You will find all the luxuries of vacationing without having to sacrifice the comforts of home in this breath-taking, 3,500 square foot, Laguna Beach house. Up on a bluff just 40 yards from the sand, watch the waves, surf and sand, or the beautiful sunsets and over 180 degree view. Better yet, walk just 75 yards to the private beach access down to the sand of Tablerock beach. The living room is decorated with high-end Tommy Bahama furnishings and has a beautiful fireplace. Located off the beach-side of the famed Pacific Coast Highway, this home is conveniently located, however, part of its charm lies in the fact that it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Wrap-around balconies, with spectacular views, on the second and third floors will enhance your vacation experience. Here you can sit back in the deck chairs with cup of coffee or a cocktail and watch the waves crash and keep an eye out for whales and dolphins that frequently visit the cove. Famous restaurants are within walking distance, however, the fully equipped gourmet kitchen make leaving unnecessary.
The kitchen features a cooktop, double Thermador ovens, coffee maker, cappucino maker, waffle iron, panini maker and any other gadget you may be in need of. If you would rather cook outside, the balcony features a bbq. There is also a wet bar equipped with an ice maker, wine fridge, and all of the glassware to create mouth-watering cocktails and mixed drinks.
During the summer, there is a life guard station right on Tablerock Beach. Be sure to take advantage of the complimentary beach toys and chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, picnic baskets and umbrellas. Should you decide to stay in, you can curl up next to the fireplace and watch DirectTV's premium programming with all of the movie channels as well as high speed wireless internet, board games, DVDs and puzzles.
This is a great home for a family or multiple families, since, in addition to the two bedrooms with queen beds, there is also a tranquil spa-like master suite featuring a Cal king bed, sitting area overlooking the ocean, oversized tub with large window that overlooks the ocean, glass shower with dual shower heads and a 'rainfall' feature, a walk-in closet and a fireplace. There is a separate den (bedroom) right off of the master which has a trundle bed making into 2 twins, or one queen bed. In addition to the spacious top floors, the bottom floor features a private studio apartment with a kitchenette, dining area, bathroom, trundle bed, private entry and patio. This house sleeps 10 comfortably, and there are additional air mattresses. Parking at the beach will not be a problem, as there are 5 dedicated parking spaces. Our guests always state that the pictures don't do our property justice. We are very confident that after you take your first trip to Secret Cove, you will make it a tradition to come back year after year! *Be sure to check out the video link on the top of the page!

About the owner: Jim Martindale is the president of Martindale Commercial Real Estate, Inc. in Glendora. His dream has always been to have a home at the beach, and feels this is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach: Laguna Beach has often been described as one of the most incredible beaches in the world by reviewers from publications such as Cigar Aficionado and Men's Journal. When a home became available in Laguna right off of the famous Pacific Coast Highway, my wife and I jumped at the opportunity to own a home in this dream location.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home is located literally steps from a beautiful secluded beach. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and watching crashing waves while enjoying a cup of coffee on the balcony. The free local tram services a stop just a few blocks from the home and has multiple drop off points which take you into the heart of Laguna. If you prefer to walk, it is a short stroll to art galleries, boutique shops, and fabulous restaurants. The grocery store is also very nearby so stocking the fridge or sneaking out for a bottle of wine when the mood hits is always convenient. There are also some wonderful public beaches that are accessible via the downtown area.
