Our cottages are not suitable for partying groups. We may not be suitable for those that have difficulty walking, as we are up one flight of stairs.
Our mission is to offer an awesome beach experience while at the same time being located in activity-rich, walk-friendly north Laguna Beach.
Do not be concerned that the property backs up to the Coast Hwy. It is not a traditional "highway" but is the ICONIC HIGHWAY 1 that weaves up the coast of California on to Canada. In Laguna it is just a main artery street with stop lights every couple of blocks. The kitchen and bath are on that side. The bedrooms, living room and deck overlook Cliff Dr and the ocean beyond.
Laguna Beach is among the top 10 beach resorts in the U.S. The Laguna Beach beach-side experience is all around us, not partying groups that are so prolific in our neighboring towns, but if you are coming here for quiet, our place is not for you. Laguna Beach Charmers cottages are for visitors looking for a vibrant beach experience with all the excitement and amenities of a bustling, popular, upscale Southern California beach town. At times there are trucks, trolleys passing on the free trolley route we are on, occasional construction, barking dogs, or loud motorcycles (whose revved up rides are forbidden in Laguna Beach but they do it anyway), and more, that pass by our cottages and by our immediate neighborhood of $5M+ homes. More than half of our guests return time and again.
Also, while we have great street parking in front of the building for eight cars, on warm weekends in those places fill up fast with beachgoers. Please be patient and a place will open up for you usually after 5 PM until about 10 AM. Weekends are the busiest. Once you are at the cottage, unless you're taking day trips, you will rarely have to move your car as we are a "walkability" neighborhood.
Also, Unlike most homes in Laguna Beach, we are happy to say we have central air conditioning. We have a very mild temperature range but there will be an occasional heat wave which, of course, no one can predict. We also have portable fans and ceiling fans.
