Acquired by Twin Rocks in 1978, Harbor Villa Retreat Center is a five-unit oceanfront facility ideal for small retreat groups and family reunions of 10-40 people. Each year Harbor Villa welcomes over 2,500 retreatants who come to enjoy the beautiful Pacific Ocean just a few footsteps past Harbor Villa’s front yard.
Each of the three large beach homes, the Lighthouse, Anchorage, and Harbor House, comes equipped with full kitchens, so groups can do their own cooking, and comfortable sleeping, living, and dining areas. Additionally, there is an outdoor campfire ring with seating, a tetherball, a horseshoe pit, and barbeque grills. Our two smaller units, Captain’s Cabin and Lower Deck, may be rented in combination with the larger homes when additional housing is needed.
