About Dr. Marianne Spamer, DDS
A family cottage owned by a beach-loving family. Both our children attended college in Southern California, so this was our meeting place. We have celebrated Thanksgiving here with 22 relatives, 3 meals a day, 2 turkeys, and no leftovers! (mashed German potato pancakes for breakfast). We have beach toys, beach chairs, mats, towels, suntan lotion...everything that we need, so we need not bring extra stuff every time. We even have the lobster pot, electric turkey carving knife, and 2 coffee grinders.
Dr. Marianne Spamer, DDS purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Dr. Marianne Spamer, DDS chose Laguna Beach
This is a lovely beachside village with wonderful year-round weather
What makes this Cottage unique
We can walk to the village of Laguna Beach, have off-street (34-foot long driveway, fits a camper as well as 2 large-size cars), parking for 2 cars, and we live on a quiet street. We just park our car and walk everywhere. Ralph's grocery is 4 blocks away, Whole foods is 3 1/2 blocks away, and has the BEST picnic assortments, or quick pre-cooked yummy dinners. The winery is the longest walk, near the dog park, but they have added a local wine tasting room to the Laguna Beach visitors center 2 blocks from us. There are many churches, meeting halls, 5 live theaters, and too many to mention music and entertainment venues. We can cook, or eat out at a new restaurant every time we get together...and rarely the same one twice! Lobster rolls at Slapfish beach side restaurant is a must!!

A true Laguna Classic
My family and I recently stayed here for about a week. It was the perfect place for our family of 5. Each kid had their own room. The wow factor of this house is that each room has a ceiling fan and AC. It is not very common for houses in Laguna to have AC, and since it is summer it was a huge treat to have. You can walk anyway in Laguna from this house. It made vacationing easy with our kids since we were able to walk to the beach. The house is very kid/baby friendly. There was a high chair and a pack n play available for our twin toddlers to use. There was also enough beach toys and boogie boards to take down to the beach. There is also an outside shower, which is lovely to use after the beach or anytime! It was a special treat to be able to use the house and visit a place that we love as a family.
Thank you for the great review! We update our cottage constantly and after 12 years it is re NJ EWR / remodeled from fitting our college - age kids to our 3- year old grandson now!
Every area is gated and fenced...We have a wading pool and indoor Jacuzzi bath tub for lazy days!
For autumn renters / eventers, the best weather of the year is ahead! We purchased our Laguna Beach home in September / October 2004, due to the beautiful weather! No rain and 72-74 degrees every day.
When we visit, we walk downtown, to the beach and grocery stores, fine restaurants and art and music theater.
The culture is great here as well as the fine Dining and amazing beaches.
We hope to have you visit again and make this a family tradition!

Great location, nice amenities for a beach vacation.
Nice beach cottage with plenty of beds and touches for heading to the beach. Kitchen had wonderful appliances and all the comforts of home. Excellent location just 3 blocks from Main Beach.
What a Great Cottage Home!
We enjoyed our stay here. So close to town and the beach. You won't miss the sunset because you can just walk down the street.
The house has lots of beds and load in space.
The annex is in the back of the house and is not connected to the inside. So anyone who is staying back there just needs to aware that they need to come inside to use the facilities.
A driveway is long enough for a large SUV.
Overall very homey and we enjoyed ourselves.
Very enjoyable stay in Laguna Beach
This place is in a great location within two blocks of the main beach. The more I looked around the place the more little conveniences I found. Well stocked kitchen, games, plenty of beds that I didn't even discover until the last few hours. Plenty of blankets to curl up in. Comfortable couch. Nice TV's. Parking great in driveway. Host is very responsive to emails, spelling out exactly how to get in the house. Only negative was the pillows and sheets were not the most comfortable in the Master bedroom. I would still give the place 5 stars.
Thank you for the wonderful review.
I have provided about 20 bed pillows in the cottage of varying thicknesses and materials. Please feel free to pick and move pillows as needed. This year we purchased new sheets for all 4 bedrooms with good thread counts. There are 3 sets for each bedroom, but perhaps one set had a lower thread count. I will check with the cleaners and personally add another new queen set!
Thank you for the nice review and feedback. We love our cottage/ second home and try to make it the best for all our guests!
