December 2009

Our family had an opportunity to visit Dana Point during the

Christmas season 09. We contacted an owner VIda thru

VRBO and reserved this property for 13 nights. When we got

there we were pleasantly surprised with the unit which was

nicely decorated and well planned for guests comfort.

Owner's high standard of hospitality was clearly reflected.

We thoroughly enjoyed ocean views from every bedroom

and a short walk to the beach. We are looking forward to

rent this unit again possibly in summer or winter this year

again and highly recommend to anyone else who would be

looking forward for great family vacation.

Sea & Sand is a Keeper

  • 5 of 5

We have rented previously at the Strands Beach complex and enjoyed the experience, but Sea & Sand blows the competition out of the water. Wonderful landlady who provides amenities and a true home away from home.

Great location! Very friendly and helpful host!

  • 5 of 5

Vida is a great host! Very kind, helpful and friendly! She always tells - just let me know if you need something. And it is really like that! Her place is very comfortable, clean and cozy! The kitchen has a lot of cooking stuff. And many beach accesories are also provided for your convinience! Location is great! You can enjoy walking along the beach and beautiful ocean sunsets, even from your windows! There is a 5-10 min walk to the beach by steps. Please be aware that back walk from the beach will be very sporty due to a significant elevation, hight difference about 170 foots (50 meters). Nearby here is also a tram/lift to the beach, but it works only in Summer. In not Summer season it works only in weekends.

Refuge at Dana Strand

Truly a home away from home. All the comforts and amenities you could possibly ask for. Ocean view from every window, and the SUNSETS! I will miss them.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Our two-month stay marked a crazy transition from our 30+ year life in California to our new home in Georgia. It was a difficult time, so this incredible location, amazing condo and it's lovely and caring owner was the best going-away present ever. The condo is beautifully appointed with every amenity you could ever want, from a stocked kitchen to beach gear to little extras throughout that always brought a smile. The ocean view is spectacular and the complex is friendly and peaceful, with the added benefit of a pool and jacuzzi as an ocean alternative. Proximity to downtown Dana Point made a car almost unnecessary, with restaurants and services walkable, not to mention a fantastic scenic hiking trail that spanned the beach, cliffs, marina and parks. The perfect alternative to predictable hotels - this is a not-to-be-missed experience.

Owner's Response: Thank you to Maureen and family for choosing our vacation home truly as their home away from home! We were thrilled they could enjoy beautiful and tranquil Dana Point, enjoying beach living for their last couple of months before their big move East! Thank you for being wonderful guests, your care and respect for our vacation home! Would love to host you when you come back home for a visit!

Ocean View from Every Room,5 Star Quality,Steps to the Sand,Special Monthly Rate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of July, 2015. This was a repeat visit as we've stayed here several times before and as usual we had the best accommodation, best communications, and all in the 3 bedroom unit was the best overall quality and condition we have ever experienced in Dana Point over the last nine we have vacationed in this beautiful complex adjacent the Strand Beach and walking distance into Dana Point. The hiking trail overlooking the ocean and the harbor was a2-3 mile hike daily. We'll return again and again. The arrival snacks, fruit, etc. were great as usual and Vida called to assure all was well during our stay.

A Great Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sea & Sun was for month over Christmas & New Year’s last year. Although we stayed at other places in Dana Point during the holidays in prior years, there is no question that Sea & Sun topped them all.

First, there are the accommodations which are the best we‘ve experienced yet in this price range, both in terms of quality and condition. Second, the home is very well equipped compared to most. Especially appreciated was the well-stocked kitchen and the many beach items which obviated the need for us to purchase anything for our beach adventures. Third, the location of the condo complex and especially the location of Sea & Sun itself is nigh on to perfect; with relatively easy walks to downtown, to the headlands, to the beach and also a place to watch some of the more beautiful sunsets we have seen over the years.

Perhaps most important, Vida’s personal attention throughout the entire process from booking, to arrival, to meeting our needs during our stay was the best we have enjoyed of all the places we have stayed over the years. We put up our Christmas decorations and enjoyed the holidays with our family as much as we would have at home.

Our sincere thanks to Vida and to her family for our wonderful family holiday.
