About the property

House, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

This little cottage is a single home all of it's own. It's nestled between the hills that surround Laguna Beach and the Pacific Ocean. It has a beautifully landscaped yard and is only 2 blocks from the most beautiful parks and beaches in all of Laguna. This cottage was built in the late 20's and has been completely remodeled. With it's high ceilings, hardwood floors, indoor and outdoor fireplace, outdoor Jacuzzi and best of all the tempur-pedic pressure relieving Swedish mattress and pillows, you'll have a hard time leaving for the beach! With one of the owners being a sea captain and owner a 34 ft. sailboat; you'll have the opportunity to sail an afternoon along one of the most beautiful coastlines in all of California! We can take you whale watching or out for a sun-set/moon rise cruise. This house is located in North Laguna. Within a 3-5 minute walk you can be at the beach, parks, downtown, art galleries, restaurants, shopping, grocery store and festivals! You don't even need a car to stay here. It would take you longer to drive to these places, than to walk!! We are in the center of everything here, yet it's far enough away to escape 'everything' when you feel like doing so.

About Susan Campbell

25 years ago my husband and I met riding our bicycles across the United States. He was from Laguna Beach and I was from Wisconsin. 2 years later we got married and moved to this beautiful area here in North Laguna. Don is now a retired firefighter and I'm a retired kindergarten teacher. Don now volunteers for the Resource Center in Laguna Beach and upgrades orphanages in Mexico and I received my United States Coast Guard Captains License and turned my passion of sailing into a little business. I now take people like you sailing along the beautiful Pacific Coastline looking for whales, dolphins and just enjoying the sunsets, moonrises and beautiful scenery that Laguna Beach is so famous for. We love Laguna Beach and enjoy sharing our little piece of paradise with travelers from all over the world. All the best, Don and Susie Campbell

What makes this house unique

The unique benefit is the location and charm of our rental. It's a simple cottage built in the 20's that has been completely remodeled just this year. It's located in a quiet neighborhood but only a 3-5 minute walk (2 short blocks) to the most beautiful beaches, parks, art galleries, downtown and grocery store. It has a large yard which is very unique for Laguna! We sacrificed square footage for a peaceful yard with a garden, fountain, outside fireplace, Jacuzzi, BBQ and outside dinning table. We tried to create the Mediterranean feel we love so much with cobblestone and red brick landscaping and flagstone sidewalks.

Our Favourite Place

  • 5 of 5

This year was our third at Magnolia Cottage. For the first time we spent two weeks in Laguna instead of one. There's plenty to do - we were always occupied with places of interest. As always, we found the cottage charming, peaceful and well appointed. The garden awaited us at the end of each day where we relaxed under the shady trees. Susie and Don are very friendly hosts, and enhanced our vacation in beautiful Laguna with their suggestions for excursions, and helpful information about the surrounding area. Can't wait to come back!

Lovely cottage in garden setting

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Magnolia Cottage. Susie and Don are wonderful hosts. The cottage is in a fabulous location, easy to walk to the beach and town. The cottage itself is beautifully designed and so very comfortable with all the amenities one needs for a month stay. The backyard garden with barbecue and hot tub added to the enjoyment! It exceeded my expectations and I rate it as exceptional. Would visit again!

Magnolia Cottage

May 26 - May 31, 2013

We visited Arizona from Connecticut for a wedding Memorial Day Weekend 2013 – after a wonderful wedding celebration we left Arizona in 103 degree temperatures and headed across the desert to Laguna Beach. We arrived and it was 73 degrees, sunny with beautiful blue skies...AND it was within that same temperature and the sky was the same gorgeous blue every day! Magnolia cottage was just the most perfect place to vacation & relax…it had everything we needed & more for a wonderful stay. The yard itself was its own little sanctuary. Our hosts Susie & Don were the most gracious, accommodating people we could have hoped to meet. Susie took us out for a private sailing trip one beautiful afternoon, she let my husband sail the boat and now he is hooked – what a wonderful trip we had. The cottage is within walking distance to just about anywhere you might want to go during your stay. Beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants & galleries are all within a few blocks. We hope to return one day for what we know will be another wonderful vacation!

A Gem! Cozy, Clean, and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The Magnolia Cottage exceeded my expectations. This cottage is close to everything that is important- the park, beach, downtown Laguna with shops and restaurants, Starbucks (under 5 min walking). We usually walked when we stayed in Laguna. The cottage itself was very well designed. It's cute and comfortable. There are hardwood floors thoughout, granite countertops, the bed was SO comfortable, the TV was great quality with lots of channels for days we wanted to stay in and find something on tv. The hot tub and firepit were just the cherry on top! It is clear that Susie and Don put a lot of heart into the cottage and I am so happy that I had the opportunity to stay here! Hopefully we will return! Lastly, Laguna Beach is absolutely beautiful! If you vacation here there are lots of small hidden beaches with incredible scenery! This seriously was one of the best vacations I've ever had! We really got the chance to relax before heading back to the busy midwest.
