Tom was very nice in welcoming us to his home. He was very thorough in explaining all of the amenities of the home. The view of the ocean was breathtaking and the sound of the waves was very soothing. We had a very enjoyable stay.
Great location - Laguna beach area is gorgeous.
Amazing home in the Laguna Beach hills with wonderful views. Stayed 4 nights listening to the ocean and hiking the beaches. Already planning our next vacation at Toms house.
My family and I loved staying at Tom's home in Laguna Beach. The view is amazing and at the right time of year, you can see dolphins and maybe whales. You really can hear the waves all day and all night if you keep the windows open. The neighborhood is beautiful and the home is well equipped for a family of 4. Beds are comfortable and the home is clean. If you are in good shape and do not have any physical limitations or young kids, this is a wonderful place to stay. There are 36+ stairs to climb and the 10-min walk to the beach is healthy but worth it. Tom makes sure you are comfortable and knowledgeable of the local scene, but then does not hover. Just want to reiterate that the view from the living room is amazing and you will not be disappointed even if the weather does not cooperate. We would love to stay again in the future. Thank you, Tom!
We stayed at Tom's place for a long weekend in March. We had an excellent experience. The view is incredible and location is great to walk to beach, go for a hike or take short drive into town.
The home could use some updating, but the photos were very accurate so home met my expectations. The wall of windows and huge patio made it a great spot to enjoy the great setting and weather. The view is much better than the photos.
A note for families...the home has many stairs and levels, and it is not baby proof. We have a 3.5 yr old and 16 month old. We had to keep a close eye and put up a few barriers, but the girls had a blast exploring and playing on the patio. They also enjoyed being greater by whales a few hundred feet of the beach a short walk from the home.
This a good spot for exploring Laguna.
Tom couldn't have been a more gracious host and the views from the pictures don't do justice to the actual views from the house. Tom was available to us if we needed anything, including a quick stop by the house when we had some wifi issues, which were quickly resolved. The neighborhood was quiet, which was great for us. The main bed wasn't the most comfortable, but that truly was the only item that wasn't a positive. Would definitely stay again here, and hopefully we be able to do so in the future!
Nothing like a good night's rest with the sound of the waves crashing below. Master suite now has a new mattress, replaced April 2015. The other beds were replaced within 1.5 years.
Our 2nd time staying here! Enough said. It's #1 in our book.
Truly the most beautiful views !! Full ocean views from all living spaces. Tom does not do his place justice in the photos. We enjoyed ourselves so much with the fully stocked kitchen and water views from all areas that we almost never went out to dinner.The house is architectural beautiful. The layout and bedroom spaces are so private that everyone can find some time alone.
Tom is a wonderful, gracious host . It is clear that he loves his home ,and we did too! The neighborhood is truly a retreat,and the beach is a short walk away.
Will definitely be back!!

We enjoyed our visit to Laguna Beach and Tom was a gracious host. As advertised, the view was awesome and you could hear the sound of the waves. It was great to wake up to the crashing surf. One note of caution, there are 38 stairs you have to navigate to get to the house, which with luggage can be a bit of a challenge. We made it though, and Tom did offer to assist with getting the luggage up the stairs. The location is a few miles from Dana Point and about 4 miles from Laguna. Unfortunately, we went on Valentines-Presidents Day weekend and the traffic was bad. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay, dinner on the deck and the lights and view of Catalina.
Outstanding views, sounds of waves crashing. Tom was very attentive and helpful. Almost no cell service in any of the bedrooms however (we have Verizon).
