The five-star St. Regis Hotel & Spa in the beautiful upscale Monarch Beach area is located adjacent to our condo (can walk there in 10-15', see under amenities/additional info), as well as the World Famous Ritz Carlton Resort & Spa (tea time, shopping, tennis and dining)! Monarch beach is situated just between Los Angeles and San Diego on Pacific Coast Highway. You can walk to Monarch Beach on an tranquil pathway along the golf course until you reach a secluded beach. Who wants to pick up and pack up after a day or two and move from city to city, or county to county, when you can have it all here, at 54 Corniche in Dana Point....Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, San Diego Zoo, San Diego Wild Animal Park, Legoland, Universal Studios, Newport Beach Fashion Island Shopping/Dining, and of course------- local gorgeous unprecedented Dana Point beaches to unwind in between such excursions. This makes our condo a one-stop vacation! You can take a short walk to enjoy the scenic grassy hills & sand at Salt Creek Beach, or a shorter walk to the Five Star St. Regis world famous Golf resort. One can definitely get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown San Diego, Los Angeles, or Anaheim, while relaxing in the charming ambiance of Dana Point. Your cares will melt away as you enjoy the local sunsets and the warm sand between your toes! If you enjoy fine dining or high tea, you can stroll over to the legendary Ritz Carlton Resort & Spa. While visiting Orange County, you can restore your soul after a long day of boogie boarding/surfing at Monarch Beach, and do some unique shopping at the upscale Fashion Island in Newport Beach or the artsy seaside town of Laguna Beach (5 miles away).

If a more soothing and relaxing plan entices you, you can cook a nice meal in a fully equipped kitchen in our condo, and enjoy the meal on the outside patio, or poolside, just steps away from the condo. Maybe stay in, dim the lights, light the candles and watch the glow of our fireplace over dinner.

When we had our wedding reception in Dana Point Harbor 18 yrs ago, we knew that this city held such a special place in our heart, that we decided we wanted to someday have a second home in Dana Point, to enjoy the beauty and paradise of this lovely city and it's wonderful beaches! Our children love to play at Salt Creek Beach, and we enjoy the outings and activities provided in Dana Point and Laguna Niguel, as well as Laguna and Newport Beach. After making several trips on the weekends from San Diego up to Dana Point, we asked ourselves why we didn't consider buying a second home/condo in DP.... so we did! We are truly blessed to have done this! What a treasure this city is, and the beaches are breathtaking and allow such peace and tranquility that cannot be met elsewhere in the country! This property is perfect for two families or a larger family looking for a beach retreat. You can escape the hustle and bustle and just melt into relaxation as you take in a warm Monarch beach sunset, or take in High Tea at the Ritz Carlton, or even strolling the local surf shops in San Clemente, or getting a great Cappuccino and a great pair of shoes at Fashion Island in Newport Beach! Dana Point is centrally located between San Diego and Los Angeles in Southern Orange County, so it has been such a special retreat for us as we visit family in OC and also take in a few waves locally! We hope you also partake in the beauty and serenity of Dana Point and the amazing scenery of the local beaches.

Paul and Lisa purchased this condo in 2012

Believe me, we have crammed our 4 children into swanky nice hotels, but WE prefer condos when we stay away from home for so many reasons. Once the kids are down, we don't have to sit on the bathroom floor watching netflicks on a lap top propped on a bathtub side (or toilet lid seat), but can enjoy a nice breeze on the patio, sit on the comfy leather couch and enjoy a bottle of wine and cheese or home made Pina Coladas while taking in a nice movie on one of two modern flat screen TVs (32 & 40') provided. We also have a DVD player for your convenience. While your delicious warm toasty coffee is brewing, you can make up a nice omelette or pancakes, instead of eating out so often in a hotel and feeling crammed and stifled. There is a weight room/work out room right next to the pool and spa, which is literally steps away from our condo. Would you like an ocean view while sipping your favorite refreshment from a jacuzzi, then you can walk a tiny bit further to the other pool/hot tub in the condo which has an ocean view! How about pack a nice picnic, and take our beach bag, chair and mat to Salt Creek Beach (less than 1 mile away...15 minute walk), and enjoy some bubbly and a nice appetizer while enjoying the majestic sunsets of Orange County that can't be beat!? There is so much you can do in Orange County, and you can take a quick trip down to San Diego (Legoland 25 minutes away, and San Diego and Sea World is 60 miles away, and Disneyland is just 31 miles away). If you are feeling adventurous, you can tour Universal Studios and Hollywood, about 1 hr from Dana Point. The master bedroom offers a luxurious TempurPedic Mattress, and the second bedroom provides a bunk bed w/ 2 twins as well as a trundle bed w/ two twins.

