POOLSIDE PRIVACY WHERE THE GROWING FIELDS MEET THE BEACH

El Pescadero Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 Bedrooms,4 half baths,2 full bath, one double outdoor shower (sleeps 10-12)

Villa Del Faro Baja is listed in the '08 Baja Moon Traveler's directory as the only family style villa in the area. We are a unique Baja residence with a private salt pool, hot tub and thrilling 27' water slide for all ages! Our villa is surrounded by growing fields of basil and calla lilies, yet 200 yds from beautiful, deserted Gavilan beach. Our location is ideal in that we are between two of the best surf breaks in Baja, Cerritos and San Pedrito, a 7 minute drive to each. Cerritos Beach Club offers several casual dining choices directly on the best swim beach in Baja. You can take surf lessons or just watch the surfers as they amaze you with their airborn tricks.

If you'd prefer to have quiet time by the pool in the shade,watch your children play on the trampoline, shoot basketball on the deck, play horse shoes or have some games on our new bocce ball court. The fibre optic colors at night surrounding the pool and hot tub accent our outdoor fireplace, kitchen and dining area. This is where most of your group will hang out each evening. We also offer a large indoor family room with a full modern kitchen, table seats 12. This gathering spot has a 52' flat screen TV w cable and a pool table. Our ping pong table is always a hit, day or night, for fun after the beach. If you prefer some nap time, there are seven hammocks throughout the property, with mountain and ocean views.

This compound is the vision of a master builder, originally conceived as his family retreat. This a casual place that feels like a real home, not a hotel.

Escape from the touristy Cabo condo scene and lay back by your private pool without having to go anywhere....

GREAT PROPERTY RENTAL FOR FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
David's property is ideal rental for families of all ages. We held a cousins and their family reunion the week of Christmas week at the Villa; The Villa is a creation from a master builder,who had put a lot of thoughts in the layout and renewal energy. As parents of young children, we appreciate the details such as having 5 gal drinking water dispensers, dish and laundry soaps, paper towels, toilet papers available through out the property. David was available onsite through out the stay to make sure that everything was working and to answer our questions, and at the same time he was sensitive to our need for privacy. The property has everything for everyone. We had a large group, ranging from 18 months to 70 years old. Everyone felt they had their own privacy and had fun with the family. I highly recommend having dinner catered the first night by David's staff. David had hot food and the hot tub waiting for us the first night. His ground keeper also arranged fishing charters. We do not like resorts and this quiet farm community provided the perfect ideal beach vacation destination. The Villa is surrounded by Basil and Cherry tomatoes farms. We loved the quaint but yet comfortable setting. The kids loved the beach and thought the drive over the hills to get to the beach was an adventure. e ate most of our meals in so the outside bar, pool, and kitchen was great. We plan on recommending this property to our friends and will return with friends and families. We gave it five stars because it met all all our needs and plus more.

A STUPENDOUS HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Villa Del Faro for six days with my wife and my 20-year-old daughter. It was one of the best vacations I've had in a long time. The owner, David Raitt, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Unlike many places I've stayed, the furnishings, pool, buildings, and rooms were as nice as they looked in the photos. The buildings were all built by the owner, who is a professional builder, and his pride in his profession is obvious throughout.

I'd been to Mexico, but never to southern Baja. I found the locals to be very pleasant and welcoming. There is also a large expatriate community, which means it is possible to get a good cup of coffee. Although I speak fluent Spanish, a surprising number of the locals speak English, more so than on the Mexican mainland.

The buildings at Villa del Faro have a distinct Mexican flavor, are easy on the eyes, and work well. The hot tub was hot and the pool was cool. We were there for a Wednesday afternoon volleyball and music party which was great fun.

My only complaint about the whole trip had to do with the surf. I'm a surfer, and there are two good breaks within a couple of miles of the Villa ... but the surf gods are cruel, they love to toy with men's plans, and as a result there was only a couple of feet of surf for the six days I was there. Of course, the day after I left the surf went up to six feet, so I'm sure it'll be better for your holiday.

