Incomparable View From This Spacious and Art-Filled Condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month in Ken's beautiful home in March 2017. Everything was as advertised. The view was stunning. The apartment had been cleaned that morning, and a neighbor arrived within minutes to introduce herself and leave her number should we need anything.

We walked to the San Clemente Pier along the beach path daily. Each night promised a stunning sunset and a serenade by frogs in the canyon below. We used the fireplace to quickly warm the house each morning, then turned it off until the evening. We had access to wifi, cable, and Ken's collection of music and movies.

We cooked in the kitchen, did our laundry using Ken's washer and dryer, and toured the area while in San Clemente. We felt right at home in this quiet retreat.

Parking was good and there was easy access from the garage to the unit (no stairs). We visited San Diego, Dana Point, The City of Orange, New Port Beach, Crystal Cove State Park, viewed blooming wildflowers, and enjoyed the San Clemente farmer's market. The beach is just a few steps away. You'll have a great time in this beautiful condo.

Loved It Here

  • 5 of 5

Just finishing up a fantastic long weekend here in San Clemente. We were very happy with this condo. Spectacular views of the coastal canyon, ocean, and sunsets. Very spacious, very quiet, and great art everywhere. Quick easy walking access to San Clemente State Beach. Ken, the owner, was very accommodating and gracious. We will definitely stay here again.

Fabulous vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Last August we spent the entire month at Ken's property and had a wonderful, relaxing time. This is a beautiful and relaxing condo - huge, overlooking canyon and view of the ocean. We could hear the waves on occassion. Quiet, well appointed, with every - and I do mean every - amenity one could ask for in the kitchen. Better equipted than mine at home. Comfortable beds and huge communal areas = all open and bright. Washer and dryer were great additions. The shower was a delight for visiting grand children as it has verticle spray as well as shower head. Close to quaint historic downtown, which now has a Ralph's grocery store; restaurants; beaches; parks; etc. I agree with everything in the review by the previous renter. We have remained in contact with Ken - planning on returning soon. This is everything that is described and the pictures do not due it justice.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of July and had a great time.

We would recommend Ken's condo to anyone. The view is great, the patio has a large BBQ and because it is on a coastal canyon, sitting out in the evenings listening to the stream below, the frogs crocking and the ocean waves breaking just calls for a cocktail.Totally relaxing. I fell asleep several times.

The kitchen has everything you would at home an also a great view of the ocean.

It's just a short walk to the park that sits on the bluff overlooking the beach below with stunning sunset views.

Then down the stairs and your on the beach. There is a snack bar that has all the junk your kids could ever ask for. Beach days with the family are great!

Ken is a good guy and very easy to work with.

We can't wait for our next stay at this little gem in San Clemente.
