Married, single, young, old, with kids in tow, retired or entrepreneurs — Baja Mexico is enticing expats with its promise of a better lifestyle. The choices are unlimited. The colorful culture of colonial and fishing towns, low home prices, world-class surfing on the crashing waves of the Pacific, snorkeling in the crystalline fish-rich waters of the Sea of Cortez, strolling along waterfront boardwalks, or sampling cuisine ranging from tasty street tacos to world-class dining… Baja has it all.
They Came to Visit and Stayed to Live: San Antonio Delmar Innkeepers.
Former Oregon residents Loretta and Joe Taylor first visited northern Baja twenty years ago to attend a friend’s birthday party. When the friend told them how much he’d paid for his oceanfront property and said the one next door was for sale, the Taylors thought about it… for eight minutes, before deciding to go for it. They worked on and added to their two-story, oceanfront villa over the years and eventually decided to offer the entire first floor – open kitchen and family room with fireplace and cathedral-beamed ceiling, private en-suite bedroom, and panoramic ocean views for rental as “Sea4Two.”
Baja expats Loretta and Joe live in the expansive second floor of the villa. “We offer a variety of services to our guests, such as picking them up from the airport, the use of an SUV, obtaining dinner reservations or theater tickets,” says Loretta.” “We enjoy interacting with our guests, and love the lifestyle we’ve created.”
The Sweet Savor of Success: Rosarito Restaurant Owner.
California resident Susanne Stehr packed up and left Ventura County in 1999 to be near her furniture manufacturing company in Rosarito. One night, a couple walked by a window at the factory that had been staged as a fancy dining room. One said, “Is that a restaurant?” and the other replied, “No, but I sure would like to eat somewhere like that!” Having spent twelve years as a director of catering in her past, Susanne thought, “I can do this!” and hence, Susanna’s Restaurant, a favorite of locals, tourists, and even Californians who drive across the border just to sample her tantalizing cuisine was born.
