Property description

El Encanto is an artful, luxury view home with generous patios and private landscaped grounds. We offer three charming suites—ideal for families or multiple couples. See other listings for individual suites.

Art is a central theme, with folkart collected over years of Mexico travel, plus contemporary nature-inspired works, and whimsical touches that will surprise and delight. An eclectic mix of handcrafted furniture, traditional wood windows, and oriental carpets throughout convey an intimate timeless feel. Many people have said that it is like living in one of Diane's paintings.

Comfort-designed for southern Baja's famously mild climate, rooms spill out onto generous covered patios, sheltered from stiff winter nortes and open to the gentle breezes of summer. Private walled gardens put some of Baja's showiest natives on display, complemented by desert-adapted plants from throughout the world. Flowers attractive to hummingbirds and butterflies, plus birdbaths and feeders, keep the gardens lively!

Our home is close to beach, restaurants, dive center and other local services—all in easy walking distance, and our English speaking property managers will assure your best vacation ever. They can help you arrange massage, diving, kayaking, fishing trips, etc.

This house is truly a labor of love. See more details on our website (link below). We think you'll be delighted!
