Laguna BeachFebruary 21, 2015 in the United States
My new home is on the 2nd floor of an older building, as all are in Laguna Beach, but it has been well maintained. It's an unusual layout with a long, narrow kitchen, living and dining area. The dining table is collapsed against one wall as there is a murphy bed on the opposing wall. The location of the condo is great because it's in the centre of town except it's on a hill top.
As expected, I was not assigned an ocean view unit as owners get priority. Instead I am facing the Pacific Coast Highway which has lots of traffic day and night. The speed limit is supposed to be 35 mph but that seems irrelevant to most drivers. I do have a huge balcony with a large BBQ that I may or may not use. Sitting on the balcony watching cars and trucks whiz by does not sound too appealing. I am in a corner unit so I do have a partial ocean view from one side of the balcony. It certainly isn't ideal but it is comfy.Read more
