The patio is the place to be at this cottage. You will have a front-row vista of the ocean. There’s a grill, too, for some quality time with family or friends. The property is designed in blue and green colors, all rooms feature an AC, and the fully equipped kitchen allows you to save money on restaurants. Sleepy Hollow Beach is just across the street, and Downtown Laguna is easily reachable on foot. The super-central location comes at the price of being situated next to the road. If you can tolerate that, this property is a gem. If you’re a light sleeper, take this fact into consideration.
