A Daycation to Remember at the #PacificEdgeHotel and Giveaway

A Day in Paradise

A Day in Paradise

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to check out the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach. I love Southern California and the Pacific Edge Hotel is pure Southern California. It’s a beautiful beach front hotel, with the most pristine waterfront beach. It’s absolute paradise!

The Pacific Edge Hotel has the most amazing beach!

I’ve stayed at the hotel a few times before and let me just say that it is hands down one of my favorite hotels in the world. It is an amazing place and I love to stay there at least once a year.  Two years ago we stayed there all of Spring Break and it was such an amazing stay. I can’t wait to do it again.

Sometimes it’s hard to get away for more than a day and one day is all you have. I call this, daycationing. The kids and I packed a bag and headed down to the Pacific Edge for a beautiful daycation in one of their beautiful bungalows. The private, beachfront Bungalows are perfect for the most amazing day at the beach or to celebrate a special occasion. I’m turning 40 in a two months and am planning on celebrating my birthday there. Words or photos can’t really begin to describe how magical the bungalows really are.

The Beach Bungalows are So Cal Paradise and have every comfort you can think of

Each bungalow includes a comfortable living room that overlooks the ocean, a VIP Bungalow Host, a private bathroom with shower, bar area, valet parking, catered food and beverages, and a private deck area. You can order food from the Deck Restaurant. The food my friends is out of this world. My kiddos were in absolute heaven!!

You can rent one Bungalow for up to ten guests, or reserve all five for a very special oceanfront event.

Bungalow rentals include:

  • Fully private bungalow with keyed access from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Bungalow VIP Host at your service
  • Catering from The Deck, Bottle service and more
  • Air conditioning and flat screen televisions
  • Direct access to the hotel’s private beach
  • Beach Attendant to set up lounge chairs, day beds, umbrellas, and beach towel

 

The Deck restaurant has quite the menu. I would eat there everyday if I could.

The Bungalows also have direct access to the Pacific Edge Beach. You won’t ever have to worry about bringing towels, sand toys, or a chair. Everything is provided for you by a beach concierge. It is the ultimate beach trip. I remember watching the kiddos playing on the sand and having to pinch myself. I felt like I was at an exclusive resort in Hawaii.

Bungalow day rates start at $250 for weekdays and $450 on weekends, not including food & beverage minimums, and are subject to availability. Rates also vary by season.

You can share with 10 to 12 people and I think it’s perfect to split the cost with a group of friends. It is an incredible experience.

We’re excited to be able to giveaway a Bungalow daycation to one very lucky reader. Just click on the rafflecopter widget below and you’ll be entered for a chance to stay at this incredible place. Good luck friends! This is one giveaway I wish I could enter!

(Disclosure: This is not a compensated post. I was invited to spend an afternoon at one of the Pacific Edge Bungalows. However, all opinions are my very own and I absolutely love the Pacific Edge Hotel)

Sawdust Festival Fun

Sawdust Festival Fun

One of our favorite summer traditions is taking a little trip to Laguna Beach and having fun at the different summer art festivals. The Sawdust Art Festival is our favorite. We try to visit at least once, but usually wind up going back more than once because our entire family has so much fun.

There are a variety of classes for both children and adults. Last year both kids had the opportunity to try their hand at the potter’s wheel and created their own little pots. They had so much fun and it was super cheap. The class is free, and all you have to do is pay for the firing/glazing.

The Children’s Art Festival offer a variety of free projects for the little ones. The classes for adults and children older than 6  are either free or  there is a small fee for materials. I’ve really wanted to take a jewelry making class and hopefully I can take one in August.

We love the festival and I know you will too. It’s fun for the entire family. There is live music, food, and features more than 200 local artists. To check out the schedule of classes head here.

The Summer Sawdust Festival runs through September 1st, and is open everyday from 10am to 10pm. For additional info head here.
