One Bedroom Cottage Guest Comments

We had an amazing vacation staying in the one bedroom cottage. Everything was perfect, and as pictured...except the view- no photo could really do the ocean view justice- go and see it yourself, you will not be disappointed! Working with the owners was smooth and easy. They answered everything timely and were so easy to deal with. We will will definitely return and rent again this lovely cottage. We felt like a local and loved the vibe of Laguna.

Can't wait to come back! My husband and I had a fantastic stay at this lovely cottage. The view was amazing and beautiful decor inside made it a very enjoyable way to explore the beaches, restaurants and shopping in Laguna Beach and surrounding towns. The location was perfect - walking distance to everything but a bit removed from all of the hustle and bustle. Gerri was very organized and responsive, making everything very easy to plan. We will definitely be returning!

My favorite place in all Laguna Beach! I've been coming to this property since the late 90's and it's always been such a spectacular place to stay. Cozy, beach-y and inviting - a home away from home - we immediately settle in and enjoy it's many treasures. I've stayed in both the 2 bedroom and the 1 bedroom and they are equally wonderful, yet each with their own cottage charm. It's ideally located; with beautiful beach views, and is walking distance to grocery store, fabulous beaches, and downtown. It's quintessential Laguna Beach and I'd highly recommend this for anyone seeking a fabulous beach town vacation. There truly isn't a better place to stay in all of Laguna!

It was simply PERFECT!! We couldn't find anything better. Just love this cute place. Less then a minute walk to 3 beach access, on the trolley road, one block to grocery store. It's a little condo cottage style, with a large terrace and a lower deck with long chair. The view is also very unique. We are a family of 4 and it was enough space for all of us. Gerry is always a text away and very fast to answer. Thanks a lot and will see you soon.

This was our 2nd time to stay..1st time was in the two-bedroom. In my fiancé's words "this is so cute and charming". The cottage is very comfortable with all the amenities we need. We prefer to dine in and prepare meals at the cottage, having a quiet dinner on the deck with our personal view of the ocean and sunset...priceless! While in town, we applied for our marriage license. We are returning in July and will be married on one of nearby beach coves. We are counting the days to July. Thank you Gerri and Art for providing wonderful accommodations making our vacation getaways so memorable.

Wonderful North Laguna Cottage. You will love this one bedroom cottage with ocean views! I made my 3rd visit this past summer and once again enjoyed the upscale neighborhood, great walking paths, beach coves within easy walk, free trolley service downtown and of course the cozy cottage itself. The outdoor patio is like having an additional room - you'll want to eat every meal outside looking at the ocean and watching paddle boarders go by!

— EFB, Oct 20, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at this cozy 1 bedroom cottage. Morning coffee on the front deck while gazing at the ocean, watching joggers and dog walkers, in this quiet upscale neighborhood...such a beautiful way to start the day! We walked to one of the nearby cove beaches with a couple beach chairs and umbrella and set up for a lovely afternoon. All the beach gear you need is available to borrow. The Laguna Beach Trolley to the Village was running during the weekend of our stay. The Laguna Beach App has a trolley tracker which showed us when the trolley was on its way to the stop, just a couple blocks away. Walking to Laguna Village from the cottage is a quick 15-20 minutes. We love Laguna Village for its good restaurants, interesting shops, and most of all - the friendliest people! Most of the people we met and visited with are locals and they make the visitors feel very welcome. Our favorite restaurants are: Nick’s for the vibe, great food, and friendly bartenders. The Lumberyard for the ambiance, TVs for sports watching, great food and A/C for the occasional very hot summer day. The Deck for its relaxed outdoor location on the beach, off Sleepy Hollow. Marine Room Tavern for its friendly party atmosphere, live music-great rock ‘n roll band there in the early evening on Sundays. We hadn’t danced so much in years… The cottage itself is wonderful! The bed is very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. It’s really the best vacation rental in the best spot and Gerri is very easy to work with. We cannot wait to return!

— Cris & Jim, Oct 3, 2015

Had a wonderful stay for the 4th time in this lovely one bedroom cottage. Amazing views, great convenient location, just steps to the beach or the summer trolley pick up and grocery store and Satrbucks. Who could ask for more! I have spent several birthdays in this cottage and just keep coming back.

