  • Truly a great place! So convenient to food, fun and beach!

    "Such a great experience start to finish! I was in a rush booking a place since my previous housing fell through at the last moment. Michelle quickly saw my request and the narrow timing and called me up. We traded info so that I could get her place booked within the hour. SO GLAD WE DID! The place was exactly as presented here. We were the upper unit, so if you have mobility issues check out one of Michelle's other properties. For us though, it was perfect. Street parking in the area is difficult so the garage was a nice feature. Its snug fit so big vehicle might not fit, but we had friends come for drinks on Friday night and they didn't have trouble finding street parking- so it is do-able. The patio was lovely, under what may be one of the only non-palm trees in Newport Beach. So nice to be out as the sun goes down, with the other neighbors on the street doing the same. While no view... you can honestly walk to the front gate and be at the beach in less than 5 minutes. The house comes complete with everything you would need to make your beach time a blast! Beach chairs, boogie boards, pails, shovels, towels... you name it, its supplied. Even with our busy schedule we found time every day to go down and enjoy the beach. The house its self is also very nice and well equipped. I've stayed in other VRBOs that had basic starter supplies. But Michelle supplied everything but food and beverages! There is a washing/dryer is in the garage, we didn't use it but all the laundry supplies were there as well. We called Rollo when we were finishing our shopping and we met for a walk around the place. He is a great asset for property management. He talked about the place, and the surrounding attractions with some hilarious stories. He made sure we had his number and left saying several times "call if you need anything". Michelle text several times asking if everything was going well and just made me feel that she was invested in us having a great stay. On Saturday, when it was time to go... we went to the beach in the morning and then spent the time dragging our feet because none of us wanted to leave. I know when you leave feedback... there should be something that you could suggest changing...honestly I can't think of a thing! All of us so enjoyed our time there. It is a terrific place, well managed and will be on my return list! Thanks for everything Michelle and Rollo!"

  • 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."
