About Us





Cabo Pulmo FishingCABO PULMO is one of Baja’s best kept beach vacation secrets. And BAJA PARADISE’s VILLA & CASA DEL MAR and EL NIDO are the “pearl in the oyster” of the gem known as Cabo Pulmo. Now that you’ve found us, we hope you’ll join us for the best beach vacation you’ve ever had and experience a wonderful holiday “off the beaten track” that we know you won’t soon forget. Our motto is, “If we don’t provide it, then you don’t really need it!”

We are your hosts, Betsy Barrymore Stoll and Sterling Stoll. We have been Baja converts since the late-60’s. VILLA & CASA DEL MAR and EL NIDO are the culmination of our many years of visiting Baja, first by car camping and tenting, then by truck camper and small RV, camping by private aircraft and sleeping under the wing of the airplane, then to the old-style palapa beach “house” that used to be the way it was in Cabo Pulmo, and finally to a large fifth-wheel RV after our palapa house burned down in 1991. Building VILLA & CASA DEL MAR in 1994 and 1995 and EL NIDO in 2000 are the realization of our years-long dream of having real homes at the beach in Baja California Sur, Mexico.

villa-del-mar-beachTo off-set the expense of building and outfitting our little piece of paradise, we decided to offer VILLA & CASA DEL MAR and EL NIDO for luxury guest vacation rentals. Betsy, who is a retired whitewater river outfitter, used her years of taking guests into the wilderness to equip our homes with all the best toys. We have tried to think of every amenity we and our guests might want and have provided them all. While the houses are built from local materials, most everything else has been purchased in the USA, imported to Mexico and shipped or carted down the Baja peninsula. In addition to the large items that were shipped by commercial truck, we have made dozens of 4,000 mile round-trip driving trips with a loaded trailer from Idaho and Southern California to outfit VILLA & CASA DEL MAR, and EL NIDO.  VILLA & CASA DEL MAR and EL NIDO are wonderful homes. They are “not just a rental”, rather they are our personal vacation homes, and you will feel like you are staying in your own home.
