Overview

Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Spanish Revival Home with World Class Views, Location & Charm

Three bedroom, two bath, new king, queen and double pillow top mattresses, plus a Shabby Chic queen sleeper sofa sleeps 6-8 adults. Air mattresses and crib available for children or larger families.

Once you set foot on this property you won't want to leave...but if you do... there are only 5 blocks to the amazing Thalia Street beach!

Enjoy panoramic ocean and white water Laguna Beach views from this 1927 Spanish-Revival jewel box home situated on a beautiful lot in the historical village portion of Laguna Beach. Some of the most famous beaches in the world, tasty restaurants, art galleries and shopping are all within walking distance from this charming home.

The home has been lovingly updated and decorated by the owners, one of which is an interior designer. This home is a cozy, charming beach house that includes white slipcovered sofas, luxurious bed linens, white fluffy bath towels, french doors, hardwood floors and traditional sotillo tiles throughout.

The main living room area has the original wood burning fireplace and a wall of french doors and windows looking out onto the deck and view. Curl up in the cozy down filled sofa or read a book next to the fireplace in our very cool rope arm chair.

Have fun cooking in a retro styled kitchen with a fully restored O'keefe and Merrit stove, Fisher Paykel dishwasher, sky blue SMEG fridge, french bistro table and other charming details. Dine outside on the expansive decks or patios and watch the sunset...(both indoor and outdoor tables comfortably seat 8) -this is outdoor living at its finest!

There is an enclosed lower garden and an inviting front courtyard and entry all with fountains that provide charming ambiance. Privacy is enhanced by the mature hedges and tropical landscaping.

Downstairs features french doors throughout, a wet bar and entertainment bar, 50' LG Plasma HDTV with full HBO cable package and DVR. The master bedroom is located on this level as well and features a king size four poster canopy bed, HD TV with full cable and French doors lead out to a deck and garden fountain. A second bath and laundry room with dual washer and dryers (fantastically convenient!) are also located on this level.

Take a walk down to Thalia Street Beach for a full day at the beach or a sunset picnic. Cooler, beach chairs and beach towels are all provided. You will feel just like a local!

About Roddy Teeple

Roddy, a native San Diegan, and Catherine a native Marinite have lived in several parts of the US, Europe and Asia and have owned this wonderful home since 2002. Catherine is an accomplished interior designer and together with Rod, has lovingly made this this home both livable and stylish. We love this home dearly and are excited to share it with those who are looking to experience this charming beach town.

Roddy Teeple purchased this house in 2002

Why Roddy Teeple chose Laguna Beach

Early 1930's photos of Laguna show that this home was among the very first in the area. A time when home owners could select the most stunning view locations among the ridge lines to build their homes. The fundamental architecture of this property has not changed since it was built from rough cut redwood 2' x 4', as its charm and character endure to provide you with a timeless experience.

This is a wonderful property in a magical location! Before purchasing this home we did extensive terrain map studies and many walks through Laguna. This unique location on the exclusive culdisac portion of Lower Temple Hills Drive combines just the right elevation, presentation of Catalina Island and walking distance to the beach and town - our answer to perfection!

Tastefully private, and hidden behind a hedge, this property is tastefully hidden from the street. Once you step into the courtyard you are taken away to another time and feel the original charm and soul of this home. For those who value authentic California living and uncompromising views, you will find it almost impossible to leave!

What makes this house unique

The Spanish courtyard has a fountain and is encircled by mature hedges, entry courtyard has a wall fountain and flowering vines. The view deck and private lower garden have a third fountain outside the master bedroom's deck with mature hedges and vines throughout.

Indoors, the home glows with cozy beach living that will allow you to relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It is an honor for my family to be the first to sign your guest book!



Your beautiful home was the perfect backdrop for many many wonderful memories here in Laguna Beach.



The decor, a layout for Cottage Magazine, made our stay feel as comforting as well as if we were transported back in time when vacation was an integral part of life! Vintage charm in a glamorous, chic location.



We will all have a wonderous postcard in our memories for many years to come. Unanimously, we all agreed that the view was the gem in the crown of your home. I sigh to think that we will be gone in just hours.



