Interaction with guests

My mother lives in the main house. She will be happy to hand you the keys and answer any requests you may have. Her English is limited, but I am always available if you have a request she cannot understand.

The neighbourhood

A relaxed, family-oriented community, just a few blocks away from the UABC university, renowned for the Major in Ocean Sciences.

No cars running by since this is a low traffic community with access through one single street.

As an upscale suburban style community you will find dogs in the neighborhood that you won't see strolling around but may hear sometimes.

Convenient supermarket 5 minutes away.

Getting around

The apartment is a beauty in prime condition located on the northwest end of Ensenada.

Walking distance from the Quintas Papagayo beach (11 minutes), where you can enjoy sea lions and dolphin watching. Finding this beach is not a very intuitive task, I recommend that you ask Dora how to get there.

Located 15 minutes driving distance from Playa Hermosa (Ensenada's Sandy Beach).

Casa Dora is about 2 miles (7 minutes by car) from the Hussong's cantina which can be the heart of downtown.

Convenient location if you are looking forward to spend some time in the boasting Valle de Guadalupe Wine region which is 25 minutes North West of Casa Dora (Highly recommended for wine lovers).

Very convenient access to Mexico's Coastal Highway 1, which is the continuation of California Highway 1 south of the border.

Other things to note

Located in a cul de sac in an upscale safe neighborhood. The house has a gated entrance, which you will be provided keys for.

Street parking is convenient and always available.

My mom offers to prepare Room Service breakfast for our guests, at a very convenient price. We can charge you via Airbnb system.

Such a good value! Stayed here during a visit to Valle de Guadalupe. Was about 20 minutes from our last stop, CuatroCuatros and 10 minutes from a great breakfast spot in the morning. If you wake up earlier than we did, there are great room service options for breakfast, love that! Great communication with host, who went above and beyond to accommodate for us, very friendly. The place itself was great for 1-3 people, very quaint and clean- smelled like freshly laundered sheets. Gracias! Would stay here again on my next visit!

Mrs. Dora was so sweet! She was there to hand us the keys and show us where everything was at. The place was super cute and very clean! It had all the essentials that could ever be needed. We had a great time. My husband and I definitely plan to stay at this location again.

Live more, experience more, love more and have gratitude along the way. Guest of the world and international host - hosting gives a lot!. I would love to point the way to the best Ensenada has to offer!

I have great memories growing up in Ensenada and Mexico City - then moved to Barcelona for a decade and now in California- My life is rich thanks to all I have learned moving this much.
