Our Casita is an independent and secluded studio... RIGHT on the BEACH... and close to all dining, surfing, wineries, gorgeous sunsets & starry nights. It is a lover's place to romance, play and have fun.

We are in the beautiful Playa La Mision (La Mision Beach).

Unlike other rocky beaches around us, we have a spectacular sandy beach that is described by our local Mexican friends "as one of the prettiest beaches in Baja" and you will be RIGHT ON IT.

The space
Our Studio (Casita) will charm you the minute you step in. It is as close to camping at the beach, and having your luxury and security, as you can get.
Please note we have another bigger studio on the property "BEACH STUDIO (Crystal) - Playa La Mision" for 2 guests, if you like to bring your friends, or you want a queen size bed, here is the link (airbnb will not make link active, please write it down and look it up):

Waking up in the morning and sipping your fresh brewed coffee while sitting at the deck, enjoying the ocean breezes and the sounds of the waves, and watching the birds, dolphins and what ever swims by, will take you away from the bustling urban life as far as you can imagine...and more...
Our community is surrounded by mountains and the ocean which create a unique and captivating setting. We are a quiet gated community with 24 hour guard in the North section of Baja California, 45 miles South of San Diego border ( Playa La Mision). Located next to La Fonda restaurant and between Rosarito and Ensenada.

Guest access
Summer, Fall, Winter or Spring...you will enjoy our secluded, and often a private sandy beach, and with the adjoining clean, clear and sparkling ocean, you will have a lovely place to play, jog, swim, surf or boogie board, horseback ride, play ball, or just lay around. Don't forget to bring your sun screen.
Start the day with a memorable early morning beach walk (if the tide is out, you can take the beach walk north to the restaurants and have breakfast) Poco Cielo has nice American breakfast, Original La Fonda, or Gary's La Fonda, offer a variety of Mexican breakfasts. And, end the day with watching a memorable sunset at the deck while sipping your favorite wine... maybe you get lucky and see the green flash!
There is a Tamale Lady (Aurora, her husband drives her in a white small car) who comes around Saturday, Sunday and Monday and sells Chicken and Pork Tamale ($1/pc), we love her delicious Chicken Tamales and take some to LA with us, if you are a Tamale fan...don't miss out, and may be bring a small icebox and ice packs to take some home.

45 minutes away is one of our favorite wine valleys (Valle de Guadalupe), the drive is as pretty as the destination. Yumillitious wine and food offerings of all price range. You can find a lot of information on the internet regarding the wineries or restaurants including reviews, photos, and menus, so you can make an early selection to your liking, or you can go the adventure and discover rout.

There are also several places to go dancing on the weekend, Gary's La Fonda is the closest, Ruben may have a band, Splash, and sometimes Baja Calypso. Baja Calypso is at the famous KM 38 surfing spot where you can have a meal at the outdoor terrace while watching the surfers take on the waves.
Also, check out the local art scene through few galleries in the area.
Ensenada has a lot of offerings as well; shopping, budget and fine dining, sightseeing, a big fish market, and few art galleries...And lots of night life.
Always keep in mind that taxi service is available for a very reasonable cost, you can inquire with the guard at the gate, if you are planning to enjoy lots of drinking, it is a good option.

There are few small grocery stores in the La Mision village right south of us, Oscar is one of them, where you will be able to get basic needs.
There are many OXXO stores (similar to 711) very close to our gated community where you can also get basic needs.

Other things to note
Please note that this unit has a trendle type beds, wich is a combination of one regular twin size bed and another twin size bed that tucks underneath for maximum space saving during the day use of the unit, just pull the bed when ready to sleep and voila!! Flipping a coin for who gets which, or switching the experience of sleeping high or low may be part of the adventure!
And if you are worried about romance, just read the reviews of our guests who stayed there..

We also HAVE ANOTHER Studio "BEACH STUDIO (Crystal) - Playa La Mision" on the property with ocean view and a queen size bed, it sleeps 2 (airbnb will not make link active, please look it up): http://abnb.me/EVmg/iP6HTq8uiE
