Bay Cliff Village Homes

With only 28 single-family homes, Bay Cliff Village is a very small, oceanside community. Homes were built between 1962 and 1963 by Douglas Construction with designs planned for low-maintenance living. Resale homes today often feature lush, mature landscaping and various owner-chosen upgrades.

Homes were originally built in two different floor plans. Plan A has a 1,016 square-foot layout with one bedroom and one bathroom. Though this model is rarely available as a resale, its smaller size tends to make it a less expensive option. Resale homes built with the Plan B floor plan are more common to find on the market.

Average Rating for this Community

I moved in Bay Cliff Village East in 1998 solely because of its close proximity to the ocean. The bad thing: living in a duplex. The good thing: having a 6foot privacy fence between the two units. Douglass who starting building Bay Cliff in 1962 obviously knew how important it was to have privacy in such a small area.
Lots of grassy area makes it a very pleasant place to live.
