About Deborah Kosmont

We are a fun and adventure seeking memory making family of five. Two girls and boy. We love to travel anytime we can. But Laguna has always drawn us back. We live in Monterey, california full-time. This house used to be our full time residence until we needed to relocate to northern California.

Deborah Kosmont purchased this house in 2001

Why Deborah Kosmont chose Orange County

Our two year search around the orange county area landed us here. We narrowed down to Laguna Beach and then further down to North Laguna. We wanted to be able to walk to town and to the beaches. It was love at first sight we new right away this was home. The sound of the fountain the beautiful garden and the true one of a kind character of the home. It is a home with a heart and a soul that speaks to you when you arrive. It was important for us to have a great deal of indoor outdoor living spaces and the pool was a bonus since we new we wanted to have children.

What makes this house unique

The Streets in North Laguna are beautiful with old trees and a unique feel. In the summer Laguna can become very crowed so being on the north end of town can give you easy access up PCH to Newport beach or the freeways and airports. Perfect place to vacation anytime of the year.

Perfect Laguna Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Storybook House has so many amenities, everything you would need, and you can walk to the beach or swim in the little pool. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a lot of room in the front and back yard to find time to yourself. My family has stayed there three years in a row and are looking forward to returning next year.

Charming Home

  • 4 of 5

Thank you Deborah for sharing your charming home with us! We had a fabulous stay and were extremely happy with our choice in your home for lodging. The layout of the home worked perfect for 3 moms and 5 tweens each room just as charming as the next. We enjoyed our morning walks 3-4 blocks towards the beach and into downtown, our lunches at Wahoo Tacos, Tommy Bahamas, The Montage and girls surfed right on Laguna Beach. Evenings were filled with beautiful sunsets, cooking in the quaint kitchen and dinners within walking distance downtown our favorite was Broadway. Fabulous home with many amenities in a quiet area of Laguna. Thank you for all of your recommendations we truly had a wonderful vacation. Until next time!!! xoxo Kristy DuPree

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The house really did live up to its fairy tale description, and we didn't want to leave at the end of the week! Deborah was very accommodating in providing clear instructions for the property and everything went smoothly. It is a great family home with a living room for relaxing, dining area for entertaining and the pool is an added bonus. There was ample room for 8 adults and very comfortable sleeping arrangements. It's also only a 10min walk from the beach and a couple of restaurants, which is convenient. I will highly recommend this rental to my friends and family.

This home is unbelievable. Very comfortable and very useful. It is so nice to have a place to go that is so nice, away from the beach but close enough to walk to the beach. We have visited this house twice now and it has been excellent both times. More than enough room for 2 families.

We are located in north Laguna a short walk (2.5) blocks to the beach and to (6 blocks) downtown. Our Favorite sushi place is a couple blocks away, 242 sushi fusion. My Kids love walking to main beach spending the day playing in the sand, at the park and then grabbing a pizza at the Pizza Lounge. Of course my husband and I prefer to go across the street to Tommy Bahamas or Nicks, but the kids usually get their way. Plan on coming in the summer to see the world famous Pageant of the Masters and include an evening at the nearby sawdust festival. Take the trolly down to stop 18 and grab a drink at the Montage overlooking the beautiful sunset. Make time for Disneyland if you have kids. Kids of all ages will enjoy Sea world and the Famous San Diego Zoo.
