About the property

3br+4ba, Sleeps 6: outside; Decks, Patio's, Loggia, Fireplace, Table/6

We're located out of the beach noise and congestion, but yet so close. We built our custom home in 2002. It has everything from a fabulous location to every amenity we could think of. The front has a large entertaining ocean view deck; if the breeze picks up you can go to the back to a protected outside dinning table for 6, a loggia-a sitting area with a couch, chairs and coffee table. If you feel like getting extra cozy you can sit in front of the outside fireplace with a table for 2. There is a built-in gas BBQ in a lush garden setting with water fountain. The back patio is large and as enticing and enjoyable as the front view.

The house has an island kitchen with a ocean view. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with Viking oven & gas range, GE built-in refrigerator, walk-in pantry, dishes, and condiments. Off the kitchen is a breakfast room with TV & table for 6-8. The living room has a ocean view with tucked in bar & stools. Off the living room is a formal dinning room for 8-10. As the man of the house I am most proud of the 70' flat screen TV, stereo system with custom built-in speaker surround that will rock the house. Also there's WiFi (strong connection thru-out home & yard), iPod hook-up, blue ray, CD carousel, Net Flix, HBO, etc.

The master suite is large w/ ocean-golf view, king size bed, a private sitting room area just off the master with views to die for. The m/bath has oversize tub, walk-in 2 headed shower, his and her vanities and a 3 sided mirror make-up counter with stool.

The other 2 bedrooms are extra large with their own bathrooms-tub and showers.

The home is extra cozy with 4 fireplaces, liv Rm, TV Rm. Master Bd Rm, and a built-in patio fireplace just off the loggia Room.

The home has a built-in filtering and soft water systems through out also with circulating hot water for all baths and kitchen. We also have reverse osmosis purified water for the kitchen, ice maker and bar.

About Doug or Cheryl

Last summer we were rented every week. We will be spending the summer in Laguna Beach about a 1/2 hour away. We will be taking care of our grandchildren while our daughter and husband are traveling on business. We will be close enough to help out or answer any questions that you might have during your stay. Cheryl and I both grew up in southern calif and have lived in San Clemente since 2000. I play golf and the SC course here never gets old. The weather here is perfect and even if you go out as a single they will hook you up with some great groups. It's never failed.

Doug or Cheryl purchased this house in 2002

Why Doug or Cheryl chose Orange County

We couldn't believe our luck when this lot, in 2000, became available in such a desirable area. We could now build our dream house and locate it perfectly to the view and weather rather than remodel an older home and make do. We completed the house in 2002 and we love it. We have the view, the layout and the gardens.

What makes this house unique

From our sitting room off the master suite you can see where the old Nixon estate was. You can also see trestles surfing beach. If you have never been to old man's state surfing beach you must go. There's an old dirt parking lot under the San Onofre cliffs steps to the beach. It's like going back to the 60's with long boards and palm trees.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed a week here over the Christmas holidays. The house was everything we could have asked for--open spaces, room for all without being crowded, lots of amenities (varied eating spaces-outside fountains-big screen TV-and fireplaces to name a few), great views, convenient location, it had it all. To a person we all enjoyed the house and would come back in a heartbeat.

Nighmare at this custom home!

  • 2 of 5

we arrived as a family in the evening with no one to welcome us or indeed to show us how things worked in the house, we had a long drive to get to this place.

on arrival it seemed very nice, until we got inside and realised it was like the owners were still there with us, this was due to the fact that the wardrobes were locked and the walk in dressing rooms were locked and they had left us totally inadequate pop up clothes rails,which I thought was a cheap way of doing things.

besides, there was 5 of us staying at the house and we were in the USA for 3 weeks and had a lot of luggage with us so we had nowhere enough hanging space to hang up the 3rd bedroom(which was actually an office) everything was locked so no where at all for drw space to put kids clothes away.

anyway to cut a long story short, we left after a week and doug and Cheryl had agreed to give us a weeks money back...and shameful to say despite many many requests for the money to be returned to us they have ignored my last 3-4 emails requesting a return of the money, and I find this to be dishonest and has stunned us as a family.

after many years of renting villas in the USA with no trouble at all and to suddenly have no more communication back regards the refund is terrible.

doug or Cheryl did say that there was a fault with the A/C switch which they blame on us for breaking...but again we were not told at the time this was broke and I think they were simply looking for an excuse not to return our weeks money to us.

