Way beyond our expectations!
This was our first time to San Felipe, but we had been to Mexico before. This is, by far, the best VRBO we have stayed at!
First, the hosts (Gayle and Mike) were outstanding to work with, answered every question, and even gave us a little personal tour of the best places to go. Second, the condo was amazing! Not only did it have beautiful views of the beach, but it was nicely decorated inside as well. I couldn't imagine a more comfortable place (with great air conditioning!). Also, it is stocked with everything you will need (except food - which is easy to buy at the local grocery stores). If you prefer to go out, Mike and Gayle know all of the best places to eat...and they were 100% right. The seafood is particularly great (and cheap!).
Our only complaint is that it was so quiet and comfortable in the condo, we seriously had a really hard time getting up and leaving to go anywhere else! Oh, and the soft, sandy, warm-water, beach itself is just a few steps away.
If you are looking to have a romantic, relaxing, easy get away, while also discovering the less-touristy "real" Mexico (which is way more firendly and safe than the media would have you believe) this is the place to stay - hands down!
Just one warning: If you have never been to San Felipe before, the 2.5 hr drive from the Calexico border is pretty desolate - with long stretches of straight road and nothingness. It's no problem once you realize that it is safe and friendly out there, but it can be a little lonely if you travel for the first time on an "off" day for other tourists. The road itself, however, is well-paved and most of it has at least some cell service (which is helpful for translating the interesting road signs).
In short, we had a great time and this place is highly recommended!!!
Plenty of things to do here, beachcombing, kayaking, hiking, tacos, margaritas, malecon, valley of giants, crystal beach, hangglider, swimming......
