The Great Escape, is located next to our personal home, The Great Escape Ranch. The rental enjoys its own privacy while at the same time retains security from the adjacent property. It is fully furnished and equipped. There is the beach in front and the desert on each side along with the Sierra de Lagunas Mountain range as the backdrop. Incredible photo opportunities abound! Walk the 5 mile Cerritos Beach in the morning and kick back for a beautiful sunset in the evening. This is where the term laidback is the life theme!
As a young man I was fortunate to be able to travel to different tropical locations throughout the world. Growing up in Portland, Oregon, I had become aware of how much I appreciated the warm sunny tropical climates, each time I returned to the grey, wet, Oregon winters! I always knew I would find my little slice of paradise, somewhere, someday. That day came in 1999! I drove into the desert oasis known as Todos Santos, and fell in love with the area and the vibe immediately! 2 days later, I purchased the property now known as The Great Escape! It has the friendly, laid back lifestyle I had always dreamed of finding. Come find out for yourself!!!
jordon cameron purchased this house in 1999
I stayed at this house with my 3 children, ages 13, 17, and 23 in February, 2012 for 5 days. My oldest child, age 25, lives nearby and has a truck. He drove us around and up to the other area beaches and to Todos Santos. He is a surfer and has his own surf boards.
The house was very clean, cute, and actually better than the pictures reveal! The views were spectacular and it was approx 5 min or less walk to the beach. The owner was very accomodating and he has many amenities that we appreciated (beach chairs, ample beach towels, boogie board, large cooler, internet stick). The kitchen has the large bottled water cooler. We had no illnesses during our say.
The area is so peaceful and beautiful! We ate dinner at the house with friends for a total of 7 people on 2 occasions with adequate dishes and cooking utensils. We used the stove and oven, but there was also an outdoor grill available on the patio, which we never used. It looked relatively new.
I would recommend the beaches in the area, especially for surfing. The local town of Todos Santos is fun and has very good restaurants. There is a local coffee cafe, (about 5 min up the highway from the house) called "Baja Beans" and that is great! They have a Baja Beans Farmer's Market with live music on Sundays there, too. It took about 1 1/2 hours to drive from the airport in Cabo to the house. We did not spend much time in Cabo San Lucas or in San Jose Del Cabo for me to report. But there is a surf board rental shop in San Lucas where we rented an extra surf board for the 5 days for $75 USD.
The only problem? Not enough vacation days!
