The house is a single story 3 bdrm and 2 bath. It was luxuriously remodeled with new kitchen, new baths, travertine floors throughout and carpeted bedrooms. It is located 1 mile from the ocean up a slight hill and sits on the corner lot facing the ocean. This placement allows for a world class view. The views are wide open, but very private at the same time. Enjoy the sunset which has a full view of San Clemente Island and Catalina from almost every room in the house or in the backyard hottub, look over your right shoulder and take in a view of the local mountains in and around San Clemente.

Great location with stunning views!
The house had everything you need for a great beach vacation. Gary was incredibly helpful and had great suggestions for places to go. The views were beautiful and the patio even had a heater for chilly California evenings. We would definitely go there again!
Really nice view from the garden! All the comforts of home. Owners are super!
Everything you would have at home. Great location, great views. Bed broke and was replaced right away. The owners made every effort to make our stay one of our best! Thank you Gary and Trisha! We will be back here to stay here again!
First and foremost: Your home is very cute and fit our family perfectly.
Now if only there were one maybe two small issues I wouldn’t have written but when the list grows I thought it was my obligation to bring them to your attention; so here we go!
Switch/kitchen light (cleaned) and Fridge Water Dispenser was/is extremely dirty.
There could be end tables next to the shorter couch (extremely hard to keep bending and turning around to use the table behind the couch)
Not enough cupboard/medicine cabinet space in bathrooms
No alarm clocks in any bedroom
No hand soap anywhere
No wine glasses only 3 plastic ones (6 adults for dinner, had to have my mother bring glasses – quite awkward)
No paper towels, not enough napkins or toilet paper for 5 people and visiting guests for a week. We eat at home almost all meals.
Duct tape keeping master bed mattress cover together and hair all over the cover doesn’t feel like its ever been washed – we look at all beds no matter where we go looking for bedbugs
Huge holes in front bedroom mattress cover
The floor boards in the bathrooms also didn’t look cleaned as there was thick dirt all among them
Didn’t realize when Gary asked about taking the sheets in laundry room that there were soo many sheets and towels, my bad – but it was a horrible judgement call on my part. We found a live coach roach in our dried laundry; yuck!
In addition, I didn’t want to call and ask you to come over because it felt you came over 1-2 times a day for the first 2-3 days we were there. It definitely felt awkward that on Saturday early afternoon just 5 minutes after I had left that Gary was there doing something in the garage because my kids were still there and saw you. It left me thinking how many more times did you come over without notifying us and did you ever enter the house? It felt that our privacy was violated during our stay.
I have pictures if you would like me to mail them (pictures did not copy over to submit review page)
I am surprised. We have never had a review less than 4.
Yes, the paint on the kitchen light switch is wearing off but it is not dirty!
Yes, the water from the fridge is slow but it is not dirty!
The cupboards and cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom, too small? Never heard that before.
There was and still is soap provided in each bathroom cabinet. We do provide plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and napkins. You knew that I was staying only 5 minutes from the property. If you ran out I wish you would have called or texted and I would have gladly delivered the paper goods to you, instead, you let me know in this review after you have checked out and I can do nothing about it.
All of our bedding is clean and washed after each guest.
There is no huge hole in any mattress cover. ??
Our house gets thoroughly cleaned after each guest. I checked the baseboards in the bathrooms. They were not dirty. They may need a little paint touch up in some places but they are not dirty.
The house is not new and it does needs continual maintenance, I agree. But I am proud of the home and it is kept very, very clean. Don’t even imply that it is dirty. That is not true.
I do not ask or expect any guest to do any linens or laundry. When you checked in, I mentioned that I would take the dirty sheets with me and you said no worries and that you would leave them in the laundry room while you were staying, which you did. Now, after the fact, you bring it up as a negative?
As far a respecting your privacy, we occasionally do access the garage (which is not included in the rental) it is apart from the house and locked, and I did come by to take out the trash cans and come back the next day to bring them back in. I’m sorry if that startled you.
I did not enter the house, and would I never enter the house or invade your privacy without your knowledge and prior agreement.
It appeared to me by all the alcohol bottles left in the trash and the marijuana receipts from Venice Beach that you left under the bed that you had a good time. We are sorry that you did not thoroughly enjoy your stay.
We love our home here in San Clemente. We live here when it is not rented.
Gary and Trisha
We traveled to San Clemente for our daughter's wedding reception. Everything about the house was perfect. We even had a few unexpected guests who didn't want to drive after the party and there was plenty of room. We spent an entire afternoon on the back patio with the beautiful ocean view and unbelievable sunset.
Beautiful view and a wonderful location.
My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed this mini-vacation. The house is located in a very convenient area - close to everything and the view of the ocean is great. We were lucky to be there when the weather was nice and the sunsets were spectacular. The house is spacious and very comfortable.
For Relaxation and Rejuvenation!
We had a thoroughly enjoyable time in this lovely home. Everything....from the wonderful beds, to the spacious living/family room, to the well-organized kitchen, to the easily accessible hot tub....all of it made us feel right at home! Thanks for sharing this attractive place with us!
