Monarch Beach condo description
Remodeled in 2008, the Beach Cottage luxury condo welcomes you to a child and family friendly retreat on the California Riviera, in Monarch Beach. We are located across the street from Salt Creek Beach, west (beach-side) of PCH. Beach access is a short 5 to 7 minute walk away.
As you walk into our ground floor condo unit you will notice our beautifully and tastefully furnished living room area with a large open floor plan. Congregate around the open island area for a quick snack or breakfast before heading out for your day's activities. Or use the country style dining table (with seating for 6) to share quality family time with a home cooked meal.
Our newly remodeled kitchen features beautiful, new cottage-style cabinets with granite counter tops. Prepare a gourmet meal with the full use of brand-new stainless steel appliances and a large selection of cooking and baking utensils. Whether you choose to prepare a roast, saute, bake or even barbecue, we have the tools ready at your disposal. And if outdoor cooking is your forte, we have a brand new four burner stainless steel propane grill ready for you to use. Barbecue utensils and propane are provided for your convenience.
After a day of sightseeing or playing at the beach, relax with the family in the comfort of our beautifully decorated 'beach themed' living room on a comfy sectional. Watch DVDs and cable programming on our 40' Sony LCD HDTV. From the living room you can access our patio area to enjoy the cool ocean breeze while sipping on a cold beverage.
Our ultra luxurious condo includes two fully renovated bathrooms, equipped with amenities to help you relax. Both bathrooms are beautifully decorated with fine Italian porcelain tiles and eye-pleasing travertine in warm earth-tones. Leave your daily worries and stress behind with a nice long shower in our modern, six-jet, combination rainfall and massage shower panel in the roman shower of our guest bathroom. For the kids, taking a shower has never be so much fun. Also you can choose to unwind in an entirely differently style with a nice long soak or invigorating massage in the whirlpool bath of our master bathroom. The extra-deep 6-jet whirlpool soaking tub offers the convenience of a bathtub for your children, or the luxury of a relaxing deep tissue massage from the jacuzzi tub. Both bathrooms are furnished with soft and luxurious towels.
The centerpiece of the Beach Cottage is our romantic, Cape Cod themed master bedroom. You'll notice the beautiful details, from the deep, rich rustic maple hardwood floors, to the light and airy feel of the coastal colors and chair rails on the wall. Pamper yourself in fine linens from 500 to 600 thread count on the large California King bed. Choose to watch your own DVDs or cable television on your personal 32' HDTV LCD.
Our guest bedroom enjoys the convenience and comfort of being furnished either with two twin beds or one king bed. The king sized bed is made by combining the two twin mattresses together with a special mattress topper that eliminates the center groove. Your kids or guests will enjoy watching their own programming on their own 26' LCD HDTV/DVD.
Beach lovers will appreciate the backpack style folding beach chairs, beach towels and rotating umbrella that are provided for a day of enjoyment at the beach. The world-class Salt Creek Beach is only a short 7 minute walk away. For those of you that enjoy spending time poolside. The condo maintains a family friendly, fully enclosed, heated pool. Our unit is located a short one minute walk away from the pool and clubhouse.
Other amenities of the Beach Cottage include the use of free wireless internet, free local and long distance calling. Keep in touch with your relatives and friends back home and share your vacation memories with them.
The Beach Cottage is the perfect setting for your vacation. Let us make your family's vacation plans a reality. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Perfect for families, a delightful getaway!
Perfect for families, a delightful getaway!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful cottage. The owners have truly thought of everything--flat screen tvs in every room, plenty of extra linens, even boogie boards and sand toys! The kitchen was fully stocked, and the property was well kept and quiet. The beach is a quick ten minute walk, and the freeway is easily accessible for Orange County adventures. I definitely plan to come back!

Property is very nice and well kept. Easy walk to the beach. Everything is close by. We really wanted to cook for a change so the kitchen was well equipped for that. The bed was so comfortable. Place was clean. It was only 2 of us but as a parent I would say the place would be excellent for a stay at the beach with the kids (2 real bathrooms). All and all a nice property and a great value!

My husband and I stayed at this condo after we were married in Las Vegas recently. His three sisters live in this area and the location is fantastic! There are so many wonderful restaurants close by, and we loved how comfortable the bed was and having a grill and kitchen for our stay. We also loved having wi-fi and being able to watch our wedding video on the t.v. with no problem. The park by the beach is only a 5-minute walk, and we went hiking at nearby county parks almost every day. Bruce, the owner, was great to deal with. He answered all of my questions promptly and gave us so much useful information about the area regarding restaurants, stores, etc. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and we look forward to returning again soon.

Perfect condo at Dana Point for a relaxing beach stay.
Perfect condo at Dana Point for a relaxing beach stay.
We had a group of 4 mature adults in our 30s who wanted a peaceful vacation within walking distance to the beach, nearby restaurants and shopping, a living space bigger than a cramped hotel room and the amenities you miss with a hotel, Bruce, your place fit the bill. We loved it and said it out loud while watching tv too in the living room - comfortable couch too. You've been absolutely great in responding to our questions and providing a helpful email before we arrived with plenty of information about the area, nearby shopping places, restaurants, wifi info, what the place offers...amazing. The pool and hot tub on the premise was great - very clean and well kept. The people were exceptionally nice and welcoming - we almost felt bad leaving. The area and condo area was quiet and people were respectable of noise levels so sleeping was the way we prefer it - quiet. Including the beach, all peaceful. The beach is best accessed to the left when leaving the premise (10 minute walk..it's really quick and quite the view too that makes it feel like half). Going to the beach on the right is much longer so stick to the left as it goes down the sidewalks through some very impressive homes and worked really well for us for quicker access. A local condo owner gave us the tip while in the hot tub :) The place had everything, plenty of towels in the bath, boogie boards, chairs and umbrellas for the beach too. Plenty of kitchen utensils that we didn't need the items we brought thinking we needed them. A nearby Trader Joe and Ralfs was perfect, including the great Italian restaurant named Luciana's within close driving distance (highly recommend!! & very reasonable price too). The master bedroom has a california king size bed, very nice! The room with the 2 separate beds was ok for us even at 5'8", for kids it's more than fine. There were extra sheets and comforters. The place was well cleaned with excellent kitchen. We would stay again and do recommend - I bookmarked this page if that tells you something. We stayed for a little over a week..get in touch with Bruce and paying with paypal went smooth. This is not reflection on this unit, but for the area in general for those who can't escape their phones, Verizon worked the best at the condo and the beach, T-Mobile was ok (2g-1bar) at the beach only, Sprint was ok at the condo & beach (2g-2bars). All three services were great (5 bars 4g) once you're driving around town. WiFi was great and the keyless entry is handy!!

We stayed her for a week and had an absolute great time! The location of the condo could not have been better. Walking to the beach every morning was perfect. The setup of the condo was perfect for our family. Very spacious and had everything you could need to be comfortable. The onsite pool was always warm and never very crowded. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone interested. The owner Bruce was easy to work with and very reasonable!

We stayed here in April 2008. The condo's location is fabulous and easy to get to. The kitchen & bathroom in the unit are very nice and appeared to be recently updated. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again in the future.
