ADORABLE ,FULLY REMODELED, HISTORIC 1928 beach/urban North Beach Artist's Upstairs Loft shows pride of ownership and is very clean and well maintained. It is one of the very first buildings built in San Clemente!!!! We have lovingly restored her and she is a gem!

We have cocktails there in the evenings when we are lucky enough to visit our little piece of paradise!

Only thing shared is the garage!
_We purchased our building in 2006 and she was in sad disrepair We recognized her potential to bring her back to her Spanish 1920's Ole Hanson style and charm.... We took it a step further and updated her with modern amenities, new windows, heating, air units, plumbing, wiring, appliances, refinished original hardwood floors, new bath, new decks, kitchen...... On and on. She still retains her uniqueness! Old doorknobs, 'moon' ceiling in living room, funny out - of- commission outlets that our plumbers scratch their heads..... She was one of the very first homes in North Beach and had a full open ocean view at the time. She was the only home on El Camino Real at the time.As time went on she lost her view as development grew, the alley was put in which extends the length of the beachside of San Clemente. It is now interspersed with commercial, retail, eateries, homes, high end condos, little apartments, coffee cafe, flower shop, vet, tire store, car wash, Ichibieri's sushi, Rider's Club amazing burgers, beach trail, Ellie's Cafe, bike rentals, surfboard shops we love It is quirky, fun, and your typical old style beach location !!! Not slick and snooty, no pretenses here.... The common ground of it's residents is our love of the ocean, and the outdoor lifestyle year round!!!!

About Jeff M lewis
My name is jeff M lewis and I am a professional photographer and artist. I have studios in three different states and vacation rentals at those locations. In San Clemente, CA my studio is in the same 1929 building our Vacation Rental. My works are displayed and sold at several Galleries in California, Idaho and Colorado. Disney Resorts commissioned me to produce several large works for their Paradise Pier Resort next to the original Disneyland Hotel in Anaheim, CA. The new Sheraton Resort in Carlsbad, CA commissioned a work for their beautiful new ocean view lobby next door to LegoLand USA. San Clemente is an artist's dream. It is a great little beach town!! My wife, Debbie, is an interior designer and owns her business, Off the Beaten Path Interior Design. She specailizes in high end interior looks $$$$$$$ for any size budget. She has created her business on the premise of creating high end designs using expensive pieces purchased very inexpensively. She has built a reputation for saving her client's $$$$$ while giving them the quality and look they wanted. We are inspired by the beach and the life style of San Clemente. It is unique and special.............. There is no other Southern Ca. beach town like it.... friendly, laid back, and full of charm of the 1920's Spanish Revival Style!!!
Jeff M lewis purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Jeff M lewis chose San Clemente
Just a fabulous little hamlet by the ocean. Not pretentious and very laid back. This is not your typical 'OC'. A short stroll to the famous Ole Hansen pool/community center. Another longer stroll from North beach around the corner on the new Beach Walk Trail to the Pier and then up Del Mar to downtown. Many new wonderful restaurants and shops. Equal distance to downtown LA and downtown San Diego. Just does not get any better if you want to chill at the beach.
What makes this Apartment unique
Sun, surf, sunsets, fine dining, a zillion places to go and things to see from LA to San Diego. It will take many, many vacations here to experience just a fraction of what is available along the different Pacific Ocean and slightly inland communities of Southern California. San Clemente is right in the middle of it all without all the fanfare of Newport Beach, Marina Del Ray or Malibu.

