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, sky 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 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!

About Roddy Teeple

Roddy, 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

Why Roddy Teeple chose Laguna Beach

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!

What makes this house unique

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.

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!

Wonderfully designed Laguna Beach house

  • 5 of 5

Through Christmas week 2014, my family spent time at this amazing Laguna Beach house. Every detail of our stay was perfect. Roddy and Catherine were wonderful hosts and most accommodating for all seven of us. They were very handy and close by for any questions and their home was stunning. So much loving care has gone into this property. We all often gathered on the deck outside. The view was not only relaxing but so beautiful as well. The perfect place for a family afternoon and meal together! The location of the property is perfect to explore all that Laguna has to offer. We were thrilled to find this home so we could enjoy our family time in Laguna for Christmas. All of us, from 15 months to 71 years old, enjoyed this fantastic house. When our next opportunity comes to enjoy Laguna Beach as a family, we will not hesitate to contact Roddy and Catherine again. My grandson certainly enjoyed the fabulous backyard and swing! We explored the fruit trees and fountains often. My older kids had fun with the golf cart, 'Moonbeam', as well as enjoying their time checking out the neighborhood on their ride. All in all, it was a most memorable Christmas in Laguna Beach. Many thanks to Roddy and Catherine for their genuine kindness in welcoming us to their beautiful house. We so enjoyed our stay!

Stunningly beautiful, relaxed, perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We had an unbelievable holiday at this stunning Laguna home. The owners thought of every detail when creating this oasis of comfort, luxury and beauty. They have successfully created a gorgeous living space that balances beauty and comfort perfectly. From the spectacular views on the deck, to the heavenly comfortable beds, double laundry facilities, thoughtful decor and even groceries in the fridge upon our arrival. The home was spotlessly clean and fresh and equipped with all the little extras you might need-soap, laundry detergent, olive oil, tea, games for the children to play with and I could go on and on....We couldn't have asked for more. Our young daughters loved playing in the beautiful yard with its gorgeous gardens, lemon tree, swing, fireplace for roasting marshmallows and of course touring the town in moonbeam-the coolest golf cart ever. Everything we could have dreamed of for a fantastic family holiday was here. Thank you to Catherine and Roddy for going above and beyond to ensure we would have a perfect holiday. We hope to be back soon!

We had an amazing vacation while staying at this beautiful home. This home is well appointed with all the essentials you would need for a comfortable stay. The interior design was beautiful and it's unbelievable how much thought and detail that has been put into this home. The views were spectacular and the property was beautiful. Rod and Catherine have been amazing to work with from the booking process to answering quick questions regarding the property. It is our pleasure to give this rental a 5star rating! Thank you again for renting your home to us and we look forward to seeing you soon!

A Gem by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent two weeks of utter contentment in this beach house. We de-stressed at night watching the sunsets and whale migrations. The owners were on hand as soon as we arrived to tell us all about the house and even carry in our suitcases. Also, they were available throughout our stay to answer any questions, which was important to us. The house is filled with light and quiet. And the garden is perfection! We have already booked our wintertime vacation here for next year.

Owner's Response: Carol, Thank you so very much for the wonderful review. Catherine and I are thrilled that you and your husband had an enjoyable stay. When we heard that you had spotted 10 Grey Whales in a single day from the deck, we were amazed. We think that is the record. You inspired us to invest in some Nautical Binaculars so that you won't have to bring them for your next trip out. We are very honored and excited that you booked for next year already. Can't wait to have you both back. Kind regards, Roddy and Catherine

the Perfect Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

We had family coming into town and needed a perfect staging area for Thanksgiving. We needed a comfortable home with an ample kitchen, beautiful setting both in and out, and close to town. We found it!!! The spaces are homey yet elegant, the beds are comfortable, the dining areas were perfect for our meals with breathtaking views, and the kitchen was up to the challenge. The extra fridge in the garage was certainly a plus. We all agreed that it was the best Thanksgiving Turkey that we had ever feasted upon. We were delighted to spend time there, and sad to leave. Thanks for sharing your lovely home!

Owner's Response: Raul and Patty, Thank you both very much for the kind review. We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your Thanksgiving at the house and that everything went smoothly, especially the Turkey... We are honored that even as Laguna Beach residents, as you are, you found it rewarding and worthwhile to enjoy the holidays at the home. Thank you very much once again. Kind regards, Roddy and Catherine
