We've been vacationing in Laguna Beach for more than 10 years and, in terms of location, this is the best rental we've stayed at. You are right in town - within minutes of the beach, restaurants, shopping and grocery stores. We only used our car when we went on day trips out of town. The condo is spacious and offers plenty of room. It has great A/C for warm days. We encountered a clogged shower drain on the first day but it was dealt with quickly and professionally and we didn't have any further issues during our stay. Reasons we didn't give this review five stars: unit is a little dated, but clean. (The kitchen is new and modern, and the exception.) There is no onsite washer and dryer, however there is a nearby laundromat (walkable) with same-day drop-off wash and fold services. Showers are tiny and may not be able to accommodate some people. For our family, this unit was more than adequate, and the competitive price and location more than made up for some minor inconveniences. It is deserving of four stars and we'd definitely book it again. Thank you Pam!
