The Baja Beach Lodge is a 5 bedroom 4 BR large hacienda sits directly on the HUGE WHITE SANDY BEACHFRONT in La Salina Baja Mexico, halfway between Rosarito Beach and Ensenada: safe, secure, private, w/ 15 beds, can accommodate large groups!

Le logement

The Beach Lodge is located immediately off the Tijuana/Ensenada toll road @ KM 73, in the coastal community of La Salina Del Mar, next to Puerto La Salina. The Lodge has been professionally managed as a vacation destination since 2004, having served hundreds of guests over the years. It has also hosted large functions such as golf tournaments, ultralight fly-ins, whale watching tours, Baja race teams; weddings, birthday bashes, bachelor/bachelorette parties, etc. It also serves groups of 8 or less.

The spacious 4000 s.ft “hacienda style” 5 BR 4 bath complex sits right on the white sand of La Salina Beach. The Lodge is a little “rustic” given is vintage, but clean,comfortable, and well designed for larger functions. All guestrooms were rehabbed in 2014/15.

The Lodge features a gigantic beachfront porch sits @ 40 feet above the sand allowing for breathtaking unobstructed ocean/beach views 24/7/365. This elevated plateau features plenty of lounging/seating area providing hours of relaxing views of ocean breakers; or to observe leaping pods of dolphins, seals, seabirds, and during 6 mos of the year, the semi-annual migration of the whales.

The porch also features a regulation size shuffleboard court; giant brick fire-pit with seating for 10; 3 charcoal BBQ s; chaise lounges, chairs, picnic tables and hummingbird feeders that oftentimes fill the air with dozens of “hummers” during sunset feeding time!

At the end of the porch is a manicured stone staircase 20 steps down to the beach. Approximately 10 steps down is a 2000 s.ft. Astro-turf terrace for extra recreational fun (badminton, croquet, volleyball, soccer,) or just another common area for socializing. It also serves as a Landing Zone (LZ) for paragliders who oftentimes visit the venue to fly the international renown La Salina Flying ridge ½ mile east of the Lodge. Guest can also arrange to have local horsemen bring horses up to the terrace and ride a mount out to the ocean and down the 2 mile long beach!

During the evenings or inclement weather guests may choose to relax in the large beachfront 1000 s.ft. Grand-room immediately behind the porch. The GR features a large seating area, with 4 massive beach view windows looking across the large beachfront porch. The GR has a large wood fireplace, and professionally installed AV center featuring 60 inch HDTV w/ satellite service; large sound system that plays both inside and outside. WIFI is easily accessed throughout the complex.

Unlike other local rentals, 10+ guests can comfortably lounge in the GR and watch the ocean break on the sandy coastline, or watch whales, dolphins, seals and seabirds frolic in the sea! Or enjoy the AV entertainment center.

Combined with the GR space is the large kitchen features a large fridge for guest usage; 2 microwaves, convection oven, stove, coffee maker, blender etc.

When The Lodge is NOT booked exclusively as a private vacation rental, it is operated as a Bed and Breakfast (the Baja Beachfront Bed and Breakfast). Accordingly the 5 guest bedrooms are individually themed: the Moondoggie Master (Gidget/ and Moondoggie theme from 1950's surfer classic film); The “Flipper Flat” dolphin/whale and ocean themed room; The Surfer Sweeeet, featuring Baja surfer scenes and decor; Pilots Peek themed in paragliding, hang-gliding and ultralight regalia; and Frenchy's Quarters named after the original owner featuring a bunkhouse in mid-evil theme.

The first three guest rooms feature adjoining private bathrooms, and there is a common bathroom for the latter two.

Why stay in a cookie-cutter pastey white gringo style condo, crammed into a complex of others who can monitor your activities, or ruin your vacation with their wants/needs? The LODGE is far more private, spacious, and fun!

