Beth Everett purchased this Condo in 1997
Why Beth Everett chose Monarch Beach
The Unique Benifits of The Harbour House is the location. On one side is the pool and on the other side is the ocean just a few steps away across the street you can walk over a few steps and enjoy from that condo. We are just across from three lookout points. (1) There is a public access entrances directly across from the condo ( 2) beautiful walking trails and pathways to Strand Beach just steps away ( 3) trails around and on the Headlands from walking the sidewalk up Selva Rd. and then you can walk all around around the ocean from this trails at the top of Selva Rd. . . There is a variety of animals in this area that you may spot on your walk. The wonderful views of the ocean and the beach is breathtaking. We also have a Funicular, the only one in Orange County which is now in operation and free in summer and open only weekends in winter. . It will take you down close to the beach but you still have about 50 feet to walk to the sand. . Who can resist a beautiful condo with salt air to breath, fog horns blowing plus seals barking on the beach? You can even watch the whales swim by across from the condo. There are picnic tables waiting for you directly across from so just come and watch the sunset. A perfect place for any family.
What makes this Condo unique
Our most unique benefit is our funicular which is similar to a ski lift that will take you to the beach fast and bring you back up from the beach or you can walk up and down our new steps, if you are a excercise buff. The funicular carries eight passengers at one time to the beach.. It is now in operation to the public free all summer but only works on weekends in the winter.. The beautiful walkway is a dream for any family to enjoy and view the sunset around 5 each evening straight across from the condo. It can be breathtaking. The walking path across the street is great for your walking trial any time of the day. People drive here just to use that walking trail from all over Dana Point and Laguna Beach too. .
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Great family rental
Well maintained property right beside pool area. Mrs. Everett was able to work calendar to allow viewing of 4th of July fireworks shows which was huge hit with kids. Property delivered on all aspects for family vacation.
Charles: It was a special honor having you and your family as guests in the Harbour House. I am so pleased the kids got to enjoy the fireworks shot over the ocean on July 4th. They were special. The condo was left so nice, thanks for that special help. Hope you can return soon. Betha
Superb! Beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you need for your coastal vacation!
We rent vacation homes regularly in the Dana Point area and I can tell you: this was a dream! One thing that stands out is the professional grade furnishings (not 'left over' things from Auntie Millie's place!). Everything was so beautifully prepared for our stay - lovely kitchen appliances, upscale and really comfortable 'adult-size' sofas and arm chairs. This is an important point because the large majority of owners DO NOT TAKE THIS INTO CONSIDERATION when purchasing/furnishing! The beds are new and so dreamy to sleep in. And if this isn't enough - the big screen theater-quality electronics are a wonderful surprise. Easy WIFI access from this location - a must when you work from home - and just steps to the most famous beaches on the California Riviera. We are coming back as soon as we can!
Cathy: Wow what a nice surprise to open my computer and read this. I am so happy when I know my guests enjoy themselves while staying in my vacation condo. So my thanks to you, Cathy, for writing such a beautiful review for me. You have a special family. They were so considerate and thoughtful and left the condo in such great shape. Your family is welcome back any time. Dana Point is such a special place for guests to visit, so having a nice place to stay in Dana Point is paradise. Thanks again for everything. Betha
Unfortunately, this was the wrong property for us. We (seniors) live in the desert and desired a quiet two months in a much cooler climate near the beach. The climate cooperated.
This property might be ideal for young families but not for us. Located next to the community pool, there were screaming kids from early morning until well after 10PM. The neighbors upstairs/across the walkway had a 2 year old who never stopped crying and hollering. The unit above us was mostly vacant but when it was inhabited, every footstep could be heard; there must not be any noise insulation between the floors and certainly no carpet up there.
Worst of all, there was a continuous construction project to replace the stairwell railings (and rotted steel supports anchored in concrete) of every unit in the complex which lasted a good part of the summer. The work commenced daily at 8:00AM; hammers, chisels, saws, grinders, etc. Gardeners arrived at 7:20 several times a week and didn't finish until almost noon; edgers, mowers, blowers in waves. Once a month they would stand in the planters to clip the bushes back (and look through our windows at us).
