The white sand beach with great swimming, fishing, kiting, surfing or windsurfing access makes it the perfect getaway for family and water sports enthusiasts.

Year round wind sports, surfing and fishing The break in front is gentle and great for beginners. Better surfers can paddle out to the line up and ride waves all day without a crowd. Destiladeras has one of the few Cabo beaches that's ideal for swimming, and if you just want to get away from it all you won't find a quieter place.

There are 4 separate buildings in this complex. The main house sits on top of the beach garage with the kitchen, living room and extensive patio area. The dinning area is outside, covered and overlooks the Sea of Cortez. The kitchen has granite counter tops with bar seats that sit 6.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: My house on the beach at Bahia Terranova is new, completed building in March or 2009. I discovered the neighborhood after many year of camping at 9 Palms and with 4 friends, 11 years ago, built a small surf house up the hill. I fell in love with the area and decided to buy my own property on the beach. The neighborhood has only 10 houses and is set back from the road in a gated community. My neighbors are very quiet, mostly retired Americans living a simple beach life. As my life changed I realized I needed a place of my own and started the building process 3 years ago. Since I'm still working as a professional skier I can't be there in the winter. So with much stress I'm listing on VRBO hoping to find some surfers who will love my place and take good care of it. I live in Bahia Teranova because I love it there. This is the place I will retire some day.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Tortuga:
                      I didn't build my house to rent. But I have to rent it in order to afford it. I build this place to live, surf, fish, kite and relax. It has one of the best swimming beaches in all of the east cape and down to Cabo. It's a place I can share with friends and family and offers something for everyone. Because it's so far away from town, and off the grid you really relax into a quiet life style. We're not rushing into to town for dinners or social life. We buy our groceries and we stay there for as long as possible before we have to go to town for supplies. You don't need any fancy clothing and flip flops are the only shoes you'll need. This is why I built this house.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Very few people, uncrowded surf beak, gated community, long quiet days, fantastic fishing, turtles nesting, cows on the beach, local fisherman, nice neighbors, warm water, excellent snorkeling right out front. You don't need to go anywhere to get it all.
