Laguna Beach cottage description

Elegantly appointed and modern in style and sophistication, the Cress Point Villa is a luxurious beach retreat. Sweeping Pacific Ocean views and soothing ocean waves set the tone for relaxation and renewal while ocean breezes flow through the home. A recent renovation brings chic beach style to this 2 bedroom, 1 bath bluff-top beauty. The modern cottage accommodates 6 guests and provides all the comforts of home, plus a stunning view. Designer décor and high-quality craftsmanship ensure a posh and pampering vacation experience while exploring Laguna Beach.

Decidedly upscale, this classic cottage takes full advantage of the fashionable Laguna setting and pristine ocean views. Guests will appreciate the modern fireplace in the living area as well as the captivating views while relaxing. A large work desk is included in the living room as well as a PC for guest use – at no additional charge. Cress Point also provides complimentary wireless internet access. A wall-mount flat screen TV hangs in the living room for guest enjoyment and comes equipped with a DVD player. The Hancock and Moore leather sleeper sofa’s high quality construction provides a very comfortable night’s sleep. It sits in perfect complement to the leather accent chairs for a comfortable conversation area as well as an additional sleeping space. Modern coastal artwork combines with designer accents to enhance the home’s remarkable craftsmanship. Custom flooring, crown moulding and wall finishes are all featured to provide a luxurious feel. Plush area rugs grace the floors and luxurious draperies accentuate the windows, framing breathtaking ocean views.

Rich dark wood floors lead to two private bedrooms that offer a luxurious atmosphere with graceful Queen-size beds featuring top of the line air-loom mattresses. Beautiful high thread count linens adorn the pillow-top mattresses to welcome sleep and tranquility. Ample mirrored wardrobes are included in each room as well as ceiling fans, warm lighting and a flat screen TV. Guests will experience deep restorative slumber as they are lulled to sleep by the crashing waves.

A full-size gourmet kitchen provides guests the opportunity to prepare nutritious meals at the villa. Chefs will delight while cooking in this luxurious space, which boasts high-end stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and all the utensils necessary for serving and preparing meals. When it comes to enjoying meals, guests can choose to either dine inside at the glass-top table, or at the ocean-view bar table located in the private ocean-facing courtyard. A gas barbeque and stone firepits are also available in the courtyard. Stairs leading down to Cress Beach are conveniently located just outside the property gate, which makes beach outings effortless. An outside shower is available on-site for post-beach rinse-offs. Cress Point comes thoughtfully equipped with beach chairs, towels and umbrellas for guest use and the convenience of garage parking is available for one vehicle.
From the alluring coastal views to the elegant décor, Cress Point is an extraordinary beach retreat. Guests will enjoy luxurious relaxation while vacationing in this delightful villa.
