High-End Entertaining & Peaceful Relaxation - Baja, California Style
Available to discerning individuals wishing to host a special event in a very elegant yet comfortable and relaxing environment, this oceanfront contemporary villa was designed, decorated, furnished and staffed for luxurious living and turnkey large-scale entertaining. Here are some of the features that distinguish it from other event venues in The Californias.
Ideally located overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the small, safe and private cobblestone enclave of San Antonio del Mar, this venue is just 12 miles from the US border and 40 minutes from the San Diego and Tijuana airports. Transportation to/from the US is available, including 14-passenger Mercedes vans, UBER and professional drivers.
San Antonio del Mar provides many unique amenities that you will be hard pressed to find in other nearby locales. These include several restaurants (American sports bar/grille, seafood, high end gourmet and sushi/tapas); live entertainment venues (rock and roll, popular female vocalist); a convenience store, day spa, pool, park and tennis within the community’s gates and easy walking distance.
The Real del Mar Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa is across the road with two restaurants and a cool late- night Cuban bar/humidor. Rosarito Beach is four miles away and Tijuana is 20 minutes away; both have many highly regarded restaurants and entertainment venues. The vineyards and gourmet restaurants of Guadalupe Valley are just 50 minutes south; with Ensenada ten minutes more.
Partially cantilevered over a cliff 25 ft. above the surf, this venue is directly across from the Coronado Islands which serve as the centerpiece of a truly jaw-dropping view. The highlight for guests is always the outdoor oceanfront area as those who appreciate ocean views and outdoor spaces often fall in love with this venue because of its stunning panoramas. Even inside, floor-to-ceiling windows provide amazing views and an abundance of natural light.
Designed for both living and entertaining, this home’s fourteen rooms, 71⁄2 baths and ≈ 7,000 sq. ft. of indoor space is distributed over five levels, each having an en suite bedroom (four with ocean views). It comfortably sleeps ten in three king and two queen beds. A piano bar/lounge that accommodates 30 (and seats 15+ guests for a movie or projection-screen viewing) adjoins a pool room, sauna room, ocean view steam room and a small gym.
This home’s design and sheer size facilitate both the convenience of being together and privacy. You will never feel crowded here; though you may have trouble finding other guests on occasion.
Reliability & Security
This is a highly reliable facility built to US standards with necessary redundancies. There are two kitchens and two bars; two water heaters (each capable of six back to back showers); a 3,000 liter propane gas supply; a 700 gallon reserve water supply (should the municipal service fail); two washer/dryers; seven gas fireplaces; five conveniently located mini-fridges and a very large freezer. Though the neighborhood is a private gated community it is patrolled by city police 24/7.
This venue has 150+ fixtures on dimmers and multi-color remote-control exterior lighting for very effective mood lighting. The beds have high-end US mattresses; two are memory foam. Internet (via portable hot spots) and nine TVs are located throughout the venue with DISH (featuring HBO, Showtime, Starz and PPV events). Each level has a sound system with Bluetooth-enabled premium vintage audio equipment and XM-Sirius feed. The venue has a wine cellar and small cigar humidor. Ocean access is via a staircase next door. A professional masseuse is a call away.
Elegant, Luxurious Setting
Tastefully furnished in an elegant yet comfortable modern style, this venue’s architectural elements include floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a glass-ceilinged grand staircase that connects all five levels and floors of marble, travertine, limestone, onyx, mahogany and wool carpet. The venue features commissioned paintings by a local artist and many other art and decorative pieces. There are more than fifty full-size tropical plants throughout the venue.
The surf, sand, sky, sun, moon and stars are all in full view from everywhere in this roomy, clean and well cared for venue; a relaxing place to enjoy a beautiful ocean view, the sounds of crashing waves, dolphin shows and phenomenal sunsets that create memories. This is a stylish yet relaxed setting at which most anyone would be proud to host a very special event.
This venue is well suited for those wanting a relaxing yet elegant oceanfront setting to host a special event -- a wedding, reunion, birthday, baptism, baby shower, B-Mitzvah, celebration of life, anniversary, vow renewal, sweet sixteen/quincean~era party, graduation or holiday gathering. It is also well suited for an organization or business wishing to host an upscale meeting, executive retreat, awards dinner, retirement/farewell party, promotion, fundraiser, gala, political gathering, fashion show or special lunch or dinner. Limited pre- and post-event overnight accommodations may be available. Pets, unruly children and rowdy adults, are frowned upon.
