My place is a duplex with two small apartments. The upper unit (600 s/f) is good for couples, or small familes. Lower unit is a studio, also a rental. Two small BR upstairs, small BA w/ just a clawfoot tub-no shower.
We're steps to Calafia Beach on the San Clemente "Loop"a park overlooking the ocean w/steps to the beach. Very dog friendly.
This is a VERY quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Nearby houses are very near! Consideration a must!
Children seem to love this house and they are very welcome!
