  • A Zen like Oasis in beautiful Laguna Beach

    "We have stayed in this beautiful house a couple of times. My two teenagers and myself stayed for two weeks at Easter. We love Laguna Beach and have vacationed here many times. We have always had great accommodation but this is our favorite. First the house, it has an amazing split-level living room and kitchen as a feature with the bedrooms built around it. The kitchen is huge with everything you could want, down to various teas and even Tabasco. You can follow the sun all day from the decking and the garden with its luxurious hammock and gazebo. Sculptures and water features relax you and even a vinyl record player with an eclectic collection of sounds adds to the magic. Second the location. We always have a car but when eating out, strolling or going to the beach, downtown is only a short walk. This is a big plus as parking and traffic downtown can get busy. Set in a small U shaped road with beautiful trees to the front you feel like you’re not in town as it’s so quite. Last by no means least is the genuine care that Marilyn shows to her guests. This year she even asked the kids ages and left Easter Baskets for them and informed me that your “never to old for an Easter basket”. Nothing is too much trouble for Marilyn with emails answered super quick and always super positive. We travel from Europe and have been lucky enough to have stayed in many beautiful parts of the world. But for us this house in Laguna Beach contains magical memories and is our go to place for a wonderful vacation."

  • Great Family House

    "Our family had a great vacation in this house. We had 13 people, of all ages, and everyone was happy. The views of the ocean are amazing and the ability to watch the sunset every night while relaxing on the deck or in the house or at the fire pit was the best part of the house. We walked to the beach everyday and loved not having to drive to get to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants and stores nearby if you need anything. We would definitely rent this house again and Patience was very helpful in every way."

  • A marvelous home with a wonderful views!

    "We spent the month of July in Verna's lovely home while escaping a brutal July in our home town of Tucson. Sitting on the wonderful balcony all along the front of the house having our coffee every morning was great. And watching the fireworks on July 4th from the balcony was spectacular! The house is really comfortable and very well stocked with evreything you might need including various sizes of storage bags! Verna greeted us warmly and had left a bottle of wine and a bowl of fresh vegatables for us. The house is just a short walk from the free Laguna Beach trolly that took us into town to shop, attend art festivals, and enjoy the wonderful Laguna Beach restaurants. And it was a short walk down to the many little hidden coves that dot the coast in Laguna. Verna was a most gracious host, giving us tips about things and checking in to be sure everything was OK. The laundry facilities were great as well. This the perfect house to use as a base for exploring all that Laguna offers as well as just sitting on the balcony enjoying the cool ocean breezes and the marvelous view of the ocean!"

  • A Charming Cottage near a Stunning Cove!

    "We stayed a week in August at Roger and Karen's Shaw's Cove Cottage and truly loved our vacation. From the moment we pulled up we knew that this cottage was loaded with charm. The cottage is an original craftsman type home on a spacious lot with an ocean view from the front porch. the Cottage has a wood foundation and is well furnished throughout. The windows are the original single pane and Roger and Karen have done an amazing job to preserve the look and feel of a California beach cottage. The cottage can be found in the nicest part of Laguna, near Shaw's cove and Crescent bay. This location is among the best in Orange County near the pristine coast line and it turns out that La Brea Ave. is very quiet and peaceful. Our family of 4 had plenty of room at the Cottage; the kids 12 and 14 each had their own bedroom my daughter had 1 of 2 full bathrooms. Roger had all the beach gear for us, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, snorkeling gear etc.. Our family went to the beach every day. Snorkeling at Shaw's cove is excellent with visibility of 10-15 ft and plenty of fish to look at. At low tide we explored the tide pools which were amazing and filled with ocean wildlife. This stretch of coast line from Crescent Bay to Heisler Park is truly amazing as you can see contrasts of colors, the turquoise ocean, blue skies, black rocks that guard the coves, stunning cliffs, golden brown sand and crashing waves, a truly magical place. The beach at Shaw's cove is perfect for families, its a sandy beach and at times has small waves that are fun to body surf. Shaw's cove has a lifeguard there in the summer months who turned out to be a great resource. When our family was not at the beach, we would hop on the Laguna trolley (note, it stops near the cottage for pick up and drop off). The trolley is free and our kids used it to visit downtown, explore 1000 step beach, and or to find the perfect surfing spot. My wife and I used the trolley to shuttle us and our friends to the various restaurants downtown, its truly nice not having to drive in Laguna as parking can be headache. At Roger and Karen's cottage you have a driveway which can accommodate 2 cars. I highly recommend Roger and Karen's Cottage at Shaw's Cove, its a magical home set in best location along the sunny coast line in Laguna Beach. We do plan on renting the cottage in the future."
