About Linda Sanders
We have lived here, on and off, for over 25 years and still find it ideal. The weather is great, the ocean is ever changing, the people are terrific and the choices of things to do is never ending. We bought this property as a rental and our eventual home (first we have to pay it off!) and we live just down the street.
Linda Sanders purchased this House in 2007
Why Linda Sanders chose Lengüeta Arenosa
Punta Banda is a perfect family beach area; the beach is shallow for quite a way, the waves are gentle and occasionally even offer something for surfers. Our family has enjoyed vacations here for years and we hope other families can have the same experience. But, this is not just a 'family' house, it's a great place for that reconnection weekend you and your significant other have talked about for ages, it's a fun house to entertain friends, great for house parties (notice, we did not say 'drunken brawls') and it's the perfect place to visit alone when you're stressed out from the normal world. We can feel cares slipping away as we cross the border.
What makes this House unique
We love ending the day with a glass of wine on one of the two the decks overlooking the ocean, going out early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the estuary, bike riding along the beach and watching people just kicking back and enjoying life. The fireplace provides a cozy spot on cooler days, and big glass doors open to allow breezes to flow through on warmer days. The beach is perfect for our grandchildren, who are now ages 4 months to 23 years -- hard to beat that! Dolphins in the evenings, pelicans all day, sea gulls scrapping overhead, little skittering birds along the water all provide entertainment. For some world class meals, Ensenada is close by. Local restaurants come and go and some are perfect for a day after the beach. They currently offer everything from good Mexican food to pizza to fish so fresh that it smiles up at you. If you want to do nothing, there are movies to watch on the DVD player, books galore to read in the 'library' aka the bunk room, and lots of places for navel gazing and contemplation! We are available anytime should you need information or a fast repair or toilet paper or whatever.

This is the second time renting this house. The house and location was perfect. House fully equipped. Our family and especially the children all enjoyed the stay. Definitely looking forward to renting it again.
Beautiful house, wonderful location, nice neighbors
My family and I have been coming to this particular part of Punta Banda for a few years now for summer vacation. This time, we stayed a few weeks. First time at this house. We felt right at home. Linda is very responsive. House is well furnished and comfortable. Nicely laid out and thoughtful. We appreciated the secured parking and outdoor shower. The house has good vibes!
A bit nervous on remote roads. Wife was not happy. After surviving first night she loved it thereafter. Beach was great for kids. Comments matched my expectations. It’s a really nice house on the beach and everything works. Breathtaking views and calm beach. I will be back many more times now that wife feels better about escaping busy city and resort hotels. We regretted spending too much time in Ensenada downtown and wished we had spent more time in the house and beach. Pack plenty food and enjoy the beach and house as much as possible. Mexico is artistic, don’t expect square boxes for houses and air strips for roads. The house is in a very exclusive area but it is also in an area where there are horses and unpaved roads. It’s all part of the beauty of Mexico. Host was great. We had all we needed and very attentive.
Loved having you and seeing you all enjoy my house!! Come back soon!
Loved this place! Our family had a great time and will definitely come back next year.
The property was clean the beach was perfect the weather was beautiful.
Four night stay
Me and my kids had a great time at this property. The beach was beautiful and the sand was so soft. The water was pretty warm compared to California (like Santa Cruz). It wasn’t very deep and my kids were able to go out pretty far. They had a great time boogie boarding. The weather was warm (not hot) in the daytime and cool (pretty chilly) at night. Linda was very responsive and our stay was private. The house was well stocked with towels and cooking utensils and supplies. There were some ants when we arrived but there was spray and it wasn’t much of an issue. There were locals at the beach during the weekend but we liked this and it made for a good atmosphere. We would stay again for sure!
Beautiful ocean view
It was our first Ensenada vacation with our 3 young children and we all had a great time. Linda was prompt to respond to our messages. Our overall experience was good. We would rent it again.
The wine country is just north of Ensenada, about an hour's drive away. It's a beautiful drive, lots of wineries to see and lots of wine to buy. Tide pools and mini hot spring close by. Bring your canoe or boat, jet ski, or Seadoos (sp?). La Bufadora is 15 minutes away, local health center offers yoga and other eastern style exercises, as well as massages that have everyone raving about them. Daily Zumba classes also held locally.During August, the Vendimia, a yearly wine festival with numerous events revolving around food and wine, are extremely popular; many sell out early. Golf is available at the Baja Country Club, a 20 minute drive and at Bajamar, about an hour north of Ensenada. Tide pools and a natural hot spring are close by; you can walk down, take a shovel and make your own hot tub! Take the kids to Las Cañadas water park (google it!) for water sports and zip lining . . . adult friendly as well!
