El espacio
Ever wanted a home in the center of a pristine ocean cove? Here it is.

This casual beach house at historic Campo La Costilla sits right on the sand, with panoramic ocean views. The setting is right out of a dream, with pure nature in abundance. At your doorstep await great wilderness adventures, kayaking, windsurfing, boating, fishing, off-roading...and the best night skies you'll see anywhere on the planet.

There's really no other place like Baja California, This land has changed little since Fernando Cortés first saw it in 1533. Every sunrise over the sea begins the day in spectacular fashion. And the only sounds you're likely to hear are gentle surf and ocean breezes.

(If anyone in your group has concerns about Baja, search the following for an illuminating Lonely Planet article: "Are Americans Safer in Mexico than at Home?")

At La Costilla, the cove is literally at your doorstep, and you usually have the beach all to yourself. The spectacular oceanfront hot springs of Puertecitos are just six miles away. Our home's spacious living/dining room and two large decks overlook the cove, which is frequented by dolphins. Stairs lead directly to the sand. A large kitchen area offers over 20 feet of counter space, plus a large round dining table. Perfect for casual entertaining.

Please carefully note all of the following:

This house is located in a relatively remote location, about 60 miles south of San Felipe. Our cove and the surrounding highlands host a tiny settlement of Americans, Mexicans, and one former Yugoslavian.

This is indeed "casual beach living." To us, this place is better than a Corona commercial, but it’s not for people who are horrified by camping.

In this area, services are few to none; your cell phone won’t work. In short, if you need a manicured resort experience, this is not your beach. Our house is rustic and should be viewed as a more comfortable alternative to pitching a tent on the beach.

There's one true bedroom with a full-size bed...plus a separate sleeping area at the other end of the home with another full bed...plus a queen sofabed in the living room. You should bring your own bedding, towels, cooking basics, toiletries (including paper), paper towels, garbage bags, and soap.

*In a house this remote, there are no guaranteed utilities.*

There is solar electric, but it's not the grid, and may run out.

*Be prepared with candles and/or battery-powered LED lanterns.*

There is a modern bathroom that usually has running water, but it's relatively low pressure, and can fail as well — which means thet you could be bathing in the ocean and using buckets of water to flush.

All water for the shower, toilet and sinks is supplied by a rooftop tank. One tank is included with your rental; refills, if required, must be purchased from the camp caretaker.

*Drinking water should be carried in. Bring extra, just in case.*

There is a kitchen sink and a propane-fired stove, but there is no operating refrigerator. One tank of propane is provided; refills are on you.

*Bring matches or a lighter for the stove, and bring a good ice chest with plenty of ice for your food.*

There's a small grocery store in nearby Puertecitos, and a couple restaurants, *but* they may not be open. There's no local nightclub, no souvenir shop, no sure gas station, and because our home is "off the grid," we have no AC, no TV, and no phone.

For us, that's heaven, but it's not for the Ritz-Carlton crowd.

There's a canoe in the garage, and easy boat launching right from the beach. For large boats on trailers, a 4WD tow vehicle is recommended. Large fish are taken frequently here -- often just 100 yards from shore.

Pets are welcome, but please smoke on the deck.

Wheelchair access is possible, but not easy.

Large markets and 24/7 gasoline can be found in San Felipe, which is on the way from the border. Get everything you need before you head south to La Costilla.

Then...welcome to Nature!

Additional Notes:

> Mapping for Mexico is a bit difficult. Our home is on the beach six miles south of Puertecitos. Our cove is easily identifiable in satellite images, just above the big "bump" to the south. In G Maps Satellite, Playa La Costilla is labeled.

> Biologically speaking, the Sea of Cortez (aka Mar de Cortés or Vermilion Sea) is the richest body of water on the planet. This diverse sea supports more than 900 varieties of fish, and more than 2,000 species of marine invertebrates.

> We regularly bring basic kitchenware, but it regularly disappears, so it's best to bring your own.

> The road from San Felipe has serious dips, and the quality of the pavement is marginal for about half of the trip to La Costilla. Keep your eyes open.

> There's plenty of easy parking, on the beach in front of the house.

> If you have kids, please note that the beach side of the main deck is pretty high. Advise them accordingly.

> Motorcycles and ATVs can be ridden on the beach. For four-wheeled cars and trucks, 4WD is recommended.

> Kayaks, small watercraft, and even large boats can be launched easily from the beach at higher tides...but be fully aware of the tide schedule! The Gulf of California has one of the largest tidal ranges in the world. It's not a huge effect this far south, but you cannot launch and recover easily all day long.

> Bring self-lighting charcoal if you want to barbeque, and your own firewood if you want to have a fire on the beach. You will find little/none in Baja.

> The best supermarket in San Felipe is the ultra-modern Calimax, right on the main drag. You can get fresh food and nearly anything else you might need at reasonable prices.

> Please don't expect the home to be as clean as a conventional rental. The "cleaning fee" listed at AirBnB is really a prep fee, as it costs about $100 to get an off-grid home ready with water and propane for each guest. That's why there's a three-night minimum. Of course you are free to pay for the three nights and enjoy the home for 2 3/4 days. ;)
