About Scott & Susan

My wife and I have lived in Orange County for 27 years, and our home is five minutes away from the beach condo, in case you need anything. We love Dana Point and cannot wait to share its charm and activities with you.

Scott & Susan purchased this condo in 2006

Why Scott & Susan chose Monarch Beach

Strands/Salt Creek Beach has always been our favorite beach in California. My wife and I were thrilled to purchase this superbly located condo, because of its short walking distance to the beach and restaurants and beautiful views of the ocean and pool. We hope you enjoy watching the sunset and taking long beach walks from the condo as we do.

What makes this condo unique

When we travel, our family likes to stay in vacation rentals. Therefore, when we

remodeled this beach condo, we made sure that it had all of the accouterments we look for in a vacation rental, such as a large sectional couch , big screen TV, open eating area, and comfortable king size beds.

Most of our guests fall in love with our place and stay with us yearly. We hope you will be one of them!

Such a beautiful unit!

  • 5 of 5

Scott and Susan know what they are doing! The unit is beautifully remodeled and appointed. Everything is incredibly thoughtful, location is perfect, view is perfect, everything is... perfect. We've stayed in loads of different units in this complex and this is easily the winner. Book with these guys and you won't regret it.

Perfect Condo at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo. All the rooms were appointed beautifully, and it was fully equipped. The instructions and recommendations were all spot on. The location can't be beat, right across the street from the ocean. We enjoyed walking over to the walkway above the beach for sunset watching almost every night. We plan on coming back again when we can. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. The owners were very easy to work with, and were always responsive. We had a wonderful stay!

Another 5-Star Review!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month-long stay in this wonderful Dana Point condo. Scott and Susan are tremendous hosts and have paid great attention to detail in stylishly furnishing and appointing this clean and comfortable home away from home. Any amenity a guest would need can easily be found within arm's length. We have viewed other properties within the same complex, and none measure up to this condo. The ocean views are breathtaking and the the sunsets are unforgettable! Dana Point is wonderful coastal community located approximately halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego on the Pacific Coast Highway, with access to many Southern California attractions. We know you'll love your stay as much as we are looking forward to our return visit next year!

The perfect beach Apartment 10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful condo for the month of DEC & loved every minute of it Wished we could stay forever, It was Exquisite. Breathtaking. Spectacular. Even the most discerning of travellers would be highly impressed by this luxe Apartment. With close proximity to Laguna and Newport Beach, a world of experiences and adventures are at your fingertips. Dana Point itself is also absolutely lovely. I hope to be back in the area again soon, and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