— Sandra A, Aug 13, 2015

We stayed for two great nights at this cottage in Laguna. We loved Laguna and this place was a great part of it. Highlights: Great view Close to the beach Nice places to walk (locals out every day) Away from the main town - free bus available What more could you ask for? This place is very well done; new appliances, comfortable furniture, deck for lounging/grilling and a very short walk to the beach.

— Nobie, June 23, 2014

We are repeat guests who wait all year to return to this adorable cottage, our home away from home. This is truly a well thought out vacation rental. The kitchen is big enough to cook a meal in if you for some reason want to forgo the awesome restaurants to be found within a five mile radius. You'll spend all sorts of time on the deck, watching dolphins, seals, and even whales frolick in the kelp beds offshore. The location is great: half mile walk along beautiful Heisler Park down to Main Beach, and just at the point where PARKING IS FREE. The absolute best thing is waking up to see the ocean from your bed! All you need to bring is your bathing suit and suntan lotion!

— Keek, June 4, 2014

We loved our stay at the Laguna Beach Charmers. The photos really don't show how completely adorable this property is. We were so impressed, thoughtful details, it was so relaxing. Lots of room for our family of three.

— Tennismom, June 4, 2014

My husband and I stayed at the cottage in mid June. Ever since returning home, we have been thinking back to what a great vacation we had in Laguna Beach. The cottage is perfect, very clean, comfortable, and just as described. The photos are accurate – and it is even more charming in person. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, away from the tourist crowds, but close enough to walk to town for dinner and browsing the shops. The walk through Heisler Park is beautiful with beach and ocean views the entire way. We loved relaxing on the cottage deck and gazing out to the ocean. It is a very short walk to beautiful cove beaches. The cottage has all the beach gear you could possibly want. At night, with the windows open, you can smell the sea air and hear the waves crashing ashore. We slept so well there – the bed is very comfortable. We found a few “favorite” restaurants in town, that we highly recommend. For great food, friendly people, and lively bar: House of Big Fish & Ice Cold Beer and Nick’s. Also, the Lumberyard is a great place for a quiet, romantic dinner. Gerri is easy to work with and the reservation process through arrival to the cottage went smoothly. I would recommend it to couples who want to relax, unwind, and enjoy the outdoors. We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible!

— Cris & Jim

As a going away to college celebration my husband and I took my daughter to Laguna for a long holiday weekend. We had the perfect place - nice and high on the hill so we could see the ocean, we could people watch from our balcony, and best of all - the fireworks! They were just around the bend from the rental unit and from our balcony we had a prefect view in a cozy and intimate setting. It was one of the best we have had! We love Laguna and have rented the smaller unit in this complex in the past. Owner is extremely accommodating and gracious. Very easy to work with and everything is in order when you arrive. The unit was clean and everything was just the way you would want it. We will be back!!!

— Sandra A

This rental was by far my favorite ever!! In fact, we will go back year after year after year!!!~ The next best thing to owning this charming and perfect cottage is to rent it and pretend it's our very own vacation cottage!! :)

— Tami

Spent my 50th birthday here for the first time. Think I will have to make this an annual event! Not only did my girlfriends love the view but when my husband joined me- he was thrilled with the proximity to the coves for spear fishing. I enjoyed the fresh fish he caught every day. The place was so cute and comfortable. We saw a pod of dolphins from the deck that numbered close to 100 swimming by at sunset. It was a magical time and the owners were so easy to work with. Enjoyed the experience and it met my expectations over 100%. Probably shouldn't let others know because it might be difficult for me to book next time but it made this trip so special.

— Thanks! Ken & Suzanne

What a pleasant experience, staying in a small piece of paradise in laguna. Close to everything, Cottage stocked with everything, great experience. Our 4th laguna rental in 4 yrs and the first one we will absolutely visit again.

— Oz

What can be said about the Laguna spot? It was heaven! So much larger than it looks in pictures (for a change) and we loved all the nooks and crannies and opening windows and outlets and funky aesthetic (I mean that in a good way). It was so nice to be in a neighborhood! What a sought after spot that is to go to the beach. We could not believe how beautiful heisler park is, either. And your place is so well-equipped. We appreciated having foil, salt and pepper, three hair dryers :), and just the loveliness of that airy bedroom. Thank you!!!

