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.
The Owner purchased this house in 1999
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!
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.
Nancy and David,
Just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to San Clemente and our stay at your house. You have a very nice place and we had a great time there. We especially liked the proximity to the beach and Ave Del Mar. Everything at your house was just fine, and we did not have difficulties with anything. We left your place at 11:00 am on Friday morning, and the housecleaner was there waiting outside to get started on her work!
We had a wonderful stay at the beach house. We had come from San Diego and then Disneyland so it was so nice to park the car for 4 days and just walk around San Clemente. We walked to the beach and town and never had to put the kids in the car again until we left. The house was perfect for our family of 4. I really appreciated the "green" cleaners and other amenities. My 4 year old also loved the addition of the Apple TV so she could watch shows. If we are ever back in Orange County we'll look to stay here again.
This cute bungalow is in a great location. The kitchen has been updated with slate floors, granite countertops, gas stove, etc.
The home has hardwood floors throughout. It was very pristine and well organized. This rental is pet friendly and has a good sized secure back yard. I would highly recommend it.
We so enjoyed our stay at the beach house! Our dog, Sadie, loved sitting on the deck and watching people walking their dogs. I walked to the end of San Clemente pier almost every day during the beautiful Feb. weather. This was our second year renting and it felt like coming home. Neighbors were delightful!
Property was clean and in a terrific location for walking into town or the beach
Lovely beach cottage close to town and beach. It has all that is needed to make your stay comfortable and convenient.
We would definitely stay again and recommend it to others as well!
Our stay at the beach house was fantastic. My parents, brother, dog, and I spent a lovely holiday weekend at the house where we made Thanksgiving dinner that we enjoyed in the cozy dining room. We loved spending mornings and evenings relaxing on the front porch or reading in the living room when it was cold outside (we're from Colorado but some of us are wimps about weather below 60 degrees). My dog LOVED the huge, fenced in backyard. We all loved being walking distance from the beach and from all the town has to offer. Brunch at Cafe Mimosa was our favorite meal. We enjoyed shopping and strolling through town. Not having to drive was wonderful.
The house was fully equipped. Photos and information were completely accurate. Everything was really clean and ready for our arrival. The host was available for all my dad's questions. We would definitely recommend this property and will certainly consider staying here again.
