Overview

Laguna Beach House Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 2 bath, double masters. New and immaculate! 2 blocks to beach, Location!

An absolutely stunning and recently remodeled example of a historically listed Cottage in North Laguna, one of the most sought after neighborhoods.

Laguna is a walking town, especially in the summer when traffic and parking can be problematic! This location boasts a two block walk to the best coved beaches in Laguna: Crescent Bay, Diver's Cove, Fishermans... and also one of the most beautiful parks in the world, Heisler Park; you walk two blocks to the park and then 1/2 mile through the most beautiful park scenery on the planet, with stunning Pacific Coast views, to Main Beach and Downtown, about 10 minutes, but you'll linger for sure! In the summer there's a free trolley service to move you all over Laguna which stops one block away... and an app to track them so you don't waste time waiting at a stop! It's also only a block from Boat Canyon which has restaurants, Vons Grocery store, Spas and Gyms.

Location really is everything in Laguna and this spot not only allows walking distance to the best spots, it's North location also allows by far the quickest routes to outside locations like Crystal Cove, Fashion Island, South Coast Plaza, Disneyland, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, LA... SNA Airport is only 15 minutes away.

The house is a historic early 1900's cottage, so much character, but has been completely remodeled with all new appliances and mod-cons. There are two master suites, both with ensuite bathrooms. One has a king bed, 47' flatscreen tv and faces towards the ocean with Catalina views, the bathroom has a lovely walk in shower. The second is darker and restful, a queen bed and a *luxurious* new bathroom with rain shower and jacuzzi tub.

The living area is large with dramatic cathedral ceilings, modern fireplace, chandelier, TV area with sofas you fall into, Premium Directv, Bose Sound, and BluRay player... oh, and a baby grand piano. If you play the piano then sit and watch the sun go down over Catalina as you play! There's also a desk with brand new HP Revo computer and free Wifi.

The Kitchen has been upgraded to all new Samsung appliances, Brazilian granite countertops, every piece of cookware you need to serve gourmet dishes! There's a Vitamix, Microwave, Toaster, Kettle and drawers and cupboards filled with spices, teas, utensils and everything else you need to feel like a home away from home.

You open up to the back patio from the living area or kitchen and have an entertainers paradise. Rustic French style solid wood dining table and benches, Sofa seating, sun lounger, new BBQ and mood setting night lighting. There's even a misting system to keep you cool if laying out.

A separate private office room with desk, printer and a space to be alone if you need to work, as well as a separate laundry room with full size washer/dryer, beach gear and storage.

The front of the house is so quaint with a picturesque, historic, beach cottage welcome! Manicured front lawn, night lighting, rose garden and driveway parking for two cars.

This home has history, style and character but also great modern decor and amenities. Plus the location is absolutely perfect!

Please Email me with any questions and I will return your inquiries promptly.

About Gary

Hi, I'm Gary. I'm originally from England but have lived in Laguna Beach for 20 years. I came here for work in the software biz and thought I'd only stay for 2-3 years. Needless to say, this place is pretty special!

Gary purchased this house in 2013

Why Gary chose Laguna Beach

I've lived all over Laguna Beach but I especially like North Laguna. It's beaches remind me of the coves in the Mediterranean. Heisler Park runs besides them and it's all just two blocks away. Walk a couple of mins to the park and then take as much time as you can to walk along the pacific coast through the park's incredible beauty to downtown Laguna, it's about half a mile, 10 mins, but you'll take longer! Plus, if you need to get out of dodge, there's no faster way in the summer traffic than heading out North to the 73 and 405 freeways. Great shopping in Crystal Cove is a few miles away, and as you head North you hit Newport, Huntington, Long Beach, LA... Location is pretty important in Laguna Beach!

What makes this house unique

The house has amazing charm and I bought it with the mindset of remodeling, it now feels luxurious but also warm and homely. It's been a labor of love... I live here... I'm proud of it and think anyone renting it would love it too. I hope so.

Absolutely the Best!

  • 5 of 5

My family could not be more happy with Gary's Laguna Beach Bungalow. Every review is spot on accurate. The place is beautiful and very functional. The outside deck is truly an extension of the kitchen. Like most of the other renters, we actually spent more time outside than inside however we literally used every square inch of the place. You cannot find a better location. The walk to Heisler Park is about 2 minutes and gives you access to several points on the beach including Main Beach. The town is a 7-10 minute walk depending on how distracted you get. The scenery is simply stunning and Californians are beyond fortunate although I guess the traffic and taxes even everything out. A great supermarket sits less than 100 yards away and it has a Starbucks inside.

Gary is fantastic - reliable, responsive, and he made our stay the best vacation we have taken as a family. You simply will not find a better location or owner. This will now become an annual vacation for us. Thank you Gary!

Thanksgiving in Laguna!

  • 5 of 5

From the comfortable furniture, to the remodeled bathrooms and the outdoor dining/party space; our family could not have been happier with "Laguna Gary's" bungalow! A very short walk to the market also made life easy. We will definitely return. Thank you Gary, we truly enjoyed our stay. :))

Awesome Laguna Beach Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

It's been 3 months and we still have great memories of our stay. First of all, Gary was great to work with to schedule our stay. He was flexible with arrival and departure times and greeted us personally on arrival to show us around and get us settled. Casandra was very responsive too and we quickly received our deposit back when we left. The cottage itself is great -- very inviting and comfortable, light and bright, and nicely appointed. We had our meals on the wonderfully appealing deck. The location can't be beat. Not only is the cottage close to the necessities, like groceries, etc within walking distance, it also is within easy walking distance to numerous cove beaches, Heisler park and the downtown area with all it has to offer. We definitely want to return. We only hope there will be space available as Gary's cottage will no doubt be in high demand. Thank you Gary for a wonderful stay! P & J (and our two boys)

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home inside and out on a quiet street within a 10 minute walk to downtown Laguna Beach and a 5 minute walk to the beach! The back patio is private and nice for entertaining or relaxing. The kitchen was really nice and included everything you'd ever need, including condiments and spices. The living room has a view of the ocean, is roomy and great for watching a movie or reading a book. The bedrooms were very comfortable and bathrooms were very zen. A lot of natural lighting throughout the house. If you need to do laundry, there is a convenient washer and dryer. The owner also has anything you might need for the beach. It was the perfect house for what my family and I were looking for!

Perfect Little Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The home was a perfect combination of contemopary, modern, shabby chic, beachy feel. The home was designed beautifully. Great choices for finishes. We felt very comfortable being in this house. The owner was very generous with sharing and giving access to anything in the house. We were able to use the washing machines and detergents, any of the pots and pans and dishes in the cabinets, playstation, and a docked Ipod to stream Wifi music, wifi access, all the necessities for the beach (towels, cooler, chairs and umbrella) .

There is a driveway and parking in front too. Easy walking distance to supermarket, restaurants and "free" public transportation bus stop. Great location.

Perfect house that fit my family of 5. We enjoyed staying in this home very much. We would definitely contact the owner again for our next Laguna Beach trip again.

Laguna Beach is absolutely the gem of Southern California! Incredible beaches and sunsets, parks and cultural activity through art, in all forms that inspire and balance so well with the incredible scenery. Michelin award winning restaurants, art festivals, live music, shopping from exclusive to boutique. Hiking, surfing, healthy eating, pampering at reknown spas. Laguna really is the Positano of the States... it's an eclectic mix of art, history, luxury, beauty and has a vibe all it's own.