— Martha & Jim

John and I had a wonderful time at your perfect Laguna Beach Cottage. It was much bigger than we had anticipated; the internet photos don't do it justice. Also the view from inside the cottage and from the two decks outside was incredible; you can see up and down the coast for a hundred miles! We were completely and pleasantly surprised. We cooked "at home" most nights, either inside or on the barbecue. The small kitchen was so well stocked; it was more fun to eat at home than to go out. We are relaxed and refreshed after our week at Cottage C.

— John and Betty, La Quinta.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Laguna. The cottage is absolutely a perfect retreat and your attention to detail certainly was appreciated. While Cottage "C" looked "too good to be true" on the Internet, our skepticism vanished the moment we opened the door. Thank you again, we will be back.

— Cleveland, Phoenix

We're back! After our wedding here one year ago, we wanted to come back for our first year anniversary. This is a lovely cottage with a wonderful deck to relax the day away. Next year we will be bringing a third person with us-our daughter J. Thanks for your hospitality-we love Laguna Beach, it's now our second home!

— San Francisco, CA

What a wonderful slice of heaven you have here. We had everything that we needed and then some. The view is breathtaking and your decorator's touch has made our stay much nicer than we imagined. We will return next year but I think we might need the whole place (big family). Mark Twain once said "Believe half of what you see and none of what you read". Your cottage is definitely an exception to this rule. We will recommend to all our friends.

— Atascocita, TX

I was browsing my favorites and came across your beautiful home in Laguna Beach, California. We spent the first 4 days of the millenium in your incredible getaway. I'm still paying for that excursion, but I will always remember my e-mails to your son, Chris, who was my first contact on the internet, and how, for once, the reality was much better than the advertisement. Thank you, again, for the amazing memory, and I hope you give this rental to many more, searching for paradise online.

— Tulsa, OK

You have made the perfect holiday dream a reality. During the cold English nights when the rain beats hard and the wind howls, we will warm ourselves with the memories of our peaceful time here. We'll be back. Thank you.

— Claire and Phillip, England

This is truly an enchanted cottage! This is our 2nd visit in 3 years and we have wonderful memories of this lovely house (and Unit A-2 bdrm 3 years ago). Thank you for sharing this with us as well as others from all over the world. Hope see you again with our children and grandchildren

— Riverside, CA

We took our chances and rented what sounded like our perfect beach cottage via the Internet. It was everything you advertised and more. Thank you for all of the extra amenities which really made us feel at home here.

— Danville, CA

I visited last year and stayed two nights in Cottage A, 2 bdrm. I was so impressed that I promised myself I would come back here. This time I had the good fortune to be able to stay for five nights in Cottage C, one bdrm. As expected I had an equally wonderful time. The views are stunning and the cottage has an idyllic individualism that inspires a sense of peace and belonging. The ambiance is created by the added provided little luxuries that make it feel truly like a home. Here you can escape to a luxury that make you fall in love with Laguna and its unique charm. The warmth and professionalism of Gerri endorses its charm. I know I will be back.

— York, England

My husband and I met when we were both living in Laguna nearly 15 years ago. Laguna has always retained for me a magical feeling, and although we've made many return trips to California since we relocated in 1992, we've not been back to my "spiritual home". We have enjoyed ten glorious days here at this idyllic cottage and I feel so much at home in that I'm only surprised my family pictures aren't tucked in the bookshelves!! We've loved watching the blue skies through bedroom windows, enjoying lunch and sunsets on the patio, curling up with a book on the couch. Gerri, Art, we'll be back-hopefully on a regular basis!

— East Hampton, NY

Cottage C is the quintessential bungalow. From the skinny wooden floors to the vibrant pictures on walls-this cottage is great! The view is wonderful inside the cottage and outside the deck. Sitting outside with a glass of wine after a day of exploring the surrounding area truly is a treat. Most important, your place is clean, clean, clean. I really appreciated the designer linens and the new throw rugs throughout the house. Your house really made our vacation wonderful

— Londonderry, NH

We had a wonderful time here and great finish for our 3 week honeymoon trip through the Western USA. This is a perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the nature combined with great art all around. We hope that we can come back sometime.

— Austria

My son, grandson and I had a wonderful reunion here. The weather was perfect, the cottage delightful and Laguna Beach as always a unique place.

— Fairport, NY

I had a great time with my dad and grandma and I hope I can come to this house again next year and for the rest of my life

— San Diego

What a lovely treat to have spent the past 3 days here with my son.. The cottage is so comfortable and in a perfect location. We are already discussing our return visit- hopefully, later this year. We can now return to work and school a lot more relaxed.

