While looking into places to stay while in Laguna Beach, I stumbled across the Manzanita Cottages online. This place just looked too unique not to try. We studied the four different cottages and decided on the Red one. From the time we arrived, we knew we had made the right decision. The cottage was so cute and very clean. We loved having our own little house while there. So much better than a single room in a hotel...and better priced. Being able to go and sit in the courtyard near the wishing well...late in the afternoon...with a drink...was wonderful! The only change I would have made in the cottage was to have all sheets and pillowcases match. They already had quality towels in the bathrooms and just needed to update the sheets....but the bed was very comfortable. Diane was wonderful to us and even gave us suggestions on parking when we had my nephew and his three beautiful little girls come for a visit one afternoon. And in fact my nephew is now talking about bringing his wife there sometime, as he loved it as well. The walk to town or the beach was not an issue for us. In fact we actually enjoyed the exercise and it allowed us to go and visit the ice cream shop without guilt. :) Our goal is to go back enough times to try out the other three cottages. Just loved this place! Thanks for everything Diane!
