Why Betsy Barrymore Stoll chose Cabo Pulmo
Cabo pulmo is one of baja’s best kept beach vacation secrets. And BAJA PARADISE's EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR are the “pearl in the oyster” of the gem known as Cabo Pulmo. Now that you’ve found us, we hope you’ll join us for the best beach vacation you’ve ever had and experience a wonderful holiday “off the beaten track” that we know you won’t soon forget. Our motto is, “if we don’t provide it, then you don’t really need it!” we have been baja converts since the late-60’s. EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR are the culmination of our many years of visiting Baja, first by car camping and tenting, then by truck camper and small rv, camping by private aircraft and sleeping under the wing of the airplane, then to the old-style palapa beach “house” that used to be the way it was in cabo pulmo, and finally to a large fifth-wheel rv after our palapa house burned down in 1991. Building VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR in 1994 and 1995 and EL NIDO in 2000 are the realization of our years-long dream of having real homes at the beach in Baja California Sur, Mexico. To off-set the expense of building and outfitting our little piece of paradise, we decided to offer EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR and CASA DEL MAR for luxury guest vacation rentals. Betsy, who is a retired whitewater river outfitter, used her years of taking guests into the wilderness to equip our homes with all the best toys. We have tried to think of every amenity we and our guests might want and have provided them all. While the houses are built from local materials, most everything else has been purchased in the usa, imported to Mexico and shipped or carted down the Baja peninsula. In addition to the large items that were shipped by commercial truck, we have made dozens of 4,000 mile round-trip driving trips with a loaded trailer from Idaho and southern California to outfit villa & casa del mar, and el nido.BAJA PARADISE's villas EL NIDO, VILLA DEL MAR & CASA DEL are wonderful & fully turn-key homes.

Villa del Mar
Very nice property located right on the Ocean shore.
Thanks for taking the time to post a review with VRBO. We know future guests appreciate your comments. Thank you for choosing VILLA DEL MAR @ BAJA PARADISE for your beach holiday!
Beautiful home in beautiful spot!
As advertised, Villa Del Mar is a very beautiful home, really well stocked with everything you need for a great vacation. It is right at the spot where some of the diving/snorkeling boats launch, and my grandchildren loved watching the boats going out and coming back. We loved our vacation there. Only warning is that the third bedroom is actually in a separate building - so don't plan on having young children sleeping there - we just all piled into the two bedrooms in the main house. Also be sure to stock up on groceries BEFORE arriving into Cabo Pulmo.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review of your week's stay in VILLA DEL MAR @ BAJA PARADISE. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay at BAJA PARADISE and in Cabo Pulmo. Excellent comment about VILLA DEL MAR's 3rd bedroom which was designed as a "float" bedroom which could be used by either VILLA DEL MAR guests as a 3rd bedroom, or by CASA DEL MAR guests as a 2nd bedroom. We agree that very small children would be more comfortable in VILLA DEL MAR's 2nd queen bedroom with their parents using this room's extra twin bunk-beds for little ones. We encourage our guests to shop for groceries prior to arrival in Cabo Pulmo, as there is limited grocery shopping available in Cabo Pulmo. BAJA PARADISE's pre-trip info, which is sent to all guests, provides a list of markets near the airport and also in La Ribera, the closest town to Cabo Pulmo. Thanks again for your great review, and thank you for choosing VILLA DEL MAR for your beach holiday.
For the PERFECT Vacation...This is it!!
This is the ultimate getaway! We have stayed several times at the Villa and have to tear ourselves away when it's time to go home! The house is amazing! It is wonderfully decorated and the staff is first class. There is plenty of nature watching (we saw whales everyday for 10 days) and I love that the beach toys and snorkeling equipment are available for us to use. My friends can't believe the water is as blue as it is in my pictures! I got my scuba certification at the local dive shop there few years ago and couldn't believe on my second dive I was in one of the most beautiful reefs in the world! We are planning our return trip as I write this!!
I stayed in the CASA and it was wonderful. Everything I needed was right there. All the beach toys you could possibly need. Plus great restaurants within walking distance. I will definitely be back.
Best place to stay in Cabo Pulmo!
We stayed at BAJA PARADISE for a week in VILLA DEL MAR, the only beachfront rental in town. We've been to Cabo Pulmo many times but this is the first time we stayed in VILLA DEL MAR. This is by far the very nicest rental in Cabo Pulmo. All the other rentals I've stayed lack in comparison. To be able to be right on the beach, have TV, internet, maid service, use of ocean stuff like kayaks and snorkel gear, made our stay the best ever. Son't let the price scare you away! Even though there are some cheap rentals in Cabo Pulmo, you don't get what you don't pay for. BAJA PARADISE offers the best value of all because they've thought of everything, all of which is already on the property for you to use and enjoy. We're already planning our return trip to BAJA PARADISE~
Excellent Stay at El Nido
I stayed at El Nido with 3 friends in May 2012. We had a great time in Cabo Pulmo. The service by the property owner was excellent. El Nido is a very comfortable place to stay.
Cabo Pulmo is a wonderful place to vacation! Cabo Pulmo is the perfect place for a great beach holiday and one of the best places in the Baja to be in the ocean. Cabo Pulmo faces east and fronts the Sea of Cortes and boasts the only living coral reefs in Western North America so the snorkeling and scuba diving are outstanding. There is a lot to see underwater because Cabo Pulmo is a National Marine Park and the waters have been protected now since the area became a national marine park in 1995. Cabo Pulmo offers safe swimming as the beaches are shallow-sloping and reef-protected so there are no rip currents or undertows like can be found in the Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo areas. Ocean-kayaking and boogie-boarding are also popular in our area and the deep sea fishing is incredible. Cabo Pulmo is off the beaten track and away from the touristy atmosphere of Cabo San Lucas yet the village offers all the services you need for a good holiday with six restaurants, four scuba outfitters, a fleet of pangas and super pangas for fishing, and two little markets. There are beautiful sandy beaches for walking and at low tide you can walk to the end of the bay and back, about 6-miles round trip, through a series of coves beneath limestone cliffs, upon which you'll see very few people.
Our BAJA PARADISE private compound offers three luxury villas, ocean-front VILLA DEL MAR, ocean-view CASA DEL MAR (20-steps to beach) and ocean -view EL NIDO (60-yds to beach). For large groups or family reunions, our BAJA PARADISE compound can sleep up to 26 quests.
