I've always used VRBO or Airbnb for weekly or monthly rentals. Recently on a forum someone recommended longtermlettings.com. I did a quick search on Ensenada and there were quite a few listings.

You will find lots of options in Ensenada. There is a big expat presence there. Rent for awhile before you permanently settle. Watch out there are lot of people inflating prices for foreigners. It is best to make a friend with a local to help negotiate, that way your gringo tax will not be so high.

Thanks all. Appreciate all the help I can get. I have a question about what kind of phone service everyone uses. Just found out my phone carrier does not have roaming in Mexico, Unbeliveable.
Like my Kias GPS does not extend into Mexico! This is where they make alot of KIas
, right? Sorry just ranting now!
Again, thank you for taking your time to answer my questions! Dena

If your talking about landlines in Ensenada there is telnor. Really your only option and will cost you about $25 per month. If you are talking about cell phone service you have lots of options. Telcel works the best in Baja. All the amigo plans come with unlimited talk and text. I believe it is like $26 per month for 8GB. No plans come with unlimited internet but on Telcel some apps like Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp don't count for usage.

I have AT&T Mexico. I pay by the year and it is equivalent to $10 usd/month. It includes unlimited calls and text in the Mexico, US and Canada and 2 GB of data/month, but this year they gave me a bonus 2 GB so it is 4 GB/month total. AT&T is good in all the bigger cities. In rural areas, Telcel coverage is better, so if I am spending time in a small town, I buy a Telcel chip and swap it in. I have an unlocked phone. I buy them from the manufacturer. I will never buy a phone from a carrier again. I have had too much frustration trying to get a phone company to unlock a phone.

Thanks! Very helpful. Must I wait to get to Mexico before I get the ATT service or can I set it up here in CA before I leave?

AT&T Mexico operates completely independently from AT&T US. I am guessing that you will need to wait and talk to them after you are in Mexico.
