About the Property

Ocean view House, 2 Bedroom + 2 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Casa Baja is located in a secure community(Castillo de Arena) on a hillside overlooking the Sea of Cortez, which is a 10 minute walk or three minute ride away. The Castillo de Arena development is home to Americans and Canadians- many full-time residents. For your security it is fenced and the entrance is monitored by video camera. We are located 5 miles south of Los Frailes, 6 miles south of Los Arbolitos (a beautiful snorkel bay where you can rent kayaks and snorkel gear, or just relax under a palapa), 10 miles south of Cabo Pulmo (where you can take fishing or diving tours, or rent water sport equipment. There are also several restaurants here), and 6 miles north of Vinorama (one restaurant). The main floor of the house, built in 2004, is an octagon, 32 feet across, which contains spaces for kitchen, dining, living, sleeping areas. The only interior walls in the octagon are for the bathroom, which includes a spectacular outdoor, but very private shower.

Where you will spend most of your time though is on the front porch (terraza), with its palm roof and beautiful view that goes from the Sea of Cortez to the mountains of southern Baja. It’s the perfect spot for morning coffee sitting on the couch or loungers and listening to the birds talk about what’s in bloom or if the time is right you can watch the whales splash about. You’ll probably be back in the evening for a drink or dinner. Nothing beats sitting around the terraza’s dining table and watching the sun set over the mountains while you feast on something you’ve just taken off the BBQ.

Below the main level and dug into the hillside keeping it partially insulated from the heat is a bedroom, with 2 twin beds (can be converted to a king bed) and attached bathroom. Also on this level is a utility space which includes a washing machine and serves as storage space for a couple kayaks which you are free to use.

There is a small library of DVD's to watch, CD's to listen to, and books to read. You can plug in your MP3 player and listen to YOUR favorite music.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My wife and I own a pharmacy in a rural, northern California town. I am active in the local theater and have written several plays. We have both appeared in several plays. My wife is an avid photographer and took many of the pictures you see on the VRBO listing. We both enjoy travelling.

Why the Owner Chose Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico:
I bought this property in 2001 on a camping trip and decided to build in 2003. I designed the casa myself with the help of local architect and contractor, Alfredo Gomez. I have a very stressful job and when I get down here that all fades away. I enjoy the isolation and being able to enjoy the birds, fish, whales. Being able to walk for miles on the beaches and arroyos and rarely seeing a soul. The people here are so friendly and helpful, both the natives and the transplanted Canadians and Americans. I have wonderful neighbors.
