Perfect Location - Easy Walk Everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 couples) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cozy Laguna Beach Cottage! It's perfectly located a few blocks from downtown restaurants, boutiques, grocery stores and galleries, and just steps to the beautiful beach. It was so easy to pop in and out throughout the day! Though we rented a car, we didn't use it at all during our stay.

The house is nicely outfitted with all the kitchenware and linens needed to feel right at home. It also has nice touches like beach gear, books and games for visitors to use during their stay.

A nice bonus was the super comfy beds. We would definitely stay here again! The owner, Lou, left thoughtful instructions on how to operate various functions of the house and responded promptly to every communication, from our original inquiry to our departure.

If you're looking for the perfect spot to access all Laguna Beach has to offer, look no further! Avoid the hassles of downtown parking, and stay right in the heart of it all. Highly recommended!

Charming and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was well maintained and organized with everything to make our 9 day vacation perfect. At one time we had 5 adults and one toddler. Kitchen well equipped and we enjoyed the BBQ on courtyard one evening. I brought my small Poodle and the fenced front patio was huge and she played ball and we loved sitting outside. Beds were so comfy and bathrooms had so much storage. The cottage was so warm, inviting and cozy we felt at home. I have been coming to Laguna for 36 years and this is the best location. A block to Forest St and charming shops and nearly across the street to beach. Surrounded by all the great restaurants.Loved chairs and beach toys owner has for guests. Owners checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed. We loved the Laguna Cottage and highly recommend for a perfect Laguna experience.
