About the property

House, 1 bedroom, 2 bath with available futon and linens

Come watch the sun rise over the hills of Laguna Beach, take a stroll to town, stop at the beach on the way home, see the sun set over Catalina Island while relaxing on the deck, then watch the moon rise above the city lights below from the king size bed! Pick avocados in the adjacent grove, or hike the canyon at the end of the private street!

Exclusive, quiet, completely furnished rental with 180 degree canyon and ocean views. Uniquely designed by owner/architect Kirk Saunders for friends and family to enjoy, this 'modern rustic' home features top of the line appliances, materials, furniture and linens.

With 'sustainability' in mind, the house uses solar power for it's electricity, radiant slab floor heating provides warmth, a grey water system recycles water for irrigating the drought tolerant landscaping (for 'guilt-free' showers!), and recycled doors and materials are used throughout.

Ideally located less than a mile from the beach, a mile from 'downtown' Laguna, 25 minutes from Disneyland and an hour to San Diego or Los Angeles.

Fully outfitted with gas barbeque, fireplace, kitchen and two ocean view decks, the 'Ohana,' (Hawaiian for 'family') is perfect for anyone looking for a serene retreat near the coast in beautiful Laguna Beach.

Amazing, awesome, etc.

  • 5 of 5

The owners - Mary Kate and Kirk are very special people. Their boys are great too. They all helped me fully connect to Laguna and the surrounding area. I've visited many times but have never felt so welcomed and so much at home. Caring and love is evident in every aspect of Ohana - a visually stunning property. The instant you walk in, shoulders relax from around your ears, brain's natural Xanax. Be careful though. As with any thing that makes you feel good - you can become dependent and not want to leave!
