Overview

San Carlos Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

“Casa Montana” on the shimmering east shore of the Sea of Cortez is our special retreat from a busy world. Located in the gated, relaxed community of Villas California, it is where Sonoran Desert meets the Sea. Just minutes away, nestles the charming, gringo-friendly town of San Carlos offering marinas, deep sea fishing adventures, a casual l8-hole golf course, an array of dining options from family owned taquerias to seafood and steak restaurants, Mexican art and crafts shopping and more.

We wanted our casa to be a Mexican-style home - and so it is! From its sturdy brick and stucco walls, its arched doorways, locally-made floor tile throughout, with colorful hand painted talavera tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. The visitor enters the property through a lush palm-filled courtyard, passing by a sparkling fountain. Upon opening the front door the magnificent, panorama view of ocean takes your breath away and the neutral colored, high walls, shimmering Moroccan dome and sultry ceiling fans create an exotic atmosphere that offers hospitality and calm to the weary traveler.

Each of the three neutral-colored bedrooms offers an inviting California king- size mattress with luxury bedding. Each also has its own bathroom with roomy, walk-in shower. Two bedrooms look into the verdant courtyard, while the master suite offers the ocean. Its occupants are lulled to sleep by the rhythmic rolling of the tide.

Four distinct terraces offer breathtaking views of the Sea, with the Baja beyond, magnificent sunsets, and the famous “Catch 22' Algodones Beach with its silky sand and the charming beach bar “Hang Out” known locally for its delicious cerviche and shrimp tostados! It’s our favorite place for lunch or just to hang out and watch the kite boarders skimming the waves on a breezy day. One terrace leads to the next with # 4 offering a relaxing siesta room “cave” with talavera -tiled cocktail bar.

We also wanted Casa Montana to provide a truly outdoor living experience and it does! Whether dining on terrace # l or 2, sitting reading on cozy # 3, or taking a siesta nap in # 4, you will enjoy daily outdoor living with the pelicans and dolphins. As our casa is on the water’s edge you can also enjoy kayaking, swimming and snorkeling right on your doorstep!

NOSTRA CASA ES SU CASA! OUR HOUSE IS YOUR HOUSE SO ENJOY!

About Ed Houck

After years of living in Montana, my wife and I traveled all over Mexico, looking for the perfect spot to build our 'Beach Home'. We found it, fell in love with the people and the area and built our home, CASA MONTANA. Please take the time to call on us to tell you about our area.

Ed Houck purchased this villa in 2008

Why Ed Houck chose San Carlos

The reason we chose this spot is because we are right on the water.

What makes this villa unique

You can fish, swim, snorkel or kayak from our patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Well we just got back from Quepos, CR and absolutely loved every minute of it. We stayed a Tulemar and it was a wonderful experience. The staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and were so nice that it was hard to believe they were being real. The panoramic views of the Pacific ocean we breath taking. The private beach was nice. The fishing for sailfish was excellent, we went with "WaveDancer". The canopy tours were awesome. If you like seafood, wow...it was great. Tulemars cafe was good, the pool was nice with a great view of the ocean. Their were howler monkeys everywhere.....it is just absolutely paradise. I could sit here and go on and on, but ya'll need to experience it for yourselves!!!! PURA VIDA!!!!!

What Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to San Carlos. We had a wedding to attend. I had never heard of San Carlos before and was skeptical about going there. We just booked 3 days. After arriving and being shown in by Cesar, the house manager, we wished we could have stayed longer. The home, with its multi- level terraces all facing the Sea of Cotez was fantastic. Every room in the home was done to perfection. There was never a time that we not "just smiling". We are planning on returning next year. Can't wait.

Owner's Response: Cesar said he knew from the time you walked in the front door, that you were hooked on Casa Montana. He said every time he ran into you guys, on the beach, once in town shopping and your last night when he had drinks with you on the rooftop terrace, you would return. Just let us know when your ready.

Best House Ever!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures can never do this house justice. It is paradise on earth! The owners really know how to design and decorate, it is such an amazing house, I've never seen anything like it! Beautiful water to snorkel in with rich sea life literally just steps away from the house, sunsets that feed your soul. The Soggy Peso bar and La Salsa Beach Bar are just a walk down the beach and have great food, music and a fun atmosphere to meet and make new friends. I can't wait for my next trip down!

Best sunsets ever

  • 5 of 5
The view from this house is spactular. Watching the sunsets from the terrace was so beautiful. The house is right on the sea and it was so nice to hear the water and see the Pelicans diving right in front of you. The house is very Mexican in design and well equipped. Beds were super comfortable. This is a special place.

Perfect Mexican House on the Beach

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place this was for a vacation. The house is very Mexican in design and finishing but fully modern. Its right on the beach and we had snorkeling and swimming right outside the front door. We enjoyed rooftop dining and happy hour every evening was a delight watching the sun set into the Sea of Cortez. The beds were super comfortable!
