Beautiful setting! Well equipped Very Comfortable.
Shelley B. Sep 2022
The home was plenty large for a family 7. The home is older, tubs & showers are old and really discoloured. The beds are comfortable but I found the bed sheets very scratchy. Carpets are worn as is a lot of furniture, they need a good cleaning or replacing. Although the kitchen is well stocked with cook wear & dishes, it only had a sponge for cleaning & 2 thin dish towels, 1 travel size Palmolive dish soap that didn’t last 2 days. No plastic for storage of leftovers, no baggies, Saran Wrap, tin foil or even I night’s coffee supply. 2 very thin paper towels & we ran out of TP. When I complained about that, I was told their intent is to only supply the first couple of days. My cost per night didn’t reflect that. I bought dish clothes & dish towels & extra TP. The house was extremely hot. The street is noisy. It’s a crowded street with lots of multi family style home & apartments. Lots of partying on the block. It is also a very bright block with homes & buildings that are lit up so the night’s sleep was affected by that. There are 4 units in this building. The spot is very close to the beach, coffee shops & restaurants but I wouldn’t go back to this spot.
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Shelley. We're so sorry for the disappointing experience during your visit and we apologize for the inconveniences you endured. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we've passed your feedback along to be addressed by our local manager. We hope to have another chance to better impress you in the future.

Location is good. Large patio and living space.
Unit needs a deep clean which was communicated to owner upon our arrival. I was told it’s their busy season so no time. Must wear socks around house or feet will be black. We had little ones so had to put towels down on rug for them to play.
Unit is supplied with plenty of beach chairs, beach towels and clean linens.
Manager response:
Katie, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the patio and living space. We sincerely apologize for the cleanliness concerns you encountered during your stay with us. Our team of housekeepers takes pride in their cleanliness standards, as it is a top priority service we provide. We have passed your feedback along to our staff so they are aware of your concerns. On a positive note, we would like to share that we have addressed the issue related to the rug. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future!

The location is great. Listen to the waves day & night, view is awesome. Spacious unit, beds very comfortable, well equipped. Even has a garage and off street parking. We will be back!!
Elizabeth M. Jul 2022
The comfortable beds, impeccable views, well stocked kitchen, and great location make this home a favorite for us year after year. Vacasa makes it seamless. 5 star experience every time.
Terri T. May 2022
This is my 2nd getaway to this property! I just love the view & convenient location! You can walk to the beach & pier. You can walk to shopping & restaurants. The property itself is well stocked & the beds are super comfy!
Stephen P. Apr 2022
We loved the location and the views! Also enjoyed the layout of the home. Good privacy for family groups. Would suggest providing coffee and sugar as well as Kleenex in bathrooms.
Sandi R. Mar 2022
Lovely home with lots of room . The view cannot be overstated. Nice to have a garage and off street parking for extra vehicle. Clean and quiet. Beds are high quality ! The sunsets are gorgeous. Thank you for this wonderful siblings trip to San Clemente!
David R. Feb 2022
House was well appointed and the view was fantastic. Would stay again.

Absolutely loved this beautiful beach home just steps from the beach, pier, restaurants, cute coffee shops etc. This home was perfect for our family. Thank you for having us!
Kimi S. Jul 2021
Monterey A has awesome views of the ocean and the pier from two separate patio’s, that’s the highlight for sure
Patricia J. Jun 2021
The location and sound of ocean was great. The home however was not so great. The beautiful west facing picture window was covered in small child sticky smeary handprints. The stair rail to upstairs was also sticky and when i cleaned it with the lysol wipes (that I brought) was filthy dirty. Long black hairs in both upstairs bathrooms...on the floors and the counter tops. Lack of supplies. Hand soap bottles filled with water. No dish soap. Two dish towels, no hot pads. No things like foil, ziplocks, napkins. Just really cheap paper towels. Not what we expected for the price we paid. The two parking in the garage: unless you have a small suv or sedan you can't park in it. They are not transparent about the no street parking (per San Clemente restrictions) until you check in. We did contact VACASA three times as we discovered the cleanliness issues and we just got "sorry for the inconvenience". Would not stay here again.
Manager response:

