About Fred Carpenter
I am a retired Canadian living the dream on a beach I've been coming to for over 20 years. Originally from east coast, I moved west in late 70s. I've traveled to over 60 countries and have been riding motorcycles all my life. More into off-road in Baja, I still love a good road trip. I've owned an RV for over 20 years now and that's how I found Los Cerritos in the late 80s. I love the sunshine and the great climate we have at Los Cerritos, year round. With the Sierra Laguna mountains behind me and the Pacific ocean in front of me, I realize it's a slice of paradise. Watching whales November thru March from my deck is amazing, and the stars at night are heavenly.
Fred Carpenter purchased this Studio in 2000
Why Fred Carpenter chose El Pescadero
People are very friendly in this area, and if you simply want to kick back and enjoy the tranquility, you've found the best option right here. Safe & secure, free from noise and hustle-bustle, this is a gorgeous getaway vacation home. Make some memories in your very own slice of paradise. There is a convenience store across the road and a delicious locally owned restaurant next door from it that prepares authentic cuisine. Right across the street is a uniquely themed bar/restaurant named Art & Beer.
What makes this Studio unique
This property was built with the planet in mind and is entirely eco-friendly. All power is solar and all water is trucked in, which makes it a unique and valuable experience without giving up many of the luxuries of a resort. The hot water is unlimited and on-demand - excellent for showering. There is a private beach, secure beach access. Internet is High-Speed unlimited Wi-Fi. For any further questions please ask myself or my housekeeper and we'll be happy to help. As well, since I am familiar with the surrounding area and businesses I will be more than happy to help suggest or arrange guided tours and other activities based on availability and the season.

Our Stay at Cerittos beach!
Fred is an excellent host as far as communicating with us. His directions were spot on. The studio apartment was great and everything we needed was there. Some things you should know: Fred's dogs will also greet you. They are friendly enough but if you are not a dog person, this would be a suprise when you get there. The bed was comfortable, but could use a couple extra pillows. The solitude was great. The only hot shower was the outside shower, but that was not a problem since there was no one staying in the upstairs unit. (who would have had a great view!!) Would like to have an electric coffe pot. if you plan to stock up for the week on groceries, the fridge is pretty small, so don't buy too much. We had an issue in that we lost a cell phone while we were there... Fred tried and tried to help when he really didn't have to. We never found it but he did try to help us after we had already flown home. A great stay - even tho it was much to cool and rough for us to swim, just being on the beach was wonderful. The sunsets were amazing too!
Lovely studio on the beach
Amazingly inexpensive studio with kitchen overlooking Cerritos beach! You can hear the waves ! Fred is a great guy, laid back with 2 sweet dogs that add to the home feelings. He knows the area and how to get around, get the best exchange rate, and buy organic food! Hope to be back.
Solitude and Beauty
My husband and I spent a week at Studio Gaia away from the cold and snow at home. The space had everything we needed. After a stop at Mega, we were able to fix most of our meals at the studio. There is a cook top, a bar sized refrigerator and all the essentials for cooking in the unit. Fred lives on the property and was always available if we needed anything or had questions. This property is directly on the beach, and there is literally no one else in either direction except for a stray walker with their dog. We had several bonfires while we were there in the evenings after sunset over the Pacific. There are palapas, hammocks, some toys and games for relaxation on all those warm, cloudless days. Everything was very clean and well maintained. All of the furniture covers, bedding and towels are washed and line dried after each guest. There are 2 larger rentals on the property, so it would be great for families. This property is totally fenced and secure. We plan to go back again next winter!
Nice getaway right on the beach!
We had a lovely stay at studio gaia. You will have the entire beach to yourself and we watched whales playing in the water a couple mornings. Fred provides everything you could want for a beach adventure. There are surfboards, boogie boards, wood for a fire, beach games, and many options for shade, hammock, and lounge chairs. We had a little trouble finding the place at first. The shower was a little temperamental and was hard to get the temperature to stay frequent. Also be aware that this is on the bottom level of a two story. All in all the stay was great and we had a wonderful vacation. Thanks Fred!
Amazing on beach location with a friendly host
We loved our stay away from it all! Had the beach to ourselves most of the time. Fell asleep to the sound of crashing waves.
Great Location with Amazing Ocean views
We loved our stay at Studio Gaia, so hard to leave this beautiful place!! Fred was always quick and prompt with emails and very caring owner and helpful with any questions or requests. The location is right on the beach can't beat that! I love hearing the ocean and watching the whales and the beautiful sunsets. We would love to stay here next time but we aren't sure yet when will be back, hopefully this year though.
Last but not least, we enjoyed the company of the dogs my favorite was Lucy :-)
Nearby is the township of El Pescadero and 10 minutes further North, you'll find the slightly larger town of Todos Santos. Excellent restaurants, friendly locals, safe and accommodating. Plenty of wonderful natural spots all around that are great for exploring. Cabo San Lucas is just a quick 45 minutes south if you'd like to explore the marina, shopping centers and exciting night life ! Enjoy all the freedom that Baja has to offer, right here.
