About Randall W

Why We Chose San Clemente:

Our lovely home is in a beautifully maintained residential area with wonderful neighbors. The peace and quiet are so restful and the private backyard is perfect for gatherings. We look forward to the day we can retire full time here. Everything is so close to the house, including grocery stores, restaurants, Starbucks, antiques, downtown and extraordinary beach areas. We couldn't be happier with our ideal location.

Randall W purchased this house in 2009

Why Randall W chose San Clemente

Furnishings in the home are a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary styles, many of them passed down through the generations. There are many details in the decor which add to the special ambiance. You will love the comfort and attractive living spaces throughout the house, and will feel immediately at home.

What makes this house unique

Our home is located about 5 minutes uphill from the beach and the added elevation gives us more sunshine and less fog than you would encounter at beach level. We love the ocean breezes and quiet surroundings of the neighborhood. Our homeowners association and our neighbors are the best! You will sleep and rest like a baby here!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our house in San Clemente is our dream come true. We hope someday to retire there and as such, we have it ready for that day! It is truly a gem of a home, furnished with our favorite things and reminders of where we have been in our travels. Mostly it is decorated with antiques, many passed down through the years, with great stories attached. The home has a distinctly French and American and Dutch feel to it, as that is our family heritage. We hope you will enjoy the details that make this home unique and special for our guests. Our home is also your home to visit and cherish!

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Year in this wonderful home. Had a wonderful family gathering and could not have wished for a better base for our trip. The house is equipped with everything you could need. Cleanliness is superb and we would definitely stay again. The owner was great both during the booking and after our stay was completed - returned our security deposit within 2 days which is very quick indeed. Do not hesitate to stay here you will not be disappointed.

Quiet and spacious, great surf nearby

  • 5 of 5

Large, comfortable, quiet and refined – this house offers exceptional value for the traveler who wants to enjoy the bustle of the beach during the day, but have some peace at night. Although only a very short drive from the beach, you cross into a different world: an affluent, clean, safe and spacious neighborhood up the hill from one of San Clemente’s shopping centers.

The house itself is beautifully appointed with everything the guest may need, including boogie boards and beach toys. The kitchen is large, the outdoors seating area pleasant, and the furniture upscale. A nice touch is the fact that everything is helpfully labeled.

Excellent internet connection is provided through fast WiFi. To get an even faster connection for your laptop, bring an Ethernet cable and connect directly to the router.

The owner is a pleasure to work with. He is always responsive, and makes the guest feel welcome in his house without being intrusive. Moreover, he really pays attention to details, as is evident by the artwork on the walls, the quality of the furniture, and even the fact that soap and small bottles of shampoo and conditioner are provided in each of the bathrooms.

San Clemente’s pier with its gnarly shortboard wave is only 7 minutes away by car. The big, yet well mannered waves of San Onofre – arguably the best longboard break in the world – are only 12 minutes away; you can park right on the beach, next the restroom and the showers. The very south end of the surfing beach, known as “Dog Patch” is dedicated to SUPs (Stand Up Paddleboards).

On days of a good south swell, or when everywhere else becomes too big and wild, head over to Doheny at Dana Point, about 20 minutes away, for endless fun.

In summary: if you like noisy, crowded, small and overpriced: find a place right on the beach. This house is for people who want to enjoy the beach during the day, but want to escape to a quiet haven at bedtime.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kindness. We have always striven to provide amenities for our guests which are appreciated. In addition to the surf connection there is family beach time and nearby access to water sports equipment and boats at Dana Point Harbor, one of our favorite hangouts. Our location halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles provides access to every conceivable attraction in the Southern California Coastal area, from amusement parks to sporting events, museums, theaters, botanical gardens, art walks, historic missions and so much more. We are pleased to offer our home for guests to enjoy...

Owner's Response: It is our pleasure to have hosted your family in our home. Our guests have enjoyed the private, tropical garden and patio table, as well as the chaise lounges and beautiful Weber barbeque for many years now. It is very kind of you to notice the attention to detail which characterizes our commitment to our guests. Thank you for your wonderful review. We certainly hope to host you again at our California Riviera home.

So good, we did not want to leave

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic two week long stay in this beautiful home. My wife and I were traveling with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. So we really appreciated the room to spread out in comfort and having all the amenities of home readily available. The property was exactly as described, beautifully decorated and with everything you could wish for supplied. Randall, the owner was very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay relaxed and enjoyable.

Part of the timing of this trip was to allow our grandchildren to experience Halloween in the USA. This home is set in a quiet and family friendly neighborhood. We were welcomed into the spirit of things by our neighbors and had a wonderful time, complete with carving pumpkins and trick or treating.

For anybody contemplating exploring Orange County in particular or Southern California in general, a rental vehicle is essential, as is choosing a home base that provides easy access to where you want to go. In terms of location, this property is a winner. Situated with easy access to the I5 Freeway, it is nicely positioned approximately half way between Anaheim and the Disneyland Resort to the North and Carlsbad and Legoland to the South. San Diego with attractions such as Seaworld, the USS Midway Museum, and the world famous San Diego Zoo is only slightly further south from Carlsbad and within easy driving distance. Other popular Southern California attractions are also easily accessible although driving times are a little longer and will vary according to the destination chosen and prevailing traffic.

Again a big thank you to Randall for providing such a beautiful, comfortable, well presented and maintained property. It was a joy staying there and having somewhere peaceful and quiet to unwind with the family after some long theme park days and playing tourist. We would definitely consider staying there again when next in the area. Highly recommended.

After a week and a half of driving it was nice to know we were coming to this wonderful home. We stayed last year and so enjoyed the well appointed home that we thought it would be perfect to end our drving holiday here. We relaxed for a week but still visited Disney, Griffiths Observatory and the beautiful Island of Coronda in San Diego. All an easy drive on the I5.

We will be back. Thanks Randall

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you consider our tropical paradise at the sea your home away from home. It is gratifying to know that you find respite here, in the heart of Southern California Beach country. We always enjoy hearing about our guest's adventures in our neighborhood, whether taking advantage of all the natural wonders, the amusement parks, concert and theater venues or absorbing the beach vibe of our village. We, too, enjoy traveling, but as they say, "there is no place like home." Time to throw some more shrimps on the Bar-B...
