See what others are saying about the cottages: The cottage was beautiful, just what we were looking for for our few days by the ocean. The beds were really comfortable and rooms were really spacious. The cottage also offered nice spaces to chill out after a tough day on the beach. Location was excellent. Lots of good restaurants and cafes within walking distance and beach was one block away. I'll be back! -rachel Beautiful cottage. So much better than staying at a hotel. Everything was taken care of and every potential need thought of and provided for. We so loved our stay, and hope to be back int the future. Thank you so much for your hospitality! -torri Neil was great to deal with-- very communicative and easy going. The cottage is exactly as advertised and very close to the downtown restaurants and beach. I highly recommend going to Tacos Locos at some point-- the food is incredible. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to any friends looking to stay in Laguna Beach! -christina We really enjoyed our stay at Neil's place. It's in a great location and the cottage is extremely cute with some of the most comfortable beds! We will definitely be going back. -sonya The cottage was everything you see and more. Attention to detail around every corner. Fully stocked kitchen allowed us to enjoy freshly ground coffee, and all the cooking tools to fix appetizers throughout the day. Beds were comfy, and shower had all the typical toiletries found at a hotel. Very nice place! -melissa This place could not be more cozy & magical! Loved every minute of our (unfortunately short) stay. But def plan to come back soon hopefully! -jennifer Perfect location in Laguna Beach very close to the main beach.. Just off of Coast Highway so very little street noise. Plenty of parking. Cottage has been completely renovated. It is like new. It has a very nice kitchen that is fully equipped. Neil is a tremendous host. I would absolutely stay here again. -paul Very nice place, close to the beach & off the crowded tourist center. Enjoyed our stay a lot! -raphael We had an amazing stay in Laguna with my wife and two small children. The entire process was "laid back"... and we loved it that way. This is a beautiful and roomy surf shack that is very well appointed and comfortable. Within minutes walking distance to great beaches, restaurants/bars/coffee/grocery, and all kinds of shops. We wish we could have stayed longer and will be back in the future! Were unable to connect to the Wi-Fi with any device, and couldn't seem to get that resolved (only posting this in case you need Wi-Fi for work, kids etc.). Still worth a 5-star review -- this place is... shall I say "RAD"!! -kevin So to much say… The cottage is truly the quintessential beach house! Clean, minimal, "beachy," style, with an open floor plan, plenty of sun, comfortable beds, 2 blocks from the beach, free parking, AND a with a front yard with an Ocean View!!! The location is perfect; far enough away from the main beach for calm and quiet, with access to all the tiny, lesser-traveled coves; yet, close enough to walk down and take in all of the action. Turn south instead of north, walk ten minutes to K'ya's rooftop bar and watch the sunset. Devine. We will be back, probably several times. Lastly, Neil's responds promptly, and it could not have been easier! Great place, great host! -heather What a great cottage! The home was recently remodeled and decorated very nicely. It was equipped with all the comforts of home and perfect for a family of four. The location was amazing. Only one block to the beach. Neil was welcoming and great to work with! -antonette Neil's place was 50 seconds from the beach just as he said. It is recently remodeled and very welcoming. He made the entire process very easy. He was attentive to all our questions and was onsite to give us our keys. He even offered to show us around, which I thought was a lovely touch. He had everything we could have needed. Towels, bath supplies...even laundry supplies in case we needed to wash our clothes before packing up. We would love to go back for a longer stay the next time. His place is in a great location-walking distance to the beach and downtown Laguna. -jean This place is an excellent location as described and I would highly recommend. Clean and new, thank you Neil. -connor We were the first guests to stay at this adorable beach cottage over Spring Break. It is eveything described and more! It is immaculately decorated with every convenience that you'd need for a vacation in Laguna. It is ideally located a short walk to the beach and cafes. We had the best time! Neil is one of the nicest guys and had the best suggestions where to have breakfast and where to skimboard. I highly recommend to anyone who wants a breezy and relaxing stay in Laguna, stay here at Neil's cottage. Can't wait to come back. Thanks again Neil!! Carly -carly

Had a girls trip of 5. Beautiful cottage, lovely outdoor area, steps to the beach, bars, shops and grocery store. All of us said at one point during this trip that we wanted to live in the cottage. DEFINITELY RECCOMEND!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location!

great getaway! Stress free. Where do I start? If you like to cook and grill you will have everything you need in the kitchen and a great outdoor gas grill. Grocery store is one block away. If you do not want to cook you are surrounded by many bars and restaurants. No need to drive onto busy PCH just hop on the FREE trolley. This trolley rides from 11AM thru 11PM and it's free. The stop is right on the corner of St. Anne's. Walking across the street to watch the sunset is a must. There was only one negative for me, I am a TV junky and missed not watching a bit of TV but I survived. The place is so comfortable and the beds were so comfy. You can also find some beach chairs in the pantry in the kitchen area. Can't wait to go back. The staff is very accommodating.

5/5 Excellent


Our family had a wonderful time in Laguna Beach. This darling cottage is just steps from the sand. It was so nice to leave our car at the cottage and walk. Very cute beachy decor. Nice small yard and outdoor furniture to enjoy. Would love to stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Comfortable accommodations and centrally located in Laguna

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The location was centrally located with an easy walk into town to shop and dine. Many great restaurants to choose from and a grocery store less than a block away. We especially enjoyed wine, snacks, and chatting under the huge Sycamore tree in the large front yard. We visited the Mission San Juan Capistrano and went on a whale watching boat out of Newport Beach; each a short drive via Pacific Coast Highway enjoying the ocean views. Looking forward to returning to this property again in the future.


Very nicely decorated and clean

This would be the perfect cottage to stay in if not for one detail--no AC at all! Great location. Newly decorated and renovated. Very cute and comfy. But the lack of air conditioning makes it very uncomfortable when it is over 80 degrees outside. Also, the windows have no screens on them, so we felt like we couldn't leave them open all night with young children in the house, which made it even more hot at night to sleep. It wouldn't take much at all to at least put a few window AC units in here. This would have made all the difference.
