About the Property
EXOTIC SURF VIEWS from all the kitchen, dining and entertainment areas.
Come enjoy the comforts of your own home, sprinkled with a Baja's Charm. Plan a Spring or Summer trip on our fabulous semi-private beach. Our weather is the same as San Diego(45 minutes North). Our best months are all year round.
The Ocean setting of the house sports a surf view all the way to the south end of the beach. We are exactly in the middle. There is a a mile and a half of beach in front of the house. Just TEN STEPS off the patio, you sink your toes into the soft, warm sand.
Our San Diego architect took maximum advantage of the ocean setting, lining both upstairs and downstairs with 4 X 8 foot panes of glass. (Very Unusual in a Mexican House) As a result, the Sunsets are both picturesque as well as a beautiful way to conclude your day. Fall/Winter and Spring are the best! (SEE PICTURES)
The house sleeps can sleep up to 8, but is ideal just 6 (3 couples) or two couples and two kids. In the upstairs bedrooms, we have two comfortable, recently upgraded Kings with Hotel quality sheets. The downstairs, is like one large Master Bedroom complete with fireplace, refrigerator, microwave and private bathroom. When we visit, my wife and I love it because we can both hear as well as see the waves. We sleep in the double bed. When there is a larger group or kids , we utilize the adjacent futon or foldout double bed. It is an ideal room to be inside the house, but separate from the kids. You can still keep a watchful eye on them by peeking over the railing. In the daytime it doubles as the game room with a mini ping pong/pool table and a chess set.
La Mision is a small, gated, patrolled, beach community with good restaurants close by. It is dotted with small markets, taco stands, Red Cross and a Police Station. There are an auto parts, a bakery and other small shops. For larger or tourist shopping we are only 18 and 25 minutes from two major cities. If you desire to visit Walmart, Home Depot, or other major chain stores, we have them.
As you step off the patio into the soft sand, look both ways. There is a mile and a half of enjoyment in front of you. We prefer the walk to the North for privacy. It is like being on your own private island. There is never a crowd. You will just have to experience the solace and tranquility to understand our feelings.
On the other hand, if you are a SURFER, we have a GOOFY FOOTED break right out front. The World renowned K-38 is just North of us, while Salasipuedes ( Hawaii type waves) and San Miguel are to the South. Check the internet listings for other Baja surf breaks.
CONGRATULATIONS DENVER! Ol' man Manning just retired. Now, maybe the Chargers might have a chance! During the NFL football season, we offer the Premium package with 185 channels. In addition to our SUNDAY NFL TICKET, we have kids channels and Spanish channels. The NFL allows you to watch all eight morning football (10 am. games. ) Then, in the afternoon(1 pm.), you can watch the remaining West Coast teams. Of course, you can always, just turn to the RED ZONE channel' and catch every score from every game. We also offer numerous other sports when football is out of season. Don't worry ladies, there are plenty of other channels to choose from.
For the professional golf enthusiasts, the season has started again. Hawaii, West Coast , Florida and Texas swings have concluded. The young bucks,Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler(San Diego) are continuing to dominate. Old man Michaelson (Rancho Santa Fe) had a great showing at Pebble Beach.
Remember for regular golfers, our Ocean course at Baja Mar is just 7 minutes down the road. Try your luck, but be sure to bring extra golf balls.
March Madness was a hoot. Congratulations, Villanova on your come from behind victory!
Congrats, Chile on your thrilling upset of Argentina in penalty kicks. The Olympics in Brazil are coming.
If you are a Volleyball Enthusiast, like I was for over 20 years, there is a court right out front on the beach. Nets are found at the beach level in the Boogie board room. Just bring your ball! For over ten years, I hosted the La Fonda, 2 Man Beach Tournament with ten courts in front of the house. In addition, with the help of my friends at CUERVO TEQUILLA, our committee put on the largest International Beach tournament(82 courts) at Estero Beach, just South of Ensenada. Over the years, a number of the players stayed at our houses in La Mision.
