About Kristi Black

“Hecha en Mexico.” Raised in Huntington Beach, CA, I was born into a family of world travelers who in 1952, lived in Brownsville, TX. I can actually say, 'Soy hecha en México” as I was conceived across the border in Saltillo, MX!

An avid traveler herself, I has visited over 30 countries which ultimately led me to explore Baja Norte, and Las Gaviotas. Casa de los Sueños, my House of Dreams was purchased in 2002.

As an established interior designer, my passion for creating environments that nourish the soul, especially using Mexican tiles, was rewarded with the cover and feature article in Baja Lifestyle and Phoenix Home & Garden Magazines.

For those new to Las Gaviotas, you can see the many 'visible signs' of Kristi's gifts to the community - through the tiling of the many fountains; special tiled benches; the back splash in the homeowners lounge, Administration Office, and the beautiful tile work in our Clubhouse. Kristi’s commitment to maintaining the beauty of Las Gaviotas is reflected in her volunteer work on the Design and Beautification Committees.

Kristi Black purchased this house in 2002

Why Kristi Black chose Las Gaviotas

If Las Gaviotas is the Jewel of Baja Norte, then Casa de los Sueños is the Jewel in the Crown. For those who have stayed in Las Gaviotas before, I welcome you to experience what you have missed... Casa de los Sueños!

What makes this house unique

When you open the door, you will say, WOW!! You feel the difference immediately because you're staying in an amazing home, not just a rental. As you explore each room, you will start to notice touches and attention to detail that you had not expected, and nuances that create an atmosphere of never wanting to leave. I welcome you to add your happy vibes to the mix from previous guests who relished their stay. Come be a part of the 'can't wait to come back' crowd. My guestbook awaits!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kristi's authentic Mexican decor is super tasteful and impressive, and the layout of her place (including a balcony with an awesome view) makes for a very comfortable, nice and special setting. Overall, we had an amazing stay and will definitely return!

Fabulous stay! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying here for the weekend. The views from the patio were stunning and we felt safe and secure inside the grounds. Having 3 bathrooms in the house was also a huge plus! We loved the Surf Brewing Company across the street (I took a growler of their homemade kombucha to go!) and went to Ollie's for delicious wood fired pizza. We are already planning out how soon we can go back. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Beautiful Spot and a Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5

This is a special spot. The house is the perfect weekend getaway in this secret paradise. The neighborhood is a friendly, safe place with plenty of spots to hang out and relax. The house itself is lovingly kept and Kristi is the BEST! She has some great advice on fun stuff to do in the area and was very sweet and accommodating. Overall we enjoyed our stay immensely. I would recommend this spot to anyone and we will definitely be back!

Beautiful place. Truly enjoyed our stay. Look forward to coming back.

  • 5 of 5

Typical Day: make a cup of coffee (thx to the coffee maker supplied) and enjoy it on the balcony while taking in the ocean view. Run through the community for an early morning workout. Surf the private beach with an awesome break. Cap the day with a lil jacuzzi and making new friends. Lastly, chilling out while making some local fish tacos and watching a movie from Kristi's movie collection.

This place was marvelous, the pictures don't to justice.... Such a beautiful place, with an amazing view; the place is so relaxing/peaceful.

Our host Kristi, as well, was amazing; super helpful from the moment I booked this place. She had a book of place we could go check out, made sure we had everything we needed and were were settled in good. She even went above and beyond, when I had inquired about washing a white sweater that got a bit dirty. Unfortunately, I didn't have access to the machine, but she so kindly offered to wash it upstairs in her place.

It was an overall, nice experience staying here and we look forward to coming back here again..

Thanks Kristi!

Las Gaviotas a World-Class Travel Destination!

Known as the “Jewel of Baja”, Las Gaviotas is a gorgeous, oceanfront resort comprising of 300 privately owned homes (24 hr. gated security, & walking patrols) located just 40 minutes south of the US/MX border via the beautiful Scenic Road #1.

Many residents live year-round in exclusive Las Gaviotas, making for a “neighborhood” setting brimming with ownership pride. You too, will feel at home as you enter through the gate and pass by the lovingly maintained gardens and common areas. It is a place of incredible beauty with the magnificent Pacific Ocean as its backdrop. No wonder, Fox Studios chose this area to film the movie Titanic, and Master & Commander! Within a picture perfect setting you will be treated to pelicans, dolphins, whales, and unforgettable sunrises and sunsets…and that's just the beginning!

Laze in the sun on our private, sandy beach or under a palapa (umbrella made from palm leaves) while tidal pools beckon further exploration.

The centrally located clubhouse nestled by the ocean’s edge, boasts a heated, Olympic-sized swimming pool and a Jacuzzi big enough for you and friends yet to meet.

If you still have energy or calories to burn, feel free to enjoy our tennis courts, beach volleyball, or jog around the “compass”. One lap = one mile. Save your evenings for memorable sunset strolls along the beachfront promenade to the seagulls serenade.
