I rented unit H-5 for 4 days in August. I rented directly from the owner who is very easy to rent from. The unit is in the middle of the complex and only takes about 5-6 minutes to walk to the beach. I loved this condo. I took cleaning supplies because you never know how clean a condo will be,... More

My family decided to take a few days away for some rest and relaxation. This place was very nice, quit and something for everyone. The condos are located across the beach but the walk is not bad. You can drive down to the office and park in a visitor place to make the walk easier on you. Getting to the... More

My family of five stayed June 6-11, 2016. We started out confused. I'll explain why. We rented from someone who goes through Panhandle. At first we rented at another resort for 18B. On our last payment we didn't notice the owner had traded our place for Portside. So when we go to use the code on the door it doesn't... More

We stayed in W4, booked via VRBO. It is located in the very back of the complex, farthest from the beach. The owner is nice, the condo clean, comfortable (except the master bed is very uncomfortable and must be 20 years old) and spacious with 2 bedrooms (one King, 2 twin) and 2.5 bath. There's a washer and dryer. The... More

It is to bad the owners cannot write reviews on the renters. This renter broke a picture and a large replica of a pelican was broken , the condo was left nasty. This person goes around writing comments on business's. I guess they receive something from this site. They gave the Statue of Liberty a one star , do I... More

We stayed at this condo before because it is right across the street from the beach. We like staying in W4 because it is in the back of the complex so you don't get all of the main street noise, and because the owner is wonderful and keeps the condo clean and in such great shape. The condo previously had... More

The resort is nice and quiet. The only reason I can not give them above a 3 is because the ad said the townhouse had a queen and King bed. Not so! They were both full size beds. The front desk office was always closed during their open hours of 8-5. So it made it impossible for the kids to... More

The overall facility is a nice place. It has 3 nice pools and it's a nice little community. It can be a long walk to get to the beach if your unit isn't close to the road. We stayed in unit J-2 and we weren't very pleased. The carpets which once were off-white were almost black in traffic areas and... More

The condo was nice especially for the kids! Pools were in good condition and it's right across the street from the beach which was also nice and it wasn't a busy part of Laguna Beach. If you don't need to be in the middle of convenience then this is the place. I'll be back!
