Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Laguna Beach - Laguna Vista-by the ocean-

Beautiful, classy, luxurious & opulent Villa - 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Laguna Vista is a truly outstanding beach villa situated in a remarkable mid-Laguna setting. The property is perched directly above Cress Beach and is elegantly gated for an exclusive vacation experience. The sounds of dramatic crashing waves mix with alluring ocean breezes to delight the senses while relaxing inside or out. This luxurious and posh modern-day cottage features 3 bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms in approximately 1400 square feet. Laguna Vista is charmingly upscale – a graceful home-away-from-home with luxurious custom finishes, warm contemporary décor and thoughtful attention to detail at every turn.

Completely renovated in 2007, the Laguna Vista cottage exudes an upscale European feel with dark wood accents, impeccable craftsmanship and contemporary designer décor. Gorgeous flooring flows through the villa in a mix of uniquely sculptured French limestone and wide plank French Oak imported from the Netherlands. Classic touches such as crown moulding and extra tall baseboards provide a rich feel, as do the custom window coverings and plush furnishings.

Laguna Vista boasts an amazing gourmet kitchen, where family and friends are certain to gather and linger. Anchored by a large granite-topped island with 5 barstools and room for dining, this kitchen appeals to chefs and casual cooks alike. The upscale space is equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry, recessed lighting, wine storage and ample marble counter tops. Every tool necessary to cook up a wonderful feast is supplied in this gourmet’s dream kitchen.

The open floorplan of Laguna Vista effortlessly blends the kitchen space into the adjacent living area, enhancing relaxation and social interaction. A stunning hand-tiled fireplace is central to the living room and provides warmth no matter the season. This stylish and refined living area features a large flat screen TV with DVD player, a cozy sofa and several chairs to accommodate the whole family or group. Just off the living room is a large den/bedroom which affords some of the best ocean views around. A Hemingway-style desk provides a comfortable area for using the provided personal computer and complimentary wireless internet access is also available. The den/bedroom features a queen-size Hancock and Moore leather sofa sleeper – a brand well known for its exceptional construction and exceedingly comfortable bed. Sliding glass doors ensure privacy in the den, plus peace and quiet when bedtime arrives.

Laguna Vista’s spacious master bedroom is elegantly appointed and includes a luxurious queen size bed featuring a top of the line air-loom pillow top mattress which guarantees a plush and supremely comfortable night’s sleep. The sound of crashing waves additionally contributes to a restful slumber. The en-suite master bathroom is equally lavish, featuring a full size tub/shower combo, marble counters and superb lighting. The villa’s third bedroom is also a luxurious haven, filled with luxury linens, an air-loom pillow top mattress and plenty of storage space. An additional bathroom and a powder room/half-bath are included, both featuring spa-like touches, imported tilework and modern fixtures.

Just outside Laguna Vista’s front door, guests will delight in the large courtyard. This thoughtfully planned space features several fire pits (one for each rental) and a tiered conversation area to help make the most of evenings outdoors. A gas barbecue is available for guest’s use as well as an outdoor hot and cold shower - which comes in handy after a long day on the beach. Beach access is conveniently located right in front of the villa, via the public staircase leading down to Cress Beach. Beach chairs, umbrella and towels are all included with the rental, as are the bed linens, kitchen and bath towels. A GE washer & dryer can be found inside the home and for maximum convenience, guests are allowed to park 2 vehicles in the home’s secured driveway parking area. In a prime Laguna Beach locale such as Cress Street, this is an invaluable asset.

Spacious and elegant, Laguna Vista provides a chic and luxurious upscale accommodation for your beach adventures.

With its high-tech touches and sumptuous décor, this villa is certain to please even the most particular of guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time on our vacation in Laguna Beach. The house was perfect for our family. We would definitely consider staying again if we made another trip out!

Nice updates on home - busy street only drawback. Great location

  • 4 of 5

Having the beach steps literally outside your home is fantastic. The home had great updates. Nice layout and very nice layout.

We enjoyed the unit very much. I don't know how the common area would feel if all 3 units were rented out at the same time. While there only ours was rented so we had it all to your self. Hard to say I guess, but while to ourselves we really enjoyed the fireplaces outdoors. While you don't have a beach connecting to your unit that you can see from inside -- it didn't matter much cause it's steps away as soon as you step outside.

The main drawback was the busy street. That's the main reason we didn't rate it a 5 out of 5.

At night time people were constantly walking by and making small talk -- which really makes it tough to have a private get away. Since the fence is open gate they can see right in. Maybe some shrubbery would help or a closed in fence?

If this place had more privacy from the busy road it would be perfect. Luckily it's a cup de sac so it helps minimize it, and I get it -- it's a public beach so of course your not going to 100% private but atleast some buffer would be nice.

I would consider going back: the parking for us was nice since we got the larger unit we had a driveway parking.

Overall a great experience - the owner even let us check in early. I will recommend this place , but to give my honest feedback if it had more privacy I would've given it a 5 star.

Great place great location

This is the 2nd year we have stayed at the house. The beach is less crowed than the main beach and it is located in walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We will be back again.

The property was well kept and provided everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

We all had a great time. Thank goodness parking was provided, because there certainly isn't any street parking available. The proximity to the beach was the best part of the vacation. We also lucked out with beautiful weather

This is a perfect property for enjoying all Laguna has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Cress street properties at least ten times and can guarantee we will be back again sometime in the near future. Location and amenities couldn't be better! The fenced in courtyard is very secure and provides a wonderful outdoor area for my children to play. On site parking, direct beach access and close proximity to my favorite book store make this my happy, happy place! Denise and Simi are always quick to respond to concerns or requests and booking though home away is quick and easy. I can't say enough how happy I am to have found this gem of a rental in the heart of Laguna.

Perfect for our family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The location was ideal, just steps from the ocean and a quick walk to restaurants and public beaches and parks. The home was perfect for our family of seven which included six adults and a 21 month old. The home was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting by the fire pit at night. We would stay here again if our travels take us back to Laguna and we would recommend it to friends.

Fantastic Home in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Laguna Vista. The home has everything needed to comfortably house 6 people. My two kids loved being able to walk out the front door and down the steps to the beach without having to cross a busy street. The fire pits were great in the evenings, and I could hear the waves from my bed at night.

The house is a 15 minute walk from Main Beach, and there are lots of great restaurants and shops to browse just outside the home.

The property manager was very responsive when the Internet and hot water went out for a few hours and both were back up quickly.

This is a great place for a relaxing vacation.
