About Vicki DiMatteo

I live in Boise with my 2 daughters, golden retriever and 2 cats. Travel is a passion, I love to explore and experience - living in Mexico is the best of all worlds, convenient (door to door 6 hours from Boise) and a great jumping off point to other travel (TIJ airport is 30 minutes away and generally 30% lower fares depending on destination).

Vicki DiMatteo purchased this House in 2015

Why Vicki DiMatteo chose La Salina

I was born in southern California and have many fond memories of vacationing in Baja and enjoying the great lifestyle. Then I grew up and away, life took over and only the photos remained. Then, recently, a group of friends were looking for a quick easy international trip - we landed in La Salina...I felt as though I had come home! 5 weeks after that vacation, I was the silly, happy owner of 9A! Its been a labor of love renovating it, nothing (except my family) can make my heart sing like thinking about my next trip south. Meanwhile, I am honored to share it with you.

What makes this House unique

Convenient to the US, safe, fun and some of the best food!! The profile photo was taken in Popotla, a short drive north to fresh from the sea lunch!

While there isn't air conditioning - the house has wonderful ceiling fans in every room to circulate the ocean breezes. There is a fire pit for a wonderful evening gathering (bring your own wood).

                                                                This home is perfect for a large family. All the amenities that you would expect and enjoy in your own home. Nice big open kitchen and dining room, very modern. Plenty of seating for everyone. Comfortable beds, lots of extra blankets and pillows for those on the futons. We enjoyed the games and movies in the evenings when the sun had gone down. One night we made s’mores in the fire pit and enjoyed the gorgeous sunset. Views can’t be beat. Loved having washer and dryer to use. The location is perfect...the beach is your backyard, and you are so close to so many little villages to explore and only half an hour from Ensenada. House is secure in a gated community with a nice big garage. We always felt very safe. We would definately stay here again if we were coming back to the area. Home owner was excellent to communicate with. Thank you so much.

                                                                My husband, our small dog and I spent the month of August, 2017 in this home on the beach in La Salina. Let me say that you cannot beat the location and the patio with palapa is a wonderful feature. We ate every meal out there, I painted my ceramics at that table while watching the ocean, and we read out there. If it wasn't for this outdoor space we might have cut our stay short as the house is small and dark inside, and I was disappointed that it was not cleaner. La Salina is a great community and has a wonderful beach. For short term rental this house is adequate, but for longer term, not so much. I gave the place 4 stars but that is because of the location and the patio.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Hi Junette,

                                                                Thank you for your feedback.

                                                                We have always received high marks for the cleanliness of our home and I know that she takes great pride in presenting a clean home, please feel free to contact me about the specifics of how we could improve.

                                                                The palapa and patio provide great indoor /outdoor living - I'm so happy you were able to enjoy both! All the wonderful space and shade the patio offers also protects the house from getting too hot in these warm summer months. Many of our previous renters have appreciated this feature.

                                                                Thank you again for your stay and comments and wish you success in your continued Baja travels.

                                                                Sincerely, Vicki

                                                                Great view, awesome location and great stay!

                                                                Cindy P.

                                                                The location of this property is on a great piece of beach! Awesome to wake to the scenery of the beach and the sound of the waves and the great weather! We had not been to this area in years and compared to the other places we ever stayed this home was incredible. Plenty of beds, sitting areas and the outside patio was where we hung out most. Even little things we forgot were not a problem since the house was well stocked with the basics.

                                                                We cannot believe we had the pleasure of staying in a property close to the water to be able to enjoy the view, the ease of having the beach at our convenience with privacy, no crowds and like I said location, location, location! We were close to Rosarito and Ensenada to go sightseeing and shopping.

                                                                We were a diverse group of ages and everyone enjoyed the place. Many compliments from everyone as to how nice of a place we stayed in.

                                                                We enjoyed dining and having a few beverages at Salina's Cantina and then went later for karaoke and street tacos. Also had a bonfire in the firepit and roasted marshmallows and made smores. I definitely cannot say how much time we would actually just sit and watch the scenery and enjoy the beach.

                                                                Vicki is a great hostess and helped immediately with any issues at hand.

                                                                We would definitely go to this property again. Thank you!

                                                                Thank you Cindy, you and your family were a joy to host, thank you for your great communication and please keep us in mind for future vacations!

                                                                Loved it! Omg!

                                                                This is the perfect house to relax in. Felt relaxed from the moment we walked through the door! I'd recommend this house to anyone and we plan on doing again...that is of course if they would have is again. ;-)

                                                                Hi Amber, of course you are welcome to come back!! It was a pleasure hosting you and your family!

                                                                Wonderful getaway!

                                                                Annie G.

                                                                We had an incredible trip to La Salina! Vicki's house is charming, comfortable and is in an unbeatable location! The beach is well-maintained and pretty secluded from the more populated areas. Everyone that we met was friendly and helpful. Vicki went out of her way to make sure all of our needs were met and we were set up for a wonderful trip! Can't wait to find time to escape again to my new favorite ocean-side oasis!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                A very beautiful and quite home on a beach with no one as far as the eye could see. Our time spent here was very relaxing with the perfect amount of fun. The reset button was a success. Vicki was very accommodating and easy to reach. I would definitely visit again. Thank you Vicki for sharing your home with us.

                                                                Go a mere 3 miles south (at the next exit) to find Bajamar's 3 courses which offer a uniquely spectacular golf experience. Often called "Pebble Beach South of the Border", Bajamar offers a scenic and memorable golfing experience to players of all skill levels and abilities (http://www.bajamar.com/golf.html). These courses each have something unique to offer the golfer.

There are Baja travel books to help your exploration of this amazing area. I would HIGHLY recommend the Vinicola (Wine Country), there are maps of the area in the bunk bed room - I would be happy to arrange a wonderful itinerary to give you an in depth look into some of the wineries.
