Laguna Beach Property

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice place and close to the beach, with lots of beach items in the closet, which we took advantage of.

There was plenty of plates, coffee cups etc. There was pretty much everything need to prepare food. We were happy with the round table so we could get all 7 of the chairs around and all eat at the same table.

There was in worm in the sheets in the second bedroom. When we tried to take it off the sheet it pretty much squished in the kleenex so we washed the bedding.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed the accommodation and your visit. We pride ourselves on making sure that the house is ultra clean and stocked to the highest standards. We have no idea how a worm found its way into one of the sheets. Please accept out sincere apologies for any inconvenience. We hope to see you back again soon. Lou

Super location for a Laguna stay

  • 4 of 5

Our family of five adults enjoyed our Christmas week at this location. It is well-located, a short walk from downtown Laguna and the beach. Even in winter, we had some nice beach days. The house was convenient and comfy, and we appreciated that it was very well stocked (towels, paper goods, beach toys, etc.). The owners were helpful and friendly, and after we encountered an initial glitch with the heater, they saw to it promptly. We cooked in the kitchen and with the outdoor barbecue, as well as enjoying local restaurants. (Note: The kitchen shelves are higher than usual, so short folks may find this aspect challenging.) If you visit Laguna, we especially recommend the cliff-side walk from downtown to Heisler Park, the Laguna Art Museum, strolling Forrest Avenue, and driving to Crystal Cove State Park to see the old cottages, hike, or play at the beach. Taking the boat from nearby Dana Point to Catalina also made a great day trip.

Wonderful cottage near everything!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Lou's place last-minute and are so glad we did. Lou was super accommodating to our needs, and took the time to meet us personally and show us around upon check-in. The cottage was clean, the beds were super comfy, and the linens and towels were all top-notch. The home had everything we needed for our stay, and the location could not be beat. Just minutes to downtown and to the beach. Laguna Beach is a fabulous town, and we'd happily stay here again.

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!
