About the property

WELCOME to LAGUNA WOODS VILLAGE - the premier 55+ age-restricted gated Southern California community for active, resort style living. Just a 10 minute drive from the Laguna Beach coastline, your home-away-from-home is at an ideal location.


Light, bright, and airy, this second floor unit boasts great views of the surrounding rolling hillside communities, from both the living room and the master bedroom. Enjoy a scenic BBQ or spend a serene evening on the balcony. The spacious living area has an open floorplan connecting to dining room.

We take pride in making this unit clean, comfortable, and convenient. There is a California King bed in the en-suite master bedroom. A large desk and a full size bed occupy a second bedroom - making it suitable as an office and/or guest room. Both beds have pillow-top mattresses and down bedding. We use all white linens and towels so you can see how clean they are.

In case the view from sofa and comfort of bed cannot completely take you away from reality, a secured high speed WiFi network is available throughout the unit. There are HDTVs with cable channels in both living room and master bedroom. The laundry room is conveniently located across the hallway. A large elevator makes grocery shopping effortless. Clubhouse Five, which features a main lounge, billiard room, a swimming pool with aquatic exercise programs, is right around the corner.


Laguna Woods Village has some of the finest community facilities which include seven distinct clubhouses, one of which contains an 814-seat theater. The clubhouses have hobby and game rooms, meeting and billiard rooms, five large swimming pools, hot pools, lawn bowling greens, shuffleboard courts and two fully-equipped fitness centers. Clubhouse Four, the arts and crafts center, has professional equipment for jewelry making, sewing, woodworking, painting, photography, sculpturing and ceramics.

Laguna Woods Village is a golfer’s paradise. There are two professional courses: a challenging championship 27 hole course and a nine hole, 3 par, executive course. In addition, there is a golf driving range, practice putting greens and a chipping area.

The tennis complex is one of the most modern in all of Southern California, with its own clubhouse. There are ten tennis courts and four paddle tennis courts.

The equestrian center is second to none in all of Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Counties. Here you can board your horse or rent one for a nominal fee. Lessons, rides, and special events make the stables a fun place for young and old alike.

Shopping centers, restaurants, commercial businesses, houses of worship, Saddleback Memorial Hospital, and other medical facilities are in close proximity. Emergency and Fire personnel are minutes away. The community's FREE bus transportation service provides easy access to local businesses.


Escape to Laguna Woods Village and enjoy the nice weather, warm people, and resort-style amenities! Truly a vacation and lifestyle you won't forget soon and one that will have you returning year after year.

About Owner

We're James and Julia - long time residents of beautiful south Orange County. We've traveled near and far, enjoyed different sceneries and cultures, but at the end of the day, the sounds and scenes of the Southern California coast are still the closest to our heart! This is our future retirement home. We'd like to share it with you, and hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

Owner purchased this condo in 2014

Why Owner chose Laguna Woods

It has to be a challenge to find another active adult community like Laguna Woods Village in terms of climate, location, safety, and amenities - it's a lifestyle! We're not quite ready to downsize and move in full-time yet, but still like to experience what this community offers whenever we can. Living close by in south Orange County, we're blessed to be able to enjoy this part-time membership for now.

What makes this condo unique

We love the awesome views from this south-east facing unit and its proximity to Clubhouse Five where many classes and events take place. The building is high on a hill so evening time on the balcony is both breezy and private. The condo is in the more desirable newer side of the community and closer to Laguna Beach.

Absolutr Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and a real pleasure to return to after a day's adventure. Very peaceful and quiet, a good night's sleep was guaranteed.

The owners went to great lengths to ensure that our stay was most enjoyable and were available at all times. Also a great location and 10 minutes drive to Laguna Beach.

We would definitely stay here again

Gorgeous Views

  • 4 of 5

The panoramic view from this apartment's balcony is worth the price of admission all by itself. Put simply, it is spectacular. You are also literally feet away from Club House # 5, and the pool there will be calling to you every day. The owners go out of their way to make sure your needs are met. In our case, we wanted to go to a gym separate from Laguna Woods during our stay, and they tracked one down for us that met our needs perfectly. And the weather....unbelievable. Overall, a great vacation.

Very Nice First Exposure to Laguna Woods

  • 4 of 5

This was our first extended stay in Laguna Woods. This place was located very close to clubhouse 5 which had many activities such as concerts and dances. The pool at the clubhouse is saltwater and heated to 83 degrees. Some times a bit crowded to swim laps but most of the time fine. Very close drive to the ocean, town of Laguna Beach as well as San Juan Capistrano. Stores were very close as well as a variety of restaurants.

The only problem we had was a stuffed drain. This was due mostly to the age of the building. The owner had the problem taken care of within 24 hours and were very helpful with anything we needed. The place was clean and had a very nice gas BBQ grill on the deck. We felt very comfortable and settled in quickly. Deposit was returned within a week. Good value.
