1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-4
I am the original owner and lived in the condo until my job took me to San Diego. Since then my wife, kids, and I have enjoyed staying there for vacations as well as having other family members stay at our beach getaway. We have had such great memories there that we recently decided to open it up to vacationers so that you can also experience the peace and tranquility of Monarch Beach.
Mike purchased this Condo in 1983
Why Mike chose Monarch Beach
I used to drive down from Los Angeles to go surfing at Salt Creek Beach as a teenager. It was so relaxing and I felt like I had traveled to a far off beach in another country. When the complex was built I decided to purchase and move there and my dreams came true!
What makes this Condo unique
Monarch Beach is the most beautiful and unique beach in Southern California. You will be just steps away from the beach and there are several miles of hiking in the Headlands area. You will enjoy a combination of peace and tranquility along the beaches and bluffs along with the flexibility of going shopping, sight seeing, easy going or fine dining, and a glass of wine at sunset!

Quiet spot in Dana Point
This little spot is a gem. It's a quiet area of the condo complex. It's close to everything in Dana Point & the surrounding areas--easy access to major highways. And across the street from Salt Creek Beach Park... beautiful area to walk & see the sunrise/sunset...
The owner, Mike, is quick to respond and pleasant to work w/.
I've stayed at this unit before so it's become like my 'home away from home'. Has everything one needs including fast internet service (so working while I was there was not an issue), washing machine & dryer & all the comforts of home.
I highly recommend staying here if you are coming to the area..
Quiet corner of complex with very close ocean access
I spent almost two months of a "working vacation" at this property before relocating to the area. This unit is in a very quiet back part of the condo complex, and the parking space is right outside your door (super easy unloading/loading). I ended up loving this area so much that I relocated here to another unit in the front part of the complex which has a lot more noise. The unit had everything I needed for my stay, was close to stores/restaurants, and was within walking distance of restaurants/coffee shops. The ocean is across the street (just outside the complex), down stairs or the funicular. The beach area was perfect for a morning walk (there are a lot of trail options in Orange County). The owner provided all information ahead of time and was responsive throughout my stay. I would stay here again if/when I move out of the complex. Thank you, Mike!
Amazing condo with all you need right at the beach
My husband and I had a wonderful time at Mike’s condo, we were sad to leave :(
Mike was very easy to reach and responded immediately to any question we had. The condo is so spacious we couldn’t believe it and it has so much storage which made moving in and unpacking easy! The location is more than AMAZING! Its walking distance to the beach so going for a morning or evening walk or run was so wonderful! And its walking distance to all the restaurants in town which was one of the best parts!!
We will definetely be back!!
Great location and very attentive owner
Property location to beach park was spectacular. Condo is very good size for a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom. Complex is well maintained. Owner was very responsive to calls and text messages concerning aspects of the stay. Condo is 35 years old (built in 1982) and although furnished and appointed well, the age of the interior could use updating and refreshing. Overall a most pleasant and enjoyable experience.
Quaint and Cozy home
I spent several weeks at Mike's condo and it was awesome. It is a quaint, cozy & warm home in a quiet part of the complex...and the bonus--parking was within 'steps of the unit' (awesome!!). There was plenty of space (drawers, cabinets, closets) to spread out my stuff. The decor is 'simple elegance'... The kitchen had all the appliances, utensils, pots/pans, dishes, etc. that one would need... The internet had good service--I was able to work from the condo without any issues.. TV was a large screen TV-- perfect for viewing... The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was clean & had enough space on the counter (as well as drawers) to put things..
It was great to have a washer/dryer right there in the condo...
Across the street was Salt Creek Beach which had amazing sunsets... enjoyed those almost every night...
The pool & Jacuzzi are very nice as well...
If you're looking for a place to rest your 'bones' after a long day in LA or San Diego or at the beach or just around Dana Point or Laguna...look no further --- Mike's condo is the perfect spot.
