Excellent in most respects

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful and adorable cottage walking distance of the beach and lively village of Laguna Beach. The cottage was clean and neat and well-appointed. The welcome basket was generous. It was a lovely spot, and I would definitely return to it, and the deck is a great addition to the space.

Couldn't have been any better!

Adorable and perfect for 2, clean as a whistle, free snacks and a welcome basket of wine. Great bed and pillows. Perfect location for walking. We Ubered and Lyfted from John Wayne for about 35 bucks total. Met a nice woman that was showing at the Festival of Arts and she gave us a free pass. Went to the Pageant, got out late, only late night game in town is Hennessey's on Ocean. Great food and great service. Live music at Tommy Bahama and good drinks at the Skyloft. Rode the open air trolly all the way through Dana Point, shopped, ate and just all around enjoyed this 3 night slip away. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Clean, private and close to town, perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is well cared for, very clean, private and only a couple blocks to downtown. In summer months you will be delighted with the (remote control) air conditioning in the bedroom. All you need with the bonus of a parking space. I will definitely return here.

Car: not necessary

The Mermaid Cottage is located within three blocks of the beach, post office, banks, laundromat, stores and more than thirty restaurants. There are nearby walking trails, beach activites and golf course.

It is an easy walk to the annual festivals, museums and galleries. Although centrally located, it is a quiet retreat from busy village activity.
