About Diane

We currently live in Orange County and are both transplants from the east. We have been going to San Clemente for 30 years and took our children there when they were young. We are thrilled to have a property here and look forward to many years of good times there with friends and family. We hope you will share our feelings!

Diane purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Diane chose Orange County

We love this property because it is so close to the water and the trail. We love going to Fisherman's for the sunset and happy hour! After their chicken with beans and coleslaw, there is no need to cook dinner! We also love Nick's just about any time and Velvet Yogurt (Happy Hour 3-5 on Mon. and Fri.). This is a friendly town with many unique shops and restaurants. I often feel like I have stepped back in time when I am here...

What makes this townhome unique

We fell in love with this property because the possibilities are endless. It suits both young and old. When children visit it is a short walk to Linda Lane Park. They can take the train to the San Diego Zoo. We can ride beach bikes on the trail and meet friends for lunch in Laguna or Dana Point. We can walk to the train and go to San Diego or spend the day at the races in Del Mar. We can take the train to LA. Most desirable to me is walking to the sand and listing to the waves with my morning coffee. I love sitting in front of the fireplace with an ocean view and knowing that all these activities are available when I feel like them.

A short walk to the beach. :)

  • 5 of 5

We loved spending a week in San Clemente with our 2 young children and our pet golen-doodle, Hurley. The place was warm and inviting. Diane was a saint of a host, even leaving cookies and a bottle of wine on the table to greet our arrival. The garage is stocked with beach toys. The beds were comfortable. You can even see the ocean from the front deck (where I spent most of my time). Looking forward to coming back sometime soon. Thanks for such a great place to stay!

Everything about this cute place is wonderful.

The location, the view, the decorating, and most of all the manager Diane. She provided such great customer service and made our stay so comfortable...

All of us were so thrilled that we didn't "rent a hotel room" this trip.

There were 5 of us in town for the Doheny Blues Festival and we hope to return again for that event. We will definitely plan ahead and try to secure this property. Hopefully we will stay longer next time.

If you are looking for "everything and then some" don't hesitate to stay here.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's first experience with VRBO, and we could not be more pleased with our stay at this beautiful condo. Diane thought of absolutely everything--the furnishings are gorgeous and comfortable, plenty of towels and beach toys, and even a lovely card and wine waiting on the table upon our arrival! The water, juice, bread, and fruit was a thoughtful touch, and aside from a trip to the nearby grocery, we didn't need a thing during our stay. The location is perfect--easy walk to the beach, charming residential area, and close to shops and restaurants. Easy for us to get to both San Diego and Anaheim, so it was a fantastic place to call home for a few days. It was almost painful to pull out of the driveway and head home--I will miss the view and morning coffee on the deck. We can't wait for the chance to return, and will highly recommend the property to friends who may visit the area. Thank you so much!

Our home in San Clemente

  • 5 of 5

We just loved our Stay at this property.We stayed there for thirteen nights and I would have loved to stay longer.The location is perfect;very close to the beach and close to amenities like restaurant,markets etc. The house was very clean and in perfect conditions. We love to cook when we travel and the kitchen was perfect for us.Diane and her husband ,the owners, did everything possible to make us feel at home. San Clemente is a great place to stay in California. It has that small beach town atmosphere but is located next to many important Californian citys and attractions. Next time I travel to California I will definitely like to spend some more days in this property.

Darling place close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at this adorable place near the Pier Bowl of San Clemente. The decor and furnishings were top notch. There is nothing Diane has forgotten is this great rental! The towels and bedding were soft and luxurious and the mattresses were divine. The kitchen was stocked with condiments, cooking oils and bottled water in the fridge. There was even tylenol, toothpaste and q-tips in the medicine cabinet! The Wifi worked perfectly. It was a short walk down to the beach where there is a great walking path right along the ocean. The walk back gives you a great workout since it is mostly uphill. I needed the extra workout because of all the delicious restaurants within walking distance to this great place! It was nice to have the gas logs in the fireplace since we were there at Christmas and it got chilly at night. We travel to San Clemente every two years and we look forward to coming back to this wonderful gem of a place. Thanks, Diane, for the welcome bottle of wine and the yummy chocolates. We use VRBO frequently and this was one of the nicest places we have found. We had a wonderful holiday week in this beautiful condo!
