What makes this house unique

This property is close to everything and best of all it's quiet. You can really enjoy the beauty of nature, lots of trees, home of so many birds of beautiful colors and sounds. Very peaceful environment for reading, meditating, painting, drawing or just relaxing.

If you like a more active life style, this is also the perfect place for walking, running or mountain biking. If you enjoy more the ocean activities it's only a mile away, you don't have to worry about parking, just leave it at the property and walk to the beach.

If you enjoy art you can walk to the village, home of so many galleries and expos. In July and August the Sawdust art festival and The Pageant of the Masters are a world renown attraction and it's happening just down the street.

Beside being a quiet retreat, this property is also centrally located on the coast so it's an easy drive to other Orange county attractions as well as Los Angeles to the north and San Diego to the south.

We hope you'll love it as much as we do.

Great location, Well-thought-out apartment perfect for couple

  • 5 of 5

Olga and Jacques are very nice, and have thoughtfully set up a wonderfully clean and seemingly new apartment. Seems they remodeled/split a ranch home into their house and attached small apartment with separate entrance, and it came out great. Beautifully landscaped property and we enjoyed walks on their nice quiet street that dead-ends into a great Laguna hike. Very convenient to town too. Only suggestion would be some silicone coasters for bedroom nightstands..we were careful but bedroom furniture seems brand new, and mugs could leave rings. Bedroom good size with nice linens, and bath nice and new and had nice hot water. Minimalistic european feel to kitchen/living area but has all you need to cook/grill. We pulled table out to have more room to eat, and then pushed back into laundry machine to have more livIng space. Would stay again. No views from indoors, but back patio nice spit looking at landscaped hill. It is spotlessly clean, and reasonably priced too.

Perfect for 2 people wanting a quiet place and easy access to hiking/biking trail system

  • 5 of 5

The small apartment attached to the main house is very European simple with updated furnishings and clean lines. We enjoyed waking up every morning to the sounds of local birds...we enjoyed the hiking trail to "top of the world" every day. Laguna is a busy, charming artist beach town.

Charming apartment with all the essentials

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a week-long "staycation" in this apartment. It's fairly small, but works great for two people. We were able to prepare breakfasts and lunches pretty easily, and even did some grilling using the (super nice) grill available on the patio. I loved the hippy vibes of Canyon Acres, and that it was a little removed from the chaos and traffic in downtown Laguna. It took us about 20 minutes to walk to Main beach, and about the same amount of time to access all the great trails in Laguna and Aliso Woods.

Surprise feature: the entrance is via the side yard, where the owner has some great landscaping. Even though we accidentally tracked a lot of stray petals into the apartment, I loved opening the door and smelling fresh flowers every morning!

If I could "staycation" here all the time, I would!

Excellent property! Super quiet, nice little apartment and the location could not be beat.

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about Olga and Jacques... Super nice folks - they have their place nicely put together and are as welcoming and accommodating as they could be. Would recommend this property to anyone. Hiking right near by as well.

Laguna is a super cool town with a nice beach and great restaurants both higher end and the more simple fish taco style. Driving up and down the PCH is sweet and tons to see....

Wonderful place for a couple to stay in Laguna!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for five nights. It was a perfect location in Laguna close to the town and the beach. The accommodations were perfect for two. It had everything my wife and I needed. We especially enjoyed how neat and clean everything was. The owners are very kind! Thank you for a great stay!
