About Irka Davis
have lived in the Punta Banda area for 24 years. Was born in Germany to Ukranian parents, and brought up in Buffalo NY my travels took me to live for a while in Miami where I got a dream job of working on a cruise ship. The Caribbean Islands were just amazing and this job was the highlight of my life. After meeting a couple from Oklahoma on the ship, I decided to give Oklahoma a try. Met my first husband and had a son. Met my second husband and he was the one who convinced me to come to Ensenada area. So I left OK after 20 years and moved to Baja. I just love the area, the community, the views and the peace. I found a nice niche here. I own a property management company, a rental and real estate business and am the Artistic Director of our community theatre The Gertrude Pearlman Theatre which has given me the opportunity to act in over 25 plays and direct 16! It's a good life!!!
Irka Davis purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Irka Davis chose Lengüeta Arenosa
I was at the house contacted by owner to sell. My sister was visiting and went with me. When I left with a listing agreement, she convinced me this was the house i had on my vision board at home. A U shaped design where you can see water thru the house to the other side. It sure was. So i completed my dream. The family who i bought from were the Storey Family. So I call this my Storeybook Hacienda. It was a storybook on how I got to own this wonderful property.
What makes this Villa unique
Beauty: Everyone who walks thru the front doors just sighs. 4 huge windows, floor to ceiling plus a glass in alcove to sip morning coffee and watch the dolphins playing in the surf. The courtyard is special since it is a large entertaining/gathering area with pergola with a table for 6, a bar and 2 couches. With the placement of windows front and back you can still see the ocean even in the courtyard.

Highly recommend this property! It was just what we were looking for! We loved having access to the beach and the house was clean and had great views!
Irka was always available and gave us tips as to what to do around the area! The house is near “La Bufadora”, which was a plus! Overall great experience!!
It was my family and I first time staying at this property and we enjoyed every minute of it. Home was even better than the pictures in ad. We look forward to coming back!
It was a pleasure hosting you and your family.
Come back soon/

My family and friends enjoyed the stay. Beautiful home with a great view. We will defenilty repeat in near future.
We are so glad your stay in Baja was awesome. We would like to welcome you back anytime.
Overall stay was good.
The house was very nice. The beach was close and beautiful. Irka was quick to respond and made an early check in available. I felt a little uneasy at this house because of the statements made in the check in letter such as...the silverware are counted, if the trash is not left in a black bag you will be charged $50, if there is something wrong that you fail to tell me about before checking out, you will be charged. These statements left me feeling like I could not touch anything or I would be charged. This was my first use of a house like this so maybe these statements are necessary for some people but I always take care of wherever I stay.
Matt here, Irka's son, I met you at the house while you were here. Thank you for the nice comments. It was a pleasure having you at the home. You were very nice people and very respectful to the house; thank you for that.
Apologies for our rules making you feel like you couldn't relax in the house. That wasn't our intention. It's unfortunate that it resulted in us losing a star in our rating. Doesn't really feel fair.
Our house rules are a lot more strict than you are probably used to seeing because we get a lot of disrespectful people that come to Mexico thinking that there are no rules and destroy our homes. It's costly to the homeowners and discourages the homeowners from wanting to rent their homes out; costing us future business and it's frustrating because a lot of times these negligent people often leave terrible reviews. Feels like a lose-lose situation at times.
Just so you know for the future, in case you feel like renting from us again, we don't usually ding people for issues with the homes; trash, however, is always a big issue and our trash company that picks up will not pick it up unless bagged, which costs us and the homeowners a lot of extra time and money. This is why the extra charge.
I looked through my listing info and couldn't find anyplace where it said that I count silverware. Would you please guide me to the spot where you saw it? Thank you.
Matt & Irka
the host has thought of everything! the stay was very comfortable and the beach pristine and beautiful!
Located in Punta Banda, this is on the beautiful six mile beach. The water is shallow for long distances; just perfect for the kids. Watch the dolphins swim by in the waves, get out the boogie boards, play Frisbee or volleyball on the beach. Rent a horse for a ride down the beach. The end of the estuary is a protected bird sanctuary; there are walking trails and signs to acquaint you to plants native to the area and birds that migrate through.
Close by are wonderful restaurants. La Marina restaurant is a great setting facing the estuary and mountains...
Horseshoe pits sun-bathing chairs and palapas allow an enjoyable experience dining outside on the patio with a breathtaking view; and just a short walk from the restaurant to the beach. Live music weekends.
Not far away is a water park and zip lines!! Las Canadas has 5 lines and rope bridges and boasts the longest zip line in Mexico. 500 meters.
Ensenada is a cosmopolitan city with lots of nightlife, a free museum and culinary delights.
Other Activities: hot water springs, and the famous Blowhole LaBufadora
