Overview

Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

1 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 2-3

Come escape from the stresses of your everyday life to a tranquil, private resort-like setting.

Pamper yourself in this serene oceanfront oasis, away from the noise and dust of Todos Santos, where the magnificent sunrises over the Sierra de la Laguna mountains to our east often outperform our spectacular sunsets. Watch the whales and dolphins from the privacy of the second-floor shaded terrace of your casita. Relax by the pool with a book from our large selection. Stargaze from a two-person hammock. Cool off or swim laps in the 45-foot lap pool, with the Talavera-tiled outdoor shower and bathroom nearby. Wiggle your toes in the warm sand of our private beach. Enjoy a margarita poolside, relaxing at the bar of our palapa-covered outdoor kitchen with BBQ, where you cook the fish you caught today.

Privacy and Comfort: Your casita provides you with complete privacy and features a custom kitchen with marble counter tops, fully equipped including full-size refrigerator and stove, coffee maker, coffee grinder, microwave, toaster, blender. Although the casita is technically a studio, the sleeping area is completely separated from the living area by a low wall, providing some added privacy to both areas. The Talavera-tiled bathroom has a large shower and a hand-painted Mexican sink. We also supply a hairdryer and cozy terrycloth robes for your comfort. The spacious lockable walk-in closet gives you plenty of storage and a safe area for your valuables. Our gated property provides ample secure parking.

Your Home Away From Home: Our guests often tell us they enjoy being close enough to Todos Santos or Cabo San Lucas to enjoy what they offer, but love coming 'home' the the serenity and privacy we provide here.

There is tennis nearby. Private yoga or classes are also available. Enjoy a massage in the privacy of your casita. Other spa treatments on site can be arranged.

Our beach is a natural nesting ground for the protected sea turtles. You are invited to participate in the release of turtle hatchlings - always a thrill!

Villa Puesta del Sol is a non-smoking property. Children over 12 welcome.

This property and owner are properly registered with the Mexican government.

Please contact us for availability as the calendar is not updated.

Melanie and Guenter,

Thank you so much for such an amazing week. Melanie, thanks for being so organized and answering all my e-mails.

Your casita made us feel at home and your hospitality was second to none.

We hope you have a good trip to Oregon and maybe Guenter we will see you up skiing Whistler soon.

I'd give this place 10 stars if it were an option!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Villa Puesta del Sol with my husband and 15 year old daughter for a week from 3/31/15-4/7/15. I just can't say enough about how wonderful this place was! The casita was so clean, so spacious for the three of us, the beds were so comfortable, the kitchen so well appointed, the bathroom was large and so clean, the "safe" closet was huge and made it easy to tuck away our luggage and belongings safely and keep everything out of the main living area, the patio was such a nice place to enjoy all of our meals while enjoying the ocean breeze and the views. Did I mention the views? WOW! Gorgeous! We even saw a few whales (I hear we missed the migration of the whales by a few weeks), but the sunsets and the stars were really the scene stealers. There isn't much ambient light in the area at night so the stars are just gorgeous and the beautiful un-obstructed view of the sunsets-whether enjoyed from the patio, the pool, the beach, the hammock...all were amazing. The area itself is rural yet sits between the Puebla Magica of Todos Santos and the resorts of Cabo. It was nice to go out and explore in both directions but really, coming "home" was the real treat, we always felt so happy to be back at our casita, enjoying the pool, the sunset, the barbecue, the breezes- it was magical. And the person who makes this all possible is Melanie! The hostess with the mostest! She communicated with us prior to our arrival, answering all of our questions whether or not they fell under her "jurisdiction", she is an ambassador for the area and attends to every detail to ensure your happiness. She is present if you need her and otherwise is unseen so you always feel as if the property is your own. She is welcoming and warm and is the ultimate differentiator as to why I would pick this property over any other. The beauty, perfection and calmness of this property do not come without someone at the helm who makes sure it all stays that way and that is Melanie.

Besides visiting Todos Santos, Cerritos Beach and a trip into Cabo, I would really recommend dining at Hierbabuena in Pescadero, buying fresh organic produce at

Agricole, having coffee at and visiting the

Sunday market at Baja Beans, and otherwise ask Melanie about all the wonderful places you should eat and shop in the area.

I'd give this place 10 stars if it were an option!

Serenity and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Villa Puesto Del Sol was amazing. Everything we were looking for and more. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we wanted something more slower paced than the hussle and bussle of Cabo, but still close enough if we chose to go there. Needless to say, we never made to Cabo. Melanie made our stay wonderful. She had so many suggestions on places to see and things to do. She suggested a few hidden gems we would have never found on our own. The sunrises and sunsets were breath taking. Star gazing at night on the beach. We loved hearing the sound of the ocean and walking the beach everyday.The casita was everything it was advertised as; very well taken care of and cozy. We left feeling like we had became part of Melaine's famliy. One of our better trips to the Baja.

wonderful oceanside living

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful "test-stay" of 4 days at this lovely, convenient and well-planned venue. The setting and amenities were just as advertised and as reviewed and our hostess is very kind and helpful. We wanted a break from hotels and dining out three times a day and this gives you an indoor and outdoor kitchen yet you are near Todos Santos and its many good restaurants. Before leaving we booked a longer stay for next year.

Palm Trees, Sun, Warm Air - Paradise Found, Again!

  • 5 of 5

As we write, snow is falling, the wind is up, the temperature is down, and we wish we had cancelled our flight home from Villa Puesta del Sol!

On this, our third visit to VPDS, the only thing warmer that the sun and the air were Melanie’s many kindnesses to us as she shared her wonderful and beautiful part of Baja California Sur. Six miles of golden brown sand beach to run and walk; the sounds and sights of the ocean; at night, stars – literally thousands lighting up the night sky – as though someone painted them on to a perfect black background. The sheer beauty and serenity have to be experienced to be believed.

The cultural opportunities and the wonderful food of Pescadero and Todos Santos are close at hand and easily reached via a modern four-lane highway. Surfing, swimming, sunning, galleries and more – all are here. If you are fortunate to stay at Villa Puesta del Sol, from the beauty of the casita, to the beauty of the land and sea, to the beauty of artistic perfection, outstanding experiences await you.

A Crucible of Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned for our second visit to Puesta del Sol, and went ahead and booked it for a third time before we left. Melanie is the perfect host, as well as a great source of local information. Be sure to take advantage of the fish monger if you are there on a Saturday. Puesta del Sol is remote without being far away from town. You will see more whales than people when you walk the beach in front of the property. This place is perfect!

Unbelievable Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Melanie, thank you so much for hosting such a fantastic trip for my brother and I. The cabana was just what we needed, really comfortable, all the amenities, and super clean. It was the perfect jump off spot for our various excursions to Cerritos, Todos Santos and La Paz. La Paz was the best and Roberto took great care of us. Never thought I would get to swim with Sea Lions and whale sharks. Those things are huge! Returning home each night to the pool, eating by the palapa, and viewing the killer sunsets wasn't too bad either. By the way, thanks for sending the whale cruising by on our last day. I've stayed in lots of places in Mexico, and this one is at the top of my list.
