Heaven in Laguna

One of my favorite places to visit when I'm in Southern Cali is this sweet little beachfront located off of Diamond Street.
I love walking past two particular homes located right on the beach.  The first home was once owned by Betty Davis, and the second home... well all I can say is he or she is one lucky home owner and you will see why:

Betty Davis' home on the right as you walk down to the beach.

My husband Matt and my little sweetie Sawyer.

I love the timeless tudor style.

If you look closely you can see a large "D" on the chimney.

This next home Is so simple in the front, but at the same time I couldn't help but be so drawn to it.  It's perfect in every way... who cares about the front when you get to walk down the side and see its true charm.

Look at that view....

Simple wood shakes with white trim and to top it off... slate!
It doesn't get better than that for the perfect beach home!

Notice the shower as you walk up the stairs...

This gorgeousness is steps away from the home!

My three boys enjoying the view!

It took me hours to get my kids off that beach!
Next time your in Laguna, check out the beach off Diamond street!  Trust me it's worth it!
Have a wonderful week!

  2. It's just not fair. There are so many goregoes homes in that area w/ such amazing views.

    Have you ever been to the Montage Hotel in Laguna?? Stunning you should check it out.

    MMMmm you are making miss Southern Cali right now as it is raining outside. :)

  3. I am right around the corner on vacation, ha ha... guess where we are going tomorrow? :)

  4. I was just going to ask Megan's question. The beach in front of the Montage Resort in Laguna (called Treasure Island Beach) is gorgeous, as is the hotel. You don't want to miss it!

    Long time lurker here - I love your blog and your design aesthetic!

  5. So I've officially decided I want you to help me with my next home. Not just because your so good at this, but also because you are so fun to hang with. I've looked at some of your recent pics and you have such a great way of knowing what's beautiful. I just wish we lived next to each other so we could just hang and do everyday stuff. Your creative genius is just a perk.

  6. Hi, I'm your newest follower. I love your blog and your pictures are amazing! Thanks for sharing! ~Liz

  7. It's one of my favorite streets in Laguna. But there are many! Loving your blog, I'm getting so inspired. xo Lidy

  8. I "grew up" at WOODS COVE...everyday at the beach ~ but us California NATIVES (especially, Laguna NATIVES) don't ever refer to the state as "Cali" (aarrgh...) I think it's a term the neophytes dreamed up. Wood's is the perfect little beach to take young children ~ especially the tide-pools at low tide. Bette Davis owned the house sometime after she sold her L.A. ranch. She then moved back east where she spent the remainder of her life. The "D" has stayed. The 3-story home immediately right (as you're looking at the water) was rented almost every summer by Michael Landon (Little House on the Prairie) and Michael was always pulling pranks & joking around. Ahhh... youth!
