Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) depending

Just steps from the spectacular Sea of Cortez. This property is located at what is known as the East Cape. It is 16 miles Northeast of San Jose del Cabo, and is landscaped with palm trees, varieties of cactus, flowers, and an aviary full of sweet singing birds to calm the soul.

Relax around the heated pool and spa, lounge on the beach, or take long walks where you will more than likely have the beach for miles to yourself. Fishing from the shore, swimming on this very swimmer friendly beach, or going out in an ocean kayak are just a few suggestions for your pleasure. Fishing trips can also be scheduled out of the little fishing village La Plyaita just north of the property, or out of Cabo San Lucas. Interested in surfing? One of the best spots to surf in the area is right out front. Boca de los Palmas offers daily maid service, with a delicious breakfast of choice, cooked to your liking to start your day.

Enjoy horse back riding? This is the place for it. We have our own stable of horses, a horse for everyones abilities! Take a ride along the pristeen beach, or up one of many arroyo's to view mother natures other creations!We have expert guides to make sure that your experience is safe and memerable.

To work out those sore unused muscles, massages may be arranged under our palapa sun shade on the beach!

Other activities, such as swimming with the dolfins, and out door adventures can be arranged for you.

About Marti Miesen

My husband and I are transplants from Lincoln City Oregon on the Pacific Ocean.

We came to the East Cape 20 years ago, and fell in love with the pristine area and the people. I became a Mexican citizen. Our lives have been enriched with the Bed and Breakfast we run, meeting the most wonderful people from around the country. Many have become good friends, and return to our paradise year after year!

Marti Miesen purchased this guest house in 1997

Why Marti Miesen chose Baja California Sur

We are in a unique area, away from all the beach vendors and noise. Only 18 miles away from restaurants and shopping, and 9 miles away from our local Restaurants Zac's, and Vidasol, you can have it all! Beautiful white sand beach all to yourself, with the comforts of big hotel amenities! We will aspire to meet all your needs to make your vacation experience fun and memorable.

What makes this guest house unique

You won't get the private beach and environment that we have at Boca de Las Palmas in the general San Jose and Cabo area. The East Cape is the last bastion of peace and tranquility, where the developers have not yet started to develop.

We have a new paved road from San Jose del Cabo to our house except for 5 miles of dirt, which is generally kept up with the grater. We do have a service of pick up and delivery to the airport for $150.00 US taking you to the grocery store for your other food and beverage needs while here and then home. If you would like to rent a car and have us meet you at the airport so you can follow us, that would be $75.00 US.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin? Marti was a gracious host and, from the beginning, she was like a long, lost family member who just happened to have a secluded, beach-front property in Mexico and wanted to cook us an amazing breakfast every morning. Our adventure with Marti began when she met us at the Hertz rental car agency and directed us to the Mega grocery store so we could buy a 24-pack of cervezas (and for her to stock up for our week's breakfast). She is fluent in Spanish, so when you find yourself looking for lard free tortillas and can't read the nutrition label, she is patient and more than happy to help. Next is the most important thing to know: have her take you to Zac's. It's in the middle of nowhere and you'll be second guessing yourself for following this lady into the bushes, but you will not be disappointed. You will be starving from your flight, so go there and order tacos and margaritas. And then go back the following night and order more tacos and more margaritas (because you will be surprised at how awesome you feel the next morning). Our crew was a group of 5 so we slept 4 people in the guest house and 1 person in the extra room in the main house. In the guest house is a bed and a fold-out couch and one bathroom; in the main house there is a bed and a private bathroom (note: we could have comfortably slept 6 people as all the beds are quite large). The guest house has a kitchen and all silverware, dishes, pans, and glassware were provided. Bedding was also provided. No issues there. The hot tub and pool were great and cleaned regularly. In fact, everything was spotless and Marti's staff, who lives on site, busily cleaned the guest house and extra room each day while we ate our huge, home made breakfasts. Speaking of breakfast we had shrimp omelettes (twice!), huevos rancheros, breakfast burritos, french toast, waffles, and a creamy egg scramble (trust me on the creamy egg scramble, it was the most-talked about breakfast item since this trip). And let's not forget the gigantic, fresh fruit plate every morning. It was unreal. Don't be hesitant to stay away from the tourist crowds especially if you want a truly relaxing vacation. Marti and her husband were glad to talk with us throughout the day, but were also fine just letting us do our own thing. If you feel like you might want to visit the city, San Jose del Cabo was only a ~40 minute drive from the house and Cabo San Lucas was only another ~30 minutes after that. Thank you so much Marti, Lloyd, and

Paradise! Escape the Crowds! Beachfront Home on East Cape!
average rating of 5.0 based on 15 reviews

