About Paul B

I take great care of my property and to make sure guests have a great experience. I live here part of the year and as such, spared no expense

Paul B purchased this house in 2004

Why Paul B chose Laguna Beach

I supervised the remodel of this property and did so for myself with an eye on decor and comfort while paying strict attention to detail. The location is amazing as you are just north of the town, about a 12 minute walk, a 2 minute walk to the trolley, thus affording you easy no hassle access to Newport Beach, Crystal Cove, Fashion Island and the 73 Freeway which leads you to the 405.

What makes this house unique

Besides the overall charm and location of the property, the home offers radiant floor heating for the chilly mornings as well as upgraded mini split air conditioning/heating units for each room. Laguna does get hot at times, particularly from late May to September. Parking is also a major issue and there is no shortage of it on this property, besides being extremely private yet just a stones throw from one of the best beaches in Laguna, Crescent Bay

Excellent location in Laguna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great spot to stay in Laguna Beach. Easy walking distance to the beaches, very close to the grocery store, and very quite! The views were excellent, and we enjoyed our stay tremendously! Paul was very communicative and easy to work with. Thanks for squeezing in our last-minute vacation!

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently rented Paul's property property in Laguna Beach and can honestly say it was spectacular.

Paul the host was wonderful to deal with he promptly answered all questions & was very welcoming We booked the property from Australia and even with the terrible time difference Paul made himself available at all hours to answer all our questions and made tho booking process so easy

The property is clean and well equipped with everything you need provided the owner has thought of every detail to make this home wonderful all the furniture and equipment is of a very high standard.

This home is just beautiful and the ocean views from the upstairs are breathtaking.

The location could not have been better a very short walk to the beach and close to a large supermarket cafe's and restaurants the tram stop is right at the end of the street with a free tram service which services most of Laguna Beach.

Thanks Paul for letting us use your fantastic home.

Awesome Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

Rented this property for a month on behalf of relatives that came in from the East Coast. Outstanding property in a great location, convenient to the Laguna trolley and steps to the beach. The house is meticulously maintained and has everything you need. As it was a little beyond my budget, the host was very accommodating in renting the upstairs only at a reduced rate while still providing downstairs laundry access upon request. The upstairs has great ocean views and was more than enough for 3 people. Really appreciate working with Paul who is a very gracious host. 5 stars +

Relaxation in Laguna

  • 5 of 5

Booked a month as I was having construction done on my place in San Diego. Property was well above and beyond expectations. Having 2 very functional levels were great and both were immaculate. Walked to Crescent Bay beach almost daily which is a 4 minute or so walk to the sand. Great location. Air conditioning came in handy. Paul was great as my work was completed 3 days early and he prorated a refund with only a day notice.

In my opinion, this review can be summed up with one word- NO! There are better properties and easier people to deal with. You might also stand a better chance of getting your security deposit back.

Owner's Response: The lease was arranged by the reviewers’ wife along with a friend who were supposed to be splitting the time along with 2 teenage athletes in training, each a child of the 2 women, a total of 3 occupants at all times. The reviewer was not an authorized occupant. For the second half of the rental, the reviewer joined his wife, the 2 teenagers, one of whom was his child, as well as 3 other occupants, for a total of 7. Based upon the assurance of 3 occupants at all times, I extended a discounted rate of 275 per day. My utility bills were through the roof, the water coming in at twice the ordinary with similar bills for the electric and gas. I have a strict limit of 5 occupants, though I will allow 6 if there is a young child or infant involved. Besides misrepresenting the number of occupants, they initially failed to meet the 2nd payment installment prior to occupancy, and I sent them back their money sensing a difficult rental. Ms. G called me 3 times pleading me to reinstate the rental and I finally gave in. Of the $2000 security, I retained $650 due to the number of occupants, $125 for cleaning, and $140 for excess utility usage. The balance of the $2000 was promptly returned. I should note that $650 is substantially less than I would have charged for even 6 occupants, and in this case there were 7. Incidentally, they raved about the property before and right after departure. I even overlooked some small damage that was evident upon inspection as I texted the wife a few photos en route to the airport. Integrity and honesty counts, and there was very little of it here.
