Located beachfront on Mexico's tranquil Sea of Cortez, Casa Cardonal is an exquisite private estate with a pristine sandy beach, swimmable water, infinity pool, Jacuzzi and extensive outdoor seating and dining areas. Our guests enjoy world-class fishing, kayaking and ATV exploration in and around the casual fishing village of El Cardonal.
This private one acre compound, built in 2005, and is available for rental by the day (4 night minimum), week, or month.
The Casa its 4,000 square feet of dramatically open space provides spectacular views of the water and room for entertaining a crowd. The Casa includes all the modern amenities including satellite TV, a built-in stereo system, wireless internet, and a “state of the art” kitchen with wine coolers, warming drawers, 6-burner gas range, and microwave.
The 2,000 sq. ft. Casita (guest house) offers a full kitchen, living area with fireplace, and two bedrooms with en suite baths, sleeping up to 6 additional guests.
In addition to the estate itself, what sets Casa Cardonal apart is the staff that we have to serve you. Octavio will provide your transportation to and from the airport and offers numerous excursions to anywhere you might want to go in the Baja area. He also offers guided ATV tours that allow you to go much farther than you might on your own, including a trip up the arroyo to see the ancient petroglyphs.
Francesca provides catering services and makes amazing meals including all of the bounty of the sea, delicious steak dinners and, of course, traditional Mexican fare.
Mino is your onsite caretaker and the boat captain for the Casa's 25ft fishing panga. He is at your service to take you fishing, golfing (25 minute boat ride), on an ecotour to the area's best snorkeling or to Isla Cerralvo (a pristine uninhabited island with amazing shells, turtle nests and sandy beaches). Mino is an excellent fisherman. He won the Los Barriles Dorado Fishing Derby in 2005 and helped one of our guests land a 550 pound black marlin in September of 2010. It is one thing to hook a fish like this; it is another to get it into a 25ft panga!
We provide a concierge (Hector and Kathinka) to show you around the place and explain the features of the Casa and the area. Their job is to help you plan your vacation and arrange anything you need. Maria Luisa is your housekeeper and will arrive each day to make the beds, wash the dishes, and do whatever laundry you want done. You will want to stay forever!
