About the property

Tired of the hustle and bustle of daily life? Come south and stay at the Baja Family Retreat in the quiet community of Zacatitos. It’s only 30 minutes from San Jose del Cabo on the beautiful East Cape.

Our 2400 sqft home offers 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms with plenty of room for the family. Two bedrooms have their own private bathroom with large walk in tile showers and both lead to a balcony facing the sea. Most of the bedrooms offer a view of the sunrise over the Sea of Cortez right from your bed! Kitchen and living room have an open concept flow offering a great setting for the family including a sectional sofa, TV and blue-ray player. Off the side of the house is two levels of outdoor patios connected by a spiral staircase which leads all the way to the roof for 360 degree views of the Sierra de la Laguna mountains and Sea of Cortez! Sunsets over the mountains are amazing off any one of these outdoor spaces.

This off-the-grid living offers quiet nights and beautiful waters of the Sea of Cortez to play in all day. We are located only 4 miles from the famous Shipwrecks surf break with La Fortuna and Nine Palms just past that! You can drive down the dirt road along the sea and pull off to swim and play as you go or you can take a 10 min walk down to one of the beaches here in town. House is equipped with some snorkel gear, beach toys, umbrellas, beach chairs, and coolers for your use. We have a restaurant here that offers excellent local and American fare 7 days a week for lunch and dinner if you don’t want to cook.

About Keith & Sue Wharton

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary down here closing on the purchase of this house. We have four children but only one left at home. We are self employed in the construction industry in WA state and homeschool. This has allowed us a flexible schedule to travel back and forth.

Keith & Sue Wharton purchased this house in 2016

Why Keith & Sue Wharton chose Los Zacatitos

We have traveled the Baja Sur area since 2009 and fell in love with the small community of Los Zacatitos around 2013. We spent approximately 10 weeks a year traveling the area and decided it was time to buy our own place.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the peaceful atmosphere away from the city life of Cabo yet get enjoy the sunshine and beautiful waters that go with "going to Cabo". Keith took up surfing after traveling down here and found this the perfect spot to get to uncrowded surf breaks. Just short 15 min drive gets you out to perfect waves.

Great stay in Zacatitos

  • 5 of 5

We did exactly as the name suggests - a peaceful family retreat in Baja. Sue and Keith's place was great for our family of four! The location is great, practically designed, clean and well equipped. We cooked most nights and also walked down to the beach and Zac's when we were not off surfing. Sue is incredibly responsive and check-in and check out were a breeze. Thanks for a great stay!

A new favorite spot in baja

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Cabo many times and have always loved this area. As we get older we seem to get further from the nightlife and bright lights. We are from South Dakota where it is several miles to the nearest neighbor. We are use to peace and quiet, and this was just like home. Most of the time at night all you could hear was the sound of the ocean washing against the rocks of Punta Gorda a half mile away.

The house was awesome. Our favorite spot was the pool. Our second favorite spot was the roof with its wonderful view of the desert sunsets. Probably third place would be Zacs, a Mexican restaurant just a few blocks away that serves some of the best tacos in Mexico.

God willing we will stay there again, and we hope it is soon.
