MAGICAL CHARM, PANORAMIC VIEWS! WALK TO TOWN AND BEACH!

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Laguna Beach

Spanish Revival Home with World Class Views, Location & Charm

Three bedroom, two bath, new king, queen and double pillow top mattresses, plus a Shabby Chic queen sleeper sofa sleeps 6-8 adults. Air mattresses and crib available for children or larger families.

Once you set foot on this property you won't want to leave...but if you do... there are only 5 blocks to the amazing Thalia Street beach!

Enjoy panoramic ocean and white water Laguna Beach views from this 1927 Spanish-Revival jewel box home situated on a beautiful lot in the historical village portion of Laguna Beach. Some of the most famous beaches in the world, tasty restaurants, art galleries and shopping are all within walking distance from this charming home.

The home has been lovingly updated and decorated by the owners, one of which is an interior designer. This home is a cozy, charming beach house that includes white slipcovered sofas, luxurious bed linens, white fluffy bath towels, french doors, hardwood floors and traditional sotillo tiles throughout.

The main living room area has the original wood burning fireplace and a wall of french doors and windows looking out onto the deck and view. Curl up in the cozy down filled sofa or read a book next to the fireplace in our very cool rope arm chair.

Have fun cooking in a retro styled kitchen with a fully restored O'keefe and Merrit stove, Fisher Paykel dishwasher, baby blue SMEG fridge, french bistro table and other charming details. Dine outside on the expansive decks or patios and watch the sunset...(both indoor and outdoor tables comfortably seat 8+) -this is outdoor living at its finest!

There is an enclosed lower garden and an inviting front courtyard and entry all with fountains that provide charming ambiance. Privacy is enhanced by the mature hedges and tropical landscaping.

Downstairs features french doors throughout, a wet bar and entertainment bar, 50' LG Plasma HDTV with full HBO cable package and DVR. The master bedroom is located on this level as well and features a king size four poster canopy bed, HD TV with full cable and French doors lead out to a small deck and garden fountain. A second bath and laundry room with dual washer and dryers (fantastically convenient!) are also located on this level.

Take a walk down to Thalia Street Beach for a full day at the beach or a sunset picnic. Cooler, beach chairs and beach towels are all provided. You will feel just like a local!

Guestbook comments from the owner
It is an honor for my family to be the first to sign your guest book!



Your beautiful home was the perfect backdrop for many many wonderful memories here in Laguna Beach.



The decor, a layout for Cottage Magazine, made our stay feel as comforting as well as if we were transported back in time when vacation was an integral part of life! Vintage charm in a glamorous, chic location.



We will all have a wonderous postcard in our memories for many years to come. Unanimously, we all agreed that the view was the gem in the crown of your home. I sigh to think that we will be gone in just hours.



Thank you for the opportunity to share your fabulous spot and cozy home!

Rod, a native San Diegan, and Catherine a native Marinite have lived in several parts of the US, Europe and Asia and have owned this wonderful home since 2002. Catherine is an accomplished interior designer and together with Rod, has lovingly made this this home both livable and stylish. We love this home dearly and are excited to share it with those who are looking to experience this charming beach town.

Roddy Teeple purchased this house in 2002

Early 1930's photos of Laguna show that this home was among the very first in the area. A time when home owners could select the most stunning view locations among the ridge lines to build their homes. The fundamental architecture of this property has not changed since it was built from rough cut redwood 2' x 4', as its charm and character endure to provide you with a timeless experience.

This is a wonderful property in a magical location! Before purchasing this home we did extensive terrain map studies and many walks through Laguna. This unique location on the exclusive culdisac portion of Lower Temple Hills Drive combines just the right elevation, presentation of Catalina Island and walking distance to the beach and town - our answer to perfection!

Tastefully private, and hidden behind a hedge, this property is tastefully hidden from the street. Once you step into the courtyard you are taken away to another time and feel the original charm and soul of this home. For those who value authentic California living and uncompromising views, you will find it almost impossible to leave!

The Spanish courtyard has a fountain and is encircled by mature hedges, entry courtyard has a wall fountain and flowering vines. The view deck and private lower garden have a third fountain outside the master bedroom's deck with mature hedges and vines throughout.

Indoors, the home glows with cozy beach living that will allow you to relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.

Views, golf cart, household supplies

  • 5 out of 5
I have rented a number of homes through VRBO and even have a VRBO listing in Healdsburg CA (458821). I appreciated that I did not have to think about household supplies like spices, extra paper towels and extra TP, etc. The kitchen is small but three people can work in it and the upstairs deck is a great place to gather and drink and eat.
The golf cart was handy. Yes you could walk to town and to the beach but not easy if you want to take chairs and umbrella. Had a wonderful stay and have already recommended the home to my daughter.

