Welcome to Casa Nivana! This is a brand new architecturally-designed, eco-friendly 2 bedroom/2 bath home with a private saltwater pool on a 1/2 acre of land just a short 10-minute walk (1/2 mile) from the best surf and swimming beach in Baja Sur!

You'll be surrounded by a canopy of cactus and desert plant life while enjoying magnificent ocean and sunset views daily.

Casa Nivana is your Baja home away from home !

The space
This is an off-the-grid home completely powered by solar energy and a brand new automatic transfer back-up generator. You will have all the modern conveniences of home but will be asked to be conscious of energy use. High powered ceiling fans are installed in all rooms as are energy efficient LED lights with dimmers. We ask that you please do not use any heating devices such as hairdryers and coffee machines as this will zap the system of energy and most likely cause a power outage.

You will have brand new kitchen appliances to use including a refrigerator, stove, oven, coffee press and blender. There is a private parking area for your car and the house is fully fenced with a secure entrance gate.

The saltwater pool is 26 feet long (8 meters) , 13 feet wide (4 meters), with a depth of just under 5 feet throughout. The pool can also be lit at night for evening swims under the stars. The light switch is located at the small grey box right under the filter system area . You just need to flip it up to turn on.

A powerful 5G internet system is also installed in the house to help you stay connected online when needed.

Casa Nivana is located in a very quiet neighborhood in the beach town of Los Cerritos. You will immediately feel connected to nature the minute you walk through the front door.

Casa Nivana is truly a special place and provides the perfect Baja getaway for those seeking privacy, comfort, connection with nature and proximity to the sea.

Guest access
Guests have access to two private bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a full kitchen and living room and over 1000 square feet of outdoor living space including a 300 square foot rooftop lounge area.

There is a also a private saltwater pool that is only for the guests to use. You are on a 1/2 acre of fenced land so you have the whole place to yourself, including an unobstructed view of the ocean !

Other things to note
Cerritos, Pescadero and surrounding areas are considered RURAL Mexico. We love our guests to have this understanding before arrival, which helps manage expectations. Infrastructure and certain amenities are still developing in many ways. Electricity is fairly new to this area (within the last 3 years), so there are times of power outages. Many systems are only on solar and are not tied into the power grid in any way, solely relying on sunny days.

Casa Nivana has a brand new top-of-the-line solar system installed along with an automatic back-up generator that will go on whenever batteries charged by the solar panels are low and/or when there is little sun. We have recently installed an added component to our system which allows the generator to charge the solar batteries to help minimize the amount of time generator is actually on. The generator is located under the front area of the home and we recommend just closing front and side doors of house to help minimize any sound disruption to your stay.

Driving at night is dangerous due to cows on the road or cars without headlights (not banditos!) Please go slow. Most roads off the main highway are dirt and all roads in the area have potholes with lots of bumps. Most roads do not have street names, and houses do not have addresses. You must rely on the maps provided and do a little research of your own. Baja midnight is considered 9:00pm, and expect many businesses to close at this time. Buildings typically leak during rains, and water can come under doors depending on the amount of rain. We are in the desert with many new human inhabitants, therefore, the natives do make appearances. We attempt to mitigate this as much as possible, but please do not be surprised if you see a mouse or two, flies and gnats (bobos), ants, scorpions, or a rare snake. This area is considered safe, but we do still have petty theft. Please lock electronics and valuables in safes or locked cabinets when you are not home. We recommend trip insurance as unfortunately we cannot refund for weather or rural Mexico related incidents.

Location

El Pescadero, Baja California Sur, Mexico

The house is an 8 minute walk from Los Cerritos beach, the best surfing and swimming beach in Baja. You are minutes away from some excellent local restaurants and markets as well as rental spots for surfboards, and surf lessons. Two boogie boards are provided in the house as are pool noodles for your private saltwater pool.

Some of my favorite restaurants are walking distance from the house including Barracuda's Cantina, Free Souls, Hacienda Cerritos, and the beachside restaurant at Cerritos Surf Colony.

The town of Todos Santos is an easy 15 minute drive and here you will find dozens of cafes, restaurants and art galleries. El Pescadero Beach is a 7 minute drive and here you will also find a few wonderful restaurants and cafes including Hierbabuena and Baja Beans.

Beautiful Balandras Bay and La Paz is an easy hour and 10 minute drive. Cabo San Lucas is a 50 minute drive if you want to enjoy more nightlife.

The location of Casa Nivana is ideal for anyone wanting beach, surf, sun and relaxation ! The neighborhood is very quiet filled mainly with the sound of birds and surf. You are on a private half acre of fenced land so you will feel very much like you are in your own little desert oasis.

Hello from Hawaii ! I am an avid traveler of the world and am always looking for wonderfully unique and quiet retreats to visit wherever I go. I have recently discovered the beauty and magic of Baja, Mexico and began to build my dream home there a year ago. Casa Nivana was built in honor of my father Niko and my mother Ivana and was designed to make nature the focus of attention from the minute you walk through the door. My hope is that everyone who stays here feels the same magical energy and awe-inspiring beauty that I do every time I visit and stay here. Let Casa Nivana be your "home away from home" when you truly want to just get away from it all ....
