A Detailed Guest Review:

My fiance and I stayed at the this home in Dana Point in July. We drove down to Dana Point from Northern California in order to attend a wedding of good friends at the nearby Monarch Beach Resort. If you are not willing to pay hefty hotel weekend rates common for the region, this private room rental is exactly what you are looking for.

The Hosts
C & H are the perfect examples of great Airbnb hosts. The kind, welcoming couple turned our trip to Dana Point into a very pleasant stay of which we will have the best memories for a long time to come.

A day before our arrival, H reached out to us by text, confirmed our stay once more and asked us about the approximate time of our arrival in order to be on location once we’d reach Dana Point by car. Right after we rang the doorbell, C & H, who were working around the house appeared at the main door and welcomed us to their home. We immediately were able to connect with our hosts and had great talks about our lives: As it turned out, C’s roots go back to Bern, Switzerland, very close where my fiance and I currently are living. It’s a small world, after all.

During the whole stay, both C & H were not intrusive at all and granted us our privacy. They nevertheless were readily available in case we had special needs and questions: As an example, they let us use their refrigerator to store cheese bought at the local farmer’s market. We also were offered to use the laundry and drier machine without hesitation.

The Property
The home is located within one of the many gated communities in Dana Point, easily accessible from major Dana Point roads through two gates with guards on duty. Friday afternoon traffic from Downtown LA was heavy, so you might add another hour to your total itinerary time.

On our first entrance, the guard - already instructed by the hosts - handed us a entry ticket valid for the whole weekend. On consecutive entries, we just presented the printout and then were let into the neighborhood.

The home is located near the main gate, at the end of a cul-de-sac and thus the surroundings are very quiet with no traffic at all. We weren’t sure whether the two neighbors actually were staying in their homes or not.
During our stay, we were allowed to park our rental car (SUV) right in front of the house.

C & H showed us the separate access to our private room, which leads along the pool all the way around the house. This separate entrance allowed us not to bother the hosts when we left for the wedding, the beach or the town. The big terrace is protected from wind and noise by tall glass windows which gives you a breathtaking view of Dana Point, the sea and sunsets. We didn’t use the pool or the beach chairs, but we assume it’s great to relax at the side of your own private pool with this great view.

Inside the private room, the bed is big and comfortably fits two people. Plenty of closet space is provided to stow away luggage and clothes. The bathroom is equipped one toilet, two sinks and a bathtub/shower. Water pressure from the shower-head was great despite the ongoing drought, and also warm water was readily available. Plenty of fresh towels had been piled up for the two of us.

Free WiFi is provided, as well as a TV with some 3000 streaming movies and TV shows provided free of charge. You get keys for both the home as well as the door for a pathway which leads you to the beach within a few minutes of walking. The hosts also have prepared a map to show you where exactly the path leads you and which turns you have to take.

When looking at the private bedroom and the bathroom, or also when in the building’s main part, you can find H’s signature decorations all over the place. Her decoration style and the attention to detail makes you immediately feel at home. And we've rarely been at a cleaner home than this one. Flawless!

We wish both C & H all the best, great health and rewarding lives. Thank you!

We loved the private entrance and the beautiful scenery from the patio. It is lovely and serene. The room is lovely and the bed is very comfortable. We enjoyed the coffee and appreciate the fan in the room, because we sleep with a fan going at home. The shower was very nice with plenty of hot water. The double sink in the bathroom is great. This spot is convenient to the beach and get a bite to eat on the way to the beach. Thank you for the beach bag with towels.

Heidi and Chuck were lovely hosts, and their home is gorgeous. We took the train from L.A. and used Lyft during our stay, which wasn't an issue in the gated community. The view from the patio is amazing, and to be able to walk to the beach was awesome. The area is hilly - just a head's up. Dana Point and the surrounding areas, including San Juan Capistrano are very cute. Heidi and Chuck provided all the info we needed to get to the beach, along with restaurant recommendations, a coffee maker in the room, a shelf in the fridge, and extra toiletries in case you forgot something. The wifi was strong, there was tons of movies and tv to watch in the guest room, and everything was clean and safe. We went out to eat for our meals, but I loved the patio so much I wish we had spent more time enjoying the space. I did have to do some late night work during my stay, so I wish there had been a small desk or laptop table in the room, but I managed fine without, and really that's more my issue. Don't work during your vacation – enjoy Heidi and Chuck's beautiful place instead!

We loved so much about our stay at Heidi's beautiful home. We had every amenity we could possibly need from toiletries to beach towels and an umbrella. The view is incredible and within walking distance to a great cafe for breakfast and to a beautiful beach. The price was a great deal when you compare many resorts in the area are $500 and above. The only criticism we have is the bed was on the softer. I'm sure this is a matter of preference but didn't work well for us.

Response from Heidi:
We're so sorry to hear that the bed was too soft for you guys. Most people love it, but we understand not everyone has the same preference. We just wish you would have said something and we could have easily removed the memory foam mattress topper for you. We hope you'll come again and we can make it right.

Heidi and Chuck's place is amazing. The home is beautiful and well appointed, located in a quiet residential neighbourhood overlooking the sea. A perfect spot to retreat from the beach. Heidi was warm and helpful. We had a wonderful vacation based in Dana Point and hope to return.

Everything Here was perfect. All the special touches you cannot find anywhere else. All of the suggestions in the book that was left with us was great. It was really nice to go somewhere and find nice things to do and great places to eat. The home was such a nice place to go to. You got privacy and quiet. I loved it.
