Garden Cottage at the Green B&B
Ranked #4 of 7 San Clemente B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 17, 2011

My husband and I had a lovely stay at the Garden Cottage. We needed a quiet restful place to recuperate. This was the perfect spot. It was private and cozy and nestled in a beautiful English garden across from a golf course.The owners are exceptionally hospitable and friendly while allowing you privacy and peace. It was very clean and had everything you might want or need to make your stay comfortable. Like a home away from home.

If you love ambience, attention to detail, charming, delightful surroundings, you're in for a treat. The owners are pretty special too!

What an amazing way to spend the night of our wedding, and wake up our first morning as husband and wife. The bridal party, family and friends prepped for the wedding, and we have the most beautiful pictures. The gardens are so beautiful, they seem unreal. Sandra and Bill are so sweet and accommodating. Our amazing breakfast on the patio was cooked by a family friend from Italy (what an extra special treat!) The experience was so wonderful, we didn't want to leave. We plan on spending our anniversary every year here!

I stayed here with my husband for a much needed weekend together and we had a most relaxing time at this little quiet B&B tucked away at south end of San Clemente. The owners are so warm, accommodating and attentive. The cottage is charming and beautifully appointed with many nice amenities and .... the gardens are out of this world....so beautiful to sit and relax in. This is a very serene and tranquil place and I recommend it to anyone needing to unwind, refresh and regroup. For us, it was so nice being the only guests and having the place to ourselves to take time out for ourselves.

I stayed here with my daughter for her 11th birthday and we had a great time! The owners were very warm, friendly and enjoyable and gave us plenty of space to enjoy the grounds. They were also very helpful with places to eat and visit. From inside the property, there is nothing but beautiful views. From the balcony you so the beautiful knot garden and the calming patio, and from the bedroom all you can see is the rolling hills of the golfing greens.
It has everything you need. A great kitchen stocked with a few snacks, comfy sitting areas, and 2 stories, which is fun. It is just like a tiny house so it seems very magical. I can't wait to come back again with my husband and enjoy a good conversation and a glass of wine on the balcony.

My husband and I chose The Garden Cottage at the Green for our wedding ceremony and reception. We were in search of someplace that offered a peaceful, elegant, romantic and european feeling. The grounds / gardens are absolutely beautiful and well kept. The inside of the house is full of beautiful textiles and decorations and the cottage is romantic, comfy and very clean. The surroundings are quiet with a gentle sound of a fountain that just sets the mood perfectly along with white twinkle lights in the trees.

Bill and Sandra Jensen are so amazing and treat everyone like family. Because our wedding was held at the Bed & Breakfast, they were not only warm and welcoming hosts, but they assisted in anything we needed help with in preparing for our wedding day. Our guests are still talking about our wedding. People who did not attend the wedding, but have seen photos ask, "Where is the venue?"

We plan to celebrate our 1 year anniversary here. We will have wonderful memories of our wedding day for the rest of our lives. Thank you Bill and Sandra for your hospitality and for making our wedding day a day we will never ever forget. We are so grateful to have found such a perfect location for our wedding and we are happy to have found a friendship with you as well. Merci Beaucoup!

We really found an oasis of calm in the middle of a wedding rehearsal and ceremony for which we were the musicians. Garden Cottage was just what we needed, a hide-away from all of it! The hosts were gracious in accommodating all of our specific needs including some unique requests from members of our family. The breakfasts were a work of art and the last morning our "to go box" for our 20-hour road trip was the only bright light in the long, long day.

I would strongly recommend The Garden Cottage at the Green for respite and renewal in beautiful San Clemente.
