About Karen Quimby
Northern California natives and now Southern California residents, we've traveled the world and found no where we would more rather be than Cerritos Beach. When we discovered this magical place, we worked hard year after year to finally purchase our Mexican dream. With demanding careers, this home is our rest and recharge destination. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
Karen Quimby purchased this House in 2014
Why Karen Quimby chose El Pescadero
Because it's truly magical! We have been visiting this area for 10 years and though we have traveled to many places in the world, this was where we wanted our vacation home. After years of doing day trips, we decided to stay for a week and we were absolutely hooked! We actually built our home in that same boutique development we first stayed in because we liked it so much. The area fit our lifestyle. We are casual people that enjoy rest good food, locally owned businesses, historical architecture and a little adventure. Cabo is great for the day but has become a little too hurried for our taste so this laid back slow pace it pure peace. There are so many things to do and see here that we still have a long list to conquer. The land has a spiritual and peaceful feeling. The mornings are breathtaking, the sunsets are surreal and the beach is like no other. While the waves are are known as some of the best in the Cabo area for surf, the beach is one of the safest. You can play in the low rolling waves all day without fear of a rough under toe. It's a peaceful beach that stretches for miles with just a few homes and small developments peppered in. There are few vendors and lots of good people just enjoying some some good r & r with friends and family. You really have to experience it yourself to know how truly special this area is. It makes us happy to know that our home might be a place where good friends and families make their own lifetime memories.

We loved staying here...the house is beautifully decorated and comfy and clean. Equipped with everything you need for a fun and relaxing beach stay. Owner was responsive and super helpful with local tips/info.
Great for families!
We had a wonderful vacation. Traveled with our daughters who are 4 and 6. The pool was amazing at the end of the day and the pizza was a nice treat for our kids. Karen took wonderful care of us with a list of recommended activities and restaurants. We really enjoyed exploring the area! You do need a car here, and it was a little far to the beach for our four year old to walk, but the drive the beach is super easy and short.
Nothing short of perfect!
I hate to praise Karen’s abode profusely for fear it will become too popular! We absolutely love her home and all the amenities it has to offer. It’s beyond clean, tastefully decorated with an eye to detail, and it’s appointed with everything you could possibly need! Paper towels, cooking spray, coffee filters, laundry soap, etc. We will definitely be back!!
Awwww... thank you Stephanie! You were a pleasure to host and I hope to have you back soon. I know it’s hard to squeeze everything in, in a week! Thanks for treating my home with care!
Delightful tucked away retreat
We are a family of four that appreciates being a part of the authenticity of the places we travel to. That being said, the Quimby's hide-away is just the place for this kind of holiday!
What we loved:
-The unit is on the end of the development so you are able to enjoy the ocean view, and privacy of the fabulous patio just enough away from neighbors - this was key as the development was bustling with other travelers! There is also a pool, hot tub and restaurant on site should you feel social.
-The unit is beautiful, clean and had all the amenities for settling in to cook, relax, and/or even watch family movies. And aside from Karen's excellent communication, the staff is very friendly and helpful should you need anything as well.
-The area of Cerritos beach has so much so close without having to go into town for everything. There are two markets, several options for fresh, delicious dining and beach anything and everything you could want from surf lessons to massage or just play time.
-You are close to two fabulous towns - Pescadero & Totos Santos, both having their own excellent offerings as well. Karen has everything you could want to do and more laid out in her sent instructions for the property and guest book when you arrive.
So go enjoy yourselves, the locals and all the wonderful places this area has to offer!
The Andresen Family
Thank you Kelly for the time you took to write such a new review! I so enjoyed having you and your family and loved all your updates to my "Go-Do" list.
You were there for the busiest week of the whole year so if you want to experience a real quiet time, almost every month except Thanksgiving week, Christmas/New Years week and Easter week, are very tranquil. Can't wait to have you back!
Well appointed home with awesome views
We had a great time here. The home had everything we needed to plant ourselves for a week of relaxation. There are lots of comfy sitting areas and excellent views - from the roof deck, the master balcony and even from the enclosed patio. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also well appointed, comfortable and clean. We were outside most of the time but also enjoyed one night watching a movie via the Netflix provided and ordering pizza from the restaurant by the pool. We ate breakfast and some lunches at the home, but all our dinners were out at Karen's awesome restaurant recommendations.
Loved having you Rachel! Look forward to having you back and thanks for updating me on restaurant changes!
