Lynn has an awesome property, wonderful views and everything you would expect in a 5 star luxury property. I would definitely recommend this property, it has everything that you need, especially if you like to cook! !Lynn is extremely helpful and informative.

Exquisite property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 nights in late-June, and had a phenomenal experience, the property looks exactly as it does in the photos and is VERY high end quality - you can tell it's been crafted with love and care, it's meticulously detailed and decorated, and is absolutely a real 'designers' home. Upon arrival, we were met by Lynn who gave us a tour of the property - she was wonderful and very accommodating throughout our stay, as well as giving us some information about the area and pointing us to a few choice restaurants. If we were able, we would absolutely give this place more than 5 stars - as I say, the rooms are decorated beautifully, the oceans views are unmatched, the deck is perfect for sunbathing. Despite being above a beach, the property is surprisingly quiet and tranquil, and not far below is a short walkway that can take you across the coast to the pier and a few cute stores. We had originally planned on travelling up the coast a few times throughout our stay, but to be blunt, this property was so lovely that we just didn't want to go out, and we wish we could have stayed longer! Would definitely recommend, and hope we're lucky enough to stay here again!!

This is a beautiful home in a wonderful location with spectacular ocean views from every room! We did not want to leave! It is exquisitely decorated with high end furnishings and has a gourmet kitchen and dining room with an outstanding ocean view. The stunning porch was perfect for our two daughters who enjoyed soaking up the sun and watching the surfers below. The location was perfect for our active family - a lap pool, a beach trail for running and walking, and gorgeous beaches are a short walk away. The owner, Lynn, is extremely responsive and accommodating. Our flight from the East Coast was cancelled twice due to a blizzard and she allowed us to change our dates on either end of our stay at the last minute. We have rented houses in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. and this was our absolute favorite! Thank you, Lynn, for sharing your special home with us! We will be back!

Perfection-Home Away from Home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding high end home and we loved everything about it! We have usually stayed in similar properties in Dana Point and this was our first time in San Clemente-it was perfection! This home is absolutely beautiful with high end amenities throughout. Ocean views are amazing from every room in the house! As you open the front dutch door through to the decks the ocean breezes are fantastic! We loved everything about this home-a decorators dream home. Lynn was amazing from the initial contact throughout our stay-she made the experience so wonderful-thanks Lynn! When we come out to California again we will not want to stay anywhere else! Thanks Lynn for a wonderful experience-truly perfection!

We were lucky enough to find this little gem of a condo, Lynn the owner was excellent with communication from the first email, she met us at the condo & showed us around. It's furnished like a magazine cover. Very comfortable & within walking distance to a fab coffee shop & the beach. The views are amazing. This was our first time in San Clemente area and it's very pretty. Would highly recommend it. But not for small children. It's for adults to appreciate.
