About the owner: When we had our wedding reception in Dana Point Harbor 18 yrs ago, we knew that this city held such a special place in our heart, that we decided we wanted to someday have a second home in Dana Point, to enjoy the beauty and paradise of this lovely city and it's wonderful beaches! Our children love to play at Salt Creek Beach, and we enjoy the outings and activities provided in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel, as well as Laguna and Newport Beach. After making several trips on the weekends from San Diego up to Dana Point, we asked ourselves why we didn't consider buying a second home/condo in DP.... so we did! We are truly blessed to have done this! What a treasure this city is, and the beaches are breathtaking and allow such peace and tranquility that cannot be met elsewhere in the country! This property is perfect for two families or a larger family looking for a beach retreat. You can escape the hustle and bustle and just melt into relaxation as you take in a warm Monarch beach sunset, or take in High Tea at the Ritz Carlton, or even strolling the local surf shops in San Clemente, or getting a great Cappuccino and a great pair of shoes at Fashion Island in Newport Beach! Dana Point is centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles in Southern Orange County, so it has been such a special retreat for us as we visit family in OC and also take in a few waves locally! We hope you also partake in the beauty and serenity of Dana Point and the amazing scenery of the local beaches.
Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach: Believe me, we have crammed our 4 children into swanky nice hotels, but WE prefer condos when we stay away from home for so many reasons. Once the kids are down, we don't have to sit on the bathroom floor watching netflicks on a lap top propped on a bathtub side (or toilet lid seat), but can enjoy a nice breeze on the patio, sit on the comfy leather couch and enjoy a bottle of wine and cheese or home made Pina Coladas while taking in a nice movie on one of two modern flat screen TVs (32 & 40') provided. We also have a DVD player for your convenience. While your delicious warm toasty coffee is brewing, you can make up a nice omelette or pancakes, instead of eating out so often in a hotel and feeling crammed and stifled. There is a weight room/work out room right next to the pool and spa, which is literally steps away from our condo. Would you like an ocean view while sipping your favorite refreshment from a jacuzzi, then you can walk a tiny bit further to the other pool/hot tub in the condo which has an ocean view! How about pack a nice picnic, and take our beach bag, chair and mat to Salt Creek Beach (less than 1 mile away...15 minute walk), and enjoy some bubbly and a nice appetizer while enjoying the majestic sunsets of Orange County that can't be beat!? There is so much you can do in Orange County, and you can take a quick trip down to San Diego (Legoland 25 minutes away, and San Diego and Sea World is 60 miles away, and Disneyland is just 31 miles away). If you are feeling adventurous, you can tour Universal Studios and Hollywood, about 1 hr from Dana Point. The master bedroom offers a luxurious TempurPedic Mattress, and the second bedroom provides a bunk bed w/ 2 twins as well as a trundle bed w/ two twins.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: With all the proximity to amazing destinations in San Diego, Orange County & LA, you would be remiss to not take advantage of this lovely vacation rental for you and your family!
