Guestbook comments from the owner

This recently remodeled cottage is just a five minute walk to beautiful Laguna Beach. Everything is updated and all amenities are provided. The owners are even kind enough to provide beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board, and beach towels.

The cottage itself is quaint and relaxing with a beautiful patio area which we used often.

Alison was an excellent hostess and went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

I would highly recommend the green cottage (or the yellow cottage) to anyone who is looking for a wonderful place that is immaculately clean, close to shopping, restaurants, beach and everything else that Laguna has to offer.

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Looking from the outside, you would not imagine how spacious this cottage really is! I stayed at the green cottage for about 6 weeks and it only took a day or two for it to feel like a home. The personal touches that Alison has put into the cottages are remarkable. Everyday for the first week, there was something new that I hadn't noticed the day before. Be it a picture on the wall, or the light on the ceiling in the second bedroom, that looked like shark teeth. I can not say enough about what a wonderful host Alison is. Anytime I called her, she would get back to me right away, even while on her vacation. She felt more like a friend, than just someone you were renting from. As I said you would never imagine the space inside. Particularly the main bedroom. The pictures do not do it justice. The high cathedral ceiling, to the patio doors out to the back deck, made it that more awesome! I have always wanted to stay in Laguna Beach and that is exactly what it is. Having access to the beach anytime of the day, not having to drive or park , was priceless! I would highly recommend a stay here and will be back again!

So close to everything ! Even the beach !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in one of the cottages of Alison was a match made in heaven. The owner, Alison had taken care of everything. Even a good bottle of Californian wine when we arrived. The cottage is the perfect home to be in Laguna. Close to the beach - like 3 minutes walk - close to Wholefoods and Forest Ave which has the best restaurants if you do not feel like cooking. If you do, the cottage has it all to help you cook your favourite meals. Even a BBQ outside on the cozy patio where we have breakfast too. The rooms are very clean and so nicely "beachy" decorated. You know, we are going back within 2 weeks - so we are hooked ! You will be too !

We stayed for a month last year and again this year. The cottage is darling and the location is superb. Just a short walk to beach, great restaurants and Whole Foods. Alison is great. We will be back!

Super chilled Laguna Beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently had a fantastic break in the beautiful green cottage. From my initial booking queries, through to the day we checked out, Alison was super helpful and made everything really easy for us. The cottage itself is exactly what you'd want in a location as cool as Laguna Beach. It feels like you are staying in a slice of history, but with all of the modern facilities that you need. Location wise, its ideal. Just a brief stroll and you are in the town with all of its restaurants and shops, and more importantly the wonderful beach. I can't recommend this place enough. If you are considering making a booking, do it. You won't be disappointed!

My wife and I have now stayed in the green house for a month for the past four years, the last three of which were under Alison's command. We have booked again for 2017, which should say about all that is necessary about our view of the house. We love being in Laguna Beach in the winter and have not seen a rental that would suit us any better than the green house. As others have noted, just about everything important for a beach vacation or monthly getaway is within walking distance. The only exceptions are movie theaters (the one in Laguna Beach has closed) and golf courses, both of which are within easy driving distance. The green house is well maintained and clean. And Alison is a great proprietor and hostess. In sum, the house is the perfect setup for a great vacation.

Great Experience in Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying, I am not one for lengthy memo or reviews. I had the pleasure of spending some time at the cottage in Laguna Beach. This is a great (clean and updated) cottage in the center of everything Laguna Beach has to offer. Walk to beach, run the path to Heisler Park, walk to farmers market on Sat. walk to Laguna coffee, go to Loft Bar at night for Music, etc, etc, etc... You get the point. Alison is a great host and made sure everything was perfect!!!!!!!!!!
