"We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and will stay here again in the future! Jim and Mary were both very courteous and went above and beyond to make our stay in Laguna Beach special. The location was perfect and the house was beautiful!"

"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."

"Loved the place. As others stated beautiful views, wonderfully decorated and great location. Owner also purchased us a Bullitt blender when we asked if they had one and they did not. The owner went out of their way to accommodate us when their was a problem one day in the kitchen area. Hope to come back soon to this magical place in Laguna beach."
