Laguna Vista’s spacious master bedroom is elegantly appointed and includes a luxurious queen size bed featuring a top of the line air-loom pillow top mattress which guarantees a plush and supremely comfortable night’s sleep. The sound of crashing waves additionally contributes to a restful slumber. The en-suite master bathroom is equally lavish, featuring a full size tub/shower combo, marble counters and superb lighting. The villa’s third bedroom is also a luxurious haven, filled with luxury linens, an air-loom pillow top mattress and plenty of storage space. An additional bathroom and a powder room/half-bath are included, both featuring spa-like touches, imported tilework and modern fixtures.

We had a fantastic time on our vacation in Laguna Beach. The house was perfect for our family. We would definitely consider staying again if we made another trip out!
The Leavitt Family - San Francisco, CA
Having the beach steps literally outside your home is fantastic. The home had great updates. Nice layout and very nice layout.
We enjoyed the unit very much. I don't know how the common area would feel if all 3 units were rented out at the same time. While there only ours was rented so we had it all to your self. Hard to say I guess, but while to ourselves we really enjoyed the fireplaces outdoors. While you don't have a beach connecting to your unit that you can see from inside -- it didn't matter much cause it's steps away as soon as you step outside.
The main drawback was the busy street. That's the main reason we didn't rate it a 5 out of 5.
At night time people were constantly walking by and making small talk -- which really makes it tough to have a private get away. Since the fence is open gate they can see right in. Maybe some shrubbery would help or a closed in fence?
If this place had more privacy from the busy road it would be perfect. Luckily it's a cup de sac so it helps minimize it, and I get it -- it's a public beach so of course your not going to 100% private but atleast some buffer would be nice.
I would consider going back: the parking for us was nice since we got the larger unit we had a driveway parking.
Overall a great experience - the owner even let us check in early. I will recommend this place , but to give my honest feedback if it had more privacy I would've given it a 5 star.
This is the 2nd year we have stayed at the house. The beach is less crowed than the main beach and it is located in walking distance to restaurants and shopping. We will be back again.
We all had a great time. Thank goodness parking was provided, because there certainly isn't any street parking available. The proximity to the beach was the best part of the vacation. We also lucked out with beautiful weather
We have stayed at the Cress street properties at least ten times and can guarantee we will be back again sometime in the near future. Location and amenities couldn't be better! The fenced in courtyard is very secure and provides a wonderful outdoor area for my children to play. On site parking, direct beach access and close proximity to my favorite book store make this my happy, happy place! Denise and Simi are always quick to respond to concerns or requests and booking though home away is quick and easy. I can't say enough how happy I am to have found this gem of a rental in the heart of Laguna.
The location was ideal, just steps from the ocean and a quick walk to restaurants and public beaches and parks. The home was perfect for our family of seven which included six adults and a 21 month old. The home was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting by the fire pit at night. We would stay here again if our travels take us back to Laguna and we would recommend it to friends.
We had a wonderful time at Laguna Vista. The home has everything needed to comfortably house 6 people. My two kids loved being able to walk out the front door and down the steps to the beach without having to cross a busy street. The fire pits were great in the evenings, and I could hear the waves from my bed at night.
The house is a 15 minute walk from Main Beach, and there are lots of great restaurants and shops to browse just outside the home.
The property manager was very responsive when the Internet and hot water went out for a few hours and both were back up quickly.
This is a great place for a relaxing vacation.
