About the property

Private casitas located on our 3.5 acre beachfront property on La Ventana Bay

Kiting, Windsurfing, Paddle Boarding, Kayaking, Fishing, Hiking, Mountain Biking! We have it all, and more!

Lose yourself in the middle of “Mokie’s”, our private 3.5 acre beachfront paradise on the Bay of La Ventana in the beautiful Sea of Cortez.

Surround yourself with dense desert vegetation, including cactus up to 900 years old! Cerralvo Island lies 9 miles off our shore this, combined with the steep mountains behind “Mokie’s”, creates a natural wind tunnel making La Ventana Bay one of the premier winter wind water sport locations in Baja! Watch the wind come in and the dolphins swim by from our beachfront terrace, complete with wet bar! Grab your water toys from our beachfront sail loft just steps from the water on our sloping sandy dune and GO!

…Or just plain relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the bay and island with margarita in hand. We have something for everyone, and it’s not just wind!

We have two 'casitas” , or small houses on our beachfront property, one is a studio and the other a 1 bedroom. Each has a full kitchen, a full size bed, and 2 pull out futon couches, private bathroom with shower, and terraces that face both the Sea of Cortez and the mountains.

Ventana Bay, Baja California Sur, Mexico is approximately 900 miles south of San Diego, 40 minutes from the La Paz airport, or about 2 hours from San Jose Del Cabo airport, on edge of the beautiful Sea of Cortez. The Sea of Cortez is home to one-third of the world’s whale and dolphin species and more than 500 species of fish. It’s islands provide habitat for more than 200 bird species and host breeding colonies of sea lions and turtles. The area is especially rich with rare cactus, plants and wildlife including the black tailed jack rabbit, which only lives here.

Please check the VRBO calendar and/or contact owner for availability. Thank you for viewing our listing and considering “Mokie’s” for your stay in La Ventana.

Note that our winter season weekly rate of $650 is reduced to $575 per week for a reservation of two weeks or more, and reduced to $500 per week for a reservation of one month (the VRBO rate calculator cannot compute the two week rate correctly).

Why Russell Hargrave chose Baja California Sur

We fell in love with the area back in the 90's. When the Mexican government divided up the area and gave lots to the local Indian tribe, many of the residents decided to sell their lots. We fell in love with these 2 beach front lots becasue of the ease of access to the sandy beach, and the natural state of the property. The property was one of the few beachfront properties that still had all it's natural vegetation, and along with that, many animal species to view.

We call our property - Mokie's, it's not just wind! it is named after a very special member of our family - Mokie. Mokie was an abandoned and abused street dog that lived in the area. He adopted our family, and our other dog Siri as his best friend. Siri and Mokie came to us and proposed that Mokie join our family, and he has been with us ever since. Standing at a tall 8' high Mokie reminds us of our Baja home when we are not there, with his amazing optimism and ready for anything attitude.

What makes this house unique

There are 2 things unique about Mokie's. The first is it's natural vegetation, which gives privacy to our 2 casitas and a more awe inspiring desert expereince. One of our cactuses was estimated to be 900 years old! There are many birds and small animals living in the vegetation which are a joy to watch.

The other unique and wonderful thing about our property is the access to the beach. While other beach front properties are up on a high bluff overlooking the Sea, our property flows right onto the sandy beach for easy enjoyable access. Our property is also fenced and gated at the road and beach, which provides a more private and pet friendly environment.

Jackson, WY

excellent casita for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed this casita and the surrounding area very much. It was so nice and relaxing and a quick easy walk to the beach. My husband kite boarded on all the windy days, enjoyed down-winders too from the beach just north of the casita down to the large campground. I stand up paddle boarded every morning when the water was calm with the paddle boards down at Captain Kirk's - just 5 minutes south of the casita. The casita was very comfortable and clean and we cooked a lot of meals there. Oscarita's is great little market and they try very hard to get a lot of variety in their store. Watching the birds in the morning flying around from the back porch was really great too! Very peaceful. Wish we could have stayed 10 weeks instead of 10 nights! Thanks so much!!
