Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: My wife and I live in Long Beach, CA and currently starting a family with our 1 year old son, Keegan.
Why the Owner Chose Las Gaviotas: Casa Purnell was purchased as an empty lot in the mid 1970's when Las Gaviotas just got started. My parents were regular visitors to Rosarito Beach and Ensenada, and ended up making one of the best investment choices in their lifetime.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Casa Purnell is used primarily for friends and family, then rented out the rest of the time. Therefore, you will notice that the house has a personal touch rather then a generic look and feel that one would get in a full time vacation rental.
