1 of 5 luxury eco properties on our private peninsula, BAJA OFF THE GRID
- English, French, Spanish, Russian
My name is Igor and I am the Golden Keys Concierge at Baja Off the Grid. My family has been taking care of this amazing eco resort for the last 10 years.
Igor purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Igor chose Cabo Punta Banda
There are two words that come to mind when describing this place: EPIC & MAGICAL
What makes this Villa unique
This is one of the only properties where you can truly experience what it is like to live off the grid. Living in tune with nature is far easier than you think and after a day at the resort you quickly realize how simple it is to leave a minimal carbon footprint, while still living in luxury.

Off The Beaten Path Beauty
If there was one thing to take away from this trip, it is that WE collectively as a people do not stop to truly relax and enjoy our surroundings anymore. We are constantly inundated with distractions from our phones, computers and televisions...This place will change all that.
Castillo del Mar is architecturally beautiful with wood beamed ceilings and giant glass windows that open onto the expansive decks over the Pacific ocean. The views are just as they are in the pictures...magical. From the moment you step on the deck there is an overwhelming sense of calmness and peace. The house is appointed with beautiful artwork and modest furnishings.
Igor was a fantastic communicator and contacted me the day before we were arriving to make sure that we had everything we needed. If you need something while you are there, massages, dinner prepared, horseback riding etc. Igor will make it happen for you.
Overall, the trip was fantastic and we had a much needed break from the hustle and bustle of the real world. I hope to be back in Baja and stay on this little slice of heaven sometime soon.
* I would recommend however that groups do not travel here with little children. We traveled with a group of 4 children aged 5 and under and although they had a wonderful time being together (and Igor was fantastic with them), because of the location and the way the house is situated on the cliff, it makes for a very dangerous setting. The house is not set up for young people and their safety. I would recommend families with children 10 and under choose another property until they are a bit older.
Beautiful place with an amazing host!
This was such an amazing trip! The house was breathtaking and comfortable for our large group. It was such a fun and adventurous weekend thanks to our extraordinary host Igor! He planned and coordinated our entire weekend, making everything run as smooth as possible. We had such an amazing time, I'm still dreaming about this place!
Absolutely beautiful, tide pools, natural geysers private beaches
The home was absolutely beautiful and Igor and the other people on the property were very helpful and accommodating. The natural beauty available on the property was unreal, tide pools, private beaches, natural geysers, dramatic views, and relative seclusion it had it all. The only reason I am not giving five stars is that it seemed a bit silly to charge $5 per device for wifi when we were already paying over $1000 dollars for our 2 night stay. Other than that we loved the house and found it easy to work around the eco requirements. We would definitely stay here again, we had a great time.
I am glad that your girlfriend had such an epic birthday and enjoyed the guided sunset hike with the marine geyser. The Baja Birthday Crown we gave her made for some awesome pics! And finding your group ping pong balls in Baja was no easy task either LOL :)
As explained in the guide and in the listing we are "Off the Grid".
Because of this, our utilities: water, gas and especially satellite wifi are 3x what they are typically. The $5 wifi fee is what the Mexican Satellite company charges us. In addition there is a cell tower across the bay, so every phone has full bars and can turn into a hotspot for free.
It should also be noted that each guest paid $55/night to stay on their own private eco peninsula, which is definitely a bargain when factoring in the size of your group, the Million Dollar views, and the breathtakingly raw natural surroundings.
We hope you come down again and get to experience all the new editions we have been making to the peninsula at Baja Off the Grid!
A must stay if you want to get away.
Our family had an amazing and relaxing vacation at this gorgeous home. It’s spacious bedrooms, living room, kittchen made it very comfortable to lounge in. We enjoyed the hikes around the beach areas and the breathtaking ocean scenery and sunsets. A big thank you to Igor and family, for going above and beyond with their hospitality.
Hosting your family on our peninsula was simply EPIC and getting to see the pics of your family at sunset on the veranda was icing on the cake. Please come down and visit us again :)
Description doesn’t do it justice,Breathless Views!!!!
Outstanding property, If you want to getaway we definitely recommend this out of the norm experience. The property was perfect for our large group plenty of room, the large open living area leading into the patio was perfect for Bringing the family together. There was so much to do and not enough time, from the food to the sightseeing and much more like a night out in downtown Ensenada, wine tasting experience and so much more we will need to go back and do the only regret was not booking the full week.The service provided was far beyond what we expected and truly took the experience to the next level.
This place will not disappoint!
We had an amazing time here getting away from the usual. Pictures do not do this house justice, just one sunset from the deck and you'll forget everything! Igor has truly made this a one of a kind destination unlike any I've experienced. His caretaker Jose Luis is a diamond in the rough who will help get the most out of your time if he's available. Drinking coffee while watching the fishing boats come and go, eating mussels from the tide pools, sitting around a campfire on the sea cliff; just a few things I think about daily since being home. Normally I wouldn't return to the same place but this is most certainly an exception. We will be back!!
