About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Welcome to San Clemente the quaint village by the sea. You are currently viewing Casa Azul, the House by the Sea.

VRBO has created a new rental pricing format that doesn't always work correctly. Please contact me for the rate or see my rate chart.

Now lets talk about the rental! The casa is a duplex. There are two entirely separate living apartments distinctively decorated, one upstairs Apt 'B', one downstairs Apt 'A'. Each apartment has two bedrooms. We are in the best location in a quiet low density area of San Clemente just two blocks north of the pierbowl area, here it is much quieter. We have a nice open area and a great community park in the little canyon just steps below us. You can actually see and hear the waves even from inside the casa!

We have four gigantic five by eight foot windows that look out to the beautiful unobstructed view of the waves and ocean sunsets. There is nothing but fresh ocean air between you and the beach. At Casa Azul you will have your own patio, off street parking (a real commodity at the beach), and a feeling of comfort that comes from knowing you can walk to the beach, main street or pier all in a matter of minutes!

On Main Street, which is really named Avenida Del Mar, you will find great restaurants, craft fairs, farmers market, antique shops, and a hidden deli/sandwich shop called Billy's which is worth looking for! At the north end of Avenida Del Mar will be El Camino Real. Turn right here and you will find Antoines, get your morning coffee, anyway you like it and better than Starbucks, also delicious, healthy, exquisitely prepared breakfasts.

We are mid-way between Los Angeles and San Diego. Each a fantastic city to visit if you want to take a break from the beach. San Diego has a world class Zoo/Wild Animal park, along with fantastic public transportation to reach their harbor, complete with a pirate ship open for tours. There is a train stop in San Clemente that will take you to LA or San Diego and all points in between. Laguna Beach is just nine miles north. Here you will find picturesque rocky beaches, a world class artists colony with unusual summer festivals. Dana Point three miles north has a great harbor with tours for whale watching and sight seeing, you can rent your own watercraft here or get on the ship to Santa Catalina Island for a day tour of this California gem.

Stay at the casa and relax in beautiful San Clemente, don't tell anyone but this town is one of the best kept secrets in Southern California, with all the amenities you will need, or visit any and all of the interesting, enticing, sights of Southern California from your temporary 'home' at Casa Azul.

About Victoria

The casa has been a jewel in our family since the late 1960's. San Clemente has seen many changes since then. The city is on track to preserve the history of this little town in a fantastic way!

I took over the family duty of managing the casa several years ago and have been making improvements continuosly since. I love communicating with all the different guests and families who have shared the casa with us. My daughters are looking forward to taking over the reins someday in the future.

Victoria purchased this bungalow in 1969

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved this place. Its an easy walk to the beach and pier. The view of the islands was fantastic all day long. Fishing boats and surfers to watch. Excursions on to the Dana point harbor and fishing boats was an easy 15 minutes away. We traveled to San Diego for a day at the Gas Lamp Quarter and back easily.

It was very clean and lovely. Vicky the owner is delightful and very helpful with 'local knowledge"

  • 4 of 5

My wife, young son, and I have a very enjoyable four night stay at Casa A., which is the lower unit in this duplex. We loved that it is a short walk to a nice playground and the beach, as well as the shops and restaurants along Del Mar. The unit is clean and well equipped with beach chairs and toys. There is a nice patio right off the living/dining area that overlooks the playground and has a great ocean view. We appreciated that the building has laundry available to guests. The kitchen and baths are basic, but perfectly OK for a few days at the beach. San Clemente is also a good staging area for Disney and Lego Land if you don't want to stay in the thick of things in Anaheim and Carlsbad.

Owner's Response: Thank you Paul. I'm happy you were able to enjoy the walk-ability of our location. It's great to take a nice stroll to dinner or the pier and beach instead of taking out the car. We strive to keep our Casa as clean and fresh as possible and we are glad when we have great guests like you to share it with. Please come and stay with us again!

We loved out stay at Casa Azul

  • 4 of 5

The view was spectacular and you hear the gentle roll of the ocean as you drift off to sleep We loved having a carport for our car as the street gets filled up pretty quickly. The beds were extremely comformfortable with deluxe linens. The shower was strong with plenty of hot water. We would definitely stay here again and again and are hoping to come for a month next year.The furniture was a little tired but it just made it more comfortable.Ufortunately, we all three came down with the flu our last day there so were were unable to participate in the Christmas dinner we flew cross country for. Thank heavens the beds were deluxe and there was a great walk-in clinic in San Clemente that gave us Tamiflu and Antibiotics. We can't to some back when we feel better!!

Wonderful, relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet and clean! Victoria’s care and attention to detail is evident in this wonderful getaway. It was perfect for our family of 5. We loved the giant windows overlooking the ocean, watching the sun set over the water from our living room window, hearing the waves at night, and walking to the park, beach, and walking trail. We also walked to the pier, and to the restaurants and shops downtown. We loved how convenient everything was in this relaxed little town. We will absolutely be back!

Quiet and relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

This was a long weekend stay for our family. The location was perfect. Near the beach and Del Mar ave with shops and restaurants. The white water view and sounds of the waves were very relaxing. Victoria was very accommodating to our needs and worked with us on a mechanical problem that occurred during our stay. We will definitely stay there again if we have the opportunity.
