This unit is small but comfortable. The bed is nice and pretty much fills the whole bedroom. The kitchen amenities are rather spartan and the kitchen is small even for one. We had a couple of issues that management was prompt to address. Location was easy to get to. The view is fabulous.

We enjoyed our stay at this great location. The bungalow is compact but has what we needed. Nice view.

- it is close to the beach
- gorgeous view
- nice little spot to sit out with a drink or nibbles and watch sunset
- very comfy bed
- very spacious sofa bed
- decent amount of space for a small apartment
- plenty of key essentials like washing/ towels/ linen/ fans etc
- decent kitchen with utensils
- tucked away from the public
- has a very nearby 7/11
- really lovely nearby cafe, Moulin, delicious pastries/ sandwiches/ desserts
- two big TVs with Netflix and Disney access to chill to.
- well organised, very clean, easy to find

Not cons, but things to be aware of:
- you do have to walk up and down a hill to get to the beach
- it’s a mile walk along the beach front to get to pier/ shops/ main restaurants (I didn’t mind this, but worth being aware of)
- I wouldn’t say it would be the best place for families with young children or more frail/ elderly people, but 7/8 upwards, brilliant.
- lighting isn’t great in the flat, particularly in that it’s quite gloomy in the evenings
- the flat would benefit from some new furniture that wasn’t so big/ heavy looking and dated, same with decor. Some light coloured furniture, plain walls/ sea theme decor here and there, would lighten the apartment and make this already lovely apartment seem, quite easily, very fancy and give it a more beachy/ relaxed look
- it is quite secluded but some extra security on the door/ windows or a safe box would be a great addition.

All in all, we loved staying here and would definitely come here again and recommend it to other people.

Loved sitting on the patio and watching the ocean waves, freighters and Catalina Island- very relaxing. Bed was very comfortable, the kitchen was small and needs a toaster with a few more dishes. Would like a firmer sofa. I loved it.
Manager response:
Hi, Richard! We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your visit to Hidden Beach Bungalow. There is a toaster oven guests can utilize, and we'll be providing more plates. Thank you!

We had a great vacation here! The view is absolutely amazing. A little bit of a walk accessing the property, but the view makes it worth it. The distance to the beach is not something we wanted to walk, so we decided just to drive down. There is paid parking as well. The beach is very rocky. We also visited the state beach which is 10 minutes from the property. It is a much nicer beach but the parking price is higher. There were beach accessories at the house we were able to use which made it great! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Clean and comfortable. Lovely view and coming from overseas and staying solo it has a very safe feeling. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

First time to San Clemente, and the bungalow was a good spot to call home for a couple of days. Unit was clean and neat, although it`s a bit more worn from what the pictures show. Views were spectacular from the deck, and the sound of the ocean in the bedroom was delightful. Kitchen was adequately stocked with cookware and dishes, and we appreciated the dish detergent and laundry soap. While the beach is walking distance, it`s a hike no matter which way you go. You can either walk down the road a ways and go down a large set of stairs in one direction, or attempt to walk a huge hill in the other direction. The bedroom was nice sized, but the bed was a little big for the room - one side of the massive bed had a bedside table and room to climb in, but the other side was really close to the wall. There was only about 8` from the bedpost to the wall, so my husband (a bigger guy) could only get in from one side. There are a couple different sets of steps in the unit and lower ceilings in some rooms. Perfect size for a couple, but if you are planning on 3 or 4, it may help to know that there are 2 deck chairs and 2 chairs at the pub height table on the patio, and 3 chairs at the pub height table inside. Phone and email support was great. I inquired on another one of the company`s properties, and they emailed me back right away with answers to my questions on that one and suggested this one that was actually closer to where we wanted to be. Quick turnarounds, very professional. Not sure if it was because of the short time frame, but I wasn`t sent instructions on specifics of how to access the unit and where to park. We had a time to meet a representative, but we got there awhile before he did. So, I called the number on my receipt, they answered right away, and walked me through getting into the unit (through a gate on the side of the building, up a flight of steps, past another unit, down a flight of steps, past another unit, down a second flight of steps, to the left to an un-numbered unit), which you wouldn`t find without instructions. Really glad we arrived in daylight!! Having off road parking was a huge plus, even if it did feel a little weird parking in the neighbor`s driveway in front of a No Parking sign :) Overall, we were very pleased with the unit and our time in San Clemente. The patio time alone made it all worthwhile. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

A small private retreat located in San Clemente. Ocean view from the patio is beautiful. Walkable distance to the beach for fit individuals. This is a small apartment, better suited to a couple. But with so many things to do in the area, you won’t be spending much time inside. I would definitely return for another stay.

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to rest and get away for a few days. This condo was perfect. Beautiful view of the ocean, walking distance to the beach and local farmers market. We fell asleep to the peaceful sound of the ocean waves. Kitchen well stocked and condo very clean. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

My son and I stayed at the Beach Bungalow for 5 nights. This was the perfect location and such a great value. Walking distance to the beach and throughout town. We also loved the views of the Pacific Ocean. This place was so comfortable for us and we will be back!

Such a great Place! We had 4 in our family and everyone was happy with the space that we had. Close to the beach and places to eat. Thank you for the recommendation Seabreeze! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
spencer . Feb 2016
So happy with this rental choice! Love San Clemente, but this condo by the beach made me fall in love even more! The condo is so comfortable and steps away from a beach side. I loved taking a run, stroll or just taking in the sunset view!!! Will definitely return! Seabreeze was gracious and kind. Thank you!

I cannot say enough about the hospitality, value, location, and sheer bliss this accommodation afforded us. This is the place to be in San Clemente. Walk to the beach in seconds. Fabulous breakfast, lunch and dinner just steps away. And with the small kitchen available, you can take a short jaunt to the market or a little farther to a beautiful grocery store for snacks and meals to prepare for yourself. We just loved everything about this rental. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I am so happy we booked this home! The kids were very happy about being so close to the ocean, they made me walk them down to it every day. Such a welcoming feel, we really couldn’t ask for anything more than what was provided. We weren’t looking for a mansion, just a nice place (with an incredible ocean view) that we could stay and visit the beach. And that is exactly what we got!

joelle . Nov 2015
My husband and I looked high and low for a place like this, so we were very glad we found this sweet little rental. It was a magical week with wonderful views everywhere we went. We loved how quaint this home was, and the cleanliness when we got there. It was also very nice to be granted off street parking! Great ocean views, and great vibes. Thanks!

Thank you so much for this cozy rental. My fiancé and I were looking for a small place for a romantic getaway and this suited us perfectly. The views here are so incredible, we were able to eat dinner each night on our patio overlooking the Pacific. Very romantic, very cozy and comfortable.
