About Beth Everett
We moved here from Omaha Nebraska after we both retired to be close to our children and our rental property. We have owned this condo called Cleopatra since 2002. It is a two bedroom condo, with panoramic ocean view. . We have had guests from all over the world that have traveled here to enjoy the area. It is such fun meeting these wonderful families. This has been such a delightful way to spend our retirement, meeting our guests who are always happy when they arrive and happy when they depart. Our main goal is to see that our guests are comfortable and enjoy their visit. We live just one mile away so if they need us for any reason, we are here to help.

Beth Everett purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Beth Everett chose Monarch Beach
My husband and I are both retired and we were ready for California coastal weather after living in Nebraska for 25 years, plus we wanted to be close to our children and our California property plus this weather is amazing. Year round it is comfortable and delightful. It cannot be beat.
What makes this Condo unique
This condo has wonderful panoramic ocean view and also over looks our heated pool year round from one of two patios. on other side. Seeing the beautiful blue ocean is like looking at a beautiful painting. The ocean has many different personalities and it has many different colors. Each day you can enjoy a different color of the ocean from this condo; sometimes it is bright blue, light blue or dark green, silver or gray when it is angry. Sometimes it is even red or gold with the sun's reflection as the sun is setting and reflecting on the ocean. Each day people from all over the city come to watch the sun go down. It is a favorite enjoyment for so many. You can enjoy our view because we are directly across from beach trails and the beach public access. Being on the ocean side of Pacific Coast Highway with this public beach access directly in front of this condo is a special advantage. Your children can run/walk right down to the sandy beach and run on walk beside the ocean as they watch the waves. It will be an experience they will never forget.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
The Best ever stay at a VRBO
Our experience along with the customer service that Betha provided was unbelievable . The place is beautiful and the location couldn't have been more perfect. She thought of everything to have a wonderful experience was there for my family . There wasn't anything that she didn't think of !!!!
Whether it was the daily walks on the beach that is just a stones throw away ........or the beautiful sunsets our stay exceeded our expectations .
The part that stands out the most is just how nice and attentive Betha was for our family .
Again this has been the best stay ever in a VRBO and I can't recommend "Cleopatra " enough .
My kids love it so much that they want to move to Dana Point !!
Not all owners care as much as Betha
Thanks Betha ...
Danny. To my surprise I just noticed your wonderful review. Thank you so much. . Being a retired teacher, I especially love hearing about the fun families are sharing together on the beach. That is what is special about your review;
comments made from your children. Believe it or not, in the past years, I have had 10 families that have loved those condos so much, as well as the city if Dana Point, they came back and purchase property in Dana Point. Several have purchased condos in that complex, Niguel Beach Terrace through the years, because they loved it so much.
Thanks so much Danny I really enjoyed having you as a guest, I hope you can return again and enjoy those sweet children. Betha
Fantastic and Fun!
We loved the location and condo has everything you need and more. Perfect for walking to beach, a few restaurants and trolley stops. Pool facilities were added bonus. Beach is fantastic! Just be ready for the stairs and hills to access.
Thank you for your kind review. I agree it is a great location but the funicular can help for guests who prefer not to do the streps at least. You were special guests and it was our pleasure having you. I hope you can return again cheers . Betha
Great View and Location, Attentive Owner, Interesting Theme Decor
We really enjoyed our stay here, there's a view of the ocean in the front, view of the pool in the back, and a really amazing location to stay. The owners are very attentive and helpful with anything that you need. The condo is Cleopatra theme with lots of purple so that may or may not be your taste, but still fun for a while.
Jason, I really enjoyed meeting the three of you. So happy you both found a nice place for your new job here. Santa Barbara is a beautiful city and you will find this area here is quite similar to it also.
The Dana Point area is very casual too. I know you will love this area. It really is wonderful. Everyone loves watching the a beautiful sunsets each evening at Strand Beach. Your little girl will be so proud getting to see her mother working at her same school each day. How cool is that? Best of luck and thanks for the nice review. Betha
Love the Cleopatra Condo!
