About steve

I live in San Clemente. I have two grown daughters 19 and 22. My wonderful girlfriend has 3 boys, 19,15 and 11. I enjoy spending time hiking, surfing and relaxing with my girl drinking wine.

steve purchased this condo in 1997

Why steve chose Orange County

I grew up not 20 miles from this location. I have been to many places in the world and this place is one of the best.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this place based on the surf and beautiful beach out front!

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out 5 week stay in Dana Point! Steve's vacation rental was exactly as stated in his VRBO description. The unit was clean, comfortable, well equipped for a short or long stay. The neighbours were extremely friendly and welcoming. The pool and hot tub were awesome for the days when we just didn't want to hang on the beach. The location cannot be beat: safe, quiet and literally across the street from the beach! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a wonderful southern California beach vacation experience and we plan on booking with Steve again for next year! Thanks for everything, Steve!

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

  • 3 of 5

The Good: Great location near beach; usable space w/two balconies; AC in bedrooms; plenty of beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, cooler); plenty of parking; Steve pretty accommodating and genuinely nice.

The Bad: Only surface clean, cabinets/drawers/refrigerator/under sink very dirty; outdated food left in refrigerator; carpet under loft blowup bed not vacuumed; dirt/dust hanging out of cold air ducts; screen doors kept coming off tracks; smoke alarm wasn't hooked up; cold air duct filters need replaced; loft sheets, dish cloths, and wash cloths were stained (had to buy some to use); bathroom drawer broken; dishwasher top rack comes out if not careful; one burner on stove not workable (altho Steve did repair toward end of our stay).

The Ugly: Altho the granite countertops in kitchen were nice, the cabinets were dilapidated; kitchen floor old and stained; balcony chairs were old and rickety/no outside table (had to bring our own table to use).

In summary, the entire condo could use a good updating. We left the place much cleaner than when we arrived.

Owner's Response: It is always good to get reviews to learn what others perceive as weaknesses or strengths so that future guests have the best possible experience. It is also a bummer when some people are over critical and scare future potential guests. I would ask my future guests to read the previous reviews to gage better what people think. This was truly a hyper critical review beyond anything I have seen. I pride myself on having the condo clean and I can learn very little from this unfair review.

Great Winter Home

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 3 month stay at Strand Beach. Steve was very accommodating regarding check in. He had provided us with what we needed until we could get to a grocery store. We found the unit clean, although the blinds and windows were in need of attention. We loved being so close to the beach. We were also within walking distance of many nice restaurants as well as nature trails. My wife was able to find a quilting club not too far away. Before we left, we booked again for next winter!!

strand beach condos

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a month at this upstair condo. It is a very nice place. Had all the conveniences of home. My daughter and grandchildren came over for a sleepover and they had a ball playing in the upstairs loft. Nice quiet place considering you are alone the highway. Very quiet. We would rent again.

Superb Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six arrived to find this condo clean and ready to go! We were very close to the beach and the condo owner had provided all the essentials to enjoy our time there including extra beach towels, boogie boards, and beach umbrellas. We had purchased our own food for meals and the kitchen was adequately stocked. In addition, we had a refrigerator issue while there and Steve personally came over with his own ice chest with purchased ice and refrigerated our items until a repairman could fix the frig, which occurred the following day. We were able to relax in the comfortable surroundings and accommodate our whole family. The neighborhood grocery store and frozen custard was just down the street. We were about an hour from San Diego and spent one day at the zoo but our primary reason to be there was the beach and we had a blast! We spent time at Dana Point, Laguna and Newport Beaches, as well, because they were all within a reasonable proximity from the rental. Thank you, Steve, for going the ultimate extra mile in every way, for your quick and efficient communication, and for your warm welcome!
