Easy as Sunday Morning
Easy as Sunday Morning
Everything was easy and enjoyable about this booking. Marija was friendly and very organized with the registration, contracts, etc. The house was an easy walk to Crescent Bay beach which was nice. The house was lovely, great wide open kitchen/ living room space and patio made it easy to hang out with my group of 8 without ever feeling crowded. With the windows open it had a wonderful cross breeze that made it feel like we were outside all the time. Beds were comfy and the 2 separate apartments in the back were perfect for my friends. I love that we were able to have our friends bring there dogs because it was really the only way they could join me in my birthday get away. I was concerned about noise due to it being on the Coast Highway but it was totally fine.

A Wonderful Vacation House for Extended Families or Three Couples!
A Wonderful Vacation House for Extended Families or Three Couples!
We rented Marija's house for our family vacation - my sister and I, our three grown children and one grandchild. It was perfect since there is the main house and two studios, one with a loft. Each area has it's own bath and one of the studios has a mini kitchen. The main house has a master bath and bedroom and a fabulous kitchen with everything you might need! We invited some relatives over to visit one day and there was plenty of room for everyone to visit and for those who wanted to stay for dinner, the outdoor patio seated additional people. The house is just a few minutes walk from several small beach coves, and a few minutes more to the main beach and downtown Laguna. We also spent several days at nearby El Morro Beach and Crystal Cove since we had family memories there. There are adequate beach towels and a couple beach chairs for the guests' use although it was helpful to have our own more substantial beach chairs. We had so much fun every evening cooking, eating, talking, playing cards, or using our computers/ipads etc. with the house wi-fi that we never even turned on the tv! The owner Marija was so helpful and accessible we can't say enough good things about her. We never actually met her but we had multiple communications with her and she was available to answer any questions or solve any problems via phone, text or email with very quick responses. We would return to this beautiful house in a heartbeat, and hope we have the opportunity to have another family vacation in Laguna.

Perfect vacation home!!
Perfect vacation home!!
Thank you so very much for letting us rent the place. It was a beautiful house and absolutely perfect for the occasion. I loved the open kitchen and living area. It kept everyone together while cooking dinner and such. The kids also loved the boogie boards and beach toys. I think one of the first things they did was pick out their boogie board! You have really made the place welcoming and effortless for families to enjoy themselves. We have decided as a family that we'd like to try and make the beach trip an annual get together. With my big move, weekends like the one we just had are so essential. Thank you again and I will be in touch for next Summer!!!

Great Quality and Attention to Detail!
Great Quality and Attention to Detail!
This is a very clean, interesting and comfortable property with lots of flexibility for families. We are from the UK; our two grown up children were able to join us from LA. They slept in the studio (which has 2 bathooms and a nice little kitchen), while we stayed in the main building (very comfortable bed!). The standards of the property are very high with plenty of cookware, games and books for nights in. The washing machine and dryer are very handy, all tucked away in a little laundry area. It is an easy walk to the beach, which is unspoiled and beautiful. Marija was very attentive and helpful - in fact, we decided to extend our stay in Laguna, because we loved it so much, and she found us another nice property as this one was not available. We would definitely come again.

We shared the place with another family. This is a beautiful house and well maintained. It was tight for the big people in the front house, but we had a great time in the kitchen and living room with fireplace. And the location to the beach is great!

Loved our stay at the Maison Blanc cottage! Great location in walking distance of shops/restaurants/beach - quiet, cozy and perfectly equipped for everything one would need for a stay in beautiful Laguna Beach. Enjoyed hiking at El Morro Canyon, Crystal Cove State Park and the Laguna Coast Wilderness areas. Dining at Starfish, Beach House and Mozambique were all excellent. Worst part is we had to leave!

My husband and I stayed at this lovely house located in N.Laguna Beach on PCH in February. The ownner was most helpful with any concerns and questions. The house was well maintaied and equipped. We walked daily along the beach. We enjoyed Thai Brothers, The Mandarin (across the street), Hapi Sushi, and La Sirena Restaurants.Captain Dave's Whale Watch in Dana Point was lots of fun.

We stayed at Maison Blanc from January 22 to February 5th 2010. We found your rental home as comfortable as our own home. The living /Dining space and kitchen are very relaxing and efficient. I like your gas stove better than my own! Loved all the books such an interesting collection, some of which I will certainly now have to purchase for my own. .The king bed was quite comfortable. I like to read before sleep and wished that there were bedside lamps so I didn't have to get out of the bed to shut off the lights. Walking along the waterfront through Heisler Park to town was a wonderful experience everyday,as well as the public beach access so the location of Maison Blanc was perfect for that.We really enjoyed our stay.

We just returned home to New York and I wanted to drop you a line about how lovely your house was to stay in.It was so very comfortable and easy to relax in. We weren’t there too much of the time but when we were, we were able to unwind. The kids liked having their own space, as did Jed & I.Your decorating is magnificent! I came home with ideas on colors, curtains, lighting, etc. It really inspired me to make some changes to our house in Scarsdale . By the way, can you tell me the make of the bed in the MBR and the curtains as well? I also fell in love with the dishes with the roosters on them. I’d love to buy them!

About the owner: Hi, I am Marija (pronounced like 'Maria') and your emails come directly to me! My number one priority is to provide beautiful, clean homes for guests to stay in. Travel as much as possible and get together with friends and family; good for the spirit. The greatest thing in life is to have hope! I travel between Arizona, Laguna Beach, Encinitas and Oceanside, CA. I love the beach, especially when it is hot in AZ! I am a Booking Agent who specializes in Ocean close properties, primarily along the Southern California Coast and also the owner of this property. If I cannot accommodate you here at our beach cottage, I would love to hear from you anyway. There are other properties here in Laguna Beach to choose from along with Encinitas, Oceanside or Hawaii! Many are here on VRBO, so send me an email to find out what is available for your next vacation!
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
The house is perfect as a vacation rental as it is walking distance to many places. Crescent Bay beach is a great body surfing spot. Shaw's cove is a favorite place for diving. I like restaurants and art galleries being close by. A stones throw away is a coffee pastry shop. One can walk to Heisler Park. A big grocery store is a few blocks away. More places to eat like Pizza! I also like the John Wayne Airport being close by. One can take Newport Coast to the house and beat all the downtown traffic.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the idea that guests can come and spend time here and enjoy the surround sound, the lighting, the ambiance of the home. The house has beautiful fixtures and all new modern appliances, the colors are lite and calming. The furniture in the living area is a dark chocolate brown which creates a nice contrast. The 10 foot granite bar sets the mood to have a good time! The patio is enclosed which creates privacy. The house has triple paned windows, sound board in the walls to prevent outside sounds from entering. The lighting is beautiful within the home.
