We stayed in 38b on a cancellation that we got 2 weeks before. It's a dorm style room. Imagine a big house and everyone gets a bedroom with a lock on the door. The bathroom, deck and kitchen are all common areas. Linens and a tiny bar of soap are provided. Prepare to put your sheets on your bed. It... More

We were very, very lucky and managed to get a cancellation. We stayed one night in the dorm style cottages way back in 2010. We bought our food and drink from the local supermarket and got to know the rest of the people staying in our dorm. We visited again in 2012 but couldn't get a room so we spent... More

My mom and I stayed here for a one night stay-cation and had a wonderful time. From what I've gathered by looking at other pictures, I think that we were blessed with one of the more light and airy cottages. It was actually really cute and when I do come back in the future, I will be on the look... More

Wife got us a cottage here. The cottages vary from cabin-like to beach-house so choose wisely. Also, the location is really great if you just want fine dine at Beachcomber, drive a mile or two to get a burger at the shake shack, coffee at Starbucks or pickup a few groceries at Trader Joes. There are also plenty of dining... More

I stayed at the converted garage "cottage" a few years ago, and was back recently on the beach during an event. I see they still book the beachfront places when there's a scheduled event in front of them without warning. There's the day before and the day of the event for trucks hauling, machinery roaring, workers yelling, dust and truck... More

We just enjoyed our first visit to Crystal Cove, staying in the Shell Shack, cottage #2. This magical place rewinds time to an earlier era, and the cottages make this possible. There is no TV or wifi, and to our thinking, this is a good thing. Instead of fiddling with gadgets or parking in front of the tube, we sat... More

This was our second stay at the Cottages. Our first was in cottage #40 on the beach. This time we stayed at #18 on the bluff. My husband is handicapped, and the parking for #40 is not at all convenient. At #18 it is right next to the cottage. Aside from that, here is what we loved about #18: the... More

If you're looking for a very basic cottage in one of the most beautiful locations in the world, this is for you. It's good to know that the only provided items in the kitchen are a microwave, refrigerator, toaster, paper plates, plastic forks, knives, spoons, and cups. We brought our own coffee maker and cups although coffee is available in... More

Just love love love this place. It’s so special. Each cottage is different and unique. My goal is to stay in all of them at least once. We stayed in 29B multiple times. It’s perfect for four, with an outstanding patio and panoramic ocean view. Try it, You’ll like it!

We Love Crystal Cove! We have visited many times; however, this was our second overnight visit. The beach and the cottages are magical. We stayed in the Beachcomber Cottage (38) October 15-18, 2013, Room C, and loved it! The room is small and simple, furnished with only a double bed and a small dresser. It has one window which we...
