Orange County House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Welcome to this gorgeous Spanish beach cottage with stunning ocean views, located just one block from the pier and two blocks from historic downtown San Clemente. This Spanish style home was completely renovated and feels like you are in a resort with all its amenities, (The pictures speak for themselves). This home is equipped with everything you will need for that perfect vacation, just unpack your bags and enjoy. Don’t forget the bathing suit, a must have.

The beach awaits, beautiful sunsets, great surfing, stroll on beach trail, tour the downtown shops, walk to the pier or downtowns' fine restaurants, go wine tasting, take in a play at the local Cabrillo Playhouse, go antique shopping, all just a few blocks away, or just enjoy the casual laid back atmosphere of San Clemente!

This home offers an ocean view deck with patio table for dinning or just hanging out, enjoying the views or taking in the sun. There are also several other outdoor dining areas to enjoy. You can dine in front of the outdoor fireplace in the back yard or just sip on some wine or have your cup of coffee on the front patio, all offer serenity, ocean breezes or views.

Once the sun goes down enjoy the indoor or outdoor fireplace for a romantic evening or just play cards and games on the dining room table that can accommodate everyone. There are two flat screen TV’s to enjoy movies. Every room has a ceiling fan but they are rarely needed as the average summer temps are around 79 degrees.

About Max Jones

My wife and I are retired and would love to share one of our favorite spots in the whole world with others while we are out of town enjoying our wilderness ranch in Washington State.

Max Jones purchased this house in 1998

Why Max Jones chose Orange County

This is one of only a few hundred properties that are on the San Clemente Historical List. It still has its historical character but has been completely renovated with all the modern amenities one could ask for and only a block to the pier.

What makes this house unique

Stunning ocean sunsets from the deck and cool ocean breezes await.

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 5 of 5

Casa Elena is a nice home away from home in San Clemente. We have stayed for a week the last 2 years. The location is great for beach access, walking, dining, train to San Diego, shopping, etc. The property has ample room for entertaining family or friends with a great rooftop view of the sunset. It also has off street parking which is a plus. The owner is great to work with.

Wonderful stay at Casa Elena

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend a stay at Casa Elena. We had such a good time last year we came back again this summer. The house is clean, well kept and very comfortable. The beach chairs and boogie boards were great. The beach is a short walk as is downtown. Lots of excellent restaurants nearby and fun spots for a night out. The location is perfect. The rooftop deck is amazing with a beautiful view. It was our favorite spot to spend time and one of the main reasons why we will come back. The rental process was very efficient and simple.

Comfort and Character in San Clemente!

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Casa Elena was one of our most memorable family vacations! The home exemplifies the Spanish character of this wonderful Oceanside village! All the amenities of home and a short walk to the beach. We especially loved the rooftop terrace with expansive ocean views and the outdoor fireplace in the backyard. This property is a gem; exactly how you see it online. Thank you Casa Elena!!

Cozy and adorable!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my family of 4. With so much to do in the area, we were in and out frequently; but with the 2 large beds and pullout sofa, it was perfect to come home to each night. The view from the roof is spectacular in the morning while having a cup of coffee. We were a little sad the hot tub was off limits, but with the ocean just a 5 minutes walk away, that it didn't matter. I wouldn't recommend this house for small children with all the potential breakables, but for kids 10+ they have a blast! Thanks for letting us borrow you awesome beach house! :)

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our family vacation to San Clemente: beautiful little beach house, walking distance to the ocean, pier, and downtown, lovely roof-top dining, and much more. The house was clean and comfortable for our family of four and the kitchen is adequately equipped, so we could cook and enjoy our meals from the roof-top view. We will definitely come again and would recommend it for anyone we know traveling to the area. Thank you so much for a wonderful visit! What a lovely life we lived for our week in San Clemente!
