Long Beach, CA

Just an AMAZING view and place! Highly recommend for vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is fantastic with all the amenities of a home and the views are to die for. Pools are sparkling clear and game room was fun to play some ping pong and hang out. Beach access is not far away and the walk is beautiful. We took a taxi to Papas & Beer, about 10 minutes away to party and eat some delicious tacos! Thank you for working with us to make our birthday celebration one to remember. Will definitely rent again!

Great view

  • 3 of 5

We had a very relaxing time here. The location and view were incredible, waves crashing off the cliff below us. The beach was lovely and we enjoyed the tennis court, pool table and ping pong. The unit itself was clean. The dryer vented inside which we felt was a health issue. We were told not to use the fireplace upon arrival, which was a disappointment. We would have preferred knowing ahead of time about that. The kitchen was pretty (nice countertops). The DVD player and CD player both skipped and froze. The tv had two channels in English that worked.

Calafia is nice, safe and the grounds are well taken care of. The fitness room is super. The pools are freezing cold! No heat! There was only one hot tub working during our stay, up on the second floor of tower two, but it was so hot and had a great view! The steam room and sauna on that same floor are awesome, lovely and clean.

The property manager gave us some great recommendations for dinner. We had an amazing lobster feast on Christmas Eve in Puerto Nuevo. We recommend Casa de Pescadors, right on the water. Yaqui Taco in Rosarito is a classic taco stand....all locals. We loved it.

We found the directions from the host to be very confusing on the way down, and we were totally lost on the way back to the US. We recommend you do your research and be sure you know how to get thru the border crossing. Avoid the SENTRI lane. It could cost you a very large fine if you do not have the right documentation.

All in all a very enjoyable vacation for our family of four. Our teenage and 21 year old sons enjoyed the amenities, and we would go back to Calafia.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed the fabulous view and overall had an excellent stay! In regards to some of your concerns…the dryer does vent inside; however it is a totally safe solution that is offered by Home Depot in the US. In regards to the fireplace, most of the fireplaces in Mexico are not vented well enough to support large wood fires, hence my property manager’s concern in using the fireplace. The fireplace is very usable; however for gas fires, Duraflame logs or small log fires. This distinction should have been explained and I apologize for any confusion. The DVD player was checked and we could not find any skipping; however a backup unit has been provided to my property manager should there be any other problems with it. In regards to the hot tubs, there are about 8 hot tubs in the complex and they are not kept heated all of the time because it is too expensive and there is simply not enough use to justify the cost to the complex. They typically keep at least one hot tub hot and with most of the rest, you need to turn the heat on and wait for it to heat up prior to using. Hope that helps. All in all, glad that you had a good time and would like to return.

Diane was great and easy to work with. She made things easy and even brought us a new propane tank for the grill. The villa was beautiful and the views were to die for. Will definitely be going back soon! All around great experience. She is an A++ home owner.
