About Laura Clark

I've lived in San Clemente for 18 years after 10 years in Europe. My home is filled with eclectic pieces from many countries so of course the adjoining Casita Laurita reflects my style!

Why Laura Clark chose San Clemente

I've always loved the 'southwest' section of San Clemente, the older, sought after area close to well known surf spots and pristine beaches. From the moment I stepped foot into this house, I knew it would be my 'home' for a very long time. And now, I welcome guests from around the world to share in this little bit of paradise, San Clemente Beach.

What makes this studio unique

The casita is walking distance to the beach, pier, downtown, shops, bars, restaurants, grocery stores, train stop (catch the train to LA or San Diego right from the pier!)

The whole stay was great. The place was perfect and exactly like the pictures. We were able to come and go as we pleased. She checked in on us and was very helpful when needed. Would definitely love to go back.

Owner's Response: You two young ladies were a delight to have here at Casita Laurita for a few days. I'm so glad that you found the studio be "just like the pictures". I think that is so important when presenting a room to a potential guest over the internet, so I sure do appreciate that comment! Please come again soon. Sunny San Clemente and Casita Laurita will always be here for you.

Casita Laurita was the perfect place for our short getaway!! Laura has the space decorated beautifully and has thought through all of her guests possible needs. The beach is a short walk down the street as well as a market and several restaurants and shops. There was plenty of parking on the street and Laura was happy to answer any questions or offer suggestions of where to go for things. We will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Hi there and thanks for the kind review. You were such a quiet guest that I barely knew you were here! So many of my visitors are just here for nothing more than a quiet getaway so I'm glad that Casita Laurita lived up to your expectation in every respect - always my ultimate goal. I hope you guys will find your way back here again soon! You will always be welcome.

Very lovely studio in the heart of San Clemente. Just a short walk to the beach and town. Studio is decorated very nicely, and is clean and cozy. Love the Mexican tile through out , and the French doors leading to patio. Very quiet, peaceful, quaint little neighborhood. Laura is definitely the host'est with the most'est! She has paid attention to every detail. Studio has everything you could need, but if there is something you could use that isn't supplied, Laura will do her best to accommodate you. Sweetheart of a lady, Thank You Laura!!

Owner's Response: You guys were such terrific guests. I enjoyed so much having you around and even miss you. Yes! It sounds like you arrived home safely and are back to work. I hope your little respite at Casita Laurita rejuvenated you somewhat because, after all, that's the point of a vacay. I'm happy that you appreciate my enthusiasm for accommodating my guests and that is apparent that I really do enjoy this little business of mine. Comments like yours will keep me at it for many years to come. Please come back again. And bring me some more grapefruit:)

Our Wedding/Honeymoon Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the joy and privilege of staying at Casita Laurita during our visit to California for our wedding/honeymoon. We arrived late and when we walked into our room we had a lovely bottle of wine and treats with a note welcoming us. Laura doesn't miss a thing. Since we arrived so late she had a plate in the refrigerator with all the fixings for a breakfast for us the next morning. We felt so special and so welcomed. The Casita was extremely clean and decorated so nicely and very cozy and relaxing for our needs. It's a great location for a walk to the beach and local shopping. A very quiet area too with a lovely patio out front to sit and enjoy a glass of wine.

We fell in love with Laura. On our wedding day she played romantic music for us while she took some pre wedding photos of us before our departure for Laguna Beach.

Overall, it was a wonderful stay and we have fabulous memories of our wedding and our stay at Casita Laurita. Thank you Laura for being a part of our special day! And thank you for being a wonderful host! It was a pleasure.

Owner's Response: What can I say about my new best friends, the Lovebirds? Seriously, it was pure joy and my pleasure to have you stay at Casita Laurita for so many important occasions: Christmas, your wedding, honeymoon and your new adventure. You were stellar guests! I am so appreciative of your kind words about CL and me:) and hope that you might consider a one year anniversary celebration back here in December. Won't that be fun? Thanks again and let's stay in touch as we promised...

Relaxation at it's BEST!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at Casita Laurita for a week while on a work assignment in San Clemente. If you are a worker bee like me this is the place for you! It is so quiet in Laura's quaint neighborhood, you can work without any interruptions and get the best night sleep in preparation for the next work day. The Casita has everything you could ever need and downtown is close with numerous restaurants/bars and little speciality shops. The beach is just down the street and the sunsets are awesome. Laura is an excellent hostess and eager to make your stay relaxing. Oh, and did I mention, the bed is like sleeping on clouds! Thank you Laura!!!

San Clemente, known as the 'Spanish Village by the Sea, is a charming Mediterranean style beach resort perfectly tucked away halfway between San Diego and Los Angeles. San Clemente is famous for our surfing spots, T-Street and Trestles and nearby Salt Creek.

Historic Avenida Del Mar, the quaint downtown district, has an eclectic mixture of restaurants to choose from - Classic American, huge portions NOTE: yes doggie bags and sharing is perfectly acceptable!, Thai, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Mediterranean, Vietnamese, Tea Rooms,etc. Wine bars and other pubs are all within walking distance from Casita Laurita. Downtown hosts a monthly Village Art Fair, a Sunday Farmer's Market and specialty shops to keep you busy all day.

If you want to venture away from town, we are close to everything! Take a drive on the Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 101) driving north along the beautiful coastline, in minutes you'll be at Dana Point Yacht Harbor, then the popular Art Colony of Laguna Beach, Balboa Island and Newport Beach. Further on, but less than an hour to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Huntington Beach (Surf City U.S.A.) and just a little further to Hollywood, LAX, Universal Studios.

If you head south from SC, visit beautiful San Diego and it's surroundings, La Jolla and other beach towns along the coast. About one hour east is Temecula Wine Country, Old Town Julian, also a little over an hour away in the mountains.

Remember this song? - 26 miles across the sea....Santa Catalina is waiting you! Catch the early morning Catalina Express from Dana Point and in 1.5 hours you are in another southern California treasure. The 5 pm ferry should get you back to San Clemente in time to unwind at our popular Fishermans Restaurant and bar on the pier, to watch the sunset, enjoy a cocktail and share stories of an unforgettable holiday on the California Riviera.

WEATHER IN SAN CLEMENTE: Warmest in July/August with average temp of 76F (25C). December/January is coolest at 47F (8C)
