Casita Barranca has a rich history. Built by Nobel Peace Prize Physicist and widely read author Richard Feynman, it sits on the side of a low beach cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A private stairway, from two intimate ocean front patios, allows for immediate access to a sandy, solitary beach. Spacious ocean-facing windows throughout the property mean you will never miss a great break, or a sunset.
At Casita Barranca, you are only a few steps from one of the best beaches in Baja. Walk in the surf, sunbathe, dig for clams, fish, build sand castles, swim, surf or ride horses on the house's isolated and romantic beach. Guests are afforded an extraordinary view of the Pacific Ocean from this one of a kind house, hidden from view in a gated community. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets can be observed from the interior of the house, the patios or the beach.
Casita Barranca has been newly decorated and completely remodeled. Exquisite Mexican furniture and new appliances, including a Smart TV which can be used to sign into Netflix and your other media accounts, add to your comfort.
The three bedroom, two bath house sleeps six comfortably.

About Amelia Kienzl
Hello, I am Amelia. I love my CasitaBarranca in Baja, I am sure you will love it too
Why Amelia Kienzl chose La Misión
I love the history of this house. Richard Feynman was the original owner and his aura is still present. No wonder Mr. Feynman came to this lovely Baja Retreat whenever he could. This unique beach retreat gives me harmony and peace whenever I am here. Richard Feynman’s spirit is still living on.
What makes this House unique
Complete privacy, dolphins jumping all year long. Whale watching from the house and terrace. Direct private access to the beach. Your own beach terrace with fire pit. Close to Rosarito and Ensenada but still secluded from the hassle of today’s world. Stay at the Beach retreat of World renowned Nobel Prize winner Richard Feynman.

We had a wonderful time at casita barranca a very well appointed and equipped home with a sense of history. And there is plenty to do nearby (fishing, horses, hikes) but I never wanted to leave. And the owners were both welcoming and attentive. Thank you.
Amazing view, dolphins, horses, dogs, blue sparkling water!
My love of the ocean was re ignited at Amelias home! In fact I came home with torn ligaments, due to way too much barefoot running on the beach.
We had a wonderful stay at Casita Barranca! The house is very comfortable & the view is amazing. Great location, with good restaurants nearby. We can’t wait to go back!!
Oh, the waves!
Love staying here! So much atmosphere, plus the beach! I love hearing the ocean, it is so relaxing, and the stars at night are fantastic. Perfect location!
Outstanding ocean views in a cozy home
We have been coming to Casita Barranca for years and just love the house. If your ideal vacation is staring at the ocean, walking or surfing just down the stairs - or in the winter cozying up to a fire is your idea of a good time, this is the spot for you.
Really beautifully designed and welcoming. Everything was lovely; would recommend to everyone.
We have a smart TV for our guests to use which allows you to sign into your Netflix and other accounts directly. Dogs are welcome at both the Casita Barranca Rental home, as well as on our beach! Our fire-pit allows for evening beach-side bonfires, something restricted to nostalgia in many other beach locations. Other Activities for those visiting the Casita include boating, surfing, fishing, Wildlife Viewing, Kitesurfing, hiking, as well as sightseeing in Rosarito and Ensenada. The scenic drive south down to Ensenada is a wonder in and of itself. A visit to the La Fonda restaurant is a staple for our guests who wish to satisfy their culinary cravings with excellent Mexican cuisine served up in gorgeous beach-side environs. Travelling inland, the nearby Baja Wine country, Valle de Guadalupe, offers a plethora of options for a lovely day excursion. Tijuana has seen a resurgence of microbreweries, and if you are driving down from San Diego to visit us, a stop at one of them is well worthwhile. Especially for those inclined to indulge in the occasional premium craft cerveza. Opportunities to purchase coffee and chocolate from Chipaas should not be passed up, especially for those with a proclivity for these "necessities for life".
