Property description

Charming Casa Mira Mar, home by the sea, awaits your visit. In this recently remodeled historic home that has room for up to eight guests, you are minutes walking distance from the village and beaches of San Clemente. While enjoying the comforts of home, you can explore the world class surfing beaches and extensive trails, marvel at the sunsets, discover the delights of local restaurants and shops, and still find time to venture north or south for further amusements. For more ideas check out our personal website (link located below).

Casa Mira Mar’s front door opens to a spacious, high-beam ceiling living room with original wood floors, a traditional “beehive” fireplace, media center, and wireless internet. The main floor of the house includes a small but fully outfitted modern kitchen, dining room with table that expands to seat eight, as well as three bedrooms and one and one-half bathrooms. The second floor accommodates additional guests with its full bath, bedroom, and separate private living space.

An open sky deck, on the third floor, with 360 degree views of the sunrise and sunset, ocean, off-shore islands, and the hills, nightlights, and neighborhoods of San Clemente is an additional bonus. The courtyard jacuzzi and patio complements Casa Mira Mar’s outdoor space and encourages you to take advantage of the more than 342 days of San Clemente sunshine. Tropical plants, red-tiled roofs, and colorful Spanish tile delight the senses and take you to a time and place when the living was slower and easier.

What’s life like at Casa Mira Mar? Imagine your day beginning on the front porch in the morning sun with a good cup of coffee and newspaper in hand. Or perhaps you choose to wander into town for a leisurely breakfast while sitting at an outdoor café to enjoy the ocean breezes and watch the community wake-up.

Later, a short walk will quickly take you to a local beach where you, friends and family alike can watch the surfers or enjoy your own recreational activities. Another option is to get in your car and explore one of the other local towns—Laguna, San Juan Capistrano--or beaches—San Onofre and Trestles are two favorites. And a little father north or south you can find Disneyland, Universal Studios, Legoland, Sea World, nationally acclaimed theaters, and of course the world renown San Diego Zoo. The Orange County Airport is about 30 minutes away by toll road so you can easily pick up a friend that may join you for your week by the sea. Some of your party may chose to golf at the local public course, others may want to go whale watching, the possibilities are endless!

After a busy day, you have time for the sunset from Casa Mira Mar's view roof deck followed by a candlelight dinner on the patio (though San Clemente’s restaurant choices are tempting too). Evening’s activities may include a family game, favorite TV show, movie, or book in front of the living room fire or perhaps a play at our local Cabrillo Theatre, a block from the house. The day comes to an end with either a soak in the hot tub or star gazing from the roof deck. And then it starts all over again! View our personal website with more pictures and information to see why our guests, family and friends return to Casa Mira Mar over and over again.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Many years ago my husband and I met in Southern California and although we moved to the cold north and have enjoyed full careers and an active family life in Alaska, we have loved regular visits to the beaches of our youth. We dreamed of owning our own beach home and when our daughter landed in San Clemente, we decided to return to the coast. Finding an historical home close to the village and beach was the 'icing on our cake.' When we can't enjoy our home by the sea and all the delights of San Clemente and Orange County, we like to share it with others.

Why the Owner Chose San Clemente, CA, USA:
As third generation Californians, we've always appreciated the state's rich history. So when we had the opportunity to purchase one of the few existing historical homes, envisioned by the city founder, Ole Hanson, we jumped at the opportunity to 'live' this part of San Clemente's original history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With its close proximity to both the village and the beach, we chose Casa Mira Mar over many other options available to us. We loved our little house but after a few years, we decided to renovate and expand it with a second floor 'casita' to accommodate our growing family. We also added a third floor sky deck because of our family tradition of gathering to watch evening sunsets. It is now perfect and we hope all our guests who chose to stay here will agree.
