As you pass through the green twelve foot high wrought iron gates of Las Gaviotas you are treated to a stunning view of the ocean. It is wrapped in the scenery of elegant houses shaded by stately mature palm trees and graced with a great variety of flowers, shrubs and bushes in soothing colors. This subdivision is more than 40 years old but you would never know it because the owners and the homeowners association take great pride in the maintenance of the property. The 300 houses located here all have inviting ocean views because they are terraced up in five rows from the beach.
Las Gaviotas (The Seagulls) lies at kilometer 41 along the coast eight miles south of Rosarito and has long been acclaimed by ex-pats from the U.S. as an excellent place to buy a second home close to the border between the U.S. and Mexico. Las Gaviotas is blessed with a surplus of useful amenities. The clubhouse area houses the property management, accounting and landscaping staff as well as two conference rooms, a library, a well-equipped workout room, and the community restrooms. One of the conference rooms is very large and has even been used for weddings and dances. It overlooks the sparkling swimming pool and jacuzzi set on the terrace above the ocean.
