They come everyday in the AM and again in the afternoon. Sometimes they are out all day and they put on a better show than at Seaworld. Truly amazing sunsets. At night you can see all the stars and the Milky Way. Also, if you stay up late you can also catch the moon setting and sparkling over the ocean as well.

Hi Paul, I am Bob Neilson's wife, and I wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic weekend (June 2-4)! I would never stay anywhere else besides your place, it was beautiful and in a great location. We also trekked out to the wine country with our friends and had a fun adventure. We appreciate all the information you provided to Bob.
Hasta luego... Bonnie Neilson
Thanks a million everything was perfect. I had more than a good time the house was everything it was in the pictures. I think we're gonna try to go for a little longer next summer so I will be keeping in touch with you. The locals were great, the food was great, and my wife said La Fonda's spa can really give wonderful massages. My only regret was having to come back to our 110 degree weather, but someone has to. So thanks again.

Sue and I have owned our vacation villa since 2005. We put our hearts & soul into making it the relaxing 'Dream Villa' that we would want from a rental.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Owner chose Playas de Rosarito Municipality
The views from our 3 decks are so amazing that all you will want to do when you get there is to sit, relax and enjoy them. There is something magical about our views. Guests talk about it all the time.
What makes this Villa unique
It is super peaceful, safe and what you don't get from the photo's is the soft sound of the ocean below which adds to the amazing experience. The world slows down when you sit on out front deck and relax.

