About William Medina

We have been in the vacation rental business in San Clemente since 2000 and have met many wonderful people as a result. We really enjoy sharing our home and beautiful San Clemente with people on vacation or escaping from uncomfortable weather back home. We strive to keep our rentals clean and comfortable and take every opportunity to make upgrades. We are proud to provide the quality of accommodations that bring many of our guests returning to stay with us year after year.

William Medina purchased this apartment in 1993

Why William Medina chose San Clemente

Location! San Clemente is a small beach community that is perfect for vacationing. We are walking distance from downtown shopping and restaurants and the main beach and pier. We are also halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego and are able to take advantage of everything these two great cities have to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great value and affordable option for u! It was a longer walk to the beach than I thought it would be (but good exercise), mainly because it was uphill on the way back. But they provided wagons to pull the small kids which worked perfectly. The house was in good condition, we had one problem with a light fixture but Bill came right over to take care of it within half a day. Very responsive. I would stay again and recommend it to anyone else considering!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a place to stay for a month during the time we sold our house and purchased the new one (out of state).There were 5 of us and we weren't sure this would be large enough but it definitely was. The three kids all fit into the guest room which had two queens beds and plenty of closet space. There was even a cot that was used downstairs when one of them snored too much! :) The full bathroom was large so there was plenty of space to get ready each morning. We had a problem with the internet periodically going out when we first arrived but Bill was easy to work with and took care of it right away and also let us know what to do if it happened again. There was even a small backyard for our two chihuahua's to play in. From the bedrooms you got a glimpse of the ocean - it's a quick 5 minute walk to the Pier and many wonderful restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend Bill's Beach Vacation Rental to anyone wanting a wonderful, hassle-free stay. I just loved the location! Thanks Bill!

Unit C Was the perfect size for our family of 6

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and accommodating. Short walk to the beach. With 4 teenagers, another shower would have been helpful, but nonetheless still manageable. The owner was available and very attentive. We had a great week in San Clemente.

Great location

  • 2 of 5

Cancelled reso's at resort hotel for this VRBO, my bad. The location is great, the property itself was lacking. No air conditioning just 3 fans one of which did not work and lots of noisy vacationers all around in the adjacent properties. Furnishings were very low budget and the BBQ grill was so dirty and destroyed that you would not even consider putting food on it. Next time we will be at the resort hotel.

Owner's Response: Sorry you were not satisfied with our vacation rental and that the furnishings were not up to luxury resort standards, but then again you didn't pay resort hotel rates. You will find that very few vacation rentals this close to the beach in San Clemente are equipped with air conditioning because we normally enjoy a cool sea breeze. If you had informed me that one of the fans was not working, I would have brought over a new one. and cleaned the BBQ. Both issues have been addressed.

San Clemente Main Beach and Pier
Car: not necessary

San Clemente is located midway between Los Angeles and San Diego and is just an hour drive to Disneyland, Universal Studios, Hollywood, Knott's Berry Farm, the San Diego Zoo, and Sea World. Also, Mexico is just one and a half hours to the south!

Also very nearby is Mission San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Beach, and Dana Point Harbor where you can picnic, enjoy deep sea fishing, rent jet skis, and catch a boat to Catalina Island. There are also several Golf courses nearby to choose from.

In addition to the beach, nearby shops include everything you need plus antiques, swimwear, surf shops, FedEx, post office, and arts and crafts. Also the public library is only one half block away. Just up the street you will find arts and crafts shows on the first Sunday of the month and a Farmer's Market every Sunday morning.

There are several festivals throughout the Summer including an amazing fireworks display on the pier for 4th of July.
