About Christine Mann

Here's us on the deck of the Casa! We are adventurers and lovers of the Baja life.

Christine Mann purchased this villa in 2003

Why Christine Mann chose El Sargento

There is no better view than the view from Casa Cantina Baja. There is nothing between you and the beach!

What makes this villa unique

Private, but yet right where the action is! The best of both worlds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had another great trip to Baja, Blake and I caught 5 dorado at Bahia de Sueno, golfed at the brand new Costa Baja course and swam with a whale shark: check out the 3 min video. We are going back at spring break.

Maison de bord de mer offrant une vue imprenable de la mer et des montagnes. Très spacieux il ne manque de rien pas même le vent. Nous avons eu un très beau séjour et nous espérons y revenir prochainement.

A Great House on the Sea of Cortez

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cantina is perched high up which makes for great views, but also a steep path down to the beach. The house itself is in great condition and very spacious. The owner just put in a building down by the beach for storage of kiting gear and other beach toys so there is no need to carry gear up and down the hill. As long as you don't mind the walk down to the beach it is a great place.

All you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Great layout, lots of room and magnificent views. Steep walk to the beach, especially back up, but can drive down the adjacent arroyo without any problem. Juan Carlos checked in daily to see if anything was needed. Plenty of parking for two boats. Plan to be back next year.

We would rent this property again.

  • 4 of 5

The measure of a good rental accommodation is whether it is worth a repeat visit, Casa Cantina meets that standard. The owner Christine was prompt with her response to our initial inquiry and subsequent questions, her man on the ground, caretaker, Juan Carlos, was very friendly and helpful. The location for kiters, bikers or paddlers is key.

Awesome House for one or two family stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been to La Ventana 3 times before always trying a new place to stay --- loved staying in Casa Cantina. Views are magical especially in the morning when the Sea of Cortez is calm. Huge amount of privacy. Nicely and simply appointed w/ lots of space for gear. Water, showers, Internet all fine.

Great for kiters as big wide beach an non-rocky launch options (did downwinders from up north a ways). Could do two families. Enjoyed the privacy and being on the prominent point, nothing but ocean below us. Juan Carlos was very helpful---he connected us w/ Berto to go fishing one day and we caught 4 huge jurel (yellowtail tuna).

I would highly recommend this property.
