About Shannon Shields
We are a couple who has realized our long-standing dream of owning a house on Estero de Punta Banda. Guy has been coming to Baja since he moved from Ohio to California 30 years ago; Shannon fell in love with the flavors and people of Baja the first time she visited. Together, we have explored both sides of the Baja peninsula in our Piper Comanche airplane. In our opinion, no place on the planet combines the mild weather (low humidity), cool breezes, warm sun and sand, and the peaceful tranquility of Pedazo de Cielo (little slice of heaven)!
Shannon Shields purchased this House in 2017
Why Shannon Shields chose Lengüeta Arenosa
This is a special home on a pristine beach. The house was expanded in the early 2000s to include two upstairs bedrooms and a luxury spa bath. Most of the homes here have seen better days, with dorm-type furnishings and run-down interiors/exteriors. Our home has been lovingly restored with new paint, furnishings, comfortable beds and top-tier bedding. Each room has been lovingly and tastefully decorated to appeal to the most discriminating guest.
What makes this House unique
Updated kitchen and open floor plan. All new appliances, including a modern dishwasher (a rarity on this beach). Perfect for large and small groups. Beautiful views from every room with a 7-mile white sand beach as your backyard. Plush outdoor seating on the magnificent beach side with breathtaking vistas. At this end of the playa, there is very little beach use. To the immediate right of the house is a bird/marine wildlife sanctuary with three miles of secluded beach to enjoy . We reside at the very end of the road, which keeps road noise to a bare minimum and ensures maximum enjoyment.

What a delightful and secluded property. The penultimate property along this spit of land is a breeze to get to once you have figured out where all the major pot-holes are in the final three mile stretch from the main road. Most of the other houses in the sub-division were unoccupied adding to the privacy you feel. But the security staff are clearly available if needed. Also Guy and Shannon were very responsive to any and all issues that arose. Please remember that you are in Mexico where the 'manana' attitude is part of the ambience. We did have three power outages while there, but they were all resolved relatively quickly, with only minor inconvenience.
The Calimax supermarket at the turn off from Route 2 is 9 miles from the house and has everything you will need including excellent fresh vegetables, fruit and meat. They don't speak English but who needs that in a supermarket?
The Bufadora is a 'must see', but make sure you are there at least half an hour before high tide. If this is before 10am you will have the place to yourself as the tourists from the cruise ships will still be recovering from their disco dancing the night before! After 10am the tourist shops start to open and the whole atmosphere will change. As always lots of souvenirs for sale, but you can find some good bargains if you know what you are looking for and are ready to negotiate. Let them know you are not with the ships.
Thanks again Shannon and Guy for letting us stay at your beautiful home - we had a blast!
We are delighted that you and your family had a wonderful time! We are gratified by your kind words; our beach house is a family home, not your typical shabby beach rental...and we love sharing it with people who know and appreciate the difference.
Thanks again for your kind words of praise...we hope to host you and your family again, soon!

Beautiful beach house!
We have stayed at several homes in Punta Banda, but this one is by far the best for us! Well equipped kitchen, bathrooms and living area. The house was comfortable and each room had a great view and a king size bed. Bathrooms were clean and upgraded. The beach was clean and we had it all to ourselves. We appreciated Guy and Shannon’s hospitality and would love to return!
Claudia- Thanks so very much for your kind words. We love sharing our Little Slice of Heaven with folks like you! We are glad that you and your family appreciate the special nature of the area and can look past some of the quirks that come with living or vacationing in rural Mexico. your use of the LED cork lights to provide illumination during the power-outage makes us smile every time we think of it!
Know that you, your family and friends will always be welcome to return; we hope to share Pedazo de Cielo with you again, soon!

Beautiful house with incredible view
The house was perfect for 10 of us. There was plenty of room, enough beds, towels, pillows, etc. They also have all the amenities to cook in - a great grill, stove, and all kinds of seasoning, etc.
We did run into a few ants in the upstairs bedroom, but it's on the beach so it wasn't any big deal.
Thank you Guy and Shannon! We appreciate your hospitality
Thanks for your kind words and for being such great guests. We value your opinion and appreciate your feedback about the ants. We are ever vigilant and use all conventional measures to keep them at bay.
Thanks again...we hope to host you and your friends again, soon.

Thanks so much for your comments. We are glad that you, your family and friends enjoyed your stay in our home. We love sharing our little slice of heaven with folks like you. We look forward to your next stay!

Awesome All Around! Exceptional Value For a Family
The place was everything as described! The location is perfect, on the beach and steps away from a great preserve trail! There were 6 of us and there is no question the place could accommodate more as advertised. The house was stocked with plenty of towels and necessities for our stay and fire wood bundles are just down the road. Simply put when we come back we will be staying here. The people in the area are friendly and helpful. Guy and Shannon's recommendations on places to eat and things to see and do are a must, best tamales ever! Waves were perfect for surfing and the fishing was incredible, caught over 200 sport fish in 6 hours! We went for morning and late afternoon jogs on the beach and the sea shell hunting is a must. Really appreciated Guy and Shannon checking in via email from time to time to make sure our stay was going well. You may find other accommodations in the area but there isn't one we would have rather stayed at! We enjoyed gathering on the back patio for breakfast and coffee and then winding down by the fire pit in the evenings. I would say if you stay here and don't like the accommodations and location then Vacation Home Rentals aren't for you! Thank You Guy and Shannon
Jeff- thanks for being a great guest! We are humbled by your words and great review. We love sharing our dream with other who appreciate how wonderful and peaceful it is at the end of the spit.
We hope to see you again, soon!
Shannon and Guy
