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!
This is my second time staying at The Retreat in Bella Mar Villa. I took my 84 year old mother for a week of relaxation. We spent most of our time sitting on the balcony watching the ocean. There are a couple of trees that partially obstructed our view, but we could see easily on either side of them. We were so close to the ocean that we could even hear the waves at night with the balcony door shut which we loved. Bianca, the manager, is so thoughtful and helpful and I knew if we needed anything, she would immediately take care of it. The location is perfect - an easy walk into town and right across the street from the grocery store. The Villa had all the amenities that we needed. It was like a home away from home. Definitely recommend it!
Great property....Great Views.....Met lots of quality people....Close to everything in town....
The Retreat in Laguna was perfect for my wife and me. Our villa faced the ocean with a nearly, 180 degree, unrestricted view of the ocean. We were so close to the water, I could have almost thrown a golf ball into the waves. The stairs to the beach access were about 100 yards from The Retreat. After a jog on the beach and a swim in the ocean with the boogie board, The Retreat provides, I was surprised to find there was a wonderful, hot water, beach shower. That was a first for me. We kept our door and windows open to hear the waves crashing on the sandy beach. The location was great. We walked to restaurants for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. We appreciated the complimentary passes for the three art shows and the "whale watching". We did drive to The Pageant of The Masters, but it was only about three miles away. The Retreat is tucked away in it's own little place so it was very peaceful, but on the other hand, a Ralph's grocery store is just a block away. We have a small dog and everyone there made us all feel welcome. Bianca, the manager, helped us with restaurants, places to shop and directions to everywhere we wanted to go. She was terrific. She even gave us a bottle of wine to help us start our vacation. We highly recommend The Retreat.
Spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean for "Our 30th Wedding Anniversary". From our bed we could sit up, see and hear the tranquil ocean. Our location was great, we could walk or take the city trolley to our destinations. Great shops, restaurants and loved our morning & evening walks on the beach. We were determined to relax and enjoy the views, and we did. Highly recommend the The Retreat in Laguna. We were there for 7 days, and could of easily stayed additional days. Bianca was "A1" in my books. She accommodated our requests, very friendly, very informative, with excellent "Customer Service". We are for sure returning to "our" Retreat. Thank you for making our 30th Anniversary special, one we enjoyed and will never forget.
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.
