We always stay at Ventana Windsports and we LOVE it! We go to LV several times throughout the winter to get our wind fix and we always land at Windsports. The staff is amazing, beach access is as good as it gets and the rooms are great – clean, comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect – both for launching kites and for walking or biking easily to nearby bars and restaurants. The place feels like a home away from home and we can immediately feel like we are on vacation as soon as we arrive.
We were so incredibly happy with your place. Nothing could’ve been better. The location was perfect for the event, the place is beautiful and we cannot say enough about the food. Thank you so much for having us. We now know where we’ll be staying when we come to La Ventana again. Everyone was very friendly and we look forward to meeting you next time we’re there.
If you want to go where life’s warm and slow, go to Baja. If you want fantastic wind for kiting, go to La Ventana. If you want the place to relax well, eat amazing food, lounge in the shade and watch the kite/air show or sit in the hot tub after you get out of the water, go to Ventana Windports. You can feel the care and hard work that Esteban and crew have put into creating this place over the years. You’ll not find another like it anywhere.
My wife and I spent a week at Ventana Windsports between Christmas and New Year’s. It’s a beautiful place with all the comforts of home, but none of the annoyances, and plenty of wind. Steve keeps about several quivers of sails rigged and in a bodega on the beach, right next to a big rack of about 35 boards in any range you could ever need. Sailing literally out of his backyard/beach – that’s the way a vacation should be! On the calm days, my wife took beginner lessons and I went exploring in one of the kayaks. Overall, it was a great vacation!
