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 Orange County

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!

Ole'!!!

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!

Great house, great location, terrific hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our needs, it's well equipped and in the perfect location for restaurants and beaches. Disney was 45 mins up the road so great place to be for a kids holiday.

Our 2 children loved it as the thoughtful owners had left toys out for them, plus it has everything you need for the beach from boogie boards to towels.

The owners, Russ and Lisa, were very helpful and attentive without being obtrusive - and the welcome package waiting for us when we arrived was fantastic.

Absolutely no complaints or improvements from us. I would love to come back here again

Great location, cozy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two teens) loved staying here. As long time vacationers in San Clemente, this place was in the perfect location for us -- two blocks from shopping and restaurants on Avenida Del Mar, and a short walk down to the pier bowl and Linda Lane beaches. The unit is on the third floor of a 4-unit apartment building, with a small terrace with table and chairs for alfresco dining or sitting in the sea breeze in the afternoon. There's even a small view of the ocean between buildings. The owners, Lisa & Russell, are very friendly and accommodating, doing everything they can to make us feel comfortable. Everything was clean and well-kept, with comfortable beds and furniture, and the unit was nicely decorated. My one complaint would be noisy pipes -- if someone else was taking a shower in an apartment below, you could hear the water flowing -- but I don't know what you can do about that, and it didn't really affect my rating here, but I thought I'd mention it. We highly recommend staying here -- I'm sure we'll be back.
