Approximately ten minutes away from the Dana Point Harbor, this venue overlooks the bright blue waves of the Pacific Ocean.
Facilities and Capacity
Up to 175 guests can travel back in time at this historic landmark. The building itself features traditional arched doorways, hand-painted tiles, elaborate stained-glass windows and original wrought-iron grillwork. Red clay roof tiles add a pop of color to the white stucco of the building’s exterior, and compliments the greenery of the surrounding landscape. The main room, called the Great Room, inside the venue features polished hardwood floors and dark wooden beams running along the cathedral ceiling. Couples may also use the terraces for their wedding event. Two open-air terraces connect to the Great Room and provide views of the Grand Lawn and Pacific Ocean. The Grand Lawn is the venue’s outdoor space. Perfect for oceanside ceremonies, couples can set up an arbor or arch in the grass, framed by palm trees, with ocean waves in the background to exchange their vows and begin their lives together.
Couples are invited to host their ceremony and reception jointly at the Ole Hanson Beach Club. In addition, couples can also host their bridal shower and engagement party at the venue.

The most gorgeous San Clemente spot!
I'm the owner of Tayler Ashley Photography and I've had the pleasure of working at Ole Hanson Beach Club. If you're looking for the perfect mix of spanish and coastal style, this is your spot! The views are incredible and I truly enjoyed shooting here.Sent on 05/01/2020

Spanish Style with an Ocean Backdrop
This is such a hidden gem, but I don’t think it will stay hidden for long. That’s because Ole Hanson is amazing in itself. The view overlooking the water, the Spanish style with details that make for beautiful photography backdrops, and the amazing staff! We looked at 4 venues, two of which were run by 24 Carrots Catering. Both venues by 24K had staff that were informative, friendly, and creative with different ideas to help you envision your day. We ultimately decided on Ole Hanson because it would offer our guests, which were majority east coasters, a great opportunity for a California beach vacation. What more could you ask for than getting married with the beach as your backdrop, brunching rooftop near the beach, dancing inside with beautiful wood details? This venue makes it EASY if you want to keep it simple. It offers so many details already that there’s no need to splurge on additional decor and details. The best part is they make it so simple to connect with the best vendors. Communication is always on point and quick.Sent on 08/11/2019

Beautiful ocean front venue
This venue is breathtaking!!! You can’t go wrong with an ocean front view. The reception can take place on an open rooftop deck looking at the ocean too!one negative is they are very strict on vendors. They use 24 carrots for catering needs. The food is great but it would be nice to have more options.Sent on 06/02/2019
