About the property

Stunning Trestles Home W/ Top Of The Line Kitchen, Walk To Golf+world Class Surf

This one-of-a-kind jewel is nestled in the highly sought after trestles district of san clemente, just a half mile walk away from the beach through the calafia state park. Also just around the corner is the san clemente municipal golf course, trestles community park with tennis courts, and the rip curl store where you can rent surf gear for the ultimate vacation!

Upon walking through the front gate of 113 avenida san dimas, you enter an enclosed courtyard with a sectional outdoor sofa that can be enjoyed day and night. San clemente does have ''the world's best climate." :) there is a 3 pane slider door that opens into the open concept living room and kitchen. On the stone feature wall of the living room is a 47" flat screen with directv that can be rotated and enjoyed from both the courtyard and indoors. The second feature wall of the living room holds a 200 gallon salt water fish tank that is both relaxing and mesmerizing. Throughout the home there are beautiful stained concrete floors and bamboo cabinets. The kitchen has been decked out with top of the line appliances, including: wolf gas range stove & oven, wolf microwave/convection oven, sub-zero fridge & freezer, viking wine fridge and viking beer fridge.

The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a Sleep Number CA King Bed (split with adjustable base), closet space available for use, and a 43" flat screen TV with DirecTV. The master bathroom is like nothing you have ever seen, we will let the pictures speak for themselves. The guest room has a queen bed and dresser available for use. The fish room (as we call it b/c it shares a wall with the fish tank feature wall in the living room) has a full bed and closet available for use.

Should you have any questions regarding the property, please reach out :)

Additional information:

- one story home, but there is one step to enter the courtyard & two steps to enter the house from the courtyard.

- there is a small backyard with no furniture or seating

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

When we first came in there was a bottle of champagne and cute note waiting for us. Really a great touch. They also had a book with restaurants, shopping, and the fastest route to the beach. The place was clean and very welcoming. We came in May and the weather was mostly overcast, but not too hot. No need for air conditioning, as we just left the doors open and were comfortable. The place has a great front patio that gets some good sun during the day and a nice sound system. There was plenty of space for the five people in my party and we had a great time. Would definitely come back.

Beautiful and spacious

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful and has every amenity. The fish tank has to be the best feature! The one downside to it is that it has no AC. (Not disclosed) perhaps at a different time of year when the weather is not as warm and muggy the open windows would suffice or if there were more of a breeze. Also if it were closer to the beach that might not be an issue at all. So That would be my only complaint. Other than that it's a great home and in a great location. I wouldn't say walking distance to the beach but a short pleasant drive. Overall we had a great stay.

Owner's Response: ​Thank you so much for the compliments on our house and especially the fish tank :) I am sorry you were disappointed to find there is no AC. I just reviewed the VRBO posting to confirm that Air Conditioning is not a listed feature. The majority of San Clemente homes do not have Air Conditioning due to the coastal weather. So for those looking for a place to stay in San Clemente and wanting AC, I recommend looking for a property where this feature is explicitly stated. In regards to walking to the beach, the shortest route is ​under a mile walk. Since receiving your review we have included the recommended directions to get to the beach (walking and driving) in the property's Welcome Book so future renters can be sure to take the shortest route and plan ahead whether they prefer to walk or park. Thank you for the input! Feedback helps us to ensure an even better experience for future guests.

Our family enjoyed our stay so much that our little 3 year old was sad to leave this beautiful home. The walks to the beach every day were epic. This is the perfect house to stay when on vacation with a family. The owners welcomed us with some goodies and Champagne which was an amazing personal touch. We will be back on our next stay.
