One of the best locations that is across the street from the Waldorf Astoria resort hotel is the Tennis Villas gated community.  This is one of my favorite communities as it offers beautiful Mediterranean style townhouses that typically have nice open floor plans and nice finishes to them.  One of the biggest trends in this community is to buy homes in this community and then do short term rentals since the rental industry has boomed recently.  That's why when you look at what is available in the Tennis Villas you will see a lot of rental properties that are offering these short term rental opportunities.  The best time to rent out these homes is during the high season summer months which consists of June, July and August.  During these months a lot of

This was a great year for the luxury real estate market in Dana Point as two of the top three highest sales this year took place in the ocean front community of Monarch Bay.  It seems like every year the highest sales tend to be in the newer Strand at Headlands community which offers some amazing homes including the third highest sale this year.  However, the Monarch Bay community has really gone through a wonderful transformation that first started when the homes switch from being located on leased land to where you own your own land.  Since then we have seen a higher interest in this community and even the front gated entrance is seeing a major face lift as well.

Dana Point has a wide variety of architectural style homes with the large majority of homes built in the Mediterranean, Spanish, Traditional with some Contemporary style homes.  One of the unique architectural styles that we are starting to see is the Hamptons style homes. These homes tend to be really grand with an east coast vibe to it with gray siding, white trim around the windows and doors with accent round windows above the French doors.  If you can picture this than this is the essence of a Hamptons style which is also pictured below.

One of the best places to find these homes is in the newer gated community in Dana Point known as "The Strand at Headlands" which located on the beach front.  A perfect example of this is a home located in this

We get a lot of clients moving here from a big city where they are used to being able to walk to restaurants, cafe's and grocery stores within a short radius of their home.  Southern California is really spread out and the vase majority of homes and neighborhoods are not within walking distance to any neighboring business's.  This is true for most communities in Dana Point as well with a few exceptions.  One of these executions are the neighborhoods located near the intersection of Golden Lantern and Camino Del Avion which is a major hub for a local of local business's located here.  One of these communities located near these cross streets in the Silvertide community.  One of the reasons I love this community is that even though is located very close to

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

Every December we will look back at what has sold in the city of Dana Point and every. year we are not surprised to learn that some of the most expensive homes were sold in the Strand at Headlands community.  In fact, 2 of the top 3 highest sold properties this year were sold at the Strand but for far less than 2018 which topped over $23 million.  This year the top 3 properties range between $8 and $14 dollars which is far less than the previous year.  This does not negate that this was a very busy year with over 500 homes sold with a very strong economy helping the cause.  Here is a quick run down of the top 3 sales.
