“Beautiful views-”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2016

This house is quite lovely. The best feature as mentioned by others is of course the amazing panoramic coastline view. It is spectacular. The outside deck is a great spot to entertain and relax. There are heat lamps above the dining table. The fire pit is also a great feature. The main level was open and decorated with amazing works of art and very comfortable nice furniture and decor. The only thing about the house that was not so great were the way the guest bedrooms were set up- they could use some updating. The master had a great view and outside sitting area but was connected to one of the bedrooms via a painted curtained glass door which made it feel less private and would not be so great if several sets of adults were sharing. Also, not that it was an issue for us but the bunk bed room can only accommodate young children as beds are short. The house is in a good location and about a 15-20 min walk to the harbor, beach and local coffee shop and restaurants. Lots of hills so not a casual stroll but very doable. We loved the Headlands trail along the coast about a mile or so a way and the 5 dollar happy hour at the Chart house. Owner very easy to work with and accommodating. I would rent this home again.

“Gorgeous ocean views!”

It was the perfect home for our family reunion, 7 adults and 4 young grandchildren. We all had plenty of space and the layout of the common areas is what we really liked. Very efficient flow of traffic esp. in the dining and the kitchen areas. Dan the owner was most accommodating to our requests. We love the area and look forward to return trips.

“Beyond my high expectations!”

This property is amazing with absolutely stunning views of the ocean from the main floor, deck, and master bedroom. The accommodations feel 5-star, and the owners have thought of everything that you might need (i.e. high chair, port-a-crib, baby gates, beach toys, boogie boards, etc.). I took my husband here on a surprise 40th birthday trip for the weekend with a group of friends and our children, and we could not have chosen a better destination. The owners are also extremely friendly, available, and helpful. I highly recommend this property and would love to return myself someday soon.

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! Thanks so much for lending your awesome home to us. Our family had such a wonderful time. Your house is beautiful, was our "home away from home" we love it here and the "Dana Point" weather was perfect. We found another place to love and hope to visit again.

Dan & Edris, Wow, what a spectacular week you afforded us with our good friends. We throughly enjoyed our time in Dana Point as well as the use of your home. The views of the coast and of the fireworks from the deck on the 4th of July were spectacular. Not only were we center stage for those in DP, we saw at least 3 other shows along the coast. We also enjoyed Baby Beach (perfect for the kids) as well as exploring the tide pools in Laguna Beach. Thank you again for your hospitality and willingness to be available to us when we had questions.

We had a family reunion here in early June and everyone had a wonderful time. The pictures reflect this house very well. The home is exactly as described, super clean, and modern with a simply breathtaking Ocean View. The furnishings and amenities are top-notch. Everything was new/ well maintained, with a great stereo system and unbelievable LCD TV. The kitchen has every amenity you could think of (pretty much a dream kitchen). There was also beach equipment available (chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards, etc) to take to the beach. The house is about 10 minutes away from the beach that is right outside the Ritz Carlton (and therefore, well maintained). There was also a really useful guide to the local area (beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, etc). Dan (the owner) was overall a pleasure to deal with, being extremely helpful in guiding us to the fun spots in the area, and always available if there were any problems. We asked about one of the smaller TV's not having a cable box (it was more of a DVD/Wii TV), and he immediately went out and got another cable box and installed it within the hour. Everyone in the family wants to come back again next year - the kids had a great time at the beach and running around the huge house. Needless to say, I would recommend this vacation home without reservation to friends and relatives.

We always have a wonderful time at your home. It is a great place to relax. LOVE the view!!! The walks on the beach are the best and the harbor is fabulous for shopping and dining. Close to everything. Our favorite resturant for dinner is the Harbor Grill. We enjoy walking to the harbor for breakfast on the patio. Thank you.

We are very excited to be part of your first summer rental. Our family arrived from So Carolina, Minnesota and Riverside CA. We gather every year in the summer to renew our family bond, relax and enjoy our beautiful surroundings. We knew the views of Dana Point would be loved by all - we were right! Everyone loved the house! The kids loved the "bunk house" room, we adored the steam shower, and the deck/views are unbelievable. We enjoyed Strand Beach and Salt Creek Beach, a round of golf at Aliso Creek, relaxing around the fire pit with smores. Sophie, age 6, lost a tooth on day 2 and Adam, 11, joined her and lost a tooth also. Thanks for everything! It was a joy to be in your home, thanks for having us! 7/30/10

It was a pleasure to spend time in your home. Everything that we needed was waiting for us. We had a large group of family and friends who were here for a beautiful weeding. Thank you for having this nice large space for all of us. We especially enjoyed the beautiful views. 9/10/10

Dan & Edris, Like others before us, we can't say thanks enough for sharing your wonderful home with our BIG family. I had such a difficult time trying to locate a home that would accommodate all of us for a surprise 50th Birthday gathering. The views, photos/art, decor and of course your hospitality made for a perfect getaway. If you ever get over to AZ, give us a call. We'd love to have you up to the "cabin in the woods" Scott, Cindy and family

I rent a house about 1 to 2 times a year. This year I was celebrating a big birthday with my friends and we decided to stay in Orange County, and so happy that we got the opportunity to rent this house. The house was much better than I could have asked for. Everything was clean, beautiful and modern. Everyone enjoyed the house and the beautiful scenic views from all of the large windows. We spent a lot of time in the house, cooking in the spacious kitchen and enjoying the ability to listen to music while BBQing. Also, make sure to check out all of the photography in the house,it's absolutely stunning and all taken by the owner. Dana Point as a whole is a great place to visit. Unlike other rentals, the owner was very accessible and even helped us in terms of what beaches to visit. We were unable to get the grill to work at first and Dan came over and helped us out. It was very nice that he went so out of his way to ensure that we had a great stay. Also, he was great to work with before our stay and after in terms of responsiveness to emails and communication. My next visit to Dana Point will definitely include a stay at this house. Thanks again for letting us stay. Tiffany 7/2011

Jack & his 5 sons, Thanks so much for sharing it with us. Five sons & our 85 year old father had many special times here-- laughter and laughter and more laughter, stories of our lives - many memories, discussions of our various philosophies- "pontificating", and your home provided the perfect venue. Thank you and God Bless!
