Interaction with Guests
I like to know when my guests check in and are happy with what they find, so if I am not able to be there to greet you, a quick text of phone call is appreciated! I like you to feel that this is your home away from home so I usually keep contact to a minimum but I am always available for you any time if you have any questions or concerns.
Please let me know when you leave!!
Our neighborhood is located in the "pier bowl". When you walk out onto the pier and look back at the land you will see the housing is situated on the hills in a kind of bowl shape. It's a very unique part of San Clemente!
A metrolink station is by the pier to take you to points north and south.
There are restaurants and shops and a couple of convenience stores within walking distance. The closest market is Ralph's and is just a short drive from the condo.
No pets per HOAs. No smoking in the condo or balcony. Consideration for other tenants and the neighborhood is paramount! This is a quiet building. No parties or extra overnight guests. Strict adherence to pool rools expected. There is a binder in the condo that has the condo rules for using the common areas and should answer any questions you might have.
We had a great time staying at the Casita Clemente! Barbara was very helpful, as we are from New Jersey and we had NO idea where to begin navigating in CA. We loved San Clemente and when we were there we met WeeMan in one of the local surf shops! The home was beautiful and we loved being walking distance to the crepe breakfast place (cash only!) and the pier!
This was our first Airbnb and we are so happy we chose Barbara and her beautiful condo. The location was perfect and close to everything we wanted to see during our trip to Southern California. Disneyland was just a quick half hour drive away and the local beaches are breathtaking.
I have MS so the handy elevator and secure parking was a life saver. Our six year old daughter (and us) did not want to leave!
It was fantastic. Close to pier. Amenities were great, snacks, wine. Very thoughtful.
Barbara is an excellent and thoughtful host. We certainly enjoyed our time at Casita Clemente. Her condo is well furnished and taken care of. Barbara also provides great restaurant recommendations, menus, along with a rich history of the San Clemente area. Very nice ocean views and a balcony to take in the beauty of the area. Great for two people, three is certainly doable but a bit crowded. Secure off street parking was also appreciated. My wife and I recommend Casita Clemente and would check its availability next time we visit southern California.
Being a native of Los Angeles, I was looking forward to a relaxing two month get away (I'm now living in Phoenix, AZ). I was familiar with Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo beaches but not San Clemente. What a wonderful community. I received a nice welcome from Barbara with wine, chips/salsa, breakfast items, a fruit basket and all the condiments needed for my stay.....along with a fully equipped kitchen.
I loved the condo and everything needed was at my fingertips including the beach items in the storage cabinet. What a wonderful view of the ocean (the sunsets are fantastic!). Even though a safe area, it was nice having the enclosed garage and not having to search for a parking place.
I was lucky to meet and have lunch with Barbara at the end of my stay. What a wonderful host. Anything I needed during my stay, Barbara was there to take care of it.
If I'm back in the area again I won't hesitate staying here again. Only thing I'd change........coming in the summer with California's wonderful summer sun!
Thanks Barbara for a wonderful stay!
