Step just outside of studio to large beautiful garden with fruit trees and space to relax. Local pool, tennis courts, and city bus access are directly across the street. Free trolley runs from June 1-September 4th and can be obtained just two blocks away.

We are the guests hosts, co- owners of a very small family restaurant that has been in Laguna for 35 years. We know this town and all the wonderful things it has to offer, and want to share it with you. Awaken in the morning to fresh eggs from our chickens. Pick lemons, limes, and oranges from the fruit trees, then later stroll to the beach or village just a few minutes away!

This charming little studio is an extension of our refurbished beach cottage. It is the perfect location, whether walking or taking public transit,the beach, festival grounds and village are just minutes away.

Guest Access

Guests will have full access to lower garden area. Enjoy the garden; pick fruit from the trees, collect eggs from our hens and enjoy the aviaries. Children may use trampoline (supervised) and play structure. Use of outdoor hot shower. Covered carport available.

Interaction with Guests

We are both working parents of three, so are quite busy and on the go most days. We like to make our guests feel welcome and at home while staying in the studio. We like to give our guests their privacy, but are happy to help and suggest with things to do in town.

The Neighborhood

We love that we are just a few blocks walk to the beach and village/down town. It is just a 5 minute walk to the take a swim in the ocean, have dinner downtown, visit an art gallery or shop in the village. We also love being just across the street from the community, tennis courts, and large track/field area to run and play soccer.

Getting around

There is a city bus which runs daily and charges a nominal fee. There is a stop directly across the street from the studio. A free open air trolley runs from the end of June through the beginning of September. The wonderful thing about the location of the studio is that beach, town, shops, library, market and galleries are just a 5 minute walk away!

Other Things to Note

There is so much to do in Laguna. Besides the beautiful beaches to swim, surf, snorkel, paddle board or just relax by, we have a wonderful community of artists. There are numerous galleries, the well known Sawdust Festival, Art a Fair and Pagent of the Masters, all of which run throughout the summer months.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay at Lisa's studio. It is a very cute, self-contained little studio, really nicely decorated. The studio was very clean and really conveniently located, just a 10 min walk from all shops and restaurants. The studio is very quiet too, which we liked. There is a beautiful garden, our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy it. Communication with Lisa was very easy, this was our first experience with Airbnb and we really enjoyed it, thanks Lisa !

  • Cutest little cottage ever! This was our first airbnb experience and if every host is as wonderful as Lisa and her family it surely will not be our last. Very down to earth , friendly, accommodating, and easy to get along with. We will definitely stay in touch as we've made new friends in Laguna! Thank you Lisa and family for a great stay.

  • Lisa's place rocks and we can't wait to come back to Laguna! Peaceful, well appointed and great proximity to everything! This place is a real gem!!

  • The Beach Cottage Studio Apartment provides the perfect, tranquil hideaway complete with anything you might need, whilst also giving you access to the beach and the 'Village' of Laguna Beach (and a simple, short and pretty stroll to get there) for anytime you want to experience lots of fun things to do and see! Lisa and her family are lovely people and wonderful hosts!

  • The apartment was great. I had everything I needed to cook part of the time. It was very quiet and serene. We enjoyed the garden setting for wine and to relax after a day at the beach. Our nieces came out for a day and loved the exotic birds and the trampoline. We were able to walk into town daily to shop and eat. Lisa was available for questions, but she was so well organized with phone apps and brochures that we didn't need her assistance after the first day. We stayed quite happily for a week. Thanks!

  • My wife and I just had an awesome, very relaxing, three night stay at Lisa's. The Laguna weather was amazing, we enjoyed staying so close to the beach. Lisa's place is nicely equipped with almost everything you need to cook meals. We really enjoyed the kitchen, so much better than a simple hotel. Beach towels, chairs, and umbrella were a bonus, was nice not to have to drag these items down with us. Lisa was even able to talk the next door neighbor to allow us to use his really nice BBQ, we grilled some really amazing Porterhouse steaks. Great stay, will try and return next summer. Wifi Internet access is super fast, > 30 Mbps was awesome.

  • We had a wonderful time - the location was perfect the accommodations were more than we expected. Lisa has a little slice of heaven in her back yard. Walking distance to the beach and all the wonderful shops. Lisa was a wonderful hostess - she supplied local coffee (yum) and a basket of fruit. If you are looking for a place to stay in by the beach you can't go wrong staying here.

  • Lisa is a perfect host! The condo is well situated (10 min walk to the beach) in a quiet residential street. The garden is a piece of heaven and the studio is well furnished. If something missing, I'm sure that Lisa will help you.
    We hope to be back soon!

    July 2013
  • A perfect little beach studio getaway. Lisa was a gracious hostess and the apartment is a gem, just great. Her garden is just beautiful. The only downside is lack of wifi access, but everything else was perfect. I would definitely stay again if I return to Laguna next year. Thanks for everything!
