Summerland Cottage is the perfect refuge,
a great place for artists to relax and be inspired

It is a historic cottage sitting high on a bluff overlooking the sparkling pacific ocean.
It is newly refurbished through out and well appointed.
The private brick courtyard with peekaboo ocean view makes this historic cottage a charmer.
Summerland Cottage is located in desirable North Laguna Beach,
just steps to the ocean (less than half a block).

Enjoy Spectacular Views overlooking the Pacific Ocean as you walk through Heisler Park to reach Downtown Laguna.
The quaint town is filled with famous restaurants, art galleries and charming shops.
During the summer months the Sawdust Festival, Laguna Art Festival and the Pageant of the Masters with its outdoors performances are a free trolley ride from the cottage.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Whoaa! What a lovely cottage to spend time in...I spent four nights and every evening I had friends (from a reunion) stop by....and they all marveled at Paulette's place. We hung out in the courtyard with wine and cheese, enjoyed listening to music, prepared dinners and snacks in the cute kitchen, and walked a few hundred yards away to a French coffee shop or the supermarket or the beach. The location is tranquil and enclosed - and Paulette does a great job at briefing you (if you are interested) on where to go, what to do, and where to eat and drink. I was fortunate not only in spending time at this excellent artistic, tranquil location, but being able to share the experience with friends! They insist I must return. I Highly Recommend staying here....thank you Paulette!

  • Great patio for relaxing or entertaining! Easy walk to Madison Gardens for breakfast and very close to the beach. The perfect spot to get away for a weekend. Had a wonderful time.

  • Loved our stay here! My boyfriend and I stayed in this wonderful cottage over 4th of July weekend. Paulette was very helpful with giving us reviews of water sorts and excellent restaurants. The cottage had everything we needed and in such a great location. Could easily walk to the main beach in under 5 minutes. Getting into downtown was easy as there are trolly stops close to the cottage, but the walk along the beach was just as quick and beautiful. Paulette was great and had beach chairs, towels and and lovely courtyard with a gas grill! Perfect place for going to the beach, viewing the art galleries and enjoying great food and drinks downtown!

  • We had an incredible stay at the Summerland Cottage for our honeymoon. Paulette is an ideal host -- she is there for any questions you may have, but she also respects your privacy. She lives in the main house attached to the cottage, but she has her own back yard, so the courtyard is yours (she is only there when coming or going from her house). For us, she made a list of vegan restaurants, bookstores, and art museums, and she even got us hard-to-get tickets to the opening of the Sawdust Art Festival. The cottage itself has everything you need -- full kitchen with appliances and cookware, laundry, and a private courtyard. We were able to leave the cottage door open, so that when we were gone, our little dog was free to roam about the cottage and the courtyard. The beach is across the street and down a few steps, and Heisler Park is just across the street. This is the perfect place for a couple or a couple with a dog. We can't recommend it enough!

  • had a great time in Laguna with Paulette. She was really sweet and welcoming, and even cooked us some chicken breast! The place is centrally located, walkable to the beach, and the cottage has a back yard that is beautiful. We took our dog and he had a blast! Thanks Paulette, will def stay again if I come back :)

  • Summerland Cottage is a charming vintage accommodation in a perfect location. Hostess Paulette has thought of everything to make you comfortable. From dishes, pots and pans, corkscrew, coffee pot, a cozy throw to beach chairs, it's all there. She even offers her shared laundry area if needed. The Directv access allows you to record movies and watch at your leisure. The cottage is spotless as if it were brand new and loaded with designer style. The queen bed was comfy and the down-filled love seat in the sitting room was dreamy. As for location, we parked our car across the street in a nice well lit area and didn't use it again until we left to go home. It's a 5 minute walk to a couple of gorgeous coves and Heisler Park. About a 15 minute beachfront walk through Heisler Park puts you at Main Beach and downtown. Paulette is a wonderful hostess!!! And, her little cottage is a perfect getaway.

  • The Summerland Cottage is a fantastic find in Laguna Beach and Paulette will make you feel right at home in this perfectly appointed slice of heaven. The cottage is pristine, airy and bright. Artwork by local artists grace the walls. And, it's all a short walk from the best beaches in Laguna. As a former Laguna local, I can tell you that its location in North Laguna can't be beat. It's my favorite neighborhood, totally walkable and utterly charming. So, feel like a local yourself and enjoy your stay at Summerland.

    Some highlights:
    *Charming brick patio, with BBQ, seating and peek-a-view
    *Spotless bathroom with delightful shower pressure
    *Short walk to best beaches and coves
    *Welcoming, informative, friendly local hostess

  • Summerland Cottage was fantastic, and Paulette, the lovely host, was incredibly gracious and welcoming. I highly recommend this gem in Laguna Beach: it's a block from the ocean and a stroll away from downtown. Paulette has provided everything one needs for a pleasant and relaxed stay. The interior is beautiful and comfortable, and the courtyard garden is enchanting. This cottage is a delightful space to return to after a day of exploring. Thank you, Paulette!

  • We had a wonderful experience at the Summerland Cottage and we would definitely come back. The cottage is a sweet oasis that is warm and inviting just like the host Paulette, she is really great! The private patio, wash and cottage are very nice. The grill was a major bonus, especially since there is a grocery store right around the corner. The beach is a hop, skip and a jump away and the free shuttle was amazing. Paulette is a wonderful host and she keeps a very clean home, which was so helpful. The cottage had everything that we needed and more.
