About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Casa Torotes is located on the sand of one of the most pristine beaches on the Sea of Cortez. The town of La Ribera and our beach, Playa Colorada, are still relatively off the beaten track and 2 hours from the bright lights of Cabo San Lucas. The serenity of the coastline is so captivating that time seems to slow down, and each day melts lazily into the one before. Casa Torotes can be many things: a multi-family retreat, a romantic getaway, or a fishing lodge for you and your friends.

Our home can easily accommodate 3 families. We have 3 master suites with bathrooms, featuring double sinks and walk-in showers. There is also a 'dorm room' for overflow guests. Casa Torotes also features hand-painted walls, a laundry room, a large fully equipped modern kitchen, an outdoor barbecue, a spacious dining room with seating for 12, breakfast room, day room and living room. There are 2 fireplaces in the house, as well as an outdoor fireplace. A sunny courtyard and charming cantera stone fountain complete the picture in this delightful home. Extra housekeeping services and cooking can be arranged in advance

In Baja every day brings new opportunities and adventure is at your fingertips; this can include a trip to a once secret waterfall or hot springs in the mountains, kayaking or snorkeling off Punta Colorada or down at Cabo Pulmo, surfing at Todos Santos, or kite-surfing and windsurfing in Los Barriles. However, for many of our guests, the appeal of our home is simply enjoying life by the sea and doing nothing all day except taking a walk on the beach, soaking up the sun, floating in the sea and enjoying a good book.

For the fisherman, our home is situated on one of the most enviable locations on the Sea of Cortez; the famous Roosterfish Alley runs right out front! Every summer fishermen arrive from all over the world to take on the mighty Roosterfish, one of the most notorious fighters in the fish world. These fish are caught not only by boat, but also by fly casting from shore. Each morning the fishing fleets from Los Barriles and Rancho Leonero motor near our home to deep sea fishing locations off the coast to hunt marlin, dorado, tuna, wahoo, amberjack, grouper, snapper, triggerfish, pompano and more. If you wish, you can arrange to have one of these sportfishing boats pick you up directly in front of the house or at the marina in town. Our strategic location on the sandy shore makes beach pick ups and drop offs a breeze. Offer your captain a beer or two and he may agree to clean your fish for no extra charge!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Kate and Charles live and work in Orange County in California; we have always lived near the water and enjoy most water-oriented activities. We have a son and a daughter, both of whom are married; we have 3 young granddaughters. Filling Casa Torotes with our large extended family and many water-loving friends is a dream come true for us.

Why the Owner Chose La Ribera, B.C.S., Mexico:
We took a vacation at Rancho Leonero in 1997 and loved the area. We bought our property, built our house and had it ready for occupancy by July 2000...this was long before there was a Costco or Home Depot in Cabo San Lucas! The 2 hour flight from Orange County makes it a breeze to get to the house and sink into the easy rhythms of life on the Sea of Cortez.
