Wonderful Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I had such a wonderful time during my 30 days in your beautiful beach condo. Everything was clean and very well organized. You were absolutely wonderful to work with and were always on top of everything. You checked in during my month stay to ensure everything was going well and I would definitely recommend your place to my friends and family. Thank you again for everything and I look forward to staying there again.

Condo stay

  • 5 of 5

I had been planning to write a review and kept forgetting. We stayed May 7-14 2014. We loved everything about the condo, location, and weather was beautiful. I took a chance and planned everything through the internet, and everything worked out as planned. Martica, the owner, was very friendly and easy to get a hold of if we had any questions. The pool area was very nice and my 3 & 5 yr old loved it! The only thing that wasn't clearly stated, was the beach was directly across the street. The beach was across the street, however; very long walk and staircase for small kids. Apparently, there is supposed to be an elevator, but was closed during our stay. The view from the Strand and the beach were beautiful though, so it didn't matter much. My kids enjoyed playing in the pool more than going to the beach anyway. Price was very affordable. I was dissapointed to see that the condo is being rented by the month vs the week now.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and Dana Point so much that we booked another vacation at this condo again. We vacationed for just over a month at this lovely condo and the entire family of four was so comfortable and loved the area. The condo was clean, beds were comfortable, and the unit was very spacious and light inside. All the fans worked wonderfully and the kitchen had anything you could possibly need. My family also enjoyed the beach across the street. I would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family. Thanks again and see you next year.

Beautiful Dana Point !

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with area and condo. Fantastic beaches,walkways,shopping all within walking distance. We've never stayed in a condo before always rented private homes but this location was perfect ! Very roomy well equipped and maintained. Privacy was not an issue with upper balconies on either side of Bedrooms that were very spacious and were accessible from just about any room. Owner provided very detailed instructions and was prompt in responding. Would recommend for all types of vacationers

Great porpery, awesome owners

  • 5 of 5

Great owner to work with. Condo is lovely. Well-stocked, clean and the larger kitchen makes it seem airy and larger. Top floor location is a plus for ocean breezes and noise level. Back location means less noise, but there is still an ocean view. Patio is great to sit on and enjoy the ocean breezes. Martica was responsive to all of our needs and the deposit was returned within one week. Would reccomend this condo for all. This is the best one we have stayed in to date at this complex. Thanks Martica.
