Whether you are a family looking to vacation or a couple looking for a place to relax and enjoy the sunset and the beach, the Mermaid Cottage is the perfect place for you. Just steps from the sands of popular Victoria Beach, and one of the few rentals on the ocean side of Pacific Coast Highway, this charming home is in the heart of Laguna Beach, with breathtaking views of the ocean and the sunset. During the summer, there is a free trolley stop near the house to downtown and other parts of Laguna.
There are 2 bedrooms, one with twin beds and a king in the master, plus a loft with a queen size bed - comfortably sleeps 6. There are 2 full bathrooms, a fireplace, washer and dryer and a enclosed garage. The kitchen is complete with all cooking amenities, including a dishwasher and microwave - there is also an outside gas BBQ. The backyard has ocean views and is a perfect spot for outdoor dining and relaxing, as is the front balcony which has sweeping ocean views.
The living area is open, spacious and airy wiith original hardwood floors. There are 2 flat screen TV's with cable, movie channels, 2 Blu-Ray DVD players and Netflix. There are beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and a large cooler for your short walk to the sand.
This original beach cottage is the perfect family getaway and the only home rental a short walk to the beach.
We had a wonderful time in Laguna. We were truly lucky to find the Mermaid Cottage since we started our search so late. The house was perfect in so many ways.
From the front deck to the back patio, from the living room to the kitchen, one could enjoy the cool breeze coming off the Pacific anywhere in the house. The house is in a great location- a short walk to the picturesque Victoria Beach, a short drive to Laguna, Dana Point and other surf beaches and close enough to town to be able to take advantage of shopping and dining but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of town. You can't beat the master shower either!
The house was well appointed with the basic needs. The kitchen was equipped with all cooking needs- pots and pans, grill, etc. Beach chairs, towels, coolers were all there. Upon arrival, there were no worries other than stocking the house with food.
We did take advantage of a couple of your recommendations for restaurants- the roof top bar for drinks was amazing (at the Hotel downtown) and the Montage had remarkable views. The surf shop took care of all of our needs and made for a care free surfing experience.
Our experience renting homes out here on the East Coast is different in regard to checking in. I was not sure, at first, how this would all work- not actually seeing a rental agent upon check in. Working with you was very easy and check in/check out was very easy- almost too easy!
We do not get to the West Coast so much but we would definitely go back to Laguna and the Mermaid Cottage if we go west again. Thanks for doing what you could to make our experience so enjoyable.
My family has spent the last two spring breaks at the mermaid cottage! We are from Denver and have 4 girls! I highly recommend the mermaid cottage for large families , all six of us were very comfortable and felt right at home! The mermaid cottage had everything we needed to make our vacation enjoyable! Victoria Beach is a short walk away and is breath taking! We walked into Laguna, went whale watching, flew kites, took surfing lessons and rented paddle boards! The owners of the Mermaid cottage are wonderful to rent from and you can tell they take great pride in their rental property! Hope to return next year!
We rented Mermaid Cottage for 5 nights over Christmas 2014. The house was perfectly comfortable for me, my husband and 4 children (27, 20, 19, 16). The kids bunked in the downstairs bedroom and loft. The owner was very prompt in communicating with me before, during and after our trip. The home is in a quiet neighborhood with sweeping ocean views. It is a short walk to a beautiful ocean beach. We took most of our meals in. The kitchen is well equipped with cookware, utensils, pantry staples and a natural gas grill. A grocery store is just around the corner. We took a day trips to both L.A. and San Diego, about 1-1/2 hour drive each. As much fun as we had sightseeing, our favorite part of each day was wine and cheese on the front balcony at sunset! Our trip was fantastic and we hope to revisit Mermaid Cottage again.
Whether you are looking to relax or seeking adventure, Laguna Beach and Mermaid Cottage are the place for you. Our family of 5 (three sons) all loved the Mermaid Cottage. The house itself has so much charm from top to bottom, inside and out. If you want to eat in and grill on the back patio or eat out at one of the many great restaurants in Laguna, you are covered. The views of the ocean are lovely and the house has such a beachy and peaceful feel. Nearby Victoria Beach (just a walk down the street) is stunning and great for boogie boarding and taking amazing pictures. Main beach in Laguna and the shopping area is great for families. There are some great local hiking trails and the nearby Pacific Marine Mammal Center was fun for the kids (this is where all of the Elephant Seals and Sea Lions who are rescued in OC are taken). Dennis was very helpful and hospitable. I highly recommend Mermaid Cottage and wish we were still there!
My Wife, two children, mother and I found the "MERMAID COTTAGE" on this website. We decided after reading the reviews and looking at the photos very closely to select this home for our stay in Laguna Beach. Best decision we made! The home was everything we could of ever imagined for our family vacation. We immediately felt at home. The house was STOCKED with the essentials like Laundry Detergent, paper towels, etc. The garage was set up with everything needed to take to the most amazing beach just a short walk down Victoria Drive. The backyard was cozy and functional but I found myself spending most of the time on the front porch. The view was great and the breeze was refreshing. We are already planning our annual vacation to Laguna Beach and would definitely stay here again. Just hope it's available!!!
We came from Argentina to visit our son, and have spent a wonderfull week at the mermaid cottage. It was exactly what we were looking for. Fully equipped, very well decorated and maintained, everything we needed was at hand. The location can't be better, 150 meters from the most beautiful beach of Laguna, very peaceful neighborhood, marvelous ocean views from living room and terrace, with amazing sunsets. We will keep these lifelasting memories at the heart of our family. Thank you Walsh family!
This fully equipped, charming home had everything we needed from location to cooking. The beds were comfortable, the towels and sheets plush and wonderful. Its beachy, tasteful decor is calming and welcoming. The street is quiet and the residents were friendly. We would definitely stay here again. Mr. Walsh was quick to reply to emails and was very helpful. We even had a handwritten note attached to a gift from Mrs. Walsh welcoming us. Everything was great!
