About Bret townley
This house is my pride and joy that reflects my love for Baja!
Bret townley purchased this House in 2006
Why Bret townley chose Punta Chivato
We chose this location for our vacation home because of the vast beauty of Baja and our love of the ocean.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy the sun rising out of the sea every morning. On a full moon it also rises out of the sea and is quite spectacular. The fishing, diving, kayaking and snorkeling are unbelievable. We also enjoy a long stroll along the beach shelling and finding whatever treasures the sea might wash ashore. The locality of 2 towns for shopping and other amenities are a plus. Local Mexicans are very friendly and helpful. We have a full time caretaker to help with your needs.

Exceed your expectations
Everything was great, property manger was there and within a phone call away- beach /water are both beautiful- pool/jacuzzi both functional and clean - kitchen had enough silverware ,plates and glasses. Parking of vehicles were secured. Refrigerator worked great. The small town of Palo Verde has a small market for extra supplies.
Great get away!
Our family was looking for something to get away from the crazy busy lives we lead. We found it! We had a beach all to ourselves for our family to play and explore. Brett was has an incredible home that allowed us find freedom and get reconnected. He was super responsive to all our questions and helped us trouble shoot any issues we had. Thank you!
I am very happy that your family had a great stay! Wonderful guests and hope to see you return soon!
Todo muy bien buena estancia gracias
Las instalaciones y casa muy bien Solo el refrigerador no enfriaba suficiente y la luz pero entendimos que no se podía usar todo en un mismo tiempo pero si estuvimos muy cómodos y el sr Manuel muy amable siempre estuvo al pendiente muchas gracias por todo.
Pues el refrigerador se funciona bien es que no cerraron la puerta bien por que tenia demasiado de comida en el refri por eso. La casa no tiene cables de luz solo se quedan del solar por el dia y un generador en la noche. Habia 16 personas y la casa no aguanta tanto personas en la casa nomas estar 8 o 10 maxima y le explicaba eso antes llegan. Si mi gerente sr juan es muy amable y lo cuida la casa muy bien y es un buen hombre . Me alegro mucho que les gusto y todo bien.
BADASS PLACE! This is REAL Mexico
This place is on my TOP 3 places to stay in Mexico! Not very many places where you get your own huge house to yourself....right on the beach. Get to do whatever you want, when you want it. Authentic mexican feel and luxury living at its finest!! You won't regret your stay here.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay! I hope to see you again soon!
An excellent choice!
The house is amazing, very clean and very spacious, the stay was very comfortable.
The pool and jacuzzi very clean, the beach and the view is awesome.
We will definitely go back.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return!
Impressive property does not live up to its billing and is not good value
Positives first. The house is impressive with 4 bedrooms each with private bath and an 'open concept' entrance/kitchen/dining/living area opening to a partly covered deck with the pool and looking over the beach. There was lots of room for the 7 adults in our party. We got a small taste of the high end homes neighbourhood by hanging out a bit at the local bar/restaurant. We regularly met folks on the beach. We enjoyed kayaking in the Bay in front of the house particularly paddling with the dolphins. There are local things to see ... having a 4WD is a requirement.
Negatives. The pool and jacuzzi had water but did not work for us. The water is not treated and the pool is not maintained for use. We could not figure out the jacuzzi heating system and eventually just gave up on this aspect of the vacation home advertising. Considering only this element of the property we consider the rate over-priced.
Another negative is that the home is not supported by a local property manager. We arrived to no water for the first 24 hours and problems with hydro that had to be worked through. I do commend Bret Townley for aggressively arranging to have the pump replaced. However there were still other lesser issues (such as the pool/jacuzzi) and while we asked for help, no one was available on-site to solve problems. The house is curiously not set up for groups; the dining room table did not seat our party and there was not sufficient tableware.
Yes of course the house has a caretaker (anybody that owns a house in Mexico knows this.) The caretaker had gone to the States to visit family and I had told the guests in advance that I had hired someone else for their stay. Yes the jacuzzi had a stuck valve so it was not operating correctly and I had to bring a new one down from the States and has since been fixed and it is back to normal. I counted 5 chairs at the table and another 4 at the bar? The house can accomodate 8? And 4 spoons were missing but there is another box in the garage? As far as pricing goes these guests paid $54.00 a night per person. I dont think you will find a better bargain in Mexico for your own house on the beach (off the grid) that has whale sharks and dolohins swimming by daily! Far from over-priced!
There is a full time caretaker available to help with the house or any questions or activities you may have. Boat ramp nearby. Golf course 9 hole desert style 2 miles away. Whale watching sites nearby. Cave painting tours. Restaurant and bar near house also. We have 2 kayaks for your enjoyment.
