It takes luck to get a reservation for one of the Crystal Cove Beach Cottages. We were in Cottage 32 which is a few steps from the beach, has fantastic views, and is close to the restaurant. The cottage has been carefully restored to what it must have been like in the 1920s. Consistent with that it has very steep...

We were lucky enough to walk in and get a room in one of the cottages right on the beach during an epic wind and rain storm. By the time we got down the many stairs to the "quarters" we were soaked. Then the car had to be moved to the parking lot. OK! A memorable experience and an excellent...

The location is amazing! On the pristine shore of Crystal Cove State Park. The cottages are charming and beautiful, though the beds and appliances haven't been updated in decades. Despite that, if you can get a reservation, it's a must!

Joined our family who live here for a sunset bonfire on the beach. We made reservations and they set everything up wonderfully. Chairs, fire pits and server included. They provided all ingredients for smores and brought beverages upon arrival. What an amazing night with a great sunset and family. Highly recommend you check this out !

We Love Crystal Cove and the Historic Beach Cottages This was our third overnight stay and one of Many visits to the beach. Paradise Lodge is actually on the bluff, overlooking the beach. It is a dorm style cabin with 3 bedrooms. We stayed in "C" which does not have an ocean view, but does have it's own bathroom. Just...

We stayed at the cute little yellow cottage #40 November 11-13 2016. The weather was great and the views from the beach front porch were amazing. It is a tiny studio cottage with a twin bed and a full bed. The bathroom is huge and the little kitchen provides all you need. It has a toaster, microwave, and small fridge....

I have spent the last 25 years in Southern California. I used to do a triathlon at Crystal Cove many years back. A few years ago Crystal Cove became a state park. It was the best thing that the state of California has ever done in my humble opinion. We normally camp at Crystal Cove but we were lucky enough...

Have not yet stayed at Crystal Cove, learned of the properties until August of 2016, able to reserve cottage 19A in March of 2017 for 3 nights. My experience is to reserve these quaint one of a kind cottages, is to be diligent. I was able to secure a 3 night stay on September 13, 2016. So, in my opinion,...

My friends and I spent the day at Crystal Cove beach. What a glorious day. The water was cool.....and very refreshing after baking in the sun. A great day for boogie boarding and swimming in the ocean. There is a bar and restaurant near the sand. There is a Ruby's diner up the steps. Lots of memorabilia...like the cottage from...

I love coming to Crystal Cove for getaways with my husband. Sometimes we even let the family come along! This was the first time we had stayed in summer and it was surprising to see such a crowded beach. So many colorful umbrellas and families equipped to stay all day and take advantage of this beautiful place. In summer the...

“Carefully read each cottage description. It may not have an ocean view. It may (most likely) require a steep staircase to access the room.”
