Property description

Step away from the pressures of everyday life and connect with the rhythm of the sea!

Casita de Lunes, designed by renowned Mexican architect Carlos Montero, is the perfect space for indoor/outdoor living. The livingroom, diningroom and master bedroom/bath open directly onto the huge flagstone patio which is steps away from the sandy beach of the Sea of Cortez. The king size bed of the master bedroom looks directly to the sea. The two guest rooms open to a protected courtyard sanctuary. Each guest room contains a queen and a twin bed and share a spacious jack 'n jill bath with 2 sinks and a shower. There is also a courtyard powder room and 2 outdoor showers for rinsing off after a swim.

Maybe you've wondered about those funny domes on the roof of the house? They are designed to increase the ventilation in the house by drawing the warm air up and out through a clever chimney-type system. The cross ventilation is excellent and generally there is an ocean breeze which keeps the house cool and comfortable in all but the hottest summer days. We also have several fans in the house which may be arranged to best advantage when needed but please note: we do not have air conditioning.

Casita de Lunes is located on the stretch of beach known as 'roosterfish alley' in a new, sparsely populated gated community. The village of La Ribera is 10 minutes away by car and Los Barriles, with it's many shops and restaurants, is 30 minutes away.

Baja California Sur is a peninsula separated from mainland Mexico by the Sea of Cortez. This gives it a distinctive 'island' feel. Baja is often called 'the other Mexico'. Our home is located near the tip of the peninsula, on the Sea of Cortez side (also known as the east cape). We are a one hour drive north from the Los Cabos International Airport and far removed from the hussle and glitz of Cabo San Lucas.

This is where the white sand desert meets the unbelievable aqua-marine blue of the ocean. John Stienbeck wrote about the teaming marine life here in his famous work 'Log From The Sea Of Cortez'. Imagine miles of sandy beach where turtles nest. Imagine an endless sea perfect for swimming. Imagine fish jumping, frigit birds soaring, pelicans feeding. Walk the beach fly fishing or casting for rooster fish, sierra and dorado. Use the kyaks provided or hire a local guide and ponga from nearby La Ribera for a day on the sea. In winter, this coast is internationally acclaimed for it's windsurfing. The coral reef of nearby Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling to be found anywhere in the world. This is a place where you could pass days marveling at nature and never stray more than a few steps from the house... or have grand adventures you'll never forget!

The house deliberately lacks television, DVD's and 21st century entertainment. (Visitors never seem to miss these things one bit!) Cell phone and internet are provided as is bottled water for drinking (we don't recommend drinking the tap water). Our caretaker and amigo, Manolo, will be at your service for anything you need and our housekeeper, Lorena, is available to cook for you when you want a real 'night off'! The house is fully equipped with linens, towels, utensils, cookware, etc.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Our primary residence is Taos, N.M. where we have both been full time ski instructors at Taos Ski Valley most of our adult lives. We love the mountains, the sea, our animals and family, and traveling.

Why the Owner Chose La Ribera, B.C.S., Mexico:
Rick traveled the Baja peninsula from California to Cabo San Lucas via motorcycle for the first time in 1968, before the highway was completed. Teri hitch-hiked and took express bus to Los Cabos in 1974 when San Lucas was just a tiny fishing village. Rick bought a lot at Lighthouse Point Estates in 1999 after camping on the very spot and risked building before any other homes existed there. We enjoyed many solitary years being the only house for miles around and now appreciate the opportunity to share our bit of paradise with the rest of the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casita de Lunes is the ultimate place to unplug. We almost literally roll out of bed in the morning and into the sea for a swim, then a long walk on the beach. Our days are spent swimming, walking, kayaking, reading, marveling at the wonders of nature and feasting on fresh fish, orange juice and avocados, then winding down with fresh lime margaritas while watching the sunset. This is our version of paradise and we think you'll agree. !!!REALLY!!! We know everyone says this but this is TRUE!!!
