. . . the mattress had been more comfortable it would've been perfect. It was broken down in the middle, and I threw out my back and ended up laid up indoors for our whole trip, missing the Pageant of the Masters and all of the fun we had planned. The property absolutely oozes charm and the Green Cottage is... More

I was overdue for a rest, and the Cottages was the best thing for me! Peaceful, cozy, inviting and a quick walk to the beach or town. It was perfect! I loved the 20's décor and the care they took in renovating the property down to every detail. Diane was a doll, friendly and accommodating, although we never needed to... More

This establishment is a breath of fresh air in a town that is drowning in excess. The cabins are clean, well located, provide free parking, and are generally comfortable. These are older buildings with no air conditioning, but the same is true of the Surf and Sand at three times the price. If Laguna Beach winds your clock, this is... More

We loved our stay in the adorable quiet cottages. Diane was wonderful on making sure we felt welcome and was available via phone for any concerns which we had none as they had already though of everything. The location is just a few minute walk down to the beach and downtown Laguna but when inside the lush courtyard, it feels... More

Great little house/cottage in a quiet neighborhood - we were in the Green cottage. The place was great and very clean with a super comfortable bed. The grounds/patio were great as well. 5-10 minute walk to the beach and town. Diane was great to work with and very nice.

So so pleased I found Manzanita Cottages during our trip from New England to southern California. Sometimes it makes sense to have the predictable accommodations of a hotel, but for a real sense of a community and vacation, these guest cottages were superb! Traveling with a teenager and a middle school girl, each of whom love the novelty of being... More

We all felt very relaxed and absolutely loved the atmosphere, everything was amazing. It has a little secret garden where my boys had a great time looking for easter eggs, blowing... More

My husband and I spent a delightful 5 days in February at Manzanita Cottages. We were getting away from a very long, cold, East Coast winter. The green cottage served as an oasis of relaxation and peace. It was just a short walk to restaurants in town and to the beach. But the best part was staying at the cottage,... More

This could not have been more perfect for us: a few blocks walk to incredible restaurants, 2 grocery stores, great shopping, and the beach! A comfortable miniature house for 2 and the charm of Laguna were better than we had imagined! The cottages were a little haven for us, and we loved our stay. Here's a suggestion: Get an outdoor...
