Fantastic, the best, would recommend it anytime!

  • 5 of 5

Aside the fact that this part of California is the most beautiful and cleanest city I have ever seen, I am still speechless, lets talk about the rental house. We are so happy we picked this one. We checked all the others in the area once we there and hands down this one is the best. So cozy, so cute and so tucked away. We felt like we were hobbits living in between nature. Trees and plants all around us. And every morning we had hummingbirds visiting the fountain right outside outer bedroom window. Like a fairy tale. Very clean and very spacious. Don't look anywhere else because it doesn't get any better. Also it wasn't far from so many fun things. Perfect in all aspects.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fabulous three nights/four days in Laguna Beach and everyone absolutely loved how AMAZING this house was! The owners have done a wonderful job maintaining the character of this historic home while bringing in tasteful upgrades and wonderful details. The house is deceptively large, with room to sleep 8, is very clean, well kept and appointed. When we first arrived, I confess I couldn't see the house very well from the street because of a landscaped hedge along the front. However, this turned out to be a big asset as it screened out the street from the front patio. Coming into the front yard you first notice a beautiful fountain and japanese maple then a flower covered trellis over a patio with teak dining table and chairs. Twinkle lights in the trellis creates a magical place in the evening for dinner and gathering. Stepping into the house you arrive in a wonderful living room with stone fireplace, exposed truss ceiling, douglas fir floors and beautiful stained glass accent windows. Double french doors open to the front patio and another set in the adjoining family room open out to a nice deck overlooking the rear yard. From the living room, venturing into each room was like opening a present, each had such character and appeal. Openess, fresh air and natural light are key features to enjoy about the house. The rear yard area has beautiful views out to the lush Bluebird Canyon and off to the coast. This reminded us of places in Hawaii we've been to. The large TV, wifi, and great sound system with Bose speakers were really appreciated (bring cd's) . The kitchen is large and well designed for meal prep and gathering for meals and fun. We cannot say enough about how delightful and restfull the time we spent there was and certainly hope to return again someday soon! Lastly, all the important destinations are easily walkable - beach, coffee places, restaurants, and shops. The owners are delightful people and were available for a couple of questions we had. After staying here, you will not want to leave!

Charming cottage - plenty of space, quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway in quiet neighborhood of million dollar cottages just blocks to a secluded public beach. Not spotless, but that has more to do with housekeeper than owner. Minutes from yoga, minutes to a secluded park, plenty of common area and secluded baths. Plus very responsive owner. Love this place and hope to come back next year.

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful and had everything we needed... all the way down to a pack and play and high chair! We especially liked the layout of the house because each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom, which enabled each couple to have their own private space. It was wonderful to have an outdoor and indoor eating area, and two living rooms. It came equipped with everything we needed... kitchen items and towels and sheets. The location was great too... walking distance to the water and to great restaurants and shops, but it was tucked away off the main street, which made for a quiet visit. Thank you, Carmen, for a wonderful family vacation! You were so responsive and great to deal with.

Perfect location for awesome Laguna Beach trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome girls trip! Staying at this beautiful cottage was perfect for us. There were 4 of us, this house provided us ample space with a cozy environment. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised by how nice this house was. It was perfect for us! We really liked the attention to the decor and amenities for guests. We would recomend this home to friends and families! In addition this location is very close to the beach access, shopping, and dining.

Disappointing Experience

  • 1 of 5

My family only stayed two nights of our planned and prepaid eight-night stay in this home. We left because we felt unsafe in the home. We also found the home to be unclean and not fully functional. We found dust and cobwebs, crumbs in the kitchen and a shower with no hot water. We also found non-working locks on the kitchen windows, a flimsy hook and eye lock on the family room’s backdoor, and no working / existing smoke alarms in many rooms.

We left the home after the homeowner’s assistant left the home’s keys in the front door lock while we were out for the day. The assistant came to clean the house while we were out, and she forgot to remove the keys from the front door. While nothing was stolen, there were several hours during which any person could have come to the front door, turned the key and walked into the home. We had left many valuable while out--two laptops, two ipads, two ipods, jewelry, etc., because the home owner had assured us that everything would be totally secure while the assistant “tidied up”.

We had considerable interaction with the owner before making the decision to leave and found the home owner’s responses to be insufficient and insensitive. For example, when we told her we were concerned about a lack of sufficient window and door locks, she said, “the neighborhood is safe, and when I lived there I never felt unsafe so there is nothing to worry about.”

We would like to note that the owner was not candid about having received past complaints similar to ours. She repeatedly said, “I have never had a complaint about cleanliness or safety, so I am at a loss.” There are two VRBO reviews that contradict this: “Not very good on your own," and "A little disappointed," which is about the owner’s other property.

When we spoke with the owner to let her know we were leaving the property, she said that she would refund us for half the days of our planned and prepaid stay if we gave her a receipt for our days in a hotel. We emailed her a receipt of our hotel stay. Sadly, the owner changed her position and only offered a future week's stay in one of her VRBO properties, which did not appeal to us because of our prior experience.

We did not want to take this extreme step of posting these comments, but the home owner did not respond to us when we went through the standard complaint channels via VBRO. In the end, we feel this post is necessary considering our experience.

Owner's Response: Please read all our other positive reviews...we take pride in our charming cottage. We saw this review coming a mile away! This review was written six months after their stay at the cottage. On the second day the guest called and said that the home was not as clean as she would like....I immediately sent my housekeeper to go and touch up the house. My number one priority is to make sure the home is ready and clean for every guest. The smoke alarms where working and all doors and windows have locks that work. The housekeeper when locking the door after touching up the house left the keys on the door by mistake. When she got home she notice she didn't have the keys and went back to get them immediately.. On the third day of their stay...the guest told me that her husband needed to leave the cottage early because he needed to get back to work...She asked if she decided to leave a few days early if she would get a refund. I told her that I would try to find a guest...It's very hard to find another guest with such short notice specially in spring break. I told her that if I didn't find anyone that I would give her a credit for a future visit. A day later the guest told me that she was leaving the cottage. I told the guest that I would give her a one week stay in one of our cottages for any future visit. We tried our very best to make the guest happy...We have many past guest that return every year.
