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).
This place is beautiful!!! Tom was very accommodating, kind, and informative. If you are gonna stay in Laguna, this place is awesome.
The pictures can't do this home justice, the views are simply breathtaking!
Tom is a wonderful host, he gave us the space that we wanted, but was available if we needed anything.
The house is beautiful & Laguna Beach is the perfect location to both unwind & explore the South Californian Coast. My advice is book this house.....& relax
Tom met us with a warm smile and happy welcome. He told us all about the secrets of the house and the all the close activities happening in Laguna Beach. The house was great. The private deck was so amazing. Looking at the crystal blue ocean waves made us feel as if we were in a tropical paradise. Great neighborhood. We were able to walk to the beach in 10 minutes along private neighborhood streets.
Tom's house is exactly as listed! We could actually hear and see the surf from his hilltop house and viewed glorious sunsets from the deck! It is in walking distance of the beach, canyon hiking trails, and a nice public 9-hole golf course. The house is spacious enough for a family of four and is comfortably appointed. He left helpful information about local restaurants and sights and was responsive to our needs (when the internet wasn't working, he called the cable company right away). We would definitely rent this house again.
