2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Lower Level Condo Within Walking Distance To The Beach
We purchased this property after walking and exploring all that the area offers. We fell in love with the long stretches of beaches nearby, accessibility to Dana Point and the Harbor, and are happy to share this unique location with those from outside the area.
Corinne purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Corinne chose Monarch Beach
We shopped in the region for quite some time having grown up in the area, and found this particular unit in the complex to be exceptional. It's gardens are like none other in the Niguel Beach Terrace complex because the unit looks out into neighboring greenbelt and it's location is next to one of the most prestigious developments in south Orange County, The Strand.
What makes this Condo unique
The Strands Beach & Garden Retreat is a walker's paradise! We fell in love with the area during our almost daily walks throughout Dana Point Harbor, the Headlands, and the many stairways and beaches of the Strand and Salt Creek beaches. The ocean wildlife is abundant and on any given day you are likely to witness dolphins and pelicans or the sweet sounds of the harbor seals barking.

Dana Point Rememberd
Carrey was attentive to our every need. Could not have been nicer. The location was amazing. It was a perfect escape for us.
Terry, we are very happy you enjoyed our place so much and happy you were able to escape the heat of the desert. Wishing you and your wife well!
Quality and Comfort
This was our best stay at Strand so far and this lovely condo played a big part of it. Communication before during and after was prompt and friendly. Every need was provided for and everything from kitchen ware to furniture and linens were of high quality, in good taste and beautifully appointed. We really felt comfortable, as if we were in a home away from home. There was even a welcome surprise to greet us upon arrival. Will definitely love go back.
Lucy, we were so happy to have you and your family. We are pleased to hear you had such a wonderful time and we hope you will stay with us again!
Perfect Beach Getaway
This apartment is so perfect and super comfortable. Some of my favorite things were the master shower and bed that offered such amazing relaxation. The apartment faces the back path and is filled with lush tropical plants that offer privacy and visually pleasing views. You can take your daily walks along strands, enjoying sunsets and ocean views. You can also get a great work out hiking along the beach and the headlands. The owners are warm and accomodating people. They are responsive and absolutely care about your experience. Each time we have stayed they left a beautiful goodie basket for us, they answered our texts and calls in a timely fashion and made us feel right at home. Everything you need is in walking distance. We highly reccommend this property.
We were so happy to have you stay at our place and enjoy all that the surrounding area has to offer. We love to hear you explored the many walking paths and the nearby beaches. We were happy to have you return during the summer as well, and welcome you back any time!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Corrine and Cary's condo. They were great hosts and the updated condo was very clean and well equipped. We like to cook and found the kitchen to be very well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals. There was even a welcome gift from the owners to greet us. We especially enjoyed the location of the condo, the sunny and bright patios and lawn area in a quiet area of the complex.. We hope to return again.
We are happy you enjoyed our place and the location--it is so close to everything, whether you are looking for fine restaurants or wonderful hikes or walks to the beach.
Great vacation condo
What's notable about this condo is that it's in a quiet location in the complex. It's on the backside of the building from the parking lot, and as such, you don't have lights or noise from the cars, and few people walking near it. Very garden-y with nice grassy area nearby. It's an enjoyable walk to restaurants in Dana Point, closer to that direction than other units in the complex. Corinne was a very thoughtful host, with a goodie basket and gift for my daughter, which she loved, on arrival. Would love to stay here sometime again!
Hello James, we were so happy to have you and your family stay in our condo. Glad to hear you enjoyed the area as much as we do and that you also found the unit to be in a quiet location. We hope to have you return!
Fantastic vacation rental
Our stay at Strands Beach was everything we had hoped for and more. Corinne made us feel welcomed from the moment we arrived with a special gift basket and personal note. The condo was exceptionally clean, well equipped and comfortable. We felt like we were in a garden retreat with the quiet location and yet had the convenience of being within walking distance to the beach and local restaurants. We definitely hope to return.
Within a 3-minute walk to Coastal Kitchen, Chart House, Craft House, and Jacks, Cannon's restaurants with spectacular views overlooking the Dana Point Harbor. Also a quick walk to Starbuck's and J.J. Beans coffee shops. Close to live music and entertainment at StillWater Spirits and Sounds, Hennessey's Tavern and Luxe Restaurant and Bar. The list goes on and on.
