About Shannon Shields
We are a couple who has realized our long-standing dream of owning a house on Estero de Punta Banda. Guy has been coming to Baja since he moved from Ohio to California 30 years ago; Shannon fell in love with the flavors and people of Baja the first time she visited. Together, we have explored both sides of the Baja peninsula in our Piper Comanche airplane. In our opinion, no place on the planet combines the mild weather (low humidity), cool breezes, warm sun and sand, and the peaceful tranquility of Pedazo de Cielo (little slice of heaven)!
Shannon Shields purchased this House in 2017
Why Shannon Shields chose Lengüeta Arenosa
This is a special home on a pristine beach. The house was expanded in the early 2000s to include two upstairs bedrooms and a luxury spa bath. Most of the homes here have seen better days, with dorm-type furnishings and run-down interiors/exteriors. Our home has been lovingly restored with new paint, furnishings, comfortable beds and top-tier bedding. Each room has been lovingly and tastefully decorated to appeal to the most discriminating guest.
What makes this House unique
Updated kitchen and open floor plan. All new appliances, including a modern dishwasher (a rarity on this beach). Perfect for large and small groups. Beautiful views from every room with a 7-mile white sand beach as your backyard. Plush outdoor seating on the magnificent beach side with breathtaking vistas. At this end of the playa, there is very little beach use. To the immediate right of the house is a bird/marine wildlife sanctuary with three miles of secluded beach to enjoy . We reside at the very end of the road, which keeps road noise to a bare minimum and ensures maximum enjoyment.

Awesome All Around! Exceptional Value For a Family
The place was everything as described! The location is perfect, on the beach and steps away from a great preserve trail! There were 6 of us and there is no question the place could accommodate more as advertised. The house was stocked with plenty of towels and necessities for our stay and fire wood bundles are just down the road. Simply put when we come back we will be staying here. The people in the area are friendly and helpful. Guy and Shannon's recommendations on places to eat and things to see and do are a must, best tamales ever! Waves were perfect for surfing and the fishing was incredible, caught over 200 sport fish in 6 hours! We went for morning and late afternoon jogs on the beach and the sea shell hunting is a must. Really appreciated Guy and Shannon checking in via email from time to time to make sure our stay was going well. You may find other accommodations in the area but there isn't one we would have rather stayed at! We enjoyed gathering on the back patio for breakfast and coffee and then winding down by the fire pit in the evenings. I would say if you stay here and don't like the accommodations and location then Vacation Home Rentals aren't for you! Thank You Guy and Shannon
Jeff- thanks for being a great guest! We are humbled by your words and great review. We love sharing our dream with other who appreciate how wonderful and peaceful it is at the end of the spit.
We hope to see you again, soon!

EXCEEDED Our Expectations
My friends and I wanted to rent a property to get away rom everyday stress and just relax! We arrived and were greeted by a friendly local who welcomed us and said we were not going to want to leave. Was he right! As soon as we walked in we fell in love. We loved the decor and how clean everything was. Then we saw the view. Just perfection. The beach was a few steps from the house. It feels like you have your own private beach. Guy was great at providing details on how to arrive and recommendations of what to do during our stay. Horse rental and ATVs are around then corner. We had too much fun just enjoying food, drinks and our view. I can’t wait to book this house again. This was exactly what we needed!!
We are so glad you had a great time! Thank you so much for staying at our home. We love this beach and are thrilled to share it with wonderful people like you and your friends.
Beautiful Beach House!!!
The house is located at the end the street directly on the beach. On one side is the Pacific Ocean and the other is a lagoon and bird sanctuary. Absolutely perfect place to rest, relax and be at peace. Fall asleep to sounds of the ocean and the next morning walk along the private beach with coffee in hand! Big bedrooms, bathrooms and wonderful kitchen, grill and patio for having dinner, drinking wine, and enjoying your time with family and friends. This place is a little piece of heaven here on Earth. Wonderful owners who have paid attention to ever detail. I will recommend stay here to anyone and will be back to visit again soon!
Thanks so much! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time. Hopefully you had a chance to enjoy the wonderful wine country that is so close by. Next time you come we hope that you will be able to take advantage of the wonderful fishing at Vonny's Fleet - Ivan is wonderful!!!!
O.M.G! A high-end home on a world class beach!
What a great place. Clean, modern, exquisitely appointed, in contrast with many of the shabby, run-down houses farther down the beach. Right on the end, one ginormous house away from a world-class bird and marine wildlife habitat/sanctuary .
Activities include panga boat fishing, golf at two golf resorts and the wonderful Valle de Guadalupe wine district. Lots of fun and quirky restaurants near the house, and close enough to Ensenada proper to take advantage of the exploding food and craft beer scene there.
Shannon is a lovely and gracious hostesss, too. The towels, linens and room appointments are spa hotel-like. Her representative, Ron Colman, was there to check us in and to see to our every need. A true concierge experience!
Thanks so much for the wonderful review. You were a fantastic guest and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Hopefully you were able to get Sharky's for their Friday steak and lobster! It's absolutely to die for. Hope to have you back soon!!!
