About Larry Mixon

The owner is a local and wanted a an old style cottage on the west end so my children and guests can experience the beach like he did 40 years ago.

Larry Mixon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Larry Mixon chose Laguna Beach

This Laguna neighborhood actually owns the beach front, 3/4 of a mile. It may be built on some day but not in my lifetime.

What makes this cottage unique

Key West colors, walking distance to everything you need, unique neighborhood. Sit on the front porch swing and gaze at the Gulf.

Winderful , great neighbors, GREAT RENTER, close to beach, and grocery store

  • 5 of 5

We left with a heavy heart because of a death in the family but Larry did all to help us. We enjoyed eating dinner at Thomas's, oh one night I had the BEST banana split. Back to the house all you need, our fur babies enjoyed the yard, and trust me our 7lb old man tried to find away out but failed. We grilled (mmmmm), even had cleaning stuff. He helped instantly when we thought there was a TV problem. My husband HUGH sports fan. We loved it but when the wind starts blowing...we live in AL tornado alley so don't freak out it's the palm trees blowing. (Smillie face)

FYI. we went to Winn Dixie because we were close. NO!!! DRIVE TO THE STORE CLOSE we were shocked how WD was more $$$.

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

I don't need a fancy overpriced hotel. This little place is just what we needed. You are close to the beach, Thomas's Donuts and beautiful sunsets. Thanks Larry, we'll be back again.

Great little home away from home.

  • 4 of 5

Nice little house in a great neighborhood. Rooms are larger than the pictures make them appear. Short walk to beach and store. Prices at the Carousel store were very good. If I had know they were as good as what they were we would have spent more of our money there and stayed away from Publix. While hurricane Hermine was blowing around we did not have any problems as it did not hamper our stay. We would stay there again. Thanks again for allowing us to use your home. We will tell others about this house.

Family Loved it

  • 5 of 5

My family of five stayed for a week and we loved it. We pulled up the house, which is adorable, and we could see the ocean from the driveway. That made us pretty happy and we were not disappointed when we got inside. The rooms were comfortable and the kitchen and bath were well stocked. The back porch was very cozy and there were plenty of beach chairs and towels for us. It took about 5 minutes to walk to the beach and we did stop at Thomas's a few times for ice cream. The AC was cold and stayed that way all week. The Wi-Fi worked well. I can't really comment on the TV, I think it was on for about 15 minutes the entire week we stayed. We had no complaints at all and we would definitely go back for another visit.

Quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Cute little place! Air conditioning works awesome! Short walk to the beach! Love that there was a washer/dryer. Only thing it needs is a broom! It was hard to vacuum up the sand! But we enjoyed our stay! Thank you Larry!
