                                This was absolutely the best place for a family vacation. It was so easy to be a stones throw to the beach. The most enjoyable part of our days were the sunrises and sunsets and the incredible view. Jill made us feel so welcome...even our dog was loving this place. Lots of places to run. The restaurant (ZACS GRILL) was a convenient and easy walk. We enjoyed everything about Los Zacatitos. The guys fished and surfed and kids and Moms did lots of pool reading. This was a place for big family BBQs. Just what we wanted. Jill was very helpful and was always easy to find. The house had everything...she even had an extra dog food bowl. We will be back!

                                We just returned from a week at Jill's property, travelling with two adults and four teenage surfers. The property was just as described in the pictures and information--spacious, well-kept, and very family-friendly. Jill was staying nearby and always attentive and available to answer any questions. She was also very helpful and accommodating during the reservation and payment process. Some of the highlights from our perspective: -Spacious home , with everything needed for cooking and living. We prepared and ate every meal there and really enjoyed the awesome outside kitchen/BBQ/palapa area -Large garage for parking car and storing surfing/beach equipment -Very nice pool area -Beach right out front, in 3-5 minute walking distance. -For the teenagers, internet access -Lots of great spaces for hanging out, privacy, watching sunset, stars, etc Overall, we thought the property was excellent and hope to return soon. We recommend it for travelers who want to get away from the crowds and enjoy a true Baja experience, while staying in a well-equipped, spacious home. And if you're a surf family too, its ideal.

                                My daughter-in-law's friend lives across the arroyo from Jill's place. What a wonderful coincidence that turned out to be! My wife and I, along with our son, grandson and DIL spent a wonderful week as this fabulous hacienda. We had to be in the Baja for a wedding so we did the all-inclusive thing in Cabo for four days reveling with the wedding party. Then via an interesting road up the coast of the Sea of Cortez about 30 kms, we arrived in Los Zacatitos where we were warmly greeted by Jill our host at her Casa Diamante. And I assure you, kind readers, it is a diamond class property! Our days were spent on the beach or around the pool watching our grandson learn to swim (OK, he learned to float... it's a great first step). Jill has all the toys to make beach days fun and exciting. Great surfing, sailing and snorkeling are a five minute walk down the arroyo to the wonderful, warm ocean. From our pool deck overlooking the ocean, we watched whales breech and heard the bang of their tails as they hit the water. Then we would hit the pool and spend great family time in the bath-like water... bliss. Did I mention the weather? We were there the first week in December and it was six days before we saw our first cloud. Never have you seen a sky so intensely blue. It's hot but surprisingly dry. I expected much higher humidity but it wasn't a factor. The sun was warm but didn't seem as intensely strong as experienced in the Caribbean. We all left with great tans! (don't tell my dermo). Don't expect night life in Zacatitos. 9 PM is known as Zacatitos Midnight and, as we soon found out, when the sun goes down everything gets very, very dark. Jill's outside kitchen with its gourmet barbecue and seating for a big dinner party, was the best place to watch the sunset. With Classic Vinyl tunes playing on the Sirius satellite radio, we prepared and enjoyed great food (some bought at the local market) washed down with the finest tequila concoctions I've ever had (thanks Jill!). By the way, having Jill on site in the casita was fabulous. She not only knows how the run this "off-the-grid" property but she's a charming host who was very gracious in accommodating our every need. Thanks Jill! So, did we like this property? Yup! Will we return? Absolutely!

                                We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Casa Diamonde for a fun filled fabulous week in December 2012. We rented the main house (a couple, my inlaws, and our 4 yr old) which is stunningly beautiful, while owner Jill stayed in the casita. It was great having Jill there to answer all our questions and show us how everything worked - not to mention that she can make a killer margarita! The pool was absolutely amazing, perfect temp everyday. Our 4 year old barely left the pool the entire week (except to pee, of course ;-)) The satellite radio provided a perfect stream of our favourite music both inside and poolside. We also had fun down at the beach, only a few minutes walk - there's a great spot for swimming and playing in the waves. We borrowed Jill's stand up paddle boards one day, which was a lots of fun. The best thing though, in my opinion, is the million dollar view. This casa is on top of a hill, literally surrounded by the beautiful waters of the Sea of Cortez. We sat everyday, mesmerized, as we watched whales surfacing and spouting, batfish jumping and splashing and even saw a few humpbacks fully breach - which was absolutely thrilling! Zacatitos is an amazing, unique little off-the-grid community comprised mostly of expats/ snowbirds from Cali, Washington and western Canada. The locals are incredibly friendly. There is a little organic market every Wednesday morning (at the only Bar & Grill in town) where you'll find amazing produce, bread and baked goods, seafood, locally made jewelry and more. Only a 5 minute walk from Casa Diamonde. I cannot say enough about this fabulous property and most gracious and best host, Jill! We will definitely be back - in fact, I'll be counting the days until we can return to this little piece of paradise.

                              Year Purchased: 2002

                              About the owner: After many years of travelling, looking for the perfect warm, vacation spot to build our family home away from our home in Alberta, Canada, we discovered Baja California Sur....and fell in love with the beautiful, unparalleled seaside community of Los Zacatitos on the East Cape.

                              Why the Owner Chose Los Zacatitos:
                              Having lived here for several years, we still wake up everyday overwhelmed by the unspoiled beauty of the coastline, beaches, the mountains...and the wonderful freedom the East Cape offers for both residents and visitors to explore almost any activity they wish. Every spectacular sunrise, mountain sunset and full moon sparkling on the surf, feels like a first, even after years of watching and gazing in awe(not even taking into account the hundreds of photos we've taken!) The desert wildlife is abundant with donkeys and cattle roaming freely throughout Zacatitos and the arroyos and along the coast road. The ocean is always alive with migratory whales, that may keep you awake at night with the loud slapping of their tails; dolphins, sea lions and pelicans add to the glorious ever-changing waterfront views from Casa Diamante. Due to the fantastic East Cape location, Casa Diamante offers something for everyone. Famous surf breaks right out in front for surfers, whale watching all winter, no binoculars needed they are so close. Endlesss beaches for all water and beach activities or for just sitting under an umbrella and reading. And then, many guests don't even want to leave the pool area with the wonderful ocean view and sounds of the crashing waves, just enjoying peace among the palms. The close proximity to the quaint town of San Jose offers art galleries, shopping and restaurants.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Casa Diamante is situated on a hillside that offers a sense of being in a completely private oasis overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Even though surrounded by other villas, the property was built to offer privacy and unparalleled views. Casa Diamante offers incredible outdoor and indoor living, day or night. A retreat away from the hustle and bustle of hotels and all inclusives, but with most of the same activities and amenities available if desired. The space, setting and location of this seaside property makes it perfect for retreats for yoga, artists, boot camp/work-outs, cooking lessons, surf classes.
