AH, BEAUTIFUL BAJA BEACHES,NO BETTER PLACE TO BE IN THE SUMMER,TOES IN THE SAND!

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.

Linda Sanders purchased this house in 2007

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.

AMAZING LONG-TERM RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home from July 1st to December 15th, and the entire stay was absolutely wonderful! My husband and I were on sabbatical and our three sons attended local schools. If you are looking for a place to read and write you'll be inspired by the ocean view and sunsets. It was quiet, calm, and safe. The beach is just steps away from the front deck and was perfect for morning runs and evening walks. Our boys were in the ocean from July through mid-October. The house is spacious and accommodated our guests who visited us during our stay. Ensenada is close enough to provide you with anything you might need, but far enough that there is a small beach town feel. The owner was amazingly helpful, but never infringed upon our space. We'll be back often for short stays and can't wait for our next sabbatical for another long-term visit!

WONDERFUL STAY IN PUNTA BANDA!

  • 5 of 5
Great location on the spit. Right on the beach, a nice gentle sloping beach with smallish waves. Good swimming beach (many Baja beaches are dangerous, not so here) but there are a couple surf breaks a short walk up or down the beach. House was great. Huge upstairs master bedroom + 2 others, 3 nice bathrooms, 2 balconies and big deck. Excellent parking. Great Views. Everything you could want including fast wireless internet, DirectTV, big, fully equipped kitchen. Owner, Linda, was fantastic: great communication and easy payment transactions. She took care of all our needs. Really an absolute pleasure and great place to say. Highly Recommended! 5 Stars.

HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
We travel on holiday almost exclusively through some kind of house rental agency. Often the photos do not represent the property as it truly is. These photos represent the lovely beach cottage to a Tee! It is so light and airy. A mix of East/West Coast Beach Cottage. Everywhere you look is the ocean. There is an Estuary on the backside to see an abundance of wildlife. The kitchen has everything you ever need to fix a gourmet dinner for 10. You just walk off the porch, take 20 steps and voila the beach. The beach is fabulous, a few miles of perfect, flat sand. You just dig a hole and you have your own hot tub! No kidding. It's very peaceful, but plenty to do in the surrounding area. Horseback riding, hiking, sightseeing, biking, swimming, surfing, fishing and on and on! The weather was perfect. We'll be back!

THE BEST SPOT IN MEXICO.

  • 5 of 5
This was a great trip. The owners were very friendly and made us right at home. They went above and beyond to make our vacation as memorable and enjoyable as possible. I recomend this house for everyone looking to stay at the beach. Beautiful kitchen and very cozy bedrooms. We will be back in the fall with the entire family. Thank you for a great stay.

GREAT GET AWAY ON THE SAND.

  • 5 of 5
Very enjoyable stay at Playa Dorada in the Punta Banda area. The description accurately reflects the 3 bedroom beach house. It's clean and the location is great! The long sandy beach is perfect for morning walks and the water is warm! We had fun with the kayaks.

Wi-Fi worked great. We took our laptops and stayed in contact with friends and family.

We visited the "Bufadora" nearby for an activity ... It was fun. Also tasted wines at the Santo Tomas Winery a half hour drive away. Very impressive...and good wines.

Overall its a very relaxing place, wish we had spent more time there and less of our vacation in other areas. I highly recommend this property to anyone who wants a hassle free getaway.

PERFECT DESCRIPTION - WE WERE BAREFOOT ON THE BEACH EVERYDAY WE WERE THERE!

  • 5 of 5
Best family vacation ever! The location, home, amenities were beyond our expectations. Horseback riding on the beach, walking to restaurants, seeing La Bufadora (the worlds 2nd largest marine geyser), finding the most beautiful shells, wading through tide pools filled with life, kayaking on the calm estuary behind the house (kayaks were at the house), boogie boarding on small waves in front of the house (again with boogie boards that were at the house) - we wanted to stay for ever. My 5 year old son and my 87 father had an equally fantastic time. We will be back for sure!

The wine country is just north of Ensenada, about an hour's drive away. It's a beautiful drive, lots of wineries to see and lots of wine to buy. Tide pools and mini hot spring close by. Bring your canoe or boat, jet ski, or Seadoos (sp?). La Bufadora is 15 minutes away, local health center offers yoga and other eastern style exercises, as well as massages that have everyone raving about them. Daily Zumba classes also held locally.During August, the Vendimia, a yearly wine festival with numerous events revolving around food and wine, are extremely popular; many sell out early. Golf is available at the Baja Country Club, a 20 minute drive and at Bajamar, about an hour north of Ensenada. Tide pools and a natural hot spring are close by; you can walk down, take a shovel and make your own hot tub! Take the kids to Las Cañadas water park (google it!) for water sports and zip lining . . . adult friendly as well!
