Looking for a big beach house for your family or vacation with friends? Combine the rental of this property, “Bret’s Beach House,” VRBO#376500, a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, side-by-side, tri-level duplex, with the unit next door, vacation rental #513949, “Shelly’s Beach House,” also a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, side-by-side, tri-level duplex. Each property has a private backyard and balcony with ocean view. Enjoy togetherness and privacy.

Our keyless entry makes it easy for a busy family going in different directions. Each family staying at the property has a unique code to use during their stay. If someone wants to go to the beach and others want to shop, there is not a worry about 'who has the key?'

Location, location, it’s all about the location when you are in San Clemente. And, 'Bret's Beach House,' this 3 bedroom/2 ½ bath, San Clemente beach house side-by-side duplex is the perfect location for your next vacation. A short 10 minute walk to the pier, the train station, and the beach, you are only a 5 minute walk from delightful restaurants, quaint shops, the Sunday farmer’s market, craft fairs, and other points of interest on famous Del Mar Street. Once you arrive, you can park your car and forget it. Enjoy walking and breathe in that cool ocean breeze!

If you want to plan adventures to Disneyland, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, the La Jolla Aquarium or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Clemente is centrally located between all those venues. Either direction you drive, your adventures are freeway close and about 45 minutes away.

Why stay at a cramped condo or apartment when you can stay at this spacious three-level beach home that sleeps 6 - 8 with room to spare? The top level includes a master suite with king bed, full bathroom, ceiling fan and private balcony looking towards the ocean (enjoy a morning cup of coffee while sitting outside on your balcony.)

The front bedroom features a queen bed (with cable TV in room), wall air-conditioning and the middle bedroom has two twin beds with ceiling fan. All the bedrooms have comfy beds and are beautifully decorated with new linens and bedding. If you need extra sleeping space, the sofa in the living room converts to a queen size bed. (A toddler bed and pack-n-play is also available if needed.)

The tiled main floor includes a large living room and ocean-view balcony. Sit back and relax with a cool drink as you watch the sunset every evening. Above the fireplace in the living room is a 47” big screen TV with cable including HBO and Netflix.

The cozy gas fireplace lights with the flick of a switch and keeps you toasty warm on cool nights. The dining room flows into a modern kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. A slider off the kitchen leads to the enclosed backyard.

The bottom floor includes a large laundry room with washer/dryer and 1-car garage (plus parking in driveway.) In the garage we have boogie boards, umbrellas, beach chairs, a rolling cooler, a big wagon for the kids, jogging stroller, sand toys, and two adult size beach cruiser bikes.

This home is perfect for the family that wants to relax and enjoy time together. The private backyard has a BBQ, outdoor dining furniture and umbrella.

San Clemente is an excellent place to cycle, golf, and surf near the pier. San Onofre surf beach and Trestles Beach are also close-by.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Bret and Michelle Howe welcome you to our beautiful beach home in San Clemente. Bret is an avid surfer and one day after surfing nearby he discovered this wonderful home for sale. We bought it and now enjoy it whenever we don’t have guests using it. We have three married children and five small grandchildren who love to share our beach house with us. San Clemente is a wonderful place for families and every weekend we find fun things to do within walking distance of our beach house. Bret and I are also cyclists and can recommend places to ride on your vacation. We live only 25 minutes away and know Orange County “like the back of our hand.”

Why the Owner Chose San Clemente, CA, USA:
Both my husband and I grew up in beach communities and we always wanted to have a home near the beach. We both fell in love with San Clemente when we started looking for our vacation beach home. You feel like you have entered another time and place of years ago when things were slower and people knew their neighbors. In fact, we met more neighbors in our first few weeks of San Clemente ownership, than we ever did in the 14 years at our other house. Everyone is so friendly; it’s like living in a small town where everyone knows your name.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This house is set up to be a vacation beach home for our family, so we do use it whenever it is not being rented. Because of this, we make sure everything is in tip-top shape and take note of what we can do to make your stay more pleasant. Probably the best thing about this house is its short walking distance to the beach, pier and Del Mar Street. We like to take long walks on the beach trails and take our grandkids to the wonderful parks close-by. Sunday mornings we walk along Del Mar to enjoy the farmer’s market and other activities happening every weekend. It seems like San Clemente has always got something going on nearby our house. We also love the fact that anyone can get here by train. The Amtrak Coaster stops right at the pier, just minutes from our house. Our guests can walk to the train station and hitch a ride to San Diego to visit the zoo or take the train north to visit Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, the Long Beach Aquarium or even Los Angeles.
