It’s like your own private living room only a few feet from the ocean!@PacificEdge Hotel in Laguna Beach has amazing bungalows you can rent for a rad day at the beach! You can enter to win your own "daycation!" #pacificedgelagunaThe Pacific Edge Hotel (a Joie de Vivre Hotel – the same cool peeps that own the Saguaros in Palm Springs and Scottsdale!) is located about half a mile from Main Beach in Laguna Beach. Their hotel rooms have recently undergone a refresh but what I’m super excited about, especially for you locals, is their private bungalows! The hotel has 5 bungalows, each designed by a local company that you can rent for day use. Arrive right at 11 am to make sure you get the most out of your beach day. And since you don’t have to “check out” until 8 pm, you will really get to take advantage of your ocean view. The private bungalows at @PacificEdge Hotel are perfect for family days but would also be so fun with your girlfriends! #pacificedgelagunaThe hotel recently invited a few of us bloggers, and our kids, to come spend a few hours at the beach to check out the bungalows. Every single detail is thought of. From the crazy cool designs in each room, to the attendants that make sure you are well taken care of. This is THE way to do the beach. And you can enter the hotel’s giveaway for a ‘daycation’ below!The @gorjanabrand bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel Laguna Beach is absolutely stunning! The decor is coastal chic  and super homey. #pacificedgelagunaLocal jewelry designer, Gorjana Griffin, recently did a refresh on their bungalow and it is absolutely stunning! Everything in the room was coastal inspired with all these great layered textures and the prettiest color palette. The rooms seriously look like they are straight out of a home design magazine. Coastal decor in the @gorjanabrand bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel Laguna Beach. #pacificedgelagunaThe rooms are not huge, but have seating for at least 7 people plus you have a private patio right outside the door with deck furniture.  The rooms are super comfortable and I have no idea how they keep everything looking so nice considering these are being used by people getting wet and sandy on the beach below. (You can see a better view of this full room in Mary’s instagram post – bottom right corner).@PacificEdge Hotel is the best beach hotel in Orange County! The hotel offers rentable bungalows for enjoying a day at the beach in style. #pacificedgelagunaEach room has air conditioning and a flat screen TV making this a great spot for the kids (or you) to take a break from the sun (although I didn’t check to see if they get Bravo…).The Sailor Jerry Bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel is amazing! It's super cool and is like having your own private living room steps from the ocean! #pacificedgelagunaThe rooms also feature a kitchen area with fridge stocked with beverages to keep you hydrated. No outside food is allowed, but The Deck on Laguna Beach (one of two restaurants that are part of the hotel) can take care all of your food and beverage needs. This bungalow is designed by the Sailor Jerry Rum company. Notice that the colors are a bit darker and more masculine and a totally different vibe than the one I previously shared with you above. Bungalow rentals at the @PacificEdge Hotel include a living room with air conditioning and flat screen TV, a kitchen area, private bathroom, a private deck and so much more! #pacificedgelagunaHow relaxing does this look!!!! Hotel staff says that people rent these bungalows for a fantastic family beach day but also for bridal showers, or sometimes even to watch Sunday Football! I might even watch football if I got to watch it in one of these. The other three bungalows are designed by Fox, Billabong and XS. The Sailor Jerry bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel has it's own pinball machine to keep the kids entertained. #pacificedgelagunaThe Sailor Jerry room also has this cool vintage pinball machine that the kids couldn’t get enough of.When you rent a private bungalow at @pacificedge Hotel in Laguna Beach, you get a gorgeous bathroom plus kitchen area and private patio. #pacificedgelagunaAnd each room comes with a legit bathroom. This is strictly for use by those people in your bungalow with you. Which means this isn’t your typical beach bathroom. Like a normal hotel room, shampoo, conditioner and soap is provided. How awesome that you can take a quick shower to clean up before dinner if you want! My kids rinsed off in here after getting super sandy at the beach which meant I didn’t have to return home with half the beach in my car. Rent a private bungalow in Laguna Beach at the @PacificEdge