About the property

220* Views, White Water, Wave Break, Point 4br Courtyard House In Las Gaviotas

It is hard to describe the magic you immediately feel when you enter the courtyard of this gracious home. You are at once embraced by the warm inside surroundings while simultaneously being surrounded by the dramatic sea you can view from every room.

A shot of tequila is often found at wonderfully inviting courtyard bar.

Each of the four bedrooms have a "head on pillow/in bed" white water ocean view. Crashing waves lull you to sleep in every room.

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.

When you inquire about booking, please describe your group including gender, ages and if you are a part of a larger multi house group, a wedding, large family gathering, or other event, so we can help you determine if this is the right property for your Las Gaviotas vacation.

This is by far the best experience our group has ever had at Las Gaviotas. The house is absolutely stunning, with the perfect location and all the amenities you could ask for. Great response from the owner, he made everything very easy, couldn’t have asked for more!

Place was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary here with adult children and grandchildren, and there is something for everyone. Courtyard was great for dinners in. Outdoor fire pits, hot tub made evenings outside terrific. House is roomy, well-stocked and fun. Robert is a great host and Jim is always around if you have questions. Kids loved beach and pool.

Spectacular home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best home to rent in Las Gaviotas! More than enough room for our large family and the views are breathtaking. The owner communicated really well from booking to departure. We appreciated his attentiveness. The property manager, Jim, is so helpful and gracious. We can't wait to return for more surf, bonfires and FUN!

Best House in Gaviotas

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at #8 and we loved it even more than the first time. I didn’t think that it could be better but Robert has made a few improvements since 2016 and the house is magnificent. Two families with 4 adults and 5 kids in tow and we had more space than we needed. So luxurious with the ocean and the ambience and the view...oh, the view. Thank you, Robert. Can’t wait for our next stay.

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!
