Orange County Condo Mania

Where to Go for a Great Beachfront Condo in Orange County

Living in an Orange County beachfront condo community is like being on a perpetual vacation. The cadence of waves slapping the shoreline provides a soothing soundtrack, and the infinite blue waters, the invigorating sea air and the feel of sand in between your toes makes every day feel like a holiday. Consider some more benefits of living in a condo on the beach in Orange County.

  • For starters, the view is picture perfect at the beach. The ocean vista is refreshing, relaxing and ever-changing. You'll see gorgeous sunsets and jaw-dropping night time skies. It’s a setting that calms the nerves and soothes the psyche.
  • The Orange County shore offers terrific weather with cool, crisp mornings, warm afternoons, and balmy evenings. In these surroundings, you can easily stay active and healthy. And there are many forms of exercise to choose from right outside your door (no more searching for parking!). You run, walk, swim or surf at the beach. If you go for social sports, try beach volleyball, beach football, group Frisbee or venture to one of the nearby golf courses. If you’re into extreme sports, OC beaches offer the excitement of kite surfing, jet skiing, and parasailing. In addition, many OC condo communities have great fitness and sports facilities onsite.
  • Most Orange County beachfront condo communities have beautifully landscaped grounds, resident parking and outstanding recreational amenities that further enhance the lifestyle experience. Plus, your friends (and acquaintances) will want to visit you when you have your get-together at one of the condo community patios that offer views of the beach.

Now that we've sold you on the benefits of living on the beach, we have to now say that the choices are limited in Orange County, especially considering how much coastline there is.  Much of the beachfront is public access (to that we say hooray!), but choices are limited even across the street. However, here are three condo communities that are definitely worth checking out:

Laguna Royale is a small, exclusive condo complex overlooking the beach in Laguna Beach. As for onsite amenities, Laguna Royale has an ocean-view pool, spa, gym, private storage room and underground parking structure. The condo has a 24-hour onsite security patrol and is pet-friendly.

Also in Laguna Beach is Laguna Lido, a luxury high-rise gated condominium community right above the sand on the west side of PCH. These choice oceanfront residences have stunning views of Catalina Island, the lights of Laguna and Palos Verde, plus a private elevator to the beach, and first-class amenities including a heated pool with lounging terrace, gym with top-of-the line equipment, Swedish steam room, game room, and 24/7 onsite security.

Located just across the street from Huntington Beach, Ocean Breeze Villas offer great value, a convenient location and assigned parking in a secured subterranean garage. Huntington Beach AKA “Surf City, USA,” is famous for its 9.5-mile long stretch of sandy beach, excellent year-round surfing, and beach culture. The gated community of Ocean Breeze gives you this as well as a sparkling pool, a wading pool and play area for kids, and a well-equipped fitness center. Units at Ocean Breeze Villas come in one- and two-story floor plans and feature open floor plans, fireplaces, spacious kitchens and ocean views from private balconies or patios.

If you don't mind being farther from the beach but still want that ocean view you'll have more great condo choices.  Check our our list of Orange County Ocean View Condos to find some good ones!
