On the coast of Baja California in northern Mexico lies the beautiful laid back beach town and vacation getaway of Rosarito. Rosarito offers the very best of an exotic tropical adventure, but lies only minutes away from the California border. It's sunny here all year long, and tall palm trees lean toward the ocean on endless strips of pristine golden sand. No matter what time of year you plan your visit here, you'll find plenty of exciting things to do. Instead of booking a cramped hotel room, stay in a luxury beach house or condo in Baja California.
Spend your mornings surfing, sailing, snorkeling, or relaxing in the sand with a good book. Then shake off the sand and explore the side streets and colorful markets of downtown Rosarito. In the afternoon, check out a Rosarito golf course or relax in a Rosarito spa. In the evening when the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean, head into town for world class dining, live music, and an energetic nightlife. When you are ready to hit the hay, head back to your vacation rental and fall asleep to the sound of ocean waves crashing on the shore.
Here are a few additional suggestions for your trip:
-Visit La Vid: This well-known wine tasting room and art gallery showcases paintings and sculptures by local artists as well as regional Mexican wines.
-Explore the Museum of Playas de Rosarito: This charming history museum displays a variety of artifacts focused on the Kumiai tribe.
-Visit the Foxsploration/ Titanic Expo: This combined theme park and movie studio features rides, a Titanic Exhibit, and an open air amphitheater.
-Play on the beach: Rosarito Beach is a popular destination for travelers and families.
-Rent a kayak: Rent a sea kayak or bring your own and explore the native plants and wildlife of this unique marine ecosystem.
-Take a deep sea fishing trip: Head for the deep waters off the shore in search of yellowtail and tarpaulin.
Every year, hundreds of visitors come to this area to experience Rosarito weddings, family reunions, honeymoons, and vacation getaways with friends. If you're among them, you'll have no troubling finding a perfect condo or beach house where you can relax in style and host dinner for your family and friends. While you're visiting Rosarito, be sure to schedule some time to explore nearby Baja destinations like Loreto and Todos Santos.

"The Best Value in Baja"
Left on 06/07/2015 for a stay in May 2015
We have been going to Las Gaviotas for over 15 years and have used all kinds of different homes. Some good, some horrible. We were not quite sure what to expect from our first time renting from Denny, but we were very happy once we saw the beautiful location, very nice clean house, beautiful patio and views.

Starting with the booking process, the entire vacation was effortless.

You get to park the car directly at the house. The unit is close to the guard gate, so I felt that we and our car were very safe. The unit is really laid back, just unpack and relax - but it does have everything you need to host a group. We brought some food and ate on the deck while watching the surf. Using Denny’s suggestions we were able to purchase beer and tortillas right up the road.
The house interior was immaculate, with stained glass windows and local art on all the walls. The beds have beautiful carved headboards that gives one the impression that they are sleeping inside a seashell – very cool. The bathroom sinks are even painted by local artists. This shows that the owner really cares. The showers were sparkling clean and the kitchen appliances (including the refrigerator) were spotless and all worked great. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped - but the real draw of this house is the deck and living room area, where a...
