Jean Claude and Martha Berger purchased this house in 2008

Why Jean Claude and Martha Berger chose Mexico

We choose this area because the weather is mediteranean, near perfect and we love long walk on the beach. owner wife is from Mexico and bring with her the Mexican flair and touch

Alma de Salina property is an Ocean Paradise, 1 hour from San Diego, it is half way between Rosarito and Ensenada, a short highway drive to the Guadelupe Valley, Mexico's finest wine Country. our climate is averaging 70 degrees all year round and winters are mild. this is the main reason we bought this property to avoid the Arizona scorching summer heat where we also run a B&B called Le Rendez-Vous B&B.

You will enjoy for pennies wave crashing onto the beach, take your expresso on the sandl, lucky you...

Outstanding value.

Excellent beach front house

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious beach front house with a perfect location. We enjoyed all house amenities and having a sand beach in front of the house is what makes this house a great vacation place.

A little piece of heaven in Baja

  • 5 of 5

The property is accurately listed. It was being cleaned when we arrived so we went to get some dinner and returned to find it all spotless.

Alex and Ana are on site to help with any needs. There was a plumbing issue when we arrived that they got a plumber to fix. Nice folks.

My brother and I took our entire families to this beautiful home on the beach. It was no easy feat finding a place that could accommodate 26 (grandparents/parents/kids). The kids played constantly on the beach just steps from the patio. They especially enjoyed a small wind and wave protected cove a short walk from the house. The adults loved the waves out front. We surfed, paddle boarded, swam, flew kites, rode horses, scoured the moonlit beach for grunion, roasted marshmallows over a fire pit, made a couple trips into Ensenada, and ate at different restaurants up the coast each night. All felt it was one of the funnest vacations ever. We hope to repeat it someday.

Nice new house

  • 3 of 5

The house is really nice, everything like new but a few issues. There is an "out of service jacuzzi" in the main room. Only one towel par bath. No water at all two days. I was in the middle of the shower covered with shampoo and soap all over my body and suddenly no water....

Owner's Response: Mr Federico Burquez from Hermosillo, Sonora. Mexico As you may know we have not been fully paid from your stay, the payment is still pending after over a month.( I have the feeling we will never get paid) on the top homeaway pay you back your security deposit on a payment you never made, about that, pretty good. Property owners be careful. how on the top of all this you have the guts to complain about the number of towels in the bathroom, you stay 3 days with over 20 guests and we are still waiting for your payment, you send the first payment by credit card and you cancel the next day Any owner please be careful, payments made through Homeaway are not secure at all. We are very disappointed with this guest Mr Federico Burquez I dont know who is most to blame. Mr and Mrs Berger

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Information about the property was mostly acurate, however, I believe that the map provided on the VRBO site is a map of the Bajamar Golf Resort, located a couple of miles down the road, rather than La Salina. The home is quite well built, roomy, and comfortable. Excellent for large groups such as family or company gatherings. Being located next to the surf is very enjoyable and pleasant. The beach is excellent, however, you need to walk around the rock surf protective wall to get down to it. Security is excellent, and the live-in caretakers provide any needed assistance and advise. Within easy driving distance to Ensenada and the Guadaloupe wine region for site seeing and excellent restaurants. Also Bajamar has a very good restaurant, bar, and golf course that you can go to, by informing Bajamar's security where you are going and getting directions. The golf course has 27 holes is next to the ocean with beautiful views.
