About Russell and Lisa Parks
We met 26 years ago at a Club Med in Mexico and have loved the beach and travel ever since. Russ has been a hairdresser for 46 years and I have an after school and summer art program here in San Clemente for the past 15 years. We love the Spanish Architecture and history in San Clemente as well as the ease of walks and hiking on the trail by the beach or in the surrounding hills.
Russell and Lisa Parks purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Russell and Lisa Parks chose Rancho San Clemente
Russell and I have lived in San Clemente for 21 years.. having raised our daughter Autumn here we became very involved in the community and fell in love with the little Spanish Village by the Sea... its rich history and charm have made us proud to live here. We have several rental properties and had one other we listed through VRBO with much success.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are blessed to live at this location with our 3 pups... The view is breath taking .. we wake up to it and count our blessings.. the sunsets make you believe in magic... true magic. We love walking down to the trail with our 'boys'... they love it to! Every Sunday we walk to the Farmers Market for our weekly fruit and vegetables. We also enjoy venturing down in the evening for dinner at Vine (our favorite) or a cheese platter and a glass of wine at The Cellar. Or a cold beer at Ole's. The festivals are a favorite of ours.. the Ocean Festival... the Chowder festival..sooooo many fun things to do and to see.. the Arts and Craft Fair the first Sunday... the art at the SC art gallery at the Community Center. We treasure this home and its location we hope you will too!

Loved The Hidden Treasure
We had a great weekend with a clean, comfortable house and warm hosts! We would definitely recommend The Hidden Treasure!
Wonderful Hospitality! Very Comfortable!
Russ and Lisa spoiled us! They had the futon and an air bed waiting for us when we arrived. We found yummy snacks and drinks! The unit was very clean and comfortable. We spent very busy days at Disney and Universal and we were so thankful to have such a beautiful home to relax in after the parks. We spent one day in beautiful San Clemente enjoying the beach, the shops and the trolley! Everything was perfect and Lisa was super helpful with anything we needed. We would stay here again!

Hidden Treasure was wonderful! Very clean and had everything we needed! Lisa&Russ were perfect hosts
Lisa & Russ were the perfect hosts and the Hidden Treasure was a wonderful place to stay! They left a welcome basket full of goodies which was so sweet! I felt very much at home there! Everything was very clean (and I'm kind of a clean freak) and decorated beautifully! The bed was really comfy...I loved the comforter! The view out the window was amazing! The walk into town was just down the hill and around the corner! The shops downtown are fun and quirky! We ate at LaRoccos pizzeria and it was so yummy!! Just another few blocks and you were at the San Clemente Pier! Beautiful waters and lots of surfers! Another day We had breakfast at the Fisherman! What a great view and delicious food!
