La Ribera house description

POST-HURRICANE ODILE UPDATE: OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WAS RELATIVELY UNHARMED AND CASITA DE LUNES SUSTAINED NO DAMAGE! Baja California Sur is a peninsula separated from mainland Mexico by the Sea of Cortez. This gives it a distinctive 'island' feel. Baja is often called 'the other Mexico'. Our home is located near the tip of the peninsula, on the Sea of Cortez side (also known as the east cape). We are a one hour drive north from the Los Cabos International Airport and far removed from the hussle and glitz of Cabo San Lucas. Step away from the pressures of everyday life and connect with the rhythm of the sea.

Casita de Lunes is located on the stretch of beach known as 'roosterfish alley' in a new, sparsely populated gated community. The village of La Ribera is 10 minutes away by car and Los Barriles, with it's many shops and restaurants, is 30 minutes away.

This is where the white sand desert meets the unbelievable aqua-marine blue of the ocean. John Stienbeck wrote about the teaming marine life here in his famous work 'Log From The Sea Of Cortez'. Imagine miles of sandy beach where turtles nest. Imagine an endless sea perfect for swimming. Imagine fish jumping, frigit birds soaring, pelicans feeding. Walk the beach fly fishing or casting for rooster fish, sierra and dorado. Use the kyaks provided or hire a local guide and ponga from nearby La Ribera for a day on the sea. In winter, this coast is internationally acclaimed for it's windsurfing. The coral reef of nearby Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling to be found anywhere in the world. This is a place where you could pass days marveling at nature and never stray more than a few steps from the house... or have grand adventures you'll never forget!

Casita de Lunes, designed by renowned Mexican architect Carlos Montero, is the perfect space for indoor/outdoor living. The livingroom, diningroom and master bedroom/bath open directly onto the huge flagstone patio which is steps away from the sandy beach of the Sea of Cortez. The two guest rooms open to a protected courtyard sanctuary. Each guest room contains a queen and a twin bed and share a spacious jack 'n jill bath with 2 sinks and a shower. There is also a courtyard powder room and 2 outdoor showers for rinsing off after a swim.

Maybe you've wondered about those funny domes on the roof of the house? They are designed to increase the ventilation in the house by drawing the warm air up and out through a clever chimney-type system. The cross ventilation is excellent and generally there is an ocean breeze which keeps the house cool and comfortable in all but the hottest summer days. We also have several fans in the house which may be arranged to best advantage when needed.

The house deliberately lacks television, DVD's and 21st century entertainment. (Visitors never seem to miss these things one bit!) Cell phone is provided as is bottled water which will be delivered by our caretaker and amigo, Manolo, who will be at your service for anything you need. Also, Lorena is available to cook for you when you want a real 'night off'! Linens are provided as well as plenty of beach towels, cooking and dining ware and a small charcoal grill.
