This is the way to do Mexico!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the holidays at this magnificent condo and it blew our expectations away. The unit, the grounds, the views, the amenities...all top notch. My favorite part was going to bed each night listening to the crashing waves.

Shawn was extremely helpful with restaurant suggestions. He was also always accessible if needed.

We plan on coming back to Shawn’s place many more times over the years. I suggest you do the same...just not when I want to go.

BEST Baja Getaway Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is gorgeous & fantastic, with plenty enough room for two couples and it's right on the water. This complex has the best 24hr security my wife and have ever experienced.

The condo owner Shawn was also great and easy to access when needed, he gave us all of the area info (Restaurants/Bars/Winery etc...), check in was very easy and the condo had it own parking spot right next to the elevator.

The wife and I are already making plans to visit Shawn's condo again before the summers is over...

Absolutely Outstanding. THANK YOU, Shawn!

  • 5 of 5

I'm afraid to write my true thoughts for fear of my review attracting so many guests, that the place becomes way too booked. First, Shawn was an absolute dream to rent from - kind, responsive, and super helpful. The condo and views are stunning. Everything felt so homey...from the crazy cool artwork to the oversized beach towels and massive jacuzzi tub. It was an absolute perfect weekend getaway. We'll be back . In fact, I plan to rent this home from Shawn a bunch this year...until I break down and buy a unit of my own at Club Marena! :)

  • 5 of 5

Last minute get away couldn't have been more perfect. This unit is phenominal and the grounds are gorgeous. It was more than we expected. It is a luxury community and the pictures don't do this place justice. The first day we stayed in and just stared at the incredible view all day long (we never got tiered of it). In the evening we took a 10 min Uber ride (roughly $5) into Rosarito for some Tacos, beer and good music. The next day we took an Uber ride ($28) to Valle de Guadalupe for some wine tasting. Uber rides in Mexico are way cheaper than the USA. Once in the valley it cost about $2-5 to ride from one winery to another but you might have to wait a bit longer than normal. However, with the view and a glass of wine in hand, it was never a problem. When we returned to condo after wineries it was so nice to swim in a warm pool at night (one of my favorite things to do). Long story short our stay was amazing and we can't wait to go back. Shawn is the host with the most.

We'll be back! Better than advertised, great host,amazing views, awesome location, safe, cozy, clean

  • 5 of 5

We were staying as two middle-aged couples celebrating positive cancer-related news for two sisters.

You really can’t ask for more when it comes to location. The complex is situated between the free road and the Pacific Ocean and about 6 miles south of the city well outside of the hustle and bustle of Rosarito. Just north is a short bridge, across which you’ll find a small cluster of businesses (liquor store, taco stand, more). Just south is an internationally renowned wellness retreat. Puerto Nuevo is only a short drive south. Ensenada is just a bit further. Wineries are also an option.

The guarded and gated complex increases your sense of safety and security, enhancing the quality of your down time. The property has walking paths, two pools, community bbqs and more. The beach and the famed K-38 surf spot are accessible from the bluff using either of two pathways (one stepped and one ramped).

The view from the balcony is amazing. You are treated to surfers, whales (seasonal) and gorgeous sunrises. The sightline is directly along the coast offering an appealing landscape for photo buffs. The sound of the surf is incredibly relaxing and the breeze through the home in wonderful.

The kitchen in the unit has great appliances, lots of spices, enough plates and cookware to get the job done. The bbq on the balcony was very convenient, the dining room table was massive, the living room was spacious, the large smart tv and related devices were nice.

The master bedroom and bath are fabulous. The view through the floor-ceiling windows is simply stunning.

The second bedroom is quite adequate and comfortable. The en suite bathroom is also accessed via the hallway however with only two couples it is as private as you make it. There are just two units per floor making this condo feel even more secluded.

The owner was available to us for our entire stay though we didn’t need a thing. As renters, we purchased all the normally expected supplies; paper towels, trash bags, baggies, toilet paper, etc. but there was certainly plenty to get us through the first critical hours after arriving (yay!).

We rate this stay as a solid five stars. The unit is better than advertised. The owner takes pride in his unit and it shows.

Thank you Shawn and Amy. We have numerous stories and will have many pleasant memories of our stay for years to come.
