    Stacy R from WASHINGTONG, DC does not recommend this vacation rental.

    This place would be fine for a night, but we had originally booked it for a 2 week stay (coming from the east coast to visit family and do some work). Pro's: location is great, easy walk to town and beach. Cons: The view from the photos is very misleading - there is a large house in front that blocks the majority of your view. Also needed better supports for longer stays, there was no dresser for example so we were living out of our suitcases. They also don't offer any cleaning and there is not a mop or anything in unit, so sand was challenging. Wifi is not suitable for trying to work. Generally in need of updates, cabinets missing knobs, knives not sharp, no side table by bed, etc.

    We loved the location of villa davinci. It was easy to find, easy to park, and the view was lovely! The place was clean and appointed w the most necessary items. The thing I thought could be improved was the TV in the living room. Its positioned in a way that made it difficult to watch and is outdated. It would be nice to have smart TV installed on an arm that pulls out and around so that you can watch while sitting on the couch!

    melanie p from FOOTHILL RANCH, CA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Laguna Beach is amazing but this particular unit is just okay. The view here is definitely blocked on one whole side by the house in front of it. The left side of the balcony view is beautiful. The inside flooring is worn looking as is the kitchen. The a/c and heater unit is very complicated and needed the super to show us how to sync the unit to make it work. With all of the options in this area, we wouldn’t stay here again for the price.

    Lawrence S from Palm Desert, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Our stay was great the location is the best and the views are fantastic! The only issue upon arrival was the floors were dirty and needed to be swept. There was only a small broom/dustpan which did not do the job. I suggest a regular size broom and even a floor vac be supplied to guests. As you can imagine being by the beach you will bring sand into the Villa on a daily basis. Part of this type of rental is clean-up after yourself and I personally don't mind cleaning myself. Other than that, it was a very pleasant time and would diffidently rent from this property again!

    The location of the property is great. The check in/out service was good. For the cost of the unit...I’m sorry to say it needs a lot of TLC!!! After checking in... there were several things that needed to be taken care of! The front desk had a maintenance person come to handle the issues. With proper maintenance these things should have been taken care of ahead of time. This particular unit also has a building that partially blocks the view in front of it. Hopefully the company will upgrade these units soon. Then I would return because of the location.

The location is amazing as tou can walk to everything, and the bed is super comfortable.

    Geralyn M from North Las Vegas, NV recommends this vacation rental

    Started out well with the reservation process. As was the check in process. Upon entering the villa, we immediately noticed the cleaning was sub par. Also noticed ants. Maid came and cleaned spots we noticed that were unacceptable. Did not have anything for the ants, however. Except a spray that would be harmful to our dog. The condition of the unit is definitely not depicted in the online photos. Dishwater is definitely defective and on its last leg. Toilet paper roll was broken. Air conditioning/heat not working properly. Sadly left our homemade apple pie on the refrigerator. Didn’t expect to retrieve that, however, I have emailed several times asking about our pie plate. Passed down from my late mother. I’ve not received one response. When we were checked in, they answered promptly. Which we appreciated. Now, nothing. Definitely has us very upset. Positive notes.. the location is fantastic and the space with a view was worth it.

    Jayme B from Irvine, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This is an amazing location. The view and kitchen are worth the money. However, one thing I will say is the sofa couch is very uncomfortable. My family was located during the recent fires in Irvine and my son slept on the pull out bed in the sofa. He said the bar was in his back and every time he moved you would here the most wretched noise. For the money I would hope they would replace the couch for the future. Other than that and the floors not very clean, I would recommend this place and would love to return under different circumstances.

    Really enjoyed our stay in Laguna. The management & staff were very friendly and helpful. Our unit was very clean with a few exceptions. The ceiling above tub was moldy (I know this happens at the beach). The outdoor cushions need replacing (thin as paper).

    a guest from Aliso Viejo, CA recommends this vacation rental

    We went here for a local staycation. The location is incredible... you are overlooking another rooftop, but you see water, lots of it. The walk down to the beach is quick and easy. You are also close to town, so it's all walkable and we didn't need to get into the car the whole time we were there.

    As for the accommodations-- it's a great size. A tiny living space, a kitchen and a queen sized bed. The deck is perfect. The only down sides are that the place is worn-- you see it on some of the furniture and cabinets. The only other very minor complaint-- it's hard to watch TV the way the tv and couch are situated.

    Felt misled regarding view of ocean. Spoke to three different people when trying to book. They read a script. Wouldn’t show me to villa once I checked in. I explained very important for me to distance from strangers and impossible here. The private walk to beach and dog walk was a joke too. Upon check 8n,which I got all in quote for 2;400 dollars. Didn’t include pkg. I disputed that because my quote included everything. Then they charged me 75 a night for my dog which wasn’t allowed in beach 9am til 6. My opti9n alley or the private dog path. Which by the way I have halls wider and dog **** was everywhere.
    The place was very clean. Hardly any cookware couldn’t even find a pan to bake in. There were also window that did not lock. I had to put weights and what I had to feel safe.

    Arrived on Xmas day to discover it was a bait and switch..the unit I booked was ocean front with views of the ocean from all windows on the ocean side. The unit we were taken to was a view of a parking lot and backed up to an alley. I went back to manager and said there was a mistake and she said the pictures were of the general area not of a specific unit. I told her I was not not paying for it and I would dispute the charges on my Amex.. She called someone and offered me another unit but it would only be available for half the time I was supposed to be there. I declined. I told them I wanted a complete refund and they did credit me before I left the property..which was the only positive experience of the property.

    Great location, cute apartments but they are small so travel light. It would be tough for any more than 2 people. Easy beach access and quick walk to everything. The common area balcony was a big bonus, specially when we had family visit one afternoon, beautiful ocean views. The Deck restaurant is located in the hotel right next door, beachside seating and a classy bar with fireplace, The Stateroom too, for evening drinks.
