About the property

4 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Home on Shipwrecks Beach

This is a beachfront, eco-friendly villa (ie. off-grid living) directly in front of the waves at Shipwrecks beach, in Rancho Dos Ballenas on the East Cape Road, which is about 12 miles from downtown San Jose del Cabo. This property is stunning and the views will take your breath away - probably the best value you will find in the east cape if you enjoy a natural setting with luxurious appointments all at the same time!

The master bedroom is roomy and comfortable with its ensuite bathroom, walk-in closet and amazing ocean view featuring sliding glass door to terrace for indoor/outdoor living. The second ocean front bedroom has king bed and stunning panoramic views from the second floor and its own private balcony. This room has modern 4-piece bathroom with pebble tile shower, TV, and bar fridge. The third King bedroom suite has garden views on the opposite side of the house making it very private and it has a 3-piece ensuite with large walk-in shower. The fourth bedroom has a queen bed is perfect for overflow guests or children. There is a 2-piece powder room in the main entry for guests.

The beachfront terrace has ample sun and shade for a variety of activities, including a brand new infinity pool with continuous bench seating to take in the amazing panoramic views. There are steps leading down to the beach which is uninhabited for the most part. Enjoy a cool beverage on the terrace that has enough space for a party of 20, yet feels luxurious and perfect for two. Adjacent to the pool you will find comfortable sun chaises as well as a built in seating lounge where you can play cards, hang out or dine in style! Watch the whales go by right before your eyes.....take a short walk on Shipwrecks beach to enjoy the surf, or drive up the coast for 10 minutes to La Fortuna or Nine Palms to catch the waves there. Very private, quiet secluded getaway for couples or surfers who appreciate the finer things in life! About 15 min away from a couple of good restaurants: Zac's Bar and Grill in Zacatitos, Buzzards at El Encanto and Vida Soul Restaurant in Vinorama, or only 20 minutes from the fine dining of Flora Farms and Acre.

Exciting NEWS for Fall 2017 - the Stone Cottage at El Colibri will be ready to add another 4 guests to your party! Search “El Colibri at Shipwreck’s Beach” to learn more!

(Note: Children should have adult supervision at all times due to the infinity edge terrace and pool)

About Carrie Dyck

We are from Vancouver, BC and love to create memorable experiences with people! Over the past 20 years, we have traveled to special places and in particular the locations of Spain and Greece hold a special place in our hearts. The area of the southern Baja reminds us of those Mediterranean spots and now this is our favorite place to be! We love the people, we love the food, and we love the rustic natural let our home welcome you to the beautiful Baja and the Sea of Cortez.

Why Carrie Dyck chose San José del Cabo

We have a passion for the Baja and fell in love with the people and european charm of San Jose del Cabo in 2004. We enjoyed six years on the Costa Azul beach near town and dreamed of owning property on the beach in the beautiful east cape a short drive from San Jose where the Sea, Sand, and Sun drown out life's distractions! We love to host people in our vacation rental properties, where you feel close to nature and experience a time of refreshing.....come stay at our casa, "El Colibri at Shipwreck’s Beach" in the Baja and let the sound of the sea completely relax you!

What makes this house unique

This property has room to spread out and enjoy different vantage points.....from the panoramic view of the sea from the beachfront patio to enjoying a cool drink under the palapa shade watching the sunset. You can also see where the actual shipwreck is located out front and snorkel around it - you might even find a lobster! A long beach walk is another favorite pastime along with just hanging out and enjoying barefoot blissful living in your luxurious private villa surroundings!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the Casa Leroy for 10 wks and had a lovely relaxed time. The house is comfortable and well taken care of and has everything that you might need. The location right on the beach was perfect for us humans and our dog who was travelling with us. We arranged for a dune buggy which was a lot of fun and allowed us to do a bit more exploring of the area. A couple of things to note: there is no cell service at the house but the internet worked very well; the drive from San Jose del Cabo is approx 45 mins over a not so great road though when we left in mid-February they had started to rebuild the road. All in all a very nice spot and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Our Wedding at El Colibrí

  • 5 of 5

We decided to celebrate our wedding in the beach at El Colibrí, since the moment we got there before the wedding, everything was so clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The constant communication with Carrie and Ray before we decided to spend 3 nights with them, was so clear and comfortable that we decided that there was no better place for us to celebrate one of the most important days of our lives. We couldn't believe that during the ceremony at the beach, we could see whales jumping in the distance, uncountable breath taking moments.

Next morning we enjoyed a very nice breakfast in front of the Sea of Cortes. And didn't hesitate to take the kayaks that are at El Colibri to go out and find peaceful moments as a couple in the ocean, while on the kayaks we were fortunate to see beautiful whales 6 meters from us.

We are so grateful with what Carrie and Ray had created in this beautiful beach at Baja.

Thank you Carrie and Ray,

Hugs and we wish you the best to you and your families.

A little slice of heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven moms had the most amazing trip to El Colibri! The house was so well decorated and so comfortable in the most spectacular setting that we didn't want to leave. There are so many areas to hang out with friends, eat, lounge and read. We did leave to go surf at Nine Palms every day, but spent so much of the day relaxing and enjoying the house. The house had everything we needed to make our meals, which we much preferred to going out. We walked down to the beach and walked the beach every day. Nothing could have made this trip any better.

Great place in a great spot

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great trip. The house was perfect, well stocked, clean and gorgeous. We loved it and would highly recommend the home to anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy all that the east cape has to offer. Thank you Denise & Doug - you all rock!

Spectacular property, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

This property was pure luxury. What makes that so amazing is it is completely off the grid. This house is everything you could possibly want in comfort and convenience. Doug and Denise made sure we had everything we needed. The location on shipwrecks beach was stunning. This is the only place of its kind, that I know of, in the entire East Cape area. Rooms had great air conditioning and the kitchen had everything you could possibly want including a dishwasher. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were roomy with great water pressure. We were six guys down to surf shipwrecks. Plenty of room and we had plenty of entertainment and fun when we were not surfing. I am planning another trip down soon with my wife and some friends. El Calibri is a unique experience that you can not get anywhere else.

Exceptional in every respect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at El Colibri was exceptional in every respect.

The reservation, planning, and payment process was seamless and professional. Carrie and her team were helpful, informative and responsive to all questions and needs.

The home, El Colibri, is located literally beachfront on a white sand beach about 20 minutes up the East Cape. Most days, you wouldn't see a single other person on the secluded, pristine beach out front.

The home is spacious, open, tastefully decorated, and well-stocked. The bedrooms have excellent AC. The large kitchen is well-designed and ready for cooking and barbecues. The infinity pool serves as a perfect center-point for gathering during the day.

We truly loved everything about El Colibri and can't wait to return. We highly recommend it!
