About the property

Casa Roja, Two Plus Two, Wide Angle White Water Ocean Views, Walk To Beach

Three nights minimum. Situated about one hour south of the border San Diego CA, our fairly new One Story property is located in a gated ocean view community, with an excellent mix of custom homes and diverse mix of locals and expats from the USA, Canada and Europe. Located halfway between Rosarito and Ensenada.

Gorgeous white water ocean views, as well as River-and mountain views, make this property truly unique. THE best ocean view in La Mision hillside, generally accepted by all.

Walk to beach (or drive for that matter) without crossing any roads. La Mision Beach is well known for its very wide, quiet and very shallow first 75 yards, so ideal for families with or without kids. Horseback riding on the beach. And of course, lots of choices.

The property boasts a good mix of contemporary and Mexican architecture, design and decor: hand crafted stained glass windows, large custom made hardwood entry doors, colorful Pueblo Style walls and decorations, handmade furniture and wrought iron lamps and decorative items, talavera tile etc. Fireplace in living room, patio with propane line BBQ, no need to schlepp gas bottles, well furnished large kitchen with all cooking utensils and dishes/silverware. Brand new dishwasher too! Patio covered by palapa.

Gated courtyard easily parks two cars (in a gated community) and garage has washer dryer for your convenience when your stay is over one week. Gated courtyard to park! Palapa covered large balcony.

Truly outstanding, cozy arrangements for the well traveled- and discriminate vacationer. Master with King bed and ensuite bathroom (tub and shower), talavera sinks and tile work, tumbled marble shower surround. Guest room with Queen bed and ample storage as well. It won't come better than this. Entertainment: flat screen TV with over 100 channels, incl.HBO, landline phone for local calls only, WiFi internet, JVC sound system with CD library and lots of books and magazines.

Very close to famous La Fonda Hotel/Restaurant and Spa, six other oceanfront restaurants, nightlife in Rosarito and Ensenada, Bajamar Oceanfront Golf Resort, Guaudelupe Valley wine country, Puerto Nuevo Lobstervillage with fabulous and affordable lobster dinners, shopping in downtown Rosarito and Ensenada, fabulous beaches etc. Who says you cannot have it all?

Owner can arrange horseback riding on the beach, with or without photo shoot. We can also arrange wine tours with driver, to wine tastings with or without gourmet dinner, in Guadelupe Valley. We want your stay with us to be unforgettable. Sorry, no pets on furniture or bedding!.

The good news is, the house will be clean, tile flooring only, no carpeting or rugs, good and clean for everybody.

3 Months of Bliss!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay at Alex and Margaret's beautifully decorated and well-maintained house. It had everything I needed, the location is very secure, the view is beautiful, and it is a short drive to some great restaurants (Dymtri's patio is my favorite). Thank you Alex and Margreet for your friendship and support during my 3 month stay - I will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Many thanks Deirdre for your nice comments and review. So glad to hear you considered it three months of "bliss". It was a pleasure having you as our guest for those three months and we did indeed enjoy the great ocean views with you together, from the patio. Also glad to hear you enjoyed the many local and handmade decorations in the house, Margreet is pleased to note you enjoyed her paintings as well. We look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy the views and escape the summer heat from your hometown. Stay well, best, Alex and Margreet

Comfortable home with a great view

  • 5 of 5

The property was just right for our needs for a month-long stay, with plenty of space, two comfortable bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and spacious living area. The house is beautifully decorated with local ceramics and paintings. One surprise was to find that our nearest neighbors were two ostriches.

The beach is a fairly long walk through the residential area, but the walk offers a chance to meet people - some short term people like us, but also many residents, American and Mexican. There are small stores within half a mile, OK for basic needs.

It was a pleasant, relaxing month and we look forward to another stay.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for writing a nice review Ian, we are glad you truly enjoyed your one month stay in our Casa in beautiful Baja. You were great guests to have and we would love to see you book another time. Margreet was very pleased to hear you enjoyed the decorations and the paintings; as you know, she made most of them:-) And you are so right, our community has a great mix of part timers and full timers and locals as well as Americans and Canadians. Good to have you and thanks again, Alex

Secluded, Safe, and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A couple of girlfriends and I had the pleasure of staying at Alex and Margreet's. They were incredibly pleasant to deal with, and did everything in their power to answer all of our questions in a timely fashion. They even went so far as to provide recommendations for places to dine, and enjoy the local nightlife. Our goal was to visit Valle De Guadalupe for wine tasting, and we were able to do just that thanks to Alex and Margreet recommending a dear friend of theirs to drive us around. Their place was absolutely darling. The decor is warm and artsy, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms were well stocked with towels. It was always a pleasure to wake up to the amazing view, and close out our night with cocktails, while chatting and taking in that same wonderful view at night. We all felt very safe, and in good hands with Alex and Margreet. Check-out was also a very quick and pleasant process. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway next to the beach.

Beautiful home with awesome ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great long weekend at Alex and Margreet's home and couldn't have had a better time. The house is very pretty and beautifully decorated with bold colors and awesome artwork (mostly painted by the owner!). The house has everything you need if you plan to cook and the bedrooms have extra blankets and pillows for cooler nights, and it's super clean for the neat freaks out there. We were welcomed by the owners with a bottle of wine for our anniversary which was so thoughtful! The location of the home is really perfect - La Fonda is a few minutes north, the wine region is 25-30 minutes south, as well as Rosarito and Ensenada all within easy driving. We will definitely return to Casa Roja again in the future!

Owner's Response: Soooo glad to hear you and and your family had a great time despite the little surfing mishap with your son.. Margreet is pleased to hear you enjoyed all decorations and artwork. And like you said our location is very close to everything, while still being walking distance to the beach and surf. We look forward to seeing you and your great family again soon in beautiful Baja. Saludos, Alex and Margreet

❤️Home away from home❤️

  • 5 of 5

We were in love with Casa Roja from the moment we entered through the beautiful front door! Clean, quiet, artistically decorated and very comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful in making sure our visit was the best it could be. My only complaint is that our visit was not long enough and we didn't have time to do all the fun things this location has to offer. Hoping to return to Baja in the near future and stay at this lovely home again.

Owner's Response: Margreet was happy to hear you so enjoyed the special colors, decorations and furnishings of our home, she is a retired decorator and talented artist and spent a lot of time selecting materials and well designed appliances, talavera tile, locally crated stained glass, sinks, sconces, lamps etc. for our home to truly make you feel comfortable and a home away from home. So glad to hear you had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed your stay; we enjoyed having you as our guests and thank you again for choosing our vacation rental. We do look forward to seeing you back in beautiful Baja. Thanks again for a great review, Alex
