ReviewsWrite a review
We had a fantastic month at this quiet condo which is spacious and really comfortable. Really it is like a home a\way from home. It is an end, top floor property, a great layout with the master bedroom being at the opposite end of the condo from the guest bedroom.. There is also a nice outside space with plenty of outside furniture. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and there is a separate utility room with washer and dryer. It has everything you could possibly need. There was only usually ourselves at the pool, and the area with the hot tub with the sea view is lovely and there was only ever one other person there!. The location is great, a 10 minute drive to Dana Harbour and in a couple of minutes you can be entering the start of Laguna. Alex and his wife were really helpful about local attractions and there is plenty of information in the condo aswell. We would strongly recommend this condo to anyone, whether it be a couple, family or a vacation with friends.

Extraordinary experience !!!
Extraordinary experience !!!
An amazing place!!!!!! My husband and I stayed there for almost 2 months together with my 3 years old daughter.We felt just like home nice and cozy. The condo is situated in a luxurious complex just a few minutes walk to the magnificent view of the Monarch beach! Dana Point Harbor is about 5 min drive, Laguna beach is also very close. Groceries are all over the place...:) Alex is a great host! The unit has everything you could have ever think of .We would definitely stay there again! Hope you will enjoy it too :)

Exceeded our expectations
Exceeded our expectations
We had our family of 8 and couldn't have been more pleased with the accommodations. I highly recommend staying here. It was very close to the beach. The neighborhoods were immaculate. We chose Dana Point because it was an equal amount of time away from Lego Land and Disneyland and it really was. Perfect location. If I could give a word of advice, the downstairs neighbors were sensitive with any noise (they would pound on the walls and even wrote us a note, and I didn't feel like we were noisy). (Just some advise if you are traveling with children). I will absolutely consider staying here again.

A Good Holiday condo
A Good Holiday condo
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Del Mar, it was very well equiped for our needs. The picture was a little misleading as we did not have a pool overlooking the ocean. The walk to the beach was about 15mins.which did us good . All in all,very quiet and very comfortable beds. We did some babysitting for our Californian grandchildren and that worked out very well with the pack n play provided and also the extra bedroom was very spacious for the 2 children.We are hoping to stay there again on our next trip to Laguna Niguel. Alex ,(owner) was very helpful and accomodating with flexible dates.

Comfortable and Quiet Place.
We are leaving tomorrow but just wanted to say that my family had a great stay at the condo! The layout of the condo was perfect for my family of four. It was very centrally located to everything yet a quiet getaway from the beach crowds. So thank you very much! We definitely will be staying here again in the future. :)

Excellent choice for our famly.
Excellent choice for our famly.
The condo was wonderful. The description on the listing is spot on. It was sparkling clean. Our family consists of 4 children (17, 7, and twins 5) as well as two adults. We were very very comfortable; not on top of each other. We found the condo to be centrally located. We enjoyed Disney, an Angels baseball game, whale watching, the ocean and Legoland as well as the San Diego Zoo. Getting on and off the highway was a snap. The residential nature of the condo was very nice. No hustle and bustle -- just right for relaxation. The neighbors were very friendly. I would recommend this rental to anyone. We hope to return to Casa Al Mare the next time we come to California.

This condo is located in one of the most beautiful areas of Orange County, and is a convenient drive to everything: grocery stores, restaurants, movies & parks. There is one shopping center within walking distance. It is light & airy, roomy, and tastefully furnished. You can walk on a serene path to the beach, and although it is more of a hike than a stroll, it is beautiful the whole way. Just don't plan to take a cooler or beach chairs unless you are really in shape, because it's uphill the whole way back! We enjoyed our week with family there, and ate in most of the time, but did enjoy the Italian food at Fratelli's. It's a great place to rent!

"This condo was our home base during a week-long stay in the area, during which we visited the Disney parks, Universal Studios Hollywood, and San Diego. Since we were visiting these various, rather spread-out places/attractions, we wanted to stay at a central location -- and to avoid the super-touristy areas. This place fit the bill perfectly! First of all, I should say that the condo is beautiful and very comfortable. It was obvious that much care had been taken in choosing the decor and furnishings; we felt like we were staying in someone's lovely home! The entire place was exceptionally clean, and everything was in excellent condition. We like to rent condos, cottages, etc. (as opposed to staying in hotels) when we're on vacation whenever possible, and have stayed in many. This was hands down the best-equipped place we've ever stayed. There were many thoughtful touches, and the binder full of area information, maps, etc. (compiled by the owner) was wonderful! I woud also like to mention that the owner was very friendly, helpful and accommodating as we were making arrangements for our stay.

Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach:
I purchased this condo because of the location and because the complex is kept in wonderful condition. When I was moving in I had forgotten the new DVD player on top of my car as I was unloading. The next day I went to look for it and it was still sitting exactly where I had left it. This complex is not just clean and serene, it is very safe as a guarded gated community.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Salt Creek Beach is minutes away for wonderful walks or bike rides, with the most spectacular sunsets in the evenings. You can view the sunsets at the beach from the Ritz Carlton Hotel or from your patio. During New Years eve,we have beautiful fireworks display that can be viewed from your condo, or you can go to Salt Creek Beach and view it from there.
