Cozy studio apartment in San Clemente with a queen size bed, huge smart tv and large couch
5 minute walk to the beach, pier, and downtown full of amazing restaurants and shops
Charming small town feel and everything within walking distance
The host is really nice an communicative. Checking in and out was super easy. I do feel the need to tell you about some stuff that we wish we would have known before booking: The location is nice if you don't mind walking up hill and down hill about 10 minutes to the pier area. …
The location is beautiful. It is very rare to find a place in such great proximity to the beach and to the downtown of San Clemente. It is a 5 minute walk to the downtown and to the top of the steps where there is a beautiful view of the beach. It is another few minutes down the steps to get to the actual beach. This is very typical for all of San Clemente; you must walk down a hill to get to the sand. I'm sorry it was so hot outside, but the weather is simply out of my control. As for the smell, my neighbor does smoke. It sometimes travels in the apartment, but the smell is hardly noticeable and it does NOT smell if you open the windows and door. However it is hot and to keep the A/C running and the apartment cool it is best to leave the windows closed. For this reason, that is why I left plenty of candles and air freshener around the apartment. I live here full time except when I travel and I have never smoked in my home. For these reasons I can honestly tell you that the smells are not as you say; it does not smell if you open the windows or light some candles, and if you don't the smell is still hardly noticeable. The shower and bathroom is old, but it is extremely clean and I have it professionally cleaned before every guest stays in my apartment. I left out plenty of spare blankets for the couch. As for the coffee machine, yes it is technically an espresso machine but it does brew coffee as well. I have plenty have fresh coffee beans and a coffee bean grinder as well. Yes, the kitchen is not a full kitchen. It is a studio apartment. There is a clear picture of the entire kitchen in my listing - microwave, hotplate, fridge and sink included. The hotplate is brand new and works just as well as a regular stove and the fridge is full size. Yes, my apartment is small (it's a studio apartment) and older (the building is from the 1960's) but I am very honest in my listing. This is a great price and location for someone who wants a relaxing weekend within walking distance to the beach, pier, shops and restaurants of San Clemente.
