Carrie Bradshaw Lied Takes a "Staycation"

Carrie Bradshaw may be a household name but life and style blogger Kathleen Barnes from Carrie Bradshaw Lied takes a more realistic approach to living the good life!

Kathleen and her husband Christian escaped to the Pacific Edge Hotel for what we locals love to call a STAYCATION!

"Usually when we travel...we spend so much time researching the area - from extracurricular activities to restaurants, beaches, hikes and so on. With a STAYCATION, you don't have to worry about any of that - you know the area, and instead get to see your town as an outsider. Honestly - it's so much fun!" 

During their stay, Kathleen loved sleeping to the sound of the waves crashing, as she describes is "what dreams are made of." Her hubby especially enjoyed taking in the surf only a few steps away every morning and collectively dining at the Driftwood Kitchen (which has recently been nominated as "Best Restaurant of the Year" by the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce.) 

"The hotel embodies the California vibe, blending surf and beach cottage...the whole weekend has me thinking I need a little condo on the beach. Dreamy!" 

And while we think Kathleen's photos from her stay are "dreamy" -- we can all agree that Pacific Edge Hotel is the perfect spot to getaway from your everyday life and enjoy a "staycation" at the beach!

Allison Maginn Photography

As they say, you know when you’ve found the ONE … and finding the perfect beachfront location for your Southern California wedding should be just as simple!

At Pacific Edge Hotel, we believe that your special day should be just as unique as you. Our intimate event spaces offer a picture perfect backdrop to set your love story in motion. Your beach wedding will be set against the backdrop of oceanfront views of our private Laguna beach and the rolling waves the Pacific Ocean ... just steps away!

Beach-House Chic
If a beach house atmosphere is what you desire, our Villa Living Room is the place for you. Nestled directly above the famed Deck restaurant, The Villa boasts French doors that open up to breathtaking views of the Pacific Coast. This intimate space is completely transformational and includes an oversized fireplace for a truly cozy environment. Say your “I Dos” in front of your closest friends and family or create a lovely reception, engagement soiree, or rehearsal dinner for your bridal party, overlooking the ocean.

Sunset & Surf
Want a sunset ceremony at the beach? Pacific Edge Hotel can accommodate reception celebrations on the Bungalow Deck or Deck Restaurant to accommodate your wedding size.

We love hosting life’s most special moments. Consider our home, yours!

Cupcakes & Cutlery Day at the Beach

Who doesn't LOVE a day at the Beach? Cupcakes & Cutlery joined us for a "daycation" to take in the Pacific Edge Hotel experience! 

Here's what Sharon had to say about the photo above: "This rad view is what you will see off your private patio in front of your private bungalow. What is a bungalow exactly? It’s like your own private living room only a few feet from the ocean!"  - We love this quote! The bungalows are exactly that! 

Cupcakes & Cutlery took some amazing photos during their stay! We can tell Sharon and her kids had a wonderful time enjoying the Pacific Coast and the luxury amenities that PEH offers to our Bungalow guests.

In just one day - you can feel like a VIP. Sharon mentioned that although they live only 20 miles away from the beach, it can be hard to schlep all your stuff to the beach with kids - which is the burden PEH takes away! We have everything you need for a daycation right here on site and the staff to take care of your every need! 

We can't thank Sharon and her darling boys enough for sharing their "daycation" with us! Make sure you check out Cupcakes & Cutlery and follow them on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram

Travelfluential Dream Daycation

"This summer we vowed not only to go to the beach - but to make it special."

Well, there's no place like the Bungalows at Pacific Edge Hotel to make a day at the beach SUPER SPECIAL. Travelfluential blogger Angela (also known as Momfluential and Latinafluential) took her daughters and son on a "daycation" to Pacific Edge Hotel.  As expected, they had a blast "watching the tide, soaking up the sun, and relaxing in a chic beachfront day suite."

While her Teenfluentials (see a pattern here) found the beachfront Bungalows to be a chic "mini-paradise," her son made new friends in the sand while Mom relaxed with cocktails! An oceanfront lunch by The Deck brought the family together to share in a delicious meal during their Laguna Beach daycation.

It's a dream that we can DAYCATION year-round in California. Join us any day in the Bungalows! Reserve online or call for availability - 949.281.5711.
