About the Property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3: no more than 2 adults)

This is a beach-front studio condominium located in Condominios Pilar in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. The condo is absolutely darling! Everything is brand new - a little mexican casita! Although it has two fold out futons, it is really too small for 4 people - no privacy and too much wear and tear on the condo. Will only rent to a couple/2 adults or a couple with small child or one adult with two small kids.

There is a large bathroom/dressing area, a huge kitchen, and a large living area with 2 very nice fold-down futon couches. Back wall is all glass and opens onto a covered patio that faces the beach. 20 yards of beautiful green grass separate you from the beach. Two kayaks are included in the rental. We prefer weekly or long term renters. Rental fees are as follows:
Nightly: $60.00
Weekly: $420.00
Monthly: $1680.00
Cleaning Fee: $75.00

Longer rental prices are negotiable.

This is a great deal. Daily rental for 2 sea kayaks would cost more than our daily condo rental fee!

Car: Necessary

Condominios Pilar is located on beautiful San Francisco Beach/Bay about 3-4 KM outside of San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. It abutts a large, government protected estuary which offers hours of kayaking and bird watching. The property itself was built in the early 1970's and reflects the charm and ambiance of vintage Mexico - mature landscaping and lovely white buildings with red tile roofs. San Francisco bay is free of currents and is an ideal place for swimming and kayaking. You can kayak with the dolphin every day - right off shore! Shelling is also a daily must, with shells changing with the season. San Carlos itself is a charming small town with plenty of small restaurants and watering holes. Shopping is also exceptional for such a small town. Above all, it is very safe - so no worries regarding walking around day or night. It is a relatively undiscovered stretch of sand in Mexico - enjoy it before it becomes discovered!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

Why the Owner Chose San Carlos, Son., Mexico:
San Carlos is a wonderful, low-key vacation destination. It is a beautiful small town with 2 lovely long beaches. It is quiet, safe, and one of our favorite places in Mexico. It is located about 3.5 hours south of Nogales. The road down in 4 lane and very safe.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Condominios Pilar is located on San Francisco Beach, about 2 miles before you reach town. You can walk to town on the beach. The bay is full of dolphin. It is a morning ritual to sea kayak with them as they swim by.
