About the property

4 Bedrooms, TV Room, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10 on beds)

On the second row in the coveted Palmilla oceanfront subdivision of Caleta. This is the jewel of the Palmilla Resort home sites. Just around the corner from the One and Only Hotel. This home is a rare one level bungalow on a 100 ft wide lot overlooking the ocean. Just below is the private beach. There is complete privacy in this double gated community. I have never locked a door since I had the home built. . Wake up to the sun rising and whales frolicking. Perfect geographically situated on the south side of San Jose. A simple fifteen minutes to the airport or Cabo San Lucas. 3 minutes to downtown San Jose. Caleta boasts the who's who of owners. Such a cool place to kick back. Every friend never wants to leave. Thank God they have jobs they have to go back to. 40 ft lap pool and jacuzzi tub.

About Rick Rand

I am a semi retired home builder from Toronto. First saw cabo in 1996 and fell in love with the place. No bugs, cool nights, great friendly people and super restaurants. Just so much to do. I had the home built.

Rick Rand purchased this villa in 2007

Why Rick Rand chose Baja California Sur

Guaranteed sunshine with cool nights at December/Jan. Pointy volcanic hills backdrop a terrain like Arizona but on the Sea of Cortez where whales breach. Magnificent views up and down the highway. So many great golf courses to choose from. The whole area is just a real pleasure to live in. And cheaper than the other houses in Caleta.

Because of brand new white Great Room furniture, a 1K damage deposit will be required for every rental period. It will be returned on the last day if all's good.

What makes this villa unique

Soft afternoon breezes coming up the hill along with the waves crashing soothe you to deep sleeps. Your own private pool and spa where you can skinny dip. Enjoy a coctail. Unlimited sports, beaches, dining and places to discover. Plus great produce in the grocery stores. Most grown locally. Great beef and chicken all naturally raised. And a short drive down to Cabo on a 4 lane highway. A small town feel with all the amenities you could need.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Absolutely loved it. Stayed at the home more than we expected. Recharging our batteries, hot tubbed, swam and went in town for dinner every second night. Thanks Rick for the great restaurants you recommended.

Great Family get together

  • 5 of 5

Hi, Rick,

Just a quick note to thank you for the opportunity to use your lovely home for our family gathering. It was a great place to spend time together and catch up – and enjoy some good weather.

Stark contrast when we returned home to Seattle. It was more like Toronto w/ first a record (for Seattle) snowstorm, then an ice storm, then a windstorm, and then some mudslides. Fortunately our home was in an area that wasn’t hit too hard, and we didn’t lose power.

Anyway, thanks again for our pleasant stay. Perhaps we’ll see you again when next we come to visit Lisa and Flora Farm.

This property is accessed from the Palmilla bridge which bridges the Hwy 1 on the south side of San Jose. Head towards the Palmilla Hotel. Take the 2nd left and follow it to the end. [First left is gated in to a small subdivision named Oceana Alta]. You will be at the Caleta gates which sits on the ocean..
