CASA CARDONAL - MAGNIFICENT BEACHFRONT ESTATE W/ GUEST CASITA

El Cardonal Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 1/2 bathrooms, (Sleeps 14-18)

Located beachfront on Mexico's tranquil Sea of Cortez, Casa Cardonal is an exquisite private estate with a pristine sandy beach, swimmable water, infinity pool, Jacuzzi and extensive outdoor seating and dining areas. Our guests enjoy world-class fishing, kayaking, championship golf, and ATV exploration in and around the casual fishing village of El Cardonal.

This private one acre compound is available for rental by the day (3 night minimum), week, or month.

The Casa its 4,000 square feet of dramatically open space provides spectacular views of the water and room for entertaining a crowd. The Casa includes all the modern amenities including satellite TV, a built-in stereo system, wireless internet, and a “state of the art” kitchen with wine coolers, warming drawers, 6-burner gas range, and microwave.

The 2,000 sq. ft. Casita (guest house) offers a full kitchen, living area with fireplace, and two bedrooms with en suite baths, sleeping up to 6 additional guests.

In addition to the estate itself, what sets Casa Cardonal apart is the staff that we have to serve you. Octavio will provide your transportation to and from the airport and offers numerous excursions to anywhere you might want to go in the Baja area. He also offers guided ATV tours that allow you to go much farther than you might on your own, including a trip up the arroyo to see the ancient petroglyphs.

Francesca provides catering services and makes amazing meals including all of the bounty of the sea, delicious steak dinners and, of course, traditional Mexican fare.

Mino is your onsite caretaker and the boat captain for the Casa's 25ft fishing panga. He is at your service to take you fishing, golfing (25 minute boat ride), on an ecotour to the area's best snorkeling or to Isla Cerralvo (a pristine uninhabited island with amazing shells, turtle nests and sandy beaches). Mino is an excellent fisherman. He won the Los Barriles Dorado Fishing Derby in 2005 and helped one of our guests land a 550 pound black marlin in September of 2010. It is one thing to hook a fish like this; it is another to get it into a 25ft panga!

We provide a concierge (Hector and Kathinka) to show you around the place and explain the features of the Casa and the area. Their job is to help you plan your vacation and arrange anything you need. Maria Luisa is your housekeeper and will arrive each day to make the beds, wash the dishes, and do whatever laundry you want done. You will want to stay forever!

Explore the East Cape of Baja and complete your escape to Old Mexico in the casual luxury and idyllic setting of Casa Cardonal where 'Mi casa es su casa!'

We all had a great vacation! The house was perfect! Mino, Maria and Hector were all accommodating and very helpful and friendly. This is our third VRBO home we've stayed at and by far the best house (Florida and Hawaii).

Everything was just right, thanks again!

Viva la Casa Cardonal

Casa Cardonal was the perfect place for our week long, 3 generation, 15 person family reunion in April 2013. Many thanks for your hospitality and for creating a safe and welcoming environment where we could have such a special time. We celebrated a 40th wedding anniversary, 21st and 40th birthdays, and had a celebration of life with memory lanterns on the beach for our 95th year old great-grandma who passed away in early 2013. The mariachis and piñatas arranged for us by Octavio and his family were perfect for the celebrations – folks said they’d never heard better mariachis or eaten better flan and tres leches.

Our group included ages from 8 to 78 and ranged from world travelers to folks who had never left the U.S. All felt safe, comfortable and cared for from the moment we arrived at the new terminal in Cabo to the transport to and from the airport and everything in between. Folks enjoyed kayaking, fishing, swimming, sea-shelling, walking the beach, shuffleboard, lounging, eating, drinking and making merry. Many of us were up most mornings enjoying the sunrises over the Sea of Cortez from the deck at Cardonal. Everyone commented on the kindness and friendliness of everyone we met and Octavio, Francesca, and Mino couldn’t have been more helpful – Octavio was a master fish griller and Mino helped rig the piñata for which the children among us were especially grateful.

We all took the joy and peace of Cardonal with us when we left. Hasta luego.

It really was the best vacation with friends we have ever had!

