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 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.

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. :)

We may need another one next year. Thanks for helping with improving our internet and loading us up with 264 movies!

Beautiful getaway off the beaten path!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at Lynn and Lynns. The house is the perfect setting for an off the beaten path vacation. While it was only about 20-25 minutes from San Jose del Cabo, you feel like you are worlds away. There are so many comfortable places to relax outside and enjoy the ocean view- we spent many of our days rotating our time between the beach, the pool deck, and the palapa area beside the house. We were often kept company by Gus the dog and Lucy the purring cat (Lynn and Lynn were careful to make sure that we enjoyed having them around, however, if you aren't as much of an animal person). Nearly everything you would need is provided.... beach chairs, towels, shampoo in all the bathrooms, hairdryers, spices for cooking, endless pots and pans.... truly you only have to bring your clothes and sunscreen! Lynn and Lynn are so friendly and helpful. They brought us cold medicine when one of us was sick, invited us to share a meal at Zak's with them, and picked up cereal and milk for us when we needed one more breakfast near the end of our trip. Despite always being available to help us, they were never obtrusive and we felt we had complete privacy when we wanted it. What a wonderful vacation!

Gracious hosts share their beautiful home in a quiet, beachfront setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Lynn's Zacatitos beachfront villa, steps from the warm Sea of Cortez. The Lynns lovingly built this spacious home, roomy enough for families, but intimate enough for two and they have thought of everything you would need for an easy, beach vacation.

First, the property. Understated elegance....the home blends into its surroundings beautifully - nestled in the hillside on multiple levels, it is not one of the monstrosity homes that scream out of character of the area. It is beautifully intertwined with the natural surroundings, offering plenty of outdoor areas to take in the environment. They've graced the property with plenty of shade palapas and integrated much of the landscape into the home, from wood accents, to stone paths to comfortable outdoor seating areas. The private pool, deck area and stone waterfall was a nice treat in the hot sun. While we didn't use the outdoor BBQ, the area was nicely outfitted for a great outdoor dining experience.

The inside was just as spectacular - a chef's kitchen with every cooking utensil needed if you want to do any cooking. The bedrooms are comfortable and with well-appointed ensuite bathrooms. Towels and linens were high quality and made for a wonderful home away from home. The place is completely off the grid and solar powered, so conservation is key and that is something to truly respect. We admired it.

The Lynns are fantastic hosts. While they live on the property, the vacation rental is very private. They are present when you need them to be and give you the space you want to enjoy the vacation home. We loved getting to know them and their pets. Gus is well behaved and Lucy was our constant companion. The Lynns took fantastic care of us - and when we both got sick, they checked in on us and brought soup, saltines, electrolytes, probiotics and more from the store. There is so much more I could write about this great place and the wonderfully kind, funny and personable owners. They were fantastic to work with prior to our arrival and made our stay that much better. They have a true joie de vivre that they love sharing with their guests. We've stayed in many VRBOs around the world, and this was one of the best, thanks to them. You can tell they love the home they have built and enjoy sharing it with others. Thank you, Dos Lynns! We hope to see you both, Gus, Lucy, Jorge and "Not My Cat" Tripui again soon!!

Beautiful, spacious, warm and accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give more than 5 stars than I would! I have now stayed at the Beach Front Villa with Dos Lynns twice now, and I look forward to time number 3. They have created and designed the most magnificent home off the grid that is eco conscious and appointed to perfection for a relaxing getaway. It is steps from the beautiful Pacific Ocean and situated in a quiet community that is minutes away from the artsy San Jose Del Cabo. Great restaurants are only a short drive away, but when you are at the home you are in your own cocoon of relaxation. Highly recommend for those who are looking to get fresh air, sun, and connect with nature for a restorative vacation with all the modern conveniences of home.

THANK YOU Lynn + Lynn!!

Fantastic property with fantastic hosts

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary at Casa dos Lynns and it far exceeded our expectations. The house is beautiful, has amazing ocean views and is stocked with everything you could ask for from the kitchen and bathrooms to everything for a great day at the beach. Lynn and Lynn have really put some thought into making sure everything you need for a fun East Cape vacation is ready and waiting. We will definitely be back.

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 !

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.
