Welcome to our home in Baja! We are located on the Sea of Cortez in the peaceful village of El Cardonal, about 30 minutes north of Los Barriles and 1 ½ hours from Los Cabos airport.
The property is about 2 acres, fully enclosed, and very private. Much of the lush native vegetation has been untouched. There are 2 dwellings: the Casa with 2 bedroom suites, study, living and dining areas; and the Bodega which has a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor. The Casa and Bodega are furnished with hand made rugs, lamps, folk art, and furniture from Mexico and beyond. Each dwelling has a terrace that was designed to flow directly out from the living area and is the perfect place to enjoy your coffee with the sunrise. There is a lap pool, outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, and barbeque area as well. The gourmet kitchen in the Casa makes entertaining a pleasure. Our spa offers a relaxing way to end the evening.
We provide kayaks and paddle boards for those that are interested in exploring the coral reef at our back door. We also have a beautiful sandy beach that extends from our property south for miles. You can windsurf or kite in front of the house with your own equipment or rent it down in Los Barriles. Luis, our caretaker, can hook you up with all kinds of other activities like fishing, site seeing, horseback riding, ATV rentals, and airport transportation. Housekeeping and cooking services are available as well.
Bahia de Los Suenos is about a half hour boat ride north and makes for a great day trip if the weather is calm. Other worthwhile trips include: Cabo Pulmo (diving), Todos Santos (mission town on the Pacific side), La Paz (Malecon), and San Jose's Centro Historico.
The pool, art, and abundance of spiny cacti make our property unsuitable for young children. Well behaved pets will be considered. No smoking. Refundable deposit required.

'We are just home from a rather extraordinary experience in Baja. Thank you so very much for affording us the opportunity to enjoy a remarkable vacation that surpassed all our expectations. We all had the time of our lives. Luis was a great help and muy amable, Adriana likewise, and the village itself really started to feel like home. The people were extremely friendly, the area was charming, and the activities were terrific.'

'The trip was a dream come true. Just what I needed - feel like a new person!'

El Cardonal is Baja the way it used to be. Muy tranquilo! If you are seeking peace and quiet with modern amenities and spectacular natural beauty, then we invite you to share our secret. The coral reef out our back door is more pristine than Cabo Pulmo's and has none of the crowds. Whales, manta rays, and dolphins are frequently seen locally. Fishing boats still go out daily from our beach. Walk to town for tortillas, groceries, or tacos in the evenings.
