About the Property
Cottage; 1 +1; Kitchen; Living Room sleeps 2 minors, CITY PERMIT
(If you wish to have an incredible two bedroom in this same location, please check out #310136 and text me if you're interested. Sorry, but our two bedroom cottage cannot accommodate children under seven. Young families enjoy our one-bedroom cottage. If you want a great family gathering of up to 8 people, reserve both cottages).
Rare and incredible opportunity to vacation on prestigious Cliff Dr. and live like the locals. 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 personal deck or maybe you want to try paddleboarding, paddle yoga at Fishermans Cove or Divers Cove, or surfing, kayaking, rent scuba gear, snorkeling gear, get scuba certified, go out on scuba boat, all available one block away, have a massage, hike the neighborhood trails, explore the tide pools, 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 incredible meals), and more, all just doors away.
Besides 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 kiddies to bed and have after-hour cocktails on our deck, enjoy our 200+ channel TV in the comfortable living room, or relax in our cozy romantic master bedrm. This cottage is a newly furnished in coastal appropriate appointments, with panoramic ocean views on prestigious Cliff Drive. One queen bedroom with hotel linens, full bath, granite kitchen with all the amenities, and beautiful trestle beams and hardwood floors throughout. Grand living room, with trundle twin beds suitable for minors. Master bedroom, living room plus personal deck overlook the ocean. All linens provided. YES, WE HAVE FREE WIFI. We provide beach chairs and beach towels. Coin-operated laundry on premises shared by two others.
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.
WE ARE 1 of 34 LEGALLY PERMITTED VACATION RENTALS BUILDINGS BY THE CITY OF LAGUNA BEACH. WE GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT BE SHUT DOWN PRIOR TO OR DURING YOUR STAY AND FORCED TO FIND A LAST MUNUTE HOTEL. We have been a vacation rental since 2000. Please text owner for availability (818-383-1499). For security purposes we do not keep a public online calendar. We book up early and quickly.

We are not suitable for partying groups. Our mission is to offer a "live like a local" awesome beach vacation while at the same time being located in 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 an ordinary main artery street with stop lights every couple of blocks. There is a garden courtyard buffer between the street and the cottage and the Bedroom and Living Room overlook Cliff Dr and the ocean beyond.
Laguna Beach is consistently among the top 10 beach resorts in the U.S. The Laguna Beach beach-side lifestyle is all around us, not partying groups that are so popular in our neighboring towns, but if you are coming here for a quiet experience our place is not for you. LagunaBeachCharmers cottages are for visitors looking for a vibrant beach "live like a local" with all the excitement and amenities of a bustling, popular, upscale Southern California beach town. At times there will be trucks, trolleys from the free trolley route we are on, occasional construction or barking dogs, or loud motorcycles (whose revved up riding is forbidden in Laguna but they do it anyway), or 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 are 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 beach 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.
Contact / text Gerri for calendar/available dates. Thank you.

About the owner: We (Art and Gerri) have lovingly restored our 1920s era beach cottages, both our one bdrm cottage and our two bdrm cottage. Our two cottages are always a work in progress. 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 Southern California architecture of the past. Gerri is a graduate of UCLA and a former elementary school teacher. For the past 40 years, I have been a real estate broker with my own boutique real estate company and Art is our property manager and manages our investments, as well as working on his hobby, restoring a 1960s vintage cars. Art has worn many hats as he is retired from the LAPD and also a retired General Contractor. Along with our four adult children, three grandsons and our friends, we have enjoyed many days at our beach house and feel very fortunate to have such a special vacation home. For our many guests, new and returning, we are happy to provide a special vacation home away from home. WE MANAGE OUR IWN SCHEDULING FOR SECURITY PURPOSES. Our online calendar may not be up to date.

Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach, CA, USA:
We were fortunate to find a fantastic coastal vacation home location on the renowned California Riviera. We have specactular close in, panoramic ocean views combined with adjacent beach access as well as close walking proximity to the charming Laguna Village. We have traveled to many coastal areas throughout the world including southern Spain, the coastline 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. 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 Cottage:
* We have operated our two vacation rental since 1998. We are one of 34 permitted short-term lodgings in Laguna Beach. Be aware that short term lodgings operating without a permit are being vigorously pursued by the City of Laguna Beach and are not allowed to rent until they go thru the rigorous and restrictive permitting process. With us, your vacation rental is guaranteed to be available when you arrive. Our cottages offer awesome sweeping close-in ocean views as well as a premier location surrounded by private upscale Laguna Beach coastal residences. We are an easy walk past 10 homes to three spectacular sandy cove beaches, as well as a seven block walk to the charming Laguna Village. A short 8-door stroll brings one to Heisler Park, which provides awesome vistas along pathways above the beaches of the Pacific below. Heisler Park takes you to Las Brisas restaurant patio overlooking the Pacific...enjoy yummy chips and appetizers, and, if you so desire, a myriad of enticing margaritas...and then you have just a short walk home! Our cottages are fantastic and convenient in a serene ocean view setting. We are a stones throw to a burger take out, a block to a supermarket, mailbox store, pizza joint, fun, gourmet dinner house, magnificent authentic tacos and Mexican food and other. Located a 2-7 min drive to Crystal Cove State Park, Newport Coast (Mastros, Trader Joes), Newport Beach and Pelican Hill, one can experience many delights of being surrounded by some of the most expenseive real estate in the world. Hotel rooms in nearby resorts range from $500-1000+ per nite, and are one room. 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, not furnished with cast offs and garage sale pick ups common to many vacation rentals. We provide an alternate to dining out each meal by providing upscale granite kitchens and al fresco dining patios.
