I am trying to locate something small and NOT comercialized on the beach. small cottage or something to spend a few days sitting in my beach chair reading and relaxing . Does that type of thing still exist?

Not many "cottages" for rent directly on the beach. Check the TA Vacation Rentals link: tripadvisor.com/VacationRentals-g33012-Revie…

Not in Southern Cal, land costs too much. All the cute cottages have been turned into McMansions.

There is an old hotel called the Beachcomber that sits on the cliif and overlooks the pier. Never been inside, but they have a grassy area out front with a nice view.

Another option is to look at the Crystal Cove Cottages that are at Crystal Cove State Beach. Tough to get in but right on the beach.

At least the OP didn't say she had her heart set on staying in a little grass shack like you sometimes see on the Hawaii forums. There are a few bungalows for rent and a few laid back motels in the area near San Clemente.
