About the owner: I am a local designer/builder and author. When I'm in town, I try and greet guests personally when they first arrive and give them a private tour if they like. Just let me know - otherwise, make yourself at home :)
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach: I have lived in Laguna Beach for over 30 years and Bluebird Canyon remains one of my favorite locations in all of Laguna. This vacation home is nestled up against a greenbelt, with cool ocean breezes blowing up the canyon most every day, and a hidden tennis court just a 1/2 block away . .It's heaven on earth :)
The Unique Benefits at this House: It's very rare to find a location that has the quiet of the country yet is walking or biking distance to the fun and attractions of the Village. Bluebird Canyon is a unique area that has it all: very few neighbors, lot's of stars at night, and wildlife like deer, rabbit, and raccoons - and all right up from of one of the most beautiful beach resort towns in the world. This is truly one of the most serene and special spots on the planet to experience. You won't want to leave :)
