A Taste of Tuscany in Baja, Mexico Opened March 1st 2004!

BAJA MEXICO - People who are familiar with the spectacular Baja

Pacific Coast will be pleased to discover one of the newest

properties in Los Gaviotas is open for rental. Los Gaviotas, for

the uninitiated, is a 30 year old gated community of private

residences and rental properties nestled along the beautiful Mexican

Coastline just 45 minutes south of San Diego, California. Long

popular with California vacationers, as well as savvy surfers around

the US and the world, Los Gaviotas and the surrounding Rosarito area

offer a wide range of activities for the entire family.

This newer property, lovingly called Casa Toscana de Baja by the

owners, is awash in charm, comfort, and functionality. Facing

almost due west, this 2,400 square foot property offers a 180 degree

view of some of the most stunning sunsets anywhere in the world,

from the two spacious balconies along the front of the house.

The gorgeous white water views even make morning coffee an extra

special occasion!

The owners told this reporter that they decided to make the main

theme of this home reminiscent of the Tuscany Region of Italy

because of their affinity for all things wine-related, including

pairing interesting wine with interesting food. Upon reaching the

top floor of the home, the guests will be struck with an abundance

of appealing furniture and decorations. This floor holds the fully

equipped kitchen, a spacious living area with a large brick

fireplace, a "Second Master" bedroom with a King-Size bed and a

private bathroom, another half bath just off the Living Room, and a

terrace with outdoor furniture and a gas grill. The living area

has a large screen TV, a DVD/VCR Player with Surround-Sound, and a

better than average DVD and VCR collection with selections for all

ages. A good variety of amusing and entertaining games are also on

hand. The owners also invite their guests to bring their favorite

CD�s for playing on the stereo system.

When it's finally time to rest up for the next day's activities, the

visitor can go down stairs to the three other beautiful bedrooms.

Each bedroom at this level has its own private bathroom, and is

decorated in a unique and interesting theme. The Master Bedroom,

with its King-Size bed, is on this level and provides the guest with

a "Taste of the Tropics". The beautiful bathroom has a double

vanity and large shower, complete with a bathtub - unusual in

traditional Mexican architecture. Romance abounds in this

private "retreat", which includes a fireplace and an inside

conversation area for those few chilly evenings, a large ocean view

terrace, and even a large television with DVD/VCR player for cozy

late night viewing.

The other two bedrooms on this level are also decorated in

distinctive style. The "Nautical" room, with its Queen-Size bed,

is a whimsical tribute to the stunning Pacific Ocean just steps away

from the home's front door. The "Safari" room gives the weary

traveler a taste of the wild jungle without leaving the safety and

beauty of the Baja Coast. This sanctuary has two Twin-Size beds

that are perfect for the kids in the group. There is a gaming

system on the TV in this room. There is a completely unique

feature in the "Safari" room. If the group includes all adults,

the owners have thoughtfully provided a "gadget" that will convert

the two twin beds into another King-Size bed so no one has to sleep

alone! Private baths in both rooms insure a "no-waiting" policy in

this Paradise on the Pacific.

Although content to enjoy the amenities of this awesome property,

this reporter is well aware that most vacationers will want to know

about what is available in the area. He is happy to inform the

guests, that unless you are staying for several years, you may never

run out of things to do in the Rosarito, Los Gaviotas, Puerta Nueva

areas. And even if that does happen, there is always Tijuana - 25

minutes north, or Encinada - just 30 minutes south.

More than matches expectations

  • 5 of 5
Yes yes and yes answers to :
1) Was the house good value.
2) Was the location great with great views.
3) Were the owners prompt and easy to deal with.

There is much more to say but time is short.
There were 5 of us in the house which can easily fit 8, so plenty of room to spread out, not that we had to.
The kitchen, dining, family areas and balcony (with spectacular views) is where we spent most of our time.
Unlike some rentals we've stayed at, this place is kept immaculate with real pride of ownership from top to bottom.
The secure gated community means that once you get there and park the car in the enclosed garage you can relax and be totally at ease.
The beach is not much to write home about but waves were great and surfer watching very entertaining. Take binoculars.
No question we would go right back to Casa Toscana for another visit to Las Gaviotas. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home and trusting us with it.

Gonzo for Rosarito Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Casa Toscana de Baja has become my go-to choice for making the
getaway from the hustle and bustle of my fast-paced business-centric
life in the Inland Empire. Just a few shorts hours on the road from
home and I am transported to a whole different world where the pace
is what I decide it will be. I've stayed here 10+ times and finally
decided to share why with everyone else. The house is beautiful and
well appointed throughout. The bedrooms are theme based and each
has it's own bathroom ensuring everyone has privacy and no lines for
the shower when the whole gang is there. The top floor's open floor
plan is great for gathering together for the epicurean delights created
in a kitchen with plenty of hardware and gadgets. The adjacent dining
and living rooms are bright and airy with plenty of room to mingle,
dance, lounge on the couch, sip wine or enjoy a pitcher of
margaritas. The patio decks off of the second level master bedroom
and third level living room are great for taking in the views of the
ocean and sunsets as well as the action on the tennis courts just
below. I don't surf but I've been told there is a great break along the
beach that stretches along the Las Gaviotas complex. I do walk
along the beach, swim in the pool, jacuzzi before bed and get plenty
of relaxation. Which brings me to the safety and peace of mind my
companions and I have within the walled, gated and security patrolled
complex. If you take plenty of supplies with you, you never have to
leave the Las Gaviotas community. On the other hand, there are several very good
restaurants and plenty of activities outside the complex. We had a
marvelous day in the Guadalupe wine country and tasted some
wonderful wines during my last stay. The owners of the house are
sincere and have given me recommendations for activities,
restaurants, grocery stores and shopping. The value can't be beat!
Go there, you will see for yourself.

The value can't be beat! (Six of us shared the wine country trip in August and the cost per person around $50 a night for the house). Go there, you will see for yourself.

My girlfriend and I have been coming here for years. It's a great place and always clean, which is nice. The view is amazing and it's so close to the water. Go, if you can!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoy our home. We love coming to relax in our beautiful home away from home. We have a great time, whether we bring friends for our 4 bedroom home or just come just the two of us; swimming in the pool, playing tennis, taking walks every morning or just watching the waves is rewarding. The time spent is the best rejuvenation we need away from life in big city. Thanks again for your response. We will welcome your return visit.
