About Paulette and Harley Drewry

As all our children are grown and we had been considering retirement and having done extensive traveling in Europe and other countries we decided we enjoyed the laid back area in the Baja.

Paulette and Harley Drewry purchased this villa in 2009

Why Paulette and Harley Drewry chose El Pescadero

We love the Baja area, and fell in love with Pescadero on our first visit and knew this is where we wanted to retire. Pescadero is a lush farmland with organic vegetables and the local people are so friendly. We look forward to the day when we can make this place our full time residence.

What makes this villa unique

The sound of the waves crashing are amazing, we never tire of just relaxing and enjoying the sunsets.

Perfect retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 1 week stay at this beautiful home. It was perfect. The house had everything you need for a relaxing stay, but it was also the perfect spot for adventure days--minutes from Cerritos and Todos Santos, it was also a great launching pad for our adventures to La Paz and elsewhere. I wouldn't hesitate to go back, we loved it!

Perfect Location and Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The house is located in the perfect spot, right between Cerritos Beach and Todos Santos. When we got to the house, we instantly felt relaxed. We did take a couple of day trips, one to Cabo and one to La Paz. The kids enjoyed the pool! ** Overall, a great experience!!

Beautiful house and location with a few glitches

  • 3 of 5

The house and grounds are lovely. The pool is terrific, temperature perfect, you can hear the waves while you swim. We spent hours and hours in the pool. The pictures don't do the house justice, the palapa bar in particular is much nicer than the photos suggest. The kitchen is well stocked. Everything in the house was very clean. Beds are very comfortable with nice linens.

It is a short walk to the gorgeous long beach, perfect for walking. Sunsets were spectacular. There are two fabulous restaurants in Pescadero -- Carlitos Place and Hierbabuena -- only minutes away by car.

So why three stars? Some things within the owner's control and some not. First things that could be changed. Check out time is 10am but the maid arrives at 8:30 to begin cleaning. That is pretty early in our experience with vacation rentals. You definitely get the feeling they'd like you out by 8:30am. Second, we had to be very insistent to get a housekeeper to come and provide clean sheets and towels after three members of our party got sick. The caretaker did not seem to understand that we really needed some assistance. I would have been happy to clean up myself, I just needed the supplies. Took over four hours and two phone calls to get a response. Third, we then hauled used towels to the laundry in Todos Santos to be washed. There is a washer and dryer and the house, but guests are not allowed to use them. It sure would have been nice to make an exception after we had so many people ill.

Last issue was outside control of the owners. The house has poor airflow with few windows on the inland side, and we were there at a hot time of year. Very very hot inside. You can pay extra for air conditioning, if you want.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

The home is everything thing advertised. It is beautiful, well maintained, and Rachel, the caretaker was great. The only aspects keeping this from 5 stars were outside the owners control. There was a good bit of construction going on in the area so cars and trucks go by the pool area road pretty consistently. This detracts from the solitude and peacefulness of the house. The ocean waves were huge and the beach is very steep so going in the ocean was out of the question (and I go out in southern California regularly). Pescadero is a nice little town. Todos Santos is touristy with pushy vendors. Overall a great experience.

Perfect relaxing beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we expected and more! The pictures do not do the home justice, it is immaculate, inside and out. The on-site caretakers were available for any questions we had about the home and surrounding area / activities. Communications were everything I'd hope for both before and during our stay. If you are on the fence about choosing this location for your vacation, don't hesitate!!!

Pacific pleasure

  • 5 of 5

It was. A great week's stay at Villa Ventanas for our family. W e found it comfortable, convivial, and relaxing. We enjoyed walks on the beach and dips in the pool. Wish the beach was swimmable, but the setting is great. The restaurants in the area are wonderful, everything from fresh ceviche, fish tacos, and farm to table cuisine.

Our caretakers were friendly and helpful, and communication throughout the process was timely, informative, and useful.

Only things we would like to see added are some pool floats and beach chairs. Also hammocks shown in photos are no longer available, they should be replaced for some extra relaxation in the ocean breezes.
