What fond memories of monarch beach are with me this morning. Now that the holidays have come and gone. The location is so beautiful. How wonderful to be so close to the Pacific. While swimming, we encountered three dolphins playing in the water right on the beach with us! The condo is the perfect size and the decor is welcoming. It was such an easy drive to Disneyland and other tourist attractions. But we found ourselves just wanting to be there, at Monarch Beach. Thank you so much for a memory that will last a lifetime for my whole family. I am so blessed to have found such a wonderful place! Again, Dee, the transaction was easy and working with you was a pleasure! I missed it the moment we drove away. The time we spent there will always be in my heart! Forever in your debt,......Cherise, Nov,2008

'An ideal location for a southern California family holiday, mid way between LA and San Diego with easy access to both. With a five minute walk to the beach and all of its activities, combined with other amenities nearby we will certainly consider returning. The condo was clean and well equiped for a highly enjoyable vacation. The views of the sun setting over the ocean were spectacular.' - Doug M., Edmonton, Al, 11/15/2008

We had a great time at your place. The weather was great and the condo was close to everything. Thanks again. Judith Erwied' - Judith E.04/18/2008

Very roomy condo with nice pool and hot tub . Just a few miles from other great beaches. We enjoyed our stay ! Thank you ! Linda Bain-Noland and Family from Camby, Indiana..Spring Break 2008 ' - Linda B., Camby, In, 04/03/2008

'We really did enjoy ourselves - the condo was just right for us. We enjoyed the privateness of the condo. It was like a little nitch from the rest of the southern-California chaos.' - Mike 07/13/2007

'My family and I loved our stay at your beautiful condo. It had everything we needed and was so clean and inviting when we arrived. The beach was absolutely beautiful and so private - my kids loved it! We would definitely consider staying at your condo the next time we're in California. Thank you so much for the wonderful week we had at your lovely condo. Jerilyn Millard and Family ' - Jerilyn M., Layton, Ut,

'The unit was great. It was spotless and just as advertised. I would rent this unit again.' - Gary O., Alpharetta, GA,

'It was wounderful vacation. Very confortable. Beautiful location and views. Quiet. What I like the best was the patio off master bedroom and watch the beautiful ocean sunset. We enjoyed the stay here and hope to have the opportunity to stay again. We enjoyed having a TV in the master bedroom and the high speed internet'. Tammy B.,

'Nice condo with everything you need to enjoy the beach and surrounding area. Perfect home away from home well equipped with comfortable beds. Dana Point is fabulous and close to Disney, Legoland, Hollywood, San Diego Zoo and more! Only one down side....too short a visit! We would recommend this area and condo to anyone visiting the area! The Alvarado Family' - Anita A., Bryant, AR, 06/19/2010 (edit)

'We had a fabulous stay! The beach was perfect and so was the condo. Very roomy, clean, and quiet. We also loved the pool and hot tub. The condo was centrally located between Universal Studios and Sea World. Close to Disneyland too. Thanks, we had a great vacation!' - Suzanne A., Mapleton, UT, 06/05/2010 (edit)

'We have stayed at many different places in Southern California over the years, and Dee's condo is the best of the bunch. The public space and beach access just across the road are superb. Our 4 children would have been happy to just stay close by and enjoy the beautiful beach and pool, but we did take some day trips to enjoy other Orange County gems, like Laguna which is very close. The condo is very well equipped and comfortable, my favorite spot was the patio off the master bedroom with a view of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island in the distance. It seems to me that this neighborhood is a well kept secret - Dee's condo makes it available for those of us who are not lucky enough to be Orange County residents year round. Many thanks for the wonderful memories, we hope to be back soon! April 2010 ' - Sarah P., Elm Grove, WI, 04/10/2010 (edit)

'We had a wonderful stay at your Condo. If we decide in the future to have another family reunion in California I certainly will consider your Condos. ' - Robert H., QUEENSLAND ,AU, 02/21/2010 (edit)

'We had a great time!!! We really enjoyed your place, the beach and all the other fun places nearby. We may be back next year, if you place is available. Have a nice day! ' - Paul R., Idaho Falls, ID, 01/04/2010 (edit)

About Dee Kalaus

We are married with two boys both in college and one in the Army Reserve. I am in the Health care field and my husband is in the Education business. We both work for the State School District. We work hard but love what we do. We both love to travel, the beach is our favor. We enjoy hiking, walking, ride bikes, swimming, dancing, going to the gym. We also like to eat and try new foods. My husband loves to eat so we try to eat foods that taste good but have less calories. We love charing our condo with friends, guest that also love the beach,and family friendly neighborhood.

Dee Kalaus purchased this condo in 2004

Why Dee Kalaus chose Dana Point

We decided to buy a beach condo in Dana Point so one day we move in the area in enjoy our retirement at the beach full time. Well, with the economy the way it is we decided to wait and keep using it in our time off and weekends alone or with our family.

What makes this condo unique

We love our condo and that is why we have decided to share our condo with our friends and guests. The area is relaxing, the beach is one of the best in California. We walked to the Ritz Carlton for a snack or tea for two. It is nice to hear our guests and friends say how much they love the condo and the area as much as we do. We have several guest returning each year and they feel like part of the family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Dee, we had a very good time! The condo was wonderful, and I think the pool was the best part!

Maybe we'll be back again,

Niguel Beach Terrace 3br Monarch Beach

  • 5 of 5

One of the BEST vacation condos we have stayed in for 30 days. Dee was excellent to work with and the condo was very well equipped and clean. The funicular (elevator) across the street to the beach only operates on weekends, after summer is over. This kept us from enjoying Strands Beach, since there are hundreds of stairs to walk down AND carry your beach equip. up. Very close to Baby Beach and LOTS of good restaurants. Great pool and spa. We will definitely stay here again next year.

Excellent Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo during May and loved every minute of it. It is literally right across the street from the entrance to Strands Beach, is very quiet, and had everything I could ever want or need while I was there. Everything in the unit worked perfectly. The ocean breezes blow right through the unit creating a beautiful cool retreat. The best part was the wonderful patio off the master bedroom that had a direct view of the sunset over the ocean. I would stay here over and over again!
