Coronado real estate is some of the most coveted in California. The primary reason is that the Coronado peninsula is so amazingly beautiful in all seasons, and that its homes are comparatively reasonable for all the luxury the buyer ends up with.
Those who consider buying Coronado real estate are a unique bunch. Prioritizing luxury and taste over pedestrian concerns, they value privacy, intimacy, and one of the best beach communities in the country and are willing to pay for it. Coronado homes tend to leave nothing to be desired. Steam showers, pool houses, multiple stories, even elevators are common in this small community of just over 20,000 residents. the “town” of Coronado was initially a resort and boasted one of the nicest and most luxurious hotels in the United States. Hotel del Coronado is still in existence and is widely regarded as an amazing resort hotel.
The town’s proximity to downtown San Diego means that you sacrifice nothing by buying a home here; San Diego boasts some incredible shopping, eating, nightlife, and leisure activities. Among the perks of living in Coronado is the abundance of things to do right outside your door. Golfing, outdoor sports such as hiking and hang-gliding, water sports such as parasailing and surfing are all well within reach of the residents of Coronado.

San Diego and Coronado are well-regarded for the shopping and eating as well, with the area’s proximity to the Mexican border meaning that delicious authentic restaurants are scattered throughout the area. Inspiring chefs also take the Mexican influence and put a fresh, modern, upscale spin on it in several establishments in Coronado.
California is known for its great climate, but only after living here and comparing it to other places in the nation does one really appreciate it. Temperatures hover near 70 degrees for most of the year, and the air is rarely humid. Even during a heat wave, the air is not sticky and uncomfortable. While air conditioning is rarely required statewide, Coronado homes tend to have all the amenities including air conditioning. Access to Coronado from San Diego is through a beautiful stretch of road known to locals as “the strand.” This road links the peninsula with the mainland of California and is surrounded by ocean, making it picturesque and amazing at all times of day. Beaches in the area are clean, sandy and with crystal-clear water, great for surfing, sunbathing, body surfing or snorkeling.
If you get tired of San Diego—though I doubt you could—the area is within an hour or two’s drive from several great destinations. Disneyland, LegoLand, the gorgeous resorts of Orange County, the Baja Peninsula, and all the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles and Hollywood are a quick drive away. There is literally no end to the activities available to those living so close to so much activity. Some of the most coveted vacation spots in the world are within a small radius of the Coronado peninsula. Imagine living right in the center of it all, in a luxurious house with all the amenities, for a comparatively reasonable price. You owe it to yourself to see if a home in the Coronado area is right for you.
Living in California is not for everyone, just for those that value community and social consciousness, the beauty of a beach in your backyard, some of the most storied sports franchises in the country, and the ability to live life to the fullest. Give yourself a chance to live this lifestyle, it may change your life.
