ACCOMMODATIONS

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.

THE BEACH

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.

COMPLIMENTARY BEACH GEAR:

Surfboards

Body Boards

Beach Chairs / Towels

Umbrella and Ice Chest

SHOPPING AND RESTAURANTS

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.

DAILY ADVENTURES NEARBY

• 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.

Amazing View and sound of the Surf!

  • 5 of 5

We heard about this property from a friend of a friend....and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. I came here with my husband and 13 year old son, and it was roomy enough for us. The condo was spacious, immaculate, comfortable, and the view of the ocean and sound of the surf were awesome. Sheryl and Doug were friendly and helpful, yet respected our privacy, and we felt really at home here. The free meal at their Grill at Surfin' Donuts was delicious, and an extra treat.

This gave us such a feeling of actually "living" in San Clemente, as it is in a nice neighborhood, not an area full of hotels. The downtown is charming and a pleasant walk. My husband and son took the 5 which was close by, and went to Six Flags, and I was able to explore the town. Finding a yoga studio and then getting a Tibetan bowl and gong sound massage, then walking "home" on the beach was a really fun, unusual discovery! The beach walk is over 3 miles long, didn't walk it all, but such a nice way to see the ocean and watch surfers. We took a train to San Diego Old Town one day from the Pier station, which was another great day. The highlight, still, was this lovely condo! We loved being on the patio and in the living room or kitchen, seeing that view and hearing the waves.....I'd highly recommend, and hope to be back!

Perfect and Spotless!

  • 5 of 5

My expectations were high based upon the photos and reviews, but I must say that said expectations were not only met, but exceeded. The unit was absolutely spotless. We did not find one single hair or any stray sand (how is that possible at a beach house?). Amenities-wise, we had everything that we could possibly need. In my past experience with rentals, they tend to be equipped with worn-out pots, pans, utensils, etc.; but here, everything seemed high-quality and in near new condition. From condiments, to ziplock bags, we had everything that we could possibly need. In fact, it would not be a stretch to say that it was better-equipped than our own kitchen at home.

Seriously I could go on and on... Decor, design, floor-plan layout, deck, view, location...all pretty much perfect. As the reviews state, the photos do not give this place justice.

The complimentary meal at The Grill was a nice touch. They have pretty much the best Breakfast Burritos that I've had. For this reason, we ended up eating there 3 times during our stay. Since we live pretty close by, this will be one of our regular spots when we are in town.

As far our hosts Sheryl and Doug, they were awesome. Very warm and gracious. We will be back next Summer, if not sooner.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect getaway! This was my second time staying at Sheryl's property, and it is truly exceptional... exactly as shown in the photos -- clean, comfortable, and great access to the beach and San Clemente amenities. Sheryl has thought of everything, right down to the mugs chilling in the freezer. My family had a wonderful time, and will definitely be returning.

Pictures do not do this stay justice

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was everything that we expected and more. All the amenities that we needed for a beach vacation (chairs, boards, towels, etc.) The beach is right down the hill and you can definitely see and hear the ocean from the unit. San Clemente is a wonderful, lowkey beach town that had enough to keep us entertained for a long weekend stay. We definitely hope to return and recommend this stay to others!
