About the property

1 BEDROOM, 1BATH Romantic Casita (House) w/Beach & Ocean Access

Please contact me directly @ 714-963-3041. I AM ON FACEBOOK...PAM SHIER OR HACIENDA DE PAMELA.. Look at my 5 ALBUMS containing 100+ PHOTOS. NO MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED..

This lovely casita is located in a large flowered courtyard with direct private access to a six mile sandy beach where you can see dolphins frolicking in the waves! Located about 17 miles S/W of Ensenada on the road to La Bufadora, the famous Baja blowhole.

The casita is furnished Mexican-style with happy South of the Border colors & colorful Mexican tile work. It has a full kitchen with all appliances, cable TV with sport package & movie & many other channels. BBQ.grill for outside cooking of your fresh catch! Listen to the waves as you fall asleep in our brand new super comfy QUEEN bed. P.S.....all linens are supplied. And it will accommodate five!

The casita has a peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the bedroom, although no sit down view from the living room. However, it is close enough to the ocean so that the sound of the waves will lull you to sleep at night!

DIG YOU OWN HOT SPRINGS ON THE BEACH...REALLY!: During low tide, dig just a foot or so down and enjoy your own hot springs for about four hours! (Don't forget to add a cold water channel to the sea as this IS hot water.

Additional accommodations, including an oceanfront house, rv & camping park, hostel rooms, studio, and bunk house are also located on the five-acre Hacienda de Pamela.

FOR A DIFFERENT TYPE OF VACATION: COME STAY WHILE TAKING CARE OF YOUR MEDICAL & DENTAL NEEDS. Remember that medical procedures by highly qualified doctors & dentists are 40%-60% CHEAPER here than in the U.S. And, doctors here even make house calls!

Labor for auto repairs is also very reasonable....get your car fixed while sunning on the beach.

With local restaurants serving VERY inexpensive but VERY good Mexican & American food (and ones in Ensenada serving everything in between!) it is up to you whether to eat in or dine out!

Groceries, restaurants, & family-friendly bars are close by.

Shopping in Ensenada includes the chain stores: WalMart, Home Depot, Office Depot, Starbucks, McDonald's, Carl Jr's, Costco.

Why Pam Shier chose Northern Baja

After selling real estate in Southern California for many years, I decided Baja was going to be my retirement destination.

I wanted a place I could share with others, that was affordable, that could become what I wanted it to be, and that was located on the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

After extensive searching, I found Hacienda De Pamela & after exhaustive renovation, it is turning into my 'dream house by the sea!'

Sunshine, happy people, ocean, good food.....what more can one ask for? Come see for yourself!

DIG YOU OWN HOT SPRINGS ON THE BEACH...REALLY!: During low tide, dig just a foot or so down and enjoy your own hot springs for about four hours! (Don't forget to add a cold water channel to the sea as this hot water !)

Our 5-acre complex is located an easy 17 miles S/W of Ensenada Baja Mexico, on the road to La Bufadora (La Buf, to the locals). Our other accommodations include: hostel rooms,an rv & camping park, a bunk house, & a large oceanfront house.

La BufADORA is the 2nd largest blowhole in the world have to Roughly translated as “the snorter,” this underwater cave regularly sucks in sea water & spits it out the cave’s top, as much as 60 feet high, drenching visitors. It is a fun experience & you can even kayak CLOSE to the site!

At La BufADORA you can also enjoy a beautiful ocean view while dining on some local fresh seafood or purchase a variety of merchandise & souvenirs from the many vendors lining the street to the blowhole.

MY complex is located right on the Pacific Ocean beach on Ensenada's Bay of Todo Santos (Bay of All Saints) with a view of the island of Todo Santos, Ensenada, and the surrounding mountains.

Although this little casita does not have a sit-down ocean view, you are just a few steps from the beach via your direct, private beach access. You are also close enough to be lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of the waves each night! This lovely Mexican-style casita has a private entry, full kitchen, covered porch (to sit & listen to the ocean or enjoy the birds), and sleeps 5.

