Overview

Corona del Mar House Rental Photos and Description

2,400 sq. ft. in 3-bedroom, 3-bath home 3 blocks from beach

The home is a 2,400-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2-story structure with a rooftop deck. The architectural design is contemporary -- the front of the house is almost entirely glass, with windows running the entire perimeter of the upper story. From the reflective beauty of the Russell Jacques stainless steel water-themed sculpture on the exterior to the sky-lighted interior, the home is drenched in brightness. The downstairs is comprised of the music room graced by an ivory Kawai baby grand piano and a double fireplace warming the music room and great room. The first floor also contains a full bathroom with an amazing steam shower, a separate dining room with wine bar, and a superbly-crafted custom kitchen. Additional eating/seating areas include a thick glass bar between the kitchen and great room, a fully-equipped bar in the music room, and a pass-through bar outside the kitchen window in the back patio. The back patio has additional outdoor seating and contains a large built-in Dynasty gas BBQ with searing station. A large dining patio, newly remodeled, fronts the house with additional seating around a copper fire brazier perfect for roasting marshmallows.

A dramatic spiral staircase winds its way upwards through two exotic wood hand-carved humpback whale sculptures floating in the open vaulted space between floors. The loft-style master bedroom (king-sized bed) -- with en suite bathroom and Jacuzzi tub -- has a double fireplace serving both the master bedroom and an adjoining sitting area furnished with a large, curved sofa that hangs suspended above the downstairs family room. The second bedroom (queen-sized bed) has an en suite bathroom that can also be accessed through the hallway for the use of the third bedroom which is equipped with a lovely trundle daybed. The back door to the third bedroom leads, via an exterior spiral staircase, to the rooftop deck with blue-water views of the Pacific Ocean.

The home is equipped with 4 cable TVs and a stereo system that pipes sound throughout the house and up onto the rooftop deck. Travertine flooring is throughout the home with the exception of bamboo hardwood in the living room. There is an indoor laundry room with washer/dryer. The home has central heating/air conditioning. Of course, there are plenty of beach towels and beach chairs for everyone!

About Eleanor Elsten

I am a retired educator who treasures having lived in Corona del Mar for the past 20 years. I was born in New England but brought up here in Southern California, and I value this beautiful lifestyle every day when I walk along the cliffs overlooking the great Pacific Ocean or hear, while lying in bed, the sea lions barking from the buoys or the sound of the foghorn on a misty night.

Eleanor Elsten purchased this house in 1992

Why Eleanor Elsten chose Corona del Mar

My parents used to take us to Big Corona on summer weekends when we were children. My mom always packed the same beach picnic lunch that seemed to mix with sand just fine: tuna fish sandwiches, Fritos, and lemonade to wash it all down. Later, I lived in Corona del Mar's China Cove in my college years, but sadly had to move inland while raising my kids. China Cove, Pirate's Cove, Big Corona, and Little Corona became my children's favorite beaches, too, though we had to drive a little farther to get here. Finally, taking almost 20 years to make it back, I returned to live in Corona del Mar.

What makes this house unique

I knew at first sight that I wanted this to be my home -- it is has modern serenity while remaining unpretentious, warm, and comfortable. The home contains the essential elements of the Pacific shore: the sandy-colored, pebbled ocean floor, the ever-changing saltwater blues and greens, and then up through the spiral staircase to the fresh air and bright sky above. The original owners designed this home to last, building into it quality and substance. This house is perfectly located -- 5 minutes' walk to the only grocery store in the Village, 2 minutes' walk to the Goldenrod Bridge with its straight shot to the beach, and brief walking minutes to great restaurants, coffee shops, libraries, shopping, and world-class playgrounds. It is easy to put down roots anywhere in Corona del Mar, but even easier to flourish where you're in the perfect location in a home that inspires.

Superb

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a week in July. After a very long flight and the LA Friday night traffic it was a relief to arrive at such a great house. The house has everything you could want and is beautifully decorated. It's a short walk to corona del mar beach. My two children were able to walk it comfortably with buggie boards and various other beach necessities. The house even came with buggie boards and a beach bag. I would not hesitate in recommending the property and if I was in the area again would definitely stay here, which I hope to be one day! It's also a very short walk to shops and cafés.

Fun vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
Here are a few of our favorite things about this rental home:
1. The owner is super fabulous to work with. She has a fun sense of humor and ensures your stay to be the best ever! Her instructions are perfectly written with a sense of humor in regards to her restaurant choices.
2. This home is perfectly decorated with every amenity provided and I mean EVERY! A beautifully decorated home with bed linens that are so comfy and gorgeous, makes for a great nights sleep!
3. Perfect home to entertain guests. We were in CDM for our sons wedding and had several parties. She has everything you need to cook, prepare and serve your guests.
4. No need to use your car, just about everything is within walking distance. The beach, shopping, grocery store, restaurants, yoga studios. We took our bikes for some fun bar hopping!

