This charming beach getaway is just a 100-yard stroll to the sand, and it comes with all the beach toys, including surfboards, body boards, chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc. Plus, it is uniquely positioned just steps away from our 3.5 mile beach trail. No more loading the car with beach gear, and no more renting equipment and searching for a parking space, ‘cause you are at the beach! After a beach day, enjoy a cocktail on your deck, or soak in the hot tub on the patio. 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. World-class surfing at Trestles and San-O is a 10-minute drive south.


This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located in a tranquil neighborhood, perfect for sleep-ins and peaceful evenings. Make yourselves at home sunbathing on your private deck, or entertain friends and family while bbq-ing or jacuzzing on your secluded patio. 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. Enjoy the wireless internet throughout, as well as centralized heating. In the master bedroom, sleep tight on your king-sized bed with an attached bath, or wander to the hot tub with direct access from this bedroom. All 3 bedrooms sleep 2 people each, with room for 2 more people. Each bedroom has its own high-def, flat screen TV with on demand, a ceiling fan and plenty of storage. Additionally, complimentary laundry facilities for your use only are located in the garage below. And, there’s parking for 3 cars directly in front.

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.

Great House by Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing vacation here. Bob was very courteous and helpful, telling us about nearby places to check out. The house is nice, with comfy beds and modern furnishings. The boardwalk nearby is relaxing with a local vibe. We wish we could have stayed longer.

PS- Stayed here with our child- Kid-friendly.

Comfortable, all we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great home, great location, all we needed. Surprised by the long steps access to front door (careful if travelling with companions who would have difficulty with stairs). Sweet to arrive to nice music playing, water and coffee!! Thanks :)

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!
