    Getting there

    Right off the El Camino Real exit from Interstate 5 Freeway.  Alternately at the Southern end of the Pacific Coast Highway.  Two train station stops also available via either the Amtrak Sufrliner or Metrolink trains.  Approximately 1/2 hour from John Wayne/Santa Ana airport; 1 hour from San Diego Airport and 1.25 hours from LAX.

    Walking and biking around town will get you anywhere you need however a car can help get you to Dana Point Harbor, Disneyland, and surf spots farther afield.


    We just got back from this lovely house in the fun, seaside town of San Clemente. Spotlessly clean upon arrival, it has a beautiful kitchen, clean lines, lovely wood floors. The outside has a shower, new hot tub and a wonderful back patio for enjoying the perfect Southern California weather. This a fantastic beach house to stay in. The owners were friendly and very helpful, leaving us beach gear and towels for our beach times. I highly recommend both this house and these exchangers!
