About the property

Duplex, 2 units each with 2 Bedrooms, 1+ Baths, each sleeps 4-6

Our Laguna home is an up/down duplex currently rented as two separate units. Each features separate, private entrances, decks and garages.  Don't hesitate to contact us if you need help deciding which unit is best for your group. The units can also be rented together to accommodate larger families and groups.

During your stay, you'll be just six blocks from the white sands of Laguna Beach and breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean. With each relaxing crash of the waves, you'll feel your stress, anxiety, and tension evaporate into thin air.

Enjoy lazy days on the beach, reading in the garden, and sunsets every night on the deck or in the dining room. Like hitting the town? Head out and enjoy the fabulous charm of our city. Casual and fine dining, shopping, art galleries, live music and theatre are all close by. 

For the adventurers, Disneyland is a quick 30-minute drive (perfect for families with kids), and a trip south to lovely San Diego or north to LA is just as easy. Laguna Beach truly is the perfect location, no matter how you enjoy spending time at away from home.

The moment you step through the door, you'll notice that this home is ready with all the comforts of home. The upper unit featured here includes two bedrooms and one and a half baths in 1500 sq ft. Whether you want to prepare a gourmet meal, blend some margaritas, or snuggle up in a cozy chair to read, we have you covered. Ocean breezes and ceiling fans help ensure a peaceful, rejuvenating sleep on Hilton-quality beds and mattresses.

Every room in the house has spectacular ocean views, with the exception of the rear bedroom which overlooks the garden. The well stocked kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals, and living and sun rooms offer many comfortable places to relax. There is a sleeping loft and sleeper sofa available for extra guests or sleeping flexibility. The gas BBQ and private rear casita overlook the garden. An office area with multi-function printer off the master bedroom and wireless internet lets you stay in touch. Flat screen TV's in the living and master bedroom provide for your entertainment pleasure. A washer and dryer is provided. Garage parking is available on the upper street.

Everything you need to enjoy fun in the sun is here, including beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and a full complement of beach toys.

The availability calendar and photos here refer to the Upper unit, but you may want check out the garden unit at, or at VRBO 798020. The 900 sq. ft. garden unit features two bedrooms, one bath, and an open-layout living/dining room with sliding doors that open to a large private view deck. It has a private entrance and a single car garage accessed from the lower street.

Don't miss out - our delightful home is just what you've been looking for.

Also, don't be worried by the lack of reviews. Since online reviews became the norm, Laguna Beach imposed a minimum 31 day stay. As a result, we have been using the house more ourselves and and have had several longer term renters, leading to fewer reviews.

About Tracy or Chris

Chris and I are house fans! In addition to our Laguna beach house, we manage ski condos in Mammoth Lakes, and longer term rentals in Phoenix, Arizona.

Tracy or Chris purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Tracy or Chris chose Laguna Beach

We love our beach cottage. It is close enough to walk to the beach, but far enough up the hill that we have these fabulous views with sunsets every night. The house, built in 1920, was one of the original houses on the hill, so we have tried to maintain the original character while updating it with today's comforts.

What makes this cottage unique

Beat the Heat! Total relaxation is just a click away.

Are you dreaming of pristine ocean views, cool ocean breezes, and year-round sunshine? 

Well, our beautiful property has it all, and so much more. Welcome to the good life...

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say??? We both loved our stay on the hill with the stunning Catalina views! Your attention to detail really made our stay so much more enjoyable. We would recommend your lovely slice of paradise to anyone and we look forward to future Laguna adventures.

Great views in a beautiful city!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 year old and I stayed in the upper unit mid July to mid August. Upon arrival, we were pleasantly surprised by the view! You have a panoramic view of the ocean that is just amazing. We also felt it was a bit more spacious than the pictures depicted!

The unit had everything we needed for our month stay. It’s in a great location. We never walked the 6 blocks to the beach but you could have. We just didn’t want to tackle the hill with our 2 year old. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here! It did get a bit hot with the higher than usual temps and no A/C, but I don’t think you would find central air really anywhere in Laguna. We managed with fans and it always cooled down nicely at night. Also to note, the beds are extremely comfortable!!

One of the best views in the world.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a month here with my wife, 3 year old daughter and 1 year old son. We watched the sunset every night and it helped take our minds off the slab leak in our home. The hosts are very attentive and the neighbors are very kind. Only wish we could have spent more time relaxing and not working on our home.

Unbelievable View, Wonderfully Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I always enjoy visiting Laguna and this clean and cozy unit is perfect for the three of us. We've stayed in this unit several times over the years; love the easy living. Sunset drinks on the deck overlooking the best ocean view in Laguna isn't to be missed. The owners keep the kitchen well stocked with spices and other supplies which greatly simplifies shopping and cooking. Comfortable beds and high thread count linens make for a great sleep. We feel at home when we're there. Can't wait to go back.

Great place to stay in Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

My 9 year old daughter and I had a wonderful few days staying in Laguna beach in this great garden cottage. It's central to all sorts of things to do in and around town and offers lovely views up and down the coast. My daughter really enjoyed the patio and plants in the garden - and of course the nearby beaches. The accomodations are really comfortable, cosy and well appointed. Would recommend very highly.
