About Joe Dvoracek

We are Second generation property owners.

Joe Dvoracek purchased this house in 1980

Why Joe Dvoracek chose Laguna Beach

My wife's family had one 'must have' when moving to Laguna beach .....the home has to be on the beach side of pacific coast highway , kids and PCH don't work ! We have parking, which in Laguna is Hugh ....nothing worse than going out for the day only to return home and have to drive around the neighborhood to find a spot to park ! The ocean is a 60 second walk from our driveway and upon your return from the beach we have an outdoor shower,and when evening comes we are WEST facing which is a must if you enjoy sitting out on one of our two upper decks and watching the sun set. North Laguna is the quite side of Laguna , we are located in crescent bay which is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in California and if your coming to enjoy tide pools full of fun sea creatures your in the right place or if your a walker or jogger you can use Heisler parks trail along the ocean or if hiking is your thing the trail head is 3 blocks up that takes you to town....all out our front door.

What makes this house unique

Laguna Beach is considered to be one of the premiere vacation locations in all of Southern California with access to the arts (home to the world famous Pageant of the Masters), ocean recreation, sporting and amusement events. Our home is custom build by a well known architect and furnished with custom furniture and finishes we take great pride in our home and rent it knowing that it is maintained to the highest level and equipped as your home would be ....this is not a weekend rental as we rent once a month and hope that this is a memory maker for all who visit and our end goal is that you come back and we end up with 12 great family's a year that consider this there home away from home !

Amazing Home in a Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this amazing home. Even though we live in Orange County, we love staying here for many reasons. 1. Being able to watch gorgeous sunsets over Catalina Island every evening from the living room sofa; 2. The one minute walk to beautiful Crescent Bay; 3. Daily walks through Heisler Park to Laguna Main Beach; 4. Exploring the many tide pools; 5. Taking the free Trolley to downtown, which has a stop right across the street from house; 6. Having a driveway large enough for our guests to park on; 7. Having beach towels, chairs, toys, cooler and umbrellas available for use; 8. An outdoor shower to rinse off the sand after playing at the beach… the list goes on! We had a couple rainy days this time, so it was nice to sit by the fireplace with a good book….from the bookshelves downstairs which have many to choose from. Joe is very accommodating, and Robb lives a few doors away, if we were ever to need anything. Thanks Joe, Judy and Robb. We are already looking forward to staying again next year!

Great Laguna Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our family vacation! Kayaking the coves, relaxing on the balcony (ies), playing on the beaches, riding the trolley to Rubys! This home will not disappoint anyone! Very well stocked, clean, and actually the photos hide the "WOW" you actually feel when you get there! Lots of closet space! WiFi works great. Backyard was a bonus for the kids to play in the grass. We will look forward to our next trip here!

We have visited Laguna many times, this will be one of the great memories. Thanks Joe, Judy, and Robb.

Well equipped hi- end home steps to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the most luxurious home we have rented in the four years we have been traveling to Ca from the East Coast for vacation. The items that stood out to me with regards to amenities were the smart tv, wifi, surround sound with pandora, outside shower and driveway. Parking is insane in Laguna and being able to pull in after shopping at the grocery store or to unload after going to another local beach is tremendously appealing to me. With that said, people will try to park and block part of the driveway... Luckily we noticed the two occassions it occured and made the people move their cars. The bedrooms in this home are large and have ample if not more than enough closet space... The downstairs den was amazing because the kids could hang down there while the adults sat on deck listening to music or talking in main living room. Also, was nice to have some outside space for the kids to run around... They could go outside and not have to play in the street which, was busy at times and steep.

One thing that was tough was the walk down to the beach... It is steep. Our kids did it but it was very steep and i was a smidge worries our youngest might slip bc there also is alot of sand on the walkway.

One helpful item might be some type wagon to get the gear down and back from the beach... nothing else negative really... Oh and one thing that was really all- class was they had two passes to the saw dust festival and to pageant of the masters~ very nice... We used both...saved us some cash! Property manager a few homes away but never intrusive only around if we needed him! Theres so much more you get with this home that you dont in others homes i could go on n on...

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely perfect for exploring Laguna Beach. It is steps from the ocean and it is a lovely stroll to town where there are great restaurants and shops. The house itself is lovely with spectacular views. We were oh so comfortable here and our neighbor, who acted as our concierge, was so helpful. We would recommend this home highly and would plan to stay here again on our next trip to southern California.

Fantastic property, accommodations, location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the absolute pleasure of staying in this house on a couple of our trips to California. This immaculately clean property is truly a home-away-from-home featuring attractive and comfortable furnishings, bedding, linens, etc. (Such comfortable beds!) The open, ample, well-outfitted kitchen´s open-to-living-and-dining-space design allows us to spend time together cooking, eating, relaxing and talking (And, the kids can play video games!). All rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and glowing with natural light. Be sure to sit on one of the decks for coffee or cocktails to relax and take in the views of the Pacific.....When it is time to play on the beach or take a leisurely sunset stroll on the sand, we absolutely adore the proximity to the cove-like Crescent Beach. It feels so private and is so well kept. Literally, we walk to the beach in a few minutes--no hassling traffic or paying for parking, no need to worry about forgetting something at the can pop up and get it in a jiffy. Everything we needed for our stay was at the house, the property owners are wonderful to work with always feels like home.

Car: necessary

We are located in crescent bay voted the #1 bay in California . We have great tide pools to explore ,our bay is known for stand up paddle boarding ,kayak adventures out to picturesque bird and seal rock and morning walks into town thru Heisler park ...until you see it you won't believe it ,it's a beautiful park along the ocean that has a sea side trail. When staying in our home you will enjoy parking ...glorious parking , something not found in beach community's and if you prefer not to drive there's a trolley/commuter bus to whisk you the one mile distance to town that stops 75' from our drive way . FYI we never drive when were in town the trolley is excellent for getting around and free in the summer! We can direct you to dive lessons , paddle board excursions , kayak tours or the best hiking in Orange County. And the food .....Laguna has some of the best restaurants in Orange County , weather your looking for street side Mexican (la Serena grill)or probably the best fish in California (Zulu cafe) we will work hard to get you connected to make your stay memorable. I could go on and on but the most important thing to remember when staying at the beach in California is you want to be below pacific coast highway ,which we are and off street parking is a must ! So if you want to come play at the beach email us and we will get your stay in Laguna booked .
