About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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

We invite you to come to San Clemente to get the real Southern California experience and enjoy the best climate in the world. Our home is 20 minute walk to the beach (or a 5 minute drive).

San Clemente is consistently the best surfing on the Southern California Coast locally: Trestles, San Onofre, or travel 30 min south to Carlsbad and San Diego beaches.

Go South to Del Mar Race Track 'where the surf meets the turf ' (only 45 min. away). Or take a drive 1 hour down the coast to San Diego for Lego, Seaworld, Balboa Park, Coronado Island and the World Famous San Diego Zoo. Legolas's is only a 15 minute drive to the south.

If you go North you can go to Disneyland, Anaheim Angels, and Ducks, Knottsberry Farm all 45 minutes away.

We are right next to the new San Clemente outlet Center and you can spend a whole day here and it is less than a 5 minute drive from our home- you can also enjoy the Carlsbad Outlet Mall which is 15 minutes south.

Dana Point is a 5 mile drive and from there you may take a Catalina cruiser to the island, book a whale watching excursion or deep sea fishing trips. There are shops and fine dining in the harbor and Dana Point Marine Institute with the Brig Pilgrim, the baby beach, rent jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks and also enjoy the Doheny State Park which has volleyball courts, barbecue pits, surfing, rent 4 people bicycles and enjoy the snack boards and the nice lawn area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Trish and Gary,

We hope that you enjoyed your holiday as much as we did ours. Your house was as promised - the sunsets spectacular.

Being a gardner, I just loved the birds and flowers in your yard. Wish my roses were as hearty as yours!

Wonderful family experience! Will stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Gary and Trisha were extremely warm hosts who made everything extremely comfortable for us, including being very understanding about allowing us to check in early and check out late due to our toddlers' nap schedules. The house is wonderfully spacious, and very much as described, with a perfect outdoor area of a great size and with a beautiful view. The adults were able to truly relax and let the kids and dog wander the grounds because of the complete fencing all around the property. Gary and Trisha have thought of so many factors when you look at how much their place feels like a fully stocked HOME instead of just a rental. (The master bathroom could use a shower head with stronger water pressure and some liquid hand soap for the sink like the hallway bathroom, but this is something that was not a problem for us, given how excellent the home is in other aspects).

We have traveled extensively and stayed in vacation rentals domestically and internationally, and noted our hosts' exceptional friendliness and response times. We DEFINITELY intend to stay here again. Thank you, Gary and Trisha!

We rented the house for 3 days and we had an awesome time! We wish we could have stayed more. The house is exactly what you see in the pictures. Beautiful and big! The view is amazing and the hot tub looking at the stars at night was my favorite! They provide you with everything you need! Towels, beach toys, beach chairs, cooler, movies, etc. Thank you very much for sharing your house with us!

Everything we had hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a family vacation for 7 of us, which included my husband & myself, our two children and their spouses, and our 3 month old grandbaby. We thought renting a house would be a great way to have a low key vacation with a newborn -- being able to have a kitchen and a large relaxing space. We've done hotels and camping in this town every summer for almost 30 years. San Clemente is an ideal place to vacation, with its wonderful beaches, convenient & charming town, and great eateries (our three faves are the Bagel Shack, Pedro's Tacos, & Ellie's Table).

First, let me say that Gary and Trish were a DREAM to work with. They answered all emails quickly, were so easy going and friendly, and were punctual at check in/check out. Super great people.

The house was located in a nice, quiet neighborhood. I had originally been seeking beachfront properties, but I think now I prefer the neighborhood location instead since it provides much more peace and quiet. There are two parking spots in the driveway, which I can't say would have been the case beachfront!

The house itself is well kept, and it was easy to feel right at home with the well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, as well as large living room space with cushy furniture. Also the house was very neat and clean upon arrival. We especially loved the backyard space, though not large, it had a great spa, lovely well tended garden with flowers and roses, a table to seat 6, and million dollar view. We loved sitting in the spa, which was situated perfectly in the corner of the yard to enjoy the view, and watch the sunset each evening.

Everyone in our family agreed that this rental worked perfectly for our family. We will definitely be back!

Thanks Gary and Trish for the great experience (our first VRBO)!
