About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bath Right On The Beautiful La Salina Beach

This large house sits right on a beautiful beach of the Pacific Ocean. Located in a long-established gated community, the house has two floors with 2 kitchens, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a huge open living room. A cantina is just a few doors down, serving breakfast through dinner. Many local attractions are only a few minutes away, including: Puerto Salina Marina for fishing and boating, Baja Mar for world-class golf, and La Fonda for spa treatments and massage. Ensenada, Puerto Nuevo and Rosarito for shopping, dining and nightlife are about 20 minutes away.

- The Beach -

The La Salina Beach that the house sits on is very wide, with white sand. It is a beach break with variable surf conditions. Point breaks are to the north and south.

- Beach Side of the House (Back) -

The downstairs features a patio with two picnic tables and eight benches. There is an outdoor charcoal BBQ. A lovely cactus garden, with a glass block wall, highlights the ocean view. The master bedroom balcony provides some shade on a hot summer day. There is a hose for washing off after enjoying the beach.

- The Kitchen -

Enter the house by ascending a wheelchair-accessible ramp to the second floor and passing through the wooden double doors with crystal panes. Take a few steps and you are in the kitchen. The house is well-designed for large families or to entertain, and the kitchen is no exception. It has a large island with a gas stove and oven and a large exhaust fan. Additionally, there is an electric stove on the counter. The kitchen is well-lit, and well-stocked with pots, pans and utensils. There is a large refrigerator, microwave, drinking water dispenser and everything you would need in a home's kitchen.

- The Living Room / Dining Room -

Beyond the kitchen is an open space that extends the length of the house to the sliding glass doors to the ocean balcony. It is a large space - about 30 x 90 feet - floored in white marble. There is a nice dining table near the kitchen area, with leaves to make it bigger or smaller. Beyond the dining area is a fireplace with various couches and chairs. Beyond that is a 55" plasma TV with DVD player and surround sound. The far glass wall has two sliding doors onto the ocean-side balcony. Although this is a non-smoking property, you may smoke on the balconies or patios.

- The Master Bedroom -

Walking into the bedroom, on the right is a mirrored bureau against the wall, and then a sliding glass door onto the master bedroom balcony, with stunning ocean views. The balcony has a pink marble floor and low railings (don't fall off!) for lovely views seated or in a wheelchair. The balcony overlooks the patio and cactus garden, and is perfect for watching sunsets over the Pacific. The bed is centered across from the bureau with a window overhead providing views of the marina and down the coastline. A sitting room separates the bedroom from the bathroom. The sitting room has a well-lit desk, with great Wi-Fi signal and an overhead outlet. The bathroom has a tub, shower, toilet, sink and bidet. There is a phone in the room.

- The Marina Ocean View Bedroom -

The large king bed has mirrors over head, and a partial view of the marina from your pillow. It also has a full bathroom with a handicap accessible sink and shower. There is also a large flat-screen projection TV and DVD player in this room.

- The Downstairs -

Walk down steps from the living room into the garage area. To the ocean-side is a whole apartment with a small kitchen, living room, bedroom and dining area. Although not as well stocked as the upstairs kitchen, there are a few plates, utensils and some cooking ware. The living room has a fireplace to keep you warm in the winter. To the right of the stairwell, walking down, is the 'Maid's Quarters'. The 'Maid's Quarters' is a bedroom with no real view, also with a bathroom, and is accessible through the garage. Also downstairs is a single car garage. The driveway can fit two cars and the garage one. There is plenty of additional parking in front of the cantina.

- Additional Details -

The house itself is gorgeous and well situated for a large group or family. It is my family's part-time home, so please enjoy the art on the walls, and home-like feel, but respect our property. There is a stereo ready for a 'regular' (1/8' or 3.5mm) headphone jack upstairs and a speaker set for the same downstairs. The neighbors come down often. If you want to party late and loud, that's fine, but you should consider going down to the beach to do that, where no one will hear you. Fire works are tolerated, but please don't be popping them off at all hours (10 PM is a good cut-off) and do clean up after yourself.

The community of La Salina has a security guard that keeps an eye on the community. There are about 60 houses or so in La Salina. The guys in the cantina will help you out if you have any questions on directions, need to call a taxi or whatever else. The cantina has friendly staff, good cold beer, pool, shuffle board, cable and also sits directly on the ocean.

About Tad Coffin

I live in Southern California and get down to the family beach house in Mexico as often as I can. When we're not there though, we'd love to have you as our guest!

Why Tad Coffin chose Baja California Norte

If you would like to rent a large beach house, close to the border, within walking distance of good food and drink, then this is it. The house is fully handicapped accessible as well.

What makes this house unique

For a beach house in Mexico, this place is huge. Great for a party, a large family or gathering of friends. The cantina and the marina are both only a few hundred feet away. The views are spectacular. The beach is wide and clean with plenty of room. Ensenada and Rosarito are short drives away, or you can ask the cantina to call a taxi. You will not want to leave.

Awesome home, great views, right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Went down for 2 days with a large group, the house is very big, with large open spaces, direct access to the beach that. Tad was great to deal with, no hassles, quick responses. The Cantina 2 doors down is a fun place to have a beer and meet some interesting people.

Only 2 little complaints, one is not even Tad's (homeowner) fault but the controls to open the gate to access the house are very glitchy so having to look for a security guard everytime you want to drive out was a bit of a hassle, again this is not Tad's fault, the developers or homeowners need to fix the gate.

The other one was just an inconvenience, there is very little light in the rear patio, had to use a flashlight to grill some carne asada on Saturday night.

Other than that, everything else was great. Defiantly will rent the house again, and take a camping lantern for the grill :D

Thanks for everything Tad.

Another Great Vacay!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th year of renting Tad's La Salina home. And the vacation just keeps getting better each year. This house works perfectly for our sometimes large group of family and friends. We hang at the beach or on the patio most days, BBQ on the patio, stop by the Cantina in the evenings or for Bloody Mary breakfasts. And a few quick trips into Puerto Nuevo for shopping and eats. It is such a relaxing and fun get-away. We are already talking about next year!!
