About Lynn Cranmer

Sixteen years ago we were looking for the perfect retirement weather and home. When we found Los Zacatitos, we knew that the neighborhood, warm waters and the outdoor lifestyle were perfect for us and our large family. We built an 2400 sq.ft upper house' on an acre, knowing we could always build a pool and another private home on the property.

The house has a large front deck that overlooks the beach and the ocean. We never tire of the sunrise and views.

My husband likes to surf, and I like to swim and kayak. Especially in warm waters. The back dirt roads are perfect for our running and mountain bikes. The neighbors are what make this a relaxed, but happy active place to be. It is also a great place for dogs!

If you like the beach, the breeze and the adventures of the East Cape, this is for you. We are close to town, but out of all the hussel and hassles. The town of San Jose has many restaurants and the shopping is incredible.

We love to garden and enjoy the palm trees that adorn our grounds. You dont need a whale watching trip....we have them right out front from December to April.. We love this home and hope we can share it with you.

Lynn Cranmer purchased this villa in 1997

Why Lynn Cranmer chose Los Zacatitos

It is a spectacular beach! Cool ocean breeze most of the year. The water temp is normally 75 to 80 degrees. The amazing Sea of Cortez is a vibrant turquoise and clear! Stand up paddling is the best when the surf is not big. Surfers enjoy a nice break right out front. A very swim-able and easy entry into the water. Easy entry and safe for children. You can watch your family from the deck! Your private pool and sun deck has a waterfall, LED lights and an incredible view of the beach. The pool is very kid-friendly and is just off the master bedroom and family room ( kids LOVE this!)

What makes this villa unique

Lots to do or NOT to do. Great weather from Nov to June.

Zacs Bar and Grill is in walking distance and is a favorite for the locals and our guests. Just 10 min away is the famous Buzzards bar and Grill. Breakfasts are fabulous! We are close to town, but far enough north of San Jose to enjoy tranquil beaches. There are no vendors or a million tourists. Very safe! We have air conditioning, too!

THE BEST EVER!!!! Gorgeous, Secluded, Relaxing Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even start? First of all, my family has adopted Lynn and Lynn as Grandparents. They are that awesome! The consummate Hostess and Host.They made sure EVERYTHING for us was perfect. From doing shopping for us, picking up Pork Carnitas (YUM), to taking us to the local farm market. Not ever doing a VRBO before, I wasn't sure what to expect . We went with our 3 adult children and followed the advice given by others to pack light. So we brought our swimsuits, flip-flops and couple pair of shorts and tops, medications and a toothbrush! Everything in a Carry On bag! Lynn literally had the entire bathroom stocked with toiletries. The kitchen is a fully stocked gourmet kitchen. Of our 7 night stay we only went out 2 times, our family loves to cook so being able to prepare and eat dinner under the stars was a dream. We stopped at the grocery store on the way to the Lynn's (its right on the way from airport)and stocked up for the week. No need to pick up spices for cooking its all there for you. As well as every size pot or pan, bowl or kitchen gadget you can imagine. Everything is designed for relaxation in the home. The outdoor palapas were perfect for sitting outside with out overheating and the pool area is great for my fellow sun lovers! Beyond stunning views, whale watching, star gazing and siesta's. Dr Lynn helped one of my kids to make a beautiful carved wooden bowl to take home. It was very cool. I really can't put into words how perfect everything was. We will be back!!! No doubt about It!

Perfect for Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at Lynn and Lynn's beach home! We were a group of 6 women who have been friends for decades and every year we come to Baja. This was by far our best location--love the East Cape. Every morning we were up for a walk on the beach which stretches long in both directions. The house was very comfortable and well-equipped with everything we needed. Loved the short drive to Flora Farms, Zaks and Buzzards--all great restaurants! Our gracious hosts strike just the right balance of being helpful and social while also respecting our privacy. Perfect vacation.

Thanks L&L,


P.S. Lynn had recommended Cactus car rental and I can't say enough good things about them. Very courteous and they make it easy to pick up and return car.

Amazing location and hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

The house, location and amenities where amazing. The Lynn’s were the best hosts you could hope for. If your looking for a family adventure that is safe in a foreign country this is it. We snorkeled everyday at the beach steps away. It’s a terrific place to relax with your family. I can’t recommend this place highly enough. Thank you!

Little bit to get there, but then no need to leave. Deserted beach, whales offshore, great reef and beach break, private pool, outdoor cooking, walk to restaurant/bar, turn a bowl on the lathe, everything included so no need to truck gear down there. Bring half of what you think you need, and plan on relaxing to the sweet sounds of the waves. The Lynn's are fantastic people who are gracious and generous; appear when you look for them but respectful of privacy. We booked again on the spot!!

Magical place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at this magical place right on the beach! The owners had everything ready for us to enjoy--kayaks, boogie boards, towels, toys etc. They even had dinner waiting for us the night we arrived! They always answered any of our questions and were there for us if we needed help, yet it still felt like our own private getaway. The house is comfortable, clean, quiet and has the most beautiful view from the deck! I woke up almost every morning to watch the sunrise. The home has a fully equipped kitchen that made our stay comfortable every afternoon for lunches on the patio. We went out to dinner each night in the nearby town and loved every place we went. I think the highlight of our trip was the amazing wildlife that we could see right from the porch. Whales, Dolphins, Stingrays and snorkeling are right out the back door and while we thought we would do an excursion or two, we ended up staying right in the back yard. Thank you Lynn & Lynn!

Owner's Response: So happy to have all of you. It is a fun place and I am so happy the whales and dolphins were right out the front. We have to say that the beach is always everyone’s favorite and you dont need many excursions. Thank you for choosing us. You were both so special...Lynn n Lynn

  • 5 of 5

Our Cranmer Family reunion was a great success,thanks to our hosts,Lynn and Lynn. Their Villa was the perfect setting for our get together. Lots of private spaces to enjoy. Only a few steps to the uncrowded beach. They provided all the beach toys,boogie boards,kayaks,surf boards, snorkeling gear etc. Look forward to doing this again.

Our beach is great for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. When the surf is up, you are just a walk away from Ladies Lounge and Waimesa. Just a 20 minuet drive east to Shipwrecks and other surfing hotspots. Take the new East Cape/Cabo Pulmo road. Stand up paddling and sunrises and sunsets are all here.

The town of San Jose is only 9 miles. You will find major grocery stores, restaurants, cinemas, tourist attractions.

The new marina for the fishermen in your family is at Puerto Los Cabos. Golf is also near the marina.

Cabo San Lucus is an hour west where you can shop at Costco and visit the many tourist attractions. We are on a quiet coast, but it is very easy to find anything you need. The community has the feeling of friends and family that enjoy the casual beach life.

There are many back roads to mountain bike, hike, and take leisurely walks or runs. ATV riding is great in the back roads where there are no homes. Something for everyone here.....but under the umbrella is where you find most of us. Enjoy the sounds of the surf, sunrises and sunsets are spectacular here.. We are right on the beach! The new East Cape Road from the town of San Jose del Cabo is paved to the ZACs Bar and Grill turnoff...then one mile down to the beach. No need for 4wheel drive. We only have 1.2 miles of a bumpy, dusty dirt road to our paradise.

Taking a day trip to La Paz is a great city to explore. This is a 3 hour drive for the adventuresome traveler. Todo Santos is an easy hour and a half on the new toll road. Cabo Pulmo is a great day trip.

Saturdays is a great time to shop at the San Jose Organic Market. You may even find fish and vegetables for sale right at your door. Please call us for other activities that we can share with you. San Jose has many restaurants to choose from. Floras Farm is close and is a favorite.