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 out of 5
It was our first time vacationing in Laguna and we are so happy we chose this special place to stay. The house and its property is very charming. We went with my daughter and her husband and they fell in love with the house, the ambiance and decor. The view from the upper deck is wonderful. Not only did we have have a great ocean view, it was fun being able to view the Laguna Beach High football field and the activities going on there throughout the day. My daughter and I walked every morning to downtown Laguna where there are plenty of restaurants, coffee shops and stores. The day of our arrival the owners were there to greet us and give us a tour of the house and it's property. We loved taking "Moonbeam" into town for lunch or dinner. For those of you who do not like to walk the golf cart is great. There are several beaches in Laguna to choose from. They are in walking distance, but if you have a lot to carry I suggest taking "Moonbeam". The Laguna Arts Festival was going on at the time of our stay and we enjoyed seeing the local artist work. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

The perfect spot in Laguna Beach!

  • 5 out of 5
Rod and Catherine's home was the perfect spot for our recent vacation. We were two families - 4 adults and 4 children (age range 6-10) and the set up could not have been more perfect.

From the moment you walk down the driveway, you realize right away that the pictures on VRBO do not do this property justice. The home is just beautiful. The view as you walk through the front door is gorgeous. (I even asked my photographer husband to try and get a better shot for them to feature - but it just isn't possible to capture - you have to see it for yourself).

The large outdoor area off of the main room is where we ate breakfast and had drinks and great conversation each evening. It was my favorite spot in the home. The kids entertained themselves throughout the property - games, multiple tvs and fun outdoor areas to explore.

Everyone agreed that we all felt right at home. Loved all the extras that you don't always get with a rental home - including the quality bedding, fluffy down comforters (needed with the beautiful breezes) and the comfortable pillows.

And Rod went out of his way by ordering a JBL bluetooth speaker while we were there, based on a short conversation we had with him about how much it was enjoyed at home. The Amazon box showed up with not one but two! Very nice touch!

What can I say. Laguna Beach is a great town and this beach cottage is a must! Looking forward to returning!

Owner's Response: Wow, Melissa! This review really just blows me away... The fact that both families in your gang took the time to write wonderful reviews is just beyond. You are wonderful and we hope that you return again and again to enjoy the place. You clearly love it as much as we do. What can we say? Just Wow, and of course. Thank you very much, please come back.

Magical!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at this beautiful home with another family and their children. It was beyond perfect. Beautiful but homey. Light and Bright. So many fun touches! The deck is the perfect location to watch the sunset- we at almost all of our meals out there! The kids all piled in the downstairs bedroom-happy as clams. Anything you could think you would need was here. The homey touches (soft sheets and towels, TWO washers and dryers!, comfy seats and couches everywhere) Moonbeam is the cutest golf cart in all of the OC. I would love to come and stay here again - it was perfection! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Amazing Beach Home

  • 5 out of 5
Rod & Catherine your home far exceeded my expectations! When we walked in we were in awe of how perfect your place was. The home looked exactly like your pictures except better in person. The home was crazy clean and very well stocked with everything from linens to kitchenware, all high end! The grounds were beautiful with many unique touches such as fun sitting areas and lovely fountains. It was so private and quiet. We truly felt at home. Your home is the perfect combination of quaint beach cottage with modern convience. Rod met us upon our arrival with a nice bottle of rose and showed us around. You were wonderful hosts and so accommodating to work with. Our second night there we were making drinks and couldn't find the blender. I texted him and shortly thereafter he returned with one. The funny part though is I didn't see his reply so I went to the neighbors to borrow one.. She was so sweet, I felt like we truly were neighbors! The moonbeam was so much fun and such a great way to get around Laguna Beach. We traveled with our grown girls and son-in-law, so 5 of us. We visited nearby beach towns and we all agreed that Laguna Beach was the best and your home the best in Laguna. We could've stayed another week easily and are already making plans to return! Thank you for graciously sharing your home with us it made our family vacation extremely memorable.

Owner's Response: Colette, Thank you very much for the kind endorsement. Catherine and I are thrilled that you and your family had such a wonderful time at the house. Perhaps one of the most rewarding moments for me was taking that picture of you and your family surrounding your cousin, who is a Chef at Pelican Hill, if I am not mistaken, while he was cooking that amazing meal of sauteed shrimp for all of you. And, yes, they were very tasty, so thank you... ;-)

Wonderful to hear from you and we are so excited you will be coming back soon.

All the best,

Roddy

The best in Laguna Beach!

  • 5 out of 5
If you are fortunate enough to secure a week (or more!) in this fantastic house, you will be in for a real treat! The pictures depict this charming home perfectly, but we were still blown away by the views and location when we arrived! The weather was perfect the whole week, and we spent a lot of time on the deck. The house is exceedingly well equipped. If you don't see what you need, just look in a closet or cupboard and it will be there! Thank you, Rod and Catherine, for sharing your amazing home! It was a perfect vacation and hard to leave!
