I love coming to Crystal Cove for getaways with my husband. Sometimes we even let the family come along! This was the first time we had stayed in summer and it was surprising to see such a crowded beach. So many colorful umbrellas and families equipped to stay all day and take advantage of this beautiful place. In summer the... More

Great location right on the beach. You can watch your kids from the balcony. Six of us stayed. Only inconvenience was it had only one bathroom. Bring a camping stove to minor cooking. The prices at the Ruby's Shake Shack and the Beachcomber were very reasonable and the food was great. Get the special Bloody Mary at the Beachcomber.

Stayed in cottage 40 which is small unit with two beds (single and double). Location probably the closest to the ocean and close to Beachcombers (restaurant/bar about 100 feet away). The restaurant noise didn't disturb us despite this being one of the most busy stretches of beach. For those of us who don't own beachfront homes, this is a great... More

We were lucky enough to book our second stay at the Shell Shack with a view overlooking the beach. Days pass calmly here from sunrise to sunset, with the sound of the pounding surf always keeping time. The Shell Shack offers the catbird seat, with the peaceful view of daybreak over the ocean and later lots of people-watching as crowds... More

I have enjoyed many stays in various dorm rooms at the Cottages, but this was my first individual cottage getaway. Two differences I noted immediately: more privacy (of course) and more storage space. Cottage 14 is on the beach, just south of the historic district and the tide pools are nearly directly in front. The cottage is approached by a... More

If you want to step back in time relax by the sound of the waves. This is the place to be. Very hard to get a cottage you have to book six months in advance, if you're lucky enough to get one. You have to get on line the first of each month to book. They go fast so good... More

I can't say enough good things about Crystal Cove! Before you decide to stay, please remember this is not a hotel with room service; being prepared is important! Here are some things we have learned: Even though the check in is rather late, you can always come early for lunch at the Shake Shack or a walk on the beach... More

First, many reviews here state that reservations are taken 6 months in advance, which is incorrect. From their website: "Reservations must be made 2 Day(s) ahead of arrival and can be made up to 7 Month(s) in advance." For example, the next time-block will open for reservations on December 1st at 8am PST. The reservations will be for the month... More

Crystal Cove Beach Cottages are an amazing way to experience the beach, ocean and So Cal coast. Several cottages are steps from the beach. The cottages have been renovated over the last several years. During the early morning (before 8 a.m.) and in the evenings after 6 p.m., you feel like you are on your own private beach.

Great beach for families. Historic beach bungalows restored from the 20's, 30's, and 40's. Beachcomber restaurant is located there also with great bar drinks and food. Need to reserve a cottage way in advance! Day tripping is one of the best ways o get a feel for the place as well as get information about the state park and rentals.
