About Betty Donellan
American owned. Enjoy our house. May consider lease option or selling as we live too far away now to enjoy. Once there, you will never want to leave. There is so much to do and enjoy in the desert from off roading to swimming and fishing for dorado and corvina. We have many years of enjoyment at this home and hope you enjoy your stay as well.

Enjoyed the location and the views
We had a wonderful time in San Felipe. The location of this beach house is fantastic, although we did experience some minor theft of items left unattended on the beach. Very private beach with lots to explore for the kids. The beach was rockier than we anticipated, but it was fun to collect interesting rocks and sea glass.
The views were wonderful from the porch. But we worried about our three-year-old whenever he got near the edge, since there are large gaps between the pillars that would allow for quite a dangerous fall if he got through them. We hoped to find a place to hang a hammock, but couldn't find one.
Weather was a bit too warm to really use the lower bedroom as we anticipated. A/C worked well upstairs though. At night, it was great to open the windows and listen to the ocean. The moon rise over the ocean was beautiful, along with the gentle pulse of the lighthouse. This is a great place to enjoy the sunrise too.
We needed a plunger to keep the toilets in working order. The water pressure was problematic most of the time. Barely a dribble out of some of the shower fixtures depending on the time of day. We also discovered that there is a slow leak in the hot water line somewhere in the wall of the master bathroom. It seeps through at the ground level and causes puddling in the hall and in the master bathroom. So we had to turn off the hot water main unless we were using it. We reported this problem and believe it is being addressed. We also suggested that the owner spray for bugs and repair some of the deteriorated window screens. She seems very attentive to deferred maintenance issues like this that come to her attention.
The local caretaker was very attentive and helpful throughout the week with whatever we needed. Overall, we had a nice week and enjoyed our stay.
Great place, but needs maintenance
Giving 4 stars even though most would give less, but we didn't call the owner to report any issues so don't want to be too harsh. Our cells phones don't work in Mexico and the neighbor told us the issues had already been reported, two primary reasons we didn't complain.
AC doesn't work in master bedroom which makes it and the master bath unusable in summer.
Shower in master bath didn't work at all, you got a tiny stream of water for a minute then nothing at all.
No AC at all in downstairs room. If you need 3 bedrooms, don't stay here in summer.
No propane when we arrived so we couldn't use the stove. Not having to eat out everyday was one thing we looked forward to. The neighbor was nice enough to give us a small tank of propane to use, so that was just a one day issue. There was a sticky note on the fridge with a phone number for the gas company, not sure if we were expected to call that or what -- we had no working phone, so wouldn't have mattered.
With the AC situation we basically had one bedroom and one bathroom which would have been horrible for most large groups. We are a small family so we made do, 3 slept in the kitchen and 2 in the small bedroom with AC.
The house is beautiful (amazing by San Felipe standards) and million dollar views are worth it, especially if the owner makes some repairs.
Again, we didn't call to report any problems, but really if you are renting a short term vacation rental you should have these things checked before your guests arrive because not having AC and showers for one or two days for a short term rental can make a real difference.
The place was clean, and the neighbor was friendly and cleaned up the broken glass that was all over the kitchen when we arrived. A storm had blown the patio shade in to the kitchen window before we arrived, the broken window probably didn't help the cooling situation.
I'd recommend this place to a small group of people that can make do with one or two rooms... or maybe try again in the cooler months when AC is not required.
Lastly, if your car has less clearance than a Toyota Corolla, good luck getting in the parking lot, my car scraped on the steep entrance even at various angles. You could park in the street though, lots of room, at least in August.
Wow, Erik. This is the first I am hearing of this. I was totally unaware that the a/c is not working and for propane, the manager is suppose to take care of having the tank filled. The question regarding the shower in the master bathroom would be a question of whether the showerhead was opened or clogged. I will have it checked since you obviously had water elsewhere. I am totally shocked to hear about the window that I also didn't know anything about.
We have a Toyota Tundra 4 door double car and have no problem driving it into the community. I am not sure why you had a problem.
The house is advertised with no a/c downstairs and the windows can be opened to allow the sea breeze from both sides to flow through. August is definitely the hottest month to be in San Felipe but many places only have fans and no a/c and even more only have solar.
I only wish I had known about these maintenance issues prior or during your stay so I could have attended to them immediately.
Thanks for letting me know.
Ready to step it up a notch in Mexico? This place is for you!
Holy cow did we have fun! A welcome turn from camping in a Palapa and weaving from bar to bar in town. We spent hours each day on the giant patio overlooking the Sea of Cortez, watching the tide go in and out. A great and secure location, mere blocks from town. A garage for storing our motorcycle and lots of space inside to hang and relax and cook and chat. I will be staying here again for sure. I have to. I left my floaties in the garage for next time =)
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The beach is walking distance and so was the town.
Great vacation house! I loved everything this house had to offer and I wish we could've stayed longer. I was pleased with the location because we had access to everything. The weather was great and the place was clean. My kids were bummed the tv didn't work but after a day it didn't matter. We had the opportunity to spend real quality time with each other. Thank you Betty for sharing your beautiful home with us,
Thank you, Ana. I am so happy you were able to enjoy our fabulous home with wonderful views and proximity to the town. We welcome you back anytime!!
Great property, location and cleanliness, but have a mixed review.
I would love to rate this place a "5", the location was fantastic, the property was very clean and exactly the type of home when you want to rent a home in Mexico. There were no sheets on the beds, none to be found anywhere in the property, and to ask to bring additional toilet paper and towels etc, those are things that should be provided at this price, it's a vacation rental. The property is great, the views can't be better, you can walk to all of town, just a short 3 block, but it is a vacation rental, have everything a hotel has, period, no excuse. Make sure the property has these items and it's all worth it and we would happily go back if it did.
I pay to have my property manager have the house cleaned with clean towels and sheets on the bed. You never said anything about this until now yet you were there and in touch with them and they live two doors down. You are told to bring your own beach towels as this is a house not 5 star hotel that provides them. You do not pay 5 star hotel rates, though there are no 5 star hotels in San Felipe.Toilet paper, shampoo, dishwasher liquid and soap are provided. You brought 6 guys so it seems one of you could have asked to have the beds made. There are enough sheets there. If you arrived early, they may have been washing them from the prior guests who left. That is why check in is later but I believe some in your group came in quite early.. I am quite surprised to hear but since I pay for this service and heard no complaints until now, I wouldn't know there was anything wrong. I assure you no one has had that problem before or arriving after you.. I wouldn't expect that to be the case again.
Great place to stay in San Felipe!
Thank you for letting us stay at your place.
It couldn't be in a better location in San Felipe. Close to shops and restaurants
and right on the beach. The house was very clean, great A/C and very nicely decorated.
We'll be back again
So glad you enjoyed it. Yes, we look forward to your staying at our beach house again.
Perfect location to stay while enjoying any of San Felipe's many festivals and events, such as the Baja 250, wine festival, tequila festival, shrimp festival, jazz festival, blues festival-San Felipe is ready for any opportunity to host an event.
