Overview

San Clemente Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Thinking about a summer beach house rental for the Fourth of July week? Have a BBQ in the private, fenced backyard. Then in the evening you can gather your family on the balcony facing the ocean, sit back, relax, and watch the fireworks shooting off from the pier.

Looking for a big beach house for your family reunion or vacation with friends? Combine the rental of this property, “Bret’s Beach House,” VRBO#376500, a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, side-by-side, tri-level duplex, with the unit next door, vacation rental #513949, “Shelly’s Beach House,” also a 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, side-by-side, tri-level duplex. Each property has a private backyard and balcony with ocean view. Enjoy togetherness and privacy.

Our keyless entry makes it easy for a busy family going in different directions. Each family staying at the property has a unique code to use during their stay. If someone wants to go to the beach and others want to shop, there is not a worry about 'who has the key?'

Location, location, it’s all about the location when you are in San Clemente. And, 'Bret's Beach House,' this 3 bedroom/2 ½ bath, San Clemente beach house side-by-side duplex is the perfect location for your next vacation. A short 10 minute walk to the pier, the train station, and the beach, you are only a 5 minute walk from delightful restaurants, quaint shops, the Sunday farmer’s market, craft fairs, and other points of interest on famous Del Mar Street. Once you arrive, you can park your car and forget it. Enjoy walking and breathe in that cool ocean breeze!

If you want to plan adventures to Disneyland, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo, Seaworld, the La Jolla Aquarium or the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, San Clemente is centrally located between all those venues. Either direction you drive, your adventures are freeway close and about 45 minutes away.

Why stay at a cramped condo or apartment when you can stay at this spacious three-level beach home that sleeps 6 - 8 with room to spare? The top level includes a master suite with king bed and private balcony (enjoy a morning cup of coffee while sitting outside on your private balcony.) The front bedroom features a queen bed (with cable TV in room), and the middle bedroom has two twin beds. All the bedrooms have comfy beds and are beautifully decorated with new linens and bedding. If you need extra sleeping space, the sofa in the living room converts to a queen size bed. (A toddler bed and pack-n-play is also available if needed.)

The tiled main floor includes a large living room and ocean-view balcony. Sit back and relax with a cool drink as you watch the sunset every evening. Above the fireplace in the living room is a 47” big screen TV with cable including HBO and Netflix. The cozy gas fireplace lights with the flick of a switch and keeps you toasty warm on cool nights. The dining room flows into a modern kitchen with granite counters and stainless steel appliances. A slider off the kitchen leads to the enclosed backyard.

The bottom floor includes a large laundry room with washer/dryer and 1-car garage (plus parking in driveway.) In the garage we have boogie boards, umbrellas, chairs, a rolling cooler, a big blue wagon for the kids, and two adult size beach cruiser bikes.

This home is perfect for the family that wants to relax and enjoy time together. The private backyard has a BBQ, outdoor dining furniture and umbrella.

San Clemente is an excellent place to cycle, golf, and surf near the pier. San Onofre surf beach and Trestles Beach are only 3 miles away.

About Michelle Howe

Bret and Michelle Howe welcome you to our beautiful beach home in San Clemente. Bret is an avid surfer and one day after surfing nearby he discovered this wonderful home for sale. We bought it and now enjoy it whenever we don’t have guests using it. We have three married children and three small grandchildren who love to share our beach house with us. San Clemente is a wonderful place for families and every weekend we find fun things to do within walking distance of our beach house.

Bret and I are also cyclists and can recommend places to ride on your vacation. We live only 25 minutes away and know Orange County “like the back of our hand.”

Michelle Howe purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Michelle Howe chose San Clemente

Both my husband and I grew up in beach communities and we always wanted to have a home near the beach. We both fell in love with San Clemente when we started looking for our vacation beach home. You feel like you have entered another time and place of years ago when things were slower and people knew their neighbors. In fact, we met more neighbors in our first few weeks of San Clemente ownership, than we ever did in the 14 years at our other house. Everyone is so friendly; it’s like living in a small town where everyone knows your name.

What makes this townhome unique

This house is set up to be a vacation beach home for our family, so we do use it whenever it is not being rented. Because of this, we make sure everything is in tip-top shape and take note of what we can do to make your stay more pleasant.

Probably the best thing about this house is its short walking distance to the beach, pier and Del Mar Street. We like to take long walks on the beach trails and take our grandkids to the wonderful parks close-by. Sunday mornings we walk along Del Mar to enjoy the farmer’s market and other activities happening every weekend. It seems like San Clemente has always got something going on nearby our house.

We also love the fact that anyone can get here by train. The Amtrak Coaster stops right at the pier, just minutes from our house. Our guests can walk to the train station and hitch a ride to San Diego to visit the zoo or take the train north to visit Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland, the Long Beach Aquarium or even Los Angeles.

Fun getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun getaway with our sister who came from Chicago (5 degrees). We had a great time. We walked to the pier for breakfast, sat outside on the great little patio with the cute yard and then we went whale watching in Dana Point. The rental was very clean with a fully equipped kitchen. It was great.

Everything and More

The property was everything

that was listed, and more. The property was clean, close to eating, beach, and nice neighborhood. The beach equipment was great, more than we expected, enough for our seven.

The most complete location outside of my own home

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Bruce beach home in San Clemente and I have to say I was very pleased the location was so well equipte it was just like being at home, even better to be in someone elses home It felt like home away from home, well equipted with 'EVERYTHING' ample towels for a full weeks stay for 6ppl, beach chairs, strollers, wagon for kids, TOYs my grandkids were estatic seeing them so happy with the amount of things they could use to build their sand castles wamed my heart, boogie boards. And for me I love to cook this location was fully stocked this was the best, I mean the best location site I have rented and I have rented all over the United States, given the opportunity I will use this location again, in the center of town walking distance from every thing

Thank you Michelle

The Best Vacation Thus Far

  • 5 of 5

We normally vacation in Florida, this is our first visit to California, and I have to say it has been our best vacation so far. San Clemente is everything you've read about & so much more. Breathtakingly beautiful, family-friendly, and such a relaxed vibe that it was calming & relaxing. The small-town vibe is exactly what's needed for those with hectic lives.

The home is very lovely. It's very well maintained. Everything you could need in the kitchen is there. There is a private patio in back w/a BBQ grill. The living room is comfortable & inviting. It was nice to open up the patio doors in the evenings to let in the cool breeze. The bedrooms were very comfortable. All linens, bath towels and beach towels are available. In the garage you will find everything that you could need for the beach...umbrellas, cooler, boogie boards, chairs and even beach toys. You can even cruise around the community on the two bikes that are also available for your use.

You can walk or ride to most everything. My daughter & I would walk to Starbucks in the mornings and then afterwards to the beach to sit and watch the surfers. There are some great local restaurants and shops that are a wonder to discover.

The home is located perfectly in the middle of all the places we visited in Southern California.

Again, the best vacation we've had so far. I truly hated to leave but I am so looking forward to the day we return.