Accès des voyageurs

As explained before the house is “hacienda style” meaning most of the guestrooms privately enter from the common courtyard located in the center of the complex. The courtyard is semi-enclosed with an atrium with a regulation slate-bed pool table for guest use and enjoyment. There is a small spiral staircase leading to the roof of the atrium which is another common area for watching the ocean or hanging a bit away from the rest of the crowd.
Lodge guest obviously will enjoy La Salina Beach. La Salina beach is probably the largest, white sandy beach between Rosarito and Ensenada. Its generally a peaceful beach unlike the “resort” areas of TJ, Rosarito, La Mision or Ensenada. Many times there is no one on the beach, except of course during holidays and summer break. But even then its not the crazy, crowded drunken beach scenarios so familiar in Southern CA, and other Baja venues.
The ocean has several jetties just south of the Lodge, enjoyed by surfers, boogie boarders, kite boarders and body surfers. It is important to note, however, that there are strong rip currents that can be dangerous. There are no lifeguards on the beach, so children and beginner swimmers should not venture in above their knees without flotation devices.

Because the property is oftentimes ran as a Bed and Breakfast, certain closets, cabinets and even a fridge are locked off and unavailable. They are generally marked accordingly.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

BajaBrent is generally in the neighborhood for most guest arrivals/departures. Since he lives in La Salina fulltime, he can help guest check-in, orient, and advise about the premises and the general area.

He is also the concessionaire for ultralight flying activities at the La Salina flying ridge on behalf of the Ejido La Mision. If you've ever dreamt of flying, he might be able to hook you up!

Having lived in the area for 20 years, Brent is a great wealth of information about where to shop, dine, party, fly, fish, surf, kayak, hike, rock-climb, karaoke, or he even can escort you to Valle Guadalupe, Mexico's largest wine country, 45 minutes inland, considered the world's "next Napa"!

Autres remarques

Baja has taken a media bashing by the USA beginning in 2007. Tourism fell through the floor for several years after. It was unjust.

A lot of criticism focused on a few unfortunate incidents as well as the drug war. However, the danger to tourist was almost zero!

The vast portion of Baja is completely safe, and has never been dangerous to tourist. You will find La Salina, a safe, secure, and enjoyable venue to enjoy your vacation!

Additionally, I generally will NOT book a Saturday checkin/out. I have far too many guests who wish to book weekends, and by allowing the same, forecloses the opportunity to book a weekend warrior. During summer and whenever a holiday falls on a weekday before/after the weekend, I require a minimum 3 night booking. JULY 4TH week (before and/or after) WILL REQUIRE A MINIMUM 5 NIGHT BOOKING! I will decline anything less.

Children under 2 are generally free, but pls disclose them anyway. If over 2 they count as "guests" for fee calculation. In some cases this may be negotiable, feel free to ask.

I also list elsewhere, and although I update calendar here, there is a chance that another booking hasn't made it to the Air BnB calendar, but I do my best, to update daily.

House Guidelines are on site and too lengthy to incorporate here...for brevity here are the highpoints:

1) no smoking inside;
2) no firework deployment;
3) do not flush any paper down toilets;
4) loud music must cease by 9PM weeknights and 10:00PM on weekends;

7) Pets are OK IF pre-arranged and a) housebroken; b) pottied off premises; c) non barkers; d) non-biters; e) friendly; f) not permitted on beds or on furniture; g) subject to additional charge.

9) undisclosed guest (e.g. booking for 8 and 15 show up) constitutes a breach of contract and subjects security deposit to forfeiture--pls book properly.

I apologize at the tone of some of these directives that are incorporated in the hardcopy at the house. However, having served 6000+ guests over 18 years, there are always a few who take advantage of situations. 99% of the time this is never an issue, but its always the 1% who can spoil things.

The intention is for you and your group to come and enjoy this big beautiful house, cheers BB

Great place. Brent likes to know who comes in and out of his place. But everything flows better after the check in; Brent let's you do your thing. Quick to answer questions about the place also.

