A Dream Home, Dream Experience
We had the most wonderful vacation of our lives, this home is fabulous in every sense, the architecture, the interior, the views, the proximity to town, it was absolutely perfect. We felt right at home immediately, Jim met us upon arrival and could not have been more kind, he showed us how to use all the appliances in the home as well as gave us fantastic restaurant, grocery, and beach recommendations. We fell in love with the home, because the layout is superb - each bedroom is spread out over three floors allowing for maximum privacy. The kitchen has top of the line appliances and BBQ on the balcony allowed us to enjoy some amazing meals. The views are amazing - overlooking the ocean on a peaceful hillside nestled in the hills. The house is located on a quiet Cul de sac so there is no traffic or riff raff from traffic. As well, the home was immaculate, beautifully furnished, understated contemporary elegance. As well, when we decided to go to the beach the following day, Jim had every beach accessory one could want and more, from lounge chairs, to umbrellas to wetsuits, it made exploring the beaches easy and fun. The home is spacious and overall fantastic. We basically felt at home! Laguna beach is a wonderful community with many beaches and great restaurants. We hope to return yearly as there is no home that could match this fabulous experience.
Dreams Come True
This beautiful property met all our wants and needs. The views of the ocean and canyon are breath taking, and not only from the decks but also from the bedrooms, dining room, living room, pool room, and kitchen. There is plenty of space for gatherings (we had a pre-wedding party for 50), for family togetherness, or space to relax quietly.
The bedrooms are all very spacious, all connected to baths with a main level powder room as well. Enjoy the wonderful cross breezes from every room, every level.
The location is minutes from restaurants, beach, farmer's market, and shopping. There are endless opportunities to get exercise walking either to the town below or the hills above.
Our family would recommend this property to anyone. It truly helped make our dream come true.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit to our home. Our home is perfect for two guests (three of our visitors last year were couples) as well as families. Our home is very comfortable for families up to eight. We've recently installed a water softener and had the interior and exterior freshly painted. We have made over a dozen other smaller improvements to make sure our guests have as nice a visit as this couple from Arizona had.
Spectacular Laguna Beach Vacation Rental!
If you are looking for a home close to the beach in SoCal stop and rent this one. I spent the better part of two months looking at homes from San Diego to Newport Beach for a relaxing week with my wife and our three children. We own a vacation home in Florida that we also rent through VRBO so I am very familiar with the process and what to look for in a rental home. Our first inclination was to rent something directly on the beach but time and again I found these homes to be very close to each other – literally close enough to touch the house next door. I decided to look for something within walking distance of the beach but not on the beach. This home, nestled in the Mystic Hills section of Laguna Beach, looked incredible on VRBO and when we arrived we soon realized we had made the right decision.
The views from this home are spectacular; there are two decks that offer panoramic views of Laguna Beach and the Pacific. If you can’t be on the decks don’t be concerned though, an open floor plan and floor to ceiling glass windows will make you feel as though you are enjoying the outside view even when you are cooking in the kitchen. A kitchen, by the way, that is equipped with high end appliances – we limited our use of the Viking stove to pancakes but they came out great! And if you need to move inside at night when it gets a little chillier, fire up the gas fireplace in the living room or the master bedroom – all while still enjoying the view.
Each of the bedrooms offered great views but the upstairs Master was incredible. It has direct access to the deck and the same floor to ceiling glass. I woke up one morning thinking I was still in NY and then saw the previously mentioned view of the Pacific – an incredible way to start the morning.
The owner met us at the house and we met his wife in town coincidentally later in the week. Both of them are very personable. The reservation process was painless and we were met upon arrival and walked through the features of the house, at least when we weren’t stopping to stare at the view!
As I mentioned at the start of the review, we own a home in Florida that we rent on VRBO and one thing guests consistently say about our home is that their experience was every bit as good as what was portrayed in the listing. I can say the same of this home without reservation – in fact I don’t think a listing on VRBO can do it justice. We had a wonderful time.
We are constantly doing all we can to earn a review like this. This guest mentioned that the pictures on VRBO don't do this home justice! I'm not a very good photographer and plan on hiring a professional to take better pictures for you to really see this beautiful home.
