My wife and I were looking for the perfect combination of privacy and excellent beach access for kiting and we found it here at Casa Del Sol. This property is in close proximity to all amenities La Ventana has to offer. The house and patio are steps from the sand, as well as where you set up and launch your kite. The property is high enough above the sand to give you complete privacy, but still with the feeling of being right on the beach. The completely gated yard with expansive patio was serene and beautiful.
The owner was in the studio upstairs and was very respectful of our privacy. She also spent great time preparing the "user guide" for the house as it answered most questions prior to use having to ask.
We definitely will be repeat visitors.
Just got back to snowy and 17 degrees in Colorado, and missing Casa Del Sol. Sandy sent us a thorough PDF a week before we arrived, covering everything we'd need to know for our stay. The property was perfect for being close to everything, but far enough away that we had absolute privacy. Location is perfect, right on the beach, with plenty of space to pump up kites and launch from our own "private" area. We'll definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
this place has a lot going for it, a beautiful location on the beach, huge windows that we opened to let in the ocean breeze and listen to the sound of the waves when we slept at night. The ktichens pretty well stocked, the king size bed is great , and the patio is the best feature of all. We kited while there and could basically rig right below our place. The owners were very accommodating, letting us put our luggage there before the 4pm check in time as we were stuck between places.
That said, It does have a bit of funkiness to it, its older and being a beach house, I guess thats to be expected but you can't tell from the pictures. We never used the 2nd bedroom, its separated from the rest of the house which is nice for privacy if you did have another couple there.
Great place in a magical location! We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Casa del Sol has everything you need and more and we loved the central location. Kevin and Angie were super responsive and easy to get a hold of when we had a concern - which was an easy fix. We were there a bit "after the season" and found many of the nearby restaurants and kite schools closed! Luckily we found Norm at Baja Surf (look for him at the campground based out of his RV)who was able to give us some lessons on the days when the wind came up - he was AMAZING and we felt like we really got a handle on the sport! Though we weren't able to take advantage of the restaurants that were in walking distance, those that were open in Los Cerritos (a quick drive) were great and the locals were warm and friendly. La Ventana is amazing and Casa del Sol is the perfect spot to take it all in!
Location, Location, Location. house was equipped with everything we needed for a great vacation. Comfortable beds, the basic supplies, and everything in working order with the rustic qualities you should expect in a older home in Baja...Pilot light blew out on water heater but was fixed within hours of reporting it to the caretakers, water stains on the very clean dishes...but unavoidable unless you you hand dry every dish...better dish towels, and an additional shot glass(s) would be my one suggestion. Thursday Farmers market was awesome...thats where we got the good Tequila that was good enough to sip- made us realize only one shot glass not enough. Other than that, which I consider SUPER minor details, I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away, or learn to kite. Perfect loop (walk of pride) for learning.
We had a great time at Casa del Sol. The central location makes it convenient to walk to restaurants, bars, and mini marts. A great kiteboarding location. The house had amenities of every kind, including paddle boards and kayaks. We plan on returning!

We have improved the small beach structure with gorgeous walls and doors of woven palo de arco, a traditional style built by skilled local artisans. The artisans also rebuilt the palapa roof that shades the front patio, with new palm leaves over the original red palm framework.
In the past three years, we have also added 600 square feet of patio for lounging and gear, HOT outdoor shower, new patio furniture, a grill, and stereo music players.
You cannot get any more central to the action. Kite launching right out front! Restaurante el Rincón on the beach about 150 meters away, with local cuisine, views of the action and the moonrise! Baja Joe's to the south a short walk! Playa Central to the north a short walk! A small grocery store practically across the street, and they have very cold beer. Forget the car, you don't need one when you stay here!
