Punta Banda House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
January and February and sometimes March have all 3 seasons! We think summer here is just about perfect, but winter time is a horse of a different color -- fewer people, great weather, the perfect place to read, cook a gourmet meal (or have it catered!) and just kick back and enjoy. Wine country is close, golf is close, lots of things to do and see. And our rates are lower -- only $200-250/night -- and we don't raise them for holidays. February brings Carnaval -- Ensenada's own Mardi Gras celebration, very local and lots of fun. Whale watching has begun, boats go out daily and the whales seem to be abundant this year. Spring brings great wine tastings and dinners in the Guadalupe Valley, fresh veggies at the local markets and lots of things to see and do.
A beautiful property on a long sandy beach, swimming is perfect, surfing is so-so. To find the many attractions in this area, google Ensenada or Punta Banda and you will be amazed. La Bufadora is close by, hot springs on the beach are an easy stroll away, the Guadalupe Valley offers wine tours and tastings, great restaurants in Ensenada along with a new art museum and tons of shopping, from curios to beautiful clothes, leather goods and other items.
This property is perfect for families on vacation, friends who want to get together, or couples who want a great place to get away for a romantic holiday. We have recently had a family on sabbatical from a university located in cold country; they were here for 6 months, enrolled their children in the local schools to learn Spanish, and are reluctantly heading back to snow!
Fun shopping in Ensenada or at La Bufadora, much less hustle and bustle. Then come home, light the gas fire, watch the city lights and sip a little wine or a nice cup of tea.

We have lived here, on and off, for over 25 years and still find it ideal. The weather is great, the ocean is ever changing, the people are terrific and the choices of things to do is never ending. We bought this property as a rental and our eventual home (first we have to pay it off!) and we live just down the street.
Punta Banda is a perfect family beach area; the beach is shallow for quite a way, the waves are gentle and occasionally even offer something for surfers. Our family has enjoyed vacations here for years and we hope other families can have the same experience. But, this is not just a 'family' house, it's a great place for that reconnection weekend you and your significant other have talked about for ages, it's a fun house to entertain friends, great for house parties (notice, we did not say 'drunken brawls') and it's the perfect place to visit alone when you're stressed out from the normal world. We can feel cares slipping away as we cross the border.
We love ending the day with a glass of wine on one of the two the decks overlooking the ocean, going out early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the estuary, bike riding along the beach and watching people just kicking back and enjoying life. The fireplace provides a cozy spot on cooler days, and big glass doors open to allow breezes to flow through on warmer days. The beach is perfect for our grandchildren, who are now ages 4 months to 23 years -- hard to beat that! Dolphins in the evenings, pelicans all day, sea gulls scrapping overhead, little skittering birds along the water all provide entertainment. For some world class meals, Ensenada is close by. Local restaurants come and go and some are perfect for a day after the beach. They currently offer everything from good Mexican food to pizza to fish so fresh that it smiles up at you. If you want to do nothing, there are movies to watch on the DVD player, books galore to read in the 'library' aka the bunk room, and lots of places for navel gazing and contemplation! We are available anytime should you need information or a fast repair or toilet paper or whatever.
