Welcome to the 'Perfect Escape' - Combining the rugged beauty of Baja Sur and the Sea of Cortez - famous CONCEPTION BAY.
PRIVACY - SECURITY - TRANQUILITY - SPECTACULAR LAGOON VIEWS
This relaxing beachfront villa has panoramic views of the spectacular Bay of Conception. Private and peaceful, the days go by at a lazy, relaxing pace. If your dream vacation means tranquility with islands and hidden beaches all to yourself, then you have found it. Come... relax and find paradise in Coyote Bay.
Porpoise and whales are frequent sightings from the large 2500 sq ft seaside patio. Marine birds live here in large numbers. Snorkel, swim, and kayak in the clear, warm waters adjoining the villa. Treasure hunt for hours while strolling the sugar sand beaches. The Cortez offers great deep-sea fishing & diving, while schools of colorful fish roam the adjacent reefs for your snorkeling pleasure. There is a refreshing beach shower after a swim in the bay. Kayaks, boats, and floats are available for rent nearby. Explore pristine, unihabited islands and bays with beautiful sandy beaches.
Osprey making their morning catches are a thrill to watch from the seaside patio, as are the many pods of porpoise making their way through the bay. Schools of fish swim by right next to the seawall and handy steps take you to the sandy beach in front. Hike from the villa to the surrounding mountains and living desert...wildlife abounds and bighorn sheep are often seen on the rugged cliffs of the surrounding mountains.
5 delightful beach-side cafes are just a pleasant walk or drive for your dining pleasure...also take a scenic drive into the village only 17 miles away. Whether you're beach-combing, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing or just lazily gazing at a truly spectacular view, this is your perfect, stress-free home away from home. The house can accommodate a couple, a family, or a group.
The nearby village of Mulege (moo-la-hay) is a peaceful place of about 4000 friendly folk who offer very good markets, restaurants, and all services needed. Lots of colorful dances, festivals, music, fiestas, and a slow easy pace to enjoy them with your guests or new-found friends. Saturday nights are time for the traditional Serinadad pig roast with lively mariachi bands singing at your table. A great experience anytime is the guided tour to many nearby ancient cave paintings.

Patsi Hodges purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Patsi Hodges chose Mulegé
I have always loved Coyote Bay..and became good friends with the CasaCoyote owner from whom I eventually bought this beach home in 2009.The beauty of this tranquil bay is unrivaled anywhere in Baja Sur. I first met the previous owner when camping on Coyote Beach, and we became fast friends.
What makes this Villa unique
Think ...Paradise ..but without the serpent. Coyote Bay - tranquility and bay views you will find in Baja.

House & location were fantastic. Four of us enjoyed our two weeks. Friendly people and just a short walk to a store & two places to eat. Kayaking the bay was great. We enjoyed Mulege for shopping and eating. Fun was had by all!
Thanks so much for your nice review. So glad you enjoyed our little part if the world. Coyote Bay is truly a magical place
Beach all to yourself
This property was truly incredible. It was wide open and spacious with all the kitchen supplies one would need as well as all the beach toys (kayaks/paddle boards) one needs. The beach was incredibly quiet.
We woke with the sunrise, paddled, and then went hiking in the area.
Baja is cooler than many other places in Mexico. However, I challenge you to find a place more beautiful remote place to spend some time recharging and relaxing with friends and family.
I recommend this place to people who like to be off the beaten track, who like to have privacy and space, who like adventure and realize that another country IS NOT supposed to feel like home.
We went with another family who rented another beach house in Coyote Bay. This one was much grander and more spacious inside. The other had a great outdoor fireplace we were able to use.
I would highly recommend this property.
Perfect Mexico beach vacation
We were looking for a relaxing beach vacation away from our busy everyday lives, and this was the perfect place to relax. The house is huge, and was a great fit for my husband and two friends. But as much as we loved the house, which was clean and well outfitted,( even has a pool table), it was the outdoor space that will bring us back.
The patio is huge, with 4 comfy hammocks, 2 chaise lounges, 2 swing chairs, 2 large outdoor table sets, a gas BBQ, a wood BBQ and a fire pit with more chairs. To top things off, Coyote Bay feels like your own private place.
We kayaked and paddle boarded (2 each included w/ the house), fished and snorkeled every day. The highlight of our trip was paddleboarding with the 3 whale sharks.
When you visit make sure you try the restaurant in the center of the beach area at Santispak Beach -the garlic shrimp is amazing and the price reasonable. Breakfast and lunch was great, too.
