About Gail or Michael Gates

Originally from Washington State, my wife, Gail and I have been living in San Felipe for over 10 years and coming here since the "70's. I enjoy working on different projects and in April of 2015 bought the first aluminum trailer to upcycle for guests and turned our property into a vintage trailer court. It's been a fun project with it all complete. One house and three vintage trailers allows for plenty of garden area and parking.

Why Gail or Michael Gates chose Segunda Sección

What a great location across the street from a sandy beach and just minutes walk into town. The Malecon is fun for people of all ages and has some of the best taco's around! The home of the original fish taco.

Our San Felipe Vacation......

  • 5 of 5

We had the most delightful stay in San Felipe. For one month we rented Gail and Michaels refurbished 1950 trailer. You talk about cozy......it was wonderful. Everything we needed.....bedroom, two bathrooms, kitchen with lots of storage, and a living room with a comfortable couch and large flatscreen t.v.. The enclosed compound was wonderful and secure for my dog to roam unaccompanied with their dog, Sasha, to play with. The biggest plus

was the nearby private beach. My husband and I along with "Bella" enjoyed a daily walk up and down looking for shells and sea glass. Gail and Michael are two exceptionally interesting people. They went out of their way to be very gracious hosts. We will look forward to seeing them again for another wonderful visit.

Peaceful, accessible, and right next to the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little gem and we have nothing we'd want to change. It is across the street from a beautiful beach and a perfect balance between isolated enough to be peaceful yet close enough that it's a short walk to the boardwalk. Gail and Michael were fantastic hosts and an invaluable resource in regards to what's in town and cultural nuances we needed to be aware of.

The property itself is very nice and classy, and immaculately clean. We felt very comfortable and secure and had access to all the modern accessories we've been spoiled with.

If we have the good fortune of returning to San Felipe, we will be checking availability here and highly disappointed if isn't open.
