About the property

Beautiful Beach Home With A Magnificent Ocean View

San Clemente, the 'Spanish Villiage by the Sea,' is conveniently located between Los Angeles and San Diego, and offers easy access to nearly all southern California attractions.

Convenietly located in a fantastic area, the home is within walking distance to world renowned surf beaches, the San Clemente Pier, as well as the quaint downtown area; Once here, you will rarely require a car. Nestled in the sought after South West San Clemente area, you will find yourself living as part of the surf community along with the luxuries of a modern, recently renovated home.

As you arrive at the home, you will be welcomed by a charming courtyard ideal for outdoor dining (with gas bbq) and happy hour. This is not your average beach cottage rental, but a gorgeous 2200 square foot home. Whether you're enjoying a meal or drink on the inviting patio or upstairs deck, this plantation style home utilizes it's outdoor space to truly captivate the beauty of San Clemente and it's magnificent sunsets.

Your perfect vacation home if you enjoy and active lifestyle, time with family and friends, or simply just relaxing. However, because it is in a quiet neighborhood, zoned for single families ONLY, parties of any size are not permitted.

Thank you, I look forward to hearing from you.

At peace away from home

  • 5 of 5

Lucinda and Bud,

Even though we never spoke verbally, were VERY accommodating and friendly hosts! The house is beautiful and offers so much peace and serenity away from home. It was perfectly stocked, perfectly decorated and stuffed with things for everyone to enjoy everything there was to do there!

I look forward to staying again!

Laurie

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic house, which the online description and pictures don't do justice to. We were 2 families with 4 teenage children, holidaying together and the house had absolutely everything we could have asked for, including beach gear. On top of that it was beautiful and more than spacious enough for 8 people. It really was a find.

NB- we read a review shortly before our arrival about difficult neighbours. We didn't experience this at all and had pleasant chats with the neighbours to both sides

Gorgeous Home - Nasty Neighbors - Lots of Rules

  • 2 of 5

This home is beautiful and well kept. Our experience in this home was stressful and negative.

The owner contacted us two days prior to our arrival by email AND phone to review the "rules of the house," and to warn us of the neighbors who would be watching our every move. She offered to refund our entire amount paid and cancel the reservation if we wished.

Our rental was scheduled for the 4th of July week for our family to gather and spend time together (some were flying in to be with us). The suggestion to cancel was ridiculous. At that late date, it would have been impossible to have arranged something else at the beach for the 4th of July.

We were greeted with multiple pages of rules, regulations and chores to complete while staying in the home.

The owner is correct, there are a few neighbors who hate that this home is a short time rental and they made that clear to us. They looked into the house windows, wrote down our license plate #, became angry about extra cars on the street (which weren't ours), disliked our sitting at the front table, etc. We became incredibly uncomfortable.

We are professional, clean, quiet, respectful people who simply wanted to enjoy being together with our adult children and grandchildren over the 4th. This was the wrong house for us.

Owner's Response: In deed I did call the guest to inform them, a 4th of July celebration was going to take place on my street and that it would be blocked off prohibiting thru traffic. It would have been ridiculous of me to have "asked the guest to cancel and issue a refund?" The ONE-page welcome letter includes minimal instructions, standard for vacation rentals. Unfortunately this family did not comply with the maximum number of guests allowed.

Perfect vacaton home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family while visiting the LA area for our sons graduation from medical school. Perfect house for the 6 of us plus our 1 1/2 year old grand son. Master bedroom and large porch on second floor are exceptionally comfortable. The house is new, beautiful, well appointed and easy walk to restaurants and shops. Kitchen is great for cooking and the outside shower was popular as well. We rented a house by the golf course here last August but this house was better! We look forward to returning.
