Overview

About the property

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.

Great location for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house....So perfect for our families getaway.

Denise was wonderful to work with and the house was simply incredible. You are so close to the beach, open the doors & windows and listen to the sounds of the ocean at night. Super close to lots of shops, restaurants and other activities. We will be back and would highly recommend.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

We picked the perfect spot for our week-long beach vacation. The two-bedroom, plus den was even better than we thought it would be. The parking is amazing - you get a driveway that can accommodate as many as four cars if you park strategically. That included my Yukon XL. There is great access through the back door near the driveway for easy loading and unloading and an amazing view out of the front door from the porch and shared fire pit and BBQ area.

The kitchen as everything - coffee maker, toaster, blender... you don't need to bring a thing. There are even some basic spices and cooking supplies. Plenty of plates and utensils.

They load you up with plenty of paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels) and even soap and shampoo in each bathroom.

We loved that the master had its own bathroom and that there where two other bathrooms. The full size washer dryer was super helpful.

Inside the place is decorated very nicely. Hardwood and tile floors, granite counter tops, amazing lighting in every room. The air conditioning kept us cool. The four units are in the main living area, and one in each bedroom/den.

There is entirely too much furniture in the place for my taste. It is all nice, I just wish there were about 10 fewer pieces. No one needs an armoire. But that could just be us.

There is plenty of space in the trash bins, which are right outside your back door. And the manager even comes on trash day to put them out for you.

We requested and paid for daily maid service. It was not cheap but - was totally worth it. You bring a ton of sand back from the beach.

Since we have cable TV at home, it was nice to have at the beach house too. Also, we used their HDMI cable (used to run a DVD player) to hook up our laptop and stream Amazon Prime.

I saw notes about the street being busy before we made the reservation and they are right. We love it. The action makes it feel alive. You are across the street - like maybe 100 steps from restaurants and bars.

The walk down to the beach is quick but if you are carrying beach supplies like easy-ups or chairs keep in mind there are a lot of stairs. It worked great for us. Even grandpa (94 years old) did just fine going down and up.

The local Ralph's has long wood spears for roasting s'mores (which we did overnight around the fire pit).

Postmates, Lyft and Uber all serve the property. You can generally get a Lyft within about 4 minutes.

Great Place to stay in Laguna - hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We rented all 3 cottages for our wedding and had some of our closest friends and family stay with us. The cottages were great, and we really appreciated the warm welcome from Denise as well as the amenities. The location is perfect, right at the top of the steps from the beach and walking distance from everything in Laguna Beach. We especially appreciated the outdoor space and fireplaces which were a great place to sit and watch the world go by. We would definitely stay here again if we had another occasion.

SoCal Vacay 2017'

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival the property manager greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us around the beautiful and cozy property. She was kind enough to check on us a couple days into our stay by phone. The house was well furnished and met all pour needs. Its location is great and offered wonderful views of the ocean.

This property also offers a very short walk to some great food and drinks as well as nice art galleries and fun shopping. We would recommend this property with a smile.

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.
