Overview

About the property

Ocean view villas steps away from the beach

"You guys have the coolest place in all of La Ventana Bay, hands down!!"....is 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.

Patio Level:

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.

Please call 808-446-6628 for a booking quote as we have:

• Complete villa price $295.00-$350.00 per night

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 ago. 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 Baja California Sur

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Amazing small resort and boutique hotel, for spearfishing, kiting, or just relaxing!”

I couldn't imagine a more sublime place in Baja. The friendly couple who own Villa Las Piedras have created an oasis. The gorgeous rooms are tucked in among beautiful trees and plants. The place only has a half dozen rooms so they can take the time to really cater to their guests. The beach there is white and sandy and you can snorkel out front, or Chay will take you out to one of the beautiful reefs, islands, or into the blue water for fishing (he is btw, a fish whisperer.) We go there to kite surf, hike, and mountain bike as well as fish, and feel fortunate we found this place!



If you're lucky, they'll make sashimi for you that is incredible!

Craftsmanship plus location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great experience.

It's all in the details

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful location about one block from ocean

  • 5 of 5

We rented this entire property from Linda and Chay from 12/26 through 1/3. What an amazing experience! This is a beautiful property about one block from the ocean; very convenient for two couples as the residences are completely separate. Shared living area and kitchen made for a fabulous experience. Linda and Chay were great hosts. Chay took us out on his boat for snorkeling and a spearfishing lesson! La Ventana is a small, but friendly community. Several restaurants to enjoy and activities to entertain. Small grocery store to meet all your needs is available. I highly recommend this property and its great hosts!
