Harbor Terrace Retirement Community

Harbor Terrace is a Senior Independent and Assisted Living Community located in San Pedro just three blocks from the harbor on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. We provide excellent service in a fresh and beautiful environment by a staff that is committed and experienced. All the details of daily living are taken care of, so one may enjoy life more fully. In addition Harbor Terrace is just steps away from shopping, restaurants, museums, churches, a large senior citizen's center, and a classic movie theatre. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy your time, the options at Harbor Terrace are endless. One can gather with a group of neighbors in the courtyard, patio, or garden room, partake in one of the many daily activities planned by our social director, or stop by one of the recreation rooms for a game of cards or scrabble. You are welcome to play your favorite tune on our grand piano, or catch up on all the latest while getting pampered in Nancy's Salon. Our 24 hour coffee shop is awaiting you with warm bakery goods, fresh fruit and beverages. It's all here for you.


Our Mission


  • Harbor Terrace is an award winning retirement community. We have consistently won for Best Retirement and Best Assisted Living in the South Bay year after year!
  • Our management team has been here since we opened our doors in 1990.
  • A one of a kind recreational and social program based on 38 years of experience in this field.
  • If a resident moves in and they are independent and then they eventually require assisted living services, they can remain in their same apartment. They do not need to move to another hall, floor or building. We bring our care and service to them. Plus they are only charged for the specific service they need and not a “package deal, or points”.
  • We are not part of a large corporation. We are family owned which allows us the flexibility to do what is best for our residents, not just what is best for the company.
  • Plenty of free underground, gated parking is provided at no additional cost.
  • No hidden fees
  • Our homey and comfortable atmosphere that has always been our trademark from the time one enters Harbor Terrace.
