Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place to stay with a family. While it was a short drive to the beach and downtown, we enjoyed being up on the hill looking out at the ocean. There was a lovely breeze each evening from the second floor deck that we enjoyed while cooking dinner and watching the Olympics.

Beautiful clean home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was exactly as described by the owner and all the reviewers; immaculate, well stocked and with beautiful views. We stayed 6 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Jeff, the owner was very accommodating and responsive. The home was located in a charming, quiet neighborhood but access to the beaches and downtown was an easy ride down the hill. We often parked on the PCH and took the free shuttle to our destinations. The park at the top of the hill was an excellent spot for a morning walk or run and the nature trails were a fun challenge with incredible views. We enjoyed all the local beaches but found that some were more easily accessible for one of our family members. The Strand beach in Dana Point was a short ride down PCH and has free parking and the funicular (a small elevator) for those who need it. The beach at Crystal Cove was also easily accessible. $15 to park gives you access to everything at the park for the day. The beach right down the hill below the Montage Resort was also fairly accessible with a ramp.

The only suggestions I would make is for the home to have a few more conveniences for guests with kids. A door mat at the entry to wipe feet would have been helpful. I found that sand would make it's way up the steps and cause them to be slippery. Also, hooks in the bathroom would be great for wet suits and towels. Other than that it was perfect and we would definitely stay again and recommend this home.

Beautiful, modern, immaculate property, great view

  • 5 of 5

This was a stunning house and exactly as described. We were six people, two couples with our two 22 year old daughters. The house was modern, clean, simply and beautifully decorated, with a state of the art kitchen. There was a lovely view of Laguna and the ocean, from the upstairs balcony, as shown in the property photo. The two master bedrooms were very large, each with a King bed and high end bedding. I have to say it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! The downstairs large bedroom has a patio with a hot tub, but there is no curtain on the widow (there is an outside wall for privacy) and our friends who stayed in that room had issues with the property light in the evening and daylight in the morning.The third bedroom, called the meditation room is on the small side and dark (with one small window). We put our daughters in there, with an air mattress provided by Jeff that was surprisingly thick and plush. Probably not a great option for older adults, but for young adults, teenagers or kids it was okay. There is a wonderful park about a block and a half from the house. There is a paved loop perfect for power walking and relatively flat, or miles and miles of hilly dirt trails. I even spotted a rattle snake (from a distance!). The house is high up in Laguna Hills in a quiet neighborhood, so be prepared to use your car to and from the beach, town etc. There is bus and trolley service if you don't want to bother with the car, but we stuck with driving. We did not get to meet Jeff, the owner, however, he made check in and check out a breeze, left a guest manual with all the information we needed, and was reachable in an emergency. One of the great advantages of the house for us, was being able to spend family time cooking great meals in a beautiful setting. We were even able to have a couple of family members who lived in the area over for dinner. The house is incredibly light with lot's of glass and the living room is comfortable and a great place for a small group to enjoy being together. There was a large gas grill on the upstairs patio making barbecuing really easy and fun, and the kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, glassware, pots and pans etc. and even great spices and condiments. I would highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone who wants a relaxing Laguna beach vacation. We hope to make a return visit at some point. Thank you Jeff for a very special experience!

Contemporary home, beautiful views from 2nd floor, extremely nice owners

  • 5 of 5

The home is recently remodeled and furnished with a contemporary look, including artwork. It feels like a home, not a rental where the owners try to minimize the investment. We found the kitchen had every kind of appliance you could ever hope to have. We cooked several meals and found that if you looked, you would find the item you needed. The whole house is well-organized so it doesn't take much looking to find; for example the extra sheets, pillows, and blankets for a bed are all put together in one box in the downstairs BR--hooray, so easy to find! The master bedroom and large bedroom downstairs were airy and spacious. The third bedroom is a little odd (the pictures are accurate) but there are 2 air mattresses in the downstairs BR and the sofa upstairs is comfy for sleeping. Bathrooms were well lit (not a given in rentals) and kitted out with high end shampoos, conditioners and soaps which was a very nice touch. The upstairs living area is where we spent most of our time. It was bright and beautiful during the day with ocean views, and had plenty of light at night for reading or relaxing. We liked the deck upstairs also, including the umbrella for shade in the afternoon when the coastal fog burned off. The jacuzzi was in perfect order, kept warm when not in use, and heated up quickly when we turned up the thermostat. Laundry was great to have for washing the wet clothes from kayaking, detergent is supplied, as is most everything else you would need for your vacation.

The owners are super super nice. I interacted with Jeff and have nothing but good things to say about him. We've rented more than 15 VRBOs and Jeff is definitely one of the very nicest hosts you could hope to have. He was keen to make sure everything was just right for our vacation, even though he became a new dad during our stay!! They left a lovely basket of homegrown avocados, mandarin oranges, lemons, and kumquats which we enjoyed during our stay. The avocados were especially yummy.

It was about a 10' drive into Laguna Beach itself. There is a nice park about 2 blocks away with a playground, a great par course (remember those?), and access to a trail on the mesa that goes about a mile. Of our 3 dinners out, we liked Three Seventy Commons the best for food and service. Stonehill Tavern down in Dana Point was overpriced with iffy service; food was very good. Driftwood has a beautiful dining room--food is solid, if not particularly imaginative, and service was decent.

Outstanding Experience

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was fantastic! This house is beautiful, and the view of the Pacific is unparalleled. We had everything we needed - from extra linens to a well-stocked kitchen. The deck was lovely for early morning coffee and wine at the end of the day. The hot tub was an extra treat. Jeff could not have been more welcoming and available to answer any and all questions. We would recommend this property to anyone headed to Laguna Beach for a weekend or longer.

Clean and nicely furnished property.

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I were attending a wedding in Laguna Beach on April 30th, and selected this property as our base for the week.

It turned our to be the perfect choice. There were 6 of us staying in total, and with the 2 air mattresses provided, the place was comfortably big enough for all of us. The property has a very spacious feel, and with the large west facing balcony it was perfect for relaxing evenings, and watching the sun go down. The beachs and downtown Laguna are only a short drive away, and after a day spent out we would often bring back groceries and use the large grille that's on the balcony to cook up our evening meal.

Thanks to Jeff for being prompt in responding to any queries we had.

We look forward to staying here again in the future and spending more time exploring lovely Laguna Beach.

Highly recommended

Lloyd M