The owner attempted to make our stay better by replacing a mattress and other (foam) bedding that had been soaked with pee and sagged in the middle as well as coffee makers that were filthy and still had dirty water in them when we arrived. The toaster did not work but there was a toaster oven which we used instead. The padding on the dining room chairs had to be covered with towels as they were quite soiled. There were some ants in the house and there was rat droppings on the patio (with barbeque). A good cleaning and better pest control will alleviate most of these issues.
Every bit of feedback we get is appreciated. Our customer above was kind to take time to advise others who read his review that, yes, sounds of children, property repairs, the landscaping work that keeps our community pristine, and the comings and goings of neighbors are the things you hear through the open windows. Open windows that bring ocean breezes, moist fresh air, and the perfect coastal temperatures are well worth the sacrifice.
Southern California is a unique place, and we live in near proximity to 23.77 million people. There are sounds and nuisances that must be overlooked on occasion.
The 2nd bedroom mattress our guests mentioned was replaced quickly during his stay.
The complaint regarding the coffee pot is regretful. Our long-term loyal cleaning team overlooked that item on this occasion. We extended our apologies and replaced the coffee pot in its entirety immediately. We subscribe to an environmentally friendly pest service, but yes, ants exist here; but generally are under complete control with the except of unusual periods of rain.
In summary, our tenants concerns are ALWAYS addressed as quickly as humanly possible. We want your visit to be WONDERFUL and we take many steps to assure that in the case. We tend to agree, that in this case, this couple is best advised to choose another location.
Gem of a Place
Bill and I returned to this condo, Harbour House, season after season. Everything is clean and well decorated, the kitchen had every amenity we could want, and there’s nothing like the cozy den off the living room for watching TV. Betha is sweet and responsive to any question; she even brought us a treat when my fiancé broke his collarbone. Once, when it appeared that a fuse had blown, Betha's husband knew exactly where the fuse box was hidden. The problem turned out to be the microwave oven that had died. Betha brought over a new microwave that very evening. Combined with a beautiful view of the Pacific steps away, Harbour House is a winner of a place. We highly recommend it.
Ann & Bill:
Thank to you for your kind words Ann . I can say having two guests like you and Bill make my job so much fun and enjoyable. It was such a delightful experience getting to have you come all the way from PA for these last two years and stay in our condo. You and Bill will always be welcome back anytime.
Cheers to each🚕💥💌etha
Simply the best !
I have rented at least a dozen vacation rentals through VRBO over the years. This experience without a doubt was the most pleasant. Betha makes you feel so welcome, That you instantly relax. Harbor House is so tastefully decorated and well appointed you feel like you are in a 5 star hotel. Pelican Hill Resort is the highest rated resort in North America. We often stay in their villas, it's an amazing experience and obviously not cheap. Harbor House with Betha as a host is like that experience but at a fraction of the price. If you ever get the opportunity to stay here you are very fortunate.
Mark: Wow, what a nice review you gave me. Thank you. It was such a pleasure having you as my guest staying in the Harbor House.
I was pleased that you chose my condo for your vacation. That is what I love about this job, I just meet the most wonderful people from all over the world just like you. . It is so much fun.. The best part is they all love it here in Dana Point and want to return. Thank you for being the perfect guest. I was happy to know that your visit was comfortable and enjoyable too.. Thanks again Mark. I hope you can return again... The very best to you. . Betha ..
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Harbor House! The condo was very clean upon arrival and Betha was a terrific owner and very accommodating. She proactively replaced large appliances and did anything we asked of her! The weather was beautiful, except for a little hot a couple weeks, but the location was great and we enjoyed being so close to the ocean! We highly recommend this property to anyone wishing a close-to-the-beach setting!
Sherri & Jack: Thank you for the lovely review. It was such a pleasure having each of you spend the month of September in The Harbor House.. Being a property owner in Niguel Beach Terrace and meeting guests like you two, is such an enjoyable experience. Tell me what could be more fun than having guests that come happy and leave happy? . That is my goal for everyone. I love that you have made my job so much fun . I am so happy you had a lovely vacation in Dana Point. Did you know that Dana Point is known as the most romantic beach town in Orange County?. Thanks so much for sharing your experience with others. I really appreciate it. Please come back again someday. Betha & Bill
