The Portofino condo building is located near the Del Prado Lantern District in Dana Point, California between 24421 and 24435 Santa Clara Avenue.  This is a small condo complex of 7 luxury townhouses that sit on the ocean side of Pacific Coast Hwy and one block to the bluff front with tremendous views of the Dana Point Harbor as pictured below.  The condos were originally built in 1991 in the Mediterranean style with two levels of living space.  The condos here are more like a luxury townhouse with attached 2 car garages and a secure gated entrance.  Units here don't have views of the ocean but offer a very unique location that is within walking distance to the newly renovated Lantern District with great shopping and restaurants.
