Los Cabos Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Beds + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Lagunas de Palmas bungalow is located a few miles north of the small town of La Ribera, in an area called the East Cape. Surrounded by palm trees, the Lagunas de Palmas bungalow offers an incredible chance to be completely immersed into a true natural oasis.

Although the accommodations are comfortable, clean and artfully crafted in a spectacular setting. It's also rustic, remote, and requires climbing a ladder to your sleeping loft with queensize bed. There are two dogs, and three cats that also live at the Lagunas de Palmas property. They are nice animals that interact well with kids. The Laguna de Palmas property is more of an adventure and experience, rather than just renting a home in a vacation destination." Our rental bungalow is a very special place, however, it may not be for everyone... We hope it sounds just right for You!

Many people have described our rental bungalow, and this beautiful setting as the “real Baja.” The palapa roofs and handcrafted furniture, the great food and positive interaction with the Mexican people, the peace and tranquility filled with the sights and sounds of a simpler time. This is what we offer travelers looking for something a little more off the beaten path than usual.

From the bungalow take a walk over the private bridge that leads to the secluded beaches of the Sea of Cortez, and admire the freshwater estuary teaming with life. The estuary is a diverse ever-changing ecosystem full of animal life, and a bird watchers dream.

Fisherman know this area as Rooster alley, made famous by the independent film, “Running Down the Man.” Check out some clips of the film on Youtube and see why many fly-fishermen are making this place a must visit.

The weather here is ideal. During the winter months, the north winds creates the perfect conditions for kite boarding and windsurfing. Spring, summer and fall, the warm swimmable waters, and world-class sport fishing are second to none.

This is an amazing place. Incredible sights are seen here everyday. Come see for yourself all that awaits your next adventure to Baja.

About David Oak

I love to travel, be in the outdoors and meeting new people. I grew up on Bainbridge Island, Washinton, went to college at Boise State University and have worked in construction management for large construction firms for the last 20 years.

David Oak purchased this bungalow in 2009

Why David Oak chose Baja California Sur

This property is truly special but is for the adventurous types (like myself) that do not require fancy hotels/accommodations.

What makes this bungalow unique

The bungalow offers lots of privacy, and beautiful beaches that you will have all to yourself.

Remote, relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week at the bungalow, and had a great time. The place is a bit set off of the beach, but it is set in a nice canopied palm and scrub forest that gives it a very secluded feel. The beach is just a few hundred meters down the path, and there is only one house on the beach for a mile or so! We encountered only handful of other beach goers in the many walks we took, it is truly remarkable to have miles of white sand beach to yourself.

As Josh and other reviewers have said, this is not a place for everyone. You are very isolated, will need to climb the stairs to the sleeping loft, and there is no AC (we were there during the hottest season, and were just fine with fans). Josh was around and easily contacted for supplies or needs, but was never intrusive. You also need to love animals, because there are a lot of them around! The dogs and cats are sweethearts, and really enjoy your company without being needy.

We flyfished off the beach in morning, and caught ladyfish and Jack Crevalle, swam and really enjoyed our beach walks. If you like to really get away, and are somewhat self sufficient, you will love this place.

This is THE Baja experience of days gone by

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic ideal setting on a secluded estuary with a natural get-away feel with lots of wildlife (along with the domestics - dogs & cats). Jim is the best storyteller and unobtrusive host. Lagunas de Palmas is exactly as described, it’s rustic and wonderful, but not for everyone. If you are pulled to this haven, then it’s destiny! We’d love to return for more adventures.

True Baja!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! We loved it the minute we pulled up and explored. What you see is what you get. The images posted are accurate. This is definitely a place to relax and have a true vacation away from it all. Jim and his son, Josh, were very accommodating. They are great people! When talk of our trip to Baja we always pitch this place. We can't wait to return. Let the count down begin. January can't get here soon enough! See you guys in the New Year.

A peaceful week on the East Cape

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with Jim @ the bungalow & it was a great stay. We don't often return to a place, as we prefer new spots but in this case it's worth going back. Miles of beautiful beach & almost totally private walks & in season fishing right at hand! Thanks to Jim & Josh!

great rustic and romantic setting

  • 5 of 5

A little hard to find but work the trip. My wife and I stayed for a few days in the bungalow and loved the seclusion and relaxing slow pace surroundings. Josh, Jamie, Obed and family are genuine hosts and will make sure your stay is what you want it to be. It it reminds me of staying in the Baja of years past when it was less developed and not overrun with condos. We enjoyed the estuary, fishing, swimming and cocktails on the beach. The place is very rustic and eco-village-ish suited for the adventure travel set. Will visit again hopefully before they over run this paradise with the new marina!

Wonderful time in East Cape

  • 5 of 5

I have been a Baja person for 30 years, and have camped and stayed at fishing resorts in the East Cape area quite a few times. My wife and I tried something different this time, and stayed here in early October 2011. For the two of us it was perfect, a beautiful location, very tranquil. The landlords are super, friendly but unobtrusive. The dogs were an added bonus for us, as my wife and I are both dog people. When we went to the beach we always had some dogs for company. I especially bonded with Chito the fishing fanatic dog. Everyday at dawn while I caught small jacks and micro roosters form the beach Chito accompanied me, hunting ghost crabs in the receding waves. The big roosters also boiled on the beach a few times, and I came as close as seeing a big one follow my lure but not take it.

The best way to sum up the trip was to say that at the end of the week we wished we were staying for a couple more weeks. Also given a couple more weeks I would have gotten one of those big roosters from the beach.. This is a great place.
