A verdant green secluded hilltop masterpiece of modern-tropical architecture overlooking the blue Pacific in Laguna Beach. Just a 10 to 12 minute stroll to the sand, this is a very private property, with no houses on all sides or traffic on the dead end cul-de-sac. This villa style beach house is built into the side of a hill to obtain a flat area at the top for an exciting indoor/outdoor living experience area, with endless 180 degree panoramic ocean white water views, breaking waves, and a classic northwest view all the way to Palos Verdes Peninsula. This Laguna Beach Villa is molded into the hillside’s natural landscape and creates a unique and modern living environment with panoramic ocean views, some of the best in Laguna Beach.

Three stories of living space are perched on top of the garage. An elevator or koa wood stainless steel staircase carries you up past the two levels of bedrooms to the living/dining/kitchen great room and backyard of the top view level.

The upper story is a giant indoor/outdoor living area. The inside great room includes the gourmet kitchen, sit down bar, dining room and living room with flat screen television. The ten foot tall copper clad koa wood sliding walls of glass open the inside to the outside stone decks and pool/spa areas. Here are planted areas of exotic tropical flora, a rock sculpture, solar heated swimming pool with multiple cascading waterfalls and a large spa plus an outdoor kitchen, barbeque, stainless steel fridge, and eating area with limestone counters. A large wood and hand woven thatch and bamboo palapa imported from Bali covers a floating marble rock eating table with seating for eight outside.

The outdoor area is situated to receive sun all year round for your sunbathing pleasure. There are generous uses of round Bali stones in various colors and shapes to create a beach-like entrance to the pool. Above you sway palm and banana trees in the Shangri-La like setting with tropical plants and flowers of all types.

The modern style kitchen indoors has a large island with a glass surfboard shape sit-down bar suspended over a rainforest stone granite countertop. Also included is a Viking 8-burner cooktop with a stainless steel and glass hood to complete the island. The koa hardwood flooring and custom horizontal grain wood cabinetry in the kitchen accent the carved palm tree scene on pantry doors. Stainless steel Electrolux appliances complement the rainforest granite stone countertops and onyx stone backsplash and complete the large gourmet kitchen. There is also a large gameroom with a professional-size pool table and flat screen television for your enjoyment.

All the doors and windows are custom koa hardwood, and the windows are copper clad on the outside. The bathroom koa doors are carved with different palm trees. The bathrooms have Bali-style zen cabinetry, granite countertops with glass vessels and a generous use of glass and stone tiles throughout.

With few neighbors and no traffic on the dead end cul-de-sac, the tranquility of the setting attracts numerous birds and wildlife. This makes for a picturesque natural setting while watching the waves breaking on the vast Pacific Ocean and enjoying the ever changing sunsets into the sea.

As the hummingbirds wiz by and the bluebirds sing in the natural habitat, your attention is drawn to the ever present panoramic Pacific Ocean. It’s a daily pleasure to watch the waves breaking as the sun sets into the sea, at your own private beach resort.

Light the barbeque and tiki torches, cut up the sashimi, and do a few laps in the pool before Jacuzzi time. Hurry up and slow down this is the real Laguna Beach!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Let me say first off that we have 3 boys, ages 5, 9, and 11. We travel often and have stayed in 5 star hotels, rented condos and also own 2 vacation homes on the East Coast. What attracted us to this house was the photos and description. I am very familiar with the Laguna Beach area and we rented the house hoping the house would be like it seemed in the photos. The house was beautiful...the view spectacular and what I loved most of all was that the house did not look like a typical rental home with cheap furniture and mismatched decor.

The owner, was such a nice person and very easy to deal with. For those of you unfamiliar with the area, Laguna Beach is a great destination...great shops and restaurants, beautiful beaches, and close to Disneyland! It was also a great location for traveling down to San Diego.

My boys loved the pool and the husband and I loved the fact that the Master Bedroom was on a separate floor than the other 3 bedrooms. Great views from the Master Bedroom as well. In addition to all this, we could not see or hear our next door neighbors.

If you are looking for a beautiful house in a great location this is it!

Stunning Views, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fabulous week in Laguna at this Tropical Paradise home! The views, sunsets, pool and spa were fantastic. The home was comfortable with plenty of room for a family of four plus a family of three and grandma. Noel ensured we had everything we needed for our stay! We are looking forward to booking this property again!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing to Laguna Beach for five years now, and this home is perfect for our family. The panoramic view is breath taking so we don't mind at all having a 10 minute walk to the beach. The property was clean and Noel was there to greet us to answer any questions we had. We love that he has everything for the beach so we don't have to pack those things or worry about them. The large hot tub is a favorite spot to sit and enjoy time together while looking out over Laguna Beach! We have returned to Noel's home many, many times and recommend it to everyone we know. We love it!!

Ocean View Garden Paradise Perfection

  • 5 of 5

One of the most beautiful homes I've ever had the pleasure staying in! An absolute jewel. Every corner of this magnificent villa has a beautiful, artistic sensibility! Paintings, sculptures, wood details/floors, huge windows with ocean and pool views everywhere you looked. All the bedrooms were completely comfortable, gorgeous and well appointed and most had lovely decks. The kitchen is my dream kitchen and had everything you would ever need or want!

Noel greeted us the minute we got there and could not have been more hospitable and kind. He gave us great advice on restaurants, beaches and things to do.

I can't wait to stay here again and I'm already planning a big birthday that's not for another 3 years and this is where I want to spend it!

I highly recommend this visually spectacular and extremely comfortable vacation paradise! Enjoy!

An unforgettable thrill

  • 5 of 5

My family and I would like to thank you for allowing us to enjoy the thrill of staying in your beautiful house. It is like a tropical paradise! The pool & spa are so very well done, they resemble a secluded natural jungle pool. The great room, combines the kitchen, dining area and living room where the entire family can be together and enjoy the sweeping view of the ocean beyond. The bedroom, bathroom and laundry facilities were all first class. We had a terrific family get-together, and hope we may repeat the experience in years to come!

Our thanks to you for a magical time

Spent many relaxing hours on the roof deck swimming, sunning, hot-tubbing, dining and chatting.

  • 5 of 5

Once you see the roof deck of this house, it's hard to imagine spending any part of your vacation elsewhere. The "indoor" part consists of a large, beautifully designed and stocked kitchen, with counter seating and a dining area with a view outside and toward the sea. The adjoining open living room area is large with very comfortable modern seating.The whole area is framed by sliding glass doors which all open to make the inside and outside one fabulous space. The outside has a lot of seating and sunning spaces and we all spent hours sitting around the large hot tub. The pool is long enough to do laps, and is so beautifully land/stone- scaped that it feels like it's natural, not man-made. There are a dining table and stools outdoors where we enjoyed a number of dinners, and the full outdoor kitchen with fridge and grill makes outdoor meal preparation easy.

If you feel you have to have a change of activity, the large pool room on the lowest level is really fun. Some of the kids hadn't played pool before and our family tournaments were great. There is a large TV in that room, and others throughout the house. If you decide to have dinner out a few nights, Noel, the owner, gave us great restaurant recommendations.
