Actually, I would like to respectfully correct the last posting from Sharon - Via Renaissance is located WEST of the freeway. We live and sell property in De Luz..
Let us know what kind of animals you are looking to raise. There are 5 HOA's in De Luz. They all have rules as it pertains to animals. Via Renaissance is a gorgoeus gated community. If you are considering live stock, this would not be allowed. The HOA fees are very very low for most of the De Luz- some as low as $15.00 a month. Via Renaissance the HOA fee is $250 a month and much more restrictive than other HOA's in De Luz..
Just incase you didn't know.... the weather is fantastic in De Luz .... the temps are 10-15 degrees cooler in the summer and 10-15 degree warmer in the winter, due to the ocean influence.
We have a full ocean view from our home. You can grove just about anything- depending on the property elevation.
Scott and I discribe De Luz as a cross between Hawaii and Tuscany.
Also we compare De Luz to Rancho Sante Fe, located in San Diego County, at a much lower price point! : )
De Luz is a hidden gem! We love living here! : )