Please consider this guest's comments when looking for a nice home to enjoy your Laguna Beach vacation.
Perfect Christmas get away
This past Christmas we were lucky enough to rent this fantastic house overlooking the ocean for three weeks. We rent several vacation properties every year through VRBO, and this house is our favourite to date. The house is spacious, well laid out, and tastefully decorated. The communal areas (living room and decks) are very comfortable for a group, and there is plenty of "escape space" when what is needed is privacy. The owners have gone to great effort to ensure that both basic amenities and "nice touches" are provided - bedrooms and bathrooms are very comfy and well equipped. We were comfortable and relaxed from the moment we walked in - and we were very sorry to leave three short weeks later.
The owner knew that we were hosting a family Christmas this year, and went well out of his way to ensure the house was dressed for the occasion. He left ornaments so we could decorate the house, put a wreath on the door and - in a very special gesture - strung Christmas lights around both decks. This made a huge difference in making the holiday special for us and for our guests. He was also very responsive, including coming over on Christmas eve to address a small maintenance issue. He was very proactive in checking to see if we needed additional supplies or kitchen equipment - and made sure that we had everything we needed.
The only issue we had with the house was the heat upstairs on sunny, warm days. Because of the direction the house faces, there is little that can be done about this. We mitigated by positioning the large deck umbrellas to block the sun, but the master bedroom in particular can get quite hot. But on balance, we loved the house and recommend it whole heartedly.
Thank you for the kind comments from this family visiting from Norway and Houston. I am having all of the windows tinted to help cut down on the heat produced by the sun. Heat reduction, privacy with a goal of not diminishing the outstanding view is our goal. We are confident this will help.
Wonderful Get-Away to Absolute Luxury
One of the best vacations we have ever had!! We arrived at the beautiful property to be warmly greeted by the owner and given a home tour and town briefing. This multi-million dollar home is perfect!! Lots of room, professionally decorated, and amazing views of the ocean and beach from every angle. We enjoyed the upper and lower balconies perfect for lounging and relaxing and watching the ocean. The sunken living room with big screen TV, fireplace crackling in the humidity free cool evenings, was a big plus for feeling totally relaxed. Close to main beach and all Laguna activities. Gourmet kitchen was a big plus for our family and the outside gas grill made for the perfect BBQ. We appreciated that beach umbrellas, boogie boards, and wet suits that came with renting this property. The home has a great multi-room sound system that can be operated by your i-phone. This was a perfect vacation and we would definitely come back to this home for more pampering and relaxation!!!
We are so glad we were able to accommodate this nice family with their last minute change of plans. We do all we can to make sure all of our guests enjoy their Laguna Beach vacation in our home and we are very glad to hear that this family from Virginia had a wonderful time.
Perfect Family Getaway
This is the perfect location for a family get away. There is more than enough space for everyone, and amenities that allow for you to feel at home and yet pampered at the same time. We brought our 2 children (aged 3 and 4), and our child care provider, and everyone had their personal space. Location was perfect, a short drive to the beach, and a twenty minute drive to great shopping. Local restaurants and the marine rescue center were really family friendly, and Disneyland was an easy day trip. For our family, this was both a vacation and business trip, and this rental property was perfect, allowing for work space (internet access, espresso/cappucino machine built in, that kept the motivation up), and lounging to occur at the same time. Ending the nights with diner on the balcony was perfect. We would definitely return, and strongly recommend for a young family.
Jennifer and Bruno from Calgary, AB Canada, thank you for a nice review. A brief explanation of distance to shopping...the town of Laguna Beach has some great shopping and is a 15 minute walk or a few minutes drive away. There are several other areas to shop. One of the nicest and larger shopping areas is Fashion Island. This is about a 20 minute drive away. Jenn and Bruno, we are so glad you and your family enjoyed your visit and we do hope you come back with your family soon!
Laguna Beach is the Riviera of Southern California. Beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants, fantastic art festivals, and incredible shopping is all walking distance from this modern home.
