If you were to pick, which one would you pick? Closer to the ocean, say Marina Hills (with all the cookie cutter home, but HOA keeps it nice and neat and provides amenities--pool, etc), or Laguna Hills (not Moulton Ranch or Nelli Gail, but in one of the communities off of La Paz where every home is different (so makes for an interesting walk in the neighborhood) and there is no HOA? I'm in LN over on Pacific Island on the hill and it's foggy and much cooler, but LH is further from the ocean and a little warmer. I've compared schools and I can live with schools in both areas. For resale purposes and disirability, what would be a wiser choise? (home buying here is much harder than I imagined). Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Look at the price per square foot and that will give you sufficient information to determine desirability.

I would do Laguna Hills. LN is just a bit too far out in the Boonies for my taste. Another cool thing about LH ... it's next to Laguna Beach!



And meanwhile, you are right near Irvine, etc, and all which that implies.

Laguna Niguel is in the "boonies and not close to Laguna Beach" but Laguna Hills is not the boonies and "right next" to Laguna beach?

But to be fair, even Laguna Hills is not really my cup of tea.

I much prefer NW OC.

Laguna Hills is colored gray and Laguna Niguel is yellow. Some OC cities are, um, MIA.

I get to Laguna Beach in 10-12 minutes; far less than that to the southern tip of LB. WTH are you talking about? We are right by Laguna Beach and Dana Point. Our post office is the Laguna Beach/Laguna Niguel post office! Laguna Hills is much more inland.

The areas OP is discussing outside of Nellie Gail are generally not that desirable. There, I spelled it out.
