Located in one of the most pristine areas of Baja Sur, Rancho de Costa's water pleasures include sparklingly swimmable beaches, a 50x30 pool with swim-up bar, and two good-sized jacuzzis. But it's not the numbers that tell the tale, but the environment itself, and villas whose splendor matches their dazzling sites on the Sea of Cortez.
Beautiful travertine and marble floors, granite countertops, multiple gourmet kitchens, outdoor dining for 18, a library-the fabulous feature list is overwhelming. What's not overwhelming is the enveloping feeling of tranquility and well-being you'll feel when you settle in to this fantastic beachfront estate.
Nestled on the Bay of Dreams near La Paz, visitors will enjoy a tranquil taste of paradise on a magnificent stretch of beachfront. Nearby, visitors can enjoy the casual gourmet dining of Restaurant 1535 offering fresh seafood, sandwiches, traditional Mexican platters and a full bar. Also close by, a beautiful new Tom Doak-designed golf course invites fans of the game to enjoy breathtaking Sea of Cortez and desert vistas as they enjoy a round.
Rancho de Costa (Coast Ranch) is composed of two private villas: Villa Langosta and Villa Marlin. Both villas combined equal 17,800 + sq ft of interior space and 12,000 + sq ft of exterior space.
The villa complex is beautiful--better than any words or pictures can say or show. The villa rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished, and still homey enough to actually enjoy kicking your feet up. Fernando (Our Cook) makes the best food you'll ever eat. Let him go shopping in La Paz and surprise you with incredible dishes. The extra cost of him shopping and cooking is worth every cent, because you'll want to enjoy everything the place offers. Beach, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, gym, tennis, basketball, golf (OUTSTANDING 18-hole course, but a bit pricy at $125), and just relaxing. This is a fairly remote getaway, but there is plenty of staff that I didn't know were included (except for tips). So your beds are made and the grounds are perfectly maintained. There are two nice restaurants--one upscale, and one casual. Los Planos is a five minute drive away to get more beer and Tequila. I've traveled the world a lot, and this places ranks very near the top, and is definitely at the top of my beach list. I will be back.
