Private bedroom and full bathroom in our hilltop beach home. Relax in our scenic backyard and enjoy the gorgeous canyon and ocean vistas. Only a few minutes to the beach and downtown. After your day of work or play, unwind in quietude and capture stunning sunsets. Owners on-site to answer any questions or for local information. Netflix and Apple TV in family room.

The space

Our home is very clean, uncluttered, and comfortable. Your private room has a queen bed with higher end linens. Your private full bath comes with resort style towels, and we start your stay off with a roll of toilet paper and bar of soap. Additional supplies are the responsibility of the guest.

In addition to your bedroom and bathroom, you can access our den/tv room with fireplace, our front living room and dining room, and our kitchen with new appliances. We simply ask guests to not enter the master bedroom or the home office.

We have a large back patio with several seating areas. This is the most popular space. Our guests enjoy eating meals and taking in the beautiful views of open space canyon and sunsets over Catalina Island and Dana Point Harbor.

Our yoga/meditation room, with a balcony is right across the hall from your private room - a great place to stretch, relax, or exercise. Yoga DVDs available with a flat screen tv.

Cool ocean breezes pass through providing fresh air and comfortable temperatures year round. Sounds of nature abound - with birds chirping, rabbits hopping about, and the occasional coyote howling. If you're lucky, you'll site a deer. It's our little haven in the heart of Orange County.

Guest access

In addition to your private bedroom and bathroom, guests can access our yoga/meditation room, downstairs living space (kitchen, family room, living room and dining room. And, of course, our lovely back patio. We just ask guests to not access the master bedroom or the home office.

Laundry room available with host supervision - $4 fee per load (includes washer, dryer, detergents, and fabric softener). cash only

We have an array of beach gear that you are welcome to borrow free of charge during your stay. Chairs, towels, umbrellas, coolers, body boards, soft top surfboard, paddle ball, etc. For experienced surfers, we can discuss borrowing our hard boards.

In the home we have many DVDs, board games, a ping pong table, and a dart board. These are all at your disposal as well.

Interaction with guests

We keep very busy and come and go frequently during the day. In the evenings, you will have as much or little interaction with us as you like. At this time of evening you'll find us watching Netflix movies in the family room, or sitting in the back patio with a glass of wine. You're always free to join us or retreat to the privacy of your room. We are open to shared evening meals, and use the barbecue often. Just let us know your preferences, and we will accommodate them.

Loved the views, the convenient location and the coziness of Mary & David's home. The bed was super comfy as well! We had the opportunity to meet Mary and David when we arrived - both were super friendly and helpful with some tips on local things to see and places to eat. We were in town for a music festival, so our stay was short, but definitely would love to visit again!

Mary and David were awesome hosts. My boyfriend is from the area and they were able to make many suggestions that even he didn't know about. Nomads was a great little local spot for snacks and a great local beer selection. The house is spotlessly clean and they left out great coffee in the morning. My favorite part of the trip, outside of the beach, was enjoying morning coffee on the back patio because the view was amazing! My only complaint is that I could not stay longer.

Mary and David were so kind and accommodating to my husband and I! We were sad to leave. We enjoyed their company and their beautiful home! The view from their patio is even more spectacular in person! If we are ever in San Clemente again we would definitely try to stay with them again! Thank you Mary and David for being amazing hosts!
