About Chris Tougher
Hi, I'm Chris! I've found that there's nothing better than heading down to Baja for the greatest adventures ever! Come see what Baja is all about and, if you're up for it, come try the stand-up paddleboards I have, too!
Chris Tougher purchased this House in 2006
Why Chris Tougher chose Cabo Punta Banda
I initially was looking for a place just on the other side of the US-Mexico border for an easily accessible weekend getaway. But when I found this house - about two hours south of the border - you'll see for yourself how there is just nothing else like it. The house is definitely off the beaten path - or, more specifically, it's at the end of a twisty, bumpy dirt road. But when you drive over the crest of that final hill and see the Pacific Ocean stretching along the coastline forever and you realize that you're going to be able to stay at this house for as long as you want, the feeling you get is like none other. It's
What makes this House unique
When you walk into the main house, you'll be swept off your feet by the living room's two huge windows overlooking the bay below. Instead of staring at a TV all weekend, you'll be captivated by these two windows - call them your giant plasma TVs if you must - and you'll be transfixed by amazing sunrises, morning fog rolling down the mountain, midday sunshine twinkling off the ocean, birds swooping by, boats meandering along, and maybe even some whales spouting off in the distance. Not only does the house comfortably fit 10 or more guests, but now there is a new loft space to fit four more guests, as well. The loft is separated from the house by an awesome courtyard and has its own separate entrances as, well.

This property was just what a low key group of guys was looking for before one of them got married! Location was incredible, if you love views and the ocean and some quiet! Jose Luis was THE BEST and went out of his way to make the stay incredible. He drove us around, showed us around, gave local advice and was a definite BONUS to this trip!!
It was so great to host all of you! Let us know when you'd like to come back and hope to see you again soon! =D
Unquestionably, the most stunningly beautiful place in Mexico
Our family stayed 4 nights at Ensenada Escape and we didn’t want to go home!! The pictures don’t do it justice, it’s truly even more beautiful than it looks. The main house was very comfortable, it had everything we needed, the view from our bedroom window was insane, waking up to that beauty every morning was truly glorious. The loft house was very comfortable and beautiful with all the comforts of home. We felt very safe there.
Jose Luis was always available to take us paddle boarding or whatever else we wanted to do, he was a great host, he speaks perfect English also. We went fishing off of the rocks down below us and caught dinner almost every night. We felt like we had our own private beach and our own little piece of paradise.
My family and I are planning to return as soon as possible, we highly recommend this place to everyone.
Best Place I've Stayed In Mexico
Like the title says this was by far the best place to stay in Mexico. Pictures cannot even do the view justice. All of the bedrooms in the main house have a spectacular view of the cove below. The only problem we had the whole trip was that one of the toilets would not flush sometimes and the water pressure for the kitchen sink had an issue once but that's all.
Jose Luis is the best! If you don't speak much Spanish he can help you out with whatever you want to do. During our trip with 9 people we rented a van and took a trip to the wineries in La Valle De Guadalupe the first day of our stay and the second day went paddle boarding in the cove. Both trips Jose Luis facilitated everything to make it as worry and hassle free as possible. I personally come to Mexico very often and I would recommend this place to people who go frequently as well as people that are going to Mexico for their first trip. As a matter of fact right when I got home I was talking with my parents and recommended it to them for a friends birthday.
Thanks a bunch Jose Luis you made this trip really special!
The world-famous Bufadora is just a few minutes away and visited by thousands of tourists every year. However, "Ensenada Escape" is located two miles south via dirt road from this tourist attraction, so you're close by to visit, but your stay will never be interrupted by people on their way to La Bufadora.
Plus, there are tons of hikes and many hidden beaches to keep you busy that will be right outside your door, so many guests don't even both with La Bufadora because there are so many other unique experiences to have that all of the tourists will be missing out!
