Club Marena really is the perfect place to stay when visiting Baja, and this is the best unit within Marena! . Just ten minutes south of the Rosarito Beach Hotel, this two-story villa is located in the best complex in Rosarito because of 1) it's protected location--no northern wind and south facing, so you get tons of warm sunshine and the marine layer of fog stays away, 2) of course its exclusive access to the best surf break in Baja, K-38, 3) it's very own private sandy beach, 4) luxurious and perfectly manicured grounds, 5) heated swimming pool, heated children's pool, and jacuzzi are all heated 24/7 (other condo regimes in the area do not heat their pools and the jacuzzis are heated upon request).
If you would like more information, want to see if we have any specials, or have any questions you want answered, please feel free to send me a message by clicking the "Ask Manager A Question" link on the right side of the page.
NEW OUTDOOR WETBAR AND WATERFALL
We just completed our renovation of our outdoor terrace and added a large wetbar, waterfall, and lounge area!
Surfing and paddleboarding are some of the most popular activities at Club Marena, but just lounging on the patio in a chaise lounge overlooking the ocean, palm trees, pools and lush gardens is quite entertaining, too! There are also tennis courts, a heated oceanfront pool, a jacuzzi that's always hot, lovely oceanfront paths, a private beach, a clubhouse with ping pong, darts, and pool tables, a large gated dog park, and plenty of exploring around the tide pools out front.
Those that live in Southern California will know that a thick marine layer can be present in the mornings of some months and can oftentimes last through the entire day. While this phenomenon is present throughout most of the west coast, Club Marena is unique in that it sits in a micro-climate. The marine layer makes a straight line across the bay from Calafia Point down to Primo Tapia. Club Marena is tucked inside this greater bay. The villas are also protected from the northerly winds by the Calafia point. What wind remains is further diffused by the towers so that our villa and grounds are left with a calm breeze, which is unique to coastal properties. The owners have lived and rented in all major complexes in the greater Rosarito area and have settled on this particular villa for its perfect weather.
The famous K-38 surf break is a 150-300m right point break into a protected bay (there is also a shorter 50-100m punchier left into the same bay). While more southerly facing, the location picks up all swell directions, including Southern swells from Antarctica/New Zealand in our summer and NW swells in our winter. The line-up is always minimal since the only feasible access point is only for those staying at Club Marena. The wind and marine layer (when present) always stay a half mile outside the line-up due to the protected nature of the greater bay that we are in. Conditions are usually glassy as there is also a kelp forest protecting the bay. The inside section is also great for younger groms to learn.
Situated on the small cove at Kilometer 38.5, the villas in Club Marena have long been one of the most sought after residences on the coveted coast of Descanso Bay just south of Rosarito.
