Casa Ventanas del Mar, a beautiful Baja beach retreat is located steps from the tranquil Sea of Cortez, in the area of Baja know and the east Cape. It is about 1 and1/2 hours north of the airport of San Jose del Cabo, and about two hours south of la Paz. Built around a courtyard in the colonial style is it perfect for two couples and a couple of kids. With three bedrooms and two baths, it sleeps six people in comfort and the floor plan provided maximum privacy with each bedroom having it's own entrance. This house is perfect for those that want a relaxing vacation unhampered by hoards of tourists. If you love to swim, fish, Kayak, Snorkel, kite surf, or just lay by the pool and work on your tan, this is your dream vacation spot. With nothing but the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep at night, you will fell relaxed and refreshed by the end of your stay.
There are a couple of basic restaurants in town, but you can also have dinners catered by local chefs for around 14 dollars per person. We will help you make the arrangements before you arrive if you want dinner ready for you that first night. You can also arrange fishing and whale watching trips from a purveyor right in El Cardonal. Boats leave from the beach in front of our house. The man across the street runs a taxi service so it could not be more convenient.
a three bedroom house with a pool. The house sleeps 6 people comfortably.
Interaction with Guests
None as we are not on the premises. We are available via email most times, if there are questions or concerns. We have a manager who will visit daily to help with incidentals, arrange fishing, catering, etc.
A real Mexican Village, quiet, close to nature. Not a tourist destination. Enjoy interacting with the local neighbors if you chose, or enjoy your solitude, and observe the abundant sea life from the patio as you sip your evening margarita.

There is a cab company run by our neighbor across the street. He will pick you up from the airport. Or you can rent a car.
Other Things to Note
All bedrooms are air conditioned. Heating is available for the pool in the winter but there is an extra charge, based on how much heat you use. Most of the year it is not necessary but might be Dec-February.
No more than 6 people. Please replace any staples and paper products that you use.
Amazing house located far away from touristic areas right in front of the beach. The house and swing pool are beautiful and well preserved.
Luis and Blas, the housekeepers showed up in the morning just to make sure that everything was ok and our needs were satisfied.
The only negative note was the Internet, we were there for a week, some of us had to work and was very important for us to be able to check our emails. Unfortunately Internet never worked and there is no phone signal in the whole village where the house is located.
Apart from this, the house is really nice and the housekeepers are kind and devoted to make your stay the perfect vacation.
We have fixed the internet problem, caused by corroded equipment (one of the down sides of having a house right on the beach) .We had the receiver replaced and are now back on line. BTW, there is a cell phone tower in the town of El Cardonal. The service is through Movistar, and therefore does not work with some US cell phones. There is also service at the Hotel Punta Pescadero which is just 10 minutes by car from the house. Not ideal but good in a pinch. We are sorry for any inconvenience the outage caused.
Generally nice place but the fridge wasn't working when we got there and was out for 24 hours. Was eventually replaced with a temporary 70s style fridge, but half our time there was spent worrying about food issues as a result.
Otherwise the place was nice. right on the beach, quiet, and well stocked!
We are very sorry for the inconvenience that Jon and his wife suffered as a result of the refrigerator outage. Initially we were told that the problem was minor, and that it would be fixed before the guests arrived, but it turned out to be more significant than we originally thought. Our property manager supplied an ice chest immediately, and a replacement refrigerator within 24 hours with one that worked fine. This was the best we could do under the circumstances. We also offered the guest a day of whale watching with a local friend who is a marine biologist, studying the behavior of the humpbacks that frequent our area.. This he did not accept, but it was offered as a way to make amends for the inconvenience.
The refrigerator is now in good working order, as are the other appliances in the home, all of which are less than ten years old. We always strive to create the experience that we would like to have when we travel to a new place. But things sometimes happen than are beyond our control, and then we do our best to resolve them as quickly as possible.

About the Host, Marilyn And Alan
We are a retired couple with an empty nest and a big house. I was formerly a realtor and have a background in the apparel business. My husband was a general contractor. We are active and engaged in the community and love to help our guests get the most out of the Bay Area. We also love to travel and try to make our house the place we would most like to stay when away from home. In other words, a welcoming and accommodating environment where you can feel at home.
" My wife and myself stayed with Alan and Marilyn's place four nights and it was all a very comfortable and relaxing experience. The house is beautiful inside and out with a breakfast nook/kitchen overlooking a beautifully landscaped garden. The house is located in an upscale and quiet neighborhood in Alameda with the dead end street towards the Bay water. Location is convenient to all places in the Bay areas with easy commute to San Francisco, El Cerrito, Berkeley. We would certainly love to stay with them when we get the opportunity to travel back to San Francisco. Thanks Al and Marilyn!"Max and Ligaya S
