Let the sounds of the surf lull you to sleep at night in this new simply stylish and relaxing one room studio apartment. Located in a quiet and secure community of small homes and condos a half a mile from the apartment to the water, it takes most folks five to ten minutes to walk to the beach or like two minutes to drive (nice if you want to carry a bunch of stuff). Todos Santos is less than 10 miles away or a 15 minute drive and Pescadero is right next door so it will take you about 5 mins by car to reach Baja Beans or the Pemex/Oxxo. Enjoy the communal pool, jacuzzi and seasonal restaurant on site.
This newly built cool, bright and airy second story studio apartment has an urban vibe with Mexican touches and is one of the best values in Cerritos! It's the top floor of a 2 story duplex. To see the lower unit check out "Cerritos Desert Garden Surf Escape" here on airbnb.
This new studio apartment is the top floor of a 2 story duplex accessed by a SPIRAL STAIRCASE. It is approximately 500 sq ft total, 250 sq ft inside and 250 sq ft outside. Guests really love the outdoor kitchen/dining/hang out area under the palapa with views of the beach and mountains. Groups of 4, families with kids, and folks with long boards often prefer the lower unit bc it's larger, has an outdoor shower and hose, and there is a fence to put your boards behind so you don't have to lug them up the spiral stairs. Ask me about a discounted price if you'd like to rent both apartments.
This apartment has PRIVATE HIGH SPEED WiFi internet! Most of the other rentals (and homes) here in the Villas De Cerrritos Beach all share one pretty unreliable and slow communal hotspot with very limited bandwidth that can only be accessed outside by the pool, not in the apartment like mine. Please be aware that when other rentals here in the Villas say they have WiFi they are most likely talking about this one shared outside hotspot.
Inside you’ll find- a brand new queen sized bed, brand new love seat (that's a double sized sleep sofa), a coffee table, 2 ceiling fans, a new ac unit, 4 bed pillows, extra blankets, curtains, 2 night stands with reading lamps, a large dresser, dimable in ceiling halogen lights, brand new flat screen TV (only for DVDs), DVD player, private DVD library (more movies to borrow in office), cool art, books, playing cards, and a music player for ipods ( apparently it's made for older ipods, has the metal plate that you place into the bottom of the ipod and unfortunately I don't have a line in there at the moment but if you bring one you can use that), etc. The bathroom has a shower, large vanity, large mirror, a nightlight, lots of hooks and a window with desert views.
Outside you'll find a 250 sq ft palapa covered terrace with a small kitchen that includes a small gas range and oven with four burners, mini fridge (with very small freezer), a sink, a cabinet and drawers. It's stocked with pots and pans, dishes, utensils, a french press or coffee maker, salt and pepper, ice trays, etc. It also has a table with 2 chairs, a hammock chair and extra seating is provided by a long wrap around built in banquette. Great views of the beach and mountains! Included with your rental are beach/pool towels (in the apartment, not in the office). And I try to provide a cooler, beach umbrella, beach chairs and the use of my charcoal bbq grill (it's kept on ground level) but can't guarantee these things.
The spiral staircase leads to the roof where there are amazing 360 views of the beach and mountains. It's the perfect spot for a surf check, sunset and sunrise viewing and star gazing. It's also great for doing yoga. The roof access is shared with the downstairs apartment.
Please keep in mind while looking at all the places for rent in the community that each is individually owned and therefore they are not the same. Here's why I think my places are special!- I've expanded and renovated my units and they contain many amenities that the other places probably don't have like- private WiFi in the apartments, enclosed bathrooms, new ac units, curtains, extra pillows, TVs with DVD players, kitchen cabinets, sleep sofas, etc. This bungalow has more spacious grounds than most of the other rentals here. It's in a small house on a small piece of land, whereas the newer units here (called palapas and casitas) are all side by side with no land separating them and are accessed by a narrow pathway enclosed with a tall fence. My place has no neighbors on the backside.
Disponible para huéspedes

Because of the open sides on the terrace and the stair access, I don't rent this apartment to families with children under about 7 years old as it's just too dangerous for them. My downstairs apartment (also here on airbnb) should work well for you though : )
Dogs and cats live in and run around the complex fyi.
You can buy giant bottles of purified drinking water in the office inexpensively (exchange the empty one in the rental) and I have a dispenser/pump to use with it. If you have them carry it for you, tip them 5 or 10 pesos please. ( FYI you can buy them offsite at the aqua purificado places for 10 pesos with exchange of empty bottle).
Be sure to let me know if you will be using the sleep sofa so that I can have it made up for you.
Be sure to bring warm clothes! Long pants and sweatshirts are often needed in the evenings and mornings. Some times of the year you may also want a spring wetsuit for surfing.
Always, use caution in the ocean! Pay attention to the waves and current and what others around are doing, don't get caught in a rip tide. don't swim next to the rocks! Occasionally there are times when it's not safe to enter the water.
Because of the low side walls on the terrace and the open stair access, I generally don't rent this apartment to families with children who are toddlers to say about 5 years old as it's just too dangerous for them. My downstairs apartment (also here on airbnb) should work well for you though : )
Please READ my WHOLE LISTING and my HOUSE MANUAL (that will show up in your itinerary after you make your reservation) as they include pertinent information for your stay. Between my detailed listing and house manual most of your questions should be answered.
Smoking only outside. Quiet time is 10pm to 7am.

I was born and raised in Virginia but moved to San Francisco in the 80's and just returned to Virginia in 2015. I have traveled extensively in the United States (driven across the country over 50 times), Central America, Europe and South East Asia. I've been living in my little Baja beach house part time since 2012. When I am there I live downstairs with my dog Lucky. I was a DJ at KUSF for 12 years. I can definitely communicate in Spanish, studied French for 5 years but forget most of it, and I used to be fluent in Indonesian. I go by my nickname Squash (Calabacita in Spanish).
