About the property

Large House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Studio room with a futton. Sleeps 8 - 10

Beautiful House up on the hills of Ensenada with 3 bedrooms, and a studio-room with a futton for 2 more sleepers. One of the bedrooms has double full size matress for additional sleepers.

This is a Dream Vacation Home with balcons and great view with large sliding glass doors in every bedroom. Up on the second story, there is a large terrace with patio furniture, a gas barbecue grill and patio furniture with umbrella. This main terrace is overseeing the ocean, the port and the city. You will be able to watch the beautiful Cruise and Private Ships, coming in and out of the bay, day and night as well as gorgeous sunsets every evening while you lay in bed in the master bedroom, or from the main terraze having a drink and listening to music with your loved ones.

The house is a 'mini mansion', it is very safe because it has a security fence around it with locked gates and a 24-7 monitored alarm system hooked to the police 24-7 even for emergencies while in the house. The house has a land telephone, Cable TV, a desk computer with internet and WiFi service for your personal electronic devices.

There is beautiful furniture in every room and a modern fully equiped kitchen for cooking. The house is equipped with 'emergency water' and a pressure pump system, so that you never run out of water or presure.

The house is located in a nice exclusive neighborhood in town, with groceries stores, farmacies, gas station and AM-PM store just down the hill. There is an emergencies hospital near by.

Downtown Ensenada and all of its day and night action is only a mile and a half away, only a five minute drive. The only Public Beach 'Playa Bonita Malecon' is six blocks away from the house. Everything is near you and yet you will have enough seclusion, privacy,comfort and safety to enjoy your vacation near downtown Ensenada.

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.

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

Worth Every Penny....

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house and location. I am an Ensenada native, but my wife and her children are not. This was their first experience of Ensenada. Therefore, I wanted to make sure it was memorable. The rental of this house made this possible. It is centrally located in a nice neighborhood and the service is commendable. Near the main highway to La Bufadora or the city. The house has all the stated amenities. We did have an issue with the main television not having any cable access, (needed when you take kids) but that was a minor detail. Rene (owner) and Carlos (local rep.) were very professional. We liked it so much, we plan on going back later this summer.

Owner's Response: Glad to be part and have helped you making your family first and second visit to Ensenada a memorable one. My apologies about the Cable not working while you were in the house. As soon as I heard about it I contacted the cable Co. and gave us the tip to make it work. The system needed to be rebooted by disconnecting the box and connecting it back after a few minutes. I have added a giant screen TV in the living room with cable service as well. Thank you for your preference and future recommendations to the house.

Beautiful cozy home.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at the Guevera's home in Ensenada on two occasions. On our first stay, there was a problem with the water pressure in the upstairs bathroom and we advised Mr. Guevera; that problem has since been resolved. I must mention that making arrangements with them is very easy, convenient and they always respond to your emails promptly. Unfortunately, on our last stay at the home in Ensenada it was because my grandmother was gravely ill and we were having difficulty getting her released from the hospital (in California) to bring her to her home in Ensenada. So I did not have an exact date of arrival. Mr. Guevera treated us with compassion during this difficult time and went out of his way to accommodate our last minute request for rental. I highly recommend this beautiful home that is located in a very nice area in Ensenada!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the review and your repeat business Mrs. Hernandez. Me and my wife strive to provide to all of our guests with excellent service in a extraordinary vacation house. Most of our guests, like you, are repeat guests. I think that the fact that someone who comes back to our house talks by itself. We make it a priority to keep the house in top running condition all the time and replace anything that is giving any signs of malfunction. The house has two large water storage tanks and a brand new water pressure system to handle any demands of water any family may have 24 - 7

I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to enjoy the weekend at your beautiful home , from bbq to enjoying the breeze on your rooftop balcony made our stay feel so welcoming and relaxing. Great location with a 5minute drive to downtown but most importantly I need to address as you might already know ,that your assistant Rebecca was beyond amazing! From the time that she showed us the house around till the very end of our trip, she was excellent and made us feel safe and welcomed. Thank you for everything -Jhonny

Most of the Ensenada Special Events, cars, motorcycle and bicycles races take place at the "Malecon" along side the Playa Bonita Beach, located 6 blocks away from the house. 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 less than $10.00 dollars round trip.

Lots of Mexican Arts and Crafts stores in the downtown area with tons of fine restaurants to pick and choose, some of them with live music and sidewalk full service on the main "Primera" First Street. Not far from here you find several Wine Tasting warehouses that offer free "wine tasting" as you visit their shops and restaurants.

The walkway along the "Bahia de Ensenada" with shops, movie theaters and private boats is lots of fun too. You can also enjoy the boat displays including the various Cruise Ships. 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. This area of the port has daily departures for Bay Tours as well as Fishing Boats for private hiring or group boats. 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. Ensenada has 7 Casinos spreaded in the downtown area where you can gamble all night long.

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.
