I live in San Clemente. I have two grown daughters 19 and 22. My wonderful girlfriend has 3 boys, 19,15 and 11. I enjoy spending time hiking, surfing and relaxing with my girl drinking wine.
steve purchased this Condo in 1997
Why steve chose Monarch Beach
I grew up not 20 miles from this location. I have been to many places in the world and this place is one of the best.
What makes this Condo unique
I fell in love with this place based on the surf and beautiful beach out front!
Pool / Spa
Jewel on the Pacific
If there was ever a place that took my heart away, it had to be this jewel nestled in a beautiful complex on the Strand at Dana Point. Having traveled to quite a few places around the world I can honestly state that this place does not disappoint in any way.
The condo is well stocked with everything one would need, whether for staying indoors or a day at the beach and I have to compliment the host for such thoughtfulness. The cool ocean breeze that drifts through the condo every day is enough to make the stay worthwhile.
There is plenty of room for a large family w/ kids or two couples. Plenty of linen, kitchenware, and other stuff that added convenience to our stay. Furnishings are very suitable and accommodating.
Outside the apartment, the grounds are well landscaped with very pleasant tenants in the condos around us. This is a superior location and would cater very well to the discerning traveler.
The beach is a few steps away and for families with small kids, a tram takes you down to the sand. The town of Dana Point is quaint enough with activities to keep anyone's interest at peak.
While we would have loved to meet the owner Steve for a drink, our schedules unfortunately didn't allow us that freedom. But we are intending to come back again, only next time for a longer period than the 8 weeks we spent here, a home away from home indeed with all the added trimmings.
This truly is a little jewel on the Pacific.
loved it...so much that we are booking for 3 months next year
Our 2 month stay in Steve's condo was all that we hoped for and more. Our accommodations were great...spacious and filled with sunlight all day long. Condo was well stocked in the kitchen with appliances as well as bed linens, towels and beach toys. The owner, Steve, was very helpful and quick to address any issues...which, thankfully, were very minimal.
It's also close to everywhere we wanted to be...ocean, great walking trails, grocery stores and restaurants. We met so many lovely people and are looking forward to returning to our "home away from home" next February!
Great, Beach Location
Great place, location and owner. Very much enjoyed the " beachy feel" of Steve' s place. He was responsive to all requests.
Will definitely return.
room for everyone
best beach area in Orange County---plenty of parking, and quiet every night. Safe
My family absolutely loved our month at Niguel Beach Terrace. The condo is well equipped with everything we needed and even more. There is 2 balcony areas to sit and relax. Tons of closet space for your luggage. Open the doors and windows amazing ocean breezes. Our kids loved the loft area to get away from us parents. The neighborhood is perfectly quiet so you can sleep with all the doors and windows open. The downstairs neighbors are really nice and helpful. One of the nice things is the unit is set back from the parking lot. It's a bit of work to get all your stuff in and out but it's worth not being so close to the parking area. I'd dessommend being one of those collapsible wagons. (I actually gifted a small hand truck for hauling your boxes or luggage without wheels. Look in storage closet off the back balcony) A little about the location.. Really close to Dana Point shops, restaurants and groceries. Laguna beach is 10 minutes away by car. The beach is right across the street where you will find 4 access points to get down. The one on the far right has a trolley that works on the weekends and ton of stairs for a great workout. There are 2 access points in the middle that wind their way through the $15-50m mega mansions. The one on the left is the one with the least stairs as an FYI. There is one other access point further south that winds itself casually down to the best cove in SoCal. If wou walk up to the end of selva (south end) you will find a nature trail hiking path that will give you a great view of the whole area. Do not hesitate to book this property for your vacation. You won't be disappointed. We will be back and want to stay for 2 months next time!
Great vacation rental!
We thoroughly enjoyed out 5 week stay in Dana Point! Steve's vacation rental was exactly as stated in his VRBO description. The unit was clean, comfortable, well equipped for a short or long stay. The neighbours were extremely friendly and welcoming. The pool and hot tub were awesome for the days when we just didn't want to hang on the beach. The location cannot be beat: safe, quiet and literally across the street from the beach! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a wonderful southern California beach vacation experience and we plan on booking with Steve again for next year! Thanks for everything, Steve!
Walk to Beach! See the Ocean from the patio. Between Disney and Sea world. Next to Dana Point Harbor. Whale watching, fishing, Surfing, Relaxing at the beach, almost always great weather year round!
