The Owner purchased this townhome in 2008
The overall layout of the property is very cool, very mondern, and very comfortable. Wood Floors are great because carpet always gets dirty so you know when you enter the property that its clean. the furniture is great, nice big living room, big sofa, big T.V., fire place and sound system. Being able to entertain guest while you stay is nice, due tot he space of the living room you know you can do that comfortably. The bedrooms are a good size, the wood floors in the bedrooms are nice as well. This property is very modern looking, there are black walls, green walls, interesting art pieces that are up on the wall and all over the house. You feel as though you are in a house that is a hotel. The patio is excellent. The weather is already great, The trees out side provide shape, and when its dark out the fire place is nice to turn on. The patio furniture is comfortable. This rental is minutes from downtown laguna where there are many shops, great resturants and bars to go to. There are plenty of great beaches to go to as well, Laguans main beach is right through 133 canyon, Newport and San Clemente are 20 Mins in either direction North or South. The owner / Manager lives locally so if there is ever a problem he is easy to get a hold of and is there to fix any issues with in his control and responsability. There is nothing better then being on vacation, but feeling at home at the same time, this vacation rental gives you that very experinece. You dont want to leave.
When we checked in the first thing we noticed was that the garage door was not working. We had to raise the door by hand to gain entrance to the condo since didn't have a key and never did get one throughout our stay. There were no written directions for using anything including the TV which we never able to watch even after repeated calls and emails to the owner who, as it turned out, was out of the country after my initial phone call to complain of the condition of his rental.
We checked the kitchen and the cabinets were pretty empty. As it turned out most of the glasses and dishes were in the dishwasher. There was food left over in the refrigerator and freezer which was not welcomed. The patio off the living room/breakfast area was a disaster. The furniture was piled up to one side covered with droppings from a palm tree. The deck was dirty and other objects had been heaped in a corner. Also, once the furniture had been arranged and the patio cleaned by a cleaning crew that arrived the next day after my call to the owner we saw that the seating pieces had been splattered with paint of different colors as had the stone deck.
In the master bathroom there was a half a roll of toilet paper on a divider alongside the toilet - there was no toilet paper dispenser. There were two bars of used soap on the sink. I told the owner of this when I had my one telephone conversation with him and the next morning there was toilet paper and soap left at the front door along with a bottle of wine and new wine glasses.
The garage door was never fixed even though we talked to the owner's assistant who said she had someone out and couldn't fix it. We finally reprogrammed the overhead opener and the two auto openers.
The color scheme is pretty awful - red and black - and it appears the owner must have done it himself because the painting was very sloppy, especially in the master bath where baseboard had been removed and never replaced.
In the master bedroom there was a bed and a dresser and no bedside tables. In the guest bedroom the mattresses were on the floor and there was no other furniture. If you wanted to read in bed in either bedroom you couldn't because there was no bedside lighting.
The thermostat was taped over so that we could not adjust the temperature but we could turn the fan on and off. The lighting in the kitchen is awful as it is throughout the condo.
We fell in love with this place for so many reasons. This place was so relaxing. The owner was extremely nice and helpful.
Location: The place was easy to find (thanks to the owner telling us one glitch from google maps), it was close to everything. It was a great home base for me and three friends to tour around southern California. We toured Laguna Beach, San Diego, Anaheim (Disney), LA and Santa Monica. We were right in the middle of everything. We had a blast the whole week. It was nice to come back each evening to a QUIET neighborhood.
House: The house itself is very well put together, very modern, but still extremely comfortable. I wanted to steal a pillow, so comfy! The outside patio was perfect for bbqing and hanging out. There was plenty of space for everyone. We had a couple in one room, a single person in another, and there was a blow up mattress and a perfect loft area for a third person. The rooms could have fit more but we didn't find the need to squish, there was so much space. The art work and design touches made everything feel expensive and lavish.
Overall: Will absolutely come back again. I can't think of anything I would change about this place.
Definitely a home away from home. To begin with, the location is great. There is lots of room for everyone and the interior decoration of the home is beautiful. The home owner makes the stay really pleasant. Definitely will stay here in the future.
Definitely the nicest place I've stayed in SoCal. From the peaceful and quiet neighborhood to the spacious bedrooms. So close to all the beautiful beaches. I'll def be back next time I'm in town.
Between San Diego & Los Angeles, Close to Disneyland & Beach
