Frequently Asked Questions

We are only 0.5 miles from Main Beach! (click here for a map)

We welcome children of all ages. We often have families that rent the entire property for reunions and other gatherings. Our proximity to the beach, and village, provides great lodging for kids who are old enough to strike out on their own. Laguna has successfully maintained a small town atmosphere and the village is safe for kids to move about independently. They especially enjoy the surf shops, candy store, movie theater, and of course watching the intense basketball and volleyball games at Main Beach. It’s also nice to have the municipal pool right around the corner from the rental cottages.

The cottages are all the same size and floor plan. Each cottage has a master bedroom with a king-size bed. There is a queen size sleeper sofa in each each living room (they are new this year and very comfortable). Depending on the ages and nature of relationships a party can sleep two in the bedroom and two in the sleeper sofa. We generally limit the occupancy to four people per cottage, but make exceptions if there are small children. We can also provide an aero bed to add some flexibility.

The studio apartment has a queen-size bed and can accommodate no more that two people.
