STRANDS BEACH DANA POINT (California Beach Retreat - Near Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, St. Regis at Monarch Beach and Laguna Beach

LOCATION

As you pull off of Pacific Coast Highway on to our palm lined street, you have the ocean to the right and our condominium complex, Niguel Beach Terrace, on the left. At this point you are 'steps' away from the Strands Beach at Salt Creek Beach Park.

This area of Dana Point with it prominent coastal bluffs, is also known as The Headlands and is part of what is referred to as the 'Gold Coast' or 'California Riviera'. With Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south, our California Beach Retreat is the ideal location for your Southern CA visit. You are central to all of Southern California! 60 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 60 miles from Sea World in San Diego.

Sixty-eight miles to Universal Studios Hollywood, 33 miles to Disneyland Resort, 25 miles to John Wayne Airport, 5 miles to Laguna Beach, 5 miles to Mission San Juan Capistrano, 80 miles to Tijuana Mexico!

BEACH

The Strands Beach is actually the Southern portion of the Salt Creek Beach Park. It is a highly regarded surfing beach that consistently rates an A+ in water quality. It is common to see dolphins and sea lions while visiting the beach. This is the same beach that guests from the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and The St. Regis at Monarch Beach use.

OUR BEACH HOME

First let me say this, 'We Love this Place!' Every time we visit we feel as though we are away on a vacation. That being said, we set out to transform this place into our our ultimate Beach Home. We were fortunate to have a professional designer in the family to assist us. When not on assignment in the Middle East or other parts of the world designing professional environments or private estates, we were able to get this pro to guide us through an extensive renovation of our Beach House. The end result is a warm, comfortable feel where 'coastal elements' abound.

LIVING ROOM

Entering this upper unit you will see floors with a beachwood look throughout, counter-tops with seafoam colored granite, glass tiles with the iridescence of abalone shells. Vaulted ceilings with recessed halogen lighting, plantation shutters give you the ability to control the abundant natural lighting, ceiling fans, an open floor plan integrates the kitchen with the living room.

A large deck adjacent to the kitchen and the master bedroom accommodates the gas barbeque. Adjacent to the living room area is another large deck with a small table and seating. Large sliding patio doors access each deck. Rounding out the living room is a queen size sleeper sofa, a 42' LCD TV, a Wii (yes, a Wii with 2 controllers)and a stereo system. Several DVD titles and some Wii games are provided.

GUEST BEDROOM

Next is the guest bedroom and bathroom. This large room also has vaulted ceilings with recessed lighting, a queen size bed with pillow top mattress, a designer ceiling fan, shutters and very good natural lighting. A large sliding patio door accesses the South facing deck. A TV with a DVD player and a clock radio are provided. The bathroom features a glass tile lined shower, frame-less glass shower door, limestone floors, granite counter-tops and a tumbled marble back splash.

MASTER BEDROOM

The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a king size canopy bed, designer fan, recessed lighting, a 32' LCV TV, clock radio, a large sliding patio door with access to the East facing deck. This large room has connected master bathroom with a glass tile lined shower, limestone flooring, granite counter-tops, tumbled marble back splash and a vanity area with seating. We believe this is the largest bathroom in the Niguel Beach Terrace complex.

KITCHEN

The kitchen was designed to integrate with the main living areas. From the kitchen you will be able to view both decks and be fully involved in any conversation taking place in the living room. All new appliances.

About Ernie or Robert

Young, fresh out of college, my cousin and I though it would be cool to have a place by the beach. So when the opportunity presented itself, we jumped at it. All the same, the financial committment was quite a strain back then. Fast forward 25+ years and the once sleepy, little beach town is now part of the 'Gold Coast', home to the 4 & 5 Star resorts, the Ritz Carlton and the St Regis at Monarch Beach. Additionally, our complex is adjacent to a new billion dollar residential development, The Strand at the Headlands. Who knew?

So in keeping up with the Jones' next door; we have taken our 25 yrs of savings and transformed our 1983 condo into a new, upscale, 5 star quality vacation home.

Be sure to read our guest comments!

Ernie or Robert purchased this condo in 1983

Why Ernie or Robert chose Dana Point

Again, we bouth this home long before we ever imagined it as a vacation home. As the trend toward vacations homes grew, we saw it as a natural for this location. We have one of the finest beaches, not to mention one of the cleanest, in Southern CA at our steps. Having experienced vacation rentals at the ski slopes and other places and we had a pretty good idea of what not to do. Our vacation home was remodeled from the ground up with the short term guest in mind. Extremely clean, redesigned floor plan to open and connect living space, larger bathroom, extremely comfortable beds, high quality throughout.

What makes this condo unique

Quiet, spacious, comfortable, very clean! No discarded/used furnishings from home.Everything was purchased new and is of quality at this vacation home. Going to the beach? We have the towels, cooler, umbrella, boogey boards, sand toys, chairs. Cooking? We have all of the spices, olive oil, quality cookware and utinsels. Large washer & dryer. Games, DVD's, Cable HDTV, internet, and a Nintendo Wii for your evening entertainment. Much More!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the wonderful week plus in your condo. Our family loved Dana Point & really enjoyed relaxing in your lovely home & on the beach.



Weather was fabulous - we could not have asked for anything better & we used the trails around the area extensively!



Looking forward to heading back home to our little dog but will look back at our time in Dana Point very fondly. Thanks again for everything!

Fine Apartment in a Great Spot

My wife and I spent a week while attending a meeting at the St. Regis. It was just what we wanted, comfortable, modern and efficient, great proximity to a wonderful beach. One question about the wireless internet was answered promptly and correctly.

My favorite place on earth!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 2nd visit to Dana Point and our first time staying in this condo (we stayed in the same complex but different condo). Condo was beautiful and we felt at home. Every morning I made waffles using the waffle maker. We ate breakfast and lunch in the condo and ventured out for dinner. We had every thing we needed to make our stay perfect. Used the boogie boards, umbrella, and beach chairs everyday. The washer and dryer are great. (large capacity) I was able to wash clothes and towels everyday. The extra touches in the condo, wood floors, upgraded bathroom and kitchen make you feel important. I highly recommended staying in this condo you will not be disappointed.

PERFECT !

  • 5 out of 5
My family spent a fabulous week in Southern California for our Spring Break. The condo was so great that I didn't want to leave it everyday to go sightseeing in LA. The bathrooms were especially nice. The condo had" everything " that you would need to enjoy your stay there. I would not hesitant to stay there again, as it was everything that we were looking for and more.

Perfect rental for family

  • 5 out of 5
My wife, two sons (aged 14 and 12) and I rented this unit for 10 days in March. It was Spring Break in Canada, but I had to work for a couple of days at a conference in Dana Point. So, I brought my family along. It was really one of the best vacations we have ever had. The condo was perfect. Very comfortable, quiet, well decorated and only a two minute walk to the cliffs and beach. Robert was extremely helpful and answered all of our information requests promptly, both before and during our stay. The kitchen is really well equipped. The beach gear was perfect. The condo development's pool and spa were great and there was lots of shopping and restaurants nearby. The location provides easy access to Dana Point, Lugana Beach, San Diego and of course LA. I can't say enough about how positive our entire experience with this rental was. It is our new MUST STAY in CA (and we are really picky).

This is a beautiful condo with all the amenities, including all the kitchenware one might need. Our month-long vacation wasn't long enough. After taking several side trips, it always felt like coming home when returning to the condo. Daily walks on the beach, fishing, whale-watching, and quest for best chile rellenos for starters. Comfortable furnishings in a well-situated condo, made this the perfect vacation.
