Recent Monarch Beach reviews

  • Wonderful place for a small family

    "This condo unit was perfect for our family of four for a week in Orange County. It was a short ride to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm and the beach was spectacular all week. Strands beach is perfect for those who like to lay out, swim, body surf, boogie board, or surf and it's a short walk from the unit. The waves were great, the beach was clean, and the sunsets were beautiful. The condo accommodations are perfect for a couple or small family. The pull out bed is ample for two and the CA King in the bedroom was comfortable. Dannelle was very accommodating and helpful in making sure everything met our needs. The kitchen was nicely set up with everything you need to cook at home. We also went out to some of the great establishments in nearby Dana Point and had great food all week. We went swimming at the beach and pool almost every day and we literally fell in love with the place. Having beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards available was a nice touch to make the place full service for enjoying the beach. I highly recommend this Condo unit as a great place for a small family or a couple. We didn't want to leave! P.S. The one and only negative review below doesn't make any sense. A small sampling of the other reviews will quickly tell you that."

  • Can't Wait to Go Back!

    "We had a wonderful week in this lovely condo while visiting family in Orange County. We could not have asked for a cleaner, more homey place to stay for the week. The complex is great; residents are friendly, pool and spas are really nice and the condo is well decorated and comfortable. Great location in gated community with friendly security staff. There's a nice walk to the beach through the golf course as well as easy driving access to Dana Point, Laguna Beach, The Strand and other great beaches. Shopping and restaurants are within waling and easy driving distance. We highly recommend this condo and will definitely stay there again."

  • BEST Vacation Rental EVER!!

    "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."

  • Great Locale

    "This is a lovely, fairly recently developed area of Dana Point. The unit is ideally situated for its view to sea and access to the beach. The owners provide plenty of beach equipment and towels for full enjoyment of the close-by recreation. There are a couple of delayed maintenance issues that made our stay just less than the perfect five stars - top complaint: a very difficult and sticky bolt on the front door lock. An un-useable patio grill (broken ignition lighter & uncleaned) was a real disappointment when we came home with fish to grill; happily, the oven broiler saved the meal. Unexpectedly, the condo was missing a Guest Book - either one with recommendations for the best local eateries and attractions or another for guests to sign and leave special words about their stay. All that notwithstanding, we had a wonderful week for our family reunion and enjoyed the best weather that the Continental US had to offer anywhere!"
