Beautifully decorated and very welcoming
Throughout the process, I appreciated Bonnie's very quick responses. We arrived for a Christmas stay and found the house decorated, a wonderful surprise. The property manager came by to welcome us—he lives just down the street and was extremely friendly and helpful. Overall the house was clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. It is also a short drive from groceries, shops, and movies. It was a great place for our family to gather for the holiday.
Wonderful Experience!!!! Perfect Location!!!!
Art lovers...enjoy the architectural details of this home, as well as the beautiful artwork throughout of the accomplished owner! Not a detail was overlooked in design, inside and out. Our family enjoyed and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and "EVERYTHING" else that you could possibly need...even down to the stroller. Well appointed throughout!!! Large backyard for our 3 yr. old grandson. Quiet neighborhood which was perfectly located a few minutes drive to either the Dana Point Harbor (with it's numerous "Great," restaurants) as well as, the historic San Juan Capistrano downtown district (with it's equally excellent restaurants) and Historic Mission. 3 grocery stores minutes away in either direction. Excellent bakeries and fresh flowers nearby. We enjoyed ocean kyaking, walks along the beautiful harbor and various beaches! Ron, the property manager, made himself available for any need that may have arisen, No need, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!! The Hawkins Family
We enjoyed our long weekend in this nice cottage! We met other family members in Southern California for the wedding of our sons' friend and were pleased that the home was well stocked with most everything we needed! The paintings and decor is beautiful! The yard is well kept and perfect for our toddler granddaughter to play and explore the fruit trees. There were plenty of beach toys and other supplies to choose from., not to mention the full size washer and dryer. So many conveniences and all you could want for a young child! Thanks to the owners and manager for such nice accommodations!
Brilliant property in an amazing area!
Had another amazing visit to San Juan Capistrano nd stayed here again for another 5 nights. Fantastic accommodation in a very quiet location. Beautiful accommodation home / from home. We will be back! Many thanks Bonnie!
Cosy home at great location
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
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!
