    Gulcin B from SCOTTSDALE, Arizona recommends this vacation rental

    This property is right by the ocean and very close to downtown. The only issue if the sofa bed. The bed is comfortable but the sofa bed is very uncomfortable.
    Also although the kitchen and the room were clean, the bathroom had not been cleaned properly. The shower had chunks of hair from the previous tenants.

    a guest from Danville, California recommends this vacation rental

    1. Excellent location, great access to stores, etc, beautiful ocean view from common area.
    2. Overall well maintained. Small, but functional. Negative points for the hideously complex light switches. My wife and other guests in different rooms had same frustrations.
    3. Internet / wireless connectivity was sub par. I realize the rental unit/ company doesn’t have total control over this...but an honest upfront mention of this limitation would help set expectations. Not an unreasonable request for a high end rental in an upscale area.
    4. Shades on all windows (except bedroom) were nearly “see-through”. Created an unwelcome fishbowl experience when looking from outside in (especially at night).
    5. Communication from rental management generally very good. Received several calls prior to check in, advising of payment processing, etc. Even got call day of check in to ask if we had any questions, etc. After long travel day arrived at Holiday Inn for check in (a bit odd). Was told I needed to complete a rental agreement prior to check in. I don’t doubt this rental agreement was described in the reservation process, but would have preferred a heads up during one of the several calls I received. Having to execute this at time of check in was irritating, time consuming, etc. Again, probably a miss on my part, but a reminder would have been more welcome than an 11 pm surprise at check in.
    6. Kudos to the HI person who went by the name “Q” (I think), for offering to drive with us to find the rental unit. First time renters checking in after dark would be challenged to locate the complex.
    7. Overall, these rentals have their upside, but beware of the issues described. Recommend with cautions.

    STEPHANIE I from Azusa, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Great stay but with 2 set backs.
    1. Shades that covered the windows for privacy were see through at night.
    2. Last night we stayed a light shined in through the bedroom back window that lit the whole room up. Needless to say I didn’t get any sleep.

    Melissa G recommends this vacation rental

    Absolutely love the location and property at The Retreat in Laguna. Tucked in a quiet alley way, ocean front, we loved waking up to the sound of the waves. Watched the sunrise on the deck and was able to enjoy breakfast in our one bedroom apartment. It was spacious for the two of us and dog friendly. Incredibly clean and decorated with much attention to detail. Can’t wait to stay again!!

    Very small unit but very clean and has private patio. Good for a weekend. Windows could use better shades as it's not a very private unit. Shared deck has beautiful ocean views. Owner is unresponsive to emails so if you have a question, you need to call.

    We had an amazing time , was relaxing and cozy, loved that you could use the common area to have dinner and watch the sunset . Want to come again , love that we could bring our dog.
    We will stay here again and have told our friends. The shades need to be thicker cause you can see through them into the house , needs more privacy . BBQ wasn’t working we had to call to help us .

    a guest from Cardiff By The Sea, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The location is tremendous and couldn't be better, however the properties cleanliness was not up to level of COVID safe. I purchased cleaning spray at Ralphs to clean surfaces, door and cabinet handles, controls, etc. The ceiling fan remotes did not work and there were more light controls than in a large home and could have used descriptions or directions for use. The TV size and location was limited due to the size of the property, but very poor as far as an amenity. I also asked for a roll of paper towels as there were just a few left on the roll and I never did receive and they seemed to not even have any in the storage area where the garage doors were.

    a guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    This Villa is great for couples with a perfect location. Centrally located to several restaurants, bars, shopping, and right across the street from the grocery store. Most of all, most the villas are beach front with easy access a few stairs down to the beach. In villa #4 your beach view is slightly obstructed which is not bad because there’s a lovely courtyard with a very nice grill as your porch. Just 3 steps up to a larger lounge area with chairs & umbrellas for direct beach view, absolutely lovely. There are luxury appliances, nice wine storage shelving, and a very comfortable mattress (full size I believe). Also, there is one designated parking spot which a decal will be given to you. We absolutely enjoyed our stay.
