Help-Need sugg: Place to stay (beach,view, pool, kitchen)

I've spent hours upon hours trying to find a nice place to stay for next Christmas. I'm looking for something that would accommodate 2 - 4 people (house, casitas...) with either a view or beachfront, pool, and close proximity to town. If it's just for my husband and myself, I'd like to keep it under $250/night. I like the idea of having a few others around, but not tight-knit rooms. I'm a teacher, who loves working with kids, but I'd like to escape as many of them as possible while vacationing (had a couple bad experiences where they took over the place).

Thanks so much for your suggestions.

I would recommend Villa Santa Cruz. It is right on the beach, all of the rooms (only 4 total) have amazing views, and it is within your budget. It is not close to town however, but the peace and tranquility are second to none.

We like Flora Del Mar. About 2 km from town, with an ocean view, pool and tennis courts. They have 2 comfy casitas with full kitchen (well equipped with pots pans, full size fridge and stoves, microwave etc.) Flora Del Mar is also a B&B with 3 rooms in the main house. The grounds are attractive and the resident dogs are friendly. The sunsets are spectacular and the area is pin drop quiet. If you don't have a car, town is within walking distance if you don't mind a longish dusty walk. Rides are pretty easy to get in this friendly and small community. We loved the place and the sweet and charming hostess, Marilyn. It was one of our best experiences in Baja California. The price last winter was well within the range you mention. I cannot imagine it has gone up a lot. There is a pool, but it may not be heated. If the weather is hot, it doesn't need to be heated.
