Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Enjoy a stay at my tranquil, resort-like home on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean & Dana Point Harbor and just minutes from Dana Point Harbor and San Clemente where you can enjoy upscale dining & shopping. The San Juan Capistrano Mission (known as the "Jewel" of all missions), Los Rios Street and downtown SJC will charm the most discerning visitors! A "must experience" is the "Swallows Inn & Bar" great bands and dancing that exemplifies the small town feel!!

Indulge in ocean breezes while soaking up the sun on the back patio or the upper deck of this "ZEN" ocean view home! The home is newly remodeled with plush interiors and comfortable outdoor entertainment areas. Custom lighting, granite counters in the kitchen and bathrooms, stainless appliances. BBQ on the gas grill while sipping on your favorite cocktail and enjoying ...did I already say...the unbelievable ocean view??!! Whether you are sitting in the 43 jet hot tub or telling old stories around the fire-pit, I guarantee, you will be set free to the spirit within and feel indulged! We all need a bit of this now and again to decompress before we go back and face the REAL world!!

The private and serene landscape offers an enclosed courtyard with a trickling water fountain and a comfortable seating area for morning coffee or reading a good book! My gardens were carefully planted and feature a butterfly and hummingbird sanctuary to enrich your appreciation of nature! A large viewing deck on the second floor will delight your senses and provide a beautiful vista point.

Delight in a sunset while savoring a meal at your well-appointed table, either on the patio or just inside the custom wall-to-wall glass doors that expand the inside to the outside. The gentle sound of water cascading from the back fountain will set the ambiance after dinner to enjoy drinks around the fire-pit.

The luxurious 5-seat, 43-jet therapeutic spa using "Silk Balance" to purify the water and soften your skin is always heated and ready WHEN YOU ARE!! You will want to gaze at the city skyline of glittering lights, stars and moonbeams softly spilling onto the ocean.

Enjoy, Relax, Unwind!

I think YOU deserve a little R&R. Don't you?

When your ready to be inside for a while there are boardgames, books, BOSE music systems, 50"Led televisions and a wood burning fireplace to take pleasure. My beds and linens will soothe you to sleep and you will wake restored and refreshed for another amazing day!

No matter your preference; be it art, museums, paddle-boarding, biking, golfing, spa, or shopping in the quaint essence of old historic downtown, I'm certain that you will wish you had just a few more days(weeks) in this place I call paradise!

About Sharon Rafferty

I've lived, loved, worked, worshipped and played

in San Juan Capistrano since 2001.

God Bless America!

Sharon Rafferty purchased this house in 2009

Why Sharon Rafferty chose Orange County

Location - Location - Location! Did I mention the view? Unbelievable! Central to everything available in Southern California! Ideally located for peace and quiet, yet literally minutes from the Dana Point Harbor, Beaches, Antiques, Horsebackriding and Hiking Trails, Shopping, Great Restaurants & Bars, Yoga, and quick easy freeway access gets you to all Southern California Attractions quickly.

What makes this house unique

The property intersects 3 towns - San Clemente, Dana Point, and San Juan Capistrano. All 3 are vacation destinations and some of the most beautiful spots on earth! Southern California is home to Disneyland, Sea World, San Juan Capistrano Mission, Newport Beach, Irvine Spectrum, Del Mar Race Track, Pristine Beaches, Finest Cuisine, Friendly People and the ultimate climate!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are frequent travellers and this home was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in. Beautifully and luxuriously appointed, it provided the perfect base for us to enjoy the local attractions or explore further afield via John Wayne airport, a short 20 minute drive away. The photos of the house are accurate. In fact we found the house even nicer than its photos and the garden of succulents a delight for all garden lovers. Add to this panoramic views and a hot tub and the house is an attraction in itself. Sharon was a very welcoming host and gave us a thorough introduction to the property. The property was also well equipped with loads of maps and tourist information. We have been coming to this part of the world for many years now to visit relatives so know the area well. As Australians, we look forward to the Mexican food, canyon walks, shopping and the characteristic architecture and Mission heritage in this part of the world. And we never tire of the spectacular scenery either - mountains, deserts, oceans and canyons - all in close proximity. Thank you for making your lovely home available, Sharon, and our stay so comfortable! Looking forward to a return visit some day,

Simply Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise found! I very much miss all of the hummingbirds, butterflies and gardens while staying at Sharon's home. She has put her heart and soul in this gorgeous space. The view alone is worth a billion dollars and the great peacefulness that comes with it. The first day there I sat outside on the patio and I don't think I ever left it. She has literally thought of everything, inside and outside of the house. It is also a perfect location; very easy access to everything you would want to do. However, the house was so wonderful we didn't want to leave! This is the first house my husband and I have rented that was much better than the website! A first! We absolutely loved it and can't wait to go back! Thank you again, Sharon, for sharing your home and giving us such unforgettable memories.

This is truky a 5 Star Property - Eveything is first class - Extremely well appointed and Great View

  • 5 of 5

Sharon provides everything you will need to enjoy the time you spend at her home. It is in a great location with easy access to any of the area attractions - Disney - Lego Land Golf Water sports, etc.

We have been going to the Dana Point - San Juan Capistrano area to escape the AZ heat for 7 years now and this is the most comfortable of all of the properties we have rented through VRBO.

If you choose to stay here - you will not be disappointed.

Had to Cancel

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately, we were forced to do a rather late cancellation of this stay, due to illness, and did not stay at this property. However I wanted to comment about the owners attitude, which is always one of my biggest concerns when renting vcation properties. Sharon, the owner, was exceptional gracious, pleasant, prompt, efficient and kind in handling all stages of the process including answering all of my pre-rental questions, the rental contract and my late cancellation. I would recommend this property, sight unseen, based on Sharon's attitude and proffessionalism.

Location Location Location.

  • 5 of 5

Location is everything, and if you want to see many places in southern California, this is the place to do it from. Location is everything for us when we are on vaca, and being nearly exactly halfway between LA and San Diego, and right off the expressway, you can hit all the popular beach towns along the way to either city when staying at Sharon's hilltop villa. Sharon is an amazing concierge and knows how to make sure your stay is excellent in her home. Only con is that the views from the deck and the hot-tub are SO stunning that they will make not want to even leave the house : ) In all seriousness though, house was very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. We felt right at home, which beats any hotel or condo to rent on vacation.
