NORTH LAGUNA - CHARMING ONE BDRM BEACH COTTAGE - STEPS TO THE PACIFIC

Laguna Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Sweeping close-in ocean views from this romantic, restored 1920's Beach Cottage on prestigious Cliff Dr, doors from Heisler Park, in North Laguna Beach. Located just south of the historic Crystal Cove cottages and the prestigious Pelican Hill golf and resort. Amazing panoramic, close-in ocean views and steps to three sandy cove beaches.

There is a queen bdrm and two twin trundle-style beds in the living room, sleeping four. This cottage is not suitable for four adults, but rather for a single, couple or family with 1-2 minors under 16. (Our two bdrm cottage is VRBO 310136).

This one bdrm cottage is approximately 700 square feet, in impeccable condition and feels like Martha Stewart meets Pottery Barn in the Tropics. Three stunning sandy beach coves 50-150 yards away, a comfortable 3-5 minute walk.

New granite kitchen, high white wood tressle beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, 40' flat screen TV with mulitude of cable channels, deck with gas BBQ and table/chairs overlooking the Pacific. Lower brick garden patio for sunning. Perfect for relaxation.

Not suitable for partying groups. Do not be concerned that we back up to Coast Hwy. It is not a 'Highway' but rather a two lane road in each direction with stop lights every couple of blocks. There is a garden courtyard between the street and the cottage. The kitchen is in the back overlooking the gardens.

Please CHECK OUR up to date CALENDAR and RATES before contacting owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We spent a lot of time looking around for accommodations in Laguna that wouldn't make us feel like we were getting ripped off. We wanted an ocean view and wanted to be in walking distance to the beach and to town. After several days of internet searches looking into hotels etc., I found the posting for this little cottage. We booked it immediately! The photos are cute but I must say that it was even cuter in person! We booked the one bedroom cottage. First off, it was spotlessly clean - very important for us! Next, it was absolutely adorable, shabby chic done right. The bed was super comfortable and the neighborhood super quiet! The kitchen by the way was shockingly well stocked for cooking, juicing, even baking, blending, whatever you want to do, you could do it in this kitchen! There was even a Champagne bucket for us to chill the Champagne we brought! We loved it here, it was cozy, relaxing, super clean, tastefully decorated and it lived up to everything I hoped it would be. Dealing with Gerri and Art was easy and I am happy to say this is the best place to stay in Laguna! Loved it, it was hard to leave! I don't give 5 stars easily and this rating was super easy to give, I would give it 6 stars if i could! And it was romantic too! One other thing, when we arrived music (jazz) had been turned on for us and was playing when we walked in, nice touch!

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 Southern California architecture of the 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. Along with our four adult children, two grandsons and our friends, we have enjoyed our many days at our beach house and feel very fortunate to have such a special vacation home. For our many guests, new and returning, we are happy to provide a special vacation home away from home.

Gerri purchased this cottage in 1988

We were fortunate to find a fantastic coastal vacation home location on the renowned California Riviera. We have specactular 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, the coastline of Italy, Sicily, Gibraltar, French Riviera, So American Atlantic and north Africa, as well as up and down the California Coast, Oregon Coast, East Coast and Mexican Riviera. 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.

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 have just a short walk home!

Our cottages are fantastic and convenient 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 expenseive real estate in the world. Hotel rooms in nearby resorts range from $500-1000+ per nite, and are one room. Our cottages are half those prices and are 3-4 rooms each, like 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.

LOVE LAGUNA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two great nights at this cottage in Laguna. We loved Laguna and this place was a great part of it.
Highlights:
Great view
Close to the beach
Nice places to walk (locals out every day)
Away from the main town - free bus available

What more could you ask for? This place is very well done; new appliances, comfortable furniture, deck for lounging/grilling and a very short walk to the beach.

COUNTING DOWN TILL MY NEXT VISIT!

  • 5 of 5
We are repeat guests who wait all year to return to this adorable cottage, our home away from home. This is truly a well thought out vacation rental. The kitchen is big enough to cook a meal in if you for some reason want to forgo the awesome restaurants to be found within a five mile radius. You'll spend all sorts of time on the deck, watching dolphins, seals, and even whales frolick in the kelp beds offshore. The location is great: half mile walk along beautiful Heisler Park down to Main Beach, and just at the point where PARKING IS FREE. The absolute best thing is waking up to see the ocean from your bed! All you need to bring is your bathing suit and suntan lotion!

We loved our stay at the Laguna Beach Charmers. The photos really don't show how completely adorable this property is. We were so impressed, thoughtful details, it was so relaxing. Lots of room for our family of three.

LAGUNA BEACH 1 BR COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the cottage in mid June. Ever since returning home, we have been thinking back to what a great vacation we had in Laguna Beach. The cottage is perfect, very clean, comfortable, and just as described. The photos are accurate – and it is even more charming in person. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, away from the tourist crowds, but close enough to walk to town for dinner and browsing the shops. The walk through Heisler Park is beautiful with beach and ocean views the entire way.
We loved relaxing on the cottage deck and gazing out to the ocean. It is a very short walk to beautiful cove beaches. The cottage has all the beach gear you could possibly want. At night, with the windows open, you can smell the sea air and hear the waves crashing ashore. We slept so well there – the bed is very comfortable.
We found a few “favorite” restaurants in town, that we highly recommend. For great food, friendly people, and lively bar: House of Big Fish & Ice Cold Beer and Nick’s. Also, the Lumberyard is a great place for a quiet, romantic dinner.
Gerri is easy to work with and the reservation process through arrival to the cottage went smoothly. I would recommend it to couples who want to relax, unwind, and enjoy the outdoors.
We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible!

BEST 4TH OF JULY IN YEARS!

  • 5 of 5
As a going away to college celebration my husband and I took my daughter to Laguna for a long holiday weekend. We had the perfect place - nice and high on the hill so we could see the ocean, we could people watch from our balcony, and best of all - the fireworks! They were just around the bend from the rental unit and from our balcony we had a prefect view in a cozy and intimate setting. It was one of the best we have had! We love Laguna and have rented the smaller unit in this complex in the past. Owner is extremely accommodating and gracious. Very easy to work with and everything is in order when you arrive. The unit was clean and everything was just the way you would want it. We will be back!!!

Owner's Response: We were so glad you enjoyed the Fourth of July! We offered this one-time chance as we do not rent it normally over the Fourth of July weekend. However, even without the fireworks works, our cottages and beach-close location are amazing. Thank you for taking the time to let our future guests know your experience. Hope to see you back soon.
