Monarch Beach condo description

Located in Dana Point, CA (1/2 mile South of Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel & the St. Regis Monarch Beach). This is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom ground level condo in the well maintained Niguel Beach Terrace at Strands Beach complex that comfortably sleeps 6 persons.

Located on a palm lined street on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway, you have the ocean to the right and our condominium complex on the left. At this point you are 'steps' away from the Strands Beach at Salt Creek Beach Park.

This area of Dana Point with it prominent coastal bluffs, is also known as The Headlands and is part of what is referred to as the 'Gold Coast' or 'California Riviera'. With Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south, this is the ideal location for your Southern CA visit. You are central to all of Southern California and its attractions! 60 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 60 miles from Sea World in San Diego.

From here you can day trip to Joshua Tree National Park (2.5 Hrs), Palm Springs (2.3 Hrs) or Snow Ski (2.5 Hrs). Las Vegas is only 5.5 Hrs away.

Strands Beach, favored by locals, is actually the Southern portion of the Salt Creek Beach Park. It is a popular surfing beach that consistently rates an A+ in water quality. It is not uncommon to see dolphins or seals while visiting the beach. This is the same beach that guests from the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and The St. Regis at Monarch Beach use.

Our condo underwent an extensive remodel a few years back were everything was rebuilt and improved. This Strands Beach Condo has the look and feel of a quality California hotel while delivering a comfortable home-like atmosphere.
