Laguna Niguel House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + bachelor unit, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

You will find all the luxuries of vacationing without having to sacrifice the comforts of home in this breath-taking, 3,500 square foot, Laguna Beach house. Up on a bluff just 40 yards from the sand, watch the waves, surf and sand, or the beautiful sunsets and over 180 degree view. Better yet, walk just 75 yards to the private beach access down to the sand of Tablerock beach. The living room is decorated with high-end Tommy Bahama furnishings and has a beautiful fireplace. Located off the beach-side of the famed Pacific Coast Highway, this home is conveniently located, however, part of its charm lies in the fact that it is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Wrap-around balconies, with spectacular views, on the second and third floors will enhance your vacation experience. Here you can sit back in the deck chairs with cup of coffee or a cocktail and watch the waves crash and keep an eye out for whales and dolphins that frequently visit the cove. Famous restaurants are within walking distance, however, the fully equipped gourmet kitchen make leaving unnecessary.

The kitchen features a cooktop, double Thermador ovens, coffee maker, cappucino maker, waffle iron, panini maker and any other gadget you may be in need of. If you would rather cook outside, the balcony features a bbq. There is also a wet bar equipped with an ice maker, wine fridge, and all of the glassware to create mouth-watering cocktails and mixed drinks.

During the summer, there is a life guard station right on Tablerock Beach. Be sure to take advantage of the complimentary beach toys and chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, picnic baskets and umbrellas. Should you decide to stay in, you can curl up next to the fireplace and watch DirectTV's premium programming with all of the movie channels as well as high speed wireless internet, board games, DVDs and puzzles.

This is a great home for a family or multiple families, since, in addition to the two bedrooms with queen beds, there is also a tranquil spa-like master suite featuring a Cal king bed, sitting area overlooking the ocean, oversized tub with large window that overlooks the ocean, glass shower with dual shower heads and a 'rainfall' feature, a walk-in closet and a fireplace. There is a separate den (bedroom) right off of the master which has a trundle bed making into 2 twins, or one queen bed. In addition to the spacious top floors, the bottom floor features a private studio apartment with a kitchenette, dining area,

bathroom, trundle bed, private entry and patio. This house sleeps 10 comfortably, and there are additional air mattresses. Parking at the beach will not be a problem, as there are 5 dedicated parking spaces. Our guests always state that the pictures don't do our property justice. We are very confident that after you take your first trip to Secret Cove, you will make it a tradition to come back year after year!

About The Owner

Jim Martindale is the president of Martindale Commercial Real Estate, Inc. in Glendora. His dream has always been to have a home at the beach, and feels this is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Laguna Niguel

Laguna Beach has often been described as one of the most incredible beaches in the world by reviewers from publications such as Cigar Aficionado and Men's Journal. When a home became available in Laguna right off of the famous Pacific Coast Highway, my wife and I jumped at the opportunity to own a home in this dream location.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located literally steps from a beautiful secluded beach. Nothing beats waking up in the morning and watching crashing waves while enjoying a cup of coffee on the balcony. The free local tram services a stop just a few blocks from the home and has multiple drop off points which take you into the heart of Laguna. If you prefer to walk, it is a short stroll to art galleries, boutique shops, and fabulous restaurants. The grocery store is also very nearby so stocking the fridge or sneaking out for a bottle of wine when the mood hits is always convenient. There are also some wonderful public beaches that are accessible via the downtown area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When we first arrived we were overwhelmed by the amazing views that both the second and third stories had. It drove us to head to the beach right away. We walked down to the private access and had the beach almost to ourselves. The pictures we took on the rocky cliffs were so breathtaking we used them as our family's Christmas card.

The house was large but felt cozy, like a home away from home and had everything we needed including beach equipment and a stocked kitchen. It was a perfect getaway in every respect and worth every penny!

Perfect gathering place for our get away

  • 5 of 5
We rented for a get away for 12 people and three families. Our kids were varying ages. The house was clean, well appointed, and had plenty of parking. There were games and movies which we enjoyed. The view is spectacular, really breathe taking. The kitchen was perfect for cooking for our group. Plenty of spices and the basics made it easy. Other houses I have rented in the past have had much less. There was a pool table in the garage that the older kids enjoyed. The bar-b-q was convent and used many times. The owner was easy to contact, left useful reading material in the house and had open communication for questions. The beach you can walk to has very steep stairs but is lovely and cool for climbing on the rocks, checking out crabs and the like. Not great for swimming for little ones but we just drove down the road. Plenty of towels both for the beach and linens for the house. The owners have clearly thought out what guests enjoy for a having a relaxing vacation.

