Looking for hotel luxury minus the cost? Look no further! Welcome to the Capistrano Beach Cottage! We are an ultra modern, stylish and chic beach cottage located in the beautiful city of Dana Point, California.

Inspired by the chic, cosmopolitan boutique-style hotels in New York and LA, the Capistrano Beach Cottage has been designed with hotel-like appeal while providing a relaxed beach-life atmosphere. Just a short walk to the sandy beach, this 2 bed/1 bath half duplex features its own private, tropical zen-inspired patio. Get away from the every day and escape to beach luxury right here!

The beach cottage has been designed to provide you with similar luxuries to a resort-style hotel. The bathroom comes stocked with a pair of robes and slippers, hotel-sized toiletries to get you by your first day, a hair dryer, and plenty of toilet paper. Bath and beach towels are provided for your stay. Each bedroom comes with a plush pillow-top mattress, crisp white linens, and plenty of comfortable pillows and blankets. Need to do laundry?

The living room boasts a comfortable queen size pull-out sofa, a flat screen TV with over 150 channels, a Blue-Ray DVD player, and a Bluetooth speaker system.

Location, Location, Location! The beach is a short 0.5 mile walk. Capistrano Beach borders Dana Point's beach, and the famous surf town of San Clemente. Grab one of the beach cruisers and take a short ride down to Dana Point Harbor or San Clemente Pier.

About Miriam

We are your hosts, Miriam & Bryan. Our most enjoyable trips have been in vacation homes. We like the ability to cook our own meals, plus it makes traveling more affordable so we can spend money sight seeing and doing other stuff we enjoy. However the one thing we found lacking in many vacation homes was the sense of style and luxury we enjoyed at the nicer hotels and resorts. For this reason we wanted to offer something that combined the best of both worlds. We started the first Capistrano Beach Cottage in 2015. After realizing how much we enjoyed creating memorable vacation experiences for travelers we decided to do it all over again with the second Capistrano Beach Cottage. We created both beach cottages with a 5-star resort in mind. We wanted the decor to be crisp and clean, the linens to be of the same caliber as a luxury hotel, and the patio to feel a zen and tropical vacation club. We truly hope our beach cottage sets the atmosphere of your own private resort. We want our guests to create lasting memories of their California vacation in our home :)

Miriam purchased this house in 2015

Why Miriam chose Capistrano Beach

Capistrano Beach is an amazing community. This house gives the proximity to the beach while still providing a quiet getaway.

What makes this house unique

This house hosts two units. We live in the front unit and the beach cottage is its own private back unit with a patio. We are here to answer any of your questions and happy to give sight seeing advice during your stay. Consider us your on-site concierge!

This is a wonderful property! We came in December with three adults and two kids for a family reunion close by, and this property was perfect. The decor is beautiful and looks exactly like it does in the photos. Everything was spotless as well.

The kitchen is awesome with plenty of spices and other basics needed to cook. The bedrooms were so pretty, beds comfortable and the place was very quiet. We didn't get much time in the backyard, but that was only because of recent rain. Otherwise it would feel like an oasis! We used the bikes for a trip to downtown which was fun and good exercise (especially on the way back). Miriam was very easy to work with and was really efficient with all the details and communication. I will definitely stay there again when in the area next!

AMAZING stay by the beach!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt right at home. Miriam has thought of everything, from extra pillows and blankets to lots cookware and a pack n play. The touches to house were very detailed and high quality. I can't say enough about the beds and pillows, that is something I am very picky about and oh my did I get great sleep for our trip. We also have three small children and it was so cozy for us, it’s so convenient to be 5 minutes from the beach and 30 min from Disneyland.

We will definitely be back the next time we head to Disney or need a quick adult only get away to the beach!!

Great place! Gracious hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Miriam and Brian have a wonderful place! Walk to Capistrano beach or to the end of the block for ocean views! Easy access to many beaches and points of interest. We took a ride to Point Vincente Lighthouse . Very lovely beaches and views along the way. The place is even nicer than the photos. Modern and comfortable inside with a beautiful outside area to relax and enjoy the weather. Hummingbirds are frequent visitors! Miriam provides many extras to assist in cooking your meals there if you choose. Thank you for everything! Highly recommend!

Beautiful Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This little beach cottage was super clean, delightfully decorated and tucked away from the noise of Orange County. A little gem that will refresh your soul.

