Welcome to Casa Nivana! This is an off-the-grid, 2 bed/2 bath home w/ a private saltwater pool on a 1/2 acre. Just a short 8-min walk to the best surf and swimming beach in Baja Sur!

Enjoy the canopy of cactus and desert plant life while taking in magnificent sunrise 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. Fortunately, there is lots of sun in Baja but for those rare occasional cloudy days , the back-up generator may go on to charge the batteries . We recommend just closing the front doors of the house when this happens .

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 the neighborhood of Playa Los Cerritos and is walking distance to one of the best swimming and surfing beaches in Southern Baja.

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.

Where you’ll be

El Pescadero, Baja California Sur, Mexico

The house is an 8 minute walk from Los Cerritos beach, the best surfing and swimming beach in Southern 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.

You will have access to the whole 2 bed/2 bathroom house including the main kitchen and living room area. There is a master bedroom off to the other side of the house that is locked and not accessible for guests' use.

Please keep in mind that this house is off-grid so during the rare day that it is not as sunny or a small storm is passing, our back-up generator may go on to recharge the batteries for the house. We also ask guests to limit their use of heating devices such as hairdryers.

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 Balandra 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 neighborhood of Cerritos is slowly growing with new homes and condos being built as well as a new hotel being built right on Cerritos Beach. There is a good chance you'll be hearing some construction sounds off in the distance.
Work usually ends at 5pm and Sundays are usually a day off for all builders.

During your stay, you will be on a private half acre of fenced land so you will feel very much like you are in your own little desert oasis.

The location of Casa Nivana is ideal for anyone wanting beach, surf, sun and relaxation !

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 ....
