My boyfriend and I love this place! The fantastic unobstructed ocean views from the huge picture window in the room, the beautifully mantained green grassy area with seating overlooking the beach, and the patio area with seating right outside the room are just three features making the Beachcomber such a special find. We also love the fully equipped vintage kitchen and the vintage tile in the shower which reminded me of my grandmothers place in 1960's LA. The location couldn't be any better as it's a nice walk to the beach, the pier, great restaurants and shopping. The sofa and chairs needed to be replaced, as well as the vanity in the bathroom, and parking is tight and limited; however, these negatives won't keep us from looking forward to a return trip!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Beachcomber Inn is a quaint boutique style inn situated steps from the Pacific Ocean. The inn was constructed in 1947 and offers vintage at its finest. The Beachcomber is believed to be the oldest continuously running businesses in town, and it is one of the few examples of Spanish Colonial Revival style inns located on a coastal bluff. The blissfully secluded Beachcomber provides the perfect window through which to experience the California lifestyle. This inn, due to the properties' unique position, offers unparalleled views of the waters below. Enjoy surf, sand and sun along with the unobtrusive charm of this inn. Spend the day on the waves, shopping on Del Mar, enjoying free WiFi or dining at a local non-chain eatery. You'll be sure to fill your day with fun or relaxing moments. Just 30 minutes from John Wayne Airport and minutes from the Amtrak train stop, the inn offers oceanfront lodging, complete with individual patios overlooking the beauty of the San Clemente Pier which creates the quintessentially relaxing hideaway. Rooms are also appointed with a fully equipped kitchen, king bed and sofa bed. The grounds allow for a peaceful night by the fire enjoying unobstructed views as the sunset casts a burnt-orange tint over the glistening surf. ... more less
