Close enough to feel the ocean spray, large home with plenty of privacy
With nothing between you and the Pacific Ocean but sand, this spacious Mexican beach house has it all. 2,400 sq. ft. of interior living space, with an additional 1,500 sq ft of full shade covered patio on the west, south and north sides of the house. A unique outside living room serves as the entrance to the house. On the ocean side, enjoy a large, full shade covered patio, 15'x52', overlooking the ocean.
Two bedrooms, each with bath, feature exterior entrances and queen beds. Wake to see the surf break from the windows of the master bedroom. Also an outdoor shower near the pool, and multiple outdoor beds and hammocks.
Additional outdoor living includes a huge palapa adjacent to the lagoon-style solar heated pool, and a large oceanfront terrace with gas fire pit for nighttime entertainment.
We are surfer friendly, and close to two of the world's best surf breaks. We will help you arrange for adventure tours, water recreation activities, private massage and/or yoga sessions, hiking, mountain biking and horse riding on the beach or in the mountains. The night sky is amazing, a truly unforgettable stargazing experience.
The property is walled on three sides, with the ocean on the 4th side. There are two homes on two separate lots within the compound. The homes are offset for maximum privacy, with landscaping, pool, and the palapa between them. Sorry, but we are not suitable for young children under 12 due to the unfenced pool and desert plants. We do, however, have a mobile crib for infants.
Villa del Mar has WIFI and satellite TV with American stations. For more details about the property, please search online for Baja Beach Getaway.

About Sharon Sheldon
We are a retired couple from Las Vegas, who love the warm weather and ocean music of the waves in Mexico. Former university instructors, corporate execs, and business owners, we enjoy meeting new people and welcome our previous guests to come back to paradise.
Sharon Sheldon purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Sharon Sheldon chose El Pescadero
Having lived in a desert environment for a long time, we wanted to be, not just close to the ocean, but right on the beach. Plus, we liked the energy friendly aspect of being off grid. We are totally solar powered, with propane for water heating and cooking.
What makes this Villa unique
This location is unique in that it is right on the ocean. While there are many attractive properties near the beach, there are very few that actually own part of the beach itself. Our guests have direct access to a beautiful, secluded beach. Sleep close enough to hear the waves, feel the ocean breezes, watch marine life from your terrace, and relax in privacy.

Baja Beach Getaway 2016
What a great place to stay! So beautiful and peaceful. We loved the house and the location. Many thanks to our host for helping plan our outings. We think we did it all...So nice to come home and relax overlooking the ocean and beautiful landscape.
Back for a 2nd time!
My family and I returned to this beautiful villa for a second time, and it won't be the last! It is our favourite place to relax together, by the pool, on the veranda, by the firepit, in the hot tub....so many choices. We drank our coffee in the morning watching the whales, and had evening drinks watching the sunset. The privacy is amazing compared to crowded beaches at resorts.
Many days we would plan an outing, and then decide it was perfect right where we were. This has to be one of the very best locations in the Baja area, with everything you need at your fingertips.
Sharon and Keith work hard to help their guests relax. They are the perfect hosts. Can't wait for next year!
Unbelievably Tranquil Vacation Home!
The pictures on line do not do this property justice. A group of four of us stayed in the larger of the two homes, Villa del Mar, and were impressed beyond belief! We have stayed at many VRBO properties throughout the world and these two homes are impeccably maintained and our hosts Keith and Sharon were great!. The house is stocked with every possible amenity one would need. The pool and lush garden area is unbelievable. One would think that by being in the middle of the desert on the Baja peninsula that there would not be much vegetation, but the landscaping that Keith has worked on is remarkable. The pool is immaculate and with the surrounding pool deck we had trouble getting up to leave. There is nothing between you and the beautiful Pacific Ocean and we sat every morning with coffee and night with cocktails watching some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. The beach out front makes for excellent walks in which you will rarely see another person on the beach for as far as you can see in either direction. There is so much beautiful sitting area on the outside of Villa del Mar that it makes for perfect reading, napping, or conversation. We also had the opportunity to tour the smaller Vista del Mar which is equally impressive. It sits back from the ocean with nothing blocking the views or the sound of the ocean and it has a spectacular roof top deck in which to view the ocean from a higher vantage point.
Keith and Sharon are wonderful hosts. They are extremely knowledgeable of the area and provide excellent recommendations on dining, activities, and anything you may want to know about the surroundings. They provided all of the privacy we needed but were there for any need we may had…which was none. We love dogs so they allowed their beautiful dog Cassie to come by and say hello when she was out. Between Keith, Sharon, Cassie and the stunning views from these homes our trip was absolutely perfect! We highly recommend this property if you are looking for an unforgettable vacation experience.
This place is amazing and so relaxing. Just got done with one of the most outstanding massage therapists, Javier, I've ever had "tenderize" my sore bod. I would say after 9 days, I have completely decompressed. Ready to come home and hit the ground running with so many plans for 2015.
If you ever want to come and have an amazingly relaxing time away from the concrete jungle, and in the sunshine in the middle of winter, then come stay at the casita of Villa del Mar. Our amazing hosts, Keith and Sharon Sheldon will make sure you have everything you need during your stay. Well, you do have to get your own food and have your own ride, but other than that, it's covered! Just go to bajabeachgetaway.com for more pics and more info on this fantastic place. We experienced outstanding surf nearby, sleeping to the sound of crashing waves; my kids played in their jammies on the sand first thing in the morning. It was a remarkable trip filled with adventure and and relaxation.
Perfect location, perfect holiday!
Thank you for such a perfect family holiday. The combination of the beautiful villas, the sound of the surf and Sharon and Keith's gracious hospitality was just what we needed. Even though we had seen all the photos, everything surpassed expectations. We stayed in both the Villa del Mar and the Vista del Mar. The large house is spectacular - so many places to sit and relax and watch the surf and the whales. The casita had everything we needed as well. If we had any questions, Sharon and Keith were available and full of great suggestions of places to go and places to eat. We discovered so much more of the area thanks to their guidance.
The whole area is beautiful to explore, but some days we just wanted to stay and enjoy all the amazing features of the property. Miles of unspoiled beach, the private pool, hot tub and palapa, the two firepits, whales every day...and the constant sound of the waves.
We can't wait to go back to Baja Beach Getaway!
Ocean front peaceful escape
We had such a wonderful time in this beautiful home. Sharon and Keith do such an awesome job in keeping this place looking amazing. We ended up staying longer then what we were planning, we were having such a great time. We will definitely return.
Near Todos Santos, well known as an artist’s colony, Villa del Mar is an ideal location to enjoy the stillness of a secluded beach and experience the best of Mexico with all your senses. Smell the fresh ocean spray, feel the warmth of the sun, see the lush tropical gardens, and hear only the gentle rhythm of the surf. If adventure is what you seek, there is boating, hiking, horseback riding, shopping, surfing, and much more along the Baja coastline. Only 40 minutes north of Cabo San Lucas, you will find easy access to all the area has to offer. We love the restaurants and shops in the authentic Mexican village of El Pescadero, only 10 minutes away. We share the stretch of beach in front of the Villa del Mar with Cerritos Beach, the only swimming beach on the Pacific side, which is also a popular surfing spot.