— Valencia, CA

Just a beautiful little cottage in an idyllic setting-so lovely and comfortable. Our daughter enjoyed it immensely, while joining us in Cottage A next door. Thank you for providing the essentials and the luxuries right down to an enjoyable bottle of wine. The beach and sunsets were glorious and we leave with rich memories of another Christmas and New Years spent in an exotic location.

— Atlanta, San Francisco, New Zealand

Everything for our wedding was perfect yesterday. We're so glad we stayed here-the places are adorable and the patio so great for barbecuing and entertaining. We'll have many anniversaries and hope to come back here for most! We love Laguna Beach and your places made our visit memorable. Thank you.

— San Francisco, CA

This was really a wonderful place. We enjoyed very much your cottage. We are leaving for Japan today. Thank you very much for giving us a clean and beautiful place and Laguna. We sure will come back again.

— Tokyo, Japan

After the past four days, we are so pleased that we found your cottage on the Internet. We have enjoyed the location, the food, the view and your lovely cottage. I will be sure to speak the world of your place and your home here in California.

— Boston, MA

We are leaving for home this morning and are both sad and glad. Sad to be leaving this wonderful cottage and glad to have been here for the past two and a half weeks. It is so comfortable here that we have felt right at home, away from home. The views, the places to walk, the beaches, the downtown area and Orange County in general are great! We'll be back.

— San Mateo, CA

I found your place on the Internet as I was searching for the perfect weekend getaway for my boyfriend and me. Once I saw the pictures of this place, I knew my boyfriend would love the surprise for his birthday. It was hard to keep this great place a secret until we pulled up to it Friday night. We were both pleasantly surprised when we entered Cottage C. The view along with all the small details made us both feel comfortable and relaxed. The weather was amazing and downtown Laguna Beach was great. I know we will be back again!

— North Hills, CA

We were so pleased to have stayed in your cottage for a wonderful and romantic weekend. The location, the weather and the beach have made this stay magical. Neither one of us want to leave-we look forward to returning.

— Huntington Beach, CA

This place was all it was as advertised in the ad on the Internet and fitted our family's needs perfectly. We hope to return in the near future.

— Anchorage Alaska

Saturday I married the man of my dreams! We brought another couple on our CA vacation and stayed in the wonderful cottage you have here. We are from Iowa and two of us had never been to the West Coast so needless to say it was a Wonderful Experience. This beats a hotel anytime! I had my dream wedding out on the sandy beach we can't wait to come back and stay in the awesome house.

— Ankeny, Iowa

The time here has been perfect and we will be returning We'll make sure to arrange our vacation around your availability.

— Redwood City, CA

The ocean was a bit cold but I just jumped right in we are from Canade, eh, it was very peaceful and relaxing the walks to town were awesome.

— Grande Cache, Alberta & Saskatoon, Saskatchew, Canada

The time for us here has been a spiritual retreat. The peacefulness and beauty of being here has been so refreshing; your cottage is so cute and cozy.

Everyone should have an opportunity to enjoy the Laguna experience in this delightful cottage.

— Chicago, IL

What a delightful cottage! From day one I felt like it was my own house and I feel very sad to leave. Arriving with not much more than a toothbrush, there was everything her that I could possibly need-you have really thought of it all! It truly was a wonderful introduction to life in Laguna Beach. Thanks You.

— Syndey, Australia

Two Bedroom Cottage Guest Comments

My husband and I stayed in the BeachCharmers Cottage A for 10 days in April and loved it! The cottage is beautiful, romantic and has all you can ever need (we particularly appreciated the binoculars). The location is very handy, a walking distance to a good supermarket, several restaurants and even the town center (there’s also a trolley stop nearby). Lovely hiking trails are also just minutes away. The location on the Coastal Highway means you get some traffic noise but we, as city people, got used to that really quickly. And you just forget everything else when you sit on the porch which was perfect, partly covered and with lovely lazy chairs to sit on and take in the views. We saw both whales and dolphins on several mornings. I’m not usually one to sit down and relax but this porch just was so inviting. And there was even enough room for us to practice with our local yoga teacher. We hope to be back.

