Hacienda del Sol rests on the shore of the beautiful Sea of Cortez with miles of white sand beaches, diverse sea life and spacious tranquil surroundings.
The Hacienda is located just outside of La Ribera, a quaint traditional Mexican fishing village, an hour’s drive north of the Los Cabos airport. This is the ideal location for a relaxing vacation, away from the fast pace of everyday life. La Ribera is home to a number of small family run restaurants, grocery stores and shops. The local people are very friendly and helpful.
Working with an award winning architect and builder, Hacienda del Sol was created to reflect the finest in authentic Mexican style, which is apparent throughout the house. The Hacienda has been created with comfort and convenience in mind with traditional architecture, Mexican finishes, such as specially selected Talavera tile and a spacious interior that opens out to a large veranda and welcoming pool.
The two master suites have luxurious king size beds with perfect views of the Sea of Cortez through the expansive sliding glass doors. Each bedroom has a large adjoining bathroom that has a walk in shower with a bench, as well as a double vanity. The sliding glass doors can be left open at night, allowing you to fall asleep to the gentle sound of the lapping waves.
The third bedroom has two queen size beds and a large walk-in closet. This bedroom also has views of the Sea of Cortez with its own sliding glass door and small private patio. The adjoining bathroom has a double vanity and large walk in shower with a bench.
The large central great room is perfect for gathering at any time during the day. The seating area provides for easy conversation and there is a television and DVD player with a large variety of movies.
The professional, chef designed kitchen is spacious and comfortable, allowing guests to gather during food preparation and dining, as there is island seating for six. Another special feature is the large traditional Hacienda style dining table.
The veranda spans one entire side of the house, with a fantastic view of the Sea of Cortez. This is where the pool and gas fire-pit are located, where you can spend many relaxing hours during the day and night. A sun sheltered outdoor dining area is another option for enjoying the tranquility of Hacienda del Sol. If you enjoy cooking on the BBQ, there is a large outdoor gas grill only steps away from the kitchen.
The Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park with its spectacular living coral reef and abundant marine life is located 16 miles south of La Ribera. There is a small village with facilities that can set up dive tours, and provide diving or snorkeling equipment if you do not have your own. There are also a few small restaurants in Cabo Pulmo.
Twenty five miles north of La Ribera is the tourist town of Los Barriles where wind surfing and sailing are popular sports. There are restaurants, shops and hotels, as well as a larger grocery store. Live music and art festivals can occur during the tourist season.
The Sea of Cortez is one of the best bodies of water for fishing in the world. Locals and tourists alike love to seek out theRooster Fish from the shore and have named the coastline 'Rooster Fish Alley'. Sierra, Dorado, Marlin, Red Snapper and Tuna are a few other species that are popular with the fishing crowd. If you prefer, arrangements can be made for a panga boat to pick you up directly in front of the hacienda for a day of fishing. Charter boats are also available for hire for deep sea fishing.
Hacienda del Sol is a unique accommodation located in a safe part of Mexico and we look forward to sharing the experience with you!

About Hilary Blatz
We've traveled in Baja for many years as it is one of our favorite places to visit. We have always loved what the small towns in Baja have to offer; quiet and relaxing environment, beautiful coastline and the rugged desert. We purchased the property in 2011 and construction was complete in November of 2012. During this process, we became great friends with our architect and builder, and other locals, and are thrilled to be apart of such a great community.

Hacienda del Sol
Beautiful, well appointed home with lots of room right on the sea. Perfect beach for long walks; clean and hardly any other people. Quite isolated, requiring driving to small towns, markets and restaurants. Local food was excellent! Property manager was very helpful for any questions and concerns. We enjoyed the experience very much.
Thank you for your comments. We are so glad that you were able to enjoy Hacienda del Sol and the east cape for a nice long winter stay. We hope to have you as guests in the future.

Getting lost in baja with all the comfort one could ask for
From the very beginning Hilary was amazing. She responded quickly to my request to rent her home. Then proceeded to amaze me with over the top helpfulness. If you have never been to this part of baja it is absolutely beautiful and amazing but it is well off the beaten path. One is not always afforded every luxury that you may have in cabo san lucas But with Hilary's help she was able to help find us every thing we could have ever wanted and needed . She first made sure I knew exactly how to arrive at the hacienda ( maybe a lil item but this Baja doesn't always have roads. nor does it have signs to make sure you make it and forget about ways or google maps these roads don't exist ). She then help coordinate dinner for our group on our arrival night which was such a treat. Menu had anything we could have asked for and was prepared deliciously !
The Hacienda it self was exactly what we had hoped for , A beautiful open hacienda footsteps to a nearly secluded beach. Inside the rooms where spacious. well kept and had the most beautiful Mexican tile work. Beds where comfortable. kitchen had anything and everything to make a meal . outside area was built perfectly to pay tribute to the beautiful sea of cortez. I honestly have never had such luck with VRBO . I will most certainly visit this hacienda again .
Thank you so much for your kind words! It was a pleasure working with you, and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay.
Please let me know when you plan on returning to Baja, as we would gladly open our home to you once again.
We loved our week at the Hacienda. The feeling is open, the tile work and the views were wonderful. Ramon was very helpful and we had two dinners in the Hacienda catered by Ramon that were delicious and so romantic out on the patio by the pool. The dirt roads were not well marked but once we found the property we loved the privacy and peacefulness. Bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and very comfortable as was the whole house. A wonderful place truly away from the world.
Serene waterfront property
We stayed here in October to celebrate a birthday. The hacienda is very well appointed and the location is awesome. It is very quite and peaceful, the views are amazing and we spent alot of time on the patio and in the plunge pool. The paddle board and kayak are nice additions, in case you don't want to leave the property. The water is very calm and good for swimming too. The caretakers take excellent care of the property and checked in on us too. Very comforting. Would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us! We’re so glad that you enjoyed your birthday celebration at the hacienda.
Best wishes to you and your family and we hope to be in touch in the near future.
Great place for a family trip.
We loved the hacienda. The pool was great for the kids and the paddle board and kyaak were well used by the adults. The patio was a great place for lunch and dinner.We enjoyed Graciela's wonderful cooking and would highly recommend this special place away from tourists a and close to Cabo Pulmo's wonderful snorkeling.
We’re so glad that you enjoyed the hacienda, the beach, the pool and wonderful Cabo Pulmo!
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience.
Best wishes to you and your family!

Very beautiful Hacienda, front one of the best beach of BCS. Well equipped, with a good service made by Ramon. Very close to Cabo Pulmo e to Los Barriles. In La Ribera is possible to find all the basic goods you need, even if is better to buy when you arrive in Los Cabos Airport