A great place to spend the winter!
I actually stayed at this property from Nov 11, 2015 to November 28, 2015. It's a great apartment that comes with everything you need to have a relaxing time. I also love that my dog was also welcomed. There are two patio areas. The North patio is dog friendly. The Southern patio is not. But that was fine by me! I loved sitting in the sun on the Southern one. The apartment is beautifully decorated. And the bed is so comfortable! Between staying downstairs and spending the rest of my stay in San Clemente upstairs here too, I was there long enough to really become a resident. I love walking and I did a lot of that here. Because the location of the apartment is so perfect, I frequently walked everywhere including to the local restaurants, the library, the pier, and to Beach Town Books. Both apartments come with a notebook that includes useful information on local restaurants and other information. This property is definitely worth staying at for vacation. And your dog will love being able to come along too.
Thank you kindly. We loved having you as our guest👍👍👍
Warm and Comfortable San Clemente Beach Loft
Sadly, we had to cut our stay short for personal reasons, but this loft is a short walk to the beach in San Clemente. The inside looks just as warm and welcoming as the pictures with a big, comfortable living space and two outdoor decks, as well as garage parking. I just wish we could have stayed longer!
Best little secret next to the beach
Super clean, cute and fully stocked like my own home. 5 minute walk to restaurants, beach and community pool.
Great home, awesome location
We throughly enjoyed our time at San Clemente while staying at Jeff and Deb's loft apartment. Very comfortable, clean and safe. The home was perfect for us and we couldn't have asked for better folks to rent from. Just a short couple minute walk to the beach and even took in church at the beach Sunday morning on our second day. Great time and we look forward to returning try soon!
Comfortable and a great size
My wife and I stayed at Jeff and Deb's place for several days and it was centrally located between San Diego and Long Beach where we were spending several days. Both decks are great and we would hang out in the mornings to drink coffee before walking down to Ellie's on the beach for breakfast before spending the day on the beach. The kitchen is outfitted better than most of the VRBO units we have stayed in so we could have cooked meals if we were not out enjoying all of the local restaurants. There was plenty of room if we had more than just the two of us but it was cozy for us also.
apartment not what we expected, we left after 2 nights
We were disappointed about: the busy road and the extra bedding.
We were not able to sit on the front desk, which was the most convenient one, material wise. This side is on a busy road. Therewith we couldn't open windows because of the noise.
The bedding supposed to be for 2 adults, 2 children (we told the owner the age of our children, and that we are a skinny/sporty family). The bed in the bedroom is perfect, we slept with 2 adults and 1 child. The second bed is a joke. The mattress is very thin and worn (springs come nearly through). There was a thin foam layer on top. This was very old, this is unhealthy! Therewith, for sure it doesn't sleep 2 (children).
The locks are very old and difficult and the garage opener didn't work.
San Clemente was also some disappointing. We liked the atmosphere in beach towns just north of San Diego better, this is personal of course.
The apartment is not worth the price! Especially coming from europe we had to pay a lot extra on cc handling and so on.
Because we didn't feel comfortable, not holiday feeling, we stayed only 2 nights and paid for 4.
Unfortunately the owner didn't want to give a (small) discount :(.
Ofcourse they don't have to, it was our choice to leave. still it would have been nice gesture. They didn't feel sorry for us we had the feeling, the reaction was quite unfriendly.
Guest was difficult, language barrier. She didn't understand the ad and booked 4 adults into our one bedroom lovely loft apartment. Our ad clearly states 2 adults, 2 small children or 3 adults. The guest made a mistake and we told her that a 2 bedroom would have been the best choice. They didn't appreciate the noise but it was our busiest holiday of the year with family celebration, 4th of July fireworks and bonfires. The guests sent numerous texts requesting monies returned to which we declined. Our guest reviews speak honestly of our property. We take immense pride of our home and are humbled by our terrific reviews. Our sofa bed is comfortable. We have slept on it many times. Our bedding is down and high quality. Our locks are in working order, not old. Our garage door opener works fine. We have a 100% accuracy rating of our property description by VRBO. Our guests made a poor choice for their family due to language barrier. We have no control over that. We do our best to offer our best in comfort, cleanliness, style. We cannot please everyone but after 8 years we continue to do our very best.....
New San Clemente Beach-walk begins at North Beach, then South to and beyond San Clemente Pier and Pier Bowl Shopping and restaurants.