— Kirsti, April 6, 2017

What a wonderful Laguna cottage! It feels like home. My wife, 2 daughters, and I have stayed at this property for the past 7 years. Gerri and Art are incredible hosts and they go above and beyond to make our stay a wonderful experience. The cottage is located in a great area of North Laguna with a very short walk to wonderful beach coves and a short drive (few blocks) to restaurants and grocery stores. There's even a free trolley that will take you up and down the PCH in the summer. The ambiance and view from the balcony is incredible. While at the cottage we spend most of our time, and eat most of our meals, outside on the balcony. The cottage is always clean, bright, and well-appointed with anything you will need during your stay. One of the best things is the outdoor shower where you can rinse the sand off of yourselves and the kiddos after a day at the beach before heading upstairs to the cottage. It's also a good place to "home base" from if you plan to do other things during your stay. We take a day trip to Disneyland every year and also visit friends in Long Beach. I can''t say enough good things about this place. There's a reason why we keep coming back year after year.

— Kevin, Aug 11, 2016

The PERFECT beach cottage! I have been visiting Laguna since I was a kid and now I bring my own family there every year. We have stayed in several beach rentals and this is definitely the best one we have stayed at. Location is perfect; steps to the beach, one block from grocery store, and great burger spot right across the street! The cottage is clean, bright, perfectly stocked and well taken care of. The owner was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We have already booked for next year and I think our search for the perfect beach rental is over!

— Courtney, June 13, 2016

Classic coastal cottage. This is a wonderful place for a quiet coastal get away. It is very well-stocked and well taken care of. The owners were very helpful and communication was good. They views from the deck are spectacular, hey great spot for breakfast or lunch. Parking was fine and it's a short walk to three fabulous beaches, even more if you walk a little farther. Good walking distance to town for dinner but if you want to write home, there is a trolley that drops you close to the front door. You can find Beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. In the laundry room for your trips to the beach. Highly recommended. We had a fabulous time.

— Donna K, April 18, 2016

Where is the "10" star button? Upon entering this amazing bungalow we were delighted. The view is expansive and so close to the ocean! Amazing sunsets too. Laguna trolly stops just down the street from the condo, less than a football field away. Its free on weekends in the fall/winter - so really no need for a car. The condo was clean, with a large living room and the beds so comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, even during the Thanksgiving holiday we had everything we needed to prep our food. Best part of all is the deck, partially covered was great especially when it rained. We will not hesitate to come back and enjoy this outstanding spot, we were lucky in choosing this listing for our holiday in Laguna. Thanks Gerri!

— Alison S, Nov 30, 2015

Hi Gerri. we are now back in the UK. We wanted to thank you for a fabulous stay. We loved your place, its beautiful location and a gorgeous cottage. We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the views and having cosy candlelit dinners. You have clearly put a lot of effort in to the place and extras such as great coffee, candles, blankets which was really appreciated. And thank you again for letting us stay a little longer it made our last day as good as possible. When we left my daughters said; one day we will bring our children and show them this little gem :) My oldest added, even better one day I will buy this and this can be our summerhouse... good to have dreams... Thanks again The Hobbis's

— Helle H, Aug 17, 2015

Gerri, We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your 2-bedroom cottage. It was very warm and cozy, not to mention the location and amazing views from the deck. We had a great vacation and will be back to Laguna many times. The location on Cliff Drive is excellent. We like to take walks together and from the cottage we could watch the sunset from a different beach each evening. We have visited several communities along the So. California coast, and none of them compares to the awesome beauty of the beaches in Laguna. Our first night was very special as we were engaged in Fisherman's Cove, just a few steps from your cottage. The ambience and charm of the cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway. We plan to be back no later than Summer 2016 and will be looking at your calendar for availability. Thanks for everything.

— Scott S, Apr 21, 2015

Love this beach! Gerri, I just wanted to thank you for the fantastic week we were able to spend in your lovely cottage! It was so wonderful to be able to park the car and take it all in. My family loved walking to different beaches and really appreciated the umbrella, beach chairs and especially the boogie boards that you provided. The view from the bedrooms was amazing and my husband and I were thrilled that we could keep the windows and doors open to the breeze. I must say that the memory foam mattress topper was a godsend. I recently seriously injured both of my knees and I think that this was the first time I was able to sleep without a pillow between my knees in a month. I'm buying one of these things!. I have to say that our favorite thing about your cottage was the deck. Sunshine with morning coffee, evening cocktails watching the sunset, and nighttime by candle light. It couldn't have been more perfect! Thank you again.

