  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 2 wonderful weeks here! The location is fantastic. Literally steps away from the beach and constant, beautiful ocean views inside and out! Not only is the beach close, but everything Laguna has to offer is within walking distance. Having a garage for parking is a serious plus too. The outside bbq/fire pit area is terrific. We enjoyed many meals, fires and cocktails out there. The owner was very accommodating as well. The only cons (and I'm not sure they are really cons) is while the location is great, it is directly adjacent to a busy cul de sac where there is a steady stream of people going by and delivery trucks for the nearby restaurants. We weren't there in peak season, so I could see that it would be much busier in the summer (but at least it's not a through street). And while everything is very clean and comfortable in the unit, the appliances have some miles on them. But overall, it's a good choice.

Amazing experience in a stunning cottage with stunning ocean views

  • 5 of 5

First of all, let me say, we were so happy that we were able to find this vacation home. There were a total of 3 rentals in the premises. But this one with the private patio with a bar set up looking at the ocean was amazing. We spent a whole week here, wish it was longer. It was perfect for our family of 4. Booking process was easy and the customer service was very good. Every night we cooked our dinner and sat out in the patio deck and ate dinner watching the kids playing down by the shore. This unit is very upscale and kept up very well. The house is well equipped and even has a washer/dryer inside the house. The restaurants, coffee places and break fast places in walking distance was a bonus. We walked downtown quiet a bit. Beautiful evenings spent walking along the sand to the main drag. Whoever designed these rentals is a good designer. We kept the windows open at night time for the outside breeze and the sound of the ocean. We miss this, but will be back in the future.

Great Property for a small family - Can't beat the view

  • 4 of 5

We had one of our favorite vacations here. We are frequent renters and pretty picky, so 4 star rating is pretty good in our book. The view is out of this world. The pictures don't do it justice. The patio/fire pit was one of our favorite things about the property. Evenings with Smores and wine - can't beat it!

It is VERY small, so I would not recommend this for more than 4 people. The bathroom is TINY, and the rooms are also very small. But the view and location make up for that!

I think they need to get some new towels b/c the current towels have quite a bit of miles.

The property manager was incredible and even brought us dish towels one night b/c I said we didn't have any. I didn't even ask her to bring them. I was just letting her know that they needed some. Amazing service!

The other thing you should know is that this property is a "tri-property" with two other homes in the same common yard. I say that you should know that because we had some VERY noisy neighbors that partied until 4am right outside our window on one of the nights. We didn't complain about it and they didn't do it again, but you're kind of going in not knowing how your neighbors will be. But that's not really something you can control. I'm sure if we had said something to the property manager, she would have addressed it.

Another thing that I liked is that they had darkened curtain panels in the bedrooms. This is often a complaint when I rent properties b/c without them, my kids wake up at 5am.

We had many people walk down our street and see us sitting on our patio and ask "how did you get this place"?... What an amazing location! Made us feel blessed to be there :)

Anyway, we loved it and we may rent it again in the future.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this unit and were blown away by the location, the views, the amenities, and the customer service. It was so relaxing to hear the ocean constantly and run up and down to the beach at will. It was perfect for our family with lots of places to sleep, a full kitchen, and beach access. We will definitely stay at this property again. It is right in the heart of Laguna - close to cute shops and restaurants. But we enjoyed using the grill on the balcony that overlooks the ocean and relaxing by the outdoor firepit. Denise was very organized and friendly. She checked in to make sure we were enjoying our stay. It was a fantastic experience.
