Just Gorgeous and Well Located
My wife and I stayed in the condo for 35 days ... The condo is in an excellent location close to all kinds of services, restaurants, art galleries, etc. It is also well furnished, super clean, and just gorgeous with complete kitchen appliances!! Best of all, it has a beautiful ocean view can't get tired of... I will go back to that condo anytime...
Heaven in Laguna Beach!
I’m saddened that I have to even leave a review as I did NOT want my stay to come to an end! I spent a month in the Penthouse and it is far beyond what you can imagine. The awesomeness started with Verna and each day staying there only got better! The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is one that I would want in my own home! There is nothing you will need to bring other than groceries! Upon my arrival, Verna had surprised me with a nice bottle of wine, fruits, veggies, cheese, crackers and more! Now, let’s talk about the view! The balcony extends from around the home all the way to the bedroom. There are no words to describe the beautiful sunsets you will experience overlooking Catalina Island. I have a picture of each night to remind me of my stay that I will treaure forever. Don’t pass this place up...as you will regret it! There are also SO many amazing restaurants and shops to walk to that I rarely needed my vehicle. Thank you Verna for a life time experience!!!
This place is clean, well appointed, and conveniently located with easy access to downtown Laguna... The owners are amazing and so accommodating to any special requests you have. Views are absolutely breath taking... We were very lucky and was able to watch grey and orca whales migrating south a few times. Great memories ! Thank you Verna....
Thank you for the review Dave...we were so happy with you there taking care of the Penthouse. Please send some photos ..especially the whales. Much happiness in our new home!!
A marvelous home with a wonderful views!
We spent the month of July in Verna's lovely home while escaping a brutal July in our home town of Tucson. Sitting on the wonderful balcony all along the front of the house having our coffee every morning was great. And watching the fireworks on July 4th from the balcony was spectacular! The house is really comfortable and very well stocked with evreything you might need including various sizes of storage bags! Verna greeted us warmly and had left a bottle of wine and a bowl of fresh vegatables for us. The house is just a short walk from the free Laguna Beach trolly that took us into town to shop, attend art festivals, and enjoy the wonderful Laguna Beach restaurants. And it was a short walk down to the many little hidden coves that dot the coast in Laguna. Verna was a most gracious host, giving us tips about things and checking in to be sure everything was OK. The laundry facilities were great as well. This the perfect house to use as a base for exploring all that Laguna offers as well as just sitting on the balcony enjoying the cool ocean breezes and the marvelous view of the ocean!
Our Laguna Getaway
Just returned from a month long vacation in Laguna Beach. Our stay at Verna's house greatly exceeded our expectations. The house was in perfect condition. The newly renovated bathrooms were terrific and the kitchen was fabulous -well stocked and ready to go. When we arrived wine, cheese,and fresh fruits were waiting for us. What a great surprise after a long flight. Every evening we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the sun setting over Catalina Island. We never tired of spending time on the deck watching the scenery.
Verna was extraordinary. She made sure any questions we had were promptly addressed. She even supplied us with a binder filled with notes and directions for everything in the house
We were so thrilled with our stay, that we have already committed to Verna for an even longer stay for next year. We can't wait to return! If you are interested in staying in Laguna Beach do yourself a favor and contact Verna. This is the house to chose!
Dear Skeila and Peter,
Thank you so much, am so looking forward to having you back at our Catalina Sunset Penthouse!!..you are awesome renters.
Views, Privacy, and a fabulous location!
This home is exactly as it is in the pictures. The views are to-die-for with a long extended balcony, A rarity in the Laguna Beach area. All rooms except for the back entertainment/2nd bedroom have amazing views and nice ocean breezes. The property is well-kept and the owner was quite accommodating, and we are very particular!
The kitchen is very well stocked if you choose to cook and there's plenty of storage throughout the property. The owner will even store your luggage giving you a little more wiggle room if you need it.
There is a short but hilly walk to the free Laguna Beach Trolley which we took advantage of often. There is a quaint neighborhood restaurant down the hill. Victoria Beach is about a 10 minute walk, easy down and challenging but do-able trip up. The Montage is about a 15 minute walk with just a few seconds along the bike path on PCH, the rest sidewalk paths. Just a short fifteen minute drive to Dana Point, Newport Beach, or Corona del Mar.
Uber was an easy option as most rides were just a few dollars into the Village.
We were grateful we had the parking spot as finding a spot can be a challenge during high season. We were also enjoyed having the air conditioning to take advantage of on the days when temps were unusually high.
The full-size washer and dryer were nicer than those we have at home!
In the two months we were there we got a chance to know the very nice neighbors.
We hope to get a chance to visit again soon!
Thank you, Dana. We loved having you visit for two months. We have been very lucky finding people like you to take care of the Penthouse! Hope you will be coming back soon!
Laguna Beach is like a warmer Carmel. Tons of art galleries, museums, great shopping and the best restaurants. Water sports, trips to Catalina, fishing....all with amazing sunsets right from your living room and deck. A 180% view of the ocean. WOW!! Walking distance from the beautiful Montag Resort.
