Built in 2016, 1500 sq ft House on the Beach
- English, Spanish, my Spanish isn't fluent but ok
I'm from Colorado, but love the water and love Mexico. I've been coming to Mexico since I was a kid. I have finally gotten my own place on the water. Yes! I personally don't know how to kite or windsurf, but love the scuba diving, snorkeling, SUP'ing, biking, hiking and kayaking I can do here.
Roxie purchased this House in 2002
Why Roxie chose El Sargento
I bought a vacation home in El Sargento because I fell in love with it. It's a small fishing village, more remote than not, it has a gringo presence, but not too much of one (people actually speak Spanish here), they've got the best chili rellenos around and the water is GORGEOUS!!!
What makes this House unique
One of the things I like best about my home here is that it's right on the water and right next to an arroyo. That way I can just hop on down to the beach whenever I want. Also good access for putting in your kite, SUP, kayak or whatever your sport of choice is. I'm in town, if there is any such thing as town, and can walk to my favorite restaurants or small stores. Also, being in town, I have gringo and Mexican neighbors, which I love. It's like really being in Mexico, more than going to an all inclusive somewhere and not even knowing you've been in another country.

We really enjoyed staying at Roxie's house! A very easy walk to the beach, lovely view of the water (partially obstructed from the ground level, but full view of the water and island from the roof top), and a kitchen fully stocked with everything you might need for cooking. Roxie even gave us access to an additional freezer (since we were there to fish and planned to bring lots of frozen fish home in ice chests). The location is perfect - it's located right where the road in El Sargento turns from paved to a dirt road, which means we could easily walk to Oscaritos (groceries) and Las Palmas (great restaurant with an amazing view). I highly recommend staying here!
Thanks so much. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Home away from home
We stayed for two weeks and loved the house- the location, the set up, and the quick access to the beach. We spent great days exploring the bay and beyond - Baja is a jewel of a place! We paddled - kayaked from the access point by the house to the hot springs and took our snorkeling gear and enjoyed long hours of beach water and underwater - even in the "cold" winter days of January! The house is well equipped and we made many great meals at home. We loved the fish store a couple of blocks away - Perla- fresh inexpensive immaculately clean and stocked with delicious fish - yum!!! Slow pace, high winds, amazing sunlight - there are definitely no bad days in Baja!
Thanks so much. I think you love it as much as I do!
Cute house and easy beach access
My boyfriend and I stayed in the casa for 5 days. He was able to launch his kite right from the beach outside. I was able to get some sun (shielded from the wind) on the deck. There are restaurants within walking distance. The house was very cute and had everything we needed. The owner is very responsive and gave some great recommendations.
Family & kiting
Right on the beach, close to groceries, within walking distance to some restaurants, within cycling distance to the rest.
Launching and landing of a kite was easy and with booties, the water access was reasonable. Very low traffic on the water.
The house is basic, as most seemed in the area, but had everything we needed... Even an orange juicer.
Authentic, Beautiful and a Value
I stayed at the house with a friend strictly for kitesurfing. Roxie, the owner was very nice and helpful. The house is nice, modest but a very good value for the $. The larger bedroom was great which I took for the week the smaller one has two double beds which are kinda small, at least that's what my friend said. The house is right on the water but it wasn't ideal for rigging and launching kites since all the fishermen and their boats/trucks were pretty active. There are rocks with sea urchins at low tide so you do need to be careful. We kited at Baja Joes, the hotsprings and also from just a couple hundred yards north from the house. We much preferred being in the middle of the village as opposed to with all the other gringos down in town or in their retreats. Would definitely stay again!!! The location is superb and the wind is glorious!!
La "casita" was perfect for our needs!
We stayed close to 50 days in la casita in December 2012 and January 2013. The location is perfect: we could see the sun rise over the horizon in the morning and we took walks on the sandy beach. The accommodations were clean with lively colors. It was a quiet heaven after daytime hours filled with numerous activities. What I liked best: the location, lots of outside space for safe parking, deck on top of garage for a wonderful view, patio at the back facing the sea, the desert garden or "lawn", easy access to the sandy beach, comfortable bed, internet (a bit slow at times but apparently it is a regional problem with the infrastructure), great bathroom with hot and cold water, great little fridge to keep your perishables, access to the garage to wash your clothes, great neighbors, a very likeable local representative and great service from the owner (Roxie). I hope to be back again, to enjoy this wonderful place.
If you want a change, you can go into the 'big city', La Paz, for theatre, museums and the like
The fishermen come in in the afternoons right by the house w/ fresh fish. You can buy them cleaned and everything right out of the water.
