About Roger and Karen

We have always loved the beach and this is a great place the year round to experience. We enjoyed enhancing this true Craftsman's Cottage into a comfortable feeling home. This Cottage is ready to be Your Home Away. We have had many family gatherings here, and all enjoy this special place. Come stay and play at the beach. We will make sure every detail is in place and ready for your arrival. Just say when...

Roger and Karen purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Roger and Karen chose Orange County

We loved Laguna from our first family vacation here. Enjoyed spending our time at the beach and snorkeling. Discovering its coves and beaches brought us to this special place and Cottage. Its charm and comfort along with its great location to the beach was a dream come true. Take a journey back to your time spent playing at the Beach. A perfect Beach House to have fun with family and friends!

What makes this cottage unique

Wake up gazing at the ocean with your first cup of coffee on the front porch already makes it a great day. Being relaxed sitting in wicker chairs you talk about the new day. All while the sun dances on the water. The kitchen has it all for a favorite breakfast to start the morning. Then stroll over to the park at Seal Rock and visit the local seals up close. By the time you return the beach is warm and ready for your day playing on the sand. Take the beach chairs and umbrellas and beach towels down to the cove for your delightful day. A fun BBQ on the patio and being around the wood fire pit at night with loved ones tops it all. Your Home Away is only a few blocks to town walking along the ocean or taking the Trolley to all the shopping and delights Laguna Beach has to offer. Above all, your experience is sure to leave you relaxed and refreshed.

Excellent choice for couples and families to vacation together. Plenty of room for all to enjoy and still find places of their own.

Perfect Location with great owners

We stayed in the house April 2017 and had a great time.

It was perfect size, short walk to 2 different beaches and lovely porch for coffee in the morning.

Fantastic cottage, location, vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Roger and Karen were fantastic hosts and made sure we were taken care of before, during and after.

The photos and description were spot on for what to expect, and it was even better than we expected. It was everything we needed for our family of 4 (8 and 10 year old). All we needed with easy walk down the street to the beach / cove area. We look forward to staying here again.

A Charming Cottage near a Stunning Cove!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in August at Roger and Karen's Shaw's Cove Cottage and truly loved our vacation. From the moment we pulled up we knew that this cottage was loaded with charm. The cottage is an original craftsman type home on a spacious lot with an ocean view from the front porch. the Cottage has a wood foundation and is well furnished throughout. The windows are the original single pane and Roger and Karen have done an amazing job to preserve the look and feel of a California beach cottage. The cottage can be found in the nicest part of Laguna, near Shaw's cove and Crescent bay. This location is among the best in Orange County near the pristine coast line and it turns out that La Brea Ave. is very quiet and peaceful. Our family of 4 had plenty of room at the Cottage; the kids 12 and 14 each had their own bedroom my daughter had 1 of 2 full bathrooms. Roger had all the beach gear for us, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, snorkeling gear etc.. Our family went to the beach every day. Snorkeling at Shaw's cove is excellent with visibility of 10-15 ft and plenty of fish to look at. At low tide we explored the tide pools which were amazing and filled with ocean wildlife. This stretch of coast line from Crescent Bay to Heisler Park is truly amazing as you can see contrasts of colors, the turquoise ocean, blue skies, black rocks that guard the coves, stunning cliffs, golden brown sand and crashing waves, a truly magical place. The beach at Shaw's cove is perfect for families, its a sandy beach and at times has small waves that are fun to body surf. Shaw's cove has a lifeguard there in the summer months who turned out to be a great resource. When our family was not at the beach, we would hop on the Laguna trolley (note, it stops near the cottage for pick up and drop off). The trolley is free and our kids used it to visit downtown, explore 1000 step beach, and or to find the perfect surfing spot. My wife and I used the trolley to shuttle us and our friends to the various restaurants downtown, its truly nice not having to drive in Laguna as parking can be headache. At Roger and Karen's cottage you have a driveway which can accommodate 2 cars. I highly recommend Roger and Karen's Cottage at Shaw's Cove, its a magical home set in best location along the sunny coast line in Laguna Beach. We do plan on renting the cottage in the future.

All and more than promised

  • 5 of 5

I am torn writing this review, because we had such an awesome time. The house was great, the location awesome (2 blks from 2 different beaches), Roger and Karen were communicative and responsive. There is a bunch of gear for the beach and a real and flat driveway. We actually got two cars on it..The reason I am torn, is while it's a great place, I really don't want you to rent it when we want it, and this surely won't help our cause. Eh, Roger and Karen deserve it, so there you go. You won't be disappointed.

april visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at Roger and Karen's cottage. We had a group of six including my wife's parents and our 8 and 10 year old boys. There was something special here for all of us. The cottage was well-maintained, comfortable, and in an excellent location. Our kids loved the daily visit to Shaw's Cove and Crescent Beach and we made good use of the body boards and beach chairs that Roger and Karen provided for us. The adults made daily walks along the beautiful coastline to the main beach area in town. Roger and Karen were amazing hosts and went the extra step by quickly mailing us a quilt that we had accidentally left behind. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return in the future. Roger and Karen's Shaw's Cove Cottage was the ideal place for us.

Shaw's Cove BEAUTIFUL Beach with crystal clear calm water swimming, great snorkeling and kayaking. Enjoy walking to the beach.

Crescent Bay just steps away, great for boogie boarding and swimming.

Nestled in a quiet neighborhood. Cottage has few steps and easy access. It is user friendly and with a low step in shower. Stroll to the Village along the park and watch the surfers. Walk to Las Brisas along the ocean and watch the sunset. Take the Trolley to the Art Festival and Village. See nature at its best overlooking the Seals at the park at Crescent Bay. Have fun walking to dinner at the Royal Hawaiian.

These are just a few of the bright spots to enjoy on your vacation.
