Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean & Catalina Island!

Monarch Vista is located in the upscale area of Dana Point known as Monarch Beach nestled in the gate guarded community of Ritz Point. Monarch Vista is recently remodeled with new double paned windows and doors, updated flooring, carpeting, furnishings and stainless steel appliances. This upper unit is on the 3rd floor of a 3 story building - thus the AMAZING views. It's bright and uplifting with vaulted ceilings and refreshing ocean breezes. I'm sorry, there isn't an elevator.

Stroll along a lush landscaped pedestrian only corridor through 'The Links' Golf Course terminating at one of Dana Point's premier beaches… Salt Creek Beach. There are expansive picnic area with picnic benches and shade structures, a seasonal snack bar, and plenty of sand and surf! Nearby are wilderness and regional parks and trails with many biking & walking trails waiting for you to explore.

Within minutes you'll be at the world famous Laguna Beach or at the Dana Point Harbor for sport fishing, scuba/snorkeling, and windsurfing/boat rentals. The Dana Point Harbor is only one of two locations in Orange County where you can catch the Catalina Express for a day trip or overnight adventure to Catalina Island.

Be sure to include a visit to the Orange County Ocean Institute to tour an exact replica of the tall ship 'The Pilgrim' sailed by our founding father, Richard Henry Dana, as noted in his famous novel 'Two Years before the Mast'.

Monarch Vista is located equal distance between LA and San Diego where there are endless opportunities for fun, food and entertainment. In an hour or less in either direction you'll find Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Sea World, Lego Land, The San Diego Zoo, Sea Port Village, and The Gas Lamp district in downtown San Diego.

Or... choose to just stay home and relax in the community pool and spa which are heated all year 'round. A fitness center is available in the community club house for your use at any time. There are yoga classes and massage also available for a small fee.

A Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this condo. It was our third time staying in ritz point and this condo was by far the best! It is sunny and bright and has amazing views from the porch! I also loved the high table and chairs. I could look at at the ocean all day! The one thing I would love for them to add is Tommy Bahama beach chairs. We took a few trips to the beach and the camping style chair is just not comfortable. Overall, this was a GREAT vacation and we can't wait to come back!

Jeff was very prompt and helpful in helping us to finalize the reservation smooth and quickly. Ther area and view of the Condo was beautiful. It is three flrs of stairs up so it was a bit of a struggle getting 5 bags & more upstairs. Wished we could have checked in earlier than 3:30/4:00pm since we got in at 10:50am. But the place was perfect for what we needed and it had pretty much all you needed, a very large washer & dryer, cooler, large refrigerator, beach mat, towels etc. from what other visitors had left for the next guests. We left a brand new boogie board. Near gorgeous beaches & St. Regis. The bed was a nice size but abit lumpy for our taste and the pool area seem to look larger in the pictures than actual but still nice. Wished we could have got the fireplace to work wewould have enjoyed it more& maybe All in all was a wonderful

Happy travelers

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased to have found this choice property. It is quiet, clean, & has an ocean view off of a nicely furnished balcony deck!!! The location is outstanding & is a very safe gated community. Our hosts/property managers are professionals, helpful, & responsive !! We have stayed 3x & already have a return trip planned...a home away from home!!! Thank you!!!

Did we tell you about the view!!

  • 5 of 5

Talk about million dollar views! Sunsets behind Catalina Island from the balcony almost every night. Frequently our 20 minute walk to the beach would last 2-3 hours as we couldn't resist the temptation to explore further and savor the sand, the surf and the ocean views trying to spot whales and dolphins.

we have been spending 2-3 months in Socal for the past five years, renting condos for our stay. Without a doubt the Monarch Vista has been the best of them all. Have no fear, the amenities are as advertised. Very comfortable and well equipped. Did I mention the views!?😀 Vacation Concierge was prompt to address our concerns (only one ). Great stay.
