About the owner: Steve and Lynne are an E Harmony love story. They blended their 2 families together in 2009 and planned to someday move to their beautiful San Clemente home. But life, kids and careers made them choose to stay in their Lake Forest home and instead create a vacation beach house to share with their growing family. With love and attention to detail it was furnished and decorated, filled with whimsy and comfort. Mermaids, whales and an octopus or two can be found throughout our beautiful cottage by the sea!
Why the Owner Chose San Clemente, CA, USA:
We love this area, the small town feel, the laid-back style. There's history and romance, surfing and leisurely walks on the beach. For us, it's everything we wanted in a beach house, and the only place to have it was in San Clemente.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The neighborhood is just the most charming and friendly you could ever want. Hearing the ocean in the evening on a stroll down our street just draws us to the beach. Having coffee on our little balcony off the great room is our favorite way to start the day. Decorative pieces like the wooden mermaid at the top of the stairs and the octopus by the fireplace are what make it unique to us. We love having our family together in the great room, playing games or watching a game.
