About Russell and Lisa Parks

We met 30 years ago at a Club Med in Mexico and have loved the beach and travel ever since. Russ has been a hairdresser for 50 years and I have an after school and summer art program here in San Clemente for the past 19 years. We love the Spanish Architecture and history in San Clemente as well as the ease of walks and hiking on the trail by the beach or in the surrounding hills.

Being self employed we invested in real estate as a way to retire! HA! Looks like we are not ready to do that for a while.

Why Russell and Lisa Parks chose San Clemente

We purchased 245 Ave. Palizada as a long term investment and rental property. The location is perfect. One block to downtown and 1 block to the beach makes it a perfect vacation rental spot.

What makes this apartment unique

As I have mentioned again and again..... the location is amazing... the indoor outdoor living is what Cali is all about and the the PALIZADA Paradise vacation rentals celebrates it!!!!

The Palizada Paradise Si' is a beautiful fun Mexican themed unit.. Bright colors, unique decor . We love Mexico and wanted to bring a bit of it to one of our San Clemente vacation rentals!


Guestbook comments from the owner

My family rented both Palizada A and Si apartments. As other reviews mentioned they have everything...beach things, games and fully equiped with ironing boards, extra beach towels, sheets, pillows etc. Literally everything we needed. The location you can't beat. Even the local grocery store was an easy drive away. That she provides parking for each unit is a super bonus because this area is highly sought after since it's so close to the pier and beach. Lots of outdoor living space. The only real complaint we had was that it rained a lot while we were there and it got hot in the house and the road in front of the house is pretty noisy at night if your window is open. But I still would stay here again and highly recommend it. One more thing to note, for the hospitality that Lisa provided and the cost compared to other rentals in the area, choose this one. Lisa is friendly and down to earth, not like other owners I spoke to who didn't seem to want to rent for 3 nights, didn't return calls and were even sometimes rude. But not Lisa!

Amazing condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We went to San Clemente for a short family trip after a death in our family. From the moment we arrived, we felt right at home. Lisa and Russell made a wonderful, personalized gift basket and sign for us and our kids were thrilled. They also put cold drinks in the fridge! This condo is artfully and tastefully decorated. Each area is a masterpiece. We enjoyed the cool ocean breeze as we sat on the patio outside . The location was amazing as well. We were minutes away from the beach trail, downtown San Clemente and Casa Romantica. If you have ANY questions, they are so happy to help. Throughout our stay, Lisa was in contact with us, and checked in to see if we needed anything. She was so caring and kind. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

Beautiful apartment at a great location

  • 5 of 5

My dad stayed in the apartment for one month, and was very happy with his stay. The apartment is walking distance to the main shopping area in San Clemente and the beach. Apartment is also very nicely furnished and on a quiet street.

Loved everything about it

  • 5 of 5

We could not have picked a better place to stay. Very nice without being fussy. Our granddaughters were able to sleep in the extra bedroom and acted like queens in there on their own. It is close to the beach and town, which is what we wanted. Thanks for the memories, and hopefully we will return. Eleanor and Bill
