About Jason Lopez

I grew up in Southern California and have always loved being close to the water.

Why Jason Lopez chose Orange County

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.

What makes this studio unique

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!

Laguna Beach Gem

  • 5 of 5

My two young daughters and I spent a wonderful five nights listening to the ocean lulling us to sleep. Villa d' Arte was clean and quiet with a beautiful (communal) ocean view deck to have a morning meditation moment. My daughters and I enjoyed the beautiful beach right there with all of the fixins that one would need for a perfect day at the beach. We were able to visit lots of family in the area, leave our car parked and walk to anything we needed. I was most surprised how quiet the retreat is because PCH is right there, but the one row of retail and cottages is a real noise buffer for this location. All we heard were the waves.

The only thing that could have made our stay better was a better mattress on the pullout sofa. The main bed was extremely comfortable, but the sofa bed, not so much. My daughter's were just fine, but it would not be fit for a teenager or adult.

We go to Laguna annually to visit family in the area and have a little mini vacation and we look forward to coming back next year and staying at this gem of a place again.

Perfect Place To Stay In Laguna Beach

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this place. I stayed in Villa D'Arte for six nights. Great view, very comfortable bed, nice sheets and comforters. Beautiful furnishings, great kitchen with everything you need. Bathroom is very nice with plenty of soft towels. Parking is included, and you don't need a car. They even include beach towels in your room with a tote. Everything you need for the beach is provided - comfortable chairs and umbrellas, and an outdoor shower to rinse off after the beach with hot and cold water! The property has different types of villas - different sizes and styles. I would take any of the villas, and plan on trying a different one on my next visit. To top it off, everyone who works at the place could not be nicer.

Run, do not walk to The Retreat In Laguna Beach!

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a 7 night solo vacation in the studio Villa D'Arte. It was perfect. I shouldn't have rented a car because I ended up walking everywhere! The unit was clean, comfortable, and modern. The only downside was the fridge was a very small under the counter, which made it difficult to store food and cook in. I also suggest that the unit provide laundry soap for one or two loads. Ralph's does not carry travel laundry soap so I had to buy a whole container (24 loads) to do two loads. Since I flew from out of state I couldn't take any with me. Overall, great experience - I'll be back, but in a different unit!

Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Me, my husband, and my 2 kids (10 and 3) stayed at the D'Are Villa. The resort was really nice and very well kept up! Easy private access to the beach and beach items the guests can use complimentary. Laguna Beach is BEAUTIFUL and we'll definitely go back and stay at the Retreat Laguna again!! We stayed 4 night; with little kids I would recommend scheduling ahead for room service at least once. ...Loved it!

Birthday weekend with my family

  • 5 of 5

We live in Orange, and we go to Laguna Beach very often, we stayed in many hotels and different places... Villa Leon was great!!! We have great stay, was like being at home. The view amazing. The staff super helpful, Bianca made me a special treat basket for my two little girls, candy and treats... they loved it.

The villas are equipped with everything you need.

We went to celebrate my birthday in October, the weather was good and we had a great time. We will be visiting again soon.

Location is brilliant, no need for a car. Complementary breakfast for the full family, complementary bottle of wine... complementary L'occitane products in the bathroom... little luxuries that make you feel that little bit more special...

Highly recommended. :-)

A romantic retreat

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my husband's birthday in Villa D'Arte. It is an open, roomy studio with a bathroom that rivals a six star resort bathroom. The furniture and art pieces are selected tastefully and the unit is extremely clean and fresh. The best part is hearing the sound of ocean throughout the day. In the morning we had our coffee sitting on the patio facing the ocean. My husband spent hours on the patio mesmerized by beautiful scenery. The location of the villa is amazing, we didn't use our car the entire stay and were able to walk to the best restaurants and shops. The staff are friendly and helpful especially Bianca the General Manager is a sweetheart. We are happy to find a jewel in Laguna Beach and will definitely return many times.
