Casa Mariposa is uniquely positioned at the opening of our beach trail allowing for white water views, and easy beach and trail access. It’s not uncommon to see dolphins swimming by. We are located in a tranquil neighborhood just north of the pier, where you’ll easily blend in with the locals, and are close enough to walk to the heart of downtown in 15 minutes. San Clemente is also uniquely positioned exactly between San Diego and Los Angeles, and each is approximately a one hour’s drive from here. And of course, Disneyland is 30 minutes up the road. Visit these locales for the day, then come home to the beach!

The free flowing, indoor-outdoor design is spacious and bright. View your flat screen TVs while lounging in the family room, or from your king-sized bed with the Westin Hotel’s “Heavenly Pillow-top” mattress. Two more can slumber on the collapsible EuroLoungers in the family room. Custom closets offer plenty of storage, and there’s also a built-in desk. Additionally included are 2 ceiling fans, a fireplace & plenty of storage throughout.

The custom kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and various spices, and includes a dishwasher and restaurant-grade Bertazzoni range. The bath is Jack & Jill style, allowing access from both the bedroom and family room. The toilet is separate from the shower, and each has its own sink, perfect for multiple guests. The bathtub/shower is a deep Euro-soaker, for those who enjoy bubble baths.


Directly in front is Mariposa Point Beach, perfect for swimming, surfing, body boarding, fishing and stand-up-paddling. The wave breaks over a small reef in front, and is typically best for surfing at a medium tide rising high. There are many other surf breaks within a very short walking distance, including T-Street Beach. World-class surfing at Trestles and San-O is just a 10-minute drive south. At low tide, the reef in front reveals star fish, sea anemones, sea urchins, muscles, snails, etc.



Body Boards

Beach Chairs / Towels



Our quaint downtown area is only a few walking blocks away, offering stylish boutiques, surf shops, antique shops, and local and international cuisine. There is also a Farmer’s Market every Sunday, offering souvenirs, art, and locally grown organic fruits, vegetables and herbs. Take a short stroll to our pier, where you can take in the sun and ocean breezes, fish, or relax and dine at The Fisherman’s restaurant.


• Theme parks, etc: Disneyland, SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, Knott’s Berry Farm and Legoland are one-hour’s drive or less.

• San Clemente’s new Aquatic Center features an Olympic-sized pool, and an “Aquatic Playground” for the little ones.

• Dana Point Harbor is a ten-minute drive north, with numerous options for shopping, dining, or deep-sea fishing. You can also rent kayaks, jet skis and sail boats, or take the short boat ride to our local Catalina Island.

• Laguna Beach is our neighboring seaside community, renowned for its gorgeous beaches, galleries, art festivals, and Pageant of the Masters (July).

• Big Bear Ski Resort is two-hours away, close enough for a day trip or over nighter.

• Catch the “Surfliner Amtrak” Train from our pier for a one-hour seaside excursion down the coast to San Diego, or to the Del Mar Race Track (July 17-Sept 4), or to Angel’s Stadium for baseball games.

INCREDIBLE space with immaculate furnishings only steps from the beach

  • 5 of 5

Likely the best VRBO we've rented. Doug and Cheryl couldn't have been more accommodating. The finishing touch was the free meal at their restaurant, The Grill. Incredible breakfast! The attention to detail throughout the unit did not go unnoticed. You'll want to stay at least 3 days to really take advantage of the neighborhood. We definitely plan to re visit. Thanks again Doug and Cheryl!

Perfect location, well-appointed, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We were meeting family members traveling from outside the country for a week-long vacation stay in San Clemente. Sheryl and Doug were exceptional hosts and patiently answered all our questions about the location, amenities, etc. We comfortably stayed with our two young adult children and were extremely impressed by the design and finish of the home. My husband (an architect) and I (a professional writer) are frequent travelers and are very particular about our accommodations - this place more than delivered. The home is impeccably designed and extremely clean and neat (very important to us!). We chose to bring food with us and were able to make most of our meals in the well-appointed kitchen - we found everything we needed. The view from the deck and home was gorgeous and the location was ideal, just steps from the beach and an easy walk into town. The only minor downside was the lack of air conditioning (we visited during a warm spell), but using the floor and ceiling fans and leaving the windows open usually did the trick. We would highly recommend this place.

Perfect in every way...awesome view, amazing owners, nice beach!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt at home! Sheryl greeted us and stayed in contact with us prior to our arrival (and throughout via text) and met us in front of the property with open arms. The place was absolutely everything we imagined and matched the pictures and YouTube video to a T! I am a neat freak and the cleanliness of the property surpassed my expectations.

We loved the modern feel, open concept, and large patio. Although the bathroom shower was a little tight (my hubby is a big guy), the size of the place overall fit my family of 3 perfectly. We travel a lot and typically take tons of non food items with us (we keep them in a bin labeled "California", lol) like aluminum foil, Ziploc bags, chip clips, etc--but, we didn't need to bring them here. The home was stocked with every appliance, pot/pan, utensil, and kitchen essential one could need. We were also excited to find a step stool for our daughter to brush her teeth in the bathroom and to assist in the kitchen (she is a big helper). There is also a washer and dryer just a few feet from the patio to use if you desire.

As a perk for staying at this property we received a complementary meal at Sheryl and Doug's restaurant that is close by (The Grill)--it had the best burrito my husband has ever ate (and he has been in the restaurant business for 15 years and is super critical)! We had a garage available for our vehicle (ours was too large to fit in comfortably) which housed beach chairs, an umbrella, surfboards, boogie boards, a cooler, etc. These items came in handy when we headed down the hill about 175 yards to beach! Although a steep hill, it was manageable and my daughter loved testing her endurance running up it when we headed home from our adventures on the beach.

The property is less than 10 minutes away from Dana Point and about a 15-18 minutes drive to Laguna Beach. The San Clemente Outlets are less than 5 minutes away! There were plenty of restaurants in the main town to choose from and very little traffic despite it being the week of July 4th when we visited. The property is close to a Ralph's grocery store, a CVS, and a Rite Aid.

You can't go wrong with this property and we will definitely be returning soon! If every VRBO owner was like Sheryl and Doug, we would never worry about booking ever again.

Our honest opinion,

Eureka & Danny

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely amazing. The interior is beautifully decorated perfect for a vacation. The private outdoor deck is marvelous and my new favorite spot to grill!

Everything was spotless when we arrived. The location is as good as it gets in San Clemente and the view is as good as it gets anywhere in the world. The beach is a short walk away and there are so many fun things to do in San Clemente. I fell in love with the town right away.

Sheryl is extremely friendly and working with her made everything easy, fun, and hassle free!

The only thing that was difficult for me was leaving!

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner has thought of everything you could possibly need or want and We absolutely loved it. The view is amazing and listening to the ocean everyday was so relaxing. The outside patio is perfect to sit on and have a meal or read a book. Walking to the beach and pier was a breeze but climbing the hill on the way back was a bit rough with all the beach gear. This is one of the top 5 places I have rented and was far better than any of the 5 star hotels I have stayed at in Southern California. We hope to be back again for another stay in the future. Please note it was clean and in pristine condition which I never say about rentals but this one really is! I usually clean our first day and I did not need to do that. We also enjoyed the San Clemente trolley which took us all over for no charge.