I have been renting from Betha for over 15 years now. So you can say that this on-line review is long over due. I love all of Betha's condos but the Cleopatra is by far my favorite of them all. I always feel right at home when I stay at her condos. The condo is well equipped with all of the amenities that you will ever need. Betha is extremely attentive to all of your needs. The ocean is just steps away from the condo. I love to get up early and go for a long walk along the beach before the sun rises. The walking path will take you right down to the beach where you can see the beautiful homes that overlook the ocean. I also like to take a short walk across the street after dinner and enjoy the beautiful sunset. The area is so peaceful. Everyone is always so friendly. Laguna Beach, Dana Point Harbor, San Clemente and Newport Beach are all a short driving distance from the condo. There are many great restaurants to choose from. There is a great deli less than a mile away called Beach Hut Deli. It has the best gourmet deli sandwiches and it is reasonably priced as well. It is a great place to go when you just want to get a quick bite to eat or just pick up something after a long day and head back to the condo. It is located off of Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and Ritz Carlton Drive. I love to drive to Dana Point Harbor to enjoy the ocean views and the sunset. You can park at the Ocean Institute and walk around the back of the building toward the ocean. There are several benches to sit on. I can just sit there for hours watching the waves. It is so serene. There is a Cultural Center and Gardens in San Clemente called Casa Romantica. It has the most amazing gardens and views of the ocean. Bring your camera, I promise you will get some of the most beautiful pictures. I always look forward to going back to the condo after a long day. I like to kick back on the comfy sectional sofa and turn on the huge flat screen TV in the living room. I almost always fall asleep while watching TV. It is so peaceful and comfortable. If you open the windows in the living room and the sliding glass door in the dining room there is an amazing ocean breeze that blows through the condo. It is such a safe area that I often open the front door to enjoy the ocean views and breeze while watching TV. I am looking forward to staying at the Cleopatra again in a few weeks.
Deb: Wow what a wonderful review. Thank you for that. I really enjoyed reading it but most of all I want you to know, you have been such a wonderful guest along with your family members too... It has been my pleasure having you come and enjoy beautiful Dana Point. The weather is hard to beat any time of the year.
I look forward to seeing you very soon and thanks again for the the five star rating. Betha

4. The ocean can be seen from the living room
5. The beds are very comfortable
6. Easy access to Highways and quick to all of Orange County
7. We love purple:-)
Scott: What a clever review.!!!! Thank you so much. I love it! Having guests like you and your wonderful family, is the main reason I love doing this so much. It brings joy to my soul. Thank you so much for your kind words. Cheers. Betha
The condo is perfect for a family of 4 but does sleep 6. The beach is stunning and so close - just a short walk and your there! You can see both the ocean (front window) and the pool (back window) from the condo living room. So So quiet!!! Perfect for a picky sleeper. The people around are very respectful and noise is practically non-exsistant. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Rooms had lots of closet and drawer space. It was pretty clean. There are a few decorations small children may be tempted to touch (mine are both over 9yrs and were just amused). Condo owners were such lovely people and were just a phone call away if needed (I forgot the condo code, had to call after 10:00, they were so sweet about it). My kids want to make this vacation a yearly event. We felt so lucky to have such a great place in such a beautiful location!
Leslie & Casey:
Another wonderful surprise review from Calgary, Alberta Canada. I Love It !!!. Thank you for that. It was such fun talking to you and having your family as our guests. I know the children had a blast. Such fun for your children to come here and enjoy the sandy beach and Pacific Ocean. with their parents. Dana Point and the surrounding area is so pretty, we just love it here. Having Strand Beach and Salt Creek Beach so close makes the Cleoaptra condo special. Please come back soon. You have a very special family. We love Calgary too, we hope to go back there again one of these days soon.. Cheers. Beth & Bill Everett
