  • Amazing beach side Casa!

    "Our group had 7 adults and Casa Grande was perfect for housing and entertaining our group. Beautifully designed and appointed, the house was clean upon arrival and looked better than the pictures. The main living space and connected gourmet open kitchen and dining space made for the perfect place to dine, entertain and relax as a group while the four beautiful, spacious rooms each with their own bathroom provided everyone with privacy when wanted. The fully equiped kitchen and high end stainless appliances were a nice change from other rentals and made cooking our own meals and clean-up after a breeze. Although water was from a tank on site, with everyone being conscientious with their water use and keeping hot showers reasonable, the 7 of us had plenty of water for the whole week we were there. Being right on the beach was unbelievably awesome. Just a few steps out the door and we were burying our feet in the sand and walking for miles along the shore. Several types of beach chairs stored in the garage were much appreciated as well. Despite being in the high 90's during our stay, the a/c worked perfectly and kept the house at a very comfortable temp day and night. When night did roll around, the roof top terrance with the built-in gas BBQ was the perfect spot to grill our catch from our earlier fishing expedition. After eating on the roof, we watched the stunning sunset, the milky way come into view and counted meteors well into the night over numerous cold beers. Municipal power to the house did flicker occasionally, but was never a problem for us and seemed to affect the surrounding homes as well. The property manager dropped by soon after arrival, and again several times during the week to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. All in all, our expectations were exceeded and would heartily recommend."

  • Great Little House

    "Stayed just a couple of nights on the way home from Rosarito. We had to see what San Felipe was about. The house was more than adequate, comfortable even. Had everything needed for a short stay. Loved the Kiva fireplace. The location is a little out of town but that ensured that it was nice and quiet at night. We also enjoyed the table outside, in the evening, at least. We would like to come back sometime when the weather is milder. Would definitely recommend this house for a comfortable vacation."

  • family trip first time

    "Absolutely loved our stay here nothing better than to wake up to the sound of the ocean and not to mention the view. Family trip first time going and I've gotta say we will be back here again. Staff and owner were very nice, condo was beautiful and supplied cooking and eating utensils. Very close to shops and restaurants. We rented quads at only $25 per hour :). A must try is the Piña coladas every so often guy will drive by the beach sells them really delicious."

  • 2014 Labor Day Weekend Boys Trip

    "I took my three older sons (20, 24, and 27) and my two brothers-in-law to the house for a long four day Labor Day Weekend. The weather was 100 in the day and about 84 at night. For six guys, we found the accommodations perfect and roomy. We packed and brought all of our own food and water. Alan, the caretaker/neighbor, was phenomenal. He used his four wheel truck (necessary) to pull our jet ski trailer down to the water's edge and launch and retrieve the jet skiis in the morning and evening. The house is beautifully remodeled with ceiling fans in every room. Propane BBQ on the patio that we used to make hamburgers and hot dogs one evening. Location very safe and comfortable. Because it is 100 feet from the Sea of Cortez, there are almost no waves and with some wind, the waves are small. The listing and photos accurately depict the house. The house was clean and well maintained. I must have emailed Brain 20 times before we used the house with many questions, and he was quick and very helpful in his responses. I would recommend the house to friends and relatives. On our jet skiis, we pulled people with wake boards, water skiis, and knee boards. We swam in the 88 degree water all times during the day. The Palapa made it comfortable to sit under during the heat of the day as we read and played football on the beach. We went into San Felipe for lunch one day (20 mile drive) and bought some sky rockets to shoot on the beach at night. Thoughts: 1. August/September is very hot. Be prepared for 100+ temperatures during the day and 80+ at night. 2. Bring all food and drink since town isn't close, also a small market with limited items in a couple miles away. 3. The tide rises and falls about 50 to 75 feet twice a day and down by the water and in some water close to shore are small rocks. Water shoes are a must. 4. ATT has phone service at the house. No service for Verizon. There is no WiFi. 5. There is a DVD player and so we brought our own DVD's to watch. 6. Be sure to always bring your passports."

San Felipe Travel Tips

Getting to San Felipe Vacation Houses

While San Felipe has an international airport, no commercial flights currently operate from it. The airport is open for charter flights and as many as 20 flights land a day. Most visitors come from Southern California and drive the five hours from San Diego down via Mexicali to San Felipe. If you are traveling from other parts of North America or Europe then your closest commercial airport will be in San Diego. From there, you can hire a car and drive the remaining distance to San Felipe. A regular bus service operates between Tijuana and San Felipe and is the only mode of public transport available.

Visitors to San Felipe Beach Houses

San Felipe tends towards a leisurely pace. It’s a great place to come, relax and simply get away from busy corporate life. There is a growing population of retirees in San Felipe who are attracted by the warm climate and relaxed atmosphere of the town. If you like to take leisurely strolls on the beach and enjoy sailing or boating then you will have a great stay in San Felipe. It’s a welcome change from busy resort-type towns, even though the city still receives a steady stream of tourists year-round.

Things to Do near San Felipe Resorts

Most people enjoy doing as little as possible during their vacation in San Felipe; however, the warm ocean provides the perfect place for a wide range of activities. Boating is a popular pastime and there is a launch ramp that can be used at the harbor. Moorings can be arranged if you will be staying for an extended period. There are no crane facilities so only smaller boats can be launched on the slip. Many larger yachts sail south from San Diego and the vision is that the Baja Peninsula can become a popular destination for yachtsmen from North America. There are several sailing regattas that take place in season.

Take a drive south from San Felipe and visit the geothermal springs in the small retirement community of Puertecitos. The springs are located right on the rocky shoreline and often too hot to sit in unless the tidal waters are high enough to cool the spring water down. If you do find the temperature moderate enough, the pools are wonderfully relaxing.

The miles of white sandy beaches are perfect for beachcombing and leisurely strolls. Occasionally, you can come across a beach bar where you can enjoy a drink and light meal while looking out over the ocean. The town of San Felipe has a strong shrimp fishing heritage and many of the local restaurants still serve a wide range of delicious seafood on their menus. Dining out is a great experience. A festive atmosphere, good food and plenty of drink are usually the order of the day.

Seasons to Visit Baja California Norte Vacation Rentals

San Felipe enjoys a warm year-round climate, not unlike Miami. The summer months are hot and humid and the winter months are warm and dry. During October to March, you can expect clear sunny skies with moderate temperatures of around 60 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. In January, the occasional storm blows south from California. Most of the rainfall occurs in the humid summer season. August and September generally record the highest rainfall levels as tropical storms blow across the Pacific Ocean. The rain showers accompanying the hurricanes tend to be intense and short-lived, and these tropical storms usually only occur once or twice a year. For the majority of the year, you can enjoy sunshine and a laid-back atmosphere.
