About Lynne and Steve Sargent, Seabreeze Vacation Rentals

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!

Lynne and Steve Sargent, Seabreeze Vacation Rentals purchased this house in 2007

Why Lynne and Steve Sargent, Seabreeze Vacation Rentals chose San Clemente

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Lovely home in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week before and after our son's wedding at the San Clemente Historic Cottage. It was so convenient for the venue, close to shopping and dining, and a short walk to the beach. All the windows welcome the breezes in to the house, the outside spaces are wonderful for relaxing and gathering as a family, and the open floor plan made it perfect for our extended family in town for the wedding. Lots of nice extras available for guests too! I'd highly recommend the Mermaid Cottage.

Great family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that my family and I have stayed at the Mermaid Cottage. The house has everything that we needed for the perfect family vacation. The grandchildren enjoyed the tree house, bocce ball, ping pong and making s'mores in the outdoor fire pit. The house has everything you need for the perfect beach day including beach towels, chairs, boogie boards and beach toys. The adults enjoyed making dinner each night in the well-equipped kitchen. We loved walking to nearby Leslie park to watch the sun go down every night. The outdoor shower and barbecue grill were also very useful. Lynne was very prompt in responding to my questions. Already looking forward to our next vacation at the Mermaid Cottage.

Amazing family getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was immaculate and beautiful. We particularly enjoyed the backyard which is great for kids and sunset dinners. Beach access is steep, but our kids of 3 and 2 navigated it with some help in less than 10 minutes. The neighborhood is quiet and well kept, and numerous amenities are within a short drive. We were greeted personally upon arrival and given a short tour and orientation. The kitchen is gorgeous with partial views of the ocean. Beds were comfortable and rooms were well appointed. Highly recommended!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding , 7 adults and 2 children. This home was perfect. The kids loved the backyard and tree house, and toys, when we were not at the beach. The adults enjoyed relaxing in the living room and kitchen area on the comfy couches and chairs , after a long day. Everything you need is there. We hope to make it back, definately a great destination vacation☺

Incredible stay

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this house justice, so much better in person!! Beautifully and comfortably decorated with every amenity possible. KiItchen was a cook's dream with 6 burner Viking stove and lots of pots, dishes and utensils. Super comfy beds, games for kids and a gorgeous backyard with lawn games and treehouse for kids and a fire pit for adults. The garage was packed with all the necessary beach gear. Owners were wonderful to work with, very responsive to questions and requests. We have been coming to San Clemente for 15 years and this is by far the best place we have ever rented! We cannot wait to return to this fabulous home. Do not hesitate to book this place, you will be so happy!!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for families - the living room and kitchen are spacious and beautifully appointed, the bedrooms are comfortable and secluded, and the backyard has space to BBQ, dine, chat around a fire, and hang out on a large grass lawn. There's even a treehouse that our kids absolutely loved. Plus it's a block from beach access! Definitely plan to come back.
