About Todd Clark

I am a local business owner and have lived in San Clemente for the last 18 years. I have completely remodeled this home and landscaping over the past 14 years. Over this time my family has grown and we needed a bigger house, but there was no way I was ever going to sell it!

Todd Clark purchased this house in 2000

Why Todd Clark chose San Clemente

From the wood floors to the beautiful Mexican tiles and fountains... This is the most comfortable house you will find! It is an unbelievable place to be in the evening with the fireplace going while just had a BBQ an few margaritas and a dip in the spa.

Great San Clemente Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for a month and the house was great. I have dogs and the owner even built me a gate so they couldn’t get out. The house was great and had everything I could want. Thank you for your hospitality and if I am ever in the need to stay in San Clemente again I would definitely stay there again.

This Should Not Be a Vacation Rental!! Terrible Experience and Nothing Was Done to Remedy Misrep

  • 1 of 5

Although described in the website as the “perfect place to Relax in the spa or sip a coffee on the front porch,” we could do neither. From the moment we got to the house, we heard nothing but blaring music, screaming, loud banging noises, and fighting noises from the immediate adjacent neighbor in the apartment complex (to our west). We contacted the landlord several times requesting that he contact the landlord of the apartment complex to notify him or her that the tenants were being super noisy and disrespectful. The noise would last the entire day and would go until very late at night, often times getting worse as the night went on. The neighbors were clearly partying (as you couldn’t avoid the smell of pot the entire time). The neighbors would do all of these activities in the courtyard of their apartment complex so it was impossible to avoid the noise and smell. There was simply no way we were going to be able to enjoy the outside of the home or the inside of the home. In fact, we had to close the windows on multiple occasions which resulted in the house being very uncomfortably hot as there is no AC. Even with the windows closed, because they were right outside the house (the apartment complex is very close to the rental house), we could hear the constant noise. This was far from a relaxing vacation. We were forced to leave the house on multiple occasions just to get away from the constant raucous. In fact, my older children decided to go home and not spend the rest of the time because it was so unpleasant. We finally called the police because the noise was so bad and a lot of it consisted of a young child being repeatedly hit. As soon as the police left, it started up again. We went next door to ask if they could please keep it down as it was already 10:30 p.m. and we just wanted to get a good night’s sleep. The family was belligerent and said they weren’t going to stop. At that point, we decided to leave the place before our rental time was up as we feared for our safety. We advised the property owner that we were leaving. He did not respond. It wasn't until we asked for a refund that we received a call from the owner who cursed us out and said we left the house a mess, which was far from the truth. The house was not even that clean when we arrived. We had to clean the bathroom, refrigerator and backyard. The owner should have disclosed that this house is next door to a rowdy apartment complex. Should be 0 stars.

Owner's Response: This renter is a SCAMMER and trying to get something for free by making false claims. They brought an unauthorized pet and left piles of dog feces in the backyard, got tons of sand in the spa, left scooters, chairs, a karaoke machine and other items in the house. They took a key and re-entered unauthorized in to the home after they checked out and their rental had expired. Their car spilled oil all over the driveway and they tried to cover it up with dirt. These people are disgusting and absolute liars and cheats! I have been renting this home for 4 years and have never had a bad review or any complaints about noise.

Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 2 week stay and can't wait to come back next summer! The location is within walking distance of everything as others have said....no need for a car. After a day at the beach it was so nice to come back to this cozy, comfortable and private home. The yard is beautiful with so much foliage. We sat out mornings and evenings and our dogs enjoyed exploring. The house is set up with everything you could ever need and Todd is extremely accommodating if you have any questions. Thank you Todd for a great and relaxing stay!

Comfort @ San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned to Belgium from a three month stay at Todd Clark's vacation rental in San Clemente. The house is great with lots of amenities: two fireplaces - one inside, one out; the front porch and back garden; an outdoor jacuzzi and well supplied kitchen; two comfortable beds and a fully adequate bathroom; TVs in every room and even a bluetooth speaker to pair with our mobile devices. What else do you need? Todd is a very friendly and generous guy. The kitchen was well stocked with cold beers and wine on arrival. Nice for any traveler. He came by a couple of times to bring us various housekeeping supplies, but otherwise no handholding. He's a busy guy and was just not able to stop by to fix the outdoor heater during the last 10 days of our stay. Oh well, by then it was the end of March, so less necessary. (He was however able to arrange a delivery of some firewood during the colder months which we really appreciated) The house is located on a quiet street on the north side of Del Mar in downtown SC with friendly neighbors. BTW: the driveway is short and steep, so if you have mobility issues be advised. All in all we'd recommend the property and happily stay there again. San Clemente itself is a great spot, it's on the southernmost tip of Orange County, just off "the grid".

every thing you could need for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

From the house decor the beautiful tropical landscaping. And all the amenities hot tub fire pit barbecue. We used everything and had a great time walked to the pier every day. Walked to local shops and restraunts. A lot of times you show up to a property and it is no where near as good as the pics on line. This place was everthing and more every member of my family loved it. Thank you !

Best time ever!

  • 4 of 5

This was by far one of the best well-maintained properties that I had the privilege of staying in. The house and its furnishings is very beautiful.

Todd, the owner, was in the neighborhood visiting a friend the night I arrived and was very kind and made me feel very welcomed to the neighborhood. He was very quick to get back to us on any questions or issues we had. The hot tub and barbecue grill are fantastic for entertaining. We had a blast!

I would and plan to come again in the fall if it's available.

Great time!

Colleen
