Niguel Beach Terrace VRBO apartments 1/2009-?

Don't let the messages fool you about how close they are to the beach. We arrived on 12/27/08 only to find the beach access was closed for reconstruction. To get to the great beach you must drive and then walk. Hopefully by summer the access will be open -- but check before you book.

We have just booked in April 2009 for a condo at Niguel Beach Terrace and a big draw was the beach access. How far did you have to drive to get to the beach and is their ample parking available?

We are disappointed to here about the reconstruction - hopefully they will be ahead of schedule and have it complete by then.

The construction on the North Stairs for Strand Beach were supposed to be completed by Feb 09.

If they are not complted by the time you arrive,then the closest beach is 3 min up the road at Salt Creek Beach. there is a large parking lot there and services at the beach. This is the beach below the Ritz Carlton Hotel.

You could actually walk to this beach from that condo if you like to walk.

Niguel beach terrace are really nice, many have ocean views, but they are built on a very high bluff, so the beach is down 113 stairs... So, no, you will not be strolling back and forth to the beach from the condos. The Ritz (Salt Creek Beach) is a short drive north on PCH, but you will park and walk walk walk to the sand. I wouldn't recommmend walking there form Niguel Beach condos.(Also be careful who you rent from- we had a weird exoperience at one, where the owner was in our face and then with-held our deposit, and another where it was great. see my other forum post from April 08 for the story on that one)