No one ever informed us that there was NO A/C in the house and no one was there when we arrived to show us how things worked the A/C


a very very disappointed marc from Ireland....!!!!

Owner's Response: TOTALLY UNFOUNDED COMPLAINT: The moment the guests arrived they fabricated excuses to get out of the 2 week rental agreement. It was obvious they wanted an early departure so they could spend the second week in San Diego. They found fault with everything. If you look at our reviews they are all glowing 5 star. We have only had complements on our helpfulness and the comfort of our home. The guests arrived late at night. They were informed before that no one would be there at that hour. We had previously informed them their would be a "Welcome Book" of instructions on the kitchen island. The following morning a friend spoke with him to see that everything was OK and the complaints started. All 3 bedrooms have ample storage. Large dressers, closets w/ample hanging space. We have NEVER HAD A COMPLAINT about closet space. All bedrooms have their own private bathroom. The description of the house shows there is no AC. Most homes on the coast do not have or need AC. The guest did not read the homes description. We did not say there was a problem with the AC since we do not have an Air Conditioner. The rental agreement which the guest signed states there is no refund for early departures; he left one week early. On the day he left, he told us he and his family were going to spend the week in San Diego. He was given his $800.00 Refundable Security Deposit the day he departed, one week early. We are sorry the guest was unhappy, but there is no refund for an early departure. The 2 years that we have been on VRBO we never had to hold back security deposit money. The money not returned was for rent, which he forfeited by choosing an early departure. We hope this answers any concerns caused by this unfounded accusation. Thanks, Doug & Cheryl

Comfortable San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

This well designed home with numerous comfortable living features added to a very pleasant stay in the San Clemente area. The home is in nice quiet neighborhood with many views of the Pacific Ocean and golf course from two decks and nice little alcoves. we especially enjoyed the back patio in the morning with its fountain and beautiful setting.

If you want to stay in San Clemente, look no further...

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay if you are planning a visit in San Clemente. The house is clean, quiet, comfortable, new and has everything you need. The view is awesome, you can enjoy watching the sunset over the ocean every evening. There is ocean breeze going through the house keeping the air fresh and the temperature cool and comfortable. The place is 5 min drive from best surfing spots and 10 minutes drive from best restaurants. Yet it is quiet and away from noise and congestion. I highly recommend this house...

Beautiful home. Relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, spacious, well-apportioned and above all, relaxing. We loved our time there, and made great use of the ocean-view decks, lovely backyard, and excellent kitchen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review. There are so many decks, patios and rooms to relax in it's hard to choose. My favorite is the sitting room off the master with a full ocean view overlooking the green fairways of SC golf course. I'm happy to hear you had great stay. Thanks, Doug & Cheryl

Fantastic San Clemente Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in Doug and Cheryl's beautiful house for two weeks. We would've stayed a third if it wasn't already booked. Everything was first class in this home...from the second we walked in until the moment we locked up and left. We spent almost every night grilling out and enjoying the Tuscan feel of the back patio, so beautiful! We felt like we were in Italy, and enjoyed our wine almost every night by the outdoor fireplace. We were treated to lime and lemon trees on the side, fresh vegetable garden, & fresh spices! The back patio was our favorite, but the inside was just as beautiful! The kitchen, amazing! The master! We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave! San Clemente is a really fun area, such a laid back beach town! The beaches were perfect for our kids to play in the waves, and so close! We checked out the community water park one day, which our kids loved! The grocery store is right down the road, the pier is so close and there are so many restaurants to chose from! We had dinner at Nicks one night, which we would totally recommend! We stayed here over the 4th, and we were able to watch the fireworks from the front balcony! We actually saw about 5 different firework shows all up the coast, so neat! We drove down to San Diego one day, and went to Sea World!

I have never missed a vacation rental before, but this one..... I do. Everything about this house was amazing, and top notch!

You can tell Doug and Cheryl put so much love and thought into this home! Unforgettable stay! Thank you!!
