Perfect Location and Accomodations
"I stayed at Jack's place for long weekend getaway with my friend and 3 teenage kids.. it was the perfect vacation. Jack was very accommodating with the reservation process. The apartment was perfect, even for 5 people. Kitchen was well stocked and furnishings were very comfortable. Washer and Dryer was a bonus. Outside patio was the best part of it - with nice views to the ocean and setting sun. There were beach towels, chairs and boogie boards available for use. The walk to Pacific Coast Highway (local route 1) was a little hike, but a very nice walk among beautiful overhanging trees and unique houses. I'd stay again in a heartbeat!"

"My husband and I stayed at Holly's cottage for our anniversary. The first thing we noticed when we walked through the door was how clean and well decorated the cottage is. We did have to contact Holly on the second day we were there for a small maintenance issue. She was very quick to respond and made sure our plans were not impacted in any way. We had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend her cottage to anyone!"

"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."

"My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. Exceeded expectations in nearly every way, including the enthusiastic welcome tour by the owners' daughters and the amusement of taking care of their chickens for the week (and benefitting from their labor in the form of fresh eggs every morning).
The home itself is very nice, but the reason to stay is the outdoor facility. Heated pool and spa made it hard to leave and provided hours of relaxation and enjoyment for our kids. Sonos was an added, unexpected bonus that allowed us to control the music througout the house and pool area. Location was ideal ... short walk downhill to downtown Laguna Beach with plenty of restaurants (and coffee and ice cream). Easy launching point to San Diego and Los Angeles for day trips.
Just a great stay all around and hope to be back."
