CHRISTMAS ON THE BEACH, YEAR ROUND - THE WEATHER IS GREAT!
Come enjoy the comforts of your own home, sprinkled with a Baja's Charm. Plan a Summer or fall 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 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 panels 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 Sunset Pix! (SEE PICTURES)
The house sleeps can sleep only 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 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, DVD Player (Bring your own unless you are 4 to7 years old) 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, Office 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 come visit 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 Philadelphia and # 9 Nick Foles on their first Super Bowl victory. Sorry, New England.(No luck this time!) Now, the Chargers have moved to L.A. Thank goodness. 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 and numerous types of Music 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. Just grab the remote #'s 703 - 717 We also offer numerous other sports when football is out of season. Don't worry, LADIES, there are plenty of other channels for you to choose from. That's why we have a TV in the Bar adjacent to the kitchen.
For the professional golf enthusiasts, the FED EX Cup is still on the horizon. Congrats Jason Day for winning Torrey Pines and ol' man Phil for finally winning in Mexico. If you need DISCOUNTED TICKETS for the Pro's at Torrey next January, give me a call or e-mail. Kudos to Patrick Reed(Masters and Brooks Koepka(US. OPEN) Here's hoping that the British Open won't be boring this year.
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 again, on your 2nd win in three years. I was backing my Chicago team, Loyola until they lost in the final four.
The Soccer World Cup is on right now. It seems that a lot of the favorites are being upset.
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.
FOR THE KIDS, we also have - Boogie and skim Boarding, Sea Shell collecting, sand castles, sand crab catching and surf fishing.
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. Do not go on Sunday. It is crowded.
COME VISIT US AND SEE!!!
