Golden Hour at the Dana Point Headlands can feel like therapy after a long day. On rare occasions like this picture, the ocean is glassy and emerald green, and there isn’t a single breath of wind. Take a stroll along the 2.5-mile loop that will take you from dirt trail to sandy beach. Start at the Dana Point Nature Interpretive Center located at the end of Scenic Drive, past The Chart House restaurant. Docents at the Interpretive Center are happy to share info about the latest whale sightings, as well as provide educational games for children interested in learning more about the Headlands’ indigenous plant and animal population.
Follow the trail past the Interpretive Center, through the gated entrance, and down the sandy path to the outermost point of the Headlands. Proceed through the gate at the top end of the trail and walk past several homes before arriving at the southern-most entrance and staircase to Strands Beach. Walk down the long path to the beach path, where at the far-end, you’ll ascend the long staircase (or take the funicular on weekends only) to the Strands parking lot. Travel north on the path at the top of the staircase, past the memorial, and past the Strands Residental entrance, and back up the same road to the Headland trail entrance.
Teamwork makes the dream work! I worked with this out-of-area client for several months to find him and his family their just-right, beach-close condo in Dana Point. Unfortunately, their visit to Dana Point to preview the listings I sent to them coincided with my annual family surf trip to Mexico. However, with a lot of pre-planning to line up my client with a smooth previewing experience, and tremendous teamwork from my talented team of real estate professionals, we were able to place a winning offer on this home. This gem of a condo in the coveted Lantern Village neighborhood in Dana Point boasts ocean views and a close proximity to restaurants, shopping and more. My pro-active client previewed this condo on his own, and with the help of my broker, Sam Smith, we were able to place a winning offer. I’m so happy for my clients and the new beach-close home that they will enjoy in their retirement for many years.
SOLD: This one bedroom condo in the Quail Run Neighborhood is less than a mile from the ocean and features modern upgrades including granite countertops and dark hardwood floors. Beach-close condos at this price are going quickly and require fast-action! Contact me for a personalized home-search and I hope to find you a gem like this!
