Looking for a resort destination that includes everything within its boundaries? Southern California's Terranea gives you exactly that. Each day allows for new experiences with enough to keep even the busiest of families from boredom.
Magnificently poised along one of Southern California’s most scenic and coveted coastlines, Terranea (ter-a-NAY-a) is set on the spectacular Palos Verdes Peninsula, a stunning and irreplaceable site with unobstructed views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. Strategically located, no other coastal California resort combines such ease of access with the secluded ambiance of a private estate and truly breathtaking vistas.
As our family soaked in the jacuzzi perched along the cliffs, we enjoyed a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean just as the dolphins made their daily migration into a nearby cove for a bit of play time. We were told it was not unheard of to whale watch poolside. The location is certainly second to nothing we have ever experienced.
Daytime kayaking trips, hiking along the numerous trails on the property or a round of golf will keep everyone busy before retiring to your room for some much earned rest in the luxurious accommodations.
Evenings were spent by the outdoor fire pits located just outside the piano bar in the main lobby. Dinner at Catalina Kitchen served up amazing seafood pastas, sweet potato hash and succulent rib eye steaks. While absolute elegance abounds, our kids were made to feel comfortable and at home with smiles and helpful tips from the unbelievable staff.
Terranea is definitely worth a spot on your radar for a family vacation that you won’t soon forget.
The author and her family enjoyed a two-night complimentary stay at Terranea for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
