About the community

Warm and exquisite interiors welcome you home, here at Harbor Terrace, a community offering independent and assisted living services in the quaint city of San Pedro, California. We’re located just a few miles off of the main channel, meaning several attractions are just a short drive away. With our complimentary transportation services, residents can explore local attractions like the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, the Historic Waterfront District, or even spend a day at the beach!

We’re proud and honored to have been voted South Bay’s Best for eight years in a row — meaning we care about your care. Both English- and Spanish-speaking staff members are on site to help bridge such language barriers. We know that Harbor Terrace wouldn’t feel like home without your pets, which is why we encourage you to bring them with you. We’re here to provide you with the care and attention that you deserve, while making you feel at home.

easy accessible location in south bay of LA

I like that this is a smaller facility so there personal attention but there is still a lot of activity variety. I would definitely recommend this community to others

I would absolutely recommend the community

The overall layout of the community and the rooms they provide the residents there would be a five out of five.

They saved my life

Thay saved my life. I was very independent but disabled when I moved. Did my own meds management and drove Moving stressed me I got very sick and stopped eating and taking meds. Front office staff was very concerned and called me every day and sent food to my room. Then they called 911 to take me to the emergency room. I had total renal failure. I am now on dyalysis and feeling much better. Now have an RN case manager recomended by Harbor Terrace to coordinate dyalysis and doctor visits and keep my family informed and I have a full time care giver to take me to dyalysis. Now starting to work again and much stronger.

My Step Dad Loves it here

I looked at several places and kept coming back to Harbor Terrace, Its nice and by the water. The people that live here seem so happy there. The staff here are friendly and attentive to him. They keep the community clean and well maintained, it has a nice courtyard he enjoys. Lots of activities such as music and comedy entertainment, Even a Happy Hour! The food is very good and have frequent movie nights too. The best thing is you can have pets here I bring my dog all the time to visit.

Need Improvements on meals!!

I have recently made the move into this community and so far things have been going alright. I do not have much interaction with the staff because I have my own caregivers that come in so I can't comment to much on them. I will say that the meals they have are awful and they do not know how to cook. I am not impressed with them at all and am hoping they make some improvements here shortly. They seem to have some nice activities available for the residents I just have not been able to participate in any of them due to my back.

Comfortable Care!!

I have no complaints about how things are going for my father since he made the move into this community. He is making improvements every day and has become less resistant about being there. The staff have been patient with his needs and I am comfortable with the care they have been providing him. To my knowledge everything has been going well for him and has been the perfect fit. Overall I am pleased and would recommend it to anyone.

Clean and friendly

We had more help before we moved in but we are not getting the same helpful responses after mom moved in.

I found this facility to be rather dated and I detected the faint odor of urine in the community room where the residents were listening to a piano player. I was alarmed by the mounting add on pricing that added quickly to the price of the room. The location is in a gang riddled part of town and for our hostess to be telling me there were a lot of places within walking distance when I obviously have mobility issues was insulting if not depressing. I will not be opting for this facility. 1947 Woman

I like it so far!

Harbor Terrace has been a good choice so far. It's clean with a friendly staff. I chose them because of the amenities they offer.

Very nice facility. Friendly and professional staff. It seemed to be a little cheaper than other facilities. Mom has decided to have in-home care.

Truly A Blessing!!!!

Before deciding on a place for my father I looked into several places both in California and Arizona. From the minute I walked into Harbor Terrace Retirement Center I knew it was the place I wanted my father to live. It is clean, bright and very inviting; the staff is friendly and they truly care about the people living there. There are plenty of fun activities throughout the day to keep the residents busy and entertained and the food is excellent. My father has the best of both worlds now; an independent apartment with all his things for when he wants to relax and just watch some TV alone and just outside his door a beautiful place with all his new friends, staff who have become family to watch over him and activities to keep him busy. I cannot say enough, this place is awesome!

I believe this would have been a good fit for my mom!!!

Mom was not able to move into this community as they do not accept residents that are already in wheelchairs. They are a little more expensive than the community she is at now. They charge for any extra services that may be needed. It seemed to have an active environment. I received a good report from a family that has a loved one that currently lives there. The staff were nice and the community looked clean.

Wonderful retirement community!

My dad loves it there! There are a lot of activities for him. The staff is so nice to work with and helpful with Dad's health issues. His room is kept very clean. He gets fresh sheets and towels every week. I am so glad that I found Harbor Terrace!

We are really happy with them.

We are really happy with them. My mom really likes it. They seem to have a lot of scheduled activities going on, though she doesn't participate in much, so it's hard to say how they are. We liked the feel of it, when we were choosing a place. It was friendly and warm, and the people who greeted us and spoke with us were very reassuring. The staff had been there a really long time as well, and we felt like that said a lot about the community.

Very friendly care staff

They've done a great job here with my loved one so far! The care staff have been great with him, they are friendly, caring, and professional. The facility itself is nice looking, and always well kept and clean. They haven't been perfect, sometimes a few details will slip through the cracks when it comes to care, but on the whole they've been great.

Moving was not so hard, not with a Place for Mom at your fingertips

Loved the one on one help I received from our assigned helper who only wanted the best "fit" for our 93 year old aunt and for our needs too. We were given numerous places to visit if need be; we stated what we hoped to get and were given a variety of places to comb through. We love the place we selected. Our aunt was afraid of change; Had we known she would adjust this easily we would have moved her sooner. Could not believe that she might "bloom" somewhere else - but proof is in the pudding! We are grateful to both A Place For Mom and for Harbor Terrace. We love that the turn over for staff and residents is so low!!

Great job overall

So far I think they're doing a great job here! It's a very clean facility, the staff are great, and the care and activities are what we were hoping they'd be. We've also been very impressed with the food, they've got a very nice kitchen. My loved one has really been enjoying the food here, and she can be somewhat of a critic!

Not A Safe Area

My husband didn't like the area. My aunt likes walking around and he thought the area is not safe to go out and take a walk even in the day time. Also, the community is kind of cramped with people. I mean, the place is nice, it's just that it's very limited. There is not as much space to walk around especially outside. Plus they didn't have a one bedroom room for her at the time.
