About the Property
Walk to beach and downtown from this sunny accommodation in cool San Clemente
Casita Laurita is a room in a 70 year old typical San Clemente beach bungalow in the older section of town.It's located on a street that leads down to popular T-Street beach, one of the most famous surf spots in the world. The owner, lives at the other end of the house and is available 24-7 for her guests.
I don't believe in "extra charges" for early check-in or late check-outs. They are always possible if I don't have a same day guest on those days. In addition, I always have a welcome gift with wine/beer (whatever you choose) waiting for my guests upon arrival.
There is a large patio area with barbecue grill, seating area, perfect for relaxing in the afternoon after a day at the beach or sightseeing around our beautiful 'Spanish Village By The Sea'.
From Casita Laurita it's a short walk everywhere: famous T-Street beach, downtown, bars, restaurants, grocery store. The Amtrak train makes daily stops at the pier to take you Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara and other coastal cities. The #1 bus at the end of the street will take you all the way up the coast to Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Surf City USA (Huntington Beach) and beyond!

Downtown hosts a monthly Village Art Fair, a Sunday Farmer's Market and specialty shops to keep you busy all day.
If you want to venture away from town, we are close to everything! Take a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 101) driving north along the beautiful coastline, in minutes you'll be at Dana Point Yacht Harbor, then the popular Art Colony of Laguna Beach, Balboa Island and Newport Beach. Further on, but less than an hour to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Huntington Beach (Surf City U.S.A.) and just a little further to Hollywood, LAX, Universal Studios.
If you head south from SC, visit beautiful San Diego and its surroundings, La Jolla and other beach towns along the coast. About one hour east is Temecula Wine Country, Old Town Julian, also a little over an hour away in the mountains.
Remember this song? - 26 miles across the sea....Santa Catalina is waiting you! Catch the early morning Catalina Express from Dana Point and in 1.5 hours you are in another southern California treasure. The 5 pm ferry should get you back to San Clemente in time to unwind at our popular Fishermans Restaurant and bar on the pier, to watch the sunset, enjoy a cocktail and share stories of an unforgettable holiday on the California Riviera.

Why the Owner Chose San Clemente, CA, USA:
I've always loved the 'southwest' section of San Clemente, the older, sought after area close to well known surf spots and pristine beaches. From the moment I stepped foot into this house, I knew it would be my 'home' for a very long time. And now I welcome guests from around the world to share in this little bit of paradise, San Clemente Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
The casita is walking distance to the beach, pier, downtown, shops, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, train stop (catch the train to LA or San Diego right from the pier!)
