Beach Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Elegantly appointed and modern in style and sophistication, the Cress Point Villa is a luxurious beach retreat. Sweeping Pacific Ocean views and soothing ocean waves set the tone for relaxation and renewal while ocean breezes flow through the home. A recent renovation brings chic beach style to this 2 bedroom, 1 bath bluff-top beauty. The modern cottage accommodates 6 guests and provides all the comforts of home, plus a stunning view. Designer décor and high-quality craftsmanship ensure a posh and pampering vacation experience while exploring Laguna Beach.

Decidedly upscale, this classic cottage takes full advantage of the fashionable Laguna setting and pristine ocean views. Guests will appreciate the modern fireplace in the living area as well as the captivating views while relaxing. A large work desk is included in the living room as well as a PC for guest use – at no additional charge. Cress Point also provides complimentary wireless internet access. A wall-mount flat screen TV hangs in the living room for guest enjoyment and comes equipped with a DVD player. The Hancock and Moore leather sleeper sofa’s high quality construction provides a very comfortable night’s sleep. It sits in perfect complement to the leather accent chairs for a comfortable conversation area as well as an additional sleeping space. Modern coastal artwork combines with designer accents to enhance the home’s remarkable craftsmanship. Custom flooring, crown moulding and wall finishes are all featured to provide a luxurious feel. Plush area rugs grace the floors and luxurious draperies accentuate the windows, framing breathtaking ocean views.

Rich dark wood floors lead to two private bedrooms that offer a luxurious atmosphere with graceful Queen-size beds featuring top of the line air-loom mattresses. Beautiful high thread count linens adorn the pillow-top mattresses to welcome sleep and tranquility. Ample mirrored wardrobes are included in each room as well as ceiling fans, warm lighting and a flat screen TV.

Great host, location, and unit!

  • 4 out of 5
My group thoroughly enjoyed our time at 120 Cress. It is an incredibly location and unit for the price. Book in September for an even better deal with a lower minimum stay. The weather is still beautiful. I'll try to break down our process in a couple pieces.

The process:
Once you communicate with Simi (the owner), and he agrees, you can book the location. You'll have to give him your address, as well as the names/ages of guests. I assume this is for liability purposes as the property must be extremely valuable. Denise (the manager), will meet you at the property, check you in, and explain the details of the property. When you check out, you just leave on your own putting the key in a designated spot.

Simi and especially Denise make the process painless with their quick communication, clear instructions, and flexibility. Denise provided her cell phone number in order to co-ordinate check in, she was flexible with times as well as prompt with communication. She answered texts even after we checked in very quickly. (A question about the garage door was answered in 2 minutes.)

The location:
It's as close to the beach as you're gonna get! Literally right outside the door are steps down to the beach. Do not underestimate how convenient this is. This meant we never had to take anything to the beach, not even sandals! Just take what you need and come back if your needs change. Also, the beach it leads to is less busy than the other beaches since there is a rock formation that isolates it from the beaches to the north.

With the good comes a bit of bad. Since the property is right next to a road which has steps to the beach, there is quite a bit of traffic next to the property. During the day you have folks going to/from the beach, delivery trucks servicing the restaurant, as well as frequent smokers just hanging out. At night, there were quite a few drunks who were on their way to/from the beach and felt the need to try and strike up conversations or ask for food.

The unit:
The unit is fantastic. It's clean, modern, and sleeps 6 comfortably. There is an outdoor shower which we used far more than expected (you'll need it to wash off the sand). TV and internet worked without any issues (once we switched an HDMI cable). The parking spot is in a garage at the very end of an alley. We parked a minivan in there with no problem, but it was tight. There was constantly someone parked behind us in the alley.

Yearly Renter who Keeps Going Back!

  • 5 out of 5
We've been renting this wonderful unit one week per summer for the past five years. We rent this unit every year and plan on renting every year going forward. The location is perfect. You walk out of the property gate, and the stairs to the beach are literally at an arm's reach! It's a few steps to get down to beach to say the least, but it's good exercise. We've still managed to successfully navigate the steps with three children...totally worth the few extra steps to land on a perfect piece of beach! The steps could only be an issue for those who have problems climbing a standard flight of steps (since there are few more than that).

The actual location of the property in Laguna itself is great. It's not in the super-busy main section of town (so it's quiet most nights), but it's not too far away where you feel left out of the action. It's a bit of a walk to the main center of town, or a quick car ride.

The unit itself is cozy and certainly more than comfortable for 4 adults to stay. The unit is always clean, modern, and kept up well year after year. The community space between the 3 units (there are 2 others on the property) is great for allowing the kids to run around and for everyone to socialize with the other renters. This unit has it's own BBQ grill and the best view of the ocean, which are pluses. There is a one car garage parking space below that is large enough to fit a standard Escalade (with some skill)....anything bigger will not fit. The owners of the property have been the same owners since we have been renting. They are super attentive, and do everything to make your stay easy and worry free.

All in all, we have been so fortunate to have found this property. As our family has grown we now rent a second unit on the property at the same time. We plan of enjoying Laguna and Cress Point for years to come!

5 stars well deserved!

This property is well appointed and sits right in the heart of Laguna. Parking no problem, walking to restaurants and grocery store. The best of all are the views, and beach access. Very comfortable 2 bedroom. Fireplace a hit. Very private and love the outdoor fireplaces.
