"Family oriented, established neighborhood in Laguna Niguel"

Recently some friends came out to visit and wanted to scout out some neighborhoods in Laguna Niguel for a possible relocation from Michigan. We are very familiar with Laguna Niguel having made it a primary search area of our own when we moved to Orange County. Our friends are an older couple with kids about to enter high school. So, carefully considering their situation we pointed them to Kite Hill.

Kite Hill is a more established neighborhood in Laguna Niguel, dating back to the 1970’s with some of its earlier construction. Set on a hill, it offers spectacular views as does many of the newer communities, yet it has much more personality and color than some of the homogenous neighborhoods of stucco houses. The homes here are eclectic architectural mix of single and two story homes in a variety of styles.

It’s not gated, however, it has a distinctive entrance to an otherwise very private community. Just inside the large marble fixtures is an very nice community park replete with all the amenities one would look for – lighted courts and fields, an Olympic size pool, cabanas, walking paths, and a recreational facility.

We have heard that Kite Hill has a very sound HOA and, because it is a more stable community with very little turnover, the fees have remained low relative to other HOAs. One concern voiced by younger families there is that the elementary school is of average quality. This wasn’t a concern of ours because the high school, Aliso Viejo High, is considered to be well above average.

Close to beaches, major shopping, the regional park in the family oriented community of Laguan Niguel, Kite Hill is an ideal location for our Michigan friends.