But of course, Villa Del Faro doesn't rule the surf. I know that, because if they did it would have been one of the many things that David Raitt would have worked on until it was perfect, six foot every day with an offshore breeze.

Oh, yeah, I saw a whale cruising by on its trip north. The Villa is only a few blocks from a lovely beach. and the whales go by twice a year on their annual migration to Alaska ... awesome.

Overall? I give the highest marks to Villa del Faro and to the owner.

CHRISTMAS IN BAJA

  • 5 of 5
We spent a glorious 10 days over the Christmas and New Year holidays. We had extended family in our group ranging in age from 10 to 54. The villa is a perfect lodging option for such a range of ages. When not surfing or swimming at nearby Cerritos beach, the kids passed the days playing pool inside or playing ping pong outside. The salt water pool while chilly (we elected not to avail ourselves the option to pay for the heat) equipped with exhilarating water slide followed by the warm jacuzzi was also a favorite pastime. There is a horseshoe pit and volleyball court on the property. The outside kitchen was home to afternoon blender drinks, while the grill and rotisserrie were handy for cooking dinner for a group our size. The outside space is ideal for sunbathing while also providing adequate shade cover. There are many places to congregate and the firepit and small raised fireplace at the outside dining area make for magical evening spots.The villa has everything you need for cooking and the towel supply was ample. It was key that we had a washer and dryer available to us and the outside shower had great water pressure. We were delighted to have iPod players and wifi available.
We did have some issues with water supply but the problem was wrestled to the ground quickly by the available, competent,and gregarious caretaker. There are also a few beach chairs and umbrellas for guests.
Pescadero is a quiet residential neighborhood with a surf break on the far side of the mile plus beach. There is a great Internet cafe, Baja Beans (closed Mondays) about 1 mile away...awesome pastries and coffee drinks. There are a few local eateries that are a great option if you do not want to travel into Todos Santos.

PARADISE IN BAJA MEXICO

  • 5 of 5

     
     
 Stayed at the villa scouting locarions for a yoga retreat . I truly fell in love with the villa and  this area of baja no stress just relaxation .  I appreciated the availability of Local organic vegetables and meat ,even local fishermen drive up the road by the house and honk the horn offering freshly caught seafood .  
The villa itself is so large and accommodating, The owner really thought of everything.
My days started with yoga on the large deck upstairs over the main house . followed by a dip in the pool  The pool itself is amazing and going down the slide into the pool can make anyone feel like a 8 year old . then i would cruise down to the organic espresso bar that had opened recently at the end of the road with a variety of quiches and scones that were so amazing I had to take a few to go for the late risers . 
Then off to the beach Los  Cerritos is just down the road and is the best swimming and surf beach and it's not crowded at all , i am so used to California beaches  being overcrowded . Back to the villa for more yoga ,pool ,slide, volleyball , and hot tub time .
Great restaurants to pick from in town even earthen oven pizza at the end of the road. Todos Santos is just north about 15 minutes with a great farmers market , art galleries amazing restaurants as well . 
 I stayed in the top floor of the yurt tower a creation of master builder David . So awesome loved the feel and energy of the round yurt tower room . Going to sleep at night with the sound of waves and the big round skylight gazing at the stars . Completely magical experience all around, I didn't want to leave .
I would highly recommend the villa for families or a group that is looking for their own private paradise .

A GREAT TIME

  • 5 of 5
Our group of friends had a great time relaxing by the pool and walking on the beach.
We really enjoyed the salt pool and water slide. Our kids were thrilled. When it was windy at the beach and at the nearby beach club we retreated to the privacy of our our protected and private pool area. My sons really liked playing ping pong, even at night. Dining in front of the fire next to the outdoor kitchen was wonderful. We played pool and used the indoor kitchen as well. The gas firplace was a nice touch next to the large indoor dining table which regularly sat our entire group. Just up the road in we regularly drove up and got coffees and pastries in the mornings at Baja Bean. A relaxing time was had by all and we plan on returning to Villa Del Faro Baja again.
