Guestbook comments from the owner

This recently remodeled cottage is just a five minute walk to beautiful Laguna Beach. Everything is updated and all amenities are provided. The owners are even kind enough to provide beach chairs, umbrella, boogie board, and beach towels.

The cottage itself is quaint and relaxing with a beautiful patio area which we used often.

Alison was an excellent hostess and went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible.

I would highly recommend the green cottage (or the yellow cottage) to anyone who is looking for a wonderful place that is immaculately clean, close to shopping, restaurants, beach and everything else that Laguna has to offer.

Perfect cottage in every way!

  • 5 of 5

If you want an incredible, authentic Laguna cottage to enjoy, this is your place. My wife and I spent the month of February here and can tell you, it is the perfect place to stay. First of all the location is incredible. We walked everywhere. Really only needed our car to venture away from Laguna. The walk to the beach is less than 6 minutes.

The same amount of time to walk downtown Laguna Beach. Location, location, location! The layout of our cottage is perfect if you have guests stay or visit you. One end is the Master Bedroom with lovely bathroom and large glass shower. The other bedroom is on the other side of the home, with its own beautiful bathroom. It includes a full-size tub and shower. In between is the fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and very nice size family room. Nice large size flat-screen.

I hate to give this cottage such an incredible review, because it will just make it that more difficult to rent it next time. That is why we have already decided to rent it again for February 2019!

I can't say enough about Alison and her family. They were the best!

Clean, quality, fully stocked with everything in terrific working condition. We travel all over the world and can honestly say, we loved our experience here.

The green house is an outstanding rental with a great location. My wife and I have stayed in it in winter for the past six years and plan to do so again in 2019. It is a perfect retreat from Chicago's winters. The house is located on the edge of downtown, putting the beach, shops, galleries, coffee shops, and restaurants within easy walking distance. The accommodations are terrific. The house is sunny, clean and well-maintained. It is a comfortable place to visit, and Alison is a friendly and responsive hostess. As I said, we've stayed in the house for six straight years and would not consider another place in Laguna.

We have rented both of Alison's cottages the last few summers and have had a great experience every time! She is super easy to work with and both of her cottages are really cute! I would highly recommend her rental properties!

Totally Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Looking from the outside, you would not imagine how spacious this cottage really is! I stayed at the green cottage for about 6 weeks and it only took a day or two for it to feel like a home. The personal touches that Alison has put into the cottages are remarkable. Everyday for the first week, there was something new that I hadn't noticed the day before. Be it a picture on the wall, or the light on the ceiling in the second bedroom, that looked like shark teeth. I can not say enough about what a wonderful host Alison is. Anytime I called her, she would get back to me right away, even while on her vacation. She felt more like a friend, than just someone you were renting from. As I said you would never imagine the space inside. Particularly the main bedroom. The pictures do not do it justice. The high cathedral ceiling, to the patio doors out to the back deck, made it that more awesome! I have always wanted to stay in Laguna Beach and that is exactly what it is. Having access to the beach anytime of the day, not having to drive or park , was priceless! I would highly recommend a stay here and will be back again!

So close to everything ! Even the beach !

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in one of the cottages of Alison was a match made in heaven. The owner, Alison had taken care of everything. Even a good bottle of Californian wine when we arrived. The cottage is the perfect home to be in Laguna. Close to the beach - like 3 minutes walk - close to Wholefoods and Forest Ave which has the best restaurants if you do not feel like cooking. If you do, the cottage has it all to help you cook your favourite meals. Even a BBQ outside on the cozy patio where we have breakfast too. The rooms are very clean and so nicely "beachy" decorated. You know, we are going back within 2 weeks - so we are hooked ! You will be too !

We stayed for a month last year and again this year. The cottage is darling and the location is superb. Just a short walk to beach, great restaurants and Whole Foods. Alison is great. We will be back!
