Monarch Beach is a small, wealthy gated community in Orange County, California located within Dana Point. Its distinction is the St. Regis and the Ritz Carlton-Laguna Niguel (actually located within Dana Point) which are beachside resorts located within the town of Monarch Beach. Monarch Beach is close to the city-boundary between Dana Point and Laguna Niguel, which are both included in Orange County's 'Beach Cities' area. It consists of some residences, but is also a tourist attraction for rich and, occasionally, famous travelers. The name 'Monarch Beach' is often referenced as the name of the city, in place of Dana Point, to make the area sound more appealing to such travelers. This intentional misnomer is the source of many complaints among most other Dana Point locals.
Monarch Beach, Dana Point,Monarch Beach is named after its most prominent geological feature 'Monarch Bay' aptly named as its rolling hills of Sagebrush and Manzanita were once a breeding ground for the Monarch Butterfly.
Like the rest of Dana Point, Monarch Beach gated community residents enjoy close proximity to the beach, a relatively low-crime rate, top-rated competitive public schools, and a relaxed, comfortable and athletic atmosphere that proliferates within the entire Dana Point community.
The Links — an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. — is considered to be one of the best golf courses in Southern California. In addition, the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Golf Course offers visitors some of the best amenities in the area.

Water temperatures are some of the warmest on the southern California coast and range from about 60°F in February to 72°F in August; however in early to mid September water temperatures often range from 73°F-75°F

Me and my husband stayed at the condo for 7 nights, and it was absolutely perfect. We loved the location, and the amenities were awesome. Will definitely be returning for our anniversary!
Incredible week in Dana Point/Monarch Beach. Unit was spotless. Had every imaginable amenity and convenience. Private guarded community 5 minutes from beautiful beaches and all dinner, grocery options. Breathtaking path to the beach through 5 star resort. Could not have enjoyed it more. Breakfast on private patio. Martha was a joy to work with with local tips. Great, reasonable golf also nearby. Weather spectacular! My wife and I already planning a return visit. The ultimate in relaxation and beauty.
The pictures tell a great story. Everything you see pictured was exactly what the condo was like. My family thoroughly enjoyed themselves throughout the week.
The mile walk to the beach was a great way to enjoy the beautiful scenery, fresh ocean air and one another's company.
The beach was pristine, the aquamarine water refreshing and the weather perfect.
On our way back home my family and I were already make plans for next year's summer vacation to this perfect location.
My wife and I stayed here for the weekend while we attended a wedding in the area. It was the perfect getaway in the best location and close to everything we wanted. Especially the beach. It was a beautiful walk down to the quite and clean beach. We loved everything about the condo and it is even better than pictures show. We highly recommend this to anyone looking for comfortable, clean, and quite vacationing. My wife and I hope to come back soon and you wont find anyone better or easier to work with than Martha. Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo.
I spent a little over two months in this rental and can't say enough about the experience. The unit is completely remodeled with a fantastic kitchen, bedroom and family room. Both the bedroom and family room are equipped with cable television and the furniture throughout the house (particularly in the family room) is nothing like you would typically expect in a rental unit. The unit itself is tucked away with easy access to the pool and exercise room. It is also right next to the walking path that will take you on a fantastic 1.2 mile walk through multi million dollar homes, around the St. Regis golf course and under PCH before you put your feet in the sand.
As an extremely anal person when it comes to vacation rentals, I would absolutely recommend this condo to anyone who was looking for a short or long term stay. You won't be disappointed. Just make sure to ask about the not so talked about hot tub at the south end of the complex. If you are looking for a place to sit and watch fantastic sunsets and incredible ocean views, this two minute walk with accomplish on a nightly basis for you!
My husband, myself and our 15 month old daughter just got back from renting the wonderful condo at Monarch Beach. The condo came fully equipped with everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. We were able to cook a lot of meals at the condo so we didn't feel like we had to eat every meal out. And my 15 month old loved the pool located on the property. The complex was very close to the beach (approx 5 min drive) and my husband even ran down the running path to the beach almost every morning. I would recommend it for couples or families who are looking for more spacious accommodations than a hotel would offer at a much better rate. We hope to return someday for another fun beach vacation. The owners are very kind and were very responsive to our many emails and questions
