One of a kind Home with Beautiful Views - 18315



Southern California is more than just a lifestyle, it is a vibe, a connection, a mood and most of all a glorious undertaking in enjoying all life has to offer in a great climate bounded by sun, surf and sand. We humbly submit that if you rent this home, you will agree that from the desert to the sea throughout the entire state there is, quite simply, no finer home to experience the dream of southern California. Buckle up folks, you are about to enter the Water Tower Experience.

The name says it all – THE WATER TOWER - for the those unfamiliar with perhaps the most famous beach-front landmark in all of California, let’s start with a little history. Located in one of Americas tallest ground to ceiling residential structures and serviced by a commercial elevator that whisks you upwards of close to one hundred feet in the sky; this almost 3,000 square foot home was, in fact, southern California's first man-made tourist attraction.

As you enter you will see the fine artwork on the doors and plaque detailing some of the history of this home which was built to service the railroads in the last half of the 1800’s as the steam engines required a tremendous amount of water to power the locomotives. The Tower could hold up to 75,000 gallons of water which weighed over 37 tons so don’t worry about whether or not the she is strong enough to support your family. From vintage tools and a water fall to the Burlaps and Barrels bathroom you will feel the history of the Water Tower as soon as you cross the threshold into a home experience like non-other. You will also be introduced to the tower mascot – Mr. Wally Tower. As your stay unfolds, enjoy finding the hidden “Wally’s” around the home. There are several intriguing finds on this floor including a bedroom with a “secret” room located behind a bookshelf (where some folks believe the ghost of Wally resides). After taking in the entry level, get in the elevator and start your stay.

On the second floor you will be thrilled to find a wonderful lounge, dining area and fully stocked kitchen with all new state of the art appliances and cookware. The view is nothing short of stunning as walls are in fact mostly windows revealing the entire Pacific Ocean. Slide open the doors and walk around the entire tower or simply sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the beach and Catalina. This is the lowest indoor floor of the Water Tower, yet you are still 60 feet in the air with a majestic view. Throughout the Tower you will find a number of treats and architectural gems including magnificent stained glass windows and custom wood-work. This floor is no exception. Look up at the ceiling or simply give a listen for the whistle of the trains circling around the ceiling. These trains are replicas of those serviced by the Water Tower over a century ago. The lounge has not only amazing scenery, but we believe some of the most comfortable chairs you will ever have the pleasure of sitting in as you enjoy the view and your stay. This floor also hosts a bedroom with bunk beds dedicated and decorated in recognition of a little know part of California history – Pirates. That’s right, Pirates. Specifically, Hippolyte Bouchard who after raiding Monterey, plundered Mission San Juan Capistrano while cruising up and down the coastline.

Now it is time to journey to the top floor or Rotunda Room of the Water Tower. This room which stands over 80 feet above sea level offers a 360-degree view of all of southern California. From the Hollywood sign to San Clemente Island for as far as the eyes can see you will have an unobstructed view. If for some reason that is not enough for you, we have numerous magnifying devices including a custom-made viewfinder so if you are curious about what the crew of a passing sailboat looks like, just zoom in and take a gander. The room itself is designed to entertain and be enjoyed by up to 20 people. There are four large screen curved HD televisions so you can watch all the games. Or if you simply want to sit on the custom leather chairs or new couch and enjoy the view then don’t forget to take in the 100 gallon fish tank or be certain to look up at the stain glass ceiling. As you look up you will see propellers. Those too are part of the history of the tower and its unique role as a coastal landmark during World War II. This floor includes a custom bar, video station with over 600 different games and a lifetime of breathtaking views.
