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
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
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.
I stayed a month at Sharon's cottage. Sharon lives next door and was very accommodating. The cottage was well suited to my needs but would be a bit crowded for more than about 3. I liked the close proximity to PCH and Aliso beach and the relative calm compared to locations closer to the downtown area. This cottage is about 3.5 miles from PCH/Laguna Canyon Rd so was pretty handy to get to the 405 and 5 freeways. If you are going to rent this cottage, be aware that the downstairs bedroom has a low ceiling. I am 5'8" and still had to bend over a bit to not bump my head. The heater did not consistently work so the thermostat was changed but there were still problems. I'm sure that this problem will be fixed for the nest tenant. Also, there are no markings on the oven control to show temperature so I didn't use the oven. There is a slight mildew odor in the bedroom but it didn't bother me much. Finally, the cottage is very well equipped in the kitchen, with towels for bathroom and beach use, with beach chairs, coolers, etc.
I had a really great weekend at Sharon's cottage by the sea! One I'll never forget! My boyfriend and I wanted to just get away for the weekend and I'm glad we chose this place. The beach is walking distance and as well as a few restaurants. Shops and other restaurants are just a short drive away. Sharon greeted us shortly after we arrived and she was the sweetest and even had fruit waiting for us on the kitchen table. If you want a quiet place to just relax this is definitely the spot the beaches are beautiful and everyone is friendly. Definitely looking forward to returning in the future!
We really enjoyed meeting you and our stay in your beautiful cottage. Thank you so much for the fruit basket & bagels. It was so nice being able to walk to the shops & beaches, as well as have breakfast in the front garden patio. The property itself was as described; clean & nicely furnished. Would highly recommend staying at this property.
I would definitely come back here. The location and price can't be beat.
Sharon's Cottage By The Sea was spectacular. From the moment we booked (first-timers with Home Away) we were impressed with the ease and comfort level we had with the owner. We arrived and all was ready for us and Sharon greeted us upon arrival and welcomed us to the neighborhood. The property is super cute and owner had really thought of everything needed to make our stay comfortable. The cottage was clean and well maintained and owners were very personable and gave some great recommendations for nearby attractions. The property was within a short walk to beachfront and various dining. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a get-a-way to Laguna Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and are definitely planning a return visit.

That description is so true, but it forgot to mention Sharon’s graciousness. We found breakfast including a bowl of fresh fruit when we arrived, as well as a binder full of information about local activities. This was a terrific vacation; we will definitely be back.
