‘Abandon comforts of civilization and return to the wild, the wild west on Baja California’s East Coast, north of Punta Chivato.’
Sanctuary for the wildlife enthusiast, in-tune with raw nature with the benefits of abundant marine life, migratory mammals, birds, and ducks in delicate desert-marine eco system. Pristine beachcombers paradise! Daylight access is off-road vehicles only. Nearest town for store and gas station (if open) are 12 miles away at Punta Chivato. Same area has dirt airstrip for smaller planes.

House is ‘in progress’ or essentially a ‘bare house.’ Live off the grid with solar panels, batteries, propane and generators. Conserve water and electricity! Ask precisely what to expect and not to expect since the washing machine, oven, batteries and solar panels did not work during occupancy. No water (water pump), no power since solar panels had no sun. Showering, washing dishes and clothes after 10 am and before 4 pm allows sun-time to charge batteries for water-pump. If potable water storage below the kitchen floor is one-third or less, needs topping up otherwise suction not effective due to pump location above tank rather than below.

Limited kitchen and pantry; come armed with basic supplies, TP, PT, dish washing soap, sink soap, washing machine soap, sugar, salt, pepper, seasonings, oil, butter, milk, fruit, food stuffs, etc. Small propane frig available that will freeze items. Ask if solar panels are working and if any upgrades have been made to house contents and surrounding property. Was fortunate neighbors were in residence who hooked up their vehicle to house batteries for temporary water and electricity. Would recommend a caretaker be on property.

Tranquility, allows one to be at peace with oneself having the potential to be self-sufficient. Activities a step back in time, but a step above camping. If you fall in love with the location, a new modest development is underway – Dolphin Cove Eco-village a private sustainable community with off-the-grid infrastructure promoted to be among ‘the greenest homes on the planet’ with net zero energy. You too could own a piece of paradise.

Owner's Response: This reviewer was not charged for her stay due to her problems/complaints. She paid zero.
Why is she writing a review 9 months after her stay? She did not partake in 4wheeling, snorkeling, boating, fishing, swimming etc. If it was so terrible why did she stay 11days.
A friend just spent a week at the house then I spent one and all systems were working great
Weather and area was fantastic as usual. Water, electric, stove, propane, hot water, wifi, etc. we're all working. Some people love the secluded beautiful spot and
Others hate it, guess they want a first class hotel next to a mall. We have a caretaker that cleans, changes sheets, helps with any problems or requests, ie arranges fishing trip, cave painting tour, kyacking etc.
