It's called the penthouse for a reason! This beautiful condo has a very "on top of the world" feel - a little urban, very modern, and a sense of being away from it all even though we were right in the middle of San Clemente. I guess it was being up so high, with that beautiful view down toward the pier that did it! Very peaceful, very serene, very private. I loved ever minute of it. This condo is really well located, less than a block from the beginning of downtown and just a few blocks to the pier. San Clemente is one of my favorite places to visit in SoCal, very laid back and welcoming. I've stayed with Beachside in San Clemente before and I've always enjoyed it. The vacation rental was also absolutely pristine. It's obviously new, and obviously professionally designed. I wouldn't mind letting whoever decorated this property try their hand at redecorating my house. If you visit I would definitely recommend Nick's San Clemente. It is so good, and less than a block away. My husband and I are also personally fans of Pizza Port, and of course Fisherman's on the Pier. Maybe Fisherman's seems like a touristy place to visit... but I don't think so. Visit Fisherman's Oyster bar for a more casual dining experience and some really REALLY good oysters. Seriously... I don't even like oysters, but those were some good oysters.
