  SOLD by JILL MURTY Ocean View Condo in Dana Point  What a terrific ocean view condo property!  Ocean view from multiple areas in this neat condo, walking distance for most people to Dana Point Harbor, shops, restaurants and the beach.  This should have been a smooth transaction, but the buyer side was really pathetic.  We had cause to throw them out of the transaction on multiple occasions, but the nice seller decided to stick it out to the end.  The buyer's agent paid the seller's carrying costs for the 30+ days they were late closing.When I informed the seller that escrow was closed, her response was "Yea!!!!! Thanks for all the pain you endured with this."  This one was a heck of a ride.  That's for sure.

Home Prices in Dana Point California for March 2017If you notice on the chart, the home prices in Dana Point, California made a turn upward this month. Though prices are going up, there still are not a whole lot of  listings currently available in Dana Point.

 The City Council will hold a joint workshop with the Planning Commission to discuss parking policies for the city and the Lantern District of Dana Point.In January, members of the public spoke in regards to concerns they had about commercial area customers and parking into residential neighborhoods from the Lantern District. There were also concerns raised by Council members regarding Doheny Village updates.Now, there will be discussions to find a solution. We love our Dana Point Lantern District, but do not want our residents to be effected by visitors and tourists shopping and dining in the area.

DANA POINT, CA A MUST GO TO PLACE IN SOUTHERN CA The Weather in Dana Point is so amazing year round. Sunny and beautiful, beaches, harbor life. We walk the harbor on weekday walks, evening walks and Sunday coffee and walks. You will thoroughly enjoy staying at a local hotel and 100 yards from the harbor water. Dana Point Marina Inn, excellent prices, but not fancy.                 Now, before I take you into the median top home price for the month and you already know my temperatures here with beautiful sunshine. Let me tell you  to grab a cup of coffee or lunch at Coffee Importers. It is on the harbor and it is the place to go to.

Monarch Beach is a small, wealthy gated community in Orange County, California Monarch Beach is close to the city-boundary between Dana Point and Laguna Niguel, which are both included in Orange County's "Beach Cities" area (although Laguna Niguel does not have any coastline). It consists of some residences, but is also a tourist attraction for rich and, occasionally, famous travelers. The name "Monarch Beach" is often referenced as the name of the city, in place of Dana Point, to make the area sound more appealing to such travelers. This intentional misnomer is the source of many complaints among most other Dana Point locals. Monarch Beach, Dana Point, Monarch Beach is named after its most prominent geological feature "Monarch Bay" aptly named as its rolling hills of Sagebrush and Manz...

March 5-6, 12-13 2016Dana Point Festival Of Whales It's spring time and the California gray whales are heading back north. They spend each winter basking in the warm waters off Baja, Mexico. Now the whales and their calves will swim past Southern California on their way back home for the summer months.Each year, Dana Point celebrates this passing with the Festival of Whales. For 2016, the two weekends are March 5-6 and March 12-13. There are whale themed events for all ages, with a concert, craft show and art shows. Of course you can also take one of many charters to head out and see the whales up close, although you can see the spouts with your naked eye or perhaps a set of binoculars.For more information, See their website: Festival of Whales
