Best trip ever!

  • 5 of 5

Best swimming beach, most beautiful house and Ginger's friends and family gave us the inside track to the best surfing instructor, the best day out fishing, the best organic chicken and fish off the boat - could not have been more magical! Recommend it on every level to friends and relatives.

Seaglass beach!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome vacation! I visited in February & returned in June. My stay was perfect, I love that house. You fall asleep hearing the waves crashing & awake to the beautiful beach and ocean just steps away. Seaglass hunters will love this spot, I found dozens of pieces. Ginger is so gracious as is her staff . I can't imagine staying anywhere else & am looking forward to returning. Pura Vida🌴

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house on the beach was awesome. We stayed here in early June and the weather was wonderful. Deep sea fishing right in your backyard! My husband and I loved our vacation there with great friends. We will definitely be returning!

True Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to find this absolute jewel! Stayed for 8 days in February 2016 and returned for 9 days in June. Cannot wait to return again! This is absolutely the perfect house for us. Steps to the beach, fishing boats, running/walking on the beach and searching for shells and sea glass. Opening up the house and being able to see the ocean and hear the surf at all time is heaven. If you must have a/c this is not the house for you but if you are seeking pure, natural and amazing peace-this is the place. Ginger, Grethel and Rafe are all amazing. I could go on and on about this place but I'll just say my only regret is that I had to leave. The Rancho Authentica will be our main destination for many more trips!

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for me and my family (two toddlers). Ginger was extremely responsive and helpful, even when she wasn't physically on the property she was absolutely a pleasure to rent from. Garza was the perfect place with shade, small waves (which actually got huge with a big swell - an unexpected awesome surprise for surfer husband), tide pools and shells galore. The stars at night were unprecedented! We quickly adjusted to a 530 am start, as someone mentioned it's quite busy on the street, and went to bed before 9. It was lovely to be in sync with nature. The Rancho is totally set up; Ginger has thought of everything. It's a great space to cook, hang and enjoy the waves. The outdoor shower was a highlight for my kiddos! Everything was within a quick drive, and that made it easy to find what we needed. Thanks Ginger for making our first real family vacation such a huge success!
