Review Title : 1023728 - "Amazing Location"

"We recently stayed a week in SeaMist and had family in the Hideway across the hall. The Retreat is being remodeled and they have done an excellent job. Many details in the condo. We had a great view and listened to the ocean all night long! We absolutely loved it and will definitely return. The manager, H, was very accommodating and friendly. It was in a great locations and you can walk to everywhere in Laguna Beach. We never had to use the car!"

Just steps from the ocean and what a view!

VRBO Bear stayed here

When you travel as much as I do you stay in quite a few places. Eventually they can start to all feel the same. This place, however, is different. Whether that difference is the breathtaking ocean view or the simple, clean, elegant décor of accommodations,this is a great place to relax and recharge your batteries. The relaxing sound of the ocean's waves will help you get some of the best sleep you've had in your life. In the morning you will awaken from your hibernation to be greeted by the rejuvenating sea air. With its central location in Laguna Beach, you can walk to pretty much anywhere you want to go. There is a grocery store right across the street and Laguna Canyon Road (the hub of activity in Laguna) is only about half a mile away. There is so much to do and see here that I wish I could have stayed longer. From surfing, sailing, whale watching, beach bumming, golfing, bicycling, or just plain walking, if you're looking to get out and do something you'll have plenty of options. There are many charming local stores nearby with unique wares that make shopping a delight. The diversity and quality of the nearby dining options is superb. Whether it was eating burgers and salads at Tommy Bahama's Grill, pizza and pasta at Alessa's, or making our own dinner using the incredible kitchen and barbecue in your unit and having a picnic on the beach while watching the sunset, every dining experience is top-notch. So what are you looking for in a vacation? Is it nature, is it sports, is it quality time with your honey & cubs? Whatever it is you can probably find it here.

Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

A Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa De Vinci #5 is amazing! It has all the perks you could imagine in a nice, quaint, vintage villa. It is a very close walk to the beach, grocery store and restaurants. The panoramic views of the ocean are impeccable! The sound of the ocean is so relaxing. Get your camera ready while lounging on the patio. I actually saw a Whale while sitting on the patio. Now, how cool is that!? Yes! It was a Whale because he blew water from his blowhole. That within itself was just simply amazing! The kitchen is fully equipped and the lighting just make it a very relaxing ambiance. The office staff are very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely make this my home away from home! What a sweet retreat.

Breathtaking views with a nice clean unit with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

At first, I had a hard time getting a hold of anyone regarding my reservation for the longest time. But, once I got to speak to someone, everything was taken care of and the check in and check out was smooth. Beautiful location with stunning views. Loved the shared deck space and bbq grill with complimentary propane available for use. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back.

Lovely Get-Away Bungalow

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific stay and will surely go back again to the Retreat. They provide all you need for beach fun: chairs, umbrellas, beach toys. They also provide weights and yoga mats. Inside, all the comforts of home are provided. There is a bath and a half which comes in handy. The reason I gave four stars instead of five is that the view of the sea is somewhat obstructed as you look west. You can see the ocean over the house if front of you though. Also, there is a great view to the south of both the beach and water. The staff is was very hospitable. The property's location is such that within a short walk, all you need is nearby. We didn't have to use our car once. Great time!!!
