About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

WELCOME to SAN CLEMENTE - Spanish Village by the Sea! Only steps to the historic pier, your home-away-from-home is at an ideal location in this seaside resort.


Light, bright, and airy, the spacious upstairs living area of this ocean view condo is a great place to relax and watch the gorgeous sunset over the pier from the cozy comfort of your home. Enjoy a scenic BBQ or spend a romantic evening on the balcony. The Strands beach of Dana Point is your background, with Catalina Island in the distance. The newly renovated kitchen features real fossil stone countertops and stainless steel appliances. The comfortable sofa with sit-down ocean view can be turned into a queen size bed at night. A full size futon is in a separate corner with some of the best sunset views.


We take pride in making this unit clean, comfortable and convenient. With two en-suite bedrooms on the cozy and quiet first floor, a good night's sleep is right downstairs. There is a California king bed in one of the suites and two twin beds in the other - all with pillow-top mattresses and down bedding. We use all white linens and towels so you can see how clean they are. All rooms have LCD HDTVs with cables.


In case the sounds and waves of the pacific ocean cannot completely take you away from reality, a secured high speed WiFi network is available throughout the unit. An inside laundry room with full size washer/dryer makes it easy to keep those beach attires clean and dry. There are two parking spaces in the gated garage, and a storage unit in the garage to store your surf boards!


You'll love the wonderful Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar at the pier, and many more dining options within short walking distance downtown. On Sundays stroll to Farmer's Market on Del Mar street for flowers, fresh fruit, and vegetables, and maybe even catch the street art fair. You can go fishing off the pier or try your hand (and feet) at some of the best surfing in the country. San Clemente is located half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, close to Disneyland, Knottsberry Farm, Sea World, Wild Animal Park, Legoland, Hollywood, Getty Museum, and Universal Studios. The Pacific Surfliner train arrives daily at the pier for a coastline excursion.


Escape to San Clemente and enjoy the serene beaches, warm people, and interesting culture! Truly a vacation you will never forget and one that will have you returning year after year.

About Owner

We're a family of four - long time residents of beautiful south Orange County. We've traveled near and far, enjoyed different sceneries and cultures, but at the end of the day, the sounds and scenes of the Southern California coast are still the closest to our heart! This is our family vacation home. We'd like to share it with you, and hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.

Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why Owner chose San Clemente

We love the charm of the small seaside village of San Clemente downtown. Our home is a short drive away so we can come and relax in our beach penthouse often. Blessed with wonderful weather and year-round sunshine, this quaint beach town is a perfect getaway paradise at any time. We enjoy the many restaurants, art galleries, and local specialty shops, especially the fishing pier and beach trail from the North Beach to Califia State Beach Park. And don't forget the popular T-Street surfing beach!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the gorgeous views the first time we stepped into this beach condo. The sunset, the moonlight, and the crashing waves are so enchanting. We like to stroll down the street to Fisherman's Restaurant and Bar, and visit the Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings. The kids are thrilled that they can just carry their boards to the pier or T-Street and surf, and we can even see them from the window!

Great location, nice views, good value

  • 5 of 5

Roomy condo with very nice views and only steps away from the pier and beach. A great value right in the heart of San Clemente. Highly recommended.

Superior Location!

  • 4 of 5

A 5 minute walk and you're on the beach or the restaurants on the pier! The condo is exactly as described, although it seemed even nicer in person. The view cannot be adequately captured in photos, and we spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying it! We had a great experience renting Julia and James' other condo last year, and this year was no exception. The only minor inconvenience was that the elevator was not working during our stay, but we just got a little bit more needed exercise and would definitely return!

This property is as advertised. The location is hard to beat and the views are mesmerizing. The condo has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Kitchen is well stocked. Easy walk to the pier and to downtown San Clemente. Plenty to do without getting into a car. The parking is easy and protected. Can't wait to stay again!

Perfect week-long getaway

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous property served as the perfect relaxant during my stay in California. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable and the atmosphere calming. I spent most of my time on the second floor of the condo, an airy, open room designed perfectly to circulate the gentle ocean breeze throughout. The community is quiet, and the condo is close enough to the sea that one can hear the ocean crashing day and night. It was easy to fall into a content routine here—each morning I would wake up just after sunrise and head down to Bear Coast Coffee for a delicious cappuccino, followed by a walk down the pier and breakfast at a nearby creperie. During the day I would drive up the coastline to explore the various beaches nearby, returning at night for an excellent selection of seafood at the pier, or Mexican just a short walk from the condo. I was wont for nothing during my stay, and intend on returning in the future.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious condo that was very clean and nicely furnished. Room for the whole family, quiet neighborhood and surroundings, very convenient location to covered garage. Loved the proximity to the pier and to Del Mar shopping--everything within easy walking distance. Loved being able to open the patio door on the balcony and see and hear the ocean and the beach. Owners were pleasant to work with and very easy to contact. Will definitely stay here again!
