About the Property
Apartment, 2 Bedrms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4). CITY PERMIT 2002.03
Sorry, but this 2 bdrm cottage cannot accommodate children under seven. (If you wish to have a smaller cottage or have children under seven, see our incredible one bedroom in our same location, #358, and text me. Young families really enjoy it. Also, enjoy a family gathering of up to 8 people by taking both cottages!)
Rare, incredible opportunity to vacation on prestigious Cliff Dr. and live like the locals in your own home. Drop your shoulders, recharge your batteries, fill your senses and your tummy, all just steps away from sand between your toes. Enjoy our close-in panoramic ocean view covered porch as well as an open deck or maybe you want to try paddleboarding or paddle yoga at Fishermans or Divers Coves, or surfing, kayaking, rent scuba gear, snorkeling gear, get scuba certified, book a scuba boat trip, all one block away, have a massage, hike the neighborhood trails, explore the tide pools, have a Starbucks, go a block to supermarket for adult beverages or healthy indulgences (Husky Boy and Ginas Pizza are across the street for not so healthy; Jan's for super-healthy; Reunion Kitchen and Asada for overall fantastic meals), and more, all just doors away.
Besides fun on our sandy beaches, if you are a small family you can tour Disneyland and Legoland, we are located between the two. Then put the exhausted kids to bed and have after-hour cocktails on our deck or relax in our cozy romantic master bedrm.
Walk one block to the beach and to the entrance of Heisler Park, perched along the waves for a breathtaking short walk to the enchanting Laguna Village with restaurants of every category, high end or taco stand, and local shopkeepers. Free summer daily trolley (July and Aug) otherwise weekend only trolley, stops right across the street.
This restored 1920s beach cottage has been newly appointed with coastal designer furnishings. One queen ocean view bedroom with hotel linens, a second view bedroom with a full bed and a twin bed, full bath, fully equipped granite kitchen with all the amenities, and beautiful trestle beams and hardwood floors throughout. Grand living room (w/40 inch flatscreen and hundreds of cable channels), master bedroom, living room plus deck overlook the ocean. All linens provided for bedroom and bathroom. YES, WE HAVE FREE WIFI. Coin-operated washer dryer shared by two others. Beach chairs, sand toys, beach towels provided.
WE ARE 1 of 34 LEGALLY PERMITTED VACATION RENTAL BUILDINGS BY THE CITY OF LAGUNA BEACH. We have had our two vacation rentals since 2000. We can guarantee we will not be shut down by the city prior to or during your visit and forcing you to check in last minute to a hotel.
Please text owner for availability (818-383-1499).
For security purposes we do not keep a public online calendar. Mostly fill-in dates are available as guests are booking quickly. We have a five night minimum.
We have a strict no smoking policy on the whole property. This includes e-cigarettes, vaping and all other types of smoking. Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets. Our rates are double occupancy. Please check the Rates section for complete details on the rates.

Our cottages are not suitable for partying groups. 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 Coast Hwy. It is not a traditional "highway" but rather 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, in the summer months 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, please note, as is typical of many homes in Laguna Beach, we do not have air conditioning. We have a very mild temperature range but in the summers there will be an occasional heat wave which, of course, no one can predict. We have portable fans and ceiling fans.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Art and Gerri have lovingly restored these 1920s era beach cottages, both our one bdrm cottage and our two bdrm cottage. They are always a work in progress with ongoing new updates and overall maintenance. We love to restore older homes and have done so in our home town of Glendale, CA, as an avocation as well as a business. It is our mission to preserve the architecture of Southern California past. Gerri is a real estate broker with her own boutique Glendale real estate company and Art is our property manager and manages investments. Art has worn many hats as he is retired from the LAPD and also a retired General Contractor. With our four adult children, two grandsons and our friends, we have enjoyed many days and evenings at our beach house and feel very fortunate to have such a special vacation home. We are happy to provide our new guests and well as our many retuning guests a special vacation home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach, CA, USA:
We were fortunate to find a spectacular ocean view vacation home located on the renowned California Riviera. We have among the best combinations: close-in ocean views combined with adjacent beach access as well as "walkability" to the charming Laguna Village. We have traveled to many coastal areas throughout the world including southern Spain, along the coasts of Italy, Sicily, Gibraltar, French Riviera, South American Atlantic, and north Africa, as well as up and down the California Coast, Oregon Coast, East Coast and Mexican Riviera and coasts. Whenever we are home here in our vacation spot of Laguna Beach, we marvel how this spot is one of the most spectacular we have seen in the world, if not THE MOST SPECTACULAR place on earth. Yet, Laguna Beach remains a small beach town...but with sophisticated restaurants and amenities. One can relax in quiet serenity or find stimulating activity and entertainment all minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We have had these two cottages as vacation rentals since 1996. We are one of 34 permitted short term lodgings in Laguna Beach. Laguna is vigorously pursuing all non-permitted short term lodgings, banning them having guests until they go thru a permitting process. With us you're reservation is guaranteed to be there when you arrive. We are not an apartment with low ceilings, cramped spaces, or average decor. Our cottages offer jaw dropping sweeping close-in ocean views as well as a premier location surrounded by private, upscale Laguna Beach coastal residences. This cottage features a covered porch as well as sunny area, with fantastic, sweeping ocean views! We are 8-10 doors to three spectacular sandy cove beaches, as well as a 7 block walk to the charming Village. A short 8-door stroll to Heisler Park provides awesome vistas along pathways threading above the Pacific Ocean beaches. Heisler Park takes you to our quaint Village with shops and restaurants. Our cottages are fantastic and convenient in a serene ocean view setting. Located a 2-7 min drive to Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Coast, Newport Beach and Pelican Hill, one can experience many delights of being surrounded by some of the most expensive real estate in the world. A one room-hotel room in nearby Laguna Beach resorts is very pricy. Our cottages are half those prices and are 3-4 rooms each, like a small house. Combined with nice furnishings appropriate to the cottage style, rather than furnished with cast offs and garage sale pick ups common to many vacation rentals, as well as providing an alternate to dining out each meal by providing upscale granite kitchens and al fresco dining areas, our 1920s built Laguna Beach Charmer offers a fun and exciting experience that prompts many return visits. We are confident once you stay with us you will be back again and again.