We have it all: ocean, sandy beach, mountains, great food & friendly people. Our white sandy beach is great for the beach comber in you or just to sit & enjoy the view. Small waves & no dangerous rip currents allow safe & enjoyable swimming & other water sports. We have SOME beach 'toys' available for your use.

Like to fish? Enjoy awesome fishing of many kinds of local fish year-around. Or maybe you'd rather be IN the water? There are plenty of water sports to pick from, including water skiing, swimming, kayaking, surfing, & scuba diving. Or, take to the about a flight in an ultra lite plane? Take off and land directly on the beach for an awesome view of the area that most don't see!

We also offer horseback riding on the beach or into the mountains; choose by the hour, day, or, perhaps an overnight camping trip?

A short drive to Ensenada offers unending shopping, a beachfront malecon, museums, indoor & outdoor restaurants offering food of many nationalities, a theatre complex, &, did we say, shopping?

A short trip takes you to Baja's renowned & picturesque wine valley where, it is said, the first grapes were planted in 1703! Select locally produced wines & olive oil or dine on locally grown food from humble local restaurants, a gourmet food truck, gorgeous indoor or outdoor settings or from the finest gourmet restaurants/wineries that rival those found in California's Napa wine country.

Take a nature walk to understand the effect of the tides in the estuary at the Estero de Punta Banda Ecological Preserve, a Federally protected dune & estuary preserve located just a few miles from us. While the well marked trails are open to the public, you'll probably have this peaceful & serene place all to yourself.

You can golf at the Punta Banda Country Club less than 10 miles away. And, only 3 miles away is the new & super-exclusive Tiger Woods Golf Course complex now under development; however, at the moment, entry to this complex is by helicopter only for invited guests!

Within a few miles, local food stands & restaurants provide a variety of Mexican and American food. El Nemo is one of the best food stands in Cantu boasting super shrimp tacos, Danny's for burritos, La Bufadora Bar & Grill for great food & specials, Jr's for yummy Thursday fish fingers & excellent Mexican entrees, & Mama Bear's for the best pizza & burgers on the Peninsula.

A few legendary bars in the area include Gordo's (home of the rattlesnake tequila), Baja Mama's with her extraordinary Sunday morning American-style buffet, and La Marina offering a great view of the Estuary.

In the event of a medical emergency,Baja boasts premier emergency & medical services. Medical procedures in Mexico range about 40%-60% cheaper than in the U.S. And, Cruz Roja Mexicana (Red Cross) offers visitors a government-supported low-cost clinic & provides free ambulance service (dialing 066...even from your U.S. cell phone....summons an ambulance & quick medical care for everyone, natives & visitors alike).

Your wish is our command...if it's possible, we WILL find a way to make it happen! Please remember that once your payment is received, all sales, rentals & reservations are final.

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to spend a relaxing weekend. Pam is a wonderfully kind and gracious host. The location of this property is excellent, as it stands on a lovely stretch of beach in Punta Banda. It can get quite warm in the casita if there is no breeze, keep in mind there is no air conditioning. Her three dogs are very pleasant and friendly and will probably welcome you happily on arrival. This property is certainly worth your time and money.

Relaxing Getaway

  • 4 of 5

It was nice being able to lay out without having a crowd of people around you. It's about a 15-20min drive to town so that's the only complaint I had. Not Pams fault... But you have to keep that in mind as you will find yourself driving back and forth.

The casita was clean. Pam was super helpful and accommodating.

I will definitely be returning.

Excellent property with easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5

This place is clean and the beach starts where the backyards ends. The beach is amazing and does not get too crowded so in essence it more like a private beach. Fishing, shopping, horseback riding and restaurants are within close proximity.

Pam is amazing and very hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. She keeps the house and area in amazing condition and does her best to make your stay comfortable. We will definitely be going back again.
