My family absolutely loved our month at Niguel Beach Terrace. The condo is well equipped with everything we needed and even more. There is 2 balcony areas to sit and relax. Tons of closet space for your luggage. Open the doors and windows amazing ocean breezes. Our kids loved the loft area to get away from us parents. The neighborhood is perfectly quiet so you can sleep with all the doors and windows open. The downstairs neighbors are really nice and helpful. One of the nice things is the unit is set back from the parking lot. It's a bit of work to get all your stuff in and out but it's worth not being so close to the parking area. I'd dessommend being one of those collapsible wagons. (I actually gifted a small hand truck for hauling your boxes or luggage without wheels. Look in storage closet off the back balcony) A little about the location.. Really close to Dana Point shops, restaurants and groceries. Laguna beach is 10 minutes away by car. The beach is right across the street where you will find 4 access points to get down. The one on the far right has a trolley that works on the weekends and ton of stairs for a great workout. There are 2 access points in the middle that wind their way through the $15-50m mega mansions. The one on the left is the one with the least stairs as an FYI. There is one other access point further south that winds itself casually down to the best cove in SoCal. If wou walk up to the end of selva (south end) you will find a nature trail hiking path that will give you a great view of the whole area. Do not hesitate to book this property for your vacation. You won't be disappointed. We will be back and want to stay for 2 months next time!

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out 5 week stay in Dana Point! Steve's vacation rental was exactly as stated in his VRBO description. The unit was clean, comfortable, well equipped for a short or long stay. The neighbours were extremely friendly and welcoming. The pool and hot tub were awesome for the days when we just didn't want to hang on the beach. The location cannot be beat: safe, quiet and literally across the street from the beach! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a wonderful southern California beach vacation experience and we plan on booking with Steve again for next year! Thanks for everything, Steve!

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

  • 3 of 5

The Good: Great location near beach; usable space w/two balconies; AC in bedrooms; plenty of beach equipment (chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, cooler); plenty of parking; Steve pretty accommodating and genuinely nice.

The Bad: Only surface clean, cabinets/drawers/refrigerator/under sink very dirty; outdated food left in refrigerator; carpet under loft blowup bed not vacuumed; dirt/dust hanging out of cold air ducts; screen doors kept coming off tracks; smoke alarm wasn't hooked up; cold air duct filters need replaced; loft sheets, dish cloths, and wash cloths were stained (had to buy some to use); bathroom drawer broken; dishwasher top rack comes out if not careful; one burner on stove not workable (altho Steve did repair toward end of our stay).

The Ugly: Altho the granite countertops in kitchen were nice, the cabinets were dilapidated; kitchen floor old and stained; balcony chairs were old and rickety/no outside table (had to bring our own table to use).

In summary, the entire condo could use a good updating. We left the place much cleaner than when we arrived.

Owner's Response: It is always good to get reviews to learn what others perceive as weaknesses or strengths so that future guests have the best possible experience. It is also a bummer when some people are over critical and scare future potential guests. I would ask my future guests to read the previous reviews to gage better what people think. This was truly a hyper critical review beyond anything I have seen. I pride myself on having the condo clean and I can learn very little from this unfair review.

About steve

steve purchased this condo in 1997

Why steve chose Monarch Beach

I grew up not 20 miles from this location. I have been to many places in the world and this place is one of the best.

What makes this condo unique

I fell in love with this place based on the surf and beautiful beach out front!
