About the owner: I am the original owner and lived in the condo until my job took me to San Diego. Since then my wife, kids, and I have enjoyed staying there for vacations as well as having other family members stay at our beach getaway. We have had such great memories there that we recently decided to open it up to vacationers so that you can also experience the peace and tranquility of Monarch Beach.
Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach: I used to drive down from Los Angeles to go surfing at Salt Creek Beach as a teenager. It was so relaxing and I felt like I had traveled to a far off beach in another country. When the complex was built I decided to purchase and move there and my dreams came true!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Monarch Beach is the most beautiful and unique beach in Southern California. You will be just steps away from the beach and there are several miles of hiking in the Headlands area. You will enjoy a combination of peace and tranquility along the beaches and bluffs along with the flexibility of going shopping, sight seeing, easy going or fine dining, and a glass of wine at sunset!