— Bec, Apr 6, 2015

Hi Gerri, We just got back from our week in Laguna on Cliff Drive. It was indeed heavenly as we suspected. What an incredible place, if you looked up “quintessential beach cottage” in the dictionary… Anyways, just wanted to let you know how much we loved everything and are definitely planning to come back next year for even longer. I’ll make sure and book early. Now we’re just trying to shake off the back from vacation blues (sigh). Thanks again for your lovely little house! Cynthia

— Cyn, July 20, 2015

Had a blast in Laguna Beach! When we arrived at your cottage where we stayed for my nephew's senior recital at Chapman, it was over 100 degrees and smoky from the Carlsbad fires. I must say it was frightening dodging smoke plumes in order to land at Palomar Airport. The air cleared remarkably fast with the marine layer that arrived on the coast on the second day. Like the mountains I suppose, if you don't like the weather on the coast, wait 10 minutes... My sister, the mother of the trumpet playing graduate from Chapman, works for a billionaire who has a part time home in Montage down the coast from your cottages. Although the billionaire's house is an architectural masterpiece, full of almost priceless Asian art, has access to a luxury spa and catering, I'd rather stay in your beach cottages! It's much more fun to be close enough to town to walk, and to watch the street scene from your deck. We walked to the Laguna Beach Art Gallery, the beach across the street where we met lots of friendly locals, and to a cornucopia of fabulous restaurants. My sister only stayed with her boss at the Montage so as not to hurt her feelings, she wanted to be with us where the action was!

— Sara, June 3, 2015

This property does indeed ooze charm, and its location couldn't be better. My husband, 16-year-old daughter and I had a glorious week at the neighboring beaches and tidepools, vast selection of restaurants, extensive shopping, the marine mammal rehab center, Crystal Cove State Park, and two day trips to LA to watch the taping of a TV show pilot, see a comedy troupe, visit the La Brea Tarpits and shop Melrose Avenue. The cottage itself is extremely cute, clean and comfortable, with ocean views from the bedrooms and living room as well as a nice deck. There was a great selection of beach books, board games, and even boogie boards and beach chairs. We spent a couple evenings just hanging out watching movies on the large flatscreen tv and lounging on the home's four couches. We also were pleased that the house was only 30 minutes from John Wayne Airport yet so close to several gorgeous cliff-enclosed coves, lovely parks, shopping and the restaurants. We've stayed in many VRBOs everywhere from Seattle to Boston, and this definitely ranks as one of our favorites. Can't wait to return.

— Cind, May 2, 2012

Loved the cottage, could not have been more happier, loved it the second I stepped through the pre-open sliding glass doors and heard subtle jazz music playing. It was real welcoming. The deck/patio view along w/ the lounge chairs and fire-pit were great in the evenings. The location couldn't have been better, and the closest beach access was probably one of the most vacant and beautiful coves available. Plenty of tide-pools for kids. I definitely plan on staying here again.

— Napoli Martin

This place is magical...from the variety of beaches steps away to the amazing energy of the whole town itself and the spectacular view from the balcony, the overall feel of this place is just perfect. We've been twice and would return. We love Laguna and staying anywhere else there would not feel like "home".

— Arizona Escapees

We just left! I have not seen my husband, Rick, relax like this in a long, long time! What a picture perfect weekend!

— Judy and Rick

We had an amazing time in Laguna Beach. It was very difficult to leave. We cannot wait to return! Your place is magical in every way, the location and the whole feel of it. The kids LOVED the beaches as they are far more interesting w/ the rock pools and my son fished every day at fisherman’s cove. I ran every morning on the path, it was heaven. We are already talking about renting again and perhaps with another family in the other unit!

— Lynn and John, Phoenix

Got here late last night. Your place is wonderful! Just what the doctor ordered. Thanks so much. You've done an amazing job with all the modern updates and conveniences and still keeping the charm. I hope I can make this an annual 2 week time slot. The cottage was awesome.

— Carole

Dear Gerri, We just drove away from your lovely cottage. We had a wonderful time and made fun family memories!! The whole place was larger than we expected and the outdoor decks were especially enjoyable. Family and friends came by to visit and it was a perfect place for hosting our visitors. What a perfect location and view! We look forward to coming back again!

