We are a family of three boys under 8 and three dogs and just wanted to get away with no TV, iPad, Wifi and just be as a family. Getting there was super simple and Riccardo met us promptly at the agreed time. (We drove a r350 mercedes with a clearance of 5.8 inches if your clearance us equal or greater you will have no problem driving to the ranch). The Cabins are quaint, rustic, and romantic (especially if you don't have three kids with you). We had fun cooking outside, chilling outside, walks, and frankly just doing nothing. The is a ranch within walking distance (30 minutes) or driving - That and i don't say this with hyperbole - has phenomenal food, cold beer, and you can rent horses to ride. Riccardo is great. Simply great! Cant wait to go again!

What an experience! The drive out there was a bit challenging but totally worth it. We asked a lot of our host and he was always helpful and understanding. The place was quiet, peaceful and full of beauty; everyone enjoyed it.

Rancho Callado is an excellent place to isolate you from your daily life, is a beautiful big place in which you are in contact with the nature to relax and chill, the cabin was in great conditions the host had everything for us ready, and he was very gentile, you must bring the appropriate car definitely since to arrive are like 50min unpaved road earth road, but is totally worth it, we love it!

Ricardo's place was a highlight of our entire trip through Mexico and California! He is an awesome host and such a great guy. The ranch is very rustic and full of character. Ricardo took us grocery shopping to get ingredients for tacos and then came up and cooked the meat for us. They were seriously delicious even after all the other amazing tacos we'd eaten in Mexico. Maybe it's because Ricardo's just such a great guy to chat to that made that experience so lovely. We also loved the local restaurant, the horse riding, the archery and just chilling at the ranch playing cards. I can't rave about it enough. Thanks Ricardo!!

If you're a nature lover and looking for a quiet, very simple, rustic place to get far away to, this is perfect. There's lots of land, trees and flowers, horses (and a colt!), birds (even flitting in and out of the house), bees, mountain bikes, long hikes, desert sun, a great sunny, semi-shade patio, no cell reception (except by a haystack on the property) and purposefully, no wifi. Ricardo and his family were wonderful. We had missed an opportunity to stay at Paipai months back due to raining out and they kindly gave us a free weekend to come again which we happily accepted. Ricardo waited for us after a long traffic jam and late arrival so patiently, leading us from Puerto Nuevo through the pretty intense mountainous road in the dark. (Yes, a car with clearance/SUV/truck and a driver with nerves of steel would be a must). The place has wood beamed ceilings, tin roofs, dusty skylights, a bunch of old school decorations, old books and magazines, and probably original furniture and gas and butane appliances from the early mid-20th century. (Like if you want ice, request it and it will be brought in a block in a cooler.) Paipai likely hasn't been renovated in many decades so it's like going back in time. (Kumai seemed a bit newer but with less room, and I think they are building a new house as well.) The next morning, we hiked half an hour through views and horse ranches to the local restaurant, El Vareñero, with a dirt floor with adorable owners. They served amazing birria (goat & bean stew) eggs with salad, beans & handmade tortillas (they grow their own corn), and much needed cold beers and hibiscus (jamaica) iced tea. We made friends with the local characters (one, a race car driver of the Baja 500), and rented horses from the restaurant (150 pesos/$8 USD each) to get us more than half of the way back to Rancho Callado. In the evening, Ricardo, a lovely and active gentleman whose English is perfect, brought us bottled water for the cooler, ice for our drinks, and started an oak wood fire for us to barbecue our dinner. We ate, watched the horses frolic as the sun set, and Ricardo returned later and quietly started a bonfire, giving us sticks for marshmallows. The following morning, it was breakfast and yoga on the patio. We felt privacy and still checked up on. By the way, they don't have a hot tub, but just a regular bathtub with shower (and hot water.) They have a swing set/climbing frame and bikes for kids outside Paipai. If you are afraid of bugs, spiders, high rocky roads, are a clean freak, or need something fancy (a big TV/wifi/cell service), this might not be your thing. But if you want to see stars, spend time with the people you came with, do some dancing, lounging, sunning or reading, and get away from everything, this is great.

Ricardo was the best host! The place is very unique. You definitely need a 4x4 or SUV to get to the cabin but totally worth it for those views. The site is gorgeous, completely silent and peaceful and there is lots to do; archery, hiking, you can bring your ATVS if you want. Will be back soon.

We loved this get away so much this was our second stay! Within 2 months. We live in Orange County so the drive isn't bad. Host is very flexible with checkins & outs which is what I love a lot. Flexible with people & cancelations. Very understanding. I met his family & they are as loving & humble as he. The cabin was comfortable & has mostly everything you need. This time we brought our two dogs & they had a blast too! He was very welcoming of them as well. We actually got a flat tire & host was very helpful & available to help. We hope to visit again for a third time this year. Thank you for sharing your home with my family! Xoxo
