    Tamara H from Windsor, CA recommends this vacation rental

    Great place to stay for our family of four. We could walk on the beach every morning and walk into town, although it was hard to leave the balcony and front living room due to the relaxing view and peaceful rolling waves. Very clean and comfortable too. We'll be back for sure!

    I always stay at the Retreat when visiting Laguna. The Villas are beautiful, feels like home, and close to shops, stores, and restaurants. I highly recommend this place. There is nothing like the panoramic ocean views from your Villa.

    a guest from Portland, OR recommends this vacation rental

    We thoroughly enjoyed our one month stay at Villa Bella Mare in Jan-Feb 2021. It was Covid time, of course, so we pretty much hunkered down in the unit and contented ourselves with cooking our own meals, walking with our Golden Retriever on the beach, and enjoying the sunsets. The unit was well maintained and very clean, and the staff did a great job of quickly taking care of every little thing that needed attention. For example, they (Carlos) replaced the motor of the bathroom ceiling fan on the same day we reported that it wasn't working.

    The location is fantastic, with a one minute walk to the beach below and about a two-minute walk to Ralph's grocery store.

    This photo is pretty accurate, except that the Bird of Paradise plant on the adjacent property has grown considerably and slightly blocks the view of the surfers on the waves below.

    We liked the place so much that we have already booked a unit for 2022! It'll be even better when the town of Laguna Beach is thriving again post-pandemic.

    The best location ever. Waking up to see the ocean. Surf break just downstairs. Lots of restaurants around to chose from. The place though not huge is smartly organized. My husband and I stayed there for 8 nights with our pets and at no point did we feel crammed. The views are amazing. I could sit on the balcony and sip coffee for hours. Checking in and checking out was super easy.

    We’ve stayed at the retreat villas a few times over the past couple of years. Location is fantastic views of the ocean and sunset are amazing. The villa is always clean and inviting, staff is always friendly and helpful. I recommend staying hear to all my friends and family. Laguna beach restaurants and shopping just steps away. 5 star rating for sure.

    Niesha L from Carson, CA recommends this vacation rental

    This villa was perfect for a quick getaway outside of the City. The room was great. There were a few bugs inside flying around. They may have come from the bath tub. It was clean, but I gave them a 4 just because of the few insects. Also at night you have to make sure the door is closed or else dragon fly will definitely join you for your stay. We will definitely stay here again.

    a guest from San Francisco, CA does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Laguna Beach is a beautiful place, but I'm not very happy with my stay at The Retreat in Laguna. It's an expensive inn (our bill was $2,000+ for 3 nights) and I expected better.

    CHECK-IN: I consider 4:00pm kind of late for check-in. Also, the person who checked me in was wearing his covid-19 mask under his chin. I asked him politely to wear his mask. He grudgingly pulled it up so his mouth was covered, but his nose was still uncovered. Passive-aggressive. Not a good way to treat your customers.

    VILLA MARE UNIT: The kitchen was ridiculously understocked. It was missing many very basic utensils and cookware. But my biggest disappointment was the oceanfront view. It was not as advertised in the website photos. Some giant shrubbery (banana trees?) have grown up and blocked a large part of the view.

    Julio upgraded me to the villa for $110 more per night, worth every penny! The room was Perfect! The view was great only one house in front of us next to the beach but it was a shorter house so we could still see the water! Ocean is literally 1 minute away walking distance. Will be back for sure

    We needed an escape from quarantine! The beautiful view of the ocean, Laguna's fresh air, the waves rocking up to sleep each night and our fully equipped Villa made for the perfect retreat. Our contact, Julio went above and beyond the call of duty to help make our stay comfortable and welcoming.

    A really delightful little place. The ocean is at your doorstep. Beautiful views and the roar of the ocean. The only thing I don’t like about this place is the parking. Okay if you have a small car but most guests seem to have huge ones!
