"Monte Malaga - A Wonderful Place to Live"

Monte Malaga is a wonderful area of Palos Verdes Estates . It is a hilly area above both Malaga Cove and Lunada Bay with many of the homes having spectacular views. The homes tend to be either ranch style or Mediterranean style homes , many with tile roofs. It is relatively centrally located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula , and although it has no local shopping plaza in the immediate area, it has easy access to shopping in the Peninsula Center area of the Hill. The High Schools and Intermediate schools are about a 5 minute drive, and the local elementary school, Monte Malaga elementary, is centrally located for easy access. The schools are among the best in the State.

The City of Palos Verdes Estates has its own police department making for very quick response times in case of a problem. This area is one of the safest areas to live in Southern California as its somewhat remote location and confusing road layout make it difficult for unwanted visitors to find the area.

There are no real parks in the area making the local elementary school the only real place for kids to play. There are very nice regional parks, however, in adjacent Rancho Palos Verdes, such as Hess park and Ryan Park, as well as Ernie Howlett park in Rolling Hills Estates.

Although there is no immediate access to shopping, both community and Regional shopping centers are located a quick drive in the center of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is definitely a bedroom community.
  • Clean and safe
  • Great schools
  • Ocean views
