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!

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.

Rod 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.

Terrific Location With Excellent Views

We had a fantastic stay through the winter months in amazing Laguna Beach. The house offered fantastic views, California vintage decor, an easy walk to town, and a very accommodating host.The deck especially gave the feeling of overlooking a town in the south of France, without having to fly to Europe. The landscaping gave an excellent feeling of privacy and it was joyous to watch the hummingbirds in the morning and the stunning sunsets at night. We can't wait to return again some day and would highly recommend the house to our friends

My family of four (two adults and two small children) stayed at this property for a week in November 2013. First, we were blown away by the property itself. The home is gorgeous. Beautiful wood floors, finishes, and views. The kitchen is small, but well stocked and the appliances were so fun to use. Second, the home itself was well stocked. We were surprised at the high-end bathroom supplies (Honest Company soap for the kiddos), the pack-n-play had a bassinet attachment, and there were even extra diapers available. For the adults, there was wine and supplies for lighting the outdoor fire. The beds were comfortable, the grounds clean, and overall we were very pleased with our stay. Rod was great to work with and was genuinely concerned that we had a pleasant stay. We didn't get the chance to use Moonbeam, but it looked like fun! We did make the trip to Disney and to the San Diego Zoo. Both were within a hour's drive. We look forward to staying at this property again!

Fabulous stay and views at this lovely home. The owner was very accomodating, the neighbors were friendly. The place was spacious and literally had everything you could think of that you would need in the kitchen, laundry, etc. If I need to go back with the group of 10 that we were..would definitely return! Thank You Again Rod!

We loved this vacation rental. The view is incredible !!! Rod's home is super clean with so many well thought out details. The master bedroom was very comfortable & the rain shower was so nice after a day of fun at the beach. We prepared our meals in the very well equipped kitchen & enjoyed the beautiful sunset from the deck in the evening. We were very comfortable in this sweet place & will be back again in the future. Rod was very friendly & helpful. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise.

Love, love this property!

This home is centrally located, close to downtown and a half mile from the beach. Has perfect views from the back deck, and is in a quiet neighborhood. We traveled with our 17, 15, and 13 year old, and they were never bored. A 5 minute walk to the local high school/rec use pool, so that clinched the deal for us. We are northern californians, and this house truly will give you the quintessential southern ca vacation feel. The house is super clean, and Rod, the owner, is easy to deal with and generous. I wish we could have stayed two weeks. Best daily walk, take Temple Hill all the way up to Alta Laguna Park. 5 mile killer hike.
Owner's Response: Lynn and Joseph, Thank you very much for the wonderful review. We are so glad you had such an excellent time with your family this summer. Hearing comments like this makes everything so worthwhile. I love, love your comment about your teenagers never being bored... That's about a as high a complement as one could ask for, though we won't take the credit, which is due largely to beautiful Laguna Beach and great parents. Thank you and come back again.

Laguna Beach is both a 'get away' for locals from Orange County as well as a destination resort for global travelers. Half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, it offers convenient access within an hour or so from some of the finest entertainment anywhere, with an ocean breeze and birds' eye view of Catalina Island to welcome you back...

This property is ideally located for a balance of being in the beach scene, close to town, combined with spectacular, breathtaking views.
