Every winter my husband and I fly south from Maine to escape the long brutal winter. This year was my husbands turn to find the place to go. Since we drive( and I am the driver!) to our destination I was pretty reluctant when he chose Rosarito, Mexico. The pictures looked beautiful on the site but seeing it in person was truly a delight for both of us. Joe and Loretta have put so much work into their beautiful Villa. Our 3 month stay was exceptional and so relaxing. We played tennis almost everyday and took frequent walks in San Antonio Del Mar. The in house sauna was amazing for our tired bodies! The deck has the most amazing view of the Coronado Islands and the sunsets are gorgeous!! We met so many nice people in Rosarito which is about 5 miles south of the Villa. The restaurants were all great and shopping for food was easy to do. We each had our teeth cleaned ($ 40 US) and had our yearly Blood Tests done and saw a Doctor at the local hospital ($ 100 US) for BOTH of us!! Wonderful care with English speaking Dr's and staff. I was so pleased with their healthcare system!!

Joe and Loretta are the nicest people and so hospitable! We are extremely happy we made the long trip to the Baja and looking forward to another stay with the Taylors! We highly recommend their place if you are looking for a relaxing getaway :) Thank you Joe and Loretta for opening up your beautiful Villa for others to enjoy!

Love Jon and Cari Drew

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

Since this was our first time to drive into Mexico, Joe and Loretta suggested we meet right across the border in San Diego and they would guide us down to their place. What a thoughtful way to start our stay! They showed us around Rosarito and pointed out places we might need or want to try during our stay. They were available for anything we needed but never intrusive at all and we had the solitude and peaceful days we were seeking. The villa was all we'd hoped for and more... comfortable, spacious, fully furnished, and beautiful. And the view!!!!!!!!! We could have lived on the terrace (and practically did). Gorgeous sunsets and dolphins - wow! We felt safe and secure in the community and had no worries going into Rosarito or Ensenada. We would return in a heartbeat.

Safe, Charming with a Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

My wife said, I know the place is gorgeous, but will we be safe? She trusts my judgement as a retired 25 year cop, and I said YES. Now, renting here 10 weeks this year, we know first hand the charm, beauty and safeness. Being in a gated community, with security verifying all who come and go, felt good. And driving the short 20 minutes from the boarder on a major highway was easy.

We've taken day trips exploring the area: the wine country to the south, local shopping, and area restaurants. We're from the LA area, so just like home, we went any place during the day, but at night were a little less adventurous.

I write about safety concerns, as friends joined us for a weekend and I learned they were apprehensive about coming. They said when leaving, our over-concern was misplaced. I guess that make sense, as my wife had similar questions on our first trip.

As I said the first weekend we came, we will be back.

WOW!!! Breathtaking Beautiful Inside & Outside!

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Loretta, thank you so much for offering your villa for those of us looking for the solace the ocean offers. Your posted pictures do not do your villa justice. While we didn't use every amenity, we found ourselves settling into a comfort zone that met our needs for this visit. We anxiously look forward to many return visits, each time exploring another of one of your thoughtful suggestions whether it be a good restaurant, shopping, etc. The week went by slowly in my mind, which is what I believe the ocean does to you, and it was very hard to leave. Our only consolation is that we will be back and probably sooner than expected! You are the best hosts and such good people! It was the best decision ever to contact you. Your villa met everyone one of our needs and more. Single level, king bed, quiet, unobstructed oceanfront/beach view and access. Beautiful kitchen, dining and living areas with baths to match. Didn't try the sauna this time, but promise to the next time. The deck is amazing...truly, truly amazing. WOW!!!

Soul soothing. The winter ocean and surf were mesmerizing.

  • 5 of 5

On our first long weekend visit we said, "We must come back." And we did, for the month of January. We walked the beach daily, had hordevoirs and wine nightly watching the sunset, then a fire in the deck fireplace. Our evenings included watching old movies on NetFlix. Few people on the beach, it's like we had it to ourselves. The winter ocean and surf was mesmerizing. Birds, occasional dolphins and even a whale sighting was part of our entertainment. We are avid travelers in and out of the US, but there was something different here. The serenity and quietness of the place, the surroundings, soothed our souls. All this and eight books later, our month was over. We shall return.

Huge deck with incomparable ocean views. Spacious, comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 10 days in this wonderful home overlooking the Pacific and the Coronados Islands. We spent most of our time on the spacious deck, watching birds, dolphins, and even a pod of pilot whales. The house is spacious, with high ceilings, a very-well equipped kitchen, a comfortable bedroom, 3 baths (2 inside and one outside, with a shower for cleaning the sand off after being on the beach.) The sofa makes into a queen-size bed, and there is an extra chaise which can be used for sleeping. There is even a Finnish sauna. The owners, Loretta and Joe, who live upstairs, could not have been more accommodating, but were also careful to be unobtrusive, always calling before coming around. They are knowledgeable about the area and helpful with suggestions . We have family in the area, and it was a perfect place to have them over, to enjoy the deck and the beach. We will definitely be back, and I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone wanting to enjoy the beauty of Baja, especially the wildlife and the sunsets.
