Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean & Catalina Island!
Monarch Vista is located in the upscale area of Dana Point known as Monarch Beach nestled in the gate guarded community of Ritz Point. Monarch Vista is recently remodeled with new double paned windows and doors, updated flooring, carpeting, furnishings and stainless steel appliances. This upper unit is on the 3rd floor of a 3 story building - thus the AMAZING views. It's bright and uplifting with vaulted ceilings and refreshing ocean breezes. I'm sorry, there isn't an elevator.
Stroll along a lush landscaped pedestrian only corridor through 'The Links' Golf Course terminating at one of Dana Point's premier beaches… Salt Creek Beach. There are expansive picnic area with picnic benches and shade structures, a seasonal snack bar, and plenty of sand and surf! Nearby are wilderness and regional parks and trails with many biking & walking trails waiting for you to explore.
Within minutes you'll be at the world famous Laguna Beach or at the Dana Point Harbor for sport fishing, scuba/snorkeling, and windsurfing/boat rentals. The Dana Point Harbor is only one of two locations in Orange County where you can catch the Catalina Express for a day trip or overnight adventure to Catalina Island.
Be sure to include a visit to the Orange County Ocean Institute to tour an exact replica of the tall ship 'The Pilgrim' sailed by our founding father, Richard Henry Dana, as noted in his famous novel 'Two Years before the Mast'.
Monarch Vista is located equal distance between LA and San Diego where there are endless opportunities for fun, food and entertainment. In an hour or less in either direction you'll find Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Sea World, Lego Land, The San Diego Zoo, Sea Port Village, and The Gas Lamp district in downtown San Diego.
Or... choose to just stay home and relax in the community pool and spa which are heated all year 'round. A fitness center is available in the community club house for your use at any time. There are yoga classes and massage also available for a small fee.
