Overview

Orange County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Blessing Cottage is a charming, vintage cottage located two blocks from one of Laguna's most popular surfing, skimming, and boogie boarding beaches. Main Beach, downtown Laguna, and the Art Festivals, are all within an easy five to ten minute stroll. The convenient location, plus the many amenities of the cottage, create the ultimate Laguna Beach vacation home.

The cottage features hardwood floors throughout, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, two bedrooms each with a queen-size bed, a sofa sleeper, and a dining area that seats six. The lush gardens in both the front and back yards provide a tranquil retreat. Enjoy cooking and dining under the grape arbor on the large back patio, overlooking the lovely landscaped garden. There is an outdoor warm water shower to rinse off after a day at the beach.

The cottage has been lovingly furnished by the owners with treasures from their travels. Original art adorns the walls, and the bookcase is filled with many interesting books and treasures. Everything needed for fun at the beach has been provided, including beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, umbrella, and beach towels. There is an outdoor shower with hot water so you can rinse off after the beach.

Come to Blessing Cottage to experience the very best that Laguna Beach has to offer.

So many blessings!

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughters and I spent a week in our favorite spot - Laguna Beach. The blessing cottage was our haven - so much fun to be able to walk out the door, down to the beach or town in a few minutes. The amazing thing was even with a June heat wave, the canyon breezes at night were cool and comfortable. We slept like rocks! And how about that great outdoor shower in the sunshine! We even hosted a reunion of 15 friends on the patio one night under the grape arbor and lights - perfect for reconnecting! One of my favorite streets is Thalia - being a bit away from the heart of town. Loved the Stand and Active Culture's acai bowls and iced coffee with homemade almond milk! Thai Brothers in town made us remember what good Thai tastes like again! We'd love to return again as Laguna Beach always calls for us over here on the East Coast!

Truly A Blessing

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Blessing Cottage! Loved the charm of this adorable cottage, especially the patio and garden. It was great to unwind after a day at the beach with a glass of wine under the grape arbor. The beach is just a short walk down the street, and the owners provide everything you need, including, towels, chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, and a cooler. The cottage is fully stocked with dishes and cookware-when traveling with a younger child it is so nice to be able to cook dinner in or have a hot breakfast right away in the morning. I would definitely recommend Blessing Cottage for families!

The location is great, shops and restaurants are within walking distance, and there is a Ralph's grocery store very close by.

Lush gardens, original artwork, and all of the conveniences of home (even a washer and dryer!) make Blessing Cottage just a perfect vacation spot! It is a special place and we look forward to returning. The owners are very easy to work with and acommodating, A+++ for all aspects of Blessing Cottage!

Wonderful spot for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

Hi Debra,

Your cottage is so charming we love it! And the crib and high hair are perfect thank you. The neighbourhood, beach down the street, location and fenced grass yard are all wonderful.

Thank you

A blessing to spend time at Blessings Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Blessings Cottage - didn't want to leave! Perfect location to just park the car and walk to town, grocery store, restaurants and beaches. The owner was very easy to work with and the website accurately reflects the cottage, but I think the back patio is even more charming than the pictures show. In fact, we BBQ'd twice during the week we were there and entertained friends on the patio with take out food. The cottage was immaculate, fully stocked, and appliances worked well. Want to mention that the beds were very comfortable, too. There were plenty of bath towels as well as beach towels, umbrellas and chairs. So nice not to have to bring all that stuff from home. This would not stop us from staying again next year, but have to point out that the street location is very busy and noisy during the day; it was quiet at night. I have already recommended the cottage to friends...they just can't book the week I want next year!!

Everything Hoped For And More

  • 5 of 5

I have been vacationing in Laguna Beach for the past 35 years. This year, we decided to rent a home, instead of staying in a hotel. I found Blessing Cottage online, and it is truly a blessing. The pictures accurately display the warmth and comfort of the cottage. The grounds are outstanding. Blessing is an easy walk to Thalia Street beach, the grocery store, fun shopping, and of course, Forest Avenue. We will return next year, for 2 weeks!!

Peaceful Retreat in the Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay in this charming, quiet cottage. It was very thoughtfully equipped with everything needed for a carefree holiday - beach towels, outdoor shower, WiFi and even a good selection of foods. The books, paintings and personal touches made it seem like a home rather than a holiday rental. We especially loved the beautiful garden and shaded patio - ideal for lunch on a hot day. The owner was kind and easy to contact. We found the staff at Laguna Cyclery in the same street particularly helpful for bike rental, and we bought several delicious vegetarian meals from The Stand next door to it and yummy muffins from the Orange Inn. We also had a great surf lesson from Thalia Surf. We all long to come back one day.
