For our anniversary weekend we booked all 3 suites (Asian, Mexican, and Garden). Our adult children loved the accommodations (and so did we). On our drive down we stopped at Walmart in Rosarito and bought groceries. The large kitchen in the Asian suite (it has a full sized fridge) was ideal for making breakfast for our group of 7 people. We had plans to go to Ensenada, but the rooftop deck was so amazing that we ended up spending most of our time there drinking margaritas. I got my nails done in a little salon just a few steps down the road. It's housed in a mini trailer and is part of La Mision Hotel. We had a delicious 5 course dinner at Dimitri's La Fonda and enjoyed the out of this world flour tortilla chips and guacamole at Gary's La Fonda. Cathy lives onsite in the main house and it's comforting to know she is close by and ready to help and answer any questions. She is the perfect hostess and has an incredible inn. ( I'm home now writing this review. but still enjoying the trip as I munch on one of the delicious chocolate chip cookies that Cathy made for us.)

Bachelorette Weekend Getaway: I just got back from a two night stay at Cathy's gorgeous AirBnB. I rented all three suites (Asian, Mexican & Garden) for a Bachelorette Party of 6. I was the maid of honor and my bride is a wine lover so she had asked me if we could do a trip to Valle de Guadalupe. I'm going to be honest and say that I contemplated about just planning the trip & not going because I was terrified about the idea of driving into Mexico (cartel stories popped into my mind immediately). But after doing some research I realized it was safe to visit the area of Baja I was going to and Valle is up and coming with many trusted publications encouraging Americans to visit. PLANNING: I have to say I am so happy I found this listing and met Cathy! She MADE the trip enjoyable for me. We decided to stay in her gorgeous house then just make the 35 minute drive into Valle and I'm so glad we did. Cathy as a host is the absolute best! It was almost like having my own travel guide on top of the amazing suites we were renting. Before even meeting her in person she had answered every safety and travel question I had and every time promptly and kindly. She never scoffed at my silly questions like " is it scary to drive back at night?" I think we had about 15 conversations back and forth with questions I had. Cathy also sends you an email with documents that answer many of your frequently asked questions such as "what's close by - restaurants? Shopping?" Or "what can I bring or take out of Mexico" and she gives amazing suggestions for activities. She reserved my taxi transportation (btw Sergio & Abel - the two brothers who we had as taxi drivers were very kind and we always felt safe). She booked our massages and horseback riding (even drove us to the horse stalls and took us back to the house for free!!) GETTING THERE: Super easy. We took a shuttle from SD to her house but the drive across the San Ysidrio border to her place was smooth and easy. Driving on your own by car would be easy too. The toll roads are super smooth and it's a beautiful drive by the ocean past small towns like Rosarito. I think it's great that Cathy also gives you detailed directions with pictures. Her house and suites are tucked in an area next to a hotel so it's very easy to find. (Don't worry, it was very quiet and peaceful even next to a hotel). Took us about 40 minutes from the border to get to her place. BEING WELCOMED: Cathy lives in the main house located under most of the suites, which was nice because it made me feel safe and she was easily accessible if I had questions. She greeted us with delicious home-baked cookies and...

Response from Cathy:
Thank you so much, Mayumi! I'm so glad you and your friends felt so comfortable and secure in our area of Baja. You all were great guests and I'll look forward to seeing you again. By the way, Sergio and his brother loved meeting all of you and it was wonderful that you speak Spanish so well! I'm so glad the trip was such a success. Many thanks again!

We had the best time, relaxing and celebrating my birthday. Cathy is a great host, friendly and easy to communicate. I will definitely go back there. The place is in the perfect location, Restaurants /Bars within walking distance and the beach just a few steps down from the house. The house has been looked after very well and Cathy has a great eye for details. Each studio is colorful decorated with great art and sculptures. Thanks a lot Cathy Sarah

Cathy was the perfect host - detailed, accommodating and courteous! Leading up to the trip she sent additional details on the space, suggested activities, and responded to emails within hours. When we arrived she welcomed us with cheese, crackers, and fresh baked cookies, gave us the keys, and then was hands off for the rest of the trip! The property itself was perfect - separate suites but still had enough common spaces, especially the rooftop deck, which is where we spent most of our time. The mid-level terrace was gorgeous, I just wish we utilized it more. The beach was AMAZING. It was basically our private beach the entire trip. It was a bit rocky and the weather was a bit chilly in April, but the waves couldn't have been more perfect. Cathy has boogie boards, a surf board, and other beach goods to play with. Overall, this was the vacation I needed and I DEF want to return yearly.

Even better in real life! This place was so amazing and my group of 8 had so much fun! There were snacks waiting for us and everything you could need was provided. We got to meet her dogs and they were so cute!! Cathy hooked us up with horseback riding and even our Mexico car ins. We also went wine tasting and ate lobster in Puerto Nuevo. The area is beautiful! Book now! ❤️

Cathy is extremely welcoming and very accommodating. She provided all 3 suites with snacks. And gave us plenty of options on things to do around the area. Her expertise is invaluable. In addition we felt right at home the suites are clean, and very nice. As well as safe!

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.
