It's the sexiest joint you've ever seen including shower rooms and a fleet of bath tubs!
The childhood home of Californian Kolohe Andino whose phenomenal, beautiful, natural skill wasn’t allowed room to breathe on the world tour which led to his premature departure earlier this year, has been listed with hopes of around $1.895 million.
Having been granted a tour of the joint myself, I can attest to the grandeur of 2239 Avenida Salvador. From the stunning American kitchen with its acres of bench space, the walk-in shower (hello!), two big bathtubs, a sauna that’s shaped like a whisky barrel, the vast entertaining area with fireplace to the three-car garage and all just a short electric bike ride to the home of the WSL Finals, it’s a house that delivers in multiples. To add even more sparkle, it has hosted a raft of surfing stars over the years including the famous Ho family from Sunset Beach, Hawaii.
Per the selling lit,
Very desirable Southeast San Clemente location sitting on a rare flat/level 7,380 SF canyon lot with a large, serene & private backyard. Enter the front door to find vaulted open-beam ceilings along with picture windows allowing for incredible natural light. Continue to the kitchen that is open to the family room and dining area with breakfast bar seating.

Two of the 3 secondary bedrooms offer access to a private deck, lending coastal breezes and open space views. Attached tandem 3 car garage (3rd car area of garage is currently being used as office/exercise room), parallels a full bathroom with walk-in shower and backyard access. No HOA/Association dues, Lower base Tax area, No Mello/Roos! Just minutes to San Clemente golf course, world class surf, San Clemente’s historic pier, local boutique shopping and dining, and Dana Point Harbor. Great Opportunity!!
The place has been listed for three months now, which suggests there ain’t a lot of taste in that part of California. A house of this magnitude, near beach, for under two mill? Where’s the line?
Apart from not reaching the stellar heights that were predicted for him as a teenager, Kolohe, who is now twenty nine and five years into marriage with the stunning Madison Brooke-Aldrich (Maddie’s account of Kolohe’s Christmas Day proposal, is proof that virility isn’t just measured at the root of the belly where the phallus rises) will be remembered for helping get the Surf Ranch Pro onto the tour.
“After watching footage, Kolohe goes, ‘Why isn’t this on tour…well think about it!’” remembered Slater in his excellent documentary series Lost Tapes. “That’s when the conversation became real.”
Ironically, Kolohe’s initial enthusiasm would turn to sad when the contest did manifest, Kolohe accusing the judges of “playing mind tricks” and rewarding safety surfing and sitting in a barrel that carried with no risk.
