San Clemente - Great Place to Stay
"We stayed in this beautiful condo for 6 days and 5 nights. It turned out to be the perfect place for us to stay.
The pictures accurately reflect what the condo looks like. Everything was clean and in working order. We chose not to cook, but we could have easily done so since the kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. The condo was very comfortable and we felt very safe. A big plus was the reserved parking space in the underground garage! Parking is difficult in this area, but we never had to worry since we knew we had our assigned parking space waiting for us when we returned from our outings!
We walked on the beach everyday and there are stairs leading from the small park next door down to the beach. We also enjoyed just sitting on the patio in the early morning and evening enjoying the beautiful ocean view.
The grocery store was close by as well as good restaurants and local shops. Our favorite restaurant was The Fisherman Restaurant on the pier. They actually have two restaurants....a casual one that does a great happy hour (M-F), and the other one with a more extensive menu. They seafood is fantastic and their portions are very generous!
We recommend going to Dana Point Harbor which is just a few miles north of San Clemente. There are some good restaurants there and you can take whale & dolphin watching boat trips. We spent the better part of the day at Dana Point Harbor.....went on a boat trip and saw LOTS of dolphins and then enjoyed a wonderful meal afterwards.
Overall, we had a wonderful trip and were extremely happy with our accommodations.
Eileen & Mike, the owners, were very helpful about recommending places to go. They were also very easy to work with on the rental. They had a welcome gift of fresh grapefruit and oranges from their own grove. We certainly enjoyed the fruit with our breakfast every morning!"

"Some months ago we were privileged to stay in this beautiful, comfortable two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo. Each room is charming with tasteful furnishings and artful decor. Linens are provided, the kitchen is equipped. There are books, cable TV, and board games. A lovely veranda provides a peaceful vista. The area is quiet and nicely landscaped with green belts for walking. A laundry facility is a few doors away, The condo is easy to find from one of the entrance gates on El Toro Road. All manner of shopping and restaurants are nearby as well as access to Route 5. The owners, Harrison and Rebecca are very gracious, helpful, and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this home away from home to friends."

"This condo unit was perfect for our family of four for a week in Orange County. It was a short ride to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm and the beach was spectacular all week. Strands beach is perfect for those who like to lay out, swim, body surf, boogie board, or surf and it's a short walk from the unit. The waves were great, the beach was clean, and the sunsets were beautiful.
The condo accommodations are perfect for a couple or small family. The pull out bed is ample for two and the CA King in the bedroom was comfortable. Dannelle was very accommodating and helpful in making sure everything met our needs. The kitchen was nicely set up with everything you need to cook at home. We also went out to some of the great establishments in nearby Dana Point and had great food all week. We went swimming at the beach and pool almost every day and we literally fell in love with the place. Having beach towels, beach chairs, and boogie boards available was a nice touch to make the place full service for enjoying the beach.
I highly recommend this Condo unit as a great place for a small family or a couple. We didn't want to leave!
P.S. The one and only negative review below doesn't make any sense. A small sampling of the other reviews will quickly tell you that."

"Stayed here with teenagers on Spring Break. The beach is just steps away. The bikes were great to get to either Balboa or Newport Piers. The rooftop patio was a perfect place to watch sunrise or sunset. Loved our stay!"
