About Karen Melby Teerlink
I enjoyed overseeing the construction of Villa Mirasol in 2000. We had a fun time in Guadalajara gathering lovely furnishings for the Villa. I love managing Villa Mirasol and working with my staff in Mexico. Sergio our house manager will greet you on your arrival and help you settle into the villa. America does a wonderful job as our Chef if you choose to order this service ahead. We give each guest individual attention to make their vacation memorable. Villa Mirasol is my favorite spot to visit. We are currently doing a charity project for the near by Boarding School/orphanage. There is a great way you can help. Bring your used clothing to donate to the children of poor rural farmers in the surrounding area. All sizes up to adult. Just bring them with you and give them to Sergio and he would be happy to deliver them to the school. They are always in need of cleaning supplies, and school supplies if you would like to do a little more. This school makes it possible for the children of the ranchers to attend school. They are too far away to make the journey to school everyday. So their parents drop them off on Monday and pick them up on Friday. There is a great need in rural Mexico. It is a chance to make a small difference. Thanks Karen

Why Karen Melby Teerlink chose Ensenada Los Muertos
The beach is the real draw here and the house is a bonus, . . . a wonderful bonus! We have been coming to the Baja for years. We loved the area and remember one of our first flights to the nearby Punta Pescaero. There is where we fell in love with the people, the Sea of Cortez. When this project was developed were were awestruck by how beautiful the bay was. This property is unique because of it's peaceful location. It is far away from the crowds. Sometimes when you are on a stroll down the beach you might find you are the only one there. The furnishings are delightful, really Mexico and made for comfort. I love to sit on the patio by the pool under the shade palapa to view the ocean and feel the breeze.
What makes this Villa unique
To be able to have your own home on the beach with your own private pool in such a tranquil setting is unprecedented. Leave the crowds behind and renew yourself with a visit to Villa Mirasol.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
This location will exceed all expectations and the house and staff are phenomenal. We had a full crew of small kids, 3 couples and a teenager - everybody loved it. Total success.
Luxurious property on a wonderful quiet beach
We had a glorious stay at the Villa Mirasol. It's a huge house, much bigger than it appears in the photos. 5 big bedroom suites and a very comfy living room area. The views from the property are incredible, it overlooks a beautiful, empty beach which has good snorkeling on the right hand side. Lots of things for the kids to do, there's a ping pong table and a restaurant next door that has shuffle board and pool tables. The staff are lovely, very helpful and friendly, the house keeper's wife and sister made us very high quality, delicious breakfasts and dinners. The swimming pool and hot tub were also fantastic. We loved the set up for having a fire on the sand, and sat outside one night and watched the incredible stars. Tons of thoughtful little touches, they've really thought of everything! The only downside were the mosquitoes, but we kept all the doors shut which helped and they provide lots of bug spray. All in all, a fantastic place to rent, we will definitely return!
Thank you for your nice review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I agree with you the views are wonderful. Our staff loved having you visit. They enjoyed meeting you. America is a good cook I agree! I love doing the bonfire on the beach too. Some seasons have less bugs. We would love to have you return anytime. Thank you kindly
The photos do not do this place justice. The property is just over-the-top beautiful. It is secluded. The view from the patio, over the pool, down the beach, to the ocean, is breathtaking. And you have it all to yourself! Actually, there is a wonderful bar next door, but we didn't even notice it and didn't know it existed until 3 days in to our trip! And that was only because one of my friends wandered off to explore. The villa was very comfortable - each room has it's own entrance, bathroom, and air-conditioning. It was so hot during the week of our stay, but we spent everyday alternating between the pool and the ocean. We couldn't have asked for better house staff. We were not expecting the service they provided. YOU WANT THEM TO PREPARE MEALS FOR YOU. This is not a place to pinch pennies. The house is kind of far away from everything. If we hadn't opted for the meals, we (16 adults) would likely have been eating chips for 5 days. The meals were DELICIOUS - homemade Mexican food doesn't get any better. They even made us lobster one night. And made dessert every night. Sergio, the house manager, was the perfect balance of being present but out of the way. He was always there when we had questions or needed anything (like more beer - he drove out to the store for us!), but never imposed. He made sure to check in with us daily to ask about our plans for the following day. He communicated with Palapas Ventana, the sea adventures company, for us. Palapas Ventana came and picked us up at our beach to take us snorkeling for a day! Sergio also helped a few of us set up horseback riding. He asked if we'd be interested. We said yes! On the chosen day and time, 3 men showed up to our beach with 3 horses! As indicated in my subject line, MIND BLOWN.
