Laguna Beach cottage description

Sweeping close-in ocean views from this romantic, restored 1920's Beach Cottage on prestigious Cliff Dr, doors from Heisler Park, in North Laguna Beach. Located just south of the historic Crystal Cove cottages and the prestigious Pelican Hill golf and resort. Amazing panoramic, close-in ocean views and steps to three sandy cove beaches.

There is a queen bdrm and two twin trundle-style beds in the living room, sleeping four. This cottage is not suitable for four adults, but rather for a single, couple or family with 1-2 minors under 16. (Our two bdrm cottage is VRBO 310136).

This one bdrm cottage is approximately 700 square feet, in impeccable condition and feels like Martha Stewart meets Pottery Barn in the Tropics. Three stunning sandy beach coves 50-150 yards away, a comfortable 3-5 minute walk.

New granite kitchen, high white wood tressle beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, 40' flat screen TV with mulitude of cable channels, deck with gas BBQ and table/chairs overlooking the Pacific. Lower brick garden patio for sunning. Perfect for relaxation.

Not suitable for partying groups. Do not be concerned that we back up to Coast Hwy. It is not a 'Highway' but rather a two lane road in each direction with stop lights every couple of blocks. There is a garden courtyard between the street and the cottage. The kitchen is in the back overlooking the gardens.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1988

                              About the owner: Art and Gerri have lovingly restored these 1920s era beach cottages, both our one bdrm cottage and our two bdrm cottage. They are always a work in progress with ongoing new updates and overall maintenance. We love to restore older homes and have done so in our home town of Glendale, CA, as an avocation as well as a business. It is our mission to preserve the Southern California architecture of the past. Gerri is a real estate broker with her own boutique Glendale real estate company and Art is our property manager and manages investments. Art has worn many hats as he is retired from the LAPD and also a retired General Contractor. Along with our four adult children, two grandsons and our friends, we have enjoyed our many days at our beach house and feel very fortunate to have such a special vacation home. For our many guests, new and returning, we are happy to provide a special vacation home away from home.

                              Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
                              We were fortunate to find a fantastic coastal vacation home location on the renowned California Riviera. We have specactular ocean views combined with adjacent beach access as well as close walking proximity to the charming Laguna Village. We have traveled to many coastal areas throughout the world including southern Spain, the coastline of Italy, Sicily, Gibraltar, French Riviera, So American Atlantic and north Africa, as well as up and down the California Coast, Oregon Coast, East Coast and Mexican Riviera. Whenever we are home here in our vacation spot of Laguna Beach, we marvel how this spot is one of the most spectacular we have seen in the world, if not THE MOST SPECTACULAR place on earth. Yet, Laguna Beach remains a small beach town...but with sophisticated restaurants and amenities. One can relax in quiet serenity or find stimulating activity and entertainment all minutes away.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Our cottages offer awesome sweeping close-in ocean views as well as a premier location surrounded by private upscale Laguna Beach coastal residences. We are a walk-past 10 homes to three spectacular sandy cove beaches, as well as a seven block walk to the charming Laguna Village. A short 8-door stroll brings one to Heisler Park, which provides awesome vistas along pathways threading above the beaches of the Pacific below. Heisler Park takes you to Las Brisas restaurant patio overlooking the Pacific...enjoy yummy chips and appetizers, and, if you so desire, a myriad of enticing margaritas...and then you have just a short walk home! Our cottages are fantastic and convenient in a serene ocean view setting. Located a 2-7 min drive to Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Coast, Newport Beach and Pelican Hill, one can experience many delights of being surrounded by some of the most expenseive real estate in the world. Hotel rooms in nearby resorts range from $500-1000+ per nite, and are one room. Our cottages are half those prices and are 3-4 rooms each, like a small house. Combined with nice furnishings appropriate to the cottage style, rather than furnished with cast offs and garage sale pick ups common to many vacation rentals, as well as providing an alternate to dining out each meal by providing upscale granite kitchens and al fresco dining areas, our 1920s built Laguna Beach Charmers offers a fun and exciting experience that prompts many return visits by our guests. We are confident once you stay with us you will be back again and again.
