About the property

Roomy, 2 bedroom/2 bath beach house - nothing between you and the waves but sand

This is a lovely, roomy home steps from the white sand beach. Escape your busy world and trade it in for the sound of the waves. 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, completely updated home can sleep up to 8 comfortably. The open floor plan creates room for everyone and when you open the large sliding door adjacent to the dining room, you bring the outside in.

Our home is about 15 minutes away from Puerto Nuevo (famous lobster village), 30 minutes away from Rosarito and approximately 60 minutes away from the International border. The ocean views are absolutely breath taking and you will enjoy them without interruption from your large, private patio. Enjoy watching the marine wildlife, horseback riding and a beautiful white sandy Beach during your stay. The back yard has a Palapa for shade and the patio offers extra entertaining space and comfort. We rent daily, weekly, and monthly; you can also enjoy peace of mind with 24 hour gated security. Equidistant between Rosarito and Ensenada, there is plenty to see, do and eat if/when you can drag yourself away from the view and sound of the waves.

La Salina is adjacent to Puerto La Salina (the first marina south of the border). 24 hour manned security access provides an added element of safety. This quiet, established neighborhood is a magical place, come see what sheer joy Mexico can bring to your life and become one of many who share the happiness of being in one of the best places away from home.

Long term rental rates are discounted for those interested in settling in, for stays longer than 30 days, weekly housekeeping is included.

About Vicki DiMatteo

I live in Boise with my husband, 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 Misión

I was born in southern California and have many fond memories of vacationing in Baja and enjoying the great lifestyle. 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can I say? My experience with My Family was amazing! Vicki's home was lovely with a amazing view at the beach, it was a very roomy place, definitely coming back!

Excellent choice near Puerto La Salina!

  • 5 of 5

What a find this house is! Can’t wait to stay again. I’m very familiar with the area and this home has the best location on a beautiful, sandy, uncrowded beach. There is also a fun Cantina a short but safe walk away, Puerto Nuevo is 15 minutes away, and the beautiful Valle de Guadalupe is no more than 30 minutes away. The home is clean, well appointed, the beds are comfortable, the ceiling fans all worked, the patio is awesome, we used the Weber grill one night to cook dinner. The ocean view and sound of waves can’t be beat. Don’t miss out on this awesome value.

Fully stocked, great home for a large family

  • 5 of 5

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.

Location, location!

  • 4 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Bajamar also offers a lovely brunch for $15 US and/or a day pass to tennis, pool and putting green also for $15/day Call for more information (619) 425-0081.

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.
