Our Laguna Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a month long vacation in Laguna Beach. Our stay at Verna's house greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was in perfect condition. The newly renovated bathrooms were terrific and the kitchen was fabulous -well stocked and ready to go. When we arrived wine, cheese,and fresh fruits were waiting for us. What a great surprise after a long flight. Every evening we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the sun setting over Catalina Island. We never tired of spending time on the deck watching the scenery.

Verna was extraordinary. She made sure any questions we had were promptly addressed. She even supplied us with a binder filled with notes and directions for everything in the house

We were so thrilled with our stay, that we have already committed to Verna for an even longer stay for next year. We can't wait to return! If you are interested in staying in Laguna Beach do yourself a favor and contact Verna. This is the house to chose!

Views, Privacy, and a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as it is in the pictures. The views are to-die-for with a long extended balcony, A rarity in the Laguna Beach area. All rooms except for the back entertainment/2nd bedroom have amazing views and nice ocean breezes. The property is well-kept and the owner was quite accommodating, and we are very particular!

The kitchen is very well stocked if you choose to cook and there's plenty of storage throughout the property. The owner will even store your luggage giving you a little more wiggle room if you need it.

There is a short but hilly walk to the free Laguna Beach Trolley which we took advantage of often. There is a quaint neighborhood restaurant down the hill. Victoria Beach is about a 10 minute walk, easy down and challenging but do-able trip up. The Montage is about a 15 minute walk with just a few seconds along the bike path on PCH, the rest sidewalk paths. Just a short fifteen minute drive to Dana Point, Newport Beach, or Corona del Mar.

Uber was an easy option as most rides were just a few dollars into the Village.

We were grateful we had the parking spot as finding a spot can be a challenge during high season. We were also enjoyed having the air conditioning to take advantage of on the days when temps were unusually high.

The full-size washer and dryer were nicer than those we have at home!

In the two months we were there we got a chance to know the very nice neighbors.

We hope to get a chance to visit again soon!

great place

  • 5 of 5

Loved the place. As others stated beautiful views, wonderfully decorated and great location. Owner also purchased us a Bullitt blender when we asked if they had one and they did not. The owner went out of their way to accommodate us when their was a problem one day in the kitchen area. Hope to come back soon to this magical place in Laguna beach.

not your average vrbo

  • 5 of 5

After many years of searching for the perfect summer home……we have found this treasure where we stayed for three months last summer.

Not only is the location fantastic: 8 minutes’ walk to Victoria Street beach, 3 minute drive to the Montage walk (the most beautiful walk in the world) and 5 minutes to Main Beach (most fun place on the Coast). Not to mention the Penthouse itself: everything is in pristine condition and of high quality. The place has a magical atmosphere and you can’t not be happy and feel celebratory to be there. The views….every night a sensational sunset! Oh, and the fabulous showers!!!

The owners are superb human beings and have gone above and beyond in helping us with some unusual issues. Any little problem you might find is immediately taken care of in the most pleasant manner.

Please don’t book too long…..give us a chance to come back!

Lovely home, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i had the opportunity to rent this unit for 11 months and not a day went by that we didn't pinch ourselves how lucky we were to live in this cute Penthouse. Great location, great owners, amazing views, spectacular sun sets. We felt very fortunate to call this property our home in 2013. We wish anyone else who stays in this very cool place, as much peace and happiness as we enjoyed.

My husband and I have stayed in this Laguna Beach Penthouse for 2 summers in a row. (3 months at a time). The quality re-do of this beach style home makes it first class from the granite counter tops to the wonderful shower heads. Modern and totally up to date the VIEW is amazing and we love having our coffee in the morning and wine and cheese at night during the BEAUTIFUL sunset views on the private balcony. Views from the living room, kitchen and master bedroom are breathtaking. The Owner is a PLEASURE to deal with and although only a few minor issues...she dealt with them immediately! Everything you need is supplied! We just brought our clothes and toiletries! Oh, and it has air conditioning (during the FEW times we needed it) and pets are allowed! You won't find that in very many places in LB. We would be staying here in 2013 but have decided to BUY a home in LB. So if you want a wonderful experience, close enough to WALK to the beach or in to town, quality upscale accomodations and wonderful people to deal with...stay here! I can't say enough nice things about it.
