Recent Laguna Beach reviews

  • Beautiful, modern, immaculate property, great view

    "This was a stunning house and exactly as described. We were six people, two couples with our two 22 year old daughters. The house was modern, clean, simply and beautifully decorated, with a state of the art kitchen. There was a lovely view of Laguna and the ocean, from the upstairs balcony, as shown in the property photo. The two master bedrooms were very large, each with a King bed and high end bedding. I have to say it was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! The downstairs large bedroom has a patio with a hot tub, but there is no curtain on the widow (there is an outside wall for privacy) and our friends who stayed in that room had issues with the property light in the evening and daylight in the morning.The third bedroom, called the meditation room is on the small side and dark (with one small window). We put our daughters in there, with an air mattress provided by Jeff that was surprisingly thick and plush. Probably not a great option for older adults, but for young adults, teenagers or kids it was okay. There is a wonderful park about a block and a half from the house. There is a paved loop perfect for power walking and relatively flat, or miles and miles of hilly dirt trails. I even spotted a rattle snake (from a distance!). The house is high up in Laguna Hills in a quiet neighborhood, so be prepared to use your car to and from the beach, town etc. There is bus and trolley service if you don't want to bother with the car, but we stuck with driving. We did not get to meet Jeff, the owner, however, he made check in and check out a breeze, left a guest manual with all the information we needed, and was reachable in an emergency. One of the great advantages of the house for us, was being able to spend family time cooking great meals in a beautiful setting. We were even able to have a couple of family members who lived in the area over for dinner. The house is incredibly light with lot's of glass and the living room is comfortable and a great place for a small group to enjoy being together. There was a large gas grill on the upstairs patio making barbecuing really easy and fun, and the kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, glassware, pots and pans etc. and even great spices and condiments. I would highly recommend this beautiful home for anyone who wants a relaxing Laguna beach vacation. We hope to make a return visit at some point. Thank you Jeff for a very special experience!"

  • Perfect! Location! Clean! Cute!

    "Our stay: May 6 - 8th, 2016 My fiance, Joe, and myself needed to finalize wedding plans, so we were only going to be in town for a couple of nights. We wanted to stay at Tara's because we rented her home for our minister and his wife for our wedding in July and we wanted to make sure it was all it looked to be on the website. Not only is the home cute, but it is private. At first, I was skeptical about the privacy with the hot tub and the deck area, but it was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere we needed to go. We parked the car (driveway, which is a major plus in Laguna Beach!)when we arrived and I believe we only took the car once because we weren't sure how far away a flower shop was. Such a cute, clean and well maintained home. Tara couldn't have been more accommodating or easier to work with. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend for others to stay here, too! We wish we could have stayed longer!"

  • Amazing weekend at The Retreat!

    "My wife and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary at the Retreat, in the Belle Mare unit. We loved everything about the property. The waves breaking below us, the gorgeous sunsets, the lounge deck, steps from the beach. We parked our car when we arrived on Thursday, and didn't need to get in it again until we left on Sunday. We were walking distance to ALL of our favorite restaurants, breakfast cafes, rooftop lounges, and shopping. We will be coming back to the Retreat, for sure. Restaurant suggestions: The Cliff (breakfast), The Deck (lunch and sunset), Sky Loft (lunch, dinner, sunset, late night), Nick's (breakfast, dinner, late night), Rooftop Lounge (lunch, sunset, K'ya Bistro (dinner)."

  • Great Beach Apartment

    "We had a lovely stay in this perfect beach apartment in North Laguna Beach. It has wonderful ocean views and is an easy walk to many great beaches. A short walk to the free trolley brings you into downtown Laguna Beach, but we also walked into town several times (it's about a mile) as it's a lovely walk along the ocean. The apartment is clean and comfortable. When we arrived the owner was there to give us many helpful suggestions and recommendations to make our stay even better. The apartment is comfortable and had everything we needed for a great beach getaway. I highly recommend a staying her for a casual, convenient and comfortable getaway."
