About this property

Best Surf in Northern Baja!

Located at the famous San Miguel Point, this American-built 2 bedroom house has spectacular views and is a one-minute walk away from one of the best breaks in Baja. In the morning, sip your coffee in the fully outfitted kitchen while you watch the guys in the line-up. Catch a couple of waves or just enjoy watching the surfers, then head into town to shop and have the world's best fish tacos. In the evening, enjoy a home-cooked dinner from the dining room while the sun sets over the Pacific and Todos Santos or, if cooking's not your thing, dine at one of the spectacular restaurants along the coast (or just grab some tacos down at El Sauzal). The house was built by the owner, an American contractor and exceeds American construction standards. It includes a water tank system with trucked-in fresh water, a washer and dryer, fiber optic internet to stream all your content, and a Chromecast. There are queen beds in both bedrooms, plus a full sofa bed in the living room. The one-car garage is available for your use, and there is a large driveway for two more cars. The house is located in a gate guarded community at the end of a cul de sac so it is peaceful and secure. Our caretaker lives five houses away to respond to any issues. The house is an easy drive from the U.S.; just cross the border, get on the toll road, and bypass Tijuana. There's a 7-11 style convenience store and a restaurant in the village that are two minutes away on foot. If you don't mind driving, there are two great taco stands and a couple of panaderias (bakeries) just south of the house at El Sauzal. Ensenada with all its fun is just a short drive away. And if you want excellent dining options, there are several between our house and Ensenada such as El Moro Hotel Restaurant and Sano's. For all the surfers out there, San Miguel is one of the most consistent rides this surfer has ever seen, and I lived in Hawaii for 10 years. You won't find a better value anywhere in Ensenada.

      3/5

        great casita

        this is a great little beach bungalow with all the services the only small Problem making tv work there is an ocean view from the living room

        4/5 Good

          Nice hub while siteseeing in Ensenada

          My wife and I came here to find something close to Ensenada in a gate community, not to mention San Miguel is well known surf spot. The house was fairly clean and had all the amenities you could need. You can see the ocean from the windows which was really nice for me. We walked through the neighborhood, which I think is perfectly safe. There's locals, families, and retired expats living in the neighborhood. The bared windows may intimidate some, but you'll notice that the newer places do not have them; I wonder if this was a concern of the past. The locals were friendly to us; just smile and wave. I will say that this was not exactly a great beach for laying out and not ideal for us if we had our boys. It's a mix of dirt coming up to rocks and on the weekends, there's a lot of folks that camp there (for a fee). Luckily, there's a lot of coastline in Baja. You can travel not to far north for long beaches. The house was very spacious and would be great for entertaining or having an entire family. The surf decor made me feel at home and the beds were both comfortable. While we were there, we did find love bugs (non threatening bugs, as the name suggests) had entered through a skylight window. Not a big deal for me - I took care of the issue. I would suggest double checking that the screen is flushly closed during your visit. I would definitely come back and bring the family with us in the future - maybe in the winter time when the swell breaks the way the locals I talked to described :) Over one minute rides into the cove - leg burners.

          4/5 Good
