Not as described
I am amazed as the great reviews of this property. The location is good, the grounds are beautiful, and the outside deck has a great view of the water.
The house itself is old and beaten up. Clearly rooms have been added on without design or thought. The kitchen is tiny and non-functional. It's so small the refrigerator has to be located in another room. But worst of all, the house, especially the kitchen, was dirty. I had to scrub the dining table and kitchen counters 3-4 times each before they were even remotely clean. The counter by the tiny stove has years of grease build-up. I tried but eventually gave up on cleaning it.
The carpet in the master bedroom was dirty and needed a steam cleaning.
Be careful at night. It is pitch dark in the area and the switches to the exterior lighting are in the house. Not very useful.
I've booked through VRBO many times, and have always been happy with my rentals. This was a real disappointment. The house is old and small, and in need of cleaning and renovation.
I am sorry this was your experience, the regular cleaners had a substitute and I understand the cleaning wasn't up to snuff, that's why I refunded your cleaning fee. It is an old house built by my grandfather in the 1920s and that's what is so special about it. Bedrooms were each added when my uncle and father were born in the 1930s. For many of us that history and quaintness is the wonder of an old Cottage. My grandparents lived there for 70 years with no dishwasher, no granite counter tops, cooking 10's of thousands of meals in that tiny kitchen. The door between the kitchen and pantry where the refrigerator is, came from Europe on a ship around the Horn in the late 1800's. The click of that latch is one of my earliest childhood memories. There is too little history left and the house's quirks are part of it's charms for some of us. Hope your next rental is better for you. Best.
Beautiful Property in a Beautiful Place
Historic Laguna Beach is magical. The feeling of privacy and peacefulness of this property is exceptional, especially the magnificent deck surrounded by trees. We stayed for a week in August and no air conditioning was needed, might have used the fans 1 night. I was able to easily cook a dinner for 13 people in what is a small but very functional kitchen. Plenty of plates, pots, serving items, wine glasses, etc. I most appreciated the sense of being at summer camp in a tree house. Beds were comfortable, WIFI fast and reliable, water pressure spectacular. Quirky and fun, I had a great vacation here, walked to beach and park every day. Tip: easier walk up the hill if you go up another street to the north and then walk through the park.
