About the property

Location, location, location, 1750 sq ft casa on 65 ft of beachfront on 1/3 acre

Casa de Playa Los Cerritos is the only single family beachfront home on popular Playa Los Cerritos beach. With ocean views from every room, the casa sleeps 6 comfortably in the 2 large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets with king size beds in each room. One of the rooms also has a queen bed and there is a sofa bed in the living room. Both bedrooms have large sliding glass doors facing the ocean with their own covered patios. In the living room, there is a full length stacked sliding glass door facing the ocean to enjoy true indoor and outdoor living.

Swim in the ocean right out front or walk 5 minutes north along the sand to the famous Playa Los Cerritos surf point. This wide sandy beach is the only safe swimming and surfing beach in all of Baja Sur on the Pacific ocean side. It is located 45 minutes drive North of Cabo San Lucas in the town of El Pescadero which is 6 miles south of Todos Santos. It is a 70-minute drive from the Cabo Airport via the new Cabo to Todos Santos toll road (cut the drive by ~35 minutes) or a 60-minute drive from the La Paz (LAP) airport. Keep in mind the toll road from the airport bypasses Cabo so if you want to stop at Costco or Walmart you should follow directions to Cabo and avoid the Todos Santos toll road.

Ocean views from every room. The casa is the closest single family oceanfront home to the surf point of famous Playa Los Cerritos. While at the beach enjoy surf lessons (surfboards and wetsuits available for rent), boogie boarding, body surfing, stand up paddle, massages and food and drinks at the Cerritos Beach Club, an open-air beachfront palapa restaurant with tables on the sand service. Whale watching is very popular during the November to April migration season. Casa is equipped with beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas and boogie boards for our guests enjoyment.

The casa was designed to conserve energy as it is off grid and runs on solar. There are no TV's or video players by design, however, feel free to bring your own laptop or iPad to watch movies, TV shows, news, etc., utilizing the casa wifi. Plenty of excellent restaurants nearby in El Pescadero or a 10-minute drive north to Todos Santos. Baja Beans a few minutes away offers excellent coffee drinks and the new Herba Buena restaurant in El Pescadero offers excellent farm to table food.

Once booked guests gain access to hospitality information including driving directions, access instructions, recommended restaurants, laundromat, fresh organic produce, grocery stores and where to book an outdoor adventure such as a whale watching boat tour, mountain biking, and snorkeling among other outings.

The casa sits on a 1/3 acre lot; 60 feet ocean front by 180 feet. There are 1750 square feet of indoor living space with large oceanside patios covered by Palo de arco providing plenty of shade. Relax in the hammock on the patio and watch the sunset with your beverage of choice. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils for those that choose to eat in. In addition, there is a coffee maker, blender, and toaster.

It is recommended you rent a car to drive from the airport to the casa as well as to explore other areas like Todos Santos to enjoy some of the very good restaurants, shops and art galleries. Best to not drive at night as animals like the warmth of the highway. Most of the highway from the Cabo airport and Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos is four lanes now making the drive up the pacific coast safe, pleasant and providing spectacular views of the pacific ocean.

About LeeAnn

Grew up in Huntington Beach, CA. Live in Bay Area, CA. Enjoy traveling and going to Baja and love to share our casa with vacationers. Land purchased in 2004, casa built in 2009.

LeeAnn purchased this house in 2004

Why LeeAnn chose El Pescadero

Casa is on the beach and is great for families or couples to spend quality time going on morning beach walks, swimming, boogie boarding, body surfing, surfing, SUP, etc. All water sports equipment is available to rent on the beach. Great restaurants nearby. Unwind and enjoy listening to the waves lull you to sleep.

This beach reminds me of the area where I grew up; Huntington Beach and Newport Beach in Orange County in Southern California. Long wide white sandy beach and waves that don't crash on your head but one can actually swim in the ocean and go boogie boarding, surfing, body surfing etc. Great for all ages.

What makes this house unique

Walk right out front to swim or surf or sit in the sun with an umbrella or read or... Sunsets are beautiful. Morning and sunset beachwalks are most enjoyable. Get away from it all. Whale watching season is the can see the whales breaching from the living room.

Surfing, boogie boarding, body surfing, SUP, fishing right out front your door.

Whale watching, bocce ball, surfing, surf lessons, SUP, boogie boarding, body surfing, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, shore fishing, panga fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, swim with whale sharks, ATV off-roading, golfing 40 minutes south in Cabo.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Lee Ann,

You were next on my list for this morning...we launched back into life here at full speed.

