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.

Beach toys

Wander down to the beach for some great surf, or to Fisherman’s restaurant on the pier for dinner or sunset cocktails. Or, enjoy our beach trail on bike or on foot. Also, at low tide check out our tide pools, with starfish, sea anemones and muscles. Or, spend hours hunting for sea glass.

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 Orange County

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.

excellent

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this rental and will return in a heart beat. The house was very clean, the kitchen well equipped and for the first time in a beach rental, the pans were all in decent usable condition. There were seven of us and everyone was happy here and hated leaving. Thank you Bob for sharing your home with us.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation and the house was great. Had everything we needed and walking distance to the beach. We could even see the 4th of July fireworks from the front deck. Bob was great and even had coffe and cream in the fridge when we got there. Lots of great restaurants within walking distance and easy to get to Disney, San Diego and other places! Highly recommend this place!

Gorgeous home, even better location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely wonderful! Bob worked with us when we had some flight delays that meant we would arrive at the house later than planned. When we showed up, the house was GREAT. The pictures do not do it justice. All three rooms were large and very comfortable. The kitchen, living room, and front patio area were very relaxing. The best part was how close it was to the beach and the walking trails. You literally walk right down the street to the beach access. Speaking of the beach, the beach toys that Bob has in the house are perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy the water! It was an awesome perk to have those included. Parking was easy too!

Beautiful, well maintained and fully stocked.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in San Clemente at this property - it was clean, spacious, well maintained and came with a fully stocked kitchen. The owner was also very helpful. It is just a few minutes walk down to one of the beaches and a further 15 minutes to the main beach. Beautiful SoCal seaside town, friendly neighbourhood.
