About Gay fontanesi

We have lived in our wonderful home for 40 years. Our 2 adult children were born and raised in this fantastic home. How many people can say that? Because I no longer live here full time, I have chosen to share it with you. It is a very warm and comfortable house. The bones of this home are strong, rich with character, and family tradition. I know whoever rents our home will have a wonderful time and a vacation full of memories.

Gay fontanesi purchased this house in 1977

Why Gay fontanesi chose Laguna Beach

This home is very 'user friendly'!!! It is complete with all necessary and needed accessories that renters may need to use. The owner lives 30 minutes away from the home and is readily available to solve any and/or all situations that may need her assistance. The view from the house is fantastic and the location of the house makes access to beaches, shops, restaurants in downtown Laguna Beach just a few minutes walk down to the village.

What makes this house unique

Where do I begin? This house and property is delightful. beautiful, and charming, It is user-friendly and on a quiet cul de sac. The street is level and the 2 story home is secluded. Walking is a treat as downtown Laguna is a short stroll away, just below the house and 5 minutes away.

Wonderful Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about the gold star treatment we received from the owner of this property. We enjoyed every second out on the deck with the beautiful view of the ocean, the kitchen that had everything that we needed, and the owner even had toys for our young children to play with. She went above and beyond any experience we have had before and would stay again!! This is a top rate home with a top rate owner. Thanks so much Gay!!

Beautifully decorated, comfortable home for a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights and couldn't have been more comfortable in this home. It accommodated all 8 of us from 5-60. We celebrated two birthdays and Mother's Day. The views of the ocean and the beautiful ferns and greenery were my favorite! The kitchen was so well equipped that you could have eaten every meal there, altho we chose to explore the Laguna Beach restaurants which were easily, within walking distance. The little ones found so many things to do while at the house, that they gave the adults time to catch up. It was very convenient to have a 2 car garage for us to park in and not have to hike in every time we left. It was a wonderful weekend and I hope to return soon!

Gorgeous house - fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this place. We loved the views (absolutely gorgeous ocean views from the front yard, living room, dining room, and 2nd floor bedrooms), the ping-pong table in the back yard, the exceptionally comfortable living room, the huge kitchen, the BBQ, the two-car garage, and the porch swing. Gay couldn't have been more welcoming. And she's thought of everything visitors might want: Detergent for the washing machine? Yes. Stroller, beach chairs, wagon? Yes. Binoculars for whale watching? Yes. A hideaway full of toys? Yes. The location is centrally located yet tucked-away on a quiet street. The only caveat I'll mention is that her neighbors were having some remodeling work done. This didn't hamper us at all as they worked from 9-5 when we were out of the house, but if you had your heart set on lounging at the house during weekday daytime hours you may wish to check in with Gay to see if the remodeling work is complete. Gay proved incredibly responsive to all requests by email and text. Her beautiful house met with unanimous approval from everyone in the group from ages 3 to 66. We only wished we could stay for longer. We'd definitely stay here again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely PERFECT House!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the house for a weekend with a group of friends as it was our wedding celebration party in Laguna and we were blown away by not only the beauty of the house and the view but how well Gay took care of us. I got to know Gay so well leading up to our stay it felt like she was family. When we arrived she took care of everything and even gifted us with bottles of wine for our celebration. The house is so amazing the pictures do not do it justice. We would highly recommend this to anyone and we hope to return again soon! Thanks Gay!

Best Laguna home- walk to everything!

  • 5 of 5

A dream come true! The kitchen is expansive with an opening to a courtyard, equipped with a great BBQ grill and ping pong table. Home is perfect for entertaining and enjoying family meals together, whether you choose to eat indoors or out. The sound of the ocean in the two upstairs bedrooms is a heavenly way to sleep. The front lanai is perfect for breakfast and happy hour cocktails. I just wish I could live here! You can walk to coffees, shopping and the ocean. We look forward to next time. Owner, Gay, is the most responsive, dependable and fun person to work with.
