"We rented this house between Christmas and New Years this year. We had 3 families and he house was a perfect fit. We found the house to be exactly as advertized and in very good condition. We liked the location also - walking distance to Huntington Beach Peer and just across PCH from the beach. Particular features we liked about the house were the Viking Range, elevator access to the second and third floor, beautiful ocean view from all floors and the four car garage. We look forward to a return visit here and hightly recommend it to our friends and anyone else looking for a stay at the beach."

"From my first contact with the owner, she was most kind and accommodating. As others have written, she was available at all times and didn't hesitate to help or make suggestions. The cottage is spectacular.... MUCH more than the photos show. Comfortable times ten. Beautifully decorated. In a perfect location. As someone who likes to cook, I remarked several times about how well the kitchen was equipped. I have a vrbo-listed home and THIS is the kind of review i want to read. And this is well deserved. You cannot go wrong spending a week or longer here.... I had never been to Balboa but quickly made friends. Most of all, enjoyed relaxing in this fabulous cottage. I live on an island in the Caribbean so it takes a lot to impress me... and this cottage and the people here certainly did. Thank you so much, K."

"Me and my fiancee rented this cottage with our parents to enjoy a nice time together before getting married. It was the perfect fit. Wire cottage definitely has beautiful simplistic rustic charm and is spacious. Located in a slightly secluded property (because of trees surrounding property) in a quiet neighborhood, this is ideal for privacy and relaxation. The cottage is very close to the beach, five minute walk or less. Also, there is a supermarket just down the street. Laguna is a great place to stay if you are interested in art. There are numerous galleries along the streets and in downtown. It is about a 2-5 min drive downtown, and maybe around 20 minutes to walk depending on speed. There are a lot of nice beaches to go to in the surrounding area. Laguna has a nice relaxed vibe but is also vibrant and busy on weekends. The cottage itself: the kitchen was well equipped and even had extra seasoning available to use. The deck is awesome----> good weather, nice views, and a bbq:) The shower was great. Hot water worked well. No problems with any amenities and had everything you probably will need. There was a wi-fi code. The lock box for the keys was easy and convenient. We really did not need to contact the property manager or owner during the stay. If you like privacy and a low-key place that is like your own for a fair price then this is def. the place to come. Also as a plus, it was cool to see the before photos on the wall of when the cottage was the only building built on the surrounding land. Also, nice to see the original owner's photos on the wall. They even have an unpublished manuscript copy of one of Mr. Wire's works. I love books and was happy this was a originally a writer's cottage so this was an added charm for me. My entire family enjoyed their stay. We would definitely stay again if given the opportunity and would recommend it as a place to stay to our family and friends."

"We stayed in the lower unit and it was wonderful! It looked exactly the same as in the pictures and we were actually more impressed with it once we were there in person!! Very clean and made our stay very comfortable! The owner was so accommodating with some schedule challenges we had faced. We wish we could have stayed longer....and would definitely rent this condo again!!!"
