About José Gutiérrez

José and Gloria Gutiérrez were born and raised in Los Angeles and are now retired teachers, living in Marin County, CA. We have been spending time in San José del Cabo with our family and friends since 1985 when we could only come for holiday vacations. Now we spend winters in Zacatitos and love sharing our spectacular property with friends and guests. We are usually on-site to see to your needs and allow for your privacy.

José Gutiérrez purchased this house in 1986

Why José Gutiérrez chose Los Zacatitos

We fell in love with the Los Cabos area when we came on an anniversary trip in 1985. We made some great friends that first trip who have inspired us to spend more and more time here. We love our growing community of Los Zacatitos because people here come to get away from the hubbub of city life and to focus on the natural beauty of the East Cape.

What makes this house unique

Playful whales and dolphins, swooping seabirds, chirping songbirds, buzzing hummingbirds can be seen and enjoyed much of the year. Sun rise and moon rise over the Sea of Cortez, sunsets behind the conical mountains of the Sierra Laguna, star-studded moonless nights are often breathtakingly beautiful. Our property has many comfortable places to observe these phenomena with your loved ones.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, came to 'Pelicanos' for 5 days ... 5 glorious days. The owners -- Gloria and Jose -- the perfect hosts. We had complete privacy (we're all clothing optional couples) and had the perfect time. The house is right on the beach and the supply room is full of paddle boards, surf boards, snorkeling gear, a BBQ and everything we needed to make our stay ... just perfect! From the patio, we saw 10-12 whales (up close, too!), manta rays, seals -- and lots of pelicans! We also had dinner up at Zac's Cafe twice, which was also excellent. We highly recommend 'Pelicanos' for couples and families.

Amazing place. Postcard location with everything you could ask for in a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. Been coming to the East Cape area of Baja for several years and this was definitely one of the best spots. The views from the rental are absolutely stunning and you can't beat being able to walk off your back porch right to the beach. Jose and Gloria are wonderful hosts as well and made us feel welcome and right at home. It's also very close to the only bar/restaurant in the area. Can't recommend more.

Yes, this is a bit of a remote location, but with the new paved road that almost reaches it, it is an easy shot into town while still giving you that remote feeling. This is not a Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo resort, so if that's what you are looking for, then look elsewhere. Also keep in mind that all of the places in the area are off the grid. Which means that energy is probably solar and water has to be trucked in. May be an inconvenience for some, but to me only emphasized how much we waste in our normal day to day life.

I am definitely looking forward to returning here.

Loved my Stay

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Paseo del Pelicano twice in the past two years. My time there has been very enjoyable and peaceful. The views are lovely both to the mountains and to the beach which is right in front of the house. To hear the the waves lapping on the beach at night is an enormous pleasure.

The accomodations are very comfortable , all the services are excellent.

I absolutely loved my stay and reccomend it amply.

We have stayed at Gloria and Jose's every year for the past 10 years. Our kids surf and this is the ideal location for them with spots all over the East Cape. We travel with two families, 8 people in all and the house is perfect for us. The kids love to sleep out under the palapa and watch the most incredible sunrises you can imagine. We BBQ dinners and eat out under the stars. Zac's, the only restaurant around, offers a fun night or lunch out.

This home is remote and off the grid which is what makes it so special.

The perfect spot to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

I’ve stayed at Paseo del Pelicano (PdP) twice .. the first time in 2012 and more recently in 2016. What a special spot! (and what huge improvements to the access road between the two visits!)

I love the pristine beaches and waters of Zacatitos and the fact that there’s a sheltered area in front of PdP that makes swimming safe for most of the year (that can’t be said for many spots in the Cabo area). My family enjoyed the great surfing and fishing nearby while I found that the home's huge ocean-front palapa is absolutely the best place in the world for a lazy afternoon of watching whales or reading a book.

The home is cheery & charming in a traditional Spanish colonial style and offered all the touches our family could wish for – beach towels, ocean toys, games galore. I really enjoyed the remote feeling of Zacatitos .. such a “get away from it all” location .. the combo of the vast desert vistas and ocean and wild burros wandering the dirt lanes make this a really special spot.

“Zacs Bar & Grill” in Zacatitos was simple and fun (and tasty) and a great option for meals when I didn’t feel like cooking. And there is a sweet little farmer’s market offering tasty breakfast items and veggies on Wednesdays just down the road.

“Flora’s Field Kitchen”, enroute to San Jose del Cabo, is a working farm that offers a delicious adventure in organic food. Don't miss it!

We visited San Jose del Cabo (now only 15 mins away) twice during our stay & enjoyed the restaurants, shops (and grocery stores) but I’ll admit I loved saying goodbye to row-after-row of timeshare condos and heading back to our secluded little slice of heaven at PdP.

Thanks Gloria & Jose, for opening up your home. We’ll be back!

Great place to stay, but not uncomplicated!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with friends who had visited last year and loved it. This place is difficult to find and the desert roads are terrible, but once you arrive and see the beach and the house, it is fantastic. (especially to those of us from the cold north). Lots of space in the house for 2 couples. Loved the kitchen and living areas but best was the brand-new palapa (the old one was destroyed in Sept's hurricane) where we spent most our time talking, reading. painting, watching the sea for whales (lots of them) and having most of our meals. The owners were present next door and very friendly. Swimming in the ocean is wonderful. A few other caveats: since the place is off the grid, water must be conserved. ditto lights, hot water etc. There is no place nearby to buy groceries and the trek back to town is very arduous so you must stock up. There is a bar/restaurant (Zac's) where the locals go and you can too once in a while. but be prepared to make most of your meals. The VRBO info (# of rooms and rental price) is faulty due to a computer glitch I am sure.

Paseo del Pelicano is in Los Zacatitos, an 'off the grid' community just 8 miles from shops, restaurants and the night life of San José del Cabo. Once here, you will relish the tranquility, with a comfortable home meant for a couple or an entire family. We have games, beach toys, snorkel gear and boogie boards for play as well as beach chairs, hammocks and lounges for relaxation.
