This is us! We live in the house right behind the rental house! When Steve was a little boy, his parents bought the property and built the original house as a weekend beach cottage. He has fond memories of a long ago San Clemente, and we both love this city a lot. We grew up in Southern California and consider ourselves pretty much like the 'Brady Bunch'. We've been married over 25 years and raised 4 children in San Clemente! Steve was a San Clemente lifeguard for many years during college and even after graduating from UCSB. He served in the US Peace Corps in Brazil for 2 years. Now retired, he was an Oceanside paramedic-fireman for most his career. France is a medical business executive, and yes, speaks French! She graduated from a state university in pre-med, and spends a lot of her time mentoring women and young people in business. We are grandparents, and on many weekends, we spend time with our wonderful families and grandkids. We absolutely love being around loads of friends and family. France's mom is nearing 90, and lives with us too!
We LOVE renting this house and meeting new friends! We've had such a great experience. When Steve was a little guy, Ole Hansen's dream of the 'Spanish Village by the Sea' known as San Clemente, was just getting started. Steve's mom bought 3 lots, and our rental home was the original family beach cottage. We have many photos of the original San Clemente! When Steve's parents passed away, we couldn't bear to sell the house, so we bought it from the family, added a lot of square footage, and remodeled it! We are also minutes away from every type of shopping you could want, from grocery stores and Wal Mart, to high end department stores. Sunday mornings are for our weekly Farmer's Market with fresh produce and flowers on the main street, Del Mar St. This home will leave every guest with new wonderful memories for a lifetime too. We customize the contents of your beach home to suit your vacation needs! No matter WHERE you go visit while on your southern California vacation, one thing for sure; when you get back to your Beach House, you will be very happy to be 'home'.
This San Clemente Beach House is a couple minutes walk to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The climate is perfect, and spending time outside is a way of life. We love spending evenings outdoors, walking to the pier to meet friends for 'Happy Hour' or dinner, and walking the beach trail towards the State Beach Park. San Clemente was made famous when Pres Richard Nixon bought a beautiful estate just south of us, for his Western White House. Many diplomats including Henry Kissinger and Ronald Reagan spent time in San Clemente. Seeing and playing in the Pacific Ocean, hearing the waves, watching the palm trees, and the very romantic sunsets, make San Clemente a uniquely special place which you will fall in love with.
