The house and beach were AMAZING and INCREDIBLE. The house is very clean, very spacious and modern. It was wonderful to have the use of a laundry room, 2 large bedrooms and bathrooms. The house is about 5 to 10 minutes away from "downtown" Rosarito and very easy to access. The beach was clean and incredibly private. From Monday to Friday there were only a dozen people or so who walked by during the day. It felt like we had a gigantic private beach to ourselves! It was totally wonderful.
The drawbacks of this place are the following: During the weekend there are a fair amount of people and their trucks and 4 wheelers driving all over the beach. There are also A LOT of stray dogs which often run around in packs which feels a bit unsafe although nothing ever happened to us. There was also an extremely loud house alarm that went off during the day and night for what felt like forever and was impossible to sleep through. And lastly, make sure you are clear when you are supposed to "vacate" the property. The day before we left I confirmed with Sue that we would leave at 1PM. At 11AM the following day she came down to tell me (and my husband and 3 small children) that we were supposed to be out by 11AM. We were completely blindsided by this and I had planned to use the last hour or so to pack, give the kids a shower, clean up, etc. When I told her that I had confirmed 1PM the day before she told me that "it" said" I had to leave by 11AM even though I had no idea where "it" was or what she was referring to. Then, as I totally scrambled to vacate as quickly as possible in the middle of 110 degree weather, she left and her husband said that there was no rush. It was very frustrating.
We stayed at Louis' for 2 nights. The house is nice, very comfortable and fully equipped. With big windows and a terrace right in front of the ocean! The Ricamar complex is very small and since we were there during weekdays it felt like we had the beach all for ourselves.
Louis is a kind host, we had a misunderstanding about the check-out date, but he offered a nice solution, so we left with a good feeling and we'll be coming back on september.
