About this listing
This little gem is a two minute walk to the beach - a wide, beautiful, & virtually deserted - lovely for swimming. Yet it is in the center of town, steps away from restaurants and outdoor activity providers. And totally solar-powered too!
This private little house (casita) with kitchenette is secluded and safe, and less than 2 minutes walk to the beach and restaurants.
-Queen bed with 100% cotton sheets
-Futon sofa that converts to a bed, suitable for a child or 2 travelers who don't want to share a bed! (let us know if you need it set up)
-Porch for sitting & dining, with a garden view
-Fully equipped kitchenette with gas stove and small refrigerator.
-Totally solar powered
-Off-street, secure parking
We happily offer you the use of beach towels, some snorkel gear (mask & fins), a cooler and boogie boards.
When the main house is rented by someone else we ask that you respect their privacy, and that they respect yours.
Interaction with Guests
Our host in Cabo Pulmo will meet you when you arrive. He is a wealth of information about the area, things to do, places to go. He is available throughout your stay, but does not live on the property.
There may be other guests in the main house which is on the same property. You will share the driveway entrance with other guests, if any.
Cabo Pulmo is famous for its coral reef with world-class scuba diving & snorkeling. There are many beaches nearby, most of them are practically deserted. Other activities include kayaking and whale watching. Although Cabo Pulmo is located in the Cabo Pulmo Marine Reserve where fishing is not allowed, fishing trips can be arranged nearby.
Cabo Pulmo is mostly vacation homes. There is lots to do here if you love ocean activities, and several restaurants, but almost no stores. There are several good restaurants in town. You will have to shop for groceries before coming to Cabo Pulmo.
Most people rent a car to get here because there is no public transportation or buses into Cabo Pulmo. Taxi service can be arranged to and from the airport, but is about as expensive as renting a car for a week. In town, everything is within walking distance, though the best snorkeling beach is a 10 minute drive out of town.
Other Things to Note
Cabo Pulmo is one and a half (1.5) hours from the Los Cabos airport - however there is no bus service into Cabo Pulmo. You will need your own transportation.
NO BLOW DRYERS or HAIR DRYERS ALLOWED (sorry to yell, but it is very important). The house is completely solar powered, and dryers require too much concentrated energy. They can seriously damage the solar equipment. You will lose your security deposit if you use them.
-No smoking indoors.
- Well behaved dogs may be acceptable, but must be approved of at the time of renting. Extra, one-time $20 fee.
- All guests (and pets) must be disclosed at the time of renting.
-Please wash all dishes, leave them out to dry, leave furniture where you found it, and leave the key inside with the door locked and windows closed when you leave.
About the Host, Janning
We love Baja California, and especially Cabo Pulmo, because it's quiet, relaxing, and way off the beaten path. The water is warm, the surf is excellent, scuba diving is extraordinary, the food is outstanding, and the people are friendly. This little casita is on a larger property that is our dream house, our someday retirement house.
We both work in agriculture. Scott is manager of a vegetable seed production company and I do organic inspections. We live in Chile at the moment, but are looking forward to coming back to Baja.
We have a wonderful couple, Karl and Kimmie, who will welcome you to the casita and make sure you have everything you need and all your questions are answered. And don't worry if you don't speak Spanish...they are from the US and speak perfect English!
