Overview

Todos Santos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

A Storybook Style Estate

Let yourself relax in a palace on the beach. It is the hundreds of small details that makes this artist’s home so unique and interesting. Wherever you look there is a sensuous curve in a relaxing fleshy hue. Located just two hundred yards from the Pacific, ocean views stretch out in three directions and sunset beach walks are just a minute away. Casa Nova will accommodate up to ten people with its two bedrooms and large separate palapa style guesthouse.

The great room hosts ocean views out every window and a fully furnished gourmet kitchen. This extra large space is designed for group activity. Granite countertops and a six burner commercial range make preparing a big dinner of fresh local fish and salad from the local market an easy enjoyable event. The island counter carved from local eucalyptus wood is perfect for sushi parties and socializing while many hands do the work. The kitchen stretches on to an extravagantly large mahogany dining room table (seats 12). At night a magnificent blown glass chandelier casts an even glow about the room. Two soft sofas lead to a massive stone fireplace in the corner. Firewood is provided for a small fire to warm the body, spirit, and conversation.

Master Suite

You will instantly feel like royalty as you enter the master suite. The master bedroom is spacious with plenty of room for spreading out. The ocean is visible in three directions from the king sized bed. This room features a walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom, and a masterfully built vaulted brick dome ceiling. Sliding glass pocket doors lead to a private sunset balcony over looking the vast Pacific Ocean. These features make this room a wonder to stay in.

Guest Room

From the Queen sized bed one can view the ocean through two arched windows. Opening onto the upper terrace the room is truly an outdoor, indoor space. Morning sunrises in this room are colorfully luscious and sunsets are beautiful too. With its sage green crown molding and Navajo style inlay design, it gives off a southwestern feel.

Guesthouse

This building stands alone resembling a hobbit’s house with its double arched doors and canted walls. Twelve equal sides create a virtually round space 25 ft across. Ample windows splash light across the building’s one large room. Benches surround the room on eight sides. They are excellent for stashing your personal belongings out of the way during your stay. On three sides are counters one containing a sink. This room contains three double beds. It is an excellent space for kids. Surfboards can be slid into the rafters to keep them out of the light and harms way. Anyone given this space will be comfortable and content.

Bath House

Immerse yourself in our luxurious bathhouse. This building was designed with opulence in mind, helping you linger, taking care of all your personal needs. Modern lines are complemented with age-old flagstones. Fragrant jasmine springs from between the stones to cover the trellis with its love-inducing aroma. Shower while looking up at the sky. Like a Roman bath, this building with its enclosed trellised courtyard accommodates many people at one time. With ample benches, counters and hooks, all will have room to spread out their personal belongings and stay awhile. In one corner of this grand high walled courtyard the sauna is found at the top of a short stair. Passing through a charming arched door you will find yourself in a clean, compact, yet spacious sauna room. The wood stove that heats the sauna is stoked from outside the sauna room but within the privacy of the courtyard. You will find plenty of wood stacked in the bin for your use.

We loved it. The woodwork was beautiful and the area was very Mexico.

Unique and well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

More than enough room for our party of four adults/two teenagers. The home has everything you will possibly need and is in a nice, quiet neighbhood just outside of Todos. You will want your own transportation for trips into town, but the beach is a short/easy walk away.

The artistry that went into the building of the house coupled with how well-appointed it is makes it a very comfortable stay. Would highly recommend.

Lucky us for choosing Casa Nova

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorgeous location just a short car ride outside of Todos Santos. The closest beach is a stones throw. It's quiet & clean but alas, not recommended for swimming. Take a drive to the other lovely nearby beaches for your dip. If you happen to visit during turtle hatching season, you're in luck. The local organizations that spearhead this project keep the turtle nesting sites right nearby.

The property itself is stunning, a hand built wonder. Many days/evenings were spent preparing food in the well stocked kitchen & relaxing on one of the comfortable patios. There are a few veggie stands along your drive from town to Casa Nova & a delightful corner shop where you can pick up hot-off-the-grill tortillas for your meals.

All-in-all, Todos Santos is a very special place to vacation. You'll have ample choices for activities, depending upon your preference. And this home is the ideal base for your many adventures.

Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely fabulous and more grand than we had expected! We came to Todos Santos as a group of mid thirties professional adventure/ lounge seekers and had everything that we could ask for and more! The smell from the jasmine vines in the bathhouse alone made it completely worthwhile! Although you can't swim in the ocean nearby, the beach is nearly private. The property managers were also very accommodating and were available for anything that you needed. I have suggested this property to multiple associates and will most definitely return for another glorious vacation to this place! Very highly recommended!

Casa Nova in Todos Santos, Baja Sur

  • 5 of 5

It's a lovely place. The house has lots of pleasing design details, making it a pleasure to use and just sit around. All aspects of the transaction were simple & the property manager was responsive & reasonable. Lots of ocean views and you can see blue water even from the ground floor. Several grocery stores & fruit stand nearby made it easy to eat fresh food. (We liked the fruit & veggie stand where as you head from the house into Todos Santos proper, and make a right turn onto a different road it is on the left, at the corner. It's dark, with lots of plywood & black material.)

A real find in Todos Santos!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a unique and beautiful gem, not just in design but in its location as well. I was looking for a house to rent in Cabo San Lucas because none of my group (husband, brother/sister-in-law) had been there, and luckily Casa Nova in Todos Santos popped up even though it's an hour north of Cabo. It looked great, so we took a chance and were so happy we did. We had our small dog with us, and that presented no problem to the owners. Todos Santos is a charming, small Mexican town, just emerging on the tourism scene, so still relatively undeveloped but with lots of restaurants and local arts/crafts shops. The house is about 10 minutes from town, and you do have to drive; roads are mostly dirt and pretty bumpy, so be sure to rent a sturdy vehicle. The house is the equivalent of about a block walk to the beach, and at night you can hear the crashing of waves. The beach is gorgeous and scenic, but not a swimming beach because of the undertow -- if you want to swim the only beach is Los Cerritos, about 20 minutes away. Two afternoons we drove to a cove about 15 minutes away where the local fisherman come in around 3:00, and we bought just-caught fish right off the boat. If you're looking for a relaxing stay in an upscale property, this is it. I would definitely return.
