Orange County House Rental Photos and Description

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).

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a beautiful area. The home was a short walk from the beach, shopping, and access to the freeway. Everything you needed for a comfortable stay was there in the home. We had four children with us (ages 18 months-8 years old) and they didn't even wanna leave the house!! Top of the line kitchen, big tubs in the bathrooms, an awesome walk in shower in master bedroom!! I would suggest bringing a sleeping mask if you like to sleep in, and you'll want to, cause the beds were so comfortable, the curtains/blinds were private but not dark. There was also some spoiled food in the fridge when we arrived, but on a side note there was an array of condiments for use (maybe the cleaning lady forgot to look in the fridge?). Overall, exceeded our expectations!!

Perfect location!

Beautiful house located close to beach and close to shops and restaurants. If you have kids, the playroom is amazing. The fully stocked kitchen was a huge benefit as well.

What a great house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful with everything you need - and things you didn't even know you'd need! Our family stayed for a full week and was very comfortable. The kitchen is AMAZING and is stocked with the best appliances. The house is located just a short walk to the beach and the pier. Upstairs, is a huge, fully equipped playroom complete with two indoor swings, a laundry room, the Master Bedroom with an amazing shower and jet tub. We loved our stay and the Owners were a pleasure to do business with!

Welch Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place to celebrate a destination wedding! It was large enough that our family had a place to stay and we didn't feel crowded at all! The neighborhood is perfect for walking. We felt very safe allowing the kids to walk around too! Being within walking distance of the beach made it even more perfect! And we loved the sound system that we could listen to music indoor and out! And the swings! We loved the swings! Thank you so much for making yiur beautiful home available to us!

Beautiful San Clemente Home

  • 5 of 5

We've rented 3-4 condos/houses for a total of 6-9 weeks every year for the past 10 years, so we've had a lot of experience with this. Of all of our rentals, this one, by far, was the best equipped home we've been in. The kitchen had everything we could have possibly wanted (in multiples) for our 3-generation family to cook together. The toy room was astonishing! Our grandchildren were delighted with the swings, dress-up clothes and all of the wonderful toys. The house is beautifully designed to accommodate a large family group, with plenty of open space. The patio area was also a favorite gathering place with comfortable seating and, again, plenty of toys.

There are a few things we've come to recognize in our rentals over the years:

1) The furnishings and equipment (kitchen, etc.) are often fairly inexpensive. I assume that's due to concern over damage by renters. In this house, everything from the kitchen equipment to the toy room is top quality. What a difference that makes!

2) Rentals are often stocked with a minimal amount of soap, toilet tissue, cleaning products, thus requiring an early trip to the grocery store to replenish them. This house had more than enough of everything to last through our visit. That saved us both time and bother.

3) Rentals are often decorated to look nice, but, clearly, no thought has been given to the renters' comfort. This house, while certainly being most attractive, is set up for renters to walk in and be at home. There was nothing we had to do to make it more comfortable or convenient.

We loved this house! The kitchen was the one of my dreams - if only I could have taken it home with me. And, the playroom was simply amazing. There were hundreds (maybe thousands) of books throughout the house. The house is a short walk to the beach in one direction or to the town the other way. Everything was quite convenient. Really, it was all we could have asked for.

This San Clemente house was a joy to stay in!

Central location for exploring southern California by car. We're right in the middle of Los Angeles and San Diego (approx. 45-50 minute drive either way). Disneyland and Legoland are each about a 25 minute drive. Sea World and the San Diego Wild Animal Park are both 45-50 minutes down the road. 25 minute drive to Laguna Beach (Arts Festivals, etc). Hollywood/Universal Studios are about 70 minutes away.

A block away from the house is San Clemente's own Village Art Fair (held on the first Sunday of every month). Our Farmer's Market is held on every Sunday (also only a block away). Free 'Bands in the Sand' concerts are held at sunset most Thursdays throughout the summer by the pier (5 min walk from the house). Some of the other special events held within a block or two from the house: San Clemente Ocean Festival, Seafest (huge chowder cook-off), Fiesta, many different world-class surfing contests, Classic Woody car show on the pier, and much more! A schedule of events will be provided.
