Good experience. Clean home.

  • 4 of 5

We had a good experience this past weekend in this Ensenada home. Fully equipped with necessities and enough space for a large families. We had an issue with the refrigeration cooler the first night and the owner made sure to have someone come out the next day. Unfortunately, the AC guy said nothing could be done until the following Monday due to a piece he needed. The house was definitely warmer than we’d like to have it, but not awful. The location was ideal and close to everything we needed. Felt very safe. There was also lots of bugs around the back parking area, recommend bug spray.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Mrs. Gonzales. It is always good to know how things went during your visit and how things can be improved at the house for future guests. I apologize for the unexpected unit break down. The house is naturaly cooled by the constant ocean breeze when it is allowed to circulate through the house by opening a front and back window. The A/C unit is there for people who preffer closed doors. Unit was fixed on Monday. Parking lot has been sprayed throughly. Thank for your good and honest review.

First off dealing with the website was a joke in the beginning! After finally jumping through hoops with that part of it, I was able to be in contact with the home owner via the website directly. He was amazing to deal with! The house was awesome, and everything he said it was. Very close to town, very safe and secure, yet out of the way in a good way. Thank you Rene for making this as painless as possible! Hope to be back next year!

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, I am glad to hear good things from another one satisfied guest, specially from someone who leads a car racers group. I felt the excitement of being part of that very special event, Baja 500. Thank you for your preference and hopefully we will help you again in the next off road race you guys participate in Baja CA.

Let me start off by saying it was AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and big enough for my big family. It's a beautiful well taken care of house. The best part about it was the location, near everything. We really enjoyed our stay in Ensenada and can't wait to go back the following year. Thank you to the owners who made it so easy to reserve the dates as well!

2nd Annual Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time renting a vacation home via on line, so I went through pay pal, the whole transaction with the owner Mr. Guevara was very pleasant he not only replied back right away but also answered all my calls when he provided me with his personal & residence phone number.

We arrived at his beautiful vacation home in Ensenada we were really surprised it was better than in the pictures 7 Adults and 3 kids fit we all fit perfectly, house was clean and had all you can think of, Wi-Fi came in handy for the kids, the location was nice and quiet.

it was so close to the sea you can literally feel the breeze from the balcony, nice perfect weather, my family and I are already planning next years trip and would love to stay here once again, or even sooner. The only concern I had was when showering the water was kind of salty not like the sea salty but it was a bit you could taste it but i'm sure that was a city problem not the properties, we really did not interact a lot with Carlos & Alma but they seemed good people when they hand over the keys. We are so thankful with Mr. Guevara for being to professional and we will definitely be in contact soon, once again thank you so much.

The Garcias.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. Garcia and family, I am glad to hear you and your family had an excellent and extraordinary vacation time in our Ensenada Hills Dream Home. Me and my wife are always striving for complete satisfaction from all of our guests and its well know that most of my guests are come backs, like you, because of not only having met your expectations, but surpass them. The problem with Public Water in the city is something everyone lives with in Ensenada. It is clear clean and safe to take a bath but not for drinking. I have two filtering systems in the house and some stuff still percolates through. I will see that the filters get checked and replaced if necessary. We always have a couple of 5 gallon bottles of drinking and cooking water in the kitchen water dispenser in order to be on the safe side when it comes to water consumption. We will be glad to have you as a guest in the near future, and thank you for the review. Its nice to hear good things and also make ourselves aware of anything that needs our attention in the house to make it better.

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice, big house with a lot of room, which helps when you go in a big group. We were 8 guests who fit comfortably in 3 of the rooms & the 1 studio that does fit 2 ppl. The neighborhood is very quite and nice. Very close to the zona centro which was our main destination and also close to the main road to La Buffadora. The security system is amazing, didn't' even know an alarm system like that existed. Carlos who met as at the house was very helpful and great for answering all my annoying calls even after hours, he was great even recommended a taxi who was also great... I would definitely come back! Thank you Mr. Guevara.

Owner's Response: You are welcome Yesi and Eduardo ! I am so glad to hear that you liked and enjoyed the house comfort, safety and its convenient location near everything an Ensenada visitor seeks for an adventurous vacation. Most of my guests are comebacks and just like you become regular visitors. I will be more than happy to reserve for you and friends to come in the near future. The best recommendation that exists is word of mouth from someone who has experienced renting a house with all its amenities rather than a hotel room. I recommend that in the future you inquiry for the house with plenty of time in advance to assure its reservation. Thank you for your preference.. Rene Guevara

At this beach you will also find horses, quad-bikes and small boats for rent, so that you can ride on the beach. There are daily fishing boat departures for deep ocean fishing wether you are a profetional or amateur fisher. You don't even have to have equipment, most services provide everything you need to catch a big one.

There is a night club in front of Playa Bonita beach "Casa Country", with live music and sports bar only 6 blocks away from the house! And lots of other Fun Night Clubs in downtown only a mile and a half away from the house. You may call for a cab to take you back and forth downtown for aproximately $10.00 dollars round trip.

The famous fresh fish market know as the“Black Market", don't know why, where you can buy all kinds of fish, and have it sliced in front of you.

You may also rent quads-motorcycles in front of the port to cruise in the downtown area or take short city tour in a "Calandria" horse carriage for a romantic and fun ride.

The exciting and fun night life in downtown Ensenada is one of the highlights you don’t want to miss with lots of famous and "hot" night clubs to enjoy with your friends. Some of these night clubs stay open until 4:00 a. m. on weekends. All of this is just a five minutes drive from the house, or if you prefer there are bilingual taxi drivers available with just a phone call.

If you are looking for the Downtown Action/events or bussiness, we are the closest, largest and nicest house for rental in Ensenada. The house is only one mile south and 6 blocks East of the Giant Mexican Flag Monument in downtown Ensenada.

The world famous nature wonder Blow-Hole "La Bufadora" is only a 40 minutes drive from the house.

Ensenada is considered one of the safest city for tourist in Mexico, and the proff is the thousands of tourist that visit this city from all over the world, including several national and international cruise ships every week.
