A chance to see early San Clemente charm up close. With a sweeping view of the coast and unbelievable charm, a must see

“Absolutely Beautiful!”

A must see stop in San Clemente. The price is right too, only $5 per person to get in but the beauty and views are priceless!

“Cliff-top cultural centre and gardens in San Clemente”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2012

Once a private oceanfront home of Ole Hanson [architect and developer of the San Clemente area way back in the 1920s], this beautiful historic home and gardens are open to the public and available for rental. Built in 1927, this 5-acre estate was home to Hanson, his wife and their eight children.

The views from every window and terrace are breathtaking. This tourist stop is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The volunteer docents are so helpful and their is a 7-minute presentation to orient yourself with the basic history. Then, just suck in the Pacific Ocean air, smell the roses, and walkabout for the next hour or so.

I fantastized listening to classical music in the sunken atrium with the soft breezes blowing through the sunlight room as the sun went down.......ahhhhhhhhhh! www.CasaRomantica.org

Loved this historical home opened up for the people. I have been here many times, great functions and classes not to mention wonderful exhibits for all to see. Peaceful beyond and the view is the best in the world!
