About this listing
First floor guest suite with private bath. Private entrance.
Halfway between Tijuana and Cabo San Lucas (in the fishing village of San Lucas), this villa has its own citrus orchard and vegetable garden. Located one mile from the Sea of Cortez, you'll have easy access to swimming, fishing, kayaking, diving, or whale watching. Outside the stone walls, the desert is yours to explore on foot or by bike. Besides the fabulous scenery, there are over 70 species of birds resident in this area. Explore UN Heritage Site cave paintings, or visit a working mine or geothermal plant near the Tres Virgines volcano.
Located ten miles south of Santa Rosalia and 35 miles north of Mulege, these towns not only have incredible charm but excellent dining. To get there, you can drive down the incredible Baja 1, one of the most beautiful drives in the world. By air, Loreto is a 2 1/2 hour drive north. Or you can fly into Guaymas and get to Santa Rosalia by ferry or air shuttle.
The owners are usually resident there from December through mid-June. If you visit then, you'll have good company, intelligent conversation, and gourmet meals. From mid-October to mid-December as well as April and May, the climate is like Hawaii. February and March often have high winds that limit outdoor activities. From June through November, you can have the whole house to yourself. The summer is a good time for fishing, and the weather is hot.
Our caretaker is a famous Mexican author who speaks perfect English, and he's there every morning to assist you. Bring your own computer, and enjoy our extensive library.
First floor bedroom with private bath accommodation only. You will be hard pressed to find such luxurious accommodations at such a reasonable price.
About the Host, Karen
Avid readers, writers, art collectors, artists and gardeners. The restoration of our home in Eugene and the construction of our stone house in Mexico are our abiding avocations/vocations. It seems that both are works in progress as are our lives. We have transitioned from participation in politics at every level to focusing more completely on writing, gardening, and working glass. After careers as professional educators and administrators we established an art gallery drawing upon our life long experience in the arts. From the art gallery we retired to a more peripatetic life living between Mexico and Eugene. We both have always been active in the nonprofit volunteer world and have moved from civic committee work to a greater emphasis on environmental issues and arts organizations. We have a cat named Stinky whom we love and a cat named Tramp who is a juvenile delinquent.
