Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

The condo itself is nice. Two very big problems exist..there is a privacy issue and there really isn’t a beach. People use the steps all day long to go down to the water. If you are sitting outside or in the living room they are right there. Also, inside the gated area people walking by look right in the window. The biggest issue…there is only a tiny rocky beach! Not a long expanse of beach if you look like to walk on the beach this place is not for you or me! All in all we were very disappointed!

This was a well needed getaway vacation from the cold. Denise was excellent to work with, she accommodated us quite nicely even though we were not exactly sure what time we would be getting there due to some site seeing in LA. The weather was slightly chilly but the fire place was wonderful. The best part of this place is the view and location to the beach! When the tide was in there wasn't a beach but it was fun to watch the waves crash against the rocks. When the tide was out though it was simply wonderful! Was a great location to take the kids and go exploring in the tide pools and just see God's creation! The kitchen is stocked with some of the normal stuff. It was missing a measuring cup, we ended up buying and leaving it there, and a few other things that I thought it would have, but all in all it was a great place and we would stay there again if we were back in the area. Thank you for a great visit!

Stayed there a week and the A/C that were connected blew nothing but hot air. It was at least 10degrees hotter inside than outside. We sweat the whole week. You do not need A/C more than a couple months but that doesn’t excuse the landlord for not providing adequate accommodations. I will never go back.

Very cute beach condo/home with a beautiful view. Overall good experience and a memorable time was had for us on this trip. Two things to be aware of before booking though. The beds were not as comfortable as the listing described, so we opted for a massage on our second day. One reason I chose this rental was the view and the listing stated it had A/C. Unfortunately, the window units did not work as well as desired and required us to drain them about every hour in order for them to cool. This was very unfortunate after a long day on the beach or out on the fishing boat, as we set them to have it cooled when we returned only to return and them not be working because they were full of water. The view is amazing but there is a lot of traffic directly outside your doorsteps and along side your patio where you sit to enjoy the view. The steps that go down to the beach are conveniently located to this listing but be aware that they are not private steps for your condo. They are public steps that provide public access to the beach that's directly outside your door. It's convenient for you but also is a spoiler if you're looking for privacy. There was constant traffic outside our doorsteps and garden gate and people so close when we were outside relaxing and taking in the view that you could reach out and shake hands and over hear one another's conversation. If you're okay with those two things, then you'll love this cute place with a beautiful view. The property management representative was very nice and helpful and did report the AC issue to the owners so maybe it'll be resolved before others book. She was helpful and even greeted us with a happy and called to check on us during our stay. I'll forever remember it as we got engaged on this beach trip and that view and sunset was amazing to watch together for the first time as an engaged couple.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. we have replaced the AC units with new ones. Laguna beach @ Cress St is very busy due to high surfs, the street will be busy during the entire summer. We have not listed this rental as private access to the beach, this is a 3 unit rental in 1 compound

The condo is walking distance to the market, restaraunts and shops. Simi(owner) is very friendly too. It's a great place to have a family vacation. Thanks Simi

Perfect location right above the beach- the steps down to the beach are right on your doorstep. Easy walk into town and very easy to find. Very clean and everything you need for a vacation home including washer and dryer. The property manager was particularly helpful in letting us in later than we had expected and sorting us out with a really super babysitter.

Denise and Simi held my hand from the initial booking to our arrival at the condo. The condo itself is lovely. You have everything you need -- complete kitchen including a large washer and dryer. Very comfortable beds. Love love love the deep tub and hot water. The outside area is amazing. We entertained friends around the fire pit and used the large barbeque grill to fix a nice dinner. They all remarked about the magnificent view from the patio -- and it was all ours. We did not realize how convenient the private garage was until we saw the parking in Laguna Beach. In other condos, there maybe parking but it often requires juggling of vehicles when someone wants to leave. We would definitely stay here again. Denise was just a phone call away.

We joined our extended family before Christmas at this rental, was blown away by fancy, modern & contemporary and upscale this vacation home was. There were 3 rentals in the compound and this was the best one even though it is only 2 bedrooms/1 Bath, the furnishings were very high end and comfy and nice. 3 televisions in the house with a fire place was the best with a nice kitchen to cook breakfast everyday. The outdoor showers come in handy to clean off the sand from the beach, the ocean was right at the front door, we were keeping an eye on the kids who were in the ocean, sitting up in the courtyard on the bluff top by the bar setting. The management was very friendly and courteous. All in all, will definitely come back to this rental. It's a paradise here.....

We really enjoyed the location--very close to the beach, also close enough to downtown Laguna to walk. Plenty of shops/restaurants within blocks. The property is very well-maintained, did not lack for any essentials. This will be our first choice when we return to Laguna. Much better than a hotel stay!
