Each of the four bedrooms have a "head on pillow/in bed" white water ocean view.

This 4br 3 ba home is the only house on the prominent Las Gaviotas point.

It was the first house built in the Las Gaviotas community in 1971 by the original property owner of the whole development.

Because of that it is the best located largest lot in the original complex.

Perfect place for a family celebration!

  • 5 of 5

From the first exchange with Robert prior to booking to the sad day of our departure, we were treated like gold! We celebrated an 80th birthday and Christmas on the same trip and things were perfect. We were blown away by the house, the location (best in Gaviotas for both of these items) and all of the amenities and kindness we received from Robert (and Jim). And last but not least, there was Alexei — whose rule of thumb is simply “ask and ye shall receive”. Alexei can and will make it happen... just trust me on this one.

We will be back and we absolutely would not want or need to stay anywhere else but here. We fell madly in love and can’t wait to go back! Thank you, Robert!!

Beautiful Las Gaviotas Home with amazing views from inside & out. The owner, Robert, was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th Wedding Anniversary in this amazing home with our family. Our children surprised us with a Mariachis band at sunset arranged by Alexei Oregel. Everything we needed to prepare gourmet & casual BBQ meals was there & we enjoyed all of them on patio with panoramic ocean views & huge courtyard. This home is so authentically decorated with so many artifacts to enjoy. Six of our kids & grandkids surf, it was so much fun to watch them from our private patio. The owner was wonderful to work with, answering any questions promptly. This was definitely an A+++ vacation & celebration for all of us!

WOW, by far the best at Las Gaviotis!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Robert for opening your home and allowing us to enjoy beautiful Las Gaviotis. Touring wineries, relaxing on the patio, walks on the beach, shopping, and having Carlos (chef) cook and serve us in the amazing courtyard made it a wonderful vacation. Robert and on site manager Jim met us upon arrival to show us around and answer any questions. Nights sitting on the patio overlooking the ocean....stunning and was hard to leave. Our group enjoyed every moment and we are looking forward to returning.

This property is mind blowing. Beautiful. Location is amazing. The home owner was just great to deal with. All around 13 out of 10. Robert, the property owner, was SO responsive and helped me plan the most fantastic birthday trip for my husband and our friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Robert. And the entire Las Gaviotas community was amazing as well. Everyone made us feel right at home.

Wow! What a get away!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a special home and place. Before we went we connected with the owner several times and he was so helpful! All of his input helped make the trip even better and felt we were at a Five Star Hotel! We truly did not want to leave. Would recommend to anyone this lovely home and it will not be our last trip here! Thank you for an amazing and easy get away!

A picture perfect beach front property.

  • 5 of 5

With every room having its own spectacular ocean view it was tough for the group choose! The master was ideal and had a nice but authentic vibe to it. The house had more patios and outdoor space then we knew what to do with. The exterior really was terrific with a beach front jacuzzi, ocean facing fire pit, the private side patio, and a private interior patio with hanging napa bulbs that was perfect for dinners.

There are plenty of things to do in Mexico but the Gaviotas organizer really did make life easy and entertaining. Our group was able to go wine tasting in the valley, play golf at Bajamar, surf out front, and fish off of Ensenada all in three days.

The whole group raved about it and we hope to come back soon!
