The beauty of living in Santaluz is having the luxury of doing as much or as little as you please


Unlike many other luxury residential and golf communities, this master planned development located just east of Del Mar and next to Rancho Santa Fe, provides all the amenities of resort living enveloped in a secured, safe community that celebrates outdoor living. As such, Santaluz draws a diverse range of residents who represent a multigenerational, multicultural mosaic grouted by a love of both privacy and outdoor living.

Generous and uniquely configured lots turn distinctive custom homes into residential sanctuaries. You can curl up on the couch or take in the sunset from your backyard without being distracted by your neighbors. If you wish for more active solitude, there’s always a walk or run along more than 25 miles of trails that weave in and around hillsides, valleys, creeks and groves within the 3,800 acres that comprises Santaluz. There is also a higher level of safety thanks to guarded gates at each entrance.

Those wishing to spend time with friends, new and old, need go no further than joining the Santaluz Club, where The Hacienda offers swimming, tennis, group exercise classes, private trainers and The Fresh Roast café. There’s also the Clubhouse & Spa, with its fine dining and spa treatments to reward yourself after a hard day’s (or week’s) work. And, of course, there’s the private golf course club that provides as much play as you can manage on a world-class championship course.

Santaluz is a draw for families because of nearby award-winning schools and because there are so many daily and weekly activities on site. Residents enjoy the comfort that comes with living and socializing within a gated community. From toddler play groups to bridge clubs, Indian princesses to ladies luncheons, there is something for every age and avocation. And for every season, in addition to regular programs, residents gather to celebrate Santaluz Living with such seasonal events as the Fall Harvest Festival, Winter Holiday Celebration, Spring Fling and the community’s signature event, The Summer Celebration and Fireworks Spectacular.

Santaluz was designed to work in concert with nature, and it’s that commitment to preserving the environment – and homeowners’ resale values – that allows for program and service expansions to meet evolving needs without compromising the rustic feel or roominess residents love. Among the newest additions is a modern facility where dog owners can exercise their animals and interact with other pet owners, Santaluz’s very own Dog Park.

Whether your idea of relaxing is spending quiet time at home or dancing at the club, there is something to suit every preference and lifestyle at Santaluz.
