About Michael

Originally from the UK, I have been in the short term rental business since 2001 in Europe. In June 2013 I moved to Southern California to set up the same service in the US. Specialise in Vacation, Relocation, Corporate, and All temporary accommodation needs. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you have. I try to be as flexible and accommodating as possible for all clients. Have 7 luxury properties available - A whole hose split in two 3 Bed 2 bath apartments on Balboa Peninsular, less than 1 Block from beach, sleep 8 in each apartment. A 3 bed / 3 bath Newport Beach Resort townhouse - 0.8 Mile from Beach with full resort facilities. A 2 bed / 2 bath oceanfront condo at Strands beach, Dana Point and a Lux 1 bed condo on a Monarch Beach / Dana Point Resort - 0.5 Mile from beach

My passions are travelling and experiencing the widest variety of places and cultures I can.

I love both the ocean and mountains and am a avid snowboarder.

I look forward to welcoming you to one of my properties in the future.

Michael purchased this condo in 2013

Why Michael chose Monarch Beach

I moved from London, UK to Orange County in 2013. I'd spent 3 weeks here on 2 vacations in 2008 and 2010 and fell in love with area. The coastline, weather, lifestyle and breadth of activities offered were anyone's dream.

I lived at Ritz Point until starting my new business but stayed in the area, moving a only mile away.

What makes this condo unique

I bought this condo after 6 months of searching. It fulfilled all the requirements I wanted from a property in Southern California. Easy living with On site facilities of Pool & Gym, walkable to my favorite activities of Golf and the Ocean, (with the added bonus of skiing / snowboarding only 90 min drive away), along with being close (all within a mile) to shopping for everyday needs and top quality bars and restaurants, my decision to buy and live in Monarch Beach was very easy.

I now hope to welcome you, so you can experience all the delights of staying at such a perfect home in a perfect location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was great. The apartment was plenty big enough for the three of us. The community is very cute and the people around we lovely. Everything you need is in the apartment and Michael was very easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would love to stay here again if we come back to the area :)

What Nina loved about your listing:

All was great! We loved everything.

Dear Michael,

I booked your condo for a friend and her daughter. My son was getting married last weekend at the Monarch Beach. I never saw your place but they said they had a very nice time. Sorry I do not have more to report.

It was perfect for a short visit.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the proximity to Dana Point's Baby Beach. The view of the ocean from the spa was beautiful! We also enjoyed the use of the pool which was right across from the condo.

This place is paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were,blown away by the beauty and amenities all rolled into an amazing bargain at Dana Point. The condo easily sleeps 4 but could accomodate 6 easily. The unit is stocked with every item necessary to make you feel right at home. The walk to the beach is gorgeous and there are many restaurants close by. We loved Zacks down on the beach. Shake Shake along the PCO and BJS in Laguna Beach. The free trolley will take you just about anywhere you need to go. We loved all of the jogging paths and hiking in Crystall Cove State Park. We love this place!!!!

Perfect getaway location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had such a great experience. Our kids loved that the condo was steps away from the pool and we appreciated the quick drive to the beach. We didn't try walking because with two kids there's just too much stuff!

The condo was well equipped and in great shape. We cooked all of our meals in the condo and found everything we needed in the kitchen. My husband did comment that he wished there was a blender, but that's not really a must have, just a fun extra.

My kids can't wait to go back, and we hope to return next year for spring break!

The place had everything I was looking for. Convent 1st floor, right next to the pool and jacuzzi. Very close to the beach as well. The Unit was well equipped for prepping and cooking our meals as well. Loved it, thanks Mike!
