Laguna Woods condo description
Great vocation condo for retired people (long term) and families (up to three months). Adults need to be 55+. Great weather all year round. Especially great for golfers.
Well-appointed condo with all the comforts that you expect at home; tasteful decorations and sophisticated colors that enhance atmosphere and cheer you up; classic antique furniture, wooden shining floors covered abundantly with beautiful area rugs; convenient ground level entrance combined with a green exterior patio that offers a commanding view on higher grounds on the other side. Double-pane new windows that offer quiet retreat right in the condo; fresh air flows that circulate all around the indoor space; new air-conditioning units that cool you down whenever there is a need; beautiful quiet ceiling fans and lights in each room, dining area and living room, making air-conditioning only an occasional last resort. In winter, the condo is equipped with an energy-saving heater to keep you warm from occasional cold air at night while saving electricity costs. The living room and dining area are brightly lit with romantic unmatched sunset views. All the wall spaces are carefully designed and framed, with shapes and colors that reflect the furniture and create a harmonious stimulating ambiance.
All cooking/kitchen wares, dining plates, and cups provided. There is a 27" TV hidden in the furniture offering many cable channels (including the golf channel). One of my favorite is the classic arts channel which offers entertainment in so many different forms. No land line phone installed, but the service can be easily provided at renters’ expense. High-speed Internet service can also be provided at renters’ own expense (around $22.50 per month plus a possible re-installation fee $16 if disconnected earlier by another tenant). Close to clubhouse #4 and #1. Laundry room is a short stroll away, 50c for washing and free drying. Located between gate 5 and gate 6; parking space and guest parking most convenient. There is RV parking in the community. You can rent golf carts, drive on marked golf routes, and manage your daily affairs (shopping, doctors’ visit, eat-out, etc.) without a car. You can easily rent a car if you do need it from time to time.
This is prime location in Orange County with many beautiful beaches to stroll; hiking, boating diving and fishing activities in the most romantic beaches of California. Inside the community, there is a wildlife park along the Aliso Creek with an easy hiking trail for all ages. If you are more adventurous, there are also many hiking trails in the huge Laguna Coast Wilderness Park next to the community. Right next to it, there is also Crystal Cove State Park. No wonder the community has such fresh air. There is a convenient bus ($1 ticket) going to Laguna Beach in about 10 minutes.
There is an enjoyable 9-hole par-3 course that will get you hooked before you are ready to go to the famous 27-hole golf course. The place is most user friendly to all golf beginners. Whether you are learning or playing, come and enjoy it for a great golf vocation. The new golf clubhouse (The Village Greens) is open to all Village residents and guests and consists of 17,800 square feet of combined interior space and outdoor decking. The building has golf carts for rent, a pro shop, equipment storage, and a number of meeting rooms available for Village clubs and residents. All Village residents will have access to the new full service inexpensive restaurant and café with spacious outdoor decks and spectacular views of Orange County’s Saddleback Valley and Santa Ana Mountains.
Great opportunity to stay for several months and you may just want to move here. Nearby are Laguna Beach with its arts festivals, the mission at San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, Newport Beach, Southcoast Plaza, Irvine Spectrum, Fashion Island shopping center, Segerstrom Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, South Coast Performing Arts Productions at Santa Ana, Angels Stadiums, Ducks (hockey).
Laguna Woods Village (formally Leisure World) is one of the premier 55+ age-restricted gated communities for the active lifestyle. It is located on 2,100 acres of rolling hillsides just minutes from the Laguna Beach coastline. Residents enjoy special interest activities including 7 club houses, 2 fitness centers, 5 swimming pools, 500 different social clubs, yoga, lawn bowling, table tennis, shuffleboard, bridge, photography lab/darkrooms, arts and crafts, a computer-learning center, equestrian center with horses available to residents, an 814 seat performing arts center, and a choice of more than 100 Saddleback College Emeritus courses (held right in the Village clubhouse 4) and 230 clubs and organizations. Also included is free bus rides throughout and around the village. Many restaurants and complete shopping mall/movie theatre within a 5 minute bus ride.
There are so many houses of worship around here. Saddleback Memorial Hospital, Hoag Hospital and other medical facilities are in close proximity. Emergency and Fire personnel are minutes away. We have a collection of good restaurants and places to go, complete with maps, AAA guide books, golf books etc. in a package for your convenience. The community center provides many services for the residents and give you free internet access, gyms, ping-pong tables and is right next to a great Hometown Buffet you want to visit from time to time.
The community is one of the Rossmoor properties designed by the creative and visionary builder Ross Cortese. There are two other such communities in California: one in Walnut Creek, and one in Seal Beach. This one in Laguna Woods has the best location by far in terms of access to the activities you want for a great vocation.

ReviewsWrite a review
We have just returned from three months in Laguna Woods and we can hardly wait to go back. The Condo we rented was very comfortable, clean and spacious with a beautiful view of the sunset. It is located in a very convenient area. Harrison (owner) was extremely helpful from beginning to end. Any questions we had were answered in a timely manner. The Condo is close to shopping, restaurants and the ocean. We dined at the Golf Club many times. The food is delicious and the view is beautiful. So many activities and the weather is perfect. Laguna Beach is about 15mins away with galleries, shops and so many restaurants. It is also only an hour to Lajolla and Los Angeles. We had a great time!

The hosts were truly welcoming, trustworthy, gracious and always very accommodating. The property was exactly as the pictures show and the condo was more than comfortable. It was also a great location---with easy access to El Toro Road, a main artery in the area. If you're a golfer--this is truly heaven! The clubhouse is only 10 minutes away and of course beautiful Laguna Beach, Crystal Cove, San Juan Capistrano and so much more are all so wonderfully convenient. Enjoy!!!

Wonderful winter get-away turned into more....

I believe we were the second rental guest the owners have had. The owners were very friendly and trust-worthy, and did everything they could to enable our stay (2 months) to be very enjoyable. All description in the listing is accurate and photos show accurately on the tastefully decorated units. Yes, the master bed room was very comfortable. The activity we enjoyed most was swimming in an outside pool maintained at 85 F - we walked to the pool pretty much everyday. We also enjoyed visits to the Laguna Beach (15 min) and Crystal Cove state park (5 min furhther). The I-5 and I-405 are very easy to get on. We frequestly visited various places in the LA, Orange and San Diego counties. We highly recommend this property to anyone 55+ visiting southern orange county, especially ones who are interested in finding out what it is like living in the Laguna Woods Village. When we went there we knew very little about the Laguna Woods Village and we had no thoughts of moving there from our very comfortable large home in a midwestern city. We just wanted to get away cold winter for a couple of months as we had done before. However, after 2 weeks of stay, we started to look for a similar condo unit for ourselves. By the time we were leaving, we had completed purchasing one unit close-by.

Laguna Woods is quite the place ! a little overwhelming. Should have moved years ago ! We enjoyed the condo -- great decor ! All of the facilities – fabulous especially the golf courses and club houses, Also the fitness center and the large pool. Tons of things to do ! Buses are great – once you figure them out. Glad we came. Sincerely, Nadine. We were appreciative of the availability of the condo for our stay in Laguna Woods ! It was very comfortable, especially the bed in the Master BR ! The accommondation was comfortable in most respects, and satisfied our needs. We got a chance to check out the LGW community and its many details. Best Regards !! Ray Whelan.

Owner response: The couple is from Seattle, and the review is submitted by their daughter-in-law at Coto de Caza on their behalf as they don't use computers. Ray is 90+ but still keeps an active life, and enjoys golf at Laguna Woods. We are proud to be of service to this wonderful couple.
