Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
Romanticly restored 1920's Beach Cottage Charmer on prestigious Cliff Dr just steps north of Heisler Park in North Laguna Beach, and just S. of the historic Crystal Cove cottages and the prestigious Pelican Hill golf and resort. Sweeping close-in ocean views and steps to three cove sandy beaches.
Approximately 900 square feet, impeccable condition. Feels like Martha Stewart meets Pottery Barn in the Tropics. Awesome ocean views. Three stunning beach coves 50-150 yards away, 3-5 minute walk. Romantic queen, private master bedroom with sweeping ocean views and opening to ocean view deck. 2nd bedroom offers a twin bed and a double bed and ocean views.

Art and Gerri have lovingly restored these 1920s era beach cottages, both our one bdrm cottage and our two bdrm cottage. They are always a work in progress with ongoing new updates and overall maintenance. We love to restore older homes and have done so in our home town of Glendale, CA, as an avocation as well as a business. It is our mission to preserve the architecture of Southern California past. Gerri is a real estate broker with her own boutique Glendale real estate company and Art is our property manager and manages investments. Art has worn many hats as he is retired from the LAPD and also a retired General Contractor. With our four adult children, two grandsons and our friends, we have enjoyed many days and evenings at our beach house and feel very fortunate to have such a special vacation home. We are happy to provide our new guests and well as our many retuning guests a special vacation home away from home.
Gerri purchased this apartment in 1988
Why Gerri chose Laguna Beach
We were fortunate to find a fantastic coastal vacation home location on the renowned California Riviera. We have spectacular ocean views combined with adjacent beach access as well as close walking proximity to the charming Laguna Village. We have traveled to many coastal areas throughout the world including southern Spain, along the coasts of Italy, Sicily, Gibraltar, French Riviera, South American Atlantic, and north Africa, as well as up and down the California Coast, Oregon Coast, East Coast and Mexican Riviera and coasts. Whenever we are home here in our vacation spot of Laguna Beach, we marvel how this spot is one of the most spectacular we have seen in the world, if not THE MOST SPECTACULAR place on earth. Yet, Laguna Beach remains a small beach town...but with sophisticated restaurants and amenities. One can relax in quiet serenity or find stimulating activity and entertainment all minutes away.
What makes this apartment unique
Our cottages offer awesome sweeping close-in ocean views as well as a premier location surrounded by private upscale Laguna Beach coastal residences. We are a walk-past 10 homes to three spectacular sandy cove beaches, as well as a seven block walk to the charming Laguna Village. A short 8-door stroll brings one to Heisler Park, which provides awesome vistas along pathways threading above the beaches of the Pacific below. Heisler Park takes you to Las Brisas restaurant patio overlooking the Pacific...enjoy yummy chips and appetizers, and, if you so desire, a myriad of enticing margaritas. And then you can walk home! Our cottates are fantastic and convenient with a location in a serene ocean view setting. Located a 2-7 min drive to Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Coast, Newport Beach and Pelican Hill, one can experience many delights of being surrounded by some of the most expensive real estate in the world. Hotel rooms in nearby resorts range from $500-1000+ per night, and are one room. Our cottages are half those prices and are 3-4 rooms each, a small house. Combined with nice furnishings appropriate to the cottage style, rather than furnished with cast offs and garage sale pick ups common to many vacation rentals, as well as providing an alternate to dining out each meal by providing upscale granite kitchens and al fresco dining areas, our 1920s built Laguna Beach Charmers offers a fun and exciting experience that prompts many return visits by our guests. We are confident once you stay with us you will be back again and again.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We came to Laguna immediately after the 12/22/10 mudslide. Before we even asked about the condition of the unit, the owners had emailed their assurances about the home and its condition. It turned out that the roof had a few minor drips (more of a problem for the owner than for us renters) but the owners offered a price discount after we had already moved in. Classy move... classy place... The well-equipped and clean kitchen was stocked with the kind of basics you hate to buy on a vacation, and the bedrooms were comfortable with nice linens. The otuside steps are a little slippery, and the bathroom doesn't have much storage space, but if those are my complaints - who cares?
