LAGUNA BEACH GEM

Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This unique Laguna home is set on a beautiful half acre that backs up to a gorgeous pristine canyon. The house, built behind high walls, has a gated entry that opens into a quiet, secluded garden.

The kitchen, with it's granite island and six burner gas range, is a cook's paradise. We've outfitted our kitchen with the finest knives, cookware and dishes. A french door refrigerator with ice maker is located in the pantry next to a large wine cooler with separate storage for white and red. The bar on one side of the granite island is the perfect place to sip morning coffee while watching the news on the flat screen TV at the end of the kitchen.

Both the master bedroom and first guest room have king sized beds. The third bedroom is a queen. All the bedrooms have flat screen televisions with DVD players.

We stock beach equipment for our tenants, chairs, beach bags, towels, umbrellas and children's toys.

The house is light filled and airy with beautiful views in every direction. Look to the canyon and down to the sea or turn back to gaze at the flower filled garden courtyard with its bird bath and giant birds of paradise.

Alta Laguna Park is just up the hill from the house. There are six public tennis courts, biking and hiking trails, a baseball park, basketball courts and a terrific children's playground.

Our home offers the peace of a retreat but is only minutes away from downtown Laguna and the beaches.

Our second visit to the Laguna Beach Gem

My wife and I rented this delightful home for the second time in August 2013 and we enjoyed a wonderful month in Laguna Beach. We love the private courtyard, the ocean views from every major room, the superbly equipped kitchen and the comfortable furnishings. We just can't say enough about this beautiful property and the very accommodating owners... except that we've already reserved another visit!

We had a wonderful time in this home. The walking/biking trails are very close and the scenery is beautiful. The home is extremely comfortable and the owners are so very accommodating. We definitely will be returning. And, it is amazing to come back on Monday morning to a clean home, clean bedding and all the rest. Wonderful!

I can't say enough good things about this property. The location is great with wonderful views of the ocean and the canyon. We saw red tail hawks and hummingbirds each day and even a coyote one morning. The house itself is so well equipped with everything you could possibly ask for. The beds are super comfy and the kitchen is very well stocked. The gardens and the courtyard are absolutely beautiful and look like they are lovingly cared for. My family felt very much at home here and it made for a wonderful vacation experience.

This really is a Laguna Beach Gem

My wife and I discovered this wonderful property while vacationing in the area last year and immediately booked it for August 2011. Perched almost at "Top of the World" it proved to be even better than we had remembered. Photos don't do justice to the magnificent canyon and ocean views from almost every room and can't convey the serenity you feel when you enter the house through the gated garden (which our wire fox terrier quickly claimed as hers). The house has a great floor plan which easily accomodated our daughter and her family who joined us for two weeks, it was very comfortably furnished and superbly equipped. We called Wendy, the delightful owner, who had to awaken the Maytag repairman to fix one of the two, yes two, washers. When we spoke, she asked if either the hanging flower baskets in the courtyard or the live orchids in the house needed to be replaced. We've rented through VRBO many times and never been asked if it's time to replace the orchids. This really is a Laguna Beach Gem.

Our time at Wendy and Larry’s home made for the best summer ever. The house, the furnishings, the views, etc. etc. can’t be beat. If you like to cook you will LOVE the kitchen. We spent most of our time in there just hanging out (and eating and drinking ;-). Our two Scottish Terriers had a back yard to run and chase all the critters. The courtyard was very serene and we enjoyed all the potted herbs and vegetables that were there just for us! You won’t find another rental like it!
