Perfect location & wonderful amenities

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful 1 BR, 1.5 bath Villa Rustica was thoroughly enjoyed by my teenage sons & I during our 4 days in Laguna Beach. The kids slept on the full size pullout couch in the living room area. Gorgeous view of the ocean from the shared patio where I began & ended each day. Only steps to the beach, 2 blocks to the grocery store & a short walk to dozens of restaurants & shops. Convenient parking & laundry provided. We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area!

Super close to beach and shopping with stunning ocean views.

  • 5 of 5

Submitted reservation request on short notice. Then received an offer to upgrade to a more spacious unit for a discounted rate. Guaranteed parking for one vehicle on site with additional parking just two short blocks away. Ralphs for groceries is one block away. Our unit had a fully equipped kitchen that helped make our stay hassle free. Very well maintained property. Property manager Bianca is a pleasure to do business with. We highly recommend this vacation rental in Laguna Beach. We will check availability with The Retreat In Laguna for our next stay.

The Retreat Delivers: Ideal Setup and Locale in Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

The Retreat in Laguna lives up to its name and then some. My wife and our teenage sons spent a 3-day weekend in the Villa D'Arte studio, and we had a great experience. We've been to Laguna many times over the years and always stayed in a standard hotel not near the water or downtown. The Retreat is an ideal location, right on top of a great beach for boogie boarding and within easy walking distance of all that Laguna has to offer. The complex is slick too, with a great deck overlooking the water that we spent a lot of time on and outdoor cabinets with all the beach gear you'd need. The owners have thought of everything for a peaceful, vibrant Laguna experience. And the studio was plenty big for all of us, with a nice kitchen and bathroom too, although we spent most of our time outside enjoying the sun. Perhaps the best part was we didn't drive anywhere for 2 of our 3-day visit, another bonus in So Cal. I'd highly recommend the Retreat and we're looking forward to our next return trip.

Laguna Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

My two young daughters and I spent a wonderful five nights listening to the ocean lulling us to sleep. Villa d' Arte was clean and quiet with a beautiful (communal) ocean view deck to have a morning meditation moment. My daughters and I enjoyed the beautiful beach right there with all of the fixins that one would need for a perfect day at the beach. We were able to visit lots of family in the area, leave our car parked and walk to anything we needed. I was most surprised how quiet the retreat is because PCH is right there, but the one row of retail and cottages is a real noise buffer for this location. All we heard were the waves.

The only thing that could have made our stay better was a better mattress on the pullout sofa. The main bed was extremely comfortable, but the sofa bed, not so much. My daughter's were just fine, but it would not be fit for a teenager or adult.

We go to Laguna annually to visit family in the area and have a little mini vacation and we look forward to coming back next year and staying at this gem of a place again.

Perfect Place To Stay In Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this place. I stayed in Villa D'Arte for six nights. Great view, very comfortable bed, nice sheets and comforters. Beautiful furnishings, great kitchen with everything you need. Bathroom is very nice with plenty of soft towels. Parking is included, and you don't need a car. They even include beach towels in your room with a tote. Everything you need for the beach is provided - comfortable chairs and umbrellas, and an outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach with hot and cold water! The property has different types of villas - different sizes and styles. I would take any of the villas, and plan on trying a different one on my next visit. To top it off, everyone who works at the place could not be nicer.

Run, do not walk to The Retreat In Laguna Beach!
