3 Bedroom, 3 Full Bathroom Home Close To The Beach
- English, Spanish
I am a film and media professional who travels extensively and I have decided to share my home with you. I grew up in the Dana Point and Laguna Beach area and I'm proud to call this area my home. There is no other place like it.
Karla purchased this House in 1995
Why Karla chose Monarch Beach
If you don't want to spend the $$$$ in an expensive 4 or 5 star resort, my home is the place for you. I take pride in how I've furnished my home and my guests have always commented how it feels better than staying in a luxury resort. It is a perfect location to enjoy all the attractions in the area. The Ritz Carlton and Monarch Beach Resort are minutes away and offer world class spas and dining. The neighborhood is quiet and secure so expect to have a restful and relaxing stay.
What makes this House unique
I grew up here in Dana Point and I bought my home almost 20 years ago because I knew this was the place I always wanted to be. This will be my retirement home because I can't imagine anywhere else in the world I would rather be. You can't beat the weather in this area. The sunset walks down to the beach are what I cherish the most. The second bedroom upstairs has the best view in the house of the stunning sunsets and partial ocean view.
I have a seating area outside for smokers.
A small, house trained pet may be considered.

Cute Well Equipped House
My husband and I recently spent a month here during which time our adult daughter and partner joined us for a few days and our adult son with his wife and two little boys joined us later in the month for a week. The house is very cute and well kept. The kitchen is incredibly well provisioned in terms of pots, pans etc. The lay out is very good with two fully ensuited bedrooms including a spacious master suite and the main floor has a large den with trundle beds and a cross hall full bathroom as well.
There were, however, a couple of negatives. The description of the property leads one to think that the home is close to the beach. In fact, while you could, conceivably, walk to the beach, it would be a long walk and the walk home would be a brutal up hill climb. In addition, the description suggests that the home is "across the street" from the Monarch Beach Resort. Technically this is true in that the development in which the house is situated is across the street from the far end of the resort. However, the house is located some ways up the hill from the security gate leading to the street and the actual entrance to the resort is a ways down the street - a bit of a hike if you are going to use any of the facilities at the resort. Both of those factors were a disappointment to us. That said, both the beach and the resort were a very short drive from the house.
The only other point I would make is that during the winter months, the patio area, which is large and well furnished, gets very little sun during the day just because of the position of the house.
Finally, I have to say that Karla is amazingly responsive and friendly and we loved the fact that we had a weekly cleaning service.
GREAT HOME IN GREAT AREA!
Casa Regina is the place we have called "home away from home" every year for the past 3 years. Truly a resort like experience. I'm not surprised that Karla has numerous repeat tenants (like us) because of the quality and care that she has put into her home that other rentals in the area do not even compare to. Already looking forward to our next stay. 5 STARS ISN"T ENOUGH!!!
Gorgeous house in great location!
My wife and 2 kids have been renting in this area for the last 4 years and this has been the best location we have stayed at so far. The property was beautiful and well maintained. It was in a great location, minutes from the beach, golf course and close to shopping and dining. The house is spacious with 3 bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom, which is truly a luxury and not often found in most rentals. We highly recommend this home.
Our home away from home! A+++++++
We spent the Summer at this spectacular home and it was perfect for our needs. The house was clean, spacious, and a wonderful place to stay while our home was being remodeled. The beds were very comfortable with luxurious bedding and the large kitchen had everything we needed, which was very appreciated! The neighborhood is nice and quiet and located close to the beach and bike trails. My husband golfed at the Monarch Links, which is only a few minutes away, while I spent time at the St Regis spa. Karla was gracious and always available to help us. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!
Thank you again! It was a pleasure having you back!
Superb Home in Monarch Beach! More than 5 stars!
My husband and I stayed at Casa Regina with our teenage son and we enjoyed everything it had to offer. Our son went surfing every morning at Salt Creek beach and had a blast! He's already asking when we are coming back! The house is decorated beautifully and the kitchen was one of the best I've seen in a rental. There was even a Nespresso maker! Karla was always available if we needed anything and our vacation couldn't have been any better. Highly recommended!!!!
Thank you Danielle! It was a pleasure having you and your family. Looking forward to your next visit!
Fabulous Monarch Beach Home - Highly Recommend!
Our six-week stay here could not have been more enjoyable, and Karla was the perfect hostess. The home is spacious and airy, private and secure, within a prestigious, guard-gated beach community. The decor is lovely and unique, the outdoor garden is serene and the kitchen is perfectly appointed with everything you will need to cook for your family, even including a variety of spices! The two upstairs bedrooms are spacious and beds are very comfortable, and the den downstairs served as a nice optional third bedroom for my youngest son. The home was immaculate, and every detail has been thoughtfully addressed, including an abundance of high-quality linens and comfortable robes. The ocean views and watching the gorgeous sunsets from the upstairs bedroom was an added bonus each day! We walked several times to Salt Creek Beach and found a terrific organic popsicle stand (The Hive) along the way that my kids loved. Public library is within walking distance as well as two nice lunch spots. Karla was available any time we had a question. Very comfortably accommodated our family of four and we highly recommend Casa Regina to anyone for a vacation or staycation!
