Off Grid Palapa is a short walk or 90 second drive from Shipwrecks Break and Beaches on one of the last untouched areas of San Jose del Cabos East Cape. A place for surfing, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling. Beautiful ocean sunrise, colorful sunsets in a desert meets sea location. Relax in a rustic solar powered palapa with a sleeping loft view. 2 double beds, one in a loft, the other in the main living area. Private toilet / shower, cooking facilities, cooler provided for refrigerated items.
The Palapa is extremely close to Shipwrecks breaks and completely off grid. Its quiet and is more private than other rentals in the area. Wildlife is abundant in this part of the East Cape as well as goats, burros and cattle. Don't be surprised if while you are walking to the beach you encounter a herd of goats being looked after by goat dogs. Then a few minutes later you are face to face with a burro or 3. Nothing is as breathtaking as seeing the wild horses roam the beach while whales are playing about in the ocean. Steps away from interesting arroyos to explore. Just 5 minute walk to the Shipwreck Beach. From there a 2 minute beach walk to the swimming beach at the Shipwrecks arroyo and from there 3 more minutes to walk to the Shipwrecks breaks. Of course in a vehicle this is reduced to seconds. Under 3 miles to the La Fortuna surf break. There is a family run restaurant in La Fortuna if you need a fish taco break. This palapa provides a secure storage area for your valuables with a key lock. We have WiFi for you to stay in touch with the rest of the world. Once you have been here you will want to return forever after.
Access area: Palapa, Palapa bathroom, fenced yard, shaded car park, upstairs view porch
I live next door separated by a good neighbor fence at Casa de Mascotas. I live in an airstream/mini casita combo. Feel free to come by whenever you want or need. I rescue East Cape Cats and Dogs so there will be various pets in stages of recovery to adoption in my completely fenced yard. I also feed and administer medical help to the animals in need on the East Cape from Shipwrecks to Zacatitos.
The Palapa is seconds away from the surf break. The location on the map shows Palapa Serena farther away from Shipwrecks than it actually is. in fact I am extremely close. There are only 2 other rentals in the entire area that are closer. I have tried to edit and it will not let me. If you are looking for a relaxed, private spot between surf times this is the place
- Dogs allowed but must be friendly to other cats and dogs
- Smoking allowed outside the Palapa
- Living in the desert means water is a precious resource and to be mindful of long showers and waste
- This East Cape Desert location is home to wild horses, burros, free range cattle, goats and coyotes. Caution is needed when driving in the area
Hi I love the hospitality industry I was 30 years+ with Hilton Hotels and now I have settled on the Baja East Cape of San Jose del Cabo near Shipwrecks Beach and I love it here. I have rented out in the past and very excited to go on Airbnb. The off grid lifestyle has been one of the best changes I ever made and so lucky to be here and call it home. Most of my time is devoted to my East Cape Critters rescue. I try to help all the abandoned dogs and cats that I can get Spayed, neutered, medical, food, new homes and love. I focus on the East Cape from Shipwrecks to Zacatitos. That also includes medical needs of burros and goats etc.. Don't be surprised if I ask if you'd like to adopt a new friend because I usually have a couple of pets on the road to getting a new home. In the Fall/Winter months I show movies outside at the Organic Market in Zacatitos to raise some money for the rescue. I am so lucky to live and do what I love. I think you would love it here as well. Its the best of all worlds with the sun, sea and desert. Wonderful wildlife everywhere. Come down soon the weather is great!
