Paulette is a gracious hostess. She welcomed us upon our arrival and showed us the cottage - room by room.
The cottage is separate from her main house with a shared courtyard. The neighborhood is quiet. The Pavilions shopping center is a few steps away. The cottage offers a private (and secure) setting close to beach and shopping amenities.
Thank you Paulette for your lovely cottage.
Paulette was an excellent host! See gave us great information about things to do around the area, but we barely saw here the whole time except when we checked in and we needed extra pillows. She completely respected our privacy and was fantastic! The cottage was great and had everything we needed! Thanks again for letting us stay at your cottage! We will be back again!
The Summerland Cottage is exactly as billed in a great location with the a very cozy feel and relaxing atmosphere. It is definitely a getaway location that really gets your mind to focus on enjoying the beach life. Paulette was extremely accommodating and quick to respond - she was awesome on the communication front and very friendly.
Great location! Walking distance to all the great restaurants and shops. Check in/out was super easy. Would stay here again.
Paulette left beautiful fresh flowers in our room. The listing was accurate in the neighborhood was perfect
Paulette is an excellent host who coordinated with us and adapted her schedule to our delayed arrival. She graciously greeted us and welcomed us into her beautiful cottage. It was completely as advertised and more! It is exceptionally clean and a perfect place to experience "life in Laguna Beach"!
What a fantastic treat! Paulette's cottage is a miraculous little retreat from the world, just a short stroll from the beach. From the cozy rooms to the serene garden patio, Summerland was exactly the escape we needed. Paulette was a gracious host, welcoming us in person and showing us around the cottage (her house is adjacent but the rental is completely private). She made sure the house was spotless, and everything was perfect. Many thanks, Paulette!
