San Clemente House Rental Photos and Description

Beach House With Pool & Spa, Close To Beach & Downtown

The Rosa House is the perfect place to experience the southern California beach vacation in style. This is a classically remodeled and decorated, single-story beach house with 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1,400 square feet of living space, a beautiful private pool, and hot tub. The Rosa House is nestled in the heart of San Clemente, the “Village by the Sea”, which is arguably southern California’s quaintest beach town. Peak a boo views of the ocean and surrounding hills are seen from the two-car driveway and gated front courtyard and pool area. The San Clemente Pier and T-Street, known for beautiful wide sand beaches and excellent surf, are less than a half-mile and within easy walking distance. Speaking of surfing, world-famous breaks San Onofre and Trestles are less than 5 miles from the front door, as are numerous other reef and beach breaks. The local surf breaks provide suitable waves for the full range of skill levels, from beginner to advanced.

Worried about finding taxis or a designated driver around dinner time? Don’t!!! The Rosa House is only 100 yards from widely renowned Del Mar Avenue and El Camino Real, and easily within “stumbling distance” of dozens of exceptional restaurants, cafes, cantinas, and taverns. Do the girls like short walks to quaint boutiques, antique stores, art galleries, specialty shops, salons, and day spas? You are in luck, just walk over to Del Mar Ave., which is also home to the weekly farmer’s market (Sunday) and monthly events including art shows, live music, and classic car shows. Even the local Starbuck’s, grocery store, and library are a short walk from the perfectly situated Rosa House.

Entry to the Rosa House is made through a custom wood and iron gate. The front wall with stacked stone pillars provides privacy to the front courtyard, which is blasted with full sun throughout the day, warming the freeform, pebbletec finished pool to a pleasant temperature from early May to late October. This is a great sunbathing area furnished with recliners and chairs in full sun and shade areas. Getting hot? Take a dip! Past the pool, the front porch and door open to the large living room with comfortable couches (and sleeper futon), cozy fireplace, 37” flat screen TV, and plush carpeting. The dining area has an antique oak table and chairs, and leads to the updated, fully equipped kitchen with newer appliances, dishwasher, and large refrigerator. The laundry room is off the kitchen, and features free washer, dryer, and detergent.

The huge master suite features skylights, walk-in closet, spacious private bath with dual shower heads, comfortable queen bed, built-in oak shelving,and TV. French doors open to the rear deck and a luxurious Hot Springs spa that is always hot and ready for a dip. The second bedroom is very private and features a comfortable full bed, dresser, mirrored wardrobe closet, and full private bath.

This place is plush! Special amenities include central heating and air conditioning, gas barbeque grill, cable TV, DVD, stereo system with wall-mounted speakers, and wi-fi internet. The house is family friendly, complete with a pack and play, swimmer diapers, and plenty of toys. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, cooler, boogie boards, and a soft-top surfboard are at your disposal. For child safety, a 4 feet-high fence and self-closing, locking gate has been installed around the pool. Potty-trained pets are also welcome.

The laundry room and pool are shared with our tenant in the studio apartment at the front of the property. The apartment has a separate entrance from the main house and is separated by the laundry room and deadbolt doors.

If you want to venture out of town, Dana Point Harbor and Laguna Beach are just up the coast. Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Lego Land, and Sea World are within an hour or less, and Hollywood and downtown San Diego are just a bit further. If you do not feel like driving, you can ride the train, which stops at the pier and many other places up and down the coast.

Why Mark and Martha Heinaman chose San Clemente

Location, location, location! This place is close to everything, and it is very pleasant, open and light, yet well-screened and private

What makes this house unique

Very few vacation homes can compete with the combination of great location (walking distance to everything), quality of design, and excellent overall condition and amenities for such a reasonable price. Plus, there is the private pool and spa. How can you beat that?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Vacation Home

Guest Chip (Florida) Date of stay 07/01/12 Review Submitted 07/23/12

This Home was just right for our family vacation!

The master bedroon and bathroom was spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with any and all appliances needed. The convinience of a washer and drier, movies to watch, the pool and yakuzee were also a plus!

It is located near restaurants, shopping and the pier... Pieceful but in the middle of everything.

The owners were very friendly and helpful! There was even a welcome note from them and a list of restaurants and helpfull things to know while our stay there!

We highly recomend this for your next vacation!! :)

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I with four children spent one week and loved it. Loved the pool, hot tub, massage chair and privacy. Great restaurants within walking distance. We had troubles getting the BBQ to light; Mark came over the next day with a new regulator which fixed the issue – great service from the owner. The house was very clean and was a very comfortable place to be.

Comfortable home away from home

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in San Clemente at this home and found it to be very comfortable. Everything you need is there. Mark has thought if everything. The kitchen is stocked so if you are short of something ,you can use what is there and just replace it. We enjoyed walking to everything- beaches, restaurants,shopping. Loved having a pool as well. Mark is very responsive to any concerns or questions. A very good place.

We love the Rosa House!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at the Rosa House and loved it! It was our second time staying here, as we have found it to be the best option for our family. We and our 3 children love having the pool and hot tub. We love being so close to the beach! We used the beach toys, boogie board, and beach chairs, all provided by the owner. The Rosa House has all the conveniences of home, including a pack-n-play, high chair, toys, and books for young children. We visited Legoland, only 30 minute drive. We highly recommend this home for your visit to Southern California!

Great location and home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Rosa house for two weeks. It's a beautiful home with a wonderful location. We loved being within a short walking distance of great restaurants. We walked and biked to beautiful San Clemente beach, and San Onofre State Park is just a short drive away. Great surf breaks are everywhere.

The house, and especially the kitchen, is exceptionally equipped for a group of adults or a family with children. The layout of the house gave us privacy. The house is also well-supplied with beach towels and chairs. Because the house is located a few blocks from the beach, even when the beach was foggy, the patio with the pool was usually sunny throughout the day. The owner was extremely helpful and courteous. An awesome vacation and we would definitely stay again!
