La Mision House Rental Photos and Description

EXOTIC SURF VIEWS from all the kitchen, dining and entertainment areas.

NFL FOOTBALL IS BACK -FALL'S COMING!

Come enjoy the comforts of your own home, sprinkled with a Baja's Charm. Plan a Summer trip on our fabulous beach. The Ocean setting of the house sports a surf view all the way to the south end of the beach. We are exactly in the middle. There is a a mile and a half of beach in front of the house. Just TEN STEPS off the patio, you sink your toes into the soft, warm sand.

Our San Diego architect took maximum advantage of the ocean setting, lining both upstairs and downstairs with 4 X 8 foot panes of glass. As a result, the Sunsets are both picturesque as well as a beautiful way to conclude your day. Winter and Spring are the best! (SEE PICTURES)

The house sleeps can sleep up to 8, but is ideal for 4 adults and three children. In the upstairs bedrooms, we have two comfortable, recently upgraded Kings. The downstairs, on the other hand, has a double, a double futon couch and a double fold-out sofa bed. The futon and sofa bed are ideal for the kids.

La Mision is a small, gated, patrolled, beach community with good restaurants close by. It is dotted with small markets, taco stands, Red Cross and a Police Station.

As you step off the patio into the soft sand, look both ways. There is a mile and a half of enjoyment in front of you. We prefer the walk to the North for privacy. It is like being on your own private island. There is never a crowd. You will just have to experience the solace and tranquility.

FOOTBALL IS HERE AGAIN HOORAY! During the NFL football season, we offer the Premium package of Sunday NFL ticket. This allows you to watch all 8 games, while just pushing the remote to have the audio for each game. Of course, you can always, just turn to the RED Zone channel' and catch every score from every game. The other TV can be tuned to a separate NFL game; however, if the wife's prefer they can have their own separate channels on the other TV. (after football, of course) We also offer numerous other sports channels when football is out of season. We just finishing Wimbledon, the British Open, and the World Cup in Brazil The Fed Ex Cup is coming soon GO BUBBA!

If you are a volleyball enthusiast, like I was, there is a court right out front on the beach. Nets are found in the beach Boogie board room at beach level. I hosted the La Fonda 2 Man Beach Tournament with ten courts in front of the house for over 10 years. Just bring your ball!

On the other hand, if you are a Surfer, we have a GOOFY FOOTED break right out front. The World renowned K-38 is just North of us, while Salasipuedes ( Hawaii type waves) and San Miguel are to the South.

We have year round activities for kids and adults. The horseback riding on the beach is more like horseback walking. It is great for kids as well as being romantic for adults at Sunset. But, do not expect lively horses. They will, however, deliver you right to the front of the house on the return trip.

At the South end of the beach there are food vendors selling all types of Mexican food. The fresh fruit and the ripe Coconuts are the most popular.

COME VISIT AND SEE!!!

About Dick and Aracely Sampson

This has been our weekend home away from home for some time now. Living in San Diego, it is just a 45 minute drive from the border, down the toll road to the house. Watching the dolphins feed just before a magnificent sunset, with you favorite beverage in hand, you forget about work week that you just finished. By listening to the crashing waves as they lull you to sleep, you return to the States invigorated, refreshed and ready for a new week..

Dick and Aracely Sampson purchased this house in 1970

Why Dick and Aracely Sampson chose La Mision

If you are looking for lots of people, loud music, and younger 18 year old bars - Rosarito (20 minutes North) will be more suited to your taste. Ensenada (25 minutes south), on the other hand, offers a large, crowded city atmosphere with a fabulous fish market, reasonable fish tacos and lots of shopping. Please, visit both nearby cities and see why we chose our quaint little spot on the beach in between them.

We have a number of restaurants within a mile. La Fonda, The Light House, Cieto Lindo, Maganas, and the La Mision Hotel.

8 miles to the North is the Baja's Finest Lobster Villiage. A whole town of Lobster restaurants. Our favorite is La Perlita. Tell Lupe that 'Ricardo from La Mision' says Hello. According to the story, a number of years ago, we built his second story with our parties.

