“Perfect Choice”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 for a stay in May 2013

I stayed in Casita Laurita for 5 days in May. Meeting Laura (the owner) was the best part of staying here. Her hospitality was well appreciated. She stayed up late in the evening waiting for me on a saturday night despite my arrival time being quite unpredictable. Her welcome gift was even tailored for my vegan leanings and complete with raw vegan desserts and a smoothie (now that's service!). Her little "annex" off the end of her house is comfortable, clean, and quiet. This place is comfortable for max two people and feels like a B&B. There is a tiny kitchenette that's suitable to microwave things, toast things but not really cook a real meal. Good enough for a vegan like me to whip something simple up save money on the road and not sacrifice my diet. It is a few minutes away from the bus stop (I took the bus to places which is super convenient) and it is a 10 minute walk to San Clemente beach. Also walking distance to the grocery store, which has organic, vegan, gluten-free stuff too. I'd stay there again and I hope you do too.

Hi there, my friend. I just thought I'd let you know that on your next visit to our lovely village by the sea and specifically, Casita Laurita, you will find a full kitchen in place of the "kitchenette". It's darn cute and a perfect addition to the studio. Oh, and the bathroom has been re-done as well! Take a look at the pics in the gallery.

I hope you are doing well and having a swell spring. I look forward to hosting you again in the future.

Warm regards,
Laura, aka "Laurita";)

Casita Laurita had absolutely everything we could have wanted. I have never stayed at a place that provides so much for such a reasonable price. The room is cozy and comfortable, and the patio is a great place to hang out, drink a beer, and grill some fish. Yes, you can use the grill.

Just a short walk down the road to T-Street, and lots of beach supplies are provided: towels, umbrella, boogie board, and more.

Laura was so friendly and always made herself available if there was anything we needed. Can't wait to go back!

“Charming!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Casita Laurita is a charming little studio in San Clemente, CA, a laid back little beach side town. I never thought I'd find a futon comfortable...Laura made it up with a topper and luxurious duvet that made it extremely comfy! Speaking of Laura, she's the most accommodating owner we've had the pleasure of knowing. The location is within walking distance from Del Mar St. where we found shops and restaurants. We would definitely return for another long weekend visit!
