Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, accomodates a max. of 6 people

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.

Outstanding ocean views in a cozy home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing....will not disappoint.

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Baja with our young kids 5 to 6 times per year. We've stayed at Playa la Mision and other locations (such as La Fonda, Las Gaviotas, Estero Beach, etc) in the past, but this is now our new favorite. We met Amelia and Michael the day before we checked out. They couldn't be nicer and more accommodating. We have a large (but sweet) German Shepard. He became best friends with their dogs. The house is very cozy and welcoming. Playa la Mision is the best in Baja, and their location is the best in the community. What a wonderful weekend. Truly magical. We will come here exclusively from here on (at least until we build here!) Thank you Amelia and Michael!!!!

The best place to stay in Baja

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Casita Barranca. We can't wait to come back. It is very homelike, and the kitchen is extremely well stocked with a toaster, coffee maker, cappuccino maker. They have beach toys and chairs. The beds are comfortable, and the view is incredible. The hosts are so friendly and so conscientious.

Out of many places I have stayed in Baja, this is my favorite.

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 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".
