Overview

Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Come for the incredible views and the world renowned climate….stay for the amazingly luxurious accommodations.

Set on a uniquely private lot the house was lovingly fully renovated. It is now configured with three large bedroom suites each with its own private full bath. The house was recently featured in Romantic Homes magazine.

Travertine steps lead you from the garage down through lush landscaping past a six-foot high waterfall to the entry patio furnished with Brown Jordan chairs, glass topped table and French baker’s rack. This private outdoor sitting area is perfect for casual lunches or cocktails.

As you enter the house your breath will be taken away as you gaze at the magnificent panoramic views of Catalina Island, San Clemente Island, and the Pacific. The house is situated high enough (five blocks above the beach itself) to provide spectacular views up and down

The entry level includes:

Dining room with a beautiful wrought iron glass topped table that can accommodate eight and breakfront fully stocked with fine china and glassware.

Wonderful French style tiled kitchen plus walk-in pantry. Appliances include:

•Subzero refrigerator/freezer

•Thermador gas cook top

•Dacor electric convection oven

•Bosch dishwasher

•French country style farm sink

Guest suite with premium outfitted queen sized bed, small reading nook with chandelier, LCD HDTV, and tiled bathroom featuring a soaking bathtub, marble topped sink in French style chest, and linen closet. Owned by an artist, beautifully decorated and filled with distinctive art, the living room comfortably seats eight with its two separate seating areas. The main area takes full advantage of the incredible views of Catalina Island due West and one can see as far North as Palos Verdes.

The smaller sitting area with custom built-ins is centered on the gas fireplace and its magnificent marble mantle. It also has a 37” LCD HDTV and controls for the sound system throughout the house.

The upper balcony accessed from the living room has unparalleled 180 degree views up and down the southern California coast. You’ll quickly understand why Laguna Beach is compared favorably to the French Rivera. The balcony has a glass railing that provides endless sunset and whitewater viewing. The space is perfect for al fresco dining with table and chairs and includes a natural gas stainless steel grill. It also has an antique day bed that is convenient for stretching out to read your favorite novel.

The entire lower level of the house comprises the master suite. The suite includes a desk area, sitting room area, bedroom, and a luxurious bathroom. The coffered ceiling sitting area has a 42' LCD HDTV and a comfortable leather sofa-bed and wing chairs centered upon an over-sized gas fireplace with wood carved mantle and granite surround and hearth. The bedroom which is located two steps above the sitting area has a California king-size bed, art deco love seat and 37” LCD HDTV. The spacious bathroom has a beautiful limestone and glass shower, separate toilet room with etched glass door, and his and hers closets. The desk area has a storage area with a printer hidden behind leather panel doors.

The third bedroom suite has its own private entrance and is perfect for parents or those desiring some space between themselves and the other guests. It is equipped with a 56' DLP HDTV with surround sound speaker system. It has a beautiful queen-size bed. The suite includes a full bathroom with tiled tub.

Wonderful, beautiful and delightful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous! The views are spectacular! The owners are very nice, flexible and easy to work with! The furnishings are beautiful, yet make you feel right at home! 5 minute drive to the main Laguna Beach which the kids loved. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation! We hope to be back soon!

Stunning views...a sanctuary overlooking pacific.

  • 5 of 5

Michael, the owner was a perfect host helping us with every detail every step of the way. We arrived late and tired the first day, greeted by a truly luxurious home perched on the laguna hills. We woke to an amazing view of the Pacific Ocean and never wanted to leave the property! It's truly a sanctuary!

We will definitely be back.

Fantastic Holiday Vacation

There is not much more we can say that hasn't already been said. Great location, beautiful home and excellent weather (never a guarantee in the Winter). Michael and Debbie were responsive and friendly. Can't wait to come back.

This is a beautifully decorated, custom home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is situated on a cliff with amazing views of the ocean and Catalina Island. We felt the neighborhood was very safe. Although the homes are relatively close together, the landscaping gives you a ton of privacy, especially in the front courtyard and on the lower deck. We couldn't believe how nicely decorated this home was for a rental--all the linens, dishes, appliances, are high end. The furniture is beautiful. If you have older children, this home is ideal. Our 19 year old stayed in the guest suite, which is separated by the courtyard. But with his window open, we could call his name from the main house without raising our voice at all and he could hear us. You can open the double French doors in the front of the home, and the double sliders in the back and get a fabulous breeze. No bugs, no noise. If we ever come back to California, we will definitely stay here. Thank you, MIke, for a wonderful family vacation!

Beautiful property in Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home away from home. The amenities such as sheets, towels, even the beach towels were top notch. We ate dinners on the patio overlooking the ocean and watching the sun go down. It was clean and lovely. The location is excellent and gorgeous but know that it is quite a way up a hill and driving is necessary almost anywhere. It can be walked but you might use some muscles you haven't used in a while. All communication was done directly through the owner which was efficient and pleasant. I felt like I was staying at a friend's house. Would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a spectacular stay in the end of April 2014. The house is that of a connoisseur. The location perched high above the sea has breathtaking views. The is a lovely breeze that blows right through the house, often scented with Jasmine, planted on the property. The decks are wonderful for sunning and relaxing.

The house is filled with comfortable, tasteful furnishings and wonderful original art. The kitchen has everything a gourmet chef would desire. Our favorite part was the master suite with its entire floor, and private deck. What a wonderful bathroom!

I recommend this property and we will certainly be back.
