Great location. Close to the beaches. Comfortable beds. Fully stocked kitchen. Would stay here again.
Laurie V. Jul 2022
We loved everything about this place! So clean and roomy for my family of 5. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare meals. The back patio was a wonderful retreat for my family to share dinner and play cards in the evening. The stairs are workout when coming up from the beach, but soooo worth it! Going back next year!!

We just spent nearly a week at this property and it was like a home-away-from-home. Beautifully furnished, with plenty of space to spread out and live comfortably. The location is amazing -- centrally located to fantastic shopping and restaurants, and so close to the beach and a nearby park that we had no shortage of entertainment options for our family (and especially our kiddos who, let's face it, are often the most difficult to please on vacations).

As with every vacation rental, there are a few areas that I would improve if it was my fulltime home: namely, a firmer mattress in the master bedroom, and a thorough scrub-down of the laundry facilities (which show signs of moisture buildup common to front-loading machines).

But all in all, this was a fantastic place to call home for a few days, and we will definitely keep it in mind should San Clemente call us back for another visit.
Manager response:
Hi, David! We're glad you chose to stay with us and love that your family enjoyed their time here. The laundry room has had a thorough cleaning. Thank you!

Short walk to the beach. At least two or three ways to get there. Bedrooms are clean and very spacious. Laundry machines are not coin operated, so you can wash your clothes without having to come up with change for the machines. Cheerful little apartment that feels very private and cozy. If you're unfortunate to have renters above you who are inconsiderate, you'll hear them all night long. If said neighboring renters are the inconsiderate type, you may find the washing / drying machine doors opened early leaving clothes wet or unwashed, as the laundry room is shared. If you choose the shortest path to the beach, prepare for 133 steps. Walking there from the the road is a bit further, but with no stairs. You still have to cover the same altitude up and down, so keep that in mind when deciding what you bring with you.

The unit was very clean and well stocked for cooking, etc. Location was excellent. Thank you.

Very clean, Well designed layout. The team was responsive and our group thoroughly enjoyed your stay.

We had a wonderful stay in this unit. It has ample space and is in such a great location. A short walk to the beach, or to the little main street. The walk back from the beach is uphill so just be mindful of how much you are carrying down. My four year old walks to/from the beach with us from this location fine and he even walked to Pizza Port with me this trip. There are a couple things to be mindful of. 1. The walls/windows are thin so you may hear more from your upstairs neighbors than you care for, but as long as they are respectful it is not a large issue. 2. If you are planning a longer stay with a lot of groceries you'll have to make some space in the cabinets for them. This kitchen is fully stocked so pretty much every cabinet is used. We were fine just leaving nonperishables on the counter as there is ample counter space, but something to keep in mind. Overall, we love staying at this complex and can't wait to come back!

