The Monarch Bay Terrace community is a great place to find ocean view homes in the Dana Point area.  This is a great area filled with a combination of older and newer homes that overlook the ocean.  The large majority of homes in this area were built in the early 1970's and are often single level homes.  Not all homes in this area have ocean views as the lower the priced homes often have small city light or canyon views.  Price point for non-view properties currently starts at just under $1.4 million with ocean view homes starting at around $1.6 million.

The Dana Point harbor is a beautiful area in the Lantern Village area of Dana Point.  There are several communities that overlook the harbor and offer amazing views.  These condos are typically some of the most expensive units on the market as they offer both ocean, harbor and sunset views.  For those who are new to Dana Point it's worth driving around and seeing the different vantage points and the views that they offer.

We first recommend going to the Green Lantern street in Dana Point.  This is by far the best view of the harbor and that is where you will find the Dana Point chart house restaurant.  Along this street are residential homes and condos located on only one side of the street.  On the other side of the street is a steep cliff that
