I have brought my whole family to Laguna Vista many times. It it always our first choice when we get together. The location is perfect and the houses are each very nice. We have great memories..I was there last week with 1 of my daughters and her friend. It was perfect. We get great service. Someone is always available if we need anything.
Can't wait to go back.

The weekend at 150 cress in Laguna Beach started with a recognition that we were in a great house with great amenities but as always. Location location location. We went for a walk within 1 hour on the beach it was fantastic to be right at the ocean
Next was the evenin at the roof bar to etch the sunset an mingle with various people
Saturday was miraculous. 3 whale spouts. One breach and seals and dolphins. Sunday was restful and Monday reenergized
Thank you so much Mr.Adler. We will see you guys again in the future!

We stayed here with our grown children (family of 6 adults) and found it comfortable, clean and close to both the beach and lots of shops and restaurants. We only needed a car to drive to Dana Point for our dolphin tour and to a more sandy beach area farther south in Laguna. Beach access is easy (as long as you can navigate lots of stairs) and there were lots of great restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops and even a darling bookstore within walking distance. Nice sunset view from park bench on Cress Cove but area did seem a bit congested with cars and foot traffic for it to feel very private.
Hotel just across alley had a great bar and upstairs deck perfect for cocktails and appetizers while watching the pelicans fly over or the sunset!
