  • 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)."

  • A Zen like Oasis in beautiful Laguna Beach

    "We have stayed in this beautiful house a couple of times. My two teenagers and myself stayed for two weeks at Easter. We love Laguna Beach and have vacationed here many times. We have always had great accommodation but this is our favorite. First the house, it has an amazing split-level living room and kitchen as a feature with the bedrooms built around it. The kitchen is huge with everything you could want, down to various teas and even Tabasco. You can follow the sun all day from the decking and the garden with its luxurious hammock and gazebo. Sculptures and water features relax you and even a vinyl record player with an eclectic collection of sounds adds to the magic. Second the location. We always have a car but when eating out, strolling or going to the beach, downtown is only a short walk. This is a big plus as parking and traffic downtown can get busy. Set in a small U shaped road with beautiful trees to the front you feel like you’re not in town as it’s so quite. Last by no means least is the genuine care that Marilyn shows to her guests. This year she even asked the kids ages and left Easter Baskets for them and informed me that your “never to old for an Easter basket”. Nothing is too much trouble for Marilyn with emails answered super quick and always super positive. We travel from Europe and have been lucky enough to have stayed in many beautiful parts of the world. But for us this house in Laguna Beach contains magical memories and is our go to place for a wonderful vacation."

  • Nice updates on home - busy street only drawback. Great location

    "Having the beach steps literally outside your home is fantastic. The home had great updates. Nice layout and very nice layout. We enjoyed the unit very much. I don't know how the common area would feel if all 3 units were rented out at the same time. While there only ours was rented so we had it all to your self. Hard to say I guess, but while to ourselves we really enjoyed the fireplaces outdoors. While you don't have a beach connecting to your unit that you can see from inside -- it didn't matter much cause it's steps away as soon as you step outside. The main drawback was the busy street. That's the main reason we didn't rate it a 5 out of 5. At night time people were constantly walking by and making small talk -- which really makes it tough to have a private get away. Since the fence is open gate they can see right in. Maybe some shrubbery would help or a closed in fence? If this place had more privacy from the busy road it would be perfect. Luckily it's a cup de sac so it helps minimize it, and I get it -- it's a public beach so of course your not going to 100% private but atleast some buffer would be nice. I would consider going back: the parking for us was nice since we got the larger unit we had a driveway parking. Overall a great experience - the owner even let us check in early. I will recommend this place , but to give my honest feedback if it had more privacy I would've given it a 5 star."

  • Great house overlooking Laguna Beach

    "This is a great house in a neighborhood above Laguna Beach. The house is modern and spotless with all the comforts of home. There is a nice park a block away with tennis courts, playground, and miles of hiking/running trails. The balcony offers nice views of the ocean and gorgeous sunsets. We would rent it again in a heartbeat."
