While you don't have the run of the house like you might have in some B&B, you will certainly be very satisfied with the accomadations and cleanliness...ie ....excellent. For this part of the world you will be very pleasantly surprised and we will be back!!! Also if you happen to be a pilot exploring the BAJA, you can land at Hotel Serenidad and walk about 50 yards to this little B&B!

Baja is the tops in the world for the new passtime of whale watching, because here, you get to be up close and personal with mother and baby whales in Laguna San Ignacio.
Each year the whales seem to get tamer, and interaction increases. The whales are as interested in people as vice versa! Staying at Casa Granada, in Mulege, is the civilized way to make this trip. Accomodations over on the Pacific coast are in tents, so Baja styled luxury of this B&B is a huge improvement. One can hire a van to drive over, or like we did, fly over by private plane from the strip located 100 yards away. This beautiful stone villa, now features 4 upstairs rooms, some interconnect with a viewing lounge, and two casitas, with their own kitchens. Perfect for long term holidays. The property is shaded by date palms, fronts on the Mulege estuary, and has views of the Sea of Cortez.
There are no accomodations in the area up to the standards of Casa Granada.

My husband, myself and our daughter stayed for eight days at Lena and Kristian's wonderful casita. Lena was extrememly conscientious in checking in with us and making sure that our vacation was going the way we planned:a cave painting tour, private Spanish lessons, trips into the warm and inviting town of Mulege and good snorkeling sites. Lena was a wealth of local information and she gave us some terrific recommendations for restaurants and interesting sites. My daughter enjoyed the freedom of playing with their wonderful dog, Bella and we felt so relaxed and cozy in our beautiful courtyard outside the casita where we could cook all our meals when we wanted, sit and read, and play intense card games of Heart into the night. We highly recommend this wonderful spot and our family plans on returning in the future.

My aunt and I embarked on a road trip from San Miguel de Allende in central Mexico to Los Angeles. We decided to take the Mazatlan - La Paz ferry and drive up the Baja Peninsula which neither of us had ever done. We made no prior reservations anywhere not being certain how far we might get, or want to get, in any given day. This worked quite well. At Mulege, we dropped in to Casa Granada in the late afternoon by almost literally stumbling upon it. The proprietors were very accommodating even with this short (or rather no) notice. Casa Granada, we soon learned, is in an excellent location on the estuary near the boat launch. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the proprietors friendly, knowledgable and sophisticated. They arranged fishing for us on the spot with an excellent skipper and recommended a great place for dinner. This was an amazing level of accommodation given that we gave them no notice of our arrival. This is a truly great place within a great place. I recommend Casa Granada very highly and would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Mulege on the Sea of Cortez in Baja California Sur is a small friendly Mexican pueblo that is blessed with great people and fantastic scenery. This is not the place to go if you want all the glitz and glamour of the Cabo region, but for a step back in time to old town Mexico this is your place. Mulege has a number of good eateries, a bank with an ATM, post office, laundry mat, an interesting prison converted to a museum and a Jesuit Mission from the 1700's. The town has a grand spirit of history and of renewal.

The Casa Granada is located on the south side of the Mulege river almost at its confluence with the Sea of Cortez. The large main house is built of native rock, high ceilings, tremendous tile work and stone walkways which meander under a multitude of palms and flowering fauna. Kayaks can be launched directly from in front of the inn or you can just take in the view from any of the outdoor patios. However, the secret to the Casa Granada are the two casitas located behind the inn.

The casitas offer the independent traveler an Oasis which has all the accoutrements one would wish to find. They share a large enclosed patio with bougainvillea, cactus and citrus plants surrounding an exterior kitchen area where each casita has it's own sink and propane oven. Also available is a fully stocked pantry with many cooking utensils, small wares, local spices, a blender and even a microwave. There is a built in high BTU propane burner and a charcoal Bar-B-Que. The visitor can prepare anything they catch themselves or buy from the local fishing men who at times have shrimp and/or a variety of seasonal local fish (yellow fin tuna, roosterfish, sea bass and dorado).

