About The Owner

We are long time residents of Dana Point. Both of us are local business owners and we enjoy sailing, walking, and camping.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Lantern Village

Having grown up in Dana Point enjoying all the activities associated with a beach life style, our desire was to offer a vacation rental in what we consider to be one of the nicest spots in California.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being able to walk to our sailboat in Dana Harbor, walk the local beaches & Headlands trails, and shop the farmers market at Town Center on Saturdays.

Truly a beautiful place! Quiet and peaceful. The view of the ocean is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! We spent 10 days here with our three children. Everything was perfect. Clean, fully stocked kitchen and enough space for the whole family! The balcony was our favourite! We loved our dinners outside, overlooking the beautiful ocean. We also loved that we were close to so many beaches and attractions! Definitely a perfect vacation! Thank you Dan and Edris for your wonderful hospitality!

Great home and owners were very cordial hosts.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and spacious home, well furnished and appointed. As good as advertised - everything we needed was there. Dining table accommodates 10 people plus stools around the counter; also nice outside dining for 6 with large grill. Only a short drive to nice beach. Owners were helpful with information and responsive to requests. The only caution that I would offer is for guests with mobility issues, stairs could be problematic as 4 bedrooms are on lover level from main living area..
