Mexico Cottage Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom House, Steps From The Beach

Remote and secluded beach house on Playa Mojon.

Perfect for the intrepid traveler who seeks a quiet location in which to rest, relax and enjoy nature.

Beach-- Sand. Surf. Secluded. You can swim but it is not a gentle bay, there is a tide and waves.

The completely deserted Playa Majaqual is over the rocks. See photos.

Snorkeling beaches in town at Playa Entrega or San Augustin where there are palapa restaurants.

Security—the house is surrounded by an 8 ft fence. Windows are barred, a safe for documents.


From the airport to the house--32 km, approx. 40 min. drive.

From La Crucecita town to house--17 km, approx. 15-20 min drive.

From the highway turn-off to the house--2.2 km on a graded road.

From turn-off to Barra de la Cruz surf beach—10km.

No tv or cell signal. There are numerous internet cafes in town.

One Queen bed sleeps two adults. Futon and loveseat could sleep 1-2 small children.

Extra beds available for rental at $15 per day.

Kitchen with gas stove. No oven.

Indoor and outdoor showers.

Solar-powered fans, fridge and hot water.

Rooftop deck with view of beach.

Dogs are welcome, $10 a day per dog.

House is three lots back from beach, about 20 paces to shoreline. See satellite photos.

No Laundry. It must be taken to town. We charge for this according to length of stay and number of occupants.

A car is the best idea as it is difficult to get a taxi back to town; you will have to walk out to the highway to flag down sporadic cabs or public transport.

Cleaning and laundry to be paid in cash upon arrival:

$45 US cleaning fee

$20 US per week for laundry

If you choose pay through the VRBO electronic system you will be charged in Canadian dollars and the currency exchange will be done automatically.

About Kathleen Leachman

I live and work in Vancouver but have spent most of my life as a free spirit, traveling the world.

Things have changed, bills need to be paid and I can't get away as much as I'd like now but having this house keeps my dreams of freedom alive.

Kathleen Leachman purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Kathleen Leachman chose Mexico

Many years ago I did a road trip down the Baja in my VW Van, one of the best experiences in my life, and during my time of sleeping on the beach I vowed I would someday live out of doors.

I've always wanted to live in a palapa on the beach, interacting with nature and observing the rhythms and habits of the animals. Huatulco is lush, quiet and pristine, the perfect location to return to one's true nature.

This house is several steps up from a palapa but it's essentially outdoor living and there is an abundance of animal life.

What makes this cottage unique

This location is remote. You will be immersed in silence save for the calls of birds and insects in the evening.

I crave peace and quiet in which to think and read and my house is perfect for anyone who shares the same desire.

Remote is fine with us!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just finished our second month (of three) at this beach house and couldn't be more relaxed if we tried! It is as stated a remote location. We drove here, and having a car with us has made all the difference for getting in and out of town for supplies and exploring the area. We also have our dog with us and he has adapted beautifully to beach living even though he is a "northern" dog. Roman is a god send and is available for anything! We feel like we are at home here and very safe. Mostly we have the beach to ourselves and have discovered that 4 walks on the beach daily, equal the "required" 10,000 steps a day!! One thing you never have to wonder about here, is whether the weather is going to be good... it is amazingly beautiful and there are almost always onshore breezes to fan you. Playa Mojon is a gem!!

Romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself rented Kathleen"s cottage for 5 days for a romantic getaway and had a fantastic time. the cottage had everything we needed and Roman was there to make sure we were in need of nothing everyone we met at Playa Mojon made us feel so welcome and we felt like we have known them forever! the scenery is absolutely amazing if you are looking for a great beach with solitude look no further. The weather stayed in the high 20's the whole week, if you wanted to go out for a romantic evening La Crucecita is a short 20 minute drive from Playa Mojon. Upon leaving Roman made sure we had transportation back into La Crucecita. Kathaleen and Roman made sure that our trip was memorable and I would absolutely vacation there again. Thank you Kathaleen and Roman!

Birds, beach and you

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything in the description; tranquil , remote and perfect for intrepid travelers. Everyone in all aspects of the rental experience was responsive and friendly.

A perfect place to experience a beautiful almost unspoiled part of Mexico!! Get up early and watch the birds while practicing yoga on the roof.

a perfect place in the wild

  • 5 of 5

We came here for the last 3 nights of our honeymoon and were absolutely stoked with the place. it's the perfect place for a private, stress free getaway. We surf and were happy to see Playa Mojon had empty waves morning and evening, and only 2 mins walk away!

We stumbled across the house when checking out Playa Mojon for accomodation, the property manager Roman showed us through it and we knew it was just what we were after. He was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble.

I recognised it from VRBO, but hadn't booked it via the site as I thought it might be a bit insecure - no way is this place insecure, it has a big fence and solid locks, if you are worried about security don't be!

I would recommend to anyone (just remember there's no shops at the beach) and would go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Ocean Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My family spent two nights in this cottage, listening to the waves crash, eating breakfast upstairs on the deck with a view of the ocean, walking to the beach for sunset, surfing a beautiful break, admiring the birds, playing in the sand, boogie-boarding in the child-friendly waves. The cabin was clean and comfortable, the people we met were kind, and the chance for solitude was wonderful. We saw parrots, iguanas, frogs and butterflies. A short drive from the town of Crucecita, this cabin is a hidden paradise. We rented a car, but you could take a cab if needed.

Although I have ticked off many of the activities in which one could partake that really isn't the point of this house.

You will want to stay here for rest, peace, quiet, contemplation and interaction with nature.
