This darling two bedroom, one bath apartment is half a block from the beach and pier. French doors in the living room and dining room open onto the large sunny deck shaded by market umbrellas. The deck has a limited but lovely ocean view and is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon sun-tanning or relaxing evening barbeques.
Fully furnished with summery and comfortable colors and fabrics, this apartment sleeps six people (one queen, one full, and one queen fold-out couch in the living room--and after one guest's negative review I have replaced previous sofa bed with a more comfortable sleeper sofa), has two TV's, a full kitchen, beautiful new tile in the bathroom, natural wood beam ceilings and refinished original oak floors. There is parking for two cars (one garage space and the driveway in front of it), and a coin-operated laundry in the building. Beach chairs, sand umbrella and boogey boards are provided for your convenience and seaside pleasure.

Additional information about rental rates
Winter is for settling in, for getting comfortable, for making a winter nest in sunny and cloudy San Clemente.
Winter is for snowbirds! For grandparents, for workers on long assignments, and for the temporarily displaced.
I prefer to rent the entire winter to the same tenant, from sometime in September to sometime in June.
Policy available by contacting owner when booking.

Year Purchased: 1971
Why the Owner Chose San Clemente: My mom bought this charming property in the 1970's because it is close to the beach and pier and to the cute shopping and restaurant district of Avenida Del Mar, the downtown of San Clemente. The apartment was built in the 1950's and still has that authentic old California beach feel. The ceilings are weathered light wood. The wood floors are refinished original oak. The big deck is the outdoor living room.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The French doors that open onto the big deck double the summertime living space. It is fun to watch the world go by down on the street as you bbq and relax up on the deck. The apartment is half a long block away from the entrance to the pier. It is just close enough to be able to run down to the beach in about 90 seconds (you can walk and take a little longer), and just far away enough to be a great bargain. Also, because I try so hard and succeed in getting great permanent tenants in the other four units, the climate of the building is friendly, quiet and responsible. I have a fondness for buying original art when it isn't too expensive, so the apartment is like an art gallery with dear paintings on every wall.
