About Owner/property manager Britta Stocker

The Baja has always been a special place for Brett and Britta since meeting at the Los Cabos International Airport in 1997 and then honeymooning in La Paz in 1998. After travelling around the world, they were always drawn back to the Baja and knew that one day they would make this their home.

Owner/property manager Britta Stocker purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Owner/property manager Britta Stocker chose Los Cabos

Brett and Britta’s enthusiasm to share the peace and tranquility of their ranch as well as the desert flora and fauna, prompted them to create the Mini-mountain resort with the aim of sharing their experiences and unique lifestyle. Their casa is situated on the estate at Rancho de la Sierra, detached from the Mini-mountain Resort.

What makes this cottage unique

Our 3 Casitas were designed with spectacular mountain views of Picacho San Lazaro and the San Jose valley to create a setting for a tranquil getaway and unique Baja vacation experience.

Off The Beaten Path

  • 5 of 5

This hidden oasis was a delightful place to land after escaping the chaos of the city. We woke up to birds chirping and explored the area during our morning walks. The days were spent enjoying the private pool and unwinding with friends. This is a hidden retreat amongst the cactus with carefully manicured pathways that are delightfully lit up at night. The stars were spectacular and we could see Saturn ascending in the eastern sky. The Casitas are clean and well maintained. Brett and Britta are gracious hosts and provided a wealth of local information. Upon our final day I was sad to pack up and wished we could stay longer to enjoy the magic of the surroundings.

Unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the peace and quiet offered at the ranch! Everything was neat and clean, Brett & Britta were wonderful hosts. Every detail was taken care of... from the fully stocked refrigerator, charcoal for the barbecue pit and chopped wood for the bonfire pit! Brett and Britta made us feel right at home and even invited us to supper in their home on her first night on the Ranch. We struck up a friendship which made the stay more enjoyable.

The pool and barbecue area provide beautiful views. We walked daily and enjoyed a tour of Brett's organic farm! Very cool!

Rancho de Sierra: beautiful serene dessert mini resort.

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for that special quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this the place to visit. Beautiful scenery, tucked away in the Baja dessert. Birds singing, flying and lots of dessert plants to admire. The owners Britta and Brett are awesome hosts and took lots of thought into the planning of this quiet hideaway. No phones or TV but there is internet access. Great little pool with huge bbq area that is covered. The cottages are perfect size for a couple with all the needed amenities. We did our own cooking which worked out well, only a stove was missing but not needed. Britta did our grocery shopping before we arrived so no car was needed. We stayed here for 3 days to unwind before our week in Cabo. Very private with just the sound and sights of the Baja dessert. Would highly recommend it to any one, kids also. Looking forward to returning.

Paradise made perfect

  • 5 of 5

Brett and Britta picked us up at the airport with cold Corona's, which was just what we need to adjust to the warm temperatures. It is a short drive to Rancho de la Sierra, and upon arrival our casita was well stocked with groceries and goodies we had asked them to shop for. Nothing better than a well stocked fridge with cold Coronas before a dip in the private swimming pool to cool off. We had the opportunity to visit Todos Santos and San Jose. We thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful and private surroundings of this resort. Britta speaks fluent Spanish which was helpful for our shopping trip to San Jose. They are lovely hosts and will do just about anything to ensure your stay meets your expectations....and there is no doubt you will want to return. I'm already planning a return trip this spring. Honestly, it really doesn't get any better, if you are looking for a peaceful, private setting away from the crowds of the all-inclusive resorts. I would strongly recommend you include this little gem in your plans. I know we will be back !!

Spectacular

If you are looking for a relaxing wind down of the everyday stresses of life, THIS is the place to go! I can honestly say that, as I have stayed there, was difficult to leave :( The photos definitely reveal the property and appearance. The hosts are amazing and truly would like you to enjoy the best stay and R & R you have ever experienced! I am looking forward to my next Mexican vacation and a stay at the ranch :)

We were picked up at the airport by Brett, and he just happened to have a half dozen cold beer in a cooler. And that was fantastic because by the time we left customs we were very parched. That was the BEST start to a wonderful holiday. We arrived at Rancho de la Sierra to find a fully stocked fridge, full of produce, cold beer and all the groceries we asked them to get. We never left the ranch for 3 days, we just unwound with our books by the pool. We then rented a car and went down to San Jose and the next day to San Lucas and our last day was spent travelling to Todos Santos having lunch at The Hotel California.

We had a fantastic holiday at the ranch and will definitely go back.
