About Gabriel Lawson
Hi. My name is Gabriel. I moved to Todos Santos about 6 years ago after really taking a liking to it after a couple of surf trips. I built a house that is totally off grid and that recycles most of what it uses. Solar panels for lighting and satellite tv. propane refrigerators for refrigeration, and recycling of most grey water to an organic garden via sump pumps in collection barrels. We live in a water scarce area so this is essential. The pros: your host, me, is super laid back, helpful in all you need to know about the area, not mister nosey and respectful of your privacy. I have travelled around the planet on long backpacking trips from Amsterdam, to Laos, to Siberia, to Africa etc, etc, etc. I surf and mountain bike which happens to be great in this area, I am a documentary movie junkie, and I like to listen to somewhat obscure indie rock bands. I have a son with a baby mama that live down the hill and spend a lot of time with him so he chilling with me at the house part of the time. He'll probably ask you to play baseball with him as he just got into T-ball. I have 2 dogs and a couple other canine visitors at times because I serve up some really good dog food! so If you have a pet that is cool as long it is a dog. I like cats but don't trust the dogs with them. Their names are Buddy and Tigre. They are rescues. Dogs are pretty simple much like myself. Lets see, I don't really like talking about myself too much but here are a couple more things. One of my favorite movies is Bitter Moon by Roman Polanski, one of my favorite bands is the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and I love to cook. Used to own a restaurant and a cafe and currently working on another business/cafe.
Gabriel Lawson purchased this Guest House in 2014
Why Gabriel Lawson chose Todos Santos
I like the fact that I was so close to town yet so far away. Here you will not hear blaring banda music at night. Mostly just crickets and the distant waves of the Pacific.
What makes this Guest House unique
Hiking and biking right in your back yard as well as easy access to the highway. Peaceful and private with no close neighbors. Lots of bird activity for birdwatchers as we are the highest point in the area. You can also see the whales migrating with and without binoculars but better with.

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
not as pictured, in the middle of a lot of construction, address is made up, poor communications.
This person was extremely needy, left my place in shambles, especially the toilet(gross), and would not recommend him to anyone as a host. Zero hygiene.
Very peaceful place
After the craziness of Cabo, the quiet and solitude was a welcome relief. Great sunsets and the dogs are so sweet.
Everything was as described: very quiet place. Good location, functional appliances, clean bed, friendly dogs. You and the starry skies; you and the blue around. Satisfied overall and will definitely return. Unfortunately, I did not have a chance to meet with Gabriel as he was away.
The only thing is almost a total absence of the road to the house. You can't have a fancy rental, need to have an SUV. Arrive at daytime. If you miss to arrive during the daytime, you risk to spend the rest of the night outside.
Thanks for the positive review! Glad you enjoyed your stay. Update; the road has been completed graded with signs to the property so it is easy with your average rental and the signs have reflectors for night time arrivals. Hope to see you next year!
We are an hour away from either La Paz or Cabo San Lucas. We are 10 minutes drive from town. There are several tours including whale watching and sports fishing that I can set you up with. Two things that I always recommend are going to Las Palmas beach which is the closest swimmable beach and the most beautiful. Heading out of town towards Cabo you take a right on a small dirt road at kilometer 58. Take the road until you reach the palm grove parking lot and walk it from there. Also, check out the turtle release which happens almost daily at sunset. You take playitas road and take a left on calle de los mangoes. Take the road until you get to the beach and walk north. You will see a white tent where they hatch and release the turtles.
