This is one of the last few REAL Laguna Beach oceanfront Estates! Family owned for over 50 years. Private Home behind Security Gate. 125 feet of Private Oceanfront. Private steps to an intimate beach. Pool and pool house. Private cliff deck looking over spectacular whitewater coastal views.
Words cannot describe the views. Not one of our guests have ever said that 'this is what I expected'.
After 60+ years of of our Family residing on this most spectacular property, we have decided to share its treasures with a select clientele. Pictures and descriptions can never do this property justice! We have had much enjoyment with the appreciation of our past guests. Many new friends we have made and many fond memories we have been able to provide to our guests.
One of the last very few Original Laguna Estate properties. On nearly an acre of private behind private gate oceanfront. This property boasts 120+ feet of private coastline. Views and seclusion that very few properties can offer.
For the second year in a row, this home provided the perfect location for old and new friends to get together for time away. This year it was the background for two friends since childhood and former college roommates to get back together after twenty years. The security provided by the gates gives immediate feelings of safety which is key when traveling. The access to a private cove was used several times by our group. We loved the seclusion and privacy it provided. Some of the best times of the trip were the evenings sitting around the kitchen table talking and laughing after having an incredible meal prepared by the group. Ocean waves provided all the background noise needed for four girls from the Midwest. One of the girls pup loves the house also and she made herself right at home. She remembered where everything was from the year before. The huge master upstairs with the windows overlooking the ocean was a perfect hangout spot for chats after breakfast and making plans for the day. Thank you again to JJ for making the stay an easy and relaxing one. It was like coming home.
My husband and I stayed in this remarkable property for a week in Sept 2014. We found Casa Maxine to be exactly as described and more beautiful than expected. Truly the most amazing views I have ever experienced. The location cannot be beat. Minutes to the best Laguna has to offer. Walk to fantastic yoga studio and secluded and gorgeous beaches. We spent every evening on the lookout deck watching the waves crash and the stars sparkle.
Close by are Ritual Yoga, Sapphire, La Sirena, and Casa de Camino restaurants all which we highly recommend.
Thanks to JJ, Susie and Alex for being such gracious and kind hosts!
We look forward to the next time we come to Laguna and a stay at Casa Maxine!
Let me start by saying that JJ/Susie were the best ever. I hadn't met JJ until flying across the country to stay at his property...let me say that he made me feel welcome from the first moment we spoke.
I had done my research on Laguna and I had been there a few times prior to this trip. Let me save time for anyone looking for the PERFECT Laguna vacation, stop looking and book this home! Seriously stop and contact JJ/Susie right now.
The location ...amazing, the house...mind blowing, the views...unbelievable, JJ/Susie...great people, the vacation my kids experienced...priceless!
I have traveled just about everywhere you could imagine and this house, location and the reception by the homeowners go beyond what I can say.
JJ thank you once again for all that you did for the five of us I am truly in debt to you for all of the memories that you two have helped me provide for my family. I can't wait to see you next time, maybe we could go for a ride on the Vespa's!
The only regret I have about staying at the Casa Maxine is that I had to finally leave and come home. JJ/Susie thanks for sharing your home with us and I look forward to the next time we meet. THANK YOU BOTH!!!
I would give this house 8 stars if it was available
I would give the owners 10 Stars
JJ and Susie were great and I want to thank them again for giving us the opportunity to enjoy their property. It was five of us girls who graduated high school together in Southern Illinois who hadn't spent a weekend visiting in many years. I suggested Laguna Beach and this property came through for us. It is set on the most beautiful, awesome shoreline in Southern California. We ate breakfast together, enjoying the ocean views, and watching the dolphins playing in the ocean in front of us. In the afternoons, we enjoyed the peacefulness and sunshine from the pool area. Of course, we were in "awe" with each sunset. My little Aussie pup joined us and we were able to take advantage of the private beach/cove. I could continue on and on but I believe anyone reading this review can get my point. None of us wanted to leave this morning but we leave with wonderful memories to talk about for many years to come. Again Thank You for sharing your property!!
I have stayed in Laguna on several occasions, and while each stay has always been fantastic, this was by far my best experience. This time around I spent over a month and a half searching the internet for the perfect rental property in Laguna for my girlfriend and I. I am fairly certain I have looked at every property you could rent, and trust me when I tell you, there is nothing like what this property has to offer, especially for the price and option for short stays. I had a very specific criteria for what I wanted, but the most important thing to me was finding a really nice place that was actually up on the ocean, not a few blocks away, where I could get the true feel of what it's like to live by the ocean in a great southern California town. My search yielded nothing other than homes that were either way out of my price range, and/or would not rent for a period less than a month. When I found Casa Maxine it was obvious I had found something special, it looked to be everything I had hoped for. As it turns out I was right, and then some.
I can not say enough about how amazing this house is. As great as the pictures are, they truly don't do it justice. The location, the landscapes, the views, the sunsets, the comfort and interior of this place, the lookout deck (which isn't pictured) where you could privately spend hours just gazing out over the ocean, the private beach, everything this place has to offer... Simply amazing. And on top of all that, the owners are two of the nicest people you could meet, and are as accommodating as can be.
If you are looking for the best Laguna experience you can have, believe me, you do not need to look any further, this is it.
Located just a few minutes south of downtown Laguna Beach just far enough to enjoy privacy and seclusion, but close enough to enjoy all the attractions and art galleries and finest dining within a few minutes. A block away from a 'trolley stop'. Ride the Free open air trolley's that run from the end of June to the beginning of September. They are a stress free way to get around town during the summer rush. No need to worry about driving and parking. Don't miss the Pageant of the Masters and the Sawdust Festival, Laguna is famous for!
