Fun in the Sun with your Pint-Sized VIP

There is no place like Laguna Beach for a summer vacation!  Pacific Edge Hotel offers the comforts of home for your entire family, along with the luxury of having the Pacific Coast right in your backyard.

Beach Like a VIP
Let the little tykes ride the wave with our Pint-Sized VIP package, created to make our youngest guests feel VERY special. Not only will the family roll up in style to complimentary, overnight valet parking but your kiddos will be welcomed with a tasty treat from Laguna’s very own iconic candy shoppe, “The Candy Baron.” And since we can’t have any hungry “Very Important Persons” on our (or your) hands, we’ll take care of that with complimentary breakfast for those under 12. We’ll also make sure they stay busy on the beach (while mom and dad get that much needed R&R) with our “Build your own Sand Mansion Kit” to entertain and inspire their fun in the sun!

Why Pacific Edge Hotel?
Pacific Edge Hotel offers a range of accommodations from beachfront ocean views to our more economical village rooms, which are truly just steps away from the sand and surf. Fully equipped, two bedroom apartments are also available and include living/dining spaces and a kitchenette for your family’s needs. We expect you to take advantage of all the Hotel’s amenities like complimentary pack and plays for the little ones; lounge chairs, umbrellas, and beach towels set for you on our private beach; two heated pools; ping pong table; and free wifi throughout the hotel. 

With countless outdoor and water activities in Laguna Beach at your utmost disposal, your destination vacation is really just a CLICK away!

"Bold simplicity is the keynote to good design."
- Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins - 1970

The Bungalow life at Pacific Edge Hotel continues with our latest design by California Native Erin King to celebrate the Sailor Jerry brand!

While we’re sure your familiar with the spirit, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, this Bungalow celebrates the life and style of Norman “Sailor Jerry” Collins, father of the old-school tattoo. Back in the 1920s, when most Americans were chasing the American Dream, Collins sought a life of freedom and wanderlust and left home to travel the country, hitchhiking and train hopping. It was during these adventures that Norman took to his craft and began working the needle and ink to create designs freehand…one poke at a time. After meeting and working with famed-artist Gib “Tatts” Thomas in Chicago and joining the Navy where he developed his lifelong love for ships, Collins settled in Honolulu and built his legacy tattooing sailors, inevitably becoming, “Sailor Jerry.” 

Designer Erin King was inspired by the freedom and individuality of old-school beach, tiki and surf culture as a way of life, including surfboards, motorcycles, hot rods, tattoos, guitars, and beach bbqs. And since Jerry tattooed in Hawaii when tiki culture became huge, she made this Bungalow a tiki lodge – bringing island past into the beach present.

Of course the Bungalow style is retro-beach chic and includes a 1960s pinball machine, art that pays homage to the Sailor Jerry aesthetic and a tiki bar to craft cocktails with the famous spiced-rum! Ahoy mateys!

Bungalow Spotlight: Sleepy Hollow

Inviting, soothing, and relaxing, The Sleepy Hollow Bungalow experience is casual, just like a day at the beach—with sand, sun, and surf. Designed by Tania Cassill Interior Design, the Bungalow’s color palette and theme is inspired by the art of one of Sleepy Hollow Group’s founding members, Wolfgang Bloch. Wolfgang’s art is a sublime, romantic interpretation of the Laguna coastline.

The Sleepy Hollow Group is a congregation of local designers and artists who share a love of the ocean, surf, outdoor lifestyle, and Laguna Beach. The group formed organically: each knowing one another through various connections. Amazingly enough, the group had a clear vision of what the Bungalow design needed to be. The Sleepy Hollow group is comprised of the following:
Tania Cassill of Tania Cassill Interior Design - A Laguna Beach resident for most of the past 40 years, Tania Cassill offers 20-plus years of experience in fashion and interior design, creating beautiful, functional spaces that are both comfortable and match her clients’ lifestyles.

Wolfgang Bloch - Wolfgang Bloch has lived in Laguna Beach for more than 20 years. His work has been exhibited in the pages of major international publications and on the walls of galleries and museums across the globe, including the Laguna Art Museum.

Bret Englander of the Cerno Group - Cerno is comprised of three childhood best friends, all born and raised in Laguna Beach. After pursuing different academic and professional paths, they reunited in their hometown and started a design and manufacturing company of modern LED light fixtures —100% made in the Laguna Beach.

Kerry Cassill of Paisley Label by Kerry Cassill at Lala - The local KC boutique is owned and operated by Kerry Cassill, a longtime Laguna business owner and resident. Her original designs are made from hand-blocked organic fabric and can be found all over the USA.

Joe Pfeifer of Vintage Wood Floor Company - Joe Pfeifer’s company has provided reclaimed and vintage wood beams, flooring, and various other wood elements to many Laguna residents.

“I love Laguna Beach and couldn’t imagine raising our family anywhere else. We are a tight-knit community—much like a village. We band together to help each other in times of need, we reach out when we need help, we celebrate together, and we take pride in our beautiful beach town. Our unique landscape of rocky coves, beautiful beaches, and rolling hills sets us apart from all of our neighboring communities.” —Wolfgang Bloch
