Halfway between Cabo and Todos Santos is a beach locals call Shipwreck Point where at times during low tide you can spot an old bronze propeller and a few wooden planks. Interesting rock formations create numerous tide pools teeming with sea life, miles and miles of undisturbed beach and sunsets that words cannot describe. This idyllic site is home to Hacienda del Ocaso, one of only five estates on this most magnificent stretch of beach.
Completely walled and gated, the compound offers six bedrooms and seven baths situated on over an acre and half with 200 feet of deeded beachfront. The house is elevated 35 feet above the beach offering panoramic views of whales, mantas and porpoise. Breaking waves are less than 30 yards away from the oceanfront patio providing the perfect soundtrack for whale watching or stargazing.
The main house entry opens into the first of two living areas with comfortable seating, a large screen television and bathroom. An adjacent office and reading room with great internet provide quiet areas to work. The recently remodeled kitchen features all new Mexican tzalum hardwood cabinets and granite countertops, Subzero and GE appliances, double pantry and plenty of freezer and refrigeration to accommodate large groups. Kitchen island seats six for an impromptu cooking class!
The upper level hosts the master bedroom and bath with custom doors and cabinetry, American Standard whirlpool tub, shower, double sinks and 200 square foot walk-in closet. A spacious exterior patio connects master suit to upper level living room with seating for all. Send the kids upstairs to watch a movie while the adults relax downstairs!
Access to each of the five guest suites is from the inner courtyard and through individual entries. An accommodating choice of beds as well as private baths and cozy sitting areas allows sleeping for up to 12-18 guests.
Discover a welcoming interior garden patio with outdoor dining, refreshing pool and spa or stroll outside the courtyard to the 6000 square foot oceanfront terrace with additional outdoor seating, bbq area with six-burner grill and easy beach access to over 4 miles of unspoiled beauty. At the entry to the property is a detached two-bedroom, two-bath casita; adequate housing for staff as well as gated-entry security.
This estate is completely off-grid and offers a maintenance free solar installation supported by an automatic 11 kw back-up Generac generator and two smaller generators. Recently upgraded solar power system utilizes lithium-ion batteries for long life. Water is trucked in with storage for 6500 gallons, more than enough to meet needs for personal use, landscaping and pool. Easy access from Highway 19 with well-maintained quarter mile road leading to the property, far away from dust and highway noise.
Two laundry centers, two propane gas tanks with 500-liter capacity, three separate water heaters, more than enough storage as well as detached two-car garage. Remaining acreage suggests organic gardens, an orchard of fruit trees and a chicken coop making Hacienda del Ocaso a magnificent sanctuary miles away from city hustle and bustle.
Breathtaking sunsets, star-filled skies and the sounds of crashing waves take center stage here at Km 82.5.
