About Forrest Walson

My wife, Melinda, and I grew up in southern California. We both lived a distance from the beach but would visit as much as possible. We both love the feeling of the ocean. Last year we were lucky enough to rent this exact condominium. The moment we walked in it felt like home. Right then and there we decided San Clemente was where we hoped to retire someday. Luckily for us the owner called and asked if we would be interested in buying this property. We were ecstatic...

Forrest Walson purchased this condo in 2014

Why Forrest Walson chose San Clemente

We purchased this property because it is absolutely ocean front with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths fully remodeled with no expense spared. The condo provides perfect sit down views of the whitewater, San Clemente Pier, Dana Point and Catalina Island. At anytime we could witness dolphins, seals and pelicans from the elevated bluff front location. Easy access to the beach and the famous San Clemente walking trail make this a must have property.

What makes this condo unique

This property offers one of the BEST VIEWS in San Clemente. It is perched on the bluff above the San Clemente walking trail, world famous surfing spots, and iconic San Clemente Pier. With a just completed glass front expanded balcony off the family room, dining room and master bedroom, you and your guests have a PERFECT location to watch the surfers below as another beautiful sunset ends another day in paradise. We hope to share our dream with you!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Walking in the front door was all it took to fall in love. All we could see was the ocean. Beautiful home with everything we could ever need or want in an ocean front condo. Thank you for leaving all your beautiful things for us to use and enjoy. Having the two parking a spots and extra guest spots makes it perfect for having guests or family visit. Booked two more months after a week. Can't wait to come back. Thanks again.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

This unit was all that I expected it to be. Great location, beautiful view and cozy deck furniture! The pictures do not dot his place justice. I will be back for another visit soon.

Bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms are spacious as well. Kitchen fully stocked did not need anything. Highly recommend this place we did not want to leave.It is a great location close to everything.

By far the Best!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year here. Next year will be our third. Enough said, right?? Pictures cannot convey the awesomeness of the condo, balcony, views. (neither can words, but I will attempt to share what we love about it)The ocean surf and breeze are priceless. Very quiet ,peaceful, and luxurious gem on the oceanfront in the beautiful laid back San Clemente. Perfect for us. Melinda and Forrest have been exceptional in all communications. Warm, friendly, and very generous and accommodating. Awesome couple. The condo is breathtaking and has everything. We loved the comfort of the furnishings, couch, bed, outdoor sofa and chairs. Sitting on the balcony watching dolphins swim by, occasional fishermen boats, a couple surfers, long boarders paddling by, and taking in the serenity of the ocean waves breaking with the breeze adding even more calming and cleansing to our heart and mind.The pelicans gliding by were ethereal and took our breath away. This is a residential area so if you are looking for a party area, this is not it. Neighbors are respectful and courteous if you happen to see them. Nothing has compared to this fabulous place in our past stays at other condos in this area and in Florida. This is the best. You don’t need to look further.

Gorgeous Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo! It is spacious with all of the comforts of home and you can see the ocean from almost every room. Forest and Melinda are so nice and friendly. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. We enjoyed the daily beach walks and watching the dolphins. The down town is a short walk with fun shops and great beach food. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the patio and watching the gorgeous sunsets with a glass of wine. What better way to end a day of activities!

Nice place, great views

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed staying here in Jan/Feb 2017. All the rooms are quite nice and comfortable. Views are amazing. Nice office area if you need to work. We didn't really need it but maybe 1 day, but there is no AC in this unit, so you need to be comfortable with ocean breezes . Great and responsive hosts.

Owner's Response: Hi Dave, Just received your review, so sorry you weren't completely happy. Yours is the first review we didn't receive 5 stars. Was it just the lack of ac? If it was something else please let us know, we strive to make everyone's experience truly remarkable. Thank you again for staying with us. Melinda & Forrest

Home on the Waves

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Walson’s beach home. We especially appreciated the home décor and furnishings and the views of the ocean were incredible! Also you are steps away from the beach walkway and the San Clemente pier. Melinda and Forrest made sure that we had everything we needed to make our stay more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend their home for your next vacation.

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking view with privacy and spacious floor plan. We spent two months in this beautiful condo and it felt like home. Kitchen and bedding were great! 15 minute walk to downtown San Clemente. 10 minute walk to SC pier, a steep climb back...but worth every step! Private parking was so convenient. Forrest and Melinda greeted us when we arrived and bid us farewell 2 months later. They are warm and friendly, and responded immediately to our requests. The best VRBO hosts we've encountered! We loved our stay, and if you're looking to rent in the San Clemente, Dana Point, or Laguna Beach area, don't look any further, book this property now!!!
