Property description

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).

NEW OUTDOOR WETBAR AND WATERFALL

We just completed our renovation of our outdoor terrace and added a large wetbar, waterfall, and lounge area!

ACTIVITIES

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.

IDEAL MICROCLIMATE

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.

SURFER'S DREAM

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.

LOCATION

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.

THE SPACE

2 bedrooms (California King in Master and queen in guest BR), 2.5 bathrooms, spacious oceanfront patio area, upstairs oceanfront terrace off the master bedroom, 3rd oceanfront deck with chaise lounges, and additional interior private garden patio.

*An assortment of surfboards, boogie boards, wetsuits, and beach chairs/toys available in the garage for your personal use - free!

*The beach is just a few steps off your patio. No elevators to worry about.

*There is a private garage connected to the villa with space for one car. Parking in the attached garage allows you easy access to bring in all your luggage, toys, and groceries, instead of lugging them through underground parking garages, stairs, and elevators as in the condos. Additional gated parking is available directly outside the villa's front door.

*High-Speed Internet is on and ready for use and is not shared with any other units to ensure you full streaming capability.

*All household amenities are available including a full kitchen ready for use (dishwasher, cookware, table settings, coffee maker, blender, microwave), washer/dryer, two flatscreen TVs in living room and master bedroom, plenty of fresh linens and towels, etc.

*In the area there are plenty of restaurants including some of the best just down the street and walking distance, like the K38 Taco Shop, Calypso, and Ollie's.

*The safe, gated community includes 24 hour security guards.

*Check In and Check Out is easy via lock-box and your manager is available via phone and email 24 hours a day.

Stay extra days to visit:
1. Guadalupe Valley, the wine region (ask about our recommended van/driver so you don't have to drive).
2. Ensenada, the port town with plenty of street side activities such as people watching, shopping, the famous Hussong's Cantina, and a harbour boat tour.
3. Golfing, surfing, paddleboarding, hiking, horse back riding--these are just a few of the many activities.
4. Shopping the arts and home improvement crafts of Rosarito and La Barca.
5. Ride an ATV on the local sand dunes.

This place is vacation ready. Just bring your family and friends and pick up some Coronas and tacos at the store just around the corner!

Manager info

Why Baja California, Mexico:
We have lived and rented in all major complexes in the greater Rosarito area and have settled on this particular villa for its perfect weather. There are oftentimes colder winds when living directly oceanfront. The large Club Marena condo buildings block these winds from the villas, so while the condos can get cold and windy and only get direct morning sun (they're east facing), the villas stay warm with a slight breeze while they bask in the sun all day (we're south facing). Our first full-time year was spent at Calafia. While they have gorgeous ocean views, they are directly on a point and get the most wind of anywhere in northern Baja. The common areas (gym, pool, jacuzzi, clubhouse, etc.) are so frigid that no guests nor owners can enjoy them (not to mention that they don't heat their pool and jacuzzi). There is no sandy beach and no place to enjoy the surf or boogie board. The next year we lived at Gaviotas to try and move further south with somewhere to play in the waves and there were so many people, condos, and houses that it felt like a bustling city. Interior long roads with stop signs did not give off the relaxed Baja vibe we had been looking for. With a community of over 400 (large and densely populated) individual units crammed into a 500m area, there was no community space remaining for trees, grass, or any sense of natural beauty or nature. The small common pool area was always packed from such a densely populated community. We were ready to leave Baja after 2 years and look elsewhere, but a friend told us about the villas at Club Marena. The day we visited was gorgeous, while a marine layer was hanging over the rest of Rosarito. Our friend explained that it wasn't chance, but that there was a true micro-climate due to our protected bay and the condo buildings. While we were skeptical, after 3 years of renting a villa at Club Marena, we just had to buy and make it permanent!
