This charming house is perched on the hill overlooking the break at Shipwreck's Beach. It's amazing panoramic view is one of a kind. It's easily accessible roof is an ideal spot to watch the surf or spend hot summer nights. Shipwrecks has great waves to surf when they're rolling in...great beaches, swimming and wind surfing when they're not. The desert meets the sea here so there's burros and sea turtles on the beach, and cactus, wildflowers and beautiful arroyos to explore. The neighborhood is a pleasant mix of Mexican ranchers & fishermen, and local gringos & surfers. The house has one main room about 14' x 16' with a double bed. Indoor bathroom & shower. No kitchen as yet, but we can provide you with an ice-chest & place to store your snacks. As well as a firepit & area to do light outdoor cooking.Surrounding the house is a thatched porch area, so there's lots of shade & room for extra bunks, hammocks etc. if you're traveling with a larger group. Coffee, towels & bedding, drinking water and WiMAX/WiFi all included in price, as well as parking.
With a day or so advance notice breakfast is also available 'til noon, as well as lunches and/or dinners. We hope to meet you soon! Elena & León
We stayed in the surf casita which is about 150 feet from the home of Elena and Leon. It was perched up on a embankment over the sea.
The surfers love the point below and they surfed all day. There was a nice breeze that came across the house. The sound of the waves is wonderful.
Elena and Leon are lovely people and very helpful with suggestions prior to the trip and also we were there. I would like to go back right now.
Wow! L'emplacement est tout simplement unique. Tout dans la description était très honnête et nous avons beaucoup aimé la présence des hôtes à proximité puisque le lieu est assez reculé de la ville. Le rooftop est la cerise sur le gâteau. J'aimerais certainement retourner rencontrer Élena et Leon qui ont tant à nous apprendre.
Merci pour cette expérience.
Our stay at the Surf Casita was wonderful. Elena and Leon are great as well as their friends and their lovely daughter who was visiting. The views on the website don't do it justice ! How great to wake in the morning to the sweeping view of Ship Wreck Beach and its melodic waves. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility ; the privacy ; the magnificent whales ; the menagerie of birds ; the variety of domestic animals roaming about ;delicious meals and the genuine hospitality of Leon and Elena (and company) Thank you so much for the experience of such a healing place and the opportunity to experience Mexico in a natural way. Truly a gem.
Great house, wonderful stay. Everything we had hope for in a secluded beach get away.
This was the third time I've stayed at one of the two properties managed by Elena and Leon and I've never had anything but a great time while surfing all day at the break directly in front of the casita, drinking a few cold cervezas and enjoying the Baja desert/Sea of Cortez views. As always, Elena and Leon provided my friend and me with everything we needed to get away from the crowds of sunburned tourists in the Cabo area. I simply can't get enough of the seclusion and uncrowded surf out front of this house -- in fact, I'm heading back down there with my dad in a week for some more south swell! Looking forward to seeing Elena and Leon once again!
We had an AMAZING time here! So beautiful and so restorative for my soul to wake up with the sounds of the waves!!! Charlie and I are adventurers so this was the perfect spot for us during our spontainous last minute Baja trip! Wouldnt have been as awesome had we not stayed here and Leon and Elena even let us borrow snorkel gear which was such a wonderful part of our adventure!!!
Thanks So much Leon and Elena!
We loved staying in our casita by the ocean. Leon and Elena were so welcoming and more than willing to help answer our questions. We enjoyed sipping coffee with them and enjoying the view. Elena's meals were excellent and she's so knowledgeable about the history of the area. We loved her stories. If you are looking for simple and secluded we would highly recommend pauper's paradise!

We're a couple of lucky misfits whose priorities are to stay healthy and happy. We enjoy good company, good food, and keeping life sweet and simple. Leon is a tequila connoisseur and crafts redwood surfboards. Elena is a bread baker and stargazer. We think that you'll enjoy our rustic paradise and look forward to meeting you!
