Monarch Beach has many condo complex's that offer affordable options when looking in this very expensive area of Dana Point. One of my all time favorite condo complex's in Monarch Beach is the "Tennis Villas." These are luxury condos located on one single level. Condos located on the lower level will have a nice patio area while upstairs units have a generous size view deck. The last condo I sold in this complex had this view of the St. Regis hotel as pictured below. My client loved the trickling sound of the fountain out front and used the 5 star amenities at the hotel including the day spa, restaurants and walking paths to the beach! The community is gated with a manual control and features a nice community pool for residents to use. Many of the condos in this complex have either a small ocean or golf course view. Prices currently range from $678,000 to $895,000 for a 2 bedroom condo with condo sales in the last year ranging from $521,000 to $769,000. Directly below the complex is a tennis club so if you enjoy outdoor sports you will love living here. This is considered a prime location near everything in Monarch Beach.
Located directly to the north and adjacent to the St Regis is the Monarch Hills condos. These are the most affordable condos in the Monarch Beach area and currently start at $310,000 and go as high as $409,000 for a 2 bedroom condo. The community offers a nice association pool, gym and a clubhouse with covered carport parking. The thing I really like about this complex besides the great prices is the quick access you have to the beach. There are several paths that connect you to walking trails that go underneath the Pacific Coast Highway and end up right on the beach. For the close proximity to the ocean and the low prices it's really hard to beat the Monarch Hills condo community. These are often bought by investors who then turn around and rent them long term or do seasonal rentals.
Some of the most expensive condos can be found on the St Regis Hotel grounds. Since Monarch Beach is the most expensive area in Dana Point it's only fitting that you can find high-end condos as well. The condos are normally well above the $2 million dollar mark and have direct services associated with the hotel. Below is a picture of the two story town homes at the St Regis. You will notice they are all located on the right side of the street with the ocean as the backdrop. On the back side of the condos is the Monarch Beach golf course so the town homes will have nice golf course views with select condos offering views of the ocean as well.
We have compiled a list of the current available condos for sale in the Monarch Beach area of Dana Point below. Please note there are no current condos for sale in the Niguel Beach Terrace community in Monarch Beach. This is another great condo community located across the street from the oceanfront community called "The Strand." Inventory has been really low there but expect to have condos for sale starting in the mid $500,000 range with select condos offering ocean views. The Niguel Beach Terrace community is the closest community to the beach and is a great investment due to all the new construction currently taking place at the Strand. We know these communities very well so lease contact us with any questions about these communities and/or condos for sale.
