This was a cute little house in an unbelievably scenic area of northern Baja. It's a bit of a drive to Ensenada (the major town nearby), but this is a great place to stay if you love vistas. Lots of local mountain and beach hiking, and there are great tourist areas of curios and tamales and such within 10 minutes. The casita is in an area that's under development, so be prepared for a bit of nearby house construction. All in all, a great vacation.

Mountain Top Oasis

  • 4 of 5

Wanting to make sure we had a nice place to stay on our first leg through the Baja. We were so glad to have seen the beautiful country along the way and arrive well before sunset for our 2 night stay. The Villa is absolutely beautiful. The view was just amazing. Loved watching the fishing boats checking their tuna nets. Found it interesting that there were tuna farms there. It is a great place to land for peace and quiet and reflect on the next leg of your journey.

Beautiful Mountaintop Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Janika's place was perfect for our dear friends who were married in Ensenada to spend their first couple of nights together. The decor is very rustic and artistic with the sweet Mexican flavor. The views are unbelievable! Janika was a very gracious and accommodating host. We would definitely recommend it to all...

Great place for a quiet stay in the Punta Banda area, close to La Buf and Cantu for dining and shopping, great views of Ensenada bay and cruise ships,casita is clean and nicely furnished with everything needed to relax and enjoy, recommend stopping at Calimax for groceries and beverages before you get to the casita, it is on a short dirt road but easy to find, highly recommend

We booked this place somewhat last minute for the Baja 500. We were initially bummed before we left because of how far away it was from the rest of the festivities but once we arrived to the house we were blown away by how nice it was and how beautiful the area is. Since we didn't make it to some of the festivities for the race we checked out the little town at the end of the road which turned out to be a blast. 5 white kids in la Bufadora attracted a lot of attention from the local shop owners and food stands. We had plenty of $3 pina coladas and had dinner at Gordos right there. Be aware if they ask you to take a rattlesnake shot!!! The place overall was great! We defiantly had a great time and will be back!
