We are glad you loved the place and hope you visit us again, soon. The nearby gate you mentioned is closed to renters for security reasons. Without a guard at that gate, anyone could be inadvertently let into the development, which is a fully gated community. Also, renters have lost the access cards to this gate in the past, again potentially causing security issues. We have asked the Homeowners Association to consider placing a guard at the gate to monitor who goes in and out. We are hoping they agree so the walk into town will be slightly closer. That being said, we are still one of the closest houses in Pedregal to the downtown area, the harbor, and beach.
