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
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.
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.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on our vacation. Vivian and Ray's home has everything you need for your vacation. The view from the deck is gorgeous. The trolley stop is nearby. Gorgeous, spacious kitchen for your cooking needs. Beds were comfortable and the living room/dining room was spacious as well.
Chairs, umbrellas were also there for your beach needs. Would definitely come back again. I didn't get a chance to talk to Ray but Vivian was very friendly and accommodating.
We loved this house. We didn't want to leave. Perfect for couples and families. The house was well stocked close to beaches and trolly perfect and beautiful... I was presently surprised with Vivian and Ray's hospitality and care. We can't wait to visit again! I miss Laguna and this house already!
My husband, myself and one year old son were excited when we booked this “beach house” for three months this winter. We read the great reviews and thought it would be perfect. BOY WERE WE WRONG! This cottage was anything but acceptable and we hope no other renters will have to experience what we did and be scammed out of thousands of dollars the way we were by the owners of this property.
We are not picky people and spend a lot of time traveling and staying in many different rentals. However upon our arrival it was quickly apparent that this was not what we signed up for and in fact we feel very mislead into what we were actually getting. We notified the owner immediately about our concerns and asked for our money back. Although we received some of it, she would not refund us the whole amount and essentially we feel frauded. Below the issues with the rental are outlined.
1) No where on the rental does it mention that the owner lives downstairs. Upon arrival we found out that they do. We found this to be very misleading and uncomfortable. This is not a stand-alone home but rather a top floor of a two-story house. The separation between the two units is minimal with lots of noise travelling back and fourth. For example you can hear their phone ring, footsteps, doors opening and closing.
2) The listing notes that there is opportunity to walk to the beach and town however that is not the case as it is not a safe walk especially with a baby. The rental is located right on the coast highway. You walk down a bunch of steps onto a small driveway and the highway. There is no crosswalk, sidewalk or anyway to leave the property safely especially with a child or baby. There is a small narrow path on the side of the highway with cars flying by. Essentially we would have been stranded at your property, as we do not drive. This was very misleading and inappropriate not to mention the inability to leave the property safely on foot with our baby.
3) The place was incredibly dirty when we arrived. We booked this in November and expected that when we arrived at the end of January the place would be in top shape for us. When we arrived there is an unbelievable amount of dust and dirt everywhere — so much so that my I had a reaction to it and our son starting coughing as soon as he arrived. To expose anyone to this is unacceptable especially a child. The bathroom noted as “new renovated” was a construction zone when my husband arrived.
This was a great stay for our 2016 Spring Break trip. Vivian & Ray were great hosts and were helpful in making our stay very enjoyable. The views of the Pacific Ocean and the sunset from our outside deck were gorgeous. We would highly recommend this house to future renters.
Thank you again for a very memorable trip to Laguna Beach!
This beautiful property is a good location and has all the amenities of home. Vivian and Ray are gracious hosts. The only two cons are the slightly uncomfortable mattresses and pillows and the unfortunate road noise when lounging on the cozy deck with ocean view. We had a fantastic vacation in Cali and enjoyed our Laguna home base.
The highlight of the property is the deck with the view. The kitchen is also very nice. The place comfortably slept our family of 4, which includes 2 small girls. The parking space was a plus. The property had all of the amenities we needed, including beach toys and chairs. I would have rated the property higher if the bedding would have been a little higher end (similar to a nice hotel), and if the decor would have been more neutral. It is decorated with antiques, and a lot of floral art which fits a specific taste. The area is noisy with a lot of traffic, but this seems to be everywhere in Laguna. Vivian was very responsive and accommodating to our requests. There are nice beaches near by.
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.
