Situated in El Sargento near the big arroyo and hot springs palapa beach, this premium beachfront home enjoys unobstructed, 180-degree views of Isla Cerralvo and the Sea of Cortez from every room.
Our lot extends to the beach for easy windsurfing, kiteboarding, snorkeling or kayaking. We enjoy a favorable position south of the arroyo point, too, so you windsport lovers won't have to slog through a wind shadow to get to the good stuff.
Master bedroom has a California king bed and private bath. Large guest bedroom with separate entrance and private bath features a traditional palapa roof and queen bed plus full-size trundle. This spacious layout is ideal for two couples, or for parents with up to four teens. Our huge wrap-around sundeck with hot tub, hammocks and chaises longues offers great sunbathing, lounging and entertaining.
Additional amenities include flat-screen TV with movie library; stereo with iPod dock; WIFI DSL connection; ceiling fans; rooftop deck; propane deck heater for chillier nights; fire pit overlooking the beach; and use of our sail shed.
NEW: Just the two of you? Just-built, fully furnished casita on the property sleeps 2 with full kitchen, private bathroom, entertainment/seating area, wraparound patio, rooftop deck, WIFI, and most of the same amenities as the casa except for the hot tub.
A typical day at Casa MarViento (“sea wind”) goes like this: Wake to a magnificent sunrise over the Sea of Cortez. Sip coffee on the 'infinity deck' or go for a walk/run on the beach. Feeling especially energetic? Take a spin on the single-track mountain bike trails that lace the hillsides. On a particularly calm morning, take a kayak for a spin and check out the colorful reef fish below. About 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. most days, the wind comes up. Kite or windsurf as long as your courage, enthusiasm and endurance allow.
Enjoy margaritas in the hot tub on the deck as the wind calms and the sun sets. If your timing is right, watch an inspiring full moon emerge from the eastern horizon. Nip into town for dinner at one of our many good taquerias or whip up something yourself in the fully outfitted kitchen. Trade water sport war stories, watch a movie or just fall into a deep, soothing sleep. Wake up and repeat.
Quiet, private location north of La Ventana and El Sargento near the big arroyo and hot springs beach. Direct access to beach and excellent windsurfing and kiting launch. Outdoor fire pit overlooking the bay; wood-burning pizza oven and outdoor BBQ area; sail shed; kayaks; and mountain bike also available.

About the owner: Chris and Kathleen are avid windsurfers who spend summers in the Columbia River Gorge and winters in Baja Sur. Chris grew up in a family-run bed-and-breakfast, and Kathleen is a former hotel catering/conventions manager and food writer. They have been living part-time in Mexico since 2007.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Located on the north end of El Sargento, Casa MarViento is away from the noise and crowds of the La Ventana windsurfing scene. The absence of significant noise and light make the setting muy tranquillo. On moonless nights, the sky is spectacular and you'll easily see meteor showers that the crowds in La Ventana can't. The water is generally less crowded as well, aside from the usual daily play-through of down-winding kiters from the palapa beach. Our sail shed and trailer on the beachfront offer handy storage for your gear. Friendly neighbors and a spectacular bluff top view round out the picture.
