    Great ocean views, the property was worn and needs TLC, WiFi did not work, no soap or Kleenex in the bathrooms. Great deck, needs chairs and table to make a better living space. Construction on ground level made parking restrictive.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The only thing that I liked about this property was the view, easy access to the beach and gated security. What I did not like was the check in was not as expected, there is a receptionist desk and no one is there, the building is lonely. I called the Manager of the unit he did not answer left message and he never returned call. Tower 1 building shows sign of getting old, the elevator to the 5th floor got stuck while trying to go up to the 5th floor. We were stuck for about 15mins, pressed the emergency button no response, My husband had to force and open the door. We went to notify security and all he said was to use the other elevator, well I preferred the stairs. The unit security lock on the door knob to press in the code, some of the numbers are missing making it hard to view to press the numbers. The balcony next to the master bedroom the edge stucco is loose and dangerous if a heavy body leans the weight there is a chance it might break, very dangerous. Jacuzzi water is not warm, water is cold no heater.

    Relaxing Weekend Away

    Our weekend stay at this condo in Calafia was just what we needed to refresh and renew! The home is well appointed and decorated nicely. The views out to the ocean and sunset were beautiful. The beds were very comfortable. The community is safe and secure. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Views even better than photos!

    Photos cannot do justice to the glorious views! You not only see the 180-degree ocean view, you hear it, feel it, and smell it! Bob's home offers more than just a view. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable. The complex is quiet and secure. One surprising and delightful sight was a female boar grazing on the lush grounds. She even wandered down to the beach and foraged there. :) Although we would have been content staying at the condo, we decided to venture out and drive to Puerto Nuevo, where we enjoyed a fabulous dinner at La Casa de la Langosta. Our meal was outstanding, and the staff there were exceptionally hospitable. During our stay, we joined a friend, who lives in the area, at her favorite Italian restaurant in Rosarito, Betucinni's. We also ordered take-out from her favorite Mexican eatery, El Zarape de Rosarito. I recommend both of them. The 90-minute drive to the condo, from our home in Carlsbad, CA, was easy and enjoyable. The toll roads are well maintained and scenic. The return trip went smoothly until we arrived in Tijuana, a few blocks from the border, where we were involved in a collision. All four passengers in our car believe the collision was deliberate on the part of the other (local) driver. Make sure you purchase Mexican automobile insurance and review whom to call and what to do in the event of an accident. We were unsuccessful reaching a representative during our three-hour debacle; however, had we neglected to purchase Mexican insurance, the situation could have been much worse. Be cautious and prepared and stay calm. Enjoy your trip. Bob's vacation home is the place to stay.

    Short stay on the coast

    Rosarito is much bigger than the last time we were here! If you will stay in the area, do yourself a favor and go a little further south and stay at Bob's place at Calafia. Nice condo in a good spot. Only here two nights, very comfortable and relaxing. Charlie's down the road for a great lunch. Highly recommend.

    Breath taking view and good communication makes up for the other inconsistencies!

    The property owner Bob was very attentive to our issues, extending our stay was easy. The view was truly breathtaking, the condo had all things indicated in the description. We would love to rent this property again! See you in November!!

    Great place

    This property was beautiful. The ocean views were not exaggerated, simply beautiful . Only issue was we could not figure out how to turn on the shower in the main bathroom, luckily there was another bathroom. We would absolutely stay here again.

    Views Great but the condo coming short of expectations

    Let me just say that Bob was helpful and quite responsive. The place had amazing views however it came short of delivering on the expectations...and here is why: (1) the place states that both bedrooms have views and are professionally decorated which is wrong. Master bedroom should have views but the windows were so dirty you couldn’t enjoy them and the other bedrooms has no windows (per say) and only a glass opening into the living room which has views; (2) the place was supposedly professionally decorated and was featured at some point in Bajas Distinctive home magazine...well, maybe and it does look deceivingly good on a surface but literally almost everything is falling apart (right side of arm chair rail, chester drawers in the master bathroom , holes in lamp shades, cigarette burns in dining table chairs, toilet seat cover non existent in the master bedroom, falling apart coffee table, loose screws on toilet paper holders, dirty and moldy caulking in the bathrooms or patio rail loose 🙄 ); (3) The patio sliding doors are not sliding and require heavy force of muscles, they need lubrication and a bit of maintenance; (4) there are no screens anywhere or AC so in the summer you have to leave the patio sliding doors open inviting mosquitoes and we got few bad bites; (5) the BBQ is an absolute disaster and you will have no desire to use it; (6) the bread toaster was toasting only one side of the bread because it is broken and as I was pulling the toast I got electrocuted because of disjointed coils inside of it; (7) the pool is inviting but unfortunately there are absolutely no pool chairs around it so we didn’t use it; (8) the check in instructions, aside from having an auto code to enter the condo, also suggested there was to be a key available in a lock box that we didn’t find. This caused us to raise an issue with Bob and telling him that we don’t feel good about the fact that someone else has the key we should have...he eventually fixed it by making sure the cleaners gave it back....I could probably add few other disappointing items but I think this is enough.Bob needs to take action and make the place as advertised as it is tired. The views are still great and that helped with our stay. Additionally, we were unlucky with the neighbors who were also renting and partying on the weekend we were there to rest 😏. Thats said...I think the value for the price was missing and I will not be coming back.

    Perfect, easy getaway spot for our little family!!!

    This place was the perfect spot for a three-day trip to Rosarito. It was our first time visiting so we didn't quite know what to expect and staying here made things so simple. The place was very clean, stocked with what we needed, but the most incredible thing about this place is the VIEW!!! There's nothing like waking up to that every day! The patio doors are heavy and a little tricky to slide open which was PERFECT for us as we were traveling with two toddlers. Gave us great peace of mind and we were able to relax knowing they were always safe. We were able to check everything off our to-do list and everything was a very short drive from the residence. There was ample security, nice, clean pool, easy and private beach access, grocery stores and pharmacies close by and Bob's restaurant and entertainment recommendations were great! We would gladly stay here again.
