Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
My husband and I love to travel and are very family oriented. We have 3 children, so our condo is well stocked for families! I am an interior designer by trade and really enjoyed the task of renovating and decorating this condo! We hope that you enjoy all the time and effort into making this property special and comfortable for our guests.
Why Beverly chose Monarch Beach
We have found ourselves vacationing in Southern California year after year after year. We have many friends and family in the area and decided on Dana Point because of its central location between San Diego and Los Angeles. We also love the small beach town feel of the Dana Point and Laguna Beach area. There are many artists galleries, great restaurants, shops and wonderful beaches. We figured if it is good enough for The Ritz Carlton and the St. Regis, it was good enough for us! The view is the biggest reason why we chose this condo. That view is never going away and we just love watching the sunset from inside our rooms. We also love that there is a community pool for the kids and that we can walk to the beach.
What makes this Condo unique
We really do relish in the fact that we can sit on our patio with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over Catalina Island. It is gorgeous. You can also get to just about everything very easily from our condo. In less than 45 minutes you can get to Disney, Legoland, SeaWorld, The San Diego Zoo, etc. In an hour you are in LA or San Diego. We hope you enjoy our home. It is the perfect little 'getaway'!!

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!
We spent a long weekend recently at this lovely condo. The location was absolutely beautiful, the owner extremely accommodating and the condo exactly as pictured if not better! The location is great if you like to walk out your door to a picturesque nature trail (yes we heard the sea lion's barking) or an absolutely beautiful beach where you can walk for miles. One of the best things we did was to sit on the small back porch at the condo with a glass of wine and take in the view and watch the sun set. Magnificent! We also took Captain Dave's Dolphin Safari and saw two huge Fin Whales which is rare but so incredibly exciting. Highly recommend this tour. It is a very short drive to the harbor from the condo. Overall great weather, great condo, great owners and great weekend. Thank you Beverly. We hope to be able to come back some day to this really beautiful place. Southern California has it all. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us. All the best!
Thank you for the wonderful review on your stay in our home. It was so nice to get your call after you arrived and have you say it was the best place you have ever rented on VRBO! What a great compliment! We also love having a glass of wine on the patio and watching the sunset over the ocean so I am happy you enjoyed that as well! The Dolphin Safari is such a memorable experience, that is so great that you got to see whales! We look forward to having you visit us again soon. Southern California truly does have it all and it takes multiple trips to even begin to fit it all in! Until next time....take care!
Well apppointed, perfectly located condo
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo had everything we needed - linens, a pack and play, beach toys and chairs, kitchen implements... The proximity to the beach and shopping is perfect. The complex is beautiful and the heated pool a big hit with our daughter. We took advantage of the easy access to the I5 and PCH to check out attractions to the north and in San Diego. The owner recommended a number of local attractions and shops, and happily answered all our questions. Thank you, Beverly!
OC Family of 4
My family was looking to get away to a place near the beach and this condo was the perfect spot! We have 2 children and they were very pleased to have their own rooms with their own televisions and we were very pleased to have a stunning master bedroom where you could relax and hear the ocean. The condo is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful kitchen with everything that you could possibly need. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach everyday and going to Disneyland in the evening!! Yes, we went to Disneyland four evenings in a row! The kids thought it was the best week ever and we look forward to making it an end of summer tradition!
Perfect getaway for a family
The pictures do not do this condo justice, it was stunning. We spent a month here this summer and had a wonderful time, walking distance to the beach and not far from many resturants, Salt Creek Grille was a favorite as was Stacks. The condo was very well kept and the kitchen had everything we needed. I would highly recommed this condo to a friend we will definatly be going back next summer. The owner is very helpful and prompt in returning calls. There were 6 of us sleeping here, 4 were children, and we had plenty of space.
Nothing short of lovely
Our family (two adults, two young kids) were completely at home during our week-long getaway in Dana Point, thanks to this tastefully and comfortably appointed condo with views true to the photos. The amenities were perfect and plentiful for adults and children alike. The rental process and follow-up were seamless and professional. We enjoyed downtime at the pool (very short walk away), the beach (short walk overall but on the longer side for toddlers/preschoolers, be sure to have a stroller depending on the situation) and other nearby attractions including Dana Point harbor for dolphin/whale-watching cruises and sailing charters and Disneyland for our young ones, just a 35-45min drive away. Getting groceries, eating out in the greater Dana Point/Laguna/Newport area, shopping and other errands were easily accomplished too given the very convenient location. You would be hard pressed to not enjoy a stay at this lovely condo and locale, there are things for all ages and interests.
