Our modern 3100 SF home, built in 2004, is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, with a large enclosed yard, courtyard with fountain, downstairs office and guest bedroom, and three upstairs bedrooms. The master bedroom has a separate retreat with its own office and exercise area. Downstairs there is a living room with piano, a large dining area (seats 8), a kitchen with all stainless steel appliances that opens to a family room with a fireplace, large-screen TV, DVD, and Wii, an office with fast internet access and a sofa bed that sleeps 2, and a guest bedroom and bathroom with shower.
Outside we have a large yard with a bike path, playset with swings and slide for children, a tetherball court and ping pong table, and two patio areas. We have 2 children's bikes you can use and many children's toys and games. Our housecleaner comes twice a month and we can arrange for her to come during your stay.
Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood in Talega, four miles from the beach and midway between San Diego and Los Angeles. There are many walking and biking paths in the neighborhood, three community resort-style pools, and several parks, one of which is located at the end of our street. Our community website has many photos of the Talega amenities, including the clubhouse, sport court, pools and parks: http://www.talegatoday.com. The local grocery store, coffee house and other shops are all within easy walking distance. We are 1 1/2 hours south of Los Angeles, 1 hour north of San Diego, 45 minutes from Disneyland, and 30 minutes from Legoland. San Clemente is a surfing town with several beautiful beaches to choose from and a lovely downtown and pier.
We are a family of four, with two children, ages 12 and 9. I am a professor and will be teaching in Tolouse, France during the month of July, 2012. My husband is a sales manager with a software company in Irvine. Our son is 12 and our daughter is 9. We have two dogs, but will make arrangements for them to stay elsewhere while we are gone. We love to travel and enjoy spending time with our family and friends.
