“Elegant, charming, quiet accommodations with gracious hosts!”
Reviewed February 23, 2011

A single suite, purpose-built for guests, Garden Cottage is a half-mile from the Pacific and 1.7 miles from the San Clemente pier with its charming restaurants and shops. If you are arriving from a distance, the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, and the Wild Animal Park are each an easy hour away to the south and east. Disneyland is a half hour to the north.

If you are into intimate seclusion, the garden outside provides the sound of water from the fountain and all-day easy-listening music. Most of our stay was spent in the sitting room and on the balcony reading and enjoying the ambience. The suite is equipped with a small kitchen and dining area. If you are not inclined to cook, there is an amazing variety of restaurants, cafes and delis nearby. If you are into golf, the property adjoins a beautiful public golf course with a wonderful restaurant (who would have thought of that?).

The host and hostess are gracious family people who introduced us to their grandchildren. We felt like part of the family.

Without overdoing it, we could not offer a higher recommendation for a charming place to stay in sunny southern California.

This cottage is behind the Inn Keeper's house. It is surrounded by gorgeous gardens, fountain, seating area. Quiet and very private. Inn Keeper, Bill, was very nice and gracious. Sandra, his wife, whom we met briefly, was also very nice and friendly.
My husband and I stay at various B&B's, so we jokingly call ourselves "B&B snobs" because we have been to outstanding ones! Even though this was a very very nice one... upon entering the cottage, it smelled a little musty. It was clean, but maybe had not been aired out in awhile (?). Also, breakfasts weren't the best. They were "okay".
One good thing to know before you go..... they only take checks or cash!! No credit cards. That information would have totally been helpful!!
It's a beautiful place to enjoy, however. There was a small cake and champagne waiting for us when we got there, and red roses on the table when we returned from dinner.
