Overview

About the property

Luxury Villa In Paradise near the World's Top Rated Sports Fishing Destination

Casa Tranquility is located on the Sea of Cortez overlooking miles of pristine white soft sandy beaches in a comfortable, tranquil and relaxing setting.

Our casa offers some unique features you don’t find with other casa rentals.

Number 1; THE VIEWS, THE VIEWS, THE VIEWS! The home is positioned to maximize the Views. From any level you have views of the ocean from the front and beautiful views of the mountains behind. In addition, because you are two stories above sea level from the living area and three stories to the party deck, you will have views of the things that happen in the water that you cannot see from sea level, for example whales pass through from Late December to Early May as they migrate their way to and from their breeding and nursing grounds. This view is entirely different at elevation than at sea level. In addition, you can see thousands of Rays as they fly from the water slapping their wings on the water as they land, view large bait balls and watch fish of all varities jump out of the water; always an exciting event. Then watch the dolphin swim and play right in front of the casa. Discover turtle nests where they lay their eggs in the fall. Did someone say fishing! While fishing from a boat can be an expense, fishing from the shore isn’t. In fact a permit isn’t even needed to fish from the beach.

Casa Tranquility offers 3 Bedrooms (King Master Suite and 2 guest bedrooms sleeping 6 adults. There are 2 full bathrooms with large walk in showers with benches all made with travertine tile. There is a ½ half bathroom upstairs for guests. The master bathroom has a double vanity with onyx sinks . In addition, we also have 2 outdoor showers nicely decorated in Mexican tile. All bedrooms have wonderful views of the ocean. You can watch the spectacular sunrises from your bed and listen to the ocean while falling asleep at night. We provide a modern fully equipped kitchen with a stainless steel refrigerator, dishwasher, gas stove, microwave, convection oven, etc. The Kitchen has a bar area where guests can sit and visit while food is being prepared. There is a dining area with a table that seats 6 and a great room with a flat screen TV, ROKU, surround sound system and a DVD player. There is a pantry with a washer and dryer. Casa Tranquility provides air conditioning, a whole house water purification system and an automatic generator in case the power goes out. In case you need to stay in touch with family, friends or work we do have an office with internet connection and ocean view.

We have 4 lovely verandas and the roof top. The veranda facing the ocean has an elegant outdoor fire pit. Enjoy the flames dancing through the colored glass. You can enjoy your dinner around the fire pit or just take in the moment. We also have a BBQ on this veranda. Lounge chairs and regular chairs are provided for all verandas. In the evening, view the beautiful sunset over the mountains and ocean on another veranda.

If you prefer to view the mountains, we have another veranda for that. When you wake up the morning to enjoy your coffee or tea we have verandas extending off all bedrooms with spectacular ocean and beach views. If you want to have party there is the large roof top or you can star gaze from any veranda. There are so many tranquil areas on the property to enjoy.

This is a “BEAUTIFUL” place for getting away and relaxing. It’s also a great area for fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, shelling, paddle boarding, kayaking, and swimming, ATV ride on the beach, reading a book or just laying out on towel and relaxing. Casa Tranquility offer beach amenities: Two ocean kayaks, body boards, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, fishing rod, snorkeling equipment, beach towels, assortment of children’s beach toys, etc. Boat and ATV rentals are available. It's Paradise.

The casa is located in a safe environment for you and your family and guests to enjoy a wonderful relaxing vacation. We are located 50 minutes from the San Jose Cabo Airport and approximately 20 miles from Los Barriles.

Casa Tranquility is located a few minutes from La Ribera, a very small fishing village where the local town people are very friendly and helpful. La Ribera is “True Baja” similar to stepping back in time 2 years ago. The town has several locally owned restaurants, Tiendas, (small grocery stores), shops and even a new medical clinic.

The Casa is 3 miles from a new Marina, Cabo Rivera where you can launch your boat or even fish from marina. This area of the East Cape is known to be one of top destinations for Sports Fishing in the world. The Famous “Rooster Fish Alley” runs in front of the Casa along the coast line on the Sea of Cortez. You can also catch Tuna, Dorado, Marlin, Sierra, Lady Fish, Pompano and Red Snapper are a few other species that are popular with the fishing community. You can fish from the beach in front of the casa or we can make arrangements for a panga boat to pick you up directly in front of the casa for a deep sea fishing adventure. There are also several fishing tournaments throughout the year along the East Cape.

Casa Tranquility is located 16 miles north of Cabo Pulmo, A Mexican National Marine Protected Park .Cabo Pulmo is home to a living coral reef and millions of tropical fish, which makes for some fantastic diving and snorkeling. Everything you could wish for as a diver or snorkeler is nearby - tropical fish, game fish, manta rays, sea lions and even the rare Golden Grouper. You may also get really lucky and see a visiting Whale Shark. This protected area has flourished and is an example of what the entire Sea of Cortez was like in the not so distance past. Cabo Pulmo is another small village with authentic restaurants waiting to be enjoyed.

Discover and explore near the casa, Road runners, Doves, Nesting turtles, Quail, Variety of Birds, Butterflies, Jack Rabbits, and any other little critters to keep you on your adventurous journey.

Approximately 20 miles north of La Ribera is the tourist town of Los Barriles where wind surfing, sailing, paddle boarding, fishing are popular sports. There are restaurants, shops and hotels, as well as a larger grocery store. During events and holiday season you can enjoy live music and art festivals.

This relaxed authentic surrounding of the East Cape provides a “real experience” of unspoiled Baja, Mexico. The neighboring towns of La Ribera, Santiago, San Bartolo and Los Barriles offer a number of attractions, friendly helpful people, and most importantly a very safe environment.

