San Clemente-Casa Romantica

If you are visiting San Clemente, this is a beautiful, historical house to visit with a beautiful view of the ocean!

In 1969, President Richard Nixon bought part of the H.H. Cotton estate, which was one of the original homes built by one of Hanson's partners.  President Nixon called it "La Casa Pacifica".  The house sits above one of the West Coast's premier surfing spots, known as "Trestles".  After Mr. Nixon resigned, he retired to San Clemente to write his memoirs.  He sold the home in 1980.

The following is a link to Casa Romantica for times to visit:


  1. What a beautiful home. I'd love to visit sometime.

  2. Do people live in it, or is it a museum of sorts?

    1. Hi Eydie, It is a museum of sorts! They do have weddings there as well!
