Recent Monarch Beach reviews

  • Wonderful, wonderful vacation

    "We just returned from a week in this beautiful place. The home was more than described in VRBO. Everything was perfect - incredible ocean views, great bedrooms, terrific bathrooms. Even the sofa bed mattress was incredibly comfortable! The place came with everything - beach toys, towels, beach chairs, everything you need. In the kitchen, we even enjoyed a Keurig with all sorts of coffee and tea cups. The kitchen had everything that allowed for me to easily cook a family meal for 15 people with no problem. The grill at the unit worked great. The location of the unit is ideal. It has the best view of the ocean, and is close to not only the beach but also the pool and jacuzzi. We were there for a family reunion and our family of 5 (me, my husband, and kids 16, 15, and 12) loved the place and location. Even our extended family with much younger children, as well as retired family members thought we had the best unit in the place. Will definitely be returning here."

  • Wonderful family holiday

    "We just spent Christmas holidays in this condo & had a wonderful time. The condo was clean and in excellent condition and we enjoyed easy access to the beach and wonderful sunset views from the patio. The pool is just steps from the condo and the photos don't do it justice, it is a very nice facility. The condo is located directly across from Strand Beach and is in a quiet and safe area. Dana Point is close to great shopping (Laguna Beach, Newport Fashion Mall, Costco) and is 30 minutes from Disneyland & the Carlsbad Outlet Mall. The owners were easy to deal with and very helpful. We highly recommend this spot for a family getaway."

  • One Word - BLISS

    "We were so impressed with this place. It was loaded with great items from a very spacious floor plan, big bathrooms, wet-suits for everyone, boogie boards, beach toys and chairs and umbrellas, towels, washer/dryer...and the list goes on and on. We visited the Grotto from 07/19 to 7/26. The view of the ocean was awesome. The steps down a hill to the beach were easy to navigate and it being a "skinny" beach, we had plenty of room to rest and relax without too many people around. It almost felt like a private beach. The water is so very clean and clear and we had choices of snorkeling, tide pool venturing, boarding and swimming with plenty of lifeguards to watch the kiddos. One day, there was a junior life guard camp going on and our two children really enjoyed the entertainment of watching young people running and swimming everywhere. What we loved most about this condo was the location. It is close to freeways, tons of shopping and yet, still very quaint and quiet and very relaxing. We highly recommend this to anyone interested. If you are on the fence between this one and another facility, just select Dana's Grotto, you'll be glad you did."

  • Wow. Just Wow.

    "We have recently returned from two wonderful weeks at this property, and we had the most fantastic time. Everything that you could possibly need is either included or available, down to dishwasher tablets and beach toys. The location is fantastic, and made our trips off to Disneyland, Seaworld and Universal simple and straight-forward. The pool/spa is about 30 seconds away, and the beach a few minutes more. The apartment was very comfortable and really felt like a home from home. I would not hesitate to return, and will recommend to everyone I know if they are planning a trip to California."
