About Sra. McKinney
I grew up in North Lake Tahoe, skiing, climbing, riding horses, and generally running amok with my friends. I fell in love with The Baja many years ago, and am incredibly lucky that I got to build my dream house in La Ventana. I spend more time on the west coast now, and I miss The Baja, but: I''m happy that other like-minded folk can enjoy my house as much as I have over the years; it holds much laughter and happy memories.
Sra. McKinney purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Sra. McKinney chose La Ventana
I built this house so that I could be close to the extraordinary Sea Of Cortez, and all the glee that is in and around it. If you are addicted to kiteboarding, or want to be, this is the place for you. There isn't a safer and more stable place to learn, or get more proficient. When I first get back to the house after a long absence, I am stunned that I get to have such an elegant, spacious, gorgeous home. I look at these beautiful hardwood doors/drawers and feel like a queen. You'll see what I mean when you see the place. : )
What makes this Villa unique
I love it that the house is on the top of the hill overlooking South Beach, and also love it that it's at the end of the road. It's private; I own the lot next door, so neighbor intrusion is minimal. I love watching the sunset from the rooftop terrace---the same terrace that, facing the other direction, I watch the sun come up in the morning. It's lovely to relax (after a full day of beach fun) on the king-sized bed that lives on the 40' terrace overlooking the Cardon forest. If you've not enjoyed outside showers, you'll get to enjoy that here. And, if you have your dog with you, you'll be glad that the property is fully fenced and safe. This is a dog-friendly location.

Casa Oregano was beautiful, clean, and serene, and very welcoming of my beloved dog. The views of the island, and the sea of cardons are extraordinary. I would not hesitate to stay there again the next time I visit La Ventana
Beautiful property, really fun town, great owner
Our first impression of the house was how cool it looked in the dark with all of the accent lighting to help us find our way. Two large well appointed bedrooms, a large bathroom and laundry facilities rounded out the first floor. The outside stairs lead to a large kitchen and sitting area on the second floor. Decks are on first, second and third levels to either catch or avoid the sun. Amazing views in every direction allowed us to enjoy every sunrise and sunset. Great neighbors helped us find bike trails. Casa Oregano is just a 5 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to shops and a 10 minute bike ride to the South trails. The owner Sra. McKinney went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed to enjoy the house and La Ventana. She answered all of our texts quickly and cheerfully. Her home is beautiful and we will definitely be back, hopefully for a longer visit next time. La Ventana is an interesting town with a lot of fun activities and restaurants to keep you entertained. If you want a stress free rental, I highly recommend Casa Oregano!

Thank you for your kindness! It was wonderful hosting you & your happy family, especially since we all seem to be like-minded, nature-loving folk! We will look forward to your next visit, hopefully, sooner than later.
John and Marcy, thank you again for being so lovely! Sra. McK

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Oregano for a quick "Baja Getaway" and we loved it. LOVE LA VENTANA, and LOVE Casa Oregano. I have stayed many places in this region and trust me when I say this one is my absolute favorite!
It is probably one of the nicest places in La Ventana; it’s at the top of a hill, and the design is my favorite kind of elegant. This place has been beautifully finished and furnished by owners that have an aesthetic reflective of our own. (That's a polite way of saying they have great taste!) The views are spectacular, the garden is lovely and meditative, and the kitchen is made for those of us that love to cook. Our hosts made sure that we had everything we needed, and were easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions about anything.
It’s just what we wanted: easy to find, close to everything. It was perfect: close to the beach (he's a kiter) and close to Baja Joe's, where we went for morning lattes/breakfast. There's another place (Blue Marlin I think?) that is even closer and has great food/easy to get to; we walked there in a few minutes.
We loved coming home after a fun day at the beach and walking into this gracious home. Everything is COMFORTABLE, and the views are amazing. We really enjoyed watching the technicolor sunsets on the rooftop terrace while cocktaling until dinner. Same goes for the sunrises---breathtaking.
Thanks again for all the hospitality, and we will be back! JS”
We loved this property! Best place we have found in La Ventana.
Wow! We love this house. Just finished a wonderful stay at Casa Oregano and we will definitely be back. The house is amazing. It is nestled in a cardon forest on a hilltop with great views of the sea and island, and surronded by cardon cacti and the mountains. It has a 3d floor terrace with 360 view, and is the perfect place to have a morning coffee and watch for the windline to come in over the bay.
Toraun was friendly and helpful, and gave us great local info. The house was well equipped and was always the meeting place for us and our friends. It is a short walk to the beach to kite or Baja Joes for an after kite brew. It has privacy and a secure fence surrounds the property so we felt comfortable leaving our gear on the patio. The hot outdoor shower rocks!
This is the best house I have stayed in during all my years in La Ventana. It will be where I stay from now on. John
Kiteboarding/windsurfing MECCA. Wonderful local food, Farmers Market on Thursday mornings, wonderful people, so much fun it's almost illegal. To enjoy the massive collection of mountain biking trails, here is a new mountain bike shop nearby where you can rent by the hour or day. Plus, Ventana Windsports rents brand new mountain bikes. Truly a dream vacation.
