Cheryl couldn't have been more welcoming and the place has unique charm. with every amenity we needed. A quiet taste of Mexico "far from the madding crowd" just a short walk to hiking and the ocean. We enjoyed walking the beach, swimming the ocean, and snorkeling among amazing sea life. Would definitely go back, but now we know this is a little late in the season. Thank goodness for the ocean breeze ... hot despite the ceiling fans in July. So my advice is go here and enjoy... but try for a cooler month. Cheryl did say she was probably installing air conditioning though...
This place is more than you will ever expect. In the middle of nowhere you will find a place so quiet, beautiful and impressive. The house is big, clean and comfortable. Cheryl took an eye on preparing everything with love to details. And that is how you feel there .. like home. A big, clean kitchen with everything you need. The inner garden with a grill is perfect to Grill the fish, which you can get fresh directly from the fisherman. And the proximity to the beach with some diving schools is perfect. The ocean is clear and doing scuba diving there is an unforgettable experience. Want to thank Cheryl for that amazing time. You are as extraordinary as the place you are offering. There was no Question or request which you did not answer with passion. Enjoyed the stay so much!! Hope to be there again!!! In that paradise!
My fishing buddy and I stayed in the new "Secret Garden". We found it creatively decorated, clean and quiet. The owner Cheryl gave us a tour of her nicely groomed gounds and casitas, and was helpful with directions and recommendations. It is a short walk to Cabo Pulmo's center which includes restaurants and dive shops and a good location from which to explore the East Cape. We would enjoy staying there again and hope to do so soon.

We spent a spectacular four nights off the grid at Casa Cactus. Cheryl has created a beautiful oasis among the cactus full of birds, bunnies and breezes to cool you down. Our time was spent going to the beaches, hiking the nearby trails in the mornings and ensuring the margaritas were fit for consumption. Happy to report, all was well. We did breakfasts and the occasional evening meals in the well equipped, small outdoor kitchen. Or choose from the Restos in town, a short walk away. Come to Casa Cactus and enjoy if you are looking for a relaxing, quiet respite in the desert by the sea. Sloooooow down, you'll love it.
I spent a wonderful week at Casa Cactus. The upstairs unit gave me marvelous views of both the mountains and the sea. The queen bed was super comfortable. There were screens on all the windows and the door so I fell asleep to the ocean waves and awakened with the song birds. The mini-outdoor kitchen was perfect for the simple meals I wanted to prepare. The property is beautiful and Cheryl welcomes you like an old friend. She has lovingly appointed each living space so you can really relax and not want for a thing. There are bath towels, beach towels, beach bags, beach chairs, some snorkel gear and great books. Just bring yourself. I can't wait to go back!
