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.

This beautiful home is kept in great condition. Every thing you need to make your stay pleasant. The view of the ocean is great. We are calling this place "our home away from home". Very roomy and refreshingly clean. You will not be disappointed. Secure with nice roomy two car garage.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your beautiful review. We do our best to make our renters feel as comfortable as they are in their own home. Well maybe just a little spoiled. I also like having the garage clean enough for two cars. Makes it nice not to have to park outside. "Home away from Home, that is perfect for us too. Thanks again for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sincerely, Kathy Moylan

We recently vacationed at Casa Toscana and we had the best time ever, my family and friends had the most pleasant time ever, the kitchen has every appliance needed, dishes, cups, utensils any kitchen can use. you need bring nothing but toiletries and your beach towels.

We vacationed with 8 adults, enjoyed the fireplace so much it got quite chilly and kept us quite warm, the home is clean, linens are clean, nothing i could say but EXCELLENT ON THIS HOME. you will not be disappointed. we are booking again 2017.

he owners were so easy to work with, and easy to contact even from the home, if something went wrong.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Toscana over a long weekend in October with two families including a 3 year old and two 1 year olds. We couldn't have asked for a better setup. Everything in the house we could have needed was available, it was clean, quiet, and close proximity to the pool and beach. It was really nice having the garage as well, which fit two SUVs just fine. Kathy and Gary were wonderful hosts and provided everything we needed to enjoy the weekend stress-free, including detailed directions and info to get across the border and to the house safely (it took only 2 hours from Orange County). Highly recommended!
