Bellavista House Rental Photos and Description

5 bdrm/3.5 bath near beaches, downtown and wine route with spectacular view!

Whether you are in town for the famed Baja races, the surfing, the proximity to the Valle de Guadalupe wine region and vendimia festivals or just a scenic holiday south of the border, MountainTop Hacienda is in the ideal location.

MountainTop Hacienda, located in the Bellavista neighborhood, is not just a great getaway but a brilliant expression of tasteful architecture and decor high above Ensenada. Every detail of this traditional home is custom made with extraordinary materials and craftsmanship. Fits comfortably 10 people.

The residence seamlessly blends timeless architectural styles and is decorated with modern furnishings and elegant artwork. This multi-level haven encompasses approx 3,500 square feet and features four bedrooms, three full and two half baths, media/recreation, gym and office. Located just 5 minute walk from downtown (going down!) and bordered by open space that provides privacy yet has open views of the city and bay below as well.

It is genuinely a retreat where you can fully disconnect from the outside world and have a fabulous family reunion in the heart Ensenada; you'll be 30 minutes from Mexico's wine country in Valle de Guadalupe, where throughout the year, the region hosts retreats, workshops, culinary events, conventions and open-air concerts featuring major national artists in local wineries; and for 3 weeks in August, the vendimia (harvest) festival is non-stop!

With weather you can enjoy all year-round, the residence features beautiful landscaping, porches, patios and terraces that are perfect for entertaining. We provide secure off-street parking, flatscreen TV, fireplace and wireless internet access; a gourmet kitchen and everything neatly placed in magnificent custom cabinets; an inviting dining/living area is full of elegance and style. Windows expand the dramatic views and the patio doorway leading to the large outdoor deck. The BBQ grill is ideal for relaxing dinners if you choose not to go out.

With clean lines and design details rarely seen, top material throughout the house, the residence is ideal for entertaining, family gatherings and just minutes from the ocean, Valle de Guadelupe and downtown Ensenada. MountainTop Hacienda can be enjoyed year round.

The Neighborhood

Much Better Than The Best Hotels

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I did the Rosarito to Ensenada bike ride and because I had favorable experience with VRBO, we rented a home in Ensenada for the weekend. That turned out to be brilliant. While we were only 3, the home could easily accommodate 10 people, so we each had our own spacious suite. The home was spacious, beautiful, clean, with excellent amenities, and a world class view of Ensenada. But the piece de resistance was the property manager, Kenny. He guided us to the property, made us comfortable, provided outstanding guidance to points of interest including restaurants, and was just a classy, gracious, guy yet never intrusive on our privacy. A truly wonderful weekend. We're all planning on returning with our wives for an extended wine country trip.

Great home with beautiful view - perfect jumping off point for visiting the Valle and Ensenada

  • 5 of 5

First off,

The house is a jewel on the hill and provides an amazing view of Ensenada. It's spacious with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. Please don't forget you are in Ensenada, so don't expect the neighborhood to look like the streets back home (some other houses and the streets are in need of lots of TLC). Remember, this is Mexico! All the locals we met were friendly and we always felt safe. We fit 4 cars in the gated parking the home provides. There is no AC in the home, which was not a problem for us even though it was warm during our visit because the evening breeze cooled the home easily.

You will definitely want to drive or Uber to town, walking would be difficult and I wouldn't recommend it (but we had no problems just driving to town and it took <10 minutes).

Also let me say that Kenny was just about the perfect host. From meeting us at a nearby grocery store to make sure we found the house, to arranging a private wine tour, to helping find (and coordinate) a chef to cook an amazing meal for us all at the house, he was always there when we needed him and the whole trip went perfectly smooth. I highly recommend this home for larger groups who both enjoy the finer things and can also embrace the charming rusticity that is Ensenada and the Valle.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented Mountain Top Hacienda for a friend's wedding in Ensenada. This place by far exceeded our expectations. The photos are beautiful but nothing like experiencing it in person. We went with a big group. 10 of us stayed in the house and we're beyond comfortable. We invited an even larger group to come over one of the night we were there and there was plenty of room for all. Kenny was extremely helpful and made our trip awesome. I would definitely recommend Mountain Top Hacienda!

Awesome rental

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous say at this house. 10 of us went down to Ensenada to enjoy Vendimia in the Valle de Guadalupe. This house was perfect for us. Kenny was very responsive and helpful at all times. There was ample security at the house, and plenty of room to park 3 cars behind a locked and enclosed gate.

The view is to die for. We spent two evenings around the huge outdoor table and around the fire pit.

Great property for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

This property and our stay exceeded all expectations. Owner Kenny was very attentive to our needs and he had plenty of recommendations for us. He definitely has a great knowledge of Ensenada and all that she has to offer. The house itself provided us with plenty of space for ten large guys and we never felt as if we were on top of each other. Sleep arrangements worked out great for us well.

In the end, we highly recommend this property for large groups that plan to stay and vacation near the city center as well as visiting the up and coming wineries that are in the area.

Great house, great views!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved staying at this house! It's large, clean, and has amazing views! It's great for entertaining with a ping pong table, BBQ, and fire pit. The neighborhood was safe and it was only about a 5-10 minute drive to downtown (but don't plan to walk it, it's definitely up in the hills!). The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because of the barking dogs next door... they could get pretty loud at night! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would go back!

Owner's Response: There is a staircase from the bottom to the top of the mountain, which is exhausting, and I would agree that its really not ideal to use unless you're looking for a serious workout! As for getting down to the city or the beach, Uber is my favorite option; BTW, Uber has recently expanded here in Ensenada as offers Uber XL and Uber Valle now as well as their base line. So now large parties won't have to order several cars! I have taken measures to make sure the dogs are not in close proximity to the house at night. So even if they do start bickering among one another at 4AM, you won't hear it next time! Thanks for the feedback and hope to see you in Ensenada again soon!
