“ Laguna Beach remains one of a few California coastal vintage communities that has retained its original charm and natural beauty. It's no wonder… because there are only four accesses to Laguna Beach, one-if-by-sea
and three-if-by-land… therefore, allowing Laguna Beach to avoid Orange County's suburban sprawl.”

Laguna Beach remains one of the most picturesque vintage coastal towns in California. This seaside village is famous for its rich cultural history as an artist colony set within a tranquil lagoon. One of Laguna's claims to fame is its natural ability to remain a small geographically isolated village. There is only four accesses to Laguna Beach, one-by-sea and three-by-land...the steep hill terrain and deep canyons has allowed Laguna Beach to avoid Orange County's suburban sprawl.

Like many communities of Orange County, Laguna Beach was first populated in the period between 1900 and 1940 with the construction of several 1,000 homes, most were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The original Laguna Village is divided into three original housing neighborhoods anchored by the popular downtown village district marked by the Hotel Laguna and Main Beach.

To the North of downtown is North Laguna and the beautiful neighborhood popularly referred to as “The Tree Streets.” Subdivided in the 1910’s, rows of charming cottages and bungalows line beautiful streets with names like Aster, Magnolia, Hawthorne and Cypress. These homes are Laguna's treasures to a simpler time and highly sought after.

To the south of downtown is Laguna Village, the original enclave that first provided inspiration and sanctuary to the plien aire artist that made Laguna Beach a famous art colony. This eclectic neighborhood has a mixture of vintage homes and newer homes. Niche neighborhoods within Laguna Village with stunning examples of restored Craftsman, Spanish, Norman and Colonial Revival homes include Woods Cove, Blue Bird Canyon, Temple Terrace, Mystic Hills and Sleep Hallow.

To the east, is Laguna Canyon with its almost rural setting along Laguna Canyon Road (Hwy 133) as meanders its way from the Irvine Valley to Laguna Beach. Nestled amongst the steep canyon walls and tall eucalyptus trees are tiny hidden neighborhoods with names like Canyon Acres, Big Bend and Sun Valley.

Other Areas include South Laguna, which for many years was not part of the City of Laguna Beach, but remained unincorporated Orange County. Small “beach shacks” and homes of “eclectic” architecture can be found hidden on quite little streets of South Laguna.