We were sad to leave but would book this home again and recommend it highly! You will not be disappointed!

BEAUTIFUL CdM RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
I arranged the rental of this beautiful home for my sister and her family, who came to visit from the East Coast last September. They were thrilled with the home, as was I when I came to visit several times. First, the home is clean, well-organized, and really lovely. I opened up the home for my sister, and the directions for getting in and getting started were very thorough and easy to follow. The owner of the home really thought of everything, and we never had to ask for a thing.

The location of the home is perfect -- "walking close" to just about anything you can think of, including the beach, supermarket, cleaners, movie theater, great restaurants, you name it, and "driving close" to Disneyland, live theater and concerts, the San Diego Zoo and Sea World, and museums both in Orange County and Los Angeles. I am so glad that I booked this rental -- it will become our go-to lodging choice for visiting friends and family in the future.

Retreat from the Heat

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed in this great home for the last 4 days and it couldn't have been a better experience. We are actually still here. Our suitcases and my golf clubs are in the back of the car and we're ready to drive back to Scottsdale where the heat is waiting for us (107 forecast for Sunday). The weather here in Corona Del Mar has been made to order. It's been around 80 every day but cools off at night so that we can use the down comforter. The way the bed is made is one of my wife's favorite things about this house. I golfed three rounds at the spectacular Pelican Hill courses while my wife went to the beach, read and shopped. Yesterday we walked to her favorite beach spot and that night we had a great dinner at Bayside Restaurant. To say that we loved staying here is not enough. It's the best and most relaxing vacation we've ever had and the greatest value too. To get this fantastic home for the price of a moderate hotel room is unbelievable. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION. We'll be back.

Sister Reunion

  • 5 of 5
My three sisters and I spent a long weekend at this beautiful home in Corona del Mar, and we are still texting each other about what a great time we all had. We've gotten together every few years at different vacation destinations, but we all agree that this one we're definitely coming back to. The house itself is lovely and well-appointed, and Corona del Mar Village is just the perfect classy beach community. The house and the neighborhood are so quiet and peaceful that we found it hard to tear ourselves away, but we did end up walking to the beach at least once every day, making sure we went to each of the four beaches within walking distance (our favorite is Little Corona). We also managed to go to Fashion Island a few times and treated ourselves to Gulfstream for our big night out -- otherwise, we cooked at home, enjoying the fabulous back patio BBQ and drinking wine on one of several patios (our favorite is the rooftop deck at dusk). We've already asked Eleanor if she will book the same time next year for us -- no more waiting every two years for our sisters' reunion!

Fantastic Spring Break

  • 5 of 5
My husband, three kids and I all loved our vacation in Corona del Mar in this beautiful home. The listing was very accurate -- as a matter of fact, I think the home more than lived up to the advertising. Even though it looks elegant and pristine, the house really put up with our beach traffic. The travertine/hardwood floors were very forgiving with 10 sandy feet tramping back and forth from the beach. This area has so much to offer that we didn't really go too far away -- great restaurants (Panini and La Fogata, I will miss you!), great shopping, great weather, gorgeous beaches! What more could you ask?

Summertime in Corona del Mar is drop-dead gorgeous, but the year-round weather is outstanding, as well. The air is lovely, the ocean is beautiful, the sun is bright, and the sky is blue. The creamy stretches of beach sand beckon -- and it's only a 5- to 10-minute walk to several ocean or bay beaches. Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm are only 30 minutes away, it's 10 minutes to John Wayne Airport, 1 hour to Los Angeles Airport, and 2 hours to mountains or desert. There are two nice parks within walking distance (one with Newport Harbor views) and a beautiful park within 5 minutes' drive with free use of tennis/basketball courts, soccer goals, and state-of-the-art play equipment with stunning views of the ocean and bay.

Notes:
Balboa Island is a five-minute drive away -- 10 minutes by bike -- and offers a charming main street full of interesting shopping and dining opportunities. Cross the beautiful Newport Harbor from Balboa Island via ferry to the Newport Peninsula where electric, paddle, small-motor fishing, and commercial charter fishing boats are for hire. Bicycle rentals are also available. At the ferry crossing on the peninsula lies the Fun Zone with arcade games, bumper cars, a merry-go-round, bungee jumping, and a ferris wheel. Newport Peninsula also has a number of outstanding beaches, including the world-famous body-surfing Wedge. Back in Corona del Mar close to home, a cool electric bike store has opened up on Pacific Coast Highway. The Pedego shop is a five-minute walk from home, and a small motorized bike makes biking down south to Crystal Cove or Laguna Beach a snap. Ask Pedego about their weekly rates. (There is a Pedego brochure in the three-ring binder Vacationers' Handbook.)
