On the beach...Enjoy the beaches of Baja in safety and tranquility

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bath beachfront home, on quiet beach

When away from home, it is essential to feel as relaxed as possible and we believe you will be at Palacio de Baja.

The rooms are spacious and the furnishings are comfortable, generous and tasteful. The master bedroom sleeps up to five, with one king size bed, and three twin size beds. The second bedroom sleeps up to four with a queen size bed, and two twin size beds. There is also a sofa bed in the main living room that makes into a bed and will sleep two, and a comfortable futon in the common area that will sleep 2 also.

The Dining Room has a beautifully handcrafted table and eight chairs, and another table that seats six, sits near the picture window over looking the pristine beach.

There are two bathrooms with tiled showers, and beautifully decorated to reflect the culture.

On the patio, relax with a good book on a comfortable lounge chair and bask in the sunlight or sit under the umbrella.

The kitchen is fully stocked and overlooks the beach (there is no better way to cook!)

There is an outdoor fire ring where you can enjoy the clear view of the stars and the city lights of Ensenada in the distance.

La Bufadora is a 5 mile drive down the road where you can enjoy beautiful views, shopping and fabulous food. Ensenada is a 20 minute drive north where you can enjoy more fabulous food, shopping, and a visit to the fish market.

About Cathy Norton

This is a property owned by our whole big family: Mom and Dad, their three children and their spouses. We are from Orange County and our kids have enjoyed growing up going to PdB.

Cathy Norton purchased this house in 2004

Why Cathy Norton chose Lengüeta Arenosa

Before we had ever been to Palacio de Baja, Mom was the informal 'rental agent' for the original builder of the property. As payment for handling the rentals she was given time at the house. Gradually we all traveled to Baja and fell in love with the quiet, slow pace of life in Mexico and on the beach.

When the owner was no longer able to care for the property we decided that we would like the opportunity to buy it. After praying together for a time and talking to the owner, we were able to purchase the property in 2004.

We feel very blessed to have PdB for our family to enjoy together. We hope you enjoy it too.

We love going down to PdB. We noticed that we like to spend the first few days sleeping in, taking a nap, laying out, or just lying on the beach. It's a great place to detox from everyday life.

There's nothing like waking up, making a pot of coffee, and sitting outside or walking along the beach while drinking said coffee.

What makes this house unique

The beach is almost private. Rarely is it noisy or congested.

Great beach location and a spacious beach house

  • 4 of 5

We rented for 3 nights over New Year's. There were only 3 of us - my wife and I and our adult daughter. Plenty of room inside and out; comfortable beds, huge kitchen/dining areas. TV and internet worked fine. Well stocked with kitchen utensils and dishes, glasses, etc. Also plenty of spices, cooking oils, paper towels, cleaning supplies, etc. Literally right on the beach as the photo implies. There was also a nice fire pit right out front of the beach house and we bought a few bundles of firewood nearby and enjoyed the fire one evening as we listened to the surf.

The owner's pre-trip e-mailed driving instructions (on how to drive down from the border and find the place), and her general info/insights into the place and surrounding area were extremely helpful. She was also very prompt at providing any follow-up to our e-mail questions ahead of time. Obviously a caring owner.

A nice quiet safe place.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for the weekend. It was a really nice area we also took a walk at night on the streets and it was a little dark but the people there are really friendly.

Kids enjoyed the beach the waves were really quiet so it was not scary for the little kids. Our Family also enjoyed digging Holes to get the hot water out which is about 1 mile away from the house.

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Natural hot springs on the beach
Car: necessary

La Bufadora is 5 miles south. Buy some churros and some fish tacos. They are delicious! There is also a lot of shopping and good deals to be found.

We like to stop at the fish market in Ensenada on the way down and pick up fresh fish to cook on the barbecue. Charcoal barbecue is provided.
