About Ross

I am Ross, the owner/manager of this vacation home, an engineering professional, with MBA degree in management and project leadership position in a hi-tech company in southern California-Orange County.

My wife and I welcome you to our beautiful beach vacation houses. We are committed to offering lowest possible rates, while meeting the needs of all our guests and making their stay a special one. We also want you to enjoy all the culture Dana Point and Laguna area has to offer while experiencing them in the most comfortable way possible!

Ross purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Ross chose Orange County

Property is located half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, making one day trips to both Los Angeles (Universal Studios Hollywood,etc.) and San Diego (Sea World, San Diego Zoo,etc.) possible.

The property is located in a beautiful neighborhood with a very short walk to the beach! House is also close to grocery stores, restaurants, highways, shopping and most orange county tourist attractions such as Laguna Beach, Disneyland, etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our party included 4 adults & 2 kids x 1 week of summer beach fun.

The rental unit was just as described/pictured: clean, comfy, nice couches that reclined, freshly painted interior and nice bedroom/living room/kitchen furniture & fixtures, easy to use flat screen, adequately stocked kitchen, washer/drier, and easy access coded entry so everyone could get in and out w/out a key! The additional access to the unit through the garage/pool room was fantastic. We came and went daily w/out having to drag our beach gear through the house and had a place to stow away our car top carrier. Overall this was a great, relatively inexpensive rental for our family.

The weather was much warmer in august than we had anticipated! Ross was very accommodating and provided a tower fan for the living room, which helped tremendously.

I would have given the rental 5 starts but the pool table was a bit disappointing for the adults b/c the bumpers were dead... but the tweeners had fun playing pool regardless.

As for the area:

Shopping was very convenient; Big 5, Costco, Ralph's, the harbor to name just a few places.

The location was safe, tucked in a quiet neighborhood with easy access to multiple freeways.

As for the beaches:

We found the San Clemente too crowded and the beaches w/in walking distance were too rocky; but Crystal Cove was just right!, we found ourselves traveling by PCH daily to Crystal Cove. It's not a bad drive and we love Laguna, which is along the drive... the food, the art, the shopping! :)

2nd time renting this house

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this house and we love it! The house is always nice and clean and the neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. They're very responsive to your questions. The home is really close to the beach, about 20-30 minutes away from Disneyland. Lots of restaurants and things to do nearby. We would definitely recommend this house.

The corners and baseboards were dirty. The range pilot light was not lit. That said, we were greeted with a bottle of merlot, the neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. It is on the cliff above the beach, about 1/2 mile away. The bedsecond were comfortable.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay if sightseeing. Minutes from San Clemente, San Juan Capistrano, Chapman University and other points in Orange county. Ross was very responsive - I got an e-mail back as soon as i sent one. Ross took care of our needs. Wifi was a little spotty at times but loved having a washer and dryer. The pool table was great. It was very clean when we got there and it was just like advertised.

Excellent Home In A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home in a middle of October. The home was great and the perfect size for the 5 of us that stayed there. It was nice to all have our own privacy of separate rooms and then be able to share a space together in the living room/kitchen. The home was very clean, it had everything we needed, and was in a nice quiet neighborhood. The location was not far from the store or downtown Dana Point and made it very convenient for getting to where we needed to go. It was a great location for a great price, especially in the area of Dana Point. We enjoyed our stay very much and would return for another stay at this home.
