Year round Mediterranean weather with a small town environment...

This home is VERY relaxing....I read and look at the ocean..and sleep.
We love to have friends over for gourmet meals and cocktails on the deck.
The home theater is awesome.
We spent the month of July in Verna's lovely home while escaping a brutal July in our home town of Tucson. Sitting on the wonderful balcony all along the front of the house having our coffee every morning was great. And watching the fireworks on July 4th from the balcony was spectacular! The house is really comfortable and very well stocked with evreything you might need including various sizes of storage bags! Verna greeted us warmly and had left a bottle of wine and a bowl of fresh vegatables for us. The house is just a short walk from the free Laguna Beach trolly that took us into town to shop, attend art festivals, and enjoy the wonderful Laguna Beach restaurants. And it was a short walk down to the many little hidden coves that dot the coast in Laguna. Verna was a most gracious host, giving us tips about things and checking in to be sure everything was OK. The laundry facilities were great as well. This the perfect house to use as a base for exploring all that Laguna offers as well as just sitting on the balcony enjoying the cool ocean breezes and the marvelous view of the ocean!
Just returned from a month long vacation in Laguna Beach. Our stay at Verna's house greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was in perfect condition. The newly renovated bathrooms were terrific and the kitchen was fabulous -well stocked and ready to go. When we arrived wine, cheese,and fresh fruits were waiting for us. What a great surprise after a long flight. Every evening we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the sun setting over Catalina Island. We never tired of spending time on the deck watching the scenery.
Verna was extraordinary. She made sure any questions we had were promptly addressed. She even supplied us with a binder filled with notes and directions for everything in the house
We were so thrilled with our stay, that we have already committed to Verna for an even longer stay for next year. We can't wait to return! If you are interested in staying in Laguna Beach do yourself a favor and contact Verna. This is the house to chose!
This home is exactly as it is in the pictures. The views are to-die-for with a long extended balcony, A rarity in the Laguna Beach area. All rooms except for the back entertainment/2nd bedroom have amazing views and nice ocean breezes. The property is well-kept and the owner was quite accommodating, and we are very particular!
The kitchen is very well stocked if you choose to cook and there's plenty of storage throughout the property. The owner will even store your luggage giving you a little more wiggle room if you need it.
There is a short but hilly walk to the free Laguna Beach Trolley which we took advantage of often. There is a quaint neighborhood restaurant down the hill. Victoria Beach is about a 10 minute walk, easy down and challenging but do-able trip up. The Montage is about a 15 minute walk with just a few seconds along the bike path on PCH, the rest sidewalk paths. Just a short fifteen minute drive to Dana Point, Newport Beach, or Corona del Mar.
Uber was an easy option as most rides were just a few dollars into the Village.
We were grateful we had the parking spot as finding a spot can be a challenge during high season. We were also enjoyed having the air conditioning to take advantage of on the days when temps were unusually high.
The full-size washer and dryer were nicer than those we have at home!
In the two months we were there we got a chance to know the very nice neighbors.
We hope to get a chance to visit again soon!
Loved the place. As others stated beautiful views, wonderfully decorated and great location. Owner also purchased us a Bullitt blender when we asked if they had one and they did not. The owner went out of their way to accommodate us when their was a problem one day in the kitchen area. Hope to come back soon to this magical place in Laguna beach.
After many years of searching for the perfect summer home……we have found this treasure where we stayed for three months last summer.
Not only is the location fantastic: 8 minutes’ walk to Victoria Street beach, 3 minute drive to the Montage walk (the most beautiful walk in the world) and 5 minutes to Main Beach (most fun place on the Coast). Not to mention the Penthouse itself: everything is in pristine condition and of high quality. The place has a magical atmosphere and you can’t not be happy and feel celebratory to be there. The views….every night a sensational sunset! Oh, and the fabulous showers!!!
The owners are superb human beings and have gone above and beyond in helping us with some unusual issues. Any little problem you might find is immediately taken care of in the most pleasant manner.
Please don’t book too long…..give us a chance to come back!
My wife and i had the opportunity to rent this unit for 11 months and not a day went by that we didn't pinch ourselves how lucky we were to live in this cute Penthouse. Great location, great owners, amazing views, spectacular sun sets. We felt very fortunate to call this property our home in 2013. We wish anyone else who stays in this very cool place, as much peace and happiness as we enjoyed.
Laguna Beach is like a warmer Carmel. Tons of art galleries, museums, great shopping and the best restaurants. Water sports, trips to Catalina, fishing....all with amazing sunsets right from your living room and deck. A 180% view of the ocean. WOW!! Walking distance from the beautiful Montag Resort.