Hotel! You can enter to win a "daycation" too! #pacificedgelagunaOnce you arrive at your bungalow, you don’t need to go anywhere, for anything. You will have a server to help you with all your food and beverage ordering. Best food and service by The Deck in Laguna Beach at the @PacificEdge Hotel. #pacificedgelagunaThe food from The Deck on Laguna Beach was SO delicious! This is certainly not how I usually eat while at the beach. But guess what, now that I know it’s available, I think I only want to do the beach this way…Enjoy a delicious cocktail from The Deck on Laguna on the private deck of your bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel. #pacificedgelagunaBecause cocktails. Alcohol is not allowed on the sand (although you can get food and regular beverages delivered right to your lounge chair), but you can enjoy one of the Deck’s specialty cocktails in your bungalow or on your patio. I mean, that view totally doesn’t suck. The drink didn’t either.This delicious lunch is served in bungalow,  by The Deck on Laguna Beach at the @PacificEdge Hotel. #pacificedgelagunaThere are lunch options to please everyone including the kids. This caprese was fresh and perfect for a beach side lunch. The burger looked crazy good and that mac and cheese was good enough for me to steal from my son. The kids are treated like VIP's in the private bungalows at the @PacificEdge Hotel Laguna Beach. #pacificedgelagunaDid I mention dessert? Along with the plated dessert options available on the menu, they also have ice cream bars for the kids. The kids definitely enjoyed the cold treat on a this hot day! Beachside service at the @PacificEdge Hotel in Laguna Beach. #pacificedgelagunaGetting to have an attendant set out a beach lounger for you is such a luxury. And look how close you are to the water. This is the perfect situation for sitting and relaxing while still being able to keep your eye on your kids playing in the water.
Family beach day in Laguna Beach. @pacificedge #pacificedgelagunaIt’s the best of everything. You get waited on and your kids get to get crazy in the water. This beach is private for the hotel so although there are people walking past, the area in front of the hotel is not that crowded. I have to be honest. I have never really taken my kids to the beach. And we live 20 minutes away. There is so much to schlep. With my skin cancer issues I shouldn’t be in the sun and I don’t understand how to lug and use a beach umbrella. You have to take lunch and snacks and drinks. And you are usually parking a long way from where you will end up. But THIS makes perfect sense to me. While we can’t afford to do this all the time, it certainly makes the idea of the beach possible for me.  Family fun in Laguna Beach. You should totally rent a bungalow at the @PacificEdge Hotel. It's like having your own living room right at the beach. Including a private bathroom with shower. #pacificedgelagunaSeeing how happy my kids were playing in the water confirmed that we need to visit the beach more. And seeing as I got married in Laguna Beach, this is and always has been our favorite beach. Spend a great family day at the beach at @pacificedge Hotel's private beach! The best way to do the beach with kids! #pacificedgelagunaBut then this makes me think otherwise…Blogger Playdate at the @PacificEdge Hotel in Laguna Beach, #pacificedgelagunaWe had such an amazing time getting to check out the bungalows at The Pacific Edge Hotel. Thank you to the hotel and staff who treated us like VIPs all day long as we enjoyed the surf and sand. Check out the hashtag #pacificedgelaguna on social media to see more pics from our fun day!

Now let’s talk pricing really quickly. The rates for these bungalows change based on the time of year and the day of the week. At the moment (July, 2015) rates start at $250 for weekdays and can be about $500 for weekends. Remember you can fit about 10-12 people per bungalow so you could easily split this cost among families or girlfriends. This price does NOT include food (again, minimums depend on several factors), gratuities or parking (over 1 car per bungalow). It’s best to check with the hotel for exact pricing and availability I just wanted you to know going in what the costs are so you can plan accordingly. I’m in the process of planning a girl’s day out here and the cost is totally worth it (as long as no one flakes out and I’m stuck with the remainder of the bill…)The food in the Bungalows at the @PacificEdge Hotel in Laguna Beach is provided by The Deck,  the only open air restaurant on the water in Laguna. And the food is AMAZING! #pacificedgelagunaDon’t you want to spend a beach day in one of the bungalows? Enter the contest via the hotel’s rafflecopter widget below!
