Terranea Resort Is Open


After spending last weekend at the new Terranea Resort, I can say that it is fabulous and I recommend it to all, including Palos Verdes residents. The views are spectacular. We took several walks along the trails at the ocean’s edge. We walked down to the beach and sat on the rocks and listened to the surf “chatter” as it rolled back out over the stones. There is even a cave near the jetty. We laid on sand and took in the beauty of nature.


We ate at several of the restaurants. The Catalina Grill served an excellent dinner and we also enjoyed the Sunday brunch. We enjoyed snacks from the Terrenea Grill around the pool. My son loved the water slide and the very large pool more than accommodated my lap swimming. There are also two other pools – at the Spa and the Adult Pool. At Sea Beans, we enjoyed coffee, gelato, pastries and cupcakes. We did not get to eat at Mar’sel as it is only open for dinner and was booked both last weekend and this coming weekend!


We toured the Spa which looked fabulous but I did not have time to enjoy any treatments as we were in “explore” mode. We actually forgot that we were only 15 minutes from home. We have never spent so much time on our own coast. It has inspired us to explore our beautiful Peninsula! We plan to go back again, in the Fall for our anniversary and take advantage of the 25-50% discount (if you book online before June 28th for stays before December 30, 2009).

There are currently 32 casitas and villas for sale (50 have already sold) between $2,225,000 and $4,500,000. Owners, of course, have access to all the amenities of Terranea including resort facilities, housekeeping, etc. You can stay in your unit 60 days (casitas) or 90 days (villas) per calendar year and rent them out the rest of the year.
