Recent Laguna Beach reviews

  • Laguna Beautiful!

    "This Casa Blanca in Laguna is a real gem. It was a lovely stay at the house which is a short walk from the beach in North Laguna. Get there early so you can have some private beach time in the Pacific. The house has character and charm for Laguna living and was great for the kids. It has great air and space for plenty of guests. It was the second time we stayed at the house and we so appreciated the host Marija's professional communications and thoroughness. I highly recommend a stay at this property."

  • Fantastic Location and Views in Laguna Beach

    "This was our 2nd time staying at The Retreat. Both times, we were with our two kids (now 9 and 11) and this last time we brought our mini-schnauzer with us. Needless to say, both times were amazing! The place is super chill and has been access down to the beach literally about 30 steps away. The views of the ocean and downtown Laguna are spectacular both from the balcony and rooftop deck. Although the units are small for a party of 4, the unit we rented had a pull out couch and Bianca was nice enough to make a surprisingly comfortable blowup mattress available for our 9 year old. Although the place is small, it is extremely cozy. It even has a fireplace (although we didn't use it during our visit in August). On this point, I should note that the A/C and ceiling fans work like a dream and the place was plenty cool, despite the relatively hot temps in Aug. The kitchen is extremely functional with pretty much everything you could need for cooking. It is also has a large sink, a dishwasher, a large microwave and large oven. Although there are lots of great restaurants in town, because the weather was so spectacular this last trip and we had our dog with us, we decided to take full advantage of the largely unused rooftop deck with 180 degree panoramic views by staying in to watch sunset every night. At night, we grilled out on the deck (grocery store is literally 100 yards away or less) most nights and the other nights ordered from Door Dash (PIzzabar was amazing!) who brought everything right to our door. The place we rented has a full and a half bath. Shower is amazing! And they have a hot outdoor shower for when you come up from the beach and you and all your stuff are full on sand. The bed in our unit was pretty comfortable (even if a little creaky when you move around at night) and the pull out couch in the living room is beginning to look a bit dated. However, none of those things adversely impacted our trip. In fact, because we live only an hour a way and this is one of the few places in Laguna with a full kitchen and bbq where you can stay right on the water and bring your dog, we are actually planning to come more often now -- almost treating it like a timeshare. Part of what makes this place so easy is that they also have 2 washer/dryers available to customers. Finally, the hospitality was once again amazing!! Both times, Bianca and the cleaning staff were always extremely helpful and accommodating which made a great stay AMAZING!"

  • Amazing Unit

    "I can't say enough nice things about this unit. The pictures didn't give the condo justice for how nice it was. The entire place was clean, well organized, had everything we needed and more. The owners were so kind and responded so fast to anything you needed. We will definitely be back! Thank you for such a great vacation!"

  • Wonderful Stay!!

    "I cannot say enough about the gold star treatment we received from the owner of this property. We enjoyed every second out on the deck with the beautiful view of the ocean, the kitchen that had everything that we needed, and the owner even had toys for our young children to play with. She went above and beyond any experience we have had before and would stay again!! This is a top rate home with a top rate owner. Thanks so much Gay!!"
