About the property

Private House steps to Beach AND Downtown, 4+ Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 7-12)

Custom 3000 square foot luxury private home located in the heart of San Clemente - 'The Spanish Village By-The-Sea.' In San Clemente's most desirable 'pier and downtown Del Mar' area, only one street over from the main street, just steps from the sand, dining & shopping. Ideal for groups and fun family vacations!

Best location in San Clemente! Walking distance to everything - 4 minute walk to the sand, 1 minute more and you're on the pier. Just a block away from all of the excellent restaurants, wine bars and unique boutique shops of Avenida Del Mar. Many surf breaks right here - ride your first wave minutes from walking out the door!

Central location for exploring southern California by car. Located right in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego (approx. 45 minutes either way). Disneyland, Legoland, Sea World, and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are all within a short drive. It's also just a short walk from the house to the Metrolink train station at the pier (4 min).

Beautiful old-growth cherry hardwood floors are found all throughout the house. The inviting open floor plan is relaxing and ideal for groups vacationing together - open up the double doors at the front patio and backyard for a truly wonderful indoor/outdoor flow-through experience from end to end. The large professional kitchen with top of the line appliances will accommodate any accomplished chef and may even inspire a new career path! There's peak ocean views from one of three upstairs balconies. The house has one and one-half baths downstairs and two full baths upstairs with an oversized double shower in the master. The master and two other bedrooms are located upstairs. A 4th bedroom/office is located just off the kitchen downstairs - it can be locked off from the rest of the house while having its own full bath, backyard and kitchen access (considered a mother-in-law suite).

This is the ideal family vacation home! Two INDOOR swings with full range of movement located in a large upstairs playroom with high vaulted ceilings. Dozens of board games, dress-up clothes, play kitchen, toys etc. Dedicated kid's art room. Upright piano. High-speed wireless internet with range extender. Large HD wide-screen TV with cable service and Blu-Ray DVD player with dozens of movies on site.

Outside we have a fun 60-foot zip-line and two-story playhouse for the little ones. Elevated patio/lounge area with pergola and oversized hammock. Exterior hot water shower for rinsing off after the beach. Soft learner surfboards and plenty of boogie boards, sand toys, beach chairs, umbrellas and more are all included.

Beds: Sleeps 7 to 12 comfortably in beds – 1 King, 2 Queens, 3 Twins, 1 Toddler Bed, multiple day beds and fold flat couches. Two additional Queen-sized raised AeroBed air mattresses are supplied - all of the large bedrooms or the large playroom can easily accommodate one (or in some cases both) of the Queen AeroBeds. There's plenty of large couch space throughout the house too.

Backyard: The backyard is 900 square feet and consists of irregular slate stone, large natural gas grill, separate charcoal grill, a 2-story playhouse in one corner, the pictured deck with arbor on the other side, and outdoor shower and zip-line just around the corner (zip-line goes down one side of the house and ends at the arbor). The lighting is great at night with dimmable controls over the arbor and outdoor teak dining table. There's also a wood burning fire pit that can be moved to wherever you need it to go and extra wood tables with bench seating if needed. If the nights get a little chilly there is a movable restaurant-style propane fueled outdoor patio heater on site as well.

Beach trail: San Clemente completed building a great pedestrian beach trail just a few years ago. It runs all along the coast for about 2.2 miles and can be accessed just down the steps from the house. At the north end of the trail is North Beach - here you can rent bikes for use around town and on the trail. At the south end of the trail is Calafia State Beach with world famous surf break Trestles a little further beyond.

Great Beach Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, very convenient to the beach and to downtown, and full of toys for the kids. We had a great stay with our two kids (who are 1.5 and 3.5 years old).

Perfect San Clemente family funhouse

  • 5 of 5

We went to Disneyland for Christmas with the kids and grandkids - Mashburns house in San Clemente was the perfect next step - close to the beach, close to town - I wish we had had more time in San Clemente - we'll definitely be back!

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This trip involved many firsts for a grandma and her two sons families! This house gave us the ability to relax as a family in our down time and enjoy the relaxing, beautiful space it has to offer! With the ocean a walk away the kids got to see, swim and body board in the ocean for the first time! The neighbor hood was very quiet and safe which is something we were worried about. We're already planning our next trip back and we hope to get to stay at this same wonderful home!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family (grandparents, grown kids, and grandkids) from Montana had a ball for a week at this great place. After a long day of travel the soft fresh- smelling bedding was dreamy. You'll love the kitchen stove with a warming oven. It's everything it says it is! A paradise for children who were never bored. We spent everyday at the clean beautiful beach where someone drove the boogie boards and towels etc home and the rest of us walked. We brought our own volleyball net (there is one on the north side of the pier already, but need your own ball, there might be one at the house). Enjoyed walking to Starbucks. Farmer's Market on Sunday on Avenida del Mar was fun too. We enjoyed a great family meal at the Mexican Food restaurant at 401 S El Camino Real (kitty corner to Starbucks).
