Baja Off the Grid is an eco retreat property that is all about reconnecting to nature, conservation, and leaving a minimal carbon footprint.

We are the epitome of Glamping (Glamorous Camping) and ask our guests to be mindful of resources and waste when staying at our cliff-side retreat.

1 - We have a limited supply of water in the pila (water tower) on the property. We ask that guests minimize their water usage as much as possible: shorter showers, letting the yellow mellow, and not running the faucets when not in use.

2 - We are 100% solar powered. Which means that during the day you can plug it all in, but at night we ask that you do not charge your devices and that you be mindful of the lights and other electrical devices not in use. There is a backup generator that runs on propane in the case of cloudy days.

*Please no blow dryers, curling irons, toasters, or other appliances with heating elements.

3 - We have a "leave no trace policy" which means you bring back everything you bring. There are dumpsters on the way back to Ensenada that you can use. We do not have regular trash service. However, if you do leave trash behind there is a $6 fee per 90 gallon black plastic bag.

Amenity limitations - NO Blow Dryers, Curling Irons, Toasters or applaiances that ehat up.

Another amazing visit to Igor’s place! He’s added some great features like fast reliable WIFI and a fire pit. The kitchen is very well-appointed. We had so much fun cooking and sharing meals together around the huge table. The area is spectacular with plenty of fun hikes and views from every direction. I’m back home feeling rejuvenated after a perfectly peaceful weekend!

This place is magic! The house is gorgeous and the views can't be beat. Every detail felt carefully crafted to make you feel at home, yet in a luxurious dream! It is secluded enough to feel like you are on a private island, yet the charming and quaint town La Bufadora was just a stones throw away. Igor was accessible and helpful before the trip, and left us in the hands of his trusted local house manager Jose. Jose was kind, welcoming, and ended up becoming someone I would call a friend. He took us horseback riding, wine tasting, and to a local market, all in our short trip. I cannot recommend this place enough. The only down side was having to leave!

This place is a GEM! Everything from the view to the hosts to the recommendations by the concierge service, we can not say enough good things about this place. Keep in mind that this place is OFF THE GRID! So if you're looking to take long hot showers, watch TV before bed, or fans and a/c, move along. You really do not need any of these things when staying here, however!

Staying at Baja of the Grid was a real treat! The house and location were just like they seemed in the pictures. The architecture and decorations within had so much character. We were just a short drive away from La Bufadora and spent the day shopping and eating. Igor was a gracious host and made every accommodation to prepare the house before our arrival. We were very happy with our stay. 5 stars!
