Nice and clean unit

  • 5 of 5


- clean unit, very comfy bed and easy to get in and out of the unit from the alley entrance

- near all the shops and restaurants (walking distance)

- easy to find (though the 'California' flag needs replacing)

- great communication and accommodating


- being 150 feet away from the beach was not as expected from the description. our thoughts in renting this unit was we could hear the ocean if we left our windows open at night and that wasn't the case. the ocean/beach is 1.5 blocks away with minimal view of the ocean due to the buildings blocking it. but we wouldn't necessarily call this a big deal, just not what we expected from the description

- parking was as described (not included) which we were aware of but for any other guests you should have a plan for where you want to park. again not a huge deal since hotels will charge by the day to park and there is a parking garage next to the unit that charged us $15/day which was fine.

Consistently Very Good

We just completed our third stay at this apartment and love it. Close to everything and convenient to our family who lives in Laguna. We appreciate the cleanliness and the space. It is perfect for us and we look forward to returning next time.

Perfect spot to enjoy Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located to all Laguna Beach attractions. Walking distance to most restaurants. The free trolley takes you to the places you don't want to walk. We rented a car at LAX but did not really need it.

Charming beach house/cottage with a comfy bed and great showers. If you're a couple who is looking for rest and relaxation with a beach themed vacation, I highly recommend this place.

Amazing. Better than expected.

Great little gem. Wow, super clean. Looks like it was all new.

The location is awesome. We walked everywhere. You are right in the middle of town. You don't need a car. The bed is super comfy. Loved it. Thanks

Most Horrific VRBO Experience EVER

  • 1 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here during a 2 week road trip to celebrate her soon departure for starting college. We drove down the coast from Seattle. We arrived late and exhausted. We climbed right into bed, ready to pass out, only to discover our worst nightmare - the bedding was SOILED WITH URINE. It was dry (thank God!), but it reeked! We scrambled out of bed and got to spend the next couple hours washing and drying the sheets. Thankfully, we found a replacement comforter in the closet. The original comforter was disgusting. There was only enough detergent for that one load of sheets, so we left the dirty comforter on the floor in front of the laundry. We were only in Laguna for two nights - one full day. After being up all night cleaning a place we paid full price to BE CLEAN ALREADY, we were exhausted and slept long the next day. We got ourselves together and spent the rest of the day at the beach, which is a short walk from the rental. The next morning, I texted the owners and told them about the situation - one hour before our departure time. I got no response until AFTER the departure time of 11 am. They wrote apologizing and claimed that they ALWAYS do a walk through to ensure the place is clean, but this one time, they didn't. What a strange coincidence! They also told me that they would offer me a "deep discount" the next time I stayed there. I thought about it and texted back that I'd be more than happy to pay full price for a place that honors the rental agreement, but I'd appreciate this "deep discount" to be applied to the current rental since that is the one with a MAJOR problem! After I sugggesred a discount in the amount of their "cleaning fee" (since I had to do the cleaning, I don't find it fair that I should pay them to clean as well!) and their service fee (since they didn't provide any service, including inspecting the place before we arrived), they have been nonresponsive to me. I've politely contacted them on a number of occasions to check the status of my request and I get no response back. I know this could be a terribly unfortunate incident, but, honestly, with people like this running the place, I would never return. And I can't recommend the place for others either. Not only for that - it was noisy; parking wasn't easy (there's a TON of metered parking, but very little free parking) and there are some lovely looking hotels on the beach that surely have clean beds (or a discount for the urine).

Owner's Response: Based on our reviews, we obviously run this place well. You only wrote this bc we didn't agree to refund you money. Unethical.
