About the property

House, 8 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 2-16)

If you’re looking for a beautiful villa in a five-star location, if you want a secluded getaway where you can wake to a glorious sunrise, relax on a beach that’s virtually your own and count shooting stars at the end of another perfect day, we have just the spot.

Casa Alvarado is nestled in a cove on the Sea of Cortez in the small resort community of Punta Pescadero, a 30-minute drive from Los Barriles.

The main house sleeps up to 12 people in four spacious bedrooms: two on the entry level and two down below with private entrances. On each level, one bedroom has a king bed and bath; the other has two double beds and bath.

Casa Alvarado also has two stand-alone casitas. Each one has a bath and four double beds, two on the entry level and two in the loft. This added accommodation makes our property ideal for reunions, corporate retreats or special family occasions.

From the main house, walk out to the patio for our million dollar view. Descend 20 steps to reach the pool, chaise lounges, ping-pong table and outdoor eating area. Descend 30 more and your toes are in the sand.

You’ll find everything you need in our well-appointed kitchen which has a large island with bar stool seating. And the indoor communal area feels even bigger thanks to our year-round outdoor living space. Being on the cove means that Casa Alvarado is protected from the north winds. So even in winter, it’s warm enough to sunbathe by the pool, read a book on the patio, swim in the ocean or enjoy margaritas at sunset.

Other activities include: ping-pong, snorkeling, shelling, scuba, paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. A three-minute walk to Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel adds horseshoes, tennis, basketball, a bar with wide-screen TV and restaurant meals.

Finally, to make your vacation even more enjoyable, we provide free daily housekeeping and property management. We will also help you arrange transportation, fishing excursions, day trips, cooking classes, catering, shopping, an authentic Mexican fiesta or ATV and scuba gear rental.

Find out more about Casa Alvarado! We’re excited to share our home with you and we’re committed to making your vacation a happy one.

Keywords: Private beachfront home with 2 casitas. Option to rent 2, 4 or 8 bedrooms, priced accordingly.

Why The Owner chose Baja California Sur

To us, vacationing in Punta Pescadero means leaving our hectic lives behind and taking time to appreciate the simple pleasures -- seeing rays leap from the ocean in the morning light; enjoying an ice-cold Pacifico beer and homemade tortilla chips at the bar of Punta Pescadero Paradise Hotel; kayaking or snorkeling in the clear, calm water of the cove; taking the family to taco nights in nearby El Cardonal; and watching the full moon rise out of the ocean. It also means spending time with the people who matter most in our lives. Casa Alvarado has so much sleeping space, we hope we can accommodate the people who matter most in yours, whether they be family, fishing buddies or old friends.

PERFECT family gathering place even with 18!

  • 5 of 5

While recovering from Achilles surgery, I had plenty of time to search the web for the right place to gather the family (18 total ranging from 1.5 to 72 years of age). Eventually I settled on Casa Alvarado, which wasn't just the "right" place, it was the "perfect" place. With six bedrooms each with its own bath and entrance, coming an going was easy. Better yet the pool (make sure you organize a game of pool volley ball using the beach ball), ping pong table, snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, sea turtle watching, and even puzzling (Casa Alvarado even has puzzle "platters" so you can remove them from the huge dining table) meant we could each do our thing or join in many group activities. Perhaps even better than our time at Casa Alvarado, Susan, one of the owners, has become good friend via the internet. Now we look forward to a return visit to Casa Alvarado and to meeting Susan.

THANKS for opening your home to us.

More incredible than we could have dreamed

  • 5 of 5

Incredible isn't a big enough word to describe Casa Alvarado. This place is simply amazing! The pictures do not do the home justice. I can honestly say I have never had such a comfortable, relaxing, and enjoyable vacation. The owners are wonderful and really have thought of everything needed to make the home feel like a home. All the conveniences are there....and so much more.

There were 12 of us during our 9 day stay...4 adults and 8 teenagers, and we never felt crowded....and certainly never bored. Between the snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, shell collecting, swimming, playing board & card games, doing puzzles, and simply relaxing there was something for every one....every day. We never even needed to leave the property. The snorkeling right outside your back door is so convenient. The water is clear and there were so many beautiful, colorful fish to see. We snorkeled for hours. The kids spent a lot of time in the kayaks tooling in and out of the rocks and just exploring the waters. We essentially had our own private beach.

Carlos & Griselda were amazing...and so nice. Carlos came by every day to check on us. He brought us bottled water if we were running low, bags of ice for our drinks, he scheduled our catered meals, fishing trips, cooking classes, etc. Griselda kept the home clean and OH MY GRACIOUS! her cooking is amazing. I highly recommend having her cater some (or all) of your meals. The price is so reasonable especially considering we always had left overs for the next day. Griselda taught us how to cook some amazing authentic Mexican dishes. We all had so much fun laughing and learning.

I can not say enough nice things about our stay at Casa Alvarado. Everything absolutely exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We were so sad to leave and are already talking about our next visit. We can't wait to come back.

