Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Las Gaviotas - Casa de Playa

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths. 6 people max (no exceptions) kids 3 and under don't count

Welcome to your Casa de Playa (Beach House)! We are excited to make our beach house available for you to enjoy the magic of Las Gaviotas.

Do you Surf? Check out the waves while enjoying coffee on your private patio with one of the best views in Las Gaviotas, then grab your board and be surfing in 90 seconds! Our house is conveniently located just steps to the beach, only behind the first row of homes and directly across from the walkway to the beach. It’s one of the closest houses to the beach and very private since we enjoy a green area right in front and no roofs directly in front of the house. We enjoy one of the best unobstructed views in the community. While most properties in Las Gaviotas will have ocean view, very few houses have the open 180 degree view we enjoy.

Two Master suites with queen bed (one downstairs and one upstairs), third bedroom upstairs with two twin beds connected to the third full bathroom and a fourth bedroom downstairs connected to bathroom of master suite perfect for a family of four in each level (Max. 6 people over 3 years old, no exceptions so please don't insist) Plenty of space for everyone with larger than average sized rooms and an open layout in the living area will make you feel very welcomed. There’s also a rooftop terrace in addition to the main level patio and lower level patio. The house has just been updated with stainless steel french door Samsung refrigerator and 6 burner stove

If you haven’t been to Las Gaviotas yet, you’ll fall in love with the charm of its cobblestone streets, the private oceanfront boardwalk, oceanfront pool, jacuzzi, tennis, etc. You’ll also feel very safe from the moment you arrive, knowing that the community has a team of 15 security guards patrolling the complex 24/7.

Casa de Playa has all amenities you can expect from a fine beach home including themed furniture, crisp linens, full array of kitchenware, BBQ grill, fireplaces in living room and lower level master suite, TV with cable, DVD player, iPod player, outdoor “chimenea”, WiFi, Etc.

Come visit, love it and make this your family beach getaway house. Thank you for reading and please don't ask if you can bring more than 6 people since no exceptions will be made. Calendar is always up to date so please refer to it for availability.

About Jon

Surfer from San Diego.

Love enjoying life at its fullest.

Carpe Diem!

Jon purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Jon chose Northern Baja

First, why Las Gaviotas? After visiting a number of different communities in northern Baja we realized that there's no match to what Las Gaviotas has to offer. The safest, the cleanest and most well kept, the most resort-like amenities, private coastline and beach (Gaviotas has the concession to the coastline), excellent surf and mostimportantly, the Vibe of the people here is amazing. Now, why this house? closest to the beach and surf, clean and simple, airy and bright, very comfortable and well equipped, private, amazing views, cozy and inviting layout, plenty of space for everyone.

What makes this cottage unique

Clean and airy like no other rental in Gaviotas, closest access to the beach, very private since we don't have a house directly in front of us, two master suites plus a third bedroom with its own bathroom and fourth kids bedroom connected to bathroom and suite downstairs, perfect for a family. Upgraded and very well maintained and an electronic keypad instead of a key for everyone's convenience. Did I mention the view?

Excellent location, relaxing experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience at Jon's property in Las Gaviotas. We were in the area for a wedding and spent 3 relaxing nights at the property. Jon was extremely accommodating and responsive to inquiries prior to the trip, making our arrival, stay and departure seamless and highly enjoyable. Las Gaviotas is a secure community close to some great local destinations in Rosarito and Puerto Nuevo, and Jon makes a point to provide great recommendations for nearby dining. Bring your wetsuit (great surf spot a short walk from the property), brush up on your Spanish, and enjoy the serene views and relaxing atmosphere of Las Gaviotas. Highly recommended!

Awesome Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time ever going to Las Gaviotas and using VRBO. This house looked exactly like the pictures! Had an amazing view of the ocean, all the amenities we needed were available and the guards were super friendly. Now, if you are looking to party this is NOT the place. The guards are very strict about the noise level and do drive around at night, which made us feel safe. My friends and I were easily able to access taxis from Las Gaviotas to Rosarito and Puerto Nuevo for the nightlife. The description says "fits 6" but this house could easily fit 10! My 5 friends and I had big rooms with our own bathroom (has 4 bedrooms, we only used 3). Jon was so helpful and answered all of my questions very promptly.

The one complain I have is the ant problem we encountered. There were tons of ants in the kitchen as well as in our bedrooms (although not as prevalent in the bedrooms) and they would get in the closet drawers :-/ I HATE ants so this made me a little frustrated.

Other than the ant situation everything else was amazing. We visited the pools and private beach on the property. They sell food by the pool which is just amazing. Who doesn't enjoy a good fish taco and a nice cold Tecate by the pool with an breathtaking ocean view? Also, if you are going, be aware they have closed the Rosarito ramp which is right after you cross the border. Jon sent me detailed instructions on how to get there. Overall, we had such a fun time and I would not hesitate to come back to this property. We loved our stay! Thanks Jon for all your help.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to leave a nice review for us, very appreciated. Sorry for the ant issues. I've seen ants but hasn't been as bad as you described so might have been something going on around there. I'll have it checked. The detour is no longer necessary so next time just regular ramp after border :) Jon

A True Escape

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as advertised. Clean, spacious, and a short walk to the beach and surf break. It is quiet at night. People inside Gaviotas--including the guards--are super friendly. You see smiles everywhere.

We enjoyed the facilities, as well. I swam laps in the pool, which felt like one stroke shy of a traditional 25 yd. pool. It was usually empty. The hot tub is great, but rarely empty. =)

The owner of the house, Jon, is super responsive and offered helpful information about local sites and eateries. This place is why we VRBO. The vibe is perfect.

Please save a space for us in the future!
