About: Hello there! Our family of seven divides our time between Australia and the US so we're no strangers to the vacation rental community!
We love our time in California and as a photographer, I am spoiled for choice for beautiful locations all around Dana Point. Most afternoons as the light falls, I'll head down the road to Salt Creek Beach..the sunsets are spectacular! My husband enjoys all the nearby fitness amenities with early visits to the gym or beach each day. As self confessed fussy travelers with five busy children across a wide age span, we know what's needed in a vacation property to ensure the best experience for everyone and we truly believe our home in Dana Point has it all.
Why Monarch Beach: We love all of Southern Orange County but to us Monarch Beach has the best of everything..a central, yet still peaceful location, beautiful beaches and the quaint Lantern District. Spending time down at the Harbor, shopping or getting something to eat at the local cafes, we always find so much to do just in the local area.
The Monarch Beach community is beautifully maintained and being just across from the St Regis, coming home always feels special.
The excellent security in the Estate allows us to feel very safe, even when traveling alone. For all these reasons, we really do love Monarch Beach!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our days in Monarch Beach are the perfect blend of relaxation and activity. Our mornings begin with enjoying the beautiful sunlight out on the patio, a cup of fresh coffee and bakery treats from the deli down the road.
Like all good vacations, some days are spent doing nothing at all..except perhaps relaxing in the courtyard outside or strolling around the pretty neighborhood.
We love that the large size of the home gives everyone room to spread out and the little luxuries like our fancy coffee machine and huge tub make it easy to spend time in!
When we're not just relaxing in the house, we fill our days with trips to Laguna Beach (the shops are wonderful!), Newport (either Fashion Island or Balboa Island) or visits to nearby San Juan Capistrano. The history, architecture and atmosphere is amazing and the petting zoo there is one of our family's favorite places!
On a Sunday we'll often head to Dana Point Harbor for breakfast..no matter what time of year the weather is lovely and the children really enjoy seeing the boats.
Often the evenings see us cooking up a fresh meal (Trader Joes is a great grocery store in walking distance) or heading out to Rubys Diner - our kids favorite restaurant :)
Every trip we make to California, we visit one of the major attractions, whether it be Disneyland, Legoland or the zoo in San Diego. Sometimes we'll take a drive up to Santa Monica or Malibu for the day. The house is in the perfect spot for day trips - it's lovely to come home to all the amenities we'd have in our 'regular' home.
Of course Summer time is always wonderful in Orange County but Christmas is also an absolutely magical time in Monarch Beach with the homes in the neighborhood displaying beautiful lights and the nearby resorts offering endless activities. No matter the time of year or the reason for visiting, we are sure you will love our home and community as much as we do.
