Thanks for the memories!!
Hi Marianne...sorry not to write sooner... We are leaving pretty soon...just wanted to let you know what a great time we had here...the cottage was perfect for us...nice to be so close to town and beach...since the traffic has increased since I lived here almost 30 yrs. ago. We took a few rides around but quickly came back to limit our travels to walking! Your place is very well equipped with everything...we didn't do much cooking but certainly could have if we wanted! I will recommend this to anyone looking to spend time here if they're looking for value and convenience! Anyway...thanks again SO much for the cottage... best...carol

Hello Marianne, We have rented your home for the past couple of years and also June 2011 for our wedding. I was hoping that you have availability for us to rent your home again this next summer in June . (it would be my husband, and two children and myself staying there) I was hoping to rent for 2 weeks this time, what is your availability in June? Thank you, Kris

The bedroom in the annex considered unfit …
The bedroom in the annex considered unfit …
The photos, video and property overview provided by the owner do not fairly represent the standard, condition and level of occupancy that was available for our stay. We had booked on the basis that 8 - 10 adults could holiday at the Cottage and as our family group was reduced to only 6 adults, we were confident that our expectations would be met. However, after only one night the 4th bedroom was considered unfit for occupation which resulted in a member of our party being obliged to take up accommodation at a local hotel. The 4th bedroom is a converted garage referred to as ‘the annex’ which is not accessible through the cottage and may only be entered from outside. Access is via a locked door and an area with a Jacuzzi which serves as the only ‘bathroom’ for the cottage. Within the bedroom / annex was a double sofa bed, bunk beds, a non functional washing machine which tripped the circuit breaker when connected, a dryer, a refrigerator, a microwave, old TV equipment, a desk and a wide array of discarded items and clutter. Many of the electrical items were on flying leads, multi plus and adaptors which are considered an electrical hazard and, potentially, a fire risk. The more serious of the deficiencies were made known to the owner by email within the first day or so of our stay and not rectified. On our return to the UK we confirmed in detail both these and other deficiencies. An email of 10/20/13 from the owner agreed a refund of $1,000 on the rental by certified check(s) which, to date, we have not received. It gives no pleasure to post such an unfavourable review but we feel it right to alert potential visitors of the more serious inadequacies that we experienced during our stay. G.O. – England

the house is so easily accessible to everything that it made the experience exactly what we were looking for. The house is small but wasn't a problem for us at all. Everything was there that we needed and the owner was very gracious.

Place is "Okay"

Place is very cozy - too cozy, but the location is great. Parking is a challenge if more than 2 cars. Bring your own TP (i.e. toilet paper)

Owner response: Thank you for the update. Usually we have 64 rolls of toilet paper, 24 rolls of paper towels, and 15 boxes of Kleenex. When I restocked this weekend, I only found 2 rolls of toilet paper. so sorry! It is all restocked and refilled. There were still 12 boxes of Kleenex in emergency to use. The cottage has 4 queen/ king beds and 2 bunk beds, so we recommend only 4 couples max or 2 couple with their kids. After that it does get "cozy". we have 1200 square feet but lots of big furniture, table for ten, lots of tv sets, and stored paper products, quilts, extra pillows and blankets. The cottage is turnkey, and has toothpaste, shampoos, conditioners, hair dryers, curling irons....very convenient, but all the amenities and extras take up storage space. We try to keep the cottage convenient with garbage bags supplied, 4 trash cans, all the refrigerator condiments, spices, coffee, teas, sweeteners as well. We are sorry if our renters have to run to the store, but compared to other rentals, we are very well-supplied. Marianne
The house is great in a fabulous location. The landlady is very accommodating and easy to deal with. You literally don't have to bring a thing; it's very well stocked. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it's a little too well stocked to the point that there's a lack of space to put your own stuff. The closets are stacked so high with sheets, pillows, throw pillows, blankets, etc., that there's no room below the closet bar to hang your own things. I just moved it all to the floor of one of the bedrooms. Converted garage leaves little room to move or put stuff. Tons of tchotchkes, shampoo bottles, room deodorizers, etc. But I would definitely rent this again (for positive reasons above) and just be prepared.

Owner response: Hello! We spent a weekend and filled 2 garbage cans with extra pillows and old quilts and old sleeping bags. In the summer, none of these items are needed, but in the winter, it is great to have the extra blankets, quilts and pillows. We all like to watch family movies on the sofas with our quilts, and spend family time together. The supplies dwindle each week, and more room occurs. We enjoy visiting our cottage with a small carry-on, knowing that everything we need is there and we never have to check our luggage. Marianne
Had a fantastic stay at this wonderful beach cottage. Ideal location with the centre of town just minutes away on foot. Every amenity thinkable was on hand and plenty of really useful local information from the owner. Can't wait to stay again.

Lovely Laguna Cottage! *****
Hi, Marianne, We are back in the UK after a lengthy journey. Many thanks for opening up your lovely beach cottage for us. The Laguna cottage was even better than we imagined. We loved the town, with so many fantastic walks and restaurants. Ate at Las Brisas as a final treat on your recommendation. All in all, our best vacation in years! Nikki

We did not want to leave!
Thank you for letting us use your beach cottage home, and making it our own for the weekend. The kids loved the sand toys, boogey boards, and paddle board. The adults were happy not to have to pack and bring beach towels and beach chairs. You had everything we needed. This being a test visit for future vacations and family reunions will make it even easier to pack next time. We have rented other places that did not have all the supplies, so that saved us more time to spend with the kids. We used puzzles and games, which were a nice touch for family vacations. Maybe having 5 television sets was too much, so we hid the remotes from the kids often. The kids also loved the bunk beds, Jacuzzi tub, and their private suite. It made bath time and bedtime a lot easier. Your home is certainly kid friendly, and I would recommend it to everyone from local families to visitors from all around the world. We barbecued every night, so all the bottles of propane were handy, and the kitchen fully equipped. We saved so much time, not waiting in restaurant lines, and the kids got to eat what they wanted, not what was on the menu. Again, so many thanks from our family, for a relaxing time, with hopes to return for a much longer stay. We are recommending your cottage to friends who visit Laguna annually, so hopefully you will have some more visitors.
