About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Come for the incredible views and the world renowned climate….stay for the amazingly luxurious accommodations.

Set on a uniquely private lot the house was lovingly fully renovated. It is now configured with three large bedroom suites each with its own private full bath. The house was recently featured in Romantic Homes magazine.

Travertine steps lead you from the garage down through lush landscaping past a six-foot high waterfall to the entry patio furnished with Brown Jordan chairs, glass topped table and French baker’s rack. This private outdoor sitting area is perfect for casual lunches or cocktails.

As you enter the house your breath will be taken away as you gaze at the magnificent panoramic views of Catalina Island, San Clemente Island, and the Pacific. The house is situated high enough (five blocks above the beach itself) to provide spectacular views up and down

The entry level includes:

Dining room with a beautiful wrought iron glass topped table that can accommodate eight and breakfront fully stocked with fine china and glassware.

Wonderful French style tiled kitchen plus walk-in pantry. Appliances include:

•Subzero refrigerator/freezer

•Thermador gas cook top

•Dacor electric convection oven

•Bosch dishwasher

•French country style farm sink

Guest suite with premium outfitted queen sized bed, small reading nook with chandelier, LCD HDTV, and tiled bathroom featuring a soaking bathtub, marble topped sink in French style chest, and linen closet. Owned by an artist, beautifully decorated and filled with distinctive art, the living room comfortably seats eight with its two separate seating areas. The main area takes full advantage of the incredible views of Catalina Island due West and one can see as far North as Palos Verdes.

The smaller sitting area with custom built-ins is centered on the gas fireplace and its magnificent marble mantle. It also has a 37” LCD HDTV and controls for the sound system throughout the house.

The upper balcony accessed from the living room has unparalleled 180 degree views up and down the southern California coast. You’ll quickly understand why Laguna Beach is compared favorably to the French Rivera. The balcony has a glass railing that provides endless sunset and whitewater viewing. The space is perfect for al fresco dining with table and chairs and includes a natural gas stainless steel grill. It also has an antique day bed that is convenient for stretching out to read your favorite novel.

The entire lower level of the house comprises the master suite. The suite includes a desk area, sitting room area, bedroom, and a luxurious bathroom. The coffered ceiling sitting area has a 42' LCD HDTV and a comfortable leather sofa-bed and wing chairs centered upon an over-sized gas fireplace with wood carved mantle and granite surround and hearth. The bedroom which is located two steps above the sitting area has a California king-size bed, art deco love seat and 37” LCD HDTV. The spacious bathroom has a beautiful limestone and glass shower, separate toilet room with etched glass door, and his and hers closets. The desk area has a storage area with a printer hidden behind leather panel doors.

The third bedroom suite has its own private entrance and is perfect for parents or those desiring some space between themselves and the other guests.

Beautiful & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much to Michael and Debbie for allowing our family to enjoy their beautiful home. The home is absolutely beautiful with a view to die for. We've rented several properties in Laguna but none with a view like this. The home is located in a quite neighborhood with quick access to the beaches and the village. We loved the layout of the home, especially the private master retreat and seperate guest house. Michael and Debbie treated us like family and we can't wait to return.

Great Laguna house, fantastic views, top quality!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 days at Michael and Debbie's lovely and top appointed home. It worked perfectly for us in all aspects. The annex is great for bigger kids or maybe grandparents joining, and the master suite gives nice privacy. The views are just fantastic, and it makes staying at the house a tempting way to spend time! We would definitely like to stay at the house again.

Great house in Laguna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as pictured. The different levels and separate "casita" offered plenty of room and some privacy for our family of 6 adults. We cooked our Christmas feast in the well-appointed kitchen. Views and sunsets were spectacular as were all the humming birds.

Michael was great to deal with before, during and after our stay.

Perfect home to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

Such a gorgeous view and house! It was perfect for our family to enjoy some much needed relaxation in Laguna Beach. We all were very comfortable and I loved how close to things the house was. Thanks Michael and Debbie for opening your home to us! We will be back.

Amazing and magnificent home and the best view!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great. The inside of the home was beautiful and you can open all the windows and doors and look at the most breathtaking view on the west coast. The area is full of restaurants, beaches and fun activities. The home was so comfortable and easy to settle right in with easy instructions of how to use everything. The only complaint was it wasn't long enough. This place exceeded our expectations By far. Perfect location to get anywhere you want and easy to just stay at the house and enjoy the outside decks and barbecue. Hands down, the best place we have stayed in.

The sunsets are breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe our lovely weekend getaway. The property is breathtaking with all the amenities you could need. This charming and welcoming home is the perfect escape from the daily grind. Enjoy dinner on the balcony with sunset views of the Pacific Ocean that are stunning. I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a quiet and romantic vacation.
