Best summer “get-away” Vacation Homes in Laguna Beach:
As festival season approaches and the weather warms up, it’s not too late to begin planning a summer escape to the beach! There are summer get-away Vacation Homes in Laguna Beach coming available as “off-season” occupants vacate. This leaves many Vacation Rental Homes still open for the prime summer months! Whether you are dreaming of a “second home” retreat for your family to escape to during weekends and holidays or an extended seasonal sojourn, get ready to soak up the sun!
Conveniently located halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, Laguna Beach is easily accessible by car, train or plane flight. Los Angeles (LAX), Long Beach and John Wayne Airports are a short drive away (John Wayne is just 20 minutes away!). Once you are here, Laguna’s free trolley can whisk you off to the seven miles of golden beaches, dining, and myriad attractions. Home to hundreds of local artists, this colorful Artist Colony is set amidst 22,000 acres of beautiful protected wilderness “green space” that rises above the Pacific Ocean. No matter what age you are, Laguna Beach has a perfect stretch of sand for you to enjoy!
Beach Cottage Rentals to Luxury Coastal Estate Homes for Rent
From charming beach cottages to luxury coastal estates, fun in the sun begins by determining your preferred criteria. Do you need a large home to accommodate visiting family members and friends? Or do you prefer a small beach cottage to get away from it all? The larger the place, the higher the rental rate will be. Likewise, the closer to the ocean, the more it will cost. Therefore, a variety of options exist and your budget will be the first item to determine before you venture out.
Since you will likely be spending most of your time outdoors, barbequing or soaking up the sun, you typically won’t require as much room as your primary home. Narrow down your primary needs in terms of bedroom count and space. Also, is an ocean view a priority? Do you need a yard for those kids or a pet? Laguna Beach has many turn-key vacation homes available within walking distance of the beach or nestled along the hillsides of this charming coastal village. There is sure to be a rental home that meets with all or most of your preferences. After that, decide what locations are most important. Every neighborhood in Laguna Beach has its own special attributes and local amenities. There really are no “bad areas” in Laguna Beach, but it’s good to know the options.
North Laguna offers tree-lined streets and lush walking paths along Heisler Park. A gentle ramp down to Diver’s Cove Beach makes this location ideal for vacationers wanting to avoid lots of steps. Most locations available in North Laguna also offer an easy stroll into the Village area where restaurants, shops, and galleries await.
For instance, the spectacular property at 1137 Marine Drive is now available for the month of August. This Ocean Front Home with five bedrooms is situated on the bluff overlooking Crescent Bay Beach (see 1137 Marine Drive Ocean View on the left). Completely turn-key with direct beach access.

Laguna Village area puts you right in the heart of all the action. Accessible to everything Laguna Beach has to offer – Main Beach, boutiques, numerous alfresco cafes, art galleries, and Laguna’s famed Art Festivals. The homes available in this area range from small cottages with a few larger estates tucked into the hillsides. Most have ocean views. Beachfront homes overlooking the sand, with waves crashing just below, make for an inspiring retreat. Also noteworthy, the newly designated historical “Hip District” is a haven for boutique-lovers with its variety of small local shops, book stores, restaurants, and surf-friendly beaches just steps from many rental homes.

WOODS COVE AND PEARL DISTRICT
Woods Cove and the Pearl District offers access to some of the most secluded beaches along the coast. Still steps to many restaurants and shops, this lush wooded area is mostly residential with many streets ending above spectacular rocky coves. Swimming and Paddleboarding are popular activities along this stretch of shoreline. Therefore, a sunset stroll to watch picturesque Catalina Island sunsets should be on any beach-goers bucket list.
Our Turn-key, Furnished Rental at 2210 Crestview Dr. (photo above) has panoramic Ocean Views overlooking Woods Cove and Village areas all the way to Catalina Island. With three bedrooms, four baths and two office spaces (one with fireplace with forever views!), this is the perfect “Home Away from Home” in Laguna Beach.

South Laguna spills out just south of Montage Resorts Treasure Island Park and the Golf Course at The Ranch at Laguna Beach. The eclectic shops and restaurants in this area are tucked along the dramatic Aliso and Wood Canyons that taper down gentle slopes to the shoreline below. Moreover, beaches here are wide open spaces – some with fire pits on the sand (at Aliso Creek Beach). Treasure Island Park overlooks one of the most scenic beaches along the Southern California coast, oft painted by Plein-air artists from around the world. The “South Village” area has a small-town feel, with its tumble of cafes and stores. With the advantage of the sloping terrain, most homes enjoy sweeping ocean views. Consequently, many Vacation Rentals here range from beachy-chic cottages with Catalina Island views to spacious contemporary homes with panoramic coastline views.
