San Clemente, California
French doors lead into this sweet beach getaway in charming San Clemente, California. The sleeping room (approx. 175 sq. ft) is spanking clean with polished original hardwood floors and includes a flat screen TV, a mini-fridge, micro, toaster and coffeemaker to get your day going. There is a large bathroom with tub and shower, as well as a large living and dining area. Please note that the sleeping arrangement is for two people in the double bed in the bedroom. The sofa in the living area is not used for overnight sleeping. Laurita (that's me) has all 5 star reviews and prides herself on accommodating any request her treasured guests may have.

Casita Laurita was the perfect place to stay in San Clemente. Pleasant walk to beach, main street with local restaurants and shops, and a grocery store too. The Casita itself was cozy and very comfortable. Nicely decorated, very clean and well thought though. Host Laura friendly and informative - very knowledgeable, warm and welcoming. Had a welcome package set for...

I don't know why anyone would stay at a hotel in San Clemente when they could stay here! It was so nice to open the french doors and relax on the patio. Laura was very nice and friendly, and the place was nicely and comfortably decorated. Just perfect.

Thanks for the kind words. You are right about hotels....even though I worked in the industry for many years! Maybe I bring a bit of the...

Perfectly delightful! What a wonderful stay with Laura at her charming cottage by the sea. And she is so very warm and welcoming, looking after every little detail to make sure you feel at home. Located near the beach and downtown Del Mar, everything is just around the corner from the casita. We felt like locals during our visit, in...
