Recent Monarch Beach reviews
"I stayed at this condo during May and loved every minute of it. It is literally right across the street from the entrance to Strands Beach, is very quiet, and had everything I could ever want or need while I was there. Everything in the unit worked perfectly. The ocean breezes blow right through the unit creating a beautiful cool retreat. The best part was the wonderful patio off the master bedroom that had a direct view of the sunset over the ocean. I would stay here over and over again!"

"This was our first all family Trip to California. While we were in California 10 days we only got to spend 4 days in Dana Point. We all hated to leave Villa Tortuga!
The condo was absolutely beautiful and it was in the perfect location. We couldn't believe all of the ammenities- top notch, and Gus has thought of everything! (I really mean EVERYTHING! I expected things like beach towels and some equipment; but first aid kit, binoculars, pantry items? WOW!)
We had breakfast on the airy deck and dinner in the spacious dining area. WiFi worked well and there were plenty of DVDs as well as books and magazines. Gus has all the information you need printed up and well organized. The beach is wonderful and just a short walk (or taxi ride) to the Ritz Carlton, where we attended a wedding.
The location is also very close to the harbor and the Ocean Institute. We got to see some of the tall ships while we attended a reception there.
Maybe I shouldn't say so many good things about this condo-- it might not be available next time we want to stay in Dana Point.
Exceptional place, Gus. You really have a winner in Villa Tortuga."

"This condo served as my families temporary home for four months, before our move out of state. Cannot beat the location, as it is across the street from one of Dana Points most beautiful beaches. The owners are nice and accommodating, and very easy to reach when needed. Kitchen faucet needed replacing and it was literally done within an hour of me calling to let them know there was a problem. Stocked with more than you need. This place was a great way to say goodby to beautiful California."

Ocean View from Every Room,5 Star Quality,Steps to the Sand,Special Monthly Rate
"We stayed for the month of July, 2015. This was a repeat visit as we've stayed here several times before and as usual we had the best accommodation, best communications, and all in the 3 bedroom unit was the best overall quality and condition we have ever experienced in Dana Point over the last nine we have vacationed in this beautiful complex adjacent the Strand Beach and walking distance into Dana Point. The hiking trail overlooking the ocean and the harbor was a2-3 mile hike daily. We'll return again and again. The arrival snacks, fruit, etc. were great as usual and Vida called to assure all was well during our stay."
