House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
- english, spanish
We live and work in Cabo San Lucas, building custom homes and renting villas.
Caroline purchased this Guest House in 2002
Why Caroline chose Los Frailes
The East Cape is one of the few unspoiled places on Earth, just a short flight from LAX and other major US airports Pristine beaches, clear blue sea and the best snorkeling and diving.
What makes this Guest House unique
Unspoilt beach with hardly a soul to be seen. Go beachcombing, snorkelling and then a short drive to Cabo Pulmo for fresh fish for dinner. Go Snorkelling at Playa Los Arbolitos, Diving from Cabo Pulmo, or just sit on the patio and read a book with the sound of the waves for company.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
If you are looking to "get away from it all" then this is your place. The only thing I can complain about at this place is that it is too perfect! I recommend using the offer to have the meet and greet so you can find the place. I would not have been comfortable trying to get there unguided. Once there the absolute seclusion is magical! The dogs are great but Chake has an issue. She has a foot fetish and she needs professional help! NO, but they are both friendly if you want them around. We did and they were great companions. I suggest shopping at the supermarket on the way in so you don't have to go anywhere once you get there. We took a daily ride in our rented Jeep (I suggest renting a Jeep since it is about an hour's drive on dirt roads that can be very bumpy). Cabo Pulmo is nearby but their idea of a store is to make one of the shelves in a person's kitchen into a snack shelf! Definitely this place is the answer to the problem of life's hectic pace. Bring books to read and enjoy the water (a little too cold for our taste) and the solitude. The water down by Cabo Pulmo is warmer than the water that is near the place but it is tolerable after you get acclimated to it.
We were treated very kindly by the owners and the caretakers at the place so we highly recommend them as well.
What else can I say? The place is perfect but don't rent it because I want it to be available for my wife and myself when we have another vacation!
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our little casita. So glad that you enjoyed your despite our little Chaky with her foot fetish. LOL. She is looking forward to you coming back!
I'll be brief. Fishing was great as was the snorkeling.
The place is very remote. There is no running to the store once u are there. It's an hour+ for supplies. We brought a big cooler, but the fridge is a mini fridge and cannot hold much, which is a bummer as it's hard to get ice and we were there for 7 days.
While on the beach, it get tiresome bringing things up and down the hill over and over. Chairs, kayaks etc. We're mid 30's. Older people may not be able to get the kayaks to the beach to launch alone.
The apartment is an attached garage so there are no views out the one window really. We used the big house porch, but if someone is there I guess you don't have one?
Nice spot for us, but small fridge and up and down the hill all day made it challenging. I think it's too pricey too. If remote is what you want, book this.
We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. As described in the listing (and our notes that we send prior to arrival), our casita is very remote and it is far from town. We are off grid which means that resources are limited so a large refrigerator is not possible. There is a lovely view from the deck outside the casita to Los Frailes and the ocean although it is not directly oceanfront. We have had all age ranges stay at the casita and no-one before has ever expressed a problem with walking down to the beach and back. Sugey and her husband are more than happy to help carry things, especially the kayaks which are heavy: the notes for guests do ask that they seek assistance from them to get them to the beach.
Solitude and wild Baja
Very private and relaxing, away from the all-inclusive - very little packing required! About 20 minutes from Cabo Pulmo and a couple great restaurants. Great swimming and snorkeling just a short walk to the beach on site and nearby beaches you can drive to. Terrific beach walks, stars amazing, sunsets - wow! Was a bit windy in early March - but saw whale spouting, flying fish, lots of pelican and seabirds riding the breezes - and a donkey running down the beach! Casita is cozy and perfect for 2. Good satellite tv (when/if you tire of star gazing) but very little cell reception - which was fine with us.
so happy to see that you enjoyed your stay at our little piece of paradise!
Quiet Private Natural - EPIC
At first we were concerned that we might be a little too "off the grid" when looking at renting this casita, we took a risk and booked it for our anniversary getaway and we were SO GLAD we did. The casita wasn't difficult at all to get to, we did have the meet and greet service which was very helpful in finding our way, but for the adventurous it's not a difficult drive. High clearance vehicle is advisable, but we did see several small cars making the drive even on the dirt section. It's 14 miles off pavement, but mostly a well graded road (coming from the north).
I brought my speargun and was able to swim off the beach to the reefs right in front of the casita and shoot fresh fish everyday, also watched many many humpback whales swimming by, breaching, and doing their famous "tail lobbing" so beautiful the life in the sea here is amazing. We visited in february so the winds were blowing pretty hard most of the time we were there, but it did lay down for a couple days and we were able to take the kayaks out - so great that they are included in the rental - and they are in good shape, ocean going.
Only thing was in the pictures there was an area set up under the beachside palapa with hammock and chairs to relax, etc but when we got there the chairs were stored away and it appeared as though we were meant to stay at the casita rather than the beachside palapa. We made the most of it however, and found some folding chairs in the casita we carried over to the palapa and were able to enjoy the whales and the view a little more fully.
The resident caregivers and dogs - Chaky, Fausto and Mina were warm and caring, we even had the blessing of sharing a meal together. They brought the fresh made tortillas and we brought the fish! It was an awesome trip, if you like secluded beauty, private and pristine beaches and to gaze upon the blue beautiful sea in a clean and comfortable casita, this rental might be for you. Thank you again we hope to be back-
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay! our normal caretaker was in town having her baby and her parents must have forgotten to set up the palapa and garden area for your use: we are happy for guests to enjoy all outside areas of the property.
What a wonderful place!!!!
What a wonderful place to visit. My husband and a WONDERFUL time visiting Cabo Pulmo area.
The casita was perfect for the two of us. Easy access to the beach for snorkeling, kayaking, beachcombing and relaxing walks. Only a short drive to Los Frailes to purchase fresh fish from the local fisherman. Can't beat fresh fish on the bbq every night for dinner.
Appreciated having use of kayaks, beach umbrella's, beach towels, snorkel gear. The caretaker lives nearby and was always available to help if needed, but otherwise respected our privacy.
The resident dogs are so sweet. Every morning Chaky would come say good morning and follow us on our walks and kayaking trips. Loved having them around.
We definitely will be recommending the casita to our friends and have already decided we would like to return in the future.
Just a great place all around!
Seclusion at its Best!
Looking for an (almost) off the grid vacation? You've found it! Soft white sand under your feet, brilliant stars overhead. The well appointed kitchen will not disappoint those that enjoy cooking, sea kayaks are a fun way to explore the shores, and Cabo Pulmo is a short scenic drive away. We will return!
Thank you for your kind words and hope that you return soon!
The beaches in front of Casita Luna Azul are spectacular with miles of white sand on the azure waters of the Sea of Cortez. Cabo Pulmo Marine Park is close by with great diving snorkeling and swimming with the big Whale Sharks. Enjoy the relaxing enjoyment of being away from it all with all that mother nature has to offer. The East Cape is a playground of activities from relaxing with a good book, sunrises, surf fishing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, surfing, paddle boarding, sun tanning, beach combing. The desert mountain back drop provides gorgeous views, desert sunsets, hiking trails and off road fun
