For those interested in purchasing a property in the Laguna Beach area for vacation rentals it's important to understand the steps that are involved in preparing your home for a weekly rental.  First, not all homes and neighborhoods are designated for weekly rentals.  The city has a great service where you can call in the address of the Laguna Beach home and they can tell you if they home qualifies.  There are many factors that goes into this qualification process but mainly deals with the density of homes in the area and if it conducive for weekly rentals based on room for parking, noise factors, etc.

Camel Point is a quiet residential neighborhood of 15 homes located in a premier oceanfront location.  The community offers 8 homes located on the ocean front with an additional 7 ocean view properties.  This is a small gated community that offers direct access down to the beach as pictured below.  Since the community is home to only 15 properties homes rarely come on the market here.  The neighborhood has a nice mixture of contemporary as well as older historic homes.  An ocean view property is now being offered for sale for $4,595,000.  I had a chance to preview this home and the 5 bedroom home really did offer nice views of the ocean.

The Coast Royal area of Laguna Beach has some of the best panoramic views of the ocean in the desirable South Laguna area.  The Coast Royal is ideally situated in the hills with a short distance down to the West Beach which starts at Table Rock and ends at Aliso Creek beach.  This is a popular area with a nice variety of single family homes that are built in various architectural styles.  Some of my favorite contemporary style homes can be found in this area that have awe inspiring views with clean modern lines.  The streets wind up the hill and in some parts can be a little narrow but when you see the view it's worth all the effort to get up to this location.  The neighborhood is a non-gated community filled with custom homes built in the last 86 years.
