Wonderful Winter

  • 5 of 5

This recently and beautifully remodeled condo was so perfect for our ~3 month winter stay that we booked it again for next winter. By far the best, quietest, and most comfortable of the Ritz Pointe condos we have wintered in over the years. Property managers Cynthia and AnnMarie are super, very-responsive. A great experience!

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

We came all the way from Amsterdam and stayed for 5 weeks. We are an elderly couple without children. Everything in the house was perfect, nice and clean. We loved the surrounding and especially the walk through the golf course to the beach. If possible we will certainly come back.

Thanks AnnMarie for your excellent advice and help. Thom and Dorien.

Nice accommodations but issues

  • 2 of 5

The condo was lovely and nicely updated. Our stay was overshadowed by TV issues with 3 different visits by technical people. The beach chairs were both broken. The couch was very uncomfortable to sit on. Hall bathroom soap dispenser was broken and piece kept falling off when pumping. Icemaker was temperamental. To us, vacation is meant for relaxation and getting away...we were frustrated with the issues that plagued our week.

Owner's Response: We were sorry about the TV issues and beach chairs and responded within the hour each time you called. You didn't say anything about the other issues, but thank you so we can correct them for the next guest. We take great pride in our response time and providing a relaxing, carefree vacation.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this beatifully decorated and well equipped condo. The location was perfect for us as we have friends in Laguna Beach whom we visited everyday. It was also a nice walk through the Ritz Pointe community to the beach and back. Even the nearby traffic from Niguel Road didn't bother us. Ann Marie and Cynthia were very helpful and answered our questions immediately e.g. when we couldn't get into the condo with the code they had mailed us.

Beautiful Condo in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our five day stay in this beautifully decorated condo! The beds were very comfortable and the condo was roomy and well equipped. Having beach chairs and towels was very much appreciated. The grill was also very helpful for we grilled out one night with delicious lobster tails and steak from the local grocery store. Total meal for three only $28. :) -our favorite meal of the stay. There is also a very nice, comfortable patio to relax on.

It was a little too cool for us to use the pools and jacuzzi's on the property but they were beautiful. The gym at Monarch Point was disappointing for the machines are quite old and unstable. Walking the grounds into the nearby neighborhood was beautiful and a nice challenge with all of the hills.

(One note of concern: Having a long travel from the east coast we were very tired from travel and the time change and anxious to get to the condo. Tip: It took is a little while to find the building for the buildings themselves are not marked well in the dark. The parking spot is not directly in front of the building. Unfortunately, we were originally e-mailed the wrong code to the condo and very grateful they had provided us with two telephone numbers to get all sorted out. I don't know what we would have done if we didn't get through on the second call. The owners were apologetic for the error and thought they e-mailed us the correct code. Also there is only one entrance into the community open late at night. ) All in all, a wonderful stay and we wished we could stay longer. It would be nice to return to Casa deAwesome again someday.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and would like to visit us again. We appreciate your comments. The weather was a little cool while you were here however the pool is heated to 83 degrees and the spa to 103 year round. Glad we could straighten out the code situation quickly. Please know there is always one of us available and we each live 5 minutes away to assist you. See you next trip!
