Le logement
First floor guest bedroom with private bath. Private entrance.

Halfway between Tijuana and Cabo San Lucas (in the fishing village of San Lucas), this villa has its own citrus orchard and vegetable garden. Located one mile from the Sea of Cortez, you'll have easy access to swimming, fishing, kayaking, diving, or whale watching. Outside the stone walls, the desert is yours to explore on foot or by bike. Besides the fabulous scenery, there are over 80 species of birds resident in this area. Explore UN Heritage Site cave paintings, or visit a working mine or geothermal plant near the Tres Virgines volcano.

Located ten miles south of Santa Rosalia and 35 miles north of Mulege, these towns not only have incredible charm but excellent dining. To get there, you can drive down the incredible Baja 1, one of the most beautiful drives in the world. By air, Loreto is a 2 1/2 hour drive north. Or you can fly into Guaymas and get to Santa Rosalia by ferry or air shuttle.

The owners are usually resident here from December through mid-June. If you visit then, you'll have good company, intelligent conversation, and gourmet meals. From mid-October to mid-December as well as April and May, the climate is like Hawaii. February and March often have high winds that limit outdoor activities. From June through November, you can have the whole house to yourself. The summer is a good time for fishing, and the weather is hot.

Our caretaker is a famous Mexican author who speaks perfect English, and he's there every morning to assist you. Bring your own computer, and enjoy our extensive library.

First floor bedroom with private bath accommodation. You will be hard pressed to find such interesting space at such a reasonable price.

Autres points à prendre en note
Airbnb was conceived as a way for hosts to welcome guests into their home. Over the years more commercial ventures have used this platform to simply make empty rentals available.I understand that this is what some people are more comfortable with; however, I hope that the full description on our site makes it clear that we believe in the original concept of Airbnb.

San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexique

This is not a tourist area; the old French town of Santa Rosalia is within easy driving distance as is the interesting village of Mulege. If you want a good restaurant meal it is traditional to go into Santa Rosalia. However, now there is a new restaurant in San Lucas. It is called Palapa de La Abuela and is open six days a week and is very good. There is also a small restaurant called Bahia at the San Lucas Cove RV park at the playa across from the town proper. This is open on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8am to 1pm for breakfast/lunch and on Saturday and Sunday for lunch and dinner. It is cozy and has really good food. The location of this restaurant is a plus as it sits just steps away from the water.

This village has developed over the past forty years from an ejido communal space for charcoal makers and fishermen to a small village where mine workers, some fishermen, and some military families live. There were no permanent houses within the village proper as all the land was held communally. Three or four permanent structures existed at the highway edge on privately owned commercial property. There was no telephone, television, or other electronic service. In 1992 ejidos in Mexico were given title to the land they occupied and at that time private residential ownership became a possibilty. Virtually every house in the village has been constructed since that date.

Today we have roads; only one road is paved. The rest are all dirt and dust. Schools, television, the internet, and cell phones exist. There are houses, some erected by the government, to house the population of about 400. A residence may have a dirt floor, a color television, an internet connection, and no glass windows. Most of the houses have indoor bathrooms. We get municipal water every other day for six hours, unless the pipes break, the pumps fail, or the SAPA employee who opens the valves forgets to get up. This past month we had no water for 13 days. We have a cistern and we buy additional water as needed.

The residents from the metropolis to the north call San Lucas "muy tranquilo." Compared to Santa Rosalia it is. It is also somewhat cleaner than Santa Rosalia or San Bruno, but not immaculate. Immaculate is an abstract concept living in the Sonoran desert.

Avid readers, writers, art collectors, artists and gardeners. The restoration of our home in Eugene and the construction of our stone house in Mexico are our abiding avocations/vocations. It seems that both are works in progress as are our lives. We have transitioned from participation in politics at every level to focusing more completely on writing, gardening, making art and working glass. However, we do consider ourselves to be progressives. After careers as professional educators and administrators we established an art gallery drawing upon our life long experience in the arts. From the art gallery we retired to a more peripatetic life living between Mexico and Eugene. We both have always been active in the nonprofit volunteer world and have moved from civic committee work to a greater involvement in environmental and homeless issues, and arts organizations. We have a cat named Stinky whom we love and a cat named Tramp who is a juvenile delinquent. I am an inveterate collector and am of the belief that you cannot have too much of a good thing. My husband does not agree with me.
