About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)



A. Sits alongside the Pacific coast, on a rising bluff, just two minutes south of the Terranea Resort. Guests can use all resort amenities- golf, spa, restaurants, hiking trails, shops- but not resort pools.

B. Highly private. This villa is not on the resort property and thus you avoid the hoards

of corporate travelers, wedding parties, parking fees, resort fees, tipping, and inflated

food and beverage costs.

C. Villa sits on nearly an acre of private coastal property with majestic pine trees, walking paths, stone walls, gardens, fruit trees, and reflection benches.

D. Expansive and dramatic 180 degree views of the Pacific Ocean

E. Miles of meandering and scenic bluff top trails, hugely popular cycling region, Abalone Cove State Park and tidepools within walking distance.

PLEASE NOTE: This property is strictly for families who desire a private escape and exceptionally high level of quality time together- please do not inquire if your intention is to host a party or event of any kind, such as weddings, receptions, family reunions, rehearsal dinners, etc...

Keywords: Breathtaking ocean villa on the western edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California with 180 degree dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean.

About Mark Paolucci

My name is Mark Paolucci. I am a father of two boys and I own an advertising agency in Palos Verdes which specializes in the marketing of high end luxury resorts, hotels and private clubs throughout the world. I am a tennis, golf and hiking enthusiast. I enjoy collecting art which you'll find reflected in the cozy, warm comfort of my home.

Mark Paolucci purchased this villa in 2007

Why Mark Paolucci chose Rancho Palos Verdes

I chose this vacation property not as a vacation property, but as my personal residence, where I spend a great portion of my time when I'm not traveling- as it is truly a beautiful and inspired piece of property.

What makes this villa unique

I enjoy staring out to the sea, watching the waves crash, listening to the sound of the nearby chapel bells, reading a good book, walking along the cliffs, watching the weather roll by, enjoying my privacy, and the ever changing horizon- no two days are alike and the scenery changes by the minute.

Oceanfront Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here over the long Labor Day break. Total bonding time. Walks down to the water, hikes along the bluffs, exploring the tide pools, and just coming together as a family. And the views truly are breathtaking.

This place is absolutely stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We're renting this property for our parents 50th Wedding Anniversary and they love it! The view is breath-taking, the grounds beautiful and the house is just as described! Private, Cozy and Luxurious! We offered to rent our parents a Villa at nearby Terranea and the choice was simple: Mom "This is so much more private. I love it!" Dad "It couldn't get any better than this, it's even better than the pictures." The grandkids loved the grounds, the paths, and of course the awesome video game room. For family or for couples, this is now one of our favorite VRBO listings!