Friend and Family Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully awesome time! Casa Alvarado was as beautiful as the pictures and videos showed. The teenagers and adults all had a blast kyaking, snorkeling paddle boarding, boogie boarding, swimming and riding the ATV's. We met and made friends with some home owners and other visitors. The weather was really hot some days, but still had a nice breeze to cool down. The water was great, although a little colder than I thought. We acclaimated to it quickly and it was a nice cool down from the sun. All the guys went deep sea fishing and had some bites from marlin and sharks. We saw rays and sea lions. I have never had so many things to do and see all in one place. We went to town quite often after conquering our fear of the unpaved roads, but that's what made it adventurous. Carlos was great and always there when we needed him. He is such a nice man. We ordered dinner from Griselda one evening and that was good too. I would order from her the first day as you really don't want to cook when you get there, you just want to take everything in and enjoy. The owner is super great in giving details of everything you need to know and following up. Read all info the owner gives ahead of time as it will help you greatly. Loved it!

Sun drenched days and margarita nights...

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alvarado is situated in a fabulous location. The views are stunning and offered from all levels of the property. What did I enjoy most about the stay? The beautiful pool? The cabana where filtered light creates a relaxed mood? The enormous patio where you can sit and watch the sun rise or oversee all the activities going on around you? The hammock for a lazy afternoon snooze? How you are only steps from the beach and beautiful sea life? It's too difficult to choose just one. If margaritas are your thing and you'd enjoy delicious guacamole, salsa and corn chips at sunset then don't hesitate to take advantage of the catering on offer. The spacious kitchen / dining / lounge area became a core "meeting" place for the 12 of us as we enjoyed this stunning property. Cool breezes were welcome throughout the house on warm days and the air conditioned casitas offered privacy from the main house. The house is well equipped and we didn't want for anything whether the urge was to frappe a cocktail or cook an omelette! Facilities are modern and great quality. The views are stunning and the ambience is relaxed and welcoming. All comforts are considered - read soft towels, comfortable beds, great bathrooms, relaxing sun lounges, snorkelling/paddling equipment, ample refrigeration and washing facilities. Bookshelves contain light reading should you want to switch off technology (not that you need to as wifi is offered throughout the property) Whilst we didn't take advantage of the fire pit I could imagine a evening spent around that after a fun day in the sun too. I thoroughly recommend you spend time at Casa Alvarado and look forward to a return trip myself. It was certainly worth the trek from Australia!

Baja Boda- A Million Stars!

  • 5 of 5

We feel so blessed to have discovered Casa Alvarado in the sea of Baja rentals. From the moment we began communicating with the amazing homeowners, we knew we had found the perfect location for our small family wedding. The whole planning process was totally seamless- they went above and beyond all of our expectations. We are eternally grateful for all the care, concern & energy the team devoted to making our wedding a wonderful success! Casa Alvarado is an gorgeous property in an absolutely stunning location- 1st step inside the living room is breathtaking-better than the pictures! Loved the decor-lots of white with gorgeous punches of vibrant patterns & colors. 18 guests (16 adults & 2 kids)- plenty of room for everyone! The house is fully stocked with everything you could think of or possibly want at a vacation house - all the comforts of a home. Oh man.. outside- Whales, birds, turquoise Sea of Cortez, sunrises, fish- it’s a natural paradise! We enjoyed perfect weather during our stay and the SUPs, scuba gear, and kayaks were in constant rotation. You can be as active or relaxed as you want- a destination to really unplug, recharge, & connect with one another.  When we told someone in Cabo where we had just gotten married he replied “That place is good for your soul!” YUP- Basically.  The property manager is a treasure of human being & the perfect ambassador for Casa Alvarado: so helpful in countless ways during the celebration and throughout our stay...a really kind soul. The homeowners & his enthusiasm about sharing their beautiful slice of the world with guests is infectious. His daughter is a fantastic chef who prepared the delicious wedding feast! The team did so much to help with all the details- decorating, bartending & Mariachi band etc! The Palo De Arco looked absolutely gorgeous with our decor hanging from it and we also took advantage of the awesome fire pit for our after-party. Used the recommended transportation service to and from SJD for some of our guests and also rented a car. Expecting the road to be so much worst than it turned out to be- a bumpy 30mins but beautiful drive. Don’t let the drive deter you from visiting-You can do it! Casa Alvarado is a very special place owned & operated by a group of very special people who are so invested in you enjoying your stay! We are so fortunate that your family shared your beautiful home with us for our wedding celebration and we look forward to coming back someday soon!

Couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

11 of us shared this lovely home - 5 couples and a single. The location is absolutely stunning and definitely worth the drive over the crazy, rough roads. We totally enjoyed the beach access and our ability to see whales and jumping mobula rays from the patio. It had everything we could possibly have needed from the well-appointed kitchen to all the water toys (kayaks, paddleboards, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear. And there were even water shoes and yoga mats! And, when one got tired of salt water, there was always the spotless swimming pool, as well as a good assortment of board games. Carlos, the property manager, was an absolute delight, as was his daughter, Griselda, who came in every day to clean. We appreciated Carlos' checking on us regularly and bringing us fresh bottled water every morning. It is a place to totally relax or be as active as one wants. The proximity to Los Barriles and smaller villages was all we needed as far as civilization is concerned. If you want a good breakfast or lunch close by, there is a tiny cafe at the little market in Las Tinas, less than two miles to the north. We are all thinking we should make this a yearly destination!
