The Marblehead Crest community is a great place to find ocean view homes in a secure gated community in San Clemente.  The community is situated at the very top point of the Marblehead community which is easily accessed by taking the "Pico" exit off the 5 freeway.  Marblehead homes were built in the mid 1990's and at the time there was a huge demand for these homes.  So much so that homes were being offered on a lottery system where you would take a card and if you number got called you were lucky enough to purchase a home!  Those days are gone but these homes are still high in demand.  Case in point, a home in the Crest community located at 2538 Called just came on the market and within a week had two multiple offers on it.  The home featured a wonderful

One of my favorite places to find ocean view condos is definitely the Ocean Hills complex.  When I first started selling real estate in San Clemente I was mesmerized but the incredible views that can be found in this community.  By far, the best view to be found in San Clemente is at the top of the hill on "Calle Pluma" street.  From this location you have panoramic views of the ocean as well as a clear view of the Dana Point Harbor and beyond.

One of the hidden spots to find nice ocean view condos in San Clemente is the "Seaview Townhomes" community.  These town-homes were built in the mid 1970's and feature direct views of the ocean and often include pier and coastline views as well.  Situated directly above the 5 freeway on the southeast side are the town-homes.  For those sensitive to noise may find the freeway a little too loud but keep in mind that a lot of these condos have installed dual paned windows to keep things quiet inside the property.

The community offers a nice association pool, spa and tennis court with monthly dues of approximately $399 a month.  This is an ideal location as you can easily walk to the downtown San Clemente district as well as down to the beach.  Just