I had a great time, the house just needed to air out, it was very musty smelling.
Profil utilisateur de Brent
Réponse de Brent :
Thanks for coming Justin, and I appreciate your review. However, any third party reading this might find the "odor" comment a big deal as you really do not comment about the rest. For the benefit of the rest of the readership, here is what Justin's private response stated: "We had a great time. The bedding & sheets were clean, the bathrooms were all very clean. The kitchen had everything we needed. The outside view was amazing. We loved sitting on the lounge chairs soaking in the sun & enjoying the view. The beach was all too our selves. The water & sand on the beach was beautiful. Thank you Brent for your help & great communication. Diane was really nice." Justin then left a "5 star" feedback on all the standard categories. Yes there can be some "odors" at the beach, especially when it is really hot/muggie as it can be in August. But from Justin's own comments, they were outdoor most of the time, and the problem was easily remedied by opening doors and windows. YEP that how ya do it! cheers BB

I've rented a few places between Rosarito and Ensenada over the past year or so and Brent's place is a standout. He can honestly be a little terse at first and some of the requirements seem a little excessive (car, color, make, model, names, genders, age) for entry, but it's because it's the most secure gated community I've been in in Baja and he keeps the place in tip top shape. He's extremely responsive and plenty accommodating and I would definitely stay with him again. The place itself is right on a sandy beach with a great patio and every amenity, fully stocked kitchen, sound system, etc. etc. The waves out back are pretty good (bring a longboard, or something with some volume) and enough so you don't feel too lazy about not hitting a great break like K38. Also on the beach, you can rent 4 wheelers/other vehicles and go horseback riding for extremely cheap. Locally there's not much to walk to, which was a bit of a bummer for a group that loved Primo Tapia or Popotla and all the taco stands and restaurants day and night. However, the cantina is nice and the service is great, plus a taco stand that begins serving at 9pm. Also a small market that sells beer over at the marina and a close by OXXO with basics. Overall, the place is terrific for groups of friends, couples and families and you'd be hard pressed to find a spot like this on a sandy beach. I highly recommend Bajabrent's place and would definitely stay again.

As a first-timer to Ensenada (and Mexico), Brent's place was the perfect place for my friends and I to stay. There were only 6 of us but the house could have comfortably hosted double. We didn't get the chance to meet Brent, but Flipper was incredibly helpful with recommendations and tips for the area. The cantina is just next door, and there are other restaurants within 10 - 20 minutes of the house - all delicious. Lots of pots/pans/cooking utensils to make a huge meal too. Beds were comfortable and sheets and towels were extremely clean. Flipper was able to set up horseback riding for us on the beach once we got there, and we checked out the ATV course about 20 minutes north of the house - so much fun. Thank you for an incredible stay.

I am a professional vacation rental host of 20+ years. I have facilitated over 9000 guests over the years, and enjoy the positive experience of providing beach rentals to vacationers. I specialize in Baja CA Mexico Gold Coast (between Tijuana and Ensenada; and north county San Diego. My main house --the Baja Beach Lodge-- is sometimes ran as a real Bed and Breakfast when not booked exclusively thru services such as this Thus the home is kept in excellent condition as opposed to someone's 2nd home which is generally an after thought. Here in La Salina, I am the concessionaire for Ejido La Mision ( a family coop of property owner of 15,000 acres). My concession is for paragliding, hang gliding, and other ultralight sports conducted from the La Salina flying ridge 1 mile east of the Beach Lodge. A lot of my guests come to fly this world renown flying site. We also fly some powered ultralights from the beach, and some pilots will take guests FLYING! I am a retired trial lawyer, and enjoy the peace, tranquility, and recreational aspects of living on the beach in Mexico. As the picture depicts, I am also an avid karaoke singer...Won some comps in the past, but that's a story for another day! Altogether I own, operate, manage, @ 6 properties on both sides of the border. San Diego is America's finest city, and Baja is the best Mexican venue one can reside. Come visit. I will do my best to please.
