Big fan of this house and location. I booked this house for five nights with six people over summer solstice. Upon arriving, the property manager greeted us and walked us through the need-to-knows of the house. He provided us with his cell number to reach out if we had any questions.
The house has an awesome panoramic view of the sea and La Bufadora from the top story and excellent views from two bedrooms on the bottom story (we had a perfect view of the sunset every night). The house is right on the cliffs of the water and there are several trails leading to the sea edge. We fished, kayaked, and snorkeled within a kilometer of the house and the fish were plentiful, the water was calm, and the visibility was spectacular. Gahl and the property manager were very helpful and responsive to any questions or concerns we had prior to arriving and very available to any questions we had while staying in the house. The experience at this house was awesome - I'll be back.
Amazing view. Huge house. Extremely remote & 'off the grid.' Tons of space and very eco-friendly. Huge kitchen table, lots of bedrooms, great open living space for family gatherings.
Note: No hot tub, no working grill, no TV/Internet, limited cell-service. Water flow is extremely low on top floors (kitchen).
Response from Gahl:
We got a new BBQ as the guests before trashed it :(

The house was perfect size for 11 in our group. The view was wonderful. Out of 3 bathrooms one did not work. We informed caretaker and said it could be repaired after we left. It was easy booking. Far walk into La Bufadora and road very windy. But we walked and drove anyway. We would definitely go back if time allowed. Bedrooms were spacious in 4 out of 5.
L'endroit idéal pour se ressourcer, magnifique maison, vue exceptionnelle, le paradis perdu et loin de tout. Une impression d'être chez soi, pour notre famille, totale osmose avec le lieu en tout cas. Respect de l'environnement, à éviter pour ceux qui ne veulent pas de contraintes, un peu compliquer pour l'eau chaude mais pas insurmontable, il suffit de lire les notices. seul bémol en décembre pas de chauffage donc un peu frais dans la nuit, mais les journées sont douces. Une envie d'y retourner. Merci à David le gardien des lieux pour sa gentillesse.
This home is so unbelievably beautiful. From the minute you walk in the true work of art front door to your many hours spent on the two patio's watching the ocean, and the sunsets and admiring the stars at night, this house will take your breath away.
Gahl the owner is easy to work with, and Uri the person who takes care of your needs while you are there is awesome.
Only draw back is only 5 chairs to set on in entire house so plan on bringing some folding chairs if you want to sit and relax.
We never ran out of power and the solar was perfect for power.
We will return often as this house is an excellent value for the area it is in.
don't let being off the grid scare you away. if you have traveled in a motor home is about the same on water and power, but this place is size of small hotel.
Quality with affordability.
Thanks, Gahl for letting us rent your home.

My friends and I had a great experience with Gahl and Uri. This is the perfect place to escape to hustle of modern life and relax. The house is beautiful and equipped with the necessities. It's pretty far outside of town, so it's best if you prefer hiking on gorgeous beach cliffs and just taking it easy in the sun, because shopping and bars require a bit of a drive. Definitely a worthwhile adventure,
The house is great. I would stay there again. The directions need more work, specially because we arrived at night. The roads aren't paved and their shape aren't good. It is a good 20min driving in dirt road, on top of the 25 min out of ensenada. But the view is worth it. Driving during the day is easier.
Outdoor Charcoal Grill was all rusty, missing a handle, and it was tricky to use. It wasn't leveled also, and doing hotdogs on an unleveled grill is hard!
THERE IS NO HOT TUB. The amenities is wrong. They have a bathtub, but not hot tub.
Their water pressure was not turing on automatically and I had to manually press and hold it on to build pressure to wash dishes.
The place was clean, and organized.
The garage door was a bit broken, so it was hard to open and close, but nothing bad.
The view is amazing. This is a perfect place to bring everything and don't leave for a weekend. It is far from groceries (30min each way) so plan ahead your stay.
Overall I was pleased and would return.
This is a gorgeous stay. Perfect for a weekend away to relax. The house is super spacious and the town is not to far of a walk away. I highly recommend staying here.
Gahl is an extremely nice and discreet person, an experienced traveler and a most perfect guest. I hope his lectures will bring him back to Zurich soon!
There occured a little booking misuderstanding but we managed well anyway. I still hope that Ghal enjoyed his stay at my place. Friendly guest and very charming, to leave a little flower on the way out! Welcome back anytime - With a little discount;)
Great guest! Very punctual check-in and check-out. Left the place very clean and organized. I would highly recommend anyone to host him. Gahl, you are welcome at my place anytime you are in DC.
Gahl was a wonderful guest, very easy going, considerate and communicative. Any host would be lucky to have him as a guest. I would happily welcome him back anytime.
Gahl is the ideal House Guest. Pleasant, charming and respectful of my space. So, I would not be recommending him to stay anywhere except in my home as the park, shops, and TriYoga are on his doorstep here ...therefore he would not need to stay any place else when visiting London.
During his trip to Zurich, Gahl spend a couple of days at my flat and While we did not have the chance to meet in person, I recommend Gahl as a guest to fellow AirBnB hosts. Clear and quick communication, very straight forward, uncomplicated and respectful with the property. A pleasure to host.
Gahl was a lovely guest and is welcome back anytime!
He also left beautiful flowers which is a very sweet touch:-)
Response from Gahl:

Definitely welcome again
Gahl was such a great guest. He had a very kind personality and left everything spotless. Would love to host him anytime again!
Very good guest, easy to communicate and easygoing. The apartment was left in perfect condition, cleaned and organized. I would gladly accept another request to stay in my apartment again!
