This home offers an ocean view deck with patio table for dinning or just hanging out, enjoying the views or taking in the sun. There are also several other outdoor dining areas to enjoy.

About Max Jones

My wife and I are retired and would love to share one of our favorite spots in the whole world with others while we are out of town enjoying our wilderness ranch in Washington State.

Max Jones purchased this house in 1998

Why Max Jones chose San Clemente

This is one of only a few hundred properties that are on the San Clemente Historical List. It still has its historical character but has been completely renovated with all the modern amenities one could ask for and only a block to the pier.

What makes this house unique

Stunning ocean sunsets from the deck and cool ocean breezes await.

Excellent Beach Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed here for a week with my family of 4. This was for a surf vacation and it worked out great. The house is walking distance to the pier/beach and a slightly longer walk to the main retail strip for dinner. We primarily were surfing San-O, but my son walked for a couple afternoon sessions to the pier. While only 2BR/1Ba, the house feels much larger. It had 4 different dining areas (front yard, back yard, kitchen/dining room, and roof top deck). Dinner/sunset and view of the water were fantastic! The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen tools/utensils and had everything we needed. If we return to San Clemente, I would rent this house again.

Great stay at Casa Elena

  • 5 of 5

Great house in an excellent location. The house is clean, well-maintained and our family had plenty of space to spread out both inside and outside. The house is located on a quiet street which is very pleasant. Stayed for 10 days and had everything we needed. Beach chairs/boogie boards and umbrellas were provided and the beach is a short walk from the house. Relaxing on the roof watching the beautiful sunset was a highlight. Beds are very comfortable and kitchen is well equipped. Beach trails fun for daily walks or bike rides. Downtown shopping and restaurants are a short walk or drive away. This was our third summer vacation at Casa Elena. Wonderful place to relax. Excellent customer service from the owner and the entire process was simple and efficient. We are recommending the house to some friends looking for a place to stay later this year.

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Casa Elena is a nice home away from home in San Clemente. We have stayed for a week the last 2 years. The location is great for beach access, walking, dining, train to San Diego, shopping, etc. The property has ample room for entertaining family or friends with a great rooftop view of the sunset. It also has off street parking which is a plus. The owner is great to work with.

Wonderful stay at Casa Elena

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay at Casa Elena. We had such a good time last year we came back again this summer. The house is clean, well kept and very comfortable. The beach chairs and boogie boards were great. The beach is a short walk as is downtown. Lots of excellent restaurants nearby and fun spots for a night out. The location is perfect. The rooftop deck is amazing with a beautiful view. It was our favorite spot to spend time and one of the main reasons why we will come back. The rental process was very efficient and simple.

Comfort and Character in San Clemente!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Casa Elena was one of our most memorable family vacations! The home exemplifies the Spanish character of this wonderful Oceanside village! All the amenities of home and a short walk to the beach. We especially loved the rooftop terrace with expansive ocean views and the outdoor fireplace in the backyard. This property is a gem; exactly how you see it online. Thank you Casa Elena!!
