“Geeat View, less than desireble accomodations”

Arrived at the location witouth great difficulty. The location is atop a mountain, with a beautifull view for the main portion of the home. It is a two level home. The rental part is the small upper level of the home, with a semi bay view(no oceanfront view). It is a single bedroom, with small living room area and a center dining table. The place was dusty and not well maintained. The showers handles were loose and not properly operational. The temperature dropped at night and we were cold, despite additional blankets. There were two old propane heaters, one (in the bedroom) which did not work, one in the living room, which after several attempts we managed to make functional. We would shut it off at night because of safety concers. We brought our thanksgiving dinner, but could not heat it because the stove oven did not work. We knocked at the owner's door and informed her about the oven, she seemed irritated at our request, but advise neverthenless, that she would send someone to repair it. The repair person never showed up. I doubt if the could have fix it, the appliances were too old.
We manage to get through the three nights. The owner informed us that she would have to charge us an extra $55 because we were five, instead of four(Grandma decided to tag along at the last minute) we were not happy with the extra fee, given the condition of the place, but had little choice, since we had given her $100 deposit. We managed to get through the three nights at a cost of over $600, and that was not mexican dollars. The beauty of the area, though, made up for the defficiencies of the place we stay at. We loved Ensenada and will definately return.

I try my best to make sure my casita is clean and everything operational. Had I known the oven didn't work, I would have had it fixed. I tried to get a repairman to come, but he wasn't available until after the guests checked out. I have replaced the range with a new one. There is a microwave oven the guests could have used to heat their meals.

Almost none of the homes in Mexico have central heat and we use propane heaters which are safe if they are attended, which is why I don't recommend running them at night. I have lots of extra blankets available.

Had I known this guest was going to bring 5, I would have declined their reservation. I'm only set up to sleep a couple and two extra people.

I have the unit professionally cleaned and have never had any complaints about cleanliness. I think this guest was unhappy because they were too crowded, and they also brought along two dogs. No wonder it was dusty.

This casita is located south of Ensenada near La Bufadora and sits on a mountain top. The views are outstanding 360 degrees. The casita is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment above the garage of the main house and very nicely decorated and equipped. Janika is very hospitable and helpful with information about the area and things to do, places to eat. We would definitely stay there again.

We loved waking up to the beautiful view and the morning fog. We did make it down to La Bufadora and enjoyed the shopping and dinners down that way. We attempted to go down to the beach but din't make it down this time but, WE WILL next time. The casita is private, but Janika is available to answer questions when she's home. We will be back hopefully before the summer is over. Thanks so much Janika for making this such an amazing weekend for us!

“Beautiful! The pictures don't do the casita or the view justice”

We had a wonderful 3 day stay. Ensenada is close enough to travel for supplies, but far enough away that you feel the seclusion. Easy drive to a wonderful beach. The casita was wonderfully comfortable for three of us. The views are absolutely stunning. We'd love to make another trip down.
