Recent Laguna Beach reviews

  • European Luxury on the California Riviera

    "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."

  • Guest House in Laguna!

    "My daughters and I stayed there over spring break and didn't want to leave! We found the guest house nicely appointed with everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable, which was a plus! The views from the terrace were breathtaking, especially at sunset. We enjoy walking, and chose to walk to the beach rather than drive. Charlie even brought us sand toys and extra beach chairs! Overall this was one of our best vacations ever (quoted by my 12 yr old daughter)! We will definitely be back to stay at the guest house in Laguna again."

  • Luxurious Vacation.

    "We rented this luxurious villa for an extended vacation for our family and were delighted with everything about it. The spaciousness and privacy of the whole property was immediately impressive with the lovely front lawn and patio for relaxing quietly, the beautiful large pool and terrace where we relaxed over lunch most days and the equally spacious and beautifully decorated internal accommodation - the large family TV den was our favourite room. The furnishing throughout were high quality and extremely comfortable and everything was provided for a wonderful stay, including stacks of luxurious towels & bed linen and a wonderful laundry facility. Whilst extremely private, the views from the terrace of the large master bedroom suite were spectacular and the location was only just off the Pacific Coast Highway and therefore very convenient for the ocean, several beaches and many restaurants, both within walking distance and a short drive away in Laguna Beach itself. Amazingly the Laguna trolley bus stops just one block away (50 yds) around the corner. The location also meant it is very convenient for exploring the whole south coast and the expansive and secure off-street parking/double garage at the villa was an added bonus. Our family hope to return again in the near future and we will certainly recommend the villa unreservedly to all our friends and acquaintances."

  • Great views and plenty of space!

    "This views from this house are awesome. Literally you can see the ocean from every room - even the shower in a couple of bathrooms! There was plenty of room for 3 families all with kids. Patience was incredibly thoughtful and helpful. A must stay for any family event!"
