Bandit's Cove Ultimate 5-Star Living
Helping travelers since 2005.

We do not charge a guest service fee when you book directly with us. We have secure method of payment.
Come see the best that Southern California has to offer; sun, sea, beach, fun and most important, location. Just steps away from beautiful Strands Beach, in the prestigious Dana Point/Monarch Beach area and a short one-hour drive to Los Angeles or San Diego, 30-40 minutes to Disneyland, allowing you the flexibility to decide what you want to do each day.

Conveniently located between the Ritz Carlton, St. Regis & Montage resorts, this five-star 1,100 sq ft condominium is designed with all of your travel needs in mind. On the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway but not next to the highway making this a tranquil place to stay. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying.

This is a non-smoking environment. We have one of the largest 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms in the complex with vaulted crown molding ceilings throughout. We are an upper unit with ocean breezes. The Kitchen is loaded with stainless steel appliances, fully equipped with everything you need to prepare a scrumptious sit down dinner before a night out on the town; yet simple enough to enjoy a quick meal on the large granite counter area before heading off to catch some waves.

Sit and read a book in privacy, watch TV on a large Plasma screen or enjoy a video in the comfort of the large sectional, before heading off to bed. The Master bedroom with en-suite bathroom includes a premium euro pillow top queen mattress, while the guest bedroom offers a choice of two twin beds and a premium memory queen bed; with quality linens to ensure a restful good night sleep. Large ceiling fans in each room for your comfort. We disinfect all TV remotes/phone and clean all linens after each guest. The closets are custom built and there is plenty of drawer space in each room, so don't worry about bringing too much clothes (unless of course, you would rather go shopping). Two separate bathrooms, with top of the line fixtures, and stacked washer/dryer are nicely tucked away and easy to use. Enjoy LCD/DVD TV in your master bedroom and LCD/DVD in the second room. Fast speed secure wireless internet through out. Clutter free room for all your belongings. We also have a port crib, high chair and light stroller upon request. Owners are located close by from Bandit’s Cove if you need any assistant.

Pool and 2 spas are heated all year. We supple beach towels/sand toys/ umbrella & chairs. Our condo unit is the closest to the beach, less than 3 minutes depending on what you are carrying. For beach access we are right across from the walk way directly to the steps, bathrooms and shower and have a funicular (an outdoor elevator) that takes you to the beach. There is covered parking, and plenty of guest parking.

Golf: Too many to list here is just a couple of courses.

Few golf experiences can match the blend of stunning natural beauty and variety of challenges presented at Monarch Beach Golf Links. Here, along the dramatic bluffs of Southern California, master architect, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., has fashioned an intriguing layout in the Scottish links tradition on one of the select few oceanfront golf courses in California. Commanding sweeping views to the sea, this par-70 championship course offers an unending variety of play.

The moment you step onto the first tee at Aliso Creek Golf Course, you know you are in a world apart. Carved amongst the dramatic and lush walls of Aliso Canyon, the Aliso Creek Golf Course has been the exclusive golfing destination in the seaside village of Laguna Beach since 1950 and the most serene, natural setting for golf in Orange County - 9-Holes


Owner info

About the owner: Welcome to The Ultimate in 5-Star Living in Dana Point by the Sea. This was our second home for 3 years; we had moved up to the San Francisco from Dana Point, the family began getting so home sick for the Southern California climate that we began spending weekends, summertime and holiday’s staying in hotels and became expensive, which led us to our decision to purchase and remodel this unit for our enjoyment. We have now moved back to the beach.. This is why this condo (we hope) should feel like a second home to you too! We hope you enjoy your stay!

Why the Owner Chose Monarch Beach, Dana Point, CA, USA:
Closest Unit to the water and High Quality living! DOES NOT back up to Pacific Coast Highway.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Closest to the board walk and ocean. Quiet location-no street noise or pool noise ,just ocean breezes... The largest and updated 2 bedroom in the complex. Plenty of parking
