Located in the Lantern Bay Villas, a resort-style gated community with an upscale vibe and amenities. Easily walk to Dana Point Harbor, Doheny State Beach, Lantern Bay Park, Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort, fine restaurants, and local shopping. Check out the 3-D virtual tour of the entire interior or the aerial video of this beautiful home.
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.
Congratulations to the happy new owners of this very cool, single-level, beach-close, mid-century modern style home with peek ocean views located in the Shorecliffs neighborhood in San Clemente North. I couldn’t be happier for the new owners! They’ve dreamed of raising their young family near the beach, and now they can slide into their flipflops and WALK to Poche Beach through a private beach access that safely traverses under Pacific Coast Highway and ends on the sand with beach volleyball courts and a community clubhouse. A $29 HOA fee gives them access to the Shorecliffs Beach Club- an iconic building certain to be the center of this family’s celebrations for years to come.
Prices in this area are typically lower then comparable properties in South San Clemente. And this neighborhood is hot right now- we took this home off the market only 18 days after listing. Fantastic homes with ocean views are still available in this neighborhood. Contact me to schedule a personalized tour.
My friend’s son is flying a drone and helping out with some aerial shots. Here’s a short clip:
