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.
