Overview

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 Baja California Sur

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 best...you 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 baja...so 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.

Amazing House, Location, and Nearby Sightseeing!

  • 5 of 5

Wow. Just returned from 3 nights at this gem of a beach house (amazing!), before traveling on to meet our friends in San Jose Del Cabo. If you are interested in staying in this area of Baja/Cabo, my girlfriend and I recommend this place to the max. This place is spotless, charming, private, with unmatched views, and proximity to all local sites (Art&Beer, Baja Beans, Pescadero, San Jose...) It's a 5 min beach walk to Cerriotos surf bar, the name of which escapes me now after the tequila drinks... And a 2 min walk to a little hotel bar 100-yards away, with a poolside bar -ask for Pedro. We spent our days exploring area towns, and would wander back to the house to enjoy the epic sunsets and a private evening bonfire of drift wood. After renting this house blindly off VRBO, we later realized how lucky we were, as there is nothing else like it in the area. You have some hotels of mixed quality, some houses set back from the beach, and some condo type options - but this is the ONLY open-air, open-floorplan, full-amenity house ON THE BEACH. If you rent this, you have scored. Safe, quiet, clean. We slept with the doors and windows open, listening to the surf. Have stayed many nice places, this one gets it just right, both rustic and refined, perfectly complimenting why you are in Cerritos in the first place. We will definitely come back. Thank you, LeeAnn and your friendly caretakers.

Beautiful, private, and exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

This really is the only private house on the beach. It's relaxing, peaceful, and gorgeous. There are top notch restaurants about 15 minutes away, but you could easily never leave your own remote little utopia if you didn't want to. It was the perfect place to spend our 5th anniversary and we hope to return for our 10th!

Cool location, comfy and clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March of 2017 for four nights: two moms with two kids each, all between the ages of 10 and 12. There is a master suite with a king bed and a queen-sized convertible daybed. A queen in the other bedroom, and the sofa has a full-sized pullout. So there was plenty of room for each mom to have her own bed and the kids were still happy! Bedding was really comfy, the hammocks were perfect, and the kitchen supplies were ample. We took surfing lessons on Playa Cerritos, just a walk down the sand to the action. When we weren't down the beach the kids tried body surfing with the provided boogie boards right out front. Water is cold in March, though! We spotted California quails, hummingbirds and hooded orioles in the yard, which was a fun surprise. Mario the caretaker was readily on call for driving directions to Punta Lobos, dinner recommendations, and emergency toilet paper refills!

Owner's Response: I'm happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Playa Los Cerritos. Just wanted to correct the bed sizes you commented on so future guests don't get confused; there is a king bed and a queen bed in one ensuite and a king bed (not a queen per your review) in the other ensuite. Glad Mauricio took care of you. There is also a fold out queen sofa bed in the living area. For future guests, in addition to any recommendations from Mauricio, the hospitality information emailed to every guest includes restaurant recommendations among other information and a map to find most anything in the area.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was really lovely- so close to the point break but far enough away that you had privacy. Amazing views and great windows that fully opened to the outside. I would recommend a few more beach and bath towels and a key for the backdoor so that we didn't always have to lock up the front and walk to the back. Spacious and airy we totally enjoyed our stay. Hope to return!

Owner's Response: Hi Allison, Glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa de Playa Los Cerritos. Very unusual to have too few towels and I apologize for the inconvenience. Hopefully, this won't occur again but if it does a call to the caretaker can solve this. I have communicated to our cleaners and caretaker to ensure plenty of beach and bath towels are provided prior to each guests arrival. There is a key for both the front and back door. I have reminded my caretaker to label the keys so it is clear what key goes to what door. I apologize if you were not provided with one of the keys. Regards, LeeAnn
