Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided we should all get away for a break. We decided on Dana point because we had been there before and really liked it but this time we needed to rent something bigger because there would be more of us. There was myself, my husband our sons aged 25,23,22,17 and our 20 year old son who had downs Syndrome, and my sister and her husband came over from England to go with us. The Villa was PERFECT. There was so much room we never got in each others way. The large barbeque was wonderful, the pool and hot tub were amazing and completely enclosed and private. The gardens were lovely with all kinds of beautiful birds to greet us each morning. The house was well equipped. The pool table provided some fun evenings entertainment. Although I haven't met Gina and David our phone calls and e mails enabled me to see what kind and caring people they are. What else can I say but to thank them for the most wonderful vacation we have ever had.

Almost too good to be true

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to California to attend a family reunion, and were looking for a nice home to stay in rather than hotels. We knew we wanted a place near the beach with lots of room for our kids and grandbabies. We did a lot of research and narrowed the list down to the top ten, then everyone voted on their favorite. The Mediterranean Villa won hands down.

We were actually a little worried, since the place seemed "too good to be true" and we were afraid that the terrific pictures were all creative photos using deceptive angles like you sometimes see at resorts. Were those huge rooms actually optical illusions from wide angle lenses? When we showed up and walked through the door, the only word anyone could squeak out was "Wow." The property far exceeded our wildest expectations in every way. Everyone had their own room for privacy, with plenty of space for gathering together, both inside and outside. And when we could pry ourselves away from the pool, we were 5 minutes from some of the best beaches in Southern California, along with Dana Point Harbor for whale watching, boating, or deep sea fishing expeditions.

The owners were very easy to work with, and were always available for any questions we had. When we had a a minor maintenance issue, David was there right away to take care of it and provide restaurant recommendations to boot. The house was well maintained and obviously cared for.

If we come back to California in the future, we will definitely stay here again, and I will be recommending this to anyone who is looking for someplace to stay.

Overall, I would rate this property 6 stars out of 5.

The gift of the villa is one that David and I feel its a place of retreat and tranquility. Your thoughtfulness and presence exceeds our thanks. God bless you and your family.

Our stay at the Villa exceeded our expectations in every way. The house is beautiful and makes a wonderful get away. We were in California for our daughter's wedding. This house provided a quiet get away from the wedding activities and provided wonderful rest and relaxation. We spent time in the beautiful pool and hot tub while enjoying the ocean view. We took walks to the beach and the St Regis resort where many of the wedding guests stayed. There is a grocery store and good restaurants nearby! The only complaint that we had was that we had to go home!!! We highly recommend this property.

Our stay in Dana Point

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to this wonderful villa with my three daughters and one of my daughters friends plus grandma came too! Grandma called the villa a mansion! I call it awesome! We had a perfect stay at this villa. It had everything you could want with plenty of space to stretch your amrs out and say wow I love this place. I fell in love with the whole area from the pacific to mountains! We enjoyed the use of the spa and pool even though it was in the 60's because they were eated and the heat worked perfect. The best part of all were the owners Gina and David they were the best. They were interested in us enjoying our stay and it showed by their attention to our needs. It was the best experience I have had on renting a VRBO vacation spot and I have rented many. If we go back to California this is the place we will stay!

Great Place to Spend the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

Gina, we all absolutely loved our time at the house. We were there for a week and it's got everything you need. The ocean and hillside views by the pool and hot tub were terrific. We really liked the size of the house. There were 11 of us, including two babies, and we never felt like we were right on top of each other. More than enough space to relax. The kitchen is great too, we all took turns cooking dinner - ham, rib roast, chicken,... We hope to come back again. Thanks so much for your hospitality, it made for a very memorable holiday with the whole family.

Stunning Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for accommodating us Gina & David. The house stay was over and beyond our expectations. Everything was set up for us to enjoy our stay. The house is emmaculate and very well cared for and shows your handywork Since we needed to show our company employees a great evening your house was a great venue. The kitchen for entertaining was perfect for our chef and having a great selection of dishware was really nice since we have found that other rentals lacked sufficient supplies i will recommend you both and thanks for renting to us.
