“Another 5-Star Review for MiniMountain Resort!”
Reviewed March 16, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Staying at the MiniMountain Resort, a little north of the Los Cabos Airport, made me feel the most relaxed and rested I've been in at least a year. I loved everything about this place and my time there. It was a beautiful and unique setting, my casita was welcoming, private, clean, and comfy, and I felt very safe on the gated ranch in a quiet area. I loved all the birds and butterflies, and the plentiful and varied desert plants!

Let me tell you about Britta and Brett, hosts and owners of the ranch. They are such caring, generous, and interesting people! They made my vacation very special, with a warm welcome at the airport, dinner on their huge covered patio with a stunning view, stocking my casita with carefully shopped for food - including wonderful local tortillas, organic tomatoes, and their own organic eggs and chicken - always making sure I had everything I needed, and Britta even went with me to the beach one day! We also had dinner out one night in San Jose - so fun!

Brett and Britta creating and sharing this wonderful place is a gift I deeply appreciate, and I will always remember this vacation. I so look forward to returning next year!

“Magical Paradise in the Baja”
Reviewed March 3, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This is my third time staying and I am never disappointed.
Brett & Britta are amazing hosts that are able to anticipate your every need without being intrusive.
The casitas are clean and well appointed. I love to sit on the patio and drink in the peace and serenity the property has to offer. The pool and party palapa is your private beach area to soak up the sun.
It’s not far from the airport or San Jose del Cabo but you feel like you are on your own private remote resort. Where one can truly relax and unwind.
Definitely enjoy the farm fresh eggs and chicken that Brett raises for local restaurants and hotels.
Warm sun & hospitality. Truly a magical paradise you will not regret visiting.

“The photos don't lie!”
Reviewed January 21, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Our stay was relaxing and a lovely emersion in the vegetation and birds of that area. We went to sleep to the tinkling bells of local goat herd and awoke to a chorus of doves. Be sure to enjoy eggs and chicken from their little chicken ranch. If interested Brett will give you a tour. Also pick up fresh tortillas in Santa Anita on the way in. The casita was very comfortable and private.
We arrived in December to a lush environment as the previous months brought a lot of rain. That rain also affected the sandy road through the valley and up hill to the mesa. However, Britta lead us in from the airport and successfully guided us up to paradise made even more spectacular by the adventure getting there. So worth it!

“Gem in the desert”
Reviewed January 10, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Not everyone will like this place. But everyone who DOES self select for it will ADORE it. Yes, you're a bit away from San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and the resort aspect of things. Yes, cell reception is fine but you need to walk about 50 yards to a nice spot next to the main house for wifi. Yes, the dirt road is about three miles long and there's one hill on it requiring steady nerves the first time you go up. But when you do get up that hill, you find three perfect casitas for two, in the midst of a landscape you'd have a hard time matching outside of a national park. We revel in the outdoors, and woke up deeply happy every morning for 10 days, having breakfast on our porch with the birds, grateful for the way that Brett and Britta have landscaped, cared for and shared their 27 acres of Baja. The pool and palapa that are steps from the casita add immensely to the pleasure. The overall location was also perfect for what we like to do -- take day trips in every direction from a base camp. The casita and palapa were well equipped for the cooking we like to do for ourselves. And Brett and Britta were generous, accommodating, knowledgeable, helpful and interesting, while leaving us blissfully at peace most of the time. I could bore you with details, but if you read any four or five of the reviews you'll get the picture. If this is your KIND of preferred accommodation, you will love it here.

“The Most Relaxing Holiday We've Ever Taken!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

person found this review helpful

The casita, the hosts, the ambiance... I cannot say enough wonderful things about this holiday! We are usually the 'typical tourists' - running around trying to do and see everything - but for the first time in our lives, we were so totally relaxed, we spent a few days doing nothing but swimming in the pool, reading our books and more swimming in the pool. We did go into Cabo San Lucas and Cabo San Juan and we did see some of the tourist attractions...but the Britta and Brett are the consummate hosts and made us so welcome and comfortable, we just relaxed at the pool, under the 'party palapa!' Our casita had everything we needed, so every morning was spent eating breakfast outside, then reading on our deck. We are definitely coming back!

“Best Little Resort on the Baja”
Reviewed April 22, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Travelled the Baja from one end to the other and can attest that Minimountain Resort at Rancho de la Sierra is the one place I will return to year after year. Wanting to unwind before tackling the 5 Stars or Condos this is the place. Wonderful reception from Brett and Britta to the casitas which were crisp and clean to the crystal clear pool everything was magnificent. I've never relaxed more in Mexico. I don't give out 5 Star ratings often but this place needs to be experienced to be believed. Just breathe!!
