Best vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a WONDERFUL week at this condo. The condo location is ideal- a very short walk to the pristene private beach. The master bedroom has a magnificent view of the ocean as well as the other two floors. The condo is immaculate and furnished to make it feel very cozy & comfortable. The nautical decor is lovely. LOVED the Pageant of the Masters (a must see). Also great restaurants (especially Las Brisas). The use of the free shuittle was great also.

I have highly recommended this property to all my friends & family.

The feel of a small quaint area was a real treat coming from Phoenix az. Would most definitely return. Anna

Just Steps to the Beach (and a Hump back Up)

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at this condo...great views to the ocean, nice accommodations, and the weather cooperated....ate at Mare's, Alessa's, Broadway and Lumberyard downtown, and there are a couple great restaurants across the street including Dizz's As Is and Starfish....Laguna Beach is a great community and with the Trolley system downtown is only 10 to 30 minutes at no cost...

The walk down to the beach is at a fairly good downslope that you really understand on the walk back up the hill....if I were 24 I would consider good 50 I consider it a heart attack about to happen...I do not hold the owners to blame...just my lethargic lifestyle.

Once again, great place, great community and nice semi-private beach...thank you for the superb memories.

Five Star Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Blue Lagoon for two weeks from the 31st March till the 13th of April. This was the first time to Southern California with the family and we fell in love with area. Laguna Beach is idyllic and has a lovely vibe, fantastic restaurants and tempting art galleries. From the time we started our research into accommodation in Laguna Beach we found the depth and clarity of the communication from Diane to be excellent. Upon arrival Diane had arranged some provisions, which was a pleasant surprise.

The pictures on the web of the Villa do not reflect the amount of space and we quite happily lost our two teenage kids in their Den at the base of the property while mum and Dad enjoyed a drink at Sunset from the balcony. The beach is a real gem, I would guess that even in high season the beach would never feel busy and the fact that you are literally two minutes walk back to the Villa from the beach is a real advantage. Diane could not have been a better host she was always available and had all the answers we needed. What really impressed us is that this is a real home from home and I would challenge anyone to find a utensil, stain remover or other domestic necessity that they have at home that Diane had not provided.

A perfect Easter break and a perfect Villa, thank you Diane. We whole-heartedly give you and your villa a five star review and look forward to booking with you again in the future.

Kind Regards

The Peacock Family Ireland.
