This courtyard facing, luxury vacation villa is well suited for any family grouping and offers 1 ½ baths with comfortable amenities to handle everyone. The master bedroom features rustic style Italian bed and bath. The luxurious bathroom features a double headed shower with beautiful terrazzo tile. The large beige suede futon couch provides for extra guests in the living dining area where a glass dining table makes it easy to accommodate everyone. The gourmet kitchen is beautifully outfitted in stainless steel appliances and granite countertops set on our custom mahogany wood cabinetry. The luxury amenities of this villa are well appointed for both small and larger groups. This spacious villa is also wheel chair and handicap friendly with easy access to our main driveway.
We could not have asked for a better experience. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of organic red wine and a free whale watching voucher, which we took advantage of and had a blast. Even though our villa didn't have its own personal balcony, we enjoyed the shared roof deck which was pretty vacant for the most part. The views were incredible and our villa was clean and modern upon our arrival. Laguna is such a cool area and there's so much to do. We wish we could have stayed more because 5 nights was not nearly enough time. I would recommend this property to anyone who loves the beach and is looking for nothing but a relaxing week. We will definitely be back, maybe even in the same villa because we loved the shower and the size of the property. I have no complaints other than the fact that we only stayed 5 nights.
Four members of my family (2 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed for 3 nights in the Villa Rustico, Bianca ensured that we had additional beach towels, bath towels and made check in a breeze. The Villa was very spotless, updated with a spacious shower and bedroom. The location is perfect as we only had to get into our car one time in 3 days. Grocery store across the street (if you do not want to use The Retreat's concierge service), shops and dining well within walking distance. From check in through check out, Bianca made sure we had what we needed. Looking forward to our next stay at The Retreat.
I make my holiday in this beautiful place. We have such a great time in the Villa Rustico. It is very clean and enough space for 2 People (or more). The rooms are big and light. There is a cosy bed with television (great choise of channels) next to the bedroom is a very big bathroom which is so nice because there is a big shower. In every room is an air condition wich is perfect on hot days. There also is a great kitchen and a second guest bathroom. On the outside is a wonderfull terrasse with seaview , it's a great place to have a bbq there. The bbq grill will be cleaned every day. The people from the Retreat are very polite, answer every question and care so much about the guests. My family is from Germany and we will come back like we do every year!
My wife and I recently stayed at The Retreat in Laguna Beach. It was a fabulous resort. The location is fantastic and the management is tremendous. The onsite management is extremely helpful, very professional and responsive.
In the center of the resort is an incredible and large deck. The deck overlooks the Ocean so the views are truly spectacular. It is a wonderful place to watch the gorgeous sunsets, and the furniture on the deck is very comfortable.
The room was immaculate and clean when we arrived. The room was recently remodeled and it is amazing. No kidding, the room is nicer than the rooms at the 5 Star and 5 Diamond Ritz Carlton Hotel. And the kitchen was 100% perfect, ok size, with first class amenities. You will definitely not be disappointed. We will surely be returning to the Retreat.
This is definitely not a five star resort. I would maybe call it a 3 1/2 star and the best word to describe it would be rustic. The positives were it was very close to the beach, down a long flight of stairs and also close to grocery store and walking distance to town for shopping and restaurants. Our 1 bedroom was very small,stained futon in living room that was very uncomfortable to sit in. When we arrived TV didn't work and we didn't have a toaster, both fixed the next day. The bedroom is very small and had no dresser. Must say the staff are very good and will get things for you. Bed was OK but felt it was going to fall apart anytime soon and alarm clock was a an very old clock.. Kitchen was good, modern appliances but not top notch. We were at back of property, so on the lane and had a lot of noise from behind us as it is a big echo chamber there. Also, couldn't sit on the toilet and close door as it hits your knees.
All in all it was comfortable but not deserving of a high rating.
