The Secret Cottage
Nestled among soaring banana plants, succulents, daisies and lilies is a- one -of a kind cottage which successfully captures the ambience of Laguna Beach as we once knew it. A former summer home of a twenties movie celebrity the house has been completely restored with comfortable furniture, an updated gourmet kitchen with a family style built-in dining room decorated with beautiful Indonesian antiquities. Art work is found throughout the living areas which include a large living room complete with cable television, two generous sized bedrooms with comfy beds and courtesy robes for after=hour leisure, a private office complete with, sofa, desk, chair, and wi=fi access, two inviting bathrooms one with shower and the other with tub.
The front "dutch door" opens to a repurposed sun room, now an attractive reading room, where my husband and I enjoyed novels and magazines as we sank into the two chairs following one of our many walks down to the beach.
In the evening we took our cold drinks out to the very private patio just outside the dining room's french doors. Once again we felt miles away from the challenges of daily life, enjoying the garden foliage. It was difficult to say goodbye to this exceptional retreat, so we decided to come back for another visit this Fall.
Toni and Len,
Both of you were delightful guests. We enjoyed so much hearing about your past experiences living in Laguna Beach. Can't wait for your return to hear more wonderful stories....So happy you found a second home and so happy for us to have found long lasting friends. Happy to have shared our cottage with you both. Our best, Lydia and David
This is a picture perfect two bedroom cottage.
It’s two blocks to the beach and an easy walk downtown to shopping and restaurants. The owner was extremely helpful and answered any questions we had. We stay the month of March and street parking was never a problem. We hope to come back again.
Perfect Holiday Getaway
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week in this beautiful Laguna Beach Bungalow. We rented it to have cook a Thanksgiving dinner for your college son and his friends. We had a blast cooking in the kitchen, enjoying the outdoor living space and walking the beach. It was perfectly appointed and we couldn't have wanted for anything. Fantastic location to the beach, restaurants and art galleries. Thank you!
Excellent stay in Laguna Beach
We very much enjoyed our stay in Laguna Beach and the house was so lovely. The house was immaculate and was fully stocked to meet all of our needs. The front and backyard had lush, well manicured plantation and we were able to sit outside an enjoy our AM coffee. The house was walking distance to everything we chose to do: Heisler and Main Beach, Village area, Art shows/Pageant of Masters. Our children loved the house and especially the private outdoor shower (very spa like) which was perfect after spending a day at the beach. I truly hope to have the opportunity to stay at this property again in the very near future! Thanks for allowing us to stay.
Hello Anita, Dennis, Gabriella and Rylan,
It was such a pleasure meeting all of you. You were all so delightful! Glad you enjoyed the cottage and everything Laguna Beach has to offer. You are all welcome to stay at the cottage anytime. Thank you for taking care of everything as if it was your own home.
Lydia and David Bell
The pictures do not do this cottage justice. It is beautiful and immaculate! My sisters and I were there for a sisters weekend getaway. When Lydia showed us around the house we said we could stay in the house all weekend and never leave because it was so great! The location is great being about a 10 minute walk to the village which has numerous restaurants and shopping. It's also about 2 blocks from the beach. Even after our trip we are still texting each other about how perfect the house was and how much we miss it. David and Lydia were very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
Delightful, quiet cottage in Laguna Beach
Dear Lydia and David
Thank you very much. We have just returned from a wonderful week in your lovely cottage and enjoyed it very much
The cottage lived up to the photos and descriptions on the internet. It is a beautifully and sensitively designed home. The beds are wonderfully comfortable, the kitchen is immaculately clean and contains every appliance and cooking utensil one could wish for. The beach chairs, towels and boogie boards were an unexpected and most welcome bonus.
The complementary wi-fi was a boon.
The nearby supermarket in Boat Canyon is walkable and most convenient.
The owners recommendation of Fusion Sushi was well considered and led to a memorable meal.
We met the owners on arrival which led to a smooth and personable handover.
We do plan to return, (assuming you will have us!)
Thank you for sharing this wonderful cottage with us, I can only highly recommend it.
With all good wishes to you both.
