Great family trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Casa Royal for our trip this summer! The house is huge...the backyard and pool are amazing. We went to the beach...we dined out in San Clemente cooked at lot at home. I was working on the trip and the home office was great, as well as the short ride to the train station to commute to the office. Talega is a great neighborhood and this house is amazing. We didn;t want to leave!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My 3 boys did not want to leave this house. They each loved having their own bathrooms, loved the pool/hot tub, games, and 15 minute drive to the beaches. They learned to surf from a great instructor at Lucid Surf. It was hard to leave. We had their cousins over for an afternoon of swimming, and they didn't want to leave, either. We'd definitely want to stay here again, on another visit to San Clemente. Thank you, Royal family, for the memorable vacation.

Beautiful and spacious!!

  • 5 of 5

We want to thank Dawn and her family for sharing their beautiful home with us! We stayed for a month...we were a family of 6... We rent a lot in Southern California and this by far was the most spacious, inviting, beautiful home we have ever stayed at. We had everything we needed and more. Our kids had their space and we had ours. They had everything for the kids. Dolls, wii, tv, endless board games, movies...etc...Master suite was so spacious... Loved the large bathroom and walk in closet!!So many bedrooms and bathrooms...the weather was perfect... 75 degrees and ocean breezes ... Close to the beaches, pier and shopping..Rarely used the air conditioner. Pool, hot tub, and fire pit were excellent! Dawn was very kind and gracious. Thank you very much for your hospitality. Will definitely be staying again!!

Multi Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family has always wanted to visit California and we wanted to stay where we could visit both Los Angeles and San Diego, This home had everything we were looking for. It was almost equally distant between the two cities and it was spacious,very clean and well maintained. It slept 9 people comfortably. We LOVED the backyard pool area. It has a well stocked kitchen and ample parking for 2-3 cars. The neighborhood was quiet and located close to many walking trails. It was a short drive to the San Clemente pier and downtown area which contains ample shopping and dining options.The owners were very prompt in answering any phone calls or e-mails we had prior to renting the home and also while we were there. In the week we were there,some of the attractions we visited were Legoland, Disneyland, and the Mission in Capistrano. In the kitchen, there was a very helpful book on how to operate many of the appliances/grills/pools/hot tubs etc. and it also highlighted the some of the local dining and attractions.We would definitely recommend this lovely home to any of our friends or relatives.

Legoland Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house and great location. The house was big enough for my 2 adult children and their families...and nobody felt crowded or in each other's way! My 4 grandchildren enjoyed the pool for many hours a day. The pictures of the house are accurate....and it is beautiful. It is close to everything, the beach, Disneyland, Legoland and San Diego. The owner Dawn was very helpful in answering all my questions. The property was very clean and well-maintained. The only suggestion would be to bring a queen arrow-bed if you have 3 families so that everyone has a decent bed...the queen arrow-bed does fit in one of the bedrooms so all adults would have their own room. Each bedroom does have there own bathroom.
