About Robert Bayer

We are a family of 6. Mom, Dad and 4 teenagers. Mom and Dad are retired United States Naval officers that are now working to raise their children. We live in San Diego so we are a short trip (less than an hour) from this house in Las Gaviotas.

Robert Bayer purchased this house in 2004

Why Robert Bayer chose Northern Baja

In 2002, a friend offered us a chance to stay at their house in Las Gaviotas. Being from the east coast we were a bit apprehensive about going to Mexico. We were we wrong. We enjoyed our short stay so much that we continued to rent other house with friends and family and continued to have wonderful, short get a ways to our slice of paradise in Mexico at Las Gaviotas. In 2003 we decided to buy a place. We have not looked back since.

What makes this house unique

Once we turn into the gates of Las Gaviotas we witness the beautiful ocean view and we feel the peace and serenity of the area. We love to walk around the community especially the paved paths along the coast and down to the beach. Having the amenities of the house, vice a hotel, gives our whole family and friends the room to spread out and make everyone feel like they are at home. We hope you feel the same experience.

Great stay for an active bunch

  • 5 of 5

I had 10 guys come to my bachelor party and this was the perfect house to store 10 surfboards in the garage and sleep everyone! Unforgettable experience taking freshly caught fish in Ensenada and grilling them on the deck watching the surf and sunset. This was my best Las Gav Experience. Beautiful Property. Owner is quick to respond and very professional getting you all the info asap. 5 star

Best way to wake up in the morning!

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for...spacious, clean, well maintained and an unbeatable view from the large balcony. There was a bit of an ant problem but we kept the place really clean and it wasn't a problem. It is also close to the beach access and has plenty of parking. Rob is really easy to communicate with and always responded promptly to our emails.

Beautiful Home for Big Group!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated a 30th birthday with 12 adults and 1 baby over a weekend in July. Rob's house was a great choice for us - the pictures are very true to how the house looks. The three stories are nice - especially for sleeping babies being able to be on the bottom floor while the adults all hang out on the top floor. Super close to the beach, and wonderful views of the ocean. Has all the amenities you will need - and Rob is super helpful and responsive in email communication prior to the trip. I highly recommend to anyone else booking a trip to Las Gaviotas with a big group :)

The house itself is great, location and accomodation-wise, but there are some things that need attention like the very very slow drip shower in the downstairs bathroom, the infestation of ants in the bedroom closest to the downstairs bathroom and also the overall funky smell of the house (maybe it needs to be aired out more from time to time?). And we were asked to not leave dishes out and to take our all our trash out, although we payed a cleaning fee, so not sure why we needed to do that. But overall it was ok.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback as it helps us improve our house and ensure it is better for our next guests. As per our check in directions, we wish you would have told our Las Gaviotas on site property manager or us about your issues while you were staying at our house. This way, we may have been able to quickly take care of them while you were staying at the house. Not leaving dirty dishes in the sink and taking the trash out when you leave really helps us in the summer at Las Gaviotas when ants can sometimes be problematic. The good thing is that our maids worked with our property manager after you checked out and they were able to correct your issues. We did have someone check into our house after you checked out and when they checked out, they left us a 5 star review. Again, we greatly appreciate your feedback and we look forward to working with you another time.

Destination Location

  • 5 of 5

It had been 35 years since my last visit to Las Gaviotas and the stay exceeded my high expectations. Much outside the community has changed but within the community walls you're in another world.

This house in particular is a fantastic place for a couple of families to get together and play at pool during day, then BBQ Carne Asada as the sun sets. You get an excellent view of surfers on the break that's straight out. The living room is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is great for those who want to entertain. You'll also appreciate that the house is very clean and the neighbors are respectful. We took a quick drive out each day to lunch and play on a sandy beach, but next time I'll be tempted to not leave the compound for the entire 3 days.
