Vista Hermosa means spectacular views in Spanish and this is truly a fitting description. Quiet Elegance. Located less than 10 min. South of Rosarito.

The small , gated and exclusive oceanfront community of MARENA COVE only has about 25 homes to boast and all are individually crafted-, special custom homes; half directly facing the ocean front with exquisite locations and the remainder on splendid 'second row' locations.

Located about ten minutes South of Rosarito in Baja California Norte, Mexico and less than one relaxed hour driving from the San Diego US-Mexico border crossing. Freeway-access nearby.

This gated community is an excellent mix of upper/middle income locals and Expats, overwhelmingly from California. Apart from the quiet elegance it offers through the home settings, (ocean front second-story with stunning views of whales, dolphins, pelicans, seagulls and many other seabirds) , the community offers a swimming pool and tennis court walking distance (200 yards).

At night, this gated community has security guards patrolling the area constantly.

Rarely do homes become available as vacation rental, but VISTA HERMOSA is the exception Toddler bed and baby crib available upon request (at no charge).

Oceanfront, second story with stunning views and very well appointed with a King bed in the spacious Master-Suite and a King AND a Full bed in the very large guest bedroom. Kitchen with modern stainless steel appliances (JenAir refrigerator, Whirlpool cooktop and dishwasher). A great well-furnished balcony with gas BBQ to enjoy ocean views and sunsets.

Romantic weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time together in beautiful Marena Cove. The house has amazing views overlooking the ocean. The sunsets were great and we enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio and loved waking up to a room with an spectacular view! The community is small, so it felt quaint and 'homey' to take a stroll along the oceanfront pathway! It was a quiet community and the neighbors we saw were friendly.

We also went out and had a nice fish ceviche and margarita in Puerto Nuevo, which was easy to get to and just 10 min from the house! On Saturday we went over to the beach, La Mision, and rode horses along the water with a guide, which only cost half hour for $10 per person! (We did tip extra of course). It couldnt have been a better weekend. We would definifely recommend to friends!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time to write a nice review of your recent stay. So glad to hear you guys had a great romantic weekend here, oceanfront, great views and nice weather. That was certainly helpful:-) The highlight of our home, as you correctly noted, is the location on the ocean and the spectacular views, basically from any window in the house. It is indeed a small and very friendly community of maybe 26 homes, with community pool and tennis court. With many part time owners, there is seldom any waiting time to use either one of those amenities. Puerto Nuevo's Lobster Village is another highlight and we are glad you enjoyed the food and the atmosphere there. Hoping to welcoming you soon again, many thanks, Alex and Margreet PS please give us referrals to your friends, we just started this listing and all reviews help.

Amazing ocean views, spacious, Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house has amazing unobstructed ocean views, just over an hour drive from the border. Located in a small community with restaurants and the beach within a few miles. Large outside patio with great unobstructed views of the ocean. Large rooms with private bathrooms, great interior, was everything we hoped it to be . We had a great time, will book again

Owner's Response: Many thanks Pieter for your nice review! Glad to hear you like the location, the house, the decorations and that you all had a great time. Horseback riding on the beach is indeed only 7 minutes away and some excellent restaurants very nearby are great for travelers. But like you stated, the amazing ocean views and proximity make this house very special. You were great guests to have and we look forward to having you as our guests again very soon. Alex and Margreet
