Your apartment is located below our residence. The house is terraced to provide privacy without obstructing the panoramic view of the Sea of Cortez.
A gentle breeze that carries the distant rhythm of the ocean only a few minutes stroll away, will set a fresh and tranquil pace for your time here.
Slow down, relax and take your time. Hear the birds sing their colorful songs or watch the majestic whales gracefully churn the sea while teaching their young. Explore! Our home will provide comfort.
Your apartment is well equipped with all the comforts of a simple home. No, there is no TV, nor telephone, but WiFi will keep you connected to the world.
Aside from the bathroom, there are no interior doors. The spacious shower can accommodate two people and the vanity/wash basin is in the hallway. In the bedroom you'll find a queen size bed and in the living room two couches, one folding out into a double bed, and the other easily converted into a single. Linnens are provided and will be changed every two weeks, should you stay longer.
A large dining room table seats four as well as the table on your private large patio. The patio faces the sunrise and the ocean, and is also equipped with two chaise lounges.
You have your own private entrance and can come and go as you wish. A tight steel entry door will provide plenty security, should it be of concern. All windows are double glazed and equipped with bug screens and roller shutters. The shutters are operable from inside and adjustable to let in as little or as much light and air as you desire. Your space is completely bug prove - if you keep them at bay - for your very comfort.

I've been coming to Baja for over 27 years and might know a thing or two - maybe even three - that are of interest to you. Please feel free to ask, I'm always willing to share the bits I know.
If time and circumstances permit, you might also talk me into preparing a meal in the wood fired pizza oven in the upper courtyard for you. I'm actually not a bad cook. •(Prices vary according to menu.).
We have a number of games and beach toys (bogey boards, snorkel & masks, etc.) at our home, you are welcome to borrow with a small deposit. There are even a few toys for smaller kids in the mix.
•Please be cautious swimming, especially with children, as there can be occasional rather strong currents!•
- The arid desert climate of the Southern Baja peninsula in the winter (December - March) is about 20 - 25ºC (or 75 - 85ºF) during the day and can drop to around 10 - 15ºC (55 - 65ºF) at night. Usually it's also fairly breezy, sometimes even windy. Clouds may roll in and stick around, but not often. Rarely does it rain. So bring appropriate clothing!
- Temperatures rise toward mid-March and 30 - 35ºC ( about 90ºF) become more common, all the way into June. Nights are typically around 15 - 20ºC (60 - 70ºF).
- June is the month when things start to heat up and humidity is felt more as well. Then daytime temperatures can be in the upper 30º's C (up to 100ºF) and continue like this all through summer.
- Hurricane season can start as early as June, but the main season is September through October.
- November temperatures and humidity gradually start to come back down. Mid-November and mid-March climates are very similar to each other and most comfortable for us Northerners. Especially at night, as there is always a little breeze that is mostly absent during the summer months.
• We are flexible, but please let us know ahead of time if you have special needs and/or need to deviate from any rules!
• Special check-in arrangements may be made for later arrivals. (This is rare and mostly concerns our European guests, who's planes tend to arrive rather late.)
• For your child's safety we recommend careful supervision! Alternatively this may not be the best location for you, as the property borders a sharp drop-off into a deep arroyo! ‡—This limitation is born out of our love for children!—‡
• Smoking is permitted on the patio.
• This home is off the grid. Our electricity comes from the sun, and propane gas and water is trucked in. There are no wires or pipes servicing our community. ‡—Please be energy conscientious!—‡
• Hairdryers, curling irons, clothing irons, electric irons of any kind are better left at home, as they would deplete the available electricity in minutes.
• If something is broken or broke on you, please notify us right away!
• Prior your departure (check-out time is 11:00AM), please wash your dishes, broom-clean the apartment and load up your waste for disposal in town. ‡—We take this requirement seriously!—‡
I was born in Germany and emigrated to the USA in my twenties. The beautiful Northwestern US has been my home base for a long time, but frequent travels have taken me to a great number of some of the most beautiful spots (Scotland, Spain, Yugoslavia, Santorini/Greece, the Seychelles, South Africa, Mauritius, Cuba, to name a few) around the globe.
After having first visited Baja many years ago and fallen in love with it, I now call it my home. In all my travels I have yet to find a place that is as accessible and yet has remained largely unspoiled, and in such pristine condition, as this spot on the globe! The climate could hardly be any better either. There is so much to love about this country, and the Mexican people as a whole are very welcoming, engaging, helpful and warm! Their children are polite, respectful, very well behaved and adored by their parents and extended family! I find it very easy to feel at home here, almost in spite of the trauma that is rattling parts of this Nation to the core.
Let me share this experience with you!
