Richard purchased this House in 2008
Why Richard chose Woods Cove
We bought house because of its character, history, and location. It was run down and unimproved but I have slowly refurbished it wall by wall and been true to the historic nature of house and materials (no drywall anywhere). It now has modern electrical, plumbing, and insulation. Windows are double paned and quiet. House gets lots of compliments.
What makes this House unique
Walk the tandem kayak or paddleboard, down to beach and take in the the outrageous coastline and kelp. Bring mask and snorkel. Nap on beach, take an outdoor shower, and then walk toward town and dine anywhere that strikes you; super fun vacation

From Lonely Planet: "It’s easy to love Laguna: secluded coves, romantic cliffs, azure waves and waterfront parks imbue the city with a Riviera-like feel. But nature isn’t the only draw. From public sculptures and art festivals to free summer shuttles, the city has taken thoughtful steps to promote tourism while discreetly maintaining its moneyed quality of life (MTV’s reality show Laguna Beach being one drunken, shameless exception)."
One of the earliest incorporated cities in California, Laguna has a strong tradition in the arts, starting with the plein air impressionists who lived and worked here in the early 1900s. Today it’s the home of renowned arts festivals, galleries, a well-known museum and exquisitely preserved arts-and-crafts cottages and bungalows that come as a relief after seeing endless miles of suburban beige-box architecture. It's also the OC's most prominent gay enclave (even if the gay nightlife scene is a shadow of its former self)."
There are almost as many watering holes in downtown’s village as there are art galleries. Most cluster along S Coast Hwy and Ocean Ave, making for an easy pub crawl.
Once a month, downtown Laguna Beach gets festive during the First Thursdays Gallery Art Walk. You can make the rounds of 30 local galleries and the Laguna Art Museum via free shuttles circling Laguna’s art gallery districts.
Enjoy nearby hiking or mountain biking in Laguna Canyon, whale watching in Newport or Dana Point, world class golf, theme parks. The Surf and Sand Hotel, Montage, and Ritz Carlton are nearby to stroll the gorgeous grounds and visit the spa facilities.
During July and August, check out The Sawdust Festival where over 200 local artists exhibit and sell their artwork. Even if you’re not interested in purchasing anything, it’s fun to go just to peruse the exhibits and chat with local artists, most of whom are very enthusiastic about their craft, and love sharing with visitors. Also, the Pageant of the Masters, which features tableaux vivants (living pictures), which are incredibly faithful recreations of classical and contemporary works of art, with real people posing to imitate their counterparts in the original pieces.
We are SoCal natives and happy to help you plan your stay.
