Great place to spend your summer vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The place is not big, but nice, clean and cozy. Less than 5 min walk to very scenic Table Rock beach, ocean view from a large deck. Jack is a great host, helping his guests with everything. For example, he very promptly replaced a washing machine that failed. I highly recommend Jack's property!

Perfect Location and Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Jack's place for long weekend getaway with my friend and 3 teenage kids.. it was the perfect vacation. Jack was very accommodating with the reservation process. The apartment was perfect, even for 5 people. Kitchen was well stocked and furnishings were very comfortable. Washer and Dryer was a bonus. Outside patio was the best part of it - with nice views to the ocean and setting sun. There were beach towels, chairs and boogie boards available for use. The walk to Pacific Coast Highway (local route 1) was a little hike, but a very nice walk among beautiful overhanging trees and unique houses. I'd stay again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful place to stay in South Laguna

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time on our vacation to California, specifically in south Laguna beach. Jack has a wonderful vrbo property that has it all. We're were very pleased with all that it offered us, and will be booking it again in the future. Beach access is a short walk, and sooo worth it.

Please stay at this wonderful property.

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at this Laguna Beach Cottage. Both times I have been very pleased with the cottage. The studio is quite spacious with a lovely ocean view which was great for watching the sunset. The place was clean, comfortable bed, water stocked in the fridge. The full kitchen was great for making meals in, although the Coyote Grill just down the hill on the PCH is a great place to eat.

On my second stay, the cottage was not yet ready and I had to wait for housekeeping for several hours before I could get in, a very unpleasant and disappointing circumstance after having significant travel delays due to bad weather. I had to change my activity plans at the last minute which was a significant inconvenience- this was my only free day from work during my entire stay. The owner did refund that night though without my requesting this which doesn't give me the time back, but did make up for the inconvenience. .

I highly recommend this cottage for your Laguna Beach getaway.

Great place, awesome view, walking distance to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a couple weeks in May and really enjoyed it. We even had children and it was comfortable and worked out great for us! It felt like we were in Hawaii with the hills, palm trees and the view. The kitchen is nice and upgraded and we loved that we had a washer and dryer and a walk-in closet. You'll love this place!
