This luxurious beach home is perfectly located in San Clemente, known for having the Best Climate on Earth. It is private, spacious and just 2 blocks from family beaches, the famous pier, firepits and swingsets. Five minutes away is Ave. Del Mar, where you will discover fabulous restaurants, antique shops, surf and swimwear shops and stylish boutiques. Our home is the perfect place for families, extended families or groups of friends to escape.

Filled with an eclectic mix of custom-made, vintage and new furniture, the home has something for everyone.

There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in all. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms are located upstairs, with a master suite and a jack-and-jill suite which is great for children.

About Stephanie Kamel

As a child growing up, my family, along with my grandparents, would rent a small apartment in San Clemente for 2 weeks every summer. We would surf-fish early in the morning with our grandpa, swim, run the beach or up the hills, walk around Del Mar, eat out and have a grand time. In 1988, my parents moved to San Clemente and my husband and I would come to visit, enjoying all the same activities in a down-to-earth atmosphere. Years later, we decided to build a home right next to my father so that we could enjoy San Clemente with our children and their grandparents, just as I did when I was a child.

Stephanie Kamel purchased this house in 2005

Why Stephanie Kamel chose Orange County

This is our dream beach home (no more 7 people sharing 1 bathroom), close to the ocean with a comfortable atmosphere. My father built our home and we were able to customize our home to make it a luxurious and fun place for families to gather.

What makes this house unique

Our home was built for our family, not with rental in mind, so you will enjoy the luxuries created for my family, not a place to 'herd people through'. We designed our home to enjoy with family and friends, creating open spaces to congregate and private room retreats when a little privacy is desired. Each room was specially appointed with a purpose-some for children and their friends, others for adults. Gourmet meals can be served on lovely dinnerware, platters etc. or paper plates can rule the day. Whatever is your family's delight. Then step out the door and walk 2 blocks to the beach, pier, or shops and restaurants on Del Mar. Everything is within reach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This had to be the best accomodations I've stayed at ever! My children and their friends were in awe of the place. Very short walk to beach! The home was tastefully decorated with high end amenities. It was pure pleasure staying there. I would recommend this rental highly.

This was our second stay in this incredible home for our large family. Everything was fantastic...again. Stephanie the home owner is a pleasure to communicate with and the home was as usual found in immaculate condition. We are hoping to be able to visit San Clemente for years to come - kids love it, we love it. Outdoor shower is a plus. Great to be such a close walk to the pier, beach, great restaurants. Home easily accommodated our family of 8 with kids ranging from 12-17yrs.

Immaculate home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house exceeded our expectations. Fully stocked and decorated with the highest quality items, including toiletry items needed during our stay. Met with a welcome basket and a hello from Stephen the property manager. Great communication at every turn with the owner as well. We loved the location and easy access to the beach, pier, train and restaurants galore. The front balconies were perfect for sunsets and an evening chat. The house easily accommodated our large family of 7 with room to spare. We can't wait to go back!

This house was the perfect gathering place for our reunion of family and friends. The house was beautiful and the owners considered every detail in making the stay comfortable and fun. It was an easy walk to the beach and to the town's bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this house for a great vacation rental.

We rented this gorgeous home to celebrate our 50 th wedding anniversary with our three children and their families. It was so perfect! We had the celebration dinner catered and the dining room was elegant! Our grandchildren range from one year to age eighteen so it was great to have boogie boards, bikes, etc for them to use. The kitchen table is a great spot for playing family games. We loved that the beach and pier were an easy walk from the house. The home is exquisitely decorated and maintained. We were fortunate to meet both Stephanie and Stephen. Both of them are so willing to answer questions and help in any way possible. This was our first time to rent a home and our experience was above expectations. We would recommend this home for a fun, beautiful vacation. The sunsets are out of this world!

Wonderful home in San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in San Clemente and had a wonderful time. The home was absolutely gorgous! Decorated beautifully, clean and so organzied. The owner was an absolute joy to work with. The manager was also wonderful to work with. We would highly recommend this home to large family, families traveling together or for couples. We had 3 children and 5 adults and it was perfect. We can't wait to get back to san Clemente and hopefully get this house again.

Wonderful place for our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a Swedish family who love to travel in the US. Last year we stayed in a hotel in San Clemente, but this summer we felt like renting a place to have more space. And it turned out to be just right. Staying in this house was so much better than staying in a hotel.

The house is lovely decorated and it is very clean and well kept. The photos on the website reflect everything in a truthful way. Each room is individually decorated in a lovely way and it is very easy to feel at home. The owners seem very anxious to make you feel welcome and are eager to answer any questions about the house and the surroundings. We loved the flowers and the chocolate and cookies that were there when we arrived to make us feel welcome. And Stephen, the caretaker of the house, was ever so kind and helpful.

We absolutely loved the feeling of being in a home instead of in a hotel and the kindness of the owner made it easy to relax although you actually are in someone elses house. We had most of our meals at restaurants except for a couple of times when we had friends over for a bbq. The kitchen was well equipped and the grill in the garden was excellent, according to my husband (and I guess he knows what he is talking about since he likes to grill steaks outdoors all year round in Sweden, even when it is snowing).

Another thing we appreciated was the boogie boards and beach towels and all the other beach stuff that was at our disposal. The beds were very comfortable and the linen and towels of high quality, which is very nice. During previous visits to California we have had great days at the amusement parks but this time we enjoyed just being around San Clemente. Having the space of a house gave us a much more relaxed holiday experience.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.
