A Day on the Beach in a Pacific Edge Hotel Bungalow

Best Family Hotel in Laguna Beach

imagine spending the day enjoying this breathtaking view. turquoise water, crashing waves, sunshine and warm sand. that was my day a few weeks ago. it was heavenly. growing up in the OC, i am definitely a beach girl. we re so lucky to have many beaches to enjoy. Laguna beaches are among some of my favorite…the beauty of the rocky cliffs paired with clear blue waters make them really special. on this particular day, i was treated to a day at the Pacific Edge Hotel Bungalows, which are located on the Laguna Beach sands overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Bungalows are part of the Pacific Edge Hotel where i have stayed before…you can check out my stay here.


the Pacific Edge Hotel Bungalows are stylized oceanfront indoor/outdoor daytime spaces that offer a unique beach experience. they are perfect for any social gathering, from corporate meetings, bridal showers, baby showers, bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, or a “daycation” with friends and family. anyone can rent them daily from the Pacific Edge Hotel.

    I need a staycation so bad. For the last couple of years I’ve been my dad’s only caregiver. I have two amazing kiddos that live at home and my awsome husband. Now that my dad is on Hospice and nurses come in the house to help, it would be a wonderful time to visit such a beautiful place to bond with my family and re-engerize. #pacificedgelaguna #giveaway

  2. Florianne says

    Who wouldn’t want a nice relaxing day on the beach… in a private bungalow, sand in your toes, the sun in your face and sea breeze flowing through your hair…Um HELLO!? I WOULD! 🙂 #PacificEdgeEscape #giveaway

    Well … Over a year ago while living in Texas, I received a phone call and was told my gramma was very sick and may not be around for more than two weeks.
    My son and I (single parent) dropped everything and drove out to California. We arrived on Mother’s Day 2014 and have been here ever since. We have all worked really hard toward helping with rehabilitation and have made a little progress our other focus is to make sure she is as comfortable as possible.
    My gramma is 82 years old and even though the beach is only an hour and a half away, I don’t think she’s seen it in person for probably 40 years. You see, she has worked 2-3 jobs her whole life and always put other peoples needs before her own.
    My son, my gramma and myself sure could use a bit of respite from the daily stress and worry.
    This has been one of the toughest years of my life. Being a full time caregiver is one of the most difficult jobs I’ve ever had, emotionally and physically.
    I would love to see my grandmother smile and enjoy a full day at the beach and this situation would be perfect. Out of the direct sunlight and inside with air conditioning, yet still able to enjoy being there.
    If I could afford it I would pay for us to go myself but I’ve spent every bit of savings over the last year while taking care of my family.
