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.
Amazing little casita in Cabo Pulmo!! The weather was cold and cloudy, but the warm and cozy casita kept our morale up and happy. Thanks so much for a truly remote and relaxing couple of nights!
We had a lovely time at the Garden casita in Cabo Pulmo. To me this place epitomizes heaven, waking up to the sounds of roosters crowing, watching the geckos scurry and looking up at the palm frond, palapa ceiling. The colors of the casita are cheerful. The huge garden creates a great habitat for many birds.And all within walking distance to the only coral reef in North America. Everything was very comfortable and the host is a pleasure to communicate with.
Wonderful stay in the super tranquila garden casita. Lived up to expectations and more. The garden was lovely, and reading while watching birds was a daily ritual. Host was super helpful. Directions and advance notice of everything that is provided and what you'll need were great.
I hope we can return !
Thoroughly enjoyed our return to the casita. The garden is so lovely and peaceful......just a pleasure.
This was our first trip to Cabo Pulmo. We stayed three days at Janning's casita and were completely smitten with its beautiful quaintness, cleanliness, functionality and lovely garden. We loved the feeling of being far away from the touristy feel of Cabo San Lucas. This is not the area for one looking for resort style amenities. But if you want to experience the natural beauty of this area of Baja California Sur while enjoying staying in a very comfortable little home then I think a person would be very satisfied at Janning's. The casita had everything we needed to cook basic meals and the bathroom is completely adequate. Great snorkeling nearby as well as hiking in the hills nearby. We loved lounging on the small patio while having morning coffee.
It was really, as it says, peaceful and private. Yet just a step away from the beach and a couple of restaurants.The little house and garden are very clean, comfortable and beautiful. The garden makes the atmosphere fresher, and we enjoyed the many birds and butterflies. Thank you!
Beautiful garden full of birds and little trails a great relaxing setting, Directly across the street was a small resturaunt, great friendly people. THe Artistic design of the casita was unique, a special place.
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!
