San Clemente Beach House Close To Downtown & Pier

Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in San Clemente - San Clemente 'Rosa House'

Beach House With Pool & Spa, Close To Beach & Downtown

The Rosa House is the perfect place to experience the southern California beach vacation in style. This is a classically remodeled and decorated, single-story beach house with 2 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1,400 square feet of living space, a beautiful private pool, and hot tub. The Rosa House is nestled in the heart of San Clemente, the “Village by the Sea”, which is arguably southern California’s quaintest beach town. Peak a boo views of the ocean and surrounding hills are seen from the two-car driveway and gated front courtyard and pool area. The San Clemente Pier and T-Street, known for beautiful wide sand beaches and excellent surf, are less than a half-mile and within easy walking distance. Speaking of surfing, world-famous breaks San Onofre and Trestles are less than 5 miles from the front door, as are numerous other reef and beach breaks. The local surf breaks provide suitable waves for the full range of skill levels, from beginner to advanced.

Worried about finding taxis or a designated driver around dinner time? Don’t!!! The Rosa House is only 100 yards from widely renowned Del Mar Avenue and El Camino Real, and easily within “stumbling distance” of dozens of exceptional restaurants, cafes, cantinas, and taverns. Do the girls like short walks to quaint boutiques, antique stores, art galleries, specialty shops, salons, and day spas? You are in luck, just walk over to Del Mar Ave., which is also home to the weekly farmer’s market (Sunday) and monthly events including art shows, live music, and classic car shows. Even the local Starbuck’s, grocery store, and library are a short walk from the perfectly situated Rosa House.

Entry to the Rosa House is made through a custom wood and iron gate. The front wall with stacked stone pillars provides privacy to the front courtyard, which is blasted with full sun throughout the day, warming the freeform, pebbletec finished pool to a pleasant temperature from early May to late October. This is a great sunbathing area furnished with recliners and chairs in full sun and shade areas. Getting hot? Take a dip! Past the pool, the front porch and door open to the large living room with comfortable couches (and sleeper futon), cozy fireplace, 37” flat screen TV, and plush carpeting. The dining area has an antique oak table and chairs, and leads to the updated, fully equipped kitchen with newer appliances, dishwasher, and large refrigerator. The laundry room is off the kitchen, and features free washer, dryer, and detergent.

The huge master suite features skylights, walk-in closet, spacious private bath with dual shower heads, comfortable queen bed, built-in oak shelving,and TV. French doors open to the rear deck and a luxurious Hot Springs spa that is always hot and ready for a dip. The second bedroom is very private and features a comfortable full bed, dresser, mirrored wardrobe closet, and full private bath.

This place is plush! Special amenities include central heating and air conditioning, gas barbeque grill, cable TV, DVD, stereo system with wall-mounted speakers, and wi-fi internet. The house is family friendly, complete with a pack and play, swimmer diapers, and plenty of toys. Beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, cooler, boogie boards, and a soft-top surfboard are at your disposal. For child safety, a 4 feet-high fence and self-closing, locking gate has been installed around the pool. Potty-trained pets are also welcome.

The laundry room and pool are shared with our tenant in the studio apartment at the front of the property. The apartment has a separate entrance from the main house and is separated by the laundry room and deadbolt doors.

If you want to venture out of town, Dana Point Harbor and Laguna Beach are just up the coast. Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Lego Land, and Sea World are within an hour or less, and Hollywood and downtown San Diego are just a bit further. If you do not feel like driving, you can ride the train, which stops at the pier and many other places up and down the coast.

Why Mark and Martha Heinaman chose San Clemente

Location, location, location! This place is close to everything, and it is very pleasant, open and light, yet well-screened and private

What makes this house unique

Very few vacation homes can compete with the combination of great location (walking distance to everything), quality of design, and excellent overall condition and amenities for such a reasonable price. Plus, there is the private pool and spa. How can you beat that?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Vacation Home

Guest Chip (Florida) Date of stay 07/01/12 Review Submitted 07/23/12

This Home was just right for our family vacation!

The master bedroon and bathroom was spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with any and all appliances needed. The convinience of a washer and drier, movies to watch, the pool and yakuzee were also a plus!

It is located near restaurants, shopping and the pier... Pieceful but in the middle of everything.

The owners were very friendly and helpful! There was even a welcome note from them and a list of restaurants and helpfull things to know while our stay there!

We highly recomend this for your next vacation!! :)

Clean, comfortable, well-maintained house for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Rosa House! The kitchen was well-stocked for cooking in, and the house is conveniently located to downtown for walking to restaurants and shops. The pool was a little chilly for swimming in December, but it was wonderful sitting in the sun next to the pool. We used the hot tub every day and there was a perfect little area for our dog to do his thing outside. Mark and Martha were very nice and quick to respond to any questions.

Tranquil Oasis in Downtown San Clemente

  • 4 of 5

We stayed five nights over Thanksgiving at this lovely house in downtown San Clemente. The pool and house feel secluded because of the high hedges and walls enclosing the property. The area is quiet. The home is beautifully appointed: very large master bedroom with en suite bathroom, lots of light from French doors; nice living and dining area; a second small bedroom with trundle beds suitable for kids and younger teens; and washer dryer. Everything is well-maintained. All the restaurants and shops are within walking distance and the ocean is close for active walkers. We plan to stay at Rosa House again. The owners are super responsive. We had a great time. Thank you Mark and Martha.

This is by far the best rental we have stayed in. Communication with the owners was top notch. The rental was spotless and the amenities were a plus. We were so close to town we walked there everyday for shopping, coffee or meals. Such quaint shopping and I would give the restaurants rave reviews. We did walk to the beach too. This is thePERFECT spot if visiting the San Clemente area!!!!The pool and jacuzzi were an added plus. We will definitely be back.

Rosa House

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Rosa House for our first trip to San Clemente and we were very impressed. The accommodations exceeded expectations and truly enhanced our visit to southern California. The house was super clean, comfortable and stocked with everything you may need, just like home. Our grandchildren, age 2 and 8, really enjoyed the pool (the grownups did too). This is a wonderful place to stay and we hope to return in the future.

Great family time!

  • 5 of 5

I booked few days at the Rosa House to spend quality time with my sisters and our mom. It was super clean, organized, well stocked, well decorated, and in a great location. The house is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants, a quick drive to the beach, and very close to other beach towns. Mark and Martha are extremely helpful and accommodating! Anything you need, they are there for you. Great people to deal with. Perfect place!
