I’ve lived in the Palos Verdes all my life and had the pleasure of access to the Queen’s Necklace views. Growing up on the Miraleste side of the hill, I was fortunate enough to enjoy the LA Harbor views and city lights that came from itl. Miraleste aka (“mira al este”) translates to english as “look to the east”.
The Miraleste community is located in Rancho Palos Verdes, California or the East side of the “hill”. This area offers various homes, from diverse original 1920’s to modern new construction homes with AMAZING views!
