STRANDS BEACH DANA POINT (California Beach Retreat - Near Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel, St. Regis at Monarch Beach and Laguna Beach
As you pull off of Pacific Coast Highway on to our palm lined street, you have the ocean to the right and our condominium complex, Niguel Beach Terrace, on the left. At this point you are 'steps' away from the Strands Beach at Salt Creek Beach Park.
This area of Dana Point with it prominent coastal bluffs, is also known as The Headlands and is part of what is referred to as the 'Gold Coast' or 'California Riviera'. With Laguna Beach to the north and San Clemente to the south, our California Beach Retreat is the ideal location for your Southern CA visit. You are central to all of Southern California! 60 miles from Los Angeles International Airport and 60 miles from Sea World in San Diego.
Sixty-eight miles to Universal Studios Hollywood, 33 miles to Disneyland Resort, 25 miles to John Wayne Airport, 5 miles to Laguna Beach, 5 miles to Mission San Juan Capistrano, 80 miles to Tijuana Mexico!
The Strands Beach is actually the Southern portion of the Salt Creek Beach Park. It is a highly regarded surfing beach that consistently rates an A+ in water quality. It is common to see dolphins and sea lions while visiting the beach. This is the same beach that guests from the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel and The St. Regis at Monarch Beach use.
OUR BEACH HOME
First let me say this, 'We Love this Place!' Every time we visit we feel as though we are away on a vacation. That being said, we set out to transform this place into our our ultimate Beach Home. We were fortunate to have a professional designer in the family to assist us. When not on assignment in the Middle East or other parts of the world designing professional environments or private estates, we were able to get this pro to guide us through an extensive renovation of our Beach House. The end result is a warm, comfortable feel where 'coastal elements' abound.
