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 condo 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"

Comfortably, tidy, well equipped 2 BR in great location with beautiful view.

  • 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!

Great Beach Location in San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two grown children) stayed in Unit B upstairs and had a wonderful visit in San Clemente! Victoria was very diligent about communication, the unit was clean and ready when we arrived, and couldn't have been in a better location. Easy stroll down to the beach and San Clemente pier, plus a small park across the street behind the unit. We used it to stretch before jogging/walking on the trail along the beach (a 2.3 mile stretch with beautiful views)...park would also be nice if you had smaller children. Did some surfing in the area and ventured up to Laguna Beach area & down to San Onofre, both great day trips. Unit had everything for a week in San Clemente. Victoria was very accommodating with an early arrival and flexible with our day of departure, great hostess! We'll definitely be back and expect we'll try the lower Unit A next trip to enjoy the seating area facing the ocean.

Owner's Response: Ed you are more than kind! I love your idea of trying each unit. Some guests love one and then they try the other and find something to love about that one. Thank you!

The best in San Clemente! Casa Azul is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay at Casa Azul! Perfect location! Walkable to everything, yet just far enough away from the main street activity to be quiet and peaceful. Amazing views! Well maintained and comfortable. Everything you could possibly need (and a place to park too, which is nice). Victoria is the best owner I have ever worked with, kind and accommodating. I can't imagine a better place to spend time enjoying lovely San Clemente!

wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just perfect, simple but with all amenities one could want.

The beach close enough to listen to each evening,

The town's street winding around and around,

The Spanish architecture everywhere,

all so romantic.

great stay and we plan to visit again before the end of the year....