Heads up, this property is off the grid, solar and propane power, which wasn't a problem at all with the 4 of us. Internet is spotty, due to the remote location, and no TV (bring some DVDs if you must have that kind of entertainment) or cell service. None of these were issues for us, we have never had a more relaxing, fun, special "unplugged" holiday. We highly recommend this property
An unforgetable holiday in Mexico (:
It's a wonderful beach vacation. We enjoyed our breakfast in a sunny place at the terrace with the nicest view we've ever had!!! Paddleboarding and seakayaking was a great experience for us. The waterworld is unique! The house is perfectly equipped. 200 meters away there is a kiosk that has even birthday candles :) on the first day we were greeted by dolphins. The best place for relaxation! It's a good feeling to come from snowshuffling to roast chicken with rested soul. Many thanks to the property managers P+L :)) we will come back! we = Volkmar, Heiki and Karolina from Germany
Amazing location, great property managers
For me this house had the perfect balance of privacy and beach access. When we return we will almost certainly stay in the same house because of that.
I can’t say enough great things about the property managers Patsi and Les. We flew in on Christmas day and because it was a holiday they didn’t know if grocery stores would be open. To make sure that we wouldn’t be without food they made us a casserole and stocked us up with a handful of food items just in case. That was very unexpected and incredibly thoughtful of them. They shared a wealth of great local information that was both interesting and helped guide our stay. During the week we had a couple of minor things come up, normal stuff, and they were very responsive and addressed them immediately.
One thing to note about the house. The master bedroom is very nice but it's entrance is separate from the main part of the house. This wasn't an issue for us but if you have small kids it might be something you'll need to consider.
There is a white dog that lives on the beach and we totally fell in love with her. On top of being very friendly she added to our sense of safety by barking any time there was activity around the house. She likes shrimp. Speaking of which, every couple of days a fisherman would come by selling fresh seafood. The prices are great and it's fresh, don't hesitate to buy some.
Random notes on the house:
- Wireless internet worked well, it was good to stay connected to family back home
- Cable/satellite TV wasn't working, who cares though. who goes to Baja to watch TV
- There is a blu-ray player and a handful of movies
- Lots of books, a number of good books on Baja
- All major areas of the house were clean
A few thoughts on the area:
- The food at Bertha's is very good and it's very close to the house. Great atmosphere.
- For a the best hamburger in the area, visit Olivia at Playa Buenaventura, Mark & Olivia's Bar/Restaurant
Location, Location, Location!!
The photos on the listing site represent the exterior patio areas and beautiful bay accurately. We spent most of our time outside so we enjoyed the seating and dining options. The home itself was marginal; mostly because the kitchen and bathrooms were dirty and the solar alone was not adequate to power the home; even though we were very conservative. We stayed 1 week and had to reset the system 3 different mornings after making a pot of coffee. We could not figure out the satellite tv, nor could the managers, and the internet worked only at times. There is no cell service. We read, walked, swam and kayaked so it was generally fine for us (2 adult couples). The weather was grand so we were able to enjoy the outdoors. The property could use a lot of TLC and a good cleaning then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others. The location is spectacular.
It always amazes me that people do not mention a problem when we walk through every room on check in. I would be more than happy to have additional cleaning done or refund the fee if they would just say something during check-in or at least during the stay as they find things they are not happy about. I can do nothing for them after they are gone.
It is also hard to come from an over abundance of services to an off the grid home and expect to live the same way. We do not have power the same as most. We rely completely on solar power to charge our batteries. We continue to add to our battery bank and believe we will not have problems in the future. We now have a generator to take over if the battery power fails.
We do not have TV here but DVD's and a player. We do not have cell service here on the beaches but if you have Skype you can use that. We do have satellite internet service and are at the mercy of the service provider and the weather as to that service. Unually, the mornings give us good internet. Those of us who live here believe it's worth having to deal with a few small inconveniences to be able to walk out our doors 60 steps into the beautiful Bay of Conception. The wonder of this entire area more than make up for any thing we lack in the way of extras.
Beachcombing and hiking enjoyment, guided fishing and ancient cave painting tours can be arranged, plus free village cultural festivals and events in nearby village. So many other monthly events it is impossible to list all. Or just sit back and relax on our scenic waterfront patio...or invite some new friends over for a barbeque. Currently we have two single-person kayaks and two stand up paddle boards available free of charge. We can arrange other kayak rentals for you if desired.
