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.

Very comfortable and close to beach

  • 5 of 5

The camper was great. Michael added a full bathroom so the space had 1.5 bathrooms. It was very cozy and perfect for a quick getaway when you want to be on the beach but not necessarily in a tent. The beach has rock outcropping on both the north and south side so it feels secluded. Very family friendly beach where you can also drink beer and play your music. Would definitely return!

Comfort and Relaxation at it's Finest!

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Gail were very welcoming and friendly. The airstream was even better than I expected. Very clean, comfortable and offered ample room, especially with the addition of that wonderful full restroom. What a treat! Location is perfectly tucked away from town, but close enough to walk to it. You can access the beach and come back to refresh your drink without dreading the walk. Super secured and safe. I will definitely be returning and will miss Sasha and Lily (cutie pups).

Lovely place, with character, exactly what I was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Michael have renovated and added onto a 50's vintage caravan in a way that is unique and delightful to stay in. The exterior courtyard they created, and the added bathroom, gives the unit just enough elbow room to not feel too cramped. The spaces inside are not large, and I appreciated the feeling of being snug and cozy in bed. All the amenities were provided.

The walk to the beach is very short, the beach is very nice, and the swimming is good. A few times I had the beach all to myself.

As an architect with a practice and a staff at home I also had to do some work remotely. The wi-fi was very good and I had no problem doing the work that I needed to do.

The two puppies that were living in the courtyard, Sasha and Lilly, were affectionate, easy going, quiet, and fun to hang out with!

As a newcomer to Baja who is setting out to explore Baja, this was a perfect place to find a little respite from the differing intensities of the geography (which I love), the Malecon (can be busy and noisy), and the town.

I made a mistake with key management and Gail and Michael were quick to help with the problem. I came to know that if I had had any problems or needs Gail and Michael are very helpful hosts.

Exactly as stated. Trailer in perfect condition

  • 5 of 5

The property is as stated. Very clean and we loved the trailer. The owners were available, but, gave us our privacy. We brought our dog and she was very welcome. Wi-fi and T.V. we're available and worked perfectly. Would recommend this property to anyone. It is close to town and beach access is across the street.
