Brett and Britta picked us up at the airport with cold Corona's, which was just what we need to adjust to the warm temperatures. It is a short drive to Rancho de la Sierra, and upon arrival our casita was well stocked with groceries and goodies we had asked them to shop for. Nothing better than a well stocked fridge with cold Coronas before a dip in the private swimming pool to cool off. We had the opportunity to visit Todos Santos and San Jose. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful and private surroundings of this resort. Britta speaks fluent Spanish which was helpful for our shopping trip to San Jose. They are lovely hosts and will do just about anything to ensure your stay meets your expectations....and there is no doubt you will want to return. I'm already planning a return trip this spring. Honestly, it really doesn't get any better, if you are looking for a peaceful, private setting away from the crowds of the all-inclusive resorts. I would strongly recommend you include this little gem in your plans. I know we will be back !!

If you are looking for a relaxing wind down of the everyday stresses of life, THIS is the place to go! I can honestly say that, as I have stayed there, was difficult to leave :( The photos definitely reveal the property and appearance. The hosts are amazing and truly would like you to enjoy the best stay and R & R you have ever experienced! I am looking forward to my next Mexican vacation and a stay at the ranch :)

We were picked up at the airport by Brett, and he just happened to have a half dozen cold beer in a cooler. And that was fantastic because by the time we left customs we were very parched. That was the BEST start to a wonderful holiday. We arrived at Rancho de la Sierra to find a fully stocked fridge, full of produce, cold beer and all the groceries we asked them to get. We never left the ranch for 3 days, we just unwound with our books by the pool. We then rented a car and went down to San Jose and the next day to San Lucas and our last day was spent travelling to Todos Santos having lunch at The Hotel California. We had a fantastic holiday at the ranch and will definitely go back.

About the owner: The Baja has always been a special place for Brett and Britta since meeting at the Los Cabos International Airport in 1997 and then honeymooning in La Paz in 1998. After travelling around the world, they were always drawn back to the Baja and knew that one day they would make this their home.
Why the Owner Chose Rancho de la Sierra:
Brett and Britta’s enthusiasm to share the peace and tranquility of their ranch as well as the desert flora and fauna, prompted them to create the Mini-mountain resort with the aim of sharing their experiences and unique lifestyle. Their casa is situated on the estate at Rancho de la Sierra, detached from the Mini-mountain Resort.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our 3 Casitas were designed with spectacular mountain views of Picacho San Lazaro and the San Jose valley to create a setting for a tranquil getaway and unique Baja vacation experience.
