Our third time to stay at Rancho de la Sierra. We enjoy the contrast of feeling like being in the "real" Mexico rather than the hubbub of the tourist areas. Brett and Britta are wonderful hosts. Plenty of privacy or assistance if you need it. We have enjoyed the swimming pool and barbecuing under the palapa. They have also added a great fire pit for the cool winter evenings. Not easy to get to but...

Brett and Britta are experienced, skillful and thoughtful hosts. Communication was excellent in advance of the trip. They have a lovely quiet location in the desert: the very natural landscaping blends right into the surrounding natural areas. Everything is simple, neat and peaceful. The colorful, charming casitas are so perfectly equipped that they are indeed more mini-houses than cabins. Each has its own pleasant outdoor sitting area, but there is also the large palapa for...

I stayed here with three friends and it was a perfect location to relax, unwind and have complete privacy. Brita and Brett were great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. The casitas were great, clean and well appointed, and the palappa by the pool was perfect for hanging out for most of the day; we cooked and ate all our meals there, except breakfast. A truly beautiful spot away from the business of San Jose, yet...

Our casita was clean, organized, and contained everything we could possibly want for our stay. Britta and Brett are terrific hosts and we couldn't have felt more welcome or cared for. Definitely a quiet place away from the crowded resorts and hotels and a fantastic Baja experience. The birds kept us company while we were lounging by the pool and the resident dogs are delightful. The authentic desert grounds are beautifully maintained and the dusty...

First time visitors to Cabo and this was our first stop on a month trip in Mexico. Hosts were very friendly and provided an excellent orientation to the area. The ranch is a peaceful, relaxing place with amazing views, landscaping and surroundings. Short drive from the airport and San Jose, a wonderful town to visit and enjoy great food, music, art and atmosphere. Cabin was clean with modern bathroom, kitchenette and very private. Will definitely...
