|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
This Villa has been inspired by the word "Lion" because everything is fit for a king here. With stainless steel appliances and marble counter tops in the open kitchen/dining area that features café style table and chairs and a spectacular view of the water below. A selection of unique paintings from our collections add a beautiful finish to the Venetian plaster wall surfaces that feature crown molding in every room. The living room has a leather sleeper couch for extra guests. The bedroom is elegantly designed with Tuscany country colors that are warm and inviting. This spa bathroom features a selection of luxury designer tile in the shower/tub and cabinetry with beautiful marble surfaces. Just take a step out of your front door onto a private deck where you can watch the sun fade to rose over the blues of the Pacific Ocean.
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!
After a disappointing stay at another location last year we were lucky enough to discover The Retreat at Laguna.
Everything you could want in a Villa setting plus outstanding service and the perfect location combined to make our stay truly memorable.
From the time of initial booking to the final moments of our stay, Bianca and her staff maintained regular communication with us and quickly accommodated our every request.
Their obvious interest in making sure that we had a high quality experience was heart worming.
We are unable to think of a single thing that we would add or change, andvwe're already planning our next visit.
The Retreat in Laguna was special. The words that come to mind are cozy, intimate, well appointed, personable and location, location, location. My wife and I spent 5 days at the Retreat in the Villa Leone and experienced unexpected, personalized service from Bianca and Ryan. We were pampered and felt like we were right on the ocean with fantastic views and sounds, yet were less than 5 minutes from most anything we wanted in Laguna Beach. I have visited Laguna many times over the years but this was the first time at the Retreat in Laguna Beach. We certainly plan on enjoying this wonderful, unique retreat again soon and will encourage friends and family to join us.
It was a pleasant stay. The view is absolutely perfect. Located in a very nice and convenient tourist district but yet tucked away in the little alley. Has lots nice and yummy restaurants around, in walking distance.. Besides the shopping area is just right down the street. Love the grocery supermarket is just 3 mins away. Which the bed was in king size and would be nice to offer room service daily. Bathroom is bit tiny but acceptable. Overall nice stay and would recommend to others.
staying at the villa bella mare at the retreat in laguna was a fabulous, memorable experience! I took my elderly mother there and it was perfect for us. beautifully decorated, well stocked, very comfortable bed, and a great balcony overlooking the ocean. there is a tree that blocked a small part of the view while sitting on the balcony, but we could still see on either side of it and spent most of our time sitting out there. great for watching the gorgeous sunsets. Ralph's grocery store is right across the street so I could pick up anything we needed very conveniently. short walk into town. beach towels,chairs and umbrellas available for guests. Jason arranged our reservations easily. Bianca, the manager on the property was SO helpful and compassionate when my mother became ill and needed to go to the hospital. she went above and beyond!!! I can't say enough complimentary things about the retreat! I hope to stay there again next year!
I had an exceptional stay at the Retreat in Laguna Beach!
The reservation process was easy and Jason was accommodating and flexible.
I was fortunate to reserve one of their ocean front villas (Villa Leone). The villa was immaculate, extra comfortable, well stocked with quality items, tastefully decorated, and everything was in working order. It was great to hear the ocean all the time. I actually walked across the street to Ralph's and bought the fixings for a great dinner that I enjoyed while watching a fabulous sunset from my deck. I used one of the Tommy Bahama beach chairs, and a beach towel (provided for guests) to spend an afternoon on the beach which is a two minute stroll using the private access corridor behind the villa.
I stayed there by myself for three nights and felt very safe. I took walks through the town at all hours of the day and night. I had great dining experiences at several local restaurants.
I received excellent service from Ryan at check in and throughout my stay. Bianca was a sweetheart and went over and above to accommodate my requests.
My son attends college in Irvine and I will be make sure to reserve a villa at the Retreat in Laguna the next time I visit.
Everything about this place was near perfect. I worked with Jason to confirm and set up the reservation and later with Bianca regarding the check-in process. Both were extremely thorough and went through every detail with me before arrival. Given this, I shouldn't have been surprised that upon arriving and checking out the amenities that once again every detail seemed to have been considered. Sometimes its the little things...like a kitchen that is stocked with all of the utensils that guests are likely to need (including a full bag of ground coffee!)...or a throw blanket...or extra towels and pillows...or the storage closet full of everything one would need on a beach...like beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, sand toys. The place was also sparkling clean and in beautiful condition throughout. And then there is the absolutely perfect location in central Laguna beach, within walking (or free trolley service) distance of pretty much everything. And the fact that the unit is perched atop a cliff so close to the Pacific ocean that the sight and sound of crashing waves was the soundtrack for a perfect weekend staycation. Will most definitely be back!
