The Coastal Stay: Southern California’s Terranea Resort

Located at what appears to be the edge of the earth, the Terranea Resort is a stunning and memorable place to stay. This southern California resort is  located in Rancho Paolos Verdes and is a perfect escape for a few days away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. You won’t want to leave this piece of heaven! Perfect for romantic getaways or family gatherings this resort has hotel rooms, casitas and villas. Fire pits spot the resort where guests can enjoy making S’mores. The view is seriously gorgeous!!! Terranea is perfectly situated for whale and dolphin watching. Imagine cozying up at the fireplace with a glass of Californian wine and admiring the view. Sigh.


This 102 private acre property includes natural discovery trails, coves and fascinating tide pools that can be explored. As well as, a 9-hole par 3 oceanfront golf course, and a massive indoor/outdoor spa. There restaurants are great too! From casual to fine dining you won’t want to leave!
