About Robert or Phyllis Dufour

When my wife and I retired we decided to become beach bums! We have lived here in San Felipe for 4 years now and love the peace, tranquility and the ambiance of our little town. I am French and my wife grew up in So. California. Our homes have included Tustin California, Lake Tahoe and St. Martin in the Caribbean.

Our destiny was set in 1999 when we visited San Felipe the first time. We purchased our lot on the beach that weekend, built in 2007 and moved here permanently 4 years later. We always look forward to entertaining our family and friends and sharing the experiences of living on the beach in Baja! We have made many lifetime friends down here and hope to make you one too.

Robert or Phyllis Dufour purchased this house in 2006

Great vacation home and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to San Felipe for the last 7 years. This time I took the my whole family ( 6 adults, 2 year old grandson, and 2 dogs). The house is exceptionally equipped and comfortable. Very comfortable beds ( best in San Felipe so far) , great bathrooms, and great kitchen. Also every room has great air conditioners and each has its own TV ( It gets over 100 during the day in San Felipe on some the summer days). Beach front access with sand patio ( great for the dogs) and very secure. Fully equipped so no need to bring too much stuff.

I personally got to interact with Robert and Phyllis and they are great people ready to help with anything you may need and answer every question you may have.

Best ocean front vacation home in San Felipe so far. We are coming back!!!

Charming Beachfront Home-

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional property ! If you are thinking of San Felipe this is where you want to be! It is a beautiful home on an extraordinary beach. After having searched many properties we were certainly glad we chose this one right on the beach with incredible sunrises and sunsets. The ever-changing Sea of Cortez was both lovely to look at and pleasant for our daily afternoon swims. The ocean breezes also helped cool the summer temperatures down a little. Those same breezes are just not there when you get a little inland. We spent 3 weeks this summer in the upper unit with our small malti-poo puppies. We drove into Mexico with no problems of any kind....puppies and all. The directions provided are perfect and easy to follow. Even our pets found this to be a great vacation place with their many daily walks. It more than met our needs as it is well maintained with a complete kitchen and lovely furnishings for a beach vacation. The bedrooms and adjacent bathrooms are so nice and equipped with everything the property lists. The view from the outside patio is unbelievable if you are a water/beach person. Easy access to the beach on steps right next to the property. The photos are very accurate in representing the property. We only rented the upper unit but this home would be great for very large groups because of the way it is configured having inside access to both upper and lower units. The owners are very lovely and helpful people and will make every attempt to solve a problem or assist with vacation plans. We had everything we needed in the home but still ventured out daily to explore the city and surrounding area. The Valley of the Giants (large saguaro cactus) is very close to San Felipe. We found some restaurants in town for great mexican food. However, we did bring most of our food from the states with us. We had no problem at the border and in fact were not stopped at all. It all felt very safe to us.

We would definitely go back to San Felipe and definitely rent this property again! It helps that the owners are very pet friendly and willing to have the whole family ! We loved our extended stay in Mexico which would not have been possible without bringing our pets with us. We had such a great, relaxing and restful vacation. The sea is warm and friendly water without critters that bother you.

The beach is amazing with expansive clean sand. You can take really long walks. It is not crowded at all. We can't wait to visit again soon !!

We always enjoy our visits to San Felipe, this was our 12th visit to San Felipe and I can honestly say it was one of the better properties we have had the pleasure of renting. We took good care of your house and we hope to rent your property in the near future.

So much to do in San Felipe….. Golfing, ATV rentals, Banana boat rides, flying in an ultra-light plane, the casino, and an art Gallery. The center of nightlife in San Felipe is around the Malecon boardwalk, especially on weekends where you will find Mariachi bands, food carts, restaurants, and lots of shops with traditional arts and crafts. Annual events include the San Felipe Blues and Arts Fiesta, the Shrimp Festival, baja racing, Carnaval, the Festival De La Paella, and the Chili Cook-off. We are also acquiring a number of good, trendy type restaurants with excellent local entertainment. For nearby highlights we suggest Desert Eco Tours, the Hot Springs at Nearby Puertecitos,the Valley of the Giants, whale watching and wine tours. Getting to San Felipe is quite easy. We suggest you cross the eastern Calexico border into Mexicali then simply follow the well displayed signs to San Felipe on highway 5. The roads are well traveled and in good condition. The drive should take you about 2 ½ hours.
