About this listing
Classic beach house, shingle shake style, post & beam ceilings, double balconies (ocean view from both) and an open floor plan. Located in the eclectic city of Laguna Beach, CA, one of the most picturesque cities on the Southern California Riviera! (Sunsets and beaches rival the South of France).
Grab your cup of tea or enjoy a glass of wine, read the L.A. Times, or enjoy yet another beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean from one of your two private decks .... exceptional views of Catalina Island and downtown Laguna Beach. The view is just as spectacular in the evening with city lights and an endless sea of night time stars...is that Orion's belt or the Big Dipper? (We have no neighborhood street lights so our skies open up in the evening).
Relax by the wood burning fireplace (it can get cold at night!), take a nap out on the deck, listen to the buzz of the hummingbirds as they fly by (yes, it is so quiet at times you can hear the flutter of their wings!), or enjoy a Net Flix movie on the Internet ready flat panel in the Guest Room...some days the only thing you hear is the owl in the neighborhood.
Large comfortable Master sleeping quarters with Queen sized bed, 2 closets, private balcony. Sit back, relax enjoy the Ocean view while having breakfast in bed!
Guest Room is as relaxing as it looks . . . direct access to a zen style garden that sleeps tranquility. Down feather bed, comfortable, luxurious.
The beaches and the great dining are close by, but the views keep you mesmerized-endless beautiful sunsets from the decks.

*As I have open stairs on the second level, the house is not set up for small children or Seniors.
Local shuttle bus available ($1.00) for pick up in the neighborhood-takes you all over Laguna! It is only 2 blocks from the house.
*IMPORTANT: I have had a cat in my home at various times and I think it is important to note this as some people have allergies to cats and are very sensitive to this.
*3 Night Minimum Booking.
**I hesitate to rent to Guests with Children and although I love them, they tend to break and damage things in my home. Just an fyi......
Guests have access to the entire house.
Other Things to Note
We don't rent to Guests with children. It is not that we don't love them (I grew up in a household of "8"), but we have learned through trial and error that the house does not work for children-for both the Guests & for us (as the homeowners who live in the house when it is not rented). Thank you for understanding.
As this is my personal home, I ask you to please comply with a couple of considerations during your stay:
•Please do not cut on the white Caesar stone countertop in the kitchen, cutting boards are provided in the cabinets next to the stove. I also ask you not to place red wine or any dark beverage on the kitchen counter top. Although it is a manufactured stone product, it WILL stain or can chip.
•Please use coasters on any wood surfaces in the house, particularly the bar, end table and coffee table. A wet glass WILL leave a water ring (quickly discovered by a Guest on the mid-century sofa side table).
•Please do not drink the liquor in the bar. If you do, you will not receive any of your security deposit back. All liquor at my home is accounted for so please purchase any liquor for your own personal consumption at the grocery store nearby. You are WELCOME however, to use any cooking spices and/or any condiment in the refrigerator or cupboard. My kitchen is your kitchen!
•This is a NON SMOKING house. If you plan on smoking, please don't rent from me.
CHECK OUT POLICY (10:00 a.m.)
•Please load all dirty dishes into the dishwasher and run it on the normal cycle. Dishwasher soap/pods are under the sink.
•Please close and lock all windows and doors.
•Please turn off all lights and turn down the Nest thermostat (if you used the heater).
•Leave house key where you found it.
Zen Oasis truly lived up to its name. Interesting decor, great vibe and fabulous location. The well-appointed kitchen was a huge bonus and, even though there was food left by the owners, it was easy to keep our own stuff separate. Having the washer and dryer downstairs was nice as towels needed to be dried in the humidity. Quiet and respectful neighborhood. We spent most of our time on the top floor (pictured prominently on the site). We would definitely come back here and look forward to seeing how the owners proceed with their renovation of certain areas.

Ann's home is absolutely wonderful. The place comfortably accommodated the four of us. The decor is beautiful and the location is outstanding. We spent most evenings on the patio marveling at the wonderful Laguna sunset. Ann was a great host and her instructions were simple and to the point. I highly recommend renting her place.
Nice house as advertised. Well set up and clean with beautiful views and comfy bed! Nicely renovated with modern furnishings. It is right up the hill which gives you the amazing views but no way you could walk to town, if that is what you are after. All in all we had a great time.
Yes the view is why I bought this house! The hills are great for a workout, but not a walk to the beach. Their is local hiking just a block away, tennis courts around the corner as well. The local trolley picks up at the end of the street, so that eliminates looking for parking when going to the beach-it drops you at almost any place in town!
House was beautifully furnished and in a great location high above Laguna. The views of the ocean were very good and fairly panoramic. There is hiking nearby, up the street and quick access to all of Laguna down the hill, including a shopping center, beaches, etc. The house was very comfortable and the bed was fantastic. Everything was in working order. The area is very quiet and serene and on a dead-end street filled with nice homes. Since this is the owner's house, there wasn't a ton of closet space but we made due. Great, new bathroom and very nice, comfortable deck. Ann was prompt with her replies and very helpful.
We had a fabulous time staying at Ann's beautiful Laguna Beach home. Her place was exactly as advertised and everything went smoothly as far as communicating with Ann. We highly recommend staying there.
everthing was perfect.
