Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Orange County

Spanish Revival Home with World Class Views, Location & Charm

Three bedroom, two bath, new king, queen and double beds, all with pillow top mattresses, plus a Shabby Chic queen sleeper sofa- sleeps a total of 6-8 adults. Air mattresses and crib available upon request for children or larger families.

Once you set foot on this property you won't want to leave...but if you do... you're only 5 blocks from 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, great restaurants, art galleries and shopping are all within enjoyable walking distance from this charming home.

The home has been lovingly updated and decorated by the owners, one of which is a home 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 at very cool rope arm chair.

Have fun cooking in the retro styled kitchen with a fully restored O'Keefe and Merritt 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 home designer and together with Roddy, has lovingly made this this home both comfortable 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 Orange County

First of all, we couldn't resist the views. Secondly, 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's, 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 beautifully hidden from the street. Once you step into the courtyard you are taken away to another time and can instantly feel the original charm and soul of this home. For those who value authentic California living and uncompromising views, you will find that you won't want to leave!

What makes this house unique

AMAZING VIEWS of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island!!

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!

Our new favorite

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about staying in your lovely home. We felt as if we were guests rather than renters. The set up was perfect for our family. The view was breathtaking, and the cool ocean air felt amazing. Thank you for greeting us in person to show us around your home. We were impressed by the personal touch. We will be back. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the taking the time to provide us with this wonderful review. We often wonder if our guests actually feel like guests, so this is very helpful. Also, we have gone back and forth with taking the time to welcome our guests and provide a walk through of the property, which we normally try to do, if at all possible. It is helpful to know that this is something that you appreciate and hopefully, it makes for a smooth transition and more enjoyable stay. Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you and your family back again soon. Kind regards, Roddy and Catherine

Just as great second time around!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row staying at your lovely, charming home. It was our first family vacation with our two new grandchildren. My daughter and her husband stayed with us with their 7 month old daughter and our son who lives in Orange, CA. was able to visit with his wife and their 5 month old son. The guys loved BBQing in the front courtyard and we all enjoyed eating on the upper deck with the spectacular view of the ocean. I personally loved waking up in the morning and enjoyng a cup of coffee on the upper deck. The backyard swing was a favorite place to rock the babies and visit. It was so nice being able to walk into town and grab a cup of coffee in the morning or lunch in the afternoon. My daughter commented on how nice it is to rent a vacation home where you actually want to stay and enjoy your surroundings. Roddy and Catherine, thanks again for your hospitality and your wonderful house. Laguna Beach and your home have become our

favorite place to vacation.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property. It was event better! Roddy met us again to show us the new speakers that worked for the deck. As always it was a wonderful experience. You feel at home as soon as you walk in! Beautiful views, personal touches and another magical week! Celebrated a birthday, roasted marshmallows, toasting the sunset on the deck. Perfection! We are hoping to plan a third trip another time. Thanks again for sharing your home!

Like a dream!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything I had imagined it to be and more. After I had secured my reservation I kept checking online to make sure it was actually going to happen because the pictures and descriptions seemed almost too perfect and sure enough I was contacted by them and it all became a reality. It was exactly all it said it would be and way beyond that. Catherine and Roddy were extremely hospitable and very helpful for everything we needed. They made sure to be there to meet us in person when we arrived. The house was a dream for us. The view of the ocean is even better than in the pictures, plus the pictures don't capture the completely refreshing sea air or the tranquil sound of the water fountain trickling in the backyard. Catherine's eye for decor inside and outside the house plus their knowledge of how to make everything unbelievably comfortable (beds, furniture, etc.) were all incredible bonuses. Everything was perfectly clean. Such a peaceful, relaxing place. We slept so well. We have no complaints. It would be so wonderful to return. Thank you Roddy and Catherine for sharing your sweet home!

Amazing Laguna Beach home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed in this home for our 1 week vacation in Laguna Beach. We could not have chosen a better home near the beach to enjoy with family. Everything was just amazing and so comfortable/warm with the home and tons of great space to enjoy including my favorite deck looking out onto the Laguna village neiborhood and ocean. Both Roddy and Catherine (owners) met us for check in to go over all the details of the home and they were very welcoming and nice. There is nothing we could say negative about our stay and would highly recommend this propery to anyone wanting a beutiful Laguna Beach vacation. We hope to return again in the future for sure!

Car: recommended

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.
