About Vivian Lank and Ray Back
I have lived in Vancouver BC most of our lives where we ran a VRBO rental in the heart of the city since 2008. We have done extensive traveling throughout the world and have always dreamt of owning a home in Laguna Beach.
Vivian Lank and Ray Back purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Vivian Lank and Ray Back chose Woods Cove
I now spend my summers in Vancouver and our Winters at Laguna in a small suite on the propert . Golfing sailing and the famous art community attracts me to Laguna Beach. It is the perfect place.
What makes this Cottage unique
Laguna Beach is hosts the famous Festival of Arts, Pageant of the Masters and the Sawdust Festival. Laguna is a walking town, especially in the summer when traffic and parking can be problematic! In the summer there's a free trolley service to move you all over Laguna which stops 3 houses away from our house, or you can choose to take a 30 min walk all the way to Main Beach downtown Laguna. It may take you a bit longer if you choose to linger through lots of Art galleries and unique shops or stop for a bit at one of the many restaurants on the way. Albertsons and Vons Grocery stores are a 5 min trip on the trolly. This location is half a block walk to the very private and romantic Moss Point Beach. Location really is everything in Laguna and this spot not only allows walking distance to the best spots. Very easy access routes to outside locations like Dana Point Marina, Fashion Island, South Coast Plaza, Disneyland, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, LA... SNA Airport is only 15 minutes away.

We had an amazing time! From the location to the property itself. Great experience!
The location was amazing. The property is right off the highway and very convenient to go to the beach, shopping, etc... Thr cottage is charming and cozy with a view that is out of this world. We felt right at home and could have stayed longer....
Kim and her family were great guests. We are happy they enjoyed our home and would welcome them back anytime.
Awesome location, extremely charming
Great getaway, setup was ideal to our tastes and the kitchen worked perfectly for our cooking needs!! Great access to all of Laguna, but quiet and peaceful at night. View from the deck was wonderful... Thank you, Vivian!!
A breath of fresh air with magnificent views
My boyfriend and I had the pleasure this January of staying at this wonderful home.
My dream came true to really relax and have a cup of coffee looking out at the sunrise and a glass of wine taking in the gorgeous sunset on their expansive deck.
It felt like home upon walking into an open,comfy,shabby chic kind of feeling,with many of Vivian's, the owners,art pieces throughout the house.
Loved the chandliered gourmet kitchen.
A bit hard to navigate the long winding cobblestone stairway to the top for our accommodations,but it was worth it once we got there.
We just really loved the entire laguna beach area and hope to come back soon.
Quite a lovely respite from the cold in New York.
We truly enjoyed the wonderful hospitality of the owners Vivian and Ray.
Thanks for letting us stay in your delightful place!
It was the perfect retreat for our girlfriend getaway. It felt like home. Beautiful yet functional and comfortable. The ambience felt as though we were in a cozy French cottage. From the eclectic mix of antique furnishings to the beautiful artwork reminiscent of Monet and the Impressionists, to the high beamed ceilings with sky lightings , wood floors and wraught iron railings to the claw foot bathtub. Possibly the most comfortable sofa I've ever sat upon. The deceptively quaint kitchen with modern conveniences and state of the art appliances. We felt at home immediately and were reluctant to leave.
If I could make one suggestion I would add a magnifying makeup mirror perhaps at the bathroom window.
Charming beach cottage
We loved our time in Vivian's charming cottage! There were six of us and we never felt crowded as we spent most of time our time on the fabulous deck with the incredible views! My mother and I loved Vivian's decorating and enjoyed coming home each day after roaming the city and relaxing on the beaches. The kids loved that they could grab boogie boards and hop on the trolley to Main Beach. I do wish there were sidewalks outside their home but the walk to the trolley is just three doors down.
Vivian and Ray ~ thank you so much for sharing your beautiful beach cottage with us!
Lovely cottage with a sea view and walking distance from the beach. Nicely decorated and well stocked kitchen with appliances
Wonderful guests to host. Would love to have them back anytime.
Minutes from bus. We are located on the famous Art Walk that happens every 1st Thursday of each month. Enjoy lots of free treats and wine. A must do.
