Most people dream of one day experiencing the golden state’s beautiful scenery, surfing the waves and tanning on famous beaches as depicted in Hollywood movies. Typically, a California getaway is costly but there are options where lower cost doesn’t have to mean lower quality. Here are my two favourite locations for an amazing, yet affordable, California coastal stay.
Laguna Beach house
Known as one of the best Laguna Beach hotels, the Laguna Beach house has everything in one lovely package. Bring your bike or rent one to enjoy California’s best known and most popular hiking and biking trails. In the late 1800’s, nature lovers made regular pilgrimages through the canyons to camp at Laguna Beach each summer. By 1903, Laguna with its beautiful vistas, was a popular tourist destination attracting artists like flies to honey. For those who love flora and fauna or simply enjoy scenic walks and well-manicured gardens, visit Heisler Park. From the vantage point above the water, watch crashing waves and take in a breathtaking sunset. It’s also a lovely spot of a picnic which can be arranged by the staff at the Inn.
Laguna Beach house offers direct access to the water for surfing and paddle boarding and don’t forget the tide pools. See nature up close and personal by walking the beach and examining or photographing these intricate and amazing eco-systems.
With all the outdoor activities, one might think you’d never go indoors but you’ll enjoy your lovely room with incredible views and the impeccable service of Laguna Beach house. Each day is started with rich aromatic coffee and ends with milk and cookies. That sweet little service alone makes staying here a must-do.
The Inn at Laguna Beach
Explore amazing art galleries, go shopping and enjoy lively but relaxed nightlife before returning to your luxury boutique style room at The Inn at Laguna Beach. This place is a true California Classic, seamlessly blending the beach bungalow feel with all modern comforts desired. Your room will have shutters but using them to block the views of the Pacific would be absurd. You’ll want to keep curtains and shutters wide open and not miss a thing. California dreaming takes on a whole new meaning when sleeping in a coastal room while listening to waves break on the beach.
This amazing Laguna Beach hotel is just steps away from Main Beach, where Hollywood stars such as Bette Davis, Judy Garland, Charlie Chaplin and Mickey Rooney among others, had homes. Main Beach is the most popular stretch of beach for miles in California. With its mostly sandy bottom, this historic beach is a must-visit for those wishing to try their skills swimming, body surfing or simply revisiting times gone by.
The Pacific Terrace Bar, located high above Main Beach is the perfect location for enjoying stunning views of Laguna Beach and refreshing your senses with a cocktail. Listen to the crashing waves and dine al fresco, ordering from Las Brisas’ famous and varied menu.
Whether you stay at Laguna Beach house or Inn at Laguna Beach, you’ll experience the marvels of California coastal life. Upon returning home with such glowing reports, your friends will want to go next and waste no time doing so. Each boutique style accommodation offers incredible wonders of the golden state while remaining affordable.
The only question remaining is when will you arrange a trip to California and book a room?
