Another Great Stay!
Just finished another month in 804040 & can’t add much to my April 2017 review. If your visiting Laguna Beach to San Clemente area Monarch Hills condos are great place to be. The location is close & convenient to many areas & Dana Point has much to offer also. Ann Marie & Cynthia are our go to Mgt Team & will certainly get in touch for our next trip. They are very responsive to our needs. Thanks for another great month.
Was perfect and lovely. Very clean and comfortable.
What a lovely 3 weeks my husband and i had in this wonderful unit. From the cozy couches, comfy beds and the well appointed kitchen there was very little else we needed. A great condo for relaxation as well as fast internet to ensure if you work from home you can, easily. When we had one minor problem with the unit Cynthia's go to man was there within the hour and problem taken care of. A great location to the beach via easy walk along Monarch Beach Resort. We watched sunsets every night either at the beach or on the patio by the community hot tub, just step away from our unit. A great unit worth every penny.
Really great place with everything you need.
We stayed at the beach loft at the end of a 3 week trip down the west coast. We were so impressed, the pictures really do not do the apartment justice. It is very spacious and nicely appointed, clean and has fabulous amenities. The communal pool is lovely and the beach a short, and very pretty, walk away. We spent 5 fabulous nights in Dana Point and we were so happy with our choice.
Amazing home away from home!!
The condo was beautiful! Had everything we needed to make a perfect vacation! Roomy & comfortable for 5. The walk to the beach is a bit further then you think but it's a pretty walk. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!
Overall nice place.
The condo overall is very nice. It was clean and fairly well appointed. The unit is a short walk from the community pool and hot tubs. The beach is close by, but is a bit of a hike. We found ourselves making a short drive to the beach instead. It was not a big deal.
We loved how the unit was fully equipped with beach toys, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and a wagon to carry it all. We stayed for a week, and while the included amenities were nice, we had to replenish some things while we were there. Toilet paper, garbage bags, and laundry pods. The coffee maker stopped working, the DVD/PS3 never worked, and there was no corkscrew.
The unit had some nice updates, but they missed a few things: the front door Schlage lock didn't work flawlessly. We had to have the right "touch" to make it work. The new Schlage keypads are digital and affordable. The toilet seats were all plastic and loose. The master bedroom door wouldn't latch/ lock.
Our last concern was there's a downstairs neighbor who came up to tell us the rolling of our rubber ball (we had a 3 year old) was unbearably loud. And one other day, he pounded on the ceiling as to tell us we were too loud. The first complaint was at 6pm and the ceiling incident was at 10am. That was annoying.
Overall we liked the condo. There is a lot to do within a short drive, and the weather was unbeatable. I'd caution people with kids that the neighbors may not love you being there.
Also beware that the owner/ management requires you to purchase an insurance policy prior to renting. (In addition to a damage deposit) They initially said we left a huge stain, and they'd need to file a claim. (We were very conscientious about taking care of their property)They never produced photos and decided not to file a claim or deduct from our deposit, so all is well.
Thank you for your review. We always appreciate comments to better our services for future guests.
Yes we do charge a deposit plus ask for the $59 insurance just exactly for situations like yours. In your situation we were going to file a claim on the insurance which would costs you nothing to replace soiled bedding, however we were able to get the stains out.
It is always better to stay on the top floor so you have noise above you, however we have to be considerate of downstairs neighbors. We have addressed that with the owner below.
Regarding the lock, it just needed batteries which sometimes happens and we had it fixed within half hour.
All in all a great vacation. We are proud of our condo and make all attempts for a carefree vacation as we know vacation time is precious.
