I think the liberal part is what he's poo-pooing. It's not Kansas-near-the-coast enough like LN.

Why would you want to buy a rental home in Laguna Niguel? It's just a nice, suburban community. Look into beach towns for vacation homes instead, that would be a better choice. Have you ever considered Dana Point? It's a nice beach town with some great beaches and is like 2 miles from South Laguna hotspots.

Love Dana Point. I often take my dog there for a stroll along the harbor.

Do you think it could it's a place to have a suitable holliday rental home ?

This is an old thread, so maybe the OP has already made his decision, but I would not recommend that anyone buy a vacation rental home in Laguna Niguel because it is not a vacation spot and it's not "beachy." There is no beach in LN and it is not an oceanside city. It’s totally suburban and much like Mission Viejo, but a few degrees cooler. There are no similarities that I can think of between Laguna Beach and Laguna Niguel. The vibes, shops, galleries and scenery are completely different.

Funny that it started as a seaside community.

LN is clean, safe, and beautiful -- surrounded by parks and beaches.
It's also a very stable family-oriented community with a well-educated, affluent demographic. Dana Point and Laguna Beach attract tourists transients, and heavy traffic during the summer and holiday seasons.
Laguna Niguel is the "sane-zone"...close to everything, without being
trapped in the tourist-trap circus.

True. Tourists don't really find housing tracts all that interesting.

If you want something with a more interesting vibe and more of a cross section of society, San Clemente would be great. Its got a community feel, cafes, friendly and you d still be close to Laguna Beach. Only 20 minutes or so down PCH. Talk to a real estate company in the area or email them. They ll be able to answer most of your questions. HOA can be from $80 to $500 a month. Depends on area and building types.
The problem with San Clemente is all the gangs and the narrow, one-way streets which add to traffic congestion and accidents. Laguna Beach too suffers from horrible traffic jams during the holidays and summer months.

Points well taken, Laguna Niguel offers so much more than most suburbs - it also has a gorgeous lake that few know about: http://www.lagunaniguellake.com/ (http://http://www.lagunaniguellake.com/ - broken link)
