About Leslie Brockett

I am a film maker and surfer who loves to travel. This is my favorite place to write. The serenity is like no other. And when im ready for adventure there is some around every corner here.

Leslie Brockett purchased this house in 2005

Why Leslie Brockett chose La Misión

I have traveled the world and have found the people of Baja to be some of the warmest and most welcoming. There is a deep appreciation for life, community, family, food, art and culture. There is a freedom there rarely found in states. An expansiveness that elevates and refreshes you. I can truly feel the magic in the air.

What makes this house unique

Peace, quiet, adventure, fine food, fine wine, fine tequilla ;), nature, nature, nature, surf, surf, surf. I do some of my best writing at that house. Love feeding the horses outside my front door, walks to the beach, art shows, tango classes, visiting with our fun eclectic neighbors, having them over for dinner or going to see live music. There is always something to do without obligation. Sometimes its hard to leave at all because the house is so very cozy. Just sitting outside in the hammock, overlooking the estuary, amidst my garden is pure bliss.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at Leslie's casa in the hills. The directions were easy to follow, and we arrived with no trouble, and pretty quickly from San Diego. Be prepared to use your best Spanish when talking to the guards at the gate, as they don't speak much English. The house was still being cleaned when we showed up, but we checked everything out, met Leslie, left our bags, called a cab and headed for the beach. We had transportation arranged for a day of wine tasting, but other than that we used cabs as we were indulging in the local tequilas and cervesas, and nothing was walking distance. The bedrooms were comfortable and had great views. Three bathrooms was a dream come true for a house full of girls trying to shower and get ready in the morning. We only wish we had more time to hike and explore the area. If you bring popcorn, like I did, prepare to pop it over the stove - there's no microwave, and we couldn't find many utensils. The kitchen is small, but we ate out during our stay, so it wasn't a factor for us. I would definitely return and spend a few more days!

Adorable house with fantastic views!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the property were spectacular and the neighborhood incredibly peaceful and quiet. The house itself was very cute and spacious. We especially loved the larger bedroom upstairs which was beautifully decorated and offered the most amazing view of the ravine and hills. We very much enjoyed our stay and thank you again for your prompt reply and hospitality!
