I'll be in Escondido from mid Jan 2013 & will be looking at crashing somewhere for a month or 2 - so if you require a house mate give me a shout!
I'm staying in a hotel in la punta. for a month it's 4000 peso a room you can fit probs 3 people in some rooms more and less in others and it has a pool and kitchen and everything you need. Most people staying here are permanent like a month or more its pretty sweet. It's called sunset point hotel la punta.
