Car: Recommended

We are located in north Laguna a short walk (2.5) blocks to the beach and to (6 blocks) downtown. Our Favorite sushi place is a couple blocks away, 242 sushi fusion. My Kids love walking to main beach spending the day playing in the sand, at the park and then grabbing a pizza at the Pizza Lounge. Of course my husband and I prefer to go across the street to Tommy Bahamas or Nicks, but the kids usually get their way. Plan on coming in the summer to see the world famous Pageant of the Masters and include an evening at the nearby sawdust festival. Take the trolly down to stop 18 and grab a drink at the Montage overlooking the beautiful sunset. Make time for Disneyland if you have kids. Kids of all ages will enjoy Sea world and the Famous San Diego Zoo.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a fun and adventure seeking memory making family of five. Two girls 8 and 6 and a boy of 5. We love to travel anytime we can. But Laguna has always drawn us back. We live in Monterey, california full-time. This house used to be our full time residence until we needed to relocate to northern California.

Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
Our two year search around the orange county area landed us here. We narrowed down to Laguna Beach and then further down to North Laguna. We wanted to be able to walk to town and to the beaches. It was love at first sight we new right away this was home. The sound of the fountain the beautiful garden and the true one of a kind character of the home. It is a home with a heart and a soul that speaks to you when you arrive. It was important for us to have a great deal of indoor outdoor living spaces and the pool was a bonus since we new we wanted to have children.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Streets in North Laguna are beautiful with old trees and a unique feel. In the summer Laguna can become very crowed so being on the north end of town can give you easy access up PCH to Newport beach or the freeways and airports. Perfect place to vacation anytime of the year.
