About Owner/Property Manager

We are world travelers, we enjoy adventure and the outdoors. Casa Maria is a dream come true.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Woods Cove

My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer. Ruth thank you for being such a wonderful host and always getting back with us in such a timely manner. The place was magical, everything you need is there and then some.

A Perfect Spot!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet getaway close to Laguna Beach, this is your place! The views are especially spectacular at sunrise and sunset (as well as all other times of the day). Even though you can barely make out the Pacific Coast Highway in the distance, you cannot hear any traffic or noise from any direction. It was so dark and silent at night in this seemingly isolated cottage, I was a little spooked the first night - but I quickly got over that! In the description of this property, the owner mentions "incredible grounds" which, although sounds hyperbolic, is actually an understatement. The temperatures at night got quite cool (mid-50s), and there are plenty of extra blankets/throws. I advise closing the drapes on the Pacific side during the day while you are out as it gets quite warm in the sun-drenched main rooms.

There was no real need to contact the owner while I stayed at Casa Maria. I had a little freak-out regarding the wifi password (is "0" a letter or a number kind of thing), and Ruth responded within seconds. I felt that if I really needed something or had a question, she would be quick to respond.

The overwhelmingly positive reviews are accurate: I only booked Casa Maria for three days, and I regret that I hadn't booked for longer

Hope To Return

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Maria. The ocean views are stunning, particularly at sunset, and the quiet property has a lot of character. There are many dining options in Laguna Beach (Broadway was a favorite) but it was always a pleasure just to sit on the deck of the cottage with a glass of wine and admire the view. Owner Ruth was quick to respond to any questions.....hope to be back soon!

Our stay at Casa Maria made us feel like we were at home. Having everything that was needed and being so close to everything made it all so perfect for what we needed.The peace and quite of the early mornings and the dark star filled nights were amazing. The view was absolutely stunning and looked over the big blue ocean.
