We are seasoned Laguna visitors, renting for a month every year. We have stayed in properties in all the major private bays. Vista del sol is definitely the pick and the first one to which we have ever returned. It enjoys probably the best panoramic view anywhere on this coast and the house has been built to take the best advantage of it. The beach is our favourite, being uncrowded and with fascinating rock pools for the kids.
We travel as 4 adults and 4 children and the house gives us ample space. Crucially it gives several discrete living areas so we can have one group playing games, another playing the piano, another chatting and another watching the TV. That is crucial with so many on vacation for so long. The facilities are great with an entertaining kitchen and a pool/spa barbeque area that is so good we often struggle to get our kids to go to the beach. The property is actively managed and any issues arising get a quick and helpful response. We would thoroughly recommend it to any family wanting a luxury holiday.
This house has so many views we picked a different deck or room to watch the sun set each day. The master suite is really special. The kids loved the pool and the private beach was the best. We made sure we visited as many of the public beaches as we could and we were always happy to return to our little cove to build a fire and feel protected and cozy. I tried to extend my stay, but of course, the house is booked next month. Book early and stay long. Oh yeah, if you like to cook or grill, they have the best kitchen! Did I mention they have all the tech games and tvs for kids. Guess what, we never turned them on. Days at the beach and pool made everyone happy to just hang out. Like to hike? Just step out the back door and head up the mountain.
The description says this home sleeps 14, but that is a WILD exaggeration. In our party of 13, two slept in a windowless sliver of a room in bunk beds and two others slept on the floor. The three other bedrooms downstairs were cramped at best. One "bedroom" features a futon, a sliding accordion door and no window coverings -- hardly private or quiet. All bedrooms were dirty and it was questionable whether the bed linens had been washed. The shared bathroom downstairs was shared by eight of us, but actually had room for one person's belongings. The photos of this home on this site were clearly taken a long time ago. This house has since fallen into disrepair. The majority of the ceiling lights and lamps did not work or had bulbs that need to be replaced. What was once likely lovely landscaping is now dead and almost gone. I never saw anything resembling a vegetable garden. It also states that the beach is .25 miles away. Well, you walk down a very steep mountain, cross Highway 1 and then meander through the neighborhood before you reach the beach entrance. This is not a quarter of a mile walk! One could walk, but if you plan to take beach chairs or anything else, a drive makes more sense. The views are breathtaking -- that was the one thing we all loved and what made being on top of the hill in this misrepresented home bearable.
I would not recommend staying here.
