Property description

**Due to a recent association rule changes for short-term rentals in this complex, rental periods shorter than 30 days can only be accepted under certain circumstances (i.e. non-cash transaction property swaps, barter services or months where I only have one paying client). If you have any questions, or would like to consider these options, please contact me. Thanks! Gus**

Treat yourself to this amazing upper level, 3 bedroom, 2 bath 'Craftsman Style' beach condo on the beautiful California Riviera. This ocean and pool view unit is located on the bluffs of the Dana Point headlands. It sleeps 6 comfortably and has been uniquely upgraded to accommodate the California lifestyle.

Share the beach with the famous Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and enjoy the great amenities. The local beach directly below the condo is bordered by the Dana Point Headlands to the South and the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel (one of the ten best hotels in the world) to the North. The Ritz side of the beach boasts the popular 'Gravels' surf site at 'Salt Creek', Monarch Links Golf Course and beautiful Salt Creek park, which has trails, great views, public BBQs, rest room facilities and a snack bar. Numerous benches and overlooks provide views of gray whale migration routes, Catalina Island and the coastline.

Although just steps two beautiful beaches and resorts, Coastal Accommodations is also conveniently close to all the major attractions, restaurants, and activities Southern California has to offer. The renown artist's community of Laguna Beach, with its many art galleries and annual summer Laguna Arts Festival is just north (15 minutes); Dana Point Harbor, less than a mile south, offers deep sea fishing, whale watching, a museum and historical ships. It is also host to many shops, restaurants and the ferry to Catalina Island. All types of restaurants, from fine dining international cuisines to casual eateries, line the coast from Newport Beach ( and north) to San Clemente (and south). Nearby attractions (45 minutes or less) include Disneyland, Legoland, Knott's Berry Farm, Six Flags, and Sea World. An hour away in either direction) is Los Angeles, Universal Studios (north), and San Diego and Baja Mexico (south).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach:
I bought my place as a primary residence and soon realized what a gem of a location it was. Career opportunities moved me to San Diego, but I could never part with this property. It's nice to be able to visit whenever it's not being rented, and also nice to be able to let others enjoy this incredible area.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The idea behind the upgrade to this property was to make the interior as special as the spectacular outdoor surroundings. I did not want the vacation to end for my guests when they came indoors. If all you need is a roof over your head, this place might not be for you. But if you want all aspects of your trip to be special, then you'll appreciate the mind set that went into Villa Tortuga.
