My boyfriend and I spent 7 days at Bobbi's Baja Beach Oasis during January 2014 and we can't wait to go back!
Location: Quiet and secluded with wonderfully equipped casitas surrounding a nice pool (cold, but hey...it's January so that was expected), outdoor shower (I only showered outside the whole trip), copper hot tub (I recommend relaxing it in with a nice bottle of wine while looking at the gorgeous night sky and listening to the waves crash on shore), fire pit and main house. Traffic noise wasn't an issue even though it's nicely situated off the 19.
Atmosphere: We instantly bonded with the 2 other couples were staying for a portion of the time we were. It was fun to meet them and we hope to see them again soon! The surrounding communities don't have the hustle or bustle of Cabo (we actually never bothered to visit there but I had been on a previous trip because we loved where we were) and have the proper Baja vibe--everything is laid back and rich with character.
Beaches: Dark blue and turquoise water filled with dancing manta rays and whales playing just off shore. It was my first and best whale watching experience.
Things we did: ran on the deserted beaches, boogied boarded, off roaded and explored the area (we rented a 4WD Jeep) and found some wonderful little spots up the coast, too. Bonfire on the beach courtesy of Bobbi and another guest staying at the time. Todos Santos is the largest nearby "city" with lots of of restaurants, bars, artists, etc.
Food: Bobbi made some wonderful pizza (I'd love that sauce recipe!!) and margaritas while we were there. She also has some wonderful recommendations for restaurants nearby or buy some produce and cook your own and share if you like because that's always nice.
Bobbi: A wonderful hostess who shares her home, family (pets, kids, friends), and love of Baja with you. We're so happy to consider her a friend.
Next time we go for a long visit: Explore the mountains, fish......endless possiblities.
Should you go? Absolutely if you're the type of person who is up for a bit of adventure and perhaps some much needed relaxation with friends you haven't met yet.
Overall: It was the best vacation I've had. I loved it. I can't say enough positive things about my experience.
