ROMANTIC BEACHFRONT RETREAT WITH POOL, NEAR TODOS SANTOS

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.

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.

2 Visits In 3 Months!

Villa Puesta Del Sol is that wonderful, that beautiful, that unique. My wife and I were blessed to be at VPDL for a second time in three months this past week. The weather was wonderful – sunny every day – warm every day – a gentle breeze every day. The casita sparkled. The view from the balcony, which included the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Sierra Le Laguna mountains to the east and south, was exceptional. Sunsets were breathtaking.

Six miles of quiet, secluded sand beach made the perfect place for morning runs and afternoon walks. The lap pool and the patio areas around the pool made for a great place to take in the sun, read books, and enjoy conversation.

As terrific as all of the above attributes are, the most outstanding thing about Villa Puesta Del Sol are the hosts and owners, Melanie and Guenter. They share their time and knowledge creating memorable experiences for guests. We are fortunate to count them as friends.

If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet, unique, warm and welcoming place, you will find it at Villa Puesta Del Sol. We look forward to our next visit!

Amazing location! Our stay exceeded already high expectations from reading prior great reviews!

  • 5 of 5
The title says it all: Our stay at Melanie and Guenter's Villa Puesta del Sol was absolutely incredible and exceeded our already high expectations after reading all of the prior reviews. Yes, the prior reviews are all true! This place is amazing!

We are 29/30 years old and stayed at the casita for a short 5 day honeymoon after our wedding. Given our time constraints, we were hoping for a relatively close beach vacation somewhat off the beaten path with opportunities for equal parts relaxation and adventure as well as (key for us) great food - this casita was the perfect choice!

First, a note about Melanie and Guenter: These are truly incredible individuals, and meeting and conversing with them was one of the many highlights of the trip. Their hospitality, warmth, and knowledge of the surrounding areas was evident from the moment we arrived. Want the best taco, seafood, margarita, day trip, (insert anything else)? M&G have 17+ years of recommendations for everything in the areas surrounding the casita, up to Todos Santos, and beyond. It's like a New York Times 36 hours on steroids. Every recommendation was great.

The casita lies directly on 6 or so miles of pristine, beautiful, wide sandy beach along the Pacific Ocean. This location is perfect for anyone who prefers not to sit at a Cabo beach resort with 300 other people. We saw one person on the beach during our entire stay! M&G give you total privacy, as well. M&G have all the gear to make your beach-time activities perfect: beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc. You will also wake up and go to sleep to the sound of crashing waves. Oh, and the area is pitch black at night...great star gazing. This list is endless...

When you're done relaxing, this casita is also a great jumping off point for adventures throughout southern Baja. It is a short ~10-20 min. drive to Ceritos and Todos Santos, respectively (again, M&G have all of the best recommendations for food and activities in these locations) as well as an easy day trip up to La Paz (where we snorkeled with a whale shark, among other things). Despite just missing whale season on the Pacific, we still saw humpback and fin whales in the Sea of Cortez. We could have spent weeks more and not done everything in the area...

OVERALL: Amazing, private beach for relaxing! Great side-trips/food!. Perfect honeymoon location. M&G are phenomenal, warm people with fantastic recommendations.

We can't wait to come back!

Welcoming and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We are familiar with and love this area and wanted to come back for a vacation, now with our 8-month old daughter. To make things easy, we were searching for a place on the beach and we are so happy we found Melanie and Guenther's guest house!

This casita is perfect for a relaxing stay - and worked perfectly for us (couple and baby). We had plenty of space for the pack n play and our daughter loved the pool! We cooked most of our meals in the casita and even packed lunch for the beach in the cooler that we borrowed from Melanie and Guenther - they also provided beach towels, beach chairs and umbrella.

The casita is very well up kept and taken care of. You can tell that Melanie and Guenther love to meet new people and making sure your stay is as comfortable as possible and it also shows in the property. Everything works well and they want to make sure it stays that way. It makes it super comfortable for you as a guest. You can tell a lot of love is going into this casita! Melanie and Guenther make it very easy to feel right at home from the start.

This was one of our most relaxing vacations in Mexico and our daughter loved it. We would highly recommend this casita and would love to come back again soon!

Outstanding property and location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Baja and we could not have been happier with our choice of properties. The casita is on the nicest beach and in the best neighborhood in the entire area. The views from both inside and outside are amazing!

Melanie and Gunther are wonderful people and great hosts. They are very knowledgeable about the area and it was nice to have locals to discuss our daily plans with. Their local restaurant gide was very helpful!

We flew into Cabo and made the easy, 1.5 hour drive on the new four-lane highway up to Melanie and Gunther's place. After seeing the hustle-bustle of Cabo on our way through, we were very happy with our decision to go north to the Todos Santos area. Cabo is just another overbuilt, American playgrond while Todos Santos retains most of the feel of a real Baja community.

We are already planning on a return trip next winter to enjoy the beautiful location, hospitality and the whales.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
There isn't much that we can say that hasn't already been said. But we will say that if you read what everyone else is saying about Villa Puesta del Sol you still have to experience it for yourself. Just out of curiosity we went and looked at some of the other places that we considered renting and we found, hands down, that this is the best place to stay near Todos Santos. While the casita is secluded and private (in fact we walked for hours on the beach without seeing a single person), it is close to Cabo for night life, close to Todo Santos for culture, and close to Melanie and Guenter if you need anything. Melanie and Guenter are amazing loving people and will do there best to make your stay enjoyable.

A truly relaxing and enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I needed a place to recharge the batteries, enjoy some sun, and truly not have any agenda. We decided to stay for 4 nights at Melanie and Guenther's casita, followed by 2 nights in Cabo. Our stay was perfect. During our time at the casita, we slept in, walked the beach, relaxed by the pool, made short trips to Todos Santos and Ceritos beach, and just enjoyed the tranquility. With the exception of the people we inevitably saw during our trips into Todos Santos and Ceritos Beach, we only saw 10 people...at a distance. Just what we were looking for! The casita is fully stocked with pans and utensils, like any kitchen back home. Not a thing was missing in order to cook all meals and fix drinks. The pool is perfect, floating lounge chairs, unlimited sun...very nice and refreshing. The biggest decision we had to make each day was whether to watch the sunset from the balcony of the casita, the lounge chairs by the pool or the lounge chairs closer to the beach...tough choice. We spent one night resting in the hammock just staring at the stars, not a light in the the area to diminish the show of stars! All in all, just what we needed to relax and recharge. Melanie and Geunther are gracious hosts, live on the property, but are as invisible as can be. When we did see them it was because we needed to ask a question or to share a welcome drink or bon voyage glass of wine. We really felt like we were the only people within a 3 mile radius. Todos Santos and Ceritos beach are both just short drives away, if you need to see people, surf or shop. Otherwise the casita is a perfect place to unwind, relax and recharge the proverbial batteries! Our only negative comment would have to be we should have stayed longer!!! Don't hesitate, book now. Chuck and Jana, Lake Oswego, Oregon.
