About Susan

We purchased this home as we live close by and have always loved the friendly feel of the beautiful San Clemente area.

As a family we have wonderful memories that have been created in the area.

Susan purchased this house in 2012

Why Susan chose San Clemente

We fell in love with this property because of it's location to the beach and downtown area. The home is also very well set up and we love the fact that it has an open garden feel to it.

What makes this house unique

Half a block from the beach. Walking distance to the pier along the beach. Beach path in both directions. Train station close by.

Although there is not a sea view from the house, the water is only a half a block walk away. House is very secure with front and back yard area.

Was a beautiful home that fit our family well

  • 4 of 5

Only concern was the amount of steps into the house. Hard on those with bad knees. No problem for the rest of them though.

Lovely home; incredible location

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience with this stay. Everything was easy with the owner. We loved how close we were to a stroll along the beach, downtown San Clemente restaurants, and the pier. We were 6 adults (3 couples) and there was plenty of room in the house.

Great Family Get-Togethers

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a reunion/get-together over the Thanksgiving holiday at Susan's place and it worked out great! Very comfortable house, plenty of space, a block from the beach, quick walk into town, great kitchen - in short, it worked perfectly for us. We won't hesitate to stay there again, should our travels take us to San Clemente. Thanks Susan!
