We are absolutely loving staying in your house, thanks so much for renting it to us. The position is absolutely fabulous and the views are to die for, of course. So convenient to everything in town and the layout is fantastic with the 2 large decks and BBQ getting a good workout, as are the stairs down to the beach. Access has been fine with the door and garage codes and the well stocked kitchen, linen and beach equipment is all much appreciated.
It was extremely clean, neat and tidy on our arrival and we have carefully managed to avoid any breakages so far, constant diligence around our 3 YO needed to ensure that! We did unfortunately lose your frisbee into the wild Pacific and it just disappeared in seconds so apologies and we will replace that. Wilson called in while we were in San Diego last weekend and adjusted the settings on the living room TV so all is good now.
Laguna Beach is beautiful and has a really relaxed and casual feel which is very "Australian" to us, plus we love the fact there are no chain restaurants around.
One request we have is if it is possible to get a late checkout on April 30, even if we have to extend our stay and pay an additional fee? This is because our flight home doesn't depart LAX until 10pm and we would prefer to drive straight from here to the airport to minimise travel time for the kids. Allowing a generous 3 hours for the drive, would checkout around 4-5pm on Thu April 30 be OK?
Again, many thanks for your beautiful home.
My husband, myself and friends recently spent one week at Dave Marriner's beautiful beach house. Our visit crossed over both Labor Day weekend and the one that followed. Arrival and check-in was easy...having two parking spaces (one in garage, one outside) is a gift in that part of Laguna and unloading was quick and painless. The decor is 100% Tommy Bahama, with colorful artwork on the walls as well. We did lots of cooking and BBQing...the kitchen was better equipped than ours at home. Comfy living room, huge TV (big bonus for the sports fans in our crew) and of course, the gorgeous deck. We spent many hours sitting outside listening to the waves, dining, relaxing etc. The views are spectacular.
We stayed in the Master Suite which has a huge, very comfortable bed (sheets were fab), small living area, a 2nd amazing deck and nice-sized bathroom. It was also very quiet which allowed for other guests to enjoy the top floor without disturbing us.
The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms on the main level were also a good size, and the washer/dryer were a welcome amenity. Lots of extra linens too, which was a bonus.
There's an outdoor closet next to the private stairs that holds chairs, beach umbrellas and boogie boards, which were a big hit. The beach below the house is just far enough away from the crowds, yet close enough to enjoy a nice walk to downtown and Main Beach. We also rented SUPs for the week from SUP to You...great local company if you enjoy water sports and the owner Steve is awesome.
Our only two challenges were 1) - over the holiday weekend the Unit above us was occupied with a family - noise from the kids running back and forth, dropping things on the floor etc was tough at times. Goes with the territory though...things quieted down once they left. 2) - the cleaning lady arrived a few minutes early on check-out day, and was rather rude to my husband and friend as they were frantically trying to pack everything up. We were running a bit past the 11am check out time, mainly because we wanted to leave the house as clean and orderly as possible. Recommend you be packed and out before 11am to avoid this woman.
Overall we had a wonderful time at the house, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to return one day soon. Highly recommend!! Thanks again Dave!!
