"You guys have the coolest place in all of La Ventana Bay, hands down!!" the feedback we've been getting. Come see for yourself!
Beginning in 2015 we started inviting vacationers and families to experience our classic Mexican style escape. Each guest room is beautifully hand crafted in a style of it's own, with great attention to detail. Built around a grand patio setting with a fully equipped kitchen and barbecue area. All of our rooms are equipped with A/C, ceiling fans, quality beds and linens, purified drinking water, access to wifi. The palapa covered rooftop houses a pool table for entertainment or family fun and spectacular views of the entire bay.
You have the option of renting the entire villa or an individual suite which shares the common patio area and communal kitchen.
The large second story suite with its spectacular view is the perfect place for a romantic get away. Watch the sun rise out of the sea from the king sized bed; enjoy the large private bath with an ocean view from the shower; the private lanai is the place to relax with your morning coffee/tea or evening Margarita/cerveza, while enjoying the view of Cerralvo Island and the entire La Ventana Bay.
There are two adjoining rooms with stone walls and a private bath.
The brick room is a separate building with its own large private bath.
The fifth bedroom is situated below the patio near the outdoor bathhouse and is a sweet, private room for two or perfect for the kids.
The separated rooms make it comfortable for a group or family traveling together who want to have privacy. Daily maid service incl.
You can relax in the hammocks in our oasis surrounded by palm trees, bougainvillea and plumeria trees. This is a perfect setting for wedding ceremonies, a special occasion event or simply a great place to get away.
Rent our private boat to take a sunset cruise or enjoy the underwater world for an invigorating spearfishing or snorkeling adventure.

About Linda Selby
My husband, Chay, grew up in La Paz and spent lots of time diving the waters surrounding south Baja. He brought me to this peaceful paradise for the first time in 1990 and I fell in love with it's natural beauty, the ocean and sea life. We bought property here in 1998 and decided to make our dream come true and move to this area ten years later. Chay is a master craftsman and we have built our homes from the ground up "poco a poco" as they say in Mexico. The villa has been created for comfort in unique design and style. It's very satisfying to share our little oasis with our guests while they experience the natural beauty of the area.
Linda Selby purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Linda Selby chose El Sargento
Ours is an enchanting place to relax after a fun day at the beach. You can lie in a hammock and read your book, siesta or meditate to the sound of the many birds and breeze. Or sit on your own private lanai and watch the action on the water. See the sunrise from your bedroom. Step up to the palapa covered rooftop with a margarita and watch the spectacular sky as it changes color with the setting sun, or star gaze at night (the sky is extraordinarily clear and shooting stars are common). Take a stroll around the property with your camera and snap photos of an incredible variety of birds as they flit from the many palms to desert plants and flowers.
What makes this Villa unique
The separate rooms make it comfortable for a group or family traveling together and wanting to have privacy.

Great off the beaten path guest house!
Sargento/Ventana is truly a special place. The marine life is amazing. The beach is natural and people free. The town is full of great locals. My wife and I came with our children and had an awesome experience with Linda and her husband. The guest house is great. The kitchen has everything you need. The WIFI and Netflix was perfect for the kids. I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a great off the beaten path experience in Baja. Definitely worth the drive from Cabo for the peace and quite of this special spot!
Thanks, Jeremy! We enjoyed having you and your sweet little family with us. We're so glad you had such a good experience on your first trip to Mexico! This area is a very special place and we love sharing it.
A wonderful stay for three old friends
We had a wonderful time here... reconnecting, walking on the beach, cooking in, playing pool, riding local trails and taking siestas. Linda is a wonderful hostess. Friendly, welcoming and helpful. We felt like part of a community here. We will be back.
It was great to have you with us Jenna. Glad you were able to enjoy so much in a short time. Looking forward to having you with us again! Linda & Chay
A genuinely tranquil spot for enjoying La Ventana / El Sargento
The peaceful setting, vicinity to great snorkeling on the reef at the bottom of the path to the beach, unique architectural details, view from the rooftop patio (with pool table), well-equipped communal kitchen, and ample seating for outdoor dining on the central patio combined to make this an ideal place for our large group. We were active all day (kite-surfing, hiking, etc.) and looked forward to relaxing evenings, cooking and dining, back at Linda and Chay's "tranquil oasis by the sea". We are already planning to return again next year!
Thank you so much Pat. It was a pleasure having you guys with us and we are glad you enjoyed the area to the fullest. We will look forward to having you here next year! Linda & Chay
Lovely views close to the beach
Doors and windows Hand crafted with a very European feel with a well organized group kitchen and dining area in the patio with 3 rooms downstairs and a spectacular upper level master with a great view. Easy ocean access for kiteboarders and owner is a spear fishing guide.
Craftsmanship plus location
A beautiful property close to the beach. Owners (Shay and Linda) live on the property. Shay checked in a few times a day to see if we needed anything, but was not in any way intrusive.
We stayed in two rooms on ground floor of the villa. Shared kitchen with a nice couple who stayed on upper level.
Immaculately clean. Good beds and linens. TV room was nice to have for family time at night. Pool table and ping pong also available.
Property is less than a mile off paved road so it is quieter than places in town. Sweet dog, Sophie. Nice view of Sea and palms. Beautiful lush garden. Pleasant patio area for dining outside. Well-stocked market nearby for beer, wine food and supplies. Great farmers' market on Thursday mornings in town.
Thank you, Joy! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to have you here again when you travel to Baja. Linda & Chay
It's all in the details
Linda and Chay have built a gorgeous place with their own hands and the level of good taste and care, down to the smallest of details, is impressive and inviting. This was our first stay at Sea Sniper but it was our 9th time in the area and the accommodations at Sea Sniper are by far the classiest and most beautiful that we've ever had the pleasure of enjoying during our annual trips that last an average of 14 days. We felt like we were staying at someone's beautiful home. The location is steps off of a gorgeous beach that is ideal for kiting. The honeymoon suite bed was super comfortable and the views were gorgeous, both daytime and night. Relaxing in bed and watching the moonlight dance on the Sea of Cortez is something to be experienced. It's important to add that if you like to sleep in you'll want to bring an eye mask as the sun will be your alarm clock. However, early to bed early to rise is the Baja way of life, so take that for what it's worth. The shared kitchen and outdoor dining area couldn't have been more convenient or perfect. We were well cared for from the moment we arrived to the moment we left and were sad to leave. We will be back.
Thanks so much, Renata, for the great review of your stay with us. We loved sharing our home with you and are happy you enjoyed the "honeymoon suite", as well as all those windy days. Looking forward to having you with us again! Linda & Chay
This area is world renowned for water sports such as whale watching, rod & reel fishing, spear fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, and is considered a premier kite boarding destination.
