Just spent five nights at the Garden Cottage on the Green and couldn't have been happier. Charming accommodations with plenty of privacy. And Bill's breakfasts both hearty and tasty. Will stay here next time I'm in San Clemente.

We stayed in the Cottage, which is a little two story house on the back property of the main house. Has a little kitchen on the first floor and queen size bed, sitting area, balcony and bathroom on the...

Bill and Sandra offer two accommodations centered around a courtyard - a cottage and a 'honeymoon suite' which is where we stayed. Our room(s) had a four poster bed with sumptuous linens, a fireplace, a spa tub, and a private sitting area. Bill has a talent for Espalier and the gardens are incredible. Every morning, we received a full coffee...
