Large lot, RV parking on property, mountain and sea views, 55" satellite TVs, 24/7 security gate, great floor plan with high ceilings, a short 3.5 mile drive to the Ranch's private pools, tennis courts, ATV trails, and private beach. Two pools - one brand new, one near the private beach. Ride your ATV right from the house - quad heaven! BBQ grill, large brick patio faces ocean. Large observation deck for panoramic views. Sparsely populated but the few neighbors we have are wonderful. There is an indescribable peacefulness and energy here that envelopes you the moment you arrive - you won't want to leave. A quick drive to Ranch facilities including the championship golf course - and to the sleepy and authentic fishing village of San Felipe. Great restaurants and grocery stores, friendly locals, and though we have a variety of food choices San Felipe is a sea food lover's dream come true - especially for giant fresh shrimp.

(Please note: $30 Resort fee collected upon check in at El Dorado Ranch Guest Services at the La Ventana del Mar Gate - approx. 6 miles north (before) downtown San Felipe. For pool and gate passes, etc.) Also - WiFi is available at the Ranch pools, the Ranch restaurants The Pavilion and La Palapa and downtown. The private Ranch beach is 3.5 miles from the house and includes drive up parking, palapas, and outdoor showers - and is one of the best beaches n the San Felipe area.

Mobile data package recommended.

Check-in at La Ventana del Mar - the main El Dorado Ranch gate - on the left as you are driving south towards San Felipe. See Guest Service at entrance area.

Please note the short drive right up to the gate of the El Dorado Ranch beach is the best way to visit the beach/Sea of Cortez and the swimming pools at the Ranch. Carrying chairs and coolers in the sun is no fun - and there are a very limited number of higher priced condos directly adjacent to the beach. So enjoy the cool and quiet of the house - and the A/C in your vehicle on your way to the beach and the pools!

Check in at 4:00pm - Checkout at noon. Guest Services (Key, resort fee payment of$30 per family, pool passes, etc.) is at the La Ventana del Mar gate - on the left approximately 22 miles south of the checkpoint at Mexico HWY 5.

About John P

We purchased our lot in El Dorado Ranch's Paseo del Sol in 2003. We installed a compacted RV pad and began visiting two to three times a year. One night while sitting around our camp fire we began to draw lines in the sand to outline the shape and placement of a new home. In 2005 construction began was completed in January 2006. We adore San Felipe and look forward to retiring there. There's nothing quite like being able to hop on a quad and ride over to the pool or beach. Golf, fishing, AWESOME and cheap dining, great neighbors and volunteer opportunities, the mountains, the sea, the breeze, the desert - all the elements we love in one beautiful place.

John P purchased this House in 2003

Why John P chose El Dorado Ranch

The four percent grade from the Sea of Cortez to the mountains provides a constant and consistence sea view as you move into the tranquil and inviting desert landscapes. The quiet is profound and elicits a peaceful environment in which to be calmed and rejuvenated. You have to experience it to really know - visit our home and you'll see why people fall in love with the house, the surroundings and San Felipe. Ah, Baja - no bad days!

What makes this House unique

Incredible views, including some of the most beautiful Sea of Cortez sunrises and mountain sunsets. Pull a chair up to the fire pit and relax in a desert that offers spectacular skies - with a bright rich pageantry of stars and a giant over sea moonrise - so bright you can walk in the desert at night. Safe, secure, enveloping, captivating and restive, our home and the area offer much - and for all vacation tastes.

                                                                      Khwezi M.South Surrey, BC

                                                                      John was a great host throughout the process, answering all questions, providing information, and sharing his personal reflections of living in San Felipe. Thanks John!

                                                                      The check-in process was easy, quick and as stated. The security staff were ever pleasant and courteous. The house was clean and a good layout. The location (at the most northerly entrance to El Dorado) was some distance out of town but a nice location to enjoy the silence of the desert. Sunrises over the ocean and sunsets behind the mountains were wonderful ways to begin and end the days...or simply reflect.

                                                                      Met some very helpful fellow Canadians on the visit who also live in San Felipe or have been going down there for 20, 30 years plus which was a bonus. Will be re-connecting with them for further info and insights as we research our winter getaway location.
