Great cottage for a family

  • 5 of 5

Another picture perfect stay in Laguna! We thoroughly enjoyed this cottage as the location is unbeatable and the host, Lou, is the best! He is quick to respond and very accommodating! The house is beautifully maintained and stocked with everything including sunblock, detergent and coffee filters! We love being able to park the car for the entire week and enjoy the beach, the shops and the restaurants...living like a local!

Great Location Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with our two sons and their wives, stayed there for 5 nights recently to attend our daughter's wedding. The property is easy walking distance from the beach and restaurants. The owner Lou was very helpful and immediately solved a small problem with the fold out bed. That bed has a quality blow up mattress which made it easy for our son and his wife to sleep comfortably. We also had a friend use the small bed for a couple of nights in the small third bedroom. We happened to be there during a warm week and were glad that there was air conditioning. We didn't realize how golden it is to have assigned parking stalls and Lou was nice to give us 2 spots. Everything you need is there from beach towels, shampoo, boogie boards, to a nice bottle of wine Lou provided for us. The price is a great deal compared to some of the other properties we compared it with.

Spectacular Location/Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We have three kids, and travel a lot. It is very rare to find a place that makes ALL of us happy, and well this one hit the nail on the head!!! Not one complaint from any of us. Everything about this rental was perfect from the start to the end. It was clean, plenty of room, perfectly located, and had every essential you could think of (including a mini sewing kit). This cottage was AWESOME. It accommodated our needs perfectly. We loved that we could just walk out the door and explore Laguna. We will be back and will absolutely rent from Lou again. (and the sheets on the beds were so soft...amazing)

Cozy cottage in the heart of Lauguna Beach

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this comfy cottage. Everything is welcoming and clean. The beds are some of the most comfortable we have ever slept in! Very easy walk to grocery, resturants and beach. Lou the manager was beyond accomodating and very professional. I would recommend this property to friends and hope to possibly stay there again next time we are in SoCal

Quaint accomodation in Laguna Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this quaint and charming cottage. It had everything we needed and more! The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner provided us with great service. The beds were extremely comfortable and the cottage is in a wonderful location!! Everything you need is right there-gas station, grocery store, beach, downtown Laguna. We would definitely consider coming back and staying here!
