Guestbook comments from the owner
“This house exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 starsReviewed November 28, 2012 for a stay in November 2012
The photos on internet portray exactly what you get when renting this house. My husband and I loved the master suite with huge bathroom and changing area. The elevator from the garage to the main floor was a life savor for us because we had my 85 year old mother and his 88 year old mom with us and they had some elderly relatives come over to visit using walker and a cane. The kitchen was perfect for heating up Thanksgiving dinner for 14 people and there was enough sitting space to accomodate everyone..
The spectacular ocean view from almost all the rooms was my favorie thing about the place. The owner is also very meticulous in caring for the house and anticapating the needs of her guests.
I RECEIVED MY BS DEGREE IN HOTEL, RESTAURANT, AND TRAVEL ADMINISTRATION FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS, AND WAS MOVED OUT TO CALIFORNIA OVER 30 YEARS AGO BY SHERATON CORPORATION. I ENJOY HOSPITALITY VERY MUCH AND GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET INTERESTING AND DIVERSE PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
THE ROUND HOUSE IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE PROPERTIES IN LAGUNA. VERY FEW ARE AVAILABLE FOR ACCOMODATIONS IN THIS CATEGORY OF AMENITIES, DECOR, AND LOCATION. LAGUNA ITSELF IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE COMMUNITIES ON THE ENTIRE WESTERN SEABOARD. I PICKED THIS COMMUNITY FOR IT'S UNIQUE COVES AND BEACHES, IT'S ARTISTIC CULTURE, COUPLED WITH IT'S CHARMING WALKING STREETS, SHOPS, AND RESTAURANTS. IT'S FAMOUS REPUTATION FOR SOME OF THE BEST PEOPLE WATCHING IN THE WORLD AND IT'S DIVERSE WATER SPORTS MAKES LAGUNA BEACH A FAVORITE DESTINATION.
THE UNIQUE BENEFITS OF THE ROUND HOUSE ENABLE YOU TO GET AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE VILLAGE AS WE ARE LOCATED 3 MILES SOUTH OF THE HEAVY PEDESTRIAN AND CAR TRAFFIC. THE PANORAMIC ELEVATED VIEW IS VERY PEACEFUL, AND YOU CAN HEAR THE WAVES CRASH. IT IS A VERY RESTORATIVE EXPERIENCE AT THE ROUND HOUSE WITH EVERY CONCEIVABLE LUXURY FROM CENTRAL AIR, TO BIG FLATSCREENS, TO ELECTRONIC DRAPES, TO COMFY MATTRESSES TO BEAUTIFUL LARGE BATHROOMS, STAINLESS THERMADOR APPLIANCES, JACUZZIS IN AND OUT, LARGE WRAP AROUND DECKS,AD INFINITUM. ...AND THEN THERE IS THE VIEW. NO WORDS OR PICTURES CAN DESCRIBE THE SCOPE OF VIEW FROM PANORAMIC, UNOBSTRUCTED, WAVES CRASHING TO SUNSETS BEHIND CATALINA ISLAND.
