This is what a beach vacation should be...The Beach Retreat is a vacation home for families. Although we are only minutes from Todos Santos and Cabo San Lucas, we are light-years apart. The closest hotel is 12 miles away, there are no beach vendors constantly bothering you, and the nearest bar is 10 miles away. Here, families can safely hike the beautiful desert mountains, arroyo waterfalls and caves are a peaceful stroll away, and the beach is simply spectacular with miles of secluded white sand and natural rock formations. And then there’s the hammocks—There is nothing quite like a siesta in one of your hammocks, the constant sound of the Pacific surf and the steady breezes rock you to sleep as palms sway.
Our weather is perfect! Being on the Pacific, we are 75-80 during the day, and low-sixties at night. And that’s ten months a year. Even when it’s 100 degrees in Cabo in June and July, we’re still in the low 80’s.
The home itself sits on 1.6 acres of the most amazing and beautiful property in Baja. We have 200 feet of beachfront, and the home sits atop a 30’ granite bluff. Steps lead to the beach, where we have a small grotto for nighttime campfires, and then four miles of perfect white-sand beach dotted with granite and limestone rock formations. To our east are the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, rising to almost 6,000 feet. Sunrise over the mountains, sunset over the Pacific.
Whale Season at The Beach is simply amazing! From November thru February thousand of Gray Whales migrate from Alaska to the Sea of Cortez, passing closer to us than anywhere else on the Pacific coast. Typically we'll spot 30 or 40 a day, right from our own back yard, and often within 40 yards of the beach. Breeching and spy-hopping is common, and a sight you'll never forget.
To meet your needs, our American property manager / concierge lives in the casita at the entrance to the property, just outside the gates. You’ll always have total privacy, but they are always close by when needed. Maid service is twice per week, more if you’d like.

About the owner: Susan and Jim Smith purchased the land in 1998, then were transfered to Paris for two years. While living in Paris, Jim traveled between Paris and Cabo to supervise construction of their beach home. In 2002 the final phase of the home was completed and we lived here part-time, splitting time between here and Dallas. What started out as a 1,200 sq ft vacation home ended up near 8,000 sq ft with 8 bedrooms, two living rooms and a 120' patio overlooking the Pacific. In 2009 we also opened our 'retirement' business, Cocina Pacifica Cooking School and The Beach B&B. We now spend about 3/4 of our time here at the beach, and the rest of the time in Dallas with our children and 4 grandchildren. While here, Susan spends most of her time walking our two labs on the beach, reading from one of our hammocks, and a few hours a day working from home via computer. Jim stays busy with fishing--either from the beach in front of the house, or from our boat. Can't forget whale watching: From November thru February we spot dozens of whales each day from our back yard, plus we take the boat out for some really close-up encounters. Spectacular!
Why the Owner Chose Todos Santos: Why did we build Cocina Pacifica? Four miles of private beach. Migrating whales literally in our back yard. Incredible fishing. Nearby Todos Santos, which is much more quaint and enjoyable than Cabo. Nearby arroyo waterfalls. Perfect weather: our weather is so different than down in Cabo because we are on the Pacific. August and September are hot, but the rest of the year it's 75 during the day and low 60's at night. And it never rains, with about 360 days of pure sunshine. Spend a day here, and you'll understand why this is paradise.
