Explore Puerta Del Mar
Nestled on a cliff 60 feet above the ocean is a community of single-family homes on large lots in one of the phases of Puerta Del Mar. The project is in the third and final phase of its development, and currently boasts about 70 homes in total. Each phase is its own separate residential area with its own gate-guarded entrance.
Puerta Del Mar is located at kilometer 54.5. To get there you take the Cuenca Lechera exit off the toll road, turn left and drive about 3 miles along the ocean view free road until you come to phase one with the big Puerta Del Mar sign. This community is approximately 14 years old. The houses are all individually built by the lot owners and all of them are very tastefully done. Most are also quite large, starting at about 2,500 square feet to well over 5,000 square feet. The architectural committee must approve your house and trim colors and there is a published pallet from which an owner may choose. There is no limitation on the size of the home you can build. It strictly depends on your budget. Lot prices begin in the low $60,000's and top out at over $200,000 depending on the view. Almost all homes have a forever unobstructed view of the ocean and the grounds are embellished with an abundance of palm trees.
Amenities include a clubhouse and pool with an exquisitely decorated bar area, containing a modern full-sized refrigerator. For the sports-minded, there is also a tennis court, a basketball court, and staircase access to a wide sandy beach. A beach is a terrific place for an invigorating walk as it extends on either side of the property and is about a mile in total length. All these amenities are in the third phase. This also houses the sales office which is advertised as open from 10:00 A.M. To 5:00 P.M. Friday through Sunday. But it was manned during our visit on a Thursday afternoon, so you might be accommodated on days other than the weekend.
All utilities in Puerta Del Mar are underground in this development. The development also has its own water tanks and unobtrusive sewage treatment system. Security is very good with 24/7 guards at the gates and a roving patrol car. The Home Owners Association's Board consists of eight owners and they hold their meetings once each quarter. There is a set of Rules and Regulations adopted by the homeowners which are strongly enforced making for a pleasant community in which to reside. Most properties in Baja California are built for you by a developer or are just single isolated lots without amenities. But if you wish to construct your own ocean view paradise in a well-organized community you should certainly make Puerta Del Mar a premium choice on your list.

Puerta Del Mar Beach Access
The beach is sandy all year long unlike some Baja beaches that are rocky most of the time. Access to the beach is reached at Phase One and Two through a staircase along the boardwalk. The beach is very private because there is a natural cove along the north end that makes public access to the beach difficult. On the south side, there’s another cove that encloses access to the beach.
Puerta Del Mar Security
Puerta Del Mar is a 24 hour/7 days a week gated and guarded community. Each of the three Phases has its own guard gate, as well as guards that patrol the facility. Only residences and their guests are permitted inside the development. Owners must notify the guards if they plan on having guests and all guests are required to register with the guards before entering the development.
Homeowners Association Cost
The HOA cost varies by unit and is determined by the sq. ft. of the unit. Currently, Puerta Del Mar's HOA is being managed by the developer. We have found that even though the developer is running the HOA and has made it challenging for short term renters, we think that this is an advantage for the owners that live there full time. Short term renters are usually here to party, which can on occasion be disruptive. Puerta Del Mar has done a great job in regards to making sure that they keep a balance between long term and short term renters. We are giving Puerta Del Mar a 5 Star rating because of how well they have done with the grounds, amenities, and security for the cost of the HOA.
