Property description


Looking for a big beach house for your family reunion or vacation with friends? Combine the rental of this property, “Shelly’s Beach House,” VRBO#513949, a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, tri-level, side-by-side duplex, with the unit next door, vacation rental #376500, “Bret’s Beach House,” also a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, tri-level duplex. Each property has a private backyard and balcony with ocean view. Enjoy togetherness and privacy.

Shelly’s Beach House is situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood walking distance (1/2 mile) to the pier, train station, and beach. You are only a 5-minute walk from delightful restaurants, quaint shops, farmer markets, craft fairs, and other points of interest on famous Del Mar Avenue. In fact, you are so close to everything, you don’t even need a car!

Your family will build memories of a wonderful vacation when you stay at this 3 bedroom/2 ½ bath, San Clemente beach house. Parents will love the private balconies off the master bedroom and living room. The kids will love the back yard.

This spacious three-level beach home sleeps 6 - 8 with room to spare. The top level includes a master suite with private bath, pillow-top king bed, ceiling fan, and private balcony that overlooks the backyard and is surrounded by mature trees. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee, looking out to the ocean, while sitting outside on your private balcony.

Our keyless entry makes it easy for a busy family going in different directions. Each family staying at the property has a unique code to use during their stay. If someone wants to go to the beach and others want to shop, there is not a worry about 'who has the key?'

The front bedroom features a Tommy Bahama style queen bedroom set and wall air conditioning unit. Look out your window and you have a view of the ocean.

The middle bedroom has two twin beds and ceiling fan. The view out of the window is a beautiful lush tree. You’ll feel like you are in the tropics. (We also provide a bed railing if you have a young child.)

All the bedrooms are beautifully decorated with new linens and bedding. If you need extra sleeping space, the sofa in the living room converts to a full size bed. (A toddler bed and pack-n-play is also available if needed.)

The tiled main floor includes a large living room with comfortable seating, gas fireplace, and ocean-view balcony. Sit on the balcony and watch the sunset every night. During the day, enjoy the cool ocean breeze as you relax with a cool drink. In the winter you can stay cozy by the fireplace.

Above the fireplace in the living room is a 50” big screen TV with cable including HBO. Sign in on our Netflix account and watch the movies of your choice. We also provide many board games and cards for the family that wants to disconnect from technology. (However, we do have wireless Internet for those who need to stay connected.)

The dining room flows into a modern kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The bench-styling dining set easily seats 8 people. The kitchen is fully stocked with glasses, plates, utensils and all the pots and pans you need to cook a family meal.

A slider off the kitchen leads to the private backyard. Enjoy lunch in the sun, BBQ your dinner, or just relax with a book.

The bottom floor of this spacious beach house includes a large laundry room with washer/dryer and 1-car garage (plus parking in driveway.)

In the garage we have boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, a rolling cooler, an umbrella stroller, and two adult size beach cruiser bikes. We also provide beach towels.

If you want to plan adventures to Disneyland, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, the La Jolla Aquarium or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Clemente is centrally located between all those venues. Either direction you drive, your adventures are freeway close and about 45 minutes away.

San Clemente is an excellent place to cycle, golf, and surf near the pier. San Onofre surf beach and Trestles Beach are only 3 miles away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hubby and I have been married 33 years, have three children and four grand children, with another grand baby on the way. My husband is an avid cyclist and surfer. Other than my grand kids, my time is spent quilting and taking care of all our wonderful vacation rental guests from all over the world.

Why the Owner Chose San Clemente, CA, USA:
Both my husband and I grew up in beach communities and we always wanted to have a home near the beach. We both fell in love with San Clemente when we started looking for our vacation beach home. You feel like you have entered another time and place of years ago when things were slower and people knew their neighbors. In fact, we met more neighbors in our first few weeks of San Clemente ownership, than we ever did in the 14 years at our other house. Everyone is so friendly; it’s like living in a small town where everyone knows your name.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This house is set up to be a vacation beach home for our family, so we do use it whenever it is not being rented. Because of this, we make sure everything is in tip-top shape and take note of what we can do to make your stay more pleasant. Probably the best thing about this house is its short walking distance to the beach, pier and Del Mar Avenue. We like to take long walks on the beach trails and take our grandkids to the wonderful parks close-by. Sunday mornings we walk along Del Mar to enjoy the farmer’s market and other activities happening every weekend. It seems like San Clemente has always got something going on nearby our house. We also love the fact that anyone can get here by train. The Amtrak Coaster stops right at the pier, just minutes from our house. Our guests can walk to the train station and hitch a ride to San Diego to visit the zoo or take the train north to visit Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, the Long Beach Aquarium or even Los Angeles.
