"This was a stunning house and exactly as described. We were six people, two couples with our two 22 year old daughters. The house was modern, clean, simply and beautifully decorated, with a state of the art kitchen. There was a lovely view of Laguna and the ocean, from the upstairs balcony, as shown in the property photo. The two master bedrooms were very large, each with a King bed and high end bedding. I have to say it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! The downstairs large bedroom has a patio with a hot tub, but there is no curtain on the widow (there is an outside wall for privacy) and our friends who stayed in that room had issues with the property light in the evening and daylight in the morning.The third bedroom, called the meditation room is on the small side and dark (with one small window). We put our daughters in there, with an air mattress provided by Jeff that was surprisingly thick and plush. Probably not a great option for older adults, but for young adults, teenagers or kids it was okay. There is a wonderful park about a block and a half from the house. There is a paved loop perfect for power walking and relatively flat, or miles and miles of hilly dirt trails. I even spotted a rattle snake (from a distance!). The house is high up in Laguna Hills in a quiet neighborhood, so be prepared to use your car to and from the beach, town etc. There is bus and trolley service if you don't want to bother with the car, but we stuck with driving. We did not get to meet Jeff, the owner, however, he made check in and check out a breeze, left a guest manual with all the information we needed, and was reachable in an emergency. One of the great advantages of the house for us, was being able to spend family time cooking great meals in a beautiful setting. We were even able to have a couple of family members who lived in the area over for dinner. The house is incredibly light with lot's of glass and the living room is comfortable and a great place for a small group to enjoy being together. There was a large gas grill on the upstairs patio making barbecuing really easy and fun, and the kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, glassware, pots and pans etc. and even great spices and condiments. I would highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone who wants a relaxing Laguna beach vacation. We hope to make a return visit at some point. Thank you Jeff for a very special experience!"
