The Garden Cottage was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Bill and Sandra are very personable and provided such wonderful customer service. The grounds at the Garden Cottage are beautiful, and is centrally located to everywhere in San Clemente, while still providing the quiet atmosphere. The breakfast each day was excellent. We had the ability to eat our breakfast... More

Bill and Sandra offer two accommodations centered around a courtyard - a cottage and a 'honeymoon suite' which is where we stayed. Our room(s) had a four poster bed with sumptuous linens, a fireplace, a spa tub, and a private sitting area. Bill has a talent for Espalier and the gardens are incredible. Every morning, we received a full coffee... More

Just spent a couple of days at this wonderful B & B. Elegant and spacious suite with generous gourmet breakfast . Extraordinary gardens throughout the property. The owners Bill and Sandra were gracious and very welcoming. A very beautiful and relaxing place.

Sandra and Bill have a most beautiful little place and take great care to make their guests happy. They were kind, helpful, and went the extra mile to make us feel welcomed and give us everything we needed (and then some). Their gardens are gorgeous and serene, the guest room is large, quite comfortable and so pretty, and everything was... More

My husband and I live nearby in Laguna Beach, but just needed to get away from the craziness of life. We could not have picked a better place, it was like we were hundreds of miles away, not minutes from home. The accomodations were awesome and the food and hospitality was second to none. The gardens were just beautiful and... More

First of all, whatever I say in this review will never be enough of a compliment! This little gem is big on comfort, service, beauty, colour, peace and two great big hearts who keep this beauty feel like family and home from home in the best sense!

It was a wonderful place to unwind for a short get away. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast was fresh and served outdoors in the lovely garden setting. The owners were accommodating. The beach is just blocks away, accessed by walking. I would return. Delightful!
