The Perfect Stay
My husband and I love Laguna Beach and this cottage makes our visit most perfect. Our hosts couldn't be more gracious and accommodating. The cottage is clean, airy, and cozy with laundry facilities available. Having assured parking available is a plus when renting in Laguna. However, with the short walk to the beach, our favorite restaurants, galleries and shops, many days our car doesn't move. It's a wonderfully relaxing get-away for us and yet we are within minutes of our family who lives in Aliso Viejo. For several weeks we get to be close-by grandparents with dinner in or out, morning coffee on the front porch swing, or a day at the beach with everyone.
Ideal Laguna Beach Cottage- Truly Magical!
My wife and 2 boys stayed in this magical cottage during the winter months. It is hard what to decide was best, the location, the accommodations or the hosts. The location is a short walking distance to all the excitement of the center village of Laguna Beach. No shortage of places to eat and shop. It's just a few blocks from the beach...You can either go to Main Beach, with it's boardwalk and iconic lifeguard tower. Our family adopted Sleepy Hollow beach as our go to beach spot. It has a little surf spot, with good snorkeling and bodysurfing on the smaller days. Perfect for the kids. There is even a beachside bar just one step off the sand.
John and Marie are about as good of hosts you could ask for. They were so good at making sure everything was taken care of in the house and that we were enjoying ourselves. They keep the accommodations and the surrounding spotless. I cannot say enough about what good hosts they are. Truly great people to meet and get to know!
My favorite part about the cottage was the kitchen. I love cooking and with it's central open floor plan, I could cook, listen to the supplied stereo and enjoy the rest of the family as they were in other parts of the house. It had a bread table to sit at wether for coffee in the morning or dinner at night. Although my kids would have a different opinion, they loved the cozy living room where they watched movies relaxing on the furniture. My wife loved the bedroom with the refined breezy decor with views to the village and the ocean. And everybody used the swing bench that is located on the covered porch at one time or the other the relax and wave at the passing pedestrians.
I can't think of a better way to enjoy the central village of Laguna beach than this cozy cottage. Thanks John and Marie!
Special place in a great location
We have just spent our 8th season in this cottage. It is located within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops and galleries, beautiful walks and good hikes. There is parking for your car. A washer and dryer are on the premises. The cottage is clean and very well-equipped. John and Marie, the owners, are so gracious to their guests. They take great care of the place and quickly respond to any needs you might have. Our grandchildren love coming over to use the swing that is on the front porch.This is a wonderful place to stay.
I've just returned from my winter respite at Marie and John's cottage. I love living in Colorado, but always look forward to a break from the snow and brown grass. The cottage is meticulously kept, with lots of blooming plants, groomed lawn, and a Camellia tree, which always to be blooming. Marie and John are wonderful hosts, always welcoming, and always there with any information, or help you may need. The cottage has a great location; close to the beach, many excellent restaurants, special shops, the library the recreation center, the Laguna Playhouse, and the Pageant Of The Masters--all within walking distance--even my Laguna Beach friends envy my location!! Laguna Beach is a treasure--a beach town which has managed to retain that "Small Town Feel", with a lovely view in every direction!!
What you see is a glimpse of what you get! We returned to Southern California and found this cottage to be a peaceful respite from the maddening crowds. The location is walking distance to almost everything we like to do and we only needed the car when we were leaving The Beach. The cottage is well stocked with quality items and equipped for a pleasant stay. We were here for the month of November but the time went by so quickly and we are sad to have to leave. We hope to return and make this a home away from home.
Great place to stay in Laguna Beach
Lovely cottage, in a perfect Laguna Beach location. The house was an easy walk to Main beach, the boardwalk to Heisler Park, shops, galleries and the Saturday farmer’s market. The beds were comfy and the bed linen, bath and beach towels were clean, of good quality and looked pretty new. The cottage was light, bright, clean and well-equipped, with space to park a car out back. The beach chairs and umbrellas were very useful when we visited the magnificent beaches nearby. We had a very warm welcome from Marie and John, along with fresh flowers in the bedroom, a bottle of wine in the fridge and cheery message on the blackboard. All round a super place to stay if you are lucky enough to be able to spend some time in this beautiful corner of Orange County.
