Relax in our gated community that includes a Night-Foot-Patrol-Security so you can sleep with Peace of Mind. This entire community is completely safe and friendly. A lot of Americans live here full time and the majority of the locals speak English. The air is clean, the skies are clear, and the scenic views are breath taking!
Both the main house and guest house feature custom tiled bathrooms and floors, 3 separate patios (two with domed roofs), french doors, open floor plan, large kitchen with granite countertops, tumbled travertine backsplash, spanish-colonial architecture all painted in a rich but soothing color scheme. All you need to bring is your toothbrush, personal skin care products, and your clothes.
Note: If you plan on cooking, we provide kitchen/cooking equipment, all you need to bring is your own spices/salt/oil.
This house is located directly in front of the very large river/estuary and appx. 300 ft. from the beach (5 minute walk). From the comfort of the living-room or the outdoor hammock sip your margarita while gazing the tranquil river/estuary and ocean, admiring the graceful white egrets, and listening to the ocean waves. Beach lovers will enjoy strolling on our secluded, clean, sandy beach, where they can swim, surf, boogie-board, horseback ride, or simply relax.
You can also walk inland along the river and even walk into the middle of the river/estuary where large trees grow on high points of soil build up. Standing in the middle of a lush estuary will feel like you have been transported away from city life and back to nature. Ofcourse, when you are ready, modern day comforts will await you back at the house!

We have visited many comunities along the baja coast in the last two decades and La Mision was the one we loved the most. The fresh water river pooling into a huge estuary right next to the ocean is very rare. The fresh water keeps the entire area around it lush and green year round when the rest of baja is dried up and brown. The rugged mountains to the east are beautiful. The wild life is as atracted to La Mision for the same reason as the humans are. Plus we love the convenience of being less than an hour away from the USA border.
At first glance it is a peaceful community but once you start meeting the neighboors you realize that there is always a fun gathering happening for one reason or onother. This gives you the option to have a quiet weekend or join the party for a few margaritas and dancing. La Mision is inhabited by americans who have been here for a long time. Many of the younger residents inherited their homes from their parents and they intend to keep them for their own kids. Our community has a very lived in feeling.
Sadly we only we able to spend one night here, but we made the most of our time. The house was beautiful and sparkling clean.... It felt like a true escape! I wish I could drink my morning coffee and evening wine on the patio every day: pure bliss! We rode horses on the beach, took a nice long walk along the river, and got some delicious shrimp and fruit from the stands along the beach. Thank you so much for being so accommodating and for sharing your beautiful home with us!
5 of us squeezed into Elsie's sweet guest house (the back house) and had a delightful time. Leticia was very helpful but also not ever in our way. We explored the beach, rode horses, went to eat at a restaurant and cooked a lot at home.
Elsie's directions and suggestions were SO precise and detailed and personal and terrific! We all loved referring to them.
I returned with some friends and rented both of Elsie's houses for the 2nd Thanksgiving in a row. We had an excellent time. The property is well maintained, spacious, and Leticia is there if you need her and busy with her other jobs if you don't. The beach is an easy walk, my elderly dog (15 and counting) enthusiastically walked to the beach and back every day while we were there. It is one of his last true pleasures in life. All utilities functioned perfectly this year, and we will happily recommend this property to others. Elsie is always responsive and attentive. Thanks for sharing your home.
Enjoyed our overall stay back in June 2012. The owner easy to communicate with but the place was very hard to locate at night and it was a bit scary since it is dark and the roads are not paved. Once we finally made our way to the property, we were greeted at the driveway with the keys which was nice since we arrived an hour late due to being lost. Very challenging to make a cell call in Mexico and theres no Wifi service once you get to the house. Daytime, scenery not so lovely as there is a lot of dirt around and even some discarded trash nearby. Also the locals said this area "rarely" sees any sunshine which was very disappointing considering it was summer and my husband and daughter and I had to endure a cold gloomy weekend. The pictured hammock wasnt there which was fine due to the chilled weather but if you look forward to relaxing in it, check to see if owner has replaced it first.
The house was roomy and clean, plenty of towels and blankets. Problem with both showers though is the water drains were clogged up so we were stuck taking showers while our feet bathed in backed up water below and it smelled "sewagey". Not pleasant. There were videos to keep our daughter entertained but no cable. Price was great but word of advice, be ready to rough it a bit.
Thanks for renting us your two lovely Baja homes. We wanted for nothing during our stay. I somehow managed to take home a kitchen towel which I would happily mail to your US address. We live in Los Angeles and rented the back house with the Langston-Grodachs.
The place was absolutely beautiful, clean and neat, it felt very warm like home...We wish we had warmer days, we sat outside enjoying the senery. Right in front of the house is a lake and to the right is the ocean...it was a bit cool, but well worth the trip...Elsie thank you for renting to us on such a short notice and thank you for recommending the great places to eat...this was a vacation (NO COOKING)...I would definitely stay again, although I would not bring my BMW, you need a vehicle that can handle a little more rough road...(LOL)
