Our 1955 beach home has been beautifully remodeled inside and out. Whether your looking for a family vacation stay or a place to get ready for your wedding, (the Ole Hansen Beach Club and The Casino are within walking distance), our home is perfect!

The backyard it perfect for entertaining with it's outdoor kitchen area for BBQ'n and it's over the top spa to ease the tension of everyday life. It is just 1 block away from the Ole Hansen Beach Club and The Casino and just a 3-4 minute walk to the ocean shore. The beginning of the beach trail which leads to the San Clemente Pier is also a 3-4 minute walk away. North Beach is the name of the beach and it has a playground for the kids, volleyball net, firepits, snack bar and bathroom too.

There also is a Amtrack train station at North Beach. Just a short walk away there are a few restaurants, sandwich shops, a coffee house and a convenience store. The Dana Point Harbor is just minutes away. Disneyland is about a 40 minute drive north. SeaWorld and other San Diego attractions are about a 45 minute drive south. The Mexican border is just 1 hour away. Our family lived in this home for years and with 8 children we just outgrew it. We love this home and it's easy access to the beach. We hope you enjoy it a much as we did!!!

About Lori McLaughlin

My husband and I bought this home is 1997. It was our first home together. We love the beach and we were so fortunate to be able to buy so close to it. As our family grew we knew we would have to relocate but the thought of selling our beach home made our hearts ache. So we decided to fix her up and let others enjoy what we had for so many years. We hope you will get the rest and relaxation you need while at our beach retreat!

Why Lori McLaughlin chose San Clemente

We chose this location because of the close location to the beach.

What makes this house unique

We love to go on walks or runs along the beach on the new beach/bike trail that the city of San Clemente built. The kids can ride their Razors or bikes and it's fun for the whole family. It takes you straight to the San Clemente Pier where there is a great restaurant called The Fisherman. You can have a nice dinner or sit on the bar side to have appetizers and a cold drink. The sunsets are amazing especially in the late summer/early fall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To add a few comments to Nick's glowing have a great eye for detail and remembered even the little things that made the house so special. My daughter loved the story books, games, and we all loved the smores you left us! The fresh cut flowers, extra linens and beach toys were also appreciated. Having everything on hand made our vacation that much more enjoyable at a time in our lives when we really needed it. We will be back!

Fun 4th and Wedding in San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

We rented this fabulous house for the week. It was for the 4th of July and and wedding the following Saturday. We could not have picked a better place. We had 5 kids ages (3-12) and 7 adults. My Grandmother who was 94 yrs old ended up staying with us too. She loved it. She was able to maneuver everything on the ground floor. (shes pretty spry for her age.) I don't think she would have liked being in a stuffy hotel/motel. Here she felt at home, and at that age is pretty important. There were toys for the kids to play with. The waterfall hot tum is much larger than the picture makes it seem. It could fit about 15 adults comfortably. This was such a nice feature to come back to and relax from a long day of exploring. We had coffee every morning around the outdoor fireplace. It made for a delightful morning sitting around the stunning tropical view of the yard. It really is tropical!

The house really did have everything we needed. Linen's, towels (bath and beach towels) all kitchen equipment. I even made cupcakes on the 4th! Everything was there. And Everyone had a place to sleep! There are so many beds its ridiculous! Even sleeper sofa's and a sleeper chair! There was also inflatable mattresses too! We didn't need those. This location was in walking distance to the wedding venue at the San Clemente Casino, and our ultimate favorite morning treat Elly's Table. So delicious! It truly made for the perfect week. Lori and Tom were always very quick to respond if there were any questions. Can't say enough great things. We even used the bicycles (there are 5 of them), Plenty of beach toys, the backpack beach chairs AND the surfboards. Having access to these made it so much better at the beach. Thank you Tom and Lori for a truly memorable stay!!! We WILL be back!!!

Perfect house for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a family vacation of 6 adults and 1 child. The house had all the needed items - silverware, pots & pans, plates, knives, paper towels, toilet paper, bedding, bath towels, hot tub towels plus items we do not normally see in rentals - zip lock bags, aluminum foil, washing machine soap and fabric softener.

We loved having beach chairs, beach toys and bikes for our use. It was a very nice touch.

The BBQ was great as well.

One of the downstairs bedrooms was perfect for kids with 3 beds and plenty of books, game and toys for kids.

The hot tub was the biggest hit. It is larger than the picture portrays and the waterfall was awesome.

Two fire pits as well.

My only issue was the lack of a closet in one of the bedrooms. A clothing rack like the one in another bedroom would have been appreciated.

All in all, it was great. I would recommend this house to anyone. The location was perfect to hit Sea World, Legoland, Disney and multiple beaches.

The owners take very good care of the home.

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and was a perfect place for me to entertain out of town wedding guests. My sister made the wedding cake in the kitchen. Everyone who stopped by commented on what a great space it was. We even got to enjoy the hot tub!
