The Jewel of Cabo Pulmo is a one-of-a-kind, hand-built and hand-crafted home that features beautiful Mexican tiles and bright colors throughout. It captures the free spirit of Mexico, and the laid-back comfort of Latin America.

This is a large, private property, located in the center of the small resort village of Cabo Pulmo, just steps away from the dive shop, the beach, and all the restaurants.

The nearest beach is a calm one, suitable for children and marvelous for a dip at the beginning or the end of the day. It is only a 2-minute walk from the house. There are numerous other beaches within a short drive north or south of Cabo Pulmo.

The house is surrounded by a half-acre garden that offers privacy, beautiful views and abundant birds and wildlife. A solid, 6 foot privacy fence encloses the house and garden.

There is internet at the house suitable for email and surfing the web, a great sound system, and a library of DVD's.

The best way to check availability is by dropping us an email. We'll reply as soon as possible! We're also available by phone. We'd love a chance to chat with you about the property, Cabo Pulmo, and Baja in general.

We welcome you to our one-of-a-kind gem, hidden away in a little corner of Mexico.

Cheers,
Scott & Janning Kennedy

P.S. A hearty 'thank you' to Bruce Lyon, who visited with his family in 2013, for the beautiful bird photos he allowed us to use!

This beautiful, half-acre property boasts a delightful garden of native & tropical plants; bird-watching is superb right from the porch. Restaurants & activity centers are 1 to 2 minutes walking distance. World-class deep sea fishing available outside the Marine Reserve, just a short drive away.

Cabo Pulmo is known for it's quiet, laid-back, relaxing lifestyle.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I both work in agriculture. He is involved with vegetable seed production and I with organic certification. We raised our family Monterey/Salinas area of California, and currently live and work in Chile.

Why the Owner Chose Cabo Pulmo, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
You have to see it to believe how special this place is. It is the most appealing, most comfortable place we've ever been. There's world-class surfing for my husband and a huge, beautiful, native garden for me. It's everything we could want. The house is both artful and designed for comfort. It's like living outdoors, only with all the comforts of a modern home. It's simply perfect.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We both love Mexico, especially the Baja, for its wonderful people, warm oceans and beautiful landscapes. When we crest the hill overlooking Cabo Pulmo we are looking down on our dream home. As we enter the property, we let go of pressures and stress, take a deep breath, and just relax. It is the perfect home: beautiful but unpretentious, warm, unique, and inviting. We love sitting on the porch and identifying birds and wildlife in the garden, and going up to the roof to watch the brilliant stars at night. We think you'll find it one of your favorite places on earth, and want to return again and again, just like we do.
