Bruce took care of every detail in this adorable 1917 home. He kept the decorations simple and in keeping with the older time period. He had plenty of linens, beach equipment, and a well stocked kitchen. We used the front and back porch. I never got in my car once the whole time we were there. We walked everywhere and took the free shuttle bus.
Laguna Beach Cottage
The cottage is very charming and comfortable, and just as in the photos. I think the cottage would best suit two people rather than a family with children. We had our teenage daughter with us and she slept on the little bed in the corner of the living room, which was okay but not ideal. The cottage was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. Our bed was comfortable and there was lots of hot water. It is only a short walk of a few blocks to the beach. I found a great outdoor pool in town and swam everyday, and then walked home. It was several kilometres walk back but I really enjoyed walking in the sunshine. The shopping area was on the walk back so I got to browse, and there are lots of great shops and restaurants in Laguna Beach. The only downside to the cottage is that Bruce (the owner) lived in the attached garage during our stay, just on the other side of a door off the living room. So when we were sitting on the couch having a glass of wine at the end of the day, he could probably hear everything we said. We found that a bit odd and weren't told of the arrangement until we arrived. Bruce himself is a very nice person and a great host. Nothing against him personally - we just didn't expect to have someone right on site with us.
We had a great stay in the Laguna cottage. Its a classic beach house, with a great old Laguna vibe. All the key elements have been nicely modernized, kitchen and bath both have all we needed and look great. The beds are comfortable and everything works well. The location is excellent, quiet but close to beach and town. Bruce is a great host. We hope to visit again!
Attractive space to be in with nice large rooms and comfortable bed. Good location close to beaches and park. Cottage would be really lovely if sanded and painted.
Cottage Comfort: Inviting Home-Away-From-Home in Laguna
We were the first to occupy this lovely house, so close to our favorite cove, with downtown and main beach just blocks away. This home is the perfect location, and a wonderful place for a get-away - no matter how long your stay.
We were delighted to see unique, antique accents matched the images on the listing. It is a quaint and quiet neighborhood, but perfectly situated for our needs and desires.
The owner is very nice, easy to work with, and available if you need anything. You can tell he puts a lot of heart and soul into the decor and maintaining the authenticity of the house and the interior.
I highly recommend this home. We will certainly be back.
