About Sharon McNair

I am a retired Geriatric Social Worker and have had this property since 1979. I have had the privilege of living in Laguna Beach since 1963 and love the town, neighborhood and area, so when my guests ask about the history, of the area I love relaying this information. There is also several books in the cottage pertaining to the history of Laguna Beach and area.

Sharon McNair purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Sharon McNair chose South Laguna

This property is an ideal place for a vacation because the neighborhood is very quiet, there are two parking places in front, and guests can feel they have a small home all to themselves. They can walk to the beach, or a mountain trail or just puruse the neighborhood and feel very safe. The cottage has all the amenities they could want and is close to excellent restaurants

What makes this cottage unique

The most unique aspect of this property is that it is not attached to any other structure so my guests feel the have their own private house. they can walk the three beautiful public beaches and It is also in a very quiet and safe neighborhood away from all the traffic and noise of the city. The patio, yard, and deck provides a relaxing atmosphere, and the weather is very mild.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

Was in town on business. Hope to get back for relaxation and will definitely try and stay in Sharon's cottage. Clean, had everything I needed, and I loved the deck out front. Even was able to work out there - and internet followed me out! The ceiling in the downstairs bedroom is a little "short" as stated, but the bed was so comfortable. It was great to have a full size washer and dryer. Thanks for everything Sharon!

Perfect Little Stay in Laguna

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's cottage was just what we were looking for! The location was great, you could see a little sliver of the ocean from the kitchen window and the neighborhood was cute and quiet. The cottage is small, but we spent most of our time exploring Laguna Beach and Dana Point anyways. Sharon was very welcoming and warm. We hope to stay again!

Cute and very clean! Simplebut yet very extravagant.

  • 5 of 5

Two gal friends and I have had a stressful school semester with being students, full time eployees at our jobs and the heartbreaks of poor boys in our life. We wanted a day to run away to the edge of the land, which was the beach. We needed to feel the openness and adventure in our lives again, this cottage was magaical! I brought us closer to our awareness and pride in our lives, it was easy access for us to get food, see our cali friends and defiantly play at the beach easy. We defiantly will remember this cottage and will carry on our expierence here with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much sharon for a lovely space.

Paradise in Luguna's Garden Cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can share with you that Sharon's Garden Cottage is the most adorable sweet place to stay. Sharon has taken such time and attention to every detail of comfort, cleanliness, and kindness one could image. The cottage is exactly as you see from the photos charming, pristine, and every thing is at your disposal. The garden is lovely, and if you like charm- it oozes with Charm !

The location is simply breath taking a view right to the mountains and ocean, its location is central to everything you could need or want.

I hope to return to enjoy the lovely and warm hospitality of Sharon and her charming and sweet cottage.

Warmest Wishes,

Amy
