At this Rancho Palos Verdes home, the outdoors appears at almost every turn. In one direction, there's a glowing sunset or fog rising off Santa Catalina Island; in another, the green hills (at least in winter) of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Wide-angle ocean views define the Midcentury Modern that's more glass than walls, blurring the lines between inside and outside. Little of the single-level house can be seen from street level on the hilly cul-de-sac. A long, curved path winds past a few wispy evergreens, skirts a koi pond and continues over a narrow wooden footbridge before the entire house comes into view.

Trump, whose main residence is in New York, said he splits his time in Los Angeles between his home in Beverly Hills and Rancho Palos Verdes, "where the job is. " He has built six houses at the golf course, which has lots for 75. "This is one of the best locations with a direct view of the Pacific Ocean and views from three sides of the house," he said.

Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, which defaulted on two loans last year, has found new investors and successfully recapitalized, its owners said Tuesday. The deal allows Los Angeles developer Lowe Enterprises to retain ownership of the $480-million resort, which opened last year amid the worst travel market since the Great Depression. Lowe was one of hundreds of California hotel owners that received notices of default or faced foreclosures by their lenders last year. Terms of the transaction announced Tuesday include an extension of the loans on the property and new capital commitments of more than $100 million.

I've got a full-time job, two teenagers, a husband and a dog, plus a near-pathological inability to say no, so the very idea of driving alone — alone! — toward the Palos Verdes Peninsula on a Sunday morning had me ready for a lovely spa experience. And Terranea, no ordinary spa, was just what I was looking for. Opened about a year ago at the new oceanfront luxury resort on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, it's got a dreamboat location, on the site of the former Marineland, that made me feel like I was light years from the life I left 20-some miles behind.

It was about 10 years ago that Marymount College asked Rancho Palos Verdes to approve a campus remodel, a makeover that would include a new library and gym and bring student housing to the ocean-view campus for the first time. Now, angry at what it says is the agonizingly slow pace of gaining approval for the more than $50-million project, the small Catholic college has decided to take the issue directly to the city's voters with an initiative on the November ballot. Marymount's move is unprecedented in Rancho Palos Verdes, a town of about 42,000 people with multimillion-dollar homes, spectacular ocean views and modest political campaigns.