Truely the most gracious hosts I have ever encountered. One of the most perfect beaches I have seen

  • 5 of 5

Imagine yourself trapped in a Cabo all inclusive "resort" where you must rise at 4:30 to claim and guard your chairs by the pool, were the internet is an additional charge, where no one smiles! Well now imagine contacting a charming woman named Marti who comes to save you from this hellish experience and she takes you to the most beautiful paradise!! All true my friends! Bocas de las palmas is phenomenal! Perched on the Sea of Cortez you can stroll the beach picking up shells and watching the sea life without encountering another soul. You can breakfast on a meal so vast you don't need lunch and all the while watch whales frolic directly in front of this beautiful oasis of peace!

Marti and Lloyd are an amazing couple! We were truly blessed to meet them and now consider them family!!

Marti does rescue many lost souls: dogs, cats, horses, birds and unhappy tourists so you must love animals to stay here! We couldn't speak more highly of our stay!

Such a beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Marti and Lloyd are so welcoming they make you feel like family. They are the nicest and most accomidating hosts! Their property is beach front with not another house in sight. There are waves out front or you can make the short drive to other spots. The breakfast Marti makes was such a treat everyday! We were down there with our family of four, my kids ages 6 and 4. None of us wanted to leave and we all agreed it was our best vacation ever. Thanks again and cant wait to come back!

Marti and Lloyd have the best bed and breakfast ever. The accommodations are outstanding. We stay in the guest house and couldn't be happier there. The property is absolutely beautiful and secluded from other tourists. It is paradise like advertised and I plan on staying there again and again. We are pet lovers and they have several dogs which we enjoy so much. One of our highlights were going down to the beach at 8:30 every night when the dogs come down for their walk. If you to wake up to a wonderful breakfast of your choice, a relaxing time by the pool or on the beach, or to explore the beautiful coastline, this is the place for you to be.

This is the easiest review I ever had to make since we were in a Paradise with great People.

We stayed over a week and were 2 Families with 3 girls being 3, 4 and 7 years old. No crowd, house on the beach, heated pool and spa, amazing breakfasts (you will not have any lunch after tasting those breakfasts), bbq, and staff you will fall in love with. We definitely want to stay in touch with them and we will come back for sure. Our little one also enjoyed riding horses on the beach with me. It is totally safe. You have the feeling to live in a postcard.

If I would recommend this place? Yes definitely! We can't wait for booking our next trip over there!

Owner's Response: We can't wait for your return either. Yes, it is like living in a postcard, with the Sea at your doorstep and pool in front of it. Making pancakes, waffles, eggs Benedict, huevos rancheros, and the rest I well be thinking of you all. Thank you for being such wonderful guests, we miss you.

We had such an incredible week. We have two young kids who will remember that week for the rest of their lives. They will miss having the ocean just for themselves, riding horses on this incredible beach, the pool, the spa, the delicious breakfast and last but not least spending time with Marti and Lloyd. They took care of us as if we were part of their family which was amazing.

We took the car yesterday to go to the park. My 2 years old was very disappointed when she realized “we were not going to see Marti”!

I hope we can come back one day to dreamland!

Owner's Response: Having your family with us was a wonderful time and experience. We loved having the children draw us pictures, watch cartoons with us, and play with the animals. You all made wonderful memories for us, and hope that one day we all well get together again.

Paradise Indeed!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't even begin to tell you what a wonderful vacation we had and the best part was meeting Marti and Lloyd. The property had all the amenities to make a fabulous vacation, private guest house, pool, spa, and ocean. LOTS of ocean. You could look down the coastline and the best part was you felt like you were on an island all by yourself. No people for miles. Marti prepared whatever your heart's desired for breakfast to start your day off and after that, relax on the beach, by the pool or take a drive to one of the many small towns. However, our favorite part of the day was when Marti and Lloyd would take their dogs for a walk on the beach and visit with us. We so loved their company. We would go back in a heartbeat if work allowed but we will be back as soon as we can! As long as it is available, we will never stay anywhere else.

Owner's Response: We so so enjoyed having you Christine and Mike, and so did the furry kids. You both were so gracious and we loved sitting with you in the evenings on the beach watching the stars, laughing, talking and letting the kids (dogs) have a bit of last minute fun before bedtime. We welcome you back with open arms, when ever your schedule allows.

Cabo Pulmo is about 45 minutes from our place. It is one of the most beautiful reserves left. Snorkeling and diving are the name of the game, and qualified people can be hired to take you out.

We have horses on our property to ride on the beautiful beach and up the arroyos,(water washes). Our property is right in the heart of the best surfing on the East Cape of the Baja.
