Property description

Come enjoy the comforts of your own home, sprinkled with a Baja's Charm. Plan a fall trip on our fabulous beach. Our weather is the same as San Diego(45 minutes North). Our best months are spring and fall.

The Ocean setting of the house sports a surf view all the way to the south end of the beach. We are exactly in the middle. There is a a mile and a half of beach in front of the house. Just TEN STEPS off the patio, you sink your toes into the soft, warm sand.
Our San Diego architect took maximum advantage of the ocean setting, lining both upstairs and downstairs with 4 X 8 foot panes of glass. As a result, the Sunsets are both picturesque as well as a beautiful way to conclude your day. Fall/Winter and Spring are the best! (SEE PICTURES)

The house sleeps can sleep up to 8, but is ideal for 4 adults and three children or just 6 (three couples.) In the upstairs bedrooms, we have two comfortable, recently upgraded Kings. The downstairs, is like one large Master Bedroom complete with fireplace, refrigerator, microwave and private bathroom. When we visit, my wife and I love it because we can both hear as well as see the waves. We sleep in the double bed. When there is a larger group or kids , we utilize the adjacent futon or foldout double bed. It is an ideal room to be inside the house, but separate from the kids. You can still keep a watchful eye on them by peeking over the railing. In the daytime it doubles as the game room with the ping pong/pool table games and a chess set.

La Mision is a small, gated, patrolled, beach community with good restaurants close by. It is dotted with small markets, taco stands, Red Cross and a Police Station.

As you step off the patio into the soft sand, look both ways. There is a mile and a half of enjoyment in front of you. We prefer the walk to the North for privacy. It is like being on your own private island. There is never a crowd. You will just have to experience the solace and tranquility to understand our feelings.

CONGRATULATIONS NEW ENGLAND on your gift, During the NFL football season, we offer the Premium package with 185 channels. In addition to our SUNDAY NFL TICKET, we have kids channels and Spanish channels. The NFL allows you to watch all morning football (10 am. games. ) Then, in the afternoon(1 pm.), you can watch the remaining West Coast teams. Of course, you can always, just turn to the RED ZONE channel' and catch every score from every game. ) We also offer numerous other sports when football is out of season.

For the professional golf enthusiasts, The US. Open has just concluded. Congratulation Jordan Spieth on both your Masters victory and the US Open. What epic performances for a 21 year old. The British Open has concluded. Remember, our ocean course at Baja Mar is just down the road. Try your luck, but bring extra golf balls.
March Madness is over. Sorry, Kentucky!

If you are a volleyball enthusiast, like I was, there is a court right out front on the beach. Nets are found at the beach level in the Boogie board room. For over ten years, I hosted the La Fonda, 2 Man Beach Tournament with ten courts in front of the house. Just bring your ball!

On the other hand, if you are a Surfer, we have a GOOFY FOOTED break right out front. The World renowned K-38 is just North of us, while Salasipuedes ( Hawaii type waves) and San Miguel are to the South.

The weather allows us to have year round activities for kids and adults. The horseback riding on the beach is more like horseback walking. It is great for kids as well as being romantic for adults at Sunset. But, do not expect lively horses. It is more like horse walking than riding; however, they will, deliver you right to the front of the house on your return trip.

At the South end of the beach there are food vendors selling all types of Mexican food. The fresh fruit and the ripe Coconuts are the most popular.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1970

About the owner: This has been our weekend home away from home for some time now. Living in San Diego, it is just a 45 minute drive from the border, down the toll road to the house. Watching the dolphins feed just before a magnificent sunset, with you favorite beverage in hand, you will forget about the work week that you just finished. By listening to the crashing waves as they lull you to sleep, you return to the States invigorated, refreshed and ready for a new week..

Why the Owner Chose La Mision:
If you are looking for lots of people, loud music, and younger 18 year old bars - Rosarito (20 minutes North) will be more suited to your taste. Ensenada (25 minutes south), on the other hand, offers a large, crowded city atmosphere with a fabulous fish market, reasonable fish tacos and lots of shopping. After you arrive, please, visit both nearby cities and see why we chose our quaint little spot on the beach in between them. We have a number of restaurants within a mile. La Fonda, The Light House, Cieto Lindo, Maganas, and the La Mision Hotel. Eight miles to the North is PUERTO NUEVO Baja's Finest Lobster Villiage. A whole town of Lobster restaurants. Our favorite is La Perlita. Telll Lupe that 'Ricardo from La Mision' says Hello. According to the story, a number of years ago, we built his second story with our lobster parties. We boiled them in a twenty gallon milk can. Also, we used to ship his burros (the largest ones) cooked and frozen back to Chicago for family Christmas presents. August is Wine Country month - They have a famous Vendemia with Jazz concerts, special Barbecued lamb chops, and wine tastings fiestas The Sunday conclusion is a Paella and wine tasting event.. It has become so popular that ticket are sold on the internet in March for an august week of parties if you just prefer a pleasant wine and cheese tasting tour, Guadalupe Valley is a scenic 25 mile drive through the hills to the South. For more intimate details of the various tastings, check with Dick. COME JOIN US and SEE FOR YOURSELF!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As mentioned above, if you like football or soccer, you don't have to miss any of your NFL games.The family can enjoy the beach while you keep track of your favorite team. You can watch two or eight games at the same time or switch to the red zone for all the scoring. To this day our resident Historian, Charlie Wild, 87 years young, tells us about the days before the toll road, electricity and the telephone. He says, "Those were the good 'ol days". Of course, we have to imagine how we could have existed without Direct TV, the wireless internet, Gas BBQs, and our Satellite dish. The beach is still as pristine, peaceful, and uninhabited as the day we arrived here. We are from San Diego. If you are from CALIFORNIA, you will not believe the difference in our uncrowded beach. Take a walk to the North. Come check it out! You'll be surprised.