Ready to Return
This was our very first reservation through the Homeaway website. I was semi skeptical of the condo description. Upon our arrival I was concerned due to it being next to an un occupied Hotel resort. Cathy graciously met us at the door and washer every possible concern away. She personally walked us up and opened the door to the cool ocean breeze. Hands down, this has been the best experience I have ever had. Cathy met every one of our expectations by coordinating extra services that will be offered. Every room and living area was clean. The scenery is amazing and we highly recommend this Condo to anyone that would like to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing getaway. We can not wait to return. Thank you Paul and Sue!!!
My husband and I and three kids loved our stay at this condo. The condo was spacious, clean and very nicely decorated. The beds were comfortable, linens and towels were all very nice. The kitchen was fully equipped. They had cute "beachy" dinnerware. The family room area was super cozy and they had a great Direct TV package.
We loved the three decks and the expansive ocean views. We enjoyed the gas firepit and the gas BBQ worked great.The condo is not right on the beach but it is only about a 10 minute walk to get down there. There was a guard there the whole time monitoring the community. The neighbors were also very friendly.
I cant think of anything that this condo is missing. Cathy the property manager is awesome. She helped us find our new favorite taco shop in that area. We would definitely recommend this condo.
This was our second visit to Paul and Sue's condo and we loved it just as much as we did on our first visit last year. The condo is large, well decorated, with a well furnished kitchen and has the most amazing view. We would sit on the deck for hours and loved dining at "home" watching the sunsets. All the superlatives written in the previous reviews are true.
Cathy is always available for any problems or suggestions and is very charming.
Great view and plenty of space...
When we arrived at the home and opened the door we were wowed by the view. Being on a bluff makes such a difference. The rental property pictures did not show a photo to the left side, which was more industrial looking, with development in progress. We took most of our pictures facing the opposite direction, in such a way that you could not see the properties to the right of the patio. Two of the three patios of this second floor home, were spacious, especially the one off both the master bedroom/ dining area. We had most of our meals there. Having so many windows around the home made it feel so much larger. The fireplace was ok, but you have to know how to deal with the damper.
The home had plenty of living area space. The kitchen had a blender, which was used frequently! There were no other renters on either side of us during our stay, which made for great privacy!
Cathy was excellent. She went above and beyond, particularly with our transportation needs, to assist us. She answered any questions we had in a timely manner. She scheduled the birthday cake for the time we requested, and had the home decorated with roses, before we arrived. Truly a wonderful addition. (We would highly recommend this!) The sofa was super comfy and large.
The directions to the home were clear and easy to understand, as well as the information provided for activities in the general area. (We would, however, advise looking into reviews of the restaurants in Puerto Nuevo, known for it's lobster). We recommend you stock up on groceries before you arrive, as it is a bit of a drive to locate a store from the rental.
The reason we gave the home a 4 star rating , rather than five was due to several things. When we tried the garbage disposal, black gunk spurted out. (We did inform Cathy of this). We did not use it the rest of our stay, covering it with paper towels, due to the smell. The oven was very slow and when we did use it, baked unevenly. The kitchen could really use some updating. Cupboards, stove, counters... There were plenty of utensils and dishes to use. The floors were not as clean as they should have been. All of our feet were black not long after we walked around the home. The clothes washes was dirty, with caked on soap...needs a good cleaning.
The beds were decorated nicely. The master was quite soft and we experienced back aches. We spent one night on the sofa.
All in all this was a very nice place! Thank you for sharing your home!
We are glad you had a great time and we appreciate all the feedback. We have addressed the issues brought up and we are happy to say that are no longer issues or at least as far as we can help. We came in right after this group and our kitchen was actually clean and spotless, the garbage disposal was also clean and working fine. I even put my hand in it to check. Our cleaning lady makes sure all the tile floors are super clean and smelling "pine sol" fresh when you enter. We highly recommend people taking off their shoes when they enter as most of Baja is made up of dirt roads. Walking around Baja your shoes will pick up dirt and if you walk around our place the dirt will get on the floors especially if you are there for a week. We also pride ourselves on our super, soft comfy beds with 1800 threadcount sheets. People love how comfy and soft they are. We obviously can't make them hard for special needs clients so maybe (in the future) feel free to ask what kind of beds we have before you go. We try to do our best to be accommodating. Thanks again for the feedback! Cheers, Paul & Sue
We truly had the most fantastic time...this was a late booking for us as we had family come in from Canada and wanted to do something a little different. Paul and Sue were super accommodating, even after I realized I had mixed up my dates. We were sent letters full of information on things to do, places to eat etc. While we travel frequently to the larger Mexican cities, this was our first time to this area and we truly were pleasantly surprised with the offerings....every night we left our sliding doors open and listened to the waves crashing...we watched the dolphins playing in the waves...my stepson rented a surf board for ten dollars for three days and tried his best to ride the waves in....the showers had great water pressure...I have chronic health issues and unfortunately needed medical attention..Cathy the property manager suggested a clinic and I had first rate care at the most beautiful hospital I have ever seen...check out sanoviv.com....Dr Lorena was both kind and knowledgeable....it was so nice....thanks Paul and Sue...we look forward to our next visit. The beach was lovely...I even went for a walk on my own one night, with Loba, the security dog and felt completely safe....
THE PERFECT HIDEOUT!
My wife and I stayed at "Villa Paraiso" for three nights and only regret that we couldn't stay longer. Everything in the description of the condo is real and not a "sales effort". We live in Southern California and have visited many places along the coast in Baja California. This time was the absolute best!
The drive down is easy and made easier by the excellent directions given by both Paul and Cathy. The location, close to the village of La Mision, is very good because it is away from the runaway development of Rosarito. Instead, the location is reminiscent of the Baja we remember from many years ago. The condo itself is exactly as described. Wonderfully relaxing with superb views from all rooms and the three decks. The design and décor are just perfect for this part of the world and the amenities such as the outdoor grill, the fire pit, the audio visual equipment, and the truly excellent kitchen make life easy for the vacationer. The local hotels are great to visit and we enjoyed lunch at our old friend, the "Original Hotel La Fonda".
The only disappointment was that walking to the almost perfect beach took longer than we would have liked but we went anyway and enjoyed it. We will always remember the cocktail hour watching the sun set with a glass of wine and later, steaks from the grill and yes, a little more wine. This is truly the perfect hideout and we will be back.
