About Pablo González

My wife Fernanda and I where missionaries out of the country, now we are back in México.

Why Pablo González chose Ensenada

We decided to get this property to have an income and support other missionaries in their work. Also we like to use it to have getaways, church retreats, guest speakers etc…

What makes this house unique

"La Casa del Abuelo" is very centrally located, being right in front of the beach and very close to Down Town.

With a porch overlooking the ocean we really enjoy the lovely sunsets we can admire every evening.

Nice home

  • 4 of 5

The home was great, but I just have a suggestion, please upgrade your kitchen ware and some other items like paper towels and toilet paper to be available to the guest.

and won't hurt to check out the shower sewer. In general our staying was fun. :D

It's was our first time visiting ensenada &I must say I was a bit nervous at first but it was pretty easy to get there coming out of arizona! We came out here for my fiances birthday weekend &I had made a request with the owner to see if they would set up a lil bit of birthday things up for him &they completed it for me! He really wasnt expecting that! The home was a bit difficult to find since I didn't know we had to go thru a wooden gate but I found it after going in circles about 10 times lol the home was clean &felt very welcoming..the view was great I didn't mind the Avenue much. The casa had everything we needed we felt secure there was &mini store within walking distance that was a plus! The only upside was the kitchen has ants so WATCH YOUR FOOD!!! &the refrigerator leaked inside at night which really sucked cuz some of our food had to be thrown away also the toilet got clogged very easily! So when they say don't throw toilet paper down the toilet DON'T DO IT!!! We didn't use the 3rd bedroom but it could use some more cleaning especially around the windows. The 2nd bedroom with the bunks smelled &the carpet felt gross I'm not sure if it was mold or not but the carpet could be changed throughout the home. Overall we would stay here again those minor things won't stop us I'm glad we chose LA CASA DEL ABUELO for our first time visiting ensenada it was a great stay! Oh one more thing I would recommend to bring your own towels to shower since the ones they provide don't feel or smell clean.

Great hospitality, good location, and a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed at "La casa del abuelito" for spring break 2017. It was surprisingly homey and comfy compaired to other places perviously booked. It was a perfect distance from the usual touristy downtown. We were able to uber downtown for only $ 2.50. The beach view is beautiful and breathtaking from the back patio. It is a secured residential community with a perfect balance of tourist and local residents. It was easy to find but hard to get into without knowing that there was a sliding wooden gate that only opens with a clicker (which we recived upon arival) So we parked outside on the street and walked in thru the side gate which is always supervised by a watchman. Our host were super hospitable, a husband and wife team. They did a walk thru with us, told us all the good restaurants to eat at, what food carts are the best, where to change money currencies and best place to shop for cheap. We were very pleased with the cleanliness and presentation of the 2 room/2bath. Its not a 5 star hotel setting but it is a homey comfortable place to stay. Bedding had nice clean matching linen on a comfotable matress, plenty of towels, dishs, cooking ware, nice home decor, pleanty of space for kids to play, seating for eating and living space and wifi was excellent.

The best part of this trip was the view!! With a lit up carnival at night and the sunset on the beach right across from us we couldnt miss one sunset while staying here. Access to the beach is walking distance across the street. We went to the Country bar cantina and it felt like a locals spot. The manager called to recommend a trampoline spot "brinca" (jump)right down the street, walking distance. It was very affordable and all the kids and some of the adults in our group had a blast.They also had "miches" right outside the entrance that served us the best bloody beer you have ever tasted.

Over all I would recommend this place for anyone that is looking for a comfortable home to vacation in away from the busy downtown.

If I would have to mention a negative it would be shower water temp. Which im sure is not the owners fault. Warm water is limited so keep that in mind if you have your heart set on taking a warm long shower...not in Ensenada...basicly anywhere you stay.
