Fabulous - You won't regret it!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is wonderful. Very well furnished, very cosy - you feel at home immediately. If you like to cook, the kitchen is well appointed, enough for us to make Christmas dinner and several other meals. The garden area is lush and private, and the rooftop deck - we took our appetizers and drinks up there every night to watch the sunset. Beautiful!

The beach is only 2 blocks away, and if you have a dog, it's dog-friendly all day long in the winter, and after 6:00pm in the summer (and in the early morning). There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, and you can get to the main area of Laguna Beach by way of a tram that comes along every once in a while. Also, there are several parking garages in the downtown area that are convenient.

Plenty to do in the surrounding areas - we used to live nearby so we mostly had fun seeing our old haunts and going to the beach. If you're a foodie, I highly recommend having breakfast at Ramos House Café near the train depot in San Juan Capistrano. There's live music at Trevor's at the Tracks with drinks/food in the afternoon, and this building used to be the depot.

Lots of resorts nearby to get your glitz on, plenty of places to walk or bike ride, loads of shopping.

Book this place!

Quite an interesting place! Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a long weekend in June 2016 for a combined bachelor/bachelorette get together. 2 of us from Austin, 2 from LA, and 1 from NYC. Having a nice/shaded back patio w/grill, rooftop deck with ocean view, and full featured kitchen were GREAT! Everything was very clean, and the owners were very communicative prior to our arrival. The nearby Pacific Marine Mammal Center is a MUST SEE!

I'm giving this property 5 stars because it was exactly what I expected it to be, maybe even a little better. That being said, here are a few bullet points you may want to consider.

1) This place has TONS of decor, trinkets, art, sculptures, etc. Very cool, but maybe not the best if you have some really rambunctious children that insist on playing with balls in the house.

2) The bedroom windows both face the South Coast Highway (1). The rooms both have portable air conditioners, which require one of the windows to be a little open for ventilation. If you are a very light sleeper, beware the sound of passing cars and streetlights will keep you up. There is a white noise machine, but still.

3)You must go up a flight of stairs to enter the property. Also, the walk to the beach (the beach was AWESOME) but the walk to it gets realllly steep. If you are planning on staying with someone that has limited mobility, I would suggest looking elsewhere further south where the beaches aren't below cliffs.

4) The TV's have VERY basic cable (no HGTV =[) and the WiFi can be painfully slow if you want to stream an HD movie or something (averaged <5Mbps).

Other than that, you're good to go. Certainly cheaper than $500/night at a nearby hotel for just 1 room. You will miss it when you have to leave, I know we did.
