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!
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
