About Barbara Weidman-Harden

From Left to Right;

Grandma Joan - 91yrs. young, Lucero - 21, Barb - 56, Maria - 19, and Charlie -75.

We live in Aromas CA, a small country town between San Jose and Monterey CA. A beautiful spot. We own our own HVAC business and pretty much work 24/7 whether we are in the States or in MX. It's pretty awesome to be working on my computer overlooking the Sea of Cortez!

Barbara Weidman-Harden purchased this house in 2004

Why Barbara Weidman-Harden chose Buena Vista

Charlie has vacationed, built and owned a house back in the 80's. He had always wanted to come back to this 'piece of paradise'. In 2004, this opportunity arose and we snatched it up! As soon as I walked towards the front doors of the house and could see right through to the Sea of Cortez I knew we had something special.........We've never regretting it! It is an amazing quaint area, friendly people and neighbors with stunning views.

What makes this house unique

Being located on the beach is so special! Also, we are located 100 yds. away from Spa Buena Vista Hotel with bar, restaurant as well as fishing boats and kayaks to rent.

Swimming, snorkeling, atv's, wind surfing and long walks on a great sandy beach is vacationing for me. During your stay you may also see nesting sea turtles, migrating whales or a friendly donkey strolling on the beach in the late afternoon. It is an amazing site!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We want to say what a lovely 10-days we had here at Casa Harden. you provided more than we even thought we needed. We were thrilled to have use of the life jackets and all the ocean and pool toys.

Your place was very comfortable and has such a peaceful, inviting feeling.

I look forward to returning here again!

Absolutely PERFECT for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here between Christmas and New Years and absolutely LOVED this house! The owners have thought of everything you need from board games and beach chairs to a fully stocked kitchen. The porch was gorgeous for sunrise every morning and even though this was the busiest time of the year for the area we almost always had the beach all to ourselves. There were lots of books and DVDs to chose from and snorkeling equipment and boogie boards, floats, chairs, umbrella and a cooler. The owners were wonderful to work with and very responsive to questions. We have stayed in more than 25 VRBO properties and this was our favorite by far!

Another great visit to the East Cape

  • 5 of 5

This is my 5th time to Casa Harden and as in the past visits the home is a great place to relax with family and friends. Barbara has done some nice improvement to the kitchen such a new stove, pans along with utensils. Josefina the Property Manager is available to assist with anything you need in the area which is a nice bonus. Thanks again and looking forward to next year.

Paradise Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed at Casa Harden. The first time we took our 3 kids, this time we did a couples get away with family (4 adults). It felt like coming back home, but in paradise. The house is very clean and it has all of the comforts of home (washer/dryer, dishwasher, cookware, etc.) but the location on the beautiful, quiet beach, two doors down from a relaxing local resort and easy access to adventure excursions make it the perfect get away vacation spot for families, couples and singles alike. Stay here! You will not regret it.

The Quiet Cabo Experience

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking to get away from the crowds of tourists and the Cabo scene, come to Casa Harden at Buena Vista. Quiet, beautiful, comfortable. Feels like home, except you're in paradise. Work on your Spanish at the local mercados. Plenty of nearby amenities and very friendly locals. Great launching point for day adventures (fishing, snorkeling, mountain excursions) or just watch the sunrise over the water and relax by the ocean and pool all day! This will be a regular vacation spot for us.

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the outdoor shower. We used the kayak, snorkeling equipment, and quad and had so much fun. The ocean and swimming pool were the best of both worlds. Wonderful local cuisine and sight seeing tours. Would we go back ... Definitely!!!
