yet simple enough to enjoy a quick meal on the large granite counter area before heading off to catch some waves.

Sit and read a book in privacy, watch TV on a large Plasma screen or enjoy a video in the comfort of the large sectional, before heading off to bed. The Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom includes a premium euro pillow top queen mattress, while the guest bedroom offers a choice of two twin beds and a premium memory queen bed; with quality linens to ensure a restful good night sleep. Large ceiling fans in each room for your comfort. We disinfect all TV remotes/phone and clean all linens after each guest. The closets are custom built and there is plenty of drawer space in each room, so don't worry about bringing too much clothes (unless of course, you would rather go shopping). Two separate bathrooms, with top of the line fixtures, and stacked washer/dryer are nicely tucked away and easy to use. Enjoy LCD/DVD TV in your master bedroom and LCD/DVD in the second room. Fast speed secure wireless internet through out. Clutter free room for all your belongings. We also have a port crib, high chair and light stroller upon request. Owners are located close by from Bandit’s Cove if you need any assistant.

Pool and 2 spas are heated all year. We supple beach towels/sand toys/ umbrella & chairs. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying. For beach access we are right across from the walk way directly to the steps, bathrooms and shower and have a funicular (an outdoor elevator) that takes you to the beach. There is covered parking, and plenty of guest parking.

About Bandit's Cove

Welcome to The Ultimate in 5-Star Living in Dana Point by the Sea.

This was our second home for 3 years; we had moved up to the San Francisco from Dana Point, the family began getting so home sick for the Southern California climate that we began spending weekends, summertime and holiday’s staying in hotels and became expensive, which led us to our decision to purchase and remodel this unit for our enjoyment.

We have now moved back to the beach..

This is why this condo (we hope) should feel like a second home to you too!

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Why Bandit's Cove chose Dana Point

Closest Unit to the water and High Quality living! DOES NOT back up to Pacific Coast Highway.

What makes this condo unique

Closest to the board walk and ocean. Quiet location-no street noise or pool noise ,just ocean breezes... The largest and updated 2 bedroom in the complex. Plenty of parking

Our Stay at Bandit's Cove

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very comfortable vacation while staying at Bandit's Cove. The ocean breezes and beautiful surroundings added to our experience. The condo was very clean and everything that our family needed was there on the premises. The furniture was comfortable and the decor was lovely. I would recommend this condo to others who are looking for a rental which exceeds your expectations.

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

The condo is in a fantastic location. Right across the street from the beach entrance. The beach was gorgeous and the waves were perfect for boogie boarding. We traveled with our two daughters and our chihuahua, and the condo had everything we could possibly need. Beach toys, boogie boards, fans, washer and dryer, beach towels, board games.....the list goes on and on. The beds were very comfortable and that was an added bonus. We would absolutely stay there again.

Beautiful condo with everything you need, close to the beach, pool and shopping

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Bandit's cove. We were greeted by a plate of cookies and fresh fruit - always appreciated! From the minute we walked into the apartment we felt right at home. The condo is beautifully decorated with a beach/sea theme in all rooms. We often find that rental properties have second hand or old furniture, well this wasn't the case. The master bedroom has huge closets and a very comfortable bed, and the kids loved the bunk beds in the kids bedroom. Mike, the property manager knew we had a baby so he prepared a pack and play, high chair and even a stroller for our baby girl!

This apartment is a gem because it has a parking spot a few feet away, and is a 2 minute walk from the pool and 5 minute walk from the beach. The beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in SoCal, with scenic views of the coast and million dollar properties, and clean, beautiful sand. We had such a great time that we are seriously thinking of coming back next year! thanks again

Bandit's Cove Trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my teenage daughter, my Yorkie, and I had a wonderful two week stay at Bandit's Cove. This was our second year staying in the condo for two weeks in June. The condo is beautifully decorated in an ocean theme. The beds are extremely comfortable and the bedrooms have ample room. The bathrooms are very tastefully done, especially the master shower which has a beautiful glass door. There is a TV in every room. The living room and dining room are large and, again, very comfortable. The condo has two decks for sitting and relaxing or reading. We walked to the ocean view of the Strand Beach probably 4 times per day. The walkway across the top of the beach is great for walking dogs. There is also a nice hike from the condo to the top of the bluff in which you can get a panoramic view of the Strand Beach and Dana Point Harbor. From the condo to the beach is approximately a five minute walk. You can choose the stairs to the beach or take the tram down. There probably isn't a better location nor more comfortable condo in all of Dana Point.

Golf: Too many to list here is just a couple of courses.

Few golf experiences can match the blend of stunning natural beauty and variety of challenges presented at Monarch Beach Golf Links. Here, along the dramatic bluffs of Southern California, master architect, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., has fashioned an intriguing layout in the Scottish links tradition on one of the select few oceanfront golf courses in California. Commanding sweeping views to the sea, this par-70 championship course offers an unending variety of play.

The moment you step onto the first tee at Aliso Creek Golf Course, you know you are in a world apart. Carved amongst the dramatic and lush walls of Aliso Canyon, the Aliso Creek Golf Course has been the exclusive golfing destination in the seaside village of Laguna Beach since 1950 and the most serene, natural setting for golf in Orange County - 9-Holes
