Just to the east, perhaps 100 yards, is the exclusive conclave of Huntington Harbor with its canals and boat docks (and $3 Mil. homes). To the west, about 50 yards, is the beach and -- beyond -- the blue Pacific. 26 miles out is Santa Catalina Island, behind which the sun bids farewell to us each evening. You'd have to go another few thousand miles west (Hawaii) to find a better spot with spectacular views.
With the investment of a little shoe leather you don't have to fork out the $4K a week for the views. Our nearby pier does quite nicely.
