About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Casita Del Mar consists of two one bedroom one bath beautifully designed casitas. which have been skillfully created in a Mexican tile motif by local craftsmen.
Wake up in the morning to sounds of the waves and a beautiful view of sunrise! We are on the beach and every room has a water view!
Paddle the 2 person Kayak off the shore and maybe even catch breakfast! There is no fee for the Kayak but bring your own fishing gear!
We provide satelite TV and DSL (broadband) internet in the Vista Casita so that you can keep in contact with friends and family at home! For those who would like to get away from the TV and maybe the 'other world' for a vacation - the Playa Casita offers you a hammock, larger library and TV with a DVD player as well as a hard wired DSL connection.
There is a queen size bed as well as a queen size convertable bed in the living room area all of which together can comfortably accomodate up to 4 persons. An armoire is located in the bedroom to fill up with all of the clothes you will not be wearing!
The kitchen and living room are combined for a more spacious feeling. You will have all the amenaties of a full kitchen including a stovetop, portable oven and full refrigerator and necessities such as a coffee maker and margarita blender! You will also find a microwave oven, toaster and lots of utensils. We also provide a hair dryer and beach towels so that you will not have to pack as much for the flight. The marine themed tiled bath has both a shower and tub a mirrored sink and vanity.
The balcony/patio was designed to take full advantage of a comfortable living style that we enjoy here in southern Baja. Padded lounge chairs will await you. There is roughly 900 sq feet of covered indoor/outdoor living area plus a very large patio! You will find this to be very spacious as compared to most other places you considered renting!
As a guest of ours the following amenaties are available to you: a large private area of the sandy beach plus the use of a two person kayak and paddles.
The view from the front of your casita is just spectacular! In the winter months Humpback and Gray whales pass by enjoying the warmer waters. You can expect some or all of numerous varities of colorful fish, manta rays and porpoise. There is fishing from our beach in front or you can go after the big guys including marlin,sailfish,wahoo, and dorado-(mahi mahi) by chartering a boat. We can help make arraingements for you!
During windsurfing/kiting season (nov-feb) some gear is available to rent in Los Barriles or you can take a kiting lesson at North Beach. We can help you with this too!
There are many other activities in our area that we can help you access or you can just enjoy a relaxful and peaceful vacation! You will be equiped for that just by staying with us at Casita Del Mar!
The casita is on the property of the homeowner yet is very private.It consists of the middle and bottom levels as seen in this picture and extends from one side of the property to the other. The upper level is our home.
This is a truly special place where the rhythm of waves becomes the background music of your vacation! We hope to be able to share it with you!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Tim & Anne Mealiffe Builders and Owners

Why the Owner Chose Buena Vista, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
Anne and I fell in love with Buena Vista & Los Barriles during our first visits 20+ years ago. Now, looking back, we feel even more fortunate to have found such a special place! Our first residence was in Los Barriles. Then in 1998 we had the chance to buy a spectacular lot on the beach in Buena Vista! Seven years later, after selling whatever possible, we jumped into building our dream house Casa del Mar and two casitas, Casitas del Mar. The property was only used by our family until 3 years ago when we opened up to renting the casitas. I first found this area while exploring for a really good windsurfing place that had warm water and lots of sunshine in the winter! A few years later Anne joined me and we bought our first lot. After moving to the beach we found lots of other interests from kayaking and snorkeling in front to deep sea fishing and protecting turtle nests. Our beach is very wide and, except for times when the winds pick up, is very safe. From April thru October it is more like a big lake! We hope you will come to discover it yourselves!

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We offer some services that others don't such as free calling to the USA & Canada, kayak and beach towels plus hard wired internet access at no additional charge. The upper casita has a 900 sq ft deck and the lower a large lawn area. We are in a residential area that appeals to some who want a more restful,or perhaps romantic vacation. Our beach is all sand!
