Experience a guiltless escape and embrace the easy-going lifestyle of beautiful Dana Point, California.

In the fall of 2012 we bought the beach getaway of our dreams. An immediate full and complete renovation converted the space into its current plush and relaxing atmosphere and is now available to you and your guests for the first time in 2013.

Our home features a 2-bedroom, 2-bath, full kitchen, with loft-style dining and living rooms with European Travertine stone floors throughout. Every inch has been aesthetically upgraded and features especially stunning bathroom showers, new kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, and an elegant dining room chandelier hung from custom built wood ceilings that are found throughout the residence. We would like to additionally highlight our one-of-a-kind dining room table. It's an eighteenth century wood door from Southern colonial Africa, shipped to the US and converted into a table with a glass top.

Sleeps 6 guests. Master bedroom features a new Sealy Posture-Pedic king-size bed with ocean view, and the guest bedroom has a Sealy queen bed and also a bunk bed with twin on top, full on bottom – all beds are brand-new. The guest bedroom has an attaching garden balcony with BBQ. There’s also a dual-accessed balcony off the master and dining room which features stunning ocean view, Catalina Island, and sunsets over the Pacific Ocean. This wonderful view is also present from the kitchen and living room though a pair of large conjoining corner windows. Also, each and every room has brand-new cable connected high-def flat-screen TV, free wireless internet access, and free long-distance domestic telephone service for your entertainment and convenience. Comfort and relaxation await you inside this debut California Ivory Coast beach retreat.

The location is unmatched. Just across a small road a breathtaking viewpoint awaits, which hosts an unobstructed view of the beach, ocean, coastline, sunset, Catalina, and the Strands Beach Estates - a beyond-multi-million-dollar community. 100 steps down and through this neighborhood you will find yourself beachfront at one of the cleanest and most spacious white-sand beaches, with perfect surfing and boogie boarding waves.

After the daytime activities are over you and your guest(s) could be found among the local elite's company at the nearby Ritz-Carlton Hotel. For more casual dining, we would highly recommend RJ's near the Dana Point Harbor for breakfast. If you are from outside the area, you will find Disneyland 35 minutes up the 5 freeway. This stretch of beachfront is perfect for strolls, jogs, or expeditions. There is about 2 miles of white sand beach from the Dana Point to Monarch Bay beach, with stunning estates adorning the hillsides for the entirety. After that is a Hawaiian-type snorkeling cove with rocks and cliffs.

We invite you to experience our little slice of Heaven.

About Alton & Tami Frazier

After looking for four years, my wife and I, high school sweethearts, finally purchased our own spot at the beach for our five kids and us to enjoy. A place at the ocean has always been a dream for us. We live full-time 45 miles inland from Dana Point and visit as often as we can. I have been in the construction industry for over 40 years, and so I took a couple months fully renovating our Strands Escape myself right after acquisition, finishing in time to have our first Thanksgiving & Christmas 2012 at the beach.

Alton & Tami Frazier purchased this condo in 2012

Why Alton & Tami Frazier chose Monarch Beach

We love the weather, the smells, the colors, and that priceless feeling of feet in the sand. The quaint town of Dana Beach is a remarkable little gem of a city with a beautiful harbor that is a blissful stroll away through a nature preserve on top of the cliffs of the actual Dana Point. Eclectic Laguna Beach and its wonderful beaches are a couple minutes up the coast.

What makes this condo unique

We love this area because it has a secluded feel to it. Everyone is very personable to us and respectful to the beach, and the beach never feels crowded. The funicular right across the street is an added treat.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to this amazing property with our 2 teenage daughters over Spring Break and this was by far our best rental experience ever! It was an absolute pleasure working with Tami and Alton - they are so incredibly thoughtful and accommodating. From the moment we started making our arrangements to our final day at their beautiful home, everything was absolutely perfect! The condo was even more beautiful than the online photos and we were so pleasantly surprised by the sweet personal touches waiting for us when we arrived. The condo community is very quiet and its proximity to the gorgeous Strands beach and downtown Dana Point can't be beat. We can’t thank Tami and Alton enough for everything and we can’t wait to return!

FANTASTIC experience!

  • 5 of 5

You CANNOT go wrong with this condo! Alton and Tami are fantastic. It was immaculate upon arrival. They have thought of EVERYTHING you might need - including toiletries, fruit, a bottle of wine, beach towels and chairs, puzzles and games, a snack for each person in our family, PLENTY of space... etc... Absolutely GREAT experience! Thank you, Tami and Alton!

Christmas in Dana Point

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place! It is warm, welcoming, and clean, and we felt right at home. There is lots to do and see in the area, and the owners did a fabulous job of providing us with helpful information as well. The beaches, restaurants, sights and sounds up and down the Pacific Coast Highway were awesome! We would highly recommend this property to others, and we hope to return there again!

Stunning beach condo with lovely ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 3 kids (20,17,13) recently spent our summer vacation at this fabulous condo with ocean views in Dana Pt. The condo was even better than described. It is beautifully decorated and was very well stocked with plenty of essentials that I was glad I didn't have to add to my shopping list. This included everything from toilet paper and laundry detergent to boogie boards and beach chairs. Even the knives were sharp! I cook a lot so this was very much appreciated! The large welcome basket of fruit was very much appreciated! The location is perfect, within walking distance to the beautiful Strand Beach and many wonderful restaurants in Dana Point. We regularly walked to JC's for coffee (the best!) and scones in the morning. The waves were perfect for boogie boarding and surfing. In addition to being very responsive to e-mails and phone calls, the owners (Alton and Tami) are super nice and easy to work with. If ever future vacations take me to Dana Point, I would definitely stay here again. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend either! Thank you so much for the wonderful hospitality!

Best Vacation Rental EVER

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Christmas Day, so we were already concerned that if something was wrong with the apartment, how could we get help on such a day. To our surprise, we got an e-mail early in the day that the condo was ready for early

check-in. We had a code to get in, and we saw the place not only was clean and inviting, but had a big basket of fruit and sparkling grape juice waiting for us, along with cabinets full of cooking necessities like spices, oil, even pasta.

The owners (Alton and his wife) were very helpful. There were six of us, and the place was very comfortable. We will definitely recommend this to families, and we will be back. The only problem was to prepare ourselves to give it back. Thank you Alton and Family for your hospitality.

November Break trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I and 2 kids recently stayed at this property (ages 2 & 9). It is a fabulous property with a fabulous location and is a fabulously stocked condo. We have stayed at many VRBO condos before and most are stocked with the most economical bare necessities....not this one!! It is furnished beautifully as though the owners live there. The kitchen is very well stocked with good quality equipment; you honestly don't need to bring a thing. Even the cupboards and fridge are stocked with condiments and cereals and spices. Just like being at home. The spare bedroom is set up fantastically with bunk beds and a queen which made it a breeze to have my 2 year old sleeping in a bed for the first time (with bed rail provided). The beach chairs and boogie boards and sand toys and towels made it so easy to have a beach day with the kids. I would definitely recommend this condo to all my friends and will stay here again. Alton and Tami are so kind and helpful and communicated so well in advance of our arrival, as well as promptly refunding our security deposit. If only every VRBO owner did half as good a job as them!
