Have you ever taken a vacation and stayed at home that you could imagine living in year around. Believe it or not, this happens a lot to buyers looking for that perfect vacation property. For some it may be some exotic location, to others a home near a ski resort while others prefer the year around warm weather of Southern California. Dana Point offers the best of both worlds with one of the best climates in North America where it never gets too cold and never too hot. The seaside town is known for it's spectacular harbor with luxury yachts and outdoor water activities. These are some of the best places to look for your ideal vacation home.
First, it's hard to start any conversation about a year around vacation property without mentioning the homes located on the grounds of the Monarch Beach Resort which was previously the St. Regis Hotel. The Sea Villas at St Regis homes are what you would expect, upscale luxury townhouses located near the resort with all of the amenities as if you were staying at the hotel including the exclusive Monarch Bay Beach Club. The location is also within steps to the Monarch Beach golf links which offers world class golfing which overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Many of these homes offer stunning golf course views and truly makes you feel like you are on vacation every single day.
One of the most affordable options is the Niguel Beach Terrace condo complex. Arguably one of the best values in Dana Point due to it's prime location that is just steps down to the beach. It's not uncommon to find condos in some of the lowest price points for Dana Point with nice amenities that include a community pool, spa and clubhouse. Some condos located here will offer also some ocean views too but it's all about the location. It's a short walk down to downtown Lantern Village district filled with great restaurants and retail stores with Strands Beach location just minutes away. If you are looking for a vacation condo that can be rented out while you are not there then Niguel Beach Terrace condos come highly recommend.
