About the property


Casa Torote is a short walk to the beach, steps away from a fully stock supermarket, artisanal coffee shop, restaurants, bars and more. The beach is a great spot to start or finish a down-winder (it is the same beach that Baja Joe's kite school starts down-winders from). Wake up, walk to get craft coffee around the corner, enjoy breakfast with stunning views from the deck, relax, swim, snorkel, go kiting, paddling, biking, have a BBQ in the palapa, and finish the day around the fire pit, pool or hot tub!

Casa Torote is transforming during the summer of 2018. We are adding a second small casita in the south east side of the property that will be available for rentals STARTING December 2018. Once ready, we will rent the full property, which will have a total of 3 bedrooms with a queen size bed each plus a sofa bed in each unit. This will allow to sleep 6 people in beds and up to 4 additional people in sofa beds. UNTIL THEN, Casa Torote can only fit 4 people in beds and up to 2 additional people in a sofa bed in the living room.

Pricing will reflect these changes. The prices listed until the end of November 2018 only consider the main casa. The prices listed starting December 2018 consider the full property capacity (main casa + casita).


The main house is modern, spacious, tastefully appointed and well equipped. It has high ceilings with many windows to enjoy the views. The main floor features an open kitchen / living room area, with a half bathroom for guests. The guest bedroom is on the main floor and features a private sink and shower. The living room has a convertible bed that can comfortably fit 2 kids or 1 adult. There is a storage room in the back to keep your sports equipment safe. The main bedroom is on the second floor and is only accessible through an outdoor set of stairs. Please note that while this is an attractive feature for many, families with young children need to be aware that the upstairs and downstairs floors are not connected with an internal staircase. Guests who stay in the upstairs bedroom will wake up to a breathtaking sunrise over the ocean from your bed!

ABOUT THE CASITA (available starting December 2018):

The casita is a studio concept with a spacious feel. Similar to the main casa, it will be modern, tastefully appointed and well equipped. The layout from north to south includes a small front deck, a living room behind wall to wall sliding doors, a kitchen with a dual purpose center island (cooking and dining), a bedroom divided by a half wall, closet, and full bathroom (no tub). The casita also features a small storage unit to keep equipment safe. From outside, you can access a roof deck with beautiful ocean and mountain views to enjoy the sunrise, sunset and beautiful starry nights.


The common areas include a beautiful palapa, a pool (4 feet deep), and hot tub. The palapa has a bar in the middle, a long cement counter top with a double sink and a large charcoal grill for BBQs, a half bathroom for guests and a changing room for when you come back from kiting. There is also an outdoor shower and hose for rinsing off after kiting sessions. There is also a large rack to hang and dry your wetsuits and gear.

We designed Casa Torote to fit larger groups and thus we prefer to rent the full property. In the event that a guest only wants the main house for at least a week, we are open to renting it separately at a discounted price with the condition that you are 100% OK with us renting the casita to different guests with the same rights to use the common areas.

Excellent location, wonderful owners and unbeatable value!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Casa Torote! The house is new, very clean and had all the amenities we needed for a successful fishing trip. The palapa was great for hanging out in the evenings and the pool was kept clean during our week there. We initially had issues with the internet which the property managers addressed immediately. The owners and management obviously pay close attention to important details and I would definitely consider staying here again in the future!

We loved our stay in casa torote. This house is very comfortable for two couples. Nice open layout.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay in this tastefully designed home. Every morning we took a short walk to the sea for a swim The morning sunrise from the upper bedroom was amazing. This home is very well thought out for simplicity, comfort aesthetic and integration with the water activities and the sea. We enjoyed the close proximity to a little market, cafe, and local restaurants. It’s a great location for kite surfing, close proximity to multiple launching beaches and good views and vistas of wind patterns on the bay.

Meme and Amy were great to deal with. We found our stay at casa torote to be very positive and memorable experience.

Thank you Meme and Amy !

The Best !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in La Ventana on four different occasions in the winter.

This time , in January, was our favorite. The location, the amenities, the support, the beautiful layout and design. We were completely at ease and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Additionally , we were lucky with the wind for kiting.....14 days out of 16!

Thanks for the great abode!

Better than an all-inclusive

  • 5 of 5

Great location and central to everything. Kijote coffee shop and star market just outside the front gate. The house itself was well appointed with all the conveniences to make it like a home away from home. Sunrise views from master bedroom and sunsets from upper deck were outstanding. Will certainly consider this property again for an annual trip