With all the proximity to amazing destinations in San Diego, Orange County & LA, you would be remiss to not take advantage of this lovely vacation rental for you and your family!

GREAT FAMILY ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
This was a great place to stay. Super close to a great beach as well as restaurants. We had several kids with us and the house had twin beds for the kids and toys to keep them occupied when we weren't at the beach. The heated pool was great on the day it was too chilly for the beach too. We loved that this house had everything we needed from beach toys, chairs, towels to kitchen utensils, etc. I highly recommend staying here if you're traveling with kids.

GREAT LOCATION & VALUE FOR A RELAXING GET AWAY!

Great Location & Value for a Relaxing Get Away!
  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend this property and will return for a future family get together. Location and condo are great and are accurately described online. Condo is very reasonably priced for the area. Owner was very responsive when I had some reservation hiccups.
Condo is located in a quiet, secure and well-maintained upscale development built around 1989. The beach and lots of restaurants and stores are walkable (within 2 or so miles) for people like me who don't enjoy driving in SoCal traffic. Location is also convenient to Pacific Coast Hwy & major freeways. Pool and Jacuzzi were fairly quiet, and gym was very functional.
We loved the daily walk to the beach and enjoyed mid-day snacks/drinks and whale watching on the 180 Terrace at the Ritz Carlton. Walking map to beach through scenic golf course is available at www.monarchhills.com in the photo gallery (left past the club house on Ritz Pointe, 2nd right on Via Luna, left on Vista Sole-look for bike path through homes on left & follow golf course/beach signs for some great scenery, fresh air and wildlife).

LEADERS RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time at this condo. The location was great. There were just enough accessories and kitchen implements to get us through the week. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I would book again in a heartbeat! The pool and hot tub are very nice. The beach was beautiful and easily accessed. Thanks so much.

WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET AND WHAT YOU GET IS GOOD!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have visited Dana Point for a number of years since my son and his family live there. We have rented condos in the area before, but this was our first time at this location. Actually, more space than needed for two people, but nice to have room to move around. Spacious enough to invite family over for light entertaining so that we did not always have to spend time at their house. Was too cold outside for our taste to use the pool, but there were some brave souls who did use it during our stay. Well appointed and comfortable. While we did not prepare meals other than breakfast, the kitchen has all the equipment needed if you want to prepare meals. Bed was comfortable and furnishings well kept. There was some noise from neighbors beside and above the unit, but that has to be expected in any multi family accommodation. Overall, this unit is honestly described in the listing and I would definitely consider renting in the future if it is available when we return to visit.

NICE CONDO

We stayed at this property for a week and had a wonderful time. Property is nicely furnished including unexpected items such as kids high chair and toys. We had a couple of minor questions and Paul was prompt at calling us back. Great stay..

VACATION BLISS

  • 4 of 5
Overall - a great vacation option for families with young kids. Easily would recommend this location to anyone looking for a place in Orange County.

Pros: gated communuty (felt very safe), close proximity to beach, shopping (including Costco) and restaurants via car. The condo had everything that a family needs for a comfortable stay including laundry facilities, linens, towels and beach gear. The space can comfortably accommodate a family of five. Easy access to other popular cities including Laguna Beach and LA.

Cons: the condo is located on the ground floor which means limited privacy (we kept the drapes closed most of the time). The walk to the beach may be far for some (25 mins) but it was fine for us. The only (small) recommendation we would have is that the blinds be replaced in the condo (they are in poor shape).
