Come LIVE in the famous and growing Baja California wine country known as Valle de Guadalupe and LIVE in our super unique custom solar-powered eco-friendly earthbag dome homes. They are more than just a home, they are a unique experience.
We offer (3) separately unique Eco-Dome Earthbag Casita Homes for long-term rentals; each one has its own unique design giving the homes incredible thermal insulation; especially during the hot summer. When it’s 100F (37C) outside, the inside of the domes typically run about 75F, requiring, on the hottest days of the year, just a fan. No air conditioner is needed. In the winter, when the temperates at night can drop below freezing, each dome comes with a gas heater. Expect to use it about 2-3 months out of the year (Dec. to Feb)
UTILITIES: FREE ELECTRICITY
Each home is Solar Powered and there are NO bills for electricity. (It’s free from the Sun). Each renter will be required to pay for their own water usage. The average cost per home is about 800 pesos per month. (about $ 40 USD per month) and pay for their own gas use. The stove and heaters use gas. The average cost per month is about 800 pesos per month. (about $ 40 USD per month).
We are in a rural part of the Baja and there are NO fiber optic cables to the property. So instead, we use STAR LINK satellite internet service from SpaceX. Downloads can be over 200kbps and uploads hover around 10kpbs. Renters are welcome to use the main property service.
However, for complete control and privacy, it is encouraged that renters order and install their own STAR LINK satellite service that they exclusively control. Ordering and Setup are really easy. We can assist with ordering and set-up. As of 2021, the start-up cost was $ 500. For the best service, it’s $ 99 per month. Consult STAR LINK for set up and monthly prices.
The local telecom, TelNor, says they are currently putting in fiber optics in our neighborhood. They say it will take about 1 year to complete. That will make the cost of internet service go down by 50%
