Why John Santoyo chose Northern Baja

This was our first investment property in Mexico and we built it from the ground up. As such, it holds more sentimental value and we still enjoy visiting all these years later. The property is uniquely positioned so that it takes advantage of the ocean view courtesy of the common area located just in front of the house and we are a quick walk to the clubhouse, tennis court or guard shack.

home away from home - awesome view

  • 5 of 5

I loved everything about our trip to Las Gaviotas the home gave us a memorable vacation experience. This was our first stay here and we were extremely pleased and already excited to go back & stay at the same spot! Would def stay here again everything was very nice and clean etc. We all got a lot of use of the balcony; the view of the ocean was excellent so we ate most our meals there. Nice size home never felt crowded. Our group of adults and one toddler were very comfortable here. The layout affords everyone privacy. The owner was very accommodating and answered all of our questions promptly from our initial inquiry and until the end of our stay. Nice place, well kept....good security.....great views!!

We had a good time, the place was as described, no issues. Small thing - water heater a bit tricky but it works. Las Gaviotas is very likely the nicest community on the coast from TJ to Ensenada. Surf break is very good. Our kids enjoyed a large clean oceanfront pool.

Wonderful weekend in Las Gaviotas

  • 5 of 5

We were well informed on the expectations and rules of the home, which made our trip seamless. The house was clean and had everything we needed. It had a lovely view of the ocean and the patio was our favorite place to relax. I would recommend bringing your own toilet paper and paper towels incase the home runs out, and although the weather is typically beautiful down south we tried to use the fireplace one night and it wasn't working. We contacted the host and he replied immediately apologizing, we appreciated how quick he was to respond on a Saturday night. We were even given a late check out on our last day which made our trip feel even longer- really makes a difference for a weekend trip.

The PERFECT Baja Oasis

  • 5 of 5

WOW! You will definitely not be disappointed with this property. From beginning to end, John was the most accommodating, generous, and hospitable host! I've rented other places both on VBRO and ABB and this experience really blew me away. John responded so quickly and was so warm and welcoming just from our initial email exchange. Once the home was booked, his continued communication was all about how HE can accommodate US! I could tell he genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. I was planning a little weekend surf trip to Baja with a few of my fellow San Diego Surf Ladies. Long story short, we didn't make it down our first night due to health and car issues. I didn't want this beautiful home to go to waste so I drove down with my husband and our two daughters (ages 3 and 4). John was again very very accommodating. We had no issues getting through the gate and checking in. I was blown away with how BEAUTIFUL and CLEAN the house is! Some of the other places I've stayed in are very cluttered and hodge podge. John's home is very well kept and I can tell they really take pride in their property. All we brought with us are our surfboards, clothes, towels, extra blankets, and food. Anything you may need is included in the kitchen (note: bring your own ground coffee - there are plenty of filters). We had NO issues with ants - and with two little ones, crumbs were bound to happen. I could tell the bedsheets were freshly washed and there were extra blankets and bedsheets in the drawers. We brought our own blankets just for comfort. The little space heaters in each bedroom were more than enough to keep us warm and comfy throughout the night. Something I was especially pleased to discover (and is totally a first world issue), the showers had excellent pressure and the hot water was just that.. HOT! I've stayed in so many places in Baja and all over the world where it feels more like a drip shower with luke warm water. But the showers were not only CLEAN but just like home! Bring your own towels - beach and shower. The community of Las Gaviotas was so beautiful, quiet, and safe! My two little girls walked around freely and I was not worried at all. There were other young families around as well as the typical younger hipster crowd. We had a party group two houses from us and we were a little worried about the potential noise, but the community really takes that stuff very seriously and the security paroled the streets often to ensure everyone was adhering to the quiet
