Here’s what our past guests have said about Las Gaviotas
–The accommodations were excellent, very good condition and well maintained. We rented through a guy named Alexi who lent us a surfboard and tennis rackets and had lots of good tips for us. It was totally relaxing and an easy trip from San Diego.

Jose Z., July 2018
-The houses are just beautiful and there is not a bad view around. The staff was friendly and security seemed to have an eye on everything which I appreciated. Enjoyed meals up the road at K38 Taco surf and Covelli Pizza both were outstanding. I don’t know how we haven’t stayed here before but we are definitely returning.
