This Villa has the feeling of a casual Italian Café with its open style kitchen and living/dining area. The front door opens to a private courtyard leading up to our spacious Piazza deck overlooking the coastline. Featuring a luxury gourmet kitchen with high quality, stainless steel appliances surrounded by marble counter tops with the elegant dark toned wood cabinets. It's easy entertaining your friends or family while you are enjoying the majestic ocean views. The master bedroom suite has its own views of the ocean and is outfitted with a Tuscany Country style bed and designer sheets. A Queen size leather sleeper to accommodate an additional two people is in the living room area. WiFi and Flat Screen TV rounds out the modern amenities of this Villa.
I grew up in Southern California and have always loved being close to the water.
Having grown up in Southern California, when the opportunity came to purchase an additional property as a place for friends and family to stay when they were visiting, my wife and I jumped at the chance. Orange County provides the perfect balance between activities and relaxation. Laguna Beach is known for its artistic nature, and this location is within walking distance of art galleries, fantastic restaurants and the beautiful beach. Whether you prefer keeping busy or just laying out on the deck or the beach, this location is ideal for both.
Amazing ocean views are available here from your private deck. You can choose to spend some time on the beach, getting massages on your own deck, or enjoying the sights and sounds of historic Laguna Beach. Grocery services are available for those who want to sit back and relax. This is an idyllic vacation home. Come on out and enjoy it!
Exactly as expected small but nicely kept and modern. Could use a few more dishes etc. If you eat here you will need to run the dishwasher after every meal. Managers are on site during the day and helpful. Beach chairs, towels, and boogy boards are a nice feature. Walking distance to Main Beach, center of town and groceries. Fire pit has been decommissioned. This unit has no view. Views from some of the other units and the common area. Would stay here again.
It wasn't winning the Powerball, but it was a vacationer's dream to find such a gem in the midst of Laguna Beach. From the convenience of a Ralph's grocery and the Orange Inn cafe' a block away to the short walks up and down the PCH to all the restaurants and shops, this retreat had everything one could need. The spectacular ocean views from the extensive patio and the attentive resident manager, Bianca, made it easy to be embraced by the scenery and the atmosphere that only Laguna can offer.
I am a frequent traveler and stay in many Luxury Resorts & Spa's. I was amazed at how comfortable the bed was and quite, considering being close to PCH. The views are amazing and the service was second to none.
This was my second stay at The Retreat in this darling little villa and my second review. I was assured by Jason that it would exceed my expectations and what better testimonial but to come back again and experience such a nirvana-like atmosphere. To my delight, their extremely capable, professional and attentive manager, Bianca, left no stone unturned and had all of my wants prepared for me when I entered my Palazzo flat. I met some wonderful guests, some of them saying don’t tell anyone about this amazing place because it will be to difficult to get a reservation again if the word gets out. But I can’t help but to shout it out! If you want an unobstructed view of the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, the sound of waves lulling you to sleep at night, humming birds and pelicans flying over your head, and smiling, happy people around you, this is the place! The secret is out - look no more, this can be your ‘oasis’, too!
Palazzo D'Stella is very cool and perfect for a couple. Although it's just a block from Pacific Coast Highway, the Palazzo is quiet with only the sound of the waves to soothe you. And although it's tucked amid eight units, it's quite private. This unit has its own patio, which is nice, and the common-area patio is steps away and has ample beach and mountain views. The unit is stocked with everything you might need to cook food, and the furnishings are well appointed. You can also walk anywhere to downtown or straight to the beach from there, and a Ralph's grocery store is just across the highway. Bianca is a most perfect hostess who happily answers all your questions and makes really great suggestions, too. The Retreat is our new go-to place in Laguna!
The Palazzo was everything and more than we thought it would be! The entire property was clean, quiet and well appointed. The room was comfortable, cozy, well decorated and had all amenities we needed. The property is centrally located in Laguna and just steps to the beach. We did not drive our car once. From now on this will be the only property we stay at when we come to Laguna. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful.
