QUINTESSENTIAL COTTAGE - BOOK FOR SPRING/SUMMER NOW!

Laguna Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy the Laguna Beach lifestyle at its best in this lovingly restored historic cottage. One of the first 300 cottages built in Laguna in 1915. It is warm and inviting and you will find yourself immediately relaxed and ready to enjoy everything Laguna Beach has to offer.

The cottage couldn't be more convenient to restaurants, shopping, art galleries and night life venues. It is all here and all within a few blocks. Should you decide to venture further, leave your car here and catch the free Trolley to town...arriving every 15 minutes a block away. (summer months only-see schedule) Downtown is less than a mile and totally walkable.

In the morning enjoy your breakfast in the sunny back yard garden listening to the local birds. In the afternoon enjoy the front porch in rocking chairs while sipping your favorite beverage while the sun sets, listening to your favorite music. Life doesn't get much better than this.

Our Cottage has three bedrooms (king, queen and double bed)and two full service baths with an additional outside shower (to speed things up a bit).

This is our personal beach house, not a 'beach rental' property so there are many personal touches you will feel while here. It is a cozy home and the perfect place to get away from it all for a short time.

Keywords: Historic Cottage lovingly restored - comfortable, cheery and inviting

My husband and I have five children and two grandchildren. This is where we can all come together. We love to go to the beach and stay for hours catching up on our reading. We also love music and it is always on at home. Walking to town to the Saturday farmer's market or to dine or shop is always such a treat.

Our kitchen and bathrooms were lovingly restored/updated in 2008 by my husband and myself who are home builders.

Cheryl Cunningham purchased this cottage in 2003

We purchased this home in 2003 after seeing it once and making an offer that afternoon. It was warm and inviting and we knew right away it was for us. We consider ourselves blessed to have found the perfect mix of quiet local streets yet totally accessible to great restaurants, galleries and shopping. Most important, we wanted a home close to the beach as we go frequently. This home has it all.

We love our front porch for 'people watching' and sunset skies. Our back yard is delightful for breakfast; hearing local birds and enjoying the quiet sunshine. Visit our birdhouse collection or just kickback with a good book.

our family of six stayed at this beautiful home near the beach for spring break. Our three sons loved their rooms, our dog enjoyed exploring the back and side yard and my husband and I loved the entire house. Such a laid back town and literally hidden behind mountains. Cheryl was very kind and comfortable to talk with. Bob was our home tour guide and he was very welcoming and smiley as well. I loved walking out dog on the beach and the locals were all so considerate and kind. I'd recommend the near by pizza place..real good! We'll be back again for sure! Thanks Cheryl!

The Cottage was everything we could have asked for and Cheryl was extremely helpful with the process. The close proximity to the beautiful beach and everything that Laguna has to offer made our stay very special. We will absolutely return and can't wait!

Magical holiday stay in perfect Laguna Beach cottage!

I spent Christmas 2013 with my family at this beautiful Laguna Beach cottage just 1 1/2 blocks from the beach. The verdict was unanimous - one of our best Christmases yet due in large part to this lovely home and its perfect location in the gorgeous Laguna Beach area. Everyone felt so at home in this cozy cottage that lacks nothing. We prepared amazing meals in the beautiful and completely outfitted kitchen (awesome gas range!), gathered at the large dining table next to the fireplace and enjoyed our holiday meals together feeling as if we were in our own home. I particularly enjoyed having my morning coffee on the front porch in one of the rocking chairs, watching the hummingbird that visited daily as well as the beautiful butterflies that frequented the pretty garden. The backyard is awesome, completely private, beautifully landscaped and includes a gas BBQ and outdoor seating. Our two small dogs were welcome and the side yard serves as an ideal dog run area to keep them secure when outside. Our dogs have their own beds that we move from room to room so they were off the furniture but still part of the family gathering. Our hosts were very receptive to us bringing our well-behaved dogs and we truly appreciated that accommodation.

This home is beautifully decorated, incredibly comfortable with a perfect layout that is cozy yet affords privacy via three bedrooms and two baths. The side yard with outdoor shower was perfect for rinsing off sandy feet after sunset walks along the beach each evening. We enjoyed ideal weather (75 degrees at Xmas??? Only in So Cal!) but cooler evenings invited a fire in the fireplace which kept us toasty warm and added to the atmosphere.

We look forward to returning soon and highly recommend this home for visits to the Laguna Beach area. Close to paddle boarding, surfing and ideal for just relaxing and enjoying all that the nearby village has to offer.

A perfect Christmas in a perfect place. Thanks to our hosts for making their amazing home available to us for a great family Christmas gathering!

Perfect Laguna Vacation getaway Cottage!

My husband, parents, bulldogs and I came here for my 40th birthday. We frequent day trips to Laguna a lot and thought it would be great to stay a few days. This was the perfect home! Location was amazing! Home appeared to have been restored and decorated by professionals. Loved waking up every morning to enjoy coffee on the porch w comfy adorable rocking chairs. Loved afternoons in the pristine backyard, w cheese, wine and crackers! So pretty and so picture perfect. Dinners w the fireplace on were great. We walked to dinners out, drinking spots and shops each day. We enjoyed short walks to the beach and around the neighborhood.

The kitchen was well equipped and beautiful. The rooms had comfortable beds and beautiful bathrooms. Living room furniture was comfortable, the decor was picture perfect. The entire perimeter of the house was in tip top shape and well groomed. It was great having laundry facilities too! It felt like home.

The owners were great and even left a bottle of sparkling wine for my birthday! Thank you! They truly make you feel like extended family when you stay, opening their personal home up to you. I can't say enough great things about this beach home. We were so relaxed, and so excited about each day it was sad to have to leave.

Such an adorable cottage and so happy to have chosen to stay here. Would stay here again without a doubt. You won't be disappointed.

Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Nicole et.al.,

What a fantastic review! Your experience is just what Dennis and I hope all of our guests experience. So glad you found the house comfortable and that you enjoyed our "Hip District" (historic and interesting places).

I do hope you will have an opportunity to return at some future date. Glad we could be a part of your special birthday weekend.

Best, Cheryl

Great Beach Cottage Rental

I've stayed in many VRBO, but this home by far was the best. When they say it comes with everything you will need, it really does, right down to chilled glasses in the freezer. I had to attend my nephews wedding and we had five adults and one 6 month old staying in this home. It was comfortable, updated, and walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars and most importantly the beach. What a great stay!

Our house is 1-1/2 blocks from the Surf & Sand beach. We are within walking distance to Blue Bird Park where you can enjoy free summer outdoor concerts or your children can play on their amazing playset. Our beautiful beach is a sandy beach (not rocky) with lifeguards on duty during the summer months. Stroll along the beach or bring a beach chair down and watch the sunset. It is all yours to enjoy and appreciate.

The new sport of Paddleboarding is in full swing in Laguna Beach and lessons/equipment can be easily found.

We are in the center of 'The Hip District' (Historical and Interesting Places) contains over 40 shops, galleries, and restaurants to satisfy all shoppers. The downtown Village is less than a mile - certainly walkable or take the free shuttle during summer months. Shuttle and Bus stop is 1/2 block from the house.
