Fun beach trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home. The neighborhood is quiet and the home is very comfortable. We enjoyed the views on the beautiful deck and the kids loved being in the yard. Although it would have been quite a walk to any of the beaches, it was a very short drive and we were close to downtown and grocery stores too. Laguna is an easy town to navigate and even though parking isn't abundant, we didn't have much trouble. We would definitely rent this home again.

Breathtaking home inside and out.

  • 5 of 5

Everything from spectacular views from deck to luxury design of the home will make you feel like a king during your stay. Everything I needed to feel comfortable during my stay was there, Bbq grill, wifi, big and comfortable rooms, amazing views, nearby beaches, napkins, dishes, blankets, even soap, much much more. The owner was very nice, easy to contact and very generous to anything I needed. Great experience over all. If you need a place in Laguna, this is the place to stay, you wont want to leave.

Nice views

  • 3 of 5

The house was comfortable and had a great deck for our family gathering. It would have been nice to have more comfortable furniture on the deck since there were six of us and only seating for four. Also, there was no furniture on the lower deck and only four chairs at the dining room table. The bedrooms downstairs didn't have night stands or very good lighting for reading. The sink was clogged in downstairs bathroom but we were able to fix it. There were dishes in the dishwasher when we arrived that didn't seem clean so we re washed them and folded laundry left in dryer. The TV was small and had no cable. Everything seemed a little worn around the edges and a little bare bones for what we paid and compared to other houses we have rented for less on other visits. We made do and did enjoy our stay and found the kitchen pretty well stocked. The owner wanted to subtract a 7% fee that he said VRBO charged but I said that their processing fee was 2.5% He later agreed and it was after I had already paid the deposit with my credit card that he said he was going to charge us for that. There was no where in the agreement that he would deduct that fee if we weren't paying by check. That all felt a little uncomfortable and confusing and I thought that charge is a part of doing business, at least that is how it's always been with renting from home owners and how I manage my short term rental.

We will have good memories of our family gathering but will choose another home on our next visit.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that our house was not up to your expectations; We have another 3 seater deck sofa in the garage available for guests on request. The deck has a table which seats 8. There are several folding chairs available for extra seating at inside table. Unless previous guests had removed, all beds have reading lights. The items left in dishwasher and dryer were not acceptable and I have reminded my cleaner of this. The TV is 32 inch with internet TV (Netflix/Amazon & Apple TV etc) as made clear in description. The furniture is mid century modern, made in the 1950's and 60's as made clear, it complements the house design of 1963. It has some minor signs of wear as can be expected from classic furniture. VRBO initially charged 6% for credit cards which was reduced to 2.5% which I agreed to absorb. I am always on hand to rectify any guests concerns or issues and it's a shame this guest did not reach out to me for some of these issues as they could of been taken care of immediately.

Lovely spacious vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to stay in Laguna for our family vacation and picked the perfect house! Although it wasn't right on the beach, but just a short five minutes away, it was worth it! The rooms were nice and spacious, and we used the kitchen for many meals. The deck had an amazing view, and we had breakfast outside almost every morning. The neighborhood was quiet, and we even tried a few trails. The owner was very friendly from the beginning and had many suggestions for places to eat and visit. If we are ever in the area again, this is the place we will stay!

You wont want to leave......

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a quiet clean neighborhood. Felt so much like home we truly hated to leave. Our family spent 7 days at Richards home and made some wonderful memories. If you are like me, picking a place to stay sometimes feels like a gamble of sorts….Richards home proved to be a sure bet for us. Richard answered many questions for us before our trip and made sure we were provided any information we requested. It was very clean, well supplied kitchen, plenty of towels and supplies and a sweet laundry room! Large decks off of each bedroom, family room and dining room. Dining can take place inside or out on the deck…and the Charbroil barbeque was especially nice. We hope to return often!

Beach lover

  • 5 of 5

Our family really loved this house. It was a great combination of mountain vs. beach. The wrap around deck from every bedroom put you right into the canyon, yet within minutes you could be right on the beach. We loved how spacious and wide open the floor plan was. We had room enough for relatives to visit one night for a barbecue. The house was clean and the accommodations, including a washer/dryer were very helpful. We had a very restful week, and we would definitely rent this house again.
