Overview

About the property

April & May still available - when it’s still not too hot but the ocean is nice and warm. Baja Breezes (Casa Brisas) is a self-catered and self-operated two bedroom house located in the breathtaking beauty of the East Cape of Baja. It is accessible by car in about 1 ½ hours from San Jose Del Cabo and the Cabo Airport. It is situated in a small enclave of Canadians and Americans in the secure community of Castillo de Arena on a hillside overlooking fantastic sand dunes and the Sea of Cortez. The beach is a 12 minute walk or 3 minute drive away. When we are there we swim most days just off the large sand dune. The community is 8 km south of Los Frailes, the start of Cabo Pulmo national park and a wonderful snorkel spot where you can buy fish directly from the fishermen on the beach. We are 16 km south of the town of Cabo Pulmo, a world-famous coral reef diving site where tours are available and 1hr 20 min from the Los Barriles kite surfing area. The home is about 1,900 square feet; the first bedroom is on the main floor, and the second is upstairs accessed by outdoor stairs. Both bedrooms have queen beds. The house sleeps up to 6 with an air-bed available for the kids or extra guests. One large or two small well- behaved dogs are welcome. The upstairs bathroom has a toilet and sink; the main floor has a full bathroom with a shower. There is free internet, laundry facilities, a fully equipped kitchen, and dining area. In the living-room, watch netflix or listen to your favorite music. There is a BBQ area, and several palm roof shaded patios to lounge, gather for meals, and enjoy the breathtaking view. We often see whales frolicking off-shore and colourful sunsets over the mountains. The community is off-the-grid and operates on solar energy and propane. You won’t tell the difference though, except that hair dryers and toasters are not permitted as they drain the solar energy batteries. Our caretaker (English speaking) lives nearby and is available during your stay. Unlike some vacation rentals, we spend several months a year here so the kitchen really is fully equipped and the house is clean and well maintained. We have a UV purifying system for the water as well as bottled water available. All dishes, cooking utensils, bedding, towels, paper products, and cleaning supplies are provided. You will need to bring your own food.

Rates include 19% Mexican tax. Five-night minimum.

About Julie Moore

We rented several different homes in the area over a few winters before taking the plunge and buying this house in 2017. We couldn't be happier with the house and the community. The rest of the year we live in British Columbia, Canada.

Wonderful family retreat on the East Cape!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place for our family getaway on the East Cape! Super comfortable space, loved this house. Julie was a superb host, attentive to our needs and responded quickly over email. I would definitely come back here the next time we find ourselves in Baja.

The house is well designed for the elements - and as remote as it is, it does truly feel like a home, as opposed to just a vacation rental. Big kitchen filled with every utensil and pot you’d need to cook up a storm. We were here for Christmas and I even baked a cake! More than I can summarize here but some of the highlights of the house: Very comfy beds and pillows, tons of bedding, great couches, excellent water pressure, loved the shower design so you can rinse off easily after the beach, WiFi and Netflix on the TV is a big plus, (assuming the internet is working, which it wasn’t at first due to cloudy weather but, you’re on vacation right? Internet is a bonus but definitely not a necessity). The house is spacious inside and out - multiple decks to accommodate different weather conditions. The second bedroom is upstairs, accessible by an outdoor staircase, which wasn’t obvious to me from from the ad - or maybe I overlooked it. This would be perfect for two couples since there is a great separation of space. As a family of 4 with small children we werent sure how to do sleeping arrangements since we wouldn’t be able to hear our kids, so we just ended up all sleeping upstairs with the kids on the air mattress that Julie mentioned and it worked out fine. Not bad to watch dawn over the Sea of Cortez from the birds nest up there! The kids loved running the paved loop around the outside of the house so all in all, this was actually an awesome house for kids. I also liked the fact that the house is on solar electricity- we have a solar array at home but it’s still on the grid so it was kind of a cool aspect to be off the grid - it was never an issue, though it’s good to be sensitive to not leaving lights on. Our big goal here was the snorkeling and the proximity to epic snorkeling was awesome. We had our own gear but Julie has extra snorkels and fins in the garage, along with other beach items. I could go on but if you’re considering a trip to the east Cape or Cabo Pulmo you’ll just have to discover yourself how awesome this place is!

We really enjoyed ourselves at Casa Brisas! The kitchen comes well equipped, beds are very comfortable and the outside sitting areas are amazing!! We enjoying morning coffee while watching the sunrise and listening to the doves from the patio. A little slice of paradise!
