Description from owner

Surround yourself and those you love in luxury, comfort and privacy. This wonderful, spacious beach home is perfectly located in San Clemente (known for having the "Best Climate on Earth") just steps from family beaches, the famous pier, fire pits, swingsets and downtown shopping and restaurants. Our home is the perfect place for families, extended families or groups of friends to escape.

Filled with an eclectic mix of custom-made, vintage and new furniture, the home has something for everyone. All mattresses are brand new, custom-made, for your sleeping pleasure. All linens are new, of exceptional quality and included in your stay (beach towels too). There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in our home. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths are upstairs (one master suite, one jack-and-jill set-up great for children). The master bathroom has a Waterworks Empire Soaking Tub and a separate shower with rain showerhead. The jack-and-jill bath has a fabulous claw-foot soaking tub, 2 separate sink consoles and plenty of room. 1 bedroom suite is downstairs with a full bathroom. All bathroom fixtures/linens are from Restoration Hardware and Anthropologie.

Our home features a gourmet kitchen with all new appliances, except for my grandparent's 1940's vintage Wedgewood Stove. Also included is a built-in beverage refrigerator and built-in recycling containers. All dishes, glassware and table linens are from Anthropologie. The large family room is great for any and all to hang out, read, play games and watch movies. A separate dining room seats at least 12 and offers plenty of room to linger over a long meal in comfort. Inaudible, large-load capacity, energy-efficient Bosch Washer & Dryer in laundry closet.

Two decks overlook the ocean, one with a marble and iron dining table for dining alfresco and the other off the master bedroom with plush chairs for watching the ocean, sunset/sunrise or reading and contemplation.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"The vacation was great, and the house was a large part of that. We had everything we needed at our fingertips. Walking in the front door was a delightful moment, not at all diminished as we saw the other rooms. As one family member said, 'We just walked into House Beautiful.' I wanted to honor my brother and his wife with the master suite, and the room was more than I could have possibly anticipated. Thank you for all the extra and thoughtful touches. We did enjoy the beach equipment and gear provided.The weather was nice as well. Stephen is a most gracious host and I felt that if we needed anything, he would have been a great resource. We all have wonderful memories and I would recommend your place to anyone. Thanks so much for providing your gorgeous home!" Jean Henzler, Spokane, WA (email sent to owner on August 2, 2010)

Wow...loved everything and it felt like home. Thank you for sharing your lovely home." Patricia K., Vermont (email sent to owner on July 15, 2011)
