Casa Toscana de Baja

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 14, 2016
House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

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.

Perfect for the Family!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a clean, safe, fully-equipped, and spacious home-away-from home in Las Gaviotas... then Casa Toscana de Baja is the place for you!

Last month, my family of four (along with another family of five) shared this property for a long weekend. Aside from its breathtaking views and close proximity to the tennis courts, we were very impressed by the amount of room we had to “spread out!” Every possible kitchen necessity was available, each room had its own bathroom (or one nearby), the main living room was comfortable, and we had plenty of space for dining, playing games, and/or just relaxing with a margarita!

Gary and Kathy were extremely friendly, responsive, and informative as we made arrangements for our stay. We are grateful to them for opening up their home to us!

Thank you for such a great kick-off to summer!

Ole!

Beautiful escape!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Toscana in February for my boyfriends 30th birthday party. The weather was awesome and the rental was amazing. We had the master bedroom on the first floor that had a private balcony, it was perfect. The house was very clean and well kept. We really enjoyed our time here and can't wait to visit again! Highly recommend!

Amazing Place with Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Toscana de Baja for a girls weekend and it did not disappoint! The property is amazing. Everything is fully stocked (including a coffee grinder!) and there is a bathroom in every single bedroom (really great feature for an all girls weekend!). The views off both decks were unbelievable and the Spanish flare in the design was just perfect. Thanks for an excellent weekend full of memories, we'll be back!

Owner's Response: We take pride in making this house very comfortable to our renters. I love the view as well. Sipping coffee on our deck and enjoying the piece and quiet. I am so glad you enjoyed the kitchen as much as we do. It is a fun part of the house; to communicate with your friends while cooking for them. They can even help with the chopping while sitting at the bar sipping their beverage of choice. Thank you so much for the kind review. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 nights at Casa Toscana last month and were more than pleased with our time there. The location feels very safe as there are armed guards at the gate to the community. The house itself is very spacious, has great ocean views from the Balconies, beautifully decorated, and is kept very clean.. The bedrooms were comfortable each with their own bathroom. All appliances in the house were working well and the house is fully stocked with everything you will need for the weekend. We had an amazing time staying here and will definitely look to stay here when I drive down again this summer.
