About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Since 2008, the Beach Cottage luxury condo welcomes you to a child and family friendly retreat on the California Riviera, in Monarch Beach. We are located across the street from Salt Creek Beach, west (beach-side) of PCH. Beach access is a short 5 to 7 minute walk away. Redecorated in 2013.

As you walk into our ground floor condo unit you will notice our beautifully and tastefully furnished living room area with a large open floor plan. Congregate around the open island area for a quick snack or breakfast before heading out for your day's activities. Or use the country style dining table (with seating for 6) to share quality family time with a home cooked meal.

Our newly remodeled kitchen features beautiful, new cottage-style cabinets with granite counter tops. Prepare a gourmet meal with the full use of brand-new stainless steel appliances and a large selection of cooking and baking utensils. Whether you choose to prepare a roast, saute, bake or even barbecue, we have the tools ready at your disposal. And if outdoor cooking is your forte, we have a brand new four burner stainless steel propane grill ready for you to use. Barbecue utensils and propane are provided for your convenience.

After a day of sightseeing or playing at the beach, relax with the family in the comfort of our beautifully decorated 'beach themed' living room on a comfy sectional. Watch DVDs and cable programming on our 40' Sony LCD HDTV. From the living room you can access our patio area to enjoy the cool ocean breeze while sipping on a cold beverage.

Our ultra luxurious condo includes two fully renovated bathrooms, equipped with amenities to help you relax. Both bathrooms are beautifully decorated with fine Italian porcelain tiles and eye-pleasing travertine in warm earth-tones. Leave your daily worries and stress behind with a nice long shower in our modern, six-jet, combination rainfall and massage shower panel in the roman shower of our guest bathroom. For the kids, taking a shower has never be so much fun. Also you can choose to unwind in an entirely differently style with a nice long soak or invigorating massage in the whirlpool bath of our master bathroom. The extra-deep 6-jet whirlpool soaking tub offers the convenience of a bathtub for your children, or the luxury of a relaxing deep tissue massage from the jacuzzi tub. Both bathrooms are furnished with soft and luxurious towels.

The centerpiece of the Beach Cottage is our romantic, Cape Cod themed master bedroom. You'll notice the beautiful details, from the deep, rich rustic maple hardwood floors, to the light and airy feel of the coastal colors and chair rails on the wall. Pamper yourself in fine linens from 500 to 600 thread count on the large California King bed. Choose to watch your own DVDs or cable television on your personal 32' HDTV LCD.

Our guest bedroom enjoys the convenience and comfort of being furnished either with two twin beds or one king bed. The king sized bed is made by combining the two twin mattresses together with a special mattress topper that eliminates the center groove. Your kids or guests will enjoy watching their own programming on their own 26' LCD HDTV/DVD.

Beach lovers will appreciate the backpack style folding beach chairs, beach towels and rotating umbrella that are provided for a day of enjoyment at the beach. The world-class Salt Creek Beach is only a short 7 minute walk away. For those of you that enjoy spending time poolside. The condo maintains a family friendly, fully enclosed, heated pool. Our unit is located a short one minute walk away from the pool and clubhouse.

Other amenities of the Beach Cottage include the use of free wireless internet, free local and long distance calling. Keep in touch with your relatives and friends back home and share your vacation memories with them.

The Beach Cottage is the perfect setting for your vacation. Let us make your family's vacation plans a reality. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

About Bruce

I love to travel and vacation. I've traveled to over 17 countries and enjoy exploring areas with lots of beautiful scenery. I especially like to travel to destinations with amazing views and great beaches.

Bruce purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bruce chose Monarch Beach

I hope to retire here someday. It's an amazing location. Being here makes you forget that we are so close to a large city.

What makes this condo unique

I love to take short strolls along the beach, go hiking or cycling on the nearby trails. I really enjoy the location of the area and the proximity to some of the best beaches in the world.

Great location and value

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with our teen son. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. The condo is in a great location, directly across from Strands Beach and within walking distance to restaurants. The property is clean and equipped with all of the necessities including beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, and boogie boards. The kitchen and bath rooms are updated. Nice alternative to a hotel if you are traveling with teens or older kids and are looking for additional living space and privacy. We would stay here again.

Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

Our family attended a wedding and decided to stay at a condo instead of a hotel. We are so glad we did! We found a nearby Costco and were able to eat many of our meals at the condo which saved a great deal of money. I appreciated the newer cookware and the kitchen provided everything we needed. The area is beautiful for long morning hikes and walking through scenic paths. We loaded the car up with the chairs, umbrella and ice chest that were provided and we headed to Aliso beach for two of the afternoons. Parking is only $1/hour and had easy access with restrooms and a little place to purchase food. We slept great as the beds were very comfortable and the rooms were spacious. We look forward to going back again someday.

Perfect for families, a delightful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful cottage. The owners have truly thought of everything--flat screen tvs in every room, plenty of extra linens, even boogie boards and sand toys! The kitchen was fully stocked, and the property was well kept and quiet. The beach is a quick ten minute walk, and the freeway is easily accessible for Orange County adventures. I definitely plan to come back!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Property is very nice and well kept. Easy walk to the beach. Everything is close by. We really wanted to cook for a change so the kitchen was well equipped for that. The bed was so comfortable. Place was clean. It was only 2 of us but as a parent I would say the place would be excellent for a stay at the beach with the kids (2 real bathrooms). All and all a nice property and a great value!

Wonderful Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this condo after we were married in Las Vegas recently. His three sisters live in this area and the location is fantastic! There are so many wonderful restaurants close by, and we loved how comfortable the bed was and having a grill and kitchen for our stay. We also loved having wi-fi and being able to watch our wedding video on the t.v. with no problem. The park by the beach is only a 5-minute walk, and we went hiking at nearby county parks almost every day. Bruce, the owner, was great to deal with. He answered all of my questions promptly and gave us so much useful information about the area regarding restaurants, stores, etc. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and we look forward to returning again soon.
