About the property

5 bdrm/3.5 bath near 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 exploring south of the border, MountainTop Hacienda is in the ideal location.

MountainTop Hacienda, located in the Bellavista (Beautiful View) neighborhood, is a great getaway and 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 five 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.

Absolutely loved the house. Can't Wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say what an absolute delight it was working with Kenny the property manager. He was always prompt and professional with his communication and he was absolutely FULL of suggestions, tips and information. The house itself is absolutely stunning also and immaculately maintained. Even though we came to experience Ensenada we almost didn't want to leave the property because of how comfortable it was. We felt 100% safe and secure with our gated parking and waking up with the windows open and the birds singing was heavenly. I honestly can't say enough good things and would love to be able to come back every weekend! Will definitely book again.

The whole experience was amazing. Kenny was very pleasant and if you had any questions or concerns he was just a phone call or text message away. I have family in Ensenada so, when they came to visit we decided to have a barbecue outside and we were all just breath taken by the view the home had. The house was very spacious with more than enough rooms to spare. I cannot express enough how easy Kenny made the whole experience and I would definitely would recommend this home!

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.
