“Casa Montana” on the shimmering east shore of the Sea of Cortez is our special retreat from a busy world. Located in the gated, relaxed community of Villas California, it is where Sonoran Desert meets the Sea. Just minutes away, nestles the charming, gringo-friendly town of San Carlos offering marinas, deep sea fishing adventures, a casual l8-hole golf course, an array of dining options from family owned taquerias to seafood and steak restaurants, Mexican art and crafts shopping and more.
We wanted our casa to be a Mexican-style home - and so it is! From its sturdy brick and stucco walls, its arched doorways, locally-made floor tile throughout, with colorful hand painted
talavera tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. NOSTRA CASA ES SU CASA! OUR HOUSE IS YOUR HOUSE SO ENJOY!
The visitor enters the property through a lush palm-filled courtyard, passing by a sparkling fountain. Upon opening the front door the magnificent, panorama view of ocean takes your breath away and the neutral colored, high walls, shimmering Moroccan dome and sultry ceiling fans create an exotic atmosphere that offers hospitality and calm to the weary traveler.
Each of the three neutral-colored bedrooms offers an inviting California king- size mattress with luxury bedding. Each also has its own bathroom with roomy, walk-in shower. Two bedrooms look into the verdant courtyard, while the master suite offers the ocean. Its occupants are lulled to sleep by the rhythmic rolling of the tide.
Four distinct terraces offer breathtaking views of the Sea, with the Baja beyond, magnificent sunsets, and the famous “Catch 22' Algodones Beach with its silky sand and the charming beach bar “Hang Out” known locally for its delicious cerviche and shrimp tostados! It’s our favorite place for lunch or just to hang out and watch the kite boarders skimming the waves on a breezy day. One terrace leads to the next with # 4 offering a relaxing siesta room “cave” with talavera -tiled cocktail bar.
We also wanted Casa Montana to provide a truly outdoor living experience and it does! Whether dining on terrace # l or 2, sitting reading on cozy # 3, or taking a siesta nap in # 4, you will enjoy daily outdoor living with the pelicans and dolphins. As our casa is on the water’s edge you can also enjoy kayaking, swimming and snorkeling right on your doorstep!
