Angelians, Northern Californians and Europeans have enjoyed the coast of Baja, New Mexico since its inception. Many have purchased a second home, or have retired there, especially at Hacienda Bajamar Oceanfront Golf Resort.
Noted as the most beautiful place to play golf and purchase a home, Hacienda Bajamar Oceanfront Golf Resort is located about 40 miles south of Rosarito Beach. Within the well-secured community there are three 9-hole golf courses.
According to Rudy Mellado, the golf pro at Bajamar, there’s no course quite like Bajamar, which gives golfers challenges they look for in a course, especially the ocean tees. Throughout the course there are many homes families have purchased and more are being built. Currently there are 550 homes, 100 apartments and condominiums.
Mario Garcia, the General Manager of Bajamar, mentioned that there’s a long history with this community. In 1976, golf legend Percy Clifford designed the golf course, in 1991 David Fleming redesigned the course, and in 1996 Robert Hagge designed the ocean-front course.
To fulfill the needs of the community two plants produce crystal clear water for the entire 500 acres, as well as a convention center that holds 400 people. Large events such as concerts with local and national acts accommodate 5,000-30,000 people in the amphitheater.
Golfers enjoy the quaint Hacienda Hotel which has 72 regular rooms and 10 suites. After a long day of golf, golfers leave the clubhouse to enjoy the cocktail bar and the restaurant.
For families that don’t play golf, there are three swimming pools and four tennis courts.
This is truly a community of friends, where folks retire. The cost of a new home is $225,000 to $285,000. Homes are furnished with granite countertops, and the latest high tech appliances included in the 2 and three bedroom homes, with a full bathroom for each room. But for those who want to build their own homes, Bajamar parcels are in compliance , as they have full permits with built-in electricity.
For this reason there will never be high rises to interfere with any homes in the Bajamar community.
Builders and developers are attracted to Bajamar because the legalities of building have been planned out over the years. Just a half hour north of Ensenada proper, and one hour away from the wine country, Bajamar Ocean Front Golf Resort is a dream come true for those who want to retire.
With a winery in the process of being built on property and a hotel, spa and restaurant to accommodate guests, the future is bright for this oceanfront golf resort.
