About Sharon McNair

I am a retired Geriatric Social Worker and have had this property since 1979. I have had the privilege of living in Laguna Beach since 1963 and love the town, neighborhood and area, so when my guests ask about the history, of the area I love relaying this information. There is also several books in the cottage pertaining to the history of Laguna Beach and area.

Sharon McNair purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Sharon McNair chose South Laguna

This property is an ideal place for a vacation because the neighborhood is very quiet, there are two parking places in front, and guests can feel they have a small home all to themselves. They can walk to the beach, or a mountain trail or just puruse the neighborhood and feel very safe. The cottage has all the amenities they could want and is close to excellent restaurants

What makes this cottage unique

The most unique aspect of this property is that it is not attached to any other structure so my guests feel the have their own private house. they can walk the three beautiful public beaches and It is also in a very quiet and safe neighborhood away from all the traffic and noise of the city. The patio, yard, and deck provides a relaxing atmosphere, and the weather is very mild.

Ideal location

  • 4 of 5

This little cottage had everything we needed and a lovely fenced yard with patio. Our little dogs enjoyed the shade and neighborhood walks. The cool ocean breezes reached both levels for quiet nights. Getting to the downstairs bedroom can be a laugh if you are young at heart and DUCK to miss the two low beams. If you have poor memory for a midnight visit to the loo upstairs, you might take home a few bumps along with the good memories. We definitely plan to stay longer next time. Thanks Sharon!

Lovely Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical long weekend at Sharron's Laguna beach hideaway. The place was cute and the yard was very tranquil. The neighborhood is really lovely too. Easy walk to the beach, coffee shops and a great pizza joint. Sharron was very welcoming and helpful. We look forward to going back again someday.

Wonderful little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I rented Sharon's cottage, and I have it reserved again for a third time in September. The cottage is clean and comfy and is located a short walk to the trolley stop which makes it convenient to get to shops and restaurants. The beach is a short walk from the cottage, or you can ride the free trolley to other beach locations. Sharon is very accommodating and wants to make sure you have a really nice time staying at her cottage. I highly recommend this little cottage if you want to experience what it's like to live in a beach community.

I was there to celebrate my birthday and it was amazing . The place is quiet and gave me a chance to clear my head . It's walking distant from so many places and the beach is just a 5 mins walk . The cottage was a little piece of heaven

Our overall experience was positive!

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was really cute! Located in a great spot! The front porch and yard was so nice to have...very comfortable to relax with such lovely plants and furniture!

The bed was very comfy! We loved the quirky low ceiling down in the bedroom. Great to have the washer and dryer!

Sharon was really friendly!

The part we wish was better was the fact that the cottage needed a very deep cleaning! The kitchen and bathroom were very grungy. I had to clean the surface of everything I used our first night but did not want to waste my vacay cleaning so did not do all what was needed. The fridge needed some attention inside and out! The shower was uber small, and had pour water pressure!

It's a very nice touch to have a returnable cleaning fee but truly having one person do an entire clean between guests might work more effectively!

Saying all that I do not want to discourage anyone from renting this place! We really did enjoy ourselves!

We loved Laguna Beach on the whole!
