Property description

PERMIT NO. 14-0156. Guests will definitely feel they have escaped, relaxing in this upper level. condo with a 'pent-house feel.' The decor has been personally selected by the owner and shows pride of ownership.

California Escape is located in the gated community of Ritz Pointe next to the St. Regis Hotel. Guests will enjoy a short picturesque walk to Salt Creek Beach, a premier vacation destination on the 'California Riviera'.

Ritz Pointe/Monarch Hills grounds are well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing. There is a pool, 3 spas. The south spa is a great spot to enjoy breathtaking sunsets over a panoramic view of the ocean.

Dana Point is Conveniently located between San Clemente and Laguna Beach, (5 miles each way) and midway between San Diego and Los Angeles (approximately 60 miles each way)

As you enter the condo you will find a well-appointed living room with fireplace, flat screen TV and soundbar, starfish and beach decor. The pictures in this site show the beauty of this professionally remodeled condo

You might start with coffee on the two patios or walk to the St. Regis or Ritz Carlton a short distance away where you can plan your day. Perhaps the spa facilities appeal to you in the hotels.

Don't forget your tennis rackets as the Tennis Villas is across the street. Tennis Villas is a professional tournament style club that offers weekly and monthly passes for guests. There is also a spa, gym and pool there.

There are golf links affiliated with both the hotels open to the public. Ritz Pointe borders the Monarch Golf Links which overlooks the ocean and Salt Creek Beach.

When you take your walk to the beach you pass along the Monarch Links golf course. The walk to the beach is a 1-mile flat walk and takes about 15-20 minutes. Owner provides you with beach cart, beach chairs, umbrella, collapsible cooler and beach towels ready to go for your scenic adventure to the beach.

Our very own Dana Point Harbor offers restaurants and shops. Rent paddle boards and tour the harbor on your own. Whale watching trips go out daily.

Catalina Island is 26 miles across the sea. A fun day of shopping, eating and drinking. Catch the ferry in the harbor. If it is your birthday you sail free !!

One of our favorites is the well-known Ocean Institute. They offer many programs to educate the public on the ocean inhabitants. They offer hands-on experience such as dissecting squids!

You can take a 5-minute drive to Laguna or in the summer a trolley will take you to the art colony of Laguna Beach. Pageant of the Arts and the Sawdust Festival are only a couple of the must-see attractions. Leisurely perusing the shops and art galleries will take you into another state of mind.

San Clemente is filled with fun, fun, fun. Music, art, restaurants, antiquing. Don't miss Del Mar Street Sunday for the Farmer's Market.

High-end shopping is 15 miles away at Fashion Island. Outlet shopping is 20 miles away in Carlsbad. It's all here for you.

Action all day and peaceful place to relax in the evening. The perfect location, the perfect setting.

Come and comfortably enjoy one of the most beautiful spots in Southern California.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: My name is AnnMarie. I am the property manager for this wonderful condo. I have owned, sold, and managed vacation rentals for 10 years. I am a realtor in the area and active in the community, member of the Chamber of Commerce. I have met the most wonderful guests throughout the years. It gives me great pleasure to see the guests enjoying their vacations and love directing them to good restaurants, etc.

Why Monarch Beach, Dana Point, CA, USA:
I actually sold the owners this property and it is amazing to see what they've done with it. The owner has a real knack for blending colors and choice of furniture. Everything you need is here to enjoy your stay.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is up a couple short flights of stairs, but totally worth it when you get there. Nice ocean breeze, view and no one above you !
