Year Purchased: 1990
About the owner: My brother and I purchased this property in 1990. Bob was out running and found it and fell in love with the location. He told me about it and I also fell in love with the VIEW. Since then, we renovated the units, stay there occasionally and also rent them out for part of the year. Both Bob and I are in the medical profession. We love the tranquility and beauty surrounding our Dana Strands home. They are only a five minute walk to Starbucks, restaurants and cafes. They are furnished lovingly and contain original artwork. They are truly a jewel.
Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach: My brother and I were mesmerized with the VIEW from the property as it is simply SPECTACULAR. It is undoubtably one of the most striking views you will ever see - and that includes many from around the world. The property was completely renovated in 2009 and 2010 when we decided to make it a place where we could both go for long weekends or for a week with our families and friends. The HEADLANDS has some of the most expensive beachfront properties in Orange county. Our property is located on the edge of the BLUFF in the Headlands overlooking the ocean. It is the most ideal location at the Headlands as it is the signature property when you drive into the area. You will love it. There is also a funicular that goes down to the beach which is only a couple of minutes walk from the property.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: This condo has a VIEW TO DIE FOR. You can watch dolphins play in the surf or watch SUNSETS from the patio. The path to the beach is adjacent to the property. Outside the door there are about 2 miles of ocean view paths in the Headlands Reserve where you can hike. The property is a 10 minute walk to the Ritz Carlton and St Regis Hotels. The Ritz Carlton has the same view as ours and the St. Regis is located about one half mile from the ocean and does not compare. The condo is a FIVE STAR lodging and has everything you need to make your visit truly remarkable.
