Laguna Beach cottage description

Ocean View Charming Beach Cottages. These cottages are built in the 1920's and have been completely restored to perfection. Each cottage has wood burning fireplaces, hardwood flloors, fully stocked kitchens, wonderful linens, and comfortable beds. They are just steps away from beautiful Victoria Beach. An uncrowded 'locals' beach.

You are also just a short walk to the famous Montaqge resort. You can enjoy the spa amenities and wonderful restaurants.

Traveling with friends then rent both cottages, and I have a key to a secret door that will ajoin the large deck betweeen them. Making it a wonderful way for families to travel.

Come experience Laguna Magical Cottages.

                We loved our cute and very comfortable cottage! It really surpassed it's description and pictures; we felt immediately relaxed on arrival...it's like the place itself is a warm hug! There is a nice fireplace, comfy couch and table in the living room. The outside patio had pillowed chaises and a BBQ. We sat outside while we cooked and enjoyed the sunset's bright red and orange colors and wonderful ocean breezes! The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed and had pops of color and sweet vintage touches. We met our host and hostess near the end of our stay and they couldn't have been more gracious and helpful in every way possible! We would recommend this spot to our best friends and family. It's close to all of the beautiful beaches, great restaurants and fabulous shops and sights in Laguna Beach. Enjoy your stay. You'll fall in love with this wonderful place!

                We had an absolutely wonderful time in the cottages...we rented both cottages and it was perfect! We had two families and our dogs so when we were not at the beach the kids had the best time playing on the multi level deck, which are completely enclosed and safe for the kids and dogs. Both cottages are adorably decorated in their unique way...I loved the beautiful chandeliers in our cottage, the White Picket fence, and the kitchen was a great size for us to cook for all the kids. Shelley, the owner was a perfect host and had Everything we needed from beach chairs, boogie boards to kitchen spices including a nice bottle of wine, what a nice surprise!! It's just a short and pretty stroll to Victoria Beach. Victoria Beach was perfect, it was quiet, clean and beautiful! The kids had a great time exploring the tide pools, playing in the sand and boogie boarding. We loved the cottages...thank you Shelley for having everything for us, we loved the cottages!

                magical cottages were better than expected. My friend and I rented both of the cottages and stayed for a week with six kids and three dogs. The cottages worked perfect due to the completely enclosed, multi level patio decks, and large beach property. The kids and dogs were safe and able to play outdoors when we were not at the beach. The washer and dryer was also a plus. The cottages have everything supplied in them..just like home. From sand toys to beach towels, all you need is your clothes. Victoria beach is perfect for kids , quiet, and has tide pools for exploring. Shelley is great. She is easy to get a hold of and very helpful. The cottages are very well priced for what you get. We had a wonderful vacation! Thank you shelley for the pleasant, no hassell experience!

                We stayed in the Secret Garden cottage which is right across from Victoria Beach which is private and beautiful; we were able to bring our dog on the beach during the day since it was fall season and the time restrictions are lifted. The owner Shelley welcomed our doggie by leaving a fresh bowl of water on the deck and a nice bottle of wine for us! The deck overlooked the ocean and we spent 4 of our 7 nights grilling on the little weber and enjoying the views and relaxing. Shelley explained to us there is traffic noice since the cottage is facing the Coast Highway but we found that after 9 pm it quited and we slept peacefully. Have to mention the bed is a queen but it is tucked close to the wall on one side which makes it cozy. The description of the kitchens is gourmet and I would say that the kitchen is very charming, clean and cottage like with a nice window and windowed door leading to the outside. The bathroom also has a nice windowed door to the outside and has lots of shelves and towel.robe hooks. There is good used of space and good closet space; lots of windows to let in the light and double french door in the bedroom. All is as described except there was no mention of the stairs; one section from the street to a landing then a bit steeper set to the front porch Not a problem for us or for most but a heads up if you need ADA access. Off street parking was a HUGE plus and there is room for an SUV or two smaller cars. Laundry room below the main floor is very convenient. Best restaurant is right below and in view Of course the village is less than two miles away for more amazing choices. If you are looking for a real California vintage coastal cottage to nestle in this is for you. I am a third generation native Californian and I treasure the simplicity of those times. My grandmother had a wonderful cottage in No Cal on the coast and you can't replicate the charm by staying at a Ritz Carlton or Montage. They're all the same: this is unique. Enjoy!!

                We travel from South Dakota by car The cottage has everything we need to have a great vacation..our own space,comfy bed,kitchen and plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas for those long beach days..Shelley provides alot of extras with the stay..it is always clean and has beautiful fresh flowers/wine when we arrive. Which is great since we have been on such a long journey..So all we do when we get there is move in and enjoy We found a great delivery pizza place called Zpizza love it..very fresh also there is an old italian place that you can get to by using the free trolley It is just up the road..spectacular pasta!! Plus don't miss Woo Hoo Fish tacos..awesome The beach is just a few steps away..Victoria beach is a very relaxing stretch and we always see a seal or dolphin playing around..that is so neat. Loved the Sawdust art festival and the quaint downtown merchants..give them some love while you vist. I recommend this cottage to all of my customers and friends it is a must stay!

                Owner response: Thank you so much for such a great review. My husband and I go to great lengths to make sure all our visitors have a wonderful time. Victoria Beach is one of the best beaches in Laguna and to have such easy access to it is a plus!

                We have been in a deep freeze for over a month and decided to go to Laguna Beach. The weather was forecast to be in the 70's in January. We found the Magical Cottages online and called the owner Shelley. Shelley was absolutely the best. She help us with all of the details of our stay. When we got to Laguna the weather was even better than forecast - it was in the 80's - incredible sunsets and views of the islands. The cottages had everthing, all we needed were some clothes. Shelley even provided us with wine the first night. The walks on the beach were incredible, we were also welcomed by a pod of dolphins. At that moment we could not have been anywhere else better in the world. LOVED THE COTTAGE....

                What a sweet and airy bungalow - perfect for a relaxing vacation in LB. Shelley was very warm and helpful with her suggestions...the views were first-rate and just steps away from one of the prettiest beaches (Victoria). Not to mention Tabu Grill, Yogaworks and the Montage Spa...hope I can get back there again!! Would especially recommend to anyone looking to get a more authentic (less touristy) LB experience...

                We stayed in the cottages in Novembernof this year. It was a wonderful week. Being able to walk to the beach and to many fine restaurants is an absolute plus. Also Shelley provides some beach toys for all to enjoy. Everything you need is there. The cottages are very clean and very cute. We rented both sides and could enjoy a pleasant cocktail on the patio. I will definitely recommend these cottages to my friends and relatives.

                The cottage was exactly what we pictured for a 'beach' cottage. Very homey and Shelly provided us with everything we needed. Even shared a bit of her 'Laguna' with us. It was central to everything and a short beautiful walk to the beach which was indeed secluded. The view was beautiful and we were able to watch all the sailboats, etc on a daily basis. PCH is located right in front of the cottages and is busy, however that would not deter us from staying again. And you could not find a nicer more friendly person than Shelly. We have already passed on the website to our friends and told them they won't go wrong with this vacation property. Thank you Shelly for sharing with us at a time when we so sorely needed some 'downtime'!!