One hang up about the villa were the directions getting there. Google maps doesn't quite know where the property is, though it gets you most of the way there. Once you get beyond entrance of the community, you're driving down a sandy, windy road that has lots of unmarked forks. Maybe both sides take you to the same place and it doesn't matter?
The other minor thing - for some reason, use the kayaks was free, but use of the paddleboards was pretty darn expensive. It's a silly detail, but strange. Just can't imagine why this would be.
99.9% AMAZING. We have all promised to go back, hopefully on an annual basis, for our Villa Mirasol Reunion.
Thank you for the fabulous review! I am so glad you had such a wonderful time at Villa Mirasol. I can’t wait to share your review with the staff. They will love hearing your words. I also love the setting for Villa Mirssol. The beautiful beach is such a relaxing spot and yes having it to yourself is amazing Sergio our house manager told me he enjoyed your groups visit. I also love America’s cooking her flan is my favorite
The kayaks are fun we are glad we can provide them for the guests. The stand up paddle boards were expensive to purchase and get to Mexico and they are much more delicate than we thought they are damaged easily. We will think about restructuring our rental price. Thanks for the note. We would love to have you return anytime to Mirasol. Hasta Pronto Karen and Staff
Wedding in Marisol
This was my second trip and wow it was better than the first. Great spot to have a wedding with all family and friends. The beach and sand perfect. The pool always clean and the hot tub soaked away a soothing day in the sun. You can take snorkel trips or go right out in the bay, tons of coral and tropical fish. For the adventurers out there try a day out fishing for Marlin. I caught a trophy fish 2nd week of May. The fishing is great. The staff is awesome, food even better and with air conditioning, WiFi and satellite TV you will feel at home when the sand gets washed off in the 5 full bathrooms. I will pay for many many more trips here, favorite spot in Mexico!
Thanks for taking the time to review your Villa Mirasol experience. Our staff was so happy for you and your wonderful wedding there on the dune overlooking the sea. We are so glad you enjoyed your time there. The marlin you caught was amazing! We would love to have you return anytime.
thanks Karen & Staff
Impossible to beat this
What a stunning setting! We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. Kids were entertained by the pool, hot-tub, beach, sand, and fire-pit. Surprised to find spectacular snorkeling just off the beach including coral and all sorts of tropical fish. Chartered a fishing boat which picked us up right at the property. Chef America and Vicky cooked for us a few times (they also bought the groceries and did the dishes!). Sergio took good care of us and even made a couple trips to the store to pick up a few things we needed.
Secluded, quiet location but still walking distance to two restaurants. We will be back.
Wonderful!Si glad to hear that your entire family had such a great time. We are all glad that you joined us in our little paradise
The anorkleing is great! Glad you took advantage of that. We would love to have you return anytime!
The Bay of Dreams!!!
Our stay at Villa Mirasol was a dream. We have never been on a more fun, relaxing, exhilarating, vacation. From snorkeling, walking on the (empty) beach, to catching a 35 pound Dorado on the Sea of Cortez, the vacation made us want to return again and again. Photos cannot do the idyllic setting justice. With two great restaurants close-by and the option of in-house cooking (my recommendation), Villa Mirasol leaves no detail unattended. We will return as soon as possible!
Thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We enjoyed having you visit. We would love to have you return.
Villa Mirasol resides in the Bahia de los Suenos gated community. Apart from the hustle and bustle quiet and tranquil. Mirasol is right on the beach. It is a place to relax. The waters are calm, with a little surf sometimes. We can help you book Deep Sea Fishing, a day snorkel trip to the island or learn to Free Dive and Spear Fish. There is an old Spanish Dock at the end of the Bay that you can walk to. It has the remnants of days gone by when the Spaniards were mining Silver at Bahia de los Muertos.
Breakfast overlooking the beach just got better. When you book your vacation for Jan, Feb or March, just mention 'free Breakfast' and our Chef will prepare a luscious breakfast for your entire group on your first morning at the Villa.
