Quaint, Cozy, Historic 3BR/2BA Cottage - Six Blocks from Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A unique, 80 year old Laguna writer's home, still owned by original family. The house is three bedrooms, two baths, set on a half acre of wooded hillside, six blocks from the beach, one mile south of downtown Laguna Beach, near BlueBird Canyon.

One of Laguna's early homes, built simply with pine walls and floors, the house has a good-sized living and dining room with a wonderful fireplace.

Soaring eucalyptus trees planted around the perimeter of the property in the 1920s host a variety birds and migrating monarch butterflies. The natural, spacious landscape encourages the play of children.

The beach is a short walk from the house and offers a fascinating

change of scene as tides work their way in and out.

Perfect as an artist or family retreat.

Very original and great get away

  • 5 of 5

This house is so original and has a fantastic vibe. It's so charming and cosy and you can almost feel the history of the family that build the house just walking around in the house. Everything was very clean and nice, great towels, sheets and beds.

It's not luxury, but it's one the most fantastic houses and atmospheres you can find if you are looking for a quiet, calming and soothing get away. we could see the ocean from the terrace through the beautiful old trees, which was great. The beautiful beach is in walking distance down hill which was great.

A Cozy Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My Dad & I were attending the Rose Bowl earlier this month, and we decided to stay in Laguna Beach during our time in CA. This cottage was absolutely perfect for our needs, and made for a comfortable stay. It was a quick trip for us, so we didn't have a chance to make much use of the accommodations, but everything looked great. I can vouch for the beds which are super comfortable. We would definitely stay here again and I highly recommend this cottage as a lodging solution in Laguna Beach.

PERFECT--Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Laguna Beach to attend a friend's wedding and the cottage checked off every item on the list. It was only a few blocks from the wedding reception, close to the beach, ocean views off the deck and yet the cottage was secluded in the trees. Every room was unique and comfortable. Both the fireplace and duvet were appreciated as I had forgotten about cool nights living in the low desert. I only wish I could have stayed longer--it's the perfect place to relax. The owner couldn't have been more accommodating. The cottage is a tranquil gem. Thanks, Annette, for sharing "her."

Greaet little cottage in wonderful location.

Loved having a wood burning fireplace and deck to watch the sunset, and walk into town for dinner. I hope to come back.

Family Wedding in Laguna

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in this great cottage! Our son was married in Laguna and being from the east coast we wanted a place for us and our daughter with her family. The house worked great! Lots of relatives gathered on the property - the only draw back was the apartment sized stove but having a propane and charcoal grill available we were able to pull meals off. Everyone who visited was impressed with the place and the location was just beautiful....watching the sunset from the deck with our evening meal.
