Overview

About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9-10

Our home is a 4 bedroom 3 bath. It has three levels, the main level has two master suites and sleeps 5. The bottom level has two bedrooms and sleeps 4.

Although our home is not right on the beach it is perhaps the only rental property in La Ribera where you are walking distance to the beach as well as to all the amenities offered in town. Our location in town also provides spectaclular views, not only of the beach, but also the surrounding desert and mountains. The best of all that La Ribera has to offer!

The main living area separates the two master suites and has a wall of windows that open completely to the deck for premium outdoor/indoor access.

One master suite has the luxury of a soaking tub with a view, and each bedroom opens onto the main deck.

There is a fully equipped kitchen on the main level, and a rooftop kitchen with a premium BBQ and dining table set up for six people. There is also a lower patio with a small table and chairs available. Lounge chairs are available to place in your favorite spot.

We have a 42 in flat screen set up with Blue-ray player, Ipod ready stereos for in home entertainment. Internet is available at no charge. Phone is available for local calls only, and the area has moderate cell phone signal.

For outdoor fun there is access to a kayak, a SUP, a Yamaha Rhino (add'l charge please ask), beach chairs and toys, horse shoes, and bocce ball.

La Ribera and the surrounding East cape are a A FISHERMAN'S DREAM! La Ribera is a small Mexican town located mid way between Cabo San Lucas and La Paz on the Baja Penisula. This area is often refered to as the Eastcape. The town is the home of the up and coming Marina Cabo Riviera, and provides plenty of opportunity to catch abundant fish in the Sea of Cortez. Rent a panga from the beach or travel to nearby Los Barrilles to fish on a larger sport fishing vessel. Catch marlin, tuna, rooster fish and an abundance of other species either in shore or in the open waters of the Sea of Cortez.

We are also located close to the world famous Cabo Pulmo dive location. This is a protected dive site offering you plenty of snorkelling or diving options. Our area is also know for kite boarding and sailboarding.

Beaches are plentiful if your idea is to relax in the sun, walk, look for shells and explore.

There are plenty of day trips as well if you want to get out and about a bit. Los Barrilles is a bigger town and has shopping, dining, golfing and spa opportunities. Or for even more excitement travel to Cabo San Lucas, La Paz or Todos Santos for an extended day trip.

Although this may seem like a sleepy Mexican town you will find plenty to do, or best of all be able to tune out and do nothing at all, just relax!

About Connie Pifer

We are the Pifers - Jerry, Connie, Josef and Mari. We live and work in Oregon where we own a small grocery store and a pizza parlor called CG Market and Reel Sportsmen Pizza. Jerry is also a fishing guide and runs guide trips on our boat 'Reelly Addicted' for halibut, tuna, and salmon out of Winchester Bay, Oregon. We built our Mexico home in 2010 as a family retreat and a future retirement home. We are excited to share our little piece of Mexico with you.

Connie Pifer purchased this house in 2006

Why Connie Pifer chose La Ribera

We are fishing fools, and fell in love with the area because you can catch big fish with out having to go way off shore. We also love this area because it is truly Mexico we try each time we visit to immerse ourselves further into the Mexican culture. This is also such a great place for the kids, waves are calm, town is safe, and people are friendly.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit is that La Ribera is still a Mexican village - think Cabo thirty years ago. A great place to escape the hustle and bustle of it all.

Great Winter Break ...

  • 4 of 5

We (4 adults and three young adults) stayed 8 days at La Ribera over Winter Break, and we had a wonderful time. The house was very nice; clean, comfortable, roomy, and with ocean views. It was supplied with pretty much anything you might need. The two downstairs bedrooms are somewhat isolated (only accessible via outside stairs), which was fine for us, but maybe not ideal if young children would need to use those bedrooms.

I loved the quick and clear communication with the owners. We were welcomed by the caretaker, who also checked on us one more time, to make sure everything was fine.

La Ribera is a quiet, small town close to great snorkeling at the Cabo Pulmo National Park. It would take us about 35-40 minutes each way, in a small rental car, to drive to Cabo Pulmo (faster with a 4x4). Very much worth the trip, every time we went. After going out on a snorkel charter, the snorkeling on your own is great at Playa Arbolitos. You can hike out further south along the shore from there as well. We also enjoyed going to the waterfall at Rancho de Mayo near Santiago. If you want windsurfing, kite flying, or more of a tourist atmosphere, Los Barriles (further north from La Ribera) has those kinds of things, and is easily reached from La Ribera.

Getting to La Ribera from Cabo San Lucas International Airport was super easy (straight north on highway 1). It took us about 45 minutes during daylight; slower during night time (cows on road at times). However, La Ribera is a world apart from Cabo San Lucas, as it is so quiet and undeveloped. There is a marina, hotel, and golf course under development in La Ribera though, which might change the character of the town a bit in the near future.

Great Base, Great House, Helpful Host

  • 5 of 5

Campo de Pescado worked like a treat - a nice base for our grown family to explore the East Cape region. Connie was a delight to work with - responsive and helpful. The house suited us to the proverbial "T": safe, comfortable and nicely laid out - the water, gas, electricity (and yes Internet) all worked well. Having lived in Mexico for a number of years (near the D.F.), we really liked the small town appeal of La Ribera and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet the town was. There is a nice supermarket towards the center of town and a functional ATM near the church. The evening sunsets from the top barbecue area were a definite highlight and the nearby beach made for pleasant (though when we were there - often - windy) walks.

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Been coming to the East Cape for a few years now, we loved this place! It was very easy to book and set up with Connie, she is wonderful to work with. The house is very well built and had EVERYTHING we needed. We loved using the Rhino (at a very affordable rate) for our fishing adventures and getting around town. We are definitely going to be returning customers!