When we arrived everything was clean and ready for us. We were nervous with 6 kids that the beds might be uncomfortable or the space would be too small. It was perfect! Everyone slept comfortably, the laundry facilities were so useful, and we were pleasantly surprised to find beach chairs, sand toys, and boogie boards in the garage. The proximity of the beach house to the beach was great! We could come up for meals and go right back down to play and relax when we were done. The back patio was perfect for relaxing and playing cards at night. The shower outside made it easy to rinse off so we didn't drag too much sand into the house. And if we did it was easily swept up. There are great shops and restaurants close, and a Walmart and Albertson's close by for grocery shopping. We would totally stay here again!
Kelloir S. Jul 2021
It was a spacious beach home that was walking distance to the beach. This unit had a great little patio that was perfect for rinsing off the sand leftover from the walk back from the beach and for grilling up dinner. The place was well ventilated, ceiling fans in the bedrooms, and had central air-conditioning. The property managers were very helpful and available to assist when we ran into issues with the garage door not opening.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your valuable feedback with us. We look forward to hosting your next stay!
Sandy V. Jul 2021
Have a great time staying here. My kids enjoyed staying here and close distance walk to the beach. We would love to stay here again.
Lisa M. Jun 2021
Very nice! We will definitely be back. Everything in this house has been recently updated and it is super cute and plenty of space. Great location too! We walked to beach and restaurants.
Sandi K. May 2021
Perfect location. The property has everything you need for a great time. 10 min or less walking distance to pier,shops, restaurants . Steps to beach. The property is very well maintained and managed. This is our 2nd time back and will continue to stay here. We have stayed at bothe Unit C and the downstairs larger Unit A. Both are great however if there are people staying in Unit B you can hear there movements upstairs in unit A. This is a jewel of a property plus has AC which many beach rentals do not...also has parking for 2 parking spaces which is rare!
Erin D. Apr 2021
This place was even cuter in person. We loved it! Easy check-in and checkout. It was clean and beautifully decorated. Lots of towels and beach toys, etc. We would stay here again!
Great access to the beach.
Patrick R. Oct 2020
We stay at this Vacasa yearly for the past few years. Last year we had all 3 upper levels for our wedding. This year we had the larger unit so we could have all our family and freinds over for dinners and family time with plenty of space for all of us. We never need a car either as we are able to walk to the beach and all our favorite places in town. The Vacasa is spacious, clean, located in San Clemente perfect and we feel right at home. ♥️
Whitney B. Oct 2020
Had such a great time in San Clemente with the family. Clean. Cute decor. Full kitchen. Internet. Amazing location to beach and downtown for price.
Elise C. Aug 2020
Perfect layout with a roomy kitchen, great living room and dining area in a beautiful enclosed garden, 5 minutes to the Beach, Del Mar street and the Pier. Very clean and well maintained.
Maria S. Jul 2020
This unit is one of my favorite places to stay when San Clemente. It has a/c, privacy, everything to cook family meals and it's super clean. I love the convenience of the parking spaces and it is perfect for walking to the beach!
Sally Y. Jul 2020
We have stayed in many different rentals in San Clemente. This has been our favorite by far. The location is perfect. You can walk with boards to the beach. Parking is provided which is a huge plus. It’s in a unit with three other condos but we didn’t experience any problems with noise. I love that it was newly remodeled and had air conditioning too. When we arrived the people staying above us said, “You got the DELUXE section. You’re so lucky!” We will definitely be visiting this location again.
Lainy J. Jul 2020
We love staying at n this home. Very close to the beach (after a long staircase, which provides a great workout!), restaurants, and shopping. The home itself is beautifully decorated, clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. We love the outdoor shower and access to free laundry facilities. The Vacasa staff here always takes good care of us!
Mary S. Nov 2019
Place was great very comfortable
Great mattresses so the beds were super comfy after a day at the beach
Ideal location
Walk to every thing
Paulette A. Sep 2019
Very comfortable well stocked home in prime location. Ceiling not well insulated for noice so plan on hearing the upstairs neighbors a bit. Also, the housekeepers let themselves in without knocking an hour early on the day of our departure so that was a little weird! :/
Enjoyed this home and would stay again.
Collin B. Aug 2019
The location is perfect, so close to everything. The home is so cozy, clean, and has everything you need. The only thing to consider is the walls are pretty thin, and you can really hear the upstairs neighbors. It’s loud enough that it woke me up a few times. But, I would absolutely stay here over and over again. One of my favorite places we’ve ever stayed.
Rebekah P. Aug 2019
This rental was an ideal size for a family of four. The furnishings are modern and very comfortable. The location cannot be beat. we would return.
James H. Aug 2019
The unit was very clean and well supplied. The location is great, one block walk down stairs to the beach and the pier.
Veronica S. Aug 2019
Great location close to town and steps from the beach. Kitchen spacious and perfect for gathering for coffee or a glass of wine. Quiet neighborhood a major plus. Great laundry facilities and garage. The umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards, and cooler were all in good shape, we used them daily.
Sally S. Jun 2019
We love this beach house!! It is very spacious and sparkling clean!! This was our 3rd visit and we will be back soon!! Everything is within walking distance. San Clemente is the best little beach town!!!
Elaina J. Jun 2019
This house has all the amenities. It’s is comfortable, practical, and beautiful. Perfectly located close to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and the pier.
Brian C. Jun 2019
This property is great. More than enough room for my familyh of 4. The property is well appointed with everything needed to enjoy your beach vacation. I will definitely be using Vacasa for my housing needs in the Orange County area.

