The Residences at Rancho La Puerta

The Residences Casa Club

The award-winning Rancho La Puerta wellness resort was established over 82 years ago by Deborah Szekely and her late husband, Edmond. Situated amongst the mountains of Mt. Kuchumaa and nestled in the valleys, Rancho La Puerta offerings were originally rustic and serene with no running water, no electricity, and tent accommodations. The miraculous transformation that has emerged throughout the last 82 years via constant, focused growth and dedication to leading the progressive path of wellness travel experiences has now led to The Residences at Rancho La Puerta, Tecate, B.C. 

Rancho la puerta residences

The Residences consist of 108 homes ideally located adjacent to a working vineyard with sweeping views of the mountains. After 3 years of renderings and careful planning, Sarah Szekely, President of Rancho La Puerta and daughter of the founders, recently visited the first fully furnished casita and unveiled her excitement. "I am proud to say that our first complete casita is truly spacious and elegant, yet still cozy and friendly.  The use of local brick walls and tile roofs link these buildings to the familiar construction style at The Ranch but they are refreshed with a modern simplicity and elegance––with more light and spaciousness."

Stepping into this next chapter of The Ranch's legacy, Sarah shares The Residences offer expansive mountain views, deep, rich earth tones melded with soft blues and creams, and luxuriously comfortable furnishings to enjoy a fireside repose in the living area or an evenings rest in the private master suite. Each residence offers a well-equipped kitchen for quiet dinners or sharing culinary adventures with friends.

Created as a sustainable village with a vineyard, a mediterranean inspired landscape, extensive gardens and walking paths connect the village and vineyard to the surrounding mountains and canyons. Homeowners will have access to year-round amenities such as morning guided hikes, fitness classes, multi-use spaces, a library, shared experiences such as outdoor concerts, meditation classes, wellness presentations, concierge-style services, amongst other offerings.

Designed by Mexico-based developer Grupo Espiritu, the architecture and gardens within The Residences community complement the warm ambiance of Rancho La Puerta resort with the use of environmentally friendly materials native to the area and the ultimate in Mexican craftsmanship. The Resident Village center is coming along which will include a water treatment plant that will soon be underway. Four more finished homes are expected to be delivered within the next two months.

The Residences are an extension of the already vibrant Rancho La Puerta community. The Residences offer a variety of ownership options including full ownership and fractional ownership through a partnership with Elite Alliance thereby making The Residences the world’s first wellness residence club of its kind.

No doubt, The Residences community is blossoming. Just as her parents Deborah and Edmond Szekely pioneered a wellness movement in 1940, join Sarah in the newest movement of forging a sustainable village, a vineyard, and a vision of greatest potential creating a balance of perennial wisdom and emerging technologies to support the utmost health and wellbeing.
