NEW! STUNNING, JUST REMODELED, NORTH LAGUNA HISTORIC COTTAGE. BEST LOCATION!

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!

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.

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.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful house for our extended vacation to Laguna Beach. Lovely finishes inside and out. Super comfortable outdoor living space. An easy walk to the beach--especially with the easy to carry beach chairs provided! Lovely walk through Heisler Park for dinners in town. Easy access to groceries.

Exceeded My Expectations - as described and more

  • 5 of 5
We were more than pleased with our stay here!! My husband and I, and our 4-year-old son, came to SoCal from St. Louis, MO. We spent 2 days at Disneyland, then came to Laguna Beach for some fun and relaxation on the beach.

Simply put, the house is beautiful and very well appointed. The furnishings, fixtures, appliances, and linens are NOT rental-grade but rather resort-grade or better. The kitchen had everything we needed, including spices, condiments, etc. - the kinds of things hard to buy for a 4-day stay.

The location is fantastic! It truly is a short walk to the beach, and the beach is lovely. We never went to Main Beach but rather used the one at Heisler Park all 3 days we were there. There is a lifeguard on duty, and the rocks provide tide-pooling opportunities. It's very clean, and there are good facilities with running water. And everything we needed for the beach was there for our use - chairs, umbrellas, and towels. Even on a beautiful July Saturday, it was not very crowded.

You can see the beach from the living room windows. The doors and windows are situated to capture the ocean breezes, and even in the hottest part of the day, it was cool and comfortable inside. The deck is fabulous and there is not an inch of wasted space. We used the gas grill for a nice salmon dinner one evening, having bought a couple of nice filets from the grocery 1 block from the house.

The owner was very easy to work with. We were able to check in a little early, and a late check-out was offered but unfortunately we had to leave for the airport. He quickly responded to all questions before the trip. And even though he was out of the country during our stay, he was available via email and text messaging, and he arranged for a local contact to be available if we needed anything.

If we ever come back for a beach vacation in SoCal, this place is at the very top of our list! In fact, I would plan a vacation around its availability if I had flexible dates. I would give a strong recommendation to anyone who asked.

All the best to Gary and Casandra!

Wow! Gorgeous home...a dream vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have absolutely loved our stay in this wonderful and perfect beach bungalow. The home is done to perfection. It is exquisite and fabulous with so much care for all the little details that clearly separate this home from typical beach vacation rentals. From the top quality finishes throughout (kudos to the interior designer!) to the comfortable and sophisticated furnishings to soft jazz playing on the Bose sound docks...to the outdoor living room...this was above and beyond all expectations. The kitchen was well-stocked...which was a very good thing as we simply did not want to leave! Yet, when we did, the beach was just a short stroll away as was the cute village of Laguna Beach. Oh, and Gary was a fantastic host. Quite simply, next time we come to Laguna Beach, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. It was a perfect vacation.

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.
