  • Jewel in the Crown

    "This little gem of a place in Corona del Mar comes as advertised. 2 minute walk to great shopping and restaurants, 5 minute walk to the beach and 2 minute stroll to a large nearby park -- yet with all the intimacy of a small neighborhood. Home is roomy for two people -- 4 at max. Large front porch is ideal for relaxing and watching the world walk by. Doors open wide from the porch to the interior to circulate fresh air and give the interior a more expansive feel. Kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. Gas barbecue is great if you prefer to cook outdoors. Plenty of linens, drawer space, etc. Full entertainment system, including a wide selection of quality DVDs. And, if books are more to your liking, you'll find a wide number of interesting titles. Host is gracious, helpful and fully responsive to issues and/or questions if they arise. In short, easy to stay and easy to like. Fully satisfied with our visit and would definitely rent here again when we next return."

  • Beautiful condo close to everything!

    "My 9 year old twins and I enjoyed our stay at this wonderful condo. The condo is located on a beautiful street and is surrounded by million dollar homes. When you first arrive, you find that you have two parking spots available to you which is helpful for unpacking and for gearing up for local adventures. The condo is on the second floor and the stairs overlook the sparkling pool and spa. We rarely saw any of our neighbors, but when we did they were extremely friendly and suggested activities or sights that only the locals would know. Leigh and Steve, the owners, were also a fount of information as to what to see and do around the area. They even included a notebook filled with brochures, restaurant menus, and savings cards for local businesses. The bedrooms are separated by a hallway and there is an enormous walk-in closet. The Master bedroom was beautifully appointed and the bed reminded me of the quality I would find at the St. Regis, or other high end hotel. The twins' room had two full sized beds with memory foam mattresses. The living room was spacious and the high definition television made me want to buy the same model when I returned home! The owners were very thoughtful for including many of the items that we would need while we were there but we didn't want to purchase or pack for ourselves. We found 4 beach chairs, two beach umbrellas, sand toys, sand blanket, beach towels, and boogie boards in their storage closet! I really can't say enough good things about this condo. The decor was beautiful and well appointed. Every detail had been attended to. There was a large inventory of DVDs for us to watch and also a library of books to enjoy. I always like to mix family vacations with relaxation and education and we found both within a 25 minute drive. We enjoyed "Baby Beach" in the Dana Point Harbor and also visited the Ocean Institute. We could have rented paddle boards or taken sailing lessons right there but decided against that. Baby beach is perfect for kids who might not have a lot of experience in the water as there are no waves. Even though we were there in the height of summer, we easily found free parking very close to the sand at 10 am! We had that same experience on all of our beach days which included a day in Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar tide pools, and Laguna Beach. We also visited the Mission San Juan Capistrano, The Bowers Museum, and Children's Discovery Cube! I can recommend this condo without hesitation!"

  • The Retreat Delivers: Ideal Setup and Locale in Laguna Beach

    "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."

  • Fabulous place to stay!

    "Beautiful, spacious condo that was very clean and nicely furnished. Room for the whole family, quiet neighborhood and surroundings, very convenient location to covered garage. Loved the proximity to the pier and to Del Mar shopping--everything within easy walking distance. Loved being able to open the patio door on the balcony and see and hear the ocean and the beach. Owners were pleasant to work with and very easy to contact. Will definitely stay here again! The Noordas"
