Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-14)

CalyCanto Casitas consists of a boutique compound of only three Villas. All in a spacious yet intimate setting.

This listing is for the villa 'Casita del Pescado' located on five gently sloping acres of desert terrain, 700 yards above the Pacific Ocean. The property is 2.5 miles from the town of Todos Santos, offering magnificent ocean views and generous terraces. This villa is tasteful in every detail and appointed with modern amenities, it is spacious and fully furnished.

Embodying the architectural heritage of Mexico, rustic design seamlessly blends with modern conveniences to stimulate the senses. Expansive and richly appointed, the casita offers an indoor-outdoor flow, with colorfully painted designs and finishes, decorative wrought-iron, and antique mesquite furniture painstakingly handcrafted by Mexican artisans.

Walk barefoot on Saltillo floors. Enjoy breakfast on colorfully hand painted Talavera tiles. Siesta in a hand-woven hammock for two as gentle shadows from the Palapa roof drift across the room and the ocean breeze blows gently across the terrace. Take an indoor/outdoor shower while watching the silhouette of Royal Palms and native catcti dot the sunset.

These lavish accommodations offer the perfect rooftop vantage point to contemplate the moon’s reflection on the deep blue waters of the Pacific. From the master bedroom or your private terrace, gaze upon a pristine, white sand beach, or simply enjoy a refreshing siesta in one of the shaded hammocks under a Palapa. Or, if you prefer, enjoy a moonlit dinner on your private terrace before you sneak inside to the comfort of 500 thread count sheets.

While some guests choose to never leave the premises, others prefer to participate in limitless adventure and exploration. Look out your window to watch the annual migration of the Humpback and Gray Whales or check the surf. Witness pottery being first hand, with the same process used for centuries in the nearby Sierra de la Laguna mountain range. Take a Yoga or a Spanish class in the timeless town center. Savor some of the best restaurants in Baja. Relax to a custom compilation of music in your own sensuously elegant and comfortably spacious private palapa.

CalyCanto Casitas are not about high-speed internet or cable television (although broadband and a flatscreen TV is available). What we offer is an escape to simplicity, a path to tranquility, a destination where time stands still. Where you can be lulled to rest by the rhythm of waves in the distance or simply lean back and look toward the heavens to gaze at the shimmering stars. Where you can share and build memories. Where you can find yourself.

About The Owner

Passionate about sustainable tourism, Baja, travel, surfing, sailing, diving, creativity and passion. Lover of Todos Santos.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Todos Santos

Todos Santos is one of the last special places on earth. It is not Cabo San Lucas. No time-shares, no strip clubs, no jet skis, no beach vendors, and no traffic. Just a relaxed style of living that is very hard to find in the hectic 21st century. Underneath the town’s sleepy exterior there exists a vibrant microcosm of many activities you might find in any city. Todos Santos has always been considered a special place, as reflected by its live theater, art galleries, centers for workshops and seminars, and historical homes. Todos Santos boasts high-speed Internet cafes, access to wireless networks, DSL and satellite connections. But, primarily, it is a place for people to find peace and to pursue individual self-expression.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the unique architecture and meticulous attention to design, the property was developed by people that care about the community of Todos Santos and preserving the special values that it fosters. There's an advanced water treatment facility that allows us to use grey water for irrigation for the indigenous vegetation. All light bulbs are low voltage. There's only organic cleaning products used on the premises. Guests are provided with recycled shopping bags when they arrive.

Felt like home for a week

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Casita Tortuga - which has a master bedroom upstairs with a queen bed and AMAZING outdoor shower. Second bedroom downstairs has 2 twin beds. The house is beautiful and comfortable. We really loved the indoor/outdoor feel of it. Located just a short (5 ish minute) drive north of Todos Santos. It is even a shorter drive to the sweet surf spot, La Pastora. 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach is beautiful, but it is not recommended as a swimming beach because of currents. About a 15 minute drive to the swim and beginner surf spot, Los Cerritos. Kathy, the caretaker, is very kind and informative. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, blender, etc. There are several grocery stores nearby. The upper deck was great for reading in the hammock or a morning yoga sesh. The ground floor wrap around patio had a nice big dining table and a couple of really comfortable lounge chairs. WiFi was great. TV with a few English speaking stations. It was really nice to show up and they had stocked the house with 2 large bottles of drinking water. The surrounding area was really quiet - we rarely saw or heard anyone. The weather/temperature was perfect. It was hot a few days, but mostly warm (80s) with a little wind here and there to cool things off. Cool at night - enough for a hoodie. Only turned on AC one of the warmer nights but had to turn off in the middle of the night as it cooled off.

Todos Santos Villa Calycanto Casitas

  • 5 of 5
Rave reviews for this incredible rental property! Beautiful and well maintained villa 5 minutes by car from DT Todos Santos and a 5 minute walk to the beach where you can walk for hours. Five women on a girls get-a-way enjoyed a week of watching stunning sunsets over the ocean from the upstairs deck, eating at incredible restaurants, shopping at local markets and preparing our own meals and visiting local attractions in the area. The property is every bit as beautiful as pictured. We especially appreciated the flexibility and helpfulness of both the owner and the property manager. Would love to return with the family!

