Laguna Beach Luxury

Laguna Beach

For clear waters, beautiful coves, and equally beautiful people, head straight to picturesque Laguna Beach. This picturesque seaside village started as an Art Colony in the 1900s. Today, it boasts seven miles of spectacular coastline, with more than 30 unique coves and beaches. Palm trees, colorful bougainvilleas, and tropical gardens adorn the charming cottages along the beach. A vacation rental in one of the charming beach cottages is the perfect way to feel like a local.


Monarch Beach
This exclusive community in Dana Point not only gives vacationers private beachfront access, but also boasts some of the area’s best golfing and tennis. Discerning travelers enjoy the exclusive privileges that come with a gated community by staying in one of Monarch Beach’s popular vacation rentals. Visit the Dana Point Yacht Club and charter a sailboat or yacht and watch the sunset over the Pacific. Don’t miss the family-friendly Festival of Whales held every March over two weekends or the Dana Point California Wine Festival held each April.


Manhattan Beach
Manhattan Beach Shoreline

Enjoy the small-town feel of this family-friendly beach that’s a paradise for surfers, beach volleyball players and sun worshipers alike. Take in the coastline while biking along the 22-mile South Bay Bicycle Trail, or take a stroll along the “Strand”, a paved pedestrian walkway. Like all the SoCal beaches, Manhattan Beach is lined with luxury condos and homes. Fortunately, you don’t need a star on the walk of fame to live like a Hollywood star during your stay. A beachfront vacation rental brings the beach to your doorsteps. Watch the sunset from your private balcony and fall asleep to the crashing surf – a SoCal beach vacation doesn’t get any better than this!