The prince was great also.
Jessica A. May 2019
This home was gorgeously decorated, super clean, and surprisingly perfect for our family with a toddler. We loved walking to the park, beach, and restaurants (with toddler in stroller). Even with a little rain, this trip was perfect thanks to this wonderful home!
Paul D. May 2019
Great location.
Great space.
Plenty of room.
Nice decor.
Patricia N. May 2019
I was in San Clemente for my Wedding and staying in a Vacasa's home was the perfect touch to the Wedding. The Vacasa team left fresh flowers with a card and champagne bottle. The fourplex was extremely clean and had everything a family with small children could need.

Thank you!
Thresa B. Apr 2019
Apartment is exactly like the pictures! Super cute and was very comfortable for four. Kitchen is great for putting together dinner with everything you need. Place was very clean and everything was in working order. Both bedrooms have access to a bath off of bedroom. Everything is well labeled and easy to find. 10 minute walk to the beach and pier, gorgeous sunsets. Plenty of restaurants and shopping nearby with easy access to the freeway and Uber is everywhere!

A few things on the other side of the coin: One bedroom has two double beds that are not very comfortable or stable. Make sure to use mat in bathtub - super slick. Also, upstairs neighbors are very noisy and up late.
Susan G. Apr 2019
this Home was beautifully done- has a wonderful kitchen and lots of room and is in a great location to walk to the beach or the town
Amber P. Apr 2019
Our stay was perfect, the bedrooms are very spacious with comfortable beds and bedding. There is a bath shower combo in one bathroom and a shower in the other. The patio is private to this rental and it is all on the bottom floor so no stairs! I could not find the washer and dryer but I also did not inquire once I was there. It is close to the beach and to all the downtown shops and restaurants. I cannot wait to stay here again!
Kevin D. Aug 2018

Bill K. Jun 2018
This place was very clean and comfortable. We felt like we were right at home. It is in a perfect spot! We had no problems what so ever! We didn’t have to call them once. We had pretty much everything we could of thought of. Our experience was amazing! We will definitely stay here again if we come back to San Clemente! All of the property amenities were awesome and I have no complaints! We loved our stay! Thank you for the perfect getaway! We really enjoyed our stay and appreciate the cleanliness and perfect decor! Made ya feel right at home. This truly is the perfect hideaway. Thank you for making our vacation the best possible!
Lainy J. Jun 2018

Everything was so nice. I was impressed with the quality of everything in the house. It was superb!!! Thank you! THANK YOU! Loved working with you guys. We will definitely work with you again!
Andrea M. Apr 2018
I liked that the beach was close by but also downtown was super close. I think everything at the property was perfect.
Janeen M. Nov 2017
It was spacious, the kitchen and bathrooms were lovely. Close to Pier Bowl and Del Mar shopping. Very nice. Felt safe, people were friendly, enjoyed walks to the ocean. Plenty of silverware, dishes, and cooking utensils, refrigerator was nice and clean. Love the lights on the patio. We will definitely rent from you again, and interested in some of your properties that are on the ocean in San Clemente or Dana Point if possible.
Kathy B. Oct 2017
Great area, walking distance to pier, close to downtown. Keypad/Yale entry system worked. Nice amenities-Kitchen was great! Property is nicely updated - Everything good
Veronica G. Oct 2017
Small beach town safe area. Easy everything was done online. Condo included everything. The kitchen was stocked with all supplies, ample paper towels and toilet paper for our stay.
Kathie C. Sep 2017
It was clean and roomy and exactly what it was pictured to be. It had everything we needed including comfy beach towels. The decor was so nice and beachy. We wished we could stay longer, my girls said it was just like home. Even when we suggested going to another beach on our last day, they said they wanted to stay here it was so comfortable. Beautiful area, the neighbors were so friendly and the area felt safe. You don't always know what to trust when you book like this, I was concerned that it would not be as nice as it was depicted, but it was great! I will recommend to friends and hope to utilize your properties next year. Maybe a bigger place and bring more family. thank you.
Carol D. Sep 2017
Wonderful area. Great amenities. Perfect experience!
