About Barbara Weidman-Harden

From Left to Right;

Grandma Joan - 91yrs. young, Lucero - 21, Barb - 56, Maria - 19, and Charlie -75.

We live in Aromas CA, a small country town between San Jose and Monterey CA. A beautiful spot. We own our own HVAC business and pretty much work 24/7 whether we are in the States or in MX. It's pretty awesome to be working on my computer overlooking the Sea of Cortez!

Barbara Weidman-Harden purchased this house in 2004

Why Barbara Weidman-Harden chose Baja California Sur

Charlie has vacationed, built and owned a house back in the 80's. He had always wanted to come back to this 'piece of paradise'. In 2004, this opportunity arose and we snatched it up! As soon as I walked towards the front doors of the house and could see right through to the Sea of Cortez I knew we had something special.........We've never regretting it! It is an amazing quaint area, friendly people and neighbors with stunning views.

What makes this house unique

Being located on the beach is so special! Also, we are located 100 yds. away from Spa Buena Vista Hotel with bar, restaurant as well as fishing boats and kayaks to rent.

Swimming, snorkeling, atv's, wind surfing and long walks on a great sandy beach is vacationing for me. During your stay you may also see nesting sea turtles, migrating whales or a friendly donkey strolling on the beach in the late afternoon. It is an amazing site!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We want to say what a lovely 10-days we had here at Casa Harden. you provided more than we even thought we needed. We were thrilled to have use of the life jackets and all the ocean and pool toys.

Your place was very comfortable and has such a peaceful, inviting feeling.

I look forward to returning here again!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the outdoor shower. We used the kayak, snorkeling equipment, and quad and had so much fun. The ocean and swimming pool were the best of both worlds. Wonderful local cuisine and sight seeing tours. Would we go back ... Definitely!!!

The house was perfect. Right on the beach although a little windy. We were happy we had the sitting

  • 5 of 5

To be honest, the house could use a really deep clean. Most of the dishes seemed to be put away dirty or just not washed. Towels were old and we weren't sure if they had been washed. Our bed had a good amount of dust and hair around the bed skirt, kind of disgusting. The loft was not some place you could hang out. Dirty and dead cockroaches. Overall the location was nice it's just needs some cleaning. Thank you

Fantastic Week at Casa Harden

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time spending a week at this incredible home. Your experience starts with meeting Josafina. She ensures all is well to start your vacation and is accessible if you have any questions. Home has everything you need after a quick stop at the grocery store in town. Even an extra freezer in the garage to freeze you catch if you go fishing. The sunrise each morning is priceless. Hotel Buena Vista is next door. Great place to end the day with a daily Happy Hour in the bar. Wi Fi works great at the house. Communication leading up to the visit is quick you have any questions.

The only regret was I did not stay two weeks.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Harden last week and would highly recommend it to all. The house was very clean and was the perfect size and layout for me, my husband and our three kids as 2 of the bedrooms with shared bath are on one side of the house and the third bedroom has a half bath with adjacent outdoor private, shower on the other side of the house. We felt very safe and at ease as Spa Buena Vista is a quiet community with many home owners who look out for each other. Honestly, this whole area of Baja feels safe and the locals are friendly and helpful. We also opted to pay for access to the resort pool two houses down, which was well worth it because of the refreshing pool, jacuzzi and swim up bar, which served yummy and affordable food and drinks. We were able to do a lot of amazing things that were all within an hour's drive during our one week stay. We went snorkeling at Cabo Pulmo, swam with the dolphins in San Jose del Cabo and played in the waterfalls in the desert near Santiago. We also spent a lot of time at the beach right in front of the house, swimming, snorkeling and fishing. Casa Harden is a wonderful place to stay with a charming palapa roof, beautiful courtyard and a huge tiled deck that overlooks the beach and makes for great star-gazing and sunrise watching opportunities. The owners and property manager are very helpful and responsive as well. Rent this home. You will not regret it!

great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at Casa Harden and we look forward to staying there again. The location was great and right on the beach! The house is right in between the two hotels in Spa so if you like to have a bar nearby there are 2. The house had all of the things we needed to have a comfortable stay as well as beach toys and even a kayak! The property manager was friendly and helpful. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
