My stay at Los Gaviotas

  • 5 of 5

This community was so amazing, the views were breathtaking! We arrive at night, was easy to find, the guards at the gate were very helpful. Our home that we stayed was so inviting, clean and views of the ocean. Enjoyed walks along the ocean, pool and spa. I can't wait to come back and stay longer. Easy taxi services to the local winery's and lobster dinner. I look forward to our next visit! Thank you Los Gaviotas!!!

Great stay for couples/group

  • 5 of 5

Chose this house along with the one next door (Bella Vista) to rent for my 30th birthday. With both houses there were 14 of us total and it was so spacious. There were 5 couples and 4 friends. Both houses have a great set up with a private room downstairs and many bathrooms. The kitchens were very spacious, as were the decks overlooking the ocean with private BBQ grills.

These houses are fully equipped with everything you could ever need. The houses are also in a great location, close to the pool and hot tub, and you can take the shortcut to the left for a short walk to the ocean/beach.

I've stayed in a number of houses in Gaviotas and in my mind these are the best value that you will find. With as many people as we had it never felt crowded and we were able to all hang out with a small porch between both houses.

Definitely recommend this house and we will be back!

Beautiful Ocean Views, with a Great Place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our first time so far beyond the Border was a real treat staying at such a beautiful gated community, a very nice and comfortable home.

Great Pool, Hot tub, tennis. The place had everything you need, the community is a quiet one, not recommended for the big party goers, perfect for family or couples. it was located close to Rosirito but not to close. The food in Rosarito, Puerto Nuevo and Ensanada was outstanding. Fresh fish/lobster/crab every plate. awesome weather!!!

We would highly recommend staying here in Los Gaviatos.

Absolutely amazing trip. Great price.

First of all it was perfectly safe. We have been several times to Diane's houses now. The prices are great for the flawless, beautiful houses we stayed in. We will continue to make the voyage from LA to Diane's houses in Los Gaviotas.
