From here, it’s also an easy 10-minute walk to Fisherman’s restaurant in the pier bowl area, or to T-street beach, or to San Clemente’s quaint downtown for shopping and restaurants.

It is the essence of San Clemente beach, with bamboo flooring, palm trees, ocean breezes, and a free-flowing, indoor-outdoor atmosphere. It invites you to lounge outdoors on the deck, or relax inside on the leather sofas while watching a movie on the high-definition flat screen TV with surround sound and fully-loaded on demand options. The open and fully equipped kitchen offers bar-style eating or sit-down dining, with a direct view of your friends on the deck, or of the flat screen inside if you choose.

About Bob Rountree

I moved to San Clemente in 1972 as a young boy and grew up in this beautiful sleepy little beach town. I love that San Clemente has maintained many of its great qualities as it has become very popular as a beach destination. I love the small town feel of it and its great beaches. I realized a dream when this property became available to me and allowed me to get this close to the water. I look forward to sharing that blessing with others while staying here.

Bob Rountree purchased this house in 2002

Why Bob Rountree chose Orange County

This property is uniquely located close to everything, most importantly the beach and beach trail access. It has a very comfortable and open layout that captures the beach lifestyle and weather. Smelling the ocean and feeling the breeze on a daily basis is wonderful. If you are looking to take advantage of beautiful San Clemente and what it has to offer, you are in the heart of it here.

Perfect Sun and Sand Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house. Great amenities and great location. Perfect for our little kids (6 and 3). They splashed in the hot tub when we weren't at the beach. Used the wetsuits and surfboards for an afternoon of teaching our oldest about the ocean. We'll be back!

Excellent Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We had a very easy experience working with Bob. The property is well maintained and was ready for us as agreed. The proximity to the beach, pier and trail creates opportunities for even short impromptu walks to watch the surf or view the sunset. We look forward to visiting again.

The property combined a great location close to the beach with a nice house and amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic trip. My wife, four boys in high school and I truly enjoyed the house and its close proximity to the beach. It was a real help to have beach amenities including surf and body board, wet suits and chairs available. The house was in very good condition. The only very minor issue we had with the garage door (ended up a battery) was very quickly and helpfully addressed - Bob was responsive and great to work with. The rooms, electronic equipment, kitchen and patio were great! Very thankful for a wonderful place for our family vacation.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend. We came out for the Pacific Paddle games and needed a convenient spot for the race and a few days of surfing. We found it. It's close to everything in San Clemente and a short drive to Dana Point where the race was. You're steps away from a path that takes you to the ocean.
