Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in San Clemente - Escalones Beach House

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, Beach House

…steps to the sand & beach trail

…beach gear: surfboards, body boards, etc.

…well appointed kitchen, laundry, 3 bed / 2 bath

…hot tub, bbq, wireless, parking

...Check out our brand new apartment VRBO #597970 on back property which can be booked together with a discount for larger parties or privacy.

This charming beach getaway is just a 100-yard stroll to the sand, and it comes with all the beach toys, including surfboards, body boards, chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc. Plus, it is uniquely positioned just steps away from our 3.5 mile beach trail. No more loading the car with beach gear, and no more renting equipment and searching for a parking space, ‘cause you are at the beach! After a beach day, enjoy a cocktail on your deck, or soak in the hot tub on the patio. From here, it’s also an easy 10-minute walk to Fisherman’s restaurant in the pier bowl area, or to T-street beach, or to San Clemente’s quaint downtown for shopping and restaurants. World-class surfing at Trestles and San-O is a 10-minute drive south.

Accommodations

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located in a tranquil neighborhood, perfect for sleep-ins and peaceful evenings. Make yourselves at home sunbathing on your private deck, or entertain friends and family while bbq-ing or jacuzzing on your secluded patio. It is the essence of San Clemente beach, with bamboo flooring, palm trees, ocean breezes, and a free-flowing, indoor-outdoor atmosphere. It invites you to lounge outdoors on the deck, or relax inside on the leather sofas while watching a movie on the high-definition flat screen TV with surround sound and fully-loaded on demand options. The open and fully equipped kitchen offers bar-style eating or sit-down dining, with a direct view of your friends on the deck, or of the flat screen inside if you choose. Enjoy the wireless internet throughout, as well as centralized heating. In the master bedroom, sleep tight on your king-sized bed with an attached bath, or wander to the hot tub with direct access from this bedroom. All 3 bedrooms sleep 2 people each, with room for 2 more people. Each bedroom has its own high-def, flat screen TV with on demand, a ceiling fan and plenty of storage. Additionally, complimentary laundry facilities for your use only are located in the garage below. And, there’s parking for 3 cars directly in front.

About Bob Rountree

I moved to San Clemente in 1972 as a young boy and grew up in this beautiful sleepy little beach town. I love that San Clemente has maintained many of its great qualities as it has become very popular as a beach destination. I love the small town feel of it and its great beaches. I realized a dream when this property became available to me and allowed me to get this close to the water. I look forward to sharing that blessing with others while staying here.

Bob Rountree purchased this house in 2002

Why Bob Rountree chose San Clemente

This property is uniquely located close to everything, most importantly the beach and beach trail access. It has a very comfortable and open layout that captures the beach lifestyle and weather. Smelling the ocean and feeling the breeze on a daily basis is wonderful. If you are looking to take advantage of beautiful San Clemente and what it has to offer, you are in the heart of it here.

Perfect place to relax with friends

  • 5 of 5

This place is immaculately clean! We have everything we needed plus a hot tub. My wife and our friends had a great time walking to the beach and downtown. We plan to come back anytime soon.

Perfect Family Week

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beach house was perfect. I have teenage children and they especially loved how close it is to the beach and all the amenities that came with the house. Bob was there within a few minutes of our arriving to great us and make sure everything was ok and ready for us. I loved that I didn't have to worry about packing all the beach stuff. There were plenty of beach towels, boards, paddle boards, surfboards, chairs and even wet suits. The kids really loved that after a great long day at the beach we could all come back, hose off and relax in the hot tub. We ate breakfast every morning on the deck and relaxed with movies and games at night. The town is close and so quaint. We have tried other beach houses and this was by far the best for us. We will for sure be back!

Great owner, neighbors, and beach gear!

  • 5 of 5

Bob was so nice and laid back. The beach house was 4 houses away from the beach! That was the best part! His neighbors were friendly and the house was very clean and airy. There was nothing more we could have wanted. He covered every base! Directv, surround sound, TVs in every room, a hot tub, outdoor balcony dining, and he had a TON of beach gear! He even brought us the extra SUPs, surfboards, and boogie boards from his other property for us to use! This place will be the one I use from now on. I can't say enough good things!

Sun, surf, and sand in southern California!

  • 5 of 5

Great location that is very close to a relaxed beach/pier and provides lots of beach gear in the garage to take to the water, from surf boards and wetsuits to chairs and coolers. The water can be seen from the front of the house, which was reasonably equipped for our brief stay. Everything was clean and appeared well maintained. The living room was comfortable with a nice sectional couch and the bedrooms were nicely appointed with Direct TV, ceilings fans, and comfortable beds although we only used the master. The hot tub was a welcome amenity as well.

The owner was available for any questions we had as well leaving some welcoming items in the house. He is easy going but interested in helping out as much as possible with things like local places to visit or restaurants to eat at. Speaking of restaurants, sunset at the Fisherman's Restaurant on the pier is a must. The only other thing to note is that there is a bit of a climb up from the beach so people with mobility issues should be mindful. I would definitely recommend this property to others.
