Guestbook comments from the manager

I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful stay we had at your beautiful casita. The views were magnificent, the hotel staff was friendly and helpful (despite what seemed like an extremely busy weekend for weddings and large groups), and your place was comfortable, spacious, and well-equipped. My infant son slept better there than he has at any other hotel, and all of our friends were raving about our "home away from home."

Thank you allowing us to check in early- it really helped get my son situated. We are already looking at dates when we can visit again! I will be in touch with you when I can get away from the office again...

Very comfortable casita

  • 5 of 5

The casita is very comfortable & great for a family of four (as we were). We rented only two bedrooms, which was perfect for us. Very relaxing, well situated on property, fairly close walk to everything (spa, main hotel & restaurants). You do have to walk to the pools or Jacuzzis, but that works out fine, nice to walk around the pretty property with views of the ocean.

The manager for the property (Kathy) is very helpful, able to accommodate us for early arrival (only because there was no one in the unit the night before). She walked us thru the process very well, pleasant to talk with & responsive to emails of questions or other items.

This rental includes maid service. They aren't always there real early in the morning (which was fine with us, we were late sleepers) but if you are out of the room early you may want to call housekeeping and get them to come earlier.

Any complaints we had were about the hotel staff and services, not the condo (the condo owner doesn't really have control over this). We asked for certain things to be handled by maintenance and security and they were very slow and non responsive. I think, if you dial zero and ask for things, the person on the receiving end of the phone is pleasant to speak to but doesn't seem to get things accomplished and it required multiple calls to get things fixed or serviced. Again, not the fault of the owner or the property manager, just the fault of the hotel.

Most hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating. If you ask anyone for a ride in their cart from one location to another (from the spa or restaurant to the unit), they are very willing. One time I was tired and didn't want to walk up the hill in the rain, and asked a kitchen worker who happened to be leaving the restaurant in a cart for a ride, and she was most accommodating and friendly during the ride. So "rank and file staff" are wonderful. One of the concierges, Jon Schwartz, is always particularly helpful (we have worked with him on 2-3 visits before) and he is always friendly and accommodating. we used their Lexus shuttle to go to a movie and the young driver was great, came back for us, waiting around since our movie was late.

No comments on the restaurant food from this trip, we ate most of our meals in the unit. From past experience, we haven't found the food in the restaurants to be that good, definitely not worth the price, but that may be our taste since others seem to like it.

5 Star With a View

  • 5 of 5

Had a 3 night stay at this lovely three bedroom cassita with family and friends. The rooms were large and the furnishings/finishes were excellent. The location is close by the main resort building and amenities with a view of Catalina. Would definitely go back.

Amazing casita at a beautiful location but resort service needs improvement

  • 4 of 5

We rented this casita for eight people over Labor Day weekend. We got married on Saturday at Catalina View Gardens and the casita was great to have a place for some of the bridal party to stay. The casita is well furnished and very spacious! We rented two casitas for the weekend and this one had better furnishings than the other one we rented. Our other guests were very impressed. It was perfect to accommodate our group. It was great to have the kitchen to store food/drinks. Resort amenities are top notch.

The owner of the casita was very easy to work with and very responsive. She also helped us get early check-in for our first day, which helped us get the vacation started early!

Our only complaint for the entire trip would have to be in regards to the service from the resort. To be clear, these complaints have nothing to do with the casita owner or Homeaway, only the resort staff. Several of our requests seem to have been completely ignored (called for golf cart shuttle service to restaurant that never showed up--happened twice, called for turndown service three times until they finally came at 10pm). Some of our guests said that the service they received at Nelson's restaurant was very poor. Also, we were given inaccurate information from the resort staff regarding the parking charges upon check-in which led to a couple hundred dollars in charges. The resort did end up waiving many of the charges, but I would recommend that you watch out for this when staying here. We have been to Terranea many times before and the service has been consistently bad for many years. There is clearly a systemic issue in the hiring/training process that should be revisited by property management. Given the price point of the resort, I would hope for better service. I realize this is completely out of control of the owner of the casita, so this is not a criticism of our Homeaway experience.

That being said, it is an unbeatable location with beautifully landscaped grounds. If you can avoid interacting with the staff too much, you will have a lovely stay.

Fabulous and Fun Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to to this beautiful, well appointed and spacious casita at Terranea. In fact, before we departed, it was a unanimous choice to return next year! The casita is very well maintained and spotless on our arrival. Great linens, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms and a kitchen that was stocked with everything we needed. The housekeeping staff was very attentive and accommodating. We can't say enough about the resort! Fabulous spa, fully equipped workout facility. We loved our spinning class early in the morning while we overlooked the beautiful ocean as we spotted whales! We enjoyed playing golf at The Links at Terranea, as well as Trump National down the road. The grounds at Terranea are meticulously maintained and groomed and there are picturesque views from every vantage point! As far as dining, we didn't leave the resort as initially planned because the restaurants are fabulous! This is truly a 5 star casita and resort and we can't wait to return next year!

Beautiful weekend, but this Casita doesn't sleep 8

  • 3 of 5

Overall, you can't go wrong with Terranea. We had a beautiful weekend and a lot of fun. I was disappointed with this Casita because it says that it sleeps 8 but it doesn't! We checked both sofas but neither one was a pull out bed. The front desk didn't believe me so they sent someone to make the sofa bed. Needless to say they were surprised when they couldn't find the pull out sofa bed. They told me that it's a fire hazard to have a roll-away bed in our particular Casita but the Manager finally approved. Obviously the roll -away bed was tiny and only slept one so we had to have someone sleep on the sofa. It sounds to me like all of the other Casitas are equipped with a pull-out sofa bed so I am not sure why this one is not. If you're looking to sleep 8 comfortably, I suggest to look for a different Casita. It's just frustrating that it advertises 8 and Terranea couldn't help us figure out how to do that. Fortunately we had some really easy-going people in our group. Also we thought there was an oven there and we planned to bake pizzas. Turns out it is a microwave/oven so we had to pay Terranea $70 to come pick up our pizzas and cook them in their kitchen.

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear you mostly enjoyed your stay. It is unfortunate that you didn’t contact me directly as this could have been resolved in less than 5 minutes. The third bedroom is a lock off, or sometimes referred to as a granny flat. All keys provided to you by the resort staff are keyed alike and therefore unlock all 3 suites. The suite numbers are listed on the doors and coincide with your rental agreement. There are four beds total – not including an airbed tucked away in the laundry room in the event you don’t want to double up. I am working with the director of services to understand how the misunderstanding occurred. They did assure me you were reserved for all 3 bedrooms, but the third bedroom was never opened.
