About Marija Chandler

Hi, I am Marija Chandler, my passion is working as a Vacation Rental Booking Representative and providing a great vacation rental experience.

My number one goal and source of satisfaction is to provide a clean and safe place to call home when you are vacationing.

I strive for the best personal service for travelers in vacation rental homes.

If I cannot accommodate you at this property, I would like to hear from you anyway!

There are other properties in Laguna Beach to choose from along with Encinitas, Oceanside, Kauai or Hawaii! Many are here on VRBO, so send me an email to find out what is available for your next vacation!

Marija Chandler purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Marija Chandler chose Orange County

The house is perfect as a vacation rental as it is walking distance to many places worth seeing. Crescent Bay beach is a great body surfing spot. Shaw's cove is a favorite place for diving. I like restaurants and art galleries being close by. There is a grocery store a few blocks away plus a nice all American food shop just up the street. One can also walk to Heisler Park and have a perfect setting for a barbecue. More places to eat like Pizza! I also like John Wayne Airport (SNA) being close by.

What makes this cottage unique

We're happy Guests can visit enjoy the surround sound, the lighting, the ambiance of the home. The house has beautiful fixtures and all new modern appliances, the colors are lite and calming. The furniture in the living area is a dark chocolate brown which creates a nice contrast. The 10 foot granite bar sets the mood to have a good time! The patio is enclosed which creates privacy. The house has triple paned windows, sound board in the walls to prevent outside sounds from entering. The lighting is beautiful within the home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to drop a quick note of thanks. We really enjoyed staying at the house. It is beautiful and a great launching point to enjoy Lagnua. We went paddle boarding on Saturday

, enjoyed the walk along the cliffs over the beach, went for a hike up the ridge in Crystal Cove and had a family dinner my wife cooked in the house. Again, a great venue for games Saturday night. Needless to say, all slept well. We are a pretty active family.

Sunday we went to mass at St. Catherines which is just beautiful and then headed for home.

We really loved the weekend and will likely be back.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the Laguna Beach area. The weather was perfect, just opened the windows and had a wonderful breeze. Our walks into town along the beach paths were just beautiful. We visited art galleries and great restaurants in Laguna, Newport, San Juan Capistrano and Dana Point. There were 6 of us in the house, 3 in the main house and 3 in the back cottage. The cottage allowed for privacy and the main house was a wonderful space to gather for meals and conversation. Marija responded immediately to all our questions, her son came to address our minor issues with a smile, they were a pleasure to work with. The house was warm and comfortable and in a great location.

Great way to explore Laguna Beach and Orange County

  • 5 of 5

Main house so well done and equipped it feels like home. Walk to beach and walk downtown including Whole Foods to stock up. On site parking at back gate great for getting our dogs in and out. Hop on PCH to head up or down the coast. Toll roads just to the east (241, 133) made for easy access to the rest of OC when we wanted to drive around. Great place and way to explore the area.

Absolutely perfect! Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

Marija, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! It could not have been more perfect. My family loved the large open space in the main house and we really enjoyed cooking together in the large well-equipped kitchen. The appliances were top notch and it was so great being able to pick up fresh ingredients at the grocery store a few blocks away and spend good quality time in the kitchen and dining area every morning and evening. The house, beds and furniture were very comfortable and clean. The house is so bright and airy, it felt almost like being outside all day with the blinds wide open. We weren't expecting to have an ocean view, so that was a pleasant surprise! The yard was the perfect size to let our dogs romp around and the location was perfect for daily walks to the beach with them. We are so grateful for your generosity and can't wait to visit again!

Laguna Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This Casa Blanca in Laguna is a real gem. It was a lovely stay at the house which is a short walk from the beach in North Laguna. Get there early so you can have some private beach time in the Pacific. The house has character and charm for Laguna living and was great for the kids. It has great air and space for plenty of guests. It was the second time we stayed at the house and we so appreciated the host Marija's professional communications and thoroughness. I highly recommend a stay at this property.

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a small group of art friends to gather, create and explore Laguna Beach. We loved the location which was just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown but easily accessible (free trolley!) Great places to eat were just a short drive away. The two dedicated parking stalls made it easy to come and go (street parking was also readily available). The house had a wonderful and welcoming feel to it--some days, we chose to just stay in! The layout of the property provided us with lots of room to hang out together. We made good use of the patio, the living room and often times, the kitchen! The property also allowed each of us our own private space to retreat to. It was a bit warm during the days we were there. To cool down the living room, we opened the front door to let the breeze in. When the door is open, however, the noise from the street can get quite loud. The portable A/C units in the bedrooms were very much appreciated. Best of all, Marija was great to work with. She was responsive, accommodating and very professional!

Charming, comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My (adult) daughter stayed here with a large group of friends (9). Her comments: "The owner was super helpful and responded by phone immediately when we needed some quick assistance with the washing machine. The local beach is beautiful and surprisingly private. Very close to grocery/drug stores so very convenient. House was very clean and perfect for such a large group." I will add that it was nice to have two parking places for their two cars. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes, etc. I made the initial contact with the owner, Marija, and found her very easy to work with and responsive. A great experience!
