Owner info

Year Purchased: 1977

About the owner: My wife and I live in Long Beach, CA with our two sons Keegan and Cooper. I've been visiting Las Gaviotas since I was little and currently visit 5-6 times a year with the family.

Why the Owner Chose Las Gaviotas, B.C., Mexico:
Casa Purnell was purchased as a vacant lot in the mid 1970's when Las Gaviotas was just developed. My parents were regular visitors to Rosarito Beach and Ensenada, and ended up making one of the best investment choices in their lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
