No more loading the car with beach gear, and no more renting equipment and searching for a parking space, ‘cause you are at the beach! After a beach day, enjoy a cocktail on your deck, or soak in the hot tub on the patio. From here, it’s also an easy 10-minute walk to Fisherman’s restaurant in the pier bowl area, or to T-street beach, or to San Clemente’s quaint downtown for shopping and restaurants. World-class surfing at Trestles and San-O is a 10-minute drive south.
This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located in a tranquil neighborhood, perfect for sleep-ins and peaceful evenings. Make yourselves at home sunbathing on your private deck, or entertain friends and family while bbq-ing or jacuzzing on your secluded patio. It is the essence of San Clemente beach, with bamboo flooring, palm trees, ocean breezes, and a free-flowing, indoor-outdoor atmosphere. It invites you to lounge outdoors on the deck, or relax inside on the leather sofas while watching a movie on the high-definition flat screen TV with surround sound and fully-loaded on demand options. The open and fully equipped kitchen offers bar-style eating or sit-down dining, with a direct view of your friends on the deck, or of the flat screen inside if you choose. Enjoy the wireless internet throughout, as well as centralized heating. In the master bedroom, sleep tight on your king-sized bed with an attached bath, or wander to the hot tub with direct access from this bedroom. All 3 bedrooms sleep 2 people each, with room for 2 more people. Each bedroom has its own high-def, flat screen TV with on demand, a ceiling fan and plenty of storage. Additionally, complimentary laundry facilities for your use only are located in the garage below. And, there’s parking for 3 cars directly in front.

About Bob Rountree
I moved to San Clemente in 1972 as a young boy and grew up in this beautiful sleepy little beach town. I love that San Clemente has maintained many of its great qualities as it has become very popular as a beach destination. I love the small town feel of it and its great beaches. I realized a dream when this property became available to me and allowed me to get this close to the water. I look forward to sharing that blessing with others while staying here.
Bob Rountree purchased this House in 2002
Why Bob Rountree chose San Clemente
This property is uniquely located close to everything, most importantly the beach and beach trail access. It has a very comfortable and open layout that captures the beach lifestyle and weather. Smelling the ocean and feeling the breeze on a daily basis is wonderful. If you are looking to take advantage of beautiful San Clemente and what it has to offer, you are in the heart of it here.

The house was clean and very well equipped. Has a nice deck for gathering about 8 people and the private patio in the back has a hot tub, picnic table and pub table for more gathering. Comfortable for our group and really enjoyed ourselves. The house is less than a block from the beach access walk way. The beach was cold but expected for this time of year so perfect for walks to the pier. Lots of good restaurants close by. It was a great stay and would definitely recommend.
Close to the beach and shops/ restaurants. Nice outdoor space. Good host communication.
Bob was a great host- easy to communicate with and accessible. Location is great and loved having laundry and parking onsite. Clean and lots of windows. Only downsides- some plumbing issues (fixed) and hot tub is loud. Otherwise a great stay
You see the sun sets were magic, the beach was close, what we found surprising was the beds, I slept so good. The street is relatively quiet, no traffic noise and you won't know there was a train close by. The beds were delish.
Perfect for a family beach trip
Bob was great and has thought of what a family would need who wants to have a beach vacation. Just a short walk to the beach with tons of surf and beach toys. Parking was awesome and the hot tub was relaxing.
first time to San Clemente.. what a gem... I recommend Escalones to anyone that enjoys the beach and surf. Bob is a great host and is responsive to any of your needs..
