Hidden away in between hills next to the Pacific Ocean about 15 minutes south of the San Ysidro Border, you will find a community that is well suited for retirees or families; its location is great for commuters or people who travel to San Diego often.
Real del Mar Golf Resort and Country Club has been considered one of the safest communities in northern Baja, and the residents are working hard to keep it that way by creating a Security Committee in 2007 and establishing regulations to ensure the safety and peace of mind of residents and homeowners. This gated community with 24 hour surveillance has been around for almost 20 years, undergoing several expansions due to its success; it currently has 9 sections, Estancias, Quintas, Cañada and Amalfi are some of them, with more underway. You have the choice to either purchase lots for a custom dream home, or an existing home with a view of equestrian fields, surrounding lands, golf course or ocean view, all worthy Baja real estate investments. The traditional architecture with the red roof tops and the development layout gives the area a small village kind of feel. Just imagine yourself falling asleep with sound of the ocean waves crashing, waking up to see the Islands outside your window or having a front row seat to beautiful sunsets every day.
Its popular 18 hole golf course with its over 50 bunkers, 6 lakes and 11of the 18 holes overlooking the ocean is a challenge for any player with the breeze constantly blowing. They host the annual Real Del Mar Golf Tournament and several others which have helped fund some local charities; for more information on the tournaments scheduled for the year you can visit their web page at www.realdelmar.com.mx .
Real del Mar also has one of Baja’s nicest Equestrian centers, offering lessons at every level and for all ages as well as sand tracks and grass tracks for riding; they also provide boarding, veterinary and transportations services for horse owners. But if you don’t like golf or horses but still want to stay in shape, you will also find a swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, a fitness center with individual and family memberships, yoga, aerobics and karate, or take a long walk enjoying the view and atmosphere. After you are all done getting your work out, you can pamper yourself in the spa with their aromatherapy body and facial treatments, all this with out having to drive to the scenic road and into town.
