"The Retreat offers a subtle combination of features that are difficult to come by in Laguna individually. That they're combined in one location adds significant value and convenience. Foremost, The Retreat is ocean front. Rolling waves are seen and heard off the deck with pelicans, whales and dolphins swimming past. The views are exquisite. Second, it offers on-site parking. Anyone familiar with the area knows parking in town is often a nightmare. Free parking at the location makes walking to shops, restaurants and galleries very easy. Never underestimate the luxury of strolling through a crowded beach town while everyone else is stuck on PCH. Finally, it is secluded and quiet. Many accommodations in Laguna are on or near busy streets where traffic noise is unavoidable. The Retreat's location on a quiet alley is remarkably peaceful given the high-density nature of beach neighborhoods.
The rooms and amenities themselves are equally impressive. Each suite is impeccably furnished in a grand style and the on-site staff is always eager to satisfy their guests' requests. They've made available sand chairs, beach towels, extra beds even toy shovels and pails for the children. In these ways it is much more like a hotel than a VRBO property. However, there's a high degree of independence the property affords. There are full kitchens with real appliances and refrigerators with ice makers and BBQ grills. There is no turn-down service or daily maid services but one can request additional cleaning for a fee. Frankly, I rather prefer not to have a cleaning staff in every day nosing around my things or asking me when I plan to leave so they might return.
In essence The Retreat is perhaps the very best vacation stay in Laguna! Book early."

"We had a great break from the heat in July 2014 at this very clean and cute home on Corona just up the hill from SC beach! We really enjoyed the multiple outdoor patio spaces at the home with ocean views! Its a very charming historical home! The owner was very helpful and the real estate agent Briand was Great! We would definitely stay again! CW"

"My husband and I got married in Laguna Beach and rented this beautiful house for our family. The house was very spacious for all if us and very clean. It is located in a really nice neighborhood and has spectacular views. We all enjoyed our stay and created wonderful memories there. Brian was awesome and great to work with. He was very helpful and made sure that we had a pleasant stay."

"We spent a week at the Bamboo Loft. The owners were very responsive from start to finish and live on the property so there if you need them but not at all intrusive and very friendly. The apartment is on the second floor facing an alley so it was very quiet and private. It was immaculately clean and has a fully stocked kitchen. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. Location is great, steps to the beach. There is one parking space that is essential in this area. Our only complaint is that the Internet connection was very slow/weak but we learned from a local merchant that this is the case in most of Seal Beach."
