Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing me to make use of your Beach Cottage this past weekend. The weather was spectacular, and we enjoyed being able to spend Sunday in the sun rather than rushing back to "reality".

I left a key in your lockbox, and here is the one you mailed to me.

Thanks again,

C. B.

Great Rental

  • 4 of 5
Great rental property and location. Unfortunately, we were informed that this rental is up for sale and probably won't be available much longer due to too many headaches for the owner. Really enjoyed our stay here and wish it was longer. Only reason I took a star off is that we were promised certain check-in and check-out times originally and they were changed on us after we had already sent in the deposit

Owner's Response: The Laguna Cottage is not for Sale. It is priceless, or $1.8 million, but it is our home. It is kept "Perfect" for renters.
Renters are told that if no one else rents, entry/ exit could change..however we are 99% booked all summer, and autumn weekends. Any renter can pay for the day ahead, and day after, arrive at 5:3o a.m if paid a full day ahead, or leave late, paying for another full day.
We had a before renter and following renter: 5 dogs, 9 people, 3 cars a van and 4 maids...Just too many people at once, so
Checkout is firm 11 am, arrival 3:30 pm
Like Hotels (Cheap Laguna motels are $389 plus tax and parking fees now, not $139 anymore).

Pets will be charged $35-75 a night for one or multiple., just like hotels. A damage deposit will be added soon:
This summer we had:
Window broken by a thrown croquet ball witnessed by neighbor.
Garbage disposal unplugged and clogged with a cup of bacon grease, and seaweed like veggie matter.
2 broken screen doors, twice.
Broken ping pong table.
odd smelling items down the kitchen disposal.
indoor furniture moved outdoors.
broken lamps, burned out light bulbs not reported or changed,
etc.
We love our home, but difficult , messy renters, create 3 hours of extra work for me to find keys hidden under toilet paper, missing remotes, keys missing from the lockbox, or empty lockbox, hangers thrown on floors, clothes and toys left and stuffed in bottom drawers.

No changes in our amenities, our no surprise fees, out turn-key supplies in the cottage. Bring bathing suits, one change of clothes, perishables foods, BBQ meats, and we supply the rest; down to toothbrushes and toothpaste!

AWESOME place!!

  • 5 of 5
5 friends and my husband and I stayed at the cottage for 4 nights and we enjoyed it so much, we booked an additional night at the last minute! It's within walking distance to BOTH downtown Laguna & the beach, PERFECT location!! House has everything you need including a patio, grill, outdoor shower (+ indoor shower), plenty of towels, beds, and stocked kitchen. make sure you find the "hidden" room in the back of the house ("shed" entrance)! Such a peaceful, pleasurable, perfect vaca. spot!!

Marianne rocks, she was super flexible!!!!

Perfect Laguna Beach House

  • 5 of 5
I was in Laguna for a week, and hosting friends from around the globe for my wedding. Location, Location, Location! The house is so close to the main beach, wonderful restaurants, and everything you would ever need for a wonderful vacation. Been busy all week, I couldn't have found a better place to stay as the area caters for everyone and we didn't need to all have cars. The house itself is wonderful, we were very comfortable with 8 people. 4 girls and 4 guys. The owners had clearly thought out everything we could want or need and made sure it was on hand.

Laguna Beach treasure

  • 5 of 5
Took my 3 nieces, nephew and son for a spring break getaway. This was the perfect little house. Rooms for everyone to have their space. The kitchen was well equipped for me to cook almost every meal and the home was supplied with plenty of towels, beach items and even toiletries in case we forgot anything. Owner was flexible when we had a bit of car trouble the day we were to leave. Short walk to beach, shops and restaurants. We enjoyed evenings around the fire pit/table. No view but we really didn't miss it.

The bedroom in the annex considered unfit …

  • 1 of 5
The photos, video and property overview provided by the owner do not fairly represent the standard, condition and level of occupancy that was available for our stay. We had booked on the basis that 8 - 10 adults could holiday at the Cottage and as our family group was reduced to only 6 adults, we were confident that our expectations would be met. However, after only one night the 4th bedroom was considered unfit for occupation which resulted in a member of our party being obliged to take up accommodation at a local hotel.

The 4th bedroom is a converted garage referred to as ‘the annex’ which is not accessible through the cottage and may only be entered from outside. Access is via a locked door and an area with a Jacuzzi which serves as the only ‘bathroom’ for the cottage. Within the bedroom / annex was a double sofa bed, bunk beds, a non functional washing machine which tripped the circuit breaker when connected, a dryer, a refrigerator, a microwave, old TV equipment, a desk and a wide array of discarded items and clutter. Many of the electrical items were on flying leads, multi plus and adaptors which are considered an electrical hazard and, potentially, a fire risk.

The more serious of the deficiencies were made known to the owner by email within the first day or so of our stay and not rectified. On our return to the UK we confirmed in detail both these and other deficiencies. An email of 10/20/13 from the owner agreed a refund of $1,000 on the rental by certified check(s) which, to date, we have not received.

It gives no pleasure to post such an unfavourable review but we feel it right to alert potential visitors of the more serious inadequacies that we experienced during our stay.

we had a great time

  • 5 of 5
the house is so easily accessible to everything that it made the experience exactly what we were looking for. The house is small but wasn't a problem for us at all. Everything was there that we needed and the owner was very gracious.
