Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This property is uniquely situated only steps from the beach, but high up enough to offer both panoramic ocean views and views of the coastline and city lights. With floor to ceiling windows on the second and third floors, you can watch the sun set over the ocean while eating, sleeping, cooking, showering, watching TV or lounging around enjoying the ocean breeze. Wintertime features frequent whale sightings, and dolphins are seen frolicking past year round. It's not all about the view though, since gorgeous Victoria Beach is only steps away where you can enjoy being in the water as much as staring at it. Victoria Beach is known for volleyball and skim boarding, and provides great access for snorkeling, kayaking or stand-up-paddle boarding amongst beautiful reefs and kelp forests. You can also just relax and dip your toes in the sand. It is a fantastic and friendly neighborhood, and a great place to live year round.

Our three story “beach house” features three bedrooms and three and a half baths. It is not a mere rental property, but our home six months out of the year, so we have taken the utmost care to make it an enjoyable place to live. The interior is beautifully decorated with classic modern furnishings, so it is contemporary but cozy at the same time. The ocean views are stunning from almost every room in the house, so you may not want to leave, but the beach (where we go almost every day) is less than a block away.

You enter on the middle floor, which contains the living room, dining area, kitchen, powder room and garage. It also features a deck with outdoor dining for eight. One floor up is the master suite, which also features a deck with chaise lounges and table for two. The floor below the main is the guest bedroom and office (each with full bath), and back patio with gas fire pit and garden.

The house is bright and airy. Two gas fireplaces (and central heating) keep it warm in the winter months, and two retractable awnings and the ocean breeze keep it cool in the summer. Almost the entire wall opens up in the master bedroom, so you can feel at one with the ocean even when not down at the beach.

This is an ideal spot for couples, families or a very small group of friends. Please check our calendar below for available dates and rates. 31 day minimum stay is required.

About Andrew Castellano

Both Orange County natives, we have lived in Laguna Beach for almost 20 years. Having recently discovered that it is equally enjoyable to live in the mountains, we now spend the winter and summer months in Idaho. The other half of the year we are lucky enough to live here in this beautiful home. We hope that you will feel at home here as well, make friends with our wonderful neighbors, enjoy the beach and come back to stay often!

Andrew Castellano purchased this house in 1999

Why Andrew Castellano chose Victoria Beach

The views are amazing and the lifestyle is great. Victoria Beach is a great neighborhood full of active people who love the outdoors and love the ocean. The local beach is gorgeous and somewhat secluded, making it less crowded than the downtown beaches. The back of the house faces due west, so it has incredible views of the sunset and Catalina Island.

What makes this house unique

If you think sunsets over the ocean are great, wait until you see the full moon setting over the sea!

Beautiful Home for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home sold me on its beautiful views and great design incorporating the outdoors and light throughout. And it was all that. But the true and full sense of this home must be seen and felt in person. I truly fell in love with waking up there and found a great sense of peace just roaming from one amazing space to the next for 2 weeks. We really enjoyed the distinctive decor and the luxury and openness of the kitchen, baths and the master bedroom. While the location is great to make a super quick drive to Laguna Beach shops or even Dana Point for ferry ride to Catalina, we actually spent much of our holidays just watching the whales, dolphins, paddleboarders and sailboats go by...sipping coffee or wine or just catching up on the decks. The sunset ritual was also amazing and the house takes on a different mood as the light changes thru the day. The only concerns with this house would be to know that like a lot of places in Laguna it is on steep streets and the walk to and from beach (which isn't very far but many steps) is not for bad knees. Go for the incredible views, the modern touches and luxury, and the natural peace you'll find there. It's a great choice. The owners were exceptionally service-focused and top notch on everything.
