This is one of the last few REAL Laguna Beach oceanfront Estates! Family owned for over 50 years. Private Home behind Security Gate. 125 feet of Private Oceanfront. Private steps to an intimate beach. Pool and pool house. Private cliff deck looking over spectacular whitewater coastal views.

Why JJ Joseph chose Woods Cove

After 60+ years of of our Family residing on this most spectacular property, we have decided to share its treasures with a select clientele. Pictures and descriptions can never do this property justice! We have had much enjoyment with the appreciation of our past guests. Many new friends we have made and many fond memories we have been able to provide to our guests.

What makes this estate unique

One of the last very few Original Laguna Estate properties. On nearly an acre of private behind private gate oceanfront. This property boasts 120+ feet of private coastline. Views and seclusion that very few properties can offer.

Beautiful spot overlooking the ocean

  • 4 of 5

The location of the home is just unbelievable. The view from inside the home and the back yard never got old. The private pool was a real bonus. You could lay out beside the pool, looking out at the view. It is located right on the PCH and catching a trolley bus into town is very easy. The home itself left a lot to be desired. It is very outdated and that part of it is ok; however, the house was not cleaned very well. It also has a pretty bad ant infestation. JJ (the owner) lives next door and is very responsive to any problems. He was courteous and helpful. Laguna Beach is our favorite place to visit.

A most wonderful stay in a classic home that opens you to the ocean beyond.

  • 5 of 5

JJ is a wonderful host for your stay in a beautiful home on their family estate perched directly above the gorgeous Pacific. The house is spacious, warm and comfortable, a true classic of neo-modern architecture. The master suite seems to have come straight out of Hollywood. We ended up extending our stay a couple of times. The experience is just that wonderful. Watching the white water and venturing down the pathway to the sea... !

Give yourself a real treat and visit this unique and elagent beauty!

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Home was very comfortable and great location close to downtown. JJ was a great host. Loved watching for dolphins every morning while drinking my coffee on the private patio. I can't wait to return!!

We took our family to Laguna for Christmas last year and stayed in this wonderful home for the holidays. it did not disappoint! Great location, we never had to rent a car. Walk able to all shops or a short Uber ride. The views were stunning! I am happy to say, we will for sure go back! A welcome home and fabulous host! Thanks for the memories!

Car: recommended

Located just a few minutes south of downtown Laguna Beach just far enough to enjoy privacy and seclusion, but close enough to enjoy all the attractions and art galleries and finest dining within a few minutes. A block away from a 'trolley stop'. Ride the Free open air trolley's that run from the end of June to the beginning of September. They are a stress free way to get around town during the summer rush. No need to worry about driving and parking. Don't miss the Pageant of the Masters and the Sawdust Festival, Laguna is famous for!
