MORE ON PETS! Please tell me if you are bringing pets or NOT, else I will have to ask. I have also had guests tell me they were not bringing pets but did to avoid the pet fee. I have had to start a policy of evicting those that are not truthful. I do check.

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.

Beautiful house with awesome front porch area. Only a brisk walk away from the beach and close to an amazing place to eat (Thomas donuts)! Larry was a pleasure, and look forward to renting from him again.

Great for a vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage was perfect for my family of 5. We did borrow an air mattress from family that drove from Georgia to accomadate all of us, since couch is not a comfortable piece of furniture to be sleeping on. Other than that the cottage had pretty much everything we could need. Love the fact that there was a washer and dryer to use. Owner responded promptly to address any concern we may have had. I love being able to rent a stand alone property especially with children, makes me be able to relax more k owing there isn't someone wall to wall with us or above or under that my children may disturb with noise. Will definitely look to rent again if we come back to the area.

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 $$$.
