About Mark & Zach Purnell
Mark and Zach are brothers who manage our longtime family home in Baja California.
Mark & Zach Purnell purchased this House in 1977
Why Mark & Zach Purnell chose Las Gaviotas
Casa Purnell was purchased as a vacant lot in the mid 1970's when Las Gaviotas was just developed. Our parents were regular visitors to Rosarito Beach and Ensenada, and ended up making one of the best investment choices in their lifetime.
What makes this House unique
Casa Purnell is used primarily for friends and family, so you will see a personal touch to the decor of the home from the masks on the wall and local trinkets throughout.

We really liked the unique brick work and coziness of the place. The house is very cool, clean and the community is very safe. The surf break is the best right I have surfed in Northern Baja. I can imagine the beach might get a bit small and the hot tub may get a bit crowded during busy holiday weekends, but no complaints from our group. We will definitely be back. Thank you Mark!!!
It was lovely
Owner was very helpful in every way. We enjoyed it very much.
Such a cute spot! Wish we could’ve stayed longer.
Loved checking in and lighting up the fire pit outside and enjoying the view. I highly suggest grocery shopping in the US or at least before checking in. Once you check in you won’t want to leave. Puerto Nuevo is around the corner. It can be exhausting dealing with the vendors and the food is pretty expensive for Mexico. Walking to Ollie’s Pizza place was great. It’s now our favorite pizza place. Our 5 year old was excited about the pool and beach being so close and she would play in the little loft upstairs. The security is strict and won’t allow children in the jacuzzi which was kind of a bummer. We went during the winter so it was too chilly for the Pool. The owner does mention in the handbook that the lights will trip if you run the heater while the bathroom lights are on but we had read it after our lights went out and the closet where the circuit breaker was locked. Other than that our stay was smooth. The staff and other guests in the gated community were so friendly. Great place to let the kids run around worry free in Mexico.
Another great stay at the Purnell residence. Great property, great location.
Perfect for our family of 4.
Beautiful house great ocean view
We love the house very clean and organized. We had a really nice time definitely coming back
Casa de circulo
Thank you for letting our family rent out your beautiful Las Gaviotas home! We enjoyed our stay in this very comfortable, well-designed space. It had all we needed - everything was user-friendly, we found the gated community to be family-friendly, clean and amenable to our needs. The location was so accessible and couldn't have been better for our shopping and dining needs as well. We enthusiastically recommend Paradise South of the Border and would definitely return. Take care and thanks again :)
Thanks for the wonderful review.
Las Gaviotas is a gated community located about 15 minutes south of Rosarito Beach and about 5 minutes north of Puerto Nuevo.
