"Laurel Lounge" is named after the huge trees that come up through its deck. Bay Laurels & Redwoods cover this sweet property.Wake up to the birds and squirrels scampering from tree to tree.
From the moment you hit the deck you know you are at a loved and very well cared for cottage. This pristine vacation rental has been creatively remodeled by its owners....note the "Giant's" flag as you drive up...lol
"Laurel Lounge" has a huge deck with very large shade trees...perfect for kicking back, sipping wine and catching-up with your friends and family.
The cottage has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a nice sized and well appointed kitchen, a charming dining room and cozy living room with a fireplace and flat screen TV. Enjoy a cozy fire while looking out at the deck and lush landscape surrounding the cottage. French doors from the living room open to the expansive deck.
The Master bedroom has a queen bed and small flat screen TV, the second bedroom has 2 singles and the living room has a comfortable queen pullout. Perfect for 2 to 6 of your very favorite people!
There is also a sweet and quiet sitting room off of the living room. Great place to grab a book and relax...
We can not say enough good things about "Laurel Lounge"! If you are looking for cute, clean and comfortable you have arrived!

House and accommodations went well beyond what was expected. House was extremely well stocked and had plenty of things to keep you busy for an extended weekend. The host was also very helpful and quick to respond to all questions prior to the stay. Excellent experience all the way around.
We absolutely loved this tucked away little spot in the redwoods! Can't wait to head back sometime soon. The drive from San Francisco is gorgeous and there are plenty of lovely wineries on the way. The cabin was lovely, clean and perfectly stocked. Our dogs had a great time also, there is plenty of room to explore in this wooded getaway. Thanks, Stace!
This little cottage was perfect for our stay. Me and my girlfriend stayed here over a three day weekend in February and spent a lot of time cooking, watching movies, hot tubbing, and exploring the regional wineries. Korbel Sparkling Cellar is just 5 minutes away and the coast is only a 15 - 20 minute drive. The place was super clean and very quiet. We never saw the hosts, but check in and check out were very easy. No problems to report really. There was actually good wi-fi contrary to the description of the unit which was a pleasant surprise. We plan on coming back here maybe next Winter!
The Little Red House was wonderful - top notch kitchen appliances and cookware (including a cast iron pan) and forced heat throughout which made it a cozy get away. The beds were comfortable, shower was great (pressure nice and fixtures are all updated) and we loved the hot tub & hammock swing under the redwoods. This is a very conveniently located home and we hope to stay here again. Be sure to bring extra towels (as clearly suggested by the host) for the hot tub and in case you are staying multiple days as the home comes w/ exactly one towel per guest. Overall, this was an amazing getaway with friends!
Stace delivered amazing service in the planning phase and the house was the cleanest vacation home we have ever stayed in. The location is dreamy and the deer outside topped it all off perfectly! I would definitely go back and recommend it highly.
Stace was very organized and the house was spotless, incredibly bright, and spacious.
Our party of 11 loved the location, the kitchen, the game room, the many, many decks, and the sunshine and beach close by. It was perfect!
Our only quibble was that Internet was slow -- but we were a group of 11 using it as a work retreat, so there were times when we all had to be online simultaneously.
We had a great time in the Bella Oceana. The view is amazing and the house well stocked with appliances. Perfect for a weekend on the beach!
The one funny thing was that there are abundant instructions all over the house that, although mostly reasonable, make you feel a bit like a little kid.
House was fine, and served the 8 of us well (although tight). Amazing views from a large deck with a small/basic hottub. 10-15 min walk to wonderful beach down a steep hill. Property manager was extremely nice and helpful.
Only downside is the overly extensive list of rules and regulations, unlike any of us have seen. And wifi is via a rented verizon router, which has significant limits. So just keep that in mind and you'll enjoy it.
Glad you had a great stay. Before you rented Bella Oceana we discussed that it had parking for 3 cars max and I let you know where to park any extra cars (The fact that you chose to park your extra car in a neighbors driveway was strange and not cool at all). I also explained what the wifi situation was...so no surprises there...you actually did not "rent " the wifi as you asked me to waive that fee and I did.
Houses that are rented that have WiFi have unlimited, free access to the internet. If a house does not have WiFi but you are in need of internet access, we do have Hot Spots that we rent for limited use. No downloading or streaming from these devices. They are meant for checking emails, surfing the internet only. I did explain that to you.
glad you had a good stay...it is a wonderful house.
Stace was great and very responsive throughout our stay. We absolutely loved the house. It was very clean, the kitchen was well stocked, and the views were absolutely amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
