Casa Monica: Cholla Bay Bed & Breakfast

CASA MÓNICA CHOLLA BAY BED & BREAKFAST

A great option for those who want something smaller and more private, Casa Mónica, located on the sandy beach in Cholla Bay, is very popular with guests, many of whom visit over and over. The property boasts sweeping views of Cholla’s beautiful estuary with its extreme tides, and Black Mountain and the Pinacates beyond.

The spacious, spotlessly clean, and wonderfully decorated guest quarters include two bedrooms with a shared bath, a living room with dining area, a fully-equipped kitchen and a huge patio overlooking the water. Activities include walking the beach, exploring the estuary, kayaking, swimming and swinging in the hammock. Guests can read, rock on the glider, swing on the swing and take siestas. In-house therapeutic massages, manicures and pedicures can be arranged. The ways to relax at Casa Mónica are countless!

Casa Mónica is well known for extraordinary breakfasts; delicious, creative and healthy are the bywords. Breakfast is prepared and served in the dining room of the main home, leaving visitors free of the clatter and clutter of preparation. Guests are wowed by the table settings, which are creative, memorable and different each day.

Owned and operated for the past six years by Gretchen Ellinger, Casa Mónica is Gretchen’s dream come true, and it shows. Guests have given rave reviews on TripAdvisor.com, and highly recommend both the property and the hospitality.
