Mystic Hills House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom 2 bath cottage on a quiet cul-de-sac with great ocean views

Welcome to our Laguna Beach home. This is a terrific spot to enjoy a relaxing vacation in Laguna. There are three bedrooms (queen beds in two of them, two singles in the third), two bathrooms, and an extra room we use as a guest bedroom when we have visitors. The kitchen, dining room, living room, one bedroom and front deck all have nice ocean views; the other rooms look out over the lush garden. There are hardwood floors throughout.

The kitchen and bathrooms are all recently renovated with new appliances, granite, slate and tile. The backyard is fully landscaped with a large patio area, BBQ and marquee. We have broadband internet as well as full cable television, stereo etc. The community pool and tennis courts are 1 minute walk at the end of the street. There is parking in the driveway for two cars (as well as on-street parking), plus beach chairs, towels and boogie boards.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

About Chris Thompson

We are a Canadian-Americans family who split our time between our main mountain home in Mammoth Lakes, CA and our now second home in Laguna Beach.

Why Chris Thompson chose Laguna Beach

We fell in love with Laguna Beach when we first moved here from Canada in the early '90's. And we fell in love with this house as soon as we saw it. It has the benefits of being far enough from the energy of the beach and restaurants to be quiet, high enough to have good ocean views, yet close enough to walk to everything in town or the beaches.

What makes this house unique

We like how the house is close to the action of Main Beach, but still a quiet, private retreat. In the mornings I like to sit in the green of the backyard with a cup of cofee and enjoy the sound of the birds. And in the late afternoon this is the perfect spot to put dinner on the BBQ, kick back with a cocktail and enjoy the sunset from the redwood deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the quiet street and easy walk to town. We also loved being able to enjoy sunset drinks on the deck. A truly wonderful time. Thanks.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to stay at Chris place in December, for our vacation in Laguna Beach. The location of the house if wonderful : 10 minute walk to main beach, lap pool just around the corner, and a short stroll to all the shops and restaurants. That said, it is on a very quiet dead end street, lined with lovely houses and gardens.

The house inside is very very well maintained, spacious, bright, clean and comfortable, and we really enjoyed spending most of our evenings in its very relaxing atmosphere. The kitchen was a pleasure to use, with very nice pots and pans, and everything else you might need.

The front deck has a beautiful ocean view and we enjoyed watching the sunset almost every night. The back garden is a lovely place to have coffee in the morning, and enjoy the morning sun.

Chris was wonderful to deal with right from the start, very responsive and quick to reply, making sure we had all we needed.

We only had one regret : not being able to stay an extra month...

Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem in one of the most amazing places. Laguna Beach has all of the features and luxuries of a Southern California beach community, without the pretense. I love that the houses are all unique, from funky cottages to the behemoth mansion, and everything in between. The people have a casual attitude and the shops have a very approachable characteristic. You are also close enough to do day trips to San Diego, Del Mar, Carlsbad (Legoland), Orange County cities and Los Angeles.

This house is special as it gives you easy walking access to downtown and Main Beach, but it also gives you the serenity of a peaceful retreat. The street is quiet and you have ample parking (a nice thing to have in Laguna) and the backyard is tranquil. The views from the front deck confirm why you want to stay in a beach town. The kitchen/dining area is large enough for the whole family to hang out while making meals and meals can easily be transferred to the deck at the spur of the moment to enjoy the sunsets.

There’s plenty of sleeping configurations to suit our family. The house is quaint, but very comfortable and the house is stocked with the items we need to have a comfortable vacation. We can’t wait to go back next year

The Perfect California Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our three-month stay. The house itself was very well maintained and outfitted with a well-equipped kitchen, a front deck with an ocean view, and a spacious backyard. The location was fantastic -- right next to a community pool good for laps and children, and a quick walk to downtown with a library, community center (with lots of children's classes), restaurants, grocery stores, and the beach. Chris the owner was extremely helpful. The only awkward thing about the house is that you have to walk through one of two bedrooms or through the backyard to get to the master bedroom in the back of the house, but in the end this was a small inconvenience for all the benefits this house offered. We hope to return soon for another great stay!

Fabulous Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family has spent many happy days in this home. Highlights include preparing dinners in the large open kitchen, eating inside or out overlooking the ocean, margaritas on the deck, short strolls to downtown or to Main Beach, tennis at the courts only a block away, and relaxing with a book in the back yard, knowing that the kids couldn't escape. Multiple sleeping options including the four twins worked well for our family since our group often varies

Laguna Life

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this property for over 10 years, it is our home away from home while in California. We love being part of the Laguna Life.

The house is newly decorated in 2013 and is pleasantly modern and uncluttered. The kitchen is bright and a joy to work in. A friendly neighbour is knowledgeable about the house and very helpful if any issues arise.

We also enjoy the balcony with it’s Ocean views, cooling breezes and large shade tree. We watch for the “Green Flash” nightly as the sun disappears into the Pacific. Sometimes we believe that we actually see it.

The house is centrally located to town and we always enjoy walking down to town for coffee & a stroll on the Beach.

Laguna is a very easy town to mellow into and live like a local. We enjoy the Art Galleries and all the shops in town. the Saturday AM Market is a must.

Trader Joe’s is 10 minutes north on the Coast highway sat Crystal Cove, and the Outlets are less than an hour south at Carlsbad.

I would highly recommend this property and Laguna Beach as a great home base for a California visit.