— Love, The Murrays

Amazing vacation at your beautiful sad to have left..we hope to visit your place again, thanks for the perfect vacation.

— Paula and Gene, Burbank CA

Just wanted to let you know, we had a wonderful trip to Laguna Beach. We couldn't believe how nice the apartment at 777 Cliff Drive was. Everything we needed was right there waiting for us. The apartment was immaculate and so much fun to occupy. Back here in dreary Massachusetts it's rainy and miserable, what a contrast. Don't be surprised if we come back next spring.

— Bill, MA

We wanted to say thank you very much for the beautiful week we had at your cottage. The views are spectacular and the cottage was very well equipped. We had a very relaxing time. Steve and Ellen Indianapolis, IN

We stayed at your cottage last week and it was fantastic. The pictures on the internet site doesnt do it justice. I can't tell you what a magical time we had, my soul needed this so much. My boyfriend and I reconnected and we just had a wonderful, wonderful time. Just wanted to let you know! Thanks again for providing such a charming place to lay your head and spirit.

— Peace & Light,

— Talya, San Ramon CA

Thank you for a wonderful spot to stay in! We absolutely loved it there. The location and charm were perfect! I was the right place to stay for a beautiful warm weekend. My compliments to you on a great hideaway!

— Brandon, Salt Lake City, UT

That's it. I'm not leaving, ever! I'll just curl up on the couch outside, you'll never know I'm here. I'm quiet, low maintenance and like the many beautiful hummingbirds that continually entertained, I eat very little…Will you adopt me, please? This place is magic and I have fallen under its spell.

— Portland, Or

This place is "charming" and brought out the best between my husband and me. We look forward to coming again.

— Vasquez

Charming, cozy and so roomy. I was enchanted when I first walked in. The Internet pictures cannot give the real sense of spaciousness and charm you have here. Thanks for the special touches both inside and out.

— Glendale, Ca

The cottage is charming in every detail and the view from your "tree house" deck is spectacular. We left feeling relaxed, renewed and anxious to return.

— Minneapolis, MN

Amazing. Relaxing. Inspiring. Peaceful. Intimate. Refreshing. Alive. Tranquil. Home. Perfect.

— Portland,OR and Los Angeles

Relaxing. Entertaining. Adventurous. Fresh. Exciting. This vacation was truly one of the greatest.

I've been coming to Laguna for the last 30 years and this is one of the most memorable times I've had. We never bothered to go out to eat…the kitchen and the setting was too special to waste time away.

Had to E-mail you in order to say how much we loved our Laguna Charmer "A", (so aptly named).It was wonderful to relax in your spacious Californian beach sanctuary! We are already missing the super view from the large deck, the beautiful (book filled) lounge, sweet cozy bedrooms, in fact the whole character and charm of this perfect retreat (adored the humming birds!). We thoroughly enjoyed the coves, the Heisler Park walk to Main Beach, the spectacular view from the top of Park Avenue (Aliso Country Park), not to mention the great restaurants. Hope to be back. Thanks so much.

— P.S. We flew the flag on 9.11 from the deck, in honour of your countrymen and ours, who lost their lives on that horrendous day.

The last time we were here we stayed at the Ritz Carlton. I can honestly say we've enjoyed this more. Your home is warm, relaxing and so well thought out. What a joy to come back to each evening. After five glorious days, we made a decision to more here in the next few years (I'd like to move today if we could)

We enjoyed our visit so much. Laguna is such a peaceful place. Your home is so warm and comfortable. Our favorite place is the awesome deck. We loved sitting out in the morning playing scrabble and watching the fog burn off. We will be back next year.

Wow! This place is truly magical. We were able to have the kind of relaxed family time that is so hard to come by, and we have you guys and your beautiful bungalow to thank. If anything, the "charmer" itself is better than advertised. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

To walk on the beach every morning, golf, and shop every afternoon, and enjoy margaritas every evening on the deck over looking the ocean was most special. Your cottage is delightfully well provisioned. Your care and thought in furnishing and appointing the amenities are evident and very much appreciated. Everything has been provided for our needs and comfort. It has been a month we will not soon forget. Hopefully we will find an opportunity to return. Don't let anyone tell you that Northern Californians don't love the Southland.

