Cosy home at great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful house at a great location. We enjoyed it a lot. Although we were initially looking for accommodations closer to the beach we came to the conclusion the location is perfect. San Juan Capistrano is a nice little town with great neighborhoods and you can get to all beaches between San Diego and LA very easily. We felt like home as everything is so nicely furnished and decorated. We especially enjoyed having breakfast in the shady corner of the back yard. Unfortunately our vacation has ended already - we would have liked to stay much longer.

Lovely home in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our three weeks at Bonnie & Dan's "cottage." The home is very cute with comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, fantastic yard and a lot of supplied beach toys. It is our "home away from home." We also appreciated the shampoo, conditioner , soap and laundry soap that was provided. The neighborhood is very quiet as well as convenient to shopping and the freeways. This is our second stay here and definitely won't be our last. Ron - the manager for the house was also fantastic.

Thank you Bonnie, Dan & Ron -- we are already looking forward to coming back next summer!

Sincerely,

Lisa, David, Emma, Luke & Kate Musto

First time registrants only

  • 5 of 5

This property is definitely the best selection we could have ever made. It fit our family of 6 perfectly. We had plenty of room, all of the accommodations you could have ever asked for. We had the use of beach equipment/toys, washer & dryer. Backyard was perfect for the grandsons to play. We were not only provided with a gas grill, but charcoal as well. We didn't need a thing in the kitchen to prepare all of our meals. I would sum up our stay by saying, "we're definitely coming back again!"

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here May 2015. The home was perfect. FULLY stocked with everything you need, toiletries, paper goods, condiments. We were traveling with my two kids, 2 and 6 months. They had a high chair and BOB stroller to use. The outdoor areas were awesome for my toddler to run around. The neighborhood is very quiet and a great location to downtown San Juan and the Dana Point Harbor. We really loved this rental and are very bummed that it is already booked up for our next trip out there. Thank you so much to the owners for going above and beyond on this beautiful home. Book it - you won't regret it.

A home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was comfortable for our young family with a nice backyard, parks close by and beach toys, towels and chairs to borrow. The home owner and property manager were great to work with, very friendly and accommodating. We will certainly be back the next time we are in town.