Everything claimed it would be....and more!

  • 5 of 5
We are frequent visitors to Todos Santos but this was our first stay at Calycanto Casitas. Dealing with Jim (the owner) via telephone and e-mail to make arrangements was very positive. He was helpful and made the process very easy. The property itself was above and beyond the description. A pleasant surprise to find an outdoor private shower off the upstairs master suite where we stayed. Enjoyed daily private outdoor hot showers watching the whales go buy. Nice way to start a morning! House is fully furnished and very comfortable with three outdoor areas to relax. Two furnished patios downstairs and one up (with hammock and table/chairs). The property is nicely landscaped and the house fully stocked with items needed to prepare and enjoy meals you might want to prepare at home. Breakfast bar for meals and cocktails. Full dining table on the front patio. Big comfy lounge couch for evening reading, etc. Beautifully appointed architectural touches throughout the home. Conveniently located to town, restaurants, groceries and all Mexican or Gringo needs. Wifi worked very well. No report on satellite TV and I-pod playback system as we didn't use. No hesitation considering this property when we return next year. Keep this one on your very short list!

CAL Y CANTO CASITAS ARE THE BEST WAY TO EXPERIENCE TODOS SANTOS

  • 5 of 5
The CalyCanto Casitas are the ideal place to experience Todos Santos. It doesn't feel like you're in a vacation rental, even though there are some very nice ones available; it feels like you're being hosted in someone's beloved home, and you are. The owners' great love and respect for the region is everywhere apparent: in the beautifully simple, strong furniture Mexico is famous for, in the equally and deservedly famous saltillo and talavera tiles that serve as the flooring both inside and outside, in the abundance of architectural details, the rich colors, in the charm of the bathroom and the outdoor shower overlooking the ocean, in the outside wood shutters on every window, including the sliding glass door leading onto the terrace, for maximum comfort and control.

Cozy inside, expansive outside, I alternate between sleeping in a big soft queen bed in the beautiful bedroom or out on the roomy terrace under the stars. The nighttime sky itself is a marvel; without the compromise of city lighting the heavens are brilliantly alive. . . .You can almost always hear the surf, night and day, and many a night i've made my way in the moonlight the short distance to the sea.

Jim, one of the owners, is wonderful to deal with. From the very beginning of our acquaintance, it was clear there was an unusually open and friendly person on the other end of the email. Throughout all my dealings with him to get the various details worked out, as I am a long-term tenant (something I highly recommend), he has consistently treated me as a friend. He is as special as the town and the casitas are.

The casitas themselves are perfectly located about 2 and 1/2 miles from the town proper. I love being in Todos Santos with all it's gently bubbling life, and I love being outside of it in the deep silence and peace of the country. Getting into town is a 5 minute or so car ride. I highly recommend hitchhiking; I'm seldom on the road more than 5 minutes before a car comes along and through this method I've come to know many of the locals, as well as the large community of passionately devoted outsiders.

To be here in Todos Santos is to live largely outside of time, to live largely inside the abudance of nature, and to dwell with people with whom one feels an effortless sense of easy community. It has been fantastic to be here in the "off season:" It is hot but not as hot as many American cities, and between ocean breezes and palapa fans, i am never uncomfortable.

CALYCANTO RIVALS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD !!

  • 5 of 5
CalyCanto Casitas are every bit what has been written about them! There is no question that the amazing beaches the weather, the proximity to Todos Santos and many great restaurants, fresh fruit and vegie markets, some of the friendliest people in the world and lots of peace and quiet are what makes this such a unique vacation destination! I would however like to give you a unique perspective on both Todos Santos and CalyCanto! At 64 years of age and from Canada originally, I have been retired for almost 20 years and have lived in over 60 countries over these last 20 years! From Africa, to Asia, the US, the Caribbean Hawaii several times, Australia and New Zealand and many years in numerous countries in Europe! I have rented more properties around the globe than most people could ever imagine (every month and every year for almost 20 years as I have no primary residence anywhere on this planet)!
Given this rather unique perspective, I can say without hesitation that our last four months at CalyCanto have rivaled anywhere else I have stayed in the world!! If there is anyone qualified to make such a statement, I feel I am! While there is so much already said about CalCanto and Todos Santos on other posts, one can only appreciate just how good this place is by being here! We have all been disappointed numerous times by being fooled by all the pretty pictures and wonderful accolades about a property! NOT this time. CanyCanto is everything that is said about it and then some! So much so that we are returning to CalyCanto for the winter and are planning to make Todos Santos home in 2011! If you truly wish to experience everything you read about Todos Santos and CalyCanto , then I highly recommend you come and see it for yourself The management and US ownership guarantees that added peace of mind that one comes to expect from a property of this quality!
