Monarch Beach condo description

PRIME LOCATION. The location of our condominium can't be beat. Its location allows visitors access to world-class everything—world class beaches, golf, dining, walking trails, Dana Point Harbor, and world class hotels. The unit is located on the very south end of the Niguel Beach Terrace condominium complex which provides for a great deal of privacy. The complex is adjacent to numerous walking trails which access cliff vistas, beaches, harbors, and the town center of Dana Point. The condo feels very private as it looks out to a number of garden areas, rather than into other units in the complex or to the parking lot. Enjoy this newly renovated, luxuriously decorated space, complete with two quiet beautiful garden patios. The complex comes complete with a heated pool and spa, and is a short distance to one of the most beautiful parks and walking areas in Southern California. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, overlooking the famous Dana Strands and Salt Creek Beaches, shared with two world class hotels--the Ritz Carlton and St. Regis. Because of the close proximity to the beaches and Dana Point Harbor, this is a walker and photographer's paradise!

NEWLY APPOINTED UNIT: Recently completely refurbished and updated, our condo is fully decked out for your comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything a family would need for comfort. The two private bedrooms include one large master suite which opens up to a beautiful garden patio, one of the most generous patios in the entire complex. The second bedroom has two twin beds and opens up to a patio surrounded by a small succulent garden. The floor plan is contiguous throughout--from any room one can move from bedroom to patio to living room to dining room and kitchen with ease.


THE AREA: This is a convenient starting point for many of Southern California's tourist attractions and activities. Walk to the newly opened nature trails over the Headlands, with sitting areas and view points out over the ocean. Stroll down one of the many paths to the beach below. Enjoy a day of golf or take in a spa treatment at the Ritz Carlton or St. Regis hotels, both within half a mile away. Just to the south is Dana Point Harbor with sailing, fishing, whale-watching, restaurants, shops, home to the historic tall ship “The Pilgrim”, the Ocean Institute and adjacent tide pools. Further south are the cities of San Clemente with an excellent pier, Historic Mission San Juan Capistrano, and San Diego with its famous Sea World , Wild Animal Park and the San Diego Zoo (about 1-hour drive).

A short drive to the north is Laguna Beach (5-6 miles), famous for its beautiful beaches and coves, art galleries, and the Pageant of the Masters summer productions. Travel a little further up the coast to Newport Beach (10-12 miles), home to world-class shopping at Fashion Island, and the Balboa Pier. Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm is within a 45-minute drive north.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We recently purchased this property after walking and exploring all that the area offers. We fell in love with the long stretches of beaches nearby, accessibility to Dana Point and the Harbor, and are happy to share this unique location with those from outside the area.

          Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach:
          We shopped in the region for quite some time having grown up in the area, and found this particular unit in the complex to be exceptional. It's gardens are like none other in the Niguel Beach Terrace complex because the unit looks out into neighboring greenbelt and it's location is next to one of the most prestigious developments in south Orange County, The Strand.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          The Strands Beach & Garden Retreat is a walker's paradise! We fell in love with the area during our almost daily walks throughout Dana Point Harbor, the Headlands, and the many stairways and beaches of the Strand and Salt Creek beaches. The ocean wildlife is abundant and on any given day you are likely to witness dolphins and pelicans or the sweet sounds of the harbor seals barking.
