Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Beautiful villa overlooking the Sea of Cortez (the sweeping 180 degree view is stunning) yet only five paved miles from delightful San Jose del Cabo. All the amenities are nearby; a little used, fine sand beach (the sea is close enough for you to hear the lull of the waves), restaurants, art galleries and entertainment...the best of both worlds...and only 30 minutes from the San Jose del Cabo (SJD) airport. It has has a wonderfully warm and comfortable feel about it (so people who have stayed there tell me) so much so that when they leave they feel that they have had a special stay indeed.

There is a barbecue (as well as a full kitchen) but if you don't want to cook and want to stay close to the house then there is a bare feet in the sand restaurant a two minute walk away. The beach goes on for miles and is a wonderful place for a stroll, or if a walk in the desert, and a climb up a nearby mountain is more your speed then that's there too.

Enjoy peace of mind knowing that you're having the time of your life while leaving a very tiny 'carbon footprint'...this villa is completely solar-powered using an advanced, state-of-the-art solar energy system. It is the height of 'guilt-free' luxury. Air conditioning is not available during the months of July/August and September.

The house, and its surroundings, is both unique and charming...you will have a memorable stay.

Keywords: Quiet, private, secure.

About The Owner

I am a photographer/writer. I designed the house. It is the perfect place to write and relax; serene, quiet, with a deserted beach to walk on nearby. The 180 degree view of the Sea of Cortez is magical...with whales visible in the season. I encourage you to spend time at my house...you'll love it.

The Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why The Owner chose Baja California Sur

I chose the location for my house so as to have the amenities of a town nearby but also the peace and quiet of being somewhat removed. It is where nature, the culture of Mexico and the comforts of modern-living blend seamlessly.

What makes this house unique

180 degree Sea of Cortez view. Quiet. No neighbors.

Perfection Found!

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!!

The beauty of the vast southern exposure from the veranda and pool area go beyond what words can adequately describe...the array of hues of the morning sunrise on the horizon with the ocean foreground are breathtaking and the sunsets are equally beautiful. The sounds of the surf are ever-present and provides a constant soothing ambiance. The breezes this home captures due to its location allowed us to keep every window wide-open 24/7, which provided a perfect pleasant temperature day and night; not once was there a thought of closing the windows and turning on the A/C. The layout of this home is very unique with one half consisting of a large open themed master bedroom with a very comfortable California King bed and a spacious dressing area that flows into the bathroom dual sink area. This is adjacent to an overhead rainfall shower that is next to a separate toilet and bidet room. The other half of this home is an expansive living and kitchen area with a very large island and a small built-in breakfast nook in the corner. The kitchen area’s southern facing wall is a continuous row of tall sliding windows offering a gorgeous ocean view with the veranda and pool in its foreground. Outside of preparing food & drinks we spent little time in this half of the home only because it was much too pleasant not be lounging on the veranda or poolside. This property has a casita (small guest house) which was nicely decorated and would be ideal for a single, couple or a few children. Adjacent to the casita and pool area is a full bathroom and shower area. The shower I would consider “outdoor style” although it is covered by a dome with a skylight and a large ocean facing window. We used this shower often after pool use as a convenient alternative to the master bedroom shower. All of this home's interior and exterior architecture, landscaping and furnishings are very artfully done. The surrounding grounds on this property, especially a large area covering almost a third of the properties footprint is an impeccably maintained desertscape of indigenous plants and trees. The property manager Judy could not have been more welcoming and hospitable in addition to being a fountain of information on the area. The security men at the main entrance were extremely friendly and this properties location within a gated community provided a solid sense of security.

Thank you Peter for the privilege of experiencing your beautiful home!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and loved every moment. Beautiful home, pool and surrounding "neighborhood." It's off the beaten path, clear of tourism and over-exploitation. Buzzards down the road is a lovely destination for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Peter - even though we were in town for business, we both enjoyed the hours we got to spend poolside. Terrific views, and quiet restful times.

The home was wonderful. Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The home is far enough from San Jose to give a sense of peace and relaxation, yet close enough for restaurants and activities. We loved the privacy of the pool and the views from the deck are amazing. Great choice for a couple wanting to unwind and relax.
