Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely experience with Marta and Alfredo! We were so welcomed and it was so great to spend some time getting to know them. We were told about a couple of beautiful beaches that we would have never found without them! It was ideal to have our own private bathroom right next to the bedroom and we were made to feel right at home. A perfect Air BnB experience and we'd love to return!

  • I loved staying with Marta and Alfredo in Laguna! We had an amazing time, I enjoyed their beautiful house and the wonderful community it is in. You are very close to everything you could need from shops to restaurants, and within minutes of incredible hiking and stunning beaches. Marta and Alfredo are the nicest, most kind and welcoming people - we loved meeting them and speaking with them about life and traveling. I am looking forward to visiting again in the future :) True paradise!

  • Marta and Alfredo were lovely, beautiful home with a comfy room and big tv in room as well as a fridge and micro wave also. We received a lot of information and help off them also and the house is in a great location only a 5-10 Minute drive from the beach. Would defiantly stay there again!

    I highly recommend staying with Marta and Alfredo. The whole experience was with out a doubt my best experience on airbnb. The quality of the hosts assistance during my stay was outstanding they went out of there way to help me and made my holiday brilliant. I felt so at home I did not want to leave . I also enjoyed the pool and hot tub on many occasions during my month stay here.The location is ideal and beautiful. Laguna beach has an amazing artistic community and many festivals and galleries to visit. The beaches are stunning particularly Treasure Island park beach in South Laguna which Marta kindly showed me and I will miss it so much. I met so many lovely people who are now my friends including Marta and Alfredo and intend to visit Laguna every year from now on. Thankyou for the holiday of a lifetime Marta and Alfred(phone number hidden)

  • I traveled for an extended business trip. I wanted to avoid 12 nights in a hotel so I opted for airbnb. The hosts immediately made me feel very welcome in their home. The accomodations are as advertised, and were conveniently located in the heart of southern Orange County. The DVR was very nice to have so I could record and watch all my favorite TV shows in the evening. The pool area was very nice as well. The laundry room and exercise area were just steps from my room, which was very nice.

    There were great parks and walking trails nearby.

    I would recommend this option for anyone looking for an affordable option that provides the ammenities of home on an extended stay.

  • We spent 5 months in Marta and Alfredo's house and we can for sure say that is the perfect place.
    Their house is amazing, very big and the swimming pool and the jaccuzzi are really nice. (I loved to spend time there !).
    The room and the bathroom are very private, comfortable and you'll quick feel like at home.
    Moreover, the location near all the beaches (Laguna Beach, Newport Beach...) and 1h by car from L.A, 1h30 from San Diego is amazing.
    Marta and Alfredo were the perfect hosts, always ready to help us, very kind and friendly, it was great to talk with them. We will definitly keep contact, we are so happy to met new friends even if at the end they were almost like our adoptive parents ! It is nice to know you can rely on them when you are so far from your home. So they were all the time available to talk but they also completely respect your private life, they are very discrete.

    For us, it was really hard to leave this house, first because we were completely accustomed, then because we had a really good quality of life in this house and finally because we had a great relationship with Marta and Alfredo.
    We really enjoyed our stay and I deflinitly recommand this place.
    Don't hesitate to rent a room in their beautiful house, you will not be desappointed!

  • We've a great & wonderful time staying over @ Marta & Alfredo lovely home. Due to some earlier changes in our itineries which only allow us to provide short confirmation notice in our booking reservation w/Marta.
    However, she's accomodation, efficient & available to get ready the room for us, and also a couple of transport arrangement before picking up our rented car.
    The home is warm & cosy w/all the beuatiful decor which made us felt very much at home. We been showered w/great breakfast and rich travelling experiences plus abundunts of help toward our online booking to our next stop over - Las Vegas.
    Not to forget the close distance from Soka University of America (SUA) has been our priority to stay in this location beside all the nearby amenities and a short drive to the beautiful Laguna beach.
    We once again have to thanks to Marta & Alfredo for their hospitality, warm & kindness over our stay over in this part of California - Aliso Viejo.

  • We had a fabulous stay with Marta and Alfredo. They were very warm, interesting to visit with, gracious, well traveled, and the house was beautiful, clean, and very welcoming.

    The location was ideal with lovely views and a short drive to the center of town and beaches. We felt like we were in Italy with the decor. The room was well appointed with a t.v., microwave, fridge, desk and lots of closet space. The bathroom was large and next to the bedroom. There was access to a gorgeous swimming pool and a gym and jacuzzi.

    We would highly recommend this lovely home and we hope to return to enjoy it again. We went for what was supposed to be an hour visit of the area and stayed for two days after we fell in love with it. Our hosts only added to the wonderful feeling we have for the area with their enthusiasm and calm energy. We will definitely be back!!!

  • marta and alfredo were extraordinary nice hosts to stay with! they are lovely, warm and welcoming people with an interesting international background. we enjoyed talking to them, having tea and coffee, and even playing tennis. they know their area more than well and can recommend you beaches, restaurants, places, relaxing places. also, the property is well located in a secure area with a parking lot, and there's a nice pool as well as a jacuzzi next to the house. their house is very cozy and clean and the room has a comfotable bed and a separate private bathroom. if you have a car you reach the beach within 10 minutes. newport beach within only 20 min where we went several times too. we spend some wonderful, sunny days in laguna beach and would recommend it to everyone who wants to spend time in that area.

  • This was my first Airbnb experience and it was so amazing, way better than I had expected it. First of all the Marta and her family are great people, they are more than friendly, helpful with everything, they know the area of Los Angeles and Orange County very well and gave me helpful information, they are open minded, well educated and talking to them was just a pleasure.

    The house was also very nice, centrally located, close to fabulous Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. My room was privat next to my bathroom. It had a LCD-TV, a queen bed, a desk, wi-fi, a refridgerator, a microwave, a walk-in closet and was next to the gym. I had best privacy at all times. The house itself is large with a nice architecture.

    The neighbourhood gives u a prestigious feeling, right when you turn into the driveway of the Gated Community entrance and the gate opens. You feel very safe and the neighbourhood has nice facilities, like a pool and a jacuzzi and also a little park.

    All in all it was a fabulous stay and if you want to life the lifestyle that is portrayed about O.C. on TV, this is the perfect place. Just that you have sophisticated, delightful and down to earth hosts, that really enjoy to have you as a guest!