I can't tell you how much we enjoyed our stay here. This is the first time that we rented a condo (we usually stay in hotels) and were surprised at the way you furnished and filled the cottage to meet all our needs. . . Even the kitchen worked fine and Dick loved the grill on the deck. Norm timed it perfectly to prune and clear the enclosed garden so we could also enjoy all the plants and statuary that you have there. We lived on the deck - even when it was cold. You are truly a pro. Thanks for this opportunity to enjoy your cottage and, for a short time, be a resident of lovely Laguna Beach.

No exaggeration that your place is spectacular! I have been lucky enough to stay in many beautiful places in California but your place is so warm, personal and welcoming. Here is another thing you were right about, we just did not want to leave-what Heaven. We hope to be back soon.

Everything you described was true-we had a wonderful time! The view was spectacular. Pictures could never do this place and area justice! Felt just like home....and wish it was.

Laguna has always been a place for dreaming. No where else can it be sunny, warm, breezy and cool-all ingredients to harbor dreams. We will be back to enjoy a lifetime of dreams, hopes and sunsets.

What a great spot you have here. We always love Laguna Beach, but your place has made it more special this time. Its's unusual for a place this old to be spotlessly clean, and it added to our enjoyment. Keep that cleaning dynamo. The well-appointed kitchen and the spaciousness-we appreciated that too. We'll be back.

This was the perfect ending for our honeymoon. This place was perfect for relaxing and we loved the beaches.

We have just spent 5 wonderful days celebrating Judy's 50th birthday. Your home and the surrondings are all so inviting. Our visiting friends and family could not believe how beautiful an area could be. The weather and the beaches were perfect. Our warment thanks.

I grew up in Laguna Beach so I feel extremely fortunate. I've been going to Divers' Cove for 47 years! North Laguna is my childhood and full of wonderful memories. We felt truly at home. This house has so much charm and personality. Thank you for making this home available to us to feel so at home. The mornings are the best!! The sunsets from the deck or Divers' Cove on Heisler Park are not to be missed.

Our trip turned out as wonderful as we hoped that it would. Our accomodations were great, the weather was fabulous and Laguna Beach....only God could create something so spectacular. We will be back, in fact, we love it so much we'd like to retire here. By the way, 3 sunsets that words don't describe.

— San Francisco, CA

The rental was perfect-loved sitting out on the deck at sunrise and sunset, enjoying the warm weather and view. I will recommend this place to friends. I think they would enjoy it as much as I did. Thanks for making it all possible.

— Carmel, CA

We've been here for 5 days and it isn't enough. The weather has been perfect. Your house is vey comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed all the decorative items and the wonderful selection of books-we added a couple- and games. Nothing better than morning coffee on the porch.

— Wilmot, NH

Delightfully charming! From the first moment I was in love with your beautiful cottage. So comfy and warm.

I really appreciated the loving care you lavished upon this cottage and its contents. The thoughtufulness with which you surrounded us in made us feel completely at home. This has been the best experience because of that.

This is a gorgeous cottage in a beaurtiful and convenient location. Another fabulous Christmas and New Years will be added to our memories of bets experiences. Our freinds visting from near and far also loved this location and amenities. Your attention to detail with all the comforts of home were greatly appreciated. Thw weather was fantastic and the scenery of beach, sea and sunsets were just incredible. We love this area so much that we hope to rent an apartment long term for our USA visits.

What an honor to the history of Laguna Beach that you maintain these cottages and make them home to many who like to re-live some of the old! It quickly became home to us-upon awakening greeted by the birds--while "preening" and making breakfast seranaded by a person at the bustop-in Spanish- who was, like the birds, totally unaware of the pleasure he added to our day. To see the ocean from the "lanai"-leaving our car parked!! While Heisler Park and the beach are so beautiful to enjoy walking--it all together is a wonderful retreat.

What a wonderful vacation beach cottage. Comfortable bed and 100% cotton sheeets, just what the weary traveler needs. The views around here are spectacular and we walked all over-sometimes eight miles a day. We brought a pedometer. Also, the restaurants are plentiful and good, great hamburgers, yummy margaritas, delicious martinis and fabulous fish dishes. Whats not to like? Many thanks.

Living in Orange Co, I have always loved Laguna Beach but never knew what it felt to be a resident. Boy, was it wonderful! The cottage was lovely and charming-we will definitely return soon. Falling asleep to the sounds of waves crashing on shore is irreplacable. Thanks for a great visit.
