We really enjoyed the location--very close to the beach, also close enough to downtown Laguna to walk. Plenty of shops/restaurants within blocks. The property is very well-maintained, did not lack for any essentials. This will be our first choice when we return to Laguna. Much better than a hotel stay!
We had a fabulous 4 days at Cress beach. Any thing that we needed to make our stay better was provided to us.
We were a party of five. My Husband and I and 3 teen-to adult kids.
The pictures that are listed are accurate. This unit is steps from the public beach access stairs and you can see the ocean clearly from the living room. There is a small alley way (the garage is under the unit and is pretty small but is enclosed) and then another row of houses directly in front of the unit though, so you can only see the ocean in that direction but I didn't mind this. The unit was very clean and had everything on the inventory list except the computer. (stated the comp/wi-fi was not working properly). We had brought our own so no big deal. This unit is the closest to the front gate and sidewalk which was a good and bad thing. Proximity to the beach was awesome. No lugging tons of stuff down, since it was so close. Down side was the street is used heavily for delivery trucks and the public access area which is just feet from the front outside sitting area & living room windows is a smoking area for locals and visitors alike causing us to have to come inside and shut the windows until they cleared out.
All in all its a beautiful view and very close to lots of shops. Its about a 20-25 min walk to the main part of Laguna Beach where the volley ball area and the downtown area. Just a five min drive if you don't mind searching for a parking spot and have plenty of quarters for the meter. It was very crowded most places not sure if it's always like that or just this certain month. Also the area was very pet friendly most people seemed to have brought their dogs and lots of the shops were fine with pets coming in so not sure why this property doesn't allow pets. I would be more apt to come back if they did.
The property management was very nice and helpful.