Perfect for Large Family Gatherings

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a beach vacation spot that would allow us to host our elderly parents, keep our young children (ages 4 and 1), entertained, fed, and napped, and also entertain various groups of aunts, uncles, and cousins. This house worked perfectly in a lot of ways.

1) The views were breathtaking, especially from the master. This place is very well-located for panoramic views, close enough for the full sounds and smells of the ocean to fill the house, and on a very quiet side street with no noise pollution at all.
2) The layout worked wonderfully for us. We had separate bedrooms to put the children for naps and still carry on the party on the main floor at full volume.
3) The kitchen/dining situation easily accommodated our large group. We were able to cook all our meals here--sometimes for as many as 11 people at a sitting--without any trouble. There was a second dining table that we set up, and plenty of place settings for our group. The one major difficulty we had was with kitchen utensils and knives. I wish I had simply gone to Target and spent $50 on some supplements, as these items were past their useful lifespan and should be updated. However, the kitchen was well-supplied with appliances, and we used them all (cappucino maker, toaster, blender, microwave, etc).
4) The furnishings were fabulous. Chairs, sofas, beds, and linens and decorations were all aesthetically pleasing (big step up from typical hotel furnishings) and also very comfortable. In particular, the master bedroom suite was a pleasing oasis.
5) Our host was very helpful. After learning that we'd need a playpen to sleep our 1 year old, he supplied a top notch one and installed a baby gate (essential) before our arrival. This was very appreciated.
6) Beach access was incredible. We used the "private beach" only once, as it was onerous to carry the baby down the long stairs and we had elderly folks with us. But Aliso Beach (1 mile away) was awesome with easy parking.

I only have a two small nits to pick:
1) I think the "fifth bedroom," which is really a study outside the master suite should have blackout shades and a ceiling fan installed. We put the baby in this room and had to drape blankets over the windows to cut the light. This made the room very hot and did not work to black out the room. So this room is not fully functional as a bedroom, in my opinion.
2) The aforementioned kitchen utensil and knife shortage.

Overall an A+ vacation spot.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time on our Spring Break @ this lovely Laguna Beach house. The setting is beyond amazing! Beautiful views, we actually saw dolphins and whales from the balcony's! We had everything we needed in terms of kitchen items and linens, etc., and the owner was a pleasure to work with. Lots of parking which is great and the house is private and close to many attractions in Laguna. We had such a great time and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a fantastic time in Laguna Beach. Thanks again Jim!!

An Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
It’s with hesitation that I write this review. I simply don’t want this gorgeous property to be ‘found out’! It was by pure luck that I came across this jewel, when planning our family vacation to Southern California. We usually stay in Dana Point or Newport but opted to try something new. From the time I first spoke to the owner of this property, to the arrival and eventual departure back home, we weren’t ever disappointed. Communication with the owner was simple. He is knowledgeable of the area, friendly and very accommodating. The home is nestled into a cul de sac and was the one with most curb appeal, absolutely breathtaking when we were driving in. The 3 car garage eased the parking headache we seemed to always have when we were in Newport. The home is very comfortable with views that certainly won’t disappoint. I don’t remember closing the sliding glass windows at all during our trip – I miss that sound and smell of the ocean! I utilized the large kitchen often and my family dined outside at sunset each night. The decor was comfy and very relaxing. The private beach was EMPTY – we took some great photos which adorn our walls today. We spent 4 glorious days here and would recommend it to anyone (but don’t tell too many people). Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of heaven with us!

Amazing Home and Location!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived a day ahead of our party and it was a perfect couple's getaway. The master bedroom and bathroom, both of which look out on to the ocean, provided a romantic feel that was surpassed by any other hotel/bed and breakfast that we have stayed in. When the rest of our party (5 additional people) arrived the following day, it also comfortably accommodated everyone. Everyone had their own space, but the large open living, kitchen and dining area made it perfect for everyone to hang out together. The home was amazingly decorated, but still very comfortable. It is close to the beach, shopping and the cute downtown village, but it is still tucked away. Perfect location! We will definitely make it back any chance we get; it has become a "go to" destination for our family and we look forward to the memories ahead! Can't say enough!!

Thanksgiving Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My family met at this beautiful home for the Thanksgiving holiday. This home surpassed our expectations in all ways. The view was beautiful, the home comfortable, and the owners gracious. There were seven of us, and we all were very comfortable in this property. Because of the holiday, the owners made sure we had the bake ware and serving dishes needed to put on a holiday feast. There were fresh flowers in the master bedroom - the view from there was awesome. My girlfriend and I sat with our wine, read our books, and watched the sunset. We all would definietly recommend this home to vacation in. There are three stories only accessed by stairs. The owners do have a baby gate available to corral pets or small children.