John M. Jun 2021
Great location and a beautiful place !
Rebecca L. Jun 2021
Two Amazing balconies over looking ocean and pier.
Roomy, comfortable, clean condo.
Joanne G. May 2021
Perfect location from the beach The walk was a little steep but certainly doable. There were six of us from 50+ to 70 and were able to walk to the beach easily Plenty of beds for all and the most incredible views. Had breakfast and appetizers on the terrace Sheltered from the wind even early in the morning. Cooked breakfast and dinner. Walked to the beach for an outdoor lunch. Great place for a large group.
Ann B. May 2021
This home is even more beautiful than the pictures! Short walk to the pier and beautiful views from both decks. The home was fully stocked, plenty of towels, beach chairs and very comfortable beds. I’m already looking at dates to return!
Paula T. May 2021
This condo was well-stocked and convenient. It was clean and safe.
Kerry H. Apr 2021
Lovely beach home with the perfect location - walking distance to the pier and beach. Nicely decorated with beautiful views!
Lindsey S. Apr 2021
Loved the location & cleanliness of this beach house. The wonderful view & comfortable beds made our stay great, & we hope to come back next year.
Dionna B. Nov 2020
If you go into it knowing you’re paying for the central location and views, you’ll love this place. The layout and amenities of the unit are great for groups and families with older children. Every bedroom has it’s own bathroom, making this unit an ideal shared space. Any cook will appreciate the selection of serveware and appliances in the kitchen.

The condition and cleanliness of the unit are what knocked a star off. The carpets were worn and in need of a deep clean, some outlets weren’t working, the garage is very tight and there is no outdoor space for kids.

This is San Clemente so consider the steep inclines if you’re expecting older guests.
Manager response:
Thank you for for choosing to stay with Vacasa! We are sorry to hear you encountered cleanliness issues in the home. The carpets are cleaned regularly and deep cleans occur on a regular basis to ensure the home is in proper condition for guests. We appreciate the feedback regarding the outlets, and the owner will be sending out an electrician to inspect the home so future guests do not encounter this issue. We hope to host you again soon!
David R. Aug 2020
Great views. You can hear the waves crashing at night with the window open while you sleep. Place has great beach decor. Located a short walk to the pier and beach for whatever atmosphere you want.
Melissa O. Jul 2020
This property was exceptional! It was very clean and well maintained. The furnishings and decor were homey and comfortable. It was well stocked for all our needs. The view did not disappoint! The beach is within walking distance and the quaint town area offers much to do. The only draw back we found was one palm tree at the second floor balcony blocked what would be a “ perfect “ view of the coastline. We just looked around it :). I would recommend and re visit this property anytime! Ty Vacasa!
Frankie R. Jun 2020
The beds were really comfortable and very cozy rooms with awesome views of the ocean
Virginia L. Jun 2020
This is a lovely home away from home. Great for multigenerational families. Able to be together and have alone time. Very close to the beach and cute downtown area. It even has amenities for babies and the beach.
Cynthia Tom C. Mar 2020
We love the sunsets from the balcony. The location is great, close to the beach, close to walking to Del Mar. San Clemente is a treasure of a beach town. The staff at the Casa is very responsive, friendly, and we felt all our requests were answered promptly and professionally. We definitely give this place a five star rating.
Julie Z. Jan 2020
We loved everything about Monterey A -- amazing location for walks to the pier, amazing accommodations with 3 bedrooms each with a private bathroom, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, fabulous support from Vacasa staff, beds were great, view of ocean spectacular, nice balcony for enjoying the outdoors..... really can't say enough good things. We will be back !!!
Jennifer M. Dec 2019
Great location. Cute, very clean unit. Would definitely stay here again.
Elise C. Nov 2019
Loved the open living room with the splendid view of the San Clemente Pier and Ocean, every bedroom has an ocean view.
2 decks to enjoy with afternoon tea or Happy Hour!
The unit was very cleaned and we had all the items needed to enjoy our stay! Vacasa even provided a nice deck of card and wine opener. The unit is walking distance to the Pier and Downtown.
Margaret B. Oct 2019
Great view, comfortable beds, great to have a washer and dryer, plentiful beach towels, nice deck. I recommend this unit.
Linda W. Oct 2019
Location, location, location. Nice and quiet neighborhood surrounded by beautiful homes. Short walk to the beach. When you walk in the decor is so beautiful, it feels like you are entering a model home. It is very clean and the beds are very comfy.
The ocean views from the two balconies are amazing. Just take your groceries, clothes, and toiletries--everything else is provided. In addition to all the amenities, the home is very spacious, I would love to stay again next year.
Sue T. Sep 2019
This was a perfect beach house. Views from every room with just a short walk to the pier.
Annette V. Aug 2019
Amazing view and a wonderful ocean breeze. Hearing the waves break at night and in the morning when it's quiet is so relaxing. The home is definitely stocked with what you would need on a daily basis. We walked to the beach multiple days, had breakfast at the restaurant on the pier - a nice selection of places to eat and gelato for dessert. The walk back from the beach is not for the faint of heart. It's a heck of a hill but it's worth every step. A very fun area to stay in. The house was clean and very comfortable. This was our second time staying in this complex, different unit last time. My only suggestion would be that the cleaners mop the floor. It's swept and probably dusted but our feet were dirty just from walking inside the house. Probably a lost cause for an awesome vacation home which is rented non-stop!
Manager response:
Hello Annette, Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you enjoyed your stay in this home. Please know that our housekeeping team does clean the home from top to bottom prior to each guest's arrival, but we have let our housekeeping team know to schedule an additional cleaning of the floors for this home. We hope to host you again soon!
Lynn L. Jul 2019
The location, layout and furnishings of the condo, the views, and comfortable beds made for a relaxing family vacation. The bathrooms need updating, but they are large and workable. The high quality ceiling fans were a blessing as the weather was a bit warm. We barbecued almost every night and the kitchen was well-stocked (except there was only one cutting board) and the appliances nice. Lots of beach equipment was available for our use—great for families trying to pack light. Thanks for a great stay!
Lawrence W. May 2019
1. The location.
2. The ocean views form the first and second floor.
3. The spaciousness of the rental (3BR, 3BA)
4. 2 outdoor patios/decks with the ocean views.
5. Location in San Clemente in the bowl near the pier.
6.The friendly and professional manner of the staff before and during our stay, esp Alysse
7.Well Stocked kitchen for cooking
Weronika L. May 2019
The house was in a perfect location. The views were amazing. We were able to lay in bed and watch the sunset. It is very spacious and has great ocean views from all the rooms. Even when you eat breakfast in the dining room you can see the Ocean. The house had plenty of towels, beach towels, kitchen utensil and everything you need to cook. There are also beach toys, kids strollers, wagons, beach chairs, and umbrellas. The house was very clean the only thing I would recommend is to wash the rugs in the kitchen they were very dirty. Also I would recommend putting a rug on the top balcony some it was really uncomfortable standing there barefoot. The kitchen was updated and very well maintained, the bedrooms were clean with comfortable beds, a great pullout couch in one of the bedrooms and plenty of closet space. I would say that the bathrooms were a bit outdated but that didn’t really bother us. San Clemente is a great little town. The shops and restaurants are walking distance. You have a Starbucks and great restaurants near by. There is a local grocery store and CVS. If your looking for things to do San Diego and LA are both an hour away. Temecula has some beautiful wineries and the old town is really nice. I recommend the restaurant the goat and the vine, best pizza we ever ate. Temecula is only and hour away as well. Palm Springs is also a great place to visit which you can get a resort day pass and spend the day by the pool. We had a great time
Manager response:
Thank you so much for the kind feedback, Weronika! We are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and we will be sure the kitchen rugs receive proper attention. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