Capistrano Beach
Car: recommended

This lovely beach cottage is centrally located to a host of popular attractions. Whether you're looking for the hottest beaches in southern California, or the top amusement parks, shopping, restaurants, you name it. Here are some top sights we recommend:


Capistrano Beach: Just a short walk from the cottage is the beautiful Capistrano Beach. Only a .7 mile walk from the house and you will be on the sandy beach. Take a walk along the beach or even better, grab one of the beach cruisers and take a bike ride to Dana Point Harbor or San Clemente Pier.

San Clemente Beach: One of the top surf spots in southern California, San Clemente's little beach town offers a cute beach with an adorable assortment of restaurants by the pier. Take the beach cruiser for a ride along the beach trail. Only a 3 mile ride to San Clemente's pier.

Dana Point Harbor: Dana Point Harbor is a bustling little community boasting a number of great restaurants along the harbor, boutiques, a marina offering commercial fishing and whale watching trips. Only 2.5 miles away, it is definitely somewhere you want to visit during your stay.

Laguna Beach: The very famous Laguna Beach, home to some of the most breathtaking beaches in Southern California, not to mention the most expensive cars...Laguna Beach is a must see during your trip. The beaches are reminiscent of some places in Hawaii. Enjoy an oceanfront dinner or go shopping in downtown Laguna. There are a bunch of adorable boutiques, everything from high-end fashion boutiques, to art and home goods. Only 10 miles from Capistrano Beach.

Venice Beach: The very popular Venice Beach. Have you ever heard of Muscle Beach (the gym right on the beach where all the street vendors are at?), well that's all part of Venice Beach. Although it's a bit of a drive, I think it's a place everyone should see when visiting southern California. Tons of shops, street vendors, performers, weirdos (they won't bother you, but fun to watch). I highly recommend this beach. 68 miles north of your beach cottage.

Santa Monica Beach: Not far from Venice Beach, is the very famous Santa Monica beach and pier. Have you ever seen pictures of the ferris wheel and amusement park on the pier? That's Santa Monica Pier. 71 miles away from Capistrano Beach, you can make a full day trip of this. Go visit the pier and then walk across the street for the best shopping at Third Street Promenade. This is a very popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment outdoor complex in Santa Monica.

Amusement Parks:

Disneyland: Yep that's right. Home of Mickey Mouse and Goofy. Disneyland is in Anaheim which is 30 miles north of Capistrano Beach (30-40 minute drive depending on traffic). Best to leave early to avoid unnecessary traffic.

Sea World: Head 60 miles south and you enter home of Shamu…is Shamu still alive? Anyway, make a trip of it and enjoy downtown San Diego which is definitely another place you want to visit during your stay.

Legoland: This place is cool! Like literally, they have entire cities made of lego. Not just impressive to the little children. Big kids (or adults) love this place too. Legoland is located in Carlsbad which is 33 miles south of Capistrano Beach.

San Diego Zoo: A trip to the zoo is always fun for the family to do! San Diego Zoo is located 62 miles south. Definitely a full day event but worth it. However I think the San Diego Safari Park is more fun, which brings us to….

San Diego Zoo Safari Park: Ever wanted to go on a safari? Here's your chance without having to fly to Africa (or wherever else). Your very own safari in southern California. Travel the grounds on a cart and watch animals in the open. Giraffes, Rhinos, tigers, lions, you name it. 53 miles south of your beach cottage and a whole lot of fun.

Universal Studios: Heading north towards Los Angeles you have Universal Studios. They currently have, in my opinion, one of the coolest rides ever! The Transformer 3-D ride is amazing. Get there early because the waits for rides can be up to an hour or more depending on the season. 67 miles north of Capistrano Beach.

Knotts Berry Farm: Here's another amusement park that's not too far from you. Knotts Berry Farm is a 160-acre amusement park with a ton of rides. If you're looking for more rides, this is a place to go. 38 miles south in Buena Park. Knotts also has a wa

Water Parks: Both Legoland and Knotts Berry Farm offer their own water parks. So if you're looking for a water park, great way to combine an amusement park trip with that.

Other Stuff to See:

Hollywood Walk of Fame: Honestly this place is only a few blocks, not as glamorous as everyone thinks, but I know most people want to check it out anyway. 64 miles north. The Walk of Fame has all the stars including Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, the Guiness World Record Museum, etc.

Rodeo Drive: Located in Beverly Hills, this is where the high-end shopping is. 67 miles north. Even if only to window shop, it's worth the visit.
