About Brent and Dru Hall

This house was built in 1954 as a 2 bedroom, 1 bath summer residence. In the 1970’s, our uncle purchased it for his parents, our grandparents, who had often vacationed at the beach, and loved the sea breezes and quiet lifestyle of San Clemente.

After they moved in our uncle and his brother, our Papa, got busy with some remodeling. They added the master bath, dining room (now the game room), and loft. And a covered patio was enclosed creating a laundry area and nook.

Before our grandparents passed, our Papa moved in to help care for them and the house. After their passing, our father lived here, welcoming family and friends, creating delicious meals, and sharing his love for great music.

When our Papa passed he left this house for us, his children. He wanted us to keep it in the family and continue the tradition of gathering, enjoying good food, music and each other.

We’ve upgraded some things, but kept the original charm of this beach home. The kitchen was original, and needed major updating, so that’s where we started. What we have now is all new, including the kitchen door for easy access to the herb garden and fruit trees. Dining space was another issue. Whenever we visited as children, the nook was the place where we gathered for meals. Everyone would just squeeze in on the window benches to make room for one more, so it made sense to make that our dedicated dining area, and eliminate the formal dining room. We toyed with ideas for the now empty dining room space and decided we needed something for entertainment when the beach wasn’t beckoning and the pool table kind of fell into our lap. The fun part was choosing cabinets, paint, flooring,

… And putting it all together!

We hope you’ll sign the guest register and let us know what you think, and return to see our progress as new projects unfold.

Just stayed here for 3 weeks and it was incredible. The owners have thought this one out very well and the house had everything except my clothes and toothbrush which I brought with me. It even had fresh tomatoes and fruit (orange, figs, kumquat, pomegranate, herbs) to enjoy daily growing all around the property. The front patio has a peaceful view of the ocean- perfect for morning coffee and meals, the back patio was great for privacy or escaping the sun in the front patio. The house was quite cozy and very clean throughout and the management company was quick to respond to being out of propane for the grill.

The only knocks I can give the house is there are a lot of stairs from the street to get in the house, the driveway is very short and inclined so our cars were sticking in to the street but it was never an issue. Street parking was never an issue on this quiet street which was great, and the gas range seemed (but wasn't) dangerous as the burners were designed very oddly by Miele to be sticking up very high for just the pot to stand on- maybe some grates were missing or maybe that is the design- not sure, never saw that model before. None of these knocks would prevent me from renting this home again- it was a peaceful and relaxing long vacation getaway and we had no issues with the house which has been rare for all the vrbo's we have stayed in lately.

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week with our nieces, and it was great. The place is very clean and comfortable, and the outside space with the garden is great. Because of when we came, it got pretty toasty in the afternoon, but opening all the window and doors provided a breeze that made it manageable. The only real knock on the place (and this certainly is no fault of the owners) was that the beach access was closed for construction, so you had to walk an couple hundred yards to the other stairs. I know, huge tragedy. Awesome town, beautiful house, best vacation ever.

Lovely Home

  • 4 of 5

This house had lots of space for our family of 4, including a great kitchen. The loft is especially cozy, and was a great place to relax after a long day. Note that it's also the only place you can safely play with an infant on the floor.

We felt very welcomed here. We also had an opportunity to meet one of the owners, who was very nice. I would recommend this rental to others.

Perfect location to celebrate Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

This rental house was a perfect location for our family to celebrate the Christmas holiday, the owners even provided decorations and a beautiful tree. The house far exceeded our expectations. It was clean and well maintained. The layout was great, providing plenty of room for everyone. The balcony was wonderful for morning coffee, the living room and large patio offered great gathering areas, the loft was perfect for playing video games and watching movies, and the pool table was definitely an added bonus. The kitchen was well equipped, allowing us to prepare wonderful meals and there are even fresh herbs growing right outside the kitchen door. The yard is also well-kept and my kids loved the pomegranate and citrus trees. The access to the beach was convenient, via stairs, and the Beach Trail was great for walks or running. The neighborhood was very quiet, with very little traffic, but still close to grocery stores, shopping and restaurants. I would love to rent this house again!

Beautiful rental in San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

This house is one to not pass up!

It is well-maintained and had plenty of space for our group of 8. It offers so many things to do! Whether it’s playing pool, watching movies in the loft, reading a book, or relaxing out on the balcony, patio, or comfortable living room, this house has it all. The kitchen is fully functional if cooking is your interest. If you are looking for something else, a binder FULL of ideas of places to go and things to do is available when you walk in the door. The beach is just minutes away where you will also find a walking/running trail. There are plenty of places to visit that are within reasonable travel time. Whether you want to travel up to Long Beach or down to San Diego, they are each close to an hour drive. This house is in a perfect location to hit many of the favorite West Coast cities and not feel like all you were doing was driving the entire day. The neighborhood is very peaceful and has low traffic.

Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a great time in this home! Everything was clean,new and beautiful. It was an easy walk to the beach and close to grocery stores, restaurants and shops. My teenagers loved the nearby thrift shops and my 7 year old loved playing on the pool table day and night!! We also were pleased that each room had a TV in it:)
