Experience the ambience and comfort of a fine hotel in this lovely beach home just steps from the classic San Clemente pier. The Spanish-style three story attached home is a beautiful example of San Clemente's rich heritage. A stroll through the neighborhood of stucco homes with red tile roofs is a pleasant reminder that pioneer founder Ole Hanson's dream of a 'Spanish Village by the Sea' lives on today.
A four minute walk to the pier reveals a stunning view of the famous San Clemente white sand beach that invites sunning, sand-castle building, body surfing, and boogie boarding by day. By night, relax around a roaring fire at one of the many beach fire-pits after watching the sun set over the majestic Pacific Ocean as it drops behind Santa Catalina Island. Any hard core surfers in your group? Bring your boards, wet suits, and take on the challenge of the best surf California offers at the Pier, T Street Beach, or the renowned 'Trestles'.
Just a five-minute walk to Del Mar Street and you're amidst shopping options galore from swimwear to antiques, trendy boutiques and jewelry shops. There's an 'aha' moment for every shopper's pleasure. Shopping not on your agenda? Then pamper yourself with a treatment at one of the many spas and salons at your service. Excellent eating ranges from the five-star White Horses Restaurant across from the pier to local favorites such as Italian Cravings, Billy's Deli, The Beach Garden, Avila's Mexican Cantina and the Beach Fire Grill.
Casa on Cazador is an inviting location to hold a family reunion, a group get-together or a gathering of almost any kind.

We'd like to introduce ourselves to you! We're Bob and Maggie Stiles, property owners. Bob built this home in 2004 and we moved in at the beginning of June 2005. We selected this site to be near the ocean, the San Clemente Pier, the beach amenities and the charming town of San Clemente. We are semi retired and enjoy spending time in Palm Desert where we have another VRBO listing, and also the summer months at our home in Admiral's Cove near Coupeville in Washington state.
San Clemente is one of the five best Mediterranean climates in the world with the easy access to the beach, delightful ocean breezes, and charming small town environment with access to major entertainment venues within thirty to sixty minutes. The relaxed 'pier bowl' community where we live allows us to walk to restaurants, shops, stores and banks...a lovely way to live!
Relaxation is easy when sitting on one of the two front decks looking at the ocean and enjoying conversation with friends. Relaxation continues with a move to the private back patio where we enjoy viewing our lovely landscaped yard or playing croquet or bocce ball on the lush grass. It just doesn't get much better than this!
