Casa de Milagros ( House of Miracles) is located on the South end of the Sea of Cortez in the secluded, serene, safe, and upscale community of Playa Colorada. It is very near the authentic fishing village of La Ribera which has friendly people, grocery shopping, delicious local restaurants, emergency medical services, and the new Cabo Riviera Marina.
Life has a seductive rythmn here beginning with a meditative moment at dawn and culminating with a dazzling display of sparkling stars in the night sky that is so clear and dark that you can actually see the Milky Way.
Here, the soothing sounds of gentle waves, the briney smell of the sea, and the comforting feeling of warm salt water and soft white sand caressing your feet merge into a perfectly sensual experience. Your mind and body say, "this is heaven."
There is no sound pollution, air pollution, light pollution, or people pollution. You leave all of that behind at The Los Cabos airport and take a scenic 45 minute drive North to an area of Baja known as The East Cape. The East Cape is known world wide for it's world class sports fishing , but it offers so much more that many think of it as Mexico's best kept secret.
On the East Cape, miles of pristine beaches meet a tranquil turquoise sea bordered by stunning mountain ranges. The sea is crystal clear, warm, safe, accessible, and abundant with marine life. There are no rogue waves, undertows, rip tides, or hidden rocks. It beckons swimmers of all ages and ability, kayakers, snorklers, divers, paddle boarders, and surf casters. It's smooth and sandy beaches beg to be explored and you can beach comb for miles and hardly ever encounter another person. All of this is your choice. You can do a lot here , or simply do nothing but bask in the peace, privacy, and pristine beauty that will engulf you.
If you chose to venture away from Play Colorada and all that it has to offer there are many options. You can stay near by and visit Cabo Pulmo Marine Park which is the only living reef in the Eastern Pacific for fabulous snorkeling. You can spend a day on the sea sports fishing or travel to the nearby mountains and hike to a waterfall. Day trips for elegant shopping, delicious and varied restaurants, and restorative spa treatments are available to Los Cabos. Many guests plan to do these things but once they arrive they just decide to stay and be at Playa Colorada. After all, those other things are available almost everywhere but what Playa Colorada has to offer is rare indeed.
Now you know why we built our home here when we could have built it almost anywhere. Let me tell you about the house. Casa de Milagros is a modern Mexican beach house built in the hacienda style which means that it 's public and private spaces are built around an interior courtyard and enclosed within a wall.
This style of building is and was very popular in Mexico as the design is very practical and provides a private outdoor living area in a climate where residents want to live outdoors much of the time. In this case, all of the main living spaces open onto the enclosed interior courtyard that contains a 60 foot lap pool and outdoor dining.
Casa de Miagros is not a luxury villa . It is an attractively designed, well appointed, and very livable beach house made for relaxed indoor/outdoor living. The home contains 2 main bedrooms, a studio apartment, a spare sleeping room, an office, 5 bathrooms, and an outdoor shower near the pool. The main entrance to the house accesses the interior courtyard with the pool and if your turn left, you go to the great room which contains the living room with fireplace, the dining area, a modern kitchen with all of the conveniences of home, a pantry and a full bathroom.. This area of the house also has a separate office with desk, wifi, and pull out sofa bed. If you turn right, you access the two main bedrooms which are nearly identical. One has a bath tub. The 2 main bedrooms contain queen size beds and a private bathroom, one with a bath tub. The studio apartment and other sleeping room are on a lower level and are reached by steps leading down from the interior terrace to the rooms. The studio apartment has a full size bed, full bathroom, refrigerator, microwave, food preparation surface, small dining table and private terrace. The former library room has a full size pull out sofa, full bath, and private terrace. The 2 main bedrooms and the studio apartment are air conditioned and the entire main floor is designed for great cross ventilation. The garage and laundry area are on the first level. You can reach the beach from either the main or lower level of the house on a private 70 yard path leading directly to the water's edge.
Because Casa de Milagros is a new short term rental, we have no reviews. I encourage to read the reviews for the other homes in Playa Colorada as they mostly speak about the beauty and other amenities of the area. All of that will be the same. What is different is the house and our house is the only one with a 60" lap pool. We promise to provide the same quality services including an available and trustworthy property manager, cooking and catering services, and fishing and day trip guides. We encourage you to consider our home as your are going to love it's laid back style.Get the full listing »