Susan Y. Apr 2019
This house is ideal for a girls weekend with three bathrooms, three bedrooms, 2 decks and a great kitchen. The location is ideal for walking around the shops or going down to the beach. The street was quiet so it felt like you could step away from being a tourist. And, the upper deck was where we spent most of our time as it provided killer views of the ocean, beach and the sunset. The only suggestion I would make is to have binoculars available as the water was very active with marine life, different boats, parasailing and surfers. I would definitely rent this place again.
John L. Mar 2019
Perfect location, very clean
Lindsey F. Feb 2019
Very comfortable and clean. Great ocean and sunset views. Central location with a short walk to the pier and ocean
Roland C. Sep 2018
I can't thank you enough for allowing us to stay in the 503 Monterey A property. When we saw that the place we stayed in, last year, was no longer available, my family freaked out. This "new" It was everything we hoped it would be, and then some. Given the opportunity, I would have stayed there until you had to have the police department remove me! You guys do an amazing job, and the customer service is always perfect. Thanks again...
Susan E. Sep 2018
The area is great! We had a great experience!
Gary B. Aug 2018
Very nice area. Great and very well supplied home. Nothing to improve upon, the home went beyond our expectations.
Sharon F. Aug 2018
Very very nice area. Can't think of anything to was perfect..we were a group of 4 ladies and we all loved our accommodations. We would all highly recommend your property and hope that sometime in the future we can return it's beautiful it's peaceful very very clean very very nice.
Shandra H. Jul 2018
Beautiful area! Everyone was very nice. Amenities were above and beyond what I expected. Everything was good!

Karen H. Jun 2018
Close to beach and town. Great amenities. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. We can't wait to come back again!
Lorianne R. May 2018
I loved the colors of the house. Very clean! Wonderful area. Everything was perfect and it couldn’t have been any better! Wonderful amenities! The kitchen had everything we needed as well as the rest of the house.
Rebecca C. Feb 2018
We really liked the view, the crown molding, three bathrooms, and the decor. The kitchen was nicely appointed as well. Good amenities. Can't think of anything to improve. Everything was in working order, no complaints. Thank you, we had a lovely time.
Frankie P. Dec 2017
Liked the proximity to pier/beach, views, and the staff response to problem. The area was perfect for our family.