August is Wine Country month - if you prefer a pleasant wine and cheese tasting tour, Guadalupe Valley is a scenic 25 mile drive through the hills to the south. For more intimate details of the various tastings, check with Dick.

What makes this house unique

As mentioned above, if you like football or soccer, you don't have to miss any of your NFL games.The family can enjoy the beach while you keep track of your favorite team. You can watch two or eight games at the same time.

To this day our resident Historian, Charlie Wild, 86 years young, tells us about the days before the toll road, electricity and the telephone. He says, 'Those were the good 'ol days'.

Of course, we have to imagine how we could have existed without Direct TV, the wireless internet, Gas BBQs, and our Satellite dish.

The beach is still as pristine,peaceful and uninhabited as the day we got here.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for the first time in May and had such a great time we came back this past week! This place is paradise and the Sampson's are excellent hosts. You can't find a better view and the sunsets are absolutely spectacular. We've recommended this to all of our friends and will definitely return in the future.

La Mision Review CT

  • 5 of 5
As you suggested, we stopped at Carnitas Michocan in Rosarito for a one kilo order of the “puro carne central” to go. The Corn tortillas and the Carnitas were as advertised - Great. We arrived just in time for a terrific Sunset. We topped off our dinner with your lemon yogurt recipe for Margaritas. Boy, were they smooth and potent. Thank goodness, we were already in for the evening.
We awoke early and drove to the fish market in Ensenada. We bought a 7 kilo yellow tail. We had the front half cut in to steaks for the BBQ and the remainder for Cerviche. They saved us the trouble and ground it up at the market.
The ladies stopped to shop while we headed to the center of town to place our Super Bowl bets. Everybody was secretive about who and what they were betting.
On the way back, we stopped at that Tortilleria that you recommended. We indulged in two fresh packets of Harina and one of Maiz for our seafood fiesta..
After we finished the BBQ, we sat around the fireplace as the ladies sipped their Kahlua and milk and we had our Cervazas.
As we arose the next day for our usual beach walk, everyone showed their true colors. Out popped four Bronco Jerseys and my wife and I dressed in our old Seattle sweatshirts with green and blue sweats. Now, I saw why everyone was being so secretive about betting yesterday. They all knew I was from Seattle. Well, we showed them – Big time. I made enough to cover one day of our rent. Thanks
Great house. We’ll be back next year. We want to visit the Wineries.

Great spot on the beach. Easy to book reservations-- owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Boogie boards available at the property.

Plenty of sleeping spaces. Wonderful to listen to the ocean at night.

Now that you know where all the orphanages are, I hope you will return to spend more time. I'm glad we could help. I enjoyed meeting your family in San Diego as well as La Mision.

The Best of Baja!

  • 5 of 5
4th of July in Mexico is really a trip. Even though it is not a holiday in Mexico, when we went out to dinner, every beach we passed had the locals shooting fireworks out over the ocean. It was a beautiful site. They are legal there, but definitely not controlled.
In Texas, we have a lot of sand, but we sure don’t have those nice sunsets over the Ocean to go with it. Our friends met us at the San Diego airport and we all headed south. This was only our third time in Mexico. It was our first in Baja. With all the bad newspaper articles in our area, I was a bit nervous. But, when we entered the gate to the community and the guard asked us for all this information, I started feeling better. Our friends assured us that they had been here many times without any problems.
We played a round of golf on the Ocean course at Bajamar. It was really difficult. I went out with a dozen golf balls, but I came back with 10 different ones. People don’t seem to look for their lost balls in Mexico.
Your house was delightful. I ran the beach every morning. I took a lot of pictures in the Estuary. I also took a number of shots of the sunsets with the waves crashing on the rocks at the south end. I’ll send you some. The two part hieroglyphic Indian painting was amazing; however, the picture of last remaining Adobe wall of your old Mission was not that exciting.
Our friends were right. You have a great house –Right on the Sand. We had an enjoyable adventure. Now that we have more confidence, we will do it again in the fall!
Thanks.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
We both thank you and Aracely for the hospitality!

We greatly appreciated the words of wisdom on the area.

As far as the house goes , you keep it very clean and usable. We can't think of anything that needs attention.

The place really grew on us and we enjoyed our stay. We look forward to bringing the kids down and staying there in the near future.
