Property type house

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.

Whale Watching in the Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay in March 2017. Amelia provided very detailed instructions and great recommendations for restaurants and activities nearby. Bed was very comfortable. Found everything we needed easily. The gatekeepers and other locals we met were all very friendly. We were able to go horseback riding on the beach from the villa. Frequent whale sightings out the window and while on the beach were an unexpected bonus!

Always love Casita Barranca!

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit the casita years ago and finally made it back this year. The best thing about this house is the view. From every room its ocean as far as the eye can see. There are mostly gringos at the other rentals, many of them with dogs and kids, and groceries and restaurants are closeby. Can't wait to come back!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second straight year staying at Casita Barranca, and we're already discussing coming back next year for our 3rd. The house is everything you could ask for, and we love the views, the beach, and the fire pit. We also enjoy the location of the house - under an hour from the border, a couple minutes from La Fonda and La Mision, and within 35-40 minutes of some wonderful wineries. It is truly a beautiful home, and the setting and ambiance make for a relaxing get-away.

Wonderful Beachfront Casita

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly situated for amazing views of the Pacific Ocean from every room. The highlights of our trip were keeping warm by the fire pit on the beach and a day in close by Ensenada.

Great location and beautiful outdoor ares

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at Casita Barranca over the last 10 years. We love the beach at La Mision from the public beach up North to La Fonda and we love where this house in situated on that two mile stretch. We were delighted to find the addition of a fire pit and lounge chairs right at the base of the house on the sand where we had nightly fires. We left the windows open at night so we could hear the surf from the bedrooms. The master bedroom and the second bedroom were very comfortable, the third bedroom is quite small and can only fit one person or two small children. The kitchen was well stocked with a super cool back splash. There were lots of fun treasures to explore at the house and books to read.The house could use a non-stick frying pan. We met the owners and they were very personable and accommodating.

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".