If you prefer the big city life, you have your choice of San Jose, Cabo San Lucas, or La Paz. There are luxury golf courses, restaurants, large hotels, night clubs, extensive shopping and sightseeing. San Jose is about 80 minutes and Cabo is about 90 minutes. La Paz (120 minutes), the capital city of Baja California Sur, has even more shopping, restaurants, and beautiful bay an extensive walkway known as the “Malecon”. There are many great places to scuba dive or snorkel in these 3 cities.

Casa Tranquility is where you find paradise awaiting for you. We look forward to sharing the experience with you.

About Teri

My Husband and I have been traveling to Baja for over 25 years and we love this area. We are avid scuba divers and we enjoy diving Cabo Pulmo, which is only a 20 minute drive from our casa. In addition, we are very active people who enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, water skiing ,etc. We also enjoy the tranquility of the area and taking a break to relax. We are involved in the turtle and whale shark rescue in Baja.

Teri purchased this house in 2009

Why Teri chose La Ribera

We built this house and after one year it was completed late in 2010. We wanted a 2 story with incredible views and privacy. We watch the beautiful picturesque sunrises from our bedroom and the sunsets from the Verandas. In the evening, we enjoy sitting around the fire pit and socializing or star gazing from the verandas and the roof top. We also enjoy listening to the ocean. We have tranquility we want it or an area full of outdoor activities.

Our casa has great views of the Whales passing through in Jan. thru early May.

What makes this house unique

You will enjoy all the views our home has to offer of the beach, ocean and the mountains. This is a relaxing and peaceful home located in a small fishing village where the locals are very friendly. You can walk for miles on the beach and not see anyone. The beaches are pristine with white soft sand.

Beautiful views of the sea and mountains, with wonderful whale watching from the deck.

  • 5 of 5

Our family party of 5 stayed at Casa Tranquility in April and absolutely loved it. The views are fantastic and we spent many hours on the deck watching Humpback whales breach and fin-slap right in front of us. The beach in front of the house was nearly deserted and we loved swimming in the sea each morning. The kitchen is very well-equipped, and by shopping at the local store and buying fish and shrimp from the local sellers we were able to cook for ourselves every night and enjoy the view from the deck as we ate our dinner.

Quiet, secluded beach

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. We like to get away from the crowds and have the beach to ourselves. Teri made everything easy and was very responsive. Vincente the property manager was very helpful. I recommend getting the ATVs from him and explore the beaches.

Beautiful Views, Relaxation, Lovely Verandas and Kayaking too

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (children ages 7 and 5) stayed here for 4 nights. It was the perfect, relaxing getaway. We wish we would have stayed a few more nights. Our youngest enjoyed the roof top veranda and digging in the sand. Our 7 year old enjoyed himself immensely kayaking. Mom and dad enjoyed the spacious house, amazing views and walks on the, nearly private, beach.

Outstanding property...better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 teenage boys stayed in March and absolutely loved it. It was great to get away and enjoy the quiet and privacy of a magnificent stretch of a picturesque coastline. Vincente was there to greet us upon our arrival, answer any questions and offer great advice about the local activities. It was my pleasure to get to know him and his wealth of knowledge. We rented ATVs which allowed us to easily explore vast stretches of the beach. We had a great meal in the nearby town of Ribera that everyone enjoyed. We all hope to return again!

Excellent property in tip-top shape.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Teri's house. The house was in great shape and perfect for our family of four (including two teenage boys). The location was great because we really wanted to stay away from the crowds. We had the beach nearly to ourselves, and it is a short and easy drive to Cabo Pulmo for world class diving, and also easy access to Los Barriles for more activities. We rented an ATV from Vicente which I highly recommend for accessing a variety of ecosystems in the area. We'll be back.

I'm happy that you were able to experience the tranquility of the area. It's very nice having the beach to yourselves. Thank you for you review and we look forward to you and your family coming back soon. Thank you, Teri

A great house in a great location away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place a little different than the craziness of Cabo San Lucas, then I highly recommend the Casa Tranquility. This beautiful house on the shores of “Roosterfish Alley” is an awesome place to relax while also being a great location to explore the East Cape of the Baja. Teri gave us perfect directions and it was a breeze to find, taking an easy 45 minute drive from the airport.

When we arrived Vincente met us and showed us around the place and offered any services we might want including fishing, cooking, and massages at the house. We did take him up on his offer to have him and his son (who is studying in the culinary arts) cook an authentic dinner for us. We highly recommend this service at least once; it was delicious.

We thought about fishing in a panga for a day, but the winds picked up to where we didn’t think out landlubber stomachs could have taken it. We did however fish right from shore with a rod and reel provided at the house along with a hand reel we brought along. The fishing is better later in the season as the water warms up, but we did catch a couple of small fish and a stingray. Jim’s Tackle Shop in town is a great place to get any supplies you might need (Jim is an awesome guy to visit with as well).

We also explored Cabo Pulma which is a short bumpy ride away (if interested in snorkeling or diving then this is a spot you will want to visit); we drove to Cabo San Lucas one day and visited a desert waterfall oasis another day.

La Ribera has a grocery store which you can get basic food supplies, but if you want more of a selection you will need to go to Los Barriles for a larger grocer or if you go to Cabo you can go to Costco or Walmart.

Teri checked in with us periodically during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and Vincente helped us out whenever we needed something.

Overall, this is a great place to stay and we would rent it again if it were available, but my guess is that once word gets out it will book quickly with repeat business.

Owner's Response: Hi Andy, Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful detailed review. I'm glad you were able to experience the area and enjoy Vicente's and his son's cooking. Our place is located off the main road and we really enjoy the peace and quiet. I'm glad you had a wonderful time and we hope you come back to stay with us! Thank you, Teri
