Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. We had 4 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 toddler, the place accommodated all of us nicely. It has two out door areas as well for relaxing and enjoying a beverage of your choice, an ocean view rooftop deck, and a lush patio garden. It’s close to the trolley stop, and walking distance to the beach. It’s a little further down from where we normally stay but I would sure stay there again. It stayed very cool within the house, each room has its own AC unit. I highly recommend this place.

We hit the jackpot with this home!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by thanking Bill and Paul for the amazing hospitality of providing us with everything we could possibly need! Bill welcomed us with open arms along with 2 house keys for the beautiful penthouse.

Going up the stairs we got a small tour seeing the kitchen with everything we needed to make some delicious homemade meals! The family room and dining room was flourished with gorgeous art pieces everywhere. We had a gorgeous flower arrangement filled with beautiful roses on the coffee table along with 2 small flower arrangements in each bathroom! The bedrooms were perfect and had a gorgeous street and ocean view of the beautiful city of Laguna.

Now to the patio garden! It took our breath away 😭?♥️. This was one of the most relaxing part of our trip, being able to sit in this garden was a plus in renting out this home! We got a visit from a few hummingbirds. Going up more steps outside we got a breathtaking view of the sunset.

Back Inside, we were accommodated with items needed for the kitchen and laundry! Dish soap, laundry detergent, body wash and shampoo! There was an iron with an ironing board and a whole closet filled with bath and beach towels.

Everything was of 2 miles in walking distance. We went to Ralph’s for our grocery shopping. The montage resort was a mile away and had a beautiful beach to enjoy the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. The pizza bar was delicious! Gelato paradiso had some amazing pistachio and dark chocolate hazelnut gelato. We had a fancy breakfast at c’est la vie. And enjoyed our afternoon walks downtown.

I overheard my mom on the phone saying that this was one of the best and most beautiful houses we ever stayed at. And we will definitely visit the gem in the future! We can’t wait to tell all our family and friends about this penthouse because everyone should experience this beautiful home away from home.

Thank you Bill & Paul!

Fabulous - You won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful. Very well furnished, very cosy - you feel at home immediately. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well appointed, enough for us to make Christmas dinner and several other meals. The garden area is lush and private, and the rooftop deck - we took our appetizers and drinks up there every night to watch the sunset. Beautiful!

The beach is only 2 blocks away, and if you have a dog, it's dog-friendly all day long in the winter, and after 6:00pm in the summer (and in the early morning). There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, and you can get to the main area of Laguna Beach by way of a tram that comes along every once in a while. Also, there are several parking garages in the downtown area that are convenient.

Plenty to do in the surrounding areas - we used to live nearby so we mostly had fun seeing our old haunts and going to the beach. If you're a foodie, I highly recommend having breakfast at Ramos House Café near the train depot in San Juan Capistrano. There's live music at Trevor's at the Tracks with drinks/food in the afternoon, and this building used to be the depot.

Lots of resorts nearby to get your glitz on, plenty of places to walk or bike ride, loads of shopping.

Book this place!
