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 1600 sq.ft upper house' on 3/4 of 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 Baja California Sur

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.

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!

Best cabo trip so far.

  • 5 of 5

We spent five amazing days in May. The day of our arrival was slightly overcast and windy, but the following four days we had perfect 80-85 degree weather. The surf was calm and we enjoyed swimming and snorkeling. We also got to try Lynn's new stand up peddle board. We literally had the beach to our self!

At the house, we couldn't keep our five year old daughter out of the pool(s) and my wife consumed several books on her ipad.

Food was amazing! We went to Zac's the first night and enjoyed "Taco Tuesday" with all the locals. We also visited Flora farms for a great farm to table experience. My favorite meal was dinner at Buzzard's bar. I chose the Tuna and didn't regret it. It was perfectly prepared and melt in your mouth delicious!

Gus (the dog) was a constant companion. Be warned, if you throw that ball for him, you may have just obligated yourself an extended game of ball tug-o-war.

We all packed light and found we still packed too much. You don't need much more than a good pair of flip flops and a swim suit to be perfectly happy on the beach or by the pool.

One of the hardest decisions you will face is where to take your afternoon siesta. The lounge areas are everywhere, and all covered by amazing palapas. It's a tough life...but you will get used to it. :)

Owner's Response: We have you all booked for next year! Gus, was up at the upper pool and was looking for kids and toys. What fun it is to have families like you. The Hobie Eclipse is so much fun. We may need another one next year. Thanks for helping with improving our internet and loading us up with 264 movies!

Beautiful beach front villa that accomodated my entire family (3 generations) in style.

  • 5 of 5

Zacatitos is a great vacation spot ! you're off the grid , yet there is a real community feel in this east cape favorite. Close enough for quick trips to town for shopping or dining. 3 large bedrooms with private baths, fully appointed kitchen, large living room and multiple decks and pool let you really spread out. Loved every minute of our stay. Can't get back soon enough !

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have rented this property. The owners (the Lynn's) are wonderful hosts and it's a bonus to have them as they are truly the best hosts. The place feels like home and it was wonderful to visit again. We stayed for 10 days and the area has many things to do - San Jose is 20 mins away and has delicious restaurants and interesting shops..not your typical touristy stuff. Cabo Pulmo is 30 miles away and has great snorkeling. (you can also snorkel off the beach at the house which is good too!) The plunge pool has the best ocean view and we enjoyed watching fish jump in the evening. The area has a relaxed vibe and it's quiet and safe. There were very few people on the beach and all were very friendly. Their dog Gus is a great dog; friendly, relaxed and obedient. There are 3 resident cats who are cool too. I can't imagine finding another property like this and we can't wait to return!

Our family--parents, two adult sons with wives, and one infant--spent a week here. Each couple had a private room with bathroom. We all love to coook and found the kitchen extremely well equipped with every gadget, serving piece, storage containers, and dishes I would have in my own home. The weather was perfect for us--hot in the day in the sun but lovely in the numerous shaded areas On the patios. Some nights we turned in the ceiling fans but on other nights the temperature dropped enough and with no humidity, no fans were needed. We enjoyed cooking and eating breakfast in the outdoor kitchen area. We used the indoor kitchen for dinners but the rest of the time, we spent outside at the dining table, the comfy lounging areas, or poolside. The pool is small but just right for cooling off while reading a book or floating on a raft. My sons enjoyed using the surfboards and boogie boards while the girls watched from under the umbrellas. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time except for a few times when local residents came to surf, swim, or sun. The Lynns have everything we would want or needfor a beach vacation but if they didn't, I am sure they would get it. We enjoyed wine and dinner with them and of course, their harmless dog, Gus. Would definitely come again.

Owner's Response: So, so sweet of you to take the time to write a review! We enjoyed having you. The laughter and little cries from a baby are so wholesome. You were a busy grandma, and your family was special. I love it when guests like the favorite place to be!

paradise, south of the border!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Lynn and Lynn's many times with various combinations of family and friends. This trip included us, our son, his wife and his 3 children, 6,4 and 1!!! As the 4 yr. old said several times during our 5 day stay, "we are never going back!." Sadly, we had to come back to reality, but the feeling of warmth, both from the sun and the Lynn's hospitality, carries over to bring smiles to all our faces. You cannot beat the view; absolutely breathtaking. You cannot beat the accomodations; comfy, all-inclusive, and access to everything one should ever need away from home. You cannot beat the "peace" that you feel upon waking to a quiet sunrise and the sounds of breaking waves. No cars, no loud parties; this is the ideal place if you are looking to truly relax and regenerate from our hectic lives. Lynn and Lynn are the consummate hosts; laid-back while providing everything from sunscreen, kayaks, toys, books and a vast knowledge of the entire area. Once you stay with Lynn, Lynn, Gus and their 3 cats, you will look no further in the East Cape area for your magnificent vacation destination.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Lynn's this past March. We vacationed a short 5 days with our 11 month old baby and had a great time! The weather was quite pleasant though a bit too cold for the pool (high 60's), but that didn't stop us from enjoying the breeze and awesome views of the ocean, cute houses and local donkeys roaming the area. The Lynn's are the best and when they say they have everything, they really mean it!

Zacatitos is a quaint little community that is only hard to find the first time (do not follow the directions Google Maps provides, there's a new road that is not yet surveyed).

We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming. We are getting the pool heated. It was a cold spring for sure. We love having families...especially those that turn out to be friends. Babies are the best...right.???? We hope to have more families like you that keep us laughing and happy. It has been warm this week. May will be cooking. The pool was 80 degrees today...we want to keep it that way.....Hugs...

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.
