  • Overall, a nice place to stay

    "My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Amoroso Retreat over Labor Day Weekend. Overall, it was a nice little place to stay. It was close to the beach and that was a big plus. They also have two cruiser bikes that you can rent for a week at $30/each and, that was a huge plus for us. Santa Monica has a great bike path/lane system and we were able to ride on one trail for miles along the beach front all the way down to Manhattan Beach and beyond throughout our stay. The only reason I didn't give the place 5 stars is because it was very sparsely equipped with basic supplies in the kitchen. There was salt and pepper, but nothing else such as cooking spray or a decent spatula for cooking eggs and such. Also, they didn't provide even one bar of soap for use in the tub/shower. All that being said, we would definitely stay in the Amoroso Retreat again. We would just come a little better prepared in the future."

  • WONDERFUL!

    "We rented the house for a family get-away and everything was LOVELY!!!! The house is gorgeous and spacious, the views of the ocean are amazing, the rugs, towels, sheets, etc were ALL so luxurious, clean and well-kept. I felt the owners go above and beyond in the quality of the items in the house considering they rent it out. We cooked dinners and breakfasts and the kitchen and pantry are incredibly well stocked (considering the nearest grocery store besides the Pebble Beach lodge's market, is at least a 25 minute drive each way). The Wi-Fi worked very efficiently, the fireplace was just lovely, the central heating worked perfectly and we were all cozy and happy. The outdoor patios are an AMAZING place to hang out. We took a walk around the neighborhood and heard sea lions bark, saw a family of five deer (papa deer with large antlers too), and despite the fact that there's no sidewalks, there's such little traffic/cars on the streets that we felt safe on the street. We also took a walk to the Lodge which we thought was beautiful but very crowded and touristy so instead we ate lunch in downtown Carmel, which was surprisingly closeby and lovely. The kids loved playing at the beach for the afternoon. The owners surprised us with a bottle of wine and a couple of cold beers in the fridge and fresh fruit and nuts, which was a nice and warm welcome and we felt well taken care of. There was plenty of space for our three cars in the driveway/garage. Note that the fourth full bathroom is (strangely) downstairs and it's an outdoor access so we never used it. The three full bathrooms worked just fine for us. Also, I originally thought we could take a walk of a loop onto the 17 mile drive, but there's TOO much car traffic and no shoulder or sidewalk, so forget about that idea. This house was worth every penny and I'm already fantasizing about going back there soon!"

  • Excellent Property/Best Family Vacation

    "We just loved our vacation in this unit it was everything we could have asked for. The staff was very helpful with everything. The unit was well kept, clean and had everything we needed, including beach gear. The area was great and is not as crowded as Pacific Beach or Mission Beach. Friendly places to eat and markets right there. Park next store to the complex was great for our small children. We will definitely be coming back! Thank you for a great vacation!"
