Laguna Beach house description

Welcome to Three Arch Bay! As the old saying goes, 'location, location, location!' Enjoy relaxed Laguna Beach living in Lower Three Arch Bay, situated on the ocean-side of PCH, at one of the top-rated private beaches in California and the U.S., rated a “Grade A” by the Heal the Bay Annual Report. No need for a golf cart in this rental home; the steps to this beautiful private beach are right around the corner.

This original beach house, built in the late ‘20s, was one of the first homes constructed in Three Arch Bay. Remodeled and added to in the 90's, it's a beautiful stucco and brick home with old-Laguna cottage feel. The home features raised wood beam ceilings, a mahogany wrap-around bar and a Spanish tile outdoor dining area with ocean views. If you’re coming with the kids, this home is next door to the park and playground of Three Arch Bay, complete with basketball court and playscape. Our personal croquet set and lazy afternoons come included with the house!

The beach stairs are five houses from our doorstep. Just cruise through the park and you’re halfway there. Included with the rental are beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella, a collection of sand toys to make a large sand castle village, and a surfboard if you're up for it. Speaking of surf, there are several legendary surf breaks and skimboarding beaches within 2 miles of Three Arch Bay.

During the summer months, a free public open-air trolley service is available to downtown Laguna at the entrance to Three Arch Bay (also walking distance), with departures and arrivals all day long. All visitors will enjoy our list of Laguna local destinations, including restaurants, shopping, state parks, and the best galleries in town. Pageant of The Masters and Festival of the Arts, as well as Sawdust Festival and many other events keep this beach-town entertaining, all year round.

Master Bedroom + Bathroom highlights
The master bedroom on the main floor features a king-sized pillow-top bed with organic sheets, dual side tables & lamps. This bedroom also features a LCD flat panel HDTV with a roomy full-length dresser, as well as beautiful original artwork.

The master bath features a full-size shower/built-in bath with artisan Mexican tile and a mahogany countertop with custom Mexican ceramic sinks.

Guest Bedroom highlights
The front guest bedroom features a very comfortable queen-sized bed and ocean view, overlooking the patio and succulent garden. The second cozy guestroom is adjacent to the front room and perfect for the kids with a new twin bed and twin trundle underneath. While ideal for two children, the beds are long enough for adults.

The two guestrooms on the main floor share a bathroom with shower/bathtub.

The final guest room is detached downstairs and private, adjacent to the laundry room, complete with dutch doors and a Mexican-tiled bathroom with pedestal sink and shower. It features a new queen-sized bed and dresser and beautiful beach-chic decor and linens.

Special Features
Large deck off the dining room with ocean-view and succulent garden, complete with outdoor dining table with bench and four chairs, BBQ grill (Weber charcoal) and double chaise for your lounging pleasure.

Living Room
The living/family room features two 90” sofas and vintage cowhide chair, and a wood-burning fireplace to keep you warm in the winter months. It includes a flat-screen 48” HDTV with HBO and DVR, DVD + blu-ray combo player, and stereo. Secure WiFi access throughout home, and a wireless printer, although we hope you aren’t planning to work too much.

Kitchen highlights
Fully furnished chef’s kitchen with large stainless commercial sinks, butcher-block countertops, professional knives and cooking utensils, and a brand new side-by-side viking refrigerator with filtered ice and six-burner viking gas stove/oven. Bake to your heart’s content with a well-stocked kitchen of baking utensils and ingredients

Kitchen also boasts a new LG dishwasher, coffee maker and grinder, Breville espresso maker, toaster, blender and garbage disposal.


Dining room
The formal dining room with gorgeous reclaimed wood table offers seating for eight and pacific ocean views. An adjacent wrap-around mahogany bar with bar stools completes the party. Fully stocked wine stemware from Reidel and Schott Zwiesel, including decanters and barware.

Location
Three Arch Bay is located between the Ritz Carlton, St. Regis and The Montage resorts. The neighborhood is guarded by security professionals 24/7 and gated for privacy. If you are coming for a long holiday or family reunion, there are several rental properties in Three Arch Bay (including a 2-BR cottage directly across the street) available to accommodate large groups and extended families. If you are seeking a beautiful beach vacation but want to avoid the crowds, Three Arch Bay beach is one of only three private beaches in Laguna, and undoubtedly the most beautiful. Privacy and ample room on the sand are yours. On a recent visit to the beach on a beautiful March afternoon, there were 6 people on the beach...it's never crowded!

The home is conveniently situated in Orange County 60 miles south of Los Angeles and 60 miles north of San Diego, with close proximity to Disneyland, Legoland, Seaworld and more, all within an hour’s drive. World-class golfing is at Pelican's Hill (rated #1 Golf Resort in the world by Conde Nast readers), the Links at St. Regis, and even a great public 9-hole course 2 miles away.

Extras
We have the most amazing in-home massage therapist, Nate! He specializes in deep tissue massage and brings the full set-up with spa linens, organic massage cream with aromatherapy, and table warmer. He is very reasonably priced and gives discounts on multiple guests.

If you're staying for more than a week, we have an optional house cleaning service for $100 weekly (additional to standard cleaning fee)- our housekeeper will wash all linens, sweep and mop, and clean the kitchen and bathrooms.
