Overview

Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4 adults and two children)

This unique house is a 3 bedrooms beach house with pool designed by architect Jorge Gracia recently featured in in the architectural books '21st Century - 150 of the World's Best' and 'Architecture Now - Houses', published by TASCHEN.

The architecture mixes pure modernism and Mexican rustic style in a unique combination, allowing guests to experience simple but sophisticated comfort in a tasteful minimalist environment. Most furnishing are custom designed and hand crafted by local artisans.

The concept behind the design is to recreate the spirit of the vacation house of the fifties and sixties where family and friends would gather in a place without pretense or luxury to enjoy each other's company.

To that effect, the house is composed of three simple bedrooms disposed around a central living space which includes a kitchen with bar and a living room area opened to a terrace which extends and ends at the edge of the pool.

Things To Do:: Sunbath on the terrace and swim in your private pool while looking at the ocean.

Take mile long walks on the vast empty beach located right in front of the house, as you watch whales jump in and out of the sea (January to March).

Surf one of the many great surf beaches in the area or swim at the local beaches (Note: swimming in front of the house is not recommended due to strong currents).

Catch your own fish from the beach or explore the wilderness of the Baja desert.

Visits art galleries, dine in town at one the first class restaurants or at one of the many delicious local taco stands.

Go horsebackriding on the beach.

Gaze at the stars in the perfectly clear nights gently cooled by the ocean breeze.

The possibility are endless...

A special place to relax and enjoy company:: Our wish is to foster interaction between guests in a relaxing environment away from modern life disturbances so we have no TV or video games.

We have a music player with a CD library of world music, jazz and other relaxing music (you can connect your ipod) and a small library with interesting books in english and french as well as cards and board games.

If you wish to watch movies, just bring your laptop and a bunch of DVDs.

We have no internet access in the house but it is easily available in town for free at several cafes so you can check your email in front of an espresso.

Review #6324487 "R&R at Casa Moderna"



My husband, daughter and I had the opportunity to spend 4 days at Casa Moderna this summer and enjoyed every minute of it. There is a beautiful beach for walking right out front; surfing and beach club at Cerritos Beach is just about a 15 minute drive to the south. The pool is wonderful for dips throughout the day. Our stay at the house was like living in a piece of modern art; the innovative use of materials and clean lines are breathtaking. The town is a short, albeit a bit bumpy, drive away as most of the residential roads around Todos are still unpaved. La Esquina on the way into town was our favorite place to start the day with healthy breakfast/juice bar (and wifi if you need it). The house has a well-equiped mini kitchen if you're inpsired to cook. This would be a perfect house for individuals or a family who just want to relax, unwind and spend quality time together!

Family Vacation.

This home was very well equiped, very comfortable, with a beautiful and peaceful setting. We enjoyed Todos Santos very much. Elena & Aaron were very helpful and available.
Thanks Greg for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We hope to return again next year.

The only equipment that seemed to be missing was a microwave to warm up food. Other than that, everything was just like home.

Our trip was long but well worth it. Casa Moderno was perfect for us.

Sincerely, Dick & Ann

nous avons passe un excellent sejour dans cette maison de todos santos , la region est tres belle todos santos est un tres beau village mexicain avec beaucoup de boutiques de gallery et de restaurants

la piscine privee sur la terrasse est super
quelques petites remarques si je peux me permettre l' éclairage est tres faible dans le salon et cela n est pas tres agreable pour lire le soir
nous étions 5 et la maison ne dispose que de 4 tabourets pour les repas !! il y en avait donc toujours un qui etait debout
mais nous avons passe avec nos enfants qui habitent mexico et notre fils une vraiment superbe semaine

Paradise at the end of a dirt road.

  • 5 of 5
I'm tempted not to write this review because I'd like to be sure the house is always available for our return.

But that would be selfish.

Casa Moderna is EXACTLY what it looks like in the photographs. The shots aren't gussied up for the magazines, enticing you with false promises. What you see is what you get: a minimal, clean aesthetic with the focus clearly on the stunning ocean view and peaceful quiet of the area.

Waking up here every morning, clear blue skies and ocean rolling in the near distance, will make you wonder what your doing with your life; why don't you wake up here every morning?

As for the town of Todos Santos, it's quaint, quirky and sleepy, sleepy, sleepy. It has one stop light. Only three of its roads are paved. It may not be for you, honestly. It's a small town of locals, lots of retired/ex-pat gringos, dogs in various health conditions, sand covered roads in various conditions of grading and probably more places to eat per capita than wherever it is you live.

But get a decent car and head down any one of those dirt roads that bounce the hell out of you and you'll end up at a perfect beach, a perfect little hotel for sunset cocktails on the veranda, a farm, another perfect beach -- they all go somewhere pretty great.

As for the food, Cafe Santa Fe is outstanding -- forget what people say about their prices, everything is pristine and every dish feeds two or more. Tacos George, a roadside stand so small you may miss it the first time, has outstanding fish tacos. Miguel's does a decent chile relleño. Barajas Tacos is your spot for carnitas pork goodness. But not to worry: you have your own kitchen in Casa Moderna. Most meals you'll want to take there because it's so damn peaceful.

My wife, myself and two friends honestly had an incredibly hard time leaving after ten days of doing pretty much nothing. No cell phone, no internet, no TV. We played checkers. We made cocktails at 3pm. We cooked dinner.

We never got around to the great surfing and horseback riding and hiking and ATV rentals and scuba diving and all the other things we said we were going to do down there. It was that hard to leave the house.

Ya know, now that I think about it some more? Don't go there. You'll hate it.

At least don't go in January or February 2013. That's our time!

One of my favorite places on Earth

  • 5 of 5
Recently I spent a month here from Feb-March with a friend to go on a writing retreat and we absolutely fell in LOVE with the area and house. Everything about it was so easy and peaceful. No bugs. Crashing surf. Friendly community. Unbelievable Shrimp Tacos. Organic vegetable stands. I was so enamored with the place I invited a few friends to visit for a weekend during the month. They in turn fell in love and one of them just recently had her birthday there for a week and invited ME as the guest so I got to go back 2 times in one year. I've traveled to all the continents and nowhere is as peaceful and relaxing as Todos Santos to me. Having a dry, mountainous desert climate on the pacific ocean with empty beaches is absolutely a winning combination. The ONLY down side is that it's hard to find beaches that are safe to swim at (dangerous currents and waves) and the pools aren't heated and often kinda chilly, other than that I could imagine myself living here half the year in these houses. The host, Jennifer is so incredibly wonderful and easy to communicate with, and her on site manager Nina is very friendly and helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful rental. Not to mention, VERY reasonable prices! A must!

Car: necessary

The house is located a few miles north of the 'Pueblo Magico' of Todos Santos in the Las Tunas area.

The house sits in front of the beach with views on La Cachora surf break, in a peaceful and contemplative desert landscape.

From the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, Todos Santos looks towards the Pacific Ocean amongst farm crops, palm groves, mango and avocado-trees.

Besides enjoying beaches and surfing in nearby proximity, you will love strolling past colonial buildings, the mission of Nuestra Señora del Pilar, art galleries, craft shops or beautiful gardens.

Painters, sculptors, artisans, writers, intellectuals and just plain common folk, all make Todos Santos an interesting study in diversity.

Todos Santos is wonderful destination year round which offers world-class dining, fine art galleries & interesting shops plus wonderful outdoor recreational activities & beaches.

Other Activities: boating, wildlife viewing, kayaking