I wanted to touch base with you and let you know what an amazing time we had at Casa Cardonal! All four couples were ready to get away and relax - and that's exactly we did! We did not realize how secluded we would be but it was a great fit for us. We were thrilled to have Francesca cook for us - Maria helped as well. We fell in love with them both. One of my friends speaks fluent Spanish so we actually got to communicate with them quite well. They got to know us pretty well and we just asked them to surprise us most nights - We ate and enjoyed all 46 breakfasts and all 46 dinners! (4 couples). They even found a birthday cake for our birthday dinner :)
Octavio was so great and checked on us throughout the week. He took us on a day trip one day to Todos Santos - and I wished I had bought more candy in Los Barriles (I think that was the name). Our husbands went surfing as well... (well, kinda).
Mino took the guys fishing and helped us blow up floats and arrange our umbrella. Most days we just laid around - pool, beach, pool, beach! Grab a snack, then pool, beach. Hector found an amazing massage therapist for us - she was lovely and so good at her job! (Nancy)
The girls walked the entire beach both ways looking for shells - the guys snorkeled - Mino took the guys to snorkel on the boat one day as well.
It really was the best vacation with friends we have ever had. My husband agreed with me that we would definitely come back! Hoping to bring kids and family. We wondered what the pricing might be to stay for a month next summer.
Thank you for sharing your place with us - I can't tell you enough how much we enjoyed it!!

Pretty much perfect!

The trip and house were amazing! We had a wonderful time and absolutely loved the house. So many small things made it great – the sound system, the shuffle board court, access to the Suburban. We loved the place and our trip.

House – Was wonderful. We stayed in the master bedroom. The bed was insanely comfortable and we were very happy. I think the grounds – pool, shuffle board, grass, all the chairs etc. are the best part of the house. Just so comfortable to be there.

Amenities – Having the suburban was huge for us. We don’t really go anywhere or that far, but to just have access to go to town or Los Barriles was a big deal for us. The paddle boards were great. Lots of other little things were just great – the chairs and umbrellas already set up on the beach, the shuffleboard court, the sound system, and how little kid friendly the pool is. Those things really made the trip for us. I’ve become an Enrique Iglesias fan from listening to it for weeks at the house, which I’m not sure I’m proud of!

Dinghy – but having access to it was huge for us. It was a main draw of your house and allowed us easy fishing access without going with Mino every day. I think we still went with him 6-7 times but we also love to fish on our own. You should ask Mino about our dinghy adventure.

Mino – Was great. He sure seemed to me to be an exceptional fisherman. The boat was in great shape and he took very good care of it.

Food/cooks – We did dinner about 3x per week. The food was incredible, we loved everything they made. They did a day with us where they showed us how to make tortillas, empanadas, tamales etc. and it was awesome!

All in all, it was an amazing trip. It was pretty much perfect!

We plan to keep coming down and hope we can stay there again. Looks like October 2014 is likely the next trip but nothing set in stone. I may come even sooner, I am hoping to develop a kayak fishing trip down there for my adventure business.

Thank you again for everything. All the best!

Andy

The most relaxing place on earth

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 4, 2012

First of all, the Casa and location are amazing, the Casa is easily a multi-million dollar piece of property and is in the nicest part of the area. Every iota of the one acre lot has been landscaped; not necessarily with trees but alcoves, nooks and crannies that we have found are wonderful places to follow the sun, get out of the sun, and most of all, relax. There is also an infinity pool and outdoor jacuzzi. As I write this I’m finding it’s hard to really describe this place---to put it mildly EVERYTHING has been thought of and it is fun to choose which perfectly appointed part of the property will best match the sun’s position and our attitude/state of mind.

The energy here is that of complete relaxation; the house is located on the edge of a very sleepy village called El Cardonal. It would seem six or seven families from America decided to build on this gentle point around 2005, so the Casa is in the middle of other very nice seven figure homes on the edge of the Sea of Cortez on a white sandy beach. Each is gated and the Casa has its own care taker, Mino, who is subliminally present on the property tending the foliage, operating the grounds’ extensive accent lighting, water fountain, and pool and jacuzzi. His gentle singing or whistling announces if he will pass by, and he lives in another house on the property by the entrance. The house and grounds are also cleaned every day by Maria, who arrives mid-morning and tidies things up.

The Casa also has a full home entertainment system, including speakers throughout the house and outside, wireless internet, and a skype phone. Cell service doesn’t reach the Casa.

The people here are truly wonderful--everyone waves at you as they drive slowly by in their vehicles or ATVs, (even the Americans!) We have met locals, mostly Americans, and see them at the restaurant or in the area since we’ve been here. My ability to speak in Spanish is limited to non-existent, and I wish I’d paid more attention in high school, however, everyone seems to get by with gestures, limited Spanish words, and typically decent English. The Media Frenzy we are exposed to in America every day doesn’t seem to apply to these people. It all goes back to the relaxed attitude that seeps into your soul from the moment you arrive into El Cardonal.

There are a variety of dining opportunities; first the Casa has a beautiful, full kitchen with everything you could ask for if you’d like to cook yourself. Or, you can request a cate
