The view was great, as were the grounds, the building, and the history! Be sure to get the guided tour.

“Wonderful special events”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We have been here several times and love how they remodeled yet kept the old. Its historical and there is always some historical show going on to see and speakers and events. Went to a wedding here once and it was beautiful with the ocean view and even the train sounds coming through below. call for an update on events

“Beautiful Gardens & A Fabulous View”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a historical home...you must tour it to learn the history of San Clemente and its founder as well as other southern California towns. The home overlooks the ocean and is a gorgous view, and the flower gardens are lovely. They are open limited hours.

“Beautiful site for a wedding!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Up overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The wedding was at Sunset, and it was perfect! No bride could want more. Dining was outdoors in back, but the weather was warm. Magical night!

“Great view of San Clemente's Pier”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Great idea to maintain and share this beautiful Casa Romantica as a cultural center. The garden could be more flourished with different ornamental plants. This will give even more the romantic touch! Aline Juillerat
