The summer months are almost upon us and we are starting to see more and more clients looking for vacation rental properties in the Dana Point area.  For the most part, these short term rental properties come furnished but that is not always the case.  Some properties are more Furnished than others and really depends on the owner of the property and how much they feel like they need and want to furnish the property.  One thing we look for when looking for vacation rental properties is finding a listing that comes fully furnished.  This was we know that the home is equipped to handle all of the needs that a client renting a home for a month or more may request.

During the summer months many of the beach properties in the Dana Point area does see an

The Strand at Headlands community has had a record year in 2021 with some of the most expensive homes being sold in all of Dana Point.  With the shrinking number of listings on the market at any given time we are starting to see more buyers explore the idea of buying a piece of land and building their own custom home to their liking.  One of the good things about many of the Strand listings is that the owners of these lots have taken the time to develop architectural plans for their specific piece of land which in turn can be sent to the design review board and the city planning department for review and approval.  Typically the further the plans go in the process the easier it is to sell a lot here since approval times for both the design review board

A lot of sales have transpired for the 2021 sales year in the Strand at Headlands with a record number of transactions taking place.  So far in 2021 we have seen a total of 16 home sales ranging from $9,009,000 to $23,500,000.  There is a wide range in pricing found here since there are two different neighborhoods located here.  The two communities consist of North and South Strand which each have their own guard gated entrance with a tunnel used for golf carts that connect the two areas together.  The least expensive homes can be found in the South Strand area which is located high on a hill that overlooks the Pacific Ocean.  Many of the these homes will have wonderful panoramic views, especially for those located on the upper streets.  The more

Dana Point has a limited number of historic properties that are located all throughout the city limits with a high concentration in the downtown area called the Lantern District.  For the most part many of these homes will not offer any kind of a view but there a few select historic properties that will offer nice ocean views.  Depending on your budget there are a couple great places to start your search.  First, on the high end two of the best places to look would be on either the street Beach Road or along the cliffside overlooking the Dana Point Harbor on Santa Clara Avenue.  

Beach Road is a 24 hour guard gated community that features homes that located directly on the sand.  For anywhere in Orange County this is very hard to find and this

One of my favorite condo communities in Dana Point is the Tennis Villas neighborhood.  One of the main reasons why I like this area as it has a little bit of everything.  First, if you are looking for a beach and golf course close community then Tennis Villas is hard to beat.  It sits next to the Monarch Beach golf links so if you are an avid golfer you are going to love this location.  The golf links do take a separate membership and they are not affiliated with the Tennis Villas but are within walking distance to the golf links clubhouse which is really convenient. Second, it's all about the views at the Tennis Villas which range from panoramic golf course views as pictured below to some ocean views as well.  Finally, it doesn't hurt being located

The year 2020 is in the review mirror now and we are all looking optimistically for the year 2021.  The Dana Point real estate market was very active in the last spring, summer and winter months as low inventory and reduced mortgage interest rates really drove the demand for buyers looking to make a purchase.  So far in January 2021 the record activity continues as homes are not staying on the market for very long if they are priced correctly.  There are many buyers in the market right now that are looking for new construction homes that will be built and completed this year in 2021.   These are typically individual property owners selling homes as spec homes and not homes located in a brand new community.

With this being said, the best community to

One of my favorite gated neighborhoods in Dana Point is the Regatta tract.  One of the reasons why this is such a great community is the prime Monarch Beach location that is just minutes to the bluff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and the Dana Point Harbor and a short driving distance to the beach.  If you are lucky enough to find a property that has an ocean view then that is a big selling point.  Over the last several years there has been several rentals that have come on the market each year.  On average, there are 6 to 10 rentals that come up for lease that have a wide variety of a range.  In 2020, we have seen rentals from $3,200 for a three bedroom, two bath home to $6,000 a month for a newly renovated ocean view home.  For the most part these are

One of our most requested communities for finding rentals in the Dana Point area is the Ritz Pointe community.  There are a number of reasons why so many are drawn to the community that sits adjacent to the Monarch Beach Resort which was formerly the St. Regis Hotel.  First, the community is guard gated which means there is a full time attendant there 24 hours a day.  In fact, there are actually 2 gates that go into this community which makes it's very convenient.  A lot of people ask us why there is 2 gates for a community that offers affordable condos for sale and for lease and there is a great reason why.  

When these condos were first built they were put next to larger single family home neighborhoods that are much more expensive with some

The lantern village area is well known for having great single family homes that can overlook the Pacific Ocean.  This area is also a great place to find residential condos that are within walking distance to the Dana Point Harbor with some ocean and harbor views.  For those looking for a large view then look for the condos located on Green Lantern street.  The street has arguably the best views in Dana Point with jaw dropping views of the Dana Point Harbor and coastline.  The cliffside that goes up to Green Lantern street is pretty steep but the views are really great from this elevated level.  

One of the most popular condo communities in the Lantern Bay Villas.  This is a great place to find an ocean view condo in a well organized gated community

Dana Point has a wide range of residential homes and condos on the market at any given time.  One of the best features in a home to give the feeling of extra space is having cathedral ceilings.  Having tall ceilings is one of the best thing you can find in a home since it doesn't take up extra space and really gives the illusion of having a bigger place than what you have without paying for the extra square footage.  The Ritz Cove community is a perfect example of this as many of the homes that were built here do feature cathedral ceilings and really make the homes feel like mini-estate homes.  Of course, these homes are often price above the five million dollar range and this is what you expect in a home in this price point.  Another great place to look