Thank you for the opportunity to share your fabulous spot and cozy home!

We had a blast !!!

  • 5 of 5
If you want to spend your vacation in a beautiful house with ocean view , located in a stunning beach town with lots of things to do look no further. This is it!
Catherine and Roddy were very nice and were waiting for us when we arrived.
They showed us around their property and explained everything we needed to know.
House is equipped with everything you can think of:
-olive oil in the kitchen- check
-extra towels- check
-paper towel- check
-bicycles- check
-cold beer- CHECK
We even had eggs, bacon and orange juice in the refrigerator for breakfast next day.
Used VRBO many times but this was my best experience so far.
Laguna beach is a beautiful place and I hope I will have a chance to visit again.

Fabulous Fall Beach Trip to Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5
My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed a week at this fabulous house! It was a memorable and wonderful trip. The house is fantastic and has tons of amenities, from the quaint kitchen, outdoor grill, VERY comfortable beds and linens, spacious bathrooms, TV (not that we watched too much however the MLB playoffs were on so had to sneak in a couple of games) :), comfortable decks to lounge around and drink a glass of wine and MOST importantly, the VIEW of the stunning ocean view and MOST every night we watched the sunset from our balcony. Also, the décor is fabulous! I loved the interior design of the home! I would highly recommend this home as your next stay in Laguna. We walked to the beach almost every day in the early morning to watch the surfers and also walked along PCH to shop and eat at some of the local places. The owner was gracious enough to recommend a few places and walks which we enjoyed. You will NOT be sorry if you stay here! we will definitely be coming back! :)

Fabulous House and view

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting homes through VRBO in Laguna for 5 years now. We hit the jackpot with this house! It is by far the nicest, biggest, and most beautiful house we've stayed in yet. We are already in talks with the owner now to stay again next year during the same week! We spent the majority of our time on the deck enjoying the view with family! The decor and feel of the house is a 10+. If you know the store Tuvalu in Laguna which is one of my favorites, the house feels like you stepped into Tuvalu! The owner was friendly and easy to communicate with! Out of all the homes we've rented this was the nicest owner. We felt welcomed and valued! Quick walk to town and back and again the view is just AMAZING! It's simply the perfect Laguna house and we feel so happy and relieved to finally find a house we'd love to rent year after year!

Owner's Response: Bridget,

Wow! Thank you SO VERY MUCH! for such a great review. We are SO happy that you and your family had such an amazing time and we greatly appreciate your taking the time to write such a thoughtful review.

Yes! We are very excited to have you come back next year and the year after and the year after that...

My only regret is that we met most of your family but did not get a chance to meet you in person, so we hope to do so on the next visit.

All the best to you and your wonderful parents from Sydney, my favorite city in the world... (next to Laguna Village, of course ;-)))

Cheers,

Roddy and Catherine

Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5
This house exceeded our expectations and the pictures don't even do it justice!! The minute you walk in you know you chose well! What a charming, relaxing home with an outstanding view of Main Beach, Laguna, Catalina Island. The interior decorating was beautifully done, including owner-artist paintings. Every amenity was there, from the luxurious linens, two washers and two dryers, beach towels, and on and on. We would definitely recommend this property to even our most discerning friends. It was truly a treat.

Owner's Response: Mark and Sylvia,

Thank you both very much for your kind review. We greatly appreciate you sharing your experience. For the record, Catherine is clearly responsible for the decor, and her mother who is a known landscape painter, for the paintings. We are truly sorry that we were not available to meet with you on this trip as we try to meet with all of our guests to ensure that they are comfortable, but in this case, you clearly made yourselves at home. We look forward to seeing you we hope on your next visit. Thank you once again and kind regards,

Catherine and Roddy

Views, golf cart, household supplies

  • 5 of 5
I have rented a number of homes through VRBO and even have a VRBO listing in Healdsburg CA (458821). I appreciated that I did not have to think about household supplies like spices, extra paper towels and extra TP, etc. The kitchen is small but three people can work in it and the upstairs deck is a great place to gather and drink and eat.
The golf cart was handy. Yes you could walk to town and to the beach but not easy if you want to take chairs and umbrella. Had a wonderful stay and have already recommended the home to my daughter.
