John A. | Jun 2023
I lived in San Clemente for over 20 years and walked by this house hundreds of times so I was very happy to rent it. It's very close to the downtown (like one block over from Del Mar the main street in SC) and all the shops and restaurants. That is the main reason I gave them four stars. Here is why I ding them one star. When we first walked into the house there was a very strong smell in the house, similar to being in an Antique store. We opened as many windows as we could to air the place out and that seemed to work very well. We tried to turn on the fan in the main living area but it did not work. I called Vacasa when we arrived on Thursday because of the overhead fan but they never called me back. Two days later a fan on a stand miraculously appeared and no one in our family knew where it came from? I guess Vacasa had someone drop it off. If they would have just called me I would have said it was not necessary. The house is very nice but it's littered with sticky notes asking you to not move this and not touch that, I guess they had guests that did not treat there home very well. My only other complaint is we did not have the entire house to ourselves. When I asked Vacasa if we had the entire house they said yes but they don't tell you that someone is living on the same property above you in the same house (they do not have access to your section of the house but they do live there full-time). The gentleman living above us was not super noisy but you can hear him walking around. It was Vacasa's misrepresentation of the total home that bothered me, had I known in advance I would have still rented the house and I would rent it again if I needed to stay in San Clemente. Loved the history behind the house built in 1927 and apparently the fourth house built in San Clemente.

Where is San Clemente, CA?

Snugly sandwiched between booming Los Angeles and adventure-filled San Diego in sunny Orange County, you'll find San Clemente to be ideally located to experience all things Southern California. This surfer-friendly town is bursting with palm trees, enchanting beaches, and quaint boutiques you can easily walk to from most San Clemente vacation rentals, while still being within an easy day's drive to the aforementioned big cities...and desirable beach towns like Newport Beach and Laguna Beach, each under 30 miles north.

Things to do in San Clemente, CA

Aspiring beach bums will love spending time catching waves at famous San Onofre State Beach, which boasts some of the best waves in all of Southern California. But don't worry - if you don't want to surf, there are still great areas here to spot ocean life, such as whales, dolphins, and sea lions. So, grab your camera and/or your surf board for a memorable day on the beach!

Get in an invigorating workout along the San Clemente coastal trail. Spanning almost three miles, this oceanfront path is a popular spot for walkers, joggers, and bikers alike. And you'll understand why after catching a glimpse of the breathtaking views, especially during sunset.
