Firstly, this place is a studio not a one bedroom cottage! If you book this place for any warm or summer months, prepare to be miserable! There is no AC & the windows are so small that you can barely feel the breeze (only one ceiling fan on far end of studio so not much air circulation). No screens on windows, so hopefully you're insect-friendly. Limited kitchen appliances-no blender for making drinks or dishwasher. Owner will accuse you of damage to any less-than-new item if she thinks she will get away with it. The only reason it deserves any stars at all is because of the location!
If you are looking for a perfect place for a couple that's burts with character and charm, that is literally steps from the ocean, away from the crowds, yet still within comfortable walking distance to all the Laguna Beach restaurants and shops, then Summerland Cottage is your place. The moment we walked into the 1929 bungalow we were in love. The owner has thought of everything, including a perfect place to spend your mornings or grab an afternoon nap - a private brick patio that is beautifully landscaped. We are planning another trip to Laguna Beach late this summer and have already booked our stay here. We travel quite a bit and this has been the perfect spot to enjoy the beauty of Laguna Beach, yet still be able to enjoy some peace and quiet. Love, Love, Love!!!

Very nice place and just the right size for two people. The location is excellent, very close to downtown Laguna Beach. You can walk across the street to the beach.