The casitas themselves are one bedroom high ceiling spacious units. They have a refrigerator, a coffee maker and dishware for four. The best part is they have no television or phone. However cell phone coverage is excellent and full WIFI service is available. A new HVAC unit is available which helps on cool nights or warm spring afternoons. The beds were comfortable and storage was adequate.

We have enjoyed Mulege so much we have built a home there ourselves - enjoy the Casa Granada on your next visit.

We planned a driving trip to Mulege, traveling with our two dogs and had done a great deal of research on where to stay. Casa Granada was our choice because of its location near the mouth of the river, the rate for a month's stay in a casita and the positive reviews from TA. The casita was pleasant enough and the outdoor kitchen had basic supplies. However, from the beginning we felt little warmth or hospitality from the owners. For example, we were never invited in for that margarita that several reviewers write about or for anything else--much less lively conversation! We were criticized for how much drinking water we were using. And at one point, when the wi-fi for the casitas broke down and the only working wi-fi was inside the big house, we were asked to use the big house system on the front patio and not to walk through the house to get there because “this is our home”. We thought this was a little strange because at times there were B&B occupants walking around in their “home”. After about two weeks, when the maid had been in, we were told our dogs could not get on the bed with us because they might have parasites (nope), there was no dry cleaner in Mulege, the blanket might fall apart in the washing machine (we wondered how the bedding did get washed), and an allergic guest could suffer. We wondered, were the owners having a really difficult patch? It was quite a baffling experience and had we been spoken to pleasantly, much of the negative communications--of which there were more--would have been tolerable. However, we were spoken to as errant children rather than responsible 60 + year olds. We left a week early (no suggestion of refund or requests for feedback about our stay) and were relieved. We were saddened by this experience, as the location is very nice and Mulege itself is wonderful and truly not to be missed! Next time, we will stay at Cliff's Place, which has the true Baja spirit, and is comfortable and genuinely dog-friendly...sleeping with your dogs (or not) appears to be pro forma. If you do choose a casita at Casa Granada, be aware that we were told that housekeeping service is extra, as is breakfast in the B&B.

We feel that this review needs some comments from us to clarify some points.
These guests felt that they were treated differently from other quests. True, we did not invite them for margaritas and chat because we felt that they did not appreciate our hospitality and did not respect our property. Their dogs were running lose, chewed up the sprinkle system, pooped in the yard and slept in the bed. So I did have to point out that we have some basic rules for accommodating pets and expect them to follow them. It is too bad that their age they still do not get it.
We do not charge for cleaning usually, but in this case the maid had to spend an extra hour cleaning the room which was full of god hair and dirt.
We buy drinking water in the store and therefore ask people to use it only for drinking, not for washing and such.
We do not have a dry cleaning service in Mulege. It does not mean though that we do not wash the blankets. I just have to do it by hand. So I asked these people not to let their dogs in the bed.
We pride ourselves in keeping the premises and the rooms clean. It is not easy. These people were walking back and forth though our house just to get from the back patio to the front, although there nice side walks.
Lastly, the guests booked the casita on a monthly basis and were offered a special deal ($30 a day,which is 60% off of our usual rate), so when they left 3 days earlier there was no question that any refund is due.
We are glad that they are not planning to stay with us again.

My wife and I stayed with Lena and Kristian for a week in January 2010 when we were looking for a place to buy. We stayed in one of the self-contained casitas as we like to cook and look after ourselves, but we caved in and took advantage of one of Lena's memorable breakfasts and both put on a couple of pounds. L & K are very knowledgeable and intelligent people, with a special sense of humour, and they provided us with a lot of information about Mulege, and places to see and visit. They invited us round for a Margarita on the balcony of their wonderful hotel, which is an amazing piece of local architecture. The town was still cleaning up from last September's hurricane, but we had a great time.
