I am a surfer, so I initially went to Club Marena for the legendary Point Break out front, but I was shocked by the luxury of the accommodations when I walked into the place for the first time. My wife, Anna, decided I was a keeper when I removed her blindfold on the 9th floor balcony overlooking the stunning panorama of the rugged Baja coastline before her. She was expecting “Baja” utility and instead she got “La Jolla” sumptuousness. Photos don’t do the place justice. The feel of the place is sole quenching happiness. We love to enjoy the sunsets on the balcony with a margarita watching the surfers carve and whales, dolphins and seals play.
The unit is over 2,600 square feet, so with only 2 bedrooms, everything is over-sized. The kitchen has everything you need if you choose to cook at home, though we look forward to eating out as much as possible in the incredible restaurants of Rosarito, Puerto Nuevo, Ensenada and everywhere in between. We took my brother and his wife on our first wine tour in the wine country just south of Ensenada last year. It was a great day trip and a wonderful time. In Ensenada, you can just walk around and shop, bar hop and eat or you can go whale watching or sport fishing.
The unit’s giant balcony is over 30 feet wide and has a gas barbecue. We are decorating with Mexican painters from Remedios Varo and Frida Kahlo to local artists. The living room has a 50 inch 3-D television with a DVD/BluRay player, 250 Dish Network channels and a stereo with iPod dock. There is also wireless internet.
The enormous master bedroom has a balcony overlooking the ocean. It has a king size bed, Jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, flat screen television with a DVD player and 250 Dish Network satellite channels.
The second bedroom is huge with a king sized bed as well as 2 queen-sized self-inflating blow-up mattresses, its own bathroom and a television with DVD player and satellite channels.
Club Marena has two pools, each with a hot tub. Our favorite is the kid-friendly pool near the gym which has a pool table. The pool on the point is technically the 'owners' pool and renters are sometimes asked to limit themselves to the other pool. I have never used the 'owner's' pool so I can't really say. There are two tennis courts right outside the unit for your enjoyment. In the unit there are tennis rackets and boogie boards, some floating noodles for the pool, as well as an assortment of wet suits in various kid sizes, as our kids have out grown them over the years. There is a separate laundry room with washer and dryer and cabinets full of towels. The unit has an assigned covered parking space as well as visitor’s spaces if you have more than one car.
Fell in Love with it for the surfing, but we stayed because we missed it every time we left.
Bob & Anna purchased this condo in 2005
The pictures can't do it justice! The Safety and Security of the 24/7 Guard Gated Compound. You can bring in your own food and never leave the resort or do like we do and use it as a base and day trip while you look forward to coming home to nest.
World Famous Surf Break plus the Luxury that had Russell Crowe staying here during the filming of Master and Comander: Far Side of the World
This was our second visit at Club Marena (two years in a row post Xmas) and wow...I totally made the right decision in choosing this unit over others. Compared to the unit we rented last year, this was one made it incomparable. We very much appreciated the local art but most importantly, things were: clean, well organized, and comfortable. Plenty of clean towels, linens, etc. Did I mention clean? I so appreciated that. View was amazing (as usual) and we even saw whales this time! Only slight negative was the construction adjacent to the property and the workers whistling at us every time we went to the pool/beach. Surf was epic, saw incredible sunsets, ate incredible food (we didn't use the kitchen at all except to make eggs and coffee) and made a side trip past Ensenada to stay at an amazing glamping place called CuatroCuatros. Can't recommend that place enough. Did an afternoon zip lining tour that was awesome! Bob and Anna - I will DEFINITELY return. Can't wait.
I have been going to Club Marena for years but our regular place was unavailable, Anna and Bobs place is clean comfortable and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The location is centered between Rosarito and Puerto Nuevo with a great surf break, pools, jacuzzi's and club house. Great security and well maintained grounds.
Anna was a joy to work with before and after our stay and we will definitely stay there again.
My husband and I had a wonderful stay here! Beautiful views from the balcony, sound of the waves, very relaxing!!! The condo is gorgeous! It is very comfortable, clean, and has nice extras like good music cd selections, dvds, books, along with excellent wifi and satelite t.v. It was so quiet there, especially at night. Security was excellent and friendly. Anna so nice to work with from the booking to following up about our stay. We will definitely be back!!
I hosted a few friends down at Club Marena a few weeks ago and I must say everything was perfect. The view from the balcony is breathtaking. Everything was spotless and security was on top of everything. Great stay!
The owners are great! Very nice and responsive. Booking and arrival were easy. The condo is beautiful, clean and very comfortable. Security is always present. Highly recommend it!
When we picked Rosarito to celebrate my wife's birthday, we wanted to make sure we had the perfect location as a "home base." We were not disappointed! This condo is absolutely fantastic. The views and sounds of the ocean made waking up a new experience. Not only was the condo in perfect shape, but working with Bob & Anna was so easy. They made themselves available whenever I had any questions and provided recommendations for activities that will now be part of our itinerary when we have a return visit (particularly taking time to go to Baja Wine Country and Trevista Winery). Typically there's a bit of apprehension when you make arrangements for your accommodations, but Bob & Anna made it so simple and worry free. I highly recommend this property and working with Bob & Anna.
One of Baja's most famous surf point breaks is right outside your balcony. We spend hours watching the surfers carve. The photos just can't tell you how beautiful this place is. The restaurants in Puerto Nuevo, Ensenada, and Rosarito are some of the finest in Baja, From tacos at Tacos El Yaqui or venison and Margaritas at El Nido in Rosarito to Lobster dinners in Puerto Nuevo, you will have some of the best food of your life. There are day trips to whale watching or sport fishing in Ensenada and a delightful wine tasting tour through the wine country.
