Great location right in the beach! Beautiful property. We especially loved the rooftop deck and its ocean view and the easy access to the beach. Location was great - far enough removed from the hustle and bustle of SoCal and TJ but still very accessible. Day drives to wine country and through the hills and along the coast were incredible!

Definitely a must when visiting the area. We arrived to baked cookies, cheese & crackers. Cathy had emailed us a list of suggestions, ranging from restaurants, wineries, and places to visit. One of her suggestions was horseback riding, truly one of the highlights of our trip. The view from the deck was incredible. We grilled and ate dinner out on the deck two nights in a row Easy access to the beach. Walking distance to two good restaurants. Everyone around and staying at Cathy's place was very friendly. Everything provided in the Mexican Suite made our stay more pleasant, we felt like we were in the comfort of our own home. So glad I came across this place. Definitely plan on coming back, my four year old asked plenty of times if we could move in. I honestly can't thank Cathy enough for her hospitality, her beautiful home, & list of suggestions. Perfect getaway! Wouldn't be surprised if my daughter runs away to move in.

I loved the photos of your daughter on Marty's horse. She's such a courageous kid and yes, if she runs away to move in, she (and you both, too) are very welcome! Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

We loved our stay at Cathy's. You can't get any closer to the beach! It's very cozy, and has all the essentials. Cathy is very friendly and sends you a detailed message with great instructions. As an animal lover the highlight of the stay was when I met her orange kitty! He was so cute and actually jumped in our truck when the door was open-little rascal :) thanks Cathy!!

It's one of my greatest pleasures to welcome guests to Casa de los Arcoiris! This area of Northern Baja is so lovely and so calming and relaxing that, when I first visited, I fell in love with it - and I'd love for you to experience the joy of being here, too. When a friend told me about this home, I flew down from the San Francisco area - saw the property on Saturday, and bought it on Sunday! Then I spent over 5 years in renovation and remodeling to turn it into a first class inn where I would be happy to stay! It took a lot of work and a lot of time, but it was so much fun and so rewarding to see it all come together - and now to hear people tell me how much they enjoy staying here is a real pleasure. I'm proud to be told that this is one of the best appointed, cleanest, and friendliest places to stay. I truly believe each guest should have the best, most enjoyable and relaxing get-away - and I promise to do everything I can to make your stay a wonderful, fun-filled, rewarding experience.
