Overview

About the property

2 fully equipped homes that can sleep up to 8

San Juanico is all about the beaches, but after a long day of surfing Scorpion Bay and beach combing we find it's nice to return to the privacy of La Huerta. Perched on a hill in a quiet neighborhood overlooking the pueblo of San Juanico and the mesas that surround it our property, La Huerta, provides a tranquil retreat within a garden setting. Both Casita Artistica and La Casita are fully self sufficient homes built in traditional Mexican Hacienda style.

LA CASITA:

La Casita was originally built as an artists retreat with picturesque views and a 600sqft open studio floor plan that allows for lots of light and air flow. Situated perched on a hill in a quiet neighborhood overlooking the town on San Juanico, La Casita is the epitome of tranquility. Built in traditional Mexican hacienda style La Casita is a self contained studio with a fully equipped kitchen, Wifi internet, a full bathroom, large living area with a queen size bed, it’s own private entrance and secure parking. It is 100% solar powered providing you with electricity 24/7, unlike intermittent town power which is only supplied from 6am-11am and 6pm-12am.

CASITA ARTISTICA:

Casita Artistic is a 728sqft self contained open floor plan home that sits on its own private property. It is surrounded by a lovely garden in a quiet neighborhood and has views overlooking the pueblo of San Juanico and the Mesas that surround it. Casita Artistica is equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, Wifi internet, a full bathroom, a large living area with a queen bed and a folding futon, its own private entrance and secure parking. It is 100% solar powered providing you with electricity 24/7, unlike intermittent town power which is only supplied from 6am-11am and 6pm-12am.

Additional beds can easily be added to either Casita.

Why Keren Katz chose San Juanico

My Husband and I have been traveling to San Juanico for over 15yrs. We fell in love with it's simplicity right away as it quickly became our favorite surf spot in all of Baja. Four years ago we finally made the permanent move down here and now call San Juanico home on a full time basis. This year we have decided to open our property to others to come and enjoy this quite retreat we love so much.

The Pueblo of San Juanico sits overlooking the world class surf point known as Scorpion Bay, a beautiful point break that is considered among the top ten surf spots in the world. The beaches of San Juanico abound in miles of beauty and the bay is considered to be a fisherman's delight. San Juanico is a quaint fishing village providing the basics for a tranquil vacation: basic tiendas, laundry service, local restaurants, Friday morning Farmer's Market.

Notes:
Both Casita Artistica and La Casita are powered 100% by solar energy. You will not have to deal with the inconsistency of town electricity which is only on from 6am-11am, and 6pm-11pm. But, because we are on solar we have opted for alternative products such as a french press and not a coffee maker, traditional tortilla pan for toast instead of a toaster. We do most of our battery recharging and other high energy usage equipment during peak sun hours in the middle of the day. You will find that these slight changes make modern life as simple as in any city.

Cozy, Beautiful, Well Cared for Spot in a Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with friends in the little Casita. Keren is lovely. The property is well cared for, and we had plenty of room to do our thing and enjoy.

The only hang-up was a little miscommunication about how many of us there were, and which spaces we were renting. The ad on VRBO advertises two casitas on the property with room for 8. The week before our arrival we discovered that Keren was only expecting 2 of us, and only had one of the casitas available. Keren graciously allowed to us to pitch a tent in the garden to accommodate the other 4. I have nothing but nice things to say about Keren as a hostess. She was wonderful and accommodating without being intrusive in any way, and the place is gorgeous. The ad, on the other hand, is misleading, and communication via email did not suffice to clarify our expectations. I would recommend trying to get a phone call in to finalize arrangements.

The best!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the entire home and studio Cottage. The accommodations are top notch, very clean, well equipped and comfortable. It's Scorpion Bay so summers are hot but there is plenty of shade lots of electricity to run your fan and always instant on hot water. Full kitchens and comfortable furniture. Keren the owner and host was helpful and friendly she let you have your privacy but was open and available. We know where we are staying our next trip.