Our trip to baja was nothing short of totally amazing...your house was the perfect retreat for our family who needed to relax and enjoy eachother. My husband started an engineering consulting business three years ago which has turned out to be very successful but very time and energy consuming. It has been three years since we took a vaction without him taking calls and emails. I can truly say the phone and computer never turned on in great!

The house is architecturally beautiful...simple elegance and very functional. The ocean view is stunning...we were in awe every morning and so very grateful for the beautiful Pacific and the amazing sand. We really didn't do much besides hang out together in front of the house on the beach and swim, boogie and surf. The water was amazing! Our kids swam for 7 straight days and nights in the ocean in front of your house and there was never any problem with currents. One day we did take a drive to La Paz and went snorkeling in the little bays and one day we shopped in Todos Santos for a few hours and had lunch.

The house was very well stocked...the only thing I could not find was a pan to bake Matt a cake for his birthday...not a big deal but you do have a lemon cake mix and frosting in your pantry! The water and solar worked fine.

Thank you so much for opening up your beach house to us. We are so grateful to have had such a perfect week in your beautiful home. We hope it will be available to us in the future as we would definately return if it was. Please feel free to call or email if you have any other questions or concerns.

Perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Playa Los Cerritos Beachfront home and will definitely return. Unparalleled access to Cerritos Beach, and this house provides privacy that other homes do not. Beds were comfy and linens crisp and white. Panaromic views of the bay from the family room.

A great spot for a fun and active vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and comfortable and in a fabulous location. Everything is as described, only better. Caretaker Tony was always available, and he arranged for a wonderful meal prepared for us and some friends who were also in the area - the best meal of the vacation, complete with beach bonfire. We did hiking, mountain biking, surfing, shopping, and just hanging on the beach. We hope to come back!

Our favorite getaway

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to review this home, because I wish it could be our own little secret getaway. Cerritos Beach is amazing and this home is a perfect location to enjoy your beach vacation. Great location for surf, beach, sand and fun. Close to amazing food in Todos Santos, Pescadero and even local Cerritos. We have been coming here for years, and every year appreciate and love it more. Enjoy breakfast in Todos Santos, especially Café Felix and La Esquina. or Dinner at Free Souls, Art and Beer, Hierbabuena, or a local taco shop on the side of the highway. Laying in the hammock watching the sunset is a favorite or walking along the beach. This is by far the best place to stay on Cerritos Beach. Thank you LeeAnn for having us stay in your home!

The Casa de Playa Los Cerritos was the perfect spot for our vacation. The house is really well thought out. Nothing fancy, but clean, beds were super comfy, plenty of space, washer and dryer a huge bonus, and the slider that opens up to the beach is really cool. Kitchen was clean and well stocked. The patio on the beach is so nice, the hammocks, tables and fire-pit all perfect. Really nice.

Tony the caretaker was awesome. Our first night there the refrigerator broke and I notified Tony first thing in the morning, he came over to try and fix it and within a half hour said he had spoken to the owner and that he would have a new fridge in by the end of the day. Well not four hours later, the old one was gone and new one was installed. In the meantime, he went and brought a cooler and bags of ice to keep our food and beverages cold. We also got to know him a bit better and found out he is the bartender at a restaurant called Hierbabuena. HIGHLY recommend. We went there twice and it was unbelievable. Food in general was all amazing. Free Souls, Miguels, an a wine and tapas place in Todos Santos - across from bank next to Hotel California. All of them we highly recommend. Oh and if you want an awesome smoothie and peppermint peanut butter bliss balls, head over to PuraVIda. Super cool market that sells all things healthy!

The Mexican people in this area are some of the nicest, hardest working people we have ever encountered. And all the ex-pats were very nice as well. My only con I would say is I wish there was recycling and less noticeable trash. Not in the house but the area in general. In and around the "nicer" boutique" properties there is no sign but everywhere else there is so much plastic used and no recycling! It isn't the fault of any one person, it's probably more of a cultural thing but it made me realize even more how important it is so we can keep places like this clean so it can be enjoyed for a long time.

It was a fabulous week!

So relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a more perfect stay! We are actually sad we did not book this house for more days. My husband and I have not felt this relaxed in years. Thank you so much Leann for letting us stay in your slice of paradise. We will definitely be coming back again. Tony was wonderful but we honestly did not need him simply because the house had everything. If you are looking for quiet, beautiful and relaxing, this is your place.
