This lovely beach house is located less than 400 yards to the Beach and Pier! A short walk takes you to the heart of downtown, where you will find Del Mar street, known for it's charming shops, restaurants, outdoor cafés, farmer's markets, art fairs and classic car shows.
This delightful beach house boasts the quaint charm of a California bungalow. You will find hardwood floors throughout, ceiling fans, a large enclosed yard for your pets to enjoy with enlarged patio & BBQ for outside dining. This appealing beach house has ample off-street parking for two cars.
You will find all the amenities that you need as this beach house, comes fully equipped, even with an outside shower, beach towels & chairs provided!
There is plenty to see in San Clemente, however if you are interested in venturing out, you will find other beach cities such as Dana Point and harbor, where you can picnic, jet ski or catch a cruise to Catalina for the day. Laguna Beach is just a quick ride north and a great way to enjoy its well-known art galleries, shops and eateries.
If you are still not satisfied, you can head south toward Carlsbad or San Diego where you will discover great shops, restaurants, Legoland or even Sea World. If you do not feel like driving, you can always catch the Pacific Surf-liner train, as it stops right at the pier for a day excursion down or up the coast. Of course, there is always Knotts Berry Farm, Disneyland and Hollywood within an hours reach!

Hi, we are Nancy & David , owners of San Clemente Beach House Retreat. We currently live in Los Angeles, CA. We both grew up living near the ocean and have always found it home for us. We enjoy traveling a lot and prefer to rent a home or a condo wherever we go. We know what we like to see in a vacation rental for ourselves so we've tried to incorporate this into our own property. When we first bought the house in 1999 we lived in it for over 3 years. After a few years of long-term rentals we decided that the house would be perfect as a vacation rental and as it turned out, we were right! People from all over the country and the world have enjoyed it.
Owner purchased this House in 1999
Why Owner chose San Clemente
When we first bought the house, not only was the location perfect but it had a great California Bungalow style, which we loved. We loved the character and charm of the house. Since the house was a short walk to the beach and town, we found ourselves often walking to our favorite restaurants for dinner or to catch the sunset on a winter's night. We also often walked into town for the farmer's markets and village fairs and of course the many street fairs, classic car shows or surf shows. We loved our little beach house and when it was time to leave we felt so many others would love it too, which is why we decided to share it as our beach house retreat!
What makes this House unique
Every time we come to our beach house there is a sense of calm and serenity. I always feel the warmth and coziness of the house. Each room offers it's own unique feel and energy, which brings me comfort and peace. We love to take our dogs for a walk near the beach and towards town and to window shop on Del Mar st. or stop for coffee and tea at the Hawaiian coffee shop. We also love having breakfast at Antoine's on El Camino Real or dinner at either the Beach Fire or Avilla's Mexican Restaurant. Our beach house is truly a retreat for us and we hope for the many guests who have stayed.

Great place for a beach getaway
I highly recommend this property! The owners keep it well maintained and it is located in a great neighborhood. It’s a 10-15 min walk to the beach and to shopping and food on Del Mar. I came here to celebrate my birthday with a small group of friends and it slept everyone comfortably. My dog enjoyed the backyard and all the walking we did in this dog friendly town. I’m already looking forward to my next trip and this property will be on my short list!
Loved our stay!
Great location, only a few blocks from the beach! House was very charming and nicely decorated. The warm atmosphere added to our birthday celebration and made it a memorable occasion. Hosts were very accomodating for our last minute booking request. Perfect VRBO in San Clemente! Thank you for a wonderful experience!!
Great house. Very Comfortable!
Great rooms and ample cookware for nights eating in. Good suggestions for food. Plenty of beach chairs and towels. Even had sun tan lotions. Comfy beds at night and tv options were enjoyable.
We rented this house for the month of January with our newborn baby and dog. It was fabulous. It is in the perfect location, walking distance to the beach and pier, downtown, and the Camino. The house is fully equipped and has great outdoor space. The owners are also wonderful!! It was the perfect spot to spend the month and we would rent again in a heartbeat.
Christmas in San Clemente
Our Christmas stay was very pleasant. The house had everything we needed and more. (especially parking!!!)
The two room suites were perfect and the beds were comfortable. I enjoyed the kitchen, and fire pit was a treat, The wood floors were great for the dogs.
Everything worked, was clean and we would love to return for another visit.
Perfect for Our Family Vacation
The home was very clean, very comfortable beds, equipped with everything you need. The owners put a lot of thought into setting up this home. Location was great! We did have a handicap person with us so the beach access near the home would have been difficult. We found a parking lot very close to the beach which didn't require the hill stair climb. Our stay was perfect and very comfortable.
