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."

"When this condo description says "on the beach" it means it! Easy access to the ocean, beautiful views, walking distance to shops-- leave the car alone and enjoy! The owner has fabulous suggestions for places to eat too. We had a marvelous and relaxing week here and would return in a heartbeat."

"We are 4 couples that meet up at least once a year for a friends reunion. We chose Laguna this year and picked this house to stay at.
It was perfect, 4 bedrooms each with its own bath. Large open floor plan for its kitchen and living room for us to gather in the evening. Great patio and garden area where we drank our morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. The house is super quiet. Its a mile down to the beach, but we needed the excercise after all the good food we ate at the local restaurants, and Chris gave us some secret parking space advice to park in Laguna in the evening. It was a wonderful place to stay."
