About The Owner
Raised in Brasil, Peru, Scotland, Phillipines and the US. Played pro tennis four years and developed a rehab sports medicine company which was sold. Todos Santos simply has the best and healthiest weather in the world! The rancho is set up like Narnia. Its an escape into nature and peace. Designed as a lifestyle retreat and professional sports team building retreat, the rancho expresses nothing but good harmony. From the humane society dogs, to the ranch hands, to the thousands of trees, to the brick casitas (which we put mud inside the concrete so that they would be more zen and peaceful and calming). ....this is an experience in learning what Todos Santos is all about.... a rural setting with modern amenities.
The Owner purchased this villa in 1998
Why The Owner chose Todos Santos
Todos Santos has more centenarians (over 100 years) per capita than anywhere in North America. i found that fact unique and interesting 18 years ago and realized that the rural lifestyle, the large families that grew up together in this small town, the predominant church in the main square, the absolutely perfect, dry weather all year - all lent themselves to people living long and well here. I began buying land from local farmers 15 years ago and aggregated it into one rancho. 'Sundance' as we call it.
Close to the main square, yet still in the rural part of Todos Santos. And yet right on the beach! Peaceful, quiet, with a long 400 yard driveway of Royal Palms and Coco Palms (yes, you can have fresh coconut juice!). You see, Todos Santos is unique. There is a lot of water. The rancho is located about 15 meters above the lowest part, the bajio, where a river literally runs underground. But that zone is cold in the morning as the mountain air flows off the Sierra Laguna range to the east. Too much water is also difficult to control. This rancho is just at the perfect location.
Its so quiet and there are hundreds of doves that live on the property in all the mango trees. Mornings are full of dove cooing. In spring, like April, the mango trees are flowering and our 4 bee boxes provide hundreds of bees for every tree. You can walk right up to a tree and the honey bees are so busy they can't even care about you.
What makes this villa unique
The Rancho is about open air, space and peaceful nature. You can't help it. You're surrounded by twenty five acres of heavenly mango trees. Your guest villa is beautifully appointed with locally made furniture including the four post beds. The Rancho manager, Hugo, is there to help you with anything. He is the nicest, most helpful man you will ever meet. You are close to town, yet you are totally in a mango ranch designed as a Yoga and Lifestyle Retreat. There is a grass tennis court, swimming pool, corrals, horses and peaceful walking/hiking. You can drive to Cerritos Beach for surfing in 10 minutes or Pastora in 5 minutes down a dirt road. The restaurants in Todos Santos honestly include the best in all of the Baja! Hotel California and Santa Fe Cafe are insanely good.
Enjoy life the way it was meant to be. Wake up to the smell of coffee with the ranch hands. Smell the air from the mango trees. Listen to the doves calling all morning. Walk to town, go surfing, ride mountain bikes. You are in heaven.