The weather allows us to have year round activities for kids and adults. The horseback riding on the beach is more like horseback walking. It is great for kids as well as being romantic for adults at Sunset. But, do not expect lively horses. It is more like horse walking than riding; however, they will, deliver you right to the front of the house on your return trip. Also, Boogie Boarding, Sea Shell collecting, sand castles and surf fishing are fun for the kids .
At the South end of the beach there are food vendors selling all types of Mexican food. The fresh fruit(Pica de Gallo) and the ripe Coconuts are the most popular.

- (2) There are two King size beds in the upstairs bedrooms . The downstairs act as one large Master bedroom complete with wood burning fireplace, refrigerator, mini bar, bathroom and microwave.(for those late night snacks.) When we are entertaining families/children, we convert the Master into a bunk room for the kids. We use the extra double futon couch and fold out double couch for the kids.. During the day time, the Master doubles as a family room to entertain guests. For our wedding, we moved the furniture against the walls and had a dance floor in front of the fireplace. It is quite a large room. ...moreless

LA FONDA Restaurant and Spa is one mile North. For their Sunday Brunch, You had better be hungry and thirsty. The Bloody Mary's I believe are still included.
Year Purchased: 1970
About the owner: This has been our weekend home away from home for some time now. Living in San Diego, it is just a 45 minute drive from the border, down the toll road to the house. When you are watching the dolphins feed just before a magnificent sunset, with you favorite beverage in hand, you will forget about the work week that you just finished. By listening to the crashing waves as they lull you to sleep, you return to the States invigorated, refreshed and ready for a new week..
Why the Owner Chose La Misión, Baja California, Mexico:
If you are looking for lots of people, loud music, and younger 18 year old bars - Rosarito (20 minutes North) will be more suited to your taste. Ensenada (25 minutes south), on the other hand, offers a large, crowded city atmosphere with a fabulous fish market, reasonable fish tacos and lots of shopping. After you arrive, please, visit both nearby cities and see why we chose our quaint little spot on the beach in between them. We have a number of restaurants within a mile. La Fonda, The Light House, Cieto Lindo, Maganas, and the La Mision Hotel to name a few. Eight miles to the North is PUERTO NUEVO Baja's, Finest Lobster Villiage. A whole town of 20+ Lobster restaurants. Our favorite is La Perlita. It is located at the South East corner of the first cross street going South. Tell Lupe that "Ricardo de La Mision" says Hola(Hello). According to the story, a number of years ago, we built his second story with our lobster parties. We boiled them in a twenty gallon milk can. Also, we used to ship his burros (the largest ones) cooked and frozen back to Chicago for our family Christmas presents. August is Wine Country month - Guadalupe Valley is 25 miles South East through a beautiful valley. But, you can taste wine and cheese all year round (preferably on weekends for wines and weekdays for Cheese). The third week of August, they promote a famous Vendemia with Jazz concerts, special Barbecued lamb chops, and wine tastings fiestas The Sunday conclusion is a Paella and wine tasting event. It has become so popular that tickets are sold on the internet in March for an August week of parties For more intimate details of the various tastings, check with Dick. COME JOIN US and SEE FOR YOURSELF!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Don't forget to look on the internet for other BAJA SURFING SPOTS. Yes, we have a GOOFY FOOTED break out front, but there are a number of other options nearby. As mentioned above, if you like football or soccer, you don't have to miss any of your NFL games.The family can enjoy the beach while you keep track of your favorite team. You can watch two games or surf the channels for the other six. To this day our resident Historian, Charlie Wild, 90 years young,(October 2016) tells us about the days before the toll road, electricity and the telephone. He says, "Those were the good 'ol days". Of course, we have to imagine how we could have existed without King size beds, Direct TV, the Wireless internet, Gas BBQs, and our Satellite dish. The beach is still as pristine, peaceful, and uninhabited as the day we arrived here. We live in Pacific Beach in San Diego. If you are from CALIFORNIA, you will not believe the difference on our uncrowded beach. Take a walk to the North and see for yourself. Come check it out! You'll be surprised. ENJOY! DICK and ARACELY
