                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: Like you, we don't like surprises when we travel. We wanted a place we could return to year after year and build family memories to last forever. We commit to providing everything you need for a great family vacation at the beach. The Sand Dollar is a perfect location for all the attractions in southern California with perfect weather year around.

                  Why Monarch Beach:
                  We chose Dana Point since it had more parks, activities, restaurants and city amenities than most beach cities. Music concerts, whale festivals, outdoor movies are just a few fun activities in addition to the beach. Neighboring Laguna Beach and San Clemente expand the options with just a 15 minute drive.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo: : Our condo is in Niguel Beach Terrace, directly across the street from Strands Park and the new Strands at Headland development. We share the same beach as the Ritz Carlton, at a fraction of the price. The new beach funicular is 'one of a kind' and a fun experience for young and old.
