Lucky to Find the Mermaid Cottage

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.
