Welcome to Big Fish! This San Clemente vacation rental is one of two units, Big Fish and Sand and Sea, located together in the same building. These brand new beachside luxury condos are nested atop San Clemente’s Pier Bowl with 360 degree views from Seal Rock to San Clemente’s famous pier and clock tower. We named Big Fish and its sister property, Sand and Sea, to reflect the enchantment and wonder of the perfect stay by the sea – and you’ll enjoy that perfect vacation here! Big Fish has gorgeous, non-stop views of the Pacific ocean, from the sparkle of morning sun on the water to the brilliant blaze of the sunset glowing behind Catalina Island.

The proximity to the beach and pier makes for some truly inspiring beach views and sunsets from the first floor living room and balcony, and even more incredible panoramic vistas from the second floor kitchen, dining room, living room, master suite and spacious patio.

Big Fish is located less than 500 feet from the beach, pier, and San Clemente Pedestrian beach trail. Each morning you can take a 1 minute walk and decide whether to get your toes sandy, take a morning dip or have a yummy breakfast on the pier. If in the mood for a light breakfast, some of San Clemente’s best coffee houses are steps from your front door. Enjoy strolling down to the pier and quaint local pier area shops and restaurants like Bear Coast Coffee, Fisherman’s Restaurant and La Galette Creperie.
Take a short walk up Del Mar to our Sunday Farmer's Market & Local shops, watch for dolphins as you walk along our beach trail, or just enjoy watching San Clemente's famous surf culture at Tstreet beach or the pier. Some of our nation's most celebrated surfers reside in SC & surf our beaches.

At Big Fish the perfect location and the perfect view are enhanced by the effortless elegance and style of the vacation rental itself. This luxury San Clemente vacation rental condo has been completely remodeled with great attention to detail. Decorated in a modern organic style, Big Fish features many custom pieces including reclaimed wood mirror frames, gorgeous glass doorknobs, driftwood front door handles, beautiful designer tile, waterfall marble kitchen slabs and original San Clemente artwork by local artist Geoff Glenn. Take in all that San Clemente has to offer, then in the evenings, unwind on our decks and watch the sunset as the surfers enjoy their last waves. 
Each bedroom is furnished with sumptuous bedding. You’ll sink into the smooth sheets, closing your eyes to the sound of the waves and blissfully opening them each morning to the view of the sun sparkling on the ocean.

Also included with your reservation is **VIP GUEST LOUNGE PASS FOR OUTLETS AT SAN CLEMENTE ** See below for details.

Beautiful property, views of ocean and easy walk to beach, restaurants

Family really enjoyed San Clemente. Smaller than other beach communities, yet easy access to entertainment, experiences, destinations we were interested in. This property is a big "WOW!" Clean, comfortable beds in size/s desired for my family, great living/dining w/adjoining deck for BBQ grill, eating and sitting area with great ocean view. Elise was very professional, provided a warm welcome and showed us through property--where and how to access entry, beach toys, etc. Got to meet Desiree, the owner, who was planting plants and was immediately responsive to phone call made concerning deck folding doors scraping threshold. We were very impressed with the condo, professionalism of all. Property, I believe, looked new, fresh with well appointed furnishings, accessories. The best property we have ever rented. I would highly recommend to others.
