Reviewed 31 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This is our second stay .
Very much enjoy the remoteness away from the rat race of places like Cabo.
Britta and Brett are great hosts. Nice clean Casitas with your own cooking facilities. Visit to enjoy the remoteness, quiet, walks in the desert,native plants birds and other wildlife
Be sure to talk to Brett about his organic chickens.

Reviewed 28 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a great time at the Mini mountain resort. We lounged and read books. It was a nice break from devices and t.v!! We hiked and bird watched and just plain relaxed. The views are really pretty from the cottages. And the hosts Britta and Brett were really great and easy going. We really appreciated and enjoyed the dinner they prepared for us the first night. Great food and conversation! The cottages are really clean an very comfortable.
Thanks again!

“This is a wonderful choice if you want to try something a little different.”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My husband and I had planned a stay at Minimountain Resort for last Fall, but only a few weeks before we were to leave, Hurricane Odile hit the area head on and we decided to postpone our trip. Well, we’ve just returned from a one week stay and it was worth the wait. We had an absolutely wonderful time. Brett & Britta met us at the airport car rental office and then we followed them out to their ranch, arriving to our casita, already stocked with our groceries – what a treat! The casita was adorable inside and out, well equipped, immaculately clean, and just steps away from a beautiful pool area, where we spent time every day. It was easy to get up at sunrise each morning, pour coffee, and sit out on the patio watching the birds with the soft sound of cowbells in the distance. Both of us have stressful jobs here at home and this little resort provided just what we needed, a place to just kick back and relax in a peaceful, quiet setting. If you are able to tear yourself away, San Jose Del Cabo is just a short drive away, Cabo San Lucas is not too much farther on, and there are many beaches to choose from in between. Brett and Britta, you are wonderful hosts - thank you for your hospitality, for making us feel special, and for a truly memorable holiday!
