There’s been a definite lack of inventory in the world of ocean view and ocean front condos in Redondo Beach over the past 18 months. Prices have risen dramatically as inventory dipped to record lows and demand for the “vacation” style feel of complexes such as the Seascape buildings, The Village and condos on the Esplanade have continued to grow. At least in one complex there’s been a higher than usual number of homes coming on the market in recent days. Seascape One is located in the 200 block buildings of The Village (which is unusual in itself as it’s actually on Catalina). As of July 18th there are 3 units for sale in Seascape One. Of the 3 2 offer a interior garden view (this is the only Seascape or Village building offering interior facing units) and one offers some pretty significant ocean and harbor views. Built in 1978 the condos are fairly ideally located just behind King Harbor and walkable to the pier, the beach, and the shops and restaurants of the King Harbor area.

Although the housing inventory has been low in Redondo Beach for almost 2 years now, the market for and ocean view Village condos is almost non-existent. Popular condo complexes such as The Village, the Seascape buildings, and various oceanfront buildings on the Esplanade are nowhere near the normal inventory levels. According to realtor Keith Kyle, “It’s really been months since there’s been anything new. There are currently a few places that have been on the market for some time now, but the few new listings, if priced anywhere near where they should be, disappear quickly.”
“These homes offer the iconic South Bay beach lifestyle and are are highly sought after, often by professionals that travel extensively, local retired or semi-retired people looking for that vacation beach feel, or those priced out of nearby townhomes and single family homes.”
The inventory has continued to drop to nearly a trickle with only 2 condos on the market as of this writing. Both are in the Seascape buildings behind King Harbor and the Redondo Pier area. The homes often offer the real feel of living on vacation as many have great views and some offer terrific amenities.
The Village in South Redondo Beach may just be the most affordable way of living near the water in the South Bay. The Village condominiums and townhomes feature 323 well maintained units including studio, 1 bedroom, and 2 bedroom condos along with a few townhome style homes at the southern end of the property. The Village offers resort style living and includes two beautiful pool and spa areas (one is for owners only, the other is owned by Ocean Club rental units but fully usable by the owners in The Village) a state of the art fitness center (again part of the Ocean Club but free access is provided to owners) several bbq areas, walk paths, access to the Redondo pier area and more. Most units have ocean views, ocean breezes and are a wonderful place to call home…or a second home. Visit our 620 The Village site for pictures, videos, floorplans and more.

Continuous history of low HOA dues
A Legal Judgment, favoring The Village, specifies that Lyon Management Group cannot increase the monthly fee they charge the Village HOA for our access to the recreational facilities at the Ocean Club.** Long term, this helps to keep our HOA dues down.

What’s around the Village?
One of the nicest features to living in The Village is that you can park your car on a Friday and never need to get back in until Monday (or if you’re really lucky weekdays are not any different than weekends). There is so much to do and all within walking distance.
In our continuing discussions of oceanfront condos in Redondo Beach today we’ll spotlight the Oceania building at 721 Esplanade. As this is one of the furthest south of all the larger condo buildings views are often about as good as they get….especially on units that face NW. Oceania consist of 28 1 and 2 bedroom condos, all directly facing the ocean. Some of the units sit on the corner and enjoy even more dramatic views that extend from Palos Verdes to Malibu with the coastline and King Harbor in between.
HOA fees run around $315 a month (as of August 2014) but the amounts vary slightly. Oceania has a very nice sun deck but the building does not have a pool or spa. The building does have a small fitness room and laundry is common area with individual units not having W/D hookups. As of this post, pets are permitted according to the CCRs.
721 Esplanade sits as high on the bluff as any of the buildings so views are just about as good as it gets (it also has the best ocean front views of any parking lot we’ve seen).
Located just east of King Harbor, Seascape One, feels like life on vacation. Ocean views, landscaped grounds, beautiful sunsets over the ocean, hotel style pool and more make this a great option for people looking for a great location with a beach vibe.
