    "My family and I have stayed in this home many times over the years. It is always really clean and well maintained. The location cannot be beat! You are within walking distance of restaurants and shops and only 2 blocks from the beach. The view is great and the home itself is really nice. The fireplaces are lovely in the evenings and the little fenced in backyard is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. We have never had any complaints or issues with the management, they have always been really communicative. We look forward to staying in this beach house for many years to come!"

  • Guest House in Laguna!

    "My daughters and I stayed there over spring break and didn't want to leave! We found the guest house nicely appointed with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, which was a plus! The views from the terrace were breathtaking, especially at sunset. We enjoy walking, and chose to walk to the beach rather than drive. Charlie even brought us sand toys and extra beach chairs! Overall this was one of our best vacations ever (quoted by my 12 yr old daughter)! We will definitely be back to stay at the guest house in Laguna again."

  • Great Stay!

    "We used this property while my wife was having surgery at UCSF. Previously I had stayed at a hotel recommended by UCSF which turned out to be incredibly noisy. This location is simply phenomenal; there is a plethora of restaurants nearby and groceries/other supplies are within a block. I mentioned the noisy hotel because this location was really, really quiet. We never heard any noise from the street which was important for those of us that were getting limited sleep. As for the landlord; I cannot say enough nice things about him. We were distracted by the seriousness of the surgery and Jim was very patient with me in fielding questions that, in all likelihood, were on their website. He also checked with me (even though he was on vacation) to see if I needed anything and asked how my wife was doing. Class, pure class. The hospital was an easy walk with a Starbucks just around the corner to jump start your day. I noted three or four other coffee shops if you are not a "Bucks" fan. I hope I do not have to have another extended stay at UCSF but if I do; I will try and coordinate appointments around this property's availability!"

  • Great Bolinas Stay

    "We visited for a week with our two young children and had a great time. Everything was as good or better than expected. We really enjoyed exploring the neighborhood and surrounding area, and found the house to be very clean, beautifully decorated and accented with a beautiful backyard. The scale of the house, yard, etc... was perfect for us. I don't think I've ever seen so much birdlife right out my window before, and the quality of light in this area is outstanding. The walk to the town of Bolinas or Agate beach is on the long end (about 20 minutes), but perfect for a quick morning jog or doable if you are in decent shape (not so much for toddlers, but it is an easy area to drive particularly mid week). The owners clearly have a lot pride in the house and the area, and keep it very well stocked and maintained. We definitely hope to return some day."

California Travel Tips

Our country’s largest state by population, and third largest by area, is home to a wonderful diversity in cultures, climate and landscapes. Here are the top sites to see and things to do in California by region:

The Bay Area

The Bay Area is best known as a free-spirited locale that is home to the biggest tech giants in Silicon Valley, including Facebook, Twitter, Google and Microsoft. It’s anchored by two major cities - San Jose to the south and hilly San Francisco, a major tourist destination on the north end. Here are the top things to do while you’re in the Bay Area:

- Visit the sites in San Francisco. You can’t miss the iconic Golden Gate Bridge - bike across it, walk or take an open-air tour bus to experience the massive bridge in all its glory. Visitors can also take a ferry and tour spooky Alcatraz Island. Other attractions include shopping on Fisherman’s Wharf, checking out the sea lions on Pier 39 and immersing yourself in science at The Exploratorium and California Academy of Sciences. If you’re traveling here in the summer, bring a jacket! SF can be blazing hot and then overcast and chilly within the same day as the famed fog rolls in.

- Head north across the Golden Gate to see the giant redwoods in Muir Woods and check out some excellent wineries in the charming Sonoma and Napa valleys.

- Visit the amazing Monterey Bay Aquarium and nearby beaches San Carlos Beach Park and Pebble Beach.

- Be one with nature at Yosemite National Park in the Sierra Nevadas or climb the famous Half Dome and El Capitan mountains.

- Go skiing or participate in other adventure sports in Lake Tahoe, just north of Yosemite.

Southern California

SoCal, as it’s sometimes called, is one of the sunniest and most celeb-studded places in the country. There’s plenty to do and see in and around Los Angeles and San Diego, the two major cities in the area. Here are the top spots:

- If you’re traveling with kids around L.A., head to Disneyland in Anaheim - the only Disney Park built under the direction of The Man Behind the Magic himself. Or, check out Knotts Berry Farm, a perennial childhood favorite that first opened in 1940. There are roller coasters, kids’ rides, games and plenty of fun for everyone. Don’t miss dining at Mrs. Knott’s California Marketplace for the renowned fried chicken, biscuits and boysenberry pie.

- L.A. is also the epicenter of the entertainment industry. Check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame, take a tour of Universal Studios and hike in the area surrounding the Hollywood Sign.

- Catch a Lakers game or popular concert at the Staples Center

- Take a hike in the Joshua Tree National Park in the beautiful Mojave Desert.

- Southern California is also home to some excellent festivals: Coachella Music Fest in Coachella Valley, the annual L.A. County Fair and the Newport Beach Film Festival, not to mention the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards. If you want to see some major celebrities, hang out in one of the cafes or restaurants on Rodeo Drive.

- If you’re traveling with kids in San Diego, Seaworld or the esteemed San Diego Zoo are excellent options, and Legoland in nearby Carlsbad will provide hours of fun.

- The valleys in central California are less-populated than the coastal areas, but one must-see is the Hearst Castle. It’s an ornate, palatial, 165-room home built for newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst and set among 127 acres of gardens in San Simeon, halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
