I first came to La Ventana for a windsurfing clinic, but broke my foot three days beforehand so I didn't windsurf much (I did try a little, though!) and I had lots of time to limp around with my boot and my walking poles and explore the area. Needless to say, the beauty and tranquility as well as the soft sand and delightful water called to me.
Why Em chose La Ventana
This is a sweet place bordered by unassuming stucco walls with just the right amount of privacy. At first I wanted to open it all up, but after spending some time there I realized that it had been designed brilliantly for privacy and quiet, while maintaining the outstanding vistas and the ability to gaze at the beach and activity. Built by a Mexican engineer and his architect/artist daughter when they lived in La Paz, it looks simple yet a lot of thought has gone into making the space flow. Handsome and functional, it is not full of slick modern design, but rather fitting to its roots in a small fishing village. We've updated it over the years, adding features and space, gradually refurbishing some of the original materials that are worn, and retaining original touches such as the handmade floor tile. The lot extends from the town's dirt road all the way to the beach. There is a neighbor's house on the North, not lived in much of the time, and on the South there is an acceso, a rudimentary dirt road to the beach for public access. The acceso creates space between Casa del Sol and the next building to the South. (Neither of those neighbors was there when I first arrived!) The acceso is traveled by kiters and villagers. Local fishers mostly use the new public ramp 100 meters north, but sometimes launch from the beach out front. Someone from the local tortilleria drives down the road selling fresh warm tortillas in the morning, and Sylvano comes by in his truck three times a week (Nov-Feb) with produce, fresh-squeezed juice, and homemade tamales. The Thursday morning Farmers' Market is within walking distance, bustling with raw and prepared food and crafts. Within walking distance of several restaurants and taquerias.
What makes this house unique
By special arrangement, you can now rent the entire Casa! People have been asking about the upstairs. Fantastic open space with views all around. See the sunrise or the full moon from bed! With three private entrances and large common area, your group can have any combination of shared and private space. Sleeps 8 or more, plus youngsters and even babies. (Our grandkid came here at 2 months old!)
