The Dana Bluffs community is a great place to find an ocean view rental condo near the beach in Dana Point, California.  On average, we see around 4 to 5 rental listings come on the market each year which are typically a three bedroom condo that are often between 1,500 to 1,850 square feet.  For the year 2021, we have seen 5 rental listings that have ranged from $3,980 to $6,000 a month with the range depending on the view and condition on the unit.  For the most part these are 12 month leases to start with some shorter term rentals as well.  Landlords in this complex typically will ask for the first months rent, security deposit and a credit check fee.  Some of the listings that have come on the market this year have consideration for those with pets as

It's no surprise that this years most expensive homes sold in Dana Point all sold in the gated beach front community of The Strand at Headlands.  The highest sale took place at 39 Strand Beach which featured a total of 6 bedrooms and sold for $23,500,000 after being on the market for a total of 128 days.  The home was located on the ocean front with unobstructed ocean views.  The home had 3 levels of living space with a stunning primary bedroom located on the upper level with some of the best views we have seen in Dana Point.  The downstairs part of the home was all about entertaining with an open air room complete with  stunning pool that overlooked with crashing waves.

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

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

The Cape Cove community arguably has one of the better locations in Dana Point for a gated community located near the beach.  Finding a rental property here makes a lot of sense since you have the security of being located behind a private gate as well as a location that is within walking distance down to Strands Beach.  What I really love about this community is the adorable Cape Cod style architecture that can be found here.  Every time I go into this community I feel like I've gone back to the East Coast with white picket fences, white shutters and beautiful landscaping.   There are currently some really nice rental homes available for lease in Cape Cove that range from $6,000 to $9,000 a month.  The first property at $6,000 a month is a two bedroom,

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

Dana Point real estate prices have always commanded a premium in price due to being a beach town and located next to the Dana Point Harbor.  Gated communities have always been considered an extra luxury that is reserved for some of the most expensive homes.  There are still some really great values for homes and condos located inside a gated community.  The large majority of these are located in the upscale Monarch Beach area that is just south of the city of Laguna Berach.  There is where the upscale Ritz Carlton and Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort hotels are located as well as some of the most desirable beach front communities like the Strand at Headlands, Ritz Cove, Niguel Shores and Monarch Bay.

Some of the best values located inside a gated

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

One of the best places to find some of the most affordable rentals in the Dana Point area is at the Harbor Creek community.  In fact, if you are looking for a long term lease for under $2,000 this is a really great place to look.  Of course, there are more expensive rentals in this community but currently one bedroom condos currently start at $1,995 a month.  This is approximately a 650 square foot condo that features nice vaulted ceilings so it gives the illusion of having more space.  2 bedroom units are typically more expensive and currently start at $3,000 and $3,150 a month.  These condos are slightly larger and range from 870 to 913 square feet.  The best part about renting a home here is that the landlord typically pays for the association fees

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
